Reportage wedding photography is fresh, unique and natural. The photos aren't posed and they aren't directed. The photos capture what happens on your day and how you are feeling. That is why they are unique! The difference to other wedding photography is that your photographer doesn't tell you what to do, where to go, how to stand or how to feel. When you have invested so much into your wedding, being there to fully enjoy the magic of your wedding day without being directed all day long is priceless!
Reportage photos connect to your heart's memory and can transport you back to the magical feelings you experienced on your wedding day. Imagine that in the years to come. Memories of emotional and funny moments and your friends and family. How you were. How they were. Priceless.
I am based in Kildare and travel fee depends on how far I have to travel and if I need to stay overnight. In general <100km is ok for me to travel to / from on your day.
I've been lucky to shoot weddings for over 10 years and have shot > 100.
I’ve concentrated on developing my ability to shoot weddings without interfering with the natural flow of the day. Robert Capa (founder of Magnum photo agency with Henri Cartier Bresson) said’ “if your photos aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough”.
I believe the only way to get natural wedding photos is for the people being photographed to feel comfortable being themselves in front of the camera. No techniques to create the same photos at every wedding. Real and natural photos that capture real moments will always resonate more personally.
I love connecting with engaged couples, gaining their trust and photographing their wedding days, capturing images that will always connect them to their deepest bliss. Connection is the only way that natural and real style photos can be captured.
My philosophy in life is harmony. Harmony in my work, my relationships and my spiritual life. The presence that arises from this is what I bring to all my weddings.
I'll be with from preparation to first few dances, or less time if you prefer. A premium storybook album. Price range is €2k to €3k typically.
I work on location so no dedicated studio. I'll meet you for a coffee or video chat if you are one of my overseas customers.
I'm a fully insured member of the Irish Professional Photographers and Videographers Association (LIPPVA). Personal growth and learning are a passion of mine and so I'm always updating my skills!
I look forward to chatting with you.
