We are always happy when couples from far and around book us to document event, such a like the visit in Edinburgh. Usually when you go somewhere with beloved one you ask people on the street to take your photo now and then, which sometimes its not what you like. They either out of focus or not cropped the way you wanted. So Yani and her hubby had that great idea to book a photographer while they visit Edinburgh. They both travelled from Indonesia and they don’t have Christmas markets and all that festive mood over there. They were very excited to see what Edinburgh has to offer during that time. It was a boxing day when me and Ricky head to the city centre to meet Yani and her hubby. I have to tell you the weather was worst of the worst! But I was so determinate to go ahead with the shoot cuz this was the only day we could do it. I was only worry how the couple will cope with the wind, freeze and snow knowing that they are absolutely not use to this weather.
I like when girls shows their best appearance on the shoot. She booked my lovely friend Lyn McKenzie to do a make up and hair for the shoot. As always Lyn did a great job!
For two hours we were walking around the city and we had all the seasons during that time! It was crazy! I loved how brave and fun they were despite this cold.
I have to thank someone up there again for amazing ending which was beautiful sunset over the Castle on the hill!
Happy New Year to all our readers and hello in 2017! I hope you all had fantastic festive break and you’ve spend it with beloved ones making lots of good memories!
Today’s post is still with 2016 feel because we would like to present you the last wedding of 2016 which took place on the 28th of December at Fasque House. We drove there in the morning with an excitement as it was our first time in this Castle. The weather looked sunny but crisp and we were driving with big hope that we will carry this weather with us all the way up there. When we met with Kaeti and Phil few days before their wedding day for a engagement photo session in Edinburgh we’ve been super lucky, cuz the moment we finish shooting huge storm attack the city. I was so glad to see that our luck follow us all the way until their wedding day!
Fasque Castle is one of the top country house wedding venues, not just in Aberdeenshire, but in Scotland. It has classic style and unique feel of manor house, while being just a short drive away from the city.
Bride, groom and the whole wedding party was getting ready at the house. while a sneak between the rooms and started document the day….
As usual, when we arrive to the venue I like to go around the location to see the light and photograph all the fine details that are also so important during that day.
So this will be the last post of the 2016 and I will be ending it with my cousin’s wedding which took place in Poland – Warsaw at Villa Julianna in November. I was not only a photographer on that wedding but also a guest.
What can I say…. If its your favourite cousin, close family, beautiful bride, and stunning place things can’t go wrong! Me and Ricky had amazing time watching and photographing Marcin and Ewa becoming husband and wife. I share few tears as everybody else, dance till the early morning ( even injured my hip while dancing lol ) and ate fantastic polish food.
Marcin, Ewa you know- I love you and I’m so happy I could be with you on the day!
Kristi has been planning this little surprise for her husband for two years. They suppose to come visit Scotland from sunny California a year before but family things postponed it to this year. I was getting very excited when the date was getting closer cuz from her emails Kristi sounded as a sweet person. But not only because of that. It was my first trip to Isle of Skye! I know it might sounds ridiculous after 14 years in Scotland!
It was October the 11th when I pack my car and hit the road. Wet morning in Livingston but as soon as I was going north then the weather started to brighten up. Eventually I had an amazing blue sky and it kept being like this till I get to my destination – Elgol. I normally don’t like driving by myself for long hours but this journey was just beautiful! The views which makes your heart crippled and want to stop on every corner to take photo. I have visited Inverness up North before but never been actually on Skye and never had this wonderful weather! So, it was special!
My biggest great is that I’m able to meet so many wonderful people in my life. I believe that each of them give a message to you. I love spending time with them seeing their life from their perspective, seeing them in love, in an intimate moments when everything its just pure heart. I’m truly grateful for that.
The next morning when I got up from my beautiful B&B on the hill and looked through the window I thought this is just unreal!! The sunrise and this place! Woow
I couldn’t believe my luck knowing this weather going to last for all day! I prepare myself and head to meet Kristi and Brian for the first time face to face.
Kristi and Brian have been married for very long time. They been planned this trip to Scotland for some time and Kristi thought she will make even more special after finding out that Skye is very popular for elopements. She secretly plan vows renewal.
Arrived at the Coruisk House and lovely owner lady welcomed me so warmly. Seriously all the people on Skye are so lovely! Then Kristi came down… The moment I saw her I knew its going to be special. Very special about this day once I saw Brian as well.
Two people, madly in love… Their feelings for each others were stronger then the sun on the day and this words of Felix Adler from Life and Destiny perfectly describe how I see Kristi and Brian
Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other.
Love is an echo in the feelings of a unity subsisting between two persons which is founded both on likeness and on complementary differences. Without the likeness there would be no attraction; without the challenge of the complementary differences there could not be the closer interweaving and the inextinguishable mutual interest which is the characteristic of all deeper relationships.
and with this words I will leave you here and let you feel it by watching their story…
Thank you Kristi and Brian for wonderful experience with you <3
Today a little bit different post but still about documenting special moments in peoples lives. We have been photographing lots of different events such as birthday parties, charity events and christenings, but we can’t blog all of them because we basically don’t have so much time. But we do them and we want let people know about that.
So today we would like to share with you a small story about Alfonso’s special day – Baptism. I have arrived in the morning to his house where all family was getting ready to the church including Alfonso. The atmosphere in the house was very happy and everybody enjoyed a good mood this baby had. When all were dressed we took some family portraits and some with the sponsors. I think its great memory for all of them.
The ceremony took place at the St.Marys Church in Edinburgh. There was a priest which I love to work with. He is very cool man and made you listen to his wisdom words deeply. Alfonso was baptised and he didn’t even cry once! Very brave boy!
After the ceremony we took some more photos in the church and head to the Calrowrie Castle for celebration with larger part of the family and friends.
It was very special day for all the families. Alfonso got blessings not only from all of his closest people but from the God himself.
Thank you for having us yet again on this memorable moment.
Enjoy watching the photos!
There is something magical about winter weddings. Don’t know if that’s because Fairmont at the St.Andrews or Meghan and Tom who love Christmas and all the atmosphere about it! I believe it’s a bit of both 🙂 Especially that they both are very warm and happy people.
I’m very happy to share this small selection of photos from last Saturday wedding. Red shoes, red lipstick, cute dogs, fairy petals and so much love was happening on the day! Meghan and Tom had been waiting for this day for a year and I know that they have been excited for the photographs. So I have huge pleasure to present few of them here for you!
