I've been a professional photographer working in Ireland for almost fourteen years now. I know what you're thinking; 'But she only looks twenty two?" right? Thanks guys!  
I've spent a couple of years in commercial photography, press and PR, then onto portraits for a few years and now I've taken all that experience and channelled it into weddings....and my God does it serve me well! 
My approach to wedding days is simple....elegant portraiture for the bride, natural and fun portraits of the couple and the other 90% of the day is watching for all the real life wedding moments, the tears of joy, the silly kids both big and small, the looks of pride in parents faces, the drunk guests, the dancing....oh yes the dancing, the games and the funny moments.  
I like to put a bit of glamour into portraits and the rest is just high energy fun time. Weddings are happy!
