Speakers of Snap : Paula O´Hara

I truly believe that the decisions you make in life, the experiences you have, the places you’ve been, the skills you acquire, all collide to make you the photographer that you are today

I took the long way round into wedding photography after a career as a designer for 12 years. My interest in weddings began whilst working as a designer on bridal magazines. Around that time my children were born and everything changed.

I picked up the camera again, purely to document as a mother and realised the impact photographs could have on the heart when loved ones were in the frame.

Some of the staff on the magazine noticed my photos and I started to get commissions. Since then I’ve never looked back.

With photography I felt something more than I ever felt as a designer, a fulfillment, a bliss, a heart-racing need. The fire was sparked, and it was deep within my soul. I have always struggled with words. It’s a discovery of pure joy when you realise you can communicate a feeling or a story with images alone, and others feel it too.

That universal connection leaves me in awe everytime. That’s not to say there aren’t vulnerable days when photography breaks my heart, and I’m walled up in frustration. It’s that ever-elusive perfection, always just beyond your grasp. And I can’t imagine a life without it.
