Diversity Statement

At Wildling Weddings, we celebrate diversity in all its forms. We believe that every love story is unique and beautiful, and we are committed to capturing the essence of our client’s individuality in every photograph we take.

As a wedding photography business, we understand the importance of creating a safe and inclusive environment for our clients. We are committed to embracing and celebrating diversity, regardless of our client’s backgrounds, and we strive to make every couple feel welcome and comfortable in front of our camera.

We believe in building strong relationships with our clients, and we take the time to listen to their needs and preferences. We are committed to providing a professional and personalized service that reflects the unique personalities and styles of our clients.

At Wildling Weddings, we are proud to be based in Scotland, a country with a rich cultural heritage and a diverse community. We are committed to reflecting this diversity in our work and to promoting inclusivity in the wedding industry. We recognize that every couple has their own unique story to tell, and we are honoured to be a part of capturing those memories for them.

What to Expect

  • Consultation prior to booking to make sure I'm a good fit for you and vice versa - we spend one of the most special days of your life together, and you allow me to capture your most intimate moments, so it needs to be a good fit. This is totally non-obligational, so don't feel bad if you decide to look elsewhere. I will talk about Scotland to anyone who will listen, so if nothing else, we'll have a great chat, and you'll walk away with some ideas. This is an amazing country, and I want you to have the most magical experience in it - whether that's with me as your photographer or not, I'm just happy to have met you and helped. You can book a quick chat here:
  • Next comes your custom booking proposal. After we've had a chance to talk about what exactly you're looking for, I'll put together a booking proposal where you can select exactly what you want (no pressure of doing it while on a sales call!), sign your contract, and put down your deposit to confirm your date. You'll then have access to your private customer portal. This is where you'll access all of the contracts, questionnaires, dates, prints, credits, and galleries. It's all in one easy place, so you don't have to go sorting through your email!
  • Depending on the package you've chosen, you'll receive a variety of different questionnaires and consultation calls. These are all totally optional but highly recommended so I can make the Scotland wedding that you've been dreaming of a reality! I really want to get to know you before your wedding so it feels like I'm an old friend attending this special moment. Because of this, I encourage frequent calls (let's catch up over a coffee or whisky - or whisky in your coffee - I don't judge), the sharing of your Pinterest board for ideas, and even a Whatsapp group so you can drop me a message with questions or ideas.
  • Along comes your wedding day! I shoot only one wedding each day, so I never have to rush off to make another ceremony time. I'll capture thousands (I truly get an arm and leg workout on these days from the squatting and lifting!) of photos from getting ready and first looks all the way through to the ceremony, cake cutting, and final dance. I'll work with you to create a custom timeline so we can capture the most important moments and capture photos that you'll want to have on your wall for years to come. I'll capture a mix of candid, documentary-style photos and portraits that will all be available in your online gallery featuring hundreds of professionally edited photos.
  • The cake is finished, the whisky drank, and it's now a few weeks later, and hooray - your wedding gallery is ready! I've teased the photos on socials, so you're already super excited, but now you have access to hundreds of beautifully edited photos that you can download and share. If you ordered prints at the beginning, you'll now be able to choose which images you would like printed in your album or on your thank-you cards (which we can link to your online gallery so all wedding attendees can see and download images!)
  • Throughout this entire process, my goal is to help you ENJOY the journey and be RELAXED in front of the camera. I understand that it can be really tough to get up and say your vows in front of your friends and family, let alone showcase intimate moments for a complete stranger to capture. I'll work off of your vibe - if you're more comfortable with me blending into the background to capture candid moments, I can totally do that. But if you want me to tell Aunt Terry that she's had a bit too much and is ruining the shots, I'm happy to take one for the team. Whatever works best for you, I'm totally flexible. However, I will always direct you to the best lighting, let you know if you have something in your teeth, and be ready with a tissue in case anyone's mascara is running!

About Alysa

Hi there! My name is Alysa, and I'm thrilled to be considered as your Scotland wedding photographer and/or planner. I've worked as a couple and travel photographer around the world, but Scotland is easily one of my favourite places to photograph. When not capturing and planning magical moments, I run a Scotland travel blog, Voyaging Herbivore. Through this blog, I have worked both to promote and photograph amazing UK-based and international brands. Having photographed upwards of five Loch Ness tours from Edinburgh, I know a lot of random facts about what dwells in the deep, and I'm more than happy to share these exciting details. As a tour photographer, couples photographer, and Scotland blogger, I can help you plan a truly unique Scotland wedding or elopement, complete with photos that will have you falling in love all over again with your partner and Scotland.


"Where are your reviews, Alysa?" I hear you asking. I am new to Hitched, so I don't have any reviews on here yet. I'm hoping you'll be the first, but in the meantime, you can check out reviews from previous clients on my website:

Planned Elopement

My husband, John, and I decided on a planned elopement to Scotland once we were engaged. From there, we were lost as to how to proceed with arranging services overseas. Fortunately in our searching, I found Alysa’s website for Wildling Weddings. From our very first email inquiry, Alysa was easy to reach, a clear communicator, and seemed to inherently understand what it was we were wanting and needing. She was willing to have extra conversations, send helpful tips and information, and kept everything perfectly arranged where we didn’t have to worry about anything. If there’s any testament to how amazing she is, I encountered one of a bride’s worst fears on our wedding day- I lost my wedding ring! Alysa could have simply conveyed her sympathy and wrapped up her work but instead looked through her photos of us, pinpointed the last time she saw the ring, and then WENT AND FOUND IT in the middle of Edinburgh (which in my mind was a needle in a haystack). To add to her wonder, I had first look photos in my inbox the very next morning! In my opinion we were given an angel as well as a wonderful photographer. I cannot tell you enough how grateful we were for her and how lovely our photos are. There is no better choice in Scotland!!

Wedding 2023

We hired aylsa for our wedding . Aylsa was great. She introduced herself before starting the photography. She took photos from every angle. We definitely got value for money and we would recommend her to family and friends.
