We always knew we wanted Elizabeth as our photographer for our wedding…whatever it was gonna happen!!

So on the day we got engagement and I found out the better half had already booked Elizabeth before he asked me to marry him….that excited me so much more for our special day.

Her work ethic, dedication to getting the best pictures and her craic factor throughout the entire day was UNREAL !. Our bridal party just had the absolute lols with Elizabeth all day and night long. It felt like she was a part of our family for the day. We wouldn’t be great ones for posing in pics, so we weren’t really looking forward to being in front of the lens for a full day and then seeing the results….BUT….Elizabeth made us feel so relaxed and comfortable and kept making us laugh so it all felt natural, like second nature to us by the end of the night.

And the results…our pictures….we just adore them, especially the ones of our friends and family been caught off guard and just so natural – they mean the most, memories last a lifetime and her pictures are etched in our minds forever of our big day out.

From start to finish Elizabeth went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, she was absolutely lovely and helped us so much especially as it got closer to the day.

I would 100% recommend Elizabeth as a photographer, she really made us feel so special and relaxed on the day itself and the weeks leading up to it.

Thank you so much Elizabeth xxxx

We absolutely loved every photo in the entire wedding gallery and slideshow that Elizabeth put together.

At the very outset of meeting her for our engagement shoot she was extremely friendly, warm, professional and fun to work with.

Thank you so much Elizabeth for capturing our day and making everything run so smoothly, we could not have asked for a better photographer.
