Are you looking for having engagement photos taken but hate the idea of doing them?

Do you love the city vibe and would love to do an engagement session in Dublin? Are you having a country side or beach wedding and would love to shoot something in the city? So you need to check this pre wedding shoot with these two cuties!

If you seen some of my work you know I work around Dublin City Centre quite a lot and this session is a good example of how we can find something cool and fun to do in Dublin and have some great photos.

A+D | Intimate Alternative Wedding in Tinakilly House | Wedding Photographer Ireland

Storm Emma is in full force outside so why not go back to lovely September and check this amazing intimate and alternative wedding in Tinakilly House

When they contacted me the first thing they said was: we LOVE photos! To be honest I'm not that used to hearing that so it definitely sparkled my attention. They said that they were having a very intimate wedding and that her family and a small group of friends were coming from America and their budget focus was to get cool, fun pictures of their day (that's why I freaking love my clients!) so on the day oh boy, these two delivered! 

They told me to be completely free and as creative as I wanted, we end up doing a first look (which is something that here in Ireland I don't see happing that much - but I absolutely love it) and we had a great time! 

We also split the couples portraits in two sections so at night we could do some more alternative ones and that also meant they could spend more time with their guests (which I'm all about)!. 

Some of my favourite moments was when one of the bridesmaids actually took the brides vows from her bra, so funny! The bridesmaids were actually fab and when the bride's wedding dress needed some last minute alteration (5 minutes before the ceremony) they came to the rescue and with scissors in hands they made it perfect!

I hope you enjoy this wedding, it's a representation of how many cool photos you can get when you let yourself be creative and to have fun on your day! (The night shots are one of my favourites I ever took!)

Best of 2017 - Ireland Documentary Wedding Photographer

PRESS PLAY!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day! What more perfect day to finally release my Best of 2017! 

2017 was such a important year in my career and it was one of my most intense ones as well, I met incredible people with some fantastic stories and together we created some of my favourites images so far. 

From outdoor ceremonies in the sun, confetti shots, two day bashes, Dublin City elopements, winter weddings full of style and everything in between, 2017 was the year where I was able to document couples that were several years together finally starting a new journey and it's just such a blessing, really. 

Being a photographer is not an easy job, I tell you. There's a constant weight (metaphorically and literally speaking - those cameras weight a ton, lol) of being the person who will document forever a spitting stone in two peoples lives and doing it in a respectful, creative and truthful way is not something that comes easily but I wouldn't do it in any other way. 

Can't wait to see what 2018 has reserved of all of us, but I have a hunch that is going to be even more amazing!

Hope you all enjoy the images xx

Elope in Ireland | Not even hurricane Ophelia could stop these two! | Rock of Cashel Ireland Elopement Wedding Photographer

Livia,

That day was so special and you helped make it that way. We have incredible ones to cherish the actual wedding day from you. Thank you so much. These are so beautiful. They made me cry my eyes out!
You not only took incredible photos os us, you really helped me through the stress of that morning and that lead to a fairytale kind of day with my husband <3
— Liz + Kevin

Liz found me through a photographer friend that shared my love for pugs (who knew pugs would get me new customers?! That's one more reason why pugs are the best, lol!) and we hit if off instantly! She decided to Elope in Ireland and wanted a wedding photographer that could capture their elopement the way they dreamed of and I couldn't be happier to have been a part of it! 

Then the Hurricane Ophelia came one day before their big day and we didn't give up! Although her makeup artist didn't show up I, who am slightly obsessed with makeup,  did my best to help out, but Liz was such a bad ass and took charge! Surprisingly the weather was lovely and full of sunshine and no fallen trees were in our way so the rest of the day went smooth. 

From their intimate ceremony in Cork just with their parents to stopping on the way while we drove back to Dublin we managed to capture some of the beauty Ireland has to offer like the ruins of the Rock of Cashel, which is just stunning! Please have a look through the end of this post and check how stunning those surrounding are!  

If you are thinking about eloping I say: be prepared for the things you can't predict, open your hearts and embrace the moment because it's magical and totally worth it!! 

Hope you all enjoy the images xx
