Amazing experience!

We could not have asked for a better experience than Raini & Dave offered us! Not only were they kind and welcoming, but they encouraged our thousands of questions about their process, where to stay, where to eat, and everything in between. Raini held our hand through selecting a place to elope, hassles we had with paperwork, and even joined us in celebrating at our post-wedding meal. It didn’t feel like strangers photographing our elopement, it felt like we had family or friends right there with us as we said our vows, traipsed through mud, and partied afterward. The photos they captured truly showed how we are as a couple, and looked beautiful - six months after our wedding and we still get compliments on images we posted months ago! I can’t recommend their services enough, and we would not hesitate to hire them again if we (hopefully) make it back to Scotland!

Amazing experience

Raini and her husband are a lovely professional couple. They really bent over backwards to make sure everything went smoothly for our day. They made us feel comfortable, offered snacks and drinks in the car, ferried us around and even witnessed our ceremony. Of course the preview pictures we have been sent are wonderful as well. The four hours we had together flew by and they even managed to squeeze in a third location to shoot at, fulfilling my childhood dreams of being married in the ruins of a castle!!!
