Weddings in Ireland - Your Day - Your Way

The traditional Irish wedding is still very popular but by no means the only type of
wedding couples have these days. Couples are more confident in putting
their own stamp on their day to reflect their personalities and interests.
Be it big, small, lavish, sparse couple's can celebrate their wedding their way.

My approach to wedding photography takes this into account and is based on
a documentary style, resulting in timeless images of how your wedding actually was.

I have a keen eye for detail, capturing the smallest gestures, emotions and interactions
that make your wedding day truly special. And if couples like a little bit
of direction I am happy to step in. Whether it's a candid shot or a posed portrait,
each photograph reflects a real moment from your wedding day.

With lots of experience shooting weddings every situation brings a challenge
and that's why hiring a professional wedding photographer is so important in
getting it right on your wedding day

Couples often find it stressful planning their wedding.
You've probably never done it before so there is a lot of unknowns. Let me help.
I've been at hundreds of weddings.

After the date is set and the venue is booked the photographer is usually next on the list.
If you want suggestions for other suppliers i am happy to recommend some great people
I have worked with over the years  from Videographers, to celebrants,
to ceremony singers, bands and many more

My approach to wedding photography is characterized by a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques, resulting in timeless and breathtaking images.Unique Style and ApproachMy approach to wedding photography is characterized by a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques, resulting in timeless and breathtaking images.

Wedding Photography Ireland Pricing

I understand every couple is unique and their wedding photography needs may vary

To accommodate different preferences and budgets I have put together a range 
of tailored packages. These can be customised and adapted to each couples needs.
Nothing is set in stone so please ask if something doesn't quite fit for you.

Different locations, themes, getting ready at home, at the venue, church wedding
civil ceremony, location for photos it's all included

Now, looking for a wedding photographers prices on their website
is like trying to find the holy grail
Well not here

Personally I hate having to wrestle a price out of a salesperson.
They do it to make you contact them.
I prefer making up my own mind and then getting in touch

You have probably read that couples typically spend
between €2,000 - €4,000 on wedding photography
This is not true

These figures are based on surveys of couples on wedding suppliers websites
that typically are having larger budgets and spending more on everything.
Think of it as going into a Prada store and surveying the customers
of how much they spend on a dress

So don't be thinking you have to pay up to €4,000 to get great wedding photos

Professionalism and Experience

When you pick a wedding photographer personally
I think there is two things to look for. Firstly is their experience and
secondly do you get on with them. You need both to be good.

Your wedding is going to be an amazing day and your photographer
will be close by most of the time capturing the powerful, intimate and
memorable moments of your life

As I work in a documentary style most of the time you won't even
know I'm there. You'll get to spend the time with your family and friends.
And when it comes to doing the family formals I will have them
arranged efficiently and get you back to the party

For the couple photos I am happy to step in and give you a bit
of guidance if needs be. Before the wedding we would discuss how
much interaction you would like on the day

A Little About Me

Simon PeareYep that's meon the left

So what do you get if you hire me as your wedding photographer?

Well like most people I prefer being behind the camera and not in front of it :)
On a wedding day I like to blend in as much as possible. I won't ever ask for a fake laugh or smile
I like to capture you as you really are

Born and raised in Dublin, photography and music were my two passions.
Up until about 10 years I worked in the music business before deciding
on becoming a professional photographer and never looked back

I started with a local newspaper that would send me to every type of event imaginable
before starting to do weddings and private and corporate events

When I not taking photos you are likely to find me playing or listening to music.
Apart from that I am happier with a pint of Guinness and a toasted sandwich
and I prefer cooking to a fancy restaurant.

Good coffee, no milk, no sugar. Good friends
Good conversation and good craic

It takes a lot for me to get stressed so I like to be a calming
presence in stressful situations. I have a very thick skin so say
anything to me I won't mind

I love traveling to new and old places
London and Nerja are two places you'll often find me
once I can find a trusty cat sitter

New places to discover (and photograph) and old places to relax

(Fine art prints from home and away available at

But basically I'll do anything to get a good photo
Just ask Chillii above :)
