You are probably planning your wedding from far away in your home country, or perhaps you have found someone you feel like you will get on with like a house on fire. How do you meet them when you're so far away?
Skype them! It sounds like an obvious one but some people get nervous even thinking about it.
Don't be nervous. You may be on different continents of the world but there's always a way to find out what time suits you both for 1 hour Skype call. There are a couple of plus sides to it.
You don't have to spend time on travel and money on gas!
It may be less awkward than meeting in person since you are situated in a familiar setting that is your home.
You may be more comfortable in asking difficult questions than in person. Although, I should say that Skype calls don't really take away from a real meeting.
Do it right! Stay punctual to the time, double check and make sure you leave plenty of time before the meeting in case you might have any technical difficulties. Your photographer scheduled this meeting into their diary, they are excited to meet you for the first time, respect it and cancel in advance if you can't make it, just like a real meeting.
Intricate details, splashes of colour in fabrics and different textures of wedding cakes will inspire you to come up with your own wedding ideas!
This story of Laura and Ray is unique. It is one of those times when long distance relationships are strong enough to go through the test of time and space and become a true story of love and commitment.
Wedding Photographers and Brides have more in common than they both think. I'm quite lucky to work with brides who are on the same wavelength as me. We both want the same thing from the wedding day.
We want it to be fun, happy and relaxed! I always get to walk away from weddings knowing that I have developed a friendly connection with my clients. I have their parents waving me goodbyes and what more can I ask from the day?
From my daily encounters with people, whether it's friends, family, industry peers, clients or others I found that no matter what you do as a professional, inspiration plays a big part in our daily actions. If you're an accountant or a doctor, an architect or a sculptor, a bride who's organising her wedding or self employed creative like me, inspiration is the driving force of our lives. So how do you come across these things to keep going, especially when you are a bride trying to create a vision of your wedding day!
My goal at every shoot is to have an outfit change. It opens my couples up as personalities and gives more photographic variety as a result.
The first outfit that we start off with is casual, everyday YOU.
It's my birthday week. Yes I am indeed one year older. This past year has been a journey of self awareness and a path to accepting myself with love and grace. It has sort of been a solo trip to getting to a happier and more fulfilled place so I decided to celebrate my new year accordingly.
Standing at the gates of Iveagh Gardens in the heart of Dublin City Centre I quickly realised that the park was closed for the day. Our last point of contact with Derek was 5 minutes ago and the next one would be in person. I've never seen Derek and Erica before and I had no way of contacting him anymore until they arrive at the agreed point of proposal. I think I gained a few grey hairs on my head while I waited.
