I’ve finally set up a blog.  A new year.  A new blog.  Well, it’s my first blog.

I hope that you my dear readers will visit often and that we can stay connected.  Whether you are a client, a bride, a groom, sister of a bride, filmmaker, wedding supplier — you are very welcome.  Please don’t be afraid to comment on any post – it will keep the blog alive.

To my clients, I hope that you will gain a more in-depth knowledge of who I am and what I do.  Although I live in Dublin, I specialize in filming and editing weddings throughout Ireland, and have had the pleasure of filming hundreds of weddings for couples in literally every county.

Wedding videography is gaining more and more popularity amongst couples in Ireland.  Brides and grooms are a lot more discerning these days – they want the best for their once in a lifetime day.  The standard of videography is rising in Ireland.  We are no longer in the days of video tape where couples received three hours of boring unedited footage.  Most wedding videos today have earned their title:  ‘Wedding Films’.

My goal is to provide my wedding couples with a cinematic, emotional, finely edited and tightly crafted wedding video that never rambles off in the wrong direction, and fires along at an appropriate pace while holding the attention of the viewer.

I break my back on each wedding I film.  I’m not doing my best work unless I break a sweat, filming or editing.  And yet, wedding videography is highly misunderstood to this day.  There is no reason why wedding videography should not be held in as high a regard as wedding photography.  Many of my own clients have told me after their weddings that they loved their DVD but that their photo album was only “Okay”, or that they watch their wedding video a lot more than they would look at their photo album.  The point is not that wedding videography is more valuable than wedding photography – it’s just that there’s no reason to see it as a lesser art form, especially when it isn’t seen as such by many of my couples.

Hopefully with this blog, I can put to rest any common misunderstandings about the craft of wedding filmmaking, and provide you with more of an insight into what will become for you a priceless family treasure – a professionally crafted wedding video.

This is a business and personal blog.  I will be posting sample clips of weddings and other work that I do, and will provide readers with up to date news about what’s happening, along with analysis and my own point of view on different aspects of the Irish wedding trade, and who knows what else.  Keep checking back regularly, as you might see clips from your own wedding venue and church/ceremony location on these pages.

When couples are planing their big day, they often want to book wedding suppliers based on referrals from others.  I will be promoting other suppliers on this blog who I work with regularly at weddings and who I would be more than happy to recommend.
