Brandon + Nicole 10.10.10 Edinburgh, Scotland

After two years of planning (on my part) I finally got to go with Nicole and Brandon to Edinburgh, Scotland and photograph their wedding! It was quite a fairytale wedding. They were married in Edinburgh Castle and had a pub crawl reception.
I have a feeling that these two will be life-long clients of mine, and that is fine by me. (Check out their engagement post here and here.) We had the BEST time seeing the town.

Here are just a few of my favorite shots from that amazing place in time. Honestly, there was not a bad shot in the whole city.

Nicole spent the night in my flat the night before the wedding. It was the first time I had to balance between getting ready and photographing the bride getting ready. It was fun to share her day with her right from the beginning.

I bought this hanger for Nicole for her birthday. It's her new last name. I got it from Lilafrances on Etsy. She does beautiful custom hangers. A great idea for bridal and baby showers!

Starting to get nervous:

They were married in St. Margaret's Chapel, which is the oldest and smallest chapel in Scotland. It only seats 22 guests, which is just how many she had. I loved shooting in there because I was literally standing ten feet away from the bride and groom.

And yes, the boys wore kilts!

I love the Scottish thistle and feathers:

This was the first time I had to tell the groom to watch how he sits.

After that amazing day we parted ways. Nicole and Brandon continued on to Greece for their honeymoon, and Doug and I headed to jump as many different countries as possible in the next 10 days. (Stay tuned for that post, I got some fantastic photographs!)
I can't thank Nicole and Brandon enough for giving me this experience!
