Some of the Best Proposal & Engagement Photography in Ireland

Book an engagement photo shoot and get some time in front of the camera with some fantastic pre-wedding photographs to use for your invites, a signing book or an engagement album!

Proposal & Engagement Shoot

Engagement Shoot / Love Shoot

A Love Shoot otherwise known as an engagement photo 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 Love Shoot on your wedding invites or on your wedding website if you wish. Expect to receive approx 70 to 80 images from your shoot in high res & print ready.

I travel to you for your photo shoot to a location of your choice. That could be your home, a local park, beach etc… It’s 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 – €350

Recently 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 usually due to hiring an inexperienced wedding photographer and/or allocating a low budget for photography. 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 over the past few years, I had an increasing number 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 4 additional packages.

The Wicklow Experience

The Dublin mountains and beautiful County Wicklow are right on the outskirts of Dublin allowing incredible photographic opportunities.

We have mountains, valleys, streams, rivers, ancient buildings, lakes, forests, small twisty Irish roads and even a deserted mining village….! We are spoilt for choice but ultimately we will end up with amazing photos of the 2 of you in beautiful countryside with amazing views. Return home with photographic memories of a lifetime to share with family and friends.

Wicklow Experience – Option 1

€675

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 Wicklow mountains and starting our photographic adventure. 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…!!

Included – half day shoot, Skype call to discuss and agree our route, hotel collection & drop-off; travel, photo shoot at up to 6 different locations, private gallery containing all your edited images, high resolution, un-watermarked & print ready. High res images ready for download within 10 days.

Wicklow Experience – Option 2

€450

This is a scaled down version of Option 1 for clients who have less time on their hands and also either have their own rental car or I can collect & drop off from a local train station.  We will work at 3 different locations over the course of approx 2.5 hours. As with all my other shoots, I normally try and schedule this for the evening time if possible when the light is better and where there is the chance of a sunset.

Included – Skype call to discuss and agree our route, photo shoot at 3 different locations, private gallery containing all your edited images, high resolution, un-watermarked & print ready. High res images ready for download within 10 days.

Cliffs of Moher

Proposal/Engagement Shoots by the Cliffs

A shoot by the Cliffs of Moher / Hags Head (this is a few kilometres south along the cliffs with a lot less tourists) and also potentially one other location close by. If you want to spring a surprise proposal on your partner, it can be easily arranged…! Including travel time you are looking at approx 2 to 3 hours in total. There is a little bit of necessary hiking involved hence the longer duration. However if it takes longer due to waiting for some passing rain showers to pass, that is not a problem. There’s pubs we can go to..!! 🙂

Session includes:

  • Skype or FaceTime call to plan the session & answer any questions you may have.
  • Private gallery with all your images available for high resolution download, fully edited and print ready.
  • We meet at Cliffs of Moher and we start our journey..!

Cost – €495

Do you want some photos like these...?

All Ireland Experience + Free Album

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 what is possible and agree a plan for the day. On the day, I will collect you from your hotel in the early morning and we will set off with me at the wheel. We will spend the day stopping off at various agreed locations before arriving at your accommodation in Dublin 12 hours later. 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 – €1800 – included full day shoot & sightseeing (12 hours), hotel collection & drop-off; travel; private gallery containing all your edited images, high resolution, un-watermarked & print ready; Complimentary 30 page album size 25×25 cm containing all of your favourite images shipped direct to your home.

Click below to see a few of the highlights from an engagement shoot comprising of a trip from Dublin to the west coast of Ireland. Starting in Dublin in the morning and ending at sunset at the Cliffs of Moher in Co Clare. This was an epic day and my clients were a fantastic engaged couple from New York who went all out to experience Ireland and get their engagement photographs in some amazing scenery. Their included album will be amazing…!

How do we book?

Booking is simple.

Firstly, I recommend that we schedule a Skype or FaceTime call to figure out the best locations & time for you. I can also take this time to answer any questions that you may have.

Once we know where and when, we just need to confirm the reservation. To do this I require two things;

  • payment of a small booking fee (20% of the package cost)
  • completion of a contract (for my insurance)

Both the above are done online and are quick and easy. Once I have both back from you, it is in the calendar. Closer to the time of the shoot, I will firm up a start time and meeting place.

The balance of the fee is paid at the time of the shoot by either cash or card.

Within 10 days your images will be ready for viewing and download via your online gallery.
