Simon Peare Photography provides a relaxed natural fly on the wall style of photography for your wedding day. Most people are not used to being in front of a camera and being the focus of attention all day and it can be quite intimidating, so it is important your photographer makes you feel at ease. Sometimes it can be an idea to have a photographer at the bride preparations not just to get these images but also to get used to having a photographer with you. Often the best images can be the natural ones capturing a moment where people are unaware a photograph is taken.

Simon Peare is a Wedding, Event and Fine Art Photographer based in Dublin.

Simon was such a pleasure to work with on our wedding. He captured everything so perfectly on our day we were absolutely thrilled with our pictures when he sent them through. He was so calm and easy going and really made us feel at ease all day. We cannot recommend Simon enough, he is a superb photographer and very professional.

From the first phone call we had with Simon we just knew we would all get on. He is so friendly, calming and very funny! We had a few things to cover off before the wedding and Simon was always easy to reach via text and always would respond. The day of the wedding it honestly felt like having a friend around, he was supportive, calming, reassuring and got on great with everyone, he was great craic too! Simon knew we didn’t want the posey pictures but persuaded us to do a few and I have to say I am happy he did that because they are now some of our favourite ones that we will cherish forever. Simon picked one photo that he thought we would love and sent it to us the night of the wedding and it was such a nice touch, we did love it and I think we showed everyone in the room that night! We didn’t have to wait too long to get our pictures and once we did we were blown away, how he managed to get some of them we don’t know! I never remember him being right in front of me walking in or when we were both walking down the stairs! At times we had to question “was there two people there?!” (There wasn’t btw!!) We both hate getting our photos taken so he had a hard task but he done it so discreetly with great results! He is a great dog photographer too and he got the CUTEST pictures of our two dogs, which he knew meant so much to us. We cannot thank him enough and you would be lucky to have Simon as your photographer in our opinion! We would 1million per cent recommend Simon for your wedding!

Simon was excellent from start to finish. Communication was great, us living in the uk, it was so easy. He was so professional and made us (extremely camera shy people) feel so comfortable! We met with him before the wedding and he was so flexible having to move our date due to the pandemic. We absolutely love our photos and Simon turned them around in such good time. Thank you so much!!

We were really happy with all our wedding photographs. Neither myself or my husband are big into photos but Simon managed make all our photos look amazing. We would happily recommend Simon if you are looking for a professional photographer. We have so many photos we didn't even notice he had taken and some great real life photos of our guests having fun.

We were so lucky to have Simon do our wedding photography and we were delighted with every aspect of his service. He has packages to suit all budgets and will cater to any requests. He was very professional and very unobtrusive on the day which we really appreciated and he managed to take gorgeous natural photographs which we just love. We would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Thanks Fiona and Alan, it was great meeting both of you and your families. We were unfortunate with the weather but very lucky that you were able to get married before the lockdown. Thanks again Simon

Can't recommend Simon highly enough. We are so so pleased with our pictures, he really captured every moment so perfectly and made us feel so at ease on the day. Thank you Simon!
Response from Simon Peare Photography
Thanks Niamh, It was a pleasure. I don't think I could have stressed you guys out if I had tried. Definitely the most chilled out wedding of 2019. It was great we were able to get to the park as well for some pictures after the ceremony

We found Simon through based on criteria for our budget and a number of other options. Based on the work on Simon's website we found him and excellent choice for our needs for our wedding. Communication was always on point and found Simon very easy and friendly to deal with, which included a an additional consultation about our wants for the wedding a week or 2 beforehand. On wedding day Simon was very prompt and smartly attired for the occasion (smart casual) and good fun to engage with (nice witty humor :D) Simon was non intrusive on the day, casually moving around the guests and ceremony an had great engagement to make others comfortable for photos. All our guests had great things to say about Simon from how he interacted, professionalism, ability to engage with the hotel staff seamlessly and the quality of his work. We would very much recommend Simon to anyone who needs an engaging and quality photographer for their day.

Thank you Simon. haven't even got our photos yet but I was only saying I didn't even notice you at the ceremony you weren't all over us which made it so much more relaxed compared to what I have seen at other weddings. any photos I asked for you had no problem doing. I loved the kids in the wedding dress and you showed me a fantastic picture you captured of kev and the champagne disaster looking forward to getting all the pictures

Thanks Sharon, I like to be as discreet as possible. It's your day not mine.

From the first moment we talked to Simon we knew we were going to be in good hands. He was very professional from start to finish but also is just a lovely person to deal with. He has a natural eye for capturing truly beautiful moments but does so in a relaxed way. I have been to lots of weddings but just found his fly on the wall approach so great and by doing this he captures truly natural shots throughout the day. I would 100% recommend Simon to any couple looking for a nice relaxed photographer who will put you at ease throughout the day so you can get on with the mingling and partying.
Response from Simon Peare Photography
Thanks Rebecca for the review. Everyone was so easy to deal with and I was delighted to be able to photograph your wedding

Cannot reccomend Simon highly enough, a natural and laid back. He listens to what you want then gives you advice where needed. He blended into the crowd so we got great pictures, Simons a natural. Our pictures are amazing and I am still in the process of getting pictures only because I cannot make up my mind with the wonderful selection given to me.

Simon was our photographer for our wedding in Anglers Rest in June 2018. We are absolutely delighted with the quality of the photographs. On the day Simon was terrific, during the ceremony we hardly noticed that he was there yet he got some amazing shots. He got loads of quality natural shots of us and our guests throughout the day. We are also very happy with all the posed shots that we took that day in the phoenix park. Would highly recommend.
Response from Simon Peare Photography
Thanks Joan and Ger. It was great to be part of your wedding. There was a lot of laughter on the day and was lovely to meet you and your family and friends and Fudge the dog :)

I came across Simon purely by chance on a add on Facebook and decided to get in touch. From the beginning, Simon responded to my emails very promptly and in a very professional manner. He visited us in our home a couple of months before the wedding so we could discuss what we wanted on the day and get to know us a little. He suggested some options of nearby places between the registry office and our venue where we could take pictures. We were not sure in what order to proceed with the pictures and his experience was very welcomed. One the day, Simon arrived early, he guided me in a very soft manner for a few pics just before the wedding itself. After that, we did not notice his presence anymore. For the rest of the day, he managed to capture moments with our friends and family without us noticing resulting in incredibly natural photos. We are delighted with the result and the souvenir we will have of our wonderful day. Parents and other family members who recently browsed thru our pictures have all mentioned how lovely they are and how good of a job Simon did. Simon not only delivered perfectly but also kept communicating with us during the months of preparations which did put me at ease as he was always there to answer any queries we had. Most importantly, he listened to what we wanted while adding some suggestions, never in a pushy manner and therefore our pictures reflect us as a couple, our personalities and the fun day we had. I would absolutely recommend Simon to anyone for his professionalism and quality of work.

Simon was a dream to work with. I found him through an advertisement on Facebook and noticed he was based in Dublin. I got married in The Glenview Hotel on 12th May, i had been in regular contact with Simon up until that special day. He was so friendly and attentive throughout the day, something which a lot of my guests commented on. When i got the photos off him they were simply stunning, i would highly recommend him as a wedding photographer, he has given us memories to treasure forever!

Thanks Pamela, it was a pleasure to work with yourself and Leo. I wish you all the best in your future together.
