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.

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!

Fire juggling

Had great fun shooting these images in front square the other week. It was a cold and miserable evening but watching the glow come from the fire as it was spun around was spectacular. The jugglers were really talented.

It can be tricky to get the correct shutter speed when shooting images like these. You want to balance the amount of light coming in and also try and capture what pattern they are trying to display. After a few test shots I managed to a few cool light trails from the fire.

Click in and enjoy.

Festival of Holi

It was so much fun to shoot the celebration event of Holi in front square in Trinity College Dublin on Monday. This Hindu Festival represents the coming of spring, victory of good over evil and Love. It’s an ancient Hindu festival and is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.

The sun was beaming down and the crowd were ecstatic throwing the colours in the air and at each other. Trying to get shots off was challenging but all part of the fun! Still trying to get the colours out of my hair and camera haha…

I’d love to get to India some day for the real deal! Pray to Vishnu.

Trinity economic forum

It was great being involved in shooting part of the Trinity economic forum 2017 with TEF.

The Saturday opening talk at the Science gallery Dublin was on fraud in economics and was given by William Black (Economist & former bank regulator). This was followed by an interesting and heated panel debate on Trump and his economic policys. Lastly, Dr. Stephen Kinsella (Economist, Journalist, Deputy Chair of the HEA (Higher Education Authority) and consultant to the Bank of England) gave an insightful talk titled ‘Small states in the age of Trump’. Really well run event and a pleasure to be involved. Click in and check out some of my photos from the event below.

Micheal O’ Leary – Ryanair

It was great to be hired to shoot photos for Trinity Entrepreneurial of Micheal O’ Leary, giving a seminar to students and staff of the Trinity Business school.

He lived up to his controversial self, giving advice and cracking jokes. The seminar was mostly Q&A with his insights into how to pursue a life in business. He ended on a final note about being as ambitious as you can. As when you leave college so many doors are opened with your degree,that you shouldn’t shy away about doing what you love and aiming for what you truly want with drive and ambition.

Great event and well done to the committee for organizing it.
