Trudi & Aaron's wedding in Portadown Northern Ireland
Recently I attempted to try out some model photography and I asked Jamie, an instructor at my local gym if he had done any model photography. He hadn’t but he agreed to give it a go and I have had several photographic sessions with him.
It was through this work that his mother inquired if I would photograph her daughter’s wedding blessing.. Trudi & Aaron were married in Mexico but they felt it right to have a blessing at their home church for their family and friends that were not able to travel to Mexico.
When arriving at their mothers home for Trudi's make up and hair, Jamie, his sister and family were so welcoming and friendly.
When I travelled to Aaron’s home for the guys getting ready the fun was totally apparent and this give a foretaste of the spirit of the day.
Below are some of the photographs from their wedding at St. Columbus church, with reception in Portadown Town hall, Photographs at the Secret Garden in Bachelor’s Walk, Champagne reception at the town hall and evening reception in Portadown Golf Club.

I thought I had placed photographs taken for Wolfwear Athletics in the blog before now, but on checking it has dawned on me that I have not. Wolfwear Athletics has been a project under taken this year which has been so rewarding for me personally. It all started out one day in the gym when I over heard a conversation with Teresa who I have photographed with a lad. He had or was in the process of designing his own sports range and was looking to get a photographer. I approached Ryan, introduced myself and offered to help him if he wanted by shooting his range for him.
Aaron Donaghy asked me a couple of weeks back if I would be able to photograph his centre for the purpose of getting some images that he can use for his online presence. It was a joy to meet up and see the various activities taking place. Aaron is located in the Banbridge business Centre and has two buildings. One he uses for Cross fit and on the night I took the photographs there were two groups active. His other building is a dedicated gym, with various machines and a load of free weights. That night was leg night and the group of about 18 or so guys were all doing a circuit of the leg exercise, supervised by Chris. Aaron also is a physiotherapist and specialises in ART, Active Release Therapy, which has seen him gaining an ongoing reputation in the entire country for helping so many out of pain and injury. So here are a few images from that night which show the activity and fun that can be gained through training.
