This engagement shoot has been in my mind for a while now, it’s just so gorgeous! I even convinced myself i had already featured it, that’s how much i love it hehe!! ;-)
A stunning couple, amazing sunlight, pure unadulterated love caught on camera…. wow.
Thanks so much to the amazing Fife based wedding photographer, Photos by Zoe, here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“I’m ever so touched my Alice’s email – its one of the loveliest things that anyone has ever said! And after reading what they have planned for their Wedding I can barely contain my excitement! There was an instant rapport between Alice, Sam & myself when we met in this cute little Eco Cafe (its called the Pillars of Hercules) nestled in the heart of the Falkland estate, a particularly beautiful part of Fife, in Scotland. Being the chilled out couple that they are, Alice and Sam where fantastically accommodating in allowing my youngest kid to come along to the shoot (as I couldn’t find any childcare for the day!) It turns out my little Missy M rather liked her new found role as my side kick, and even suggested her own poses to the onlooking Alice & Sam, – the source of much amusement for everyone!
We chatted, and talk about this that and the other, and enjoyed the sunshine and views together – it was a really lovely afternoon – and I am totally and utterly made up that Alice & Sam have booked me as their Wedding Photographer – I absolutely can’t wait till their big day xx”

Here is what bride to be Alice had to say….
“First things first, Sam and I are planning a simple wedding. A no-fuss, no pretence but definitely all singing and dancing affair. Or that was what I thought until I got swept up in the world of wedding planning!! We never thought that we would have a wedding photographer. My dad is pretty handy with a camera but then I guessed he’d probably like to be in a few shots too and after all this effort, surely it has to be worth documenting. So I set out on what it has to be said, was the most difficult wedding related search so far; for the perfect photographer.
We wanted something chilled; someone who would mix with the guests and hopefully have a nice time too. We also wanted someone fun and somebody who would be able to capture the amazing Cumbrian scenery that we (especially I) love so much. We finally narrowed it down to two. By coincidence, we were going up to Fife for work and after some very late notice and juggling of babysitters, we met up with Zoe just down the road from her house for a chat.
We didn’t really want an engagement shoot, Sam is nervous enough about the photographs on the day and I didn’t really want to add to his woes. But after meeting Zoe (and her gorgeous little girl) in a lovely little cafe in the middle of an estate woodland (being a Ranger, Sam was loving this), Zoe suggested that she take a few shots so that we could get comfortable with her style.
We had gorgeous sunny weather and although it took us a while, we did relax and get into the swing of things. And what a result! We love Zoe’s pictures and she made us feel completely at ease. She was friendly and funny and completely understanding. Sneaky too…sometimes you just didn’t know she was snapping away. Sam even commented after the shoot that we’d have to find another photographer, because we should definitely invite Zoe to the wedding as a guest!
Zoe has been amazing so far and I know that she, like us, is super excited for the real thing next June (2012). We’re getting married in a cafe on top of a fell, in the middle of nowhere, that overlooks Scotland, the Lake District and the Eden Valley below and (weather dependent) the views are going to be precious. We want everything about our wedding to be colourful, home-made, locally sourced and relaxed. I really should get the sewing machine out and get going!! There is no theme, there won’t be a sit down dinner, they will be pizza, crepes, a ceilidh and elderflower champagne. We can’t wait.”
Thanks so much to Alice and Sam :-) i cannot wait to see your wedding!!!! xoxo Lou
