Livia thank you so much! You are absolutely amazing on the day and these pictures show just how talented and how much fun we had.
Thank you so so much we loved having you with us to capture every moment of the day
— Ciara + Dave

When I chatted with Ciara about her and Dave’s wedding day she said the most joyful combination of words I photographer can hear: “I trust you, let’s have cool pictures and have fun” and, OMG we had fun!

As I said several times I just love shooting at Bellinter House and if you are considering them for your wedding venue, I would say you will be spoiled for choices when it comes to photos!

All that Ciara and Dave wanted it was to be a fun day and not take themselves super serious so we decided to recreate what now it’s becoming a classic shot for me, the bathroom photos in Bellinter, and that was just one of the many awesome and alternative spots we got to shoot and if you are having a cool bridal party like they had, nothing more epic than this group shot.

We also got the most amazing golden hour and went to a nearby rapeseed field for some photos and wait until you see the rest. When planning your wedding also allocate some time for a few adventures, they are usually the most fun shots.

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!!!

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

S+E | Fabulous Bellinter House Wedding Photographer - Preview

s+e_bellinter_house_wedding_photographer.jpg

I knew this would be an amazing wedding from when I receive their email in my inbox. Sarah and Eoghan had a clear vision and when I went down to Galway for our engagement session I knew that not only they were just the nicest people they put so much effort to make their wedding one of a kind.

One of the requests they had for me on the day of the wedding was to have an epic Vanity Fair/Magazine Cover photo in the award winning bathroom at Bellinter and oh boy tI think we got it, right? Look at this bridal party! A-mazing!

I can't wait to share the rest of the images but I couldn't help myself to squeeze in before the 2017 ends a preview of their wedding photos in Bellinter House, which by the way is just such a fab venue! <3 

Thank you for trusting me and let me be part of such a fabulous day!

Stay and Couple's Session at Bellinter House - Ireland

This weekend I had the pleasure to stay at Bellinter House, which is a very well know wedding venue near Meath, Ireland.

Usually, as a wedding photographer I get to go to amazing wedding venues but the day goes by so fast and I never get the chance to enjoy the venue with time, so for Easter me and my partner had the chance (gifted to us from our lovely friends) to stay there and I have to say: such a lovely staff, comfortable beds and overall great experience! 

Even though I was taking the time to relax I made sure to snap a few shots and take a few pics with my partner, I said here before how important it's to have nice pictures of you as a couple and how I making a effort to document our story too and I hope you enjoy it.
