Laura

I am a photographer living in Cobh, Co. Cork, Ireland. Born and raised by the sea and country side, I was fortunate enough to grow up amidst spectacular scenery. That and with an innate artistic view to everything in life, I developed a passion for photography.

I originally studied Interior Architecture and Lighting Design in Cork Institute of Technology. Before the recession in 2008, that seems like a life time ago, I was an Interior Lighting Designer for domestic, commercial and retail projects. You may have seen some of my work in many of Corks night life spots, restaurants or at the award winning lighting design at Rocky Island crematorium. At that time, I did not think that the skills I gained over the years creating, designing and illuminating architectural spaces would be the first step in following the light to photography.

I truly enjoy photographing and capturing the emotion people display and the connection they have with each other. The best photographs I have shot are when people forget the camera is there. The best way I find in achieving that is a balance between making people feel at ease by connecting with them and by fading into the background of the event.

I reckon I was born 5 years too early to appreciate when I was growing up how technology could be used to allow people enjoy photography and share their photos with friends and family at ease, almost instantly. None the less in my youth I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Nokia N95, a camera phone with a Flash!, this was rare in 2007, it was 3 years before an IPhone had a camera flash. “Who made that camera and who gave it to that man?!” cried my best friend as everything and everywhere was now in reach form my pocket. The Nokia N95 travelled with me from Dublin to London, Singapore, Japan, New Zealand, Los Angles to somehow living on the island of Cobh County Cork. Always capturing moments and always sharing photos. I am constantly snapping, recording and being creative, documenting my and the people’s around me memories.

Weddings were therefore a natural fit for using my photography skills and knowledge of technology. Allowing you to have access to all of your photos, allowing you to share your photos in formats you prefer, in secure methods.

You can really tell when someone has put their heart and their soul into expressing their love, in front of their world on their wedding day. It is hard not to watch and be in awe, record it in your brain (and not your camera) and let emotions grab you but as wedding photographers we love capturing those moments. Those emotions fly into the camera lens, photographing them is a great experience. That’s not to say those who are more conservative in their own approach are any less of an experience, it is their own way, and that comes across, when you do it your own way and the joy shines through, in all light.

We want to help you have your special day how you envisioned it.
