Romain and Morgan came for their honeymoon to Scotland, all the way from Lyon. Their wedding took place in a small town in the French Alps, but they decided they also wanted to celebrate their love with a romatnic photoshoot in Edinburgh Old Town.
However, the circumstances for a romantic shoot this time were a bit challenging, with the festival still on (for anyone who is not an Edinbourgeois: this means tons of tourists on the cobbled streets), and we also had a massive downpour during the session. I did my best and so did they I think, with great patience and a good sense of humour. It was a memorable session for sure, and when they emailed me a few weeks after saying that they are immensely happy with the results, I knew I would have to post a selection of these photos on my blog.
Over the last two weeks, I have been working at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. It has been a very valuable experience for me as it gave me more insight into press photography and expected standards in the industry. I had the chance to work at different events and venues across Edinburgh, thus testing my skills – and my camera! – in sometimes quite challenging circumstances. I met a bunch of very talented people and of course some international stars as well! Not to mention the EIFF staff whose professional yet friendly attitude helped me a great deal during these two weeks. Can’t be grateful enough for this amazing experience!
