Hello!  We are Rory and Catarina.

Weddings, for us, are a celebration of human connection.  We seek to capture vibrant scenes with lots of personality and interconnectedness.  Our focus is on real people and real moments – nothing staged or scripted.   We believe that authentic imagery is always more meaningful and interesting than anything we could force or fake.

Our “let it happen” philosophy means we won’t impose on your day.  We hear it all the time from our couples – the wedding day goes by a flash.  Aside from any quick portraits you might like us to take, we encourage you to just forget about us and cherish the moment with your loved ones!

We rely on natural light and use minimal equipment so we can effectively blend into the background.  Using a discrete, fly-on-the-wall approach allows us to document the epic and intimate without interrupting the natural flow of things.  We revel in capturing those spontaneous moments of joy, humour, beauty, vulnerability (sometimes absurdity!) and if we are lucky – revealing some truth about the human condition in the process.

We offer photography or videography (or a combo option for those wanting both).  We are invested in telling a comprehensive story of the day – all the magic and mayhem, from start to end.  That’s why we offer 2 shooters and unlimited hours as standard on all our packages.  Travel costs are usually free within Ireland and the UK but will apply further afield (we’ll keep these to a minimum).  Over the past few years, we’ve been lucky enough to have captured celebrations in France, Croatia, Italy, Spain and the US.

To enquire about your date or our packages, you can get in touch here or below.  We would love to hear your plans!

That missed call was me exploding in ecstatic joy on the phone; you are probably lucky you didn’t answer. We are absolutely blown away!!!! I can’t stop smiling after having seen it. Honestly. I know I’m biased but I think it’s the best wedding video I’ve ever seen

“It’s so fun and exciting and full of love. Every time we watch them we cannot stop smiling the whole way through, I cried when I watch it first and I know Olav had tears in his eyes too, it brought back all the feelings again.”

To us, our wedding was happy, relaxed, lots of fun, with just the right amount of emotion and it’s all captured perfectly.

Oh my god, that is the best wedding video I’ve ever seen, what a great song choice! I love that song and it goes so well. So many shots of people laughing hysterically, which is obviously what you want in a wedding video. Everything looked beautiful, obviously I cried like a baby through the whole thing. How good were the shots of everyone dancing at the end!? Mostly I am relieved it wasn’t a cheesy video I had to lie about liking!
