Rebekah and Stuart e-shoot

“The event of falling in love is of such a nature that we are right to reject as intolerable the idea that it should be transitory. In one high bound it has overleaped the massive of our selfhood; it has made appetite itself altruistic, tossed personal happiness aside as a triviality and planted the interests of another in the centre of our being. Spontaneously and without effort ....” 
C. S. Lewis

These two did what they were meant to do.  They met and fell in love.  They couldn't stop it.  

In the spring at the Frock Around the Clock Vintage wedding fair I ran a competition offering a free e-shoot.  These two were the winners.  As they were finishing their final year at Stranmillis College we put off the shoot for a few months.  When we met up to arrange the shoot and they suggested having it in Stranmillis grounds I was a bit hesitant.  It didn't immediately make me think of an obvious location but I am always happy to give things ago.  Oh how wrong was I.  What a brilliant spot.  

We were blessed with a lovely evening and the company of the odd squirrel.  These two were great and happy to go with whatever I suggested.  I always tell couples to just pretend I am not there and that they are just on a romantic walk.  You can tell from these images that's exactly what happened in this shoot.

The shoot was also featured on the fantastic Whispering Willow blog.  Be sure and check it out.

About me

Memories are made with the click of the shutter. a passing moment is captured in that split second.

Our lives are a journey full of learning and experiences. Some things we chose to do other things we have no control over. People come into our lives and change them forever. They are part of our learning and experiences.

Memories of those times and faces fade with age. That's why making photographs is so important. Photographs capture those moments for ages to come. Words often fail to truly describe those memories. Photographs contain life.

Since my childhood I have loved looking at photographs. Getting

lost in the details as they can take me to places I have never been before.

Growing up hours would have been spent daydreaming about the places

discovered through them. Taking photographs has become more a part of

my life with each passing year.

I want people to get lost in my photographs the way I did as a child. When they look at the images the memories should come flooding back for them. They should tell a story for anybody who looks at the images. It as a great honour to be allowed into people’s lives on such special

days and asked to capture the memories for them.

With a blend of documentary, traditional, & commercial/alternative style wedding photography giving every bride & groom the very best images from their day.

I live in Newtownards, have been blessed with a family and have 3 rather lively kids

to keep me busy. My faith is the backbone of this business. To do

something you love is great and is something to thank God for.
