Couple Session | Isle of Skye | Jemma + Saf

Despite the Isle of Skye being one of my favourite places in the world, it’s not often I get the chance to make the trip north and explore this magical, misty island situated within Scotland’s Inner Hebrides.


Not only did I get the opportunity to visit for a weekend earlier this month, I also had the pleasure to photograph my dear friends and gorgeous couple, Jemma and Saf. They were both feeling pretty nervous about the shoot; both agreeing that ‘camera-shy’ was a description they’d thrown around more than once to describe themselves. I assured them that all they had to do was enjoy each other’s company! It was that simple.

As with all of Scotland, the weather on Skye provides all four seasons in one day. We battled wind, hail, rain and witnessed glorious sunshine — all in the space of an hour! The craziness and unpredictability of the weather ended up working in our favour though, as what followed were some of beautiful, intimate moments between Jemma and Saf that I felt so honoured to capture.
