In weddings on August 8, 2011 at 7:00 pm
Hi everyone once again we were privileged to be asked to do the wedding photography for a lovely couple from Strabane & Sion Mills, Claire O’Reilly and Barry McGuigan. The wedding took place at St Mary’s Chapel, Strabane and the wedding mass was performed by Fr Michael Doherty PP.
For those of you who don’t know Claire she is about as much fun as you can pack into someone, a real joy to be around and loves the camera as much as it loves her. Barry likewise is a fun loving guy who enjoys the ‘craic’, and like many a man who truly loves his woman basks in her happiness, here are a few images of what was a great day for the couple, their families and the large group of friends who attended the service and reception.
I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Colette and i to wish Claire and Barry, Life, Love and Happiness all their days.
most of the images here are by my better half Colette who keeps me honest….
wow, isn’t she lovely..
something a little different…
waiting with Barry…
walking the walk..
mr & mrs …….
the gang is all here….
Claire and Barry were great after having to change locations for the photos because of torrential rain it never
caused them a thought they were super to work with.
the model… together….
power of love
the girl has it..
play it again Barry…
as always we try to get every shot we can…
that is a small selection of images from a great day with a lovely couple have a great time on honeymoon guys and
we will be in touch soon.

Hi, one of my passions is music, from Rock, Blues, classical you name it i love it, so when a good friend of mine David Oliver asked if i would like to shoot the cover for his new album i jumped at the chance. Davie gave me a untitled demo of the album, a breakaway from his blues based music that his lovely wife Cat and the RedJam outfit usually do ( brilliantly). This was something altogether different, traditional irish, scots origin mountain music from the southern states, lively foot tapping stuff and ballads that sing to the soul a fusion of music that had our household all listening to it from pop tastic 14 year boy a 17 year old MM addict the missus who skipped around the house to the great tunes and myself who nearly burnt out the cambridge sounds works deck. Folks if you haven’t heard this get it http://www.redjam.us/discography.html will take you to the site.
Anyway after a good 2 weeks listening to the sounds and a few phone calls only one place would do for the shoot, Co Donegal. Normally a shoot like this would take photographer, assistant, make up hair etc, we decided this would be a raw look so a few cameras and lenses in the bag, a few flash heads just in case and off we went one sunday morning.
Now what made this work so well was the craic, David is a fun guy to be with and the laughs came thick and fast, here a few images from the day some we used and some we didn’t. David’s brother James done a great job on the album design super job. http://www.designboy.tv/
here are a few images from the day..

ok thats it until the next time folks back to proper work now, five albums to build..break time over for today.

Hi, i was recently invited by fellow photographer and friend Jude Browne of Jude Browne Photography to assist in shooting fashion images for Oma Fair Lady – Omagh’s First Lady of Vintage Fashion, the shoot was to take place at the home of Kathleen and Hugh Ward, Tattykeel House which is part of the Ulster Garden Scheme, National Trust Garden for us to shoot in. Jude had organised the shoot with Sinéad Slane of Oma Fair Lady Vintage Fashion, so all i had to do was turn up and boy was i glad to be part of it the team consisted of Sinéad Slane, Oma Fair Lady, Aisling Donaghy of Aisling’s Textile Studio, Roisin O’Gara from Creative Loch’s Hair Salon, Lochmacrory expertly re-created the vintage hair styles. Una Pritchard, who also works at Creative Loch’s Hair Salon took care of the vintage make up. Our models for the evening Cliodhna, Peter, Seoirse, Una and Michelle most of the girls had never modelled before but as you will see they rocked the shoot. A hugh thank you to all involved in the shoot, those who supplied clothes and accessories who i haven’t mentioned. After talking with Jude i decided to shoot using flash, jude would use natural light just to give us a different feel to the images. The following is a selection of various images please visit Jude Browne Photography & https://www.facebook.com/omafairlady for more images.
The fair itself takes place on 31st July, 1pm – 5.30pm at The Silver Birch Hotel, Omagh, with free entry
