Married in Miami, photographed in Edinburgh!
When Miami visits Edinburgh it can only mean one thing: adventure! A post-wedding session Edinburgh, Scotland was a dream come true for Thalia and Thomas! They had tied the knot near their home town in Florida a few weeks before they jetted off to Scotland for an unforgettable honeymoon.
Arriving in early May, Thalia and Thomas were greeted by the city’s timeless charm and awe-inspiring beauty. They couldn’t have chosen a more perfect destination for their post-wedding celebration. With its rich history, architectural wonders, and breath-taking views, Edinburgh provided an idyllic setting that exceeded their wildest dreams.
Should we have our post-wedding session?
I don’t think I even need to answer this question. It’s obvious! Even better, if you have your post-wedding session in Edinburgh! The city is colourful and vibrant, it will provide you with a wonderful experience of having four seasons in one day, so make sure you wear your layers! Its compact, most spectacular photography spots are within walking distance from each other. If you’d like to include more locations, we can jump in my car or hail a taxi!
Best locations for your post-wedding session in Edinburgh
Thalia and Thomas opted for a two hours digital package. They didn’t know the city well as it was their first time in the beautiful Edinburgh! I drafted a plan for our session and led them through the most unique and popular locations of the city centre. We started with a walk and used the car to reach more attractions within our timescale.
The old town of Edinburgh
We started near Edinburgh Castle and walked down the Royal Mile. St Giles Cathedral was looking proudly in the distance and became a fabulous backdrop for a set of photographs. The vintage red telephone box was fun and it took part in our shoot as well! We then proceeded onto one of the most colourful streets of the Scottish capital – Victoria street. The old town part of the shoot was finished with lots of natural photographs taken in the Grassmarket and near the Granny’s Steps.
Calton Hill and The Meadows
Is it even a session without climbing on one of the hills around Edinburgh? Calton Hill was beautifully lit by the setting sun. We took a quick walk around the hill taking photographs of the happy couple having fun and piggybacking on the grass with Princes Street, Arthur’s Seat and the sea in the backdrop. The Meadows with enchanting cherry blossoms and evening atmosphere was definitely the busiest of spots, but what a great choice for our grand finale.
“Hi, I love the pics! Thank you so much for everything (…) Again thank you so much, we are extremely happy with them” T&T
That night in Edinburgh was pure magic. Although it was a bit chilly for the Miami couple, they faced the 17-degree weather (over 60 degrees Fahrenheit!) with smiles and a great sense of humor. The incredible light that surrounded them was simply breathtaking. We hope that their walk and post-wedding session in Edinburgh will be an unforgettable memory for them.
