Glen Etive Elopement by Scotland Destination Photographer TheDogwood Collective

We traveled to Scotland in May of this year, and it was the dreamiest and most beautiful place we have ever traveled to thus far. We still talk about selling everything and moving here one day. Anywhere we went had breathtaking scenery and even the rainy days were magical. If you are looking to have a destination wedding, I highly recommend Scotland. Your choices are limitless here, and everything is within driving distance.

For this shoot, we chose Glen Etive for the elopement location. Before we began we stopped at Glencoe Mountain Lodge for a quite bite to eat. They have the cutest places to stay over night and a chairlift that can take you to the actual ski resort. After we finished breakfast, we met up with our sweet coupe and took the one lane curvy road into Glen Etive. We followed it all the way until we reached this gorgeous Loch. We explored and admired its beauty and didn’t mind one bit when it started to sprinkle.

Before the rain started to pick up, Blythe went and got changed into her beautiful dress, and we hiked, ran around, explored hidden gems, and danced until the rain had us all soaked. Looking back, it is so funny to me how literally none of us cared that it was raining. We embraced the chaos and it made the day and experience that much more magical.


These are all so gorgeous and their personalities shine through! Love their simple elopement and oh my gosh your editing makes Scotland look like a dream!

This WHOLE elopement was so beautiful, but when I saw that photo (the second last one) of the landscape in black and white, and the couple in motion blur. That’s it. That was the winner for me. Amazing work!!!!

Absolutely love this super-romantic Glencoe couples session! Gorgeous misty mountain vibes.

So so pretty. These look straight our of a storybook! I can’t wait to visit Scotland!

Wow these are absolutely amazing! So magical, I love their attire as well! Such a dream wedding. Scotland is on my bucket list to travel to and capture any type of session!

Such a beautiful set! I love that you embraced the rain, it truly makes these photos extra special. You should definitely pack up and move there one day. 😉
