Meet Eden and Thomas.

I love these guys!

When you turn up for an engagement shoot you hope for fun, laughter, romance…well this shoot was how it should be! The cover photo (up there) sums the day up for me. It’s one of my all time favourites now. It really portrays the fun and energy of the shoot!

Eden and Thomas get married late June 2021 and decided a pre-wedding shoot would be an ideal way to get to know me more, for me to get to know them and to just have fun! And that we did, all supervised under the watchful eye of Dio, their gorgeous wee dog! It’s only a couple weeks until they say I Do and I’m so excited to work again with them – I need more shots like this!

This is the beach at Tentsmuir Forest, on the coast of Fife, not too far from Dundee. Its a very twisty and turny drive once you are off the main roads (even my sat-nav gave up and I had to wing it from there, knowing I was going in roughly the right direction) but wow, its worth it! Gorgeous beaches and sand dunes and then a few minutes walk back into the dense forest – it was like two different worlds!

We were lucky and it was a glorious day, yet the beach was so empty – it was that big we hardly saw others walking by! Its definitely a place I’ll return to again with my boys!

We even managed an outfit change on the beach (it was that quiet) which is always a good idea on an engagement shoot – mix things up a bit for a different feel and look!

Congratulations Eden and Thomas on your upcoming wedding – I know its going to be epic!
