I have worked a s a photographer for almost 20 years, shooting weddings, portraits, publicity photos and press photographs all over the UK, Ireland, Europe and the US.
I’m originally from Cork in Ireland, and have been living in the UK for 19 years. Before that my entry into professional photography was as a press photographer rather randomly in Prague, Czech Republic. Having started my career working for other photographers (this generally involved me bugging them until they let me work for them). I branched out on my own full time in 2000. In 17 years I have of course gone from shooting film to shooting and editing digitally. I still love film but I also love the control working with digital gives me.
I still get the same kick out of photography today as I did 100 years ago when I picked up my first Pentax K1000.
I’m naturally nosey so watching people (with or without the camera) is just heaven for me.
My clients tell me I help them keep calm at the start of the wedding when the nerves are kicking in. My family find this hilarious, apparently I’m more calm at work than I am at home.
I shoot with Nikon D750 and D810 cameras and the best Nikon prime lenses. I love to shoot in natural light where possible. My background before becoming a photographer was in photographic printing. This gave me great training in how color works and how to get the best out of black and white. In my downtime I shoot with the the gorgous Fujifilm x100t camera and it’s prefect for taking on my travels.
I’m also super lucky to work with my husband Andy. He takes a major role in running the business side of things as well working as a second photographer. He’s the prefect second shooter, discreet and fabulous at picking up on those extra details and emotions of the day.
My style is relaxed and informal with an eye for fine details and a view to creating strong and vibrant images. My job is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and I feel the images you see here on the site show you that I’m pretty good at that!!
