After seeing Sean at work as a bridesmaid at my friends wedding I was thrilled to be lucky enough to have him photograph our wedding on 22 Oct in Fossa Church and the Dunloe Hotel! Sean's professionalism, standard of service and final products are outstanding! In particular, Sean is a hugely positive addition to the day and quickly puts you at ease while getting amazing photos! He goes above and beyond the call of duty and we would highly recommend!

If you want the most incredible, unique, natural looking photos, book Sean. I can not recommend him enough! He was so incredible on the day, aside from his amazing skill as a photographer he was kind and patient and so helpful. I am totally obsessed with our photos and he captures the day so wonderfully! 10/10

Before ever even getting engaged we knew we wanted Sean as our wedding photographer. From start to finish he was incredible to deal with. We had a handful of pics we wanted and left the rest to him and we are just blown away at how amazing the photos are. He made everyone feel so at ease and was super patient whenever our son needed us. We didn't even notice him during our ceremony and reception. He put up with or craziness and just rolled with it. We genuinely can't thank him enough. He truly is the best of the best and we are so grateful to have had him be part of our day.

We could not recommend Seán highly enough. From start to finish, Seán was so professional, thoughtful and calm. His attention to detail is second to none and he made sure myself and my husband were comfortable throughout the whole day. Not only did he take control and work his magic on loads of amazing shots, he also listened carefully to whatever we wanted too. Seán’s communication both before and after the wedding was wonderful and was always on hand if we had any questions. The day was captured so beautifully by Seán and we loved every minute of working with him.

I would highly recommend Sean Sharpe Photography. We organised our wedding from abroad, that was no issue for Sean, he was flexible with zoom meetings and very responsive on email. Sean listened to what kind of photos we wanted but also made suggestions and helped guide us when we were unsure. On the day he was brilliant to work with. Very easy to get along with, not intrusive but also a nice little joke here and there. He was very efficient with the couple photos meaning that we had plenty of time to come back and join our wedding reception. We were really happy with the finished product, he really captured the true essence of our special day. Thank you Sean.

I honestly cannot recommend Sean highly enough. He is exceptional and what he does and is both professional and a down to earth lovely person. From the moment we meet Sean for our engagement shoot we were instantly at ease with him and knew we had made the best choice for our wedding day photographer. He just blends into the background and gets amazing shots without you even realising, capturing both the fun and emotional moments of the day. He puts so much effort into getting the best shots he can possibly get for you on the day with his attention to detail and lighting second to none. We have such amazing photos to look back on to remember our day so thank you so much Sean we are so grateful. Sharon & Shane

There just aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Sean Sharpe is. He was instantly able to put us and our family at ease. On time, Got to every location before us, followed through on everything he said he would do and even sent us a few pictures just a few hours after leaving us. We love our wedding pictures! We will treasure them forever. We simply cannot recommend him enough!

In hindsight, there are probably two major things to consider when choosing a photographer: the photos themselves and the experience. We had seen Sean's photos online when booking and they stood out to us as being exceptionally romantic with stunning lighting. Wow - we were not disappointed with our photos. Every single one of them could be framed for the wall! They are absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Sean, very kindly, sent us a sneak peak of a few photos on the evening of the wedding and we were just blown away by those too. On the experience with Sean on the day, I think we had underestimated just how much time you have with the photographer on the day and how important it is to have someone you feel comfortable with. My house was so busy on the morning of the wedding with everyone getting ready. Although Sean was there to take photos, he was also there having little chats keeping me calm!... and guiding me on what needed to be done next. I think I'll look back on the time we had after the ceremony taking photos with just ourselves as a highlight from the day. As two people who wouldn't usually be fans of having our photos taken, it was the one moment that we had to the two of us. Sean guided us through the photos we wanted without being intrusive while giving us a chance to have our little chats in between and to appreciate just what was happening on the day. Finally, we were a bit nervous of getting photos with all of the children in our family thinking it might be a bit chaotic but Sean was cool as a breeze and snapped away happily. I cannot recommend Sean enough. He is great fun, personable, and so very talented at what he does. You will not be disappointed.

We could not recommend Sean enough. Everything from start to finish was top class. He was extremely professional to deal with from the beginning and we never had any worries. We did not dream that the photos would turn out as amazing as they are. He captured every single moment of our day yet we never felt like we were making any effort/posing. He let us enjoy our day yet still achieved photos we will look back on and cherish forever. He could not have been nicer to us and all our guests. We feel so lucky to have got him to photograph our day and he really did make it so special. We cannot thank him nor recommend him enough.

We are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photos. From the start of the day to the finish, Sean was such a wonderful presence and we cannot thank him enough. All our guests commented on how friendly and warm he was. I loved his calm yet professional approach on the day. His passion and enthusiasm shines through in his photography. Our photos have every element we could want; from the gorgeous sunset captured by the sea to the special moments of family and friends! For us, we wanted a photographer that would capture those special, treasured moments and people in our lives in a natural and effortless way. Sean was able to catch those moments beautifully - such a talent. He himself is a gem of a person. We would highly recommend Sean to any future couple.

Sean is a genuinely nice person and a dream to deal with. From first contact all the way to receiving our final photographs, our experience with Sean could not have been better. Value for money and quality of service could not be faulted. To have someone as part of your wedding who just blends in with the guests and puts everybody at ease can not be understated. If you are lucky enough to have Sean photograph your big day, have total trust in him. The end result will speak volumes.

We had Sean as our photographer for our wedding back in Nov 2021 and I cannot recommend him enough. Sean was absolutely brilliant to work with from the get-go. On the morning of the wedding, he blended in seamlessly and chatted away making everyone feel nice and relaxed. Having seen samples of Sean’s outstanding work online I knew our photos were going to be stunning, but Sean outdid himself! We could not be happier with the photos we received; they are simply gorgeous! Sean did an amazing job, and there are simply not enough words to express how happy and impressed we were with Seán and we would highly recommend him.

WOW our reaction to every photo Sean took of our wedding day. Sean was absolutely fantastic from start to finish on our big day. His passion for his work shone throughout and made us feel so at ease in the midst of the morning chaos which is getting ready. Sean was just so friendly, approachable and was in constant communication with us so we knew exactly what was going on. He just blended in with the crowd as if he was not there which resulted in some fantatsic photographs. A truely simplied approach without excessive posing which really settled our nerves on an already stressful day with all the planning involved. Choices for photo locations perfection!!!! Effects and props inspired choices!!! Service outstanding!!!! Thank you Sean, you are truely amazing and we would highly recommend Sean Sharpe Photography.

We cannot recommend Seán highly enough! When looking for a photographer whilst living in the UK all our search was based online.We were really taken with the refreshing style of Seán's photos which didn't appear too heavily edited and included lots of really candid moments. Seán was so patient with all our questions and quick to respond to any queries we had when planning the day which was a relief when living abroad. He was so understanding and flexible when we had to move our date due to covid. On the day itself Seán blended in so seamlessly. He was a calming presence during the morning preparations and we also had a good laugh with him which is brilliant on the day when you're trying not to stress. Neither of us is a fan of being on camera all that much but Seán made taking the photos a lot of fun! We were particularly impressed with the drone shots he took! He managed to capture the day so well. Having just received the photos, we're over the moon with them. It's fantastic to have those memories to cherish!

We were so delighted that we went with Seán for the photographer for our wedding! From start to finish, he couldn’t have been more helpful through the whole process. On the day itself, Seán was great - really laid back, chatty with everyone and just made the whole process so relaxed. Having received the photos we are delighted with the quality, the moments captured, the mix of posed and natural photos. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!

From the minute Sean arrived he was incredible. We didn't even realise he was there he just blended in with everyone. His level of professionalism and the ability to see exceptional photo opportunities is unbelievable. Even at the end of the evening Sean spotted another opportunity for a unique picture in the dark. I would highly recommend Sean to every bride and groom out there.

Myself and my partner had Sean as our photographer for our wedding and from the moment he told us he was available for our date he went above and beyond for us. We had to postpone our original date and Sean worked around us without any fuss. He had so many great ideas for the pictures and they all truly came out amazing. He was there at the crack of dawn and left late that night with no issues. I could not recommend Sean enough to any couples picking a photographer he is so lovely to deal with and extremely professional.

We couldn’t recommend Sean highly enough for the amazing photos from our big day. From start to finish Sean’s energy and passion was matched only by his professionalism. He was respectful of everyone’s personal space, which was invaluable, and all our guests commented on how good he was. Sean struck the perfect balance for us on our big day. He let the wedding take centre stage and captured some amazing candid shots, while also knowing the appropriate time to take us away for our personal shots. We love all of the fantastic photos Sean took, from the fun loving photos of our guests, to his elegant intimate photos of us together. We would suggest anyone who is looking for a photographer to talk with Sean.

Sean was a pleasure to deal with. He was a real gentleman. Somehow he was both very creative and made sure he got the shots he wanted, while also blending into the background. Before the end of the wedding day, he edited 20 shots quickly and sent them to us in case we wanted to post anything online immediately. Prior to the wedding, he was always available and a fantastic communicator. He also kept in touch with other vendors, like the videographer and venue to ensure everything was smooth on the day. We couldn’t be happier with the service provided - we have already recommended him for a friends wedding, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him again.

Seán was a fantastic photographer and really made our day special. He is an artist and has an amazing eye for capturing candid photos and in such detail. He was completely unobtrusive and blended into the background while covering all aspects of the day. The photos have turned out brilliant and are of extremely high quality. Seán was very friendly and open to our ideas and had some fantastic ones of his own. We are delighted we had Seán to capture our day and would highly recommend him to anyone.

There aren't enough positive words in the English vocabulary to describe our experience with Sean. He is simply a legend who supplied the photos of our dreams. He captured every essence of our wedding beautifully, telling through his creative eyes the story of our magical day. Sean was a pleasure to deal with in the run up to the day, he was reassuring, brimming with ideas, but also open to suggestions. We instantly felt relaxed around him, which is so transparent in the photos Sean captured. Our photo gallery is bursting with amazing photo after amazing photo. We would have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever to recommend Sean, you won't be disappointed.

We had Sean as our photographer for our wedding in April 2019 and I can't fault him at all. He was so professional and listened to our every request even the daft ones. He took time to go to our desired locations and took photos to show us it threw the lense, every time we met him it was so relaxed, he really put our minds at ease. On the day sean captured every detail he was so friendly and happy and added to the happiness of the occasion. He never got in the way but yet captured every moment. Sean sent us a few pics to post of social media before he left our venue on the night which was a lovely touch. I had made it very clear we didnt want to stand for a hour taking pics at the hotel with guests but yet he still captured beautiful photos of us with our guests but in a more natural way. His professionalism was outstanding, his quality of photos was outstanding and he was so respectful, tasteful and made our pictures so fun and relaxed. All in all he is a fantastic photographer so much so I even had Sean capture my daughters communion in May and he took some amazing picture of her and of our family.
