Looking to capture the magic of West Cork on your wedding day or for your engagement shoot? From Gougane Barra to Inchydoney beach, and beyond, West Cork is the ultimate location for beautiful, timeless and unique wedding photography.
With rolling seas, sandy beaches and lush green forest, the West Cork natural landscape provides a perfectly dramatic backdrop for photos that will always be a little bit unique and different.
However, it’s not all about dramatic backdrops! Your big day will be full of love and laughter with family friends! All of which will be captured by my unobtrusive style. Indeed, you and your guests may not even notice I’m there!
I have worked with hundreds of couples and know what it takes to create perfect wedding photography. And my speciality is to bring elements of my commercial work and fashion photoshoots into all my wedding and engagement photography, so to make each photograph something to treasure.
Contact me today to find out more about my suite of packages which can be tailored for each occasion.
Victoria & Chris
Could you describe your photography style?
I've always loved photography but I decided to turn my passion into my profession about 10 years ago. My main interest has always been people, because each of us is uniquely beautiful. Putting you at ease to get the best possible shots, documenting your emotions, capturing your day as it goes without forcing it is truly my style. I love capturing the essence of everyone and everything I shoot.
What does your booking process look like?
The booking process is simple and straight forward. Just contact me to check if your date is available. If so, I will talk you through the various packages and you can choose the one that suits you best. I will provide a contract, which we'll both sign, and you'll also be required to pay a deposit to secure your date. After that, your wedding photography can be ticked off your "to-do" list. I encourage couples to meet with me in advance of your big day. This is to help us connect and simply to get to know each other and for me to get a better idea of what you're looking for from your photos.
Do you travel for weddings and is there any additional charge for travelling?
Yes! I do travel and regularly cover destination weddings and absolutely love them. I do charge additional fees to cover my travel expenses but this is just to cover costs - I don't profit from travel expenses. If you require me to photograph your reception, there will also be a charge for accommodation, which I'm happy for you to arrange if you can get a better deal. Travel and accommodation costs must also be covered for international weddings.
How long until we get to see our wedding photographs?
The average wait is around six weeks, depending on the time of year. You will get an email with a link to your private online gallery where you can view and download your high resolution images. Depending on your chosen package, you will also receive an USB stick later on.
Do you offer wedding albums?
The wedding albums I offer are of the highest quality, with silk pages and many options for a cover, including leather and fabric. I believe in supporting small businesses with traditions. The album provider I am lucky to source my albums from has been making albums for generations and works only with professional photographers. The design process for your album begins after your complete gallery is delivered to you. You can pick your favourite images and you will get to see an album design before it's sent for printing. We can make changes and adjustments and once you're happy, your album will be sent for printing. If you wish to see and touch one of our gorgeous bespoke wedding album samples, I always have them with me for our first meeting, or you can pop into my studio in Clonakilty.
Do you require a deposit and when is the balance due?
Yes, to ensure your date is secured, a 50% deposit is required along with a signed wedding contract. The balance is due not later than two weeks before your wedding day.
Are you insured?
Absolutely, I have both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance.
