Capturing Your Wedding Day in a Natural Relaxed Documentary Style
Your wedding will be one of the best day's of your life. So much will happen and you will want to enjoy as much of it as possible
Most couples don't like being in the spotlight and having their photograph taken.
I totally understand, neither do I.
My style of photography is about capturing real moments on your wedding day. Documentary Style Wedding Photography. So you don't have to worry about posing and how to look. I capture natural moments and if you want a little direction I'm happy to step in and provide guidance.
YOUR WEDDING IS YOUR SPECIAL DAY, NOT THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S PHOTO SHOOT.
We have all been at the wedding where the photographer is bossy and staging everything and taking forever to get the shot.
You don't have to do that!
YOUR WEDDING WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE.
I’M THERE TO CAPTURE IT FOR YOU WHILE YOU ENJOY IT

As a wedding photographer you get the privilege to visit the most beautiful parts of Ireland and some of it's most amazing venues.

Weddings are often in venues that are challenging for photography. That is why you need an experienced photographer that won't be phased by this and will be able to get the best images out of any situation.

Looking for wedding photographer's prices sometimes can feel like searching for the holy grail. Very few put them on their website. Personally I hate looking at something and having to wrestle out of the salesperson what does it cost. Not here.
You have probably read that couples on average pay between €2,000 and €4,000 for their wedding photography. This is based on a website survey where couples typically have larger weddings with bigger budgets and could involve 2 photographers and an album and video clips bundled in. It doesn't include all the couples that get married in the Registry Office and have a meal with their families after and maybe a few photos. So don't be thinking you have to pay up to €4,000 for great wedding photos.
My packages start at €999 for the Essential parts of the day which is from the ceremony until sitting down for dinner. From there you can add on the prep for a half day package for €1249, and a full day package up until the dancing for €1599. It's totally up to you. A fantastic wedding album can also be added to any package from €325.
All packages include the images provided edited and in high resolution and an online gallery with a 12 month backup guarantee and a sneak preview within a few days. The full gallery delivered no more than eight weeks after the wedding. A full day would usually end up being a final gallery of 500 - 600 images.

"From the beginning, Simon was very professional. He suggested some options of nearby places between the registry office and our venue where we could take our wedding pictures. His experience was very welcomed. On the day he guided me in a very soft manner for a few pics just before the wedding itself. After that, we did not notice his presence anymore. Then he managed to capture moments with our friends and family without us noticing resulting in incredibly natural photos. We are delighted with the result"
