D+M- Dream two dresses, fireworks and camper van- Kilshane House Stunning Wedding - Wedding Photographer Dublin, Ireland

d&m_kilshane_house_wedding_photographer_tipperary_livia_figueiredo_555.jpg
Thank you Livia! Not sure if your superpowers extend to super hearing, because if so, you’d have heard the chorus of thanks and happiness from across 3+ timezones: from us in Canada, across Ireland, to Hong Kong, and then finally in Manila! We love the slideshow and our families across the globe love the pictures too. We really enjoy reliving the small moments you managed to capture (secretly!)!
— D+M

When I met these two that flew all way from Vancouver for our engagement session in the Farmleigh House I knew that I was in for a treat! They were so lovely and cute and filled with excitement for their day that I couldn’t wait for the big day!

They had their wedding in Kilshane House which is a fantastic luxury venue in Tipperary that every corner looking straight out of a dream, their orangery in particular is one of my faves, but other than a stunning venue, Kilshane House has another great feature that it’s the reason why I get so excited when I shoot there: they have two adorable pugs that the owners kindly allow me to hug and kiss when I go there!!! If you don’t know I have a slight obsession for pugs and tend to hug every pug I see, lol!

Back to the wedding, the day started and oh boy Daryll’s girl squad was just amazing! Such a lively group of ladies that were so keen to help (they were involved in a lot of details for the day, I heard) and we got to take some fun bridal party photos, the boys were maybe a tad less helpful but so fun to be around too!

From the church ceremony back to the venue we were quite blessed with the weather and we managed to take some beautiful portraits at Kilshane rain free, hooray! If you are having your wedding there, I highly recommend exploring the venue for portraits, there’s so much option.

Fast forward to the night time when Daryll look stunning on her second dress and we get to see some a-mazing fireworks display! Can all weddings have fireworks, please? To finish off we got back inside for some awesome dancing, and when I say awesome, I mean it! Their friends and family were one of the most fun dance floors I seen all year!!!!

Hope you like the images as much as I do xx

nolita-fallon-and-byrne-dublin-city-wedding-livia-figueiredo.jpg

Last Saturday I was back again in Dublin City Centre for another Dublin City wedding in Fallon & Byrne (which is some of my favourite wedding venues for Dublin City Weddings)!

This time we were in a few spots in town, one of which I haven’t been before. Nolita is a bar located just on George St and the couple had their drinks reception there and I was so excited to have some photos inside because it looks STUNNING! Definitely want to go back there for a few more photos in the future, there’s so many cute corners!!

So here’s a preview from the photos, we had a great time going around town and even though it was super busy (Sattudays near Grafton Street can be challenging) we managed to get some cool photos :)

It's finally here, the Best Wedding Photos of 2018! - Dublin, Ireland Wedding Photographer

Press Play!

O.M.G. 2018 was one to remember! (Also, Happy Valentine’s Day!!!)

Like last year, I decided to celebrate the “most romantic day of the year” by celebrating the love, happiness and all in between that I was so blessed to capture last year.

Being a wedding photographer for me has allowed me to meet so many beautiful souls, get to see so many moments that will be forever favourites in someone’s life and I don’t take this for granted!

I’m so grateful that I get to call this a job, that I get to see human nature at its best where people share their love, tears and all that comes with it in the most honest way.

That’s the joy of weddings, it’s all about the people.

In a time where social media makes everything looks perfect and the same I get to see beauty in every shape and form and love being the common denominator to all that.

When I say to my couples: “it’s about about having fun and being in the moment”I really mean it and I think 2018 was the perfect example., just watch the video and you will understand why.

I hope you enjoy this images as much as I do.

To all my 2018 couples, I couldn’t have done without you! The way you allow me in and invited me to your day is what made last year unforgettable for me and for that I’m forever grateful.

To all future couples, I can’t wait to make 2019 even better ! Let’s have some fun!

Boho Wedding Alpacas Inspiration Shoot - Xposé - Station House - Ireland

boho_wedding_alpaca_xpose_station_house_livia_figueiredo_photography_13.jpg

A few weeks ago the lovely people from The Station House asked me to join them in a lovely shoot for the Xposé TV show where the wedding expert, Sarah from The Irish Wedding Blog was putting together a fab session with a boho inspired wedding dresses and the best part of it was not only we were surrounded by lovely dresses but they brought ALPACAS!!!!!

To be honest that sealed the deal for me when they invited to come along, I always wanted to meet them in person and check if they were as soft as I thought they were and THEY ARE SO SOFT!!!!

I made sure to hug them several times and I can assure if you decided to have alpacas for your wedding here in Ireland I’m the one you should choose to photograph it because me, Ted and Tom (the alpacas) are pretty much best friends for life now and I know all their best angles, lol!

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! 

Two day wedding at Dublin City Centre | Dublin Wedding Photographer, Ireland.

Geraldine&John_467.JPG

If you have been following me awhile you will know I'm a sucker for city weddings. Dublin City weddings are not easy but they are one of my favourite ones to shoot because the city is constantly changing ad there's so much to see and gladly Geraldine and John share my opinion and they wanted to showcase a few of the many beautiful corners of the city centre for their portraits. 

They had their ceremony at the University Church (which looks stunning!)  for the first day of the wedding then had to the Westbury for their drinks reception and finished off at The Residence for an intimate meal with their guests, the next day they had to Clontarf Castle where they party with a bunch of their friends and celebrated their wedding all over again! 

Here is some of the best images from the two days, hope you guys enjoy it I just had the best time shooting their wedding!
