Boho Wedding Alpacas Inspiration Shoot - Xposé - Station House - Ireland

boho_wedding_alpaca_xpose_station_house_livia_figueiredo_photography_13.jpg

A few weeks ago the lovely people from The Station House asked me to join them in a lovely shoot for the Xposé TV show where the wedding expert, Sarah from The Irish Wedding Blog was putting together a fab session with a boho inspired wedding dresses and the best part of it was not only we were surrounded by lovely dresses but they brought ALPACAS!!!!!

To be honest that sealed the deal for me when they invited to come along, I always wanted to meet them in person and check if they were as soft as I thought they were and THEY ARE SO SOFT!!!!

I made sure to hug them several times and I can assure if you decided to have alpacas for your wedding here in Ireland I’m the one you should choose to photograph it because me, Ted and Tom (the alpacas) are pretty much best friends for life now and I know all their best angles, lol!

Hope you enjoy the images and make sure to check all the fab people that were involved in the links at the end of the gallery.

D+M - Engagement Session - Phoenix Park - Farmleigh House

D&M_engagement_preview_8.jpg

As everyone knows I’m a big believer on engagement sessions and this one in Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park is for sure one of my favourites!

If you are considering booking a wedding photographer for your wedding I highly recommend getting a trial like an engagement session first, I say to couples, “when you are buying your wedding cake you get to taste it first so why not with your wedding photos?”.

Wedding photos are the only thing (specially if you are not hiring a videographer) left from your wedding day and is so easy to get disappointed if you and the professional you chose are not the right fit!

Also, I’m pretty sure being in front of the camera is tough for anyone so why not try it out and see that at the end it can be fun?

This is what Mike and Daryll did, they took the time to meet me and we had such a fun day and on their wedding day they knew exactly what to do (wait until you see their full wedding, it was a dream!)

Hope you enjoy the photos x

S+E - Winter Wedding Perfection - Bellinter House Wedding Photographer, Ireland

s+e_bellinter_house_wedding_photographer_livia_figueiredo732.jpg
We knew Livia was special when we met her, but my
god she exceeded every expectation we had. We work with photographers a lot in our industry, so we had specific and high expectations for what we wanted our photos to be. We knew when she joined us in Galway for our engagement shoot that we had made the right choice in photographer. She is amazingly talented, listens to what you want, is extremely creative, and the way she captured the day was just superb. We didn’t want stuffy posed “weddingy” photos. We wanted photos that captured the sense of the day, our guests, and all the small special moments that would mean so much in the years to come. Livia did all of this beautifully and was so subtle in her approach on the day that half the time people didn’t even realise photos were being taken. She went so above and beyond on the day and post-wedding and the results were truly amazing.
— Sarah + Eoghan

This is for sure one of my most loved weddings I ever shot! There’s not one client that sees some of the pictures on my website and don’t tell me what a dream it is and I always says that they are definitely one to beat!

Sarah and Eoghan put so much time and effort to make their wedding to look exactly what they envisioned and there was so much of their personalities in every corner of Bellinter House, which by the way is one of my favourite wedding venues in Ireland, and you can definitely tell that when you look at the photos.

I hope you enjoy the photos and if you are planning a winter wedding this one is for sure one to take loads of inspiration from!!!

Engagement session at Guinness Storehouse - Dublin Wedding Photographer

I always dreamed on doing an engagement session at The Guinness Storehouse since moving to Ireland 7 years ago (time flies when you are having fun I guess!!) and I did had the opportunity to shoot several times in the Guinness Storehouse for commercial photography and every time I would see another corner I thought would be fun to have a couple for it! 

Finally I met these two and convinced them to let me go and let me explore and have fun there and oh boy I'm so happy with the result and I hope you like it too. 

I've been saying for a long time how I think engagement sessions are just so important and this year I've been making sure my couples have some awesome photographs to look back years from now and also to have fun while creating those memories. 

I really hope you guys enjoy it and if you want some cool pictures of you and your partner why not to think outside the box? Which place would be your dream location for a shoot? Let me know and let's make this happen! 

Two day wedding at Dublin City Centre | Dublin Wedding Photographer, Ireland.

Geraldine&John_467.JPG

If you have been following me awhile you will know I'm a sucker for city weddings. Dublin City weddings are not easy but they are one of my favourite ones to shoot because the city is constantly changing ad there's so much to see and gladly Geraldine and John share my opinion and they wanted to showcase a few of the many beautiful corners of the city centre for their portraits. 

They had their ceremony at the University Church (which looks stunning!)  for the first day of the wedding then had to the Westbury for their drinks reception and finished off at The Residence for an intimate meal with their guests, the next day they had to Clontarf Castle where they party with a bunch of their friends and celebrated their wedding all over again! 

Here is some of the best images from the two days, hope you guys enjoy it I just had the best time shooting their wedding!
