A Little Bit About Me

Hi! My name is Siobhán pronounced shiv-awn, for anyone who hasn't heard the name before it's one of those many Irish names that does not sound anything like how its spelled! I am a photographer based in New York and Puerto Rico. I have a love and passion for everything creative, especially art and photography. At home my dog Duke is often on the other side of my camera and has perfected the dreamboat look but when its not him I'm photographing I love capturing real moments with couples and my clients at universities and schools.

What is your wedding photography background?

 

I assisted a wedding company in Ireland while I studied there in 2012. I then worked over 30 weddings with a company located in Long Island, NY in 2017. Since then I have had the privilege of working with my own clients on their special day. 

How much do you charge?

 

Prices vary depending on the project and what it includes, especially comparing weddings and higher education. Weddings have print costs, assistants and second shooters just to name a few aspects involved while higher ed shoots may not include print products but could have other factors to take into account. In general a full wedding day package starts at $3,000. Hourly rates start at $250/hr.

Yes! I am fully insured and my business is an LLC. If your venue needs documentation I can provide it.
