Engagement Portait Photographer Edinburgh

Edinburgh has some fabulous locations throughout the city centre for environmental style portraits. Impressive architecture both in the New Town and the Old part of the city such as the Royal Mile, creates a unique backdrop for your engagement portraits.
A few days ahead of Lea and David's April wedding in Edinburgh city centre, we met up for an engagement portrait photo session, this is an ideal opportunity to break the ice, and yes it was a very cold day too. David was uneasy about getting photographed, not so unusual, so the session is a great confidence booster for the up coming wedding. I think that when a couple see how good they look in professional photographs, it makes my work so much less stressful.
I wanted to use the photo session to experiment with new techniques such as panorama montage, which allows me to get a wide view using a 50mm lens and shoot 6 to 30+ images to build the final picture with a WOW factor.

Swiss Couple -Edinburgh Wedding Destination

A Kiss For His Bride

 Evelyne and Fabian from Switzerland chose Scotland for wedding in the merry month of May. Although they planned to marry at Letham House the venue was not available on their date, so they married at Dalkeith Registry. They had a German speaking translator for the civil ceremony which lasted about half an hour. Then we began with some photos outside the garden outside the office. Luckily the weather smiled on us and we had some warmish sunshine for the rest of the afternoon even though winter wanted to remain a bit longer. Obviously communication was a little tricky and my German was a little rusty we coped well and the photographs say it all. Before leaving I was given a huge bag of Swiss Chocolate. Danke Ewi und Fabian.
