Take some time to read through my approach and what to expect to see if we’re the right fit for each other. If we are a good fit, it means you to get the best possible experience, because the experience you have with your photographer strongly reflects how you feel about your photos later on.
I want us both to be jumping for joy about working together as that’s what you deserve from any photographer.
I try to give you timeless images that have captured real moments. We focus on creating together rather than just 'getting photos done'. I stress the importance of relaxation and movement because I make my best work for couples when they are comfortable. I love to capture the connection between you both. My main focus above all else is that my couples have a relaxed experience.
Connection & Trust means images that are true to you
I want photography to be more than something on your checklist of things to do for your wedding. You don’t realise it now while you’re focused on bridesmaids, who’s sitting where, and florals, but photography is really the only thing that lasts past your wedding day. Photographs are something that will only increase in value over time, as the images get passed down for generations and photos with family become precious.
You deserve to have a photographer that will make your day a priority. To get my package list please contact me and I'll send you a wedding brochure via email. Bespoke packages for multi day weddings are available.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you based?
I'm a Northern Irish Wedding and Elopement photographer most passionate about capturing moments here on the Emerald Isle of Ireland. I cover weddings in NI, Monaghan, Meath, WM, Louth, Kildare & Dublin. All enquires via the contact form.
I offer three main packages that include a range of bespoke items such as, prints and albums because your images deserve to be printed. Use the contact form to get in touch for packages.
What is your price?
Yes, you can upgrade at any time to another package before your wedding day. Just give me some notice.
Can I switch pagckages?
Yes and they are a beautiful must have heirloom piece to cherish. You can order an album directly from your online gallery after your wedding or choose a package that includes an album. You will choose a selection of images and I will design it. You'll be able to proof the layout. Parent size albums are available too.
Do you make wedding albums?
Every wedding I share with my couples is extremely important to me, I work with a limited number of couples each year. This means each wedding gets the best of me, not a tired run down version. I want to give you a relaxed experience on your day.
How many weddings do you take on per year?
I normally shoot anywhere along Causeway Coastal route, in beautiful parks and walled gardens too. I can give you a huge list of some pretty cool places for your shoot, but here is a small blog post to get you thinking. I plan to shoot when the light is best, usually sunrise or sunset.
Do couples travel to you for engagement shoots?
I require a retainer to secure your spot on my calendar, and the remaining balance of 2 x 50% is due 120 days and 30 days in advance for weddings, 60 days in advance for other shoots. You can split these payments if you’d like. I’m happy to work with your schedule.
What about payment?
I have a faster turnaround time than most photographers! The turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays. Typically, for sessions it takes 3 weeks or less and weddings take 6 weeks or less. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs. If you don't want to wait, I offer a 'rush' edit service too, get your images within days.
When & how will we receive our photos?
I love traveling and visiting new places, a few times a year for work. I love planning and researching where would be beautiful to shoot. Get in touch for a custom quote if you're outside of NI. There are brand new places waiting to be explored, get in touch. The Isle of Skye and Dolomites are next!
Do you travel away from Northern Ireland for photography?
As long as you want. Typically coverage begins in the morning at the bride's house and you choose the rest depending on your plans. I find that a full day of coverage allows me to capture your day best, from start to finish. Couples can book day after sessions, for that elopement look imagery, sunrise/sunset at an epic location, make the most of your wedding dress and venture to a great location!
How long will you be there on our wedding day?
Absolutely, all my couples get access to my bespoke tips and timeline guidance! Let me know what you need help with, if you need vendor recommendations, and if there’s anything I can do to make the process easier for you.
Do you help in the planning process?
My travel fees are included in all of my packages for NI, Co. Donegal, and Dublin weddings, so you don't have to worry about any extra, unexpected costs/tolls.
Are travel expenses included?
I don’t alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, scrape, etc unless you’d like me to keep it the photos). If you’re self conscious about something, please let me know as I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing you. My editing style includes a light air brushing not altering.
Can you photoshop us?
I’ve got a what to wear guide I’ll send over, don’t worry I’ve got you!
What do we wear for photos?
Heaven forbids this happens, as it would only happen if it were out of my control (act of god, illness, etc) but in this case I would have a replacement photographer (one of my two trusted colleagues) to take my place that I trust. I will still process and cull the wedding photos and deliver them/be in contact with you. I'll still be your photographer, the images will be edited in my style by me.
What happens if you can't make it to our wedding?
For weddings, I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way in Northern Ireland. For couples/family sessions, if it is harsh enough that it would make for a crappy time at our shoot and I can reschedule, then we will set a new date! I usually message you a few days before your shoot with weather updates and to check in.
What if it rains?
