A Reminder

Just a wee reminder that we have moved from this blog to a new one and you can find it just by clicking here. We don’t want you to miss out on any photographs like our latest engagement session with Chantelle and Mark

:) 

The Campbells Family Session

This wee session has been sitting on the hardrives for a while now, it was a special session a gift for and completed on, Mothers day. We got up early to go meet this family, and seriously, I was not expecting them to all be so flipping good looking.

These three girls, are so lucky to have such lovely parents, who support them in their dreams. When talking to the girls, Emma has a real interest in photography, whilst studying at university in a totally different area. Her parents are 100% behind her in what she wants to do which is something that you don’t see all the time. I am lucky enough to have had parents who just wanted my sisters and I to be really happy and follow our dreams, so it was just nice to see that happening within this family.

The girls surprised their mum with this session, and I have heard nothing but good things from her about the photographs, so well done girls. I think this was a really great present.

Three beautiful sisters, two of them twins, and not only are they lovely on the outside, they are really great girls with lovely friendly, welcoming personalities. With so many photographers around at the minute, we feel privileged that the girls chose us to create these special memories for them… Thank you!! <3

Keith&Bonita - Titantic Quarter Engagement

This engagement session was planned for quite a while before the new Titanic building was finished, so how coincidental that we would have arranged it for the opening date of the building. So we didn’t happen to get in close to the new building, but in actual fact, where the real Titanic Quarter lies is not in a new building. It is the buildings surrounding it that are steeped in history.

Keith&Bonita live in Belfast and they love the city, so they wanted to go to one of the most iconic areas for their engagement session. I am so happy that we did this, it is something that is beautiful and full of love, with a landscape a little different to our usual settings. We hope you both love these little images, and even though your new apartment doesn’t have a view of Harland and Wolf, these little photos will hopefully bring all the Belfast love you need. We had such a great time with you both, we are very much looking forward to your wedding in July <3

Lindsay&Grace

It seems an awfully long time ago that I jetted off to London by myself to shoot an engagement session with Lindsay and Grace. They had the idea, that as they both live in London that it might be nice to have their engagement session there. A little reflection of who they both are, and what they love about London. You will see from the session it is a lot of the main sights in London that we visited, including a very recognisable bridge for those of you who watch the apprentice :)

Blogging this session now is quite apt as we are heading off to London on Friday again, to shoot a wedding of a wonderful couple from here but who have set up home in the big city. (Karen&Gypo we cannot wait!)

We have been working alongside Lindsay&Grace since the engagement session and we cannot believe it is only 16 days until their wedding.. We are really looking forward to it as we know some of the little secrets that lie ahead for all the guests already. It is sure to be an amazing day….

An extra special thank you to my buddy Ben who joined me on this excursion and allowed me to stay at his house. As I had no idea where I was going, he got up super early along with me at 6am just to pretty much hold bags and coats and follow us around. He was however, rewarded with some yummy food. Thanks Ben!!

Stephen&Sarah

So folks, we are now back into the office for a couple of days before whisking off to London to photography our friends wedding. We were out since last Friday shooting weddings, so now is your perfect time to give us a wee shout if you need anything before we head away for the weekend. We honestly had such a great time at all our weddings over the last week. They were honestly just so relaxed and we got on with you all so so well, which we never doubted. We hope you all have safe honeymoon trips together, and can’t wait to share your photographs with you when you all return. I have managed to gather a few photographs from a recent engagement session with Sarah&Stephen. Their wedding is in May, so not long to go now. We love these engagement sessions as they allow us to have time with you before your wedding, to show you that there is nothing to worry about and this is exactly what this session did for Stephen who was dreading the photographs. Honestly, when I look through these, some of them are definitely print worthy for our office. We got the perfect weather and when there is chemistry between a couple, there is little else we need to do.

Thanks so much for spending an hour with us, we hope you both love these images and we are really looking forward to your big day. A little secret, the last image is one of my favourite I have ever taken…<3

Hayley Joy

There is no bigger compliment than being asked to photograph a newborn baby. These memories are for a lifetime. So when Vicky asked us to take photographs of her first wee baby little Hayley, we were very very excited. I think the photographs do the talking, how much Victoria&Rick absolutely dote on her, and I don’t want to spoil that by gushing too much.

Vick&Rick you know we think the world of you guys, you are so genuine, and we hope you treasure these wee photos forever, and that we can continue to record your family grow in the future… <3

"Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter.  In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.  ~Joseph Addison"

"A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."

Sue&Stephen - Engagement

So here we have Sue&Stephen making their way onto the blog…

This is the most beautiful beach in Northern Ireland, *that I have found so far* I know it will be a lot of other peoples too, and for Sue and Stephen is actually where they got engaged.  Stephen cleverly tricked Sue into going for a walk on Whitepark Bay one evening with her friend. Little did she know he was lurking somewhat like a stalker in the dunes, awaiting her arrival, to give her the best gift ever. A ring he had made personally for her, something which you can’t buy in just any old jewellers. And of course, with the gift of a ring, he needed an answer in exchange, which was obviously YES!

These two were telling me about how they don’t have many photographs together. A story I hear far too often. So we approached the shoot with a nervous little Sue, and from there we created this. There are a few of these images, I would love to have made up and framed, just love the light and of course, how Sue&Stephen were in front of the camera, would have put some of our best clients to shame ;) Ha! Just kidding!

But enough of me, more of the photographs, we hope you enjoy this moody beautiful location…

 

Thanks Sue&Stephen, we had a great time with you and cannot wait until your wedding, we just know it will be a treat already!!

Maria&Christopher - Wedding 2nd Half

So it is the 23rd of March and it is Rickys birthday, I had this little blog sitting to go yesterday but we were in a mad rush to get away to have a little gathering with Rickys friends as we are busy out shooting all weekend (the usual for most photographers).

Before I talk about the wedding I thought I would show Ricky a little bit of love, this business is more often represented by me through the blog and Facebook, but it could be easy to forget that Ricky plays a big part as he often lets himself hide in the background. He is a great photographer, in actual fact he has taken some of my favourite TEN21 photographs, which you can see if you even pop into the office. He does all the album work, and he helped his dad build the best desk in the world in the office. He is a very talented drummer, and that would be his dream job. Don’t get me wrong he loves taking photographs, but drumming is his “thing”. If anyone wants him in their band or to bang some drums, let him know, any excuse.He might not be the most vocal but he is kind hearted and I don’t know any one who doesn’t like him. Our brides all tend to just think he’s great and of course the groom and his men, never fail to half a laugh with Ricky. He’s just the wee all rounder. Happy Birthday Ricky.

Anyway back to what this blog is all about, some photographs. The follow up to the morning and ceremony from Maria&Christophers wedding. This was our first wedding this year, and it what a good looking bunch to be taking photo. As usual it was raining so we decided we would stop off at Castle Coole and it was so worth it. What a beautiful location to shoot. If every venue had something like this we could manage the bad weather so well and still have natural light for photographs outside in the shelter. Wishful thinking…

We had met Maria not too long before her big day, she came across so quiet when she came to meet us, so on the big day I was not expecting her to be so funny and outgoing. Putting people in their place and making sure everyone looked perfect. She even had time to squeeze in a little PC Plod walk shouting “allllriiight guvnaaa” which I honestly can say we were not prepared for at all so it made Ricky and I laugh a hell of a lot. She is the picture of perfection and her down to earth nature really made our job so much easier.

Moving along into the evening, we weren’t expecting it, but Maria&Christopher, were welcomed into their reception as Mr&Mrs to the sound of “another one bites the dust”. This definitely put everyone in a good mood and just reflected the fun that was yet to come in the evening. Maria is a very successful Irish Dancer, she toured with Riverdance, so it was only right that she would provide some entertainment in the evening for the guests with the kids from the dancing school. We weren’t going anywhere and stayed until the bitter end to witness a bride doing a wee jig and a bit of tap dancing in her dress. Maria pulled it off, she was so happy and all the guests just loved it, as did we.

Thanks for choosing us to document your wedding day, we really had such a great day, and as our first wedding of 2012, we hope we did you proud :)

Colin&Victoria Engagement

We met Victoria and Colin after a lot of confusion about which part of Helens Bay to meet at. Eventually we found them and it was all worth it to meet the cutest little basset hound called Sherlock. 

This wee session was short and sweet, and although the sun looks warm, it was another deceivingly cold day. You can’t really go wrong down round Crawfordsburn, it always looks beautiful even if it is raining. But beware, do not go here unless you have a dog, you totally won’t fit in… :)

It must be a real bummer, when you are sniffing and snuffling around and your ears fall into a puddle….

Such a wee cutie, never stops looking so sad, but he is the most happy wee pup…

We are very much looking forward to Victoria and Colins wedding in April this year. Here’s hoping for some much anticipated sunshine… <3
