CREATIVE. MODERN. ALTERNATIVE*
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN NORTHERN IRELAND

*COLOURFUL, RELAXED & real WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY for COUPLES WHO LIKE TO DO THINGS A BIT DIFFERENTLY. 

 

THE ONE ABOUT US. 

WE’RE HOLLY AND LIME PHOTOGRAPHY – a couple of old romantics slash wedding photographers from Derry in Northern Ireland.  We photograph weddings all over Ireland including Belfast, Dublin, Galway and Meath to name but a few.

I’m Lisa and I’ll be your main photographer. Chris works alongside me from time to time so you might get to meet him too. 

We love documenting weddings in all their natural glory. We’re lovers of documentary photography and artistic portraits so our wedding photography style is a bit of a mashup between the two.

We’re very much believers in allowing you to enjoy your day as much as possible without a pain in the arse photographer interrupting it’s natural flow. We let you get on with your day, photographing on the sidelines and when the time is right, steal you for a short time to fit in some gorgeous portraits of you both; allowing you to swiftly get back to your mates.

READ ABOUT WHY YOU SHOULDN’T BOOK US.

“I have no idea where this will lead us but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.”

the one about YOU.

 

THE ONE ABOUT YOU. 

You’re a laid back couple who want to keep it simple. You (ideally) want to have a wedding that’s a little bit different but overall, you just want to marry your best friend and celebrate your day with the people you like the most.

You want amazing but relaxed photos to show how it all went down though you’re not overly comfortable having your photo taken and frankly, a little worried about the portraits bit. 99.9% of our couples feel this way…at the beginning! There’s really nothing to worry about and it actually is a lovely few moments you get to spend (almost) alone together during your busy wedding day. And you might actually find it’s a bit fun too!

You want a photographer who can mix in with your guests, document all the love, all the craic, all the bits you might have missed but also take a few shots of you both without any fuss or faff, allowing you to enjoy your day with your nearest and dearest.

HAVE A JOOK AT OUR AMAZING COUPLES.

A BIT ABOUT US.

WE LOVE WEDDINGS; RAW, REAL AND FULL OF EMOTION.

JUST AS IT SHOULD BE.

Hailing from Derry in Northern Ireland. Twin Peaks aficionados. Massive F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan (Lisa). Obsessed with mid-century vintage furniture. Self-proclaimed movie buffs. Lovers of Roxy Music. Eaters of salt ‘n’ chilli chips

We like to do things a little differently. We’re looking for couples who do things differently too. We reckon it’s pretty important you get to know your wedding photographers before spending a full day with them. A least a little bit! When you book in, we’ll hook up before the day and get a chat over a beer or coffee. Or a Skype session. Whichever is easiest!

We’re more than just wedding photographers though…

STAY FOR THE CRAIC.

 
We’re totally invested in all our couples so we only take on a minimum number of weddings each year. This means availibilty is limited so do check in with your date to see if we’re free!

Our main package includes: 

  • Pre wedding chat about your day.
  • Approx 500 lovingly edited, downloadable hi-res images in a personal online gallery to share with family and friends.
  • USB & prints in a personalised keepsake box.

    Wedding Photography prices include travel all over Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Destination and overseas weddings require a bespoke quote so just email us your details and we can get chatting about your day!
    We also offer half day packages for shorter weddings and bespoke quotes for everything else; overseas weddings, very short weddings and lovely extras  like albums and engagement photoshoots!

the one where we meet.

 



We figure our style is a bit alternative. We love couples who want something a little bit different too. Mainly, we just love couples in love; looking to create something awesome! 

We’re based in Derry, Northern Ireland so we do most of our meetings here. If you’re further away, we can always do a wee Skype session. I know, I know. They’re weird and your face gets frozen in weird expressions but it’s really handy to chat face to face. Sort of. Which is quite important we think. We’re going to be spending your day with you after all so it’s a great way to feel a little more at ease about having photographers following you around all day. We’re discreet though. Promise. No diva photographers here. It’s your day. We totally get that. Hopefully you’ve had a good scroll through the blog and you like what you see, so drop us a message below. Tell us all the craic! We’d love to hear all about you and your plans! When you get in touch, we’ll send you a brochure with all the info you need about how we work.

WE’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU!
