Tips For Taking The Perfect Wedding Photo. Donal Doherty, Wedding Photographer.

Monday, 20 February 2017
After your wedding, your photographs are the one thing you have to cherish the memories of the day. You'll want the key images captured such as walking down the aisle, cutting your cake and taking to the dance floor etc, but it's the images around this which capturing the atmosphere and the emotion of the day that will make your wedding photos truly unique. 

I love to shoot lots of detail on the day too and the details you choose show your personality. Come up with a theme for your décor and work with an event planner who can turn this vision into a reality. Having someone like Annette Hughes from Look Crafty, who styled my wedding can ensure your decor will WOW your guests and will look great in images. For that extra touch check out Etsy for great ideas on finishing touches to personalise your day. 

For your creative shoot having a stunning location like the Redcastle Hotel for your wedding photos is a blessing. I love to pose couples so they look great and then give them something to do, such as tell each other what they thought of one another when they first met, or I ask the groom to whisper a word into his bride's ear that she's never heard him say before! These interactions are natural and fun and ensure you look relaxed in your wedding photos.

There are so many amazing and varied locations at Redcastle, from the forest to the beach and of course a visit to the terrace for that iconic sunset shot that you will be sure of sensational wedding photos!
