Scottish Styled Shoot: From the newly opened UK branch

I was approached by a very talented Canadian photographer Jennifer Hodder as she was visiting Scotland and had found my work. She asked to partner together for a styled shoot, which I was delighted to do- as I recently opened our UK branch this year. ( while our DC branch is still bustling and rocking!).  I really enjoyed coming along side Jennifer's vision which she had accumulated on a Pintrest board and then tying in local vendors which I've come to know and love such as the drop dead gorgeous Rufflets Hotel and local food, florals, decor from Balgove Larder, locally made gin by Eden Mill and so many more local offerings from Scotland and St Andrews. We had incredible talent to work with see below for our cake, makeup and dress contributors. Thanks to everyone for contributing your talents and time and hope all of our readers enjoy...
