Johann + James | Family portrait Northern Ireland

Between weddings last year, I got to do some family portrait shoots too. I love working with kids, though somehow find it much easier to photograph other people’s than my own, who always want to hide or take my camera.

Johann and James’ crew were brilliant. A gorgeous mix of giggles, in-jokes that only they understood, the odd tear, and bewitching cuteness. The weather was kind so we explored the woods and the beach once we’d taken some simple portraits at home. Even the sun made an appearance right on cue …

Jillian + Ben | Engagement photos Northern Ireland

I love these guys. I did a fine job (probably) of keeping my professional hat on when they told me earlier in the year that they wanted to book for their wedding. But I was cartwheeling in my head.

Before their big day arrived, we found time to squeeze in this pre-wedding shoot at Donaghadee harbour …

2015 | Belfast wedding photographer

wedding photographer northern ireland

Somewhere, someone has their foot flat to the floor. 2016 is already three weeks old and 2015 is speeding away behind us.

It was such a cool year. I got to work with couples I’d been looking forward to photographing for ages, in venues up and down the country. It’s a totally new experience every time. Trying to see each wedding with fresh eyes is important, but couples’ personalities differ so much anyway. Even if I was working in the same venue every week, the weddings would feel and look really different. That’s part of what I love. Getting to know each couple, finding out what they have planned, what their hopes are.

The feedback I’ve received from my couples this year has left me humbled and I’m ever more grateful that I get to do this for a living. I’m excited too about the year ahead. I’m always asking myself “how can I do this better?”, “how can I create images that my couples are going to fall in love with?” Trying out new ideas over the coming months is going to be a thrill.

Thanks for visiting today and best wishes for 2016.
Jonathan

Nadine + Donal | Family photographer Belfast

 
A stone’s throw from Nadine and Donal’s house in East Belfast, is the lovely Stormont Estate. It’s beautiful pretty much any time of the year. Long rows of lime trees line the road up to Stormont House, and off to the sides pathways lead through wooded areas with a wilder feel. It’s perfect for a family walk, even when there’s a photographer tagging along …

Bonnie | Personal portrait shoot

We shot these images for Bonnie at her family’s country cottage, on the shore of Strangford Lough. Bonnie wanted to try a few different looks and we found some lovely evening light, inside and out, to create a suitable mood. The atmosphere was gorgeous, though the storms that have battered the UK this week make the shoot seem an age ago now. Here’s my pick of the images.
