SHRINKING VIOLET PHOTOGRAPHY
Hi I’m Lou. I do fun and relaxed candid wedding photography. I could wax lyrical about my style and use words such as non-traditional, alternative, documentary and reportage - but essentially I call it the leaving you alone approach. I’m more concerned with capturing your personality and those huge wedding day emotional interactions than your ‘camera face’ face!
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… approach to wedding photography mirrors my relationship with my own family photo ‘heirlooms’!The family and friends that you have gathered around you on your wedding day are priceless. Overtime the value of those photographs will increase as circumstances change and time passes. The people you love, their PERSONALITIES, antics, dress sense, DANCE MOVES and drinking prowess ARE ALL THAT MATTER. If you are a ‘People Person’ that will resonate with you …and we’ll get on the finest.
A FEW FUN FACTS..I have a lifelong obsession with Stevie Nicks, I swear eloquently..especially at pigeons. Shop floor mannequins freak me out. Fairy lights, Flamenco, Flamingos, Chardonnay, cherry blossom trees, free wheeling down a mountain, wide open skies and Irish winter beaches put me in a very happy place.
I would consider myself an extroverted introvert with my fair share of social awkwardness….this works in your favour! I like being around people but I don’t always have to talk and I’m definitely not a shouty photographer. A lot of the time I’m preoccupied with and looking over your shoulder for a parallel line, shade or shard of light. I also love architecture, landscapes, moody weather and want to incorporate your chosen venue into your images so sometimes I’m just too far away to worry about
