Trisha & Brady, Engagement Shoot, Strandhill, Co.Sligo

4 days, 4 engagement shoots! For Trisha & Brady’s eshoot, we had to take shelter near Strandhill, down a farm lane I sometimes use when I need some shelter. With Brady being from New Zealand, it worked out great, as the couple loved the cool, very Irish scenery down the wee farm lane! Trisha & Brady currently live in Perth Australia…my wedding tomorrow also includes a couple living in Perth…definitely a small world! And the day before Trisha & Brady’s wedding, I have another wedding with a couple that has just moved back to Ireland from yep, Australia!!

Mairead & Mark, Engagement Shoot, Collooney, Co.Sligo

On the hottest day of the year, we somehow just got this engagement shoot done before the best thunderstorm I’ve ever seen broke out over Sligo!!

Taken around Mairead’s home near Collooney, this was an amazing location with opportunities for pictures everywhere! Farm lanes, old farm buildings, a huge rock in the back garden which Mairead & Mark had no problem with going up on (as Mairead used to do as a kid!) and then a beautiful field with a small mountain in the background.

That last shot (above) we just about got done before the rain started & quickly moved in! But the stunning dark sky in the background really gives that image some depth & an epic feeling to it!

Erica & David, Wedding, Eachleim Blacksod to Belmullet Co.Mayo

Last Friday I headed west, almost as far west as you can go in Mayo, towards Blacksod where I shot Erica & David’s wedding. I’d been to Blacksod before for some engagement shoots, but this was my first wedding in the area. It’s funny how small this country can be sometimes…I shot Olga & Gerry’s eshoot around Blacksod, Olga is Erica’s cousin, and Erica’s holiday home neighbours beside the lighthouse happen to be Arlene & Donal, whose wedding I shot back in 2010! As far as I know, that’s just random coincidence & not a direct referral or anything! And Erica’s father looks after refueling of the boys from the Sligo Coast Guard chopper, who are based in Strandhill airport, who I see regularly hovering above my home!

Anyway back to Friday’s wedding. Blacksod was amazingly beautiful & Caribbean like for Erica & David’s eshoot…on Friday, she had her wild west coat on…howling winds, drizzle, getting outside at any point would be a challenge! On arrival at Erica’s home, everything was running perfectly on time, and I got down to capturing the moments happening during the morning. I place a huge emphasis on wedding albums…it’s what you’ll look at in the future, not the digital copies, and when Erica’s mum brought out her own wedding album for the girls to look at, that just confirmed everything I’ve said about wedding albums!

After capturing a few relaxed portraits inside, I made my way to the church & quickly grabbed a few shots of David & the guys before the ceremony began, in the most packed church I’ve ever been in! I love that, it creates a fab atmosphere, even if it makes it a bit tricky for the musicians who couldn’t see a thing!! Following the beautiful ceremony, we quickly got the family photos inside before heading toward Blacksod Lighthouse, where we would be doing some portraits, if the weather played the game! Thankfully the lighthouse itself provided a bit of a wind breaker, and allowed us outside for enough time to get some images with the lighthouse in the background.

I knew the lighthouse was a pretty big deal for Erica’s family, but not until I got home did I realise how much! It was Erica’s grandfather, keeper of the lighthouse, who gave one of the most important weather reports in history, that gave D-Day in 1944 the go-ahead on 6th June, when the weather was perfect! What an amazing part of history! – http://www.irishexaminer.com/lifestyle/features/the-irishman-who-gave-the-d-day-go-ahead-271114.html

Needless to say, I was so happy that the weather allowed us to get outside for a short window for some images with the lighthouse!

Thanks again for having me document your wedding day Erica & David!
