When I got an email from Maygan and Ethan I was super excited to plan their pre-wedding shoot. They are a very adventurous couple. They love to travel, hike and see as many beautiful places as they can together.
Maygan & Ethan – pre-wedding photo shoot Scotland – engagement session Scotland
They decided to visit Scotland during graduation vacation to celebrate their accomplishments together. After their visit in Edinburgh they decided to do the North Coast 500 and hike. They absolutely love to stay outdoors.
During their engagement session they told me about how they met and about their plans to move to the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina from Boston in October and how excited they were about it. They met in high school when Maygan was 15 and Ethan was 16 and have been inseparable ever since.
Also, they absolutely fell in love with the Scottish capital!
See the photographs from their Edinburgh engagement session we created together below.
Dean Village pre-wedding photography session
The bridge crossing the Water of Leith, a small river flowing through Edinburgh, is one of the most atmospheric places for a photograph in Edinburgh. In my opinion it’s a fairy-tale little village that you cannot not fall in love with right away. Dean Village used to be a home to water mills that used energy from rivers and streams to generate electricity. Until this day, remains of them still can be seen here.
Located in the northwest part of Edinburgh and walkable distance from the city centre, beautiful little village is a place a lot of my clients choose for their wedding or engagement photo shoot in Scotland.
Cute and tiny houses with little windows surround the peaceful oasis. If you follow the Water of Leith you’ll also be able to see St Bernard’s Well, an iconic building designed by Scottish painter Alexander Nasmyth in 1789. It is shaped like a Greco-Roman temple with a statue of the goddess of good health, cleanliness and hygiene in Greek mythology, Hygiea. The waters of the well coming from the natural spring were once believed to possess medicinal healing properties. Also including a cure for aches and pains to blindness.
