NORTHERN IRELAND WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

I’ve been working as a professional photographer for over 10 years now. Before that I had a whole other career as a graphic designer and art editor. When my children came along everything changed. Picking up the camera purely to document as a mother, I realised the emotional impact photographs could have when loved ones were in the frame.

TEARS & HUGS. FLOWERS & CAKE. IT’S ALL GOOD.
My favourite photos are the ones where the love shines out of them. Whether that be the love between couples, between a parent and child, or even that spiritual bond between people and place. I’ve been so lucky to have shot hundreds of weddings, portraits, families and editorials over the years. There’s always the challenge to find the unique story in everything. No two weddings are the same and it’s those unique connections that I look for. Of course I also enjoy flowers, dresses and cake.

MAKE THE MOST OF ME
I’ve seen a few weddings in my time. I’m more than happy to help my clients with planning, tips and advice to make the most of their weddings or portrait shoot for the best photography experience both before and after the session. If you’re nearby call in for a coffee. In fact, this whole website is fuelled by Lavazza ;)

ABOUT PAULA:
We live a quiet life between the southern shores of the Lough Neagh and the River Bann in Northern Ireland. My favourite thing is to walk the overgrown, soggy lanes in wellies with my two kids and two dogs, Molly the wheatie and my youngest baby – Scarlett the pug :) I’m an eternal dreamer and a romantic.  Historical dramas, gothic romance novels, crumbling castles, rugged landscapes and painterly, soft tones are all daily inspirations.

“I use my eyes, my camera and
sensitivity to capture people and
events,
but truly these photographs
come from the heart.”
