This was a really lovely shoot for us to do because we have become really good friends with Ewan and Claire over the past (almost) year.
We first came to know of Ewan through an online photographers forum, and when we discovered that we were from the same area and he was opening up a pet photography studio we arranged to meet up. We all get on great and regularly get together for coffee, a blether and the odd photo session too. Ewan has done lots of photos for us of our border collie, who sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago, and our two dachshunds. Flo has become a bit of a muse for him even though she's not the most well behaved. She definitely has her diva moments! She'll teach her little sister Winnie the modelling ropes though. Have a look at Ewan's website Mutley's Snaps for some serious oohing and aaahing over gorgeous animals.
Claire is an amazing web designer and she has given us lots of good advice on the minefield that is social media, website and brand building. She is super busy so if you need help with anything get in touch asap. Her beautiful website is Wildflowers and Pixels.
Claire and Ewan eloped with their two boxers a year ago, and they had some amazing wedding photos done by The Curries. They wanted to mark their first anniversary with another photo session and they chose Devilla Woods and Culross as two locations they'd like to use. We chose to do the photos in the evening in the hope of getting some lovely golden light. It was a pleasant day and still fairly mild in the evening so we all really enjoyed the walk.
We'd never been to either location before so it was really nice to shoot in some new places. Culross, made famous as an Outlander shooting location, is just so pretty!! We love the pops of colour, and quaint alleyways. We really enjoyed shooting there.
Here are some of our favourite images.
