Moss Cottage

I recently had the pleasure again of taking photos at the recently opened Moss Cottage on the main street in Dundrum. There's lots of little treasures to be found in this quaint little shop!

Sneak peek at shoot with Pearl and Godiva ;)

So many pretty details to document the other day at Bellinter House where Pearl and Godiva and the French Touch were styling a wedding so here's a sneak peek ;)

Gayle & Martin's testimonial

"My husband and I planned our wedding, to be held in Scotland, from the USA so 99% of our planning was done online.  My husband and I are quite shy and introverted in front of the camera so it was very important to get a photographer who understood this. I had known about Elisha for some time and kept referring back to her work as my benchmark and all the others kept falling short.

Eventually, I realised we weren’t going to find somebody to match Elisha’s work standard and ethic – so we asked her to fly from Ireland to Scotland to be our wedding photographer.  She presented us  with several photography packages that we could choose from, depending on our budget. We spoke on Skype about ideas and plans, emailed, Facebooked, met for lunch while I was on a brief trip to Ireland from the States and she showed us her products and ideas.

Right up until our wedding day Elisha kept in contact with us and we sent ideas to each other back and forth. On our special day, we couldn’t have asked for a more caring, fun, unique photographer – her attention to detail, talent and creativity is second to none and we could not have made a better decision. We still cannot compliment her enough. All our guests were thrilled with her ideas and direction and most importantly – we had fun doing our shots and every moment of our day was captured to perfection. 

We were so thrilled with her work that when she sent us the proof for our album we didn’t change one thing about it – every page and photograph was chosen perfectly to reflect our love and celebration on our special day. She has tailored it to our exact reflection of what our day meant to us. There are several more weddings in our family coming up soon and I have recommended her to them all and have no doubt that she will do exactly what she did for us. 

Choosing the right photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make for your special day – albeit a birthday, anniversary, engagement.....anything. Elisha will capture your day exactly as you want it. And you will have fun in the process. Her products are of the best quality and her ideas and creativity will quickly make you realise you have made the best decision. We really cannot put into words just how much she made our special day a perfect day. She’s going to be a very, very busy and even more successful photographer in the near future. Don’t miss your chance..."

This has to be one of the nicest, well thought out testimonials I've ever gotten. Thanks G & M!

Bellinter House

I was up dark and early the other morning to set off to Bellinter house to shoot for Pearl and Godiva and the French Touch as they set up for a wedding down there. This was also handy for me as a couple of mine getting married this year are considering Bellinter as their venue. As I like to scope venues out before I shoot at them, I thought I'd take this opportunity to take some shots of the lovely details Bellinter has to offer. Here are some of those shots with shots from the set up to follow soon. It was so lovely to work with the girls for the day. :)

A teeny bit of Street shooting on NYE 2011

Yesterday I met up with Ashley Baxter  who recently 2nd shot a wedding with me in Glasgow. She was over for a couple of nights to attend a wedding here in Dublin so we decided to meet up for lunch and take to the streets to take some snaps. I however failed to take many pics. I was too busy talking! I'm sure Ashley has some great shots of the day so I'll link to that when she gets a chance to post them :)
