Story

A moment captured on a mountain top in the Transylvania region of Romania and probably one of the most unforgettable moments I’ve experienced as a wedding photographer.
It was approaching the end of the day and we’d already been shooting photos for a couple of hours with the couple but we all made the last minute decision to try one more location about 30 minutes further into the mountains.
Once we finally arrived was noticed light was disappearing fast so it was a literal race to the top of the mountain to get to a nice spot just before the sun vanished.
We ran up an incline for about 15 minutes and I don’t remember being more out of breath in my whole life!
When we reached the peak a blanket of fog rolled in as the sun was descending and it couldn’t have a more perfect moment.
We had about 10 minutes worth of incredible light and we made the most of every second.

“Ok guys if you could both face towards the sun that would be awesome and if you could stand really close together and put your arms around her and hold her tight that would be awesome too. Enjoy this beautiful moment for 2 minutes and I’m just going to run around and get a few snaps.”

Composition

Rule of ThirdsNatural FramesOff Center

Wide angle shots become more about the epicness of the landscape than about the connection between the couple. The closer you move in, the more intimacy between the couple you capture.

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.
