Mysterious love story

Imagine that you had a dream about tender love and passion. Would you pursue that dream against the odds, overcome many obstacles, chase happiness? Magda and Remi had some story to tell at engagement shoot – Aberfoyle, Scotland

I believe this is what we all want. But not all dare to do it. Sometimes it’s not an easy path, it takes a lot of courage, trust in another person. Put way out of your comfort zone. This is what Magda and Remi had to do to be together. And oh boy what a fairytale story they could tell.

They lost and found themselves in Glasgow, let’s call this place magical. Yeah, a magical place in Glasgow doesn’t sound very convincing but I’ve seen it and I know it does exist. Let’s establish that wasn’t a pub or football stadium, none of that kind of thing. At the time they met, both been in long term relationships and marriage. Society would call it well established, good couples when you don’t scratch the surface. 

Trust your heart

But they knew deep down there’s something missing. Something that can’t be defined, can’t be described. Until they meet and figured that out. It took some guts to move from another country and city to be together. More them that, they had to fight against prejudice and judgemental opinions from close ones who are a matter to them. Love don’t compromise and don’t take hostages. Does it need sacrifices? Sometimes hearts breaking and pride being hurt when you’re in a war zone. But at the end of the day, nothing else matters but love. Just be happy and trust your heart. For my dear friends, Magda and Remi 

Engagement shoot

We drove up to Aberfoyle, 30 odd miles from Glasgow. We went for a walk in the near forest. Magda and Remi love nature. Both of them are vegans try to live in harmony with nature. They run a vegan cosmetics business you should check out at ochvegan. Really good products.

The morning was rainy and cold, typical Scottish, late winter day. I always care about some backup jackets, blankets and umbrella in the trunk of my car. Last thing I would like to let my couple have hypothermia! Both were well prepared though. The morning was a bit grim but a few hours later the sun comes out. I was lucky to shoot a few photos in the sun at the end of the engagement shoot.

That’s the end and the beginning of this love story. They were that spark which started fire. I know I can’t stop now, I need to pursue my dream. To be a couples and wedding photographer. I am engaged, I am invested in this. I know what I want to do. What is my desire. Who I want to become.
