2018 was an amazing year for Hello Sugar & my personal life. I photographed 20 stunning weddings, travelled, laughed, made new friends, organised some stunning editorials, photographed multiple engagements, upgraded gear, worked hard on each and every task I set my mind to. Here’s a scrumptious slideshow that sums it all up - all the highs, moments & mountains, romantic weddings, all of my couples, travels, tears and all the beauty. A happy slideshow, which I’m looking forward to watching again by the end of 2019 to see the amazing way my style and skills have come through.Read More
Melissa & Stephen got married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Dark Hedges Estate, which is located right next to the famous tourist attraction ‘Dark Hedges’. I loved the idea of incorporating their personalities and lifestyle into the wedding day - they opted for an outdoor ceremony with fresh bale’s of hay as a seating, long dinner tables and lush flowers. I love Northern Irish farmer’s weddings! If you remember my last year’s farmer’s wedding of Amanda & Chris you will remember that it’s always a super relaxed wedding day, with no fuss, no stress and plenty of fun. I promise you, they are all like this! Absolutely loved the natural country decor and clean, modern & airy feel of this wedding.Read More
Straight from the sunny Provence and the love story of Lucy & Hayden, coming to you today with this utterly beautiful and adventurous engagement shoot in Northern Ireland. I previously mentioned how I love Causeway Coast and wrote a special blog post talking about all the places to elope in N Ireland. I was beyond excited to hear Melissa & Stephen, who live in Armoy - right next to the Dark Hedges, wanted to have their engagement photos at the beach. The obvious choice was Whiterocks near Portrush! Not only because I photographed another engagement there a year ago and I know all the places for the best light, but also because of the sunny weather forecast. Last time we had a completely different weather, and I wanted to make the most of our adventure day in the sun. I thrive in the sunshine and love bright and airy photos.
Melissa & Stephen brought their tiny dog, which is always a good idea when comes to couples photoshoots. The attention was divided and they could just relax and take a good walk - or run, straight into the cold water!Read More
When I first arrived in Northern Ireland in 2014 to study Politics & Journalism I signed up for a Photo Society at Queens University. I had a big passion for photography and wanted to learn and improve my style. For the next couple of months, I travelled the coast of Northern Ireland nearly every weekend with friends I met at the society. Then with friends who visited me here. Then with my boyfriend Neil, whom I also met at the photo society. Little did I know, four years later my love for Northern Ireland will continue to grow and my love for photography.. well, it will reach the next level. It will become my lifestyle, my daily bread, my ups and downs (mostly ups tho!) and I'll be able to share with you my puppy love photos and videos of Northern Ireland I took nearly 4 years ago.
If you're planning an engagement shoot or an elopement in Northern Ireland - or simply want to walk down memory lane with me, here are some of my absolute favourite locations.
