Charles and Kim were getting married in Edinburgh and took up my offer of a pre-wedding photo shoot at Corstorphine Hill. We arranged to meet up on Corstorphine Hill to the west of the city. This provided a great opportunity to get to know each other a bit better and shoot some gorgeous photos.
Corstorphine Hill was handy for this photo shoot as it’s close to Charles and Kim’s wedding venue, The Capital Hotel.
Charles and Kim were great fun to be around and were happy to allow me to guide them during our photo shoot. Most of the poses we shot worked really well. More importantly, we discovered which poses didn’t work. Kim is shorter than Charles and we found that Charles didn’t look comfortable if the shot involved bending or kneeling to bring his head level with Kim. This is great to find out during the pre-wedding shoot, as it means we can adapt the poses to ensure what we photograph on the wedding day looks natural and relaxed. We know what shots look great and work really well, meaning our time together on the wedding day will be really productive and enjoyable. And that’s exactly how it should be!
I’d like to share a few of my favourite photos from our pre-wedding photo shoot at Corstorphine Hill. Enjoy!
