Full Description
Hi, my name is Leigh and I am from a small town in Northern Ireland called Kilkeel. I first picked up a camera at the age of 14, using it as a way to get into concerts as of my love for music. I grew up playing drums in several punk and metal bands and when I wasn’t playing drums I couldn’t get into the gigs without my camera because of being underage! I have a handsome son, Henry, a beautiful wife, Rachel, and a big brute of a dog, Juno. They’re all in the photo above! I am extremely addicted to running so there will be no doubt that I will drop this into conversation many of times automatically which I can only apologise for now! Rachel & I got married in 2018 at her parents house in the front garden in 2018, it was absolutely amazing, and bought our first home together in Annalong in 2019. So with only getting married recently I know what couples have to go through in the wedding planning process. I shot my first wedding in 2010 and I have been extremely lucky to have photographed around 200 weddings in this time. Shooting at some of the most stunning venues around the UK & Ireland with a lot of amazing couples! I treat every wedding as if I was photographing my own, ensuring you get exactly what you want and having great craic at the same time. The main thing is having a good laugh!!
