Chances are if you’ve made it this far, you guys kinda like each other…
Enough to think about getting all suited and booted, throwing down those savings (how much!?) and standing in front of your friends and families, spilling your hearts out and getting all gooey-eyed (yes, your MUA hates you now)
That’s where I come in. It doesn’t matter whether you’re eloping on the side of a mountain in Iceland or a registry office in London, my jam is creating honest and authentic images of you and your love. Yes you’ll have all the beautiful detail shots + family photos, but I set out to document your story, just the way it is. 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 imperfections through natural, honest and creative imagery. 90% of the day you’ll find me creeping around (figuratively speaking, don’t worry) doing the documentary thing and getting those incriminating shots of your bridesmaids and that Uncle while the other 10% is devoted to us working together on some creative portraiture.
I work with people who are as passionate as I am about creating honest and creative imagery and you can rest assured I’ll do everything I can to capture all those little quirks and in between moments that make you, you. But why believe a stranger who rocks a bad 80’s porn tache, listen to the fine folks below instead. Being given the creative freedom to capture that bond, while you are surrounded by the people that mean the most to you in the world, that’s something I do not take lightly. Here’s a quote from someone else that I’ll shamelessly use to make my point.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind
I love nothing more than to share in the stories of like minded couples from around the world. Based in Belfast, I split my time between Ireland and wherever else I’m invited. You can check out our travel schedule below, so if you’re not ginger-phobic and want to know more get in touch!
Where are you based?
We’re based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Technically, just outside of Belfast but we travel all over Ireland, Europe and internationally shooting weddings.
Oh, so you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! We love to travel and are always on the road. Check in with our travel schedule or get in touch for specific dates. Travel within a 100 mile radius of Belfast is included and outside of this there is a minimum mileage rate and any accommodation/flights if required. We always do our best to keep these costs to a minimum.
How long do you stay at our wedding?
Depending on which level of coverage you’ve chosen, I’m with you all day from the morning prep through to the evening speeches and dance floor mayhem. I couldn’t miss your favourite in-law pulling some serious shapes!
Have you shot at our venue before?
There’s nothing more that I love to do than explore new places and that goes for venues too. Shooting internationally, I’m always coming across exciting new locations and with that comes a chance to create something different. I find that it helps kick my creativity into overdrive. Rather than relying on the same spots or locations of a venue I’m looking at everything, the light, the location, the surroundings with a fresh pair of eyes and I’ve found this to be invaluable when it comes to capturing the intricacies of your day.
Are you insured?
Do you shoot same sex couples?
Did my time machine work? Of course I do, it’s 2018. Love is love people <3
Do you need a shot list?
Hell no! (Joking / not joking) They simply are not necessary if you trust me. As important as family formals are to a lot of our couples we’ve found that if they are kept to a minimum on the day this allows me more time to spend looking for those unscripted moments. The thing about a shot list is, in the end they actually can prevent us from capturing the authentic emotions of the day plus your cheeks end up hurting, like a lot.
How many photos will we receive?
While there is no limit to the amount of photos I take during the course of your day on average I’ll edit them down to around 500+ images that tell the story of your day from start to finish.
How and when will we receive our photos?
Typically 6-8 weeks after your wedding. When wedding season is in full swing this may be a little longer. But I’ll always give you a rough idea when we’re hugging it out at the end of the night! You’ll receive an online slideshow a few weeks after the wedding to whet you appetite and then your full gallery via a private password protected online gallery. Don’t worry, there’s no naff watermarks!
Can we print our photos?
Of course, you can print away until your hearts content! Or if you prefer to switch off after all the wedding planning we offer albums and some pretty snazzy prints too!
What is your pricing and how do we get started?
If you’re planning a wedding, elopement or destination wedding get in touch via our contact form here and we can send over all the deets and get the ball rolling. If you’re based locally, we can grab a coffee or if you’re based further afield we can arrange a skype session! Pricing for 2019 start from £1700 and bespoke quotes are available upon request.
