I am a wedding photographer who uses an innovative style of photography, mixing contemporary and traditional styles. I have worked as a professional photographer for the past ten years, specialising in weddings. My job on the day is to help you relax so that you look your best! I mix the serious with the not so serious. If you want fun, relaxed images of your day that will last a lifetime, please get in touch.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Athlone, Co. Westmeath but I do not charge for travel when the wedding is in the Republic of Ireland.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been in business 12 years and I have photographed over 500 weddings in that time.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I have an innovative style of photography, that mixes contemporary and traditional styles. There are a lot of fun in my images and the couples are very relaxed in my photography.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

On the morning of your wedding, I will capture the fears and excitement of the groom (and groomsmen!) before arriving at the Bride’s house to shoot the buzz and animation of the preparations.  
I will then proceed to the church to immortalize that special moment when you become husband and wife. Many of the shots taken in the church are candid shots from a distance using a zoom lens. This ensures that all shots are natural whilst allowing you to focus on and enjoy the ceremony. After the ceremony I will take formal shots of you signing the register and group photos of your nearest and dearest as desired by the happy couple. A wide selection of photos of the newlyweds and their wedding party are then captured in either the grounds of the hotel or a specified location. 
On arrival at the hotel, Liam will capture photos of the guests and the reception room before the couple go in for the meal.  
I charge €1600 for the coverage outlined above.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I normally meet people in a local hotel. I do a lot of Skype calls with couples which saves people from travelling. 
My skype usrename is lkidney.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I am a member of IPPVA, WPPI, The Guild and the SWPP. I have spent many years educating myself by attending training and conferences in the UK, Ireland and America. I also have a BSc In Computer Applications.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I love the simple things in life! I am married to Laura and I have two lovely kids Sean and Aine
