What a wonderful fun wedding shoot. Eric and Joanne got married in the National maritime museum in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin. I was so honoured they trusted me to capture their big day. Wedding photography has been something I’ve just stepped into this year and I’ve been flourishing and enjoying it immensely. I’ve invested a lot in my gear for weddings and this has made all the difference to the quality of my images. It’s also been a great learning experience as their is so much to take into account rather and just shooting nature or a corporate event. It’s so much fun to shoot candid photos and documentary style to capture each unique part of the day.
It’s such an enlivening experience being a wedding photographer. The buzz of the day, everyone happy for the couple and the energy is beautiful. The couple chose a civil sand ceremony in the spectacular Museum, which I thought was really unique. After the wedding ceremony they had a reception where I caught photos of the guests enjoying champagne and chocolate strawberries. We then did some formal family portraits and shots of the couple on the beautiful stairs.
My favourite part of covering their wedding was brining them down to Dun Laoghaire pier to shoot some more wedding photos. I’ve seen some photographs of weddings along the pier and I knew I just had to get them down there as it’s so close by the maratime Museum. The sun was out and the weather was windy but we got some great comfortable candid shots and some more formal ones along the pier. We also had the pier bandstand all to ourselves to shoot more photos.
Thanks so much to the couple for trusting me with covering their wedding and for letting me post a few publicly. If you want to see the rest they are in my wedding portfolio. I can send this onto you if you’re interested in having me shoot your wedding. I’m currently taking bookings for wedding photography for June-December 2019 so get in touch for my portfolio and prices. I’m based in Dublin but can travel throught the country.
