On the Day
your photos should be fun
Wedding Photography in Belfast and Beyond
I’m based in Belfast offering alternative wedding photography but I love to travel all over!! I love scouting new locations and meeting new people! I’ve been all across Ireland, Glasgow and even France for weddings so get in touch no matter where your wedding is to discuss plans. I charge a small travel fee on long distance weddings but absolutely love the chance to travel!Don’t worry if you’re nervous about being in front of the camera you will love it! I work in a relaxed manner as it’s so important to put couples at ease in front of the camera so the photos are always natural and a fun part of your day. I like to We’ll meet up before the day to discuss ideas, locations and plans and put any fears at rest.
Photos should be fun…
Not everyone loves being photographed but I constantly get thanks from those I photograph for putting them at ease and making it fun! The joy of alternative wedding photography is no long painful grins at the camera. I shoot a lot of unposed, natural images and always aim to make it fun. You will basically take a walk with me and my camera. If you’re really nervous booking an engagement shoot is a great option at only £250 (and it gives you lots of lovely photos for your invites too). You’ll see how much fun it can be to get your photograph taken by a quirky wedding photographer from Belfast.
Relaxed, honest photographs
I always make sure your photos capture your day in a relaxed and honest way – no taking you away from your guests for hours to pose in a field (unless you really want to of course!) no making you grin at the camera until your faces ache, no cheesy poses and forced romance! We simply find some gorgeous spots with lovely light and get you some stunning relaxed portraits – genuine moments rather than set up ones. I’ll make sure to get you family photos and I’ll get lots of little candid moments during the day so all the details are captured for you. Honest, creative and delightfully cheerful wedding photography!
Sharing Your Images
In a world where everything goes online it’s only right you get to see your images first. I promise to not share any of your images on social media before you see them first. It’s so important to me that the first people to see your photos are the two of you and your friends and family!! I see lots of photographers sharing things right after ceremonies or in advance of sending couples their images and for me that’s spoiling the surprise – it should be you who gets to share the images first not me! All weddings come with a fully downloadable gallery which you can share with friends and family. It’s a private gallery too so nobody can see it unless you invite them to.
digital only, albums or tailor to suit yourselves
Weddings can be super expensive (I know I’ve had one myself) so I try to keep things as reasonable as I can while still providing the best possible images. I give you all your images print ready in a gorgeous boxset. I also include a downloadable online gallery because the joy in photographs really is sharing them and looking back on the memories. Good photographs deserve to be shared so you will get all your photographs from the day. Minus the ones where Aunty Susan’s eyes are closed of course! This means you will have lots of photos to choose from. Generally I send upwards of 500 images in a gallery depending on your wedding size.
Planning your photography
Couples generally want different things from their photography so please get in touch to discuss your plans. I like to chat things through rather than have a one size fits all approach. The most popular coverage is only £1395 for wedding photography in and around Belfast and across Northern Ireland. This gets you coverage from bridal prep until your first dance and family dances. If you’re both getting ready fairly close together I am more than happy to cover both. If this doesn’t suit you can choose second shooter packages starting from as little as £125. This includes all your photographs print ready in a bespoke wooden usb box set with a selection of prints. All weddings include a private gallery with downloadable images you can share with family and friends.
That’s only one option though. Your photography can be totally tailored to suit your day. I cover everything from elopements and tiny intimate ceremonies to weekend long affairs and destination weddings. Just get in touch to discuss it and get a tailored quote! I offer really reasonable rates for destination weddings and only charge travel when I really need to!
I also offer an add on option of stunning linen albums starting from £350. Beautiful hand finished albums with a gorgeous lustre finish made to last for years. Albums can be completely customised to match your colour scheme. You will choose the colour, photos and embossing to make it totally unique. As a gift parent’s albums can be ordered alongside them for only £100 for a set of two. What better way to thank your folks for listening to your wedding chat for the past who knows how long. You can also add on thank you cards, prints – anything you like!
