What's your booking process?

Once I receive your enquiry, I typically will reply within 48 hours (check your spam in case you haven’t seen a reply in your inbox!) and confirm if I’m available on your date if you have one set already. The next step will be to arrange a video call so we can get to know each other and see if we’re a good fit. If you decide to ahead with the booking, I will send you a contract to sign as well as payment details for the deposit and remaining balance payments. Once I receive the signed contract and the deposit, your booking will be secured and we can get planning!

How long will it take to receive our images?

For elopements and intimate weddings, I will normally send a small “sneak peek” gallery within the week after the wedding so you have some memories to share with family & friends straightaway. The full gallery can take up to 60 days or less, depending on how busy I am that month.

What happens if it rains?

In Scotland it is likely to rain on any given season and the weather is impossible to predict in advance. However, the good news is that the rain doesn’t ruin your elopement photos - in fact, most of the time it even enhances them, adding that dramatic mood and lighting that creates truly incredible cinematic images. So I always encourage my clients to embrace it and dance in the rain (both literally and metaphorically!). It’s always a good idea to have some warm dry clothes in the car to change into after we finish shooting as well.

Will you help us plan our elopement timeline/find suppliers?

Absolutely! I have a great deal of experience with elopements and know of a lot of incredible vendors that I can recommend to help you make your day as wonderful, fun and unique as you are!


We are absolutely over the moon with our elopement photos from Ieva. The moment we met, Ieva instantly made us feel like old friends and reassuring to be our natural selves. (As we struggle a little in front of the camera) Very friendly yet extremely professional, Ieva arrived prepared with what looked like a hundred different cameras on her and knew exactly the angles and shots that would create our breathing images. 10/10 recommended! ♥️♥️

We could not recommend Ieva more highly; she made our Scotland elopement dreams come true! Her soft, candid photography style fit our artistic vision for our wedding shoot perfectly. She went above and beyond for us on our special day and it could not have been more perfect. From meeting her in our first Zoom call to working with her in person, Ieva is the most lovely person and makes you feel comfortable right away. We had no experience in front of the camera, but she still managed to get such incredible poses with some gentle guidance and just letting us be ourselves! Thank you so so so so much for being our photographer Ieva; we know who we're calling when we head back for our vow renewals one day!

I don’t even know where to begin. They are absolutely so amazing and perfect and I’m in love with every single one. I don’t know how I’ll ever choose which to print! I knew when we decided to do a shoot on Skye that the landscape would be beautiful but I never could imagine myself in those photos. Seeing these is so wild because we were there and it still feels like a dream! Ieva definitely captured us so so perfectly and was so wonderful to work with. I will never get over these photos. This was the shoot of my dreams! Thank you thank you THANK YOU so much!!! ❤️❤️❤️

We are absolutely lost for words, the photos are beyond anything we could have wished for! You have completely captured our love and joy that day in a totally natural way, exactly what we were after. Eloping was everything Chris and I wanted and now having these stunning photos to share with our friends and family they can feel a part of the day. Forever Grateful for your fantastic skill, you should be so proud of yourself, this work is truly a credit to your creativity ❤️ Can't WAIT to gift these and have them all hanging around our house Forever.

Wendy & Chris

Words just can't do justice to having Ieva as our photographer. We were on the hunt for someone with a unique artistic style, someone natural yet professional, and Ieva was just the perfect find. She went the extra mile. Our Edinburgh wedding was captured beautifully and we'll hold onto these photos forever. Can't recommend her enough.
