Story

We were in Morocco for this wedding and during the morning preparations we spotted the mosquito net hanging from the bed frame and we thought it would look fantastic to use for a delicate portrait of the bride. When I look at this photo I think about how important it is to build a relationship with your couples before the wedding day. To take this photo we had to build a level of trust with the bride so that she would feel comfortable and confident during the shoot. We Skyped with them a couple of times before the wedding day and we hung out with them in Morocco for a bit to get to know one another better and by the time the wedding day finally came around we already felt really comfortable with each other.

Directions

CalmSeriousLooking into the camera

“If you could sit her behind the net that would be awesome, and all you have to do is look right into the camera lens for a bit. Amazing! If you could take the net and move it from left to right a little bit that would be great too.”

The Kitcheners

Photographer Scotland Nikon D780 Nikkor 85mm f/1.8
We’re Dylan and Joanna and we’ve been photographing weddings and elopements since 2011. Lovers of the great outdoors, an adventure and meeting new people, it was our passion for all of these things that led us to find one another in Australia 11 years ago. We didn’t waste time, we got engaged after 3 months and tied the knot pretty soon after. It all happened pretty quickly but sometimes you just know when you know! For a long time we were both looking for a way to express ourselves creatively and after searching high and low we discovered that photographing people in love and their stories was what made our hearts race. We’re passionate about the real emotions, the honest moments and capturing how it all really felt. To us that’s what it’s all about! Today we live in Edinburgh, Scotland documenting elopements and weddings around the UK, Europe and further abroad.
