Top Wedding Tip 21 - Getting Dressed

It's the moment you've waited for your whole life, you're getting in to the dress. Allocate time for this. It's is a brides prerogative to be late so don't rush it. Your photographer will want to capture this moment for you and some of the best images of you and your bridesmaids will be at this point. Take your time and don't rush. Most importantly, don't close the door on your photographer.

WAEC Fashion Show Backstage Images

A few weeks back I was asked to photograph backstage at the Waterford Adult Education Centre's final year fashion show. There were some super talented designs on show. I would be tempted if I was sample size. Below are some of my favourite images from back stage.

Runway images were featured in the Waterford News & Star.

Top Wedding Tip 20 - Walking Up The Aisle

I know I know, it's terrifying, those doors open and boom, your confronted with what seems like a mile long aisle and everyone you know and love has turned around to stare at you. Your first instinct is to leg it as fast as you can up that aisle dragging your dad behind you.


Take a deep breath and slowly walk up the aisle. Leave enough space between you and your bridesmaids for your photographer to get the shot.

Enjoy it. Watch for his face as you get to the top. It takes all the will in the world for him not to turn around.

Top Wedding Tip 19 - The Rings

If you know your photographer is not going to see the groom before the main event please have the rings with the bride. This is a photograph that is often forgotten about in the hubub of getting ready but really is a nice one for the album.

Top Tip 18 - Groomsmen gifts

Third week in a row sticking with the guys but I promise there will be something for the ladies next week. The grooms men often get forgotten in all the planning but please bear them in mind. You wouldn't forget about your bridesmaid's gifts so don't forget about the groomsmen, they work just as hard on the day. A hip flask (full or empty) is always a great gift for the guys.

Model Portfolio - Aoife Daly

As well as wedding photography, I also do a lot of portrait photography. Aoife contacted me as she is an aspiring model. She wanted some simple portfolio shots but most importantly she wanted some practice in front of the camera. This is the first in a two part post featuring Aoife's photos. These are the studio shots. What do you think?

Top Tip 17 - Cufflinks

Sticking with the theme from last week, here's another one for the guys. There are a bajillion different kinds of cufflinks out there. Chose ones that suit your personalities and give them as gifts to your grooms men. Anything from lego men to iphones, football clubs to tennis racquets, the world is your oyster.
