Here I am

I’m Irish, from Cork but have lived right by the beach in Brighton for nearly 20 years. I have shot over 800 weddings all over the UK and abroad. I LOVE to travel so combining my love of photography with that is a dream. I put a lot of love into my work, it’s 100% my passion. I’m married to Andy (our wedding was in Brighton 3 years ago and it was THE best day!) who also works with me as a second shooter from time to time. Oh and I love red wine and sausage dogs but not together.

“Jacqui was the perfect wedding photographer! She took time to get to know us and exactly what we wanted and the photos are absolutely stunning. Her professionalism and her wicked sense of humour made our day so much better!”

How I Work

I shoot in a very relaxed and informal way ......

 I’m not in your face and am mainly in the background all day. I’m always looking for the the small moments, emotions of the day and finding the right light resulting in 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!! So many of my clients tell me that I make them feel really relaxed and I’m super proud of that.

On a wedding day I arrive to document the getting ready. I shoot what I see and don’t set anything up. This is how the whole day goes really. The only time I need to slip out from the shadows is for group shots and the shots of you two on your own. I often break the portraits of you into 2 sessions, before dinner and when the light is softer in the early evening. This is what we call Golden Hour and is my favourite time to shoot you two. The light is soft and you are so much more relaxed. I only need you for 10-15 minutes at the most. For these we go off for a short while and I never pose you but I will put you in the right light/ landscape. The shots I get of you are natural and really are just capturing you as the couple you are. The next time you might be aware of me is when I’m in the middle of it all on the dance floor photographing all the fun and madness.
