Story

This photo was taken at Scotland’s famous Glencoe region on a day that was mostly dark and overcast. I’d scouted the area the day prior and picked out 3-4 locations/backdrops for the portrait shoot so after the ceremony, we jumped in the car and this was the 1st location we drove to. It was the evening time so the sun was descending behind the mountains but at the same time, it was cloudy so the light was mostly diffused. Just as we arrived at the location we noticed the clouds parting and the sun slowly starts to reveal itself. A beautiful golden light blanketed the landscape for just a few minutes before the sun fully descended so we dropped everything we were doing and shot like crazy!

“If you could stand like this (groom) and you (bride) could stand like this and push your shoulders into the groom’s chest that would be awesome. Now if you could turn to your right and connect your foreheads guys. Lastly, can you gently touch the bride’s face for a little bit and just close your eyes while you’re doing this guys.”

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.
