Newborn, family and wedding photography in Northern Ireland

Photo credit: Colin Tuff

Hello, and welcome to my blog! My name is Lauren, and I am a newborn, family and wedding photographer based in Northern Ireland. On this site you’ll find lots of information about modern wedding photography in Northern Ireland, Ireland and the UK, as well as details about beautiful natural newborn photographs and fun, relaxed family photography. This is the place to keep right up to date with all of my latest wedding photography, newborn photos and family photoshoots, with regular posts on my photography blog.

For me, nothing beats the thrill of capturing true emotion in a photograph – tears of happiness on a wedding day, the giggles (and sometimes tantrums!) of a toddler, and the sweet contentment of a newborn baby. No matter who I’m photographing, I strive to produce a beautiful photographic record not just of what they look like, but of who they truly are – no fads, no gimmicks, just pure, timeless photography that will look as good in 20 years as it does today.


Wedding Photography in Northern Ireland

My modern, storybook style of photography means that for most of your wedding day I will be totally unobtrusive, just quietly photographing the action as it unfolds around me. I mix this documentary style wedding photography with relaxed and informal portraits, and I work quickly so your guests won’t be left wondering where you disappeared to all day! I realise how much time and effort you put into choosing all the little details for your day, from your shoes, dress and jewellery, to the table decorations and favours, so I make sure that I photograph every detail to complete the beautiful record of your entire day.

Wedding Photography in Ireland, the UK and beyond

Being a wedding photographer in Northern Ireland is a real pleasure – not only do we have the friendliest wedding guests ever, but we’re lucky to have a whole host of amazing wedding venues in every part of the country, as well as stunning locations for wedding photographs right on our doorstep. Beaches, mountains, forests and parks, we really are spoilt for choice. I feel very lucky to have photographed at weddings right across Northern Ireland, but it’s always a special thrill to be asked to be a wedding photographer outside of Northern Ireland too. In the past 6 years, I have photographed weddings in every corner of the UK and Ireland, as well as in mainland Europe, so no matter where you’re thinking of getting married, I hope you’ll consider having me as your wedding photographer – I love to travel! I always keep my travel costs to the absolute minimum, so just let me know your plans using the Get in Touch button at the bottom of this page or the Contact tab above, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible with a travel cost estimate.

Newborn & Family Photography

From the tiniest newborn baby right through to the teenager on the brink of adulthood, I absolutely love recording special moments in a family’s history. Time passes so quickly and it’s great to know that families will always be able to look back on their photographs and have great memories of those precious family times. My newborn photography is soft and natural, and captures those precious first few days that are gone in the blink of an eye. As babies get older, I love to take photos of them crawling or starting to walk, and really seeing their little personalities start to shine through. For older children, nothing beats getting out and about in the great outdoors, away from the confines of a studio, to capture them at their absolute best, feeling relaxed and happy. Family photoshoots can take place at any location in Northern Ireland, so just let me know if there’s somewhere special where you’d like to be photographed. Feel free to browse through my Newborn Photography Information and Newborn Photography Pricing pages, and see recent newborn photos on my blog. You can also check out some recent baby, child and family photos, and get more information about family photoshoots on my Family Photography Information and Family Photography Pricing pages.
