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 also act as a destination photographer, bouncing between Ireland and Sweden. 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.
If you are planning your big day please check out my wedding guide. I update it regularly with helpful tips and advice based on real world experience shooting weddings.
The Wedding Guide - A Collection of advice, ideas & tips.
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 have a deeply creative heart, but 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.
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.
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.
I take pride in having a quick delivery time without compromising on quality. As a result I only take a set amount of bookings each year. I only have a few available dates in 2018, and my calendar for the 2019 wedding season is starting to fill up.

I cover all of Ireland and I don’t charge for travel expenses.
