I absolutely love weddings. I adore the buzz, the anticipation, the excitement, the emotion and the amazing celebration of family and friends coming together! I feel so privileged to be involved in what will be most fantastic days of your life and will work so hard to help create and capture your special day in the most natural way possible. I love to capture spontaneous and natural moments and of course all the laughter and joy throughout the day. Its those little moments that make the memories.

My style of photography is relaxed, natural and informal. Being relaxed myself definitely helps the bride and groom to feel comfortable too so the whole day feels calm and informal. As a result, the photos taken are natural ones with genuine laughs. I have three small children myself so really love to capture the delight of the little ones on the day too.

I am very sensitive to people and my surroundings. I am very unobtrusive and will blend in well with your guests too making sure to get lovely reportage style shots while everyone is enjoying themselves. I appreciate the subtleties of form, light and colour and find magic in ordinary, everyday things.

I would love to be part of your day to tell your story!

Sarah captured the most important day of our life back in November and we will both be forever grateful for the beautiful pictures that were captured of our special day. It was from start to finish such a enjoyable experience (on the wettest day in Galway) to have Sarah share our day, being there from early in the day to late in the evening. After the day, guests commented on how nice a person she was and non-intrusive when taking pictures in the church & venue. From the outset, she’s genuinely interested in your plans and is a great resource for helpful information and planning tips. On the day, she radiates calm and positivity. She manages to keep everyone in order to get those group shots done, while being really lovely to be around. She’s not one of those annoying bossy photographers. She captures all the little details you forgot to tell her you wanted captured! this is because she takes the time to get to know you. Thank you Sarah for making the perfect kodak moments from what to us was, a perfect day!

Sarah is an amazing photographer! We were thrilled with our photographs, we had to whittle down from 500 for our wedding album which was a challenge in itself!! On the day Sarah was so easygoing and made our day so relaxed and so much fun when taking the photographs, whilst being incredibly professional. We found her great value for money and would recommend her in a instance to anyone getting married who is looking for a photographer, lovely lady & a fabulous photographer!

We were lucky Sarah was available for our wedding photos! Organising from abroad Sarah quickly tuned in to our needs and was a great communicator. She was so warm and easy to work with on the day, capturing all the important moments unobtrusively and fitting in as one of the guests! She took the time to get to know names which immediately put everyone at ease. The images themselves are beautiful and natural capturing the essence and emotion of the day. We highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Dear Sarah, We would like to say a massive thank you for being our wedding photographer and for doing such a wonderful job! We had an amazing day which you have captured beautifully. We love that you captured all the truly special moments of our day for us to have forever. You are fantastic at your job, because you have an amazing talent for getting those real moments at just the right times and also because of your relaxed and warm nature. We had such fun with you and really enjoyed sharing our day with you. We knew from our first meeting with you that this would be the case and it gave us great peace of mind in the lead up to the wedding. We can't thank you enough for everything, we will be recommending you to everyone!

Dear Sarah Connolly Photography Thank you so much for everything. We are so delighted with our wedding photos. You were so professional and so delightful to work with. You really made our day. Everyone said what a great job you did. Apart from a few very happy tears, it was big smiles all round and I think you captured them all. You have given us the most wonderful reminders of our wedding day. It will be really difficult to pick out what photos we want from such a huge selection. We can't wait to see the finished product. Best wishes for the future Sarah, we couldn't recommend you highly enough.

Sarah, you were an absolute pleasure to work with on our wedding day. It was obvious to us that you were very well prepared in advance of our big day. You had plenty of ideas and suggestions for shots and locations. You managed to get the most amazing photographs and showed great diversity in the range of photographs you took. So many of our guests commented on how friendly and professional you were and that your presence was so discreet that no one realised they were being photographed. You worked tirelessly on the day to ensure that we have photographs to treasure. Thanks so much

We really enjoyed working with Sarah in the run up to the wedding and on the day. Sarah spent the time to get to know us and what we wanted and had some great suggestions for the pictures. Sarah also took the time to get to know our families names and who we wanted in the shots, which I thought added a nice personal touch. We were really delighted with how everything turned out. Thanks Sarah!

Sarah, just a quick note to thank you for taking our wedding photo’s. From the first meeting we were really happy with the way you listened to our ideas and gave us good suggestions on how to capture the day. On the day you were really calm and understanding, but you also made sure that we got some beautiful photos without any hassle. We were really happy when we saw all the little details that were captured and feel that the pictures reflect the day perfectly. We will be more than happy to recommend you to future couples!

Dear Sarah I just can't express how thrilled, excited and delighted I was to see our wedding photos online yesterday - I've already looked through them an embarrassing amount of times!! They are beautiful far beyond my expectations and I can't believe how perfectly you captured the very essence of our day. To have such a great selection of images to draw from for albums, framed pictures and presents for family is more than we could have hoped for. I also love the natural feel to the photographs which a great testament to your expertise. It was an absolute pleasure to have you there on the day and if anything you added to my experience. Your background research was evident when you were easily able to recall all the names of parents and siblings with ease - this left a lasting impression on my Father-in-law. My mother-in-law remarked last night that she felt like she had know you forever - I think that says it all! I also want to thank you for having our photographs for us so soon after the event, I really didn't expect to see anything for a long time and was so pleasantly surprised when were able to access them so soon, as was all of the family. You have given Simon and I beautiful mementos of our amazing day which we will cherish forever, looking through the images is like being able to always keep a part of that day alive and for this I will be eternally grateful to you!

Hi Sarah Just want to say a big "Thank You" for the wonderful photos of our wedding day. They are all fabulous and we are really thrilled with them! You made everyone feel at ease on the day. Thank you also for coming to my Grandparents house to have some taken with them - it means alot. We had mentioned to you that we wanted our photos to come across as laid back and casual and you captured that perfectly. We didn't even let the rain bother us and have great fun in the rain getting the few we wanted taken. Lots of people have complimented on your photography skills and are very impressed with our photos. Thanks so much again for helping us re-live our special day with the fabulous photos.

Sarah, Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. You managed to take such gorgeous pictures without ever being intrusive and arranged our bridal party and family photos with total professionalism. Every minute of the day was captured for us to enjoy in the years ahead. We are thrilled with the photos and are so proud to show them off. We couldn't recommend Sarah highly enough!

Sarah, Stunning is the only way to describe the photos you took. We looked at them yesterday and we amazed by the amount of work you so obviously did. You captured our day and indeed the emotion we were all feeling on such an important occasion. Your calm, relaxed and professional approach was exactly what we were looking for, especially in our slightly chaotic world. You have given us the most wonderful reminders of a beautiful day. Wishing you all the best in the future,

Sarah, Thank you for capturing the best memories from our big day recently. You managed to catch wonderful snapshots of the most important moments, from beginning to end, all the while remaining in the background! You have an excellent eye for photography and a skill of seizing that perfect ‘Kodak moment’! Wishing you continued success for the future.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos. We were grateful for the way in which you managed everything so subtly in the wedding morning mayhem and then persuaded us to withstand the cold on the beach so that we ended up with amazing shots. We can’t believe how hard you had to work on the day, whilst still finding time to take candid shots of all our friends and remaining super calm. Thanks for being so organised and flexible throughout the process from our first meeting, to responding to multiple emails at lightening speed, to ensuring all the family were gathered for photos on the day and sending us the photos so soon afterwards. You’re a seriously talented photographer!”

My fiancee Sarah and I were at our wits end looking for a photographer who was modern, contemporary and had a touch of class. When we found Sarah Connolly we found it all! On our first meeting with Sarah, she took time to get to know us, and showed us some of her recent albums. We knew we had made the right choice. On the big day Sarah was amazing. She put everyone at ease with her friendly, relaxed manner. She was very quick and creative taking the pictures. On receiving our photos so promptly after the wedding we were speechless the first time we saw them. Sarah did a beautiful job and captured every essence of our day. Thank You so much Sarah we have something that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

Hi Sarah, Thank you for capturing every moment of our wedding day perfectly. In our initial meeting we had requested certain photos that we wanted taken, you captured them better than we could ever have anticipated. Both families were very impressed with your ability to get all photos taken with such ease and little fuss. Even though it was December & it was raining you still managed to get the most beautiful photos at the Quad for us. Our favourite photos are the most natural ones, from the ones you took of both of us smiling and laughing, guests enjoying themselves and our nieces and nephews, been both happy and tired, really captured the essence of our day. You made the whole experience very relaxing and enjoyable, we did not feel for one minute that we were posing all day for photos. Our biggest problem is choosing the photos from the huge selection you took for us, we look forward to the finished product. We have already been recommending you to our friend’s. Best wishes for the future and thanks again.

Dear Sarah, Thanks again for doing such a great job in taking the photos of James. I don't know how you managed to capture so many great shots when he was moving around so much and irritable. You're patience and professionalism were very much appreciated and your relaxed style was perfect for sleep deprived parents and 10 month old . Your coming to our home made it so much easier and yet you managed to make the most of our limited backdrops! Our family members who have experience of studio portraits were really impressed and thought it was such a good idea doing portraits in the home. We have recommended you already and will continue to do so.

When we booked Sarah for our wedding I thought to myself that it wouldn't be the easiest wedding she ever worked on - the bride's side in particular being very camerashy. However I needn't have worried as she whipped us into shape in no time without us even realising it! Sarah's confident approach and calm manner put everyone at ease very quickly. The result is a collection of really lovely posed and unposed photos of family and friends which will be a fantastic momento for years to come. We couldn't recommend Sarah highly enough to photograph any occasion with family or friends.

we have looked at our wedding photos and are absolutely delighted with them. On the day we could not have asked for a more professional, calm and talented photographer. Sarah organised our day so well and as a result we have beautiful photos that we will cherish so much. We would highly recommend her, any couple that have any questions feel free to contact us. Thank you so much,
