Are you after some beautiful portraits of the two of you now that the engagement is official? Or, are you secretly planning to propose and want photographs to capture the moment they say ‘Yes!’? Or, perhaps you’re travelling to Edinburgh and while here, would love to have professional couple photos taken in and around our beautiful city?

Well, if you’re fun, adventurous and want your story to reflect your love, you’re in the right place!
I want to create meaningful photographs that will tell your unique story. I’m here to guide you, to help you to plan the perfect photoshoot, and to ensure you have an amazing time.

Planning to get engaged in Edinburgh?

Edinburgh is an amazing place for photography. No wonder people flock to here for special occasions and to plan those surprise proposals. The city is amongst the top romantic destinations in Europe, making it the perfect backdrop for couples’ photoshoots.

Edinburgh is unique in that there are so many locations where you could do your engagement photography.

You have the city centre with its beautiful gardens. You have the old town with characterful buildings on Royal Mile and moody closes to escape street crowds.
You have a beach nearby or just a 20 minute drive in the car can take you to nice secluded beaches as well.
You have the famous ‘Arthur Seat’ mountain if you would like your portraits to look like you have been in the Highlands.

Plus, a 15 minute drive away, you have the magnificent Pentland Hills for those who maybe would prefer a more active outdoors shoot.

So, you have plenty of options to choose from and I can always guide you if you are unsure.

Here is a little backstage clip I made while I was pretending to be a tourist taking photos in the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle. That’s me in the grey jacket. This is a very romantic idea for those who would like to have a proposal with a historic flavour.

My boyfriend (now fiancé) booked Armands to shoot our engagement and he was seriously so amazing! He captured our moments so perfectly and elegant! If you are planning special moments in Edinburgh, UK or the surrounding area you could not find a better photographer!

Travelling to Edinburgh for an engagement photography session?

Please do get in touch if you’re planning your engagement photo session to coincide with a romantic trip to Edinburgh. While I work with many local couples, I am also very happy to hear from couples who are based elsewhere around the county.

Perhaps you are planning to get engaged while visiting Edinburgh? Or, maybe you just have a love of our beautiful city and want to celebrate your recent engagement with pictures to remember your trip here?

International enquiries are also very welcome! I have photographed many newly-engaged couples from as far afield as Hong King, Japan and China, and love helping you document your engagement in a fun and creative way while you are in Edinburgh.

Want to do something daring and extravagant even? Amazing! I really enjoy helping your creative vision become a reality, whether you want to wear a full-glamour wedding dress or if you want to…(not sure what the other options could be Armands?).

If this is you, here are a few things you might need to consider and ask your photographer before booking.

– Do you need permission to be photographed in your dress at certain locations you planning?
– How you will move from location to location.
– Are you planning to do changes for him or her?
– Is your photographer good at posing couples for more fashion look sessions?
– Is it possible to do a session somewhere else in Scotland, like Highlands?

These are just a few considerations for you to think about. I’m here to help and advise. Contact me and ask any questions.
