– ZOË –
Hello, I’m Zoë. Wedding and family photographer, mum to Nieve, Lyra and Aila, and wife to the love of my life, Sam. We live in a very beautiful village in the Campsie Fells in Scotland with our energetic pooch, Jess… life is good.
We love what we do!
I studied Interior and Environmental Design in Duncan of Jordanstone Art College in Dundee, during which I discovered my passion for photography and film. After a few years in hospitality I discovered my love for natural wedding photography, and launched full time as a wedding photographer. That was 2012, and I’ve been living the dream ever since.
I love being outdoors, with fresh air in your lungs and probably some sideways Scottish rain in your face! The best bit of course is coming home, throwing some logs on the fire, sticking on a record and getting all cozy with a glass of wine (or two).
I love shooting alongside my best friend Sam, who is not only a wonderful husband but a brilliant photographer too. He’s an incredibly calming person to photograph a wedding with, and he’s an expert at sneaking in those killer shots when nobody’s looking. We make a pretty awesome duo!

– SAM –
Hello, I’m Sam. Husband to the very talented Zoë, and dad to our wonderful and strong-minded daughters. We are lucky to live in the beautiful Scottish countryside, surrounded by hills and woodlands.
By (week)day, I am a theoretical physicist in a university research group, but for the last 5 years I have moonlighted as a photographer. I have always had a passion for photography and film – from making movies and stop-motion shorts as a kid, to experimenting in the darkroom at university, I have always enjoyed creating and consuming images.
I have learned so much from working with Zoë and other fantastic photographers, which together with my scientist’s understanding of light, colour, and optics has helped me to develop my own style. Zoë and I enjoy working together (a day out without the kids!), and our skills complement one another perfectly. I enjoy the opportunity to get to know you (and your guests), and feel honoured to share such an important day.
I’ve been told I’m a calming influence to have around, the healthy alternative to Dutch courage on what is an exciting but nerve-wracking day. I love capturing emotional images – those fleeting moments of complete connection between people, or those giveaway micro-expressions worth a thousand words.
About: Zoë & Sam
“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
This us on our wedding day at our home in October 2017. We had the most incredible day full of love, laughter and tears of joy (and quite a lot of mud and rain)! We treasure our beautiful images by the incredible Brooke from BlushbyB. Believe me when I say that you’ll never regret investing in photography you love. Each and every photograph is a truly treasured reminder of what was genuinely one of the best days of our lives.
