I'm a wedding photographer, based in Derry, who adopts a documentary/reportage/photo-journalistic style; allowing me to discretely capture the real moments of your day as they naturally happen, with little to no interference - allowing you to concentrate on what matters most, enjoying as much time as possible with your family and friends.
I love to take photographs that remind of how your wedding day felt, as well as how it looked. Naturally captured photographs that when you look back on will remind you of the special moments from your wedding day, the special people you shared it with, and the real emotion you felt - rather than photographs that simply remind you of being told where to stand, what to do or even what emotion you should be showing.
To truly document your wedding day I love to start early in your day, capturing the nervous energy and excitement of your wedding morning; the hugs and embraces as everyone gathers for your ceremony, the emotion and reverence once the ceremony begins, to the fun and laughter of the speeches...
I don't believe your wedding day stops after your speeches either, or even your first dance... I love to stay and capture moments during the more relaxed post-dinner atmosphere and have no intention of leaving until the dance-floor is full and there's at least one uncle (or friend of your parents who you've always know as uncle at least!) dancing with a tie around his head
I've enjoyed documenting weddings in many well-known local venues, including Lough Eske Castle Hotel, The Red Door Country House, Bishop's Gate Hotel, An Grianan Hotel, Redcastle Hotel, Ballyliffen Lodge Hotel, Kee's Hotel, Mount Errigal Hotel, Maldron Hotel, Inishowen Gateway Hotel, Silver Tassie Hotel, and Ballyscullion Park . I love both the familiarity of the old favourites, and the excitement of working in a venue for the first time - and am looking forward to adding Drenagh House to my site soon.
