FAQ's about Northern Ireland elopements
You're at the start of the most exciting adventure! Northern Ireland elopements are on another level! You're going to be completely blown away by the place when you see it for yourself! It has it all, ancient castles, rugged cliff edges, wild mountains, rolling green hills & old pubs with pints of Guinness & bottles of Bushmills Whisky just waiting for you to celebrate your marriage! I've tried to answer most of the questions people have about eloping in Ireland. If you have another question please let me know, I'm happy to help.
TAYLOR & MIKE // BALTIMORE, USA
Canceling the wedding we had previously planned near home, and deciding to elope in Ireland was somewhat terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time.
Finding a photographer was the first thing on our priority list, and we did just that. Came across Rob in a Google search for 'Ireland's best elopement photographers', and immediately reached out to him. Rob's authentic demeaner, and the passion he has for his work was evident within the first 10 minutes of our Facetime with him. My (now) husband and I hung up from that call not only knowing we had found our photographer, but somehow feeling reassured that this fantastical 'dream' we had of eloping in Ireland was actually possible.
Thank you for capturing the magic of the day Rob, and all you did to celebrate our love with us!
FAQS about Northern Ireland Elopements
• How many images will we receive from our adventure elopement?
A shed load! There’s no set number but you’ll get at least 200, usually a lot more. If you extend your coverage beyond the 4 hours standard then you'll end up with more photos.
• How long will it take for our photos to be ready?
Photos are usually ready within 10 weeks of your elopement & 3 weeks of your couples session, this can be a bit longer during the busy season. If you don't want to wait I offer an express editing service too, get in touch for pricing.
• Where do you think is the best place for our elopement ceremony in Ireland?
There are so many awesome places in Ireland that you could have your elopement ceremony! My favourite place to shoot is the Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland because it has the most amazing spots all in one small area. You could hit 3 or 4 world class locations during your elopement in that area, you could hit more if you extend your coverage.
• How long does your elopement coverage last?
As long as you want. Typically coverage starts whenever you’re getting ready and finishes in the pub when you've both got a pint of Guinness in your hands! Most couples have at least 6-8 hours coverage, lots of people want more though. We can do full day elopement adventures & day after sessions, there really is no limit, there are so many places we could explore together.
• How much do you charge for travel?
My packages include travel to elopements & couples sessions within Northern Ireland. I'll give you a custom quote for anywhere outside of Northern Ireland.
• Can you hold my date?
I'm sorry but no I can't do that, I operate on a first come, first served basis. The only way to secure a date is by paying the retainer.
• Can I order an album at later date?
Yes, lots of our couples wait until a few months after the elopement to order their album.
• Do you have insurance?
Yes as a Limited Company I don't cut corners, I think it's so important that my clients can feel at ease knowing they are working with a professional. For this reason I have both public indemnity & liability insurance.
• How can I pay you?
I take payments via wise.com. It's the best way to send money from the USA to a UK bank account.
• Do you do formal group shots at elopements?
If you have a handful of people travelling with you to witness your elopement ceremony it would be a crime not to get a great photo with them! So yes we can get a few group shots. It'll no doubt be crazy windy so your Mum's hair might look a bit wild though!
• Do you only shoot adventure elopements?
Shooting adventurous elopements in Northern Ireland & beyond is my passion so most of my diary is filled with those. I also love shooting couples sessions, they have all sorts of names, pre-wedding shoots, engagement sessions, proposal shoots, vow renewals, anniversary sessions, beloved shoots. Whatever you call them if two people in love want to head somewhere awesome with me to make photos, I'm all over that! I'm only able to take on couples sessions between November & March each year as I'm so busy with elopements April through October.
• What camera equipment do you use?
Camera gear - Sony A7iv x 2, Sony 35mm F1.4, Sony 35mm F1.8, Sony 50mm F1.2, Sony 85mm F1.4
Apparel - Rebel One Veteran Pro Camera Straps, ONA Camps Bay Rucksack, ONA Brixton Messenger Bag.
