Hello there, I’m Maureen. I work with a small number of couples every year to document their love stories in a heartfelt and artistic way.
After a decade I returned to live on the island I grew up on in the Outer Hebrides, just across from the Isle of Skye. I now call North Uist home and share my life with my husband Chris (who joins me at weddings when a second shooter is required), our newborn son Iggy and wee wild cat Peggy. Living here is slow paced and we relish in all it’s natural beauty. We live on the westside of the island and enjoy spectacular sunsets. When the moon is full we walk to the beach under it’s glow to listen to the waves. I feel constantly inspired from our daily life: growing veggies, barefoot nature walks, wild swimming, yoga, plant based cooking…
I love our wholesome rural life but my free-spirited nature also craves to roam and adventure. My summers are spent on the road travelling between weddings and the Scottish wilderness in our yellow micro-camper, and in the winter I like to escape to the deserts of Namibia or Australia to wild camp. Combining my love of traveling with my work is one of my favourite things about my job.
I believe in finding the beauty in the ordinary and everyday. Every wedding I attend, no matter the size or location, I feel is a chance to capture real, honest magic.
My photographic & filmmaking style are a blend of photojournalism and fine art. I love documenting all the organic, quiet little moments that show the realness of the occasion. I want to capture the true love between you both, that special spark. These honest moments, complimented with some stunning artistic portraits, help tell the story of your day.
I see weddings as a way to create art. I get excited about perfect spills of light & the texture of crumbling walls. Nature will always be my main inspiration with outdoor ceremonies in wild, remote locations making my heart sing. Whether your wedding is taking place on my home islands in the Outer Hebrides, Skye, the Scottish highlands or destinations abroad – if any of this gives you butterflies, I’d love to hear your plans.
