Hi there, I'm Dena,


I am focused on taking wedding photography that is unobtrusive, fun, candid and natural.

A part of my fascination with photography is the power a photograph has to immediately transport you back to that fleeting moment in time it has captured.

My goal is to be attentive whenever you need me but in the background when you don’t. I want you to feel as if I have looked after you 100% but that you hardly ever saw me on your wedding day whilst providing you with incredible memories to cherish of the whole day; I have literally been called ‘The Ninja Photographer’ :-) 

I enjoy capturing moments with the two of you alone. Catching the love and emotion between you is my goal. As much as a picture can be beautifully shot, if the emotion isn't there, it doesn't work for me. Short and relaxed portrait sessions are what I'm all about.

Feel free to contact me for a zoom chat to get to know me a little better.

• After days of research on the internet and hours wasted back on forth with a handful of photographers, I was coming close to giving up until I stumbled across Dena! Within the first 2 minutes of our phone conversation, I knew she was the one! As I live in the UK, I knew little about the ins and outs of Dublin and Dena went above and beyond to help me make my secret proposal, perfect! She not only guided me but gave me a full virtual walkthrough of how the location looks and how I should execute my proposal! Even to the point of helping me figure out which knee I should get on as she secretly captures the moment from a vantage point! ? • As my experience with Dena was exceptional for the proposal, I knew I’d want her to capture the next 2 big milestones of my relationship, Nikkah (Signing of wedding documents) and Mehndi (Afterparty). As this was a traditional Pakistani Wedding, Dena asked all the right questions ahead of the events and intuitively made all the right calls on the days. She was respectful, efficient and managed to capture all of the key moments! • Dena is easygoing, professional and meticulous in her research ahead of the events. She listens carefully and provides flexible guidance to her clients. Her turnaround time for the photographs is short but up to the high professional standard you’d expect. I cannot emphasise any more how pleased we are with the photographs from not one but three events! I would highly recommend working with Dena if you would like someone who can capture the essence of an event, the emotions in the air and the key moments that make an event special. Thank you Dena for not only being so professional but also now becoming a wonderful friend! Sultan & Marium.

We loved having Dena help us capture memories on our wedding day. We wanted someone who would be able to capture candid moments, real interactions and real feelings...Which she did! She has a great eye for anticipating a nice, natural shot and positioning herself in advance to capture it. Dena is a lovely person to deal with, warm and professional. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.

Where do I start? Having Dena be our photographer on the day was an absolute pleasure. From our initial meeting over coffee to our engagement shoot right through to our wedding day the experience was tremendous. Dena is an absolute perfectionist and her work and her portfolio speaks for itself. Ahead of our wedding, Dena travelled to our location to assess where best for lighting and shots for all weather occasions, so time was not wasted on day looking for good spots. On the day of the wedding, Dena was invisible and looking back over the photos I am in awe at some of the moments that were captured, because I simply do not remember the camera being there. Dena almost became an extra guest at the wedding, as she blended in with guests mixed and mingled and captured those candid moments of laughter and conversation that are often missed. Would highly recommend Dena as a photographer for any big day!

I cannot recommend Dena enough as a wedding photographer to future couples. Her style was exactly what we were looking for which was a more documentary approach mixed with some traditional shots. Dena was able to capture the most important and emotional moments without we even realising she was there. She made us feel super relaxed and put us all at ease which was great on such an important day. After the photos with family and friends in the registry office, we went on a photo shoot in the streets of Dublin and WOW the photographs literally blew me away! They are all so natural and beautiful. Dena has truly exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much Dena for such great memories!!

An exceptional day. Dena Shearer Photography is without a shadow of a doubt the easiest, most reliable and stress free photographic service that a couple can hire for retaining their memorable day in a time capsule forever. An unforgettable day of excellent photo-shoot in the heart of Dublin city that really topped up the most joyful moments of our life. Dena has given us more than she said she would, from start to finish. Despite the pandemic restrictions, we made it. Dena, we can never thank you enough. You ticked all the boxes including price competitiveness and efficiency. While we wish Dena the best of luck we would highly recommend her top-class photographic services. Thank you for being such a brilliant artist. We've selected just a very few of the many photos to display here. A few of our favourite. Happy days, John & Nina

Dena is an incredibly talented photographer. From the first time, we met Dena while looking for a wedding photographer we knew she was the photographer for us. Having seen her work online we both loved her style of photography. She was such a professional and is just such a lovely person. The day of our wedding it rained heavily all day until 6 pm but we were both on such a high we didn’t let it get us down and still opted to have our photos taken outside and we were so glad we did!! We were on our honeymoon when the photographs came through from Dena, we were absolutely delighted with them. We spent hours and hours looking at them and loved each photograph more than the last. Dena did a fantastic job of capturing the mood of the day and all the little things you can miss on the day as the bride and groom. Dena was such a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her.

I could not recommend Dena as a wedding photographer more. We found her profile online and although we had no prior knowledge of her work we could not have been happier with how things worked out! Dena was amazing to deal with from start to finish and of all the wedding vendors we engaged with we were most impressed by the professional, yet personal, service Dena provided. Dena made sure we were all on the same page regarding the style and types of photographs we wanted and helped us pull together a schedule for the day to ensure everything ran seamlessly and no shot was missed. Dena's non-intrusive, documentary-style really suited what we were after. Guests commented that they barely saw Dena on the day and yet it feels like not a moment was missed in the fabulous images she captured. Dena was incredibly efficient and helpful post-wedding and we are delighted with our final pictures and album. We have already recommended her to family and friends!
