Eric and Joanne’s wedding

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.

Yemaya fashion shoot

Really happy to release these images I took a few months back.

These are the amazing creative designs by the talented Haile lemarie of Yemaya clothing. We shot a few of her different summer pieces on the beautiful Tiny Pixie. Shooting in and around the Bernard Shaw and Portobello area, we set the scene for her unique urban styles. Give her a follow and check out more of her work.

Really happy with how this shoot went and I’m excited to venture more into Portrait and fashion photography. So hit me up if you have any ideas you would like to collaborate on.

Hope you all enjoy

Coccinella magnifica

The humble ladybird or ladybug if you’re from north America. Found throughout the garden year long the ladybird is a farmers best friend as they feast upon aphids another other herbivorous insects. The name “ladybird” originated in Britain where the insects became known as “Our Lady’s bird” or the Lady beetle. I love the way the face looks like a little skull.

I shot these with a 100mm macro lens. Running around the leaves, I was trying my best to capture it, then suddenly it stopped halfway through to pose for a few close up shots. 🙂

Enjoy

Cyanistes caeruleus

So I bought a little bird feeder and stuck it out in the front garden and look who arrived to feast. The Eurasian blue tit is a small passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. These little fellas have a beautiful chripy call and are hard to photograph as they are so quick. Click in and check them out 🙂

Dublin Winter Solstice Festival

The Dublin Winter Solstice festival took place just at the end of December and I’m only getting a chance to go through the photos now!

The lighting of the ceremonial fire took place in DIT Grangegorman, where the Smashing Times Theatre and Film Company also put on story telling, face painting and a ceili.

The fire was light by Slí An Chroí with the flame form the ceremonial sunrise fire at the scared site of Newgrange. Newgrange is best known for the illumination of its passage and chamber by the winter solstice sun. The sun shines in through a small opening above the chamber on the shortest days of the year, around December 21st, illuminating the entire chamber.

The theater company then put on a short dance show and we all headed in a parade towards Smithfield square. Here the fire was placed down and people were then invited to write what they would like to leave behind and invite in for the new year.

It was a really great event with great energy and fun!

Lets hope the fire listens to my wishes for the new year!

Trinity College Cancer Society Naked Calender

It was another really fun time shooting the Trinity College Cancer Society’s naked calendar. Collaborating with 12 different societies and clubs each with their own idea of how they want to be presented was challenging.

Having to get a lot of your settings and composition, so bits aren’t out, on the fly was the hard part.

The shoots were fast and some were held in pretty public spaces and there were a few bewildered passers by at times which everyone had a great laugh about.

Ultimately each of the shoots came out great and hopefully I managed to present each of them how their respective committees envisioned.

Fair play to all the people involved for giving their time and getting their kit off for such a great charitable society.

All Profits from the sale of the calendar go to the various Irish Cancer societies at the end of the year. If you want to pick up a calendar you can at House 6, at the students union shop in front square.

Here are a few of my favourite images.. If you want to see the rest you’ll have to get out and purchase a copy!
