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

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!!!

E+A | Lovely two day Dublin City Wedding | Medley Wedding Photographer

e&a_dublin_city_wedding_livia_figueiredo_525.JPG
Oh my god Livia these photos have us crying in the taxi from the airport to the hotel in Barcelona! Thank you so much we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day (and photographer!) Thanks so much for all your fantastic work over the 2 days! You really went above and beyond and we couldn’t have pictured it all going any better than it did.
— Emma + Arran

Emma and Aran's was a 2 day wedding something that it's becoming more popular and I have to say I totally get why! Their first day had their closed ones in a intimate ceremony where they exchange loving vows and walked around Dublin City with me to take some amazing portraits of the two and the second day was a bigger reception with all the friends at Medley a private cool venue in Dublin City Centre. 

On the first day just at the beginning of the session at Merrion Square I asked the lovely ice cream man if we could invade his van for a few shots and I end up scoring some free ice cream for the couple (I should start advertising that too, I can see it now: "Cheeky photographer can get you some free food when possible"  my cheekiness didn't;t stop there and I managed to get these two inside the National Gallery of Ireland for their wedding portraits too! 

Free ice creams were far from the only cool thing on this wedding. To start Emma had her wedding dress custom made by Synan O'Mahony and after a quite a few tries they came up to something classically beautiful! To say Emma knew exactly what she wanted is an understatement and even the shoes she designed herself! 

Other things custom made was that Arran created an app for their own wedding! The app is for all the guests to share and view the images from the wedding and it was such a great idea!! On their second day at the reception at Medley they also have their custom logo put so saying that these two were big on making their day their own is saying the least! 

I could stay days here saying how lovely and warm and kind they are and also their family and friends were and how honour I've been to document their day, hope you all enjoy the images <3

G+P | Don't let it rain on your parade! | Rathsallagh House | Wedding Photographer

p+g_rathsallagh_house_wedding_livia_figueiredo_451.jpg
LIVIA!!!!

You have killed me, these are so amazing. I absolutely love what you managed to capture. Thanks so much for sending this over - we’re delighted.
— Gemma+Phil

I often get asked "Livia, what happens if it rains on our wedding day?" rain is one of couple's biggest fear when it comes to wedding but what I say, as a wedding photographer that seen it all, is: you are the one that makes your day special, not the weather!

When it rains on a wedding I'm shooting my main job is to make it something to be incorporated (that doesn't mean running in the rain, although that would be fun too!) but to find light, beauty and special moments regardless of the weather and this wedding I'm showing today it's an example of that. 

 Gemma and Phil had planned their day up t the smallest details (Gemma was fantastic and there was a impressive spreadsheet involved when we met!) but one think you can't really predict is Irish weather, but they didn't let a little rain be an obstacle and as you can see in the images there was no short of happy faces all around! 

One thing that they decided to do that it's having their first look and their couple's portraits before the ceremony, that I believe helped with the nerves and they were able to enjoy their reception with friends and family without rushing to have their photos!

If you are planning your wedding at Rathsallagh House there won't be any problem when it comes to lovely places for photos even with a little bit of rain! 

Hope you enjoy the images xx

D+ B | Smiles at Barberstown Castle| Wedding Photographer

barberstown_castle_wedding_photos_livia_figueiredo_448.jpg

Dave and Becky are that kind of couple that makes a photographer's life easy. They are beautiful, fun, smart and they are open to everything. 

When we met I knew instantly that we were going to be a good fit, we chat of how important it's to embrace and enjoy the day and to let all the stress of planning behind and you can definitely see that in the pictures. 

From the first moments at the getting ready part to the end while enjoying the dance floor at Barberstown Castle they were so in the moment and I highly recommend you take a moment to look at this fab wedding, specially if you are planning yours and want to get inspired (not only by the beautiful venue and all) but by this couple just awesome attitude and vibes.  

Hope you all like it x

Preview - A+S - Sunny Temple House Wedding- Sligo, Ireland.

Yesterday's wedding was just so good! When they told me they were looking to have an outdoor ceremony in Ireland the first thing I asked was: do you have a plan B? I know that sounds pessimist but being a wedding photographer in Ireland you have that fear of raining built in your system! LOL. 

Luck enough the weather was just beautiful throughout the day and we were able to take some awesome shots and have some awesome ice cream :) 

Here are a few pics containing awesome couples, large and epic bridal party and lots of sun. Hope you enjoy!
