Lesley and Matthew - Tollymore Forest Engagement

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...

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...

Alex from The Full Shilling - Armagh Blogger Shoot

Here at Perfect Opening Line we're not all about weddings and engagements all of the time (much as I LOVE them), sometimes we also get to show some blogger love.

This was a shoot last year with Alex from The Full Shilling (you should totally check out her blog).  Can't believe I'm only getting round to blogging this now!

We got such an amazingly sunny day on an Apple Orchard in Loughgall and in my opinion we could be somewhere in Spain looking at some of the photos.

Hope you enjoy! And if any bloggers are looking for photography for their website I'd love to collaborate.
