Isle of Skye: behind the scenes

Remember the post about the Isle of Skye elopement? Well, it was a great adventure!

Scotland is such an amazing place. The landscape is completely different from what we’re used to. The light (or the lack of it), the tones, the nature, the mountains, the houses… everywhere we went kept us inspired. We looked like kids in a candy store, climbing, jumping, ending the days with soaked socks and muddy shoes.

As you can imagine, since we landed at Inverness airport till we flew back again, we never stoped taking photos.

This is a different post. This is the BTS of a friends trip. The actors are: Luciana & João (the newly weds), Miguel & André (the Lapela’s) and the great video man Joel da Palma.

Luciana & João: Isle of Skye - Scotland

A história que vos mostramos de seguida é uma aventura que marca o nosso primeiro trabalho fora do país.

O desafio foi proposto pelos nossos amigos Luciana e João. O plano deles passaria por casar num destino fora de Portugal, de forma bem diferente de qualquer outro casamento que já fotografámos. Desta vez seriam apenas eles os dois e nós (posteriormente juntar-se-ia também o Joel da Palma no filme) . Pensaram trocar votos e alianças num sítio icónico, rodeados apenas pela mais bela paisagem e silêncio que caracteriza a Ilha de Skye na Escócia.

Sem encenações. Estas imagens são reais, com um casal real, com sentimentos reais. Esta viagem será para sempre uma das experiências mais incríveis que teremos graças à fotografia. É entrar na vida de duas pessoas e permanecer com elas e com estas memórias.

The story we are about to tell you was an adventure that marked our first gig outside of the country.

We were put up to the challenge by our friends Luciana and João, whose plan was to marry in a destination outside of Portugal in a very different venue we had ever photographed. It would be only us and them, although posteriorly, Joel da Palma came on board as a videographer. They thought about exchanging vows and wedding rings in an iconic place, surrounded by the purest silence and the gorgeous landscapes of the Isle of Skye in Scotland.

So without any rehearsals or preparation, what you are about to see are images of a real couple on real emotions. And this trip will be one of the most incredible experiences that we had as wedding photographers. It was indeed to entrail ourselves into the memory of these two persons and to stay with them forever.
