LGBT Wedding Photographer
Always delighted to work as an LGBT wedding photographer. It is wonderful to see how far Ireland has progressed in terms of liberty and equality for all. Everyone, everywhere in the world should be free to marry whom they love.
Without a doubt we should definitely be proud to be Irish. Given that we were the first country in the world to to legalise gay marriage by popular vote. This would have been unthinkable in the Ireland of yesteryear.
When I photograph an LGBT wedding it always crosses my mind how nice it is that there are two beautiful brides and two handsome grooms in the pictures. It is like a mirror image.
My Creative Approach To LGBT Weddings
With all wedding I like to photograph them in a natural, calm, artistic and unobtrusive way. People look at their very best when you photograph them in a natural way. I give some ideas and directions but it is minimal.
With a background in photojournalism and art I approach a wedding like a story. After graduating from NCAD I moved to New York for 10 years. Working with The New York Times for 7. Backgrounds are also really important to me in wedding photographs. Our beautiful city provides a beautiful backdrop to a couples wedding photographs.
For the couple’s portraits, I typically bring them for a walk in the surrounding areas. Thus people feel like they are taking a nice walk through Dublin after being married. Not like they are posing for wedding photographs.
The majority of couples who choose me do not like having their photograph taken. I kine to think that people feel comfortable in my presence. Couples tell me that they actually ended up enjoying the experience.
For the family pictures I try to keep these as natural looking as possible. I do this by asking everyone to walk towards the camera. It gives people something to do and makes them smile of their own accord. This idea came to me at the first wedding I ever photographed. To break up the straight line and make the pictures more dynamic. Guests always find it a bit of fun.
Registry Office LGBT Wedding Photography
For LGBT weddings at the Dublin Registry Office I have formulated a beautiful route for wedding photographs. Taking in the banks of the Grand Canal, Georgian Dublin and Merrion Square Park.
Additionally I photograph the group portrait of the guest stand on the Locks crossing the canal. The scene has a painterly quality to it and is an unusual angle. It is also only three minutes from the registry office.
Also the wry eye of Oscar is always a great backdrop for LGBT weddings in Merrion Square Park. I am positive Mr.Wilde is delighted with the Ireland we have become.
Given the current situation I am still able to capture your LGBT wedding beautifully whilst adhering to social distancing protocols. Technically I have to be at least 3 metres from the subject to achieve focus. Since I work in a natural and unobtrusive way I never need to touch or interfere in a scene.
Couples have always been delighted with their LGBT wedding photographs. So this is always the most rewarding part of wedding photography for me. If you like my style please and are looking for an LGBT wedding photographer feel free to call me anytime. My mobile at 087 995 1252. I would love to hear about your wedding plans.
