i'm iris, the person behind the lens

Hello! My name is Iris (pronounced EE-ris) and I am a photographer based in the Scottish Borders. I have been photographing weddings for five years now, and I absolutely love it! Although I enjoy all types of photography, I especially love photographing people. Each individual bears the image of God, which is what makes us so beautiful.

Here’s a little bit about me: I grew up in California, and have been living in Scotland for the last four years. I’m married to my wonderful husband, Dan, who I met while we were both studying in Edinburgh. Some of my favourite things in life are hanging out with friends, enjoying good food, and lying outside in the sun on a nice day.

If you like my work, I’d love to hear from you! I can’t wait to meet you and create something beautiful.

my approach

My style is very natural, photojournalistic, and relaxed. My approach is to tell your story as it unfolds. On your wedding day, I’m unobtrusive yet helpful. I’ll be there to fix your hair, hand you tissues, and quietly capture the beautiful moments as they arise. I’m happy to set aside time during the day to get some more formal photographs if you’d like, but what I love most are the candid shots of real moments filled with real emotions. And trust me, those are the photographs you’ll treasure most for years to come.
