Seóna and Leo's First Look

For many couples planning their wedding, the idea of a "first look" has become an increasingly popular. A first look is an intimate moment shared between the couple before their ceremony, where they see each other for the first time. Traditionally, the couple would wait until they walked down the aisle to have this special moment, but Seóna and Leo's story shows us the numerous advantages of opting for a first look, even if they were having a church wedding.

Karen & Chris - Relaxed City Hall Wedding

We love working alongside couples who are planning relaxed intimate weddings, Karen & Chris’s wedding at Cityhall was very much this.

Rachel & Joey - Clonabreany House

2020 was certainly a changed year, after a wedding on the 12th of March the country went into lockdown, our first wedding back was with Rachel & Joey at Clonabreany House. At this time you could have 50 people at your wedding and a live band, we were getting used to the new social distancing rules, the sanitising of hands, but this was the first wedding we shot wearing masks. That was something that was a little surreal.

Choosing a time of year to get married and then wondering what the weather will be like...

Clonabreany House - Inspirational Shoot

Through out the year we always take a bit of time out for an inspirational shoot.  For years we have spent time shooting editorial work for magazines, an inspirational shoot is something different, it’s a cross over from our editorial work and weddings.  A day out at a venue like Clonabreany gives you great time to explore, looking at different angles and new was of shooting, which we then can introduce into our weddings.
