Hi girls, I'm new to this so forgive me if the message is all over the place! We are trying to find a photographer for our big day; what we'd really like would be the normal posed shots and a bit of reportage but with a kind of deep avant garde twist - think lots of sepia and black and white, any suggestions?? Thanks a million

HI There I can only recommend our photographer. His name was Douglas Gray and he was super to deal with on the day. He was so easy going and wasn't in any bodies face on the day. It was a pleasure having him doing our wedding. You should check out his web site. www.douglasgrayphotography.com and if you'd like to see a sample of our photos let me know and I'll pm u the details. :wv

Hello, Thats what l went for. I love the style of album. I got one big album and 2 med size ones and a few pocket ones too. Our photographer was super, she was sooo easy to deal with on the day. not imposing or anything. She does all sorts of work and stlyes. Her name is Carmel Williams. PM me if you want her number. Would book her again in the morning.

:thnk thanks for getting back to me so quickly - I had a look at that website and their stuff looks lovely. We had considered Art and Soul, Double Exposure, KB Photography or Paddy Gavin - has anyone got experience with these? Any horror stories? We aren't having a videographer so the photos are really important Thanks again

We went with David Knight from www.irishweddingphotgraphy.com, the service was superb and he does exactly the kind of thing you're looking for

Hi We have gone with [url:epwzjsfm]http://www.stevenowlan.com[/url:epwzjsfm] - his website is cool - we booked them a few weeks ago - their prices are reasonable - im thinking of upgrading to the album package as i just booked the cd at the moment. A friend has used grape from the north- [url:epwzjsfm]http://www.grape.ie[/url:epwzjsfm] - at her barberstown castle wedding in september they were also very good but very expensive, We met about four photographers not including the wedding fair guys - it just came to who we clicked with i suppose, as the photographers seem to me anyway to be offering the same packages and wedding albums. Just some start at 500 while some wont even talk to you unless you produce 2000

Hi Niamh, Really sorry but I haven't had any experience with any of those photographers but the type of thing that you are looking for is quite similar to what we had. We had David Rogers and he was just fantastic. The photos were just gorgeous and he was so well organised and everything that I really enjoyed all the photos while he was taking them and that reflects on the finished work. http://www.davidrogersphotography.com/ Best of luck!!!

Have a look at his website but give him a ring aswell or an e-mail,he is so into his work.
