Wedding Photography

I’ve started shooting a lot more weddings this past few years for a few reasons – firstly I meet A LOT of people at work and a lot of people get married. Secondly, and more importantly, I love shooting them! It’s a genuine honour to be a part of someone’s big day and to create images they will look back on and treasure for years to come. I love shooting events an commercial work it’s a real challenge creatively but people won’t look back on those images in 20 years whereas with weddings they are memories which people hold dear and I love that!

With all my wedding packages I give the couple their photos on a USB so they can get as many prints as they like and share them with family and friends. It’s only a little device but the appearance and how it works are vitally important to how I do business. I put my all into the photography and I want to do it justice when I give the images to my clients rather than send just an online link it’s important to have something physical. I came across a site called USB memory direct and decided to give them a go because they had gorgeous redwood USBs which match my red hair (ridiculous reason I know but a reason none the less) and they are great – so this post is mainly to recommend them to other photographers. So far they copy quickly, you can personalise them, they are really reliable and look great – and you can order them in bulk too so I got 50 to keep me going. Very impressed will definitely be ordering again when this bunch run out (might even try a different colour next time)

PRIDE

Had a blast working on an exhibition for Pride a couple of weeks ago but now reading more saddening news about homophobic politicians and the fact of marriage equality in NI is still an issue! There's not much I can do bar support those campaigning for change but with that in mind I thought I could at least show that I believe in marriage equality so I'm offering the chance of 2 free couple/engagement shoots for LGBT+ couples so comment below with your full name and partners name if you're  interested and I'll randomly pick a couple of winners!!! (Shoots to be in belfast or  within 30mins drive of, closing date for entries August 19th, you'll get all your photos high quality no catch) you can see my wedding work on www.crazyhappylove.com, I promise to make you look good and hopefully you'll have fun doing it #marriageequality #crazyhappylove #pride #belfastweddingphotographer

KITTY!

A whole year ago tonight I was shooting a wedding in donegal and came out to the car before the first dance and found a little crying kitty who was in pretty bad shape! Got him a wee bowl of milk and went in to shoot some more, nipped back out with some water for him and he was waiting on me then went in to finish shooting. When I came back he was still there and followed me to my car so obviously he was coming to live with me!! Purred on my knee the whole way home and after a few vet trips and a lot of hugs and dreamies has grown to be a big strong ridiculously happy cat! Happy (kind of) birthday Louie!!!
