When it comes to engagement sessions in Ireland we are spoiled for choice. From Dublin to Donegal, this beautiful country has so many amazing places and each county offers its own unique landscape and light, whether you’re looking for images of breathtaking scenery or a more urban environment Ireland has the perfect backdrop for you! If you are planning to have an engagement session in Wicklow this post is for you!
We absolutely love photographing engagement sessions and capturing all the excitement and love between our couples. We also love to showcase authentic locations that a couple can enjoy together. It’s so much fun getting out there with you and finding the right spot.
Our natural approach allows us to create a very relaxed experience during the engagement sessions where couples get to enjoy each other’s company while we capture some amazing photos and films that will last a lifetime! The sessions are also a great way for engaged couples to get comfortable in front of the camera and to practice for the wedding day.
About the couple and their engagement session in Wicklow
Paula and Vitor are from Brazil and they were travelling to Europe on holidays. When Vitor got in touch saying he was planning to surprise Paula with an engagement session here in Ireland, I got very excited for two reasons : One because Paula is also a photographer and her work is fabulous, and two because he wanted to do the session in Wicklow, one of the places she was most excited about and dreaming to visit.
He was trying his very best to make it so special for her and I thought that was so sweet! As a nature lover Wicklow is also one of my favourite places to photograph! It’s not difficult to understand why: we have Glendalough, The Guinness lake, Sally Gap, incredible valleys and mountains.
He officially proposed to her a few days before their flight and their session was a lovely way to celebrate their engagement! They were amazing to work with and they had so much fun, allowing their personalities and love to shine through! We captured some really special memories they shared.
Paula and Vitor's kind words:
“Emmylie I had to tell you my experience being in front of your lens as a client but also as a photographer. Vitor knows how much I love the movie P.S.: I love you and that one of my dreams was to see some of the places where the movie was shot! He proposed and organised our celebratory trip and even more: he found a photographer to do an engagement shoot for us. And he found YOU! When he showed me your work I got even more excited about the session.
I fell in love with your work but I must say that your energy and personality made everything even more special. As a photographer I love the way you guided us through the session making us feel so at ease and relaxed to show our love for each other. I was so anxious to see how the photos turned out and we LOVE each one of them!
We love all the photos, the experience of being photographed by you and for one of the most special memories we will carry for the rest of our lives! Thank you for capturing these memories and for being part of our story! You are amazing!!!”
