Pre-Wedding Photography

Sessions are not restricted to Edinburgh, engagement photography beyond the city boundaries is cool: It’s all about capturing amazing photos; your day will be filled with stunning pictures to remember your fun day by.

Natural Engagement Photos

Beautiful natural looking engagement photos to support your wedding album are our aim. With my relaxed approach, your photographs will have a happy natural style. A unique approach will ensure the emotions come back to life when the pre wedding photographs are viewed. I will let the session unfurl naturally, this style means you get to enjoy your time together; free from restraints, in the midst of your chosen location.

Engagement Photography Shoots Edinburgh

It’s an unconditional privilege for any photographer to catch a couple’s engagement session. During the sitting, I will above all capture candid and relaxed pictures of you and your chosen location, and a collection of formal portraits and conventional couple shots (if required) so that you can create a wonderful blend of memories to support your wedding album. These days most couples are looking for something much more natural and creative. I will still ensure I have some great portraits of the bride and groom to be enjoying their time together before their wedding, my aim is to produce photographs that act as a photographic narrative of timeless moment’s pre wedding, with candid images capturing the emotion, excitement and fun of anticipating the big day.


Sourcing Edinburgh locations and considering where you could have your pre wedding photographs taken should be fun not a dilemma. You’ve just got engaged to your amazing partner and want to get an engagement picture taken so just come up with a fitting setting that suits you both, Ideas for your pre wedding; Edinburgh has umpteen photography opportunities, so for starters you could choose the location you were proposed to or any romantic spot you both enjoy. There are no hard and fast rules; sometimes a more radical location will complement the couple.

What to wear? Again, no harsh rules but try keeping it to 3 base colours between the both of you, no point in the two of you coming all mismatched. Just remember the engagement ring, the ring symbolises the event, it’s only fair we introduce it into the picture.
