“We are what we believe we are.”  CS Lewis   


I love photographing people.  Capturing moments.  Recording memories.  The romantic little look that everyone else missed.  The love between the groom and his bride.  The pride of the Father as he walks his only daughter down the aisle.  The smiles.  The laughs.  The tears of joy.  All of these moments are what makes your wedding day so special.  Your wedding photography is an investment in love.  An investment in life.

Elegant.  Stylish.  Romantic.


Our range of contemporary wedding images are shot in a storybook style, recording your special day as it happens. I allow the day to flow naturally, capturing all the emotion and fun in an unobtrusive manner, as well as spending time alone with the Bride and Groom, capturing those romantic moments. I also take a selection of the more traditional, posed shots of family and friends, which are another important and beautiful element of your wedding album. Time is also spent capturing all those little details – the things that might be so easily overlooked, but that make the day truly unique, and unmistakably yours.

Our selection of exquisite handmade Australian albums are custom designed to ensure that your memories remain perfectly presented and preserved for a lifetime. Each album is designed exclusively around the images you choose.

There’s nothing I love more than shooting weddings.  Capturing the love between a groom and his bride.  Is there anything more special?

Currently based just outside Ballymena in Northern Ireland, I love shooting destination weddings, having experience shooting throughout the UK & Ireland, Germany, Switzerland & the Canary Islands.  I will gladly hop on a plane and travel anywhere in the world to capture your special day.  My passport is valid and always ready for the next adventure.

Psalm 19

I’ve just returned from a super relaxing holiday on the North Coast.  It’s been an extremely busy year so far and so it was great to take time out and chill for a week.  We were staying in a lovely holiday cottage right at the water’s edge, overlooking Portstewart Strand.  I brought the camera along just in case as we had a prime view looking out to sea.  Although this was a holiday, I still managed a few sunsets, as I literally was able to stand with the patio doors open and shoot as I pleased!     This shot was taken just a few feet away from our cottage.  I had been reminded earlier that day of some amazing words from Psalm 19, which I think (for me anyway) sums up this image perfectly.  These are from the Message translation.   1-2 God’s glory is on tour in the skies,     God-craft on exhibit across the horizon. Madame Day holds classes every morning,     Professor Night lectures each evening. 3-4 Their words aren’t heard,     their voices aren’t recorded, But their silence fills the earth:     unspoken truth is spoken everywhere. 4-5 God makes a huge dome     for the sun—a superdome! The morning sun’s a new husband     leaping from his honeymoon bed, The daybreaking sun an athlete     racing to the tape. 6 That’s how God’s Word vaults across the skies     from sunrise to sunset, Melting ice, scorching deserts,     warming hearts to faith. 7-9 The revelation of God is whole     and pulls our lives together. The signposts of God are clear     and point out the right road. The life-maps of God are right,     showing the way to joy. The directions of God are plain     and easy... read more

Scouting A Location

One of the frustrating things about landscape photography (apart from the weather!), can be knowing when to head out and where to head to.  One of the things I find extremely useful when planning a trip is an App called The Photographer’s Ephemeris. This App tells me exactly where the sun is going to be at anytime of the day and in any location I choose.  You can imagine how useful this is when deciding on your plan of attack as there are certain locations that can only be photographed at certain times of the year.  Preparation is key to a good landscape photo! I was out filming with the the Engage Live team a few weeks back for an upcoming Landscape Photography workshop and we visited a spot along the Causeway cliff path.  I had scouted the location and was there in the late afternoon to shoot some long exposures with the LEE Little & Big Stoppers.  Being able to use the TPE App on my iPhone, I then planned to revisit this exact same location, at both sunrise and sunset.  The three different images are all shown below.  You can see how different they all are because of the time of day I visited.  But on each visit, I knew exactly where the sun was going to be and used this to my advantage. So, next time you plan to head out with your camera, make a conscious decision to think about your location and the position of the sun. This is also one of the many topics I’ll be covering on my full day Landscape Photography workshops.  If you fancy joining me, then... read more
