Full Description
I offer one package which includes an engagement shoot in the Belfast area, and photography from the bridal prep to just after the first dance. You'll receive 400+ carefully picked and individually finished photographs on a personalised wooden USB within a couple of months of your wedding. I photograph in a documentary way, rarely interfering with the natural flow of the day and only giving creative input when necessary for the best possible photos, but also the most relaxed wedding day. Many clients and their families have mentioned to me that they barely knew I was there, which was exactly what they wanted. When it came to receiving their photographs, clients have always been absolutely delighted. Most of my bookings come from word of mouth - clients absolutely love their photographs. I have a creative eye and a flair for what will look really amazing as a finished product. I encourage clients to be adventurous to get the best photos, even if it means hoisting up the dress a bit and walking over boggy fields or stones. The results are amazing. I am very friendly and love to get to know my clients from email exchanges, a meeting in person if desired, then the engagement shoot to get used to one another. I love to be placed at a table with guests during the meal to get to know some of the couple's friends.

The memories you've [given] us are just incredible
Dear Anna, Where to begin?! We just can't thank you enough for all that you did at our wedding! For two quite unphotogenic people (!) you managed to put us totally at ease and captured our day just perfectly. The photos are amazing! I find myself browsing through them a lot with a massive smile on my face. We sent out the website cards with our thank you cards and so many of our guests have commented on how perfect the photos are. Thanks so much again - the memories you've provided us are just incredible!

She never failed to impress us with what she captured
Anna provided a much-needed calming presence throughout our wedding day, even at the height of stress when rounding up wandering and stray family members for group photos. She was never obtrusive, but always seemed to capture the spirit of our wedding as it unfolded throughout the day, whether with candid shots, impromptu bridal party photos, the preparations of the bride on the morning or a last-minute round of photos around the grounds of our reception venue. Her photographs are both artistic and classy, and she never failed to impress us with what she captured. Anna injected the same sense of fun into the actual taking of the photographs as she exudes in person, and this is something we both massively appreciated on the day. From the moment we engaged her services, Anna could not have been more helpful, friendly and supportive. Our wedding day certainly would not have been the same without her, certainly not as good or memorable, and we can only thank her for preserving it for us and for our families.

you exceeded my expectations with the finished products
Anna, I truly cannot thank you enough for your amazing photography skills! You were able to capture everything I envisaged for my wedding day & your attention to detail was second to none. I wanted a "blend in the background" photographer to let the day speak for itself & a handful of grouped photos, you met all my requirements & exceeded my expectations with the finished products. I would highly recommend you to anyone! Thank you so much, these memories will last a lifetime!

Bit overwhelmed at their loveliness
I sigh with love evertime I look at our photographs, bit overwhelmed at their lovliness. You captured our wedding in a way that is simply magic and we couldn't wish for better memories. You were also perfectly discrete and somehow still got every moment.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

There are a few - my first wedding was in Paris, France. I also remember fondly the first wedding I charged at full price and felt free to use my creativity - the result was a very happy couple who called my photography "simply magic." Finally, I went over to Northern Ireland to photograph my own wedding photographer's wedding, 5 years after she shot mine. What a privilege​.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My couples are always so delighted with their photographs. Many of them have become friends as a result of them booking me and I know they really love their pictures - some thank me almost every time I see them!!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The bride and groom each kissed their mothers as they reached the end of the aisle - they were their "last kiss" before their "first kiss" as a married couple.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The bride's parents kissing, next to the couple kissing, next to the groom's parents kissing. Another one I loved was the bride and her father outside their house, as they had the same picture of the bride's mother and her father on her wedding day some 25 years earlier.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace it - you only get one wedding day. Buy some big umbrellas, some wellies and enjoy it. As an aside, rain can make for some very atmospheric photos.
