A+C - Tinakilly House Black Tie Wedding - Irish Wedding Photographer, Dublin - Ireland

Our photos are incredible and capture every single part of our day perfectly. You were so lovely to work with and knew exactly the images that needed to get. Some of our guests even referred to you as a ninja, always in the right spot to capture our special moments. We couldn’t have asked for better photos and a better person to spend the day with. Thank you so much for allowing us to relive all our special moments
— Aideen + Colin

Want to know how to have a black tie wedding and look incredible but also have the best time and have so much fun? Well, this is the wedding you can take inspo from!

Aideen and Colin first priority was to have a relaxed day where they could have the most fun with their friends and family and choosing to do everything at Tinakilly House (from getting ready up to their dancing) was for sure the right choice.

Often couples are faced with the decision of having everything on site or being in separate venues and although I understand why couples would like to have their wedding in a church, if you are not having one and choosing a fab venue and they can accommodate you two getting ready I would highly recommend! Is the easiest hassle free way to get the most out of your day and make sure you are not running around all day which mean more time to spend with your guests ! \o/

Hope you like the images and get some ideas of how to look amazing like these two without losing a minute of fun!

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

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

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

L&K_rock_of_cashel_cahir_castle_ireland_elopement_wedding_photographer_350.jpg
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 

Elope to Ireland | Dublin City | Woolen Mills | J+G Preview Wedding Photography Dublin

Livia, Omg! I shouted with joy when I saw these.
You truly have no idea how amazing a gift this is to us that you captured these images. We’ll never be able to thank you enough. I’m so glad that we had the privilege of working with you. 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!

Engagement shoot in the streets of Dublin City

When Kelsey contact me she said that she was looking for someone to photograph her and her fiancé Keith, they were coming from Texas and they were looking to have something fun to document their trip. 

A few days after our first chat, Keith contact me separately to ask a recommendation for a makeup artist/hairstylist (made by the talented Niamh) as a surprise for Kelsey and instantly I knew that photographing them would be great. What they end up telling me later that day it's that they were looking to use of the images for their save the date! 

We had a stroll around Dublin and after deciding to not spend so much time at Stephen's Green that it's always so packed with tourists they would be up for knowing a few less touristic spots. 

We finished our session in one of my favourite pubs in Dublin, Kehoes where they have one of the best Guinness in my opinion. 

Hope you enjoy this engagement photoshoot around Dublin.
