A small world…
Fiona and Kevin came to me from a friend of theirs who’s wedding I had shot, Our inital meeting was in a coffee shop in Blanchardstown where we are both from ,after we had discussed people and places from that area that we knew we got down to taking about their wedding and the pre wedding shoot that I do, “we dont want posed or cheesy photos” I remeber Fiona saying , If I had a euro for everytime somebody said that to me 🙂 ,I think I managed to quell their fears somewhat and came up with these images from the shoot on Dollymount :
Ok so I did get a tad cheesy , But I think it works and I like the images 😉
So along came the wedding day in Ballina and Fiona was getting ready in the beautiful Falcon hotel and It really was a small world as when I arrived I relaised that I was on the same hurling team (once or twice) with her father ,Its always nice shooting a wedding when you know more than the bride and Groom
The lads didn’t disappoint either in getting ready and there was a super hero theme which will feature in a image later on :
After the church I usually make my way to to an agreed point or the hotel with the bride and groom to start their wedding images , Fiona and Kevin had a different idea …..
The thing I was most shocked at with the two above images is that with a jam packed bookies ,money everywhere behind the counter ,they just let me in to take these images …… I must just have one of those faces.
Theres a little lake area beside the castle in Ballina that the couple had suggested was nice and they weren’t wrong
Ok so the final two images came about from the groom as he had a Super Hero theme and as you can see from the images above it was well thought out ,we had discussed at our first meeting that he had an idea with super hero T-shirts under the suits and wanted a photo with them on and this is what we came up with
And then at this point we put the Fiona and the bridesmaids in and came up with an image that I think is brilliant
