Katie's Tips - Tip 2

You're only going to get married once, right? So you can be forgiven for not knowing the run of things. One of the most important things is to schedule your day. It is so important to schedule time for wedding portraits of just the two of you, these are photographs that you will treasure for years to come. It is especially important to schedule these portraits if you are getting married in Winter monts as the light fades a lot earlier than in the Summer. Make sure to discuss the schedule with your photographer before finalising and ensure that all suppliers on the day know the lay of the land. This will ensure a hassle free day for all involved.

Katie's Tips - Tip 1

Sit down with your photographer before the wedding and outline what photographs you want taken on the day and what ones you definitely don't want to do. A handy tip is to assign someone outside of the bridal party and not a family member who knows everyone who needs to be around for formal portraits at the venue. They can be responsible for rounding up the troops leaving you free to enjoy the day. It will also reduce the photo taking time leaving you even more time to enjoy yourself.

Ciara & Jerome, Aug 2012, Portlaw & Faithlegg House Hotel, Co. Waterford

Ciara and Jerome are by far the most laid back couple I have had the pleasure of photographing. They booked me six weeks before the wedding date! Can you imagine? I have had couples book me three years in advance.

Ciara and Jerome met on their first day in Mary Immaculate on their quest to become teachers and have been together ever since. After a lot of house moving, including a stint in Ciara's parents house the two finally moved in to their gorgeous country home just outside the town of Portlaw.

The one stipulation that Ciara and Jerome had for their big day was that we include their animals in the photos. Fine I said... until I realised how many animals they have.

We had so much fun on the day and I think it shows in the photos.
