Lesley and Matthew - Tollymore Forest Engagement

Take two teachers from good aul Norn Iron who have never met, send them to live in England where they teach at the same school and let fate do the rest.

Funny how sometimes it takes leaving home only to find a slice of it somewhere else. Anyways, enough of the eughy-gooey sentiment from me.

All I can say is I had a blast scampering about the forest getting experimental with the light with Lesley and Matthew for company before heading to Newcastle Promenade in search of jellyfish and an icy feet dip.

I'd love to know what you think...

Aisling and Dave - Oxford Island Engagement

I work with a lot of couples and I have to say that not very many of them relish the thought of being in front of the camera. Aisling and Dave were no exception but I like to think of it as my mission in life to make my gorgeous clients love themselves and have a little fun along the way.

Engagement shoots are the perfect opportunity to get a bit silly, loosen up and maybe embarrass ourselves a little (trust me, I embarrass myself more than anyone). In the end all I can hope for is that we had fun and have a great portfolio to prove it.

Aisling and Dave, it was my pleasure and here's to more piggybacks on wedding day!!!

Stacey and Robert - Belfast Wedding

Stacey and Robert had bought the house, had two children (a girl and a boy) and all that was left to do for them was make it official and I was honoured to be asked to photograph their wedding day. Here's a few snippets...

For The "Unbride" Bride Part 2 - Bridal Editorial Styled Shoot

For Part 2 of this Bridal Shoot for the alternative bride, I wanted a more ethereal feel. I love and am inspired by art and this shoot was very much influenced (if I'm honest subconsciously) by one of my favourite art eras - the Pre-Raphaelites.

Again the flowers were by Memento and the dress was actually one I already owned. I just imagine how the chiffon would move and flow with the water.

Apart from a canine photo bomber, this shoot turned out exactly how I wanted. Enjoy....

For The "Unbride" Bride Part 1 - Bridal Editorial Styled Shoot

As a wedding photographer here in Northern Ireland I have been lucky enough to see all types of brides from laidback boho to full on princess. But there is one thing that always stands out, all my brides want to be different but not all my brides want to go full on white wedding.

I used that as the inspiration for this 'unbride' bridal shoot. I got to style, do the makeup and photograph (it was a busy day!).

I was very lucky to collaborate with some great businesses here in the North. The wonderful guys from Memento florists on the Ormeau Road. Honestly, if you want someone to read you mind go here!

The outfit from this part of the styled shoot was from Marmalade in Ballymena. If I wasn't already excited for the shoot, Molly, from this quirky fashion boutique, had me revved up and ready to go such is her infectious enthusiasm.

Hope you like part one and keep your eyes peeled for the next instalment...
