Many of those who wish to tie the knot in the Highlands of Scotland do so from overseas, and organising and communicating with multiple suppliers in a different time zone can be stressful. With my all-inclusive elopement packages, I aim to take away much of that planning burden as I craft your perfect Scottish elopement with a selection of the finest local suppliers.

Portfolio Highlights

Matt provided us with a fantastic experience in Glencoe. We were both nervous, but from the start Matt was very comforting and calmed our nerves. The end results were amazing - Matt captured photos that we will forever cherish. Would 100% recommend!

We can't recommend Matt highly enough. We are both super nervous getting our photo taken but Matt went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. His communication was fantastic throughout and he put us at ease on the day. Thanks again, Matt, you were fantastic!

Matt was a pleasure to get to know in the run up to our wedding, and his results were just superb. We are thrilled with the photos he captured and we can't recommend more highly!

Let's team up

Eloping to Scotland means it will likely rain at some point, even during the summer, so my advice is to embrace it! Some of my favourite elopements have been on wet and windy days because the weather can make your photos even more dramatic. If the weather is particularly bad, we can take short breaks and find spots that are a little more sheltered.

What happens during adverse weather?


My average turnaround for your photos is eight weeks, but this can fluctuate depending on time of year. The number of photos can vary depending on a number of factors, but on average my couples receive around 50 photos per hour of coverage.

Quality is much more important to me than quantity or speed, as I work to ensure you receive the very best final product.

When do we receive our photos, and how many will we get?


A question that one day I hope should never need be asked - my business prioritises love and connection above all else. My aim is to make my business a welcoming environment for all those I am privileged to work with.

Are you an LGBTQIA+ friendly business?


All travel costs and accommodation charges within mainland Scotland are included within my prices. For anything a little further afield or abroad, please feel free to reach out to discuss your needs.

Do you charge extra for travel costs and accommodation?


Make an enquiry over at the contact page, and I will get back to you with availability and a copy of my brochure. If we're a good fit, the date can be secured with a 30% deposit and a signed contract.

How do we secure our date?


Of course! Being an elopement photographer is a much wider-ranging role than simply taking your photos. I can assist with supplier recommendations, accommodation, ceremony location ideas and timeline planning.

We're struggling with the rest of our planning, can you help?
