Karolina & Eoin | Connemara | Ireland | Lovebirdshoot

October 29th. 2014 | 2 Comments

Awh Karolina and Eoin. What kind and wonderful souls they are. I have been so inspired by Karolina and I guess I continue to have a kindred in spirit in her. She has a heart the size of the universe, she has a childlike wonder in the smallest of things. Like myself Karolina loves nature and to be outdoors. {It really is so good for the heart and mind} The morning after this shoot we all drove around and found a wee beach to soak in the last of the clean air and majesty that Connemara is full of. Karolina and myself went for a paddle while the boys laughed at us shrieking: In fairness we were acting like maggots, all the while being wowed by life under the water.

Sara & Tony | LoveBirdShoot | Lanzarote | Canary Islands

October 07th. 2014 | Leave a comment

Lanzarote how we miss you and the wonderful evening spent touring around with the vibrant Sara and Tony, sweet hearts from Ireland who fell head over heals with this wildly beautiful volcanic island. Driving around for the few days we were there I can see why. Its stark and vast, explosions of colour pop up from the black soil in the form of peculiar plants, there are stunning mountain scape which are filled pockets of little villages up in the mountains full of shaded squares full of people chatting in the sunshine, The evening of Lovebirdshoot we headed to the sleepy village of Femmes which seemed to be inhabited by only the four of us. It was idilic. Sara and Tony were so loved up, rightly so, as their big day was not too far away. As the even winds started to pick up, we headed to the National Park for one or two more shots. With the Montañas del Fuego keeping a watchful eye over us we watched the sun paint us all incredible shades of gold as it dropped behind the ocean.

I feel overwhelmed by sheer joy when I think of all we experienced on this cruise. Just looking over the last few images has me blubbing. The winter cruise was called hunting the light and by golly we certainly did that. Hand on heart I can say that this was one of thee most beautiful and magical experiences of my life. I feel so privileged to live on such a vast and enigmatic planet and I am humbled that I got to share one of my life long dreams with my soulmate.

ts strange to have family living at the other side of the world. I know there is the phones/post/facebook etc but its not like calling around to your cousins for a pot of tea and a good old natter. So earlier this year I was thrilled to hear that, not only were family coming home for a week but Darragh was bringing his beautiful fiancée Christine.

Kate & David | Wedding | Ballintaggart House | Dingle | Wedding

September 22nd. 2014 | Leave a comment

You all know that we love nothing more than a great wedding in Dingle, in Ballintaggrt House. Even after all this time there is something that pulls you back to the house and you fall even more in love than before. I think also that there is a magic spell cast over the estate and that it chooses you, you don’t choose it! When we met Kate and David, I knew the right choice had been made. Kate is a remarkable soul, a striking lady, quite but so very strong even though I don’t think she realised just how strong. David is her loveable beau, full of love and laughter!  I couldn’t have been more thrilled when they asked us to be their wedding photographers. Ballintaggart always affords its couples…View Full Post.
