Aine & Paul Wedding Day

Aine & Paul Wedding Day – and what a day it was. I met up with Aine & Paul around lunchtime on the day of their wedding, 30th July 2021. It was a small wedding but so intimate. There was Aine & Paul along with their son Lorcan and both sets of parents. The set up at the Everglades Hotel was just perfect. The service was quick but just lovely. We then went to St. Columb’s Park in Derry for some photos. We got some family shots in and around St Columb’s Park house. Aine, Paul and I then just had a little walk around some of the park and then went on to the Peace Bridge close by.

I get to photograph people with their soulmates! My daughter Bronagh and parents have always been and always will be a big part of my life. We have shared so many moments and enjoy looking at older photos and laughing together. Moments and the moments between moments during a wedding or a portrait session hold so much emotion. I love to capture images in a fun, natural and classic way. I’ve been passionate about photography for years, from the darkroom to my digital camera today, and storytelling is at the heart of what I do. I’m Gerard and I look forward to telling your story.

Lucia and Craig Wedding

Lucia and Craig Wedding. What a day. On what was one of the hottest days of the year the wedding of Lucia and Craig took place at the Beech Hill in Derry. A gorgeous outdoor service took place in a wooded area of the grounds. The setting was perfect. In an unusual way, the bride’s parents both walked her down the aisle. Preceding them were there two gorgeous daughters who were spreading rose petals. After some drinks outdoors the family and friends went indoors to eat in the beautiful setting that is Beech Hill.

Laura & Chucky Wedding - Derry Wedding Photographer - Donegal Wedding Photographer

Laura & Chucky’s Wedding

 

Laura & Chucky’s wedding took place recently. They both met at the altar in the Long Tower Church in Derry. They both live in Derry so not too far to travel for both. Due to Covid Restrictions, the wedding was very limited in numbers but that didn’t stop them having a great day. On what was the most gorgeous day’s weather the couple took their vows and then went to Drenagh Estate near Limavady. I have been to many weddings here and it really is a fabulous location for any occasion.

When they arrived, they got a quick glass of champagne and then we went for photos in the fabulous grounds. The old house is also a fabulous place for photos.

Georgina & Stephen Engagement

Georgina & Stephen engagement – these two  have been together since they were young teenagers. Eventually, Stephen popped the question and, of course, the answer was yes. Georgina and Stephen got engaged during the lockdown due to Covid. True love conquers all so Covid was not going to stop them getting engaged. I met up with them yesterday evening in Derry City Centre near the Guildhall. We went for a short walk around the Walls and just had a little bit of fun with the camera. Stephen was just letting on to be shy lol. We do have an unusual shot of the lady dipping the man, that is usually in reverse. Anyone who knows Georgina will know that she works out a lot in the gym and is well able to compete with the men.

Original Aran Company Commercial

Original Aran Company Commercial

I recently got some images for the Original Aran Company. The client was looking for high quality images for a brochure but also to be able to use the images online also. This was not a problem. I have a portable studio which allows you to shoot images all year round. Our weather is not very reliable so indoors it was. We were lucky on the two days we did the photos as the weather was wet and windy. Jessica Doherty is the lady in these photos. She is excellent to work with as well as good fun.

The Original Aran Company has 35 years experience in producing high quality Aran knitwear are pleased to present their latest collection of soft merino wool and wool cashmere garments and accessories for women men and children.

Hempful Products

Hempful Products

Hempful Products is a photo shoot I did recently. Hempful are located at Campsie near Derry so it was great to help out local people with product photography. I took some samples and had some fun with different images. I went to an Grianan in Donegal for the background and also to Mussenden Temple on the North Coast for more background images.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD, or to give it its full title, Cannabidiol, is one of the most prevalent compounds found in the plant Cannabis Sativa. It is non-psychoactive, completely legal and a major health-boosting ingredient. Full spectrum CBD oil is the most effective and most beneficial.

What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

The difference between Hemp and Marijuana is night and day. The term Marijuana was used by the Federal Bureau of Narcotics in America in the 1920’s to refer to recreational Cannabis. At the time cannabis extracts were widely used in medicines and other food products, so the department criminalized cannabis by association with Reefer Groups and the term Marijuana became the street name for recreational cannabis.
Hemp on the other hand, although a Cannabis plant, never did make it as a recreational drug. It doesn’t contain the psychoactive compound, THC, which causes the high. Therefore you could smoke fields of Hemp and never get high. When Cannabis was officially banned Hemp feel under the bus with it. The understanding today is Marijuana gets you high, Hemp gets you healthy.

Claire and Seamus Wedding

Claire and Seamus Wedding

Claire and Seamus wedding took place recently at the Waterfoot Hotel in Derry. Like most weddings of 2020 it was affected by Covid therefore numbers were very limited. Only close family and friends were there to see them tie the knot. Just because the numbers were small didn’t take away from the atmosphere. The guests who were lucky enough to share Claire and Seamus big day were lively and noisy. The newly wed couple got a massive cheer when it was all sealed with a kiss. Both the bride and the groom looked gorgeous.

Gormley’s Strabane October 2020

Gormley Shoes Strabane

I went to Gormley Shoes, Strabane for a Local Women Magazine Photoshoot. It took place in October 2020 for the November magazine. I asked Yasmin to model again. We have worked together quite a lot over the last couple of years. She is very good at what she does and is always great fun. We got the hair and make up with Valerie Kennedy in Eglinton. Again, Valerie has always helped out and as always produced fantastic results. I went to Gormley’s Strabane October 2020 to get the product for the shoot. Declan who owns the shop is my brother in law so always good to see him. Gormley’s Strabane October 2020 was another great shoot. Many thanks once again to Declan, Yasmin and Valerie for helping out in this shoot.
