I’m Eddy , a Northern Irish family photographer & I love to capture photos that are light-filled, natural, soft, and emotional. I am always ready to photograph couples & families living in Stranocum, Ballymoney, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. I am married to my wonderful wife Laura and we have 3 amazing kids & 3 dogs (the hairy wains). We spend our spare time out walking the hairy wains and we can normally be found anywhere along the Causeway Coastal Route.

Luckily, I am surrounded by natural and beautiful landscapes of what has to be God's best designed part of the planet, the north coast of Ireland. I'M based only a couple of miles from the famous Dark Hedges, made famous by the Game of Thrones.  I spend a lot of time along the Causeway Coastal Route from Murlough Bay to Portstewart, I'm blessed to have this locality to make images in. 

I love every element of photography from the planning a shoot with maps and satellite images via google & O.S. maps, to meeting Families & clients, even the early starts & late evenings of the shoot and the post-processing when everything comes together to make the final image look amazing. It is my honour to document clients lives in a way that regardless of how fast the day moves, no small detail is missed. From the tear that rolls down his cheek as she walks down the aisle to the way they lean in and laugh together during an engagement shoot.

No matter where your moments happen, I am inspired to tell the story about your family and the love you share together, I am always ready to photograph families & couples in love in Coleraine, Ballycastle, Ballymoney, Ballymena area and even further afield.

So why then?

My parents only have a few images from their ceremony. The camera was positioned on a tripod in the very back of the church and it’s impossible to see their reactions. I believe those reactions are crucial to telling your story. From the emotions a bride shares with her mum as as she slips into her dress to the joy a groom feels when he sees his bride for the first time, the laughter we all share as I get soaked to the knees getting that one shot at your engagement, it is my privilege to interweave those beautiful images into visual story that will live on for generations to come. It is my desire for all children to see how in love their parents and grandparents were all those years ago, and how much in love they still are to this day.
