1. REAL EXPERIENCE.  An experienced wedding photographer will not only have the best knowledge of the best Irish locations and venues to make the best photos but they will have the experience to allow you to experience the best day you possibly can whilst getting amazing meaningful images. Some photographers take up a lot of time on the day with overly posed images or going too far out of the way on location. I love scenery in wedding photos but I 100% love to give balance to the photos you are aware of as much as the photos you don’t know are being taken. Hiring someone that knows how to handle weather, light, tight timelines, or even something not going the right way is pretty essential to ensure you can have the very best day and be left with images that allow you to relive your wedding day time and time again.

2. MEANINGFUL PHOTOGRAPHS.  Its easy for a photographer to focus on just one are or style of photography on the day whether it is you typical classic wedding photography, reportage documentary photography or photography with creative lighting or composition. It is really important to me to capture amazing portraits of you on the day but also to remember what the day is about. Most of my day ends up to be moments that happen on the day, I love to focus on expression, reaction, interaction and connection between you and your family/friends to create meaningful images that will take you back to real moments that happened on your day along with some really gorgeous images of you both.

3. PEACE OF MIND.  One of the best bits of advice I can give to make sure you get as many natural images from your day is “To allow your photographer to capture as many natural moments on your wedding day you need to be as comfortable as you possibly can be to allow for natural moments to happen”. Booking someone that genuinely wants you to have an amazing day will allow you to have trust in them to capture the images to tell the story of your day and make sure you get the best photographs to preserve your memories from the day.

4. RELIABILITY & PROFESSIONALISM.  Booking a photographer with over ten years experience should give you the confidence that you will have someone at your wedding that will know how to deal with various situations that may arise on the day, someone that will have a close network of wedding professionals to make sure everything goes as it should. I often get complimented on my patience and also the relaxed manner in which I approach weddings, this is something I am proud to incorporate into my work and in turn it makes my clients happier but also means my images will also be better.

5. TIME.  One of the biggest reasons that wedding photography is so important is because most things only happen once on the day of a wedding and having an experienced photographer will ensure you make the most of the time you have on the day. Although all weddings may not have the same itinerary, hiring an experienced professional wedding photographer will ensure the formal parts of the day are taken quickly leaving you to enjoy your day and leaving your photographer to capture those natural real moments you can relive in the future.

  • What can I say ed you are AMAZING!!! We got ed on a recommendation from a friend, from the first meeting with him he talked us through the whole day from start to finish. He was so professional and knew he was the one for us!! He is such a lovely guy nice and relaxed and is very talented. Met him a few days before wedding day and again talked us through his and our ideas for the day. The morning of the wedding he was brilliant he just did his thing and worked away capturing amazing shots! From the church to the reception he was very discreet. We didn't have the best day weather wise but it didn't matter as ed took so many great pictures inside we did get a few outside which again were just fab!! We have just received our slideshow and pictures and we love them!! Such a great variety of pictures not just of us but of our guests, the venue, the details of the hotel etc. so many happy memories were captured that day and we will treasure them forever!!! So again ed thank you so very much appreciate all your hard work Best wishes Caroline and Colman
