I’ve had a keen interest in photography since my childhood. Photography remained a big part of what I did and what inspired me.

When I was asked by friends to shoot their wedding in Edinburgh I jumped at the chance. I enjoyed myself so much that this became the starting point of my career.

Ten + years later...

It’s hard to believe, but that first wedding was way back in 2005! After that first wedding, things started to snowball. I got asked by friends to do weddings, and then friends of friends. Word soon got around! After a while I decided to concentrate on wedding photography full time. More recently, I’ve expanded into portrait and commercial photography. I opened our Belfast studio in 2011 and have since welcomed many families through the door. In 2012 I won the PPANI Portrait Photographer of the Year. The following year I won the 2013 Wedding Album and Reportage Photographer of the year. While awards are lovely, I take as much pride in delivering lovely images, lasting memories and a great service to my customers.

In 2016 I expanded the studio space to two floors, adding a dedicated photography space and changing room. Stacey is now on board full time specialising in dogs and newborns.

Meet the team


Drinks way too much coffee, husband to the lovely Arlene, dad to Eva and Ben - unhealthy obsessions with Formula One, VW Camper Vans and Skoda Octavias (weird I know!). Takes photographs and loves it. Peter specialises in weddings and families.


Stacey specialises in Pet and newborn photography. She is a dog lover - living with several! Indeed, photographing pets and babies doesn't feel like work at all for Stacey! She also keeps Peter sane by managing portraiture edits and orders and delivering a great service to our customers.
