Euphoria Photography - Isle of Skye Wedding Photography, in the Highlands and Islands and throughout Scotland

Norma Skinner - Skye Wedding Photographer And My Friend
10 April 2015

If it wasn't for Norma, there would be no Euphoria.  

The venture was Norma's idea in the first place.  Her courage to start something new compensates for my more cautious nature and, together, we formed the Euphoria brand, which is coming up for its sixth anniversary.  I was looking back at the weddings we have had the honour to photograph together, and my heart swelled with love and appreciation for the beautiful person I have worked with for those six years.


Over the years, our mother/daughter relationship has grown into a warm friendship.  She taught me industriousness, kindness to strangers and a fondness for Gordon Lightfoot.  She taught me generosity and flexibility - I remember her disrupting her day and driving me six miles to the nearest shop so I could buy a copy of a DVD released that day (Lewis Collins was in it, so it was essential I obtain it.)  She taught me resilience in the face of adversity.

Master photographer, Jerry Ghionis, said: "If you want to be a better photographer, be a better person."  Norma's skill as a photographer is at least partly due to her personality - she is sensitive to the individuality of every wedding and interprets the personality of the day into unique and beautiful photographs. 


Euphoria's latest bride described Norma as "a powerhouse" - and that is so true!  Norma's energy and enthusiasm is so contagious, she brings out the best in every situation.  I am so happy to work with such a talented photographer in her own right and a sweet, good person too.
