Recently I did an engagement session with Francis and Greg in Belfast, her home town. He’s an American boy from Maine, shes a Belfast child, and they fit so good together, it’s hard to describe with words. I love Belfast from the first time I’ve been there and loved this opportunity to do an engagement session there. The city has a unique character and it’s so easy to fall in love with it.
Before the shoot we decided to go to a pub and chat about the wedding a bit. This was the first time we met actually since they both live in the States now. We did the engagement session on Monday, and the wedding was on Thursday. It was all so fast but what a ride 🙂
A pint of beer in one of the most iconic pubs in Belfast, The Duke of York was a perfect choice. We also spent time chatting about the past, moving places, changing jobs and what may come in the future. After a short while I had a feeling like I was chatting with friends over a pint of beer.
They were so lovely, funny and wonderful.
Awesome Cathedral Quater
We first stuck around the Cathedral Quater for few shots. This area is probably the most significant and popular area in Belfast. It’s one of the oldest parts of Belfast but “more recently it has re-emerged as a dedicated ‘cultural quarter’ of Belfast”. Then we went to another iconic monument to the industrial past of Belfast- H&W. Those yellow cranes tell the story off their own. We were there just to enjoy the view.
