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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kaily Photo Shoot in Derry

Kaily Photo Shoot

I went along to the Waterside railway station in Derry for the Kaily Photo Shoot. We met Kaily a couple of months ago. I noticed her walking along the river Foyle in Derry.  Just had to ask to take her photo and she said yes. She is just so natural at posing and loves getting her photo taken. The first photo shoot was only a few minutes long. This time we met at the railway station. I had the platform shot in mind but we also got some images at the riverside. It was a cool evening but dry and nice. We fortunately got permission to go onto the platform where it was quiet. Then we went over the side of the river where we got some nice lights of the town in the background.

Aaron’s First Communion

Aaron’s First Communion

Aaron’s First Communion took place on 30th September 2020. A Family Communion is always a special day. Strange time for a communion due to Covid. We met at the Craft Village in Derry City Centre just after the service. The weather was good to us if only a little cool. Aaron’s first communion was a bit of craic from now on. We walked around the Craft Village where there are so many great places for photos and then went onto the Derry Walls which has many spectacular views. We used the area around the Guildhall a lot with great background views. I got the kids jumping around which helped to relax them. The kids really enjoyed it when i got their mum and dad to do the same lol.

Dobbins Family Communion

Dobbins Family Communion

The Dobbins Family Communion took place this week where  Finn was the star of the show. His father Simon was trying to be the star but just couldn’t do it this time. We met at St. Columb’s Park House early evening and the weather was just lovely – a little cool but nice. This was basically a family photo shoot. It turned out to be great fun. I know Simon and the family so the craic was good. We just went for a walk around the park. We ended up at the swings with all the kids. Some kids had to move so we could get some photos but they were ok about it. The usual parents kissing above the child photo was great fun with poor Finn cringing and his mum and dad loving it of course.

Photoshoot for local PT Derry

Fitness Shoot with Aidan Doherty Fitness

 

Fitness Shoot with Aidan Doherty Fitness based in Skeoge Business Park was a good laugh. I called to the gym and although I had some ideas, so did Aidan lol. I actually attend this gym and have been since January. Everyone is great fun and more than willing to help and support each other.  Then there is Ryan who is affectionately known as Hitler lol. He loves it of course. Attending the gym has been a great experience. Aidan has created in my opinion something special. Both Aidan and Ryan try and get the most out of you at the time. That said, they do keep a close eye on us all when at the gym and exercising. They both pay a lot attention to the overall well being including mental health of their clients. I have had gym membership in the past but this is very different in a good way. This of course is only my opinion but the other members I know would agree I feel sure.

A little about me.
