Euphoria Invited to Photograph Lord Godfrey & Lady Claire Macdonald at Pre-Ball Dinner Party
05 September 2014

This week has been Ball Season on the Isle of Skye with Lord Macdonald and Lady Claire Macdonald and guests staying at the welcoming Cuillin Hills Hotel, enjoying several evenings of dinner parties and dancing.

Euphoria had the opportunity to photograph at Cuillin Hills for several nights and we felt excited and honoured to be invited to photograph Lord and Lady Macdonald and their party. We took everyone outside for the usual formal shots and I began giving some posing directions for the ladies, explaining that these techniques were more flattering to the female form. Lady Claire exclaimed that she had never done this before! (I thought about all the times that she must have been photographed and wondered why no one had shared some simple tips on posing? Surely, we all want to look our very best in photographs?)

Earlier, I had checked whether that the group would be game for something a bit different. So, after the more formal shots, we livened things up a bit by giving some instructions which resulted in the last image above. The front row had entered into the spirit and became very lively indeed, showing what a fun-group they really were. I suppose I didn’t really need to ask if they were game - the ball, that evening, was from 10pm to 5am - pretty well guaranteeing they were ready for anything!

Lady Claire was everything that was gracious, sweet and lovely. We really appreciated her kindness and interest in us, while we were photographing her dinner party.
