Laurie & Dave


Hello, I’m Laurie! Travel is what makes me smile. Luckily as a professional Irish dancer I got to do a LOT of that while I was growing up. After my dance shoes, my camera was always the first thing packed in my bag before a trip .Wandering around new cities and theatres capturing different landscapes, experimenting with light and photographing friends performing on stage was something I really enjoyed. These experiences moulded and developed my love for photography. It’s been an amazing journey so far and I feel so privileged to be able to call something I love so much my job.


Hello, I’m Dave! Photography has been a part of my life now for longer than I can remember. Growing up on the beautiful West Coast of Ireland definitely helped and a love for surfing and being outside meant I got to learn my trade while making some of the best memories. Years later and with countless images published internationally, capturing weddings both here in Ireland and around the world is my speciality. People are my passion and telling their story is the best job in the world!

How we met? We met at a wedding. Yes, a wedding.
Well, they are pretty romantic!
Shared passions led to constant nerdy conversations and late night chats. Awake and Dreaming was born
with big plans and a bright future ahead.
