First and foremost, I’m Irish!
In a nutshell: I love a good solid banter, a few cheeky whiskies (neat thank you!), I’m not afraid to be direct and a bit bossy when needed, while also being caring and nurturing. And yes, I will accomodate all 33 and 1/3 jokes!
I grew up on a mountain in Ireland, and had grand plans to study photo journalism. My father was an amateur photographer, and pretty much always had a camera in hand. When I lost him at the age of ten, I found that I could re-live so many moments from my early childhood through the beautiful photographs he took. He had such a keen eye, and it shaped the way I saw the world and what I held close and valued.
I met and married my beautiful husband Chris 2 years ago, and we are now juggling life as parents to our little off-spring Ella Florence and our Kelpie-lab Ben. (Both named after Ella Fitzgerald, Florence and The Machine, and Ben Harper…. ) We are die hard music nerds.
I love being a Mum but I equally love being a business owner and I feel that my little company is actually my first child as such! So much love, time and energy goes into each job I do, it’s where I feel most at home. I’ve totally found who I am. What I do, and what I’m about.
I value and have a sixth sense for the connections and chemistry that filters in and out of a wedding day. It’s all in the wee moments such as when your stoic Nan finally succumbs to the tears, to the sneaky glances you guys exchange when no one is watching. I’ll also be on hand to fix any broken seams, clip some hair back in, calm down an anxious mother in law, I’m a nurturer by nature so I promise I’ll be there to help you along the way. Most importantly, I will absolutely get up and dance with all of your family and friends. One of my favourite parts of a wedding is when people lose their sense of self to music and dance like no-one is watching. I believe that music is food for the soul, all the boundaries come down and I get to capture that in all of it’s rawness. Pure gold!
Every wedding day is so different and it’s my job to tell your story. I’m a huge advocate for helping you work out the time line for your day so you get the most of it and it gives me the opportunity to provide you with meaningful images at the end of it all.
I really love to meet my clients to get to know them over a wine/whiskey. I want to know what makes you guys ‘you’ and what you value and love. So drop me a line and say hi!
