Story

The couple in this photo was originally set to travel to the USA to elope in Yosemite (with myself tagging along for the adventure) however 2020 had different plans in store for all of us! When it became clear that traveling to America wasn’t going to be safe or possible, they came up with a plan B… Glencoe, Scotland!
Everything was all planned at the very last minute but the day couldn’t have been more perfect! The couple drove up to Scotland from England accompanied by their close family who joined them for their ceremony amongst the epic backdrop of the Scottish highlands.

After a relaxed morning getting ready in a cabin nestled in between the mountains, the couple walked literally a stone’s throw away to a beautiful, secluded spot down by a river to say their ‘I do’s. It wasn’t the adventure they had originally planned but it was still an adventure and most importantly, they didn’t let 2020 stop them from celebrating.

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.
