What a gifted, professional lady – we cannot recommend Siobhan enough
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.

She took all the photos without any stress and it was great to not have to worry about anything
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

Siobhan captured our wedding perfectly
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.

So happy we decided to do them!
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!

She melted right into our group
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 melted 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.

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!!

Our ceremony photos from Siobhan are so beautiful
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.

On the morning of the wedding and put us all at ease
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

She is very kind and was so helpful on the morning of my wedding
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.

Siobhan was absolutely fantastic!
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.

The experience was just wonderful
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.

She is really the easiest person to work with
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.

Siobhan was fantastic on the day of the wedding
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.

Siobhan had good ideas and suggestions
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.

To say we are beyond pleased is an understatement
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.

I couldn’t have done it without her advise!
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!

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.

I particularly like her use of light
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!

We want to truly thank Siobhan and her team for their professionalism
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.

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!

She worked tirelessly to capture the perfect shots
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.

It was great having someone who was Irish that we could relate to
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!

We loved her candid style
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!

She was incredibly patient throughout the day
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

On the big day, Siobhan herself was everything we could have wanted
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!

We were very moved the moment we saw the photos
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.

You made us feel very comfortable and relaxed
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 am so happy to have chosen Siobhan to take the photographs
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.

Our families and we are extremely thankful for the pictures
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.
