Blue Sky Photography have a beautiful studio, emails were always replied to really quickly - from initial enquiry through to final touches for the photos. The team were all so helpful, friendly and warm. It was relaxed but professional, nothing was too much trouble and there was no hard sell. Very good with the three children.
We are delighted with our photos, this is the 4th photography studio we have visited over the years and it's now our favourite. We shall definitely return here for updated photos in the future.

I’ve known Alie and Niels for years and they captured our wedding beautifully and our family on their latest Christmas set. The photos were fabulous and the experience too. Alie is just lovely and she made us all feel so relaxed and well we just had the most amount of fun ever! All our friends and family keep commenting on how lovely the photo is on our Christmas cards this year - Thank you Blue Sky Photography!

A huge thanks to Niels at Blue Sky – he took beautiful pictures of me and my mum, making us both feel very relaxed, resulting in some amazing photographs, I couldn’t recommend Blue Sky highly enough.

One of my favourite days last year was the day I spent at Blue Sky Photography doing their beginners photography course. Neils and Alie were just lovely, full of passion for what they do and generous with sharing their skills and knowledge. It was a really enjoyable, super fun day which reignited my love for photography. I can't believe I waited so long to do it and will definitely be back. It turns out changing to manual isn't so scary after all! Thank you so much to you both.

Blue Sky Photography are fabulous. Niels and Ali are simply wonderful people and not only that they are magically skilled in their craft. This was our first experience of a photoshoot and was absolutely lovely. We had not long had our baby boy and wanted to capture it with high quality pictures.

From the welcome at the door, to the warm lovely studio, to the post production selection session, to the finished product hand delivered by Niels himself we could not have dreamt of better.

If you want to capture the connection you have with your loved ones or immortalise a special day these guys will make it happen because they understand how important these moments are and that makes it important to them too. Give them a call, you won't be disappointed.

We have recently had a family photo shoot with Sarah at Blue Sky Photography. When booking our session over the phone Sarah was very friendly, professional and answered any questions I had and she immediately emailed confirmation of my booking along with directions and what to expect from our photo shoot afterwards.

When we all arrived at the studio in Morningside, Sarah welcomed us in and showed us to the room where we would get our photos taken. There was myself, my husband and our 2 daughters (aged 3 and 1). Both our girls almost never pose for photos so we were quite apprehensive as to how well it would go and if we would get any decent photos of us all! Sarah was absolutely fantastic and made our girls feel at ease. She had toys to distract the girls and get their attention and made the session really enjoyable for us! It wasn’t as stressful as I thought it was going to be!

We only had to wait 4 days to return to the studio to view the photos Sarah had taken of us - and they were amazing!! Sarah did such a great job and the amount of lovely photos she had taken made our decision very tough! But the best thing is we have came away with the most beautiful prints of our family and we cannot be happier with our display of the photos at home. We will 100% be using Sarah again for any family photos we want to be taken in the future! Thanks again Sarah!
Kelly Ann Halliday
We recently used Blue Sky Photography to take images of our new product range and the photos are honestly out of this world! We ABSOLUTELY LOVE them. Niels is a genius with a camera. The Albert Einstein of the photography world!!!! Thank you so much!
Lara Wilson
Niels came to take pictures at a corporate event for us. He was great and just got on with taking pictures for us. It was a busy event so it was great not needing to direct Niels.I would definitely love to work with Niels again 🙂
Ciji Duncan
Wonderful photographers, really listened to and accommodated my needs, made all the process relaxed and fun. They also have this very beautiful studio in Morningside.

We went to Blue Sky photography for a Christmas shoot after so many wonderful recommendations on Edinburgh Gossip Girls. The service we received was second to none from booking to the shoot on the day. They were also amazing when we had to reschedule due to a covid scare! Sarah was amazing with our wee boy and the pictures turned out beautifully, I’m sure the family will love them.
Gaynor Kay
Thank you Alie and the team for capturing my kids in the beautiful Narnia backdrop. We’d highly recommend the winter woodland shoot. The photos we got are really special and perfect for Christmas. Alie even managed to work her magic and we got both kids (3 yrs and 9 mths) looking at the camera and smiling! 🙂
Vicky Anderson
We love Blue Sky. The style of photography is beautiful, modern and captures the real character of people. Our wedding, newborn pictures and gingerbread are all treasured. We're smitten with you guys, highly recommended.
Claire Downer
We had a fantastic experience with Blue Sky, would highly recommend them. We had our first family photo experience with Alie and she was wonderful. She managed to get lovely natural photos of our three year old and baby. Thank you for our photos, we love them!
Lisa Nicol
An excellent, highly professional photography service, staffed by friendly and fully experienced experts. I definitely recommend Blue Sky Photography.
Paul B
Highly recommend Blue Sky Photography - had a fun photo shoot this morning with Alie who made us feel so welcome and relaxed. What a great place, hidden away in Morningside! Will definitely use again.
Anne Burberry
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
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 Gray
Highly recommend the team at Blue Sky photography who recently did an amazing job when we attended for family and newborn photos. Alie and Sarah have created a warm, welcoming and safe environment. At the same time as getting some great images they made it relaxed and informal, particularly when attending with unpredictable small people! Thank you!
Rona Robertson
Just beautiful pictures and such lovely people! We had so much fun.
Stephie Phipps
I couldn’t recommend Blue Sky Photography more highly. Alie has a real gift for putting you at ease in front of the camera and capturing you at your most natural without you even noticing. Their studio is very welcoming and super clean. The physical prints are of the highest quality & really look fantastic. A superb experience from start to finish!
Kathy Gillies
A photo shoot with a one and three year old is something that fills most Mums with fear…there is no need to feel that if you’re going along to Blue Sky Photography. The studio is wonderful and spacious giving the children not only the room to express themselves but also the encouragement to do so. Sarah completely understood our chaos and worked with it. When we went back to see the photographs, I couldn’t believe what she had managed to capture.
We opted to buy our favourite prints already framed which was a great decision as we put them out in our home as soon as they arrived. Absolutely stunning quality and means they’re not locked away in a box or on a hard-drive somewhere.
Thank you for capturing such a beautiful and chaotic time in our families lives, Sarah 🥰
Sarah Morrison
Niels, Alie and Sarah produce some of the best family photographs I have seen. We first used Niels and Alie for our wedding a few years ago. Despite it being one of the wettest days of the year, they did an amazing job of our photographs and I still love looking at the prints we have on display in our house every day.
We then didn’t hesitate to contact them to take some newborn shots of our baby. Alie’s photographs of our new son blew us away. We have also recently experienced their express photoshoot at Mother’s Day. We are so pleased with the beautiful photographs that Sarah took.
As well as top quality photographs, they are so easy to work with as a team and they respond quickly to any contact. Their studio is a lovely environment for the shoots and a great place to relax and choose the best snaps later (which is always the hard bit with so many good photographs!).
Great photographs by great people!
Sarah Turner Mathieson
Absolutely gorgeous wedding photos taken by two of the nicest people! Thanks Alie and Niels Oir album is totally magical for someone who hates getting her photograph taken you made the experience so enjoyable and every single one of the picture I adore! Ashley and Dean xxx
Ashley Sharp
My 11 year old daughter was bought a photo shoot for her & her best friend. Sarah was amazing, very patient while they changed outfits a few times & made them feel really comfortable and confident. The girls had a brilliant time. The quality of the photos were excellent, we found it hard to choose! The file for your mobile is amazing, whilst we can’t print these we have all the photos to look at & share with our families. Brilliant x
Natalie Barker
Alie and Niels are both exceptional photographers and thoroughly nice people. They photographed our wedding in November and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. From the first Skype call we had with them until receiving our album a few weeks ago they have gone above and beyond the call of duty - giving helpful suggestions and advice throughout our wedding planning and support in the run up to the day itself (as well as coffee and the best brownies!) They are also incredibly thoughtful - we were so touched by the cards they sent us in the run up to the wedding - it really made us feel like they were as excited as we were about our wedding day! We really can't recommend Blue Sky highly enough!
Joanna Davidson
I’ve always loved Blue Sky’s natural and laid back style when it comes to family photo shoots. I’m not one for awkward poses! So it was always going to be them we used. Alie exceeded all of our expectations and the shoot was super relaxed and actually loads of fun! We didn’t think we would like the images with us in and would only like the ones of our baby girl...however when we went for the viewing we fell in love with one of the images of all 3 of us and ended up buying it in a large print! The image, along with all the others, is filled with love and is simply beautiful. Thank you Alie!!
Hollie Nicole
What a pleasure it was to work with Blue Sky Photography! I was recommended by a friend to use Blue Sky for a photo shoot for my website and I really was so happy with the result. Niels’ fun and friendly attitude instantly created a very relaxed atmosphere for the shoot but this didn’t distract from his professionalism and amazing attention to detail. Every shot was carefully thought out and nothing was too much hassle for Niels. The finished photos look amazing as a result! I would highly recommend using Blue Sky Photography and will not hesitate to use them again in the future. Huge thanks Team Blue Sky!!
Jen Murray
I have to give a shout out to Sarah at Blue Sky Photography - we wanted timeless, natural pictures that we would still love in years to come and she totally nailed it. Sarah was so patient and gave us loads of time to relax with our baby before we got started. She not only put me and my husband at ease but she was fantastic with our baby Ada, making her smile throughout the day as we posed for shots in different set ups. It was great fun. Sarah was also so helpful when it came to choosing pictures to suit certain spaces in our house and replied to emails so quickly. The whole experience from my very first call to having the images delivered to our home has been flawless. They get 5 stars plus from us.
Julie Watt
We have been visiting Alie and Niels for our Cherubs baby photo shoots over the past year and our visits have been some of our favourite memories of watching our little one growing! Alie has a fantastic ability to make our little girl feel comfortable and captures her personality perfectly, even when she's running around the studio! We cherish all of our photos and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We will certainly be going back again! They are also just such lovely people!
Katie Weavers
We used Blue Sky Photography 10 years ago to take our wedding pictures, we were delighted to go back last week (almost 10 years to the day!) to see the lovely Sarah for some school pictures of our youngest starting p1! Sarah made our girls totally relaxed and the pictures sum up our girls perfectly!! Thank you Blue Sky for capturing precious moments!
Fiona McGuire
Blue Sky Photography is amazing.
We had our bump to baby photo shoot, with Alie, she was so calm and patient, and amazing with kids, she even let our big boy have a little go of her camera 😉
I love the photos of our two boys, I shall treasure them forever 🙂
Thankyou Laura &co xxxx
Laura Elvin
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.
We had the pleasure of working with Niels and Alie when they photographed our wedding in April. They were wonderful to work with and made every step of the process not only easy but very enjoyable. They were so excited about our day and we're able to give us good advice not only about photography but other aspects of the planning too.

They are such lovely people who made us feel so relaxed and it was great fun having them around on the wedding day! They photographed each stage of the day professionally and efficiently, also catching all the small details too. We love all our photographs of the day and the album is beautiful.

We cannot recommend Niels and Alie enough!
Ruth Watkins
It was wonderful from start to finish. Incredibly accommodating, friendly, helpful...the studio is beautiful, the photos are gorgeous (some of them have made me cry) and very reasonably priced. We will definitely be visiting again! Thank you, Blue Sky Photography!
Jo Tolkien
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
My husband and I were looking for a photographer to do a photoshoot of our 3 month old baby. After a bit of research, we genuinely couldn't find anyone that offered amazing quality, great value alongside a variety of purchasing options.We had used Blue Sky for our wedding and had the most stunning photos taken of our special day, so it felt fitting that we returned to them for the baby photos. The Baby Club package was really appealing as we liked the idea that we could capture our little boy growing up over his first year in 3 separate photoshoots.Things were tricky on occasion because of the lockdowns, however, when we were able to we arranged the various visits to the studio where Alie did a great job at making our son feel very comfortable and happy. Even at the final photoshoot, we were convinced that she wouldn't have gotten any pictures of him smiling but when it came to reviewing the photos, she had actually captured him perfectly, even smiling!Everyone has raved about the photos, which capture his personality so much and we also love how natural they are as well. They don't feel posed or set up.Without a doubt, Blue Sky have been incredible and I am sure we will return again in the future!
Natalie Rankin
Alie photographed our wedding in June. I cannot recommend Blue Sky enough! Absolutely everything was just fantastic.Right from the beginning, they were a pleasure to work with - always prompt at replying, so friendly and with a really slick booking process. Then we met Alie and things just got better. She was so lovely, knowledgeable and professional. On the wedding day itself, she was such a welcome addition. We all felt so at ease with her, she was a calming presence and seemed to manage to capture perfect photos of every moment without ever disturbing the flow of the day. Many of our guests commented on how lovely our photographer was. Then after the wedding she arranged a viewing in their beautiful studio which was such a treat. The photos were all amazing, and they were ready for us within just a few weeks. Just perfect - I cannot thank Blue Sky (and Alie particularly) enough!! 🙂
Helen Duncan
We could not be more delighted with our experience with Blue Sky. Neils and Alie made the whole process so easy and enjoyable.We took our little boy for a newborn shoot when he was just 10 days old. Alie was so warm and relaxed which put us at ease immediately - it was obvious that our wee one was in great hands. Her care and attention to detail made for the most lovely morning! We are so delighted with our photographs and so pleased that we had that precious time captured as he is growing so fast.A massive thank you to both of you, you are just brilliant at what you do and how you do it!
Amy Elder
Blue Sky Photography have photographed our children several times and we have always been delighted with the results. Lovely people too. Highly recommended.👍
5 Stars...
Paul Adamczuk
We went along for a newborn photo shoot with Alie and we couldn't have had a more relaxed day! It's stressful trying to leave the house with a 2 week old but Alie made us feel so welcome, let us take our time, absolutely nothing was rushed and she was wonderful with our son, all which made it such a great experience. The photos are exactly what we wanted, timeless and beautifully shot. We're looking forward to coming in for the next sessions in the Blue Sky Babies Club!
Laura Watson
Such a lovely experience with Alie at Blue Sky Photography. She made us all feel so relaxed and that’s a big thing for someone who is so awkward when a camera is pointed at them! The children had such a lovely time too. The results were perfect and we will be back. ❤️
Elaine Mathieson
I recently used Blue Sky for a commercial photoshoot and it was a huge success. Alie was incredibly responsive and helpful when organising the shoot via email. The shoot itself went really smoothly, Nils was fantastic and very professional. It was a studio shoot which was fun and relaxed. The photos are great and I am looking forward to the next shoot!
Catherine Thorogood
Fantastic experience! I used Blue Sky for my new corporate headshots, and was pleased to work with Sarah. It was a quick and professional experience, which resulted in a great end-product. Can recommend this studio without hesitation.
Frank Venter
Sarah has taken so many beautiful pictures of my daughter Emma that we actually don't have the wall space to put them all up! She really captured her at every stage so well. She also took pics of all three of our kids together which have been gorgeous too. Sarah made them feel relaxed and at ease and so really got the best out of them. I will definitely use Blue Sky again and highly recommend them.
Clare Landsburgh
Having worked with a number of different commercial photographers in the past I thought I should share the fact that working with Blue Sky Photography has been an absolute pleasure from the very start.They've gone out of their way in helping us with creating a new brand and I really couldn't recommend them highly enough. They deserve every success and I'm certain they'll get it.I look forward to working with them again over the coming months.
Andrew Allfrey
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!

Hollie Bannatyne
Niels and Alie are simply the best wedding photographers we could ever have wished for. Their knowledge, infectious happieness for life and laughter were an amazing addition to our day and could not imagine it without them now! We just received our album this week and WOW what a piece of art for us to treasure! You two really are the dream team, lots of love H&B ❤️
Holly Cowie
I had a great experience with Sarah guiding me through a professional shoot, Sarah used different settings and ideas to come up with a portfolio I was happy with. I would recommend.
Elliot Tanner
Cannot recommend you guys enough. Absolutely fantastic day at our wedding on 23 May! Such a please to have there and nearly everyone commented on how good you were. Can't wait to see the photos. Thanks again. Amanda and Chris xx
Mandy Kerzo
Sarah at Blue Sky Photography was so lovely. I was apprehensive as my kids were in bad moods on the day of the shoot, but Sarah put them at ease and got some lovely family family photos and gorgeous individual ones of the boys. She cheered them up and was the whole shoot was very relaxed. The turn around on the photos was really quick and Sarah took us through our options with no hard sell. We love our prints, thank you!
Kate Ritchie
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
Sarah at Blue Sky made us newly parents feel as if we were in our own comfort zone. She was great with our baby girl and she was loving her moment to shine! I have highly recommended them to our friends, family and to our new parents group. So delighted with the service and the photos are just breathtaking!
Nilufar Jessie Islam
Went in for some professional headshots and was really pleased with the service and quality of the studio! Would highly recommend for anyone thinking about getting pictures taken
Dominic Spalinger
Final group photography lesson today. Loved it! Thanks so much. My brain's jangled but you help to break down the technicalities & make it easy to understand. Will be shouting about you from the rooftops. THANK YOU to you both Alie & Nialls!
Andonella Thomson
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 had the pleasure of bringing our newborn baby for a shoot recently and had a wonderful experience. Alie and Niels made the whole experience easy, relaxing and so enjoyable. What could have been quite a daunting experience was made so much easier by Alie, who allowed plenty time for feeding and settling our baby so that the photos opportunities were amazing! We can’t wait to see the results-the taster we saw was amazing!! Thank you so much!

Hello FunkyLaser
Blue Sky Photography have a beautiful studio, emails were always replied to really quickly - from initial enquiry through to final touches for the photos. The team were all so helpful, friendly and warm. It was relaxed but professional, nothing was too much trouble and there was no hard sell. Very good with the three children.We are absolutely delighted with our photos, this is the 4th photography studio we have visited over the years and it's now our favourite. We shall definitely return here for updated photos in the future.(Christmas shoot, 2020 with Sarah)
Lindsay Anderson
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
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

We went to Blue Sky Photography for a newborn photo shoot when Moira was only about a week old. As new first time parents getting out of our house was a mammoth expedition (a very nerve wracking one!) From the moment we arrived Alie looked after us, the whole atmosphere she created was so comfortable we felt at ease straight away. There was lots of time to capture shots between feeding and changing our newborn. We brought along our family dog as well, and although they say never work with animals or children, Alie did both amazingly. The shots she captured were so beautiful and so timeless we will cherish them forever (she even made us look good and we genuinely left the house like zombies so we still don’t know how she did it!) The products blue sky offered were so great it was amazing being able to share photos of our shoot on an app with loved ones who were unable to visit Moira during the pandemic. We absolutely loved our newborn shoot and will treasure the gorgeous images forever- can’t recommend blue sky enough xx

Ali Ferguson
We recently had a mini family photoshoot with Sarah & it was fab! She was amazing with our one year old and has captured some beautiful, natural photos which we are delighted with. Would highly recommend!
Natalie Burnside
Would highly recommend Sarah at Blue Sky Photography. She made the experience of our newborn photo shoot relaxing, friendly and enjoyable. The photos that she took were fantastic. Looking forward to attending again for our son’s first birthday. Thank you very much Sarah.
J Ferguson
Professional from start to finish. Lovely photos. Very friendly staff. Even managed to get our camera shy 2 year old to get engaged in the shoot. Fully recommend.
John Taylor
Vicky Stark
Thank you so so much for the beautiful pictures. We were delighted to receive them this week and we’re so happy with our choices - thanks for giving us a great selection to choose from. We had a really fun time and it was such a treat after lockdown! I feel sure we’ll visit the studio again sometime.
Jill Simpson
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
My kids had a fantastic experience doing a back to school photo shoot with Blue Sky Photography. Sarah made them so relaxed and captured amazing photos. The whole experience was great from start to finish with Sarah helping us to pick our final prints. Would highly recommend Blue Sky Photograhy.
Gillian Murray
We had a lovely family shoot and even my normally grumpy teen boys relaxed and Sarah took some fantastic photos of us. She made everyone feel so at ease and the shots taken really reflect her expertise. Couldn't be happier and have bought many digital photos as well as some gifts. Thank you Sarah, 5*****.
Heather Macfarlane Tasoren
We use Blue Sky for our family portraits and business website photographs, the results are always brilliant. Alie, Sarah and Neil's are great fun to work with and are very helpful and professional. We will certainly be using them again in the future and would highly recommend them to others.
John Saunderson
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 first met Alie and Niels in 2010. Straight away I seen a passion for not only photography but for people aswell. They photographed our pre wedding shoot( which was a blast), our wedding andmost recently, captured the amazing moments of our tiny newborn and toddler.

They are the most warming talented people/ photographer you will ever meet. The have a flare for discovering what you never thought would be possible In photography.

I have an amazing set of photographers and album that I will cherish forever

Thank you Blue Sky Photography xxx
Lynsey Cross
Alie at Blue Sky Photography took amazing studio family photos for us a couple of years ago so when I heard her & Neils were going to official photographers at my daughter’s end of Primary school party I was stoked! They have an amazing way of putting their models at ease and produce awesome memories in print!
Kathy Gillies
I can’t thank you all enough for making our family picture truly an amazing experience, you made us all feel safe and made the moment a fun one to remember, thank you so much,

We received a present for the birth of our baby girl Lilah of a photoshoot at Blue Sky.
Sarah was amazing throughout. We arrived at the gorgeous studios which is such a homely and welcoming space that is perfect for family shoots. Sarah was so good with our daughter offering toys and making the shoot as slick and straight forward as possible and we were done within about 30 mins.
When we went to view the pictures I was blown away with what images Sarah had taken ,the pictures captured us as a family so well.
Thank you so much Blue Sky Photography for such a lovely experience.
I can highly recommend 🙂
Laura Russell
Absolutely delighted with Blue Sky Photography! Niels is super-talented, friendly, amusing and hugely creative. It was a joy to work with him and I am extremely happy with my photos. If you need great photography, go nowhere else. 100% satisfaction guaranteed! Thank you Niels!
Anne Duncan
Had such a friendly welcome to the studio on Saturday! Everyone was so friendly and great with the kids! Got some amazing pictures of the kids and couldn’t be happier with them! Thanks guys 🎅🏻😘 xx
Jane Wilson
Where to begin! My husband and I sought wedding photographers who could capture our special day in a contemporary and fresh yet timeless way, and Niels & Alie went over and above for us. We loved the images from past weddings on their website and blog and a few emails down the line we knew they had to be part of our day! Although our wedding was worlds away from the day we planned (Covid-19), Blue Sky Photography were supportive, patient, flexible to our new plans and real- everything we needed our wedding suppliers to be. They made our guests (and us!) feel at ease so the whole photography experience was enjoyable. As Niels & Alie are a husband and wife team, they combine their individual talents to provide excellent coverage of the day. Our images capture the joy of our wedding day so well and are beautifully bound in a stunning, heirloom-quality, handmade album. I’d highly recommend Blue Sky Photography; Niels & Alie are truly lovely people who become part of your wedding day, they provide breathtaking photography and brilliant customer service. Thank you very much Blue Sky Photography. xxx

I chose to use Blue Sky Photography after finding them on a local photography google search. Niels responded very quickly to my emails and we quickly setup an appointment for the photography. Niels was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions for the photo-shoot. I then received all of the photos within a few days and they were exactly the high quality photos I was looking for. The pricing for the service received is very good value. Would recommend anyone looking for product photography to contact them!

From my sister’s photoshoot to our engagement and wedding photography I can’t recommend Blue Sky Photography enough!!

Alie and Niels are amazing in what they are doing! It’s not just pictures- it’s stories, it’s feelings and emotions captured in a perfect way!

You guys create ART ! We are in love with every photograph you have taken! Thank you ! ❤️

For professional product images, there’s no one I’d trust more than blue sky. What a really amazing bunch of people!
On top of their exceptional photography, their understanding of branding, marketing and how the right product images fit within that, really takes them to a whole different level.
They took the time to understand my products, my market place, my current brand position (and where I want to take it to) and how to get the right images to suit my specific needs. Making suggestions based on their experience, expert understanding of commercial advertising and a desire to do what is right for the individual client.
On a personal level, I couldn’t have felt more comfortable and totally reassured at every stage. Genuine, friendly, super good fun to be around and went above and beyond throughout. Thanks guys!

What a delight from start to finish - it was real joy to visit the beautiful studio and we instantly felt at ease from the moment we arrived. My team were all nervous about being photographed but all nerves vanished and we all came out having actually really enjoyed ourselves. The photos were wonderful and picked up really well our individual characters and personalities - it's the first time I have ever heard my team members say they liked their own photos - thank you Alie and Niels xx

We had the best time at the weekend shooting our Christmas photos with Alie at Blue Sky. I was apprehensive that we would struggle to get good shots with our son Grayson who, at 18 months old doesn’t really understand the importance of sitting still 😂but I needn’t have worried. Alie was super professional and had all the props to hand to keep him entertained. I’m over the moon with the end result, the difficult part was choosing which photos to keep.
Would not hesitate to recommend Blue Sky for your photos in the future-we will certainly be back! X
Chloe McGuigan
My little boy loved his photo shoot at blue sky photography! Alie made us all feel so at ease and we all had so much fun! The photos turned out amazing! My parents were so happy with their Christmas present 🙂 Will definitely return for another shoot with the family. Thanks again.

Alie and Niels were such a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding planning process. On the day of the wedding, they were non-intrusive when they needed to be and took a lead role in organizing the event photos when needed.The photos they took on our wedding day are simply spectacular and will help keep the memories alive for us for years to come. Thank You!Love Vivian and Hugh

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.

I've used Blue Sky for newborn, back to school and family portraits and have always had a really fabulous experience. Niels and Alie are so lovely and really put everyone at ease making the shoot a really fun, positive experience.
Carolyn Costley
Outstanding, simply outstanding!!

They did our wedding over the Christmas break. They were nothing but helpful beforehand and really set our minds at ease we had made the right choice.

On the day they set us at ease and took the photos we wanted and then basically vanished.

They were like photo ninjas!! Hiding behind doors, windows, trees and ledges to get brilliant photos but not interfere with the day. (Been to another wedding recently and the photographer thought he was more important than the bride!)

We’ve taken forever to sort out our selection and album but they’ve been patient and helpful at every step.

Oh and the photos are amazing. Every one could be wall mounted as a piece of art.

Again outstanding!!!!

Having never done a photo shoot for our business before I was a bit apprehensive about what to expect. On our arrival, Neils made us feel really welcome and soon organised the shoot and managed to capture the ideas that I had in my head into real life images! Perfect! Life made easier.
The guys at Blue Sky photography have a real upbeat vibe and so your time with them is a very positive experience.
I would thoroughly recommend them and will be using them again as our business grows.
Claire Prentice
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
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

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
What lovely lovely people who take truly wonderful photos. My whole team was instantly at ease despite being uncomfortable about being photographed. The whole experience was a delight from start to finish and the photos really picked out the best in each of us - I could not recommend them highly enough 😀
Val Wishart
Delighted with our blue sky photos - fun photoshoot for Mother’s Day - Sarah Made my daughters and me feel very relaxed and we had a great selection to choose from.
Jill Simpson
We all had a lovely time at our Gingerbread shoot today at Blue Sky. Alie, Niels and Sarah are so friendly and made us feel completely at home (perhaps my children treated it slightly too much like home, apologies for the mess we left your lovely studio in �)
It's brilliant that we were able to see the images straight away too - the only difficult part is choosing between all of the gorgeous pictures. If you haven't booked a Christmas Shoot, this is the one to go for. Thanks again. Lee, Rory & Lois xx
Lee Picken
Absolutely fantastic photographers and fantastic couple. Would not have had anyone else to help shoot our day. 5 star is an understatement.

Would highly recommend Blue Sky Photography. I bought a photoshoot for my 11 year old and her best friend. Sarah at Blue Sky made the girls feel right a ease. The girls absolutely loved it, they felt like supermodels. The quality of the photos were good we ended up buying more than we expected. Would do it again x
Karen Freedman
Absolutely love everything Blue Sky does. Weddings, families and corporate - I've had them do the lot. Fantastic photography and brilliant people to work with. Loving the look of their gingerbread house shoots - must get booked in!
Viv Blair
Have you ever had a couple crush? Well I do. Neil's & Ali are the most amazing couple and photographers. From the moment I saw their work online, I knew, I wanted no one else to capture our day. Especially once I met them in person, it was like meeting old friends. They made myself and Chris feel so at ease throughout the wedding. The images they captured will warm my heart for years and years to come. I just can't wait to see the rest next week!! You guys are literally the best! With our sincerest of thanks & love Vicky & Chris � xx
Victoria Lamont
I found working with Niels and Alie a complete treat, they produced shots of my products that I am absolutely thrilled with. They were both professional, efficient and fun to work with and were able to advise on the styling of certain shots. We managed to get through so much in the day I spent with them. I look forward to working with them again in the future for up-coming collections and could not recommend them highly enough.
Cherith Walter
From our very first meeting, we knew we were in safe hands with Alie and Niels (not to mention experienced, exciting, and energetic ones at that!) After our initial chat we felt as if we had known them for much longer than an hour, mainly because they made us feel so welcome at their Morningside studio and because they were so down to earth! All of our questions were answered and more, and it was deeply reassuring (and rather lovely) to be asked so many questions in return about ourselves, how we met, and the plans for our wedding day. They genuinely cared, which made our subsequent meetings and email correspondence a breath of fresh air – the more information we could supply as to the run down of the day and our expectations, the better!

And what a day it was. In the morning, Niels teamed up with the guys to capture the pre-ceremony golf tournament, while Alie joined the girls to capture the beautification/'getting ready' process of the bride and bridesmaids. From this early stage to throughout the ceremony, drinks reception, post wedding breakfast speeches, and evening celebrations, they slotted in like the perfect wedding guests, unobtrusively capturing what felt like a magical day in such a magical way. We loved that they ‘kept us right’ and on schedule amidst the chaos of our wedding (sometimes there’s nothing worse than getting stuck with or monopolised by some of your guests when you should be off having your newlywed photos taken as husband and wife!) They very graciously and politely kept things moving, and as well as taking the traditional family, group, cake-cutting, and first dance type photos, observed SO MUCH MORE, and we are absolutely delighted with how it is all encapsulated in our stunning Queensberry album.

It truly felt like the party hadn’t ended, what with a taster blog post, our eagerly anticipated viewing appointment the following month, and a surprisingly easy selection process. We still get a big high from looking at our pictures nearly one year on! We have loved staying in touch with Alie and Niels and look forward to them photographing the next big stage in our lives. Couldn’t recommend Blue Sky Photography highly enough! x
Kerry Adair
Wonderful photo shoot for my 3 young children on Saturday. Sarah was super fun, patient and quick at capturing the photos. I had lots to choose from and appreciated her input. The studio was styled beautifully and absolutely spotless. We were the only family in the building and the kids loved seeing their names on the board on the way in. Highly recommend and we will be back in the future.

We had a great experience at Blue Sky, so did our dog Poppy. She was the star of the show! We love our pictures and so do our family and friends. Would highly recommend.

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
A truly amazing company to work with. Professional but uber friendly from the very first contact. Efficient and fun but the best bit, the photos are amazing! We will be back and would highly recommend.
Spice Pots
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 delighted with my Christmas photos from Blue Sky Photography. My kids usually hate getting their photo taken and I often end up with photos of the backs of their heads but Alie was great with them and made the whole thing fun. Result- great photos!
Jenny Craig
We done a Christmas photoshoot with Sarah and the full experience was amazing! She was so good with my little girl and the pictures came out amazing! Such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere xx
Nicola Sinclair Mcallister
I have worked with Niels and Alie on commercial photography for a few years now and they are an outstanding team to work with. They are super organised and professional and and make what is a very complicated process seem very easy going and relaxed with amazing results. Recently I booked one of their Mother's Day shoot with Sarah. I wanted to surprise Mum as she had been a bit poorly and wanted to try and capture our 3 generations. Sarah very quickly put us all at ease and picked up straight away on any nerves. She guided us expertly through the shoot and we had so much fun. The final images Sarah captured were so good and filled with personality that we couldn't decide on any individual image so instead picked a whole selection. Great day with a great team.
Mandy Bailey
Ah they are everything you would want in a family photographer- relaxed, patient and talented.
Victoria Khan
Great people, excellent photography. Any easy review.
Alan Smith
We recently had a portrait session with the extended family so we had lots of people to fit in but Sarah managed the whole process with no hassle at all. The shoot was very relaxed and even the reluctant children were soon chatting away to Sarah and happy to pose for photos. The family shots and individual photos of the kids were brilliant and everyone is delighted with the results. We have no hesitation in recommending Sarah and Blue Sky. Thank you 🙂
