Hi! And thanks for dropping in. My name is Felix and I specialise in telling the story of your unique and special Wedding Day in a Natural, Candid & Documentary style capturing all the little moments that build into memories in a totally unobtrusive way.
My real passion for Photography all started in my early Teens whilst my friends and I completely ignored the “Don’t Try This At Home” warning found on those stunt programmes that were shown late at night on MTV. I had been gifted a camera a few years previously when moving all the way from South Africa to South Dublin to capture that journey, so naturally being the only one of the group with access to one I became by default the person to document all the dumb stuff we got up to with aspirations of being mad cool and becoming the Irish answer to Jackass.
Fast forward a few years to when my eldest daughter was born I started documenting her first days and milestones and came to the conclusion that my ultimate destiny lay outside the corporate world I had become accustomed to; that I had the opportunity to turn a passion that I truly enjoyed into my career and have more time for her (and the subsequent additions to our fledgling football team!).
My motivation, what gets me out of the bed in the morning, is the satisfaction I get from being an integral part of the biggest day of a couples journey in love. Being witness to the different ways we all love and appreciate that special someone in our lives and I always take a little something away from each and every day I witness. I love the buzz and excitement of the pre-ceremony, the intimacy of the ceremony itself, working with couples on their portraits and capturing the reception as it unfolds. I’ve laughed with couples. I’ve cried with couples. I went from an Introvert to an Extrovert almost overnight finding something that allowed me to be who I wanted to be. I might be absolutely shattered when I finish up at a wedding but it’s a happy tiredness.
It’s often been mentioned to me by couples and bridal parties that I’m not the uppity sort of photographer that they may have experienced in the past. My aim is to ensure your day goes off as smooth as possible, that you get the memories everyone deserves and most importantly that you enjoy the process.
I dedicate myself solely to Photography and as well as Weddings I capture Schools, Event, Family & Corporate photographs. I’m a full member of the Irish Professional Photographers Association, which means I meet a certain, high standard and agree to their Code of Ethics. Infact even if you do not choose myself for your big day I would implore you to ensure the photographer you do choose is also a member so you can have trust in your day being captured by a full time professional. I’ve captured hundreds of happy days all around Ireland both North & South and abroad and am fully insured to do what I do.
I can’t let this section go without mentioning the person who pushed and gave the support for me to pursue my passion as my career. She’s there looking after my diary and scheduling, planning our next move whilst juggling 3 kids, my craziness and her own career as a Paediatric Nurse. I won’t embarrass her by mentioning names but its NOT my Ma!.
