Edinburgh Vacation Photographer
I’m an experienced portrait photographer based in the city and have been practising vacation photography here for many years now. I’ve lived in Edinburgh myself since 2005, so I know all the best locations for photography in the city centre and beyond.
My considerable experience in offering vacation photography services means that I’ve photographed couples and families at the city’s iconic landmarks many times.
Each photoshoot is completely different from the next though, and I pride myself in always creating something unique each time. Making the photoshoot personalised to you, and completely tailored to your requirements is important to me.
Just as no two couples or families are the same, no two photoshoots are ever the same! I can also take you to some lesser-known locations during your photoshoot. That’s one of the many advantages of choosing me as your personal vacation photographer. I’ll take you to places off the beaten path which offer fantastic views of Edinburgh and the beautiful countryside that’s nearby.
“ My family and I vacationed in Scotland (we are from the US) and we booked Armands to do our family photos. I can’t say enough good things about our experience with him.From the moment we met he was very warm and welcoming. He took us all over Edinburgh and showed us sights we wouldn’t have otherwise known to see all throughout our session. He was such a joy. His humor made us relax and he was able to achieve some very genuine smiles out of my teenagers (which is difficult to do).
We had a little bit of rain, but we were prepared with proper rain gear and hats. It’s Scotland you have to expect some rain.He was extremely professional and had our photos done before we even made it home. We absolutely LOVE them. We have amazing photos that showcase our wonderful visit to Scotland. I highly recommend him if you are traveling to Scotland or are from there. You will not be disappointed.”

An overview of how the vacation photography process works
If you’re wondering what’s involved in a vacation photography shoot, here’s the short answer:
1. We decide which places you’d like to visit for photographs in Edinburgh
2. I calculate how long it will take to do this and plan out the schedule for the day
3. You pay a deposit to secure the date of your choice in my diary
4. We do more planning depending on the locations you’ve chosen (For example, we may need to hire a car, get permissions for certain locations, purchase tickets etc.)
5. You arrive at the pre-agreed date and time, and we complete the session
6. You pay the remaining balance for the photography package
7. Your images are delivered to you via a private online gallery
8. You choose to purchase beautiful prints or order a leather-bound keepsake album from me to preserve these beautiful memories.

Common questions about hiring a vacation photographer
Mainly I am hired to photograph couples who are visiting the city either on a short break or who are celebrating an engagement or special occasion of some kind. But I also love it when families and groups of people arrive here and want some beautiful family portraits taken during their time in Edinburgh.
I am a dad of three myself and love kids of all ages! I would love to meet your kids as well and to take portraits of you and them that capture your personalities and special family bond.
If you’re planning a trip here with children and want to arrange family vacation photography, we can get beautiful portraits of you and the kids at popular locations such as Calton Hill, The Royal Mile, The Botanic Gardens and Portobello beach, for example.

These guys travelled to me from Germany. Their main goal was to get all kids together and make beautiful family portraits while on vacation in Edinburgh. After the session they wanted to visit my studio and see my albums. Now they have beautiful leather bound album. We took portraits on Calton Hill and went to Arthurs seat too.
