Photo Session at Phoenix Park - Travel Photographer Dublin Ireland

This Wednesday I was contacted to do mini photo session at Phoenix Park and boy it was full of surprises! First this gorgeous girl comes arrives and (no she's not a model, just naturally beautiful) and she was just the easiest to work with, such a natural!

The other surprise was the weather, if you follow me on Instagram (wait, you don't? You are missing an infinite stories about food, lol! Follow me here) you would know that the weather was kinda crazy! It rained and then stopped, then rained again with sunshine and intense windy in between, but that didn't stop us and we managed to get great images that you can see here. 

If you ever want to get some great portraits of yourself, don't hesitate to drop me a message ;) 

Preview - A+S - Sunny Temple House Wedding- Sligo, Ireland.

Yesterday's wedding was just so good! When they told me they were looking to have an outdoor ceremony in Ireland the first thing I asked was: do you have a plan B? I know that sounds pessimist but being a wedding photographer in Ireland you have that fear of raining built in your system! LOL. 

Luck enough the weather was just beautiful throughout the day and we were able to take some awesome shots and have some awesome ice cream :) 

Here are a few pics containing awesome couples, large and epic bridal party and lots of sun. Hope you enjoy!

A+B Emotional City Hall - Angler's Rest Wedding - Dublin, Ireland

a+b_anglersrest_wedding_livia_figueiredo.jpg

Grab the tissues because this wedding is just amazing. 

Antoinette and Ben met in Seoul while teaching and they instantly feel in love after matching in a online dating website. They lived in Vietnam together before that they endure a long distance relationship which it was a tough one. 

After getting his grandmother ring after a trip to his family in Michigan and knowing he wanted to be with her for the rest of their lives. Sadly no long after their trip they found out that Antoinette had a lump on her breast and she would need to go under treatment in Dublin while he stayed in Vietnam still waiting to propose!

As he says: "Antoinette had started chemotherapy at this stage and had lost most of her hair. I knew I wanted to propose but I didn't know how much energy Antoinette had or how she would be feeling. On a whim, and since she was feeling up to it, we decided to take the ferry to Inishmore. Antoinette was weak but she wanted to rent a tandem bike just like we did in Gyeongju, South Korea. I wanted to get a horse and buggy but she refused. We rode our bike to the other side of the island, to Dún Aonghasa. There, high above the rocks and waves, I asked Antoinette to marry me. She said yes and we've both been giddy and smiling ear to ear ever since. I gave her my grandmother's ring, designed by my grandfather.”

When I met Antoinette we chatted on how planning the wedding whilst in treatment was helping her to keep the energy and the hope, her and Ben actually DIY'ed all the decoration which gave an extra special touch in the whole day. 

At the end their wedding was just so full of energy and love, they had a 1950's wedding themed day and even a tandem bike like they did in South Korea and in their proposal and they drove to the door of Angler's Rest which was just awesome!

Is weddings like these that being a wedding photographer is just a blessing and knowing and sharing stories of couples like Antoinette and Ben it's such a honour.

This wedding was very special because I actually shot the groom's sister wedding before and I knew that they were just great people and to be honest by the end of the day I was certain that not only the groom's family was great but the bride's one as well!

The day was surrounded with laughs and love and I'm dying to share more, specially on our couple portraits at the great surroundings on the Wineport Lodge

Engagement shoot in the streets of Dublin City

When Kelsey contact me she said that she was looking for someone to photograph her and her fiancé Keith, they were coming from Texas and they were looking to have something fun to document their trip. 

A few days after our first chat, Keith contact me separately to ask a recommendation for a makeup artist/hairstylist (made by the talented Niamh) as a surprise for Kelsey and instantly I knew that photographing them would be great. What they end up telling me later that day it's that they were looking to use of the images for their save the date! 

We had a stroll around Dublin and after deciding to not spend so much time at Stephen's Green that it's always so packed with tourists they would be up for knowing a few less touristic spots. 

We finished our session in one of my favourite pubs in Dublin, Kehoes where they have one of the best Guinness in my opinion. 

Hope you enjoy this engagement photoshoot around Dublin.

Last weekend I was invited to check it out The Station House Wedding Fair. 

I actually shot there before and had a great time! Here in Ireland sometimes can be tough to get a great weather but when we do outdoors ceremonies in Ireland are just the best and The Station House Hotel is a great one for that! 

I decided to take a few shots from the even and share with you maybe help out brides that are looking for inspiration for their own outdoor wedding
