The Kitcheners

We’re Dylan and Joanna Kitchener and for 10 years we’ve been documenting weddings and elopements in Scotland.

We’re passionate about travelling and meeting new people and it was this passion that led us to find one another in Australia over 10 years ago.

For many years we were both searching for that way to express ourselves creatively and after searching high and low we discovered that photographing people and their stories was what made our hearts race. We’re all about the raw emotion, the honest moments and capturing how it all really felt. For us that’s where it’s at!

Today we live in Edinburgh with our two sons, Bruno and Gustav, working around Scotland, Europe, and abroad.

Some of our recent accolades include being named Europe's Best Wedding Photographer in 2017 and placing in the Top 3 in 2018 and 2019, being included in Rangefinder Magazine’s Top 30 Wedding Photographers, and making it on the list in 2020 of Pro Photo magazine’s Top 50 British Wedding Photographers.

She was raised in the quiet Italian countryside, nurturing a love for family, food, and the feeling togetherness. After a degree in law, she transitioned to a more creative outlet in high fashion, working in accessories production and then as the marketing lead for an Italian shoe designer. Naturally drawn to objects of style, Bruschini had an early fascination with the dynamic art of editorial photography and weddings. 

Bruschini has been recognized as one of the top wedding photographers in the world by Harper’s Bazaar and Brides magazine (USA), and her work has appeared in Vogue (Latin America, Italia, and Australia), Harper’s Bazaar, Town and Country USA, Brides magazine (USA), and Tatler magazine, among others.
