Yay! It’s Friday! 🙂 Loving… being at The Societies Convention in London this week. I got to meet some amazing photographers, attended some interesting seminars and generally had a ball. I didn’t win in my category for Photographer of the Year (all together now – awwwwww!) but as I said at the time I was…Details
Donna & Graham got married on a lovely crisp day in December. Despite the weather it was a warm wedding with both families being very welcoming and friendly. They were married in the Holy Trinity Abbey Church in Adare. Afterwards we walked across to the park and got some photographs of the bridal party. Unfortunately the park doesn’t look quite as good in the depths of Winter as it does during the Summer months, but by cleverly picking nice spots here and there we were able to get a great range of images.
The reception was in the Lakeside Hotel in Killaloe. Donna & Graham really put their stamp on their day with little personal touches along the way.
Things I loved about Donna & Graham’s wedding:
- The contrasting red and blue flowers
- Donna and Graham’s relaxed approach to the day
- The speeches, which were the perfect blend of emotion and humour
- Having a Garda motorcycle available to photograph
- Their wedding cake topping
- The fun on the dance floor – you can’t beat a bit of Elvis impersonation!

It’s Friday which can only mean one thing! Another loving and laughing.. Loving… being in London this week! I’m here for a photography convention but I came a few days early so I would have time to explore the city a little and also meet up with friends. I’ve had a great time so far…Details
Here it is! My favourite wedding photographs of 2012. It was almost impossible to narrow them down, but I’ve managed to squeeze a full year into just over 9 minutes. The photographs follow the course of a typical wedding starting with the preparations and finishing with the dancefloor madness!
Which photograph is your favourite?

I just got a delivery of wedding albums from some hard working elves so I’m on my way to visit some happy newlyweds.
I’ll write a little review of 2012 soon, but for now I just want to wish you a happy Christmas filled with fun, family and friends. 🙂
Wow. I just got word that the panel of judges in the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) have nominated me for Photographer of the Year for my photograph of Grand Central on Thanksgiving. The SWPP is a worldwide association of photographers so to be chosen from among all of the great photographs taken…Details
Back in June I had an opportunity to photograph Limerick band Parliament Square in the recording studio while they were working on their new material. It was a great couple of hours, with an excellent band in a very cool location. Because they were busy recording I was mostly in ninja mode capturing some behind the scenes photographs, but I did get a few minutes with each of the band to create the image below:
Considering I only had about 5 minutes with each of the membersDetails
This time last year I was lucky enough to be in New York with my wife, tucking into some deep fried turkey, sweet potatoes and other delights expertly prepared by my sister-in-law and her family. It was a lovely experience. In the days leading up to thanksgiving we spent a few days exploring New York City. Here’s a little taster…
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t what we expected from the sunny New York in the movies. It rained for most of the time we were in the city. This limited our adventures aDetails
Last week I blogged about the release of the debut album from Socks in the Frying Pan which I photographed and designed. It was a great night with a huge turnout and hopefully it’s the start of something amazing for the guys. This week it’s the turn of the Purple Pencil, a book of poetry…Details
