I’m a Professional full-time Documentary Wedding Photographer based on the beautiful North Coast of Northern Ireland. I am also a qualified Master Photographer with the UK's leading Professional Photographers Association, the M.P.A. I shoot weddings throughout Ireland North and South, the UK and beyond.
My photographic style is very much of the Reportage genre, often referred to as Documentary Wedding Photography or Wedding Photojournalism. This is the style of photography I love and thrive on, using all my skills of observation, anticipating a shot and often reacting in a split second to capture a decisive moment forever.
I use all my experience gained from shooting weddings over the past ten years to tell and record the story of your wedding day as it unfolds capturing real moments as they happen in a totally natural, honest and realistic way.
Apart for some formal group family photos, which take just a short time and some natural photos of the two of you, I will not pose, direct or interfere with the natural flow of your wedding day.
I don't forget that this is your wedding day and not some kind of editorial photo-shoot. At least that's my take on it and if you agree you may feel I am the photographer you would like to capture your wedding day memories.
Your wedding day will be unique to you and your family and friends and with that thought your photographs should be unique too and not like every other wedding album you have seen with the 'usual' 'same' perfected posed photos.
If you don't share that view it's all good too but to be honest it's unlikely I'm the photographer for you.
I want you to enjoy your day with friends and family rather than being taken away for a long session of endless posed photos and fake smiles.
This approach also lets me get on in an unobtrusive way looking for those special moments that often appear just for that split second and are then gone forever. Those moments can only be captured by a trained and experienced eye.
If my reportage approach to Wedding Photography fits in with how you believe you would like your wedding memories captured then please feel free to call me to arrange to meet up, perhaps chat some more over coffee and see some recent work.
I shoot only a very limited number of weddings each year so please make contact and check availability as soon as possible.
I really look forward to speaking with you.
Feel free to contact me now. If unavailable just leave me short message and i will get back to you as soon as possible.
