“Mine was the twilight and the morning. Mine was a world of rooftops and love songs.”

It would be true to say I have a huge city-crush. Everything feels different in Paris. You can’t help but be effected by it. We left the rain and cold of January for just one weekend, although I wish I could have stayed and explored longer. This is the first time it’s been just the two of us, without the kids in 8 years. Last year it was our 10th wedding anniversary. As that’s the busiest time of the year for me with weddings, I kind of felt bad that we didn’t get away to celebrate. So this was a little delayed 10th anniversary gift to us. We strolled along the grand boulevards, stopped for coffee in quiet cafes on ancient streets, drank good wine and ate good food in the evening, stayed out much too late, and allowed Paris to sweep us off our feet.


I know I’ve been quiet lately on the blog. I’m busy as always behind the scenes. Busy with albums, busy preparing for the new wedding season, looking after myself and my family. At this time of year I love to reflect, change what needs changing, and get fired up for the year to come. I’ve also been doing a bit more educating over the last few weeks. This is a new thing for me. The next event coming up is Photography Farm which Lisa Devlin has very kindly asked me to speak at. I’m really feeling very honoured to be asked to contribute to this amazing workshop that’s coming to Belfast. If you’re a new wedding photographer looking for some inspiration and insight into this business, go book your place now.
