What you'll do

Discover the Scottish Borders during a private photoshoot tour through ancient landscape, designed for outlanders and locals alike!

Begin your adventure with a train journey on the Borders Railway to a small countryside station, where we'll meet. Together we'll drive to our hand-picked location, designed exclusively by us for an awe-inspiring photoshoot.

'The Castle Ruin' is our shortest, but quite possibly sweetest session we offer in the Borders. It's an ideal introduction to our experience outside of the city (see Couple Photography in Edinburgh), perfect for those wanting a taste of our wilder Scottish turf.

We’ll drive across the Midlothian boundary, uncovering the heritage that can be found in this ancient land. With a majestic ruin set high across acres of peaceful pasture to explore, you’ll feel at ease with your loved one as you cast relaxed and romantic moments. Remote scenic roads await, winding through rolling countryside to unveil Scotland's wilder side, just a stone's throw from the capital. Enjoy the forgotten beauty of nature together, captured professionally to enjoy for a long time to come.

Please note! The Castle Ruin tour is just one of our exclusive experiences available in the Scottish Borders.

We provide a private gallery of 100+ edited digital photographs.

This experience was awesome! Both my spouse and I were nervous about how it would go, as neither of us had pictures taken before. They made us feel right at ease from the very beginning and helped us very kindly along the way. It wasn’t awkward and they genuinely cared about how we felt and made sure we were comfortable the whole time. I would recommend them to anybody. The location itself is also just amazing. So beautiful!

Julien and Rose will take you to the most incredible places in in the country. It was a joy shooting with them because I had so much fun. The photos you get are incredible and it was an unforgettable photoshoot.
