Mareike & Gary's Trash the Dress Shoot - Cramond Beach, Edinburgh
It takes a very brave bride to opt for a trash the dress shoot on a Scottish beach in October, but Mareike did just that. Having married the lovely Gary in July this year at Glenfinnan, she seized the opportunity to wear her stunning dress once more.
It was bitterly cold when we arrived at Cramond Beach this morning but Mareike was determined to go ahead with the shoot.
And despite the cold it turned out to be a fantastic day for a trash the dress shoot – blue skies, a beautiful breeze (when you managed to ignore the wind chill!), a fantastic setting and a gorgeous couple.
Both Mareike and Gary were fantastic to photograph – committing entirely to the shoot and following our direction to the tee, even when our requests did sound a little odd! Mareike also had some great ideas for photographs and her beach run inspired a whole segment of spinning and twirling shots. A very good way to warm up!
After the shoot we all headed into the warmth of the Cramond Inn and never before had hot coffee tasted so good! Then it was back home to start editing the photographs.
And here are a few of our favourites…Our thanks go to the kind gentleman walking by who lent us his beautiful black lurcher!
