After Lisa & Andrew’s engagement session back in October and a couple of date changes, they finally were able to tie the knot in the Crawfordsburn Inn. The day was great from start to finish. I started with Andrew at their country home where his brother met us, just flying home for 6 hours from London in the middle of a pandemic. That’s effort right there! The rest of the day had laughs, sparkles, a lot of plants and a […]
Back in August, after lockdown had lifted, I got to photograph these two get married. Once again, everyone here was filled with joy and excitement for Sarah and Ruairi as they got to celebrate their marriage. The evening was fantastic. We were up on a balcony, and I couldn’t resist getting low on the ground in the middle of Belfast and lighting them up from across the road, pushing the Profoto lights to their limit on distance they would work.

The first of two shoots with Morrow Communications for their campaign with Ards and North Down Council to get people traveling again during the relaxation of the rules brought in following the world-wide pandemic. The brief was to create beautiful images showing people out for a walk, enjoying themselves, to then be used on billboards around Northern Ireland.
2020 has been tough. Especially for people who have had weddings cancelled and postponed. There have been many. It really was third time lucky for Rebecca & Jordan with their date. They couldn’t have asked for better weather. I mean, the days surrounding it were awful. But things came together beautifully. They were stunning, the weather was stunning, the venue was stunning. They really lucked out with their special day and it really was an absolute joy to photograph it all! […]
I got to hang out with Lisa in her amazing home-fitness studio where she live streams classes to her clients during the pandemic. The purpose-built area is perfect for all those looking to shed some post-lockdown weight, when we get the chance. This was a really fun, chilled out shoot to get some promo photos for Lisa to advertise her services online. Lisa is awesome. Check out her page here.

Being a world-class university, Queen’s often gets world leaders and high profile guests on campus to speak at events and celebrations. This week, we had Secretary Hillary Clinton over to receive an honorary graduate degree for Doctor of Laws. I was one of a couple of photographers allowed to photograph her time at the university. It’s always exciting to see your photo used somewhere, but when it makes the front page of the newspaper, that’s pretty damn cool. JEREMY CORBYN Jeremy […]

The service then kicked off in the Phantom Room, then […]
