Wedding Photography

With the endless to-do list for a wedding, the most significant aspect of wedding planning is always placed at the back burners; the wedding photography. Out of the many aspects included in a wedding, photography is essential - it is the concrete remnants of the most special occasion in your life.

The wedding photographs are what are left when everything has been put away and packed up – the photo will be a part of history for your grand kids, and their grand kids. So, it’s important that these look special, capturing the most invaluable moments.

Wedding photography is one of the perfect ways to commemorate your day. You have one chance to capture the love, the feelings, the atmosphere of every moment, so choosing the right photographer can be the difference to capturing this, or simply capturing generic photos.  If your wish is to have a unique, fun and beautiful day then you may regret not being able to capture all of this to its fullest.

It’s fine for friends and family to part take in their own wedding photography  sessions, taking photos from their own perspectives; however, when all's said and done, having professional and quality pictures would produce something unmatched, something priceless for generations to come.

Another significant aspect of wedding days are the rare get-together.  Our day to day routines let us down in that they fail to keep us in touch with old friends and far away relatives. A wedding re-connects you with old memories, and thus creates new ones.

A wedding isn’t just about the unification of two people. It’s about bringing together two peoples families, friends and lives. A wedding resonates in the hearts and minds of all these people, and in that way, the memories are important for everyone.

So all in all, decide how you want people to remember your wedding day.  Research and look at possible wedding photographers and their portfolio. Have a chat about your vision, the right photographer can add a vision that you may have never thought of, and produce something beyond your dreams. With an unending amount of wedding costs and wedding decisions to be made, just don’t skip on the memories!

Wedding Photographers - Memories Are Forever

When people start planning for their wedding day, researching everything from the perfect venue to the prettiest bridesmaid flowers, the price tag is generally at the forefront of their decisions. Although the budget may be tight, everyone wants their wedding day to be as flawless, priceless and memorable as possible. This means deciding what to prioitise (a dress is usually top of the list!) and what to try skimp on. As humans we are generally programmed to want instant gratification. Everything is focused on how you feel on the day.

You want to feel happy in a beautiful dress, a beautiful venue, eating a delicious cake. Things that won’t give us instant gratification such as wedding photos however, are generally not top of the list and this is our downfall. After the wedding however, as the months and years become more distant and every detail a little less vivid, you will want something  that will not only remind you of memories, but will be the very memory – capturing everything in the moment from feelings and thoughts. So, failing to prioritise photographs and focusing solely on short term gratifications will lead you down the wrong path; as the saying goes - memories are forever and photographs are priceless.

Choosing to hire a professional photographer for your wedding is vital if you want it to last more than a day.  To do this, professional wedding photographers is the only way. Apart from budget and timeless memories, there are many more benefits to this, including delivery, quality and convenience and vision.

Delivery

Working with quality professional wedding photographers can give you and your families an assurance that you will get what you want and more. With years of experience working with different clients expectations and visions, professionals truly understand the emotion involved in the day and a truly committed to capturing your dream day.

Timing, delivery and execution are three of the most important aspects of photography, each take a keen eye, and  each have massive effects on the quality of the photographs, which brings me to my next point.

Quality  

Everyone wants quality. Everyone has a budget.  Hiring the right photographer can mean the difference between blowing your budget or simply meeting it. A quality photographer doesn’t have to cost a bomb. However, if you pay too little, you risk getting poor quality. Experience, talent, skill and passion all combine to increase the quality of your photographs and the right photographer will have all this, plus a little extra. Having an expert, equipped for every situation, ready for the task, and seizing every moment missed can’t be overlooked! On a day when there’s no room for mistakes, hiring a professional is the safest way to keep at least one part special.

Convenience              

No one wants to see their guests spending their time taking photos, you want them to enjoy the day and be relaxed. With that, no one wants someone inequipped missing photo opportunities, or needing directions for the day. So let everyone relax, take the stress away from yourself and guests, and simply hire a professional photographer that you can trust. You won’t regret it.

Cliffs of Moher wedding photography

Cliffs of Moher wedding | S+D

I always like the idea of exploring new locations and taking pictures for couples in places that I never visited before. Cliffs of Moher wasn’t a new location for me, but this was my first time taking wedding pictures at this amazing place! Plus, I always wanted to do a Cliffs of Moher wedding anyways and David and Sheila offered me the perfect opportunity to do such a thing!

Upon talking with them, I immediately started to like their enthusiasm for the photo shoot and how much they love each other. Their love story is outstanding, and it manages to show that love can and will always end up overturning any type of obstacles. It works, and it manages to deliver all of that in an incredible and unique way.

When we started the photo shoot, we are a bit afraid that the weather will not be in our favor. But it turns out that we were afraid for nothing, as the weather turned out to be very good and the entire photo shoot was a lot of fun. Sure, it was the windiest day ever, but in the end, we managed to turn it around. It was exciting for me, and both David and Sheila also enjoyed the entire experience.

Sheila had an outstanding dress that you just can’t find nowadays. It was an impeccable, one of a kind greenish dress that not only looked great in real life but which translated perfectly to some impressive photos.

Plus, the locations this couple chose for the photo shoot was second to none. Cliffs of Moher is one of the most impressive places in Ireland, and the entire photo shoot was a memorable one. Yes, we did encounter some issues with the weather, but the bride was right, this was indeed an incredible place for a wedding photo shoot.

The couple was kind enough to offer me some extra time at the Golden Hour. This allowed me to bring in front some really exciting experiences and I am very excited with the way everything turned out!

Plus, the wedding was plenty of fun, the guests were very happy, and everyone was laughing and having a good time. I wish David and Sheila all the best, and I certainly hope I will get to work with them very soon on other projects!

Congratulations to Sheila and David and thank you for your trust and letting me be part of your wedding day. It's been an honour and  privilege to be your wedding photographer.

If Carlsberg did wedding photos.....

We are so grateful to Greg for helping to make our wedding day so perfect! He made the photography sessions great fun. Greg has an eye for detail and his landscape shots turned out to be stunning, really dramatic and beautiful. This was the main reason we had chosen him as our photographer and the results absolutely lived up to our expectations! He also photographed so many little details throughout the day and captured lovely moments of our guests without anyone even noticing. Greg is very calm and reassuring - our wedding date was due to have torrential rain and I had been worried, he then offered to stay an extra night so that we could schedule a "Plan B" couple photoshoot the next day if the weather turned out to be a disaster. Thankfully we didn't need it as the sun came out after all, but this shows how he will go the extra mile to ensure the couple are happy. He also sent the photos really quickly after the wedding which was a nice touch. We were absolutely delighted with Greg and were so impressed with the quality of his shots. We would 100% recommend him for your engagement shoot, wedding or any type of photoshoot involving outdoors scenery. Thanks again Greg & Iwona!

If you are planning on  having a wedding at Cliffs of Moher or would like to elope to Ireland please get in touch. I'll be humbled  to be your wedding photographer in Ireland.

Garden wedding in Ireland | A + N

If you are looking for inspiration for DIY garden wedding in Ireland you must see this story. Anna & Niall's big day was simply beautiful and you can see it in every single detail. They put so much effort to prepare one of a kind, unique decor that matched just right with the artfully landscaped home garden in Wicklow.

Their celebration was a reflection of them as a couple and really you couldn't ask for anything more from a wedding. The day was filled with plenty of happy smiles, lovely people, great music and gorgeous food.  Overall, their wedding day had a relaxed, personal feel and  honestly I love every little bit of it!

Having a DIY garden wedding Ireland is a perfect alternative to a venue wedding. I hope it inspires your own...

Congratulations to Anna and Nail and thank you for sharing your love story with us.

Barberstown castle wedding

Where to start with Sinead & Gary's wedding at Barberstown Castle. These guys are truly one of the ​loveliest couple I've ever met. Watching their love and joy on the day was really inspiring . I'm forever grateful that they let me be part of their day.

​Sinead & Gary decided to have their first look at Castletown House in Celbridge. I always love the idea of the first look before the ceremony as this gives us plenty of time to capture some intimate moments between the couple. These two were just so incredible to photograph,  it makes such a big difference to see couple showing their love like that! I never even had to direct them and it all went so natural and so relaxed, just the way it should be.

Their beautiful emotional ceremony took a place in Bareberstown Castle and it is always nice to go back to this wedding venue. There were so many incredible moments during the day. I've met a lot of wonderful people, witnessed so many hugs and smiles, pure joy and love. Just a perfect wedding day. I just fell like I meet and work with the best people on the world! I simply love what I do.

Congratulations guys and thank you for your trust and kindness. It's been a honour to be your wedding photographer.

These pictures are just few highlights from Sinead & Gary's wedding at Barberstown Castle.

Choosing Greg to document our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made! From the moment he arrived at my house the morning of, he was so professional and at the same time was so relaxed & kept everyone at ease. He blended into our wedding day perfectly and captured every moment brilliantly. When we saw our photos we were blown away, it was like reliving the day again. Every shot was perfect, thank you so much Greg! Highly recommend! Sinéad & Gary

Killaloe hotel wedding | A + R

I have been waiting to share this story for a while now.
When I first met Anneke and Robert I got the feeling that their wedding is going to be amazing and I was not mistaken. Their wedding day was simply beautiful and I was inspired by the connection between those two. There was magical, simply exceptional musical setting during the ceremony, which took place at  St. Flannel's Cathedral. But what else could I expect knowing that Anneke is a passionate musician herself.
One of my favourite moments of the day was the time when we could sail away on a little private cruise to admire the stunning landscapes of the river Shannon. This gave me a chance to create some wonderful photographs of the couple. The whole day was filled with love and happiness which makes the day unforgettable.
Congratulation Guys! And Thank You for having me as your wedding photographer.

"We are so thrilled we chose Greg to capture our wedding day. He captured every special moment of the day with beautifully artistic and authentic images- we never felt like we were having to "stop and pose". Looking through our photos really brought back the feelings of the day- but while the day goes all too quickly, we will have the photos in our home for all our life together. We couldn't have hoped for better images and we're so glad we were lucky enough to have him!

Greg was fantastic on the wedding day, fun and professional (the perfect mix!) throughout the day. He and Iwona were also extremely helpful the whole way through the booking process, so even before the wedding day, we were absolutely confident that things would run smoothly. We can't thank them enough."

Dublin Wedding Photography | Howth Wedding | S + N

Dublin wedding photography

It was very typical Irish day. Lots of clouds, showers before ceremony with some sunny spells, but nothing could overcome the joy and delight of Susi & Nial's wedding.  It was an absolutely magical day, filled with lots of laughter and tears of joy. It is always a big privilege to be part of such a happy and important event. Susana was getting ready at Marine Hotel in Dublin followed by very personal and touching ceremony at St Nicholas of Myra Church, Malahide.

We couldn't miss the opportunity of visiting spectacular views that Howth has to offer.  We have to say big thank you to Susi and Nail for giving us extra time and trust that let us create beautiful wedding portraits. Throughout the session there was non-stop smiling between these guys and it was such a joy for me to witness their love and happiness. So here is their short story.

 

Congratulations to both of you and thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer. If you are looking for Dublin wedding photographer please get in touch.
