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

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 🙂

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.

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.

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.

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 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 🙂

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.
Megan McGlynn
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
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
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 was at a wedding photographed by Alie and Niels recently and they are amazing!They were seamless in their coverage of the day, capturing so many little moments as well as the main photos. They really brought everyone out of their shells, even people who were a little shy in front of the camera.Both Alie and Niels had an incredible "can-do" attitude and brought the best vibes. They were flexible when schedules changed, and made the most of some unexpected downtime too, getting in extra details shots and generally just being fab and helping out. They were so much fun, bringing the organisation and energy needed for group photos, but then melting into the background for more relaxed/candid photos.Cannot recommend these two fab people enough. Thank you both!!
Emma Lonsdale
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
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!
Lewis Smith
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
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.
Carla Berra
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.
Sarah W
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.
Bruce Deans
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
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
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
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
Debbie MacMillan
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
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
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 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
Would recommend Blue Sky to anyone! It was a relaxed photo shoot - they made it easy for the whole family but also were realistic as to how long two babies and a 4 year old would last! The resulting photos are gorgeous.
Mairi Simpson
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!!

Magnus B
Extremely professional and high quality headshots!
Louis Fearn
Fantastic experience from start to finish for our newborn shoot. Shoot itself was so relaxed and fun for mum, dad and baby. We were really put at ease and couldn't have been in better hands, professional but so friendly and welcoming. The follow up session to select our prints really helped us feel happy in our choices. Delighted with the shots, completely captured the personality of our wee guy in a natural way. Cannot recommend Blue Sky enough.
Rae Morton
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
A wonderful experience - a really professional service, and amazing photos. I couldn't be more happy!
Jean-LĂ©onard Rolla
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
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 was given a voucher for Blue sky photography as a gift so I could get a photo of all my family.We went and Alie made us very welcome and relaxed.In particular my Granddaughters who askedlots of questions which were answered.We got lots of photos taken ,with different family groups.All of which we saw in a further appointment were beautiful.It made it so much harder to choose a few and ended up getting more than I had first intended.I can't be happier with the pictures we choose and you get a link so you can get more copies of the photos you buy.I would definitely use Blue sky photography again.Thank you to Alie for making it a wonderful experience.
Pamela Wilson
Absolutely beautiful photos and a wonderful photographer to work with. Couldn't be more thrilled and happy!
Ian Molnar
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
We had the pleasure to work with Niels at our annual Christmas party. He arrived with great vibes, interacted with our employees and produced great memories from our evening. Would absolutely recommend him!!!
Ori Benjamin Richter
We absolutely LOVED our newborn photoshoot with Alie! She has done a fantastic job and it was such a lovely and relaxed experience! We couldn't be happier with the results!
Isabelle Papenbreer
Jonny Scott
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
brandon van houten
Really helpful, made the session fun even got our granddaughter smiling and she hates having photos taken.
Trudy Nash
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
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
Absolutely lovely experience. First off, location is ideal, free parking and accessible on the ground floor and the studio is gorgeous! The shoot was such a lovely time, Alie created a really chilled environment and created images that are so natural and don't feel posed. We got a great mix of newborn pictures and family ones too. After we were invited back to view the images and choose ones we liked. This was super relaxed and good fun looking through all the images. Absolutely delighted with the prints we purchased!
Beth Blair
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
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
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!
Kim MacKerron
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.
Letitia

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.
