Alan and Deirdre’s Wedding in Tralee
I’m a professional photographer and I’m a member of the Irish Professional Photographers Association (IPPA). One of the great benefits of being an IPPA member is the community of photographers. They can help each other, sometimes at very short notice. This wedding was one of those rare occasions where the photographer who was booked for the wedding needed help. He was due to shoot this wedding and the one the day after. Sadly his Mum was very ill and passed away. He called me to see if I could cover and luckily I didn’t have any weddings that weekend. I had a few portraits but they could easily be re-arranged. So… he sent me all the details, we had a chat on the phone and he called the couples who were very understanding and delighted that he’d already arranged cover without leaving them in the lurch.
It was a bit strange turning up having not met the couple but they could not have been nicer. Everything went to plan and they even braved the winds to go down to the cliffs for a some dramatic shots! The reception after was in the lovely Ballygarry House in Tralee.
