The MOST AWARDED wedding photographer Dublin Ireland
Finding the Best Wedding Photographer in Dublin Ireland?
As a wedding photographer, I'm suspicious to talk about myself, so instead of recommending myself, I will recommend a list of awesome wedding photographers in Dublin Ireland that I know well and can be trusted with your eyes closed. But you might be wondering, why a photographer would recommend others in an article on his own website, that sounds very contradictory, right? Yes, I know that, and I will explain why.
I started my career as a wedding photographer back in February 2011, and since then I've photographed over 500 weddings in Ireland and around the globe, I've built solid referrals and word-of-mouth recommendations, so I'm honestly receiving more inquiries than I can handle. Since 2016 my business has thankfully flourished to such a degree that I had to raise my prices to reflect changes in supply and demand, and since the birth of my 2 daughters, I've decided to photograph only 15 weddings per year so I can spend more time with my family and also offer better attention and quality to my couples. I do not take every wedding I'm approached to photograph. It's truly important that I work with couples who share my brand values.
As I've mentioned above I only accept only 15 weddings each year, I like to get to know my wedding couples very well to ensure we are a good fit and also check if I will be able to offer what you are looking for. If after our zoom call I see we are not a good fit, I will be very honest with you and will recommend a photographer from the list below that will be more towards the style that you are looking for.
I'm more than happy to have a zoom call with you two to go through some details of your wedding and get to know each other as well. If you wish to do so, please click HERE to schedule our zoom call, and I will look forward to getting to know you. If you have any questions at all you can hit me a message on Whatsapp by clicking HERE or using my number +353873214592 and let's make sure you get the best wedding experience possible ;)

A wedding photographer based in Donegal, a proud daddy, happy husband and lover of life on earth. He is happiest when is with his people, in the sea – surfing, swimming, taking photos, rambling the hills of Donegal. He began his artistic career as a writer, for magazines, his own poems and short stories, something he still loves to do now when life allows.
Wedding photography style: INSPIRED, CREATIVE and NATURAL
He calls Donegal his home. For him it is a small slice of heaven, there is pristine empty beaches for miles, good folk to call friends, rugged landscapes to explore and photograph, good Guinness, fine food, and all the good things in life. His wee Bedford Bambi campervan is like another member of the family, she is small, fairly old, and slow but bursting with personality and memories. On a sunny summer’s day, you find them in the campervan, ice creams in hand cruising the coastal highways on their way to happiness. He shoots weddings of amazing people just like you that are in love with each other and in love with life.
Adrian is an awesome wedding photographer based in Cork. His approach throughout the day & night is mainly documentary with the exception of family portraits and on location, which means I don’t want you to pose for me or feel pressured. Documentary is about observing and capturing, but at some pre-arranged points of the day, he will slightly direct you and your families into more composed family photos.
Wedding photography style: FUN, CREATIVE and ARTISTIC
Before the big day, he would have spoken with you through the timeline for the day & evening, so everything will run like clockwork.
He doesn’t pose or set up anything during the morning preparation as I like this to be purely documentary and natural. He wants you to relax and enjoy your morning with all your girls or guys, without having to worry about him getting in the way or posing you (unless you want specific images)

Find the Perfect Venue
Some places are just so incredibly beautiful that they would look amazing without a single candle or flower. Finding the perfect venue, however, is about more than just going to a beautiful place. To get your ideal wedding photography, you need a venue that is right for you. Again, it is all about finding your own style. Decide what kind of atmosphere you would like to create because that “vibe” will translate into your wedding photos. Not sure where to begin? Check out some shots of my favourite wedding venues in Ireland to get a sense of what you love, as well as what isn’t quite your style.
Define Your Style
When you are working with a wedding photographer, it is so important to define your style. We can’t read your mind, so never assume that anything can go unspoken. Be crystal clear about what you love and what you hate.
Do you like candid shots? Traditional posed photos? Unconventional, artistic styles? Find examples of your favourite shots and explain why you love them. Show your wedding photographer shots that you don’t like as well, and clarify why they aren’t your style.
Find a Photographer with an Eye for the Perfect Imagery
To help you decide if a wedding photographer is right for you, take a careful look through their past work. Note how effortlessly they capture beauty, colours, and emotions in their photos. If you are not a photographer yourself, it might feel a bit intimidating to view something with a highly critical eye but, trust me, it’s easy! Just look for the emotion. Does the photo create a feeling that you can immediately sense at first glance? If so, you’ve found a good photographer!
