Hey! We are Katy & Jim: Scotland elopement photographers specialising in intimate weddings and elopements throughout Scotland, Europe and beyond (we love to travel for destination weddings!)
Storytelling is at the heart of what we do. We really care about documenting the full story of your day: all the big, important moments and all the small fleeting ones too. We’re passionate about capturing your personalities, your unique and special connection - and your love.
We take time to get to know each and every couple that we work with, so that we arrive at your day as friends (not 'just' the photographers). Our approach is laid-back, unobtrusive and fun. We'll blend into the background and document the moments as they unfold, offering a little light 'direction' to keep you looking your best, but otherwise capturing you at your most relaxed and natural…with no awkward posing!
Visually, we draw inspiration from the things that we love: the quiet beauty and composition of European cinema, the sponteneity of documentary street photography and the powerful natural shapes and forms that we find in the landscape. We are never happier than when we are capturing love stories set amidst the beauty of nature.
For the really adventurous couples, who are keen to involve a mountain hike in their wedding day, we are always down to help your craft an adventurous Scottish mountain elopement wedding day in Scotland. Jim is a qualified Mountain Leader: a professional qualification that means he is trained to guide you (and any guests) on hikes that are easy or more challenging to get to the most epic ceremony locations.
If you are lovers of life, light and the great outdoors, if you're the kind of people who like to do your own thing, rather than follow the crowd; if don’t want to go down the traditional wedding route, but are in the process of creating a day that’s unique and personal to you: whether the backdrop is a mountain, forest, beach, castle or vineyard; whether it's in Scotland, Europe or much further afield, we would love to hear more about your plans!

When we decided to get married outside in Scottish winter we didn't know what we might be letting ourselves in for. We loved the idea of eloping but didn't really know if we were just being crazy. When we spoke to Katy & Jim about our plans we w...    Read More
