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!

“De ce terrible paysage,
Tel que jamais mortel n’en vit,
Ce matin encore l’image,
Vague et lointaine, me ravit.”
