Regular blog followers will probably have their head in their hands, like Norma in the photograph above!  You'll know what's coming - it's the 2018 edition of Looking Back.

Inspired by Orange County wedding photographer, Jasmine Star, we've collated the very best images of us in crazy poses, unwittingly making strange faces and generally getting up to high-jinks behind the scenes!

Sit back and enjoy the ride through our 2018 outtakes!

We'll start with the headless photobombing photographer below.

While Sean works hard to photograph our lovely couple, Norma arranges a small picnic in the foreground.

During moments of calm, I like to play my invisible clarinet.

This year has revealed a new trend: Norma's frequent dancing with clients!  Here she is preparing for the dance off.

Norma offers free dancing tuition and often shows clients exactly where to put their feet during the steps.

"Are they doing it right?"

"This is how you dance a hornpipe."

Sometimes Norma gives me a look of despair if she thinks the clients haven't grasped the steps...

Isle of Skye Wedding Elopement Scotland Photography Photographer Photo

...And then she gets violent!

All that dancing must have taken its toll on Norma, as she collapses with exhaustion.

But then here I am asleep behind the camera!

This year, Norma has been obsessed with physical fitness.  Here she is, showing off her strong muscles.

But Norma isn't the only one with strong muscles!

Often, Norma wants a close inspection of the groom's muscles.

"No, but seriously - have you been in training?"

Norma reassures the bride and groom that all the muscle inspections will be over shortly!

I'm not always very good at explaining myself, so sometimes I need to pray for some help!

Isle of Skye Wedding Elopement Photographer Photo

Other times, I try to telepathically transmit thought waves to the couple.

2018 has also been the year where I pretend my hands are birds' wings.

Isle of Skye Wedding Elopement Photographer Photo

A lot.

As many know, Norma was married this year - and she wants to show everyone her engagement ring.

Norma even wants to show Neil, the celebrant, her new ring during the signing of the marriage certificate!

Norma always felt her true calling was as a seamstress.  Here, she sets to work on the groom's outfit with her invisible needle and thread.

"I've told you before, Duncan - I don't need any help!"

Here I am practicing my semaphore - without the flags.

Norma and I have yet to grasp the concept of high fiving.

"Wait, so I can't use the back of my hand to high five people?"

"No, Roz, it has to be the palm.  Something like this..."

Isle of Skye wedding elopement marry me photographer skye photo

"Like this, Norma?"

Isle of Skye wedding elopement marry me photographer skye photo

"No, more like this!"

"I could have sworn this was where I left my invisible broom stick!"

Norma keeps herself amused during the wedding day.

Another year on and still racing the clients!

It seems nobody told me it was rude to point!

But I don't like it when the clients point back!

Isle of Skye wedding elopement marry me photographer skye photo

People did tell me that if I pointed a finger, I had three pointing back at myself - it seems it's true!

Norma has a certain facial expression when she thinks clients haven't grasped the pose she has asked them to do.

This has definitely been our wettest year ever.  Norma wraps a plastic bag round her camera body to protect it from the rain...

...While I just look like I've taken up beekeeping.

One Fairy Pools engagement shoot was held on such a wet day, the path was too wet to cross!  We found an alternative route - and my legs appear to stop working halfway across.

Once, I spotted a rare fish in the Fairy Pools!  I made sure our clients paid careful attention to it at all times.

"Look, it's just there!"

Isle of Skye Wedding Photography Photographer Photo

"Where?"

Isle of Skye Wedding Photography Photographer Photo

"There!"

"Look, it's just there!"

Norma and I like to think of ourselves as making an effort with our appearances.  At the start of the year, we'd like to think we looked presentable.

And, then, we get progressively more windswept and weather-beaten!

Trendy wedding photographers?  Absolutely not!

All wedding photographers know they sometimes need to do uncomfortable things to get the shot.  Often, such as at the Fairy Pools engagement shoot below, that included getting a bit wet for me...

Isle of Skye Wedding Photography Photographer Photo

...But Alex took this principle to extremes when he dropped his entire kit into the sea (thankfully he wasn't photographing a wedding at this time!)

"You want me to do what?  Abseil down there???"

Who looks happier photographing weddings?  Me or Norma?

I think it might just be me...!

Or maybe not!

This year has seen two very special individuals join the Euphoria team: Sean and Alex.

Here is Sean at work during a Brothers' Point wedding proposal.

And a sly snap of Alex at work during a Dunvegan Castle assignment.

And, finally, a portrait of Norma and me at a very special Loch Coruisk elopement - held on the same day as Norma's own wedding to Sean!

A huge thank you goes out to all our fun-loving clients and to the wonderful Euphoria team who don't mind a laugh at their own expense! 

Congratulations to all our couples - 2018 was a very romantic year for us all and we can't wait for all the magic, fun and laughter that 2019 will bring!
