Glen Coe Engagement
One thing that I’ve been dying to do for ages is take a couple up to Glen Coe to take advantage of the incredible scenery that I have on my doorstep but never actually visit. (Well, not never – but not often enough!)
Meet Rebecca + Jacob, the sweetest and most in love couple who are getting married down south this summer, but wanted to celebrate their engagement here in Scotland. Jacob popped the question on Calton Hill a little while ago so they wanted a bit of help recreating that moment. We started at Sunrise on Calton Hill which wasn’t quite as bad as it sounds – it was winter so the sun really wasn’t making an appearance until about 8:30am.
We then made the 3 hours trek up to Glen Coe for our engagement session. Our biggest hurdle on the day was the wind and cold. Rebecca was wearing a very summery dress for the weather and at some point, the temperature was well below zero with a strong wind and even in my winter jacket, I was feeling it. Shots were taken quickly and decisively before bundling everyone back into the car to warm up!
We ended the shoot on Lochan na h-Achlaise, a picturesque loch near Rannoch Moor. By the time we were heading home, the fog had disappeared in time to give us a phenomenal sunset with the prettiest pale pink sky to reflect off the water and snow. It was back to Edinburgh in time for dinner and we all commented that we felt as if we’d been visiting a different planet, the contrast between the highlands and city life is so great.
