It's been a bumpy ride for the Euphoria girls - and a happy one too!  

2018 has seen us both get married, move houses several times, lose a beloved best friend and photograph some amazing weddings.

The very first Euphoria wedding was my own - on a snowy, icy winter's day.  (What happened to the girl who would only ever contemplate a warm, May wedding under a cherry blossom tree?)  My drive to my new home was spent on a snowy hill stuck behind a lorry that couldn't go any further.  I wouldn't change a thing.

Soon after, it was Norma's turn to marry.  She was sensible and chose a baking-hot summer day.  I was able to buy her the first pair of trendy shoes I think she's ever owned (sorry, Mum!) from Irregular Choice.

2018 also saw Norma and Sean working closely together.  Based in Broadford, they're often able to cover weddings in that area, working seamlessly together.  They photographed a post-wedding shoot at Dunscaith Castle and the results are straight out of a romance novel (sadly, not my words but the words of the couple's family!  I might just steal the phrase for use later on though!)

Norma and Sean also photographed John and Brittany on their holiday.  Brittany says the best travel advice she received was to have professional portraits taken when they're on holiday - and that's exactly what they did.  Their Neist Point couples' shoot is so full of fun.

Norma and Sean received a very last-minute email to photograph this proposal.  Dylan had been wanting to propose to his girlfriend, Sarah, for a very long time - but wanted to wait until the time was right.  He had carried the ring around with him and then, when the pair reached Scotland, he knew this was the place to ask Sarah to marry him.

Norma and Sean were available and photographed the couple at Brothers' Point - which is fast becoming one of our favourite locations!

Dominic and Kerin's wedding day started so well, with promising blue skies and vibrant seas.  About five minutes later, the heavens burst and the brave pair stood soaking wet while the equally brave registrar took the ceremony!

William and Angela's engagement shoot took place at the Fairy Pools.  At some points, the mountains were barely visible amid the mist!  People were fascinated by the couple posing in the gorgeously coloured grass!  I'm sure some Fairy Pools visitors have some pretty funny pictures of Norma and me setting up the shots!

When Danielle approached us about photographing her elopement to Richard, she asked for dark and moody photographs.  She got dark and moody weather as well, with driving rain and wind - which definitely did make for atmospheric photography!

Chad booked us at the last-minute to photograph his proposal with the beautiful Jenna.  Chad picked Brothers' Point as the place where he wanted to propose.  It made for an amazing backdrop.

Tyler and Anna picked the Quiraing for their elopement and a small crowd of strangers gathered to watch them make their vows.  Very romantic!

Allen and Melissa looked so at home at the Quiraing.  Before the ceremony, Allen surprised Melissa with a piper and a beautiful vintage car to transport them.

Our wonderful couple below eloped with their family all the way from Prince Edward Island to the Isle of Skye!  They also opted for a First Look, which was magical to shoot.

Trish's beautiful red hair made for such a lovely contrast with the moody blue tones of Loch Coruisk and the surrounding mountains.

Alex and Larissa eloped to the Fairy Glen on one of the wettest days ever!  We took refuge in the Uig Hotel, who kindly let us gatecrash and take some photographs in the beautiful surroundings.

Robert and Hillary eloped to the Quiraing on a very cold day!  The icy wind swirled around and even celebrant, Neil Lynch's dog, Tanni, didn't want to make an appearance!  Once again, we retreated to Flodigarry Hotel, who always make us so welcome, for some photographs indoors.

And, lastly, a bonus sequence from one of our favourite couples, Sean and Vanessa!  I've never caught this moment as well before and I doubt I will again!
