About Us

We love stories. Stories packed with raw emotions and little details.

Pippa's Journey

I’ve been photographing wedding stories all over the world since 2006 – the same year I got married to Ian (my biz buddy, amazing Dad to our daughter Poppy and my partner in crime). We got married in a tiny chapel at the top of a castle in Scotland on a cold winter’s day. We had wild trailing flowers, a piper and the biggest chocolate cake I had ever seen. It rained but it didn’t matter. I remember laughter, untamed ceilidh dancing, and so much joy and merriment all around.

My past life involved travelling the world filming wildlife documentaries for National Geographic and Discovery Channel. I absolutely loved it, and these experiences have hugely influenced the photographer I am today – and how I will document your story.

Ian's Journey

I joined Pippa in 2009 having come from a varied and very successful career in London working in film and TV before going onto work as a photographer and graphic designer ultimately heading up a design team for one of the world’s largest law firms which took me all over the world on creative assignments.

After becoming a part of Pippa Mackenzie Photography, we developed LIFE, our luxury coffee table book that we produce for every one of our clients. My experience and love for graphic design has enabled us to create something that is totally unique and special for each and every one of our clients.

I am also an experienced, professional drone pilot which allows us to bring another unique dimension to telling your wedding story.

I love travelling to unknown places.

Getting off the beaten track.

We’ve had the privilege of working with the wonderful Pippa and her team on a number of magnificent events in a number of countries. Pippa is just world class.

Our Style

We love noticing the little stories within the bigger story. The details and the heart-felt connections. Shooting in soft rich tones in wide landscapes and beautiful backdrops. 

Perhaps your story has already started. Or it’s one that is soon to begin?  We would love to capture it for you.

We are not just your photographer. We’re here to take you on the most beautiful and special journey. 

We love storytelling. Letting a story flow in its own natural course and creating a collection of photos where each image captures a real moment with energy and emotion.

Whether it’s a wedding, a special birthday, a travel adventure, an anniversary, you’re here because you have a story that you’d like to have told. 

We’d love to document it for you.

I love living a real life. One of authenticity.

And genuine connections.

Pippa was really amazing… part therapist, part photographer… I don’t know what I would have done without her! The best part though… the pictures! They are breath-taking and captured our emotions and the day perfectly. The LIFE book that they created for us will always be a treasure for our family and tells the story of our love seamlessly.
