We love doing photoshoots of couples in love, sometimes it’s new love and they are on a getaway in the highlands, sometimes it’s a engagement photo session to make a wedding announcement card from and other times it is a celebration of a wedding anniversary captured with the stunning backdrop of the Isle of Skye like our most recent couple.
Gregory and Victoria, who traveled all the way from the American midwest to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary, were looking for highland photographers who could capture their loving connection while they shared this new experience together. For their anniversary photoshoot they not only wanted a gorgeous location but something that symbolised the history of Scotland where Victoria’s family emigrated from long ago. We decided to take them to Castle Moil a coastal ruin on the eastern edge of the Isle of Skye.
The elements are ever changing in the highlands and so when we are planning a photoshoot we always have backup locations incase of inclement weather. While we were at the castle a we saw a weather front moving in so we decided to take a break and have a coffee, it didn’t take long for the skies to start clearing to the east so we headed a short distance to the village of Plockton and headed out on foot to another location that we love.
We used the Applecross Mountains and Loch Kishorn as a backdrop to our second set of photos. There was a sprinkling of snow on the mountains and the waters were a deep blue and the last of the days sunlight lit up the trees. We had a wonderful time and Greg and Victoria got to see some spots of the beaten track. Here’s to another amazing 5 years!!!
