Meet your Photographer

Scotland adventure photographer

Hello! My name is Alysa and I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based in Edinburgh. I’m so excited that you’re considering a photoshoot in Scotland. This beautiful country has so much to offer. As much as I love photoshoots in Edinburgh, it’s so much fun to get outside of the city and explore well known areas like Glencoe, and lesser known spots with castles, ruins, wild garlic, and more!

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  photographer in Scotland who can deliver exceptional service and breathtaking images, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me today! 

Thank you for booking direct and supporting a local business.

Check out our Adventure Shoot Location guide here.

No! You are more than welcome to reach out if you have a different location in mind. I often get requests for photographs of the estates people are staying at (because you can indeed rent a castle in Scotland!) or different natural sites such as the Hermitage. Please get in touch here for a custom quote.

No, Adventure Photoshoots do not include transportation. For Glencoe shoots I recommend having a car to travel between locations. 

Adventure Shoot bookings open 5 months in advance. 

After booking we’ll discuss time options based on when locations are open and when there’s light available. Please get in touch using the form at the bottom of this page if you want to check on a specific time.

Yes! You can find more details and book here.

Scotland is a cold and rainy country but it is stunning! The shoot will be the most fun if you embrace the wind and rain with full expectations of romantic windswept photos.

The weather can change instantly and weather radars are rarely right. If it’s the case that there is exceptionally bad weather I will offer to reschedule, however short of a full-on hurricane we will continue. 

I don’t offer indoor shoots because these require prior approval from the venue. Venues often also charge a fee for commercial photography. When you pay a photographer this is commercial photography, regardless of how you plan on using the photos. If you have an indoor or private location you wish to shoot in, it is your responsibility to organise this and pay any necessary fees.

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 4 weeks 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.

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. 

Absolutely! Check out my About page 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 15 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 and you must select the wedding add on at checkout. Weddings are more complex and require more planning and gear than a traditional portrait shoot which is why there is an extra fee.
