WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER NORTHERN IRELAND


 

Hello there! If you’ve made it here, chances are you’re getting married. Congratulations, you guys obviously like each other a wee bit. I’m a Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer based in Belfast. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say if you’ve found your way to our little digital space, then you’re probably not after a traditional wedding photographer. If you’re not keen on having a wedding photographer take over the show with an endless list of posed shots and all that jazz, you’ve came to the right place. It doesn’t matter whether you’re having a humanist wedding, church wedding, city hall wedding or eloping on the side of a cliff, I shoot love in all its forms.


You want to remember your wedding for exactly how it felt. You want to actually spend the time on the day having the craic with all of those people you love. That’s where I come in. No contrived images or series of posed shots. Just the true record and all the raw emotions of your day in all of its perfect imperfect glory, through natural, honest and creative imagery. No shot lists required, just the trust of two loved up souls surrounded by those that build them up and their wider community of party people that know what’s important. If you give me that, I’ll give you something to cherish for years to come.. (and hugs, I’m a hugger too)


MY COUPLES AND THEIR FAMILIES & FRIENDS ARE WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO ME. SURE I’LL CAPTURE THE PRETTY THINGS LIKE THE FLOWERS AND THE DRESS TOO. BUT I CAN BET THOSE WON’T BE THE PHOTOS YOU’LL KEEP COMING BACK TO IN TEN OR TWENTY YEARS TIME. IT’S ALL ABOUT WHAT MAKES YOU, UNIQUELY YOU. AND THAT’S WHY I LOVE SHOOTING WEDDINGS. THE MOMENTS YOU MISSED BECAUSE THE DAY GOES BY IN A BEAUTIFUL BLUR AND THE TIME SPENT WITH THOSE YOU LOVED. THOSE ARE THE IMAGES I WANT TO MAKE FOR YOU.

Why we'll get along?
1. You value stories over things. The wedding details + portraits are great, but as your wedding photographer - I value the time you spend with those you love above all else. I want to capture all the realness. No contrived images or series of posed shots. Just the raw emotions of your day through natural, honest & creative imagery.

2. You’re not afraid of risks. Whether that means taking a risk in your fashion choices, your venue, eloping in the middle of nowhere, or just open to creative direction of your wedding photography. Some rules are just meant to be broken.

3. You are free-spirited and trusting. You are always up for an adventure, you aren't afraid to get the party started and you don't hold back on showing your emotions. Oh, and it doesn't hurt if you're an animal lover!

A truly lovely soul & talented artist. I wish I could add another 5 Stars onto this review but I’m afraid even 10 wouldn’t do Chris justice. This guys talent is boundless, when we booked our wedding venue last year he was the 1st person we called because nobody captures a moment quite like him. Our wedding pictures absolutely blew us away, he captured all the small little details so perfectly and seemed to be able to harness the whole energy of the day in the most staggeringly beautiful and creative images.

If you’re looking for a completely unobtrusive photographer to document your day in a way that’s totally unique then look no further. He seems to be able to find the beauty in absolutely everything. Aside from his incredible work Chris is also a complete gentleman, he had us relaxed and smiling from morning to night and all our guest fell in love with him.

We honestly can’t describe how hard we found it to begin writing this review. It is pretty much impossible to capture Chris’ talent in words. Chris is possibly the most passionate and talented person we know, this man is an expert in his trade! We had Chris at our wedding in Italy this year and it was probably the best decision we made in the whole planning process.

Not being a camera loving couple, we were honestly dreading the portrait session but Chris is so chilled and genuinely cool that it ended up being one of our favourite parts of the whole day! He is so unobtrusive in his approach that you barely even notice he is there half of the time but the incredible details he manages to pick out are phenomenal and he is so genuine and fun-loving that you are bound to have a good time while creating them!

We're quite frankly blown away. The images Chris manages to create are incredible and we have lost count of the amount of comments people have made about how they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen!

Chris really captures the spirit of the day in a way which is difficult to put into words. In addition, Chris has a unique energy which he brings to the whole process; the excitement he creates in the build up to your samples will have you reliving your wedding day all over again…in fact the only issue we have experienced is the fact that we don’t have enough wall space in our house to display his fantastic work!

Rome Wedding Photographer

Emma + Johnny, Il Borgo, Rome

Chris has been absolutely incredible to work with from start to finish; we have nothing but love and good things to say about him and his work. He was so accommodating from the start, answering all our questions and giving us advice as we were planning our wedding in Ireland abroad from Canada. Chris was incredibly personable, like we were just hangin' out with an old friend and made us feel super comfortable and relaxed the entire day - even when he had to calm down a local farmer who was giving us an earful the day of the wedding! He is SO talented and captured our day and all the little moments perfectly, and also delivered our full gallery to us ahead of schedule. We are so thankful to him and will cherish these photos and memories forever!!

Mel + Dustin, Cliffs of Moher elopement

Chris was more than just a photographer for us, he was our knight in shining armour!! Due to a number of factors, and an unfortunate car accident, Chris came to our rescue just 3 weeks before our wedding day. They say everything happens for a reason, Chris – I think you were our reason!! We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful wedding album, or a nicer person to have with us on the day.

Your relaxed, positive & professional attitude made us feel completely at ease. You certainly lived up to your ‘moustached fly-on-the-wall’ persona! We never felt like we were being followed, or that we had a camera nearby, yet you managed to capture every moment (and the atmosphere) so beautifully. Chris, thank you so much for being a part of our story and producing what can only be described as the best wedding album ever.

If you’re looking for a wedding photographer who is a great guy, with great skill and the professional charm to make you feel completely at ease on the day then Chris is your man. We cannot recommend him enough.

Forever grateful!!

Kilshane House Wedding

Fiona + Donal, Kilshane House

Chris is a beautiful man and a warm, approachable and importantly, talented photographer. We organised our Irish wedding from Melbourne and randomly found him, inspired by his natural and subtle look.

He is fantastic to work with, really wanting to meet and get a feel for who you are and what you want in the months leading up. We got along famously with him and are continually impressed by his communication, personality and the quality of his care. On the day I, as a no fuss groom, couldn’t have asked for a better (subtle, warm, relaxed but astute) presence. Our family and friends felt exactly the same. Really impressed with his overall work, communication and nature.

We are still in communication with him and are still delighted with the shots he captured on our special day. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Good bloke, top artist, smooth operator.

Jo + Dave, Australian / Irish wedding

Chris we wouldn’t have anyone else in the world to capture our wedding, you’re a true friend and I am in awe of your work EVERY day! We are so DE-LiGHteD with our incredible photographs, you smashed it!! We’re still giggling at your multi skills in Life Church, making your way through the crowds with a pint of Guinness in one hand and papping that epic dance floor action at the same time! Legend!!

Chris is an absolute wizard at photography and an all round super guy. He photographed our wedding in Portugal and did an amazing job. He's a real chill guy who puts you right at ease in front of the camera, just makes it feel like you're hanging out with a good mate and yet he manages to capture all the special moments so beautifully. 10/10 would recommend

Katy + Ronan, Lisbon Wedding

I have worked with Chris on serval occasions and each and every occasion has been more than a photo shoot, Chris comfortably blends professional photographer with fun and friendly, which for new people getting in front of the camera is very important.... we love Chris so much we are flying him to BALI to have him shoot our wedding we believe his take and eye captures what exactly we look for in a photograph. His work moves you even if you’ve no attachment to those within the images the sense of feel is extraordinary.

We booked Chris for our wedding at Harvey’s Point in Donegal in October 2018. We both work in the wedding industry (doing wedding photography and videography) so we wanted a really high standard in our wedding photos. We met Chris for the first time in Rome and filmed a wedding alongside him there and we were impressed by his eye for detail and emotion, his capturing of things that others might miss and his passion for his job. He was the first supplier we booked for our day. We absolutely love the quality of photos he got for us. It’s not just how they look, it’s the feel of them. His images and the way he shoots captured the feeling of the day and how Donegal felt on a foggy October afternoon. As well as magical double exposures, he got so many great shots of family and friends too. We couldn’t be happier and we absolutely love the photos.

Abby + Matt, Donegal Wedding

Chris was the photographer for our wedding in September 17, and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

Chris came over to London and we did an engagement session with him the year before the wedding. Neither of us are naturals in front of the camera and we would highly recommend this to anyone who may be camera shy! Chris is such a laid back and genuine guy that we couldn't help but feel instantly at ease with him, so walking around London with him getting photographs just felt like taking a walk with a mate.

On the big day itself Chris was a really comforting and calming presence. He mainly just blended into the background of all the excitement and chaos, yet managed to capture all the tiny details. Chris has an ability to capture candid shots as well as making the more posed pictures look very natural. Our more formal portrait sessions were full of laughs and therefore very relaxed, and the photographs he produced were just stunning, we couldn't be happier with them. He is also very collaborative about the different settings for pictures on the day, and will use his experience and creativity to make plenty of suggestions for capturing some really special shots.

We can't thank him enough. Orla and Stephen x

Amazing guy and an amazing photographer. Chris was with us for our wedding in Valley of Fire, Nevada. Our pictures capture the day perfectly, all the small moments and memories. We couldn't have dreamed of better. We will literally treasure our pictures. I wish I could give more than five stars ✨
