Couldn't fault the photographers from what I seen. They were extremely attentive and detailed and strived to work with some more difficult guests when it came to photos. The professionalism was outstanding and the photos I have see have been excellent! Thank you for making my friends day
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you very much Amanda! It is great to hear from a guests point of view as you are seeing things from a different perspective. Thank you again for your kindness! x

Amazing photographers, had the pleasure of working with them as bridesmaid to my friends wedding. They came well prepared, in good timing and exceeded the brides expectations. I cant wait to see all the photos

Tara and Dave are amazing! I really don’t know how else to say it! We met them at a wedding fair in the Heights Hotel (although had snooped the website before then) and from then we were confident in our choice to book then to capture our day. They were always helpful in any question we had and put us at ease during our pre wedding shoot a few months before! On the day they were amazing, from the time they arrived they were like ninjas managing to capture moments we probably didn’t even realise! The details in just our sneak peaks have been AMAZING! So excited to see more! Highly recommend Tara and Dave for any couple who want high quality photography! Thank you again Tara and Dave! Xx
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Love it! We should rebrand as photography ninja's! :) We have just finished editing your amazing day and it is uploading to your gallery!!!! :) Will be in touch shortly to share all the rest of the fun moments from your day with you. Thank you for putting your trust in us and inviting us to be part of your special day! xxx

Tara & Dave are amazing! We celebrated our 20th anniversary with a trip to Ireland from the US to renew our vows at The Blasket Centre / Ionad an Bhlascaoid Mhóir. Planning from 3,000 miles away is challenging but Tara was so helpful! We were immediately comfortable with Tara & Dave & had a blast on our whirlwind tour of beautiful Dingle to capture just the most amazing photos of our day! (These pics are 100 times better than our original wedding pics!!) Love you guys!!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Sheila and John, Thank you so much! We loved being part of your special day. You made us both laugh and cry! What a beautiful way to renew your vows! Thank you for choosing us to be there with you! x

Tara and Dave were our wedding photographers and were fantastic to work with. They got all the important shots we wanted , which wasn’t easy with 9 kids in the bridal party. They do their work in a lovely relaxed manor. Even helped with the brides dress! Highly recommend them!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you very much for your kind words! Your bridal party were fantastic! The kids were just gorgeous! :) As I said to you on the day its the perks of having a male and female photographer. I can help the bride with any dress issues and Dave is there to make sure the boys have their ties all done and buttonholes etc :) We look forward to working with you both on your beautiful album. xxx

They were wonderful. Tara was so kind and VERY helpful in so many aspects. Both of them were lovely and made the day special. Even though it was rainy and cold, they were troopers and captured some amazing photos! Would highly recommend them for anyone! VERY fast at response times also!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you very much Adrienne! Yes you had to battle with the Irish weather and you kept smiling through it all! You were both fantastic and an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you for asking us to be part of your special day. xxx

Tara and Dave were excellent photographers. We didn't have a firm idea of what we wanted but were able to give them a rough idea and they were able to guide us so that we got absolutely beautiful pictures. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get married in the Killarney area.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much! You picked the breathtaking backdrop of the lakes for your ceremony and it was just perfect. Thank you for asking us to capture your special day xxx

Tara and Dave were fantastic. They are so easy to work with and genuinely lovely people. We received out proofs very quickly.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Natasha :) Your wedding was definitely a highlight of the summer! :)
Review by Diana (cousin of the groom)
8th Aug 2019
Shooting a wedding overseas is not as easy as it seems. A photographer will most likely be in a unkown location, will have to deal with weather and different conditions than what they're used to. Tara and Dave were amazing in the way they handled the entire day, dealt with very hot weather, dealt with guests speaking a different language and shot in venues they had never seen before. They were very professional while still being fun and upbeat and the photos came out amazing!! I would give them 10 stars all the way! I already highly recommended them to other people.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Diana! We love a challenge and we were thrilled to be involved in such a beautiful destination wedding, even if we didn't speak the language! It is amazing what you can get people to do with a smile and a little direction! The locations were absolutely breathtaking and the couple were fantastic. It was a dream wedding! x

Tara and Dave did our daughter, Ciara’s, wedding in Killorglin and Killarney. They are truly amazing. Great fun, very very professional and above all produced the most beautiful photographs. I couldn’t believe how many photos were taken without even knowing we were being photographed.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Eileen! I absolutely love when I hear that photos were taken without you even noticing. So many people say that they hate having their picture taken! I always say not to worry but I don't think they ever really believe me until they see the finished product! We did have lots of fun too on Ciara and Tom's day and I LOVE their sunset pictures. Thank you again, it was a joy working with your family. xxx

26th Jul 2019
To put it simply, Tara & Dave are everything you could want in your wedding photographers, we couldn't have been happier! They came highly recommended to us and we would have no hesitation in highly recommending them to anyone else. Right from when we booked them in November 2017 they were quick to respond and always very helpful. On the wedding day itself in July 2019 they were so great to have around. We felt really at ease with them, their professionalism and passion for what they do just shines through, and they make you feel like more than just another wedding couple! We received our pictures only a week and a half after the wedding, which being so soon after was such a lovely surprise and helped with the wedding blues :D The pictures are stunning and even better than what we hoped for. We spent hours yesterday trying to decide which ones to choose for the album as we just love them all - there are definitely worse problems to have :) So thank you Tara & Dave, we will always be grateful for the memories captured by you both xx
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
WOW thank you so much! You had an amazing team on board for your day and it was a pleasure to be part of it. Thank you for being so much fun and even sneaking out of your dinner to capture the sunset! That was just magical! We look forward to catching up with you both over a coffee when you are back in Kerry again. Tara & Dave x

Relaxed......just what I wanted. They are the best at what they do, so particular but in such a subtle, easygoing manner. Can't recommend Tara and Dave enough
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you very much Helen & John. I laughed with you and your bridesmaids so much on your wedding day. You were such a great bunch. Nothing phased you :) I know Dave had just as much fun with the boys! You are a lovely family and we wish you all the very best. xxx

From start to finish, Tara and Dave made us both feel at ease, which in turn brought us some fantastic photos from , the day it self . The packages they offer and the quick and easy communication , which for us was done from England just made everything so easy . Would definitely recommend.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much!!! :)
Review by Ian and Jo Barry
16th Nov 2018
OMG where do we begin!! From the moment they popped in on the morning of the wedding, both Tara and Dave made us feel completely at ease. I (Jo) literally felt like Tara was one of my bridesmaids as she helped so so much with calming my nerves, giving advice, even getting me dress on!! And at the same time, the level of professionalism was amazing!! From start to finish these guys were so so kind, friendly and amazing at what they do! We can not recommend these guys enough!! So excited to see the photos!! All I can say is book book book these guys for your special day, they are AMAZING!! A massive thank you to Tara and Dave for making our special day even more special! You guys are awesome! Xx
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Ian & Jo, Thank you so much! It was great to work with you both and you picked such a beautiful venue! Thank you for braving the cold for the night shots they were completely worth it!!! :) We look forward to seeing you all again soon! xxx
Review by Niamh and Mike
10th Nov 2018
Tara and Dave were absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. They immediately put us at ease from the moment we met them. Neither of us like getting our photo taken, but they are so nice and easy going they made it so easy for us, the photos were captured before we even realised it. On the morning of the wedding Tara was a calming influence in a busy bridal suite, even doing up the many buttons on my wedding dress!They were so quick with the group shots too which is not an easy task. Tara was great with the kids at the wedding, getting them to smile and stand in for the pics when they just wanted to play. We absolutely loved the slideshow of photos at our wedding reception and that was only a snippet of what's to come. I would hire Tara and Dave again in a heartbeat, they are a great couple to have as part of your wedding and their work is fantastic.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Niamh & Mike! Yes I remember your worries about being in front of the camera, but neither of you had anything to worry about and our pre shoot thankfully put those fears to rest! Your wedding was fab and thank you for the AMAZING reaction to the slideshow at your reception. It is always daunting (for a perfectionist like me!) putting work up in front of so many people only a couple of hours after it was photographed. But the smiles on your faces was worth it! :) I can't wait to get working on the rest of your day and your album! Speak to you both soon! Tara & Dave xxx

The absolute best of the best for your wedding day. The nicest two people you could meet who totally blended in on the day. Even bring you to the toilet when your dress is too big ?? Had our engagement shoot with them too and the quality of the photos are just perfect!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Rachel, I am editing your wedding at the moment and when you said about the toilet I remembered I took the opportunity to take another photo while we were there LOL. Now I feel like I have to explain that one!! I took a close up shot of the label :) :) :) You guys were so much fun thank you for asking us to capture your day. I am absolutely loving the images we created together. Wait until you see them!!! xxx

13th Sep 2018
Our pictures turned out just beautiful; Tara and Dave really captured our day. As an extra bonus, they were a lot of fun to be with. Tara and Dave have such a happy energy, I could practically feel it when they arrived. This energy gets infused into the photos. I'm thrilled with how they turned out. Thank you Tara and Dave!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Ahh thank you Becky & Dan! I couldn't think of a nicer way to spend our wedding anniversary than capturing your love story. We will always be connected! :) Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness! Tara & Dave xxxx

25th Aug 2018
Tara & Dave are amazing! Such a lovely couple. They made us both feel so relaxed on the day. They are both so down to earth and they couldn’t do enough for us. They weren’t a bit intrusive, they knew exactly what they were doing. We cannot recommend them enough. We received our photos whilst on our honeymoon and they were absolutely stunning, they really captured every moment perfectly! Thank you both so much :-)
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Danica and Jack! We really appreciate that! Hope you had a fab honeymoon!!! See you next time you are back in Kerry! xxx
Review by Jon and Vivienne Nafie
21st Aug 2018
Photography is so important at a wedding, but it can be hard to find a photographer to capture all aspects of the event without being intrusive or "bossy". Tara and Dave worked together in a way that was humorous and had the guests laughing, creating many very genuine smiles in our group pictures. They went to great lengths to make sure all the images we requested were captured, but best of all threw in lots of candids that we didn't know about until we received the online gallery! We were delighted with the final photo gallery and really appreciated the flexibility to choose the images we love best. We highly recommend Tara Donahue Photography and at the end of the day felt like we were all best friends!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Ahh thank you so much! You guys are so kind. Please let us know when you are back in Ireland again as we would love to catch up with you both over an irish coffee ;) If we manage to plan our trip to the U.S we will make sure to come and visit you! xxx

11th Aug 2018
Tara and Dave were so lovely to work with, bringing relaxed vibes, good humour and amazing attention to detail when it came to getting those beautiful photos. We received a gorgeous sneak peak video soon after our big day and then our full photos shortly after that. They were very responsive and had lots of great suggestions for us at all stages of meeting them, pre-wedding shots and wedding shots. We would highly recommend them.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Donna & Frank! You were both a joy to work with. I loved your personal touches including your amazing veil. Your first look was also super fun! Let us know when your back in Kerry again & we can meet up for a coffee ;) x

10th Aug 2018
Tara and Dave were the best decision we made for our wedding! I was planning the entire day from NYC and they were incredible responsive and accessible via facetime and email. When we did get to meet in person, their laid back nature and humor solidified that we made the right decision. Our engagement photos were an amazing opportunity to get to know them and their style before the big day! On the wedding day itself, Tara and Dave kept us on time, but also kept us calm and so happy. You could tell they love what they do because they appeared to be having so much fun on our day, too! It did not feel like they were shooting "just another wedding", but really made us feel so special. They took every request we had and had the vision to make it even better! The photos we received were so good that they made the cover of a magazine, an opportunity so beyond my wildest dreams! The photos captured moments we did not know were happening and I feel so lucky that we will have them for a lifetime. The special, quiet moments and the images of the party were all better than the next. They were so professional on the day as well, sometimes you hardly knew they were there. More over, Tara and Dave became friends. Their passion for photography is not just in the images they capture, but the way they truly care about their couples. I cannot recommend them enough. Do not hesitate, book fast, and rest easy knowing you made the best decision!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Kate, It was great working with you both on such an AMAZING wedding. The thought and attention to detail that you put in really shone through and you deserved to be front cover!!! ! I am sure it was incredibly difficult at times planning from NY but it was worth all of your hard work. We look forward to meeting up with you for a drink or three when you are back in Ireland again! xxx

Got our wedding pics back and we could not be happier, they done an amazing job and are seriously talented! Like honestly I wouldn’t be the most photogenic and usually would cringe when I see pics of myself but I am soooo happy with all the pics, they are better than I could of ever imagined, we love them! They captured so many natural moments throughout the day along with fabulous family shots. Honestly will be recommending Tara and Dave to any brides to be, they really were amazing and lovely to deal with. We had such a good laugh throughout the day, absolutely delighted they were our wedding photographers. Thanks again.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you very much Aine, we had a fab time shooting your special day. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and hopefully we will meet up again soon! X

We are so lucky we had Tara and Dave as our photographers ! We were searching for photographers abroad ( were from Philadelphia) and we were out at ease when meeting them both ! Our biggest request was to capture us on off the cliffs and Dave was nice enough to climb with us while Tara captured beautiful shots behind us. We can’t thank and brag enough about our photos !! Highly recommend !!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you both :) We had so much fun with you in Sneem! Dave loves any excuse to go climbing and doesn't need much encouragement so he was only delighted! Let us know when you come for back again and we can go for another guiness :) Tara xxx
Review by Cath
25th May 2018
From my first conversation with Tara I knew she was the one to best suit my wedding day photo needs, I had seen some of her work previously and really liked the fun relaxed style. Tara and Dave who we met a few weeks before the wedding for engagement shoot made us feel so relaxed. On the day both of them were so friendly and yet so professional. They really understood what we were looking for and worked really well with our 3 young children. We love our wedding day photos and would recommend them highly. They were flexible, reliable, friendly, just really easy to be around and that’s what you need on such a special day.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Catherine! We are glad to hear that our relaxed vibe came across from the start! For me it’s important to bring that calmness to a stressful situation which it can be for some on a wedding day! You and your gorgeous family were so much fun! I loved the first look, the boys going for ice cream before the church and your guests all getting to have a cuppa and a catch up before the ceremony. It was a great approach and I would definitely recommend it to other couples! :)

Both Tara & Dave, were a joy to work with on our wedding day, also very helpful in the build up to the wedding. We received the most beautiful engagement and wedding photos, both myself & my husband were blown away! Could not recommend more.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Ah thank you so much Niamh! Looking forward to working on your album with you! x
Review by Nora and Paul
4th Apr 2018
Simply put, Tara and Dave are amazing. From the first email to the follow up emails after the wedding, they were so professional and at the same time, such good fun. They offer a wide range of packages and it was so easy to get everything we wanted as standard, engagement photoshoot and wedding albums included. They were so fabulous to have around the morning of the wedding, such a calming influence and they both know exactly what to say and do to solve every possible ‘crisis’! We had mentioned to Tara and Dave about maybe getting some scenic photos on the day of the wedding, they were both completely up for it, so on the day, we took off hiking and got some amazing shots that we will treasure forever. We both really wanted photos that didn’t have us standing posing for the day and that’s what we got with Tara and Dave. We have all the family portraits that we love, but all of our favourite ones are the ones that we didn’t even know were being taken.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Paul and Nora it was a first for us going for a hike up such a big hill on a wedding day! Looking up at it I thought they only mean a small bit up for the photos but oh no you guys meant the whole way up! ???????????? If you are going to do something, do it right!!! It was so much fun and an experience I will never forget. I can’t wait to take the boys up there some day. The view was amazing and well worth it!!! Thank you for sharing your special day with us. Tara & Dave xxx
Review by Denise Flood
29th Mar 2018
From first correspondence to the date of the wedding, wife and husband team Tara and Dave were fantastic to work with. Having two photographers was really excellent because Tara stuck with us girls for the preps in the morning and Dave went with the boys. From the beginning, they gave such an image of professionalism and showed that nothing was an obstacle. Their experience really shines through and they really know what works. Our wedding photos are just what we had hoped for. We never felt that they were intrusive and they made us feel at ease immediately - most of the time, we forgot that they were there, snapping away! I would highly recommend them!!! Thank you Tara and Dave!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Denise! There were so many special moments throughout your day! You picked a beautiful venue, made us cry during the speeches and had so many personal touches to make the day yours. It was perfect :)

Tara and Dave were absolutely fantastic throughout the day as well as leading up to it. We aren't the most comfortable around a camera but they made it very easy for us and we got beautiful images as a result. We would reccommend them to anyone planning their wedding.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
You guys were fantastic! You didn't let the cold bother you one bit and just got on with having fun during the photoshoot! :) Looking forward to catching up again with you all in the new year! x
Review by Rosa B
8th Aug 2017
Absolutely wonderful and perfect experience! Ireland was a destination wedding for us (we are from the US) and trying to find a photographer that you would not meet until a few days before the wedding can be stressful. All I can say is that Tara and Dave made the whole experience stress-free. They were wonderful with communication (even through our big time differences) and were easy to coordinate plans with. They even organized a meet-up and practice photo-shoot a few days before the wedding so we could get to know each other and also start to feel comfortable behind the camera. On the day of the wedding, Tara and Dave arrived promptly and were efficient in taking photos of everything we could want and need. Dave went to take pictures of the guys and Tara stayed with us ladies. This really made things flow well. At the church ceremony, I didn't even notice them in the church. I don't mean that rudely at all, but it was amazing how they captured the moments perfectly without being distracting during mass. Back at the reception site (Ballyseede Castle), they took care of rounding up all of our guests, including a few groomsmen who go "lost" at the bar back in town. It was so nice when they encouraged us to take 10 minutes by ourselves with no one else/no pictures, just to enjoy the moment. That really was appreciated. I originally thought that we wouldn't do staged pictures for long, but my guests had a different idea. They all wanted individual pictures with bride/groom. Tara and Dave were very flexible and the change in plans did not seem to worry them. They were very flexible and accommodating! After the wedding I had a back-home reception 1 month later. Tara put together a beautiful slide-show for me to show to family. Edited pictures also came back quickly. Overall, I could not recommend Tara and Dave more! They were fantastic to work with. If you are an out-of-town bride, like myself, search no further--you have found your photographers!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Rosa I read this review when you wrote it and I was so blown away by it that I forgot to respond!!! I am still looking forward to receiving an email from you to say you have booked another trip to Ireland and we can catch up again! You are an amazing couple with such lovely families too. Thank you for asking us to be involved in your special day. It really was a joy to capture. X

Tara and Dave were the ultimate professionals and guided us through our wedding day. They were aware of photo opportunities without being told and achieved the mix of natural and posed traditional photos that we wanted. I have been in touch with them on numerous occasions and they were always very responsive and open to our ideas. I have numerous pictures from the wedding day that I love and I also have the group pictures to cherish.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Carmel, it has been a pleasure working with you both :) You also showed Dave a new beach so he is delighted to have another amazing spot in kerry to escape to now and again lol! :) x

We are really pleased that we chose Tara and Dave to photograph our wedding day, they captured so many wonderful images of us celebrating and enjoying our day with family and friends, and they were both fun, enthusiastic and professional throughout the day. They are a great team and work together well to get really beautiful shots and to keep the happy couple at ease! Their customer service is excellent, we made a number of specific requests before, during and after our wedding which they have always been happy to accommodate. We are grateful for all the hard work they have put into our wedding, and for giving us so many truly special photos that we will cherish.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Stephen and Jessica! We loved working with you and your families in the beautiful setting of Cromane! Thank you also for commenting on our customer service as we regard that as a top priority in our business and are delighted that we could accomodate. We look forward to meeting you both again the next time you come to Kerry. Thank you again for such a fabulous day! x

I could not speak highly enough about this fabulous couple. They made us feel at ease, they were extremely discreet during the day and the finished product was just beautiful. I would highly recommend them as I have been since our wedding. Tara and Dave captured every moment of our big day without us even noticing. They are highly professional, dedicated, extremely talented and it's very clear that they love what they do. They went above and beyond. The ulitmate photography dream team! Thank you Tara and Dave.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Marian, thank you so much! I am lost for words (which doesn't happen too often lol!). I loved the little extra touches throughout your day, your gifts to each other brought tears to my eyes in the morning. The time and effort you put in to your day and the love you both have for each other shone throughout. We wish you both every happiness and I am sure we will be keeping in touch! Thank you again, Tara & Dave x

Tara and Dave are wonderful wedding photographers, and I would hire them 1000x over again based on the incredible work they did for our wedding. Our photographs came back spectacular, and exceeded our expectations. We have a wealth of beautiful photographs that range from intimate moments to candid moments to posed family photos - in both classic and modern types. They just did an outstanding job. Additionally, they were an absolute pleasure to work with! Very kind, thoughtful, reliable and proactive. Added bonus - Tara donated her lip gloss to me when I fell in love with the color on our wedding day. She just went above and beyond and although it was small, the gesture meant so much. Loved working with these two and would absolutely book them for any/all special events in the future!
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Georgie and Brian! :) We wish you every happiness in your married life and look forward to meeting again for another event in the future!!! (We are also happy to pack our bags and come to New York if needed!!!) :) :) :) :) xxxx

Tara and Dave were fantastic throughout planning our wedding and on the day itself. They are, first and foremost, extremely talented and professional. As a bonus, they are great fun to be around and completely put us at our ease. Tara and Dave captured fabulous photos both of our engagement shoot and our wedding day. We could not be happier with our photos and love every single one of them. No little detail - of which there were many - went unnoticed to Tara and Dave. We were touched by their attention to all the little moments. Their photos perfectly conveyed all the emotions a wedding brings, while our shots as bride and groom are elegant and beautiful.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Wow thank you for such lovely comments! Your wedding was beautiful! You picked a fantastic venue (Ballyseede Castle) and it was simply magical. We wish you a very happy life together xxx

2nd Jul 2016
My husband and I hired Tara and her husband to photograph our wedding. We were planning everything from overseas, and so I did a lot of research and hired them based on good reviews and how much we liked their style. It was a bit of a leap of faith since we could not meet beforehand. It turns out to have been a fantastic decision. Not only were they professional, flexible, and accommodating, but they were absolutely fantastic to work with on the day. They provided a calm and unobtrusive presence, and were like ninjas, getting shots I didn't even realize they were taking. Their experience was also an asset as they helped everything run smoothly and kept us on schedule without ever having us feel rushed. They also make a great team working together, as well as with the videographer we hired. We recently got our pictures back and they are just gorgeous. They really capture the feel of our day, both the big moments and the intimate ones. In short, my husband and I could not be happier with our choice and highly recommend them.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
I just saw this! Thank you SO much Lauren! I think my favourite photos from your day were of you and your mum in the morning. I had tears in my eyes capturing the lovely moments between you! We bumped into a friend of yours at a recent wedding and were asking about you both. Hope to see you again when you are back in Ireland! x

Tara and Dave are fantastic! My wife spent quite some time researching photographers in the area and as a photographer herself she enjoyed what Tara's work looked like so far. After meeting Tara and Dave we were very comfortable with their company and the brainstorming of picture ideas that followed. Since my wife loves animals and they live by farms they invited us to Firies for coffee and some very fun pre wedding day pictures in the country side with cats, hens, bees, cows, fields, the trunk of a jeep and so much more! The day of the wedding they were very professional at gathering everyone together, grabbing our attention and telling us where we needed to be all the while making us feel relaxed and having fun where otherwise we might be stressed. Some lovely photos were taken as well as some really funny and awesome pics that they have shared on Facebook since! My wife and I are delighted to have chosen Tara and Dave as our photographers and look forward to how the rest of the pictures come out. Love you guys!!

Your pictures are making their way to you very soon!!! We hope to see you in California next year when we add America to the list of road trips and wedding destinations! :) x

If you are looking for a fun yet highly professional pair of photographers look no further than Tara and Dave. They are amazing. We got married last week in Sneem and I always imagined that I would be feel uncomfortable, being followed around all day with someone with a camera but this was so not the case! I had witnessed other photographers at weddings forcing people into awkward poses ect. but not with these two! I really enjoyed their company and feel like we have made new friends in Tara & Dave. I cannot praise them enough and have no hesistation in recommending them to any couple looking for a wedding photographer. Thanks for everything guys x
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Hi Karen, you have definitely made new friends :) Your wedding was a nice highlight of christmas! It was a challenge to get there as we had to make a trek through the flooding and Storm Frank but it was all worth it! A fantastic priest who made everyone enjoy the ceremony, followed by chocolate crepes (yum!), hot whiskeys to warm everyone up and non stop smiles. You were all a pleasure to work with! :) Catch up with you again soon! x

Tara and Dave did an unbelievable job capturing our day perfectly.They had to deal with the worst weather but like complete professionals improvised to make sure we had some special shots, not every photographer would stand out in lashing rain so they could get a photo of their couple in the rain. They were so attentive and nothing was a problem. They made us feel completely at ease and comfortable from the get go and it felt like we knew them years at our wedding. All the bridal party and guests commented on how good they were and also great craic. The photos speak for themselves they are amazing and very unique!!! We are so happy with them. I would highly recommend Tara and Dave for your wedding they are brilliant photographers and a great couple to have around. Thanks again guys :) x
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Helen thank you for such a lovely review! :) Storm Frank was memorable! You definitely won't forget the weather on your wedding day! Thank you both for being such great sports. I could not believe you were both crazier than me wanting to go out in the storm for photographs but it was a lot of fun!!! :) We look forward to catching up with you both again soon! xxx

I do not consider myself a very photogenic person, and I am not one for public displays of affection (what we call "PDA" in the States) because being gay in the States is not as celebrated as it is elsewhere. I sincerely appreciate Tara and Dave meeting with the two of us the day before our ceremony and actually asking what we were comfortable with and what we weren't, and that conversation put me at immediate ease with the process as a whole. I was very comfortable with the photo shoots and the process being very natural and at-ease for someone who is naturally discreet, like me. The pictures turned out beautiful and the entire event was as natural and relaxed as it could possibly be. It also didn't hurt that Dave and I share the same sense of humor. Relaxed, funny, natural, artistic and overall an absolute pleasurable experience made possibly by Tara and Dave.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Matthew :) It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your day. We look forward to meeting you again when you come back to Ireland and dinner is on us this time!!! x

Tara and Dave were such a special presence on our wedding day. As a bride, I found Tara's gentle manner, practical support and enthusiasm so helpful and life-saving. I was stunned by the way she made me laugh and feel beautiful when I was pretty stressed and nervous. She got a long so well with all my bridesmaids and family which really put me at ease. I felt that everyone was so comfortable with both Dave and Tara, which was probably related to them taking the time to come and meet the bridal party and family etc, before the wedding day - at things like our rehearsal. I loved the photos and feel that they really portray the love and joy that was present on the wedding day - even capturing some of the unexpected and funny moments of the day that were not planned at all. I feel that their photos reflect an Tara's understanding of what really matters to me and my husband - the people, the promises and the laughter that filled our wedding.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Hannah and Blair, your wedding was amazing! Such lovely people, fabulous weather and the stunning backdrop of Sydney Harbour Bridge for your ceremony was just WOW! I am so happy that we could be there to get to know you and your amazing friends and family and capture those special moments for you. You really are the perfect couple. Hopefully we get another excuse to travel to Australia again and see you all again in the not too distant future! xxx

Tara is an amazing photographer and along with her husband dave they make a brilliant team, Tara will go out of her way to make everything relaxed for you and fit into your wedding, she's brilliant at her job, I can honestly say we couldn't have picked a better photographer to be part of our wedding.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you Sharon :) It was a brilliant day from start to finish! Thank you for braving the cold on the beach it was definitely worth it! Hope you love your feature in Brides of Kerry! xxx

Tara & Dave were wonderful from start to finish. They made our whole wedding party feel so relaxed and as a result of their skill, professionalism and dedication we have the most amazing photographs of our wedding that we will cherish forever. Without question I would highly recommend Tara Donoghue Photography as your wedding photographers and above all else they are a truly nice couple to have as part of your day x
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Nicola and Patrick, it was an absolute joy to get to know you and your families over the past year. To see all the planning and intricate details come together was fantastic. We can't wait to get working on your album in the new year and to see your wedding featured in a certain fab magazine! xxxx

Tara was great, she arranged to do a pre wedding shoot when we were back in Ireland. She was very flexible and kept in touch all the time. On the wedding day she was so relaxed which made everyone feel calm even tho we were behind n time, she took the time to meet my family and my husbands family which meant alot to us. On the day of the wedding her partner also went to The Carlton so he could get some pictures of the Groom and his party getting ready. All day they took there time to arrange full family pictures and stayed till after our first dance.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Sinead. There is always time for a coffee and a chat :) Your families were fantastic and made us both so welcome, (Dave even went for a game of golf with your dad before he left to fly home!). Let us know when you are back in Ireland again and we can hear about where you went on honeymoon. Enjoy your first christmas as Mr & Mrs and keep in touch :) xxxxx

Tara and Dave are absolutely amazing. From the very start they put us right at ease. We did an engagement shoot which really helped settle any nerves. They were able to provide the right amount of direction. On the morning of the wedding they fitted in perfectly and added to the excitement. In the church they were so discreet and yet managed to capture fabulous shoots. We really enjoyed doing our photos after the wedding, it was so much fun. I can't recommend Tara and Dave enough.
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Christine and Liam thank you so much! What an amazing day you had this summer! Sneem church was the perfect setting, (I love the shots of you at the door showing off that fabulous dress!!!). I don't think I will ever forget our trip to Parknasilla where you took a dip in the sea, definitely a first for me to see that done on the wedding day!!! :) We had such great fun with you both and it really shows in the photographs. Thank you for trusting us to do what we love and we are delighted that you enjoyed it as much as we did! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, keep in touch! xxxx

Tara and Dave were amazing !! They felt more like one of the guest then any normal photographer, we wanted a very relaxed feel to our wedding and not someone lurking in the background taking pictures. They really got involved with our guests and made them feel very at ease. As for the pictures I couldn't have been happier with the results, this is the one day of your life were you want to look, feel amazing and you want your pictures to capture that which Tara and Dave really did. They couldn't have done any more to make myself my husband and all of the guest feel comfortable. We were all worried my father was not going to make it on time due to flying from London later then expected due to my brother being in hospital, it was extremely stressful for me already not having my brother but worrying about my dad also but Tara made me feel so relaxed and helped me to enjoy our special day and cherish every moment and for that I am forever thankful. They both made a great effort to get to know everyone and really get involved with the wedding. They are both so talented and thought up some very memorable photos that myself and Gearoid will cherish forever. Thank you so much Tara and Dave your amazing !!!!! (and so are your photos). x
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you both :) I have a picture of Dave and myself hitting the dance floor after we finished, photographed by you in my office. That sums up your day for me! Fun, Fun, Fun!!!! What a fantastic couple who really let us push our creativity. From standing in the pouring rain so we could shoot some night shots and braving the cold on the beach to get some fun shots with your bridal party. You guys were a pleasure to work with! Let us know when you are back in Ireland again and we can catch up. Wishing you both a very happy first xmas as Mr & Mrs! :) xxxx

From the moment we met Tara and Dave we were instantly thrilled with our decision. They are professional yet flexible, great fun to be around yet still manage to capture fantastic memories which will last a life time.

Thank you Vicki :) We loved your wedding in the beautiful St Finbar's Cathedral and the Castlemartyr resort. Every single detail was thought of and it made for some fantastic photo opportunities! We look forward to working with you and your family again soon! xxx

We chose Tara and Dave as they had done a family wedding and we loved how they just blend into the background, no pressure and make you feel comfortable. They are a great team, very friendly and most of all fun. Our pictures are amazing, way past our expectations, its extremely hard to pick photos for the album we just want them all. Would highly recommend them, thank you for capturing our wedding day Grainne & Maurice X
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Grainne and Maurice, It was a pleasure working with you and your families. We really did have so much fun! :) What a fantastic bunch of men and ladies you had by your side. A wedding day is so much more than just the day and working with you both before, during and after makes this "job" something very special. We look forward to working with you again soon! xxx

Planning a wedding from the states could have been a challenge but Tara made it so easy. She Skyped with us to plan and made us feel comfortable with everything (hard to do for those who don't really like pictures of themselves). She allowed us to be ourselves on the day, avoiding awkward poses and instead captured our best candid moments. We were so lucky to find Tara (and her assistant and husband Dave!)
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Kim, your wedding was such an amazing way to start the year! The rain poured and you grabbed your wellies and umbrella and loved the fact that it was traditional Irish weather and that it was definitely not going to spoil your day! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to show what fun you can have in the rain and what great images we got as a result! We have been asked over and over to recreate the sparklers shots that we did with you for other couples. Thank you again it really was a magical day xxxx

I was part of my Uncles wedding and Tara and her husband were outstanding! With all the excitement and the crowd at the wedding Tara and her husband had worked really hard and went out of their way to do everything they could for us! The pictures that Tara had taken are beautiful and I would reccomend you to book this couple as they are very helpful and funny!! Well done Tara! X
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you so much Danielle :) We loved working on such a special wedding as people had travelled from all over to come to Killarney. The only thing we couldn't fix was the weather! :) Keep in touch! Tara x
Review by Siobhain and Matt Colbourne
Tara was the photographer at our wedding last yr, from our first meeting i knew Tara would be playing a great part in our day. Living in Australia it was extra hard picking people to make our day perfect however she instantly put us both at ease. Our pre wedding shoot and our actual wedding day weather wise couldn't have been any more different but one thing remained the same - was how relaxed we felt. A lot of photographers we spoke with had very set ideas but Tara and Dave make you feel part of the team and actually listen to what their couples are looking for - because all couples are looking for something unique to them and that was important to us, trying to capture our personalities as well as the wedding. Our album arrived recently and to say we love it would be an understatement. We are back in Ireland towards the end of the yr and cannot wait for Tara to capture the next chapter in our lives. (ps Dave's pretty awesome to!)
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
As I read through these reviews I am honoured to say that our "clients" have since become our friends. We feel a wedding is so much more than just one day and to be with you from the planning stages (even via email and Skype), to be witness to your two families joining and to have since photographed your beautiful daughter (and many of your friend's weddings!) it is so much more than a job it is an absolute privilege. Thank you for trusting us with capturing such special moments for you both. I often tell the story of when I had to stall you and detour to the beach for photos (after checking in with Dave who was with Matt) as the boys were in no rush to get to the church and we couldn't have the bride arriving before the groom! :) I now understand the laid back Australian approach and completely admire it! :) Thank you again, I look forward to the next photographic opportunity we will have together..... xxx

Superb. Such a lovely, unassuming photographer. Made us so calm on the morning of the wedding. Thanks for everything Tara. xx

Review by Caroline and Alan O'Donoghue
I can remember when I first met Tara and I knew straight away that she was was going to be our wedding photographer. She was so enthusiastic and her portfolio was really impressive! I spent the preparations of the wedding running on top of my head but Tara made that part easy. She read me like a book and knew what I wanted. I am so conscious about my weight and not a fan of photos and I was able to say this to Tara and she completely understood. Tara and Dave were so professional on the day, I hardly knew they were there! Even with the inclement weather conditions that made it challenging, the photos turned out amazing. You made my little girl look like an angel and captured myself and Alan's happiness that day. All I can say is thank you Tara, I'll be back for a few family portraits soon! X
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
It is definitely a common thread that Kerry weddings aren't usually the best for the weather! But as I always recommend throw on the wellies and have some fun and we definitely did that!!!! :) Oh and your idea of stopping off en route to the hotel for chocolate pancakes was brill!!! :) I have to go back there some day soon! :) I think we are well overdue a coffee and a catch up soon with your beautiful family. xxxx
Review by Kristine and Micheal Brosnan
Myself and Michael can't thank Tara and David enough, we had our wedding the 31 st of December 2013 what a day we had with them! We felt so relaxed they went above and beyond our expectations I don't think I have laughed so much!!! We highly recommend them both what a team they made... They even managed to keep our twins quiet and entertained for every photo..there's not enough words I can use to describe how professional , friendly and how relaxed we were.. So thank you guys xxxxx
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Thank you both, you made us feel so at home (I remember Dave talking about the fry up in the morning lol) it was a joy to work with you all. If we didn't have another wedding the following day we would have definitely been joining you on the dance floor for a few songs!!! :) Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness xxxxxx
Review by Aoife, Brendan & Katie Whelan
From our first meeting with Tara we knew she was "the one". Warm and welcoming, she was always at the end of the phone and nothing was too big of an ask. Tara is lively fun and energetic and her fantastic work reflects these great qualities immensely. We were completely at ease the day of our wedding, Tara and Dave blended perfectly, never in your face like I have heard of many photographers. There was no rushing, we were as relaxed as if it were any normal day. It's fantastic to have a photographer who will listen to what you want, your ideas for your big day and improve on them with her suggestions, there is a lot to be said for the expert eye of Tara. We can honestly, hand on heart, say that we have found our family photographer and can't wait for our next celebration so Tara can capture our precious memories. We are so so looking forward to getting our wedding pictures back, we have every confidence they will be amazing and if our pre-wedding shoot is anything to go by we will be lucky to have any wall space left! Tara and Dave, we are privileged and honoured to have got to know you and to have had ye as our photographers. Thank you, thank you, thank you xxx
Response from Tara Donoghue Photography
Aoife, Brendan and Katie, you are absolute legends! :) I have never met a couple that took on the weather and challenges thrown at you like you guys did! It poured and poured and poured some more but you threw on the wellies, reversed huge trucks up tiny tracks all for the sake of getting the images that you wanted to tell your day exactly as it was. I have complete admiration and respect for you and think that any couple planning a December wedding in Ireland should take an ounce of inspiration from you both. If it rains so what! Lets get out and have some fun and make some memories!!! :) We can't wait to catch up with you all again soon, Happy anniversary! xxxxx
