I met them before the day and what striked me, was an honest feeling between them and super positive energy that was floating around us. Day was special, in beautiful location in picturesque Ireland. Only the closest family and friends attended the day (14 in total) which made for very intimate setting. Apart from beautiful vows, positive energy, relaxed day, we managed to to create beautiful imagery with very personal and honest emotions.

It took place in one of the most famous castle in Ireland (Trim castle) and that day completely changed how I perceived Wedding Photography.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?The biggest two elements I think are crucial for selecting your Wedding Photographer is:

Why do you think people hire you?Haven't a clue :P On a serious note, I'm always positive, open and honest and try to be more of a friend rather than a professional making a living. Showing a bit of myself and letting couple to unfold a bit of their personalities helps me to keep good contact.
