“To me, eloping is a celebration of wild souls in love. Their timeless bond. Their hopes and fears. Standing face to face with their hearts open wide. Hair thrashing in the wind. Rain trickling on skin as vows are read. Nervous laughs. Happy tears. Mountains and birds as witnesses. A tender touch. A loving grasp. Undiscovered places and mighty memories.”
I’m David, an elopement photographer based on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
I started my photography business after many years of shooting landscapes and just before my twin girls, Eisa and Reina, were born.
I’m drawn to moments which are fragile and powerful and to those split second moments which say so much. I feature the landscape heavily in my work because I believe in the poetry of a place. Where things happen is just as significant as how they happen.
Photographs are not made in the camera, but on either side of it. Listening to your story is an integral part of my work and allows me tell it with more beauty and conviction. This is why you’re investing in so much more than someone who turns up and takes images. You’re investing in a guide who can show you some truly incredible places, a resource to help in your planning, and, hopefully, a new friend.
Whether you’re thinking of eloping at the top of a munro or by the side of a loch, I’d love to hear more about your plans and help you create a truly incredible experience.
I’ve also created a beautiful 24-page elopement planning guide to help you plan a day you’ll remember forever. It’s got lots of useful tips gathered from speaking to past couples and through planning my elopement! (Yes, I’m also eloping in 2022!). You can download for free here.
I hope we meet soon,
