Shrinking Violet Photography

Candid & Contemporary weddings

Pictures with personality


Candid wedding photography. Contemporary images that catch the real joy, the fun, the antics, the impulsive, the expressions, all the unplanned shenanigans that are going on around you. You’ll still have the swanky mantlepiece photos - but so much more!

You Don’t do awkward posing…So neither do I!





Genuine all their unapologetic glory!

This is the one morning where you’re going to wake up with your nerves shredded, drink bubbles for breakfast and a couple of hours later be transformed into a pair of BobbyDazzlers.It’s a zipwire of a day, a constant stream of huge emotions, candid little moments and narratives involving your family, your friends, your relationships, the very fabric of you. Cheese is for cheesecake, no face-ache photographs. I just want you to be you on your day.

Shrinking Violet …. but no wallflower!

I’m Irish (fierce witty) left handed (fierce messy) self-depreciating (I’m going to have to delete the witty bit) A little shy to begin with, prone to mischief and happiest when behind a camera. I love nothing more than a room full of good humour and laughter and have enough life experience to realise that white wine makes most things better. Red wine definitely doesn’t….My approach to wedding photography mirrors my relationship with my own family and childhood pictures. They’re lifes ‘heirlooms’. The family and friends that you’ve gathered around you on your wedding day are priceless. Overtime the value of these photographs will increase as circumstances change and time passes. The people you love, their PERSONALITIES, antics, dress sence, DANCE MOVES and drinking prowess ARE ALL THAT MATTER. So if you’ve got a sensitive soul, can laugh, cry, throw shapes and plan on making no apology to your sober selves in the morning then you’re definitely my kind of couple and I’d love to shoot your wedding!
