We're Katy & Jim! Destination wedding & elopement photographers. We capture cinematic, emotive, artistic love stories. Covering the UK, France, Italy & The World!


Do you travel internationally for weddings and elopements?

Yes, absolutely! We are always super-excited to travel to capture loves stories all around the world. If you are planning a destination wedding or elopement, do get in touch!

Do you only photograph intimate weddings and elopements?

We specialise in capturing intimate weddings and elopements of up to around 50 guests. However, if you are planning something a little bigger than this and you feel a strong connection with our work, do feel free to get in touch.

Do you always photograph together as a team?

Yes! We believe that two creative minds are better than one, and we both bring something slightly different to capturing a wedding day. Working together as a husband & wife team also means that we can be in two places at once, which makes for fuller coverage of your day and a more complete story.

Why should we hire you?

For relaxed, natural, artistic & evocative images that capture the heart & soul of your day, taken by a husband & wife team who feel like your best friends & make the photography feel relaxed and fun...we're your guys!

Can you be our witnesses?

Yes, absolutely! As we photography as a husband-and-wife team, there will always be two of us. We would be honoured to act as your witnesses, if you are eloping alone!

How many photos will we receive?

For weddings, we deliver 500+ high resolution images via an online gallery platform. You can download all your images from the platform. You can also order prints and albums directly from your online gallery, via a linked-up print store.

Does it cost extra to have you travel internationally to photograph our wedding? Who books your travel?

All of our travel and accommodation costs are factored into our Destination Wedding & Elopement package. We know that this makes things simpler for couples trying to keep track of their budget. We also book our own flights and make our own travel arrangements. We know that couples already have enough on their 'to do' list without having to worry about this!


We had an incredible experience with Katy and Jim from the start. They provided lots of advice and tips on eloping to the Isle of Skye in Scotland and we ended up using lots of suppliers that they recommended. They also recommended our humanist celebrant, and he was perfect. On the day Katy and Jim made us so relaxed and comfortable which was a miracle as we both hate having our photos taken and generally end up looking awkward and unphotogenic. We received a preview of our photos within a week of our wedding and they were stunning. Our full set of photos was with us a couple of months later and they exceeded all our expectations. They look beautiful and natural and perfectly capture the mood of our day. We loved the mixture of individual, couple, group and nature photos. We picked our elopement location due to the views and natural surroundings and it was great to see this captured in our photos. The only issue now is working out which photos we want to put on the walls, too much choice! Thanks both of you!

From start to finish, The Caryls were amazing and exceeded all our expectations. Kind, calm and professional, Jim and Katy provided us with plenty of invaluable advice throughout the process on everything from our ceremony location to our timeline and fantastic suppliers. Working with such knowledgeable professionals (and marvellous human beings) made the journey towards our wedding day, as well as the big day itself, a stress free and magical experience. Having seen their previous work we already knew that Jim and Katy are very talented. We were still very impressed by the quality our own wedding album. The atmosphere, the emotions, the interactions – The Caryls really found a way to capture it all. Their attention to detail, their care and professionalism shine through every picture in the album. Thank you once again for all your efforts and this fantastic work. We would choose you again in a heartbeat!

We couldn’t have asked for better photographers for our wedding day - let alone for the trials and tribulations of covid postponements and cancellations ! From the get go Katy & Jim went above and beyond - always available for advice or any questions - we ended up cancelling our original plans with them of having a big wedding and decided on a small elopement instead - they were there every step of the way with wonderful ideas and their knowledge of Scotland and where to go / stay is second to none - on the day it was like we were just hanging out with our new friends - we had so much fun - and the photographs …. Wow.. the way they captured our day was just perfection. We couldn’t recommend them more !

Being camera shy we were a bit worried about spending a day in front of a camera, but The Caryls were amazing at making us feel at ease. It was so much fun to share this very special day with them and they went the extra mile to to make sure our wedding was perfect in every way. It made a huge difference to have photographers who not only take incredible photos but also know Scotland really well and can recommend trusted local suppliers. Their photos have captured the essence of our elopement in a stunning way - from the first moments in which we got ready to when we put our hair down after sunset. More importantly they were able to grasp who we are and our love, beyond any expectation. We now have photos which tell the story of our day and that will ensure we can remember it and share it for years to come. There is a reason why everyone says they are the best at what they do!

We cannot praise The Caryls enough, they made our day truly special. Our whole experience with Jim and Katy was wonderful. We had an initial meeting over Zoom and from that moment we knew they were the right people to have photograph our elopement. They were full of exciting and original ideas, and were extremely easy to chat to. They immediately put us at ease and gave us some great practical advice about eloping in Scotland. They were always easy to contact and responded very quickly to any questions or queries we had. Both Katy and Jim have a remarkable skill set and we felt completely comfortable with them capturing all the emotions of the day. The images they created are incredible and we will cherish these memories for years to come. We couldn't recommend them highly enough.
