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.
• Do you travel for elopements or couples shoots or do you just shoot Northern Ireland elopements? ?
Yes, I take on just 5 destination elopements each year. New places are adventures waiting to happen. So far I’ve shot in France, Scotland, England, Iceland, Shetland, the U.S.A, Switzerland, Santorini & Poland, Send us an email we’d love to know what you have planned!
• 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! I recommend no less than 4 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 Bank transfer or Credit card.
• 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 also shoot a handful of family sessions each year, I love working with young families with small children, those sessions are always so much fun!

Camera gear - Sony A7iii x 2, Sony 28mm F2, Zeiss 35mm F1.4, Sony 35mm F1.8, Zeiss 50mm F1.4, Zeiss 55mm F1.8, Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8.
