Photographed by The Kitcheners


These days we primarily photograph small weddings and elopements but every once and a while we enjoy photographing a big, traditional wedding and the challenges and rewards that come with it. 4 years ago we had the honor of photographing this amazing wedding day in the French countryside and it’s a day we still smile about today.

I remember being on my toes for 14 hours straight that day and arriving home to our Airbnb at 3 am in the morning completely annihilated physically and mentally but still on a total high because of all the amazing moments that we had captured that day!

It was a non-stop extravaganza of a day full of big characters, emotional moments, and some serious partying well into the morning!
The shot was taken at midnight during the first dance right before the real party kicked off!

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.
