Story

This wedding day was very special for us because 2 years earlier we also captured this lovely couple’s surprise marriage proposal in the Scottish highlands!
We were so excited when they got back in touch with us again to ask us to document their wedding day! The couple was from the United States and wanted to return to the place they became engaged to share the experience this time with their families. It was a huge honour for us and it was one of the most emotional days we’ve ever photographed.

Standing outside of the room and shooting in through the door or from behind a wall can give a sense of ‘peaking in’ on the moment. I find it works really well for emotional moments such as when the bride or groom is writing or reading a letter from one another.

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.
