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.
Shooting weddings in November means less daylight and Stephen and Terrie were kind enough to understand that. The minute we arrived at Moyvalley Hotel, we went to catch the setting sun and it was the best soft light that illuminated the most beautiful autumn coloured trees.
You will hear me talking about changing the look in a photoshoot a lot. When you're booking me as your wedding photographer you receive a pre-wedding shoot in the package. With the help of a fashion blogger Eva, and a mommy of 3, we will demonstrate using 2 looks to style a pre-wedding photoshoot.
Hey there, what do you think about these dark and cold winter days? I think they can be lonely and even quite hard to endure. Imagine this, if a cup of tea or coffee could save someone's life would you want them to reach out? I feel that the need for raising more awareness around loneliness and depression is getting bigger. Read about my thoughts on why I think it's okay to reach out.
I am delighted to say that once again our hard work came into life by being printed in Irish Wedding Journal Magazine. There is nothing more than the pride that it brings to me and the satisfaction for hard work of the team that participated on this shoot. I hope you enjoy the quirkiness of this feature!
When the reality around you is changing it is more than likely that it wants you to notice why. Why were people dramatically changing their passion and their professional direction? Why was I holding on to my passion as tight as I was and was I doing it any good? Insecurity, fear and stubbornness isn't a good way to create art. I went on quite a journey to answer a few soul tormenting questions and here's what I came up with!
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.
