In general most of our clients are looking for the best. So are attracted to hear why we are one of Ireland’s top wedding photographers. To keep that standard, our quality of service is always the same, we deliver as best a service as we can.  Because, we feel, with wedding photos, there really is no second chance.


How our prices can differ is that we have a variety of packages to suit different couples and what they require. Whether you are eloping and only need one photographer for two hours, or you want the full package where you’ve got two of the top Irish wedding photographers for the entire day (with the added bonus of hundreds of high-quality creative images and a printed photo album), we’ve got something for you. Our full-on packages start at typically €1,695.00.

I like to supply a finished album together with a USB of images as I find a lot of couples have the best intentions but sometimes never get around to completing their album themselves so I do all the magic airbrushing and photoshopping for you. Albums are proofed and sent out for approval before going to print.

A number of packages are available with coverage from the fun of getting ready to the 1st dance and everything in between. Prices will range from €750 – €1700.

My packages change quickly as market demands and I’ve always got new ideas of ways to offer something new to my couples. Sometimes bespoke packages can be created in collaboration with the couple.

Currently I always offer my direct and immediate support to the couple. All digital images taken without watermarks and a selected set of photos fully edited.

Travel fees are always included in my packages. 

Cinematic Wedding Film is also available. I work in close touch with an amazing filmmaker.

Currently my Packages start from €1300 up to €3000.
