I’m Penny, your photographer for all things Skye – romance, adventure and awesome beauty. I will give you stunning portraits of your day, along with reassurance and advice along the way to make sure you have the perfect day – unique, memorable, romantic, and fun. I have been a wedding photographer for over 15 years and have lived and worked on the Isle of Skye for the last seven years. When you choose me, you are choosing local knowledge and someone who truly loves this place. I am a Craftsman with the Guild of Professional Photographers., so you know you are in safe and experienced hands with me.

I’m here to make your special day as epic as the views on Skye. If you’re up for a laugh, a bit of adventure, and a whole lot of love, you’re in the right place.

Weddings and Elopements

on the Isle of Skye

You’re looking for an Isle of Skye wedding and elopement photographer – you’re in the right place! Whether you are eloping quietly to have a romantic and exciting wedding on your own, or you are bringing some of your family and friends with you to celebrate your big day, I’d love to be your photographer! I offer specialised, shorter packages that will give you the most amazing photographs of your special day, at an affordable price. There’s no need to compromise on quality and you aren’t being dragged around the island for hours on end – I photograph the very best bits and then you can get on with enjoying your day!

I live on Skye and my local knowledge can help you to plan your day, from recommending locations for your ceremony and portraits, through to sourcing local suppliers. I can help you plan before the big day and I can point you in the right direction once you are here. My experience as a wedding photographer on the island for over a decade means that I have the recipe for the perfect balance between guiding you through your day to achieve beautiful images and leaving you alone to enjoy some time together and appreciate your wedding day.

A little bit about me

Hey there, I’m Penny, your expert in photographing love and life on the beautiful Isle of Skye. I’ve been a wedding photographer for more than 15 years, and have been based on Skye for home and work for the last 7. I’m originally from Hampshire, but have been swept off my feet by the wild beauty of this enchanting island. I packed up my life and my camera gear in March 2017 and made the leap to Skye – and am I glad I did! You see, it wasn’t just the stunning landscapes that stole my heart (although they definitely played a big part), but it was the whole vibe of island life. From the hustle and bustle of summer days to the serenity of winter, Skye has a way of wrapping you in its arms and making you instantly part of its big, cozy family. Romance is practically woven into the fabric of this place, which is why it’s so popular with couples planning a wedding, an elopement or a romantic getaway! The funny thing is, not long after I arrived, still finding my feet and my way around, love found me too! Skye worked its magic and I met the most incredible man – who I married last year. So, whether you’re planning a grand wedding or a secret elopement, a couples getaway or a family vacation, trust me to photograph your most important moments against the stunning backdrop of this magical island.
