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've been taking photos since I've been a kid and my first real accolade came from my secondary school's annual photography competition for a photo of my pet dog (Dougal). That was on an old Pentax film camera and I've since moved onto digital cameras and shot my first wedding in 2015 with my wife, Annie (also a WPJA member and documentary wedding photographer) and now, over 100 weddings later, I've found my niche in wedding photojournalism. The challenge of capturing the emotion and individuality of the day, without interfering in the flow, makes each wedding I shoot a completely different experience and I love it for that.

Limerick documentary wedding photography by Jamie Gillies - Munster and Ireland Pro

-A wedding photographer who loves the reportage-style. -I will happily travel to photograph for you, in fact, the more adventurous the location, the more I’m up for it! -I recently moved from my home of 30+ years in Kent and now find myself in county Limerick, Ireland! -Normally people say they love things, but I’m going to say I just really like traveling, hiking, football, and photography. -Recently joined a band as the bassist.

Leinster and County Meath wedding and elopement photography by Peter Rowen of Ireland

I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in County Meath. I started shooting weddings 18 years ago and I absolutely love it. My work has taken me to some really amazing places over the years both in Ireland and abroad. I’ve picked up a bunch of awards along the way including two recent ones from the US-based Wedding Photojournalist Association. My aim when I shoot a wedding is to observe and capture the day as it naturally unfolds. I don’t direct anything. This allows everyone to relax and just enjoy the moment. I love to tell the story of the day, to capture the true atmosphere so that when you look back at my pictures you’ll not only remember how it looked but how it felt. A little about myself… I live just 20 km outside Dublin City in the countryside of County Meath with my wife Natalia and my 5-year-old son Zac. In my spare time, I love to mountain bike, snowboard, and ride my motorcycle. [County Meath Wedding Photographer]

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]

Munster and Tipperary wedding photography and elopements by Enda Guerin of Ireland

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]

Photography is an extension of who I am. Since a very young age, I’ve been capturing life on film and my passion has only grown since. Creativity is vital to me. Welcoming a unique perspective with every shoot, I put so much passion into everything I do. This is more than art to me, it’s a life. And I love every second of it. My absolute love for beauty, sentiment, and emotion is revealed in every photograph that I take. I love to embrace the simplicity of life, the most profound yet forgotten elements of our lives, and capture them so they can be remembered for years. My focus is on making the ordinary extraodinary. Because that’s exactly how life is, right? As much as I love photography, it’s not the focal point of my life. That space is reserved for my family. My entire world has been changed since marrying the love of my life and becoming a father. Honestly, I couldn’t ask for anything better. When I’m not behind a camera, I’m taking snapshots in my mind as I cherish every moment with my beautiful family. I never want to take a single laugh or tear for granted. Ever. Life is important to me. Really living life. And that’s why I love what I do. Working throughout Ireland, I am passionate about making wedding days special from the ambience to the timeless images you walk away with. When I stare through that lens it’s more than job. My focus is on relationships and emotions—something I am so intrigued by. With a fun, relaxed, artistic, and innovative approach, I’ve created a style that will truly highlight the most subtle and beautiful parts of your big day. From emotion and light to colour and overall vision, it’s my job to tell a story through my lens. And your romance is my story. [Dublin Wedding Photographer]

My career in photography started just 5 years ago, but my photography journey goes back about 12 years to my Art school days in Waterford IT on the south coast of Ireland. Later I completed a Masters in Photography in Dublin. I photographed my first wedding in 2015, & haven't really looked back. I can't say that I wanted to become a wedding photographer but once I had photographed a few, I began to realise that not only could I make a living doing it, it was actually quite fulfilling and rewarding, providing I could work in my own documentary style. As of early 2020, I've photographed over 200 weddings in Ireland (& one in France). Outside of wedding photography, I spend a lot of time working on my street photography both at home & abroad. Wedding photography has allowed me the breathing room to explore other areas of photography & I hope to begin work on some documentary projects in the coming year.

Occitanie and Tarn wedding photography by Loic Bourniquel of France

Hi, I'm Loïc Bourniquel from the south of France. I've been a wedding photographer for 5 years. I did communication studies then I started to travel the world: England, Slovakia, Poland, and Canada. I used to have different jobs in each country in order to make friends and understand the way of life in each place. For most, I discovered photography during my travels so I started exploring this side of my creativity. Then I moved back to the south of France and became a manager in an Irish pub for 8 years. It was a great experience as well, organize concerts, and different kinds of events, meet people, create a good atmosphere with the staff and our clients ... After that I wanted to make my passion a job, so I became a pro photographer. In the beginning, I wasn't really interested in the wedding because of the traditional images I had in my mind, but I tried and I found a totally different experience than I expected. A much better one. Photographing emotions, funny moment,s or strong ones. Photographing humanity with total freedom and make great and original pictures was a total privilege. Now I m a wedding photographer but I do a bit of portraits and street photography for myself. I would say that my style is photojournalist/storyteller. But I still do a few nice portraits for couples. I m not only a photographer I'm also a wedding helper. I always do my best for the couples to make sure they have a great and memorable wedding. I capture relationships, small and big moments, emotions, love, and everything I find interesting. I have a lot of wittiness I love funny moment or scene. Hope I'll meet you soon Regards Loïc [Tarn Wedding Photographer]

Lancashire wedding reportage photography by Steven Rooney of England, United Kingdom

I was born in Scotland but have lived in England most of my life, and I’ve been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I trained and worked as a primary school teacher before working in FE and eventually made my way to where I am now, using my camera to pay the bills full time. I live in the North West of England with my wife Sally and our 3 children who are our pride and joy. Sally and I run the business together. Well, Sally runs it, I take the pictures. We pride ourselves in looking after our clients throughout the whole process and exceeding expectations. Sally also runs our sister company Smileomatic Photobooths which won the best wedding special touch (North West) at the 2018 Wedding Industry Awards. I’m passionate about making people happy through my photography. I’ve loved weddings ever since I started shooting them some 12 years ago because each and every wedding I shoot is unique. Not because of the flowers, the table decorations or the venues, but because of the people involved. The characters in a story that has yet to be written. Over the years I’ve come to realise that the images that are most important to people are those which can really rekindle feelings and emotions. And this applies to all photos, not just wedding photography. It’s my own experiences in life up to this point that makes me release the shutter when I do. And why what’s important to you, will also be important to me. [Lancashire Wedding Photographer]

Lombardy and Varese wedding and elopement photography by Francesca Zambrini of Italy

Photographer and mother of two beautiful children, Leonardo and Emily. I love people and through the lens I try to grasp the essence and uniqueness of each subject. I consider myself very privileged to be able to capture moments in people’s lives and freeze them to last in time. After attending a year's photographic course in London I decided to stay for another 7 years in England, working and experimenting with my camera. I now live in Italy in a small city called Varese where I was born near the beautiful Italian lake district. Since 2008 I have been part of a team of photographers and video makers who help me developing all the time. Even now I am searching and learning! [Varese Wedding Photographer]

Born in France, grown between Portugal and Switzerland. As a kid I wanted to become an architect and as an architecture student I wanted to work somewhere in between architecture and photography. Near the end of the course I bought my first dSLR, and as a photo-amateur started shooting in the streets. I worked some time as an architect, then as an architectural photographer and later, by accident, I made my first wedding reportage. A year later I decided to give more attention to that empathy I felt with this area and, together with Raquel, my life companion, initiated "menino conhece menina" (in English it means BOY MEETS GIRL), a project over which we would shoot others boys and girls that love each other. Since then this work and this profession has been increasingly contagious and today we dedicate ourselves in full time to observe the happy lives that seek for our photos. As a wedding photographer I found my expression in the emotions of the people I photograph, looking for an approach emotionally genuine and documental. [Porto Wedding Photographer]

Photo of Scotland wedding and elopement photographer Lukas Powroziewicz

Welcome to Catching the Moments Photography. My name is Lukas. I describe my style in three words I would say natural, relaxed and unobtrusive. Candid moments, real emotions and reactions, tiny details you've planned for months, atmosphere, love, laughter and tears. I aim to record your wedding day as it happens, without posing or arranging anything, and most importantly without getting in your way. I believe every wedding is unique and should be treated that way. The thing is, the photos are about the day, not the other way around. Your wedding day, without directing or influencing the events. I won’t boss you around lining up for endless group shots. Instead, I will let you enjoy your wedding day with your friends and family. I won’t get in the way or tell you what to do. Instead, I will discreetly accompany you throughout the day. If that sounds like something you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. COVERING WEDDINGS THROUGHOUT THE UK AND ABROAD Each year I shoot weddings all over Scotland and the rest of the UK, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, St Andrews, Aberdeen, the North of England and London, to name just a few. I'm also available for destination weddings. [Edinburgh Wedding Photographer]

I'm married to my best friend, Róisín. Somehow she gets me and I'm lucky I have her. We live in Belfast with our two kids, Dáithí and Isla, in an old townhouse that's got bags of charm (and NO space). The kids are everything to us.

Taranto wedding photography by Francesco Gravina of Apulia, Italy

I am a destination wedding photographer. Over the years I focused on the world of weddings and from 2006 I finally started to express my ideas and creativity through reportage photography, or known as photojournalism. Exchanges, workshops, and collaborations with other colleagues in recent years, led me to the conclusion that much heart, and an almost invisible presence of the photographer during the event, creates best results for a real wedding reportage. A beautiful picture is something so subjective. It doesn’t have to be technically perfect to be beautiful, yet it needs to be able to re-evoke unique moments and feelings. In one single image, there is so much to say and, even more, transmit to those who look at it, again and again in time. I am a very sensitive person, one of those lucky who get excited while waiting of the bride, or enchanted in front of a kiss at the sunset. And I like to get involved emotionally in front the love stories of my couples, this is the secret of the success of my “Photo Wedding Stories”. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Hi, I’m Stefano Ferrier, sole photographer based in Milano, Italy. I work in Italy, Europe and worldwide. I’ve started my photography career in 2010, after various vicissitudes I went on to learn my studies in Photography from the Italian Institute of Photography, since 2000 to present a school leader in the field of vocational training in Italy. The studies about story of photography were for me a discovery on what had happened since 1839 up today; then I laid down the basics for my vocational path, a path that never ends since there are always new things to learn. There's also a lesson in every Wedding story. My beloved style is photojournalism, I love spontaneous and evocative emotions, sometimes i try to convert these moments in a creative beautiful way to capture things differently, I always challenge myself. Art has an advantage over the observed reality, has the power to transform it and surpass it. [Milan Wedding Photographer]

I have been taking photographs for most of my life. I have a passion for capturing what is happening around me, with no intervention or interruption, and I love a good wedding. I've been a full-time wedding photographer since 2006 and have been fortunate to attend many hundreds of weddings in every corner, and almost every county, of the UK. My work has been recognised repeatedly by the WPJA and other organisations, and I have one of the largest running totals of award-winning images in the UK. I like to immerse myself in your wedding, there from the preparations until the party is in full swing, and all I ask is that you and your guests forget about the photography and enjoy the day to the fullest. Your reward will be a thorough record of the events and emotions of the whole day. The REAL story of your wedding.

I'm a Devon based multi-award-winning photographer shooting wherever needed for the right couple. If what I do suits you I can be there if you want me. My approach is people-centric - the wedding is all about the people, and the celebration for me. At the end of the day, my intention is to create a record for you, a description of what the day felt like from the inside. The pictures should be a reflection of who you are so that when you (or your kids in years to come) look at them you see yourself at your wedding, not some cutout couple at a generic wedding that looks like something straight out of a bridal blog.

 Loire-Atlantique wedding photography by Estelle Offroy of Pays de la Loire France

I grew up in Lyon, I studied in Paris, I worked in London ... And now I live here: in Maine-et-Loire, on the edge of the Loire Atlantique, between a large river and a small river, between fields and vineyards, a land of adoption that feeds my eyes with incredible lights and mysterious mists. Before becoming a photographer, I was a cabinetmaker. But splinters and sanding hours got the better of my patience ... and then I wanted to get out of the studio, discover the world and people. For that, a camera is an extraordinary tool! When I do not photograph weddings, I do family reports, portraits of adults, children, toddlers, landscapes, bodies ... I practice and I photograph dance. The movement fascinates me. [Loire-Atlantique Wedding Photographer]

It’s nice to meet you! I’m Hristina and since the summer of 2013 I’ve been capturing wedding moments with my heart and my soul. Why do I say with heart and soul?

You are invited to take your partner’s hand, all your love and affection in order to create your family memories together!

Surrey wedding photography by Katie Roberts of England United Kingdom

I have always loved the still image. From a young age, I took control of the camera on holidays and family events, and this continued through my teens – earning me the nickname ‘Paparazzi’ among my friends. I have always loved capturing the natural, unposed, unforced moments, when people are at their most comfortable. This candid, reportage style of photography continues in my work; I love to evoke emotion in the viewer and make them look twice at the finished image. I like to work quietly around the fringes of the scene, capturing precious moments without the subject realising. So I spend the majority of shoots in a ghost-like fashion, only making my voice heard for the occasional family composition. I hope to make my shoots as much fun for the client as possible, just giving occasional direction and letting the natural laughter, love, and smiles just happen. Capturing images that stand the test of time. I have been featured in blogs and magazines and look forward to the wedding stories to come in the future! [Surrey Wedding Photographer]

I believe in providing a visual family legacy. On your wedding day, I become part of your family, one of your friends. Therefore, your story is truly told through the eyes of a friend, not a stranger. Photography at your wedding isn’t about hours of posing for photos, it’s about enjoying one of the most important days of your life with the people that matter most to you. Family. Friends. By welcoming me into your world, I am able to capture all the emotions of the day – the serious, the silly and the poetic. It is my passion as a photographer to have your wedding photos depict the relationship between you and the people you love. We become who we are through our family and friends. Your photos will communicate who they are and the bond you have with each of them. As an artist, how I see and feel during your wedding is a reflection of my own family legacy. My father, Jack, was a powerful man, in mind, body, and spirit. He taught me to listen, to be loyal, to be respectful, to always be prepared, to be charitable, and to always work hard. My mother, Sylvia, was vibrant, funny, outgoing, and generous. She gave me the confidence to be myself. In the past few years I have lost both of my parents. I miss them very much. A friend recently told me, “Tracey, on a wedding day, you are the best of both your parents. You work your tail off and you’re the couple’s best friend.” In Interlaken, Switzerland, on June 9, 2008, I married the love of my life, my rock, Pete. The way I feel when Pete looks at me is what I aspire to capture for my couples. He is thoughtful, funny, understanding, and truly my best friend. Pete is the only man, other than my father, who has loved me unconditionally. He is simply amazing. We have two rescue dogs, Roxy and Cassidy and our shelter kitty Reece. I love our little family and we couldn’t be happier! I want to get to you know you, your fiancé and your families. I want to know what matters to you most. I want to be your photographer — and on your wedding day, a member of your family. [Saratoga Springs Wedding Photographer]

I've been a wedding photographer for 16 years. I started out shooting weddings in Barcelona, Spain, where I lived and was artistically inspired for almost ten years. Now, back on home turf, I cover both UK and destination weddings. Aside from wedding photography, I provide artistic reportage coverage of business events, working for clients including Pfizer. I also do stock photography and have had work featured in hundreds of publications worldwide, from Time Magazine to The Telegraph. I've worked voluntarily for charities, such as The Cambodia Trust, and my work has been published in The Ephotozine Guide to Great Photography. Wedding photography is my passion, though. I adore being the eyes at your wedding, following emotions, and framing them artistically. My favourite subjects are moments, sometimes vibrant, other times subtle, but always very real. I've worked with many amazing people over the years, including Melanie Sykes. My other passion is my two children, Max and Romy. They provide me with amazing moments every day of the week. They grew tired of my camera very quickly, so I’ve had to learn the art of getting great photos without them noticing!

Whilst photography is my passion – it is driven by my love of design. I started my career as a Graphic Designer before discovering my love of photography and now, as a professional photographer, I feel that my creative skills really have the chance to shine. Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am addicted to gadgets and to tell you the truth…they’d be right! From mobile phones to tech gadgets to home automation… I love them all. For some reason I can’t stop adding things to my collection… the good thing about photography is that you are never too far away from a new gadget. For me, being a photographer is about capturing the people and events in your life that are important to you. I want to capture the fun, love, and atmosphere of your wedding, event, or portrait. One of the most important things you will notice about me is that I like to make people feel relaxed when I am with them… [London Wedding Photographer]

Carlos Porfírio is a Lisbon-based documentary-style wedding and elopement photographer. Carlos serves couples getting married all around Portugal as a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association - WPJA.

I was born in Luanda, Africa, and I lived there until I was 10 years old, a time when I moved to Portugal. I've started my career working as a designer and web designer in an advertising company, but quickly I noticed that I was missing a very important part of my nature - to be connected to people and all the emotions related. I then studied the direction of photography and worked for a while in TV, fiction, advertising, as well as contributing as a freelancer photographer in different agencies. Since then, I've been connected and inspired by different people, places, and cultures, by a simple smile, a color, or just with mother nature in its state of the art. I work professionally in the wedding industry for more than 12 years, on behalf of Laranja Metade [Half Orange] brand, as a parallelism to those looking for their soul mate (the half part). In the past years more as Destination Wedding Photographer. I want to be true and honest when I document a wedding. To observe and write creatively all the feelings related to the key and unexpected moments, in a natural way. I will be honoured to embrace this journey with you. [Lisbon Wedding Photographer]

For me, wedding photography is such a personal thing and I love having the opportunity to build that rapport with my couples for them to feel relaxed on their wedding day. Which is why I like to meet my couples when possible and build up a relationship long before the big day. [County Antrim Wedding Photographer]

Since 2008 I have been part of a professional photography team capturing over 300 wedding adventures in our hometown of Nottingham and the UK across several cultures including Afro-Caribbean, Chinese, English, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Nigerian and Sikh. My Approach At a wedding, we are the unobtrusive guests allowing the day to unfurl at its own beautiful pace where The Couple and their chosen loved ones can just ‘Be’. This approach lends itself to a documentary type of photography where we capture moments that resonate with atmosphere and meaning. [Nottinghamshire Wedding Photographer]

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they!

Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe!

Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case.

"Dear Hrisi, We would like to express our deepest gratitude towards you as our wedding photographer. When we began to plan our wedding, we had to decide about a lot of things, but one thing that we knew for sure was that we wanted to have you as the photographer on our special day. The photos in your portfolio were so amazing that captured our imagination and made us inpatient for the big day. We had really high expectations towards you but you were able not only to meet them but also to exceed them through your talent and professionalism. Your friendly attitude, care and attention made us and our guests feel so comfortable and at ease all the time. We can’t forget that you were with us from early in the morning until late in the night, capturing with your magical eye all of our important moments. These photos will always remind us of the amazing wedding day that we had, the wonderful time spent and all the emotions shared with our closest friends and families. We would like to wish you to keep your artistic touch and will be more than happy to share with you the forthcoming special moments of our life as husband and wife!" Iskren and Teodora

Hi Dylan - We've spent every spare minute looking at our prints. The way you've captured the light, colour, movement and emotion in each of the pictures is just incredible. It's hard to explain but it's like each picture comes to life when you look at it. We're noticing things that we didn't see online and we are having so much fun reliving our day! Thanks again

Hi Dylan, Thanks so so much for the photographs. We got back from honeymoon yesterday and are feeling rather blue but this has brightened up our mood and day like nothing else.

Dear Dylan I just wanted to drop you a note about our amazing wedding photos – I can’t stop looking at them and each time I do, I see something different in them! It was such a lovely surprise to get a first look at them when we were on honeymoon. I really think you captured the day so well and it has really eased the post-wedding/honeymoon blues. On a personal note, I wanted to thank you for the utterly pain-free way you took all the shots, so different to the usual posed pictures that leave everyone bored stiff with the whole process and with wooden expressions. I just love the natural smiles and happy expressions of all my family! With very best wishes Majella and Noel

The photos will always remind us how happy and emotional we were and how much fun everybody had. The joy of sharing the pictures and memories with family and friends increased when everyone said to be sincerely impressed by the beauty of our pictures. The creativity and attention to detail you possess shines through in all our photos. In a natural way, you have captured perfectly the beauty and spirit of the most special day of our lives. Thank you for transforming our wedding photos into works of art. Francesco, you are an excellent photographer; you have a great eye to capture a romantic scene and mood. Next to that, you are great to work with: friendly, enthusiastic, sharing emotions … We are happy to know you and to have you as our photographer. The best compliment we can give you is advising you to people we know, what we will do gladly. Thank you for giving us such beautiful memories of our wedding. Sincerely, Jan & Maria
