Stylized Wedding Shoot: Glen Coe, Scotland

As a destination wedding photographer, I enjoy creating and designing stylized photo shoots as a way to push my creative energy.   With an strong interest in the history and culture of Scotland, I organized this stylized shoot to take place in and around Glen Coe, which is a little village right at the start of the Highlands! 


Initially, the shoot started out very basic with only a model to play the role of the bride in a dress with a bouquet.  My plans quickly escalated when I reached out to other wedding vendors in Scotland within a Facebook Group that's dedicated to stylized photo shoots.  From there, I was able to connect with several Scottish vendors, venues, and models whose work I thought would go well with the overall vision I had in mind.





The landscape, flora, and fauna of this section of Scotland were also important to the photo shoot.  Part of the reason why Scotland is such a great location for weddings is because of its' richness and lush scenery - even in March!




In terms of weather, we were very lucky having just missed the infamous "Beast from the East" . We flew to Edinburgh from Bermuda - with our winter clothing, rain gear, and wellies in tow - rented an SUV that could tackle most snow storms and took off for Glen Coe. To my surprise, on the morning of the photo shoot it was bright and sunny.  By the afternoon, the clouds had rolled in and provided a softer light. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I look forward to planning my next stylized photo shoot!

Elopement: John & Brianna at Jobson's Cove

John and Brianna hopped off their cruise ship for a few hours while docked at King’s Wharf and got “hitched” at Jobson’s Cove a lovely Thursday afternoon! John contacted me two weeks before their wedding to see if I was available for an hour-long elopement session to which I responded, “of course”!  With a little help from my friends – Ms. Emma Simms and Pastor Dean – these two were able to be wed right on the water’s edge!

Wedding: John & Marie at The Reefs in Bermuda

Wedding: John & Marie at The Reefs in Bermuda

When you think of Bermuda, you may think of the natural colors found on the island: the blue and aqua ocean waters, the pink sand, and the green landscape.  Marie and John had beautiful sunny weather on their wedding at The Reefs in Southampton, Bermuda, which allowed for the island's colors to shine even more so! With the shimmering water behind the bride and groom, the two exchanged their vows, the rings, and sealed it with a kiss!

What made this wedding unique was the stunning display of floral decor and bouquets arranged by Flowers by GIMI!  The wedding day went smoothly; everything was carefully orchestrated by their wedding planner, Kathleen of Bermuda Event Solutions
