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! 

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

alternative_wedding_tinakilly_house_liviafigueiredo_563.jpg

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

It truly made our day that much more memorable and amazing. I know for sure that Gio and I will always cherish our day venturing through the streets of Dublin with you”

They came all the way from California to Elope in Ireland , they wanted to capture the city in all its colours and shapes and all they said to me was: "We want to have fun, do whatever you think will look good!" Are this clients even real?

More and more I've been encountering couples that embrace their own style and not necessary do whatever is traditional if doesn't resonate with them and I just find that fab! Nothing wrong with traditional specially if that what you envisioned for your wedding but nothing better for you and your partner than doing what feels right and what represents you. 

Here's a sneak peek from their elopement and I will be sharing more soon, hope you like it!
