Your wedding day soundtrack – which songs did you use? Feel free to add others if not prompted below.
Ceremony processionals/recessionals: Pachelbel canon in D for the processional, The Sound of Silence (piano/violin version) for the lighting of the candles, Hallelujah (piano/violin version) for signing of the register, A Thousand years (piano/violin version) for the recessional
First Dance: Dance me to the End of Love by Leonard Cohen
Tell about your love story! How did you meet? What makes your mate a perfect match? How was the question popped?
We met at a 21st birthday party and were together for 8 years before Joe proposed in front of both our families at a barbeque at my parents house.
Describe your wedding planning process. How long were you engaged? Who helped plan? Did you hire a planner? What planning tools did you use? What turned out to be your best decision surrounding the big day?
We were engaged for just over a year, both of our families and the bridal party helped with the planning and preparation, contributing to all the home made bits especially like the cake, the invitations, place settings, favours etc
Recap your big day for me. What made you laugh? What made you cry? What were the most memorable moments? What unexpected things happened that weren’t planned for?
The speeches were not too long and very entertaining, also Joe jumping ahead to the kiss during the ceremony before he was supposed to – I couldn’t stop laughing for 10 minutes! There were so many memorable moments that I couldn’t even begin to chose one. It was wonderful from the very begining to the very end, from getting ready and having brunch with the girls in the morning, to dancing to the fantastic band at the reception.
What about the details? What was your vision/theme? How did you bring it to life?
My vision was of a largely home-crafted, relaxed and comfortable day, without worrying too much about the little things and if everything didn’t go exactly as planned. It worked out brilliantly! The guests really seemed to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and it made life much easier for me.
What’s the best advice you can give a bride and groom planning their wedding?
Don’t let it stress you out or you won’t enjoy your day, which is the most important thing.
What do you look forward to most as Mr. & Mrs.?
Settling down and starting a family
What has surprised you most during the first few months of marriage?
Nothing, life is exactly as it was before except that I keep having to remind myself to use my married name!

Fine Art Wedding Album

2017_11_19_048622

Do you remember when you printed your photos last time? I’m sure 90% of you will answer ”Oh please, do not step on a wound”.

The printed image is becoming a rarity and your hard drive with your images is dusting in a drawer. What will happen if your hard drive (CD, phone etc) becomes unreadable? Will you feel guilty of not printing your images? One day your children and grandchildren will want to see photographs to look at you, to look what you wore and what hairstyle you had. And you will have nothing to show…

I know I’m guilty too. It is already 7 months since my oldest daughter had her First Holy Communion and I never got a time to print images. But I will do it  because I know how important it will be for my child and her future family!

Today I would like to show you one of my wedding albums.

Wedding album is exactly like a story book. You can re-live it again, again and again.

All my fine art wedding albums are printed on museum-quality, fine art paper. I was truly blown away by the quality of these albums the first time I held. It was 6 years ago! And I never was disappointed. Each of my albums are personally designed by me. The process is pretty simple: once you’ve decided on your preferred cover and number of spreads, I’ll work with you to select the images that best tell your story. After I send you the initial spreads, you can review and alter each layout adding or subtracting images and making comments along the way.

There are few cover options to choose from: eco-leather, fabric or paper. You have a choise  of text, font and embossing.

Here is an example of white eco-leather with a photo on a cover photo album and USB memory stick, both packed in a beautiful album matching box.

Lifestyle Newborn Session Ireland | Baby Justin

To get a call from the family, who are my clients for the past … 5 years it is always a big pleasure for me. But to get a call, saying ”We’ve got a baby” it is even bigger pleasure! And that feeling… When you come to clients home for the lifestyle newborn photo session, and first thing which you hear from 4 years old boy is ”You know, I’ve got a small baby”  – your face smiles like you’ve got baby yourself and your eyes sparkle like stars in the night sky.

001_BabyJustin061_BabyJustin

After long chat with ”big brother” finally I am allowed to see his ”little baby”. I can’t describe the joy in Oscar’s eyes. Please meet them:

003_BabyJustin004_BabyJustin006_BabyJustin

And of course please meet mummy and daddy! So from now on – a beautiful family of 4! (if we won’t count fishes in a fish tank).007_BabyJustin

010_BabyJustin016_BabyJustin029_BabyJustin025_BabyJustin015_BabyJustin

In between the brakes, when baby was fed, they had a time together – daddy and his big boy:

Some of you, who follows my work noticed, that I’m moving to lifestyle newborn photography. Yes, I am. But I do not say, I don’t do posing shoots. I still do. A bit less and a bit more natural, without crazy amount of props, which in my opinion are hiding the beauty of a baby:
