Isn’t it nice to see photographs in print. Today there is an increasing use of photographs in digital form only. Through smart phones and social media the number of photographs taken and shared is enormous but it is quite often a case of seen today and forgotten tomorrow.
I think this is true even in the professional photography world. More and more wedding couples only want their photographs in digital form. I often wonder how many even bother to get prints made never mind albums. Are they relegated to a file on the laptop or sitting forlornly in the timeline of their Facebook page?
What prompted these thoughts was a recent phone call from a bride from September 2010 – yes 2010 for whom I had supplied high resolution photographs on DVD as requested.
Now almost two years on she wanted a print version. Not a full blown album but something better than the high street offerings. I sourced a very good company that makes great quality Photobooks, did the design, got them printed and now copies of these books are winging their way to the USA and England to relatives.
I realise there is still the work and responsibility of design and quality the same as for a full scale album for less financial return but when I received them and was checking them out before delivery to the client I remembered the pleasure of simply seeing photographs in print.
Below is just one spread from the 26 page hard cover photobook.

A few weeks ago I photographed Matthew and Caroline’s wedding in St Malachy’s in County Down and then the reception in the Carrickdale Hotel in County Louth. Now for a guy from County Antrim that’s a lot of county to cover but with light traffic and very few wrong turns it all went swimmingly. It was a small intimate and very friendly wedding with a lovely couple as the stars on the day. I really must thank the bridal party and indeed all the guests for making my job easy and for being so friendly and welcoming.
The couple are just back from their honeymoon and sent me a very appreciated email over the weekend. One quote made it all worthwhile – “The photographs are fantastic, especially….” Well thank you.
Below are a few photographs from the day that I particularly like.

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Matthew and Caroline in Northern Ireland. The wedding service was in county Down and the reception was held in the Carrickdale hotel. This photograph was taken in the gardens of the hotel late in the afternoon.
I will be blogging more of this wedding later but this photograph is just a sneek peek!

Following on from the last post of the pre wedding photography of Matthew and Caroline I just wanted to post a few more photographs taken on a day of very changeable weather. Where I had a camera in my hand all the time (obviously) the lovely couple were never far away from the umbrella!
Again I must say I was very impressed with the variety of scenes in Lady Dixon Park in Belfast. Now on with the photographs. If you would like to leave a comment just scroll down to the bottom of the page.
A fun and relaxed couple – Matthew and Caroline on a typical Northern Ireland summer day with heavy rain and some glorious sunshine meant lots of dashing in and out of cover. The happy couple are getting married later in the year and we met up in Lady Dixon Park outside Belfast for their pre wedding photography session last week.
Below are a few photographs from the day. All comments welcome.
Just a fun photograph to show how bad the rain was on the day. I’m sure Matthew and Caroline won’t mind being reminded!
