Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

I've been a full-time photographer for over 5 years now. Photographing people being people is the best thing ever and I know I'll still be doing it long after I've photographed my last wedding.

I'm married to my best friend, Róisín. Somehow she gets me and I'm lucky I have her. We live in Belfast with our two kids, Dáithí and Isla, in an old townhouse that's got bags of charm (and NO space).

The kids are everything to us. On weekends off, we fuel-up with coffee and take them out adventuring.
