Fiona Jamieson Photography, Northern Ireland wedding photographer

Wahoo, it’s almost the weekend, and a long one at that! I can’t tell you how hard it has been this week to try and get back into work mode. I love my work dearly, but well I’d rather be lying on a beach in Monaco, wouldn’t you?! But, we’re slowly getting there and working on lots of amazing projects to bring you in the next few weeks, but today we’ve been having a chat with the loveliest of photographers, Fiona Jamieson. A self-proclaimed hugger, Fiona’s big heart and love of love is infectious! Find out what makes her tick below…
