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, situated just across from the Isle of Skye. I call North Uist home and share my life with my husband Chris (who joins me at some weddings), our son Iggy (who joined us Dec ’19) and 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 & enjoy stunning sunsets. When the moon’s full we walk to the beach under its glow & listen to the waves. I feel constantly inspired by our daily life: growing veg, nature walks & wild swimming.
I love our wholesome rural life but my free-spirited nature craves to roam and adventure. My summers are spent on the road in the Scottish wilderness for weddings in our yellow micro-camper. In the winter we escape to hotter climates like South Africa or Australia for hiking & wild camping. 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 style is 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. If any of this gives you butterflies, I’d love to hear your plans.
