Do you want your wedding surrounded by some awesome views in Donegal, Ireland? Well, I think you can but I understand it can be hard to get people on board so I decided to do a hiking mock elopement shoot to showcase what’s possible. My relaxed, natural photography style really works for this wedding type and I have added a new “Hiking Elopement” package to my options. This is for anywhere in Ireland, not just beautiful, wild, Donegal.  I would like to say a massive thank you to Rachel and David for giving up their time for this photoshoot. I’m so happy they LOVE the pictures as I got really lovely feedback from them:

“Having our photos taken by Johnny was an absolute BLAST!!! He is so adventurous and went hiking with us through the hills & mountains of Donegal and got the most incredible, scenic shots! He really has such an eye for the lighting and scenery around you. His talent and creativity are unparalleled. But more-so than that, he really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera (even if one of you is extremely photophobic). We were genuinely having the best time waltzing through the fields with Johnny. He is the nicest, up for anything kind of guy. He really captured raw emotion and love between us and made it so effortless on our part. It was the best experience with him as our photographer and we will definitely be using him for future life celebrations! if you’re looking for professional, relaxed, un-posed & natural photos, Johnny is your man! Thank you, Johnny, for a wonderful day and beautiful photos!! ♡R&D”

Traditionally elopements are where the couple run off and get married in secret before returning home. Friends and family are disappointed to have missed out on the big day… Elopements today are completely different! Imagine wild moors, dense woodlands, sweeping vistas. Breezy mountaintops, muddy boots, wildflowers. Your absolute fave people, an officiant, AND YOU TWO.

You don’t have to do it completely alone – having 10 or 20 of your people attend is still a lot easier and more enjoyable than herding 100 people around. So if the thought of making small talk with distant relatives and plus ones and doing the first dance in front of 100 people brings you out in a cold sweat and has you running for the hills – then why not actually just run for the hills? And bring me to you…

I offer an Elopement package that includes:

  • Travel to anywhere in Ireland
     • A knowledgeable planning buddy (me!)
     • Photos via downloadable online gallery
     • Elopement package prices range from €1000 to €2500

If you’re planning an adventurous elopement, you’ve come to the right photographer! This is my specialty and where my heart lives. Dust off those hiking boots and get in touch! HERE
