Kelly & Brian Wedding – The Armada Hotel Spanish Point

I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing the wedding of Kelly and Brian on Saturday March 1st 2014.  The wedding ceremony was at St Flannan’s Church, Lisdeen County Clare followed by reception at The Armada Hotel Spanish Point.  On the way to the reception the wedding party stopped at Garrihy’s Pub in Moyasta for some refreshments.  The Armada Hotel holds a special place in the couples hearts as it was here that they first met.  Brian’s family made the long trek from his native Canada for the wedding and thoroughly enjoyed the landscape, the people and the celebrations.

Kelly and Brian are a wonderful couple and I wish them every health and happiness in their married lives.

Neil van Nierkerk Workshop II

Hi,

The Neil van Neikerk workshop which was held at the Portmarnock Hotel recently was a wonderful experience.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable day which was packed with useful information and practical sessions.  Neil has a fantastic ability to make learning easy with a relaxed presentation and style that comes from years of experience.  He was accompanied on the day by his assistant Jessica and with beautiful models Roz Purcell and Hannah Devane on hand, we could not ask for more.  We were also very lucky with the weather for the outdoors portrait sessions, and it held dry for the day with a soft light that made for some great shooting.
Neil displayed the on camera flash techniques for which he is justifiably regarded, as well as using video light for dramatic portrait lighting.  The Portmarnock Hotel provided some lovely locations for the sessions and we certainly distracted a lot of The All Ireland Football Final fans when they caught eye of the models.
Thanks especially to Liam Ramsell of Pro Foto Training for brining Neil to Ireland and organising the event so well.  It was amazing value and I could not recommend it highly enough.
I intend posting some shots from the workshop here and on my website in the coming weeks.

Causeway comprehensive School Debs Dance 2011

Hi,

It was another fantastic night photographing the students from Causeway Comprehensive School, Co. Kerry as they enjoyed their debs dance at Ballyroe Heights Hotel, Tralee.  I cant believe how fast another year has passed and that a new group of students are ready to face the world.  It was a wonderful night despite the wind and rain and it certainly did not dampen their enthusiasm.  Ballyroe Heights Hotel is a wonderful location and its always a joy to work there.  Many thanks to the hotel management and staff for their help on the night and to the Principal and Vice Principal of Causeway School for hiring me again to photograph this wonderful night.
Best of luck to the the students for the future.

Siobhan And Pat Wedding

Hi,

I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Siobhan and Pat on Friday, April 29th at Curraheen Church, Tralee, Co. Kerry.  It was my first wedding in this church and it is a wonderful location which I hope to work in again.  There is a beautiful stained glass window that runs the height of the back wall and makes a lovely backdrop for portraits.
Pat owns a wonderful shop in Tralee called Utensils which stocks everything for the cook in your house.  He has a huge range of products available in the shop and online.
Best wishes to them for a wonderful happy life together.
