Get some time in front of the camera and some great pre-wedding photographs to use for your invites, a signing book or an engagement album!

Engagement Shoot

A Love Shoot otherwise known as an engagement shoot, is an informal pre-wedding shoot arranged before your wedding. Not only is it a great way to get to know me – your photographer, but it totally prepares you for your actual wedding. It’s enjoyable and you quickly have a set of professional photos.

The advantage with a Love Shoot is that you get used to being in front of the camera and you get to know and be comfortable with my informal way of working. This is also your time to experiment and try out a few things and will help you know exactly what you want for your wedding day. It totally prepares you for your wedding photographs resulting in even better wedding images as you are much more relaxed and know what to expect. The time spent on your wedding day is also utilised more efficiently as you know exactly what to do so you start your wedding day photo session running. You can then use the photos from the Luv Shoot on your wedding invites or on your wedding website if you wish.

I travel to you for your photo shoot to a location of your choice. That could be your home, a local park, beach etc… Its up to you…! You can also choose what sort of look you want. For example, most people go casual, some go a bit more formal and some a bit of both. Again, it’s your choice and it’s something that we can discuss beforehand.

Cost is normally €300 but a reduced fee of €200 applies if you have already booked me as your wedding photographer. Session includes 60 to 90 minute photoshoot and travel within Dublin county. I offer also few extras for you to choose like a Guest Signing Book, A4 size, 30 Pages – €95; Album, 25x25cm, 30 Pages – €350; or a Framed Print with extra wide mount for your guests to sign on your wedding day – €195.

If you’re looking for an engagement photographer in Dublin, contact me to discuss further.


From 2017 I’ve expanded on my engagement shoot options for a couple of reasons. Firstly for those couples who are already married but are unhappy with their wedding photos due to hiring an inexperienced wedding photographer. This happens more than you would think but can be rectified by dressing back up again and having some photos captured properly in a great location and at a time where the light is at it’s best.

Second reason is that throughout 2016, I had a lot of visitors from the US & Canada in particular visiting Ireland and looking for an engagement shoot, elopement photography or simply a photographic session in various locations of Ireland. Some visitors wanted a bit more than what we could fit into the normal 90 minute session so I am now offering 2 additional packages.

The Wicklow Experience

The Dublin mountains and beautiful county Wicklow are right on the outskirts of Dublin allowing beautiful photographic opportunities. Here we spend an entire morning or afternoon or maybe late afternoon/evening (in the hope of capturing a sunset) starting with me collecting you from your hotel, driving to the Dublin mountains and starting our photographic adventure. We have mountains, valleys, streams, rivers, ancient buildings, lakes, forests, small twisty Irish roads and even a traditional Irish pub or two….! We are spoilt for choice but ultimately we will end up with amazing photos of the 2 of you in amazing countryside. Our time concludes when I drop you back at your hotel. So you don’t need to have a rental car or worry about travel. Really, all you need are a comfy pair of shoes…!!

Cost – €650 – included hotel collection & drop-off; Travel; Private gallery containing all your edited images, high resolution, un-watermarked & print ready.

All Ireland Experience

For those who have more time on their hands and/or want to experience more of Ireland then this is for you. Ireland is a small country and with some exceptions you can get to most places and back within a day. Here the possibilities are endless. Maybe you are a Game of Thrones fan and want to visit the Dark Hedges – no problem… Whilst we are there, we can also visit the Giants Causeway a world heritage site. Close by Donegal has amazing scenery and deserted beaches. Or perhaps a visit to the West of Ireland taking in the Cliffs of Moher, Galway and unique landscape of The Burren. Sunsets on the West of Ireland can be spectacular… Just saying….!!

Either way, you make a suggestion and we will have a planning session via Skype in advance to see whats possible and agree a plan for the day. On the day, I will collect you from your hotel in the early morning and off we go in a very comfortable spacious car. We will spend the day stopping off at various agreed locations before returning to your accommodation in Dublin that evening. With an all day shoot, we do have the luxury of time on our side where we can wait for the rain to stop or the light to get better. The weather is very changeable in Ireland so if we do have to wait it’s usually not that long. You will leave Ireland with amazing memories and amazing photos.

Cost – €1200 – included hotel collection & drop-off; Travel; Private gallery containing all your edited images, high resolution, un-watermarked & print ready; Complimentary 30 page photo-book size 30x20cm containing some of your favourite images shipped direct to your home.
