I’m Hannah, a wedding photographer based in Northern Ireland.
It almost seems like a dream for me to be typing out an ‘about me’ page on my very own website. I picked up my first camera when I was 14, after begging my parents to buy me one for Christmas. My dad being the smart man that he is decided to get me a cheap little point and shoot (I may be known for being a bit faddy!) so that I could see if I really took to photography or not.
Fast forward almost 10 years and I’m even more in love with it than ever. Spending my teenage years photographing my friends set me up for a passion that only keeps getting stronger.
Zooming through my teenage years; I did my A Levels, got all set up to go to university in England to study film, decided when I got there that actually I didn’t want to go to uni at all and I moved back home. In 2015, Hannah Julia Photos was born.
What drew me to photography in the first place was simply moments. For me, photography is all about capturing people as they are. No static, uncomfortable looking poses or awkward group shots.
On your day I let things unfold naturally, capturing the moments as they happen. Real. Messy. Honest. Beautiful. When you look back at your photos I want it to be exactly as you remember it. Not contrived or moulded by me. In other words, they should be completely and utterly you.
And while I try to be as unobtrusive as possible when I’m photographing , I am 100% involved in you as a couple, and your guests. My favourite part of a wedding is getting to know your tribe! So don’t be alarmed if you spot me crying behind my camera during the ceremony, or having a boogie with your mum later on! Most importantly, I’m there to make sure you have the best day of your life.
So let’s do this! Get in touch so we can chat about capturing the biggest day of your life. Fill in my contact form to get the ball rolling!
