      Are you available for my date?

      Hopefully! Contact Us to find out 🙂 I’ll be able to send you through a link to a detailed pricing sheet.

      Can you describe your style/approach on the day?

      Relaxed and simple. The majority of the day I will just be blending in and trying to capture all of the special moments that happen. I try to keep direction and posing to a minimum to allow you to enjoy and actually experience your day. Of course I’m happy to take the formal family group shots too, I like to keep these simple to allow for more time to devote time to you and also to make sure you have time to enjoy your reception too!

      Every wedding is different 🙂 I would typically take over 1500 shots at a wedding. I would then pick the very best for editing to present in your online gallery. Typically the number of final, fully edited shots would range between 400 and 600+ depending on the length of coverage etc.

      Do you charge for travel?

      A travel fee of €150 applies to all weddings booked from February 2017 onwards, that take place over 150km from Dublin which covers Diesel and Basic Accommodation if required.

      Can you travel outside Ireland for our wedding?

      Yes, let’s do it! I charge only for flights and 2 nights basic accommodation. Dependent on availability.

      Are you insured?

      Yep, fully insured -Public Liability & Professional Indemnity

      Do you have back-up equipment on the day?

      Absolutely, I always have backup equipment (cameras/lenses/flash etc) in the event of anything blowing up or falling in the water! I also shoot on two memory cards simultaneously at all times to minimise chance of losing any images.

      Do you use a second photographer?

      All standard packages include one photographer – John. A second photographer add-on is available for an additional charge.

      A second shooter is a great choice for getting coverage of both the groom and bride getting ready, extra reception shot and just an overall superior selection of final shots. Please contact us for the full pricing sheet

      Are Engagement Shoots available?

      Yes absolutely! Engagement shoots are a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera ahead of your big day, while also coming away with a beautiful set of romantic images to cherish. These can even be used for a signing board for your wedding! Contact us for further details. Please note – Engagement Shoots to take place in Dublin or Surrounding Areas. Engagement Shoots outside Dublin subject to Travel Fee.

      Are the packages negotiable?

      No, sorry! It’s very important to us that every couple get the same quote in the interest of fairness so we don’t haggle. Of course we can tailor certain packages for certain events (such as small civil ceremonies where only 4 hours of coverage is required etc)

      Do you require a booking deposit?

      Yes, a booking deposit of €400 is required to secure your date. Payable by Bank Transfer/Online Payment/Paypal/Cheque


      Will our photos end up on your blog or social media?

      We love to proudly show off our latest work on our Blog, Facebook, Instagram etc etc. However we only do this with permission! We will normally check during the pre-wedding consult what level of sharing is ok. In cases where a couple request complete anonymity we always completely respect this and will not share. We will always ask though 🙂 Please note that we cannot blog every wedding.

      How long will it take to get my Digital Images and how are they presented?

      Usually your images will be ready anywhere between 4 and 8 weeks, depending on the season etc. The images will be presented on a password protected online gallery. From here you will be able to download in multiple resolutions (from huge unwatermarked images for printing to small low-res watermarked images for Facebook etc) and you can even order prints/framed prints/canvas etc right from your gallery.  Depending on package selected you will also receive your images on USB.

      Can I customise my package further?

      For sure. While the main upgrades are  Second Shooter or Extended Coverage, there are a variety of a la carte options and upgrades available – from album upgrades (genuine Italian leather covers, Fine Art paper) to parent books, thank you cards, signing boards, framed prints, etc. There are no hidden costs in the main packages and these are all very much optional extras.

      We want to book you – what happens next?


      Once you let me know I can  issue you a booking link that contains your contract, quote, info form & a link to pay your non-refundable booking fee of €400 online or via Bank Transfer. Once the deposit it paid and the contract is signed – you’re all set!
