'Giving you, your wedding day to remember'

I am an Irish photographer based in Dublin but provide church, civil ceremony and civil partnership wedding photography nationwide (without surcharges). Flexibility & freedom of choice is important for me and so from the first contact to handing over your wedding memories, I want you to feel relaxed and comfortable and assured of a personal service.

Your wedding day is unique to you and will be a reflection of your style & personality, your dedication to your partner, your family & your guests, therefore I always appreciate the trust shown if chosen to be involved in such a special & personal occasion. I will capture the various elements of your day from the excitement of the bridal preparations, the emotion of the creation of your marriage to the celebrations of the 1st dance in a mix of classic and candid images based on our pre-wedding conversations, whilst remembering it is your day to enjoy and have fun.

After your viewing session, when you have re-lived your day through the images taken I will collaborate further with you to produce your personal heirloom album in your chosen style, as well providing you with your images to keep and to share via modern methods.

Please feel free to contact me without obligation to discuss your wedding day plans and to arrange for a viewing consultation to see real wedding galleries and sample wedding albums.

I cannot recommend David highly enough. He was incredible to deal with. From the first planning meeting we could see his dedication. He made loads of important suggestions that made our photos personal and treasured. On the day David was amazing with my now wife. He put her at complete ease throughout the day and the results were truly amazing. Again, such a nice person and an incredible photographer. 10/10 - best decision we made on our wedding day bar none.

I could not recommend David higher, he was absolutely fantastic. I didn’t want to spend half my day getting photos taken so I wasn’t even pushed on a photographer although I did want pictures. When I spoke with David he completely made me feel at ease and gave us a very reasonable package that suited what we needed. He was absolutely fantastic on the day and got brilliant photos that we were so happy with. I literally couldn’t recommend him high enough. He was absolutely fantastic and very reasonably priced.

David was recommended to me by a friend, and I am so thankful for the recommendation. David was wonderful, so obliging and knowledgeable. I had to organise my wedding from Australia and David was so helpful. The quality of the photos was breath taking, with such attention to detail from every aspect of our day. He was so calm and easy going everyone was relaxed in his presence, we wanted candid photos of our day, and he captured the love and laughter in every picture. I cried when I saw them.

David is an incredible photographer! He captured beautiful images from our big day but most importantly he was so good to work with. He responded to emails promptly when planning the wedding and was amazing on the wedding day. He blended into the background but still captured all the photos we wanted. We got a beautiful mixture of formal photos and casual relaxed pictures of us and our guests!! We would highly recommend David for couples planning their wedding.

From the moment we booked David for our wedding in December, he was very professional. He was very responsive and he offered a very affordable price for our micro wedding. David is a very friendly, easy going and fantastic at what he does. My husband and I are quite camera shy but David made us feel at ease from the very start to the end of the day. He went above and beyond and we were blown away by the photos he had taken. We ended up loving every second of being photographed. I would highly recommend David to all your brides and grooms.

David was recommended to us by our venue as we had about 3 weeks to organize it due to covid restrictions and we couldnt have been happier that they did. He zoom'd called us just to get to know us and what we wanted from the day. He was really professional due to all the restrictions with social distancing.

David was great to work with from the moment we booked his service. He instantly knew we arent big fans of overly staged photos and he was able to get our couple photos done quickly on the day as he was aware we were dying to get back to the guests. He was very accommodating to my whole family who constantly were beside him trying to take photos at the same time as him!! he would patiently allow them to get their photos taken before he took his. Our photos turned out fab and we are delighted with how hands on David was in the lead up to the wedding, answering all emails in a very timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking for quality service.

We were very happy with the service provided by David and the quality of the photos taken. We arranged our wedding at relatively short notice and David was quick to respond to us. He took the time to meet us and understand our needs. Our wedding was split over 2 days (ceremony and reception) and even though he had other appointments the photography didn't feel rushed and he gave us as much time as we needed. Some of our guests even commented on how nice he was and how he did a good job without being too pushy or getting in the way.

My husband and I traveled from overseas to have our wedding blessing in Wicklow. David was very accommodating from the beginning, answering questions and providing us with information to assist us with our special day. We wanted to have our blessing somewhere unique but traveling from far away we had not seen the location ourselves. David set aside time to meet us at our destination spot prior to the wedding and assisted us in planning details for the day of. He also provided us with additional information to help us with our travels in Ireland. David is very genuine. He takes his work seriously but also cares about interacting and getting to know the guests. The photos we got back are absolutely stunning. Every time we look through the photos we get to relive the experience. We are so thankful we found David. He really cares about the individuals he works with and his photography is spectacular.

Our wedding was 9 Nov 2018 and it rained badly. We were a Dublin City wedding and had planned to have all out shots on Sandymount and in town however the rain changed plans. David accommodated us by setting up for our portraits indoors going to his car for equipment. He also came out in the rain and got the most amazing shots, which I did not want to do initially. I can not recommend him enough for going above and beyond and making our wedding photos

So many people commented on how professional David was on our wedding day. He got every photo we wanted but you wouldn’t even know he was there, he was not overbearing at all which is exactly what we wanted. Anyone that asked for photos David obliges also, all of which turned out lovely. As for value for money having priced a number of photographers he certainly ranks right up there. He is a very professional photographer who really knows what he’s doing and we couldn’t have been happier with how he went about his business and the results we got afterwards.

We came across david by pure chance . He had donated a wedding photography pacakage as a prize to a charity fund ( which says a lot about him) . As the holder of this prize you could say we took a chance on him ; but what a lucky chance it was for us for the following reasons : 1. His photography skills are excellent . Being an older wedding couple he captured our very best aspects in a natural way 2 He was a very personable man . It’s very important to get on well with the phographer- especially as it is a long day with a lot of photos to be taken . We liked him a lot and importantly our guests liked him . Many commented on how nice he was . 3. He was very accommodating to our needs . We have a large family and he catered for all the different aspects and family dynamics willingly. 4 He was very diligent paying a lot of attention to minor detail . David planned ahead of the day and made himself familiar with the names placed and important information . This meant that on the day he could easily remember key people and dynamics which freed us up to enjoy our day 5 . He was energetic and worked hard on the day . No request was too big or too small . He started early and didn’t leave until he felt his job was well done . He took lots of photos . 6 He was very inclusive of the guests in a very gentle way and the guests loved having their photos taken professionally . 7 David didn’t spare his skill on a package that was already gifted to charity which says a lot about his professional approach . 8 His after sales service is also very good and we recently called back to his studio for a girly occasion photograph David McCauley truly stands out in our minds as one of the best aspects of our big day .

We are delighted with the service that we have received form David. In the initial meeting he had suggestions and ideas that we would never have thought about. David suggested getting some pictures done in Farmleigh before the ceremony. This was an excellent idea for many reasons- fist we got great out door pictures in the daylight in mid winter and secondly we did not need to run off to get pictures after the ceremony which meant we could spend that extra time with our guests, and lastly Farmleigh was a beautiful location for our pictures. David was professional and easy going- we are absolutely delighted with our pictures - they have completely exceeded our expectations. Thank You!

We had said from the time we start looking for photographers that this was the one thing that had to be 100 % right. When we met David first we knew within a few minutes that he was our guy. David did what no other photographer had done, he took the time (2 hours if i am correct) to take us through what every aspect of our day would consist of photography wise. There was no argument this man knew what he was doing & when he showed us a few snaps from previous weddings he proved not only could he talk the talk but he could walk the walk too! On the day he was amazing! He is a King behind that camera and he made it all so so easy with great craic along the way. We had said from day one to David that we were a giddy couple up for a laugh and a bit of fun and that we wern't really into the whole formal thing and that we wanted our pictures to show this. Not a problem! Pics are just that! There is one picture of myself talking to my 2 year old son and i wasn't even aware David was snapping us. The picture is so precious and i will have that precious memory forever. Thank you so much David for everything, nothing was ever too much. If we didn't get anything else 100% on our day one thing is for sure we got the perfect photographer. We look forward to working with you in the future. Ali & Rory

I cannot fault David’s work from start to finish. He was very responsive to messages when first getting quotes and tailored a package to suit our needs. Before the wedding, he met with us at the venue to discuss photos we wanted taking and to show us potential places for photos. On the day, he was flexible and a calming influence on the whole day. As I got ready in the bridal suite, I barely noticed him. He was also very helpful at helping the lads sort their ties out! In the church, David was not at all intrusive and captured so many natural shots of both us and our guests. He was quick thinking and helped to deal with any minor hiccups on the day. Many guests commented on what a lovely man David was and he went above and beyond to get photos we had asked for - including hanging out of a window to get the all important group shot! As if this wasn’t enough, once our photos were ready, David made the journey to England to show them to us in person and delivered a beautiful USB and keepsake box, filled with thousands of photos - I still don’t know how he got so many! Thank you David for going above and beyond. You exceeded all our expectations for a wedding photographer. Thank you!

We married in August and we are so delighted we chose David as our photographer. From the moment we met David, he was so professional and helpful with every aspect of our wedding. We could see from his shots that he had a fantastic eye for capturing the right photographs and this was portrayed on the day. David took some amazing photos throughout our day, some of which I never saw him taking, creating beautiful, natural shots of us and our guests, which is exactly what I wanted. He was so relaxed on the day and, therefore, we all relaxed in his company and this is reflected in our stunning wedding photos. David stayed so late into the night and really went above and beyond to capture everything on the day. We couldn’t recommend David highly enough, thanks again David.

We had a surprise wedding on the day of our sons christening this summer and even though we only enlisted Davids help 6 weeks before, he was everything and more than we could ever have hoped. So natural, you wouldn't even know he's there most of the time!! The pictures he came back with absolutely blew us away. So talented. We would highly reccomend him without a seconds hesitation. Do yourself a favour..... hire David!!!

Well what can I say, David was an absolute pleasure to deal with it. From the first phone call to collecting our photos nothing was a problem. He listened to what we wanted and boy did he deliver. The photos were amazing, he took so many natural shots of everyone which was brilliant and had great ideas as well. He knew the venue very well which was great. We would highly recommend David to anyone.

We were married in June and booked David to be our photographer on a recommendation. He did not disappoint. I wanted the day to be very relaxed and in the early planning stages I wasn't even going to hire a photographer (I hate my photo being taken). David actually made the day more relaxing - He was discrete but I was so happy that he was there to capture all the little special moments. His eye for detail is great and he was brilliant at capturing the atmosphere of the day. He even managed to get some fab pictures of our two children and they never stay still long enough for their photos to be taken! I would recommend David in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a reliable, talented photographer. Ailish and Kevin. June 2017

We were married in May and are delighted that we chose David as our photographer. His organisation and attention to detail from the initial enquiry through to the delivery of the photos was second to none. I’m not one for having my photo taken but David put me at complete ease, he was so professional but portrayed a relaxed persona whilst keeping everything organised & punctual. He made sure to capture all of our special moments (secret smiles and laugh out loud ones alike) ensuring that he included all of our family and friends. His eye for ‘different’ shots is amazing and we are absolutely delighted with the results, he even went so far as standing out in the middle of traffic to capture results for us. When we returned from honeymoon we met David in the studio where he took us through all of the photos and gave them to us on a beautiful glass USB, packaged in a gorgeous little bag…… for me this was the icing on the cake. All of our wedding party commented on how great David was and we cannot recommend him highly enough, he really went above and beyond, thank you David.

David was suggested to us by a friend and immediately we felt we had made the right choice. We were looking for a professional who knew how to get all the photos to record our wedding without being the centre of attention. David did this perfectly, the quality of photos was very high with a good variety of guests, grounds, posed photos and natural photos. There were numerous photos produced that I do not remember seeing David at all for, which was the main characteristic I wanted from our photographer. David listened to us at every turn and ensured that we got all that we wanted. We were at ease throughout the day with him as his manner was exceptional. I can't recommend David enough for your photographs.

I don't even know where to start when it comes to thanking David. From the moment we met him at a wedding fair, to reviewing our pictures after the big day he has been amazing. He was professional throughout and all our guests commented at how he really got involved in our day, taking amazing pictures throughout it all, some of which I hadn't even noticed he was taking, creating some really beautiful natural pictures. He had an amazing way of helping us to relax and a fantastic eye for the right shots. He stayed so late in to the night and went above and beyond for us. I would and have recommended him to friends, his work is fab and he caught every moment of our fantastic day.

Choosing a wedding photographer was one of the hardest tasks when planning our wedding and I am delighted to say that we couldn't have been happier with our choice. David was fantastic! When we first met him, he offered such great guidance and had so many ideas based on what he knows works best on the day but was also always willing to listen to what we wanted and strived to give us what we had in our minds for the photos. On meeting David for a second time a few weeks before the wedding we were so impressed with the time he spent asking about family members, those who were part of the wedding party and those who we wanted to make sure we got specific photos with; David payed such close attention to this which meant his approach on the day was so personal. David was extremely professional but his personality brought a warmth and friendliness to the day. So many of our guests commented on how friendly he was.We are delighted that David was a part of our day and are thrilled with the photos, he captured each stage of the day so well. Myself, my husband and our family highly recommend him. Thanks again David!

We got married in June this year and David was our photographer. From start to finish our experience with David was outstanding, not only is he a gentleman but he is highly professional in very aspect of his work. From time keeping to his kindly mannerism we could not fault David. He made our day very relaxed and fun throughout all the photographs. When looking at all the photos he had take I was amazed that he caught every special moment of our day on camera and even though the Irish summer didn't hold out for us David still made the most of the little dry weather we got. We can not thank and recommend him enough. Thank you David
Response from David McAuley Photography
Thank You Ann-Marie, that is very much appreciated, it was a pleasure to part of your wedding day. Unfortunate about the weather but it's the people that make a wedding and it certainly didn't dampen their spirits. Looking forward to working on you album

I was very skeptical when I started looking at photographers for our wedding, so when a mutual friend introduced me to David, I couldn't wait to meet him and talk through our wedding plans. We had a Marvel Superhero themed wedding in February of this year and you could tell David was nearly as excited as we were. When we first met with him he completely put us both at ease, giving us tips and the rundown of how the day would go. As this was 2+ years to our wedding those were things we hadn't even began to think of or look at and with David's help it was all sorted very quickly and happily. Before we knew it our day was here and David arrived spot on time, he took about 5 mins to set up and that was him for the day, again he kept things very natural, half the time we didn't even know he was there. Everyone told us afterwards how he never stopped shooting and captured every moment. It was only two weeks ago when we did our first viewing that we realised he really did capture EVERY single moment and we're so glad he did. We also opted for the photo booth add-on and everyone loved the freedom of this and availed of a few cheeky snaps. We couldn't be happier we trusted David to capture our day and can't wait until the next event we can avail of his services again! Nickki

We arranged the wedding at very short notice due to an illness in the family. Despite this David was fantastic. He was discreet during the ceremony and the quality of the pictures was just fabulous. My sister (the bride) does not like to be photographed but David's manor put her at ease and made the whole thing a great experience for us all.

We booked David a year in advance of our wedding and from day one after meeting him in his studio he was excellent, we knew we were in good hands. On the day he made everyone feel at ease, he really listened to us and ensured he was giving us what we wanted. We had David booked up until our first dance and he ended up staying long after capturing all our guests dancing and enjoying themselves! We have had a viewing session of all our photos and are so impressed, choosing our pictures for the album was so hard. ( I would have all of them in if I could!) I would definitely recommend David to anyone looking to book a wedding photographer. I couldn't fault a thing!

I think the most difficult vendor to choose is the photographer. It took me months to look at every possible photographer. I came across David while looking for a videographer and while I was watching the wedding video I was really impressed with the photos that were being taken. The bride looked comfortable, the poses were natural yet unique and the background was beautiful. After doing a little bit of research I found the photographer David McAuley and I contacted him, he was quick to respond and answer any questions. Since I was planning my wedding from the US, a quick turn around time was important to me. His prices were very fair and his portfolio spoke quality. Most importantly, upon meeting him, he was friendly, accommodating, and professional. He arrived on time day of the wedding and went straight to work and he even stayed later when we asked him to. I liked that he was flexible to take any photos I requested at the time, yet he also used his creativity to produce great images! Not only did we love working with him, but our bridal party, and guests were thrilled with his work. I really enjoyed working with David McAuley and I highly recommend him as your next photographer.

We booked David at short notice on the recommendation of a friend and we were delighted with him. He went way above the call of duty to accommodate our meetings and was very flexible to my constantly evolving 'plan'! The photos that we got captured the relaxed mood of our day perfectly and he had such a lovely manner with the bridal party and all our guests. We would highly recommend him and are so grateful he captured the essence of our special day. What a pro.

After looking around for a wedding photographer, I came across David's website and decided to contact him regarding a consultation for our wedding photography. David responded to my request in a very timely manner and we made an appointment for him to come to my house to meet both myself and my future husband, Ray. He arrived on time and was well prepared for the consultation. He showed us samples of his wedding photography, which we were very impressed with. He also took all of our details and those of the wedding party so he would be familiar with who was who on the big day. He made extensive notes as to where we wanted our photo taken after the ceremony. He also advised on what services he had on offer, eg a photo booth, and what his wedding packages entailed. He spent a good while trying to figure exactly what myself and Ray wanted/expected from him so he would be able to tailor his services to our needs. On the day itself, he arrived early and was calmness itself :-) He was non invasive, but managed to take a lot of photos of myself, and everyone involved in the wedding preparations. After a good many shots were taken, he left so he could catch up with the groom at the Registry Office, so he could take more photos there and be prepared for when I arrived. We had our main photos taken at the botanic gardens. David was fantastic in picking out great spots for the photos to be taken, and he took both the formal photos as well as the casual ones, when people weren't aware he was aiming his camera at them. By doing this, he got a real feel of the day captured for us, which we absolutely loved! He was great at directing the poses we should take and who should stand where etc. He was so calm, he got everyone relaxed and it really showed in the photos that everyone was having a bit of fun :-) I'd HIGHLY recommend David as your wedding photographer. He was professional, punctual, calm, friendly, well organised and best of all, the photographs turned out amazing!

What can i say. From the very beginning David was a true gentleman and professional. From our first meeting David knew exactly what we were looking for. He understood that we did not want nor need many staged photos and captured the very essence of who we are as a family, couple. David spent the day with us until late at night capturing the fun and magic behind our day and made our guest enjoy the experience. he captured so many special memories, ones that both myself and Barry will cherish forever. Thank you David for being a huge part of our wedding and would highly recommend you to our friends and family

Your photography really captured all the fun and enjoyment on the day, as well as those special quieter moments, and things we didn't even see on the day... and all in way that was natural and unobtrusive and made everyone relaxed and at ease.

Liam and I would like to thank you again for such a brilliant job.We have been absolutely delighted with his exceptional personal and professional approach from the very first time we met at a wedding fair. Unlike all the other photographers we had met he was interested in what we wanted and had to say rather than trying to sell an album to us. He certainly added to the success of our wedding day. His personal and down to earth attitude is exactly what you need on your wedding day. He was very easy to deal with and was also great value.We would both could not highly recommend him enough.

Mike and I want to thank David for all the hard work he put in helping us organise our big day. After a potential disastrous discovery on our wedding morning he even supplied my dad with cufflinks! He constantly surprised us with his jokes on the day whilst snapping away which led to great natural photos as I am not a big fan of posing and wanted him to capture us during the natural flow of things. David went above and beyond for us, often going out of his way to meet me and was always only a phonecall away offering tips.Very professional to work with but great humour also which was needed when my heels started killing me and I was getting grouchy! He was at the hotel til late even though he didnt need to be. Absolutely delighted especially with our album after me changing my mind so many times about which photos to pick, David was so patient and the extra family photos I got for great value! Highly recommended!! Thanks again David :)

From the moment we enquired with David, we knew we had made the right decision for our wedding photographer. Any questions we had, David answered promptly and in detail. We had a few photo ideas that we wanted to try on our wedding day and David managed to capture everything we asked for, he was very open to ideas but also lead the way when we were unsure. David was extremely professional and fitted in so well, I barely knew he was there in the morning getting ready, or at the church - yet such beautiful moments were captured!! He was running around all day & night getting the perfect shots and worked so hard - even our wedding guests commented on how nice & hardworking he was. We feel like David captured us and our wedding day perfectly, we laughed all day and had so much fun and that has really come through in our photos. David, we cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for us - from start to finish you have been amazing and a pleasure to deal with, we will happily recommend you to anyone!!

Looking back on the photos brought the day back to life and it was wonderful to remember it in such a beautiful way. Not only did you capture the big, special moments, you also captured the intimate and personal details, that would have been long forgotten in the hustle and bustle of the day. I've had some many compliments on the album, everyone saying it's the nicest they've ever seen. We are also delighted with the personalised 'Thank You' cards that you designed for us so we can give each of our guests a momento of the day too. I will be recommending you to all future brides to be!
