michelle and john, phoenix park, dublin

On possibly one of 5 sunny and dry days this past June, I had the pleasure of photographing Michelle and John in Phoenix Park in Dublin. It was a beautiful sunlit evening! Michelle and John did a great job in front of the camera and I'm looking forward to seeing them again at their wedding this September. All shots were done on Fuji Pro 400H, Ilford XP2, and Ilford 3200 film for the techies.

gill and jason, and the baby that stole the show, at the riverside park hotel, enniscorthy

Gill and Jason are two great people that I got to know this past year. I did their Glendalough engagement shoot last May, and I was so excited to shoot their wedding this June because I knew they'd be great.
Gill wore killer purple heels under her gorgeous ruffled dress, and Jason was his usual dashing and charming self. Gill put a lot of thought into her wedding and I love all of the little details like the little personalized heart cookies and napkins. And the cake with the little green birds! I'm glad they put some of their engagement shoot photos to good use too as they used them in their mass booklets and had them framed at their guestbook table.
 There is a certain little sweet girl who stole the show...Gill's niece. Such a gorgeous little girl, smiling and laughing all day and dancing to the soul band Santoria in the early evening! A big hug and thanks to Gill and Jason and all their family! I had a lovely time at the wedding and lots of laughs!

kerry and richard, elegant rainy day june wedding at the step house hotel, borris, county carlow

Kerry and Richard....oh my what a beautiful and stylish couple! I photographed Kerry's gorgeous sister Grainne's wedding last summer, and I was so excited when Kerry contacted me for her wedding this past June. This was the first time I'd been to the Step House Hotel in the little picture perfect village of Borris, County Carlow. It's a beautiful and charming place for a wedding. It was even more charming with the mist of a soft rain and glimmering pavement. A big congratulations to Kerry and Richard! What a beautiful wedding and I was so happy to be part of it!

belle and davy's stylish rustic wedding at ballybeg house in county wicklow

Fantastic wedding I recently shot for Irish girl Belle and Scottish guy Davy at the bohemian Ballybeg House in County Wicklow. Check out their fantastic style! And even though it started to rain during their outdoor ceremony in the walled garden, they didn't let that get them down. Everyone enjoyed themselves and sang Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" together in the rain! So many beautiful details in their wedding that I have to share with another blog or magazine soon. Big hugs and kisses to Belle and Davy for having me there and being excited about me shooting lots of luscious film (and being patient while I changed the rolls!).
