Full Description
Welcome, I am Colin Turtle and am a photographer based with a studio just outside Broughshane near Ballymena, County Antrim in Northern Ireland.I am available for weddings across all of Northern Ireland and beyond. I love taking photographs of people and places.We can never understate the power of a beautifully presented photograph that captures a moment in time, an emotion, a character and that is displayed for all to see in a beautiful album or frame. Beautiful Photographs should be displayed and presented for all to see. Every wedding or Portrait is totally unique and I have a relaxed approach that puts clients at their ease.I like people to enjoy the experience, so that they are relaxed and you can really see that in the photographs. For me it is all about capturing emotion, fun, laughter tears and those special once in a lifetime moments and all those special little moments that only occur once.
