Alex and Fran 02/06/2016

Alex and Fran’s wedding was just one of those weddings that we really thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish .
It had everything – a handsome couple , lovely location Castle Oaks Hotel Castleconnell and above all incredible weather – over 25 degrees mid-day .
It also featured some firsts for us – outdoor ceremony and the first time we also did a ‘ fusion ‘ shoot – photography and wedding film on the same day .
We launched our film business Insight Films earlier this year to allow us become a multimedia business and this fills a gap in the market and puts us in a unique position as a wedding service provider – wedding photography and film under one roof .
The style of our wedding films is in direct keeping with our photography – relaxed , candid and unobtrusive.

Designing albums

Designing our weddings albums is really as important as the standard of wedding photography we achieve year in year out . A good album design with carefully chosen candidate images really shows through when we show clients their wedding photography for the first time . I suppose our belief in doing a draft design for clients before their viewing makes life a lot simpler for them . With the high image count that digital media allows , it becomes a significant task asking a client to come back to us with their selection of images for an album design . So our philosophy is simple – to do an initial draft which is open to iteration helping clients visualise what the final album design could look like .

Gillian and Eoin 28/02/2015

Congratulations to Gillian and Eoin on their wedding 28/02/2015 .
I must say that weather forecast coming up to the wedding day was not looking great but we still managed to get some really nice outdoor photography on the day .
What I really liked about this wedding photography shoot was the sheer amount of very natural photojournalistic photography we got on the day .. lots of little moments candidly captured with little or no intervention needed by us.
This really lends itself to producing a very documentary style wedding photography album and to be honest is the hallmark of my style as a wedding photographer .
The mood in Gillians house the morning of the wedding was really buoyant and so relaxed and this comes across in the images we captured , it was almost like I was shooting a documentary !
The girls were just gorgeous dressed in purple with co-ordinated floral bouquets .
The church – St.Mary’s Athlunkard is not a church we have photographed many weddings in , but I must say it looks really well with loads of open space to photograph the wedding in real comfort .
The reception was in The Woodlands Adare – a firm favourite with couples and a venue we have covered many many times in the past .
We managed to get to two locations in Adare with the bridal party – the ever popular St.Nicholas Abbey and we also got in a little time in the village before the weather closed in – so lucky because we have a really nice shoot in the bag !

Forever Autumn with Gwen and Ronan 25/10/2014

We really enjoyed our time photographing Gwen and Ronans October wedding . Such an intimate and cosy wedding it was made so by the church location – St.John’s Cratloe and The Mustard Seed Ballingarry Co.Limerick . Funny that the next wedding we will feature on our blog also has The Mustard Seed as its hotel location .
We had a house call to Gwen’s parents house in its lovely sylvanian location at the edge of Curragh Chase . Gwen’s sister and brother had travelled quite a distance back from the U.S to be at the wedding and this made for such a real family get together and it was obvious by the warmth and friendliness of Gwen’s family .
Gwen dressed in a lovely Kelly Green dress for the occasion which looked great for an autumnal wedding .
We normally spend about an hour for our morning photography calls before we head off to church – the Shannon tunnel is really a God send in saving time getting to the church .
With only immediate family at the church it was really an intimate occasion for us to photograph . A 1 pm ceremony time gave us plenty of autumn daylight and the weather was co-operating to get some really nice wedding photography images of the couple in the church grounds. Onwards then to Ballingarry and The Mustard Seed for such a great welcome in this really small but intimate wedding venue which is renowned for its cuisine and warm welcomes .

Our New Portraiture Site

We are currently implementing a brand new portraiture photography site . Launch date is planned for late October .
It will feature all aspects of portraiture as well as its own dedicated news and blog sections . It will be accessed from our splash page or independently by going to –
Because wedding photography and portraiture photography are quite diverse we decided that to offer the best possible online experience , having a dedicated portraiture site to compliment our wedding photography site is the best approach .
We know you are going to enjoy the new look portraiture site so please watch this space as we roll it out shortly .
We can also be followed on Facebook

Sarah-Ann and Andrew 30/08/2014

Big congratulations to Sarah-Ann and Andrew on their wedding 30/08/2014 .
It must go down on record as the longest continuous time we spent on a wedding day!
We featured two morning calls to both the groom and bride . We started with Andrew early in the morning at The Dunraven hotel in Adare and what a fun time we had with the guys we really enjoyed our time with them .
The weather really held up that day and we got some great images both in and outside The Dunraven – the grounds are really so lush and well maintained .
Next up was house call to Sarah-Ann’s house in Boher Co.Limerick – god bless my Samsung smartphone the navigation got me straight to her door .
Sarah-Ann just looked stunning on the day and her level of preparation was perfection .
Videographers on the day were Dreamcatcher and we met them at Sarah-Ann’s – so easy to work alongside .
We normally spend approximately one hour for brides house call and in this case the church and Boher was located very close-by – ideal for us .
We decided beforehand that UL campus would be our photoshoot location of choice , funny thing when we got there is that there was another wedding shoot going on with fellow Limerick photographer Dermot Culhane on the job – great minds thinking alike – purely by chance meeting up !
We got some beautiful wedding images down along the banks of the river and in and around the campus .
Most of our weddings these days we are on extended coverage which means we are on until first dance .
We even got some extra time to do some night time photography with the couple down on the street using continuous tungsten lighting to assist us .
This is so well worth the time because it really gives full photographic coverage on the day and just gives so much more material to work with when designing the wedding album .

Congratulations once again Sarah-Ann and Andrew we really enjoyed photographing your day ! email

Wedding enquiries 2015-2016

We are currently booking heavily for wedding photography 2015-2016 .
The last three months has been extraordinary in the amount of new enquiries and firm bookings.
While for us as wedding photographers it is incredibly encouraging seeing people invest in quality photography , it can lead to dissapointment for prospective new customers in that we are either booked or have enquiries against same dates .
Our advice – dont put it off contact us soon for your enquiry or to book a wedding photography consultation at the studio .
