Scotland Elopement and Wedding Photographer

Hey! Im Seán.

Scotsman. Climber of Rocks. Guitar Worrier.

I was born in Edinburgh, the city of sideways rain, lost tourists and infinite festivals.

I studied photography here and spent a few years as an editorial photographer before jumping ship and into weddings.

I shot my first elopement to pay for a new guitar amp and although Indie rock n roll fame never arrived, Im glad I found a new path.

I still love being in the mix, working and creating with couples and I feel super grateful to have been allowed in to document so many weddings and elopements for good people from all over the World.

Im even more passionate about the craft of photography than when I was that young, wide eyed student and I still get my kicks from chasing light and seeking out those decisive moments.

An outdoorsy boy with a love of nature, cinema, art and music, I work, play and breathe best when Im in the wild places of Scotland and beyond.

I live just South of Edinburgh with my partner Justyna (who is an also a photographer and works alongside me) and our crazy Border Collie dog ‘Molly’.

We are both keen rock climbers, hikers and snowboarders and spend as much time as we can in the remote parts, immersed in nature, under the stars chilling in our campervan. We also enjoy going to gigs, city breaks, hot sun and cool beers!


I was recently interviewed on the ‘Perspective’ Podcast by Gregg and Simon from the awesome Cinemate Films. If you want to hear me chat more about my approach to elopements and weddings please do press play.
