I love to feature Irish photographers I’ve recently discovered on the the blog, and that’s why I’m so excited about this post – a romantic engagement session set in the lovely Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry, captured by Tara Donoghue Photography.
Although Muireann and DJ Eric have known each other from childhood (Muireann’s mam and Eric are from the same place), romance blossomed for them when they were studying in Cork. And like the great romance of the movie ‘Once’, their first encounter involved a vacuum cleaner. “One night Eric and Alan, his housemate and a friend of mine, came to my house and asked to borrow the hoover,” says Muireann, “and then we clasped eyes on each other, and that was the begining of our love affair!” It wasn’t as straightforward as that though.
Fast forward ten years of life getting in the way and the couple meet again… a month before Muireann is due to leave for a year abroad. “Three months later I was back because I missed him so much! And now were getting married and going back to Oz to start our new life as husband and wife!”
What I really love about this shoot, apart from Eric and Muireann’s fantastic chemistry, is the light and the fact that it looks like it could have been shot in Ireland, America, or Italy. Beautiful stuff. Guys, I wish you all the best for married life and your Aussie Adventure!
