Wedding Photography | Wedding Videography 

Bokeh Photography & Film is a tiny collective, with an enormous passion for weddings. We deliver images and film unique to our couples, focusing on your personalities, and the fire that makes you who you are as a couple.

We understand that picking a wedding photographer and videographer is one of the most important decisions you have to make right now. We have developed a deep sense of what it takes to give you an experience to remember. Our style is authentically driven and inspired by the moments ‘in between’. So, if you’re a couple looking for a very controlled shoot on your day, we might not be the right fit for you. If, on the other hand, you crave photos and video that represent who you are, then we’re the bunch for you. We are here not just to capture your day, but to guide you through it. Our biggest goal is to create a fun, unique, and meaningful experience for you, both on and off camera. We’ll not only document the most important moment in your lives, but collaborate to make it as magical as can be.

Bokeh Photography was amazing, we are so delighted to see all our beautiful photos. From the first time we met Dez for our pre wedding shoot he put a very awkward and camera shy couple at ease. On the day Dez was so subtle and non-invasive. He made everyone feel so comfortable and captured the day in such a natural way making sure the photos didn't take over the day. Debbie was also amazing to deal with and always so quick to reply to any and all queries in the lead up to the wedding. From start to finish nothing was an issue and everything was arranged with ease. The slides show of our photos was a lovely surprise and such a nice way to look through all the photos. The personalised website that stores our photos is also great and makes sharing the photos with family so easy. The quality of the photos are amazing. We booked Dez because we wanted our day captured in a natural and easy-going way, and we got exactly what we wanted. Thanks again Dez, Debbie and all at Bokeh, you captured our day perfectly and now we have these beautiful photos that we will treasure forever xxx

Dez, Tim and Debbie were absolutely fantastic on our wedding day. They were very responsive in the lead up and always on hand to answer any questions. They were on time on the morning and great fun. They made the photographs very natural (no awkward posing! We are not natural models!) and comfortable. They even had about 15 stunning sneak peak photos sent to us as we sat down to dinner on our wedding day. We couldn't recommend this company more. It was like having friends with us to take our photographs and video. We can't wait to see the rest of their work. They helped to capture our day so perfectly in the first few photos we have seen, I'm so glad we had them with us.

From the moment Agnes walked through the door, she put everyone at ease.The images we received are beyond anything we could have imagined or hoped for. They are amazing! As we went through the pictures, we could feel the atmosphere of the day. She was such an invaluable part of our day and captured it so perfectly while keeping us all calm and relaxed in the process. We cannot recommend Bokeh enough. So professional and friendly to deal with and always so prompt in responding to us.

Dez and the gang were nothing short of super human on our special day. The whole team were kind, thoughtful and caught every single aspect of our day. They honestly felt like part of our family for the whole day. As for the quality of the photos. We cannot say how perfect they are. The light hearted real vibe they captured is something you can only get with people who are pure talented. We know we made the right choice in picking Bokeh photography and anyone is lucky to have them on their day. Dez, Debbie and the gang. Thank you. From the bottom of our hearts.

If you are looking for a photographer/ photography team to make your day as seemless as possible this is the one for you, from the day one meeting to the wedding day we found Dez, Debbie and team to be nothing short of incredible, the professionalism of the team was excellent but what we most enjoyed was the bit of fun we were able to have and the easy going chats we could have walking along for our next pictures. Overall the experience with the team was amazing and you will not regret booking with this team.

Bokeh was an absolute dream to work with from start to finish. Debbie worked to ensure that our experience was tailored to our needs and was always super speedy to respond to messages.. Agnes was such an amazing addition to the wedding - she fit right in and never stopped running around, ensuring we had all the shots we could possible want. All of our family and friends were raving about what an incredible job she did! Thank you so much Bokeh Team!

Dez and Matt were absolutely fantastic on our wedding day and Debbie was so helpful in the lead up and always on hand to answer any questions. They made the whole experience very easy on everyone, it all was so natural and made everyone feel comfortable. Sometimes you'd forget they were even there!! We couldn't recommend this company more.

We had Dez and Agnes shoot our wedding in Glasson Lakehouse on June 2nd 2022. We were going for a relaxed vibe and they put both of us at ease from the minute they arrived on the morning of our wedding :) We are so happy with our photos and we are so happy that we chose Bokeh as our wedding photographer. Dez and Agnes made our day extra special and went with the flow of the day. A huge thanks to Debbie who was always prompt with her replies to any queries we had on the lead-up to our wedding day. We would highly recommend Bokeh Photography to anybody who is planning for their big day! Rachel and Dara 2nd June 2022

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer! It was an absolute honour having Dez, Agnes and Liam as part of our day. From the first meeting with Dez I knew he was the photographer for us, light hearted, fun, up for anything with a wicked since of humer! I knew he would fit right in with our crazy bunch. Bokeh has many packages to suit everyone and I don't think you could pick a bad one with the quality of the work they put into it. The professionalism shown by everyone on day was second to none. Dez and team captured everything that I had asked him to do and more. And its true what he says, you will not even notice that he's thare! The craic was mighty to say the least. Thanks again for everything! Karen and Kenneth.

We contacted Bokeh with only a few months to our big day. Debbie the 'awesome' lady who helped us get organised, was helpful, friendly and reassuring. We had Agnes come capture our day and we could not have been happier. Having looked at her portfolio, we could see she captured a mixture of posed, candid and scenic shots which was just what we were after. She was friendly and didn't just make us feel like she cares, she really did care about us and our day. She was everywhere and nowhere in capturing the special moments - some of the photos we didn't even know she took! She fit into the day like one of the family and our photos read like that. Our photos had me smiling, crying and reliving the whole day from morning prep all the way through to dancing the night away. The looks she caught people make that are so representative of them are amazing. Agnes is one in a million. I cannot recommend Bokeh and Agnes enough.

We booked Bokeh with not too many weeks left until our celebration and they immediately responded! From there on, every communication we had with them was professional, friendly, and extremely smooth. On the day of our wedding celebration, Dez was absolutely amazing - he was eager to capture the natural moments and the best candid shots, and was really easy to deal with. The photos turned out even better than we expected and fully captured the joy and laughs of the day. Would highly recommend Bokeh to anyone!

We we’re lucky to have Agnes as our photographer on our engagement and wedding day. She takes wonderful photos and has a pleasant personality. My wife doesn’t like posing for photos but she got along with Agnes very well and we got amazing results! As you won’t feel pressure, we were just enjoying the moment. Debbie, their manager, was very accommodating. She responds to all my queries and it feels like no hassle doing business with them. I can’t recommend them enough. Goodluck to your growing business and hopefully we cross our paths again.

From the enquiry process right through to receiving our stunning pictures and videos, everything was exceptional!! I can not thank Dez, Matt and Agnes enough for capturing our special day so so well!! Dez and Matt came to my house the morning of and slotted right in, we barely noticed that they were there and took so many pictures that I never knew were even being taken. Agnes captured the boys on the morning and it was so great to see what went on at my now husband's, house. On the day we unfortunately weren't blessed with the sunshine and it rained consistently throughout the day however, this did not impact whatsoever on our pictures or video. The creativity created by this team was second to none and we now have the most amazing gallery to look back on of our special day. We are both so thankful that we chose Photos By Bokeh and can not recommend them enough. The service and quality of what we received was far beyond our expectations. Thank you so much guys!! Whoever books you for their wedding is most definitely in for a surprise ????

We booked Bokeh after doing some research on different Instagram pages. I really didn’t want posey/set up shots and Bokeh showed that they were more about catching a moment so we enquired through their website about pricing and packages. This really sealed the deal for us as their package offered loads and the price was so competitive! Dez and Matt were so nice to deal with and had a really calming effect on us all. It rained upside down and inside out ALL DAY! Dez and Matt just changed it up and got gorgeous photos regardless of the weather. One thing I didn’t know I wanted but they gave us was pictures of all our tables during the speeches. It was so lovely to see our guests reacting as the day had been such a whirlwind I can barely remember the speeches let alone anyones reaction! Our photos are so gorgeous and just so real life that I had to contact Dez to see could I add more pages to our album as I couldn’t whittle them down any further!!! I would definitely recommend Bokeh to other couples particularly if you are into something a bit more contemporary or less posed!

This is long overdue , Apologies Dez. We had Dez and Bokeh Photography at our wedding at the Castle Oaks hotel in County Limerick in August 2021. We cannot thank him enough for the amazing work he put into capturing our day the way he did. We are over the moon with the photos , videos and the drone footage. Dez and Bokeh went above and beyond for our special day , this included helping Nicole with a surprise video slide for me from all my friends and family in Australia which was amazing. He was flexible on the day and was super relaxed letting us enjoy the day and blended in. We would both highly recommend Bokeh to anyone !! Massive thanks Again Dez ! Cheers from Australia

Dez and his team at Bokeh photography were beyond brilliant from start to finish. Even before the wedding, Dez kindly threw in an engagement shoot halfway across the country, where we got to know him and he got to know us (our good and bad sides!!). We treasure these engagement photos which were taken in my husbands home town and it is something Bokeh didnt have to do, but went out of their way to add this personal touch. From there, we knew we were in good hands. On the morning of the wedding, you feel instantly at ease with Dez and his team. You dont even realise they are there, sneakily taking the most amazing, natural and beautiful photographs. Bokeh are the hardest working suppliers in the business, covering EVERTHING from the girls getting ready to our first dance which didnt start until 10pm!! They never seemed to take a well earned break, and the footage and photographs we received back show all the hard work that went into them. I cannot recommend Bokeh highly enough. My friends who attended the wedding all want him for theirs and are devastated when their dates are gone. You truly will not be disappointed if you chose Bokeh. Thanks again Dez, we cant stop looking at your work.

If anyone is looking to book a photographer for your big day look up bokeh photography. Dez is just unbelievable. We had him do our wedding last Tuesday and from start to finish he was perfessional, dedicated and respectful of your wishes. His pictures are out of this world if his sneak peek is anything to go by. He just blended in the morning of the wedding, you will not realise he is taking any photos at all. Which was ideal for us, as both of us hate getting our photos taken. He was like a member of the family. The guests even complimented how good he is and how nice he was to everyone. Debbie his assistant is even a pleasure to deal with on the lead up to the big day. Never did either of them add any stress as the big day fast approached. Id give them an 11/10 for anyone who asks.

Myself and my husband got married on the 2nd December '19 in Cabra Castle. We specifically booked close to the Christmas period not just because its our favourite time of year, but to accommodate the beauty of our wedding photos. We consider ourselves blessed to have booked Bokeh Photography. We sat with a glass of wine and eagerly awaited our photo's to upload (in which the presentation was impeccable) and were over the moon to see an array of beautiful photo's to document the day. Our collection was sprinkled with glistening lights, christmas tree's and magical backdrops. Thank you again Bokeh Photography for your patience, precision and talent, for managing to capture the most wonderful day of our lives and particularly for capturing the fun everyone had.

'Creative, light-hearted, fun, relaxed, informal and happy' – this is how we would describe our wedding day. Dez managed to capture this in his unique story telling photography style. The emotion of the day was captured beautifully, with a keen eye to attention always in evidence. Dez was brilliant to work with, from our engagement shot to our wedding day. The engagement photo call was a great introduction to Dez and his style which was so professional and friendly. We felt relaxed and at ease in front of the camera. On the morning of our wedding, Dez was great. A bride’s house is so busy but Dez made everyone feel so relaxed, chilled and he captured the most amazing images. He went above and beyond everything from the bride’s house; groom’s house; church; outdoor scenery setting and reception hall. We were conscious to document our guests mingling, chatting and enjoying the wedding atmosphere in a natural, informal style. Dez captured this beautifully. We can fondly look back at images of our guests acting naturally and enjoying our wedding day celebration. Confidence in your vendors is key to any wedding preparation. We fully recommended Bokeh Photography to all future brides and grooms!

Dez was the picture of professionalism, fun, kindness and calm. He went out of his way to get to know everyone and guests spoke afterwards about how they felt so comfortable in his company. This was so important to us from the moment we met Dez we knew that he was the right choice. From the engagement shoot to the wedding, Dez was happy to talk about our vision for the day and showed such creativity in bringing it to life. Dez captured moments that I will cherish forever - my husband and I couldn't recommend him highly enough!

From start to finish Dez was so professional and attentive to our needs and wants. His work is so beautiful I was delighted he was available for our big day. He went above and beyond for us as our wedding day was an absolute washout he put our minds at ease and arranged to take our outdoor photos another day when sun was out and I couldn't of been happier to get dressed up for a second time. We recieved our photos very quickly after. Excellent service and affordable prices. He doesn't know it but he will be our family photographer from now on. Could not of been happier with the results.... Hardest part is picking your favourites to get framed without turning our house into a gallery. Looking forward to working with Dez again in the near future. Photography is an art, this man is a true artist and I am a huge fan.

Oh wow guys! Thank you so much! I loved being a part of your wedding, and you were both great to get dressed up again so we could get those photos most important to you.

When everything was said and done, and the wedding blues had finally kicked in as the day we were planning for 18 months had come and gone, Dez at Bokeh photography sent us an email which would bring us right back into our wedding bubble. Our photos arrived and it was like living the day all over. We were familiar with his work as we decided to book an engagement shoot as a sort of trial run. Needless to say we were so impressed with the photos he returned to us that we booked him straight away. (I was slightly surprised he took the booking as we dragged him all around Dublin, from the Guinness store house, to Howth head and back again haha) On our wedding day we opted for the second shooter which Dez offers in one of his packages. That allowed for both morning preparations to be captured and something we would have never thought of ourselves. His experience became invaluable to us when it came to the small details like that. As you can imagine, you have a lot of people to talk to on your wedding day, and it was like Dez managed to capture each conversation just at the punchline. He spent the morning shooting my wife and her family and he struck up a great relationship with them (including 6 year old molly, who refused to smile until he won her around) The day our photos arrived, the champagne was popped and we both cried, AGAIN. Such a nice reminder of the best day of our lives. And now Dez photography is placed all over our home. We couldn’t him highly enough. The above probably doesn’t do him enough justice, but you really won’t be disappointed if you choose Bokeh. Niall and Lisa Kelly

Working with Dez was the icing on the cake for our wedding day. We traveled to Ireland from the United States and Dez graciously worked with our tight schedule, showing understanding and flexibility along the way. He took the time to get to know us while bringing wonderful energy and creativity to our sessions. The photos were brilliant and my husband and I are still so grateful. Truly, it was like having a trusted friend as our photographer and we look forward to sharing a pint with Dez next time we're in Ireland!

Thank you so much! Probably the sweetest, most intimate wedding I have ever had the pleasure of working on. You two were just so much fun. From our blast around Galway city on your pre-wedding shoot (customary pints in O'Connell's too), to your beautiful ceremony, I loved every second of it. Thanks again! Dez

I originally chose Dez as his work looked beautiful and he seemed so down to Earth. My husband and I are very laid back and Dez made the day so relaxing. I barely knew he was there the whole time. He listened to what we wanted and went above and beyond. I love our engagement shoot and wedding photographs and would highly recommend Bokeh photography to everyone. Thanks again Dez!
