I was shortlisted as one of the 10 finalists in The Creative Photographer of the year for 2020 in the prestigious Irish Wedding Awards.

In 2016 I was listed as one of the top three wedding photographers in Ireland in The Loveweddings Survey.
Over the years a selection of my photographs have appeared in various wedding related magazines.
In 2015 another of my weddings was chosen to feature both on the cover and supported by a 5 page feature inside of a new Irish based wedding magazine called Irish LGBT Weddings. This couple were also featured in a 5 page spread in another magazine titled Brides of Kerry.
In 2014 one of my weddings, Aengus Mac Grianna a newsreader with RTE and his partner Terry Gill featured as a 4 page spread in the July issue of VIP Magazine.
I believe in giving my clients exactly what they want in terms of my photography services. My motto is : "It's your day so lets do it your way"
This can best be achieved by getting to know what your requirements and expectations are and I find that the easiest way to do this is by means of an initial, casual, no obligation chat followed by as many complimentary meetings to finalise plans as each individual requires.
Beautiful stunning photography comes naturally when everyone is relaxed and comfortable with each other and this only happens when I get to know a bit about my clients and they feel happy with my easy going personality.
At a wedding I try to blend in as much as possible with family and friends on the day so that hopefully they will not be conscious of me and my cameras as I record the craic the atmosphere and the emotions of the day.
I love it when the couple see their edited photographs after the wedding and are constantly amazed at the photographs depicting what they may have missed during the day. There is so much going on for the couple and their families that they cannot possibly see everything as it unfolds but it is my job to capture as much as possible of these enchanting moments that they will treasure for many years to come.
When I am taking portraits, either family, child or environmental portraits I try my best to capture the character of the people involved rather than just a straight boring photograph. If I am photographing a family group I try to depict the interactions between the various family members.
If you would like me to take stunning photographs for you please do not hesitate to contact me. Testimonials Client viewing Contact
