Remain in Light

Creative and modern wedding and elopement photography for the wildly in love

I’m Mairéad, a wedding and elopement photographer based in beautiful Donegal in the north-west of Ireland. I started my business in London, where I lived for nearly a decade, then moved to Dublin for a few years before deciding on a different kind of life on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal. I love both the city and the countryside, and this goes for weddings and elopements as well. I’m just as at home on top of a cliff or on top of a mountain as I am wandering through the streets of the city, and my photographs reflect that.



Photography that captures who you are

I take a very personal approach, getting to know my couples and what they want, and shooting them in a way that’s right for them.

No clichés, no cheesy poses

Aiming at people who want wedding photography that is different from all their friends’ photos, a photographer that puts them at ease and photographs that really capture their day authentically, as well as creatively. And makes it FUN!

If you’re looking for wedding or elopement photography that’s as unique as you are, you’re in the right place. If you want to have a day that’s personal and meaningful, and really reflects who you are as a couple, I’m here to help.

You don’t want a day that’s about pleasing other people, ticking traditions off a list. You want to marry your best friend, and have the time of your life doing it.


Photographs that make you remember how it felt

You’ve decided a big traditional wedding isn’t for you, and now you’re excited to plan an intimate and meaningful day for just the two of you, or with just your closest friends and family.

I’m a bit biased but I think there’s nowhere more magical to celebrate your commitment to one another than Ireland. So many beautiful locations and options, so many ways to have your day, a day that’s all about you and your love for one another. Let me help you plan the perfect elopement together.


No clichés, no cheesy poses

You don’t have to be getting married to deserve some beautiful, creative portraits of the two of you together. Maybe you’ve only been together a while and aren’t ready to get married yet, maybe you’re celebrating an anniversary or the trip of a lifetime to Ireland. Or maybe you just want some photos of the two of you together that aren’t selfies!
