Jared & Stephanie Elopement Wedding in Dingle // Hussy's Folly Tower // Dunquin Harbour - Ireland

Jared & Stephanie Elopement Wedding in Dingle // Hussy's Folly Tower // Dunquin Harbour - Ireland

Dingle, a small and charming port town sitting at the tip of a peninsula facing straight into the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest of Ireland. A landscape is known for its breathtaking scenery, of rising peaks, white sand beaches and the ever-present haunt of history.

This almost mythical landscape was the chosen backdrop to celebrate the marriage of Stephanie and Jared. There to share and memorialize the day was their closest family and friends. Adding to the abundance of sheer joy and love…

Sean and Sharon // Vows Renewal // Cliffs of Moher // Corcomroe Abbey Elopement

An American duo with pretty big hearts and open for grand adventure. Their vows renewal was in one of my favorite places in Ireland, the Corcomroe Abbey in Clare is just a few miles from the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. Dreamy, right? But what’s the point of blabbering on when you can watch their experience and their big big love for yourself.

- Dingle Poem -
“From main roads through the pass
and there, beneath,
as if a mountain gate over
a valley, lake or bay
a golden road
to visit a past,
Peig, the Blaskets,
basket of another age
of literature,
all writers on the island,
an embryo,
of Ireland, vacated
to new lands.

Or round Slea head,
a bleak peak,
a romance with Ryan's
daughter.

A corner, fluid
of memory and romance,
Now we are too
sophisticated,
beyond the word
of linking
mountain and sea,
and honesty.
dingle beautiful town.”
- Bernard Kennedy

Sara & Gearóid // Alternative Wedding // Drummaan - Co. Clare

Sara & Gearóid // Alternative Wedding // Drummaan - Co. Clare

They dreamed a dream of being married in the Irish countryside, in the woods under the gentle dappled light of the swaying trees, next to the quietly flowing waters where Gearóid grew up, fishing in the softly murmuring currents. All the flowers, Sara's hair & make-up, were lovingly made by her bridesmaids and both families. It was a true family affair, a coming together of tribes for a celebration of love, music by Gearóid's Dad, the wedding celebrant their friend. Dreamy, right?

Chelsea & Derek  | Intimate Elopement in Wicklow - IE

They decided to have their intimate elopement wedding surrounded by the magic Wicklow Mountains. Blessed by the Irish Gods and Elements, it couldn't be more special. 

Gloria & Taylor // Cliffs of Moher Elopement //

Gloria & Taylor // Cliffs of Moher Elopement //

These two came to Ireland to elope, without telling anyone, keeping the day truly special between just the two of them and their family. (And I was honored and lucky enough to have been chosen to document their story and love and tag along.) Their elopement encompassed every single reason why I LOVE to document elopements and feel like more couples should elope if that is what their hearts are telling them. The day was completely theirs, they did everything they wanted their way, loved on each other with no distractions, committed their love to one another, and then went on an adventure afterward. It was completely magical.

Gloria and Taylor came to me with an idea in hand, a day they envisioned, and knowing that they were going to get married in the Cliffs of Moher. We worked together to come up with their itinerary for the day, I made sure to create something with some of the best spots in the area and wanted to make sure to have fun. One of the benefits of hiring a photographer who knows the area is that we know where to go, what is dangerous, what is not going to be busy, best times to go to locations, etc. They put their full faith in me and let me lead the adventure.
Thanks for sharing your story with me <3

Jess &amp; Colin // Connemara // Elopement Story

They rented an Airbnb in the middle of the Connemara mountains, Jess and Colin both got ready together that morning. From the handmade dress, to the hidden spot by the “lonely” tree, to their sunset photos. The entire day was magic.
