My goal is to tell the story of your day through amazing photos in the most natural way possible, and for you to really enjoy your special day.

I shoot with a relaxed style and will help you to have fun and enjoy your wedding day.

Before your day, I will work closely with you in advance of your wedding, where we can discuss what you like, to ensure we get many great photos that you will cherish forever.

Although my style is relaxed, I work very hard throughout your day, constantly watching for those magic moments that occur naturally.

Posing is kept to a minimum, but for some photos, I am happy to give direction where necessary.

With all packages, you will get a USB  in a beautiful presentation box with all the photos from your day, in full resolution and un-watermarked.

When it comes to your wedding album, you have a choice of albums to choose from, and you can also choose what photos you wish to have in it, giving you full control, so that I can design an album that is bespoke and unique to you and your wedding day.

Ian Hennessy Photography is based in West Dublin, but regularly shoots weddings all over Ireland.

For more information, photos and real client reviews, please visit my website.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Ian was our wedding photographer in December 2022. From the first contact we knew that we were in good hands. Ian was always there to answer any questions or queries that we had, and was very reassuring in all communications. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer on the day - as two people who don't love photoshoots, Ian (& Tyler Fallon videographer) kept us both so relaxed and made the 'taking photos' part of the day fun. Taking the bride and groom photos ended up being one of our favourite parts of the day. Ian kept us laughing and feeling relaxed and comfortable. His documentary style meant he was capturing the day as it unfolded, which is what we wanted. On top of him being amazing to work with on the wedding day, we received the most amazing photos a few days later. He captured all the little moments that, as the bride and groom, we were inevitably going to miss. I knew we wouldn't be disappointed with Ian but we were absolutely blown away by how much we loved our photos. They will be treasured forever. I would 100pc recommend Ian to anyone looking for an easygoing, kind, professional, and skilled photographer for their wedding day. Thanks again Ian!!!

Ian was absolutely great to work with! Calm and professional sum him up perfectly. In the lead up to the wedding he guided us through the whole day, we felt very at ease after the chat. He was great with the kids at the wedding. He was able to capture some really lovely moments for us, especially in the morning preparations. The turnaround of the pics was super fast. He also worked with a great videographer called Andy, a lovely fella and a fantastic videographer. The two of them worked seamlessly together! Highly recommend!

Ian had previously been the photographer at my sisters wedding a few years before mine and had such a great experience with him that once my partner and I began wedding planning we knew we wanted to book Ian immediately. We're so delighted he was available for our date and couldn't have been happier with our experience! Ian is a real professional who listened to what we would like and always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We even didn't notice him taking photos at times so got some beautiful candid photos. He was unbelievably quick in sending us our pictures which included the prettiest wooden USB! Just want to say thanks again to Ian for taking part of our day and giving us the photos to remember it forever, we absolutely love every single one!

I would highly recommend Ian! He understood straight away what we wanted - we wanted the day captured but also didn’t want to spend too long away from our guests. Ian and our Videographer Tyler Fallon worked great together - they captured so many beautiful shots of the whole day! They were a great team to have on the day - both so professional and friendly and put us all at ease. The photos were also turned around exceptionally fast! I am looking forward to meeting Ian again at my sisters wedding later this year! Thanks again, Niamh & Luke

It’s hard to put into words how grateful we are that Ian photographed our big day! His manor was so calm yet professional and fun yet direct, the perfect combinations. He was so patient with our little girl & captured her personality to a tee! The photos feel so happy and full of laughter echoing the atmosphere of the day, and he so naturally caught all of our special stolen moments together as new husband & wife. From start to finish dealing with Ian was a pleasure, his detail to everything was perfect, even down to the presentation of our USB key. We can’t recommend him enough, thank you so much, love Ruth & Joe

When we got engaged two years ago we immediately booked Ian for our wedding photography as we had heard so much about his fantastic work and had seen some of his beautiful photography work. Ian was the photographer for our wedding on the 23rd October and without a doubt he is fantastic at his job. From the moment we met him he made us both feel so relaxed and was so friendly and throughout the wedding planning and the day itself, he gave us great advice. You would hardly notice he was there capturing all those special moments of the big day. He had some fantastic ideas for photos and despite it raining on our big day, Ian ensured that he captured every single smile throughout our big day. When we got our photos back it brought a tear to our eye as they are just so beautiful and so well captured, ones that we will treasure forever. We would highly recommend Ian Hennessy photography for the friendly, professional, supportive and high quality service. Thank you Ian for capturing our wedding day.

Ian was amazing, we hardly knew he was there. Snapping away getting absolutely amazing photographs which were ready way quicker than we thought. Ian has an eye and a flair that really shows in the finished product. I would absolutely recommend Ian.

Ian photographed our wedding and he did an outstanding job. We wanted a mix of candid and staged shots, and Ian was more than happy to oblige. He has a very chilled out demeanour, and he put us at ease in the run up to the wedding and on the say itself. He turned around the photos and video incredibly quickly and to an exceptional standard. He was also very accommodating with us, especially considering all the changes that were forced on us through Covid restrictions. Would highly recommend Ian for wedding photography/videography and for any other event

We can only reiterate what others have said about Ian in previous reviews. We couldn't recommend anyone highly enough as we do Ian. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, Ian is top class and brings so much professionalism to your big day. Ian's approach regarding his progression from initial consultation to agreeing the requirements and timetable leaves you completely relaxed on your big day even when emotions and nerves are running high. Ian has such a relaxed approached while capturing your big day you won't even realise he is there. His friendly personality makes it feel like he is a long time friend who is just calling for a cuppa while casually snapping a few pictures during the morning and build up to the ceremony. Ian's time management is second to none and ensures all photographs are taken in a relaxed manor even with a later ceremony and when nature is fighting against him with the shortened winter evenings. Ian prides himself with his photographs and videography and will do everything possible to ensure your happily ever after is captured to the highest standard. No matter what package you choose you can guarantee the same high quality finished product that will leave you smiling with tear wrenching wedding standard and candid images.

We are absolutely delighted that we chose Ian Hennessy Photography for our Wedding Day! It was nice and relaxed from our first chat with Ian and from that, he knew exactly the type of Photos that we wanted for our Wedding. He also done some Videography for the Wedding too which was fantastic. We did the main Family Photos in the Church and then we went to a Forest Park for our own Photos. Very relaxed all day! Amazing Photos that we will have forever. For our ‘Couple Photos’ and the Guests at the Wedding Reception, we have a lot of natural photos which is what we both love and wanted. People in the moment and it captured the atmosphere of our day perfectly. Thank you Ian.

Choosing a photographer can be tricky but when we came across Ian's photos we were delighted he had our date available. Ian was a pleasure to work with leading up to our big day. His calm and quite disposition put me at ease and I knew he would be unobtrusive. We are really looking forward to seeing our pictures. Feedback from our family and guests were really positive, a lovely genuine man with a passion for photography. Thank you so much for making our day so special.

Ian was always without a doubt going to be our wedding photographer. We didn’t even look at anyone else’s week, we were that sure. Ian was the perfect gentleman for the entire day. From the moment he stepped into my parents house until he left the Hodson Bay Hotel that night, he was nothing short of amazing. From giving us little tips to helping with the cufflinks and button holes, he really was a massive part of our day and helped wherever he could. I doubt you get that with many photographers. The idea of having someone with a camera in my face all day was very daunting, but Ian had my husband and I feeling very relaxed and comfortable. Ian’s approach to photography is so relaxed and natural, which is exactly what we wanted. We didn’t want our wedding photos looking really staged and edited. Because Ian was going on holidays shortly after our wedding, he got straight to getting our photos ready. I still couldn’t believe how quickly he sent them to us. Hundreds of photos. He really captured to love and happiness in the day and and we literally couldn’t be happier with them. The more I look at them, the more I enjoy them ???? I really love having such beautiful photos that hold such precious memories ?? Ian, we cannot thank you enough for the effort you put into our wedding photos. And please God we’ll have loads of excuses to use your services in the future

First time I met him was on my wedding morning. He is a kind, polite man and got to work straight away, he had us feeling relaxed and I didn’t feel self conscious at all! We got our highlight pictures back so fast after the wedding and they blew me away! They were so flattering and they told the story of day so so well. I highly recommend Ian. I wouldn’t change a thing.

I would highly recommend Ian as a wedding photographer. He was prompt in all of his communication with us, and was a pleasure to have around on our wedding day. He was relaxed and pleasant, but yet remained focused on the job, getting great photos. Our photographs were ready and waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon, and we are delighted with them. Thanks a mil Ian!

Ian was the first suppliers we booked,after the venue and celebrant. We had seen photos he took from other weddings and they looked great. He's a lovely man and very easy to deal with. His costs were great value and reasonable , but that did not take from his quality of work at all. We were delighted with our photos and have so many that we will treasure forever. After the madness of the wedding is over, all you have is the photos to looks back on and you will get fabulous photos from Ian. No request was too big or small. We would definitely recommend him to other couples thinking of booking him

I would highly recommend Ian. From the first moment we spoke I had a gut feeling that he was the right photographer for us - professional but not over-bearing! On the day itself, he was excellent. Getting ready that morning we hardly noticed he was there yet he managed to take some really special photos. The photos he took throughout the day were beautiful and natural. We are so delighted with how they turned out. Also excellent value for money! Thanks so much Ian.

He had our highlights video to us the day after the wedding and we returned from our honeymoon to a beautifully presented USB with all our photos on it. Thank you so much Ian for being such a pivotal part of our special day. Kate & Noel Bradley

Ian was our wedding photographer in Oct '13, I can't believe it's two years ago already! He took care of everything, from photos for the full wedding day right through to til late in the evening and even designing the wedding album. He was extremely professional throughout and made it a very enjoyable experience for us both, making sure to get all the little quirky shots we wanted along with the more important posed ones of family and friends. The finished photos and album are amazing and we couldn't be happier with his work. To top it all off, Ian also gave us the full resolution photos on disc (unlike most photographers) and was very keenly priced. We would definitely recommend him to anyone! Mr & Mrs Concannon
