I feel a strong connection with elopements, as back in 2013, I decided I didn’t want the stress of a big wedding and eloped to the mountains. I know how important it is to have your day captured in a natural way that is unique to you. I’m here for you to help guide you through your day and to tell your story authentically & beautifully.
Choosing Emily as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our Iceland elopement. Emily’s relaxed personality perfectly aligned with our vibe. It was an incredibly easy choice once we saw her extraordinary work. The emotion she is able to capture felt like it would have been impossible for us to be seen in this way, but Emily made it so easy and we could not have been happier with the results.
We have received so many comments about how amazing her photos are, and it absolutely speaks to Emily as a photographer and artist.
You can feel the story in every photograph, and we instantly feel transported back. Her guidance through finding the locations allowed us to have a beautifully quiet ceremony, alongside finding some of the most stunning spots for us to be photographed in. She even had recommendations on where to stop for hot chocolate throughout the day.
Emily is incredibly kind, patient and compassionate.
At our last location, the weather took a turn for the worse with torrential downpour and wind, but Emily’s enthusiasm and creativity allowed us to enjoy the unpredictable Iceland weather, and the photos of us embracing the wind and rain are amongst our favourites from the day

If you've seen her work, you already know how good it is. The color grading, the moodiness, the magical lighting ... it's grounded and otherworldly all at once. Both we and all the guests and friends that have seen some of the shots from our ceremony were awestruck. What you may not know is what it's like to have Emily on your wedding/elopement team. For us, she was more than a photographer ... she was a local guide, selecting literally the most perfect spot on earth to hold the small ceremony that included 13 people, a place without spectators or tourists, and a mini-adventure for our guests; we would never have known it existed without her. She had a calming, pleasant and kind low-key presence that calmed our nerves and allowed us to be ourselves ... we didn't want overly posed pictures or wooden moments; we were after candid and intimate and a little wild, and above all a stress free wedding and she absolutely understood the assignment. She had an eye for the little moments and interactions that I might not even remember were it not for her being there to capture them. Thinking back on it, I'm not sure our vision for our ceremony would have come together at all, much less how magically it did, had it not been for Emily. A few things on her professionalism as well: She arranged the meeting spot and was on site well before we were. She was flexible with time and the "flow" of the day. She refused alcohol during the reception afterwords despite repeated offers (I would not at all have minded if she had a drink, but I respected her for declining). We had a preview link in our emails the next morning. Within 3 weeks, we had a slideshow and the final gallery was uploaded. Cannot recommend enough.

My husband and I made the decision to elope to Iceland for an intimate wedding -- the two of us, a photographer, videographer, and officiant (for the ceremony portion). I put so much time into carefully choosing the two humans to share our special day with. Eloping to Iceland and hiring Emily as our photographer (and our videographer Martin) were the best decisions we could have made. Our wedding was unequivocally the BEST, most magical, day of our lives. Emily's talents and her capacity to capture all of the emotions and everything in between makes her work worth sooo much more than a thousand words. On top of this, Emily is such a pure, kind, and soothing spirit -- really just a true joy to be around. We are so happy to have made these memories with her. The video that was included in our package was such a special addition. I had showed our friends we were with after receiving, and could never have expected the waterworks that were happening in the room.. seriously!! It created such a special moment outside of our wedding day that I'll cherish forever. To watch our friends reactions and experience how moving her work really is, how emotionally captivating it is to even those that weren't there to experience the day, was magic.
It's through Emily's talents that so much of our family who 'didn't get it' when we chose to elope, had that 'aha' moment hit them to their core. And, just like us, share our story, these photos, and the magic that exists in an Iceland elopement to pretty much anyone who'll listen! Emily, we love you so much and are eternally grateful for you!!! And for anyone who made it to the end of this review, just book her!

Having Emily as our photographer was one of the highlights of our big day. She was incredibly accommodating. She offered to drive us to each photo location, helped me zip my dress and even let me borrow her jacket when the wind picked up between photos. Emily is a down to earth person with skill that is out of this world. Our photos are GORGEOUS. Her moody, romantic style is exactly what we were looking for. Our friends and family are obsessed with our photos and we couldn't be happier. If you are considering Emily as your photographer, you will not be disappointed. Kristie

I only decided on the Wedding date once I found Emily.... I decided on our wedding date after stumbling upon Emily on instagram. To be honest, I was in a world of trying to choose which style I wanted for our day, and I had no ideas about where to have it. When I saw Emily's beautiful work, artistic, romantic, and just stunning – I knew that her photography was exactly what we needed to capture our connection and the day itself. Emily is not only a pro behind the camera but also a genuinely friendly and lovely person. I asked her to pick our location, and she nailed it. Thanks to her, our day was nothing short of perfect. I don't just like the pictures; I absolutely adore every single one of them. I can't recommend Emily enough to anyone thinking of eloping. You won't regret it!
Nikki & Rosselopement, Glencoe
Working with Emily was a dream. She found us the most stunning ceremony location, away from the crowds even during the high season on Skye. She took the time to really connect with us and our small group, seamlessly fitting into the day start to finish. While we we're initially worried about feeling awkward in front of the camera, Emily made it so comfortable and easy. We are blown away with the photos, they're even more than we could have ever imaged. We feel so lucky to have found her and are so excited to have stunning photos to cherish and share
Quinn & Christopher Isle of Skye elopement
We had been going back and forth over whether we should elope or not but when we came across Emily’s website it completely sealed the deal for us. Emily’s photos speak for themselves, Emily is a master of her craft and a true artist!
From start to finish the service and support we received from Emily was first class, from the lovely welcome pack all the way through to day. The advice and guidance that Emily provided gave us confidence and calmness in the lead up and on the day. We put ourselves in Emily’s hands on the day in terms of locations around Glencoe and we couldn’t be more happy with the end results.
It’s safe to say that through her talent, professionalism and expertise Emily (and our humanist Gary) helped give us the exact elopement we longed for, we will be forever grateful! Thank you Emily
James & NiamhGlencoe Elopement
We couldn't be happier with Emily's work for our elopement in Skye. Emily was so fun to work with, she made us feel at ease and even offered to drive us round Skye. We loved having her part of the day and the photos are truly incredible. Emily managed to capture all our emotions and Skye beautifully. We couldn't have asked for more.
Eimante & FinlayIsle of Skye elopement
I can’t entirely explain how perfectly Emily captured our day. Looking at the photos has the overwhelming feeling and vibe of the day itself. Our first chat was easy and comfortable and just clicked. Emily fitted so seamlessly into the day, capturing the most beautiful moments without us even realising. She is so kind and friendly, it was a genuine pleasure to have her at our celebration. The prints look absolutely beautiful and we are in love with our gallery. Her work speaks for itself, but I will recommend her endlessly for all the other elements she brings too. Emily is amazing!

Emily felt like a friend from the very first message. No question was too silly ir trouble for her. Even though she had probably heard it a thousand times before. When Emily turned up on our wedding day it really felt like we were meeting an old friend. She was such a trooper and drove us around the island in quite horrific weather for May. How she managed to capture the most stunning pictures, especially on The Quiraing when it was torrential rain and gale force winds and no one could see a thing in front of them, I have no idea. An absolute professional and superwoman. I had a little emotional wobble and Emily was right there to comfort me and told me whatever I needed she was there. She even offered to go back the next day to The Quiraing to get the photos we never got. Which was amazing of both her and Chris our videographer. We can't thank her enough for all she done before the day, on the day and also to get us a preview and sideshow so quickly too. Genuinely the best elopement photographer you could ask for.
Careen & DavidIsle of Skye, elopement
Emily captured our elopement on July on the Isle of Skye. She was the sweetest and made us feel so comfortable during our day. We clicked from the beginning and that made everything so smoothly. We had so much fun and the pictures turned out so beautiful. Every time I go through our album and the slide show I can relieve the moments, feel the emotions captured on every picture. I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you Emily for making our day extra special
Tai & Alex Isle of Skye elopement
Emily photographed our elopement ceremony on Inishmore in Nov. 2022. Beyond her dreamy, exquisite photography style, she is such an amazing person to work with. She kept such prompt communication with us before and after the ceremony and even helped us decide on a location and an officiant that fit our dream ceremony. The day of, she walked with us in the cold and rain for hours to capture our day and made us feel so comfortable even though we had never had professional photos taken before. I could not recommend Emily enough. She gave us the most beautiful memories of our elopement that we will cherish forever.
Jess & Schaefer Aran Islands, Elopement
Emily is one of the best photographers I could recommend to someone. Emily goes above and beyond what is expected of a wedding photographer. From the moment me and my partner booked her she welcomed us with open arms. We are fairly young and eloped without friends and family, she guided us through the marriage process recommending other vendors and humanist for our ceremony. Emily was the friend I needed her to be when I realised I was without friends and family on my wedding day and she stepped up for me! Everything she does for you she puts so much thought and care in to. I have not even touched one the photos yet. The photos were breath taking, i cried when I first saw them because she made me feel (and look) beautiful. I constantly get compliments that our pictures look like they are out of a fairy-tale. If you are on the fence about who to book Emily is your girl! You will NOT regret it!!!!
Maddison & Tom Glencoe, elopement
Emily captured our elopement on a beach close to our home, in the North-East of Scotland. We both can't express enough how absolutely lovely Emily is. Emily made us both feel at ease around having our photos taken, we were both a little nervous for this but immediately we felt relaxed. All our photos came out so dreamy and perfect. They are the perfect mixture of natural, moody and dramatic! Emily is incredibly talented and we couldn't recommend her enough. Thank you so for capturing our day so perfectly!
Gemma & Craig Scotland elopement
Emily was absolutely amazing! She helped us every step of the way from choosing a location for our photos, finding scenic opportunities during the shoot and even bringing us hand warmers to stay warm! She braved the cold Icelandic winds to give us the most amazing photos and was just incredibly kind and adventurous. I simply do not have the words to describe how much my husband and I cherish the memories she captured for us.
Amanda & Riley Iceland, elopement
Emily took our simple elopment and made it look like a fairy tale. She is extremely professional and trecked through mud, rain and wind. Her work is art and we are so glad she got to be a part of our special day
Inna & Adam Glencoe, elopement
Emily photographed our Elopement in a remote spot in north west Highlands and she captured the day perfectly. Her gentle, kind and positive presence was an absolute joy. I was nervous about having my photo taken but Emily put me completely at ease, embracing us for who we are. It felt like we'd known her for years!! I cannot recommend Emily enough. Thank you Emily, for capturing our special day with such sensitivity and insight, you're a star!
Frances & Christopher Loch Broom, elopement
We cannot recommend Emily highly enough!
We did an elopement shoot around Glencoe and Emily was an absolute joy to work with! She kept spirits high with her bubbly personality and the final images are beyond beautiful. Emily was super professional throughout and knew all the best spots to get to, the storms were against us but have allowed some of the most atmospheric photos!
If you’re looking for a fun, kind and all round incredibly talented photographer for a UK elopement, Emily is 100% your girl! We wish you all the best in the future and look forward to seeing your work on Instagram!
Tom and Jess Gencoe, scotland
Her photographer are incredible as if we were in a fairy tale. Our parents fell in love with those pictures and honestly so did we. None of the pictures felt stages or posed it was all so natural which we love. Thank you so much for capturing our love!! I recommend her through and through and wholeheartedly promise she will capture the best images you will love forever.
