Our Edinburgh Innsider: Anna Urban

Anna Urban is a wedding and portrait photographer based in Edinburgh. She lives with her daughter in Leith, a popular district in the north part of the city. She’s often found hanging out at the seaside or exploring different quarters of the city in search of inspiration for her next photo shoots. She says she loves how Edinburgh mixes its rich and charming history with a cool and cosmopolitan vibe.

 

Her natural and alternative wedding photography has taken her to every corner of Scotland, so she knows a thing or two about life north of the border – and she’s proud to call Edinburgh home.
