Hello everyone, hope you are all keeping well through these uncertain times with the Covid 19 pandemic. In this article I focus on your wedding and the current Covid 19 advice.
As a Wedding photographer based in Galway, I too have the same questions as yourselves, as to when weddings will get the green light to go ahead with Covid 19. However there still seems to be a lot of uncertainty at the moment. Having said that we are now seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.
We will take every precaution, following the Covid 19 advice and guidelines from the WHO. We will do this before, and during your event. For instance this will include temperature checks, with social distancing and PPE, should it be required. We are on hand anytime to discuss wedding covid advice.
At the moment the majority of our 2020 couples have postponed their wedding until 2021. consequently this will leave all wedding suppliers very busy next year.

My shooting style is honest and intimate. We do not have to let Covid 19 advice interrupt your day. I will still capture the feeling of each wedding. Even with Covid 19 advice regulations and guidelines, with the use of telephoto lenses I will balance a combination of composed and natural moments in an honest and non choreographed way.

I can assure you that when couples and their guests feel comfortable and live in the moment it helps us to capture great photos.
Advice - Keeping Covid 19 in mind.
When choosing your wedding photographer it is important that your personalities connect. Where possible meet face to face, distancing can be implemeted with a little forethought, keeping Covid 19 advice and regulations in mind.
Some good Covid 19 advice is to plan beforehand, make a list of important photos. We are delighted to receive a list, as a result it ensures none of the photos, which are important to you will be missed. As a result social distancing can be planned and implemented beforehand if necessary. Dont worry about all other shots they are in safe hands. As always the key is in the planning and the timeline, moreover it means you do not miss any of the party.
In conclusion enjoy the day, don't get caught up in the small things. Covid 19 will not always be around. By the time your wedding comes around Covid 19 will hopefully be a distant memory. Trust the people around you. A happy bride and groom who are relaxed and in the moment are great to photograph. If you are relaxed on the inside it shows on the outside, and as I always say "natural smiles lead to great photographs".
Good luck, looking forward to hearing from you all.
