We booked Janet to do our Wedding photos in the Morrison Hotel in Dublin City centre a few weeks back and we are so glad we did. She was amazing to deal with from enquiry stage right up to receiving our stunning photos on a beautifully presented USB. Janet was so warm and friendly, her attention to detail is amazing from capturing myself and my bridal party getting ready in my mam and dads house to our stroll around town as man and wife. If you are considering booking Janet please don't hesitate, choosing her was one of the best decisions we made for our big day.

We had Janet for our wedding a few weeks back and from the first phone call to getting the final pictures off her, she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Janet showed the utmost professionalism throughout the two days and even managed to navigate a particularly difficult toddler. Would very highly recommend Janet, you will not find a better photographer for your big day

Janet was lovely to deal with from the 1st email we sent to phone calls we knew straight away Janet was for us. Janet was brilliant to have around the morning of the wedding, we had so much fun. We loved receiving a few pictures a couple of days after the wedding and we cant wait to see the rest. Would highly recommend Janet.

Jan is so lovely, she made us feel so at ease throughout the day, she knew what pictures we wanted prior to the day and got them all. In the church you would have hardly known she was there and got great shots, I can not recommend her enough and her colleague Barry. We are so glad we choose the album with Jan, as the quality of the prints are flawless.

Janet was extremely professional from the very first time we met her. She is amazing to work with and definitely made us feel at ease on the day. She captured everything we wanted and more and we could not thank her enough. Following on from the wedding, when picking pictures for the our album, she already had a layout already created which was breath-taking. We would 100% recommend her.

Janet is lovely to work with. She really listens to you and she captured some beautiful moments during our day. She has a real fun side and is not fazed by bad weather - she was happy to stand out in the rain to get the perfect shot!

Janet was an absolute pleasure to deal with from enquiry stage right up to collecting our albums and prints. She was great for putting us at ease but yet well able to ensure everything we wanted was done. Although the weather was awful and the castle was closed after our ceremony for photos this actually meant Janet got incredibly unique pictures of us in kilkenny city in the rain. Her editing was incredible really making the rain and colours of the sky pop. Janet was so warm and friendly I enjoyed going to view our edited photos with her and then the prints and albums which are all fabulous, her attention to detail is amazing with beautifully presented USB. If you are considering booking Janet don't hesitate as you won't regret it :-) Hope to use Janet to capture more of our family on the future.

I can not recommend Janet enough from our very first meeting to the collection of our stunning wedding album. Janet's ideas and suggestions are wonderful she thinks of quirky shots the use of props etc. She makes sure to ask you for a listing of the people you want photos with apart from the regular family, bridal party, and bride / groom shots. She will always scout out her venues, making sure each shot is captured perfectly. Janet has a great bubbly personality she made everyone feel at ease especially on the wedding morning, when nerves tend to kick in.She is the ultimate people person which is exactly what you need she works side by side with videographers wedding planners without stepping on anyone else's toes. . As a bride who absolutely hates photographs, not once did I feel like I was over posing. Janet will make small suggestions on how to stand or relax your posture etc. She captures fabulous moments when you don't even know your being photographed. It was so relaxing having a female photographer in the room especially when stepping into the dress in just underwear! She will go above and beyond, she washed my mothers hair the morning of our wedding, that's definitely wasn't on Janet's "To Do" list that morning. The quality of Janet's work is second to none we could not get our album down to sixty pages so kept it at seventy pages. oh boy were we delighted with the results. We didn't even have to make amendments on the editing she did such a great job its like a story book of how our day played out .The album and USB sticks and framed print we ordered were presented was to the highest standards. After the wedding is over all the hard work completed you have your new spouse, and of course memories of a lifetime, make sure those memories are captured by a great photographer. Its really something to look forward to after your big day, I know I was so excited getting the call from Janet telling me my album was ready for collection. I hope this review helps any potential Brides and Grooms thinking of hiring Janet. BOOK HER NOW, it will be the easiest wedding planning decision you make.

Janet was amazing to deal with from start to finish. As part of our wedding package we had an engagement shoot. Janet came to meet us at Powerscourt Waterfall and took some fantastic photographs of us. She sent the best ones on to us and we choose our favorite, which she turned into a signing board for our guests to sign at the wedding. On the day itself Janet was extremely professional and great at organizing our guests to get some incredible shots. Janet is extremely friendly and easy going, she made us feel at ease with her straight away, which is great if your feeling a bit camera shy!Most importantly the photographs came out beautifully and we are so grateful to her for capturing our day. I highly recommend Janet to anyone who is planning their wedding. She is highly flexible, extremely friendly and most importantly takes wonderful pictures!Thank you Janet for your massive role in capturing our day :)

Janet was fantastic through the whole process. Incredibly easy to deal with during booking and on the day she could not have been more helpful. She knew all the ins and outs and, having not been to many weddings myself, I was delighted to have someone there who could advise us on all things and not just the photos. Our photographs turned out fantastic. I could not recommend Janet more highly. Fantastic service and great value in my opinion.

Janet was great from the day we met her to the morning of the wedding, to the moment we got our wedding album, very professional and relaxing at the same time, she put our minds at ease that we were in the right hands. The quality of her work is absolutely amazing, we are so delighted with all of our photos and everyone who has seen them has been amazed. We couldn’t recommend Janet enough, she is amazing at what she does.

Janet is an amazing, professional and creative photographer, with true passion for what she does! Not only did she provide us with the most amazing photo's, she actually enhanced our day with her positive attitude, calm and relaxed domineer and her bubbly attitude. We cannot recommend Janet enough, the whole family loved her too. And she was great at organizing every single shot to be perfect.

We got married September 2016, and were do we start with Janet,from the moment I meet her,I got a real warm and friendly feeling off her,I explained what we liked(well what I liked as a bride)I knew driving home that I was going to go with her. She replied to every email and every phone call straight away,I meet her a week before the wedding and again went over everything with her. She was amazing on the day,it was raining and we really wanted to go off on our own for photos,but Janet brought along the studio lights,knowing that we wouldn't get out but she wanted to get the shots,and that's exactly what she did. We collect our photos from Janet 2 weeks ago and WOW is all I can say,she brought tears to our eyes,she captured every emotion on the day,and there was a lot, we have watched the slide show many times already,and she really did just get us. I would have no problem to recommend Janet to any couple out there,she makes you feel so comfortable,as a lot of men don't like photos as much as us women,but we were so relaxed working along side her,book book book Janet or even give her a ring for a chat and I guarantee you will feel the same way we did when we met and spoke to her x enjoy your special day

I highly recommend Janet for your wedding photographer. We dealt mainly via email as I live abroad, and met Janet a couple of days before our wedding. I instantly felt so at ease with Janet's great personality and knew I had one less thing to worry about on the day. In fact, on our wedding day not only was Janet taking photographs, she also fixed my hair and made sure I had a drink in hand when I needed one. A true professional and the photographs turned out amazing. I am brought to tears every time I look at our slideshow as it truly captured all the emotions of our special day. Thank you Janet!

We met Jan at a LGBT wedding fair in Dublin about 8 months before our big day. For us having a photographer who understood our requirements and was prepared to try something different was key to our vision for day. We met up with Jan a few times before our wedding and found her personality, warmth and enthusiasm to be infectious. She brought her own ideas and demonstrated her knowledge and experience with some really exciting proposals. At the wedding she navigated her way throughout our day capturing memories without once being intrusive. We felt we were in the hands of an expert at all times. We have since received our photos and were chuffed and delighted with the quality and professionalism demonstrated. If we could do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing least of all our photographer. Chris and Chris

Janet was the photographer for a friend's wedding. After seeing her wedding album I immediately got Janets contact details. I firmly believe your wedding photographer is one of the most important factors of a wedding. I came to this conclusion after I had viewed my slideshow choose the photos and received my wedding album. Janet captured in her photos every ounce of love laughter and emotion of everyone on my wedding day. When I look at my album, I'm so happy. From start to finish it's amazing. Janet's positive personality is infectious. She is amazingly talented and in my opinion the best in her profession. We planned the photos before the day and she ensured every shot was taken and time management was perfect. I would recommend any Bride to sit and discuss your wedding with Janet. She will cater and 100% deliver on your chosen theme and give you ideas on how you want it finished. Lisa Comiskey
