At our initial wedding consult meeting, Claire told us she’s always dreamed of having her engagement photos taken on the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. She grew up there and they now live in Dewey Beach, Delaware but visit Claire’s family in Ireland several times a year. They both have countless treasured memories there together, which we loved hearing about while we were planning this trip over the last few months! They are so playful with their banter and making fun of each other, so they laugh constantly. Jim told us he loves how passionate Claire is about everything – she feels things vividly and brings so much life to his world.
We knew we wanted this session to feel very Irish… we wanted to use stone castles, cozy pubs and the breathtaking cliffs. We planned out a half day shoot where we traveled to several different locations. The weather was holding out for us most of the afternoon and we even had some sunny skies for a few hours! By the time we got to the cliffs in the evening, the weather was misty and overcast with fierce wind pounding the waves on the rocks below. It was muddy, wild and perfect.
There were so many pinch-me moments when I just stopped to look around and take in the incredible scenery. I still can’t believe we were lucky enough to shoot with such a fantastic and fun couple in one of the most beautiful locations in the world! Thank you, Claire and Jim, for bringing us here and trusting us with something that means so much to all of us. We can’t wait for your wedding next year!
