Rob Coakley, Mayo Wedding Photographer
Let me tell your story…
Thanks for stopping by. I’m Rob and I love photographing people in love. Most of all, I love photographing weddings and I have specialised in wedding photography for a number of years. I photograph weddings all over Ireland and the UK – I would love to shoot your big day too.
My passion for photography stems from a young age, and in 2001 I started working professionally in the field. My introduction to the industry came via architectural and landscape based photography. Despite working alongside 12 other photographers for a busy London firm, I always spent my spare time photographing people, looking for emotion and a story to tell…
I eventually decided to focus purely on wedding photography, becoming a specialist wedding photographer after it became clear that it was my true vocation, as I was always getting caught up in the emotion and passion of the day and anticipating moments became second nature. I have always felt privileged to be able to capture those special moments, intricacies and memories which will stay with a couple forever.
My goal as a wedding photographer is to capture your story in the most natural and unobtrusive way I can, looking out for beautiful, heartfelt emotions which flow throughout the day between my brides and grooms, their families and their guests. I observe quietly, anticipating where the next shot will be, highlighting those moments for eternity so you and your family can cherish them for years to come.
This style has been honed through years of study and on location work. I have become adept at sourcing situations and scenarios which lead to the most memorable and personal shots. My work is always focused on producing shots which are tailored for you and your day. I always strive to be as distinctive as possible as the day, the story and the people are like no other and that it always at the core of my working practice.
Please have a look through my portfolio and some selected shots from some real weddings. I’d love the opportunity to chat with you and show you some full albums and printed work. Please feel free to get in touch and let me tell your story.
