This summer was full of exciting things all around, including the wedding of the lovely Charlotte & Andy! Charlotte’s a dear friend, so it was a huge honour to photograph their special (and beautiful!) day, and we had a blast taking wedding party photos at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum – so many fun places to shoot! Enjoy a sampling of their joy-filled day!

  

  

  

The end of November saw the wedding of two lovely friends of mine here in Belfast, Sam & Abi (or should I say Mr. & Mrs. Wolsey). From the ceremony taking place in a gorgeous old church, to the lucky break in the rain for a few photos in Lady Dixon Park, the day was full of cheerful things and a stunning bride to boot! Enjoy a glimpse at a few of my favourite photos from the day!

Earlier this summer I heard about the idea of Microadventures – mini adventures that inspire you to take a break from the busy-ness of life and get out and cycle/walk/run/hike/swim/explore somewhere new. Because really, why not?

As I am always a fan of new adventures, I found a fellow adventurous spirit (yes, that’s you Emma) and we set off on our own cycling-inspired microadventure. Despite threatening clouds (and frequent stops to repair Murray, my trusty cycle) we ventured from Belfast to the coast south of Comber, and set up ‘camp’ somewhere under the stars between the incoming tide and field of fresh looking leaks. It was beautiful, indeed.

So without further adieu, I present to you, our visual documentation* of the journey!

*In the spirit of adventure, I opted to experiment with motion instead of still photography. For the record, it’s harder than one might think to hold a camera steady while cycling and trying desperately not to crash…

As a designer and photographer, I love how inspiration can be found in so many place, how a bit of fresh air and 24 hours without a computer does wonders for the brain! Needless to say, I’m definitely addicted to the idea of microadventures; now I just need to find a bag that’s bigger on the inside to fit enough layers for warmth in the coming winter…
