Hello! We’re Oli and Steph

Scotland elopement photographers GUIDING you to the intimate elopement you deserve

Isle of Skye, Glencoe, Outer Hebrides. Wherever you want to go.

Why elope in Scotland?

Here’s to you. The soulmates. The thrill-seekers, risk-takers, adventurers. You want a wedding that reflects who you are; something authentic, unique and unforgettable.  

Ask yourselves – Who is your wedding day about? Who’s the day for? Who should the focus be on? If you answered ‘us’, you’re in the right place. Because it’s your day and your choice how you say ‘We do’. 


We’re Oli and Steph. We met while working in the Antarctic, we eloped on a Pacific island, now we live on the Isle of Skye with our rescue pups. We work as Scotland elopement photographers across the Scottish Highlands and Islands.  

Eloping changed everything for us. The realisation that we could get married in the outdoors, in a place special to us was a revelation. We believe that everyone should be able to have their own authentic elopement experience

We’re not like other wedding photographers. Our experiences living in the Antarctic and our decades of outdoor experience has equipped us with the skills to make sure that you have the most epic elopement possible.


  • You want an experience that reflects you both that you’ll never forget
  • You want to feel free to express your love for each other in your own relaxed way
  • You want a wedding that says ‘We do’ as well as ‘We can’ and ‘We did’

Imagine getting married on top of a mountain together and creating a memory you can still feel 20 years later – where you can close your eyes and inhale a breath, and still smell the fresh air, feel the wind in your hair and the earth under your feet. 

Life is precious. It’s made up of fleeting moments stitched together in time. Moments that matter.  You want to make the most of every second and document your day – your way. 

You want an intimate experience without expectations and demands from others. A meaningful wedding focused on you, your love and without compromise.

Don’t let numbers dictate your day. Choose an intimate number of guests or just focus on the two of you. Spend quality time together – all day.

Forget Gretna and Vegas.

Times have changed.

Eloping no longer means forbidden love or social shame. It’s less about secrecy and more about intimate celebration and adventure. Eloping means you can rewrite the rulesyour day, your way in any location you choose.

An elopement is commitment in its truest form. A day centred around you and your love.

You might want a small celebration with less than 20 guests or may prefer to just focus on the two of you.  After all, it’s your day. 

Adventure elopements aren’t for everyone. But they are for the brave. For couples like you who want to break free from tradition and push the boundaries. It’s not all about hiking up mountains in your wedding clothes (although it can be!). An adventure elopement is about you both being relaxed in a place that’s special for you, without the pressure of pleasing others but full of possibilities

How you met will always be important.

But how you spend the first day of your married life should be a story like no other.

We’ve travelled the globe,

exploring the natural world across all 7 continents.

Mountains, islands, and ice caps have all been our homes

Don’t just take our word for it,

We couldn’t recommend Oli and Steph more! Their expertise and advice was extremely helpful in guiding us through planning all the small details of our elopement. They were organized, easy-going and accommodating on the day and captured our wedding perfectly; our photos are absolutely stunning. Any couples looking to capture their adventure elopement should consider working with Oli and Steph!


We 100% made the best choice eloping with Oli and Steph. They answered all our questions from the get go, offering their best advice (they have plenty) and lots of effort to make sure we were happy! The guidance throughout and on the day was second to none, we felt heard and looked after. They picked amazing locations that we only could’ve wished for. The experience was wholly reflected in our gallery, that we still can’t get over. Perfectly captured moments, perfectly captured emotions – everything perfectly curated! We’ll always be grateful that Oli and Steph were part of our day, couldn’t have asked for better witnesses and photographers! Massive thank you for being such professionals.


HOLY SHIT! The photos are just incredible, it was so wonderful to relive our day through the photos you guys captured. They are everything we wanted and so much more. Thank you both so bloody much. We are so happy with them. We cannot wait to get back to Skye and come visit you. We meant it when we said we’ve made friends for life!


These guys are just the bees knees! I’ve never known wedding photos like these! Our family say the photos captured not only the beauty of what eloping is all about but also our raw emotions. When you elope it’s key that everyone sharing your day brings positive energy – these two have it in bucket loads. It’s like having two friends by your side – not just for photos, but sorting hair crisis, carrying extra bags, recce’ing locations in advance for you…They really do go above and beyond.


When we shared the photos some of our closest friends said they felt they had experienced the day with us and were moved to tears looking at them – that’s how amazingly the photos capture the adventure and emotions of our day. Oli and Steph fitted seamlessly into our tiny wedding party – they felt like guests rather than photographers. Neither of us are comfortable having photo’s taken, but we felt relaxed and at times forgot they were there!
