Natural Wedding Photography

I'm an award winning professional Dublin wedding photographer specialising in creating a blend of alternative documentary style wedding photographs along with elegant natural free style portraits of the bride & groom and of course their families.  I'm photographing weddings on a full time basis for almost 10 years now and have been featured in newspapers and magazines at home and abroad.  I'm based in Swords, Co Dublin but my wedding photography (including engagement photo shoots) is not just confined to Leinster - my work takes me all over Ireland.  I also cover the rest of Europe where every year I photograph various destination weddings.

I'm part of a small number of Dublin wedding photographers who really mean what they say about keeping it natural.  My modern reportage style covers everything from the excitement and the details of getting ready for your big day, through the emotional ceremony and some creative portraits, to you and your guests enjoying your reception.  For the most part of the day you and your guests, won’t even know I am there. Therefore your photos are more spontaneous, authentic and right in the moment.

Even though for a lot of the day I am standing back out of the way, I also cover all the more formal wedding photos of family and friend groups that you want.

I cater for all types of weddings - civil ceremonies or traditional church weddings as well as gay and lesbian wedding photography anywhere in Ireland.  My typical clients are couples who appreciate good photography and an excellent service but do not want the traditional style of stiff posed or awful cheesy wedding photographs.  Rather something more natural and discrete that will tell the story of their day.

I won't take you away for hours...!

I'm not one of those photographers that will take you away from your guests for hours on end.  If you do wish to include some photos of just the two of you away from your guests, I just need a short time and using an informal approach, I aim to make this time as chilled and enjoyable as possible.

For your portraits, I'm about keeping it natural.  Rarely are you even looking at the camera.  With this relaxed approach you can really enjoy your day, focusing on the real events as they happen!  And after all, if you enjoy the session this will come across in the photos. 

In preparation for any wedding, I will try and get to know you both as much as possible beforehand thereby ensuring that you are more relaxed with me on your wedding day. This ensures that we can achieve more natural, intimate style photographs and have a laugh doing so....!

Having said all that there are of course some couples who are a little bit more comfortable in front of the camera and would like some more posed, dramatic or fashiony (if thats a real word...!) type of photographs.  If so, no problem....  You just have to say and we will plan for this in advance...!

The party

Wedding receptions are a lot more than food and cake cutting.  I can be there for all of it.  I can document the speeches, laughter, killer dance moves of aunty Mary, and emotions of all your friends and family.

I normally stay until the first few dances but if desired I can stay for an extra hour or so.

Whether you are engaged, about to get engaged, living in Ireland or just visiting for a holiday, why not consider an engagement shoot.  I love engagement shoots as there are generally little time restrictions which means that we can take our time to get some fantastic shots of the two of you in beautiful locations.  I am happy to arrange an engagement portrait session anywhere in Dublin or indeed anywhere in Ireland.  There are loads of fantastic locations for photography and I am happy to recommend or help you choose the right place for you.
