Hopetoun house wedding – Patricia and Jacky

2017 April 15

As the wedding season started few weeks ago I would like to share with you one of the first – Hopetoun house wedding. The day that was filled with incredible amount of emotions. And because it was Asian wedding we knew it will happen a lot on that day! From the early morning preparations in close by Dakota hotel girls and boys ware getting ready. Then for very early ceremony at the Hopetoun house where all emotions hit everyone, especially Jacky who was incredible moved when he saw Patricia walking down the aisle with her dad. Following by the speeches straight after the ceremony where another amount of emotional moment happens when Jacky’s dad gave speech.  It was beautiful to watch their bond with family. Before moving for dinner to “Imperial Palace”, we had a chance to take few portraits of bride and groom around the land of Hopetoun house and inside as well. It was first time for us in here and we absolutely love the place for the so many options for great photographs! 

Wedding breakfast at the authentic Chines restaurant was like going to another country. There was games, tea ceremony and karaoke. Countless time of fun!  Not to forget about great food! 

Than in the evening we got back to Hopetoun House for the amazing first dance of Patricia and Jacky which was choreographed to the lovely “Stand by Me”. After the show everyone hit the dance floor and continued to have more fun of this wonderful day! 

Patricia and Jacky you have no idea how lovely it was to be part of your day! There was no minute that I didn’t want to document! We hope you having amazing time on your honeymoon right now but we just wanted to say THANK YOU! and wishing you as warm and happy life as your wedding day was!

Family photo shoot- Edinburgh

2017 April 12

Today I would love to show you a family photo shoot I did last month for this gorgeus family. They got gift voucher from their friends to use in our service (you can get them by contacting us), as the new family member arrived into the family. We had very lovely afternoon and I couldn’t be happier with the end results. 

When we’re not shooting weddings, we do portraits. We come to your house or it can be done outside and all we do have great fun with little directions if needed. 

Enjoy!

Roxburghe Hotel spring wedding with Kim and Chris

2017 April 2

No one would believe looking at this photos from beautiful  Roxburghe Hotel in Heiton if I would say that three days before this wedding, Scotland was covered by snow with minus temperatures! But it was really true!! How lucky Kim and Chris were! Over 20 degrees, everyone outside for all day and even some of them get burnt by the sun!  Definitely perfect start of the wedding season for us! 

Being first time at the Roxburghe Hotel and having that weather this place really stole my heart! Beautiful conservatory in which ceremony took place was perfect lit by the sun and the plants in it just made it looking cosy and whimsical. The place was decorated with flowers by talented friend of Kim – Kelly Vaughan-Clinkscale. Flowers looked fresh and very summery. Tim, one of our favourite celebrant made ceremony fun and unforgettable. I loved looking at the Kim and Chris’s family  how emotional they were about this day. Chris’s dad holding mum’s hand during the vows, Kim’s sister shade few tears when the couple put the rings on, then granny being so excited to finally welcome Kim in the family. And at the end everyone’s having super fun on the dance floor including Kim’s dad who I believe had the most of it! 
It was an honour to document and be part of this special day! Kim and Chris we wish you all your life to be as bright and loving as your wedding day!

Paris Engagement session | Ela + James

2017 March 26

It was one intense day in Paris engagement session last summer with Ela and James. We always say to our couples that we like adventures and we can take photos anywhere. We were visiting Ricky’s cousin last summer in Paris and we told Ela and James that we are gonna be there if they want to have a shoot in one of the most romantic place in the world. They got excited and within few days they got back to me that we gonna meet them there for shoot! I was so happy cuz it was one of the dreams to make romantic photo shoot in Paris! And ohh we had real couple in love!!! What else you could ask for!

We had very long day with a afternoon break. As you know Paris is very busy place especially in summer. And all this famous spots like Trocadero, Alexander the III bridge, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, and of course Eiffel Tower are full of tourists so to avoid that we met at 5.30am at Trocadero to take some sunrise photos. And it was sooo worth it! Amazing sky and almost no people!!! I loved specially when Ela put her red dress on. All those photos reminded me of Jack Vettriano The Singing Butler painting. 

When I talked to Ela about their shoot, she asked me if we can make it as a little fashion style shoot but still keeping it natural. I was very excited about this idea. You might not know that but my background is fashion and portrait photography! I have to mention something here, as Ela is photographer herself and James’s father is a wedding photographer too, so I was slightly under pressure here. But this did not scared me. Instead, motivated me to push my limits!

After some time at the Trocadero and being enjoying the sunrise we move on to the new spot – Alexander the III bridge. While we were driving my eyes was all around my head to look for something which will inspire me and just before we should turn to the Bridge, I saw beautiful light coming out of the something like looking like a park. I immediately said stop and we run to this park! Ela changed her outfit  for a long polka dress which perfectly matched the atmosphere. When I take photos, especially in famous places you want your photos to stand out- be different then others. I think those photos from the park are one of my favourite as include everything in unique way – amazing soft light, Eiffel tower from different angle and beautiful couple! What I loved about the James and Ela is that they worked so well together! I almost didn’t direct them at all! They look hot together and you can really feel connection between each other even at the end of the day where tiredness slightly hit us, there was still  a sparkle between them! Imagine their wedding! Woow can’t wait for it! 

We finally get to the Bridge and continue shooting. You can just imagine me – stunning place, amazing light and this couple …. I was in heaven! I saw inspiration everywhere! 

It came to a break time as the sun was reaching the highest point of the day and it was very hot. We decided we will meet around 5pm again to take some more photos in other places! We wanted to make sure we make the most of this great time in Paris! 

We met at Sacre Coeur Cathedral and walked between the streets with casual look. Looking at the wonderful drawing and painting at Montmartre and stooping by the interesting architectures. We really enjoyed that part as it was more relaxing and felt like being tourist shooting only one couple 😉 Then Ela and James made quick outfit change and we were ready for the last part of the evening shooting at Notre Dame and Louvre. The Louvre was quite challenging as there was so many tourists and other photographers with couples, so we have to wait for our turn and be quick with the photo but it was worth to wait! We end up with the lit up Eiffel tower at the background and we couldn’t be more happier with the overall results of the day! I was so excited! We not only spend great time shooting but we had a chance to get to know James and Ela more which turns out that they are genuinely amazing people that you want to hang out with. We so look forward to shoot their wedding in Poland! 

So if you’re up for Paris engagement session get in touch :)) 

Now it’s time to take journey with the photos hope you gonna like it and let us know which one are your favourite ones!

Pentland Hills engagement session | Claire + Kyle

2017 March 15

They roamed the hallways of their high school at occasionally the same time but it wasn’t until they went to the same University when their relationship blossomed.

 Few years after when Kyle had no doubt that Claire wouldn’t say no, he decided to propose her on her Birthday weekend at Kilchoan. Claire had expected that and it turns she was completely right. She even said  she had picked out some pretty socks that she wanted to wear for the occasion.
 
Kyle was nervous that weekend, cuz he was constantly thinking of when he was going to propose. In the end he popped the question while they were out for a walk over the rocks by the beach at Sanna Bay. The weather was even kind enough to stop raining for them for that walk! From that day Kyle knew he will have the kindest and cutest person on the world, who never fail to make him laugh for the rest of his life.
 
Claire said having Kyle beside her makes her life better. She’s loving his sweetness and support that he is giving her.
 
For their engagement session we went to Pentland Hills Regional Park, which we never been to from this side. We had moody weather which push us to be creative at the end of the session, and hide beside one of the benches with little roof.

Roslin Glen Save The Date | Lisa + Jordan

2017 March 9

Sometimes, you can be six years in the same school and start speaking with each other just in last year to see the sparkle.

Sharing the pizza on the first date and watching a film in cinema was innocent story until the second date when Jordan took Lisa for a walk and asked her to close her eyes. Lisa thought he will throw a snowball at her (as it was winter time), instead he kissed her and asked to be his girlfriend.  

Another six years passed while they strongly stayed together, despite both  studying in two different cities. Once Uni was over, they finally move together and Jordan decide it’s time for another step. He took Lisa to Oban and make her climb the hill to the viewpoint. Not to mention it was freezing. But then he warm up her heart by going down on one knee and ask her to marry him. 

For very long time Lisa and Jordan was making plans about their life together and used to say  ‘When we live together…’ ‘When we get married…’. And now It’s really exciting as its actually happening to them very soon. 

May is their month.

 

 

We met for their engagement session in Roslin Glen on a stunning autumn day…the light was gorgeous and we had SO much fun. Love them.
