Siobhan Stewart Photography

 Hey there!

I'm Siobhan (pronounced Shi-vawn) and I'm a wedding and fashion photographer based in Edinburgh. I photograph in and around Scotland as well as destinations throughout the world because I absolutely love to travel. 

I've always been an extremely creative person, I loved spending my early years doing all sorts of arts and crafts at nursery. I still remember the excitement I felt when my parents bought me my first camera when I was 10 years old and I've loved capturing images ever since.  After leaving school I immediately began studying professional photography and 4 years later I graduated with a Bachelor of the Arts Degree.

I would love to hear all about your special plans so please get in touch!
