SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS PROPOSAL

Ross & Chloe.

This photoshoot is a lot darker than my normal style but considering the 7am start in winter and dark location with sideways rain and wind it kinda fits the look.

This was one emotional morning and definitely the highlight of my photoshoots so far.

Ross and Chloe had been looking to have some couple photos taken and this coincided nicely with the fact I was looking to put together a styled shoot at the beginning of the year. Armed with a stunning dress by the award winning Flossy and Dossy, jewellery by Mirante and various other suppliers we where set for a trip to Glencoe. However due to weather our dates had to get moved about.

Change of plan…

Then Ross contacted me to let me know he planned to make this a photoshoot to remember and could I help him make his plan come together.  Set in one of Outlanders locations, The devils pulpit as its known to the locals, Ross and Chloe set off at 7am for their couples photoshoot. Unbeknown to Chloe, Ross had a little surprise to make it a day to remember.

We set off early morning to avoid tourists, and made our way down the deep ravine in heavy rain and wind. When deep in the ravine its like being in another world. The rain stopped and there was no wind. Chloe was here on the pretense they were having a couples photoshoot to get some nice photos of them both. She also loves all things Scottish and fairytale so this location was ideal.

Once we had taken some shots Ross chose that moment to get down on one knee and propose. Chloe didn’t realise he was serious at first but when the reality sunk in instead of getting that stunning ring on her finger, she ran straight into Ross’s arms crying tears of joy.

Being present for such a meaningful moment in Ross and Chloes life is something that I am grateful to be a part of! To continue the surprises Ross had also organized Chloes family to all come down from Dundee to surprise Chloe for dinner that evening to celebrate.

Wishing you guys all the luck and happiness on your adventures together.

Glencoe Engagement Photography // Jill & Liam

When Jill and Liam first got in touch to book me for their wedding, we got chatting about the fact they loved to explore the highlands. So were better than Glencoe for their pre wedding / engagement photoshoot.

It was an ideal location for Jill and Liam. These two spend so much time up here climbing munros in all sorts of conditions. From knee deep snow to glorious sunshine. The weather was kind to us on our visit which makes a change. I have been shooting sessions up here for over 8 years and I usually get battered by rain and wind. This was a lovely change.

It was important to Jill & Liam to capture as much as the scenery as possible as a month after their wedding they are jetting off to start a new adventure in Singapore. They are both so excited about but its clear they are going to miss their beloved scenery and the wilderness of the highlands. I had a great time on this shoot. These two where up for any idea I suggested. Plus I learnt Jill is also a massive Outlander fan so we had a good catch up about the joy that is Jamie Fraser and our love for the scottish scenery.

It was nice to see all the great renovations that have been done to the Kings Hotel . It is definitely worth popping in for a drink plus you will most likely get to witness the deer roaming around from here. Loved getting to spend time with you both. xxx

La Kaiser Jewellery Fairytale Photoshoot // Scotland.

This is the second time I have shot for the gorgeous Chicago based jewelry brand La Kaiser . Yet again I fell in love with all the collection! See our previous shoot here.

Everything about this brand appeals to me. From the fact they donate a percentage of profit to charity to the use of colors and metals. La Kaiser is a line of jewelry made up of simplistic pieces with a touch of contemporary and a pop of color. They primarily use opals, rainbow moonstones, diamonds, rose quartz and turquoise throughout their collections. Each item is beautiful on its own  with delicate details. But when you start stacking the rings together they really create an impact.  All the colors and tones sit well together so you can really mix it up and create a look of your own. For brides looking for something unusual and modern they also have a bridal range.

Featured in Vogue, Glamour and R29, La Kaiser is fast becoming the jewelry brand to go to if you are looking for something different and unusual.

Cindy the creator of La Kaiser describes her collections “Designing and manufacturing my jewelry locally between Chicago and Los Angeles. I donate a percentage of the profits to charity. I draw upon my colorful travels and European adventures for design inspiration.”

I had been approached by the brand as they liked images from A Scottish Fairytale Series and wanted images featuring their new collection. They gave me the freedom to do what I liked and the only stipulation was to try and bring all the pieces back in one piece ;). Actually a lot trickier than it sounds when you are knee deep in heather trying to balance multiple delicate tiny rings.

Many thanks to my lovely models Gabby and Nicola for being game for anything and braving the cold!

La Kaiser Photoshoot // Isle of Skye

Part 1 // Isle of Skye fairytale wedding photoshoot

Isle of Skye Fairytale wedding photoshoot – Exploring new places and collaborating with other creatives is my favorite thing to do but rarely have time these days. So when Chicago based jewelry company La Kaiser got in touch last year to say they where keen for me to shoot some of their pieces in Scottish landscapes I jumped at the chance. I have shot all over Scotland but for this shoot I  wanted a really dramatic and rugged landscape. My friend Vicky had not long returned from the Isle of Skye and raved about it so we packed up our kit and headed up there just in time to catch some snow capped mountains and get blown away by wind!

La Kaiser collections feature beautifully designed pieces with moonstone, diamonds and precious gems. All set in Rose gold, yellow gold and silver which can be stacked together to create your own look. Each piece is beautifully designed and delicate with intricate detail with a modern twist.

To take a look at the whole collection then visit La Kaiser. Be warned, you will want them all 😉

Glencoe Engagement Photography // Cassie & Scott

Cassie & Scott

 

I will never forget Cassies first email to me. I opened it on a Sunday morning and noticing the time it had been sent was the early hours. It was one of the nicest enquiry emails I have ever had. She compared my work to art and seemed so keen to have me shoot their wedding after trawling through loads of photographers site and falling in love with my photography. I remember thinking the email was so nice and seeing the time it was sent my first thought was its one of my mates winding me up!

Nope! Cassie was indeed real and just as lovely in person. Scott and Cassie live in the states and booked without even meeting me. They where coming over to see their wedding venue in the summer so I suggested we head up to Glencoe for a pre wedding shoot so we could all get to know each other. These two have been up to Glencoe many times when visiting before and where delighted. Although the windy roads are all evidence Cassie needs to convince her mum she is not driving when she come over for the wedding!

The wedding venue is out of this world, the couple actually glow when they are together and are up for any adventure. This wedding can not come soon enough! Roll on 2018! I can’t wait to see this lovely pair again.
