Nick + Gillian | Engaged

  • Destination Glencoe Engagement Session | Scotland

Well I can barely contain my excitement today! We are about 48 hours out from returning from our trip to Scotland and I still have piles of laundry to do, but I couldn’t wait to share this! Nick and Gillian drove over FOUR HOURS to meet us at one of my favorite locations in Scotland. When we visit Scotland, we normally spend all of our time in the highlands because it’s beautiful there and that’s where our friend Jill’s family is from. Glencoe is unbelievable. The views are amazing and remind us a lot of Hawaii! Ever since I saw this location on our trip two years ago, I secretly hoped I would be able to shoot there one day!! Well, last week, my dreams came true!!

Nick and Gillian are adorable. They met through work a while  back and have been inseparable ever since. A lot of people have asked if  they were an American couple that traveled to Scotland for their shoot and the answer is no! They are Scottish and they will be having a beautiful Scottish wedding at a CASTLE next spring. I can’t believe we get to come back!! Ahhh!

When we arrived for their shoot, Nick’s right arm was in a sling and I thought to myself “Hm, this could be interesting!”. He immediately explained that he could take the sling off and hide the fact that we have injured. He had a pretty epic mountain biking accident and broke his collar bone eight weeks prior.  Thankfully, he was a good sport and you can’t even tell that he is injured!!

We loved getting to know these two. I had met Gillian through the Showit world and the United conference that I have spoken at the past several years. She’s a talented designer and I was so honored when she first emailed us to be her photographers. It honestly still feels like a dream!! We can’t wait to travel to Scotland again in 2020. Thank goodness they are getting married at a CASTLE because it is going to be hard to compete with the epic-ness from their engagement shoot!

Enjoy my favorites and get excited KJ ALL ACCESS members because coming soon, you’ll be able to watch me photograph this entire shoot!!! yay!

xoxo, Katelyn

    This shoot is so epic! And I can’t wait one day to travel for destination weddings. I just recently (almost 1 year ago) quit my 9-5 job to live my dream job of be a full time photographer. I am been a KJ All Access member for a few months now and am binge watching every single episode. Your style is so beautiful, so light, bright and still so colorful. I strive to have that same beauty in my images. Thank you for granting us all access to the KJ Vault. I feel like my editing has improved so much since I’ve starting watching all KJ All Access. I bought the Consistency Course 2.0 yesterday and can’t wait to grow even more! THANK YOU!
