WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER NORTHERN IRELAND
Hello there! Bonjour! Howdy!
If you’ve made it here, chances are you’re getting married. Congratulations, you guys are obviously pretty fond of each other. I’m a Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer based in Belfast, but shooting loved up faces and places across this blue orb.
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 “stand there and give me some jazz hands/blue steel/selective colour” wedding photographer. If you’re not keen on having a wedding photographer take over the show with an endless list of posed shots that makes you question your tolerance for lactose, you’re in safe hands. No cheese in sight. 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 rather than being whisked off for what feels like an eternity. 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 perfectly 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, THE DRESS AND THE OTHER DETAILS TOO. BUT I CAN VENTURE A GUESS THAT THOSE WON’T BE THE PHOTOS YOU’LL KEEP COMING BACK TO IN 5, 10 OR 30 YEARS TIME.
INSTEAD, I WANT TO GIVE YOU IMAGES THAT SHOW 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.
Public service announcement : I have limited availability for 2020 and 2021. I am often booked up to 2 years in advance. We only take on a limited number of weddings each year in order to do justice to your story. Also, because it takes a long ass time to do said justice and because locking myself away in the editing cave for 18 hours a day would be bad for the vitamin D stores and my own marriage.
You wont find any cookie cutter formula’s here. Each wedding is different and each moment, whether unexpected, loud, tender, quiet, chaotic, or downright weird deserves to be pulled into focus. I personally edit each and every single image in order to create images that stand the test of time.
90% of the day is captured exactly how it would unfold as if I weren’t there while there other 10% of the day is devoted to portraiture and family photos. Because even though you probably don’t like being in front of the camera, it’s important to capture you both in all your bad-assery. Enough waffle from me, go dig into some of the splendid stories below and if you can picture yourself in them, and don’t have a thing against gingers, then give me a shout. Or don’t, you’re your own person, you do you!
