Hi I'm Carrie
Thanks for checking out Crazy Happy Love!
My photography career started shooting gigs and musicians 2 decades ago when I was still studying photography at college. I first fell in love with photography when I was in school. I always loved art and photography was a new way to create. It also served as a way to get out of maths class by hiding in the darkroom because nobody ever checked there. Needless to say I am still terrible at maths but the photography worked out ok so it’s all good!!
After a brief phase photographing old buildings and street art like all art students do, I quickly realised that I LOVED working with people. What better way to meet lots of amazing new people than through photographing their happiest moments. Weddings, engagements and family events – all the big occasions. In my career I’ve shot everyone from Taylor Swift to ACDC, and even the Queen one time in Bushmills so I’m well versed in portraits. Weddings however, are a really special chance to photograph images people will treasure for years to come (and your ears ring less afterwards!)
As a Belfast wedding photographer I know the city inside out, but I also love to travel all across Ireland for weddings. Whether your day is a tiny intimate ceremony or a larger affair, photos are so important. But so are celebrating and champagne! I work quickly to make sure you get the most possible time to celebrate with your family and friends. Shooting in a documentary style means lots of images without lots of time away. Shooting in a relaxed, documentary style to capture creative images with colour and emotion. I want to get you photos which show the big moments and little details. And let’s not forget the epic dance floor moves your uncle bob threw which you will look back on for years to come and smile. No cheesy poses or disappearing for three hours to get a photo up a mountain.
Colourful, Creative Photos from your Big Day!
So What makes an alternative wedding photographer?
If I had to describe my style I’d say it was relaxed, honest and fun. I’m very much an alternative wedding photographer – no cheesy poses and hours standing in front of a camera. My plan is to have you smiling and laughing during your photo shoot because photos should be fun. I focus on capturing moments rather than poses but don’t worry, I’ll always give a little direction when needed to make sure you look your best. Everyone tells me they hate being photographed but I promise I’ll make it fun and relaxed.
I have spent a lot of my career shooting musicians so have learnt to get great portraits without spending forever at it, often working in low light. Wedding venues are a dream to shoot in after dressing rooms!
When I’m not behind a camera I’m listening to music, hanging out with my cats and my little girl. I love great food, nice wine and am a vegan so if you’re looking a leather album you won’t find it here I’m afraid. I offer gorgeous linen and tweed ones instead! My hair is bright red so I’m easy to spot for a photo op and I am a total people person who loves the chance to chat to all your lovely guests!!
