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
Esther and Tomas were the most easy going couple I ever met in a way you always dream your clients to be (well, if you are a wedding photographer). Their intimate wedding at Ballilogue (a fairly new venue for weddings that it's just the cutest!) was what I believe weddings are about: love, loved ones and lots and lots of joy!
On their wedding day there was rain (just a little - the sun came right back and gave us a beautiful golden hour towards the end of the day) but even if it had rained all day it wouldn't really made a difference because as you can see in the images there was not one person that wasn't beaming with happiness and I felt such an immense pleasure to be a part of such a lovely day.
What I say to you, if you recently got in engaged is this: planning a wedding and making all those decisions can be tough but do it light handed, take your time and make sure to enjoy the process because when you take the time to enjoy your day (one that you've been planning for so long and that goes so quickly) the memories you will have forever are priceless and I know that when they look at their images they can re live all the happiness of that day once more!
This wedding was very special because I actually shot the groom's sister wedding before and I knew that they were just great people and to be honest by the end of the day I was certain that not only the groom's family was great but the bride's one as well!
The day was surrounded with laughs and love and I'm dying to share more, specially on our couple portraits at the great surroundings on the Wineport Lodge.
The Shelbourne Hotel is one of the best hotels in the country and also a staple when it comes to classic weddings. In the middle of the city, it's just a perfect location forhttp://www.shelbourneweddings.ie and this is a little preview for this mature wedding where they kept it minimal but extremely elegant!
More photos to come :)
This wedding was just the dream that we see on Pinterest! The couple was the most relaxed and up for photos, I actually never had so many amazing options for couples photos like in this wedding, I just cannot wait to share it!!!! The grounds in Ballilogue was just perfect!
