Romantic Couples Portraits at the Cliffs of Moher // Clare, Ireland // Justin + Zoë

December 11, 2017

In the beginning of November I joined my friends Brandi & Kamra (both photographers) in traveling to Ireland. We set up a shoot at the Cliffs of Moher and it was BREATHTAKING. I mean some seriously awe-inspiring beauty. No wonder it’s the backdrop for so many amazing movies

Some things that you may not know about the Cliffs of Moher; first of all, it’s a death trap to get there. Not only are the roads incredibly narrow, but you have buses passing you as you wind up and down the hills of the Ireland coast. Once you get to the cliffs there is a parking lot and a welcome center … parking is pretty expensive as they charge per person. The cliff views that they have are also enclosed by a barrier. If you drive down about 5 kms you will see a place to turn in on the right. Parking is only charged per car and they have some GREAT unrestricted views. Make sure to be careful though as the cliffs are constantly eroding and parts of them can just fall off. I saw that photo after we got back and my stomach may have dropped a bit. 

After seeing that The Princess Bride was filmed here I got really excited when Zoe showed up wearing a red dress. It gave me all of the feels of Wesley and Buttercup. Can’t wait to go back and revisit this beautiful spot with a little more time to explore around!

I’m going next May, and Cliffs of Moher is my #1 goal to photograph at. Thanks so much for sharing. Any other photog tricks/tips?

Hey Addison! You’re going to have such a great time! What lenses are you taking? I would just make sure to bring something wide and something long so that you’re able to vary your images. Are you primarily going to be taking landscape photos?

AHH! I my dream is to get married/eloped on the Cliffs of Moher so these photos are totally pulling at my hear strings! That red dress against all the greens of the cliffs is stellar. You totally killed it, my dear!
