David McNeill, LIPPVA, EP

‘Wedding Photography’ is my speciality. I see every wedding day as an opportunity to create a fabulous set of images that will be creative and bespoke to each couple, reflecting their unique personalities.

I have photographed hundreds of weddings over the years and have always received excellent reviews from my couples. As a wedding photographer my aim is to capture images with emotion and not too posed, images that are spontaneous and creative, that reflect the personalities of my couples. Weddings are all about people and as a professional wedding photographer it's very important that I mix unobtrusively with family and guests and to keep the mood light and fun - that way I  get stunning images of the couple, their families and friends. 

When choosing your wedding photographer you want that person to be vastly experienced, a photographer that is friendly and will work with you, blend into your wedding effortlessly and bring you through your day completely 'stress free'. Having years of wedding photography experience you can be certain that you will get fabulous images of your wedding that you will cherish for years to come.


Very soon after your wedding day your full set of images will be available to view in your secure online gallery. Galleries are a fantastic way to see how good your wedding images are, but its only when you receive your hand craftedwedding album that you will fully appreciate the quality of your wedding day photographs.

My exclusive range of Italian Wedding Albums produced in Rimini by Album Epoca are beautiful and very unique. Hand crafted by Italian artisans from start to finish, you are assured of the highest quality presentation of your wedding photographs with a range of contemporary cover options that you will just adore

Most definitely 10/10. Both myself and my husband could not recommend David enough. From the very first time we met to discuss the wedding right through until we picked up our amazing album we honestly could not have asked for more. David is so professional, so easy to talk and work with, has a great eye for detail, and will make the whole process seamless. He captured the most special moments of our big day perfectly, and kept the whole day on track!! The pictures are more than we ever could have imagined.

Thanks so much Nicole & Craig for this lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your special day and you, your bridal party, friends and family were all just fabulous. I totally enjoyed your wedding and we did get some truly fabulous images. The wedding album looked amazing and really gave a real sense of the fun you had on the day.

David is a true gentleman, from day one I knew he was the photographer for me his attention to detail is outstanding and his patience is next to none! He gives great advice and the add on of him giving a framed photo of wedding to bride and groom mother instead of flowers was a super idea which both our mothers will cherish forever! Relax smile and enjoy your safe with David.
Response from David McNeill Photography

David provided an excellent professional service. He made us feel at ease from the very beginning . The pre wedding shoot as part of our package was a great way to feel relaxed and get to know the style of photos and poses we would like on our wedding day. The result was an amazing album capturing the most poignant parts of the day. I would highly recommend David to any couple.
Response from David McNeill Photography
Many thanks Francesca and well done to you both for braving the weather to get outdoor photos - it was a fabulous day.

From our initial meeting with David at the wedding fair to our final meeting with him to collect our wedding album, David was nothing but professional, helpful and very easy going. David took on board all of our ideas and ensured we got all the pictures we wanted on the day, as-well as giving us lots of good advice on all aspects of our day. Davids extreme attention to detail and his willingness to go above and beyond was fantastic.
Response from David McNeill Photography
Thats so nice Liz & Gavin and thanks for much for the review. Keep well and I look forward to catching up again with you in the not so distant future.

He listened to what we wanted, he stayed in the background so you didnt know he was there. He made both of us and our guests feel relaxed. Photos came back very quickly and it was a matter of weeks after we chose them that the album was ready. Would highly recommend him. Quality photos and a lovely person.
Response from David McNeill Photography
Thank you so much Samantha & Alan. A great wedding day and you were both so easy to work with that it made the days photography so much easier and enjoyable.

We met David McNeill at a wedding fair and instantly on talking to him knew he was the right photographer for us. He was very funny and friendly and this really helped on the day to keep everyone calm and less nervous. My husband HATES photos and David understood this and worked so well with putting him at ease and I'm still shocked as to how he managed to get my husband to cooperate and even do the lovey dovey shots ???????? The quality of his photos are fantastic and he has great creative ideas. His albums are very unique and unlike any others I've seen. You will have a laugh with David on the day and still have the most beautiful photos too.

David is a fantastic person, businessman and most of all photographer. From the day we met him he was pleasant, giving advice, listening to our needs and never once said no. On the day of the wedding he was very organised, very friendly and allowed us to enjoy all those cheesy smiles! As for the finished product..... WOW!! we weren't waiting long to see our photos and once we had picked them we had our album within a handful of weeks. We are soooooo glad David was our photographer!

I cannot recommend David mc Neil enough. He was brilliant from start to finish. The photos even from the trial photo shoot that was just a quick few photos were amazing and I was so happy and will cherish them forever. The wedding photos were amazing he got all the photos we asked to try get. When I was out getting my hair done he got fablous photos of my dress and the flower girls and page boys outfits and all my accessories and flowers. Which is so nice to have and he really put all his time to good use. It was raining out so couldn't go outside for photos but he was able to use his initiative and find places in the hotel to take loads of lovely photos. He wasn't just a fabulous Photogpher he also helped out with different things on the day which he was only happy to help with. Even being able to calm me down before leaving for the church. He got on with all the bridal party and everyone felt happy and comfortable getting photos. After the wedding I received this lovely heart shaped USB with my wedding photos looking at them on the screen I cried with happiness on how he captured my day. Also the choice of albums we had to choose from were all so nice to all the wedding fairs I had been to (which was a lot) I'd never seen anything compare. We picked a fablous silver album which was wrapped in a silk bag and a box with a plaque with are names and date in it which is just a lovely touch. When it arrived I was just so happy couldn't be leave how nice it looked and couldn't wait to show everyone. We were also able to get mini ones made for both are parents for them to keep and show friends which they were over the moon with.

Absolutely love my wedding album. David captured some amazing natural shots aswel as posed. Very easy to work with. We had a pre wedding shoot to get us comfortable with the camera which was very helpful and made us more relaxed on the big day. David's work is excellent

We can't recommend David enough! He allowed us to include our mental dog Hugo into our engagement shoot - one of the shots ended up being our wedding invitation we loved it so much. On the day of the wedding he put everyone at ease - the personal touch allowed him to capture a number of personal moments that would have been missed otherwise. It was fab looking through all the shots as it gave us a whole new perspective on the day. He was great with our families and all the kids - and really did go over and beyond the call of duty running round us twenty times with a sparkler to capture a shot I'd been keen to try! Book David for your wedding without any reservations - you will not regret it!
Response from David McNeill Photography
I always feel privileged when couples choose me to take their wedding photographs. When I met Jessie & Damien and after a fairly lengthy chat I knew we could work well together and produce great images on their special day. Jessie & Damien, their families and friends were so welcoming and friendly on the wedding day that it made my job that much easier. We got on brilliantly and captured some wonderful photographs. It's lovely to receive such a great review, so thanks Jessie & Damien. You guys are great!

David took our engagement photos, which gave us the opportunity to get to know him. He was very friendly, professional and ensured we stayed at ease. We were delighted with the photographs we got of the day. He ensured we had an excellent album and included formal and casual photographs. He travelled to Clare for our wedding, for which we remain grateful. We diverted from the main guests on the way to the reception for some 'sneaky' photographs, by pre-arrangement. David was the essence of secrecy. He got some great 'fun' photos of the two of us. After the wedding, David's professionalism didn't falter. He was efficient with choosing the photos, making the album and framing any pictures we wanted framed. We would recommend David to anyone.
