Our experience with John recently was nothing short of amazing. His patience, professionalism, friendliness and diligence was top class. He kept us smiling all day from start to finish whilst getting all the photo's done. He also made it so easy and comfortable for someone who doesn't particularly like the camera ???? going above and beyond what was expected; fixing dresses, liaising with the wedding team even dropping bits to ceremony room. We really appreciate all John's hard work and his contribution to what was a very special day for us both. We loved every minute of it and would highly recommend John to all. It will be one of the easiest choices in supplier you will make! Thanks again John ! Fiona and Trevor

We hired John for our wedding on Sunday August 28th, 2022 in Kilkenny and had an engagement shoot with him a few months prior. We really couldn't recommend John enough. When we were looking for a wedding photographer, we were looking 2 or 3 things. 1. We wanted a photographer that was good. John is better than good. He's exceptional at what he does. We're delighted with the photos. He's a multi-award winning photographer with a world of experience and it shows in his photos. 2. We wanted a decent turn-around time from the day of the wedding to the day we got our photos. Prior to the wedding, Kate & I hoped to have them before Christmas (within 4 months of the wedding date). We got them within 2 weeks of the wedding. At the time of our wedding, John was in the middle of a crazy run of weddings (maybe 20 in 5 or 6 weeks) so to get the photos back so quickly was unexpected and very appreciated. 3. We wanted a photographer who put us at ease. John did that. He brought a bit of fun, and a bit of craic to our engagement shoot, and everybody was at ease on the wedding day for photos, too. John's very professional but also fun to work with. We highly recommend him as a wedding photographer.

Colm & Kate, Thanks a mil, really appreciate that, I am thrilled that you were delighted with the service and photos. It's always a pleasure to be trusted for such an important role in couples weddings. John

John is outstanding at what he does! We had the most amazing day with him and had such a laugh. He was so professional, patient and kept us relaxed the whole day. There wasn't one single moment that he didn't capture, he caught moments we can treasure forever. And what can I say about our album, I have no words! It was just perfect in every way. If you're looking for a top quality photographer, then John is your man.

I really can't recommend John enough! I've seen his work over the years & always knew he would be my photographer for my wedding when the day finally came. I've only gotten a few teasers of my pics & we are already blown away! Such a talented man but also one of the nicest & funniest you'll meet. Due to covid I had only met John once to discuss our wedding so was a bit nervous for the morning of. I needn't have worried - he slotted right in with us & everything felt so easy. We soon realised we were all as mad as eachother so plenty of laughs were had. I was sad to see him leave at the end of the night as we got a great buzz off him! He goes above & beyond for you on the day. He ran around and helped out more than my bridal party. He's an absolute gent. You won't regret putting your faith in him I swear he is amazing... the awards speak for themselves! Thanks again John you added so much laughter to our day it wouldn't have been the same without you x

We met John at the wedding fair at Langton House Hotel, he was one of a few photographers at the fair. His work immediately drew us to him,it spoke for itself. We booked him there and then and maintained contact while planning the wedding, explaining the finer details we desired. John looked after us from start to finish and captured our day making sure we have memories to look back on forever. He was easygoing, relaxed and had our wedding proofs within 2 weeks. John also provided the green screen photography for us and presented us with beautiful photos of our guests the night of the wedding. Wedding photography is a major part of your wedding day to capture special times, this we received from John.

I honestly can not recommend John enough. His attention to detail is absolutely outstanding. He captured so many precious moments of our wedding day , moments we didn’t even realize had happened until we saw our photos. On the day John made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Everyone has commented on how amazing our photos are and we couldn’t agree more.

John was great. He made me feel at ease throughout the process. I'm not a confidant person when it comes to photos and hate cheesy photos so he had alot of other ideas and worked great. Great with the kids too. Very patient and took photos of whoever we wanted in them.

John is a fantastic photographer, very professional and his attention to detail is second to none. John goes above and beyond for a couple on their big day no photo is a problem and he is very creative when designing an album. John was so lovely to work with and made everyone feel so at ease. On our wedding day john brought so much fun and humour to our photos, he was an absolute joy to work with and I would not hesitate in recommending him to any couple that are looking for a photographer. John also offers a fantastic photo booth service which again brought great fun and banter to our wedding.We had our photos edited and ready for us on return from our honeymoon. Thanks again john for all your hard work and dedication in capturing all the special moments of our big day. It is always a pleasure to meet you at other weddings, it is clear to see why you are an award winning photographer.

John is very professional. His duty of care towards his clients is top notch. I lost both of my parents prior to my wedding and john done everything in his power to ensure my albums were missing no important family moments. I also have a little girl and he done everything in his power to include her. He treated the whole family and extended family with equal importance capturing all the right moments. I had my album before my honeymoon was over. I pull my album out every once and awhile to relive the day. Thanks john.

John was our photographer for our wedding, from our first conversation and meeting right up to our wedding day, John was fantastic, nothing was a problem to him. He is the most professional and genuine man you will ever meet. His photographs were beautiful and for someone like me who hates the camera each photo was more beautiful than the last one. He captured our special day beautifully and left us with fantastic photos which we will always treasure. I would highly recommend John to any future bride and groom, John makes you feel at ease from the start of the day right through to the very last photo. Thank you John for our beautiful memories.
