A few weeks ago, I met up with James and Amy in Derry to get a chat about their upcoming wedding at The Empire in Belfast this month. I’ve known James and Amy for a number of years so I’m really looking forward to their day and all that Belfast has to offer, particularly where we’re going to go for portraits! There’s an abundance of quirky spots already picked out in my head; cool bars, street art, the evening light amongst the tall buildings. I’m looking forward to seeing what we come up with!

I brought my camera along and threw James and Amy in at the deep end with a short but sweet pre-wedding shoot in the Craft Village. We made our way from the Legenderry Warehouse Cafe and stopped just under the Derry walls for our first few shots.

As with most of us, getting in front of the camera can be a bit daunting. I tell all our couples ALL the time that it’s really nothing to be worried about. More often than not, if you just embrace it, grab each other’s hands, give each other a squeeze and let the awkward laughs out, we’ll more than likely come away with a few beaut shots of you both. It really doesn’t have to be contrived or painful in any way. Just you looking your beautiful selves is all we need to get some shots you can be happy with and the aim of the game is to get you feeling a little less worried about your photos on the wedding day itself.

We hope that’s how you’ll feel anyway! And sure look, they’re utter babes. Nothing to worry about.

P.S Mad jealous of Amy’s coat. 😍

On up to the Craft Village for a few more photos, we stopped just under a roofed area for something a bit moodier. I was loving Amy’s yellow coat which lent itself well to the blue hues in the wall. Obsessed with mustard and teal. Just a bit.

Your portraits don’t have to be all smiles and affection. I love to have a good solid portrait of you both as individuals as well as a couple and I’m a sucker for a default face and a bit of mood so was well pleased with these photos. ❤️

We finished up with a few shots in and around the Craft Village, using the colourful doors and quirky buildings as our backdrop. Really looking forward to their Belfast wedding this month!
