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.

The story so far...

  • 2005 - First wedding in Scotland

  • 2008 - Our first wedding fayre and 41 weddings booked. I also joined the PPANI in 2008.

  • 2010 - 71 weddings (way too many - I now do a way more sensible number and love each one!)

  • 2011 - Moved from Carrickfergus and opened our Belfast based studio.

  • 2012 - Won the PPANI Portrait Photographer of the Year. Wohoo!

  • 2013 - 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.
