Hi, I’m evelyn!
I am a Wedding Photographer based in Limerick. Being a photographer is my dream job, and while I know that sounds like a cliche, it’s true. When I finished school I really wanted to work in a creative field, but I didn't know where my journey would lead me. I studied Art and Graphic design, but after a few weeks of repeatedly drawing a corn-on-the cob from every possible angle, I knew art was not for me. I did however love the photography aspect and my passion grew from there. I went on to study Print and Radio journalism at night, while working in a children’s portraiture studio by day. I photographed a few family weddings during this time, and I quickly realized I loved it and I was good at it. In 2006, I started shooting weddings full-time. Fast forward to 2014 and I set up my own studio; since then I have never looked back. I am fueled by my passion to photograph your day in a laid-back but fun way. My style is no fuss natural images, capturing your day as it unfolds. I’m chatty, sociable and I love to laugh, and this helps massively to ensure that couples feel relaxed on their special day. I live in the sticks of West Limerick with my (wonderful!) husband and my beautiful little boy Aidan, my extremely disobedient dogs Gerry (a beagle), Willow (a Golden retriever) and our ginger cat Micháel . I love travelling and interior design, especially anything that’s a little quirky. Outside of work, I love going to music and comedy gigs or kayaking and hiking.
Hi, I’m evelyn!
After school I always knew I'd end up working in a creative job, but I just didn’t know which one. I went on to study Art and Graphic-design, but after weeks of repeatedly drawing a corn-on-the cob from every possible angle, I knew art was not for me. I did however love the photography aspect and my passion grew from there. I went on to study Print & Radio journalism at night, while working in a children’s portraiture studio by day. I photographed a few family weddings during this time but it wasnt until I joined another photography studio in 2006 that I started shooting weddings full-time. In 2014 I left to set up my own and I have never looked back. I am fueled by my passion to photograph your day in a laid-back but fun way. My style is no fuss natural images, capturing your day as it unfolds. I’m chatty, sociable and I love to laugh, so I find this helps massively to ensure my couples feel relaxed on the day. I live in the sticks of West Limerick with HIMSELF, my beautiful little boy Aidan ,my extremely disobiedient dogs Gerry(a beagle) and Willow (a Golden retreiver). I have a passion for travel and interiors, in particular I love all things "quirky". When I am not working I love going to music and comedy gigs, kayaking or simply chilling with a good book and a nice glass of Rioja in our favourite little hideaway in West Kerry.

John Boynes ‘Hearts Invisible Furies’
I have quite an eclectic taste in music. It really depends on the day and my mood, from soulful Otis Redding, to screaming to anthems like ‘You oughta know’ or ‘Smells like teenspirit’. To classic 80s/90s club hits. Absolutely random
West Kerry, in god's country where we got married ourselves. Where the waves crash against the rocks and the wind whips our faces. Whether it's a walk near Clogher Strand, a pint in Paudi’s or Aidan getting cozy beside me under a blanket eating a Fishbox. Kerry Tourism Board I got your back.
Your best night out:
Meals and drinks out with friends, karaoke sesh’s and dispensing glittering life advice with a random stranger/new friend in the women's bathrooms of the nightclub, where all of life's greatest hardships are dealt with, in those brief but magical encounters.
Best hangover cure:
It’s been a while... but nobody is safe until I find BBQ beef hula hoops and a can of Fanta. Then a walk by the sea or anywhere near water.
Best piece of advice I ever got:
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”-Maya Angelou.
I try to take these words with me both personally and professionally. Always say ‘yes’ to the cuppa - give people time. I love to have ‘the chats’ and I love laughing with others, be it a friend or a total stranger. When the smile reaches their eyes, it might only be a brief second, but it's magic. It's what I love about my job too, capturing that emotion, the eye-roll, laugh or wink. It's fleeting and gone in a second, but in my job I get to capture that forever. It's actually a privilege to do this for people.
THE START OF MY PHOTOGRAPHY JOURNEY
THE NUMBER OF TIMES I ENDED UP RIGHT IN YOUR SHOES..WALKING UP THE AISLE IN A TINY WHITE-WASHED CHURCH IN DUN CHAOIN. CO.KERRY
