Hi there! We’re Les & Emily, partners in life and partners as a wedding photography team here in Ireland. We work together. We travel together. We dream together.
We believe the best thing for our couples is to make their experience the very best it can be.
We firmly believe your story is unique to you both, you should not be treated as ‘just another couple’ or ‘just another wedding’. Our goal is to provide you with high quality images that tell your story, distinguished by a memorable experience to make your wedding day surpass your expectations. We are passionate about providing you with a service as well as a physical and timeless memory of the most wonderful and beautiful day of your life, your wedding day.
Our style incorporates 4 elements, all of which we keep fun, relaxed and lighthearted.
Traditional - “These photos will persevere throughout the years and won’t go out of style, it’s very simplistic, and nothing crazy, but they still look good 50 to 60 years later.”
Photojournalistic - Candid and documentary-style photographs make for some of the most heartfelt and memorable images. They let the moments unfold naturally, then snap away, recording the magic as it happens.
Editorial/Stylised - Editorial images are much more posed, almost like a fashion magazine. Editorial wedding photography has specific elements that differentiate it from the rest. This style of photography is heavily based on creating photographs that look extraordinary.
Plandid (Planned Candid) - This is a crossover of photojournalistic and editorial styles, for those moments that take some planning but look completely natural.
