What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was Cat & Ed's wedding at Broadhaven Bay in Belmullet County Mayo. It was my first destination wedding and first opportunity to use a beach for wedding photos!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Beautiful, Natural, Documentary, Photojournalistic, Unobtrusive
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm proud of the lovely testimonials and reviews that I have received from lots of happy couples.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I advise my couples not to plan too many formal group shots. Formal group shots can take up to 5 mins per group as it always takes time to gather wedding guests for the photos. I recommend limiting the group shot list to around 10 groups max.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My favourite personal touch at a wedding was a wedding cake which truly represented the couple - it was a stunning cake featuring elements of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones in the design.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I normally arrange a meeting or Skype consultation to discuss you wedding plans and talk you through my wedding packages and range of wedding albums. Following this if the couple would like to make a booking I require a £300 deposit and a contract to be signed and returned.
Some of my wedding packages come with a pre-wedding shoot. This is organised midweek Mon-Thurs closer to the time of the wedding and allows me to get to know the couple so that they can be as relaxed as possible on the wedding day itself - resulting in beautiful, natural wedding photos.
After the wedding you will receive your photos in an online gallery typically 4-6 weeks after the wedding day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The majority of my work is documentary style photography however I would still recommend time is taken on a few portraits with the couple. I aim to keep these as fun and natural as possible.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
You can still get stunning wedding photos on a wet day. A white umbrella for the bride and rainbow coloured umbrellas for bridesmaids can look fab!
Describe how you got into photography.
I was a self-employed web designer and wanted to offer an extra service, so I learned photography. I soon started photographing weddings, sporting events, and gigs and haven't looked back!
