Every wedding is as unique as you are and I tailor my wedding collections to suit your day and your dream wedding experience. When you enquire I will be in touch to schedule a zoom or phone call to hear all about your plans and vision for your wedding. I will send you a proposal with a few options that could include coverage until the call for dinner, extended coverage, a second photographer, fine art wedding albums, my album design service, parent albums, an engagement shoot, and photo or 360 booth.
In 15 years of shooting weddings, thankfully that situation has never come up. I always arrive early and make sure I understand the plans before the day. In the event something like that did happen I would endeavour to put in place a replacement photographer of an equivalent style and calibre. Alternatively I would return your full investment and allow you to make your own arrangements if you choose to.
In advance of the day I welcome the chance to input into your timeline to ensure you have the most beautiful light and adequate time for everything you want. I approach the wedding day with a full heart and open eyes. Capturing everything from the big moments to the quieter moments in-between in a relaxed way. I also love curated details as they tell a rich story of the day.
Typically I arrive 2 hours before your service to cover bridal preparations and if you added a second photographer they will arrive with your partner about an hour before they leave where they're getting ready. For International events we arrive a few days before your wedding to acclimatise and scout locations.
For weddings in Northern Ireland and Donegal travel is included and accommodation is not required. Outside of this area and for international destination weddings travel and accommodation is required. When we talk through your plans I can work out how many days are needed and can add this to your collection. I will handle all travel arrangements so you don't need to worry about that at all.
Typically, I curate 70-100 images per hour of coverage.
I use all the latest Sony equipment, with backups for everything in the rare event that anything should happen to one of my cameras or lenses on a wedding day.
Absolutely, send me across your wish-list of what you would love and I can create a bespoke collection which is tailored to your specific needs.
You can choose to add on coverage by a second photographer. I have a group who are very accomplished and shoot weddings under their own brands. On the day they capture the groom or other bride prep, lots of candid images of guests and any kids running around. They not only assist me and you on the day, but they also get a second perspective on the day. Depending on the scale of your event additional shooters can be added to ensure everything is captured.
I put a lot of planning into ensuring your timeline is perfect and I can connect with your wedding planner or co-ordinator to make sure the incredible moments of your day are captured in the best light possible.
When you're ready to book you can sign your contract online and pay the 20% booking fee to confirm your date. The final balance is due 30 days before your wedding day.
I offer a serivce to help you to get the most equisite album.
You either choose your images from your online gallery or attend an in-person viewing at my studio where I can help you to narrow down the image selection to your favourites. Attending the studio alos enables you to view album samples and you will choose your cover style and can add on extras like parent albums.
I naturally retouch these images for your album and design a beautiful album design and send this to you for approval.
Once approved your wedding album goes into production.
I'm passionate about print and want you to have an heirloom to cherish and to pass onto future generations. Being able to hold an album in your hands of the best day of your life is a beautiful experience.
Yes, if you choose not to include an album with your wedding coverage you can choose to order an album and design yourself from your online gallery.
Images for an engagement or portrait session are ready in two weeks and for weddings your images will be ready in around five weeks. Your gallery is hosted for one year during which time you can share and download your images in high resolution as many times as you would like. I also offer a hosting service if you would like to extend hosting of your gallery in the future.
I start with your immediate family, then add in any partners and kids. Six weeks before your wedding day I send you a questionnaire where you can share all the details of your day and any additional family photos you'd love. I can shoot the family portraits in twenty minutes (if everyone's there) and any additional group shots take a 3-5 minutes each. I would suggest keeping the portraits after the service to a minimum so you have time for your couples portraits and to relax before dinner. In between dinner and dancing we'll have time to get photos with anyone you missed earlier.
You'll have a chance to share ideas in the wedding questionnaire I'll send you six weeks before your wedding. I am detail orientated and do my best work capturing your unique day as it unfolds, so you can relax there's no need to supply a list.
Q: SHOULD I MAKE A SHOT LIST OF MY DESIRED PHOTOS?
I shoot a lot of images on the day, thousands, these are curated down to include the best images, removing any with blinks and unflattering expressions etc. All final images are individually edited and finished before I present them at your viewing and in your online gallery.
I have shot weddings in Ireland and around the world for the last decade and it has provided me with the skills to deal with four seasons in one day and how best to shoot in a variety of conditions. With that said, it's great to have a plan B in place. Many venues have great indoor locations that can be a great alternative, but many couples are up for making it work outside if conditions aren't too crazy.
Q: CAN YOU SUPPLY A PHOTO BOOTH?
Yes, our sister brand, Roxbury Booth is perfect for your wedding celebration. It is a luxury open style booth which not only looks great, but is super fun!
