An experimental couple’s session near Loch Tay in the Scottish Highlands using blue hour and candles by a Scotland engagement photographer.
Blue Hour Couple’s Photos at Loch Tay
This was a fun session! We used the lovely, low-light blue hour to create moody portraits outdoors and followed them up by playing with candles and a flashlight inside. Of course, it helped that we had the antique feel of Stucktaymore House to lend vintage vibes.
This couple was so amazing to work with. They are a powerhouse duo who say that their “ultimate goal is to tell honest and meaningful stories through our visual work.” Knowing this, it shifted my focus onto finding that meaningful story that would show the honesty of the end of a day in Scotland.
It had been a busy day full of activity, so to slow things down and allow these two to really focus solely on each other, you could just feel the air shift. It’s so important to do this at the end of the day, to take a moment to really absorb the quiet, peacefulness that dusk brings. It can set the tone for the evening and even for the next day. Try it sometime!
Instead of hopping on the couch and turning on a millionth rerun of The Office or Grey’s (or for me, Outlander), turn everything off and take a moment to just connect with your partner. Talk about your days, listen intently, and let the rest of the world melt away. You’ll be pleasantly surprised what can come of this intentional time together.
If you are looking to get creative with a Scotland engagement photographer, let me know! I travel often and am happy to go all over the world to get weird + make art with couples. If you’re searching for a venue for your Scottish wedding, definitely check out the Stucktaymore House. The lodgings are beautiful and you have views of rolling hills and the loch to take in while exploring for your portraits!
