I grew up in Australia and moved to Scotland with two suitcases and a backpack of camera gear. Scotland is where I feel most at home, and I believe that the natural landscapes here make it one of the most incredible parts of the world to get married in.
I am fascinated by the colours, sounds, textures, shades and light in Scotland. I am drawn to the water and the way it exists just as it is, simply flowing through each moment. The mountains mesmerise me, particularly as dusk approaches and the moonlight dances along the ridges.
I moved into wedding photography after a car accident years ago. In the days following this, it dawned on me how precious and short this life is. I had a lot of time to contemplate what had happened and what I wanted my life to look like. I craved a creative lifestyle, and wedding photography felt like the perfect way to combine my passions for landscapes, travel and human connection.
I care about creating images that show who you are and what your unique story is. I take the time to get to know you before the day so that on the day we already feel like friends hanging out together, and you can simply be yourself.
"We are overjoyed that we will always have these beautiful photographs to take us back to that day."
In our first conversation, Lina had described her photography style as subtle, unposed and unobtrusive, and this is exactly the experience we had with her on our wedding day. Lina’s own passion for the landscape is evident through her work, and it was lovely hearing how audibly excited she was about the light when we arrived at our wedding location! Thank you to Lina for braving ice, snow, freezing wind, mud, rain, precarious steep slopes and very confident sheep. We have wonderful memories of our elopement, and when these fade in the years to come we are overjoyed that we will always have these beautiful photographs to take us back to that day. - Alex & Jamie

Lina's work is unparalleled and has truly exceeded our expectations. Lina made us feel so comfortable, so much so that we barely noticed she was there. Lina has a natural ability to capture the precious fleeting moments. We feel such pride to share our photographic memories that we will continue to revisit and relive through.
