May 2019, Basilica di San Silvestro in Capite, Rome
Neil and I got married in beautiful Rome on the 2nd of May 2019. Having seen Siobhan's amazing work on her website, we were absolutely thrilled to hear that she was available for our big day. What a stroke of good luck!!! The service she provided from the very start was second to none! Conor dealt with all queries and assistance via very prompt emails throughout. Siobhan was so flexible, very easy to work with and she put us at ease from the moment we met. She called to our hotel and took photographs of the preparations and stayed with us throughout the day. Siobhan photographed the wedding ceremony with great sensitivity and respect. We just knew that we were in very safe hands as her artistic eye and attention to detail was very evident. Our wedding photographs were then taken around the cobbled streets of Rome which was great fun! What a gifted, professional lady - we cannot recommend Siobhan enough. She was just fantastic and it was a pleasure to meet her. We honestly can't praise her enough! Thanks to you both, Siobhan and Conor for everything.
October 2019 at Borgo Di Tragliata, Rome
Can't say enough about Siobhan. First off what a lady and second she makes you feel so comfortable. That soothing Donegal accent. I barely noticed her in the room, well I could hear her and my bridesmaids having fun and laughing. What a day we had and Siobhan captured the most magical photos. Like something from a fairy tale. Thanks, Siobhan for letting me relive my wedding day all over again by sending me my wedding photos.
September 2019, Rome.
From start to finish we are so pleased with the work Siobhan did for us. Not being from Italy, we really did not know what to expect or where to go to take photos on our big day. She helped us pick locations, flowers, and gave us little tips for the big day. Our pictures are stunning and we will forever remember our wedding day thanks to the beautiful work by Siobhan. She was so easy to work with from booking to navigating us around the city and such a pleasure to spend our day with. We are just so happy!
September 2019, Rome.
Siobhan is an artist. She can feel the moment and take it with the camera. She has pure talent for colours, lights and shadows. Every picture is a painting. Definitely, we can't choose better!
September 2019, Rome
Siobhan was our photographer last September for our small wedding in Rome. From the moment I contacted Siobhan and Conor, I knew we will be looked after and will have amazing photos form our special day. We wanted our photos to be taken before the wedding not to leave our family afterwards and Siobhan came up with some lovely suggestions and was open to ours. This made the whole planning stress free. She has arrived early to our hotel and in her relaxed manner, snapped some lovely photos while we got ready. During the photoshoot even my husband who hates photos being taken relaxed. She has managed to take some amazing ( and rare ) photos of him smiling and laughing which we will treasure for life. Choosing Siobhan to take our wedding photos was one fo the best decisions ever. I would highly recommend her and Conor for anyone getting married in Rome. Thank you, Siobhan! Anna & Don.
September 2019, Castello di Petrata, Assisi, Umbria
Thank you so much for our beautiful photos. Your creativity has definitely shone through. We particularly love the black and white photos. We appreciate you storming the hills of Assisi in the heat to capture some great photos too. We miss Italy and hope our paths meet again in beautiful Umbria. In the meantime, I look forward to continuing to see your beautiful work on Instagram. Thank you again, Abby and Dominic.
September 2019, Tenuta di Casa Bruciata Perugia, Umbria.
We highly recommend Siobhan to anyone wanting a photographer in Italy. She is so talented and passionate about what she does and was able to capture our wedding perfectly. Siobhan is friendly and professional and it was so refreshing to work with her. We felt at ease the entire time and most importantly, we had so much fun working with her. She made us feel at ease the whole time. We love all the photos and they are all done to such a high quality. We cannot wait to share them with our family and friends. Thank you for being part of our special day and making it so memorable for us.
September 2019, San Silvestro, Rome
Thank you so much for such wonderful photos. Both Siobhan and Conor right from the start answered every email and question we had and any help they could offer was given. On the day Siobhan just started into work and there was no need to guide her, she took all the photos without any stress and it was great to not have to worry about anything. Thank you for all your help and we would certainly recommend Siobhan for any bride. Thank you, Siobhan. Michelle & Marty
August 2019, Borgo di Tragliata, Rome.
We contacted Siobhan for our wedding photography after reading so many glowing reviews and looking at beautiful images of other weddings she had taken. Communication was easy and Conor was so helpful and quick to reply! We didn't get to meet Siobhan before our 'big day', but this didn't matter; she was so easy to get along with and we had already communicated what we did and didn't want via email. Siobhan was relaxed and made us both feel completely at ease, which we wouldn't normally be in front of the camera! We received our online gallery back within hardly any time at all - I couldn't believe how soon we were able to view our images! We absolutely loved our photography and feel it captured this amazing day perfectly for us. We would 100% recommend Siobhan to anybody considering her for their wedding. Thank you so much, Siobhan and Conor!
July 2019, Borgo di Tragliata, Rome.
To say that our wedding photos were beyond our expectations would be an understatement! Siobhan captured our wedding perfectly, every little detail was captured as a memory to treasure. When we chose Siobhan for our wedding day in Borgo di Tragliata in July 2019 we knew she wouldn’t disappoint. We didn’t want the traditional, formal style wedding photos and Siobhan certainly delivered exactly what we had envisioned. She is really professional and confident in her work and knows how to capture the perfect shots in Borgo. Her friendly and humorous manner put everyone at ease and brought about a relaxed atmosphere from the moment she arrived in the bridal suite. To any couple considering Siobhan as their wedding photographer, don't think about it, just do it! You won’t regret it! Lisa & Neil.
June 2019, Casale Doria Pamphilj, Fiumicino, Rome
I can't speak highly enough of Siobhan, From our initial enquiries for booking to the wedding day, the whole process was easy and stress-free. Siobhan was fantastic on the wedding day, she was so lovely and fun to be with us the morning of the wedding and was fantastic with my two small children. Throughout our day she snapped away and gave us the direction we needed when we needed it. She knew our Videographer and Makeup Artist which was brilliant because they all worked easily together. When we got our photos back we were simply blown away...they speak for themselves and have an amazing mix of natural candid shots and the family photos. This was exactly what we wanted and Siobhan has captured our wedding and the atmosphere perfectly. Every photo immediately transports us back to our day and those precious moments that thanks to Siobhan we will never forget. Thank you so much, Siobhan, you really are the very best!
June 2019, Borgo di Tragliata, Rome.
Siobhan was so easy to get in contact with. She replied very quickly and with lots of info. She also sent an email the day before the wedding explaining the time she would arrive - which was hugely helpful. On the day we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She gave great directions and got all of the little details we wanted to remember from the day. Looking at our photos now we are absolutely delighted. I would 100% recommend Siobhan and her team.
April 26, 2019, St Isidore's College Chapel, Rome.
We arranged our Rome wedding from Ireland and booked Siobhan for photography based on a recommendation. Siobhan and Conor were both really responsive, informative and helpful in the run-up to the wedding. On the day Siobhan was absolutely fantastic. She worked away in the background while we were getting ready and was very unobtrusive. We received our images really promptly after the wedding and absolutely loved them. We can't wait to receive our album. We would happily be recommending her for wedding photography.
May 2019, Family portrait shoot at Pian di Cascina, Umbria.
We had family photos done with our two young children and Siobhan was lovely. She was so relaxed and patient with the children and let them gravitate to what made them happy, smelling flowers/climbing rocks. We got some excellent candid shots as well as really nice structured group shots. So happy we decided to do them! Also good to note that due to the rainy whether she was flexible to move our scheduled shoot a few days to when the rain stopped. We really appreciated everything!
June 2019, family portrait shoot at Colle de la Marchese, Umbria, Italy
We were so very pleased with not only the work that Siobhan did to give us amazing family portraits and candid shots of our parents' 50th wedding anniversary party, but also just her very warm and personal style. She melded right into our group, got very intimate shots without being obtrusive at all with the camera. Our group included 6 children (one of them only 2 years old), and she managed to get the "great" group shots we were looking for - no small feat! We would HIGHLY recommend Siobhan for a wedding or similar important family event. Very warmly, The Santucci Family Denver, Colorado, USA
July 2018, Rome.
Siobhan was our photographer in July 2018 and was amazing. From the minute of helping me to get ready to taking us to every location possible, our photos are absolutely stunning and such a down to earth person. Thank you Siobhan x
May 2019, Rome
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer than Siobhan! She was such a joy to work with. Even prior to the wedding, communication with her and Connor was very efficient. I never felt like I was left in the dark. She even asked us a few weeks before what kind of pictures we wanted. She was very flexible, and she made sure to include our requests as she planned out our day. on the wedding day itself, she made everything so easy for us. Since we’re not from Rome, we really didn’t know where to go, but Siobhan took us to all the right places and she took the BEST pictures of our day. She was so nice and friendly; we felt at ease with her. It didn’t feel like we were taking pictures for hours because she made it fun and enjoyable. I can’t stop looking at the pictures because they are gorgeous. I’m blown away by each and every photo. She was able to capture all the excitement and happiness we had that day. I could go on and on, but just know that if I were ever to go back to Rome for our anniversary or another big event, I would hire Siobhan in a heartbeat. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!
May 2019, Hotel Hassler Hotel, Rome.
We were fortunate enough to have Siobhan photograph our wedding at the Hotel Hassler in Rome. From start to finish, she was extremely attentive, thorough and friendly. Siobhan comes across as someone who is happy to be part of your wedding day and wants to make it as special as possible for the couple. We are delighted with the photos taken and would highly recommend her.
April 2019, Rome
Siobhan was fabulous throughout the day. she brought us to some fantastic locations and took excellent photos that will stay with us forever. Thanks so much!!!
April 2019, Castello di Petrata, Assisi, Umbria.
We can't thank Siobhan enough for the wonderful photos she captured at our wedding. She went over and above to make sure she captured every moment, from getting ready to the ceremony, reception and first dance. Myself and my husband were both very nervous about having our photo taken and we thought that our awkwardness would show in the images, but Siobhan put us at ease from the start and made the whole process a lot of fun. Thank you!

May 2018, Borgo di Tragliata, Rome
What can I say about Siobhan? she’s truly fantastic! We got married last May in Borgo Di Tragliata in Italy. We wanted our photographer to be relaxed, capture natural photographs of us and our guests! To be there but not obvious. I knew the minute I met Siobhan on the wedding morning that she was the right choice and so much fun. Everything was so relaxed and her photos captured that. When we got our photos soon afterwards we were beyond delighted! She listened to our brief and what we wanted and delivered that and much much more. Don’t think twice about booking her, just book her! She’s fantastic!!
December 2018, San Pietro in Vincoli and Palazzo Brancaccio, Rome
Siobhan was such a delight to have as our wedding photographer! She made the day so much fun and it felt like she was family. Siobhan has such a talent for making you feel relaxed and natural for the pictures. You can enjoy each moment and be present while she captures all of the magical parts of the day. Her ability to find the right lighting at the right moment makes pictures seem like paintings. We are so grateful to Siobhan and over the top happy with every picture in our wedding album. She is a true artist and a fantastic person!
July 2018, Borgo Di Tragliata, Rome.
Siobhan was our photographer last July when we got married in Borgo Di Tragliata in Italy. Our wedding was small and intimate and I wanted a photographer that would catch the essence of our day. I was very very nervous on the morning of the wedding but once Siobhan arrived her calming presence helped me to relax and enjoy the preparations. She was so easy to be around and was very undemanding but still got all the important shots. There were times throughout the day and night that I forgot she was there because she just became part of the group snapping away. We had a no-phone rule during the ceremony and it was the best decision we made. Our ceremony photos from Siobhan are so beautiful and there are no phones in the guests’ hands at any stage, everyone was totally focused on the ceremony and Siobhan was left to do her work without distractions. We also opted for her to stay late into the night, another great decision as the photos from later in the night are hilarious! We’d highly recommend Siobhan, she’s so professional and we’re thrilled with our pictures.
December 2018, Rome.
From the moment I contacted Siobhan Hegarty Photography, the experience was extremely positive. All the information I required was provided so promptly, the service was impeccable. The photographs are excellent the value for money is amazing. Siobhan was so enjoyable and made the whole experience so relaxing. I would recommend this company 100% and wish them every success in the future.
May 2018, Rome.
I would happily recommend Siobhan as a wedding photographer. Siobhan came to our hotel in Rome on the morning of the wedding and put us all at ease. She snapped away while we were getting our makeup done and also took photos of the groom and best man before they left. She was open to all suggestions and she travelled with us in our wedding car after the ceremony and took us to some lovely iconic parts of Rome for our photos. I opted for a Photobook and it came out super. We are so delighted with it. Also, thanks to Conor for organising the booking and also the Photobook. Best wishes A&A
August 2018, Rome
I would highly recommend Siobhan as your wedding photographer. She is excellent at taking amazing pictures and knew exactly where to go to Rome to get the best shots. She is very kind and was so helpful on the morning of my wedding. Siobhan and Conor were very fast getting my photos to me and the wedding album that we just received is stunning. Thanks, Siobhan and Conor.
September 2018, Rome.
Siobhan was a dream, super professional and talented. We love every picture she took. Even when at the end of the photoshoot we were really tired, it was totally worth it. Thank you for being so patient with us. We love your work.
June 2018, Rome
We had the most wonderful, special wedding day. An intimate wedding in St.Isidores, a tour of Rome in an open-top Vintage Fiat 500 and finished off with a rooftop terrace wedding dinner in Savoy Hotel. Our wonderful wedding in Rome! Siobhan was absolutely fantastic! Turning up a reassuring ten minutes early, effortlessly taking shots, conversations about locals…in Donegal! Helping button up the bride! It was a pleasure. Great communication before the wedding. Thank you, Siobhan and Conor for all your help. I would have no hesitation in recommending you for wedding photography.
September 2018, Rome.

August 2018, Sala Rossa Campidoglio, Rome
Siobhan was an absolute delight and made our day so incredibly special. The experience was just wonderful and we gave Siobhan free reigns to take us wherever she wanted – and the pictures turned out SO beautiful! She was very considerate with us (walking on cobblestone in heels and all that) and there was absolutely no rush. She knew what would look good and she was a 100% spot on! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. Hugs from the Norwegian Nerds.
July 2018, Borgo di Tragliata Rome
Siobhan's casual and friendly manner was so welcome on the morning of the wedding. She was encouraging and assured us all that we were looking great even while we were blown asunder! She captured our wedding day perfectly. Conor created an album that we love and will cherish forever!
June 2018, Casale Doria Pamphilj Rome
Dealing with Conor and Siobhan has been such a pleasure. We had our wedding in Casale Doria Pamphilj in June. On the day, Siobhan came and was such a pleasure to work with. She moved around in the background capturing all the special moments of us getting ready before the ceremony. She is great at giving direction for the photos so they don’t turn out too “posey". When we received our photos, it was such an amazing time both reliving the day and realising the special moments Siobhan had managed to capture without us even noticing! Thank you both so much for everything and for doing such an amazing job of capturing one of the happiest days of our lives. Rona and Lucian.
June 2018, Cortona, Tuscany.
Donovan and I were so grateful to have found Siobhan and have her capture the special moments of our big day. She offered us suggestions and guidance and put us at ease on the day. The final photos that we received were better than we could have hoped for and I would strongly recommend Siobhan if you are looking for a professional photographer with a creative flair. Thank you so much, Siobhan, for bringing our memories of the day to life.
June 2018, Casa Baldelli, Umbertide Umbria.
Siobhan was professional, friendly and a delight to work with, she made us feel at ease from the get-go and captured our very special day perfectly. We just love our photos! Thank you, Siobhan and Conor for everything.
February 2018, Rome
We cannot thank Siobhan enough for the wonderful photos of our wedding day. She is really the easiest person to work with; knowledgeable, professional and knew exactly what would work. It was actually seeing Siobhan’s photographs on Facebook a few years ago that put the idea of a Rome wedding in our heads. She captured the exact atmosphere of our day and we will cherish the photos forever.
February 2018, Rome
We had Siobhan as our photographer for our wedding on the 5th of Feb in Rome. From the initial email, Siobhan & Conor were so helpful in answering any of our queries and were so quick to respond. Siobhan was fantastic on the day of the wedding, she is very friendly and puts you at ease, she has such an eye for detail and I am amazed looking at the photos she captured. Being an interracial couple, I was worried about how our skin tones would reflect in the photos, I had communicated my concern to Siobhan before the day of the wedding. All my worries were for nothing, we both look our absolute best in the photos. We both thoroughly enjoyed our photoshoot session with Siobhan. We got access to our online photo gallery within 2 weeks of the wedding which is such a quick turnaround. Siobhan’s photography packages are such good value for money as well. Thank you, Siobhan, for giving us beautiful photos which we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
October 2017, Rome, Norwegian Embassy
We are so happy that we found Siobhan, and chose to use her expertise for our wedding in Rome. The communication before the wedding was good, quick and easy. At the wedding day, she arrived very punctual and immediately started doing her magic as both groom and bride were doing the last preparations before heading to the Norwegian embassy for the ceremony. Siobhan had good ideas and suggestions to where we could take photos. We wanted pictures with the “Italian feeling”, and with her expertise, we’ve got many lovely photos from Trastevere. Our wedding guests had only nice things to say about Siobhan, and so do we. Her natural style, good mood, great eye for motives. We are very pleased with Siobhan’s work at our wedding.
October 2017, Borgo di Tragliata Rome.
Siobhan took our wedding pictures in Borgo Di Tragliata last month and to say we are beyond pleased is an understatement. Siobhan was so lovely and so professional and nothing was a problem. Our wedding pics and amazing, cannot stop looking at them. Thank you so much for being part of our day. Ruth & Vivian.
October 2017, Rome.
I cannot thank Siobhan enough! From the very first contact, Siobhan was so helpful with all my questions not only on the photography side but also helped on my many questions about having a wedding in Rome. As I did not have a wedding planner and had never been to Rome, I couldn?t have done it without her advise! On the day of the wedding, Siobhan was professional but so friendly and made everyone feel at ease. Siobhan brought us to beautiful areas to have our photos taken after the ceremony so did not even have to think or stress about that beforehand. Just received our photos and cannot express how happy we are with them, they are beautiful and captured the day perfectly. Thank you so much, Siobhan, I can not recommend Siobhan enough, she is amazing!
September 2017, Rome.
Ivor & I are delighted we had Siobhan to capture our special day for us in Rome. From when Siobhan arrived she put us both at ease with her professional attitude and easy-going manner. We would highly recommend Siobhan to anyone who is looking for a professional photographer. Her location ideas and an eye for good lighting are what we expected from a professional like Siobhan. We are absolutely delighted with the photos and are looking forward to sharing them with our family and friends. Thank you so much for doing a wonderful job and helping our day flow so perfectly.
July 2017, Rome
Siobhan was very good on the day making us feel comfortable and taking some fantastic pictures. I particularly like her use of light, the additional photos of the details of the church and the area where the hotel which was unexpected but helps us remember the day in greater detail. Thank you so much!
September 2016, Rome.
Organising a wedding from across the world was both a daunting and exciting experience. Siobhan, even in her initial emails, put our minds at ease. This lady is amazing, fully professional, friendly, accommodating and all with a slight Irish flair. She made us immediately comfortable with her and her relaxed, yet ultra-professional approach to her work made the whole experience very enjoyable. We love our photographs they are stunning and this is all due to Siobhan’s experience and knowledge of Italy and all it has to offer. We love that Siobhan was somehow able to make it seem, in most of our pictures, as if we are alone in one of the most visited and busy cities in the world. We would absolutely recommend Siobhan to anyone thinking of getting married in this amazing part of the world. Thank you so much, Siobhan, for making the memories of our special day so beautiful.
February 2017, Rome
Siobhan did an incredible job with our photos. Siobhan was really helpful in suggesting possible locations and we are thrilled with how our wedding pictures turned out. Both Siobhan and Conor were very easy to deal with in the run-up to the wedding and as somebody arranging their wedding from abroad, this was really important to us. On the day, Siobhan was unobtrusive and professional. I would highly recommend Siobhan as a photographer.
February 2017, Rome
We were fortunate to find such talented photographers for our wedding in Rome. We had coordinated the details with Siobhan via email. Siobhan and Giuliano offered different perspectives to every moment of our day. They have a great eye for detail and excel at candid photography, capturing natural emotions. We have absolutely no complaints about what was delivered to us. Keep shining guys!
December 2016, Rome
Being Aussies getting married in a foreign land Josh and I were quite anxious about many things on our wedding day. Siobhan instantly put our worries at ease with her down to earth, vibrant and professional demeanour. The quality of our photos was more than we had imagined. Siobhan utilised all of our surroundings to capture the true essence of our special day and we are both truly grateful for her gift to us through her photos. Thank you, Siobhan, for your enthusiasm, passion and dedication to us on our most special day.
November 2016, Rome
Me (Georgios) with my wife Eleni, decided to do our wedding in Rome, regardless of that we are residents of Greece. We thought, that we would have to face many obstacles, including photography. We had never been before in Rome and we did not know anyone in that city, let alone a photographer. After some “googling” on the web, I found out that a photographer has already worked on a greek wedding in Rome, in the past. That photographer was Siobhan. I contacted Siobhan via e-mail and the response was immediate. From then on, everything was set up. I knew that I did not have anything to worry about concerning the photography of my wedding. Finally, my last belief came true. Everything was perfect. Siobhan met me at Greek Orthodox church (San Teodoro) in her time, and together we were waiting for the bride. She took many shots before and during the ceremony. Furthermore, after the ceremony, we had a small distance walk in Palatino Hill and we had many nice and beautiful shots there, too. Now, we are back in our home, in Greece and we recall the moments of our wedding through our photos, that Siobhan took. We want to truly thank Siobhan and her team for their professionalism, and we want to wish them to keep on with their great work.
October 2016, Frascati and Rome
We had the pleasure of having Siobhan be our photographer for our wedding day. She was so sweet and professional. We loved how she captured all the little details and moments throughout the day. All communication with both Siobhan and Conor was professional, clear, and timely, which made all the overseas planning part run very smoothly. The photos all came out great, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you, Siobhan, for everything!
March 2016, Rome
Siobhan is a photographer of great artistry with unique skills. She uses natural light in capturing authentic moments on your wedding day and the result is just stunning. Her work is not about just shooting classical wedding poses but rather creating a wedding story focusing on each and every detail such as your wedding dress, hand bouquet, guests etc. Keeping her professionalism, she is easy to be friends with which makes you feel relaxed and forget about posing at times. Expect to wait for a couple of weeks before receiving the photos, but it?s worth the pain. We are so happy with her work that we regret not having invested in a wedding video!
June 2016, Umbria
I found Siobhan online and after looking through her previous work knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. Both Siobhan and Conor were very friendly and helpful in the lead up to the event, and once she arrived, Siobhan was so professional. She worked tirelessly to capture the perfect shots, even standing out in the pouring rain to make the most of the light or to get the right angle – and the end results are stunning! We are so pleased with all the photos and can’t wait to show our friends and family. Thank you both for helping to make our wedding magical – you really captured our happiness and the energy of our special day.
July 2015, Rome
Siobhan took some absolutely beautiful photos which we will always treasure. It was great having someone who was Irish that we could relate to easily but who also knows Rome so well. She took us around some of the sites in Rome like the Spanish steps to take photos so they are really special. All our guests were really comfortable with her too! She also really helpfully organised a wedding car and driver (Tony) for the day as well as a coach to transport our guests to the reception. We wouldn?t have known where to start without her help. Thanks, Siobhan!
October 2015, Rome
Many thanks to Siobhan & Conor for the brilliant service. Siobhan was very discrete and fantastically captured some great moments of our day and thank you Conor for your professional service afterwards. The experience was great and photos wonderful. Thank you both for all the work you have done.
October 2015, Rome.
We found Siobhan after deciding to have photos taken on our first trip to Italy – these photos ultimately became our engagement photos. We chose Siobhan because of her eye for lighting and her candid approach. Before the session, Siobhan and Conor were in regular and prompt communication regarding the booking, and Siobhan was flexible in setting up the time and meeting location. We both loved her and we felt comfortable right away!! We received half a dozen “sneak peek” photos the very next day and ended up with almost 300 photos from two hours with Siobhan. I cannot express how special these photos are to us! Most of our travel photos are awkward “selfies” or are of only one of us – but these – these are beautiful in every way! When we go through them, it’s like we are reliving our time in Roma. Thank you, Siobhan, for a lovely afternoon strolling through Roma, and the beautiful photos that followed!
September 2015, Umbria
Siobhan is AMAZING! We were planning our wedding in Umbria from Chicago so we were a little nervous but Conor and Siobhan immediately put us at ease. They were responsive and easy to work with. Not being familiar with the area Siobhan made the recommendation of going to nearby Montone for pictures and they were beautiful. She’s so fun and captured so many amazing shots throughout the day. I would recommend her to anyone getting married in Italy. Thank you, Siobhan, for being such a big part of our day!
September 2015, Umbria
We booked Siobhan Hegarty after reviewing her work on her blog and website. We loved her candid style and knew she would capture what we were looking for. When it came to the day of our wedding, we were so happy to have her! She gave our rowdy little crew direction to get stunning shots and truly captured the essence of our easy-going nature with one another, and all the love we share with our families. Siobhan was so lovely to work with and helped to keep our day calm and relaxed. We would highly recommend Siobhan to anyone looking for a professional photographer, she is an absolute joy to work with. Thank you, Siobhan!
May 2015, Montignano Umbria.
Getting married abroad was always going to have its challenges. We are so happy we found Siobhan to be our photographer for our wedding day. Made it so easy to capture all those special moments and knew the best shots and how to get the best smiles from everyone. Would highly recommend to anyone getting married in Italy.
May 2015, Montone, Umbria.
Having Siobhan with us on our wedding day was a wonderful experience and we are so glad that we made the decision to work with her. After looking at the photos on her website while planning our wedding, it really wasn’t a hard decision to make! As most people might imagine though, it can be a little nerve-wracking meeting your photographer for the first time ever, on the day of your wedding; however, upon meeting her that morning, we felt an immediate sense of calm and trust. She arrived and immediately felt like an old friend, getting right to work; taking photos of us getting ready, and little details that I may have overlooked (shoes, photos of the dress, photos of the venue, photos of the guests) that we are forever grateful to have. She was incredibly patient throughout the day, having to wrangle our family and friends for photos and having to rework her schedule, due to our schedule changing throughout the day because of the weather. We were also so grateful that she was willing to take our photo ideas and work them into her plan for the day as much as possible. Moreover, how she managed to get SO MANY photos without getting in the way or causing a distraction is amazing! We were so impressed. We’ve been to weddings in the past where the photographer is in the way of the guests and all over the place, but we didn’t feel this way with Siobhan. She was so pleasant to work with. Getting the photos in the mail on a nice USB with a beautiful handmade card was such a lovely touch, and was an exciting thing to receive! We continue to look at the photos every day and can’t get enough of them! Thank you for spending your day with us and for giving us a beautiful way to relive the memories of our wedding day. I still tear up every time I look at them. Thank you, Siobhan, Grazie Mille! xo

Choosing a photographer can be a daunting decision as the pictures will last a lifetime but we both are so happy to have entrusted Siobhan with the job. After getting engaged in May 2014 at home in Ireland, we decided to get married in Rome and one of our first thing to do was to decide on who to capture the big day for us. After reading other testimonials and researching online, we found shpfoto.com and were instantly blown away by the images on display, through the website. So we immediately sent a request to see if there was availability! Siobhan, in turn, helped us organise an Irish Hairdresser and Florist so soon enough we had a whole team behind us. On the big day- Siobhan herself was everything we could have wanted. punctual, friendly, helpful, discreet, patient, kind and, of course, oh so professional. She seamlessly worked behind the scenes to photograph every moment! We could not have been happier with the entire service and package, from our initial to final contact and would highly recommend Siobhan and Conor to place your trust in!

Many thanks to Siobhan and Conor. We were very moved the moment we saw the photos, which are gorgeous, and especially good in composition. On May 2nd, Siobhan came to the hotel to meet us on time, then we started the 4hr tour of street snaps, from Pantheon to Saint Peter’s Basilica, finally ended in Colosseum. With her camera, Siobhan recorded more than 300 romantic moments, which are beautiful and exciting to us. The service provided by Siobhan Hegarty Photography are considerate and professional, we are willing to recommend to our friends, and share our happiness as well as photos online. Thanks again to Siobhan Hegarty Photography, for their hard work and enthusiasm, so we can have a lifelong graphical memory of a dreamlike time in Rome forever.
May 2015, Cortona Tuscany.
In our search for a wedding photographer in Cortona, we found Siobhan’s website. We were directly enthusiastic about her photos of the several wedding galleries, so we decided to make contact with her. Siobhan and Conor did inform us quickly and clearly and they gave us useful information to plan our wedding day. Siobhan arrived plenty of time before departure to Cortona at our rental house and gone her way to make several pictures of the preparation of some nice details in and around the house. She made with her pictures a very nice impression of the ceremony and afterwards in the city of Cortona she took us away from the busy streets of Cortona to take special pictures with the details we like at the Italian streets. At our lunch location at the Trasimeno lake, Siobhan took also several nice pictures with the views of the lake and of our family and friends. Yesterday we received the link with the photo impressions of our special day and we are very happy with them, now we can’t wait to receive our album and USB stick. Siobhan, we would like to thank you for making the very nice pictures of our special day, you made a very good job and with your reportage, we can look back at a special day in Cortona and the surrounding area. Saluti da Olanda.
February 2015, Rome
The planning for our wedding day in Rome was surprisingly straightforward with Siobhan and others offering expertise and advice on those essential wedding day items. Siobhan arrived 40 minutes before the wedding to snap a few shots at the hotel before travelling with us to the ceremony and finishing off in several locations around Rome. The finished product was truly beautiful and I am so happy to have chosen Siobhan to take the photographs on our wedding day. Siobhan snapped away capturing both candid and group shots with family and friends. Thank you, Siobhan, for your professional service and beautiful photographs. I would highly recommend Siobhan Hegarty Photography to others.
December 2014, Rome.
We had booked our wedding ceremony in Rome for 12 Dec 2014 and since we were coming from Turkey we had agreed to book Siobhan based on all positive feedback we could found on the web forums. Siobhan had approached our questions and expectations with great care even since initial conversations and on the planning. It was all planned and scheduled before our arrival in Italy. She arrived at our hotel just on time with the driver we had kindly asked (Tony). He was a very professional guy and real Italian gentlemen as well. Siobhan started taking some photos on the hotel as we had planned and then spend a couple of hours on the perfect spots of ancient Rome which ended up on the Turkish Embassy for the ceremony. Although we had never had a professional photographer experience so far, Siobhan did her job perfectly well so we were really quite comfortable during the shoots and never got nervous or excited any time which made us enjoy this magical day and ended up with those great and natural photos from all over the place. I think that’s all it matters. We are also very happy with the “after-service” experience that we have accessed the photos from a lovely website also just in a couple of days time and shared this with our families and friends very easily so everyone could see all the pictures. Also, we have received the original photos in a very nice USB afterwards to take print-outs. I would like to thank with this great and professional service as well. I am more than comfortable on suggesting Siobhan and SHPFoto for any special events in Italy if you’re seeking for a warm, friendly photographer and a real professional.
September 2014, Roma.
Dear Siobhan, The minute we saw your portfolios on your website we knew you were the right photographer for us. We were so thrilled that you were available for our big day in September! You made us feel very comfortable and relaxed, and the pictures are just stunning. You really captured us and our love just the way we wanted, and the photo session at the beautiful Piazza Navona will always be one of our most wonderful and exciting memories! Wish we could do it all over again! You are an amazing photographer and a wonderful person, we are so happy we found you. We would also like to thank the lovely Louise Faulkner for my beautiful bridal hair, you are both highly recommended amongst all of our friends! Love, Emelie & Magnus

I cannot thank Siobhan enough for the beautiful pictures she captured for my surprise proposal/engagement. Siobhan and I planned in advance and the proposal was orchestrated perfectly – much to Jessica’s surprise. All of our communication was clear and understandable. Siobhan ensured me everything would work out and kept in continuous contact throughout the months leading up to our Italy trip to take the time to entertain all questions, suggestions and comments. She even proposed some of her own ideas and sent me sample pictures for alternative ideas. Siobhan seemed genuinely happy and excited to take our pictures and made us feel very comfortable. Our families and we are extremely thankful for the pictures and we would recommend Siobhan to anyone looking to book a photographer in Rome.

Rome, July 2014
We are very satisfied with the photographer and all the wonderful pictures she took. Getting married in Rome is just fantastic. After the wedding in a little romantic chapel south of the centre of Rome, we drove to some of the famous sights like Colosseum and Piazza Navona. Siobhan told us what to do and where to stay. She was very eager in duty and a fantastic person. After two hours our session was ended, we thought, but Siobhan would like to take some pictures at our hotel, so we didn’t mind. She drove with us to the hotel and another hour with the shooting was going on. We are extremely satisfied with her hospitality and the good pictures she took of us. Thank you so much!!
Rome, July 2014
Hi Siobhan, thank you for the fantastic job, we absolutely love the outcome of the photos! Thank you for always being there when we had queries before flying into Rome, communicating with you is really a breeze. We enjoyed the photo-shoot as you brought us to places we never would have ventured to otherwise. You managed to capture the light really well, and the effect of the photos was absolutely what we wanted. Our family and friends think the photos are beautiful too. Guess all the perspiration on that hot summer day was absolutely worth it!???Hope you are doing great and thanks for everything!!
