Darragh was unbelievable. It was no easy task with such a big family and small kids and Darragh did it effortlessly which allowed us to enjoy our day. He was so quick, efficient and knowledgeable. Thank you Darragh for making our day so much more enjoyable!

Darragh was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was so un-intrusive , we hardly even knew he was there during the ceremony! Even our priest commented on how he was like a ninja! Knew exactly the perfect moments to capture, the best angles and convinced me to give him 5 minutes at the Lake and I did not regret it! Looking back on the photos I am so thrilled I chose Darragh to capture our special day

We had the pleasure of Stargaze photography shooting our big day on December 27th 2022. We aren’t the most comfortable on front of the camera and not only did Daragh listen to us pre wedding day but on the day he made us feel so chilled out and a great laugh. He blended into the background and guests didn’t even know he was there meaning he caught some ace natural shots of friends and family. We would recommend Daragh to any couples who haven’t booked their photographer and also heard great things about him from our other vendors! Perfect! Thanks again Daragh! We wish you great success in the future.

Where do we even start with how amazing Daragh was. We booked Daragh back in 2020 for our wedding and eventually had our day in October 2022. After a few postponed date's we got there. Daragh was so amazing and accommodating in what should have been a very stressful time but he made it all so much easier. Daragh arrived the morning of the wedding and just blended in, he captured so many beautiful moment's, we didn't even realise he was there half of the time. He is an absolute gentleman and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Stargaze-photography and his work speaks for itself. Thank you so much Daragh for capturing such special moments of us and our Family. Lisa & Ian x

Daragh is absolutely phenomenal at what he does. He captured our big day back in September and when we received our photos, we were blown away by the quality and the shots that he took. For two very camera shy people, he completely put us at ease on the day. All of our shots came back so natural looking, which is what we had hoped for. Thank you Daragh for such amazing photography, we now have gorgeous photos which we cherish forever.

Daragh from Stargaze Photography covered our wedding in August 2022. Daragh was with us from morning preparations until after our first dance. From viewing Darragh’s previous work, we decided to let Daragh take the lead and guide us so that we would get the best photos of our big day. Daragh did not disappoint - his attention to detail was unbelievable and he made it all so enjoyable! Darragh captured so many beautiful candid moments of us and our guests too. Daragh was so discreet in his work, and someone you can have fun with too which is so important on your special day. I would definitely recommend Stargaze Photography!

What can we say about Daragh? He captured our wedding day in a way we could have only dreamed of. He managed to capture scenes from our wedding that encapsulated the highpoints of the day, they were natural and not posed at all. The photographs we received, in prompt time, were professional, candid and very well presented. We can't recommend Daragh enough!

Daragh was very professional and kept the show on the road throughout the day. He arrived in plenty of time on the day and captured the day beautifully. We were very fortunate to live near our church so Daragh was able to capture us at my house and also jump down to the pub to capture the groom and his groomsmen. Daragh granted all requests e.g. family photos after the church. We headed on to Kilkenny castle and the day was dull but absolutely perfect for wedding photographs. With tourists and scaffolding all to contend with, Daragh was well able to capture the moments with none of the former involved. Daragh stayed beyond 10am as our 1st dance was late and we really appreciated this as he could capture some more cherished moments which we will look back on and remember. We thank Daragh for granting our wishes and producing beautiful photographs which we will have forever.

Daragh from Stargaze Photography did a brilliant job photographing our wedding day. Daragh was present from the very beginning right until the party that night. He happily listened to all of our photography wishes and made sure to capture them all on the day, and wasn't phased by extra requests on the day! Daragh also supplied a photo booth which was a fantastic addition to the evening party. We got a copy of all the photos along with a guest book which provided us with plenty of laughs looking through it! We would highly recommend Daragh for his relaxed style photography and photobooth.

I knew straight away after talking to him that he was very experienced and was so looking forward to meeting him on the day! Having not met Daragh before he was like he was so lovely and fitted in so well he made everyone feel very comfortable in front of the camera from when he started early morning at my house! The photos came out fab I’m so happy with al of them I couldn’t fault him!

Daragh was such a great choice for our wedding photographer. He was well prepared in advance of the day and very much available for any questions we had. On the day itself he was great fun - very relaxed and had the chat with everyone in the morning while getting some snaps at the house. He made the best of a cold cold day getting our photos after the church and set up a really cool night shot later on! The turnaround on getting the digital images was quick and we loved the photos! He took a great mix of candid and posed shots (family etc.) that really reflected the vibe of the day from start to finish. Daragh had drafted the wedding album before he shared it for digital review, so it was an easy process of swapping in and out photos based on our preferences rather than a mammoth task. The album came a few weeks after the proof was approved, and the packaging and quality is really lovely. Overall, delighted we had Daragh with us on the day and would recommend his services to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer! Thanks Daragh!

Daragh photographed our NYE wedding and did not disappoint!! Between the pandemic and ever changing restrictions stress levels were already at their peak!! Daragh was professional, calm and reassuring every step of the way. He fit straight in and loved the craic with the bridal party during the prep. At no point did anything seem like too much effort and the images speak for themselves. We were so happy with our images and reliving all the moments of our special day was wonderful.

Daragh! What can I say.. there are not enough words but I'll try!! We had Daragh booked for our original date in June 2020 and were so happy when he was available for our new date. Daragh was very responsive and when we met, he came across as relaxed and easy going and it was why we picked him. He arrived in the morning and we all chatted away and had a good laugh. As lovely and funny as he was, when he took pictures throughout the day we barely knew he was there. We have pictures in our album that we never even knew he took and will cherish them forever. My favourite time of the day was when he consistently told us 'we were killing it'- no joke felt like we were posing for a magazine!! I would and have recommended Daragh to friends already. Whatever about our pictures being absolutely amazing (a bit biased) but the value for money you get alone is worth it. Thank you so much Daragh we are in love with our pictures. We may have only had 25 guests but you managed to get the most spectacular pictures with 27 people.

Daragh was our photographer for our wedding last month where we were joined by just 22 guests. We had previously postponed a much larger wedding in May due to covid and in the end, we brought our date forward with less than 48 hours to go before Level 5 restrictions were brought in. Throughout all of this, Daragh was amazingly flexible and helpful - always on the other end of the phone and email. On the day, he was relaxed and made everything happen super seamlessly (especially as I wasn’t as prepared as I’d hoped to be with the rush of rearranging everything last minute) All of this was so very appreciated by my new husband and I! As for the photos themselves, we got to see them all yesterday and they are even more than we could have hoped for. Each part of the day was captured so beautifully by Daragh - the lighting and colours is every shot are gorgeous! He is such a talented guy and we cannot wait to have this photographs hanging in our home forever. Thanks again Daragh!

We had our wedding on Halloween last, and after coming back from honeymoon and all the wedding buzz dampens down, we got to see our photos from Daragh. We got to relive the whole day again through our pictures. We LOVED THEM. My partner loved to see all the ones of us getting ready in house. Daragh ensured we got all the shots we need of everyone as the day goes so fast. We also stopped on the way to see my grandparents who were too unwell to attend and got photos with them and at the farm. Daragh was so kind,a perfect professional and we are delighted we went with him. He also suggested a wonderful videographer for us, and provided a photo booth for the evening in our package, (which goes down very well).

Daragh is very experienced and has a great eye for great shots. We are extremely happy with the photos from the day and we have so many to choose from.

I don't know where to begin, Daragh has just blown us away with our wedding photographs, I've spend most of the afternoon/evening crying (happy tears) re-living our wedding day through our beautiful photographs. Daragh has given us and our families so many wonderful memories to cherish forever. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, he was extremely professional and did exactly what we asked, he was in the background that much on the day, clicking away, that we actually forgot he was there.

We first contacted daragh for a price, like many other suppliers. He was very fast to respond, and asked us to meet him for a no commitment meeting to see his work. When we met daragh we knew he was exactly who we wanted to capture our special day. He showed us his photography styles and his album options. We booked there and then, we didn't need to look any further. He put up with message after message of stupid questions and requests, and always answered so professionally. Along came our amazing big day. When we were getting ready he took a few pictures but he also took other wedding items and tucked himself away upstairs taking the most beautiful pictures. I live across the road from the church so he ran back and forth taking many pictures. He went above and beyond at the photoshoot. He climbed the highest part of the furthest slate cliff at an abandoned quarry to take the most breathtaking pictures! Daragh was so discreet, we didn't notice him for most of the day yet he captured so many amazing moments throughout the day. We are beyond grateful for daragh and the job he did on our wedding day

We had Daragh as our photographer for our big day this year. We got married in The Dolmen Hotel St.Paul's Bay Malta. We are so glad that Daragh flew out to be with us on our special day. From the minute he entered the room I felt at eased. He is so professional and has so much creativity. From start to finish it really feels like our story and we couldn't be happier. We recieved our albums the other day and we were so overwhelmed with how beautiful they are. We will have these to treasure forever. We cant thank you enough for all the effort you put in for our big day. We are so happy that we had you as our photographer and would highly recommend you to any future couple.

Daragh travelled to Chester to photograph our wedding and we're so glad he did. We felt totally comfortable with him and he was ever present but never obtrusive. In the best way possible, we hardly knew he was there! I don't think Daragh sat still at all throughout the day because he was so busy capturing so many special moments for us and our guests. Before our big day Daragh was always super efficient at responding to emails and phone calls which was particularly important to us as we coordinated a wedding in the UK whilst living in Australia. We also hired the Stargaze photo booth and that was a huge hit! We ordered our wedding album through Daragh and we are delighted with the finished product. We had so many great photos to choose from but even when we narrowed our options down we were still able to edit our choices through Daragh before it went to print. The album is top quality and we're glad we opted for the package we did (photos, one big album and two smaller albums as well as the photo booth) as both sets of parents are very happy to have their own copies of our wedding album. We highly recommend Daragh and can't thank him enough for capturing our special day.

We had daragh for our big day in may and I cant thank him enough for the amazing work he did for us before, during and after the wedding. He was very accommodating to the different things I wanted (i.e. pictures with my dog etc) and came up with lots of different ideas to help encompass the things we wanted for the day. He had the photos back to us very quickly and arranged our album in no time. An excellent service and a true professional.

Darragh was such a professional, but also very personable and easy to work with. He was really organised and asked a lot of questions in our meeting before the day. On the day he was a really great person to have around. He made everyone feel totally at ease and took all the right shots.

Darragh travelled all the way from Kilkenny to our wedding in Sligo. During the day we hardly knew he was there, he was so unintrusive but also really put us at ease as neither of us are normally comfortable in front of the camera. We received the photos 6 weeks after the wedding as promised, they came out brilliantly - we really could´nt be happier with them. We would absolutely recommend Darragh to anyone looking for a totally relaxed but professional wedding photographer!

We were thrilled with our photographer, Daragh, for our wedding. Our photos turned out amazing, beautifully lit and framed. Daragh also managed to capture the mood of the wedding well - I wanted to remember how much fun the wedding was, and you could see it in the photos. Daragh turned up on time and stayed well past the time we had agreed so that he could capture the surprise dance show (that was running a little late). He's very friendly and professional - put everyone at ease, and still managed to take our photos quickly so that we didn't miss much of the day. We got our photos back within a few weeks, each one carefully chosen. Well recommended!

Daragh was quick to respond to any questions and also provided the digital photos and photobook really quickly after the wedding.

Darragh made us feel at ease throughout the day. He had all the pictures with us a couple of weeks after our honeymoon which was fantastic and a layout of the album ready really quickly too. After a couple of tiny changes the album itself was delivered within 4 weeks. Overall he was extremely professional and is a very talented photographer who captured our day exactly how we remember it.

I was delighted when I heard I won the competition of a photographer for our wedding day, with it being such an expensive time it was welcoming news. I expected I would get someone who was just trying to get their name out there and as he was free for the day not put as much effort in as if i was paying them but how wrong I was. We had an initial phone call and he got to know our personalities, I then met Daragh to go through the kind of photos we wanted taken and he showed me some of his previous work which is fab. He traveled nearly 3 hours to come to my house on the morning of the wedding to take photos of my beloved dog Molly who is getting old and really wanted to have some nice photos of her on the day. He then went ahead to the venue and took some before pics of the groom and then took photos of the whole ceremony, I know this because I have the photos as I didn't even notice him dong it on the day he was so discreet. He captured some lovely moments before the reception and then got the speeches and our first dance. He organised the photo booth for us too so he was there all day long. I would highly recommend Stargaze Photography to anyone and he will cater to all needs. Thank you again Stargaze :-)
