WONDERLAND BIRTHDAY SHOOT, THE CAKE SMASH ALTERNATIVE

First Birthday photography in Northern ireland. As family photographers we love that our customers can come back to us again and again. We have been working with the McFarlane family from the very beginning of Pop...this little princess' big brother has had all his special moments captured from he was 3 months old and is going to big school this Sept. We are super proud!!!

So when mum got in touch to see if we could come up with something different for Isabellas' very first Birthday, we took the opportunity and flew away with it!!! We love to work closely with all of our customers to make every session unique and are so so happy with the results!! Definitley one for the Pop catalogue! We cannot get enough!!!!  #BUBBLESandBALLOONS #welove #yourstory #yourway #popfamily

NORTHERN IRELAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY, TULLYGLASS HOTEL, AN ANNIVERSARY.

This day last year we were in the middle of Mr & Mrs Hunters gorgeous Wedding at the Tullyglass Hotel....definitely not the heat we have today, (the job of a Wedding Photographer is as unpredictable as Northern Ireland weather) & if I remember right, we definitely dodged a few showers!! But that did not discourage us...we snapped all the way into the night and music was provided by our very own Pop Events NI.  1 yr on and we have remained firm friends. Happy Anniversary guys, thank you for believing in us. #popfamily #poplove #blogaversary

COMMUNION PHOTOGRAPHY, BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND

Hannah and Mark. Belfast Castle. From Australia to Belfast

What am amazing day this was. Hannah and Mark travelled over 10,000 miles to get married in Ahogill, Marks home town. This is what made this wedding so beautiful.  The two families coming together from opposite sides of the world and joining as one.  

Everything from the service to the tea party in the church hall to the evening party in Belfast Castle was just great 'craic' or as the say Down Under a real 'ripper of a day' 

Service: First Ahoghill Presbyterian Church
