Meet your Photographer

edinburgh-based professional photographer

Hello! My name is Alysa and I’m a professional photographer based in Edinburgh. I’m so excited that you’ve found this page and are considering portraits in some of Edinburgh’s most iconic spots. Whether you’re local to Edinburgh or are traveling in from around the world,  a professional shoot is the perfect momento and something you really will treasure forever (as cheesy as it sounds!).

Edinburgh offers a wealth of beautiful locations, from the historic streets to the stunning views of Arthur’s Seat from Calton Hill. I take pride in working closely with my clients to choose the perfect setting and create images that tell the story of their travels. If you’re visiting the city, I can help you plan the perfect iconic locations. If you’re local and have endless photos in these spots from your own adventures, I can also suggest other scenic options that are sure to be a bit more under the radar.

I offer a range of packages to suit your needs and budget, and I’m always happy to work with you to create a custom package that perfectly fits your vision. So, if you’re looking for a portrait photographer in Edinburgh who can deliver exceptional service and breathtaking images, get in touch with me today! 

Thank you for booking direct and supporting a local business.

Your Edinburgh Photoshoot Questions, Answered

Photos are professionally edited and delivered in a private online gallery where you can download your favorite photos in high-resolution jpg format. I do my best to deliver everything as soon as possible without sacrificing quality. You can usually expect to see all your photographs within 10 business days of the photoshoot day.  Upon delivery you are responsible for safekeeping all materials so I suggest you make a back up.

Posting my work online is an important part of developing my business and reaching potential clients. I might post a couple of photos on social media, as well as on the blog. If you are worried about your privacy or don’t wish to have your photos posted anywhere, please do communicate this with me beforehand during your shoot or before via email.

I would love to meet you over a video call so we can get to know each other and you can ask me all you want to know! Feel free to book a call with me here.

I don’t overedit the photos. Please use my portfolio and the work on this page as an example of what your photos may look like. I love to work with natural light and to create deep, rich edits that showcase the beauty of Scotland (and you!).

Worry not! I love traveling and am available anywhere you want me to come. Please get in touch for more details.

We’ll do our best to accommodate any last-minute bookings, but to ensure you get your preferred date, time, and photographer, we recommend booking at least 4 weeks in advance. Edinburgh is particularly busy during the summer, especially August, due to the Fringe, so it’s best to book as far in advance as possible. When you click on the “Check Availability” for the package you would like, you’ll be able to book up to 8 weeks in advance.

I love working with clients from all over the world regardless of where they find me. However, it can be disheartening when I do all of the work in arranging availability, creating timelines, providing recommendations for locations, traveling, shooting, editing, and requesting reviews only to receive about 50% of what you pay to a big corporation. By booking directly with me I can better assure you of quality and service – plus you’re supporting my small Edinburgh-based business – truly supporting the economy of the place you’re traveling to and what’s more local than that. 

Absolutely! Proposals are one of my favorite things to photograph. I’m more than happy to hide and make it a surprise or plan it as part of the shoot. There is no minimum duration for booking a proposal shoot. 

Absolutely! I offer different wedding packages that you can view here. If you’re still wanting a shorter wedding photography package, I require a minimum of two hours. 

In addition to working as a vacation and portrait photographer, I do a lot of wedding photography and these usually take place on the weekends. If you can only do your Edinburgh photoshoot on a weekend, please get in touch using the form below and if I don’t have a wedding booked I will do my best to accommodate you. 

Yes, portrait shoots only cover central Edinburgh. If you would like a longer shoot in another part of Scotland, wedding photography prices and packages apply.
