John Baikie Photography is an international award winning photography business based in the Highlands of Scotland.

I love weddings! Really! I often hear photographers complain about weddings, too much work, too much stress, and so on, but after 18 years in the industry I love weddings as much as ever, in fact maybe more. I have a soft, romantic side (yes really!) and I feel so lucky to be a part of these special occasions. I give my heart and soul on the day, and really will climb walls, and lie in puddles if I have to, to get the perfect image. Making people happy is my goal!

I am a people person. I get on with everyone at weddings and do my best to fit in, and be part of the day. I will be discreet when I have to be, and be part of things when it is necessary to get reactions from people. I am a born problem solver and when things go wrong, be sure I’ll be able to help relieve the stress of the day.

My weddings are 90% reportage 100% art. The bulk of the day is spent observing, and capturing moments in time, the things you don't see or won't remember until you see the images. This is the true art of photographing a wedding in my opinion.


There are many people out there who claim to be good photographers but we can back everything up with experience, awards, qualifications and many happy customers. Anyone can take a photograph, not everyone knows the right lighting, the right posing and can make the most basic location into a work of art. Experience and skill cannot be bought from a camera store. No fancy gimmicky photoshop effects and techniques, we get it right on camera and focus on capturing your special occasion to the highest standard.

We shoot weddings at some of the top wedding venues in the country, such as Achnagairn House, Aldourie Castle, Dunrobin Castle, Ness Castle Lodges, Bunchrew House Hotel, Loch Ness Country House Hotel, Ackergill Tower, Glenskirlie Castle, Meldrum House, Fyvie Castle, Ardoe House, Drumtochty Castle, Dalhousie Castle and many many more.

We have done wedding photography in Cyprus, Poland, France, Italy and Thailand, see our International page for more information on travel.

We cater for all weddings, no matter how big or how small. If you are getting married in a castle with 300 guests, or if it is just the two of you on a remote beach, we can put a package together for you.
