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).

EXCELLENT!!! We could not recommend Stargaze Photography highly enough. Daragh is super professional, friendly and talented. Our whole wedding day went off without a hitch because Daragh had put us at ease beforehand with regard to the logistics of the day and how it would play out. 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. We also got the photobooth on the night which our guests LOVED and the added bonus is the photobook it comes with with little notes from the guests with the picture from the booth inside. We would highly recommend Daragh for your wedding or event, you wont regret it :)

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'd highly recommend Daragh to anyone that is looking for a wedding photographer, he's a fantastic photographer with an amazing eye for detail and his wedding packages are great value.

Daragh is a brilliant photographer we are so happy with all the photos we got back, and didn't have to wait long either. He was very professional on the day. We had no plan really for the photos and he was able to organise us all to get gorgeous photos of all the wedding party and families. He got all the important moments and the photos were captured beautifully. Daragh captured lovely natural shots of the wedding party and guests throughout the day that are fab, as well as lovely group photos. He was so easy going throughout the day and a pleasure to have with us. I would highly recommend daragh and stargaze photography for any brides looking for a photographer for their special day!

We had our wedding in Trim Castle on 30th August 19. I had the pleasure of hiring Daragh who's work was amazing. From the initial call when we discussed what type if photos I wanted to receiving the finished product Daragh made everything so easy and stress free. He listened to what style of photos I wanted and really payed attention to the little details of the day . Highly recommended.

Daragh was an absolute pleasure to deal with on our wedding day. He was great to capture so many natural shots of us enjoying our day and he made everyone feel very comfortable. We had a great laugh too with him and we're so happy with the collection of photos he captured for us! Thanks again Daragh!

We got married on August 3rd 2019 and Darragh was our photographer. From the first bit of contact I had with him, he was so helpful and professional. He explained each package that he has to offer ... All are great value. On the day of the wedding he was extremely professional and friendly, he went above and beyond to ensure he captured the photos we wanted. The following day he sent me one of the photos which I was shocked and thrilled at how quick he was at getting it to us. When we recived our photos a few weeks later we were absolutely delighted at how amazing they were. Would highly recommend Darragh at stargaze!! Sharon and Dave

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 chose Daragh as our wedding photographer and we are so glad we did. He was a complete professional from the very beginning. He has a fantastically creative eye and is also very discreet. He fitted into our day seamlessly. Thank so much for all your hard work on the day, can't wait to see the photos!

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 an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. We are a very relaxed couple and he had great patience with me. When I received our Wedding album it was such an emotional feeling to see how well he captured one of the most amazing days of out lives together. I would highly recommend Darragh. He is truly amazing at what he does, such a talent and I can not thank him enough.

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. He was really quick with sending us previews and we were blown away when we got the final photos, as were our friends and family. I couldn’t recommend him more!

We would highly recommend Stargaze Photography. Daragh was so easy to deal with and made us feel very comfortable throughout. We barely knew he was there and all the photos were excellent. Communication was easy and Daragh was always quick to respond. Price was competitive and the turnaround time of the finished product was very quick. So grateful to Daragh, we would highly recommend him to be your photographer.

Our wedding day was 28th Dec 2018 from start to finish was an amazing day! Darragh from stargaze photography made us feel so relaxed throughout, He got all the shots we wanted and never once felt like he was in the way, he blended in like a wedding guest! Just received the wedding albums, and they are unreal The attention to detail, the finish and the casing it arrived in, I couldn’t have asked for better! Stargaze also provided our inflatable photo booth on the night which went down a treat with the guests ! I would highly recommend Darragh, incredible value for money and really genuine guy,

We both agree Daragh our photographer from Stargaze photography is amazing, he went above and beyond for us, he is such a lovely person, he was a joy to have on the day and captured our day so well. Our photos are something we will cherish forever. Daragh also supplied our photobooth which our guests loved. We highly recommend Daragh for wedding photography.

15th Sep 2018
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!

11th Aug 2018
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 brilliant from start to finish. Professional, friendly, never a delay in answering queries and most importantly he took the most beautiful photos of our wedding day. He truly captured all of the special moments and we never felt like he was "in the way". Daragh was energetic and confident in what he was doing on the day, he knew what he was looking for in a great picture and we will never tire of looking at our wedding photos. We know many of our guests commented on what a lovely guy he is. Thank you Daragh.

Daragh is a real professional. Never any issue with the run up to the day. Morning of the wedding I barely even noticed he was there, takes his own initiative and has a great attention to detail. He was so quick getting our photos to us and we were delighted! A true gent and a true professional!
Response from Stargaze Photography
Thanks guys it was a marvellous day spread out across all sides of Limerick City, I enjoyed it so much and got to see many locations including the Boat House on the Plassey River were you wanted your photos done. Together along with the Video guys Niall & Caimin we created some magic moments that will live on forever. All the best and we shall meet again some time in the near future. All the best Daragh

Darragh was very nice and the photobooth was good quality, the only downside i found was the way he stuck the photos on the book (all in the same side of book) has now left it unable to close and looks unsightly. Other than that the photobooth was great and our guests loved it!

Daragh is a fantastic photographer. I wanted someone who blended in so the photos were relaxed and natural and that’s exactly what daragh did. I hate having my photo taken but daragh was so friendly and easy going that I didn’t mind at all on the day. We couldn’t have been happier when we received our photos they are beautiful. And the presentation box is fab. I would highly recommend daragh.
Response from Stargaze Photography
Cheers Emma for the lovely words! You guys were a total breeze to work with, everything about your wedding day was so chic and classy. There are no words to describe how amazing Dublin City Hall is as a wedding venue, you guys absolutely rocked it. Looking forward to seeing you and Fergal around Dublin Town some time in the very near future. All the best Daragh xxx

We found Daragh to be very professional and approachable on the build up to our wedding and on the day itself! He is such an enthusiastic photographer and made us all feel very comfortable and at ease on the day. We are so happy witj the quality and style of our photos. There is the perfect mix of natural and more formal photos and this is exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely recommend Daragh as a professional wedding photographer!

Great setup and service from Daragh.He worked away in the background without any fuss and before we knew it a fully functioning photobooth was up and running at our wedding for people to enjoy!I have been to a couple of events with standard photobooks but this one was pretty cool as it was a blowup version and fit in really well to the marquee. Daragh was quick to respond to any questions and also provided the digital photos and photobook really quickly after the wedding. Daragh provided an excellent, professional service and would highly recommend Stargaze for any event. Thank you!!

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.

Couldn't have asked for more on the day. Daragh captured moments we wouldn't have even remembered. His professionalism and enthusiasm for his job is outstanding. He fit right in from the moment he arrived until he left. Everyone is still talking about how good the camera lads were. We got our albums back and every time we open them, it's like watching the day unfold all over again.

We had Daragh do our wedding. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with.He was in the house with us from early morning and you wouldn't even know he was there. He got some great shots in the house. He really blended in and mingled with the family and guests. The pictures captured were all very natural which i wanted as i was a very laid back and relaxed bride. We are delighted with our wedding albums both ours and our parents. I would highly recommend Daragh to any future couples.

My husband and I were so happy with the photos Stargaze Photography captured of our Wedding day. Daragh met us weeks before our wedding to discuss what kind of style we wanted etc. We wanted a relaxed candid style. Daragh captured relaxed natural photos of my husband and I and of our guests throughout the day. We are so happy with the album and didn't have to wait to long before we got the photos back. The day goes so fast so it's great to have the photos of the whole day and evening. Daragh was very professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
Response from Stargaze Photography
Thanks so much guys your wedding day rocked, no doubt one of the coolest weddings held anywhere in 2017. You're genuinely a lovely couple and we wish nothing but the happiest times ahead for you both. Daragh xxx

Really nice man that couldn't be any more accommodating. We had our wedding in Ibiza and he flew out for the wedding and was a pleasure to work with. He got every photo we wanted to get and more and also he was very quick with getting our wedding album printed and delivered to us. I would highly recommend Daragh for anyone's wedding

18th May 2017
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 :-)
Response from Stargaze Photography
Thanks guys, was a pleasure to be part of your day. Wishing you guys and the future new addition to family all the best in your lives together. Warm Regards Daragh.

We recently got married and we went with stargaze photography to do our wedding photos. We can't recommend Daragh from stargaze highly enough, he was so professional and helpful/accommodating before and during our wedding day. Daragh captured the day perfectly with stunning photos that we will treasure. He worked closely with us when putting the fabulous wedding album together and the final results were fabulous, more than we could have imagined. We can't thank stargaze enough for capturing all those special moments for us and for any couples looking for a photographer, look no further than Daragh & stargaze
