It was a very cold and windy day, just three days before Christmas, when I met Faye and Iain for this Calton Hill photo shoot.
Faye and Iain had travelled to Scotland from their home in England, so braved the Baltic conditions for about an hour. A great effort considering how cold it was! By the end of our photography session, we were well and truly freezing!
Calton Hill can be swarming with tourists most days of the year, but on a day like this, we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
Calton Hill offers some of the best views of Edinburgh. Standing on the landmark National Monument Of Scotland allows you a 360-degree panoramic view. This place is also great for creating striking photos of Faye and Iain as they cuddled into each other or stood against the imposing pillars of the monument.
I love using the cityscape as a blurred backdrop to my photos, combining the blur with off-camera flash to really make Faye and Iain pop out of the images.
I’m looking forward to Faye and Iain’s wedding at Shieldhill Castle later this year. Sheildhill Castle is a beautiful Scottish Borders wedding venue which is perfect for a fairytale wedding and a great location for creating gorgeous photos of the newly-weds.
A massive thank you to Faye and Iain for allowing me to create these photos. You were brilliant and no matter what the weather is like at Shieldhill Castle, I know you’ll be the perfect couple for creating lots of beautiful photos!
It’s my pleasure to be able to share with you a few of my favourite photos from Faye and Iain’s Calton Hill photo shoot.
