It’s time to view some Portraits again!! Yeah. This was Caitlin’s First Portrait at 1 year old. This is a great time to photograph your child as they are usually pretty steady on their feet, just about to walk but not fast enough to run away from the camera!! It is also a lovely age as your child will have developed their own little personality! Caitlin was affectionate, playful and very cute!! Isn’t her colouring just perfect? What a beautiful little girl who, might I add, is now the BIG sister!!

This was one of the fist days where I really felt the summer coming. It’s been a long time coming this year!! We chased the sun around the great big mountain of Slieve Gullion, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Martina was warm enough during the shoot and Liam was freezing!! It’s always the guys that get cold!! Liam remember to wear your coat- you’re getting married in December!! p.s Really dig your lovely cork accent!! Martina & Liam have ordered a signboard with one of their favourite images on it to use instead of a guest book. It will be displayed at their wedding in December!!
If you like Vintage, then you are going to LOVE Briege & Peter’s amazing wedding which was planned in just 6 months! Little did Briege & Peter know that a brief encounter in the kitchen (Peter’s a chef) at a friends party a couple of years ago would blossom into true love. There is a very obvious appeal of all things antique in Briege’s style but also a quirky element too. Briege’s dress was made of the most beautiful lace I have ever seen and she wore it perfectly while the bridesmaids wore their 1950′s inspired dresses with ease. These were hand made in Kinsale by talented design duo Charlotte & Jane. After the service guests were entertained in Briege’s family pub, ‘McAtee’s‘ in Fintona and enjoyed dinner & dancing till the wee small hours in Peter’s home land of Donegal at Lough Eske Castle.

This is a quick post as there are a lot of amazing images to look at which tell the beautiful story of Anna & Cathal’s gorgeous Wedding much better than I could ever tell with words- maybe that’s why I’m a photographer!! Telling stories through photographs – that’s what I do!! I don’t need to tell you that Anna was beautiful – you can clearly see this!! You will also notice that, despite being late (I had to add that in!!) she thoroughly enjoyed herself. I have written about this before and if you are a happy bride not worrying about everyone else having a good time it will clearly show in your photographs! What you may not be able to tell through the images is that, despite the beautiful warm light, it was really cold for Anna & Cathal who are used to the high temperatures of Dubai, where they live!! Anna didn’t let this put her off and was up for anything, quoting “beauty feels no pain!!” I think you’ll see the results of a great photographer + happy, enthusiastic bride (& groom) = gorgeous photographs!! Enjoy!!

Is it wrong to get on with your clients so well?!! I look forward each time I meet Julie & Damian. We go for cups of tea and snack bars!! I don’t know how many words we exchange when we meet but the conversation is always good and we speak very quickly each time we meet!! Can you imagine how excited I am to photograph their wedding in December? I have a rule that I don’t normally photograph friends weddings (it’s the only opportunity I get to go as a guest!!) but I suppose I’m breaking the rule here as I really consider these guys to be friends now. Here are some gorgeous photographs of Julie & Damian taken at their e-session, near Letterkenny. They have ordered a Framed Montage of 3 photographs and a cute gift size Portrait in Black & White for their new home, still space for the Wedding Portraits. Can’t wait!
So it looks like I am the new resident photographer at the lovely Solis Lough Eske- well I’m there most weekends anyway- I can think of worse ways to spend my weekends!! I LOVE it here!! Thank you to Donal & Mark at Lough Eske for making me feel so at ease and letting me be creative. Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing beautiful Briege and her new husband Peter. As usual I have a sneek peek to share with you soon after the wedding and a longer post will follow within the next few weeks. I’m glad that the sun shone for Briege on Saturday and I have to say this girl knows how to enjoy herself!! I always try and remind my brides that it’s important, after all the time and energy spent preparing a wedding that it’s really important that you enjoy your day. Might I add that Briege organised their wedding (it’s always the bride!!) in just 6 months- pheww!!
