Maria & John | Lovebirdshoot | University Limerick

November 20th. 2014 | Leave a comment

Sweet, wonderful, full of sunshine Maria met us first in the university of Limerick at a wedding fair, {alas some how John managed to escape that wedding fair day.} It is where she and John met and it just seemed fitting that we would go back there for their Lovebirdshoot. Both admitted that they were a little nervous about the impending photoshoot but after a few minutes we literally lost them to giggles and chatter which with me around was more than contagious!

Not too long ago we had the honor of capturing Yvonne and Danny’s wedding in Ballyseede Castle. Since then, I have lost count of the amount of people that have asked me to blog they beautiful couples wedding. Personally I don’t blame you; Yvonne’s style was impeccable. Everything from her dress to choice of venue (and her beau of course!) was just lush!

Louise and Phelim | Wedding | Kilshane House | Tipperary | Wedding

November 10th. 2014 | 4 Comments

Louise and Phelim got married just over a year ago in the superb Kilshane House. These are two lovely people really really fun, easy going souls. Although listening to their “adventures” of the trip down from Dublin I was fully expecting to find two very tired and sleepy really fun, easy going souls, not the case as we found a smiling Louise chilling with her girlies as Audrey and Laura were doing what they do best… make beautiful ladies even more beautiful!

Karolina & Eoin | Connemara | Ireland | Lovebirdshoot

October 29th. 2014 | 4 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.
