Bright, beautiful, natural images which tell the story of your wedding.

Hello! I’m Karen, the lady behind the lens! I work with down-to-earth brides (like you!), to create bright, beautiful, natural images that will tell the story of your wedding, so that you’ll have a stunning collection of images to remember your special day, without feeling awkward in front of my camera.

I combine three elements to create my signature style of wedding photography: documentary pictures full of emotion; traditional, timeless images; and artistic shots of all your wee details.

Of course, it’s not just about the images. I’m equally passionate about providing a top-notch, friendly service, full of personal touches, and keeping the wedding photography side of things totally stress-free!

I'll blend in with you and your bridesmaids, so the hair and make-up session and girly chat can unfold naturally! I'm smiley and cheerful (without being annoying) and this too will put you at ease throughout the day. 

I can step in and organise things when needed but, mostly, I'll be in the background, so you can focus on celebrating with your loved ones, safe in the knowledge that I'll be discreetly working away, with no moody, tacky or overly staged photos!

“The results have taken our breath away!”
28 November 2020
“To say we are happy with our wedding photographs would be a massive understatement. Karen captured the day beautifully and we feel so fortunate that she was able to photograph our wedding. Karen is a fantastic communicator. We had to postpone our wedding and she was very diligent in keeping us abreast of the changing restrictions for weddings over the months. On the day, Karen proved herself to be a dream at organising our guests by efficiently arranging each group shot and ensuring nobody was standing around for too long so we could all get back to the party. We were nervous about the couple shots as we are both a bit camera shy but Karen was so relaxing to be around we quickly eased into it and the results have taken our breath away! Karen delivered photographs that we will truly treasure forever. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Book her to photograph your wedding, you will not be disappointed!”

“So incredibly understanding and supportive”
07 November 2020
“We cannot put into words how happy we are to have had Karen at our wedding day. We had so much uncertainty surrounding our day due to the constant changes/restrictions because of COVID-19 and Karen was so incredibly understanding and supportive throughout the run up to our day! From our first chat at a wedding fair, to the end of our wedding day, Karen was professional, friendly and nothing was a problem! We had some extra requests and Karen accommodated them all without question. She caught so many moments that we didn’t get to see, as the bride and groom, and it was so lovely to be able to look back on the candid moments of our day. We are looking forward to having Karen come back to our wedding reception next year (postponed due to COVID-19) and capturing the rest of the magical moments! We cannot recommend Karen Thorburn Photography highly enough! Thank you for everything Karen!”

"Our photographs are out of this world!"
09 August 2019
“We booked Karen for our wedding on 9th August 2019. We had an amazing service start to finish, with plenty of communication from the time of booking last year to the actual wedding day. A lovely lady who makes you feel at ease. Our photographs are out of this world! We got married in the Scottish Highlands and didn’t know the area well. Karen took beautiful pictures at the wedding venue and then as an added personal touch, even took us to a few locations she recommended for additional shots. Would highly recommend Karen for a professional, trustworthy and friendly service.”

“So easy going and full of great ideas”
02 June 2018
“Karen was lovely to work with, so easy going and full of great ideas. She really allowed us to relax on our wedding day, knowing that she was taking care of preserving our memories. The photographs are beautiful and we loved her style of capturing everything in the moment. We cannot thank her enough. She was so accommodating, we could even say she saved the day when our transportation literally didn’t show. Karen stepped in without a beat and ensured we made it in time.”
