Edinburgh, Scotland | Travel

Time for another installment of the KRP travelogue. Of which I haven’t contributed to since last October. I suppose this is what happens to a photographer’s blogs once you have a baby! On this post, I’ll be sharing photos from our time in Edinburgh, Scotland. We visited for a very brief two days in May of 2017, and those two days had a big impact on both of us!

Curtis and I have been dreaming about returning to Edinburgh since we boarded the train to leave it and head to London during our trip last spring. It was that amazing. We loved everything about it. We loved the architecture.. because I mean, just look at it, there is no where else like it! We loved that it wasn’t too big. If I’m being honest, London drove both of us nuts because it was just so incredibly crowded all the ding dang time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still obsessed with London, but you try riding the Tube at rush hour. It's enough to make a person feel a wee bit mad! We loved the friendliness of the Scottish people. And we loved the history and sense of adventure we felt every time we rounded a corner. From tea in Edinburgh Castle to walks through Dean Village, I loved every single second we spent in Edinburgh, and I cannot wait until we make it back one day!


Below are some images of St Giles Cathedral. It was stunning! I loved finding a quiet corner and just sitting to take it all in. It’s sort of surreal getting to sit inside a building that looks like it could be in a medieval movie.

We headed to Edinburgh Castle right when it opened in the morning. Pro-tip, head to the crown jewels first thing in the morning and you won’t have to feel super cramped while looking at them! We really enjoyed our time in the castle. It was like it’s own little town in there and the views were spectacular.


The photos above are from a little part of town called Dean Village. I saw it while researching Edinburgh and was like.. yup, we have to go there. It was even more wonderful and fairy tale-like in person.

We also walked through quite a few graveyards. Anyone else fascinated by them? It’s weird, but I love the history of it all. Definitely not going at night time though, ha! We also had breakfast in the Elephant House, the place where JK Rowling wrote a good portion of the first Harry Potter book. We’re both huge HP nerds, so naturally it was a must.

Boho Brunch Styled Shoot at Peach Creek Ranch

I don't photograph styled shoots all that often, but when I do, I enjoy the slower pace to get creative and photograph beautiful things made and designed by other talented wedding vendors. Last spring I photographed this gorgeous bridal brunch inspiration at Peach Creek Ranch. Heather from EpochCo + Events and Jaelynn from Urban Rubbish planned and styled everything you see below, and boy, those colors are splendid. Bohemian has always been one of my favorite styles, but I'm certainly not bold enough to rock it. I'm so thankful for vendors that have become friends that trust me to photograph their gorgeous designs! 

Also.. exciting! This shoot was featured on Brides of Houston, you can check it out here

Natalie + Devyn | College Station Couples Session

These two were so much fun to photograph! Natalie and Devyn are pretty much naturals in front of the camera, and I loved that they made each other laugh the entire time I photographed them. Those smiles are genuine, y'all! I love the moody romantic contrast of the final images from their session. The sun was just about to go down, and even though I usually prefer the brighter, happier sunshine that appears an hour or so before sunset, I can't help but love the feeling that light helped create in the last few images. 

Special thanks to Leanna Duran of Naturally Flawless for doing an amazing job on Natalie's makeup!


New Orleans on Film


In October, I took a quick trip with two of my good friends, Sydney and Ana to Georgia for a friend's wedding. On the way back, we made a stop in New Orleans for an evening on the town and a morning stroll through the French Quarter and a ride on the trolley to get the New Orleans feel. I hadn't ever been to NOLA before, and I have to say, I'm completely smitten with it's charming architecture and interesting history. I'm hoping to go back one of these days with Curtis and explore a bit more! Here are a few images from my time there.
