Hi my name is Dave and I’m an Irish wedding photographer.  Originally from Westmeath, I cover all of Ireland. From Dublin to Galway & Cork to Donegal.

I absolutely love photography and always strive to be the best wedding photographer that I can be.

I approach a wedding day with the mindset of a documentary photographer. I let the magical moments play out, observing everyone's emotions whilst staying relaxed and unobtrusive.

I love to document moments between couples. No two weddings are the same and that makes it an honor to have the trust of a couple to capture their big day. Not only do I get to witness an amazing and individual experience. But I get to document your wedding and capture memories that don’t fade over time. I find it extremely rewarding to create photographs of your wedding day that look & feel timeless, wondrous and special. The tears, the laughter, the love. I see it all, and I capture it all in my own creative way.

My motto is simple, “Capturing moments - Creating memories”.
It sums up nicely what I have been striving to accomplish with my photography and helps remind me what is important every time I take a photo.

Your moments...

I capture all the moments on your wedding day, after all, every moment is a memory that deserves to be captured. Some have tears, some have laughter, but all of the moments are yours and can be looked back on long after the cake has been eaten.

I approach my wedding photography with the mindset of a documentary photographer. So rest assured that I will be letting the natural flow of events play out, all while capturing moments from a perspective that wants to create something beautiful and wondrous.

The quality of Dave’s photographs is excellent. I have a keen interest in photography myself so spent a lot of time looking at different people and different styles and was really happy to come across Primalux. Dave (and his assistant) were very friendly and professional.

He was ready at hand for all the key moments (even if we weren’t on time!). Nothing was an issue and he made the formal portraits very relaxed and easy. Besides those times you wouldn’t even know he was there as he was very unobtrusive but always in the positions he needed to be without disturbing anyone. Dave stayed a long time throughout the day and made sure we were satisfied that we’d captured everything we wanted.

After the day itself he kept in contact and sent us a preview within a week which was brilliant. We had our full set of photos finished within another 3 weeks which was so quick, and all beautifully presented and organised through the personalised link on the website.

We’re blown away by the finished product, so many beautiful and fun moments. Considering all this, the package we got was really great value and we’d happily recommend Dave to anyone for their big day.

Timeless memories...

Although I work in an unobtrusive manner and will capture loads of great candid moments, I do take other photos that are just as important.
The preparations (getting ready before the ceremony), the settings (rooms, venues), the small details (rings, flowers, close-ups of beautiful details on your dress). These all add to the story of your wedding, which is unique for every couple. They give context and meaning to all the little things and create rich timeless memories that reflect the importance of your big day.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos on our wedding. They truly look like a fairytale 😍
I would recommend everyone to do the ‘first look photography’ - It really was a beautiful moment! ❤️
We are so lucky to have these photographs to help us remember our amazing day!
We wish you all the best!

We are super happy that we chose Primalux Wedding Photographer to document our special day! Dave really knows what he’s doing and made us feel super comfortable, not only in front of the camera but also during the whole process. We can really recommend him and the pictures are just what we wanted - romantic, dreamy and absolutely magic!

Beautiful portraits...

I love taking portraits. But I do understand that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera. My aim is to make you both feel as comfortable and natural as possible. I’m there to help guide you to natural poses and moments that the two of your can enjoy together. The portraits should be fun and act as a little getaway that just the two of you can enjoy.
