Andrew and Nicola’s Edinburgh pre-wedding photos shot in and around the dark and windy streets of Scotland’s capital. Andrew and Nicola have chosen to marry at the beautiful The Vu wedding venue near Bathgate, West Lothian, and wanted to experience having professional photos taken before their wedding day arrived.
This photo gallery displays Andrew and Nicola during our pre-wedding photo shoot in Edinburgh’s city centre. Our photo shoot started at St. Andrew Square, then moved along to Princes Street, The Dome on George Street and finished on top of a very dark and windy Calton Hill.
St Andrew’s Square was good to photograph, as there was a special temporary exhibition of light on display, which was a wonderful backdrop for some of the photos at the start of our shoot.
This was technically one of the trickiest photo shoots I’ve ever done. On top of Calton Hill, it was so dark, with very little ambient light, that it was difficult to compose and focus each photo. Perseverance paid off, with some striking photos of the windswept couple with the out-of-focus city lights twinkling in the background. Use of the torch app on my mobile phone came in really useful tonight!
Since these photos were taken Andrew and Nicola were married at The Vu in Bathgate, West Lothian.
