Hello! My name is Tadhg. For over 10 years I have been delighted to work as a full-time wedding photographer. Photography for me is all about connection, presence, feelings, and memory. I believe human “connection”, and a sense of belonging is part of our deepest human desire. “Presence” to me means being there fully for you, bringing my eye, heart, and mind to every moment. “Feelings” is about paying attention and capturing the emotional moments and key events of the day. Finally, “memory” is the feelings that you will feel again when you see your natural wedding photos. This philosophy and my relaxed manner help me create reportage wedding photos that you will always treasure. I’ve been taking photographs since I was 9. As a boy, I took photos of my pet cat, nature, my friends, and time in the scouts. I’ve always loved the craft of it. I got to learn how to take photos fully manually. There were no digital screens to check. During school, my work experience was in a pro lab. I developed and printed commercial photography work. A few years after college, while I was working in the US in 1996, a friend took me to see a photography exhibition in New York City. The photographer was Henri Cartier Bresson. I was blown away by his photography and it rekindled in me my long-term desire to earn my living as a photographer. Before I made the leap to full time, professional photography, I was working as a manager in a tech company. I was fortunate to take a few courses at the Irish Management Institute related to people skills and emotional intelligence. These courses opened the new world of psychology to me and were life-changing. Little did I realise at the time how important people skills are in getting natural wedding photographs of people! In late 2007, there was a big change in my life circumstances. The short story is I found myself juggling a very demanding management role and spending considerable time minding my 4-year-old daughter. I took time out from all the noise to reflect and I decided family comes first, and also, to go full time with my photography. Working from home meant I could be there before and after school and have more harmony in my work and home life. Since those early days, I’ve concentrated on developing my ability to shoot weddings without interfering with the natural flow of the day. Robert Capa (founder of Magnum photo agency with Henri Cartier Bresson) said’ “if your photos aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough”. Close enough means physically close as well as emotionally close. I believe the only way to get natural wedding photos is for the people being photographed to feel comfortable being themselves in front of the camera. No techniques to create the same photos at every wedding. Real and natural photos that capture real moments will always resonate more personally. I love connecting with engaged couples, gaining their trust, and photographing their wedding days, capturing images that will always connect them to their deepest bliss. Connection is the only way that natural and real style photos can be captured. My philosophy in life is harmony. Harmony in my work, my relationships, hobbies, and spiritual side. The presence that arises from this is what I bring to all my weddings. [County Kildare Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Annie and I'm a hopeless romantic! I've loved weddings all my life and been obsessed with them since I planned my own (to Mr. Kheffache, by the way, my maiden name is far less exotic!). I've also loved photography all my life so I'm doing my dream job. I used to be a lawyer with a photography dream until one day I took the plunge, gave up law and started living the dream of being a documentary wedding photographer in Ireland.

I have been a professional wedding photographer since 2009, but I have had a lifelong interest in photography. I worked in a photo lab in the early 1980’s. My photography became more serious when children started arriving. I shot on film until the end of the 1990’s and then dabbled with digital photography until purchasing a digital SLR in 2004. I shoot digital images at weddings and most professional portrait sessions. Digital images make my workflow shorter. I do shoot film for my personal work and for some weddings. I grew up in Sligo and have lived in Dublin for most of my adult life. My partner Susan keeps me pointed in the right direction and has been a tremendous support in everything that I do. I have five wonderful, talented children. Two of them are still little guys and keep us very busy. Apart from all things photographic, I have an eclectic taste in music and enjoy movies. I am an electronics hacker/maker and a self-confessed computer geek. In a previous career, I worked with a number of multinational corporations. I have lived and worked in the US and spent extended periods working in Asia and across Europe. [Dublin Wedding Photographer]
I’m a wedding photographer based in Tipperary, Ireland. I photograph in a relaxed photo-documentary style mostly without being too obtrusive hopefully. I’m available for weddings and elopements all over Ireland. Being passionate about photography helps me capture the moments that matter to you, your family and your friends. I’m always looking for ways to improve my photography and myself. I feel we should try to remain open to ways of improving ourselves either through our work or on other aspects of our selves. I shoot using both natural ambient light and I also use flash when I feel the situation requires it, although when using flash I try not to make it seem apparent as this helps me maintain my own preferred style and feel for images that I like to produce. I’m available for weddings and elopements all over Ireland. I'm also available for destination weddings abroad. I work with couples from all backgrounds and cultures. Whatever your ethnicity or orientation is, is irrelevant, capturing genuine emotion and love between people is what’s more important to me. Outside of photography, my other interests are cooking, travel, keeping fit and the occasional Netflix binge. [Tipperary Wedding Photographer]
