The most Fantastic photography company! We have been using Blue Sky for a good few years now, and couldn’t recommend them more! Alie & Niels are such warm, welcoming people who have always ensured we have the best experience in the studio, even with our little girl and dog! We always feel so relaxed! We just had our Xmas photos for the 3rd year in a row and wouldn’t go anywhere else, their attention to detail is for their Xmas displays are outstanding. The photos are amazing, and we already can’t wait to go back next year! Thanks again guys.

My wife had a significant birthday recently and requested that we have our photographs taken along with four of our close friends on the day of her birthday. Alie at Blue Sky made the whole process extremely easy. She really helped us to get into the swing of things in the studio and made sure we were relaxed and having fun (helped by a little champagne which she encouraged us to take along!). The photos we finally chose really captured our personalities and show just how much we enjoyed ourselves. The session just flew by and we all left for the birthday lunch in high spirits and with huge grins. Alie is a consummate professional and really fun to be with. I can’t recommend Blue Sky highly enough.

We recently had a family photo shoot with Alie which was a lovely experience. Alie was most welcoming, she made us feel very relaxed and put us at our ease, whilst taking our photos.The photographs were all first class and we had difficulty deciding what to choose.We would highly recommend Blue Sky Photography. Alie is an excellent photographer.
Alastair Ranken
I needed a few photos for work and a friend recommended Blue Sky Photography, she had used their services and was delighted with the results. I booked in with Sarah and instantly felt at ease with her direction and professionalism. We got the shot, actually a few and I was over the moon with them, so much so, I booked in again to get some more for my website. I highly recommend this company and whenever in the future I need another professional photo, I will not hesitate to call Sarah!Do yourself the biggest favour and stop googling Edinburgh photographers and book in with them.
Highly recommended and these guys will be our future family photographers too! Alie was super amazing and professional throughout. We had such a brilliant experience and our toddler was right at home and at ease. We got some amazing shots for sure as a result. Thanks so much!

It's difficult to put into words just how good Blue Sky are at what they do. Alie and Niels photographed our wedding and did an amazing job at every stage of the process - friends and family still talk about just how good they were over 2 years later.Everything about the planning and prep was carefully considered (we felt so supported) but also really fun. They acutely understand the stresses involved in arranging a wedding and actively reduced that for us because they were such a pleasure to work with! On the day itself, they went above and beyond, ensuring every shot we wanted was covered, making everyone feel super relaxed and comfortable during the posed pictures and even arranging the odd taxi when some planned transport fell through. They balanced incredible professionalism with energy and genuine enthusiasm and the final results were fantastic.They are super photographers and super people - you will not regret working with them, guaranteed!

After working with Blue Sky in a previous job I was sure they were the ideal team for my photography needs and I couldn't be more delighted. The lovely Alie shot the most beautiful family photos for us when we welcomed baby number two and then more recently I worked with Neils on a commercial shoot to photograph my home fragrance collection. From their amazing customer service to their welcoming studio every part of working with Blue Sky is a pleasure and I'm so thrilled with the collections of photographs they have provided.

We've had a few photo-shoots with Blue Sky Photography and it's one of the best moves we made for the business. They have injected life into our products which has made a huge difference to the look and style of the website. We're not local so we've shipped the majority of our products to them and they have done a remote shoot for us and followed our brief. We have been lucky enough to go up to Edinburgh for one shoot so far and it was absolutely fantastic. It was so nice to meet the team and help them in action. Can't recommend them enough! We will be back 🙂
Amalia Moore
If there was a sixth star, I would give it to Blue Sky, and then I'd try to give them an additional few. If you're looking for photographers who go the extra mile (the extra marathon?), you've found the dynamic duo of Alie and Niels at Blue Sky, so you can officially look no further. From the first email through until the last handwritten card from them, they went above and beyond, continuing to (somehow) exceed expectations. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

What a joy it was to work with Blue Sky. Alie and Niels' kindness and professionalism made our team feel relaxed and we had a lot of fun together while getting our professional headshots taken. Their studio is beautiful and Alie took such good care of us. The photos are brilliant and all correspondence before and after the shoot was fast and extremely efficient. Thank you so much for being so good at what you do.
Lydia Martin
Fantastic experience! We had our first family photos with our daughter. She had a blast and the whole experience was fun and easy. Selecting the photos we wanted was the hardest part, but Alie provided great insight and did not push us at all. Will be going back 100%. My daughter still points at the studio every time we walk by.
Chris Hicken
We had our family photos taken at Blue Sky Photography studio back in October 2022.The photographer Alie was amazing and very accommodating throughout the session. There was a room next to the studio where we can first sit down and relax a bit before/after/during the session. There are some toys for our 2 year old boy to keep him occupied, and we could use this room to get him changed and give him snacks etc.The studio is simple, but spacious, bright and airy. We were looking for simple family photos so it was perfect for us. Alie took the time and offered to take different combinations of photos; we never felt rushed or running out of time.We went back to the studio to review the photos a couple of weeks later. Alie had already selected best photos, which made us easy to pick and choose. Again Alie let us take our time to choose the photos we want to purchase, we never felt the pressure to purchase their products etc. We were very happy with how photos came out, and the whole process has been very professional yet very homely experience.It was a great family day and a great experience together as a family. I would definitely come back for more family photos in the future!
Mayuko O'Hare
Extremely professional and high quality headshots!
Louis Fearn
Unbelievable service provided throughout the process! Alie was brilliant and made us all feel comfortable in the studio, she was patient and ensured that we got the best possible photos. I couldn’t recommend Blue Sky and Alie enough!
Jamie Landa
Absolutely delighted with the photos. Ali made us feel so relaxed. We had no idea how it would pan out with a 3 year old but she had such a fun time. They will definitely be photos we will cherish forever. Amazing quality. Highly recommend 🙂
Nadine Sunderland
Cannot recommend this team more highly. We’re lucky to work with them annually: they’re talented, creative, inquisitive and deliver outstanding material for all channels. Professional, flexible, exacting and terrific fun too.
tania gillespie
Really helpful, made the session fun even got our granddaughter smiling and she hates having photos taken.
Trudy Nash
Amazing from start to finish, made our little feel at ease and capturing some great photos.So friendly and welcoming, would definitely recommend and will use again
Dionne Brown
10/10! Blue Sky came through for us after calling them in a panic (Due to drop out) on the day of our event, and Niel's vibrant energy made the photography experience enjoyable for our staff. The photos brilliantly captured the essence of our event, and we will be using Blue Sky for our future photography needs. A positive experience like this, with top-notch results and a photographer who brings out the best in attendees, truly makes a difference. Thank you for providing such fantastic service. It's clear that we've found a reliable team to capture our business events.
Ross Leiper
I don't know where to start! I had read a lot about regrets of a bride after the wedding and one of them was not investing properly in photographs - they are your only lasting reminder of your day. From the moment that I spoke with Alie, I knew she would capture my dream wedding in the exact way that I was imagining; she loved my themes and my ideas and worked with me on them. Alie was in constant contact from booking, up to the day, throughout the day and after. On the day, when we were introduced to Neils too and we knew instantly we were in safe, professional hands. Not only are the team amazing on their own, they are explosive when they are together. Everyone was constantly saying how amazing and funny they were! Alie kept my nerves calm throughout the wedding morning and I couldn't thank her more for that!And, I haven't even got to the photos! They are just incredible, when I look at them, I am reminded of the exact moments - Alie and Neils made taking each photo into a loving memory. The photo quality is outstanding. Neils got the wedding party looking dapper and instilled confidence in them to deliver some incredible shots!I can not recommend this lovely team highly enough.Thank you so much.
Alice Stephens
Great experience with Blue Sky from start to finish - quick and clear communication, fun family photoshoot with relaxed and friendly host who had a lovely manner with kids and dog. Have got some fantastic photos but didn't feel any pressure to buy lots, just whatever we really wanted. Would definitely recommend to others.
Mhairi Beattie
The sign of a good photographer is that you rebook when you realise you've been using the same images for 6 years! Alie is a brilliant headshot photographer - she has a knack of making you feel so relaxed and at home in the studio that you don't really notice she's working hard at creating the range of shots you need. For my purposes, that included both character and presenter images, and I'm delighted with what she produced. When someone makes me look this good, I'll definitely be back...
Fiona Stewart
We love Blue Sky Photography! We go yearly to get a family Christmas photo. We always feel so welcome & at ease. Alie, Niels and the whole team are amazing. It’s now a tradition that we can’t break. See you in December 🙂
Gemma Clearie
My wife and I had Sarah at Blue Sky take some photos of us for our home and to give to friends. We had never done anything like this before, and weren't sure what to expect. The complete experience was hugely enjoyable and the photos were superb. Sarah made the whole thing simple and straightforward, whilst still getting great shots from the various poses she suggested we adopt. We ended up having her print a number of photos, including a large format (32" x 32") one that we had framed. Everyone who has seen the photos is impressed by them, and we've recommended Blue Sky to friends and family. We've also asked Sarah to take some more shots in the future, when we go to our timeshare in Dunkeld.

We loved having our newborn photographed by Blue Sky at their studio in Morningside. The studio was great and Alie was so friendly. We were well looked after by the team. Alie was great with our newborn, very patient. The photos that she produced looked great. We are very happy with Blue Sky and really happy that we picked them. We will definitely be going back again in the future. Thank you Blue Sky.
Graham Johnstone
I purchased a family photo shoot for my Mum's 60th Birthday and couldn't be happier with the end product. Sarah's warm welcome was followed by a very professional and enjoyable afternoon. My family and I are thrilled with the photographs and would highly recommend Blue Sky Photography to anyone looking to capture special memories.
Adam Gordon
Alie was just fantastic throughout the whole process - she was incredibly accommodating which was very valuable given we had people coming from all over and I keep getting more and more feedback form the team about how at ease she made them feel and how happy they are with the photos. We would absolutely use Blue Sky again and have already made sure they are ready for when our team expands next!
Beth Whyatt
Amazing experience, very friendly and very covid safe. We went there to capture some photos before I left and I absolutely love the outcome. Thanks

We first met with Blue Sky in 2019 when we were planning our wedding. Within 5 minutes of meeting with Alie and Neils we were so excited for them to shoot our wedding! They have positive, infectious personalities that make them stand out from everyone else. They shot our engagement photoshoot and then 2 years later our Wedding day and most recently, a photoshoot of our newborn daughter!They were amazing on the lead up to and on our wedding day! Having two photographers on the day was fab as they really captured every moment, for both of us. They work so well together and bring great energy to your wedding day! Its pretty rare to get wedding photographers you want to hang out with on your wedding day as much as your friends and family!!Everytime we met with Alie and Neils they had a way of always making us feel so special. Almost as if we were their only clients. From sending us personalised hand written cards, to creating an idealic experience to view our photos and selecting our album. (We especially liked the personalised message on their blackboard outside).We couldn't have asked for a better service and will definitely be continuing to use Blue Sky in the future!Thank you again Alie & Neils.Carley & Craig x

We hosted an international advertising industry conference in Edinburgh in early September with roughly 100 attendees from all over Europe, and Blue Sky Photography was our official commercial photographer partner. Niels was an absolute star during the day and a half of the event, amazing energy, polite, discreet and proffessional. Great crowd control skills for large group photos during the conference, and especially during the evening part of the event at the Edinburgh Castle. But the best part came when the photos arrived - fantastic quality, amazing angles, very proffessional hi end look. As one of our members said on seeing the images - “even on photographs side you have just set the highest benchmark for all future conferences”. Totally deserved!Mercury Publicity Ltd / Connect Alliance

We cannot praise Blue Sky Photography enough, from communication at the enquiry stage, to the job itself and receiving the images following the shoot - we were extremely happy with the work carried out for our company.Thank you Niels and co!Isle of Barra Distillers Ltd

I found Blue Sky without recommendation, purely by Googling. Arriving at Blue Sky and seeing our family name on the blackboard by the entrance was a classy touch. The studio is immaculate and I immediately felt that I had made a quality choice. The shoot itself was great - generating so many shots that Sarah helped us narrow down to the ones that mattered most. I was slightly emotional when we arrived to see the short list - real quality photos, beautifully presented... It took me a while to get organised with frame choices, but again Sarah was very patient, generating mock-ups of what things would look like, which makes life much easier online, and prevents having to go back to the studio to choose. Eventually, I bought 5 frames in total. Worth every penny.
Alan Murray
We’ve had the pleasure of working with the brilliant Niels and Alie at Blue Sky Photography for our wedding, newborn shoots and more recently family pictures for a special birthday. They always make us feel very welcome, relaxed and at ease which makes the process enjoyable. Patience is always required when photographing us (!) and it’s there in abundance. The finished products are excellent and we’ve always been delighted with the photographs. I would highly recommend!
Ruth Watkins
We’ve used Bluesky for the last 2 years for their amazing Xmas shoot and they make it so easy to feel comfortable in front of the camera with incredible photos at the end of it! We’ll be back!! ❤️
Lauren Lewis
Would highly recommend! Alie was really friendly, and very professional. She talked me through the process of taking the photo really well, and the results looked amazing. She kept in constant communication with me regarding the final product, and I got my finished photos quickly and easily. All in all it was a great experience.
Sahil Maharaj
I can't recommend Blue Sky Photography enough. I got corporate headshots and Alie was so flexible with my requirements. The final photos were absolutely beautiful, I have had many compliments on them already. I will definitely be back.
A McBride
Wonderful photographers - if we could give them 10 stars we would! We absolutely loved their photography style for our wedding. & importantly we loved having them being part of our day, they made us feel at ease, were wonderful with our family and friends and know their photography stuff. We felt the BlueSkyLove!
Emma Collingwood
I have worked with Alie and Niels on and off for about 12 years and have huge respect and affection for them. They have a genuine and infectious enthusiasm for their trade. They are creative, fun-loving, highly skilled and modest all rolled into one. I confessed to them that I would rather have my teeth pulled than my photograph taken so when I asked them to create images of me for my website they knew they had their work cut out. The end result is testimony to their professionalism but also to their all-round loveliness. They are good people. You will be in gentle but creative hands with Blue Sky Photography.
Carolyn Grohmann
I would honestly give Blue Sky 100 stars if I could. Over 8 years ago we met Blue Sky and it was love at first meeting! We knew then they were the perfect people to photograph our wedding. Fast forward to now and when we needed a photographer for a family portrait to celebrate a 60th and there really was no other choice. We had the best time, there was so much laughter. It was lovely meeting up with Alie again. Not only a talented photographer but just a genuinely beautiful person. Now I need an excuse for another photoshoot!
Rebecca Collinge
I went to Blue Sky Photography because I needed some commercial head shots that were much more professional than just a selfie. I “hate having my photo taken” but Sarah made it a fun and relaxing experience, taking the time to understand what I needed and to find the right lighting, angles and background. The photos are excellent quality and I can thoroughly recommend the experience and the results.
Stephen Shaw
We had the best experience with Blue Sky, specifically with Sarah. My family went to her as a group who don't like having their photo taken and she was able to do the impossible and produce amazing family photos for us. We were welcomed and made to feel at ease. The session itself didn't last as long as we imagined and that was good. The review session was excelled and she helped us narrow down our choices. I would absolutely recommend Blue Sky to everyone and we will certainly be back for more family photos in future, next time with our dog!
Cheryl Stewart
We came to see Alie & Niels to get some photos taken of our wee girl when she was two weeks old. The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and we are delighted with them! The whole experience was fantastic - so calm and welcoming, and no pressure for baby to be awake or asleep and plenty of time to feed and relax around the studio. They perfectly captured the moment in time of her littleness, and we couldn't be more grateful. Would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking for some beautiful, timeless photos of their children!
Fiona Sutton
We found Blue Sky when searching for a photographer to take some headshots and lifestyle images for our small business. Niels and the team were friendly and helpful right from the start, and Niels made everyone feel so comfortable. We really enjoyed the shoot, and we now have some great new pictures of our team. Thank you Niels and the team for all of your creative input, your energy and your great service!!
Louise Griffiths
We cannot recommend Sarah at Blue Sky Photography enough. Sarah was absolutely excellent, very friendly, explained everything and gave us good advice.She’s dedicated and professional. Sarah was great with our two small boys.All the photos are absolutely fantastic.We will definitely be coming back to see Sarah at Blue Sky Photography again and recommending to our friends and family.Thank you!!

Blue Sky Photography recently held a photo shoot to produced headshots for our team. Really friendly, personal service and very pleased with the results we got. Will continue to use Blue Sky for any new members of our team.
Alisdair Young
This is my first time using Blue Sky Photography and I honestly couldn’t ask for better customer service. I really appreciated their in-depth briefing process to ensure they had a strong understanding of the style of photos I wanted. Niels was keen to ensure I was happy with the finished result. I am really happy with how the photos turned out and would definitely use Blue Sky again.
I recently hired Blue Sky for a commercial photoshoot of some new premises that opened in Edinburgh. Niels was a fantastic photographer whose enthusiasm was definitely unrivalled. The final photos look fantastic also!
Tom Petch
Blue Sky were amazing from start to finish when planning our wedding. They were so easy to get along with and when everything changed just days before the wedding (we were the last wedding pre covid) they were able to alter plans and adjust to suit our needs. The albums that Blue sky design are incredible, a real centre piece in the house.Since our wedding we have gone back to Blue Sky for a baby photoshoot which was great. A very relaxed feel to the morning with incredible photos produced at reasonable prices.We would highly recommend Blue Sky Photography for weddings and family photoshoots
Grant Baillie
Absolutely fantastic. First, having the pictures taken was a real pleasure - not a chore or 'to do list' item as anticipated. Alie made the experience fun, easy, and enjoyable. Everything about being here is great - it's welcoming, relaxing (who would have thought?) and peaceful in a beautiful studio with caring, kind professionals. The final result? Pictures I LOVE and provide the natural look I was after. I am extremely grateful. Top score! High fives! Cartwheels and handstands! And. . . not necessary to add but here we go. . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Lucy Turner

Have you ever had a couple crush? Well I do.
Alie and Niels are the most amazing couple and photographers.
They made us feel so at ease throughout the wedding and the images they captured will
warm my heart for years and years to come.
