YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER IN INVERNESS, THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS AND MORAY

Hello! I’m Karen, a friendly, trustworthy photographer based near Inverness

I conduct most of my work throughout the Scottish Highlands and Moray but I’m happy to travel further afield, throughout Scotland, to work with you!

I’m a wedding photographer, first and foremost. I also specialise in family photoshoots, landscape photography workshops, and commercial work including LVIA photography for wind farms and other developments.

My business isn’t just about photographs; it’s founded on exceptional service. I’m committed to providing you with a first-class client experience. I’ll make the whole process stress-free and enjoyable, regardless of which of my photography services you’re using.

MY SPECIALISMS


DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I’m hugely passionate about creating high quality natural images which will tell the story of your wedding, and providing a top quality service to all my couples. Most of my brides and grooms would describe themselves as slightly camera shy, but I ensure this doesn’t come across in the photographs! I will take the time to get to know you both before the wedding, helping you to feel more relaxed in front of the camera and look your absolute best.

“We just want to say thank you so, so much for the beautiful photos you captured of our wedding. They are amazing! We are so glad we picked you, it was meant to be!”

FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

I love capturing natural images that show your personalities and the connections between you. Kids grow up so fast and our beloved pets aren’t with us as long as we would like. It’s so important to find the time in our busy lives to capture these memories and cherish them in years to come.

“The pictures are fabulous!!! Thank you Karen!”

COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

I’ve undertaken a wide range of commercial photography projects over the years, working both with local businesses and well-known national charities. Whether it’s architectural photography, headshots of your staff, local landscapes or something else, I’ll be delighted to get involved. I’ll work closely with you to develop an understanding of your business so that I can capture the images you need for your website, brochure or social media pages.


WIND FARM & LVIA PHOTOGRAPHY

Before becoming a professional photographer, I worked as a project manager in the renewable energy industry for nearly a decade and gained a solid understanding of the requirements of developers and consultants. I have a sound grasp of the EIA process, including Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment. I’ve undertaken LVIA photography for several proposed wind farms, mobile phone masts and buildings, and am experienced in complying with industry guidance.


LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS

Join me in Scotland’s great outdoors to develop your landscape photography skills. Learn from tutorials, one-to-one tuition in the field and critique sessions which will be delivered in a positive way with the intention of inspiring you, as opposed to denting your confidence!

I run single day workshops in the Black Isle near Inverness, as well as in the Isle of Skye, Wester Ross and Torridon, and Assynt and Coigach. My workshops are suited to beginners and more experienced photographers alike.

“This wasn’t my first workshop with Karen so I knew I was in for a great day! Karen has spent a lot of time finding great viewpoints not generally frequented by other photographers.

Karen has a wealth of photographic knowledge and I was able to build upon her previous instruction and guidance. I came away with very pleasing images and a desire to further my skills.”
