Dublin, Ireland Documentary Wedding Photography by Annie Kheffache

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.

Kevin Kheffache is an Irish, documentary wedding photographer serving Leinster, Dublin and all of 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.

Leinster and County Meath wedding photography by Peter Rowen of Ireland

I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in County Meath, Ireland and I absolutely love what I do. I started shooting weddings back in 2002 and it’s been an epic adventure that’s taken me to every single corner of this gorgeous little island I live on. I’ve picked up a bunch of awards along the way including a very recent one 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]

David Gilmartin is an Authentic Wedding Photographer from Dublin

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 by Enda Guerin of Ireland

I’m a photographer based in Tipperary, Ireland. I photograph in a friendly, relaxed natural photo-documentary style. I still do the formal/traditional stuff but aim to keep it as brief as possible so you're not being dragged around all day doing awkward posing, giving you more time to mingle with your guests. 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]

Ireland and Dublin wedding reportage photographs are favored by Sebastian Felisiak

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]

Ireland and Dublin documentary wedding photography by Gareth McGaughey of Leinster

I'm a documentary wedding photographer living in North Leinster, Ireland. I have been shooting weddings since 2012 and adore capturing the unique stories that play out at every wedding. I feel very lucky to be given the task of documenting such a big day in a couple's life and creating a piece of history for them and future generations to look through. I aim for honest, timeless images that not only remind you of how your wedding day looked but also how it felt. Quietly observing and capturing the day as it unfolds, I let moments happen organically and without direction. This approach allows couples to be completely absorbed in their day and embrace all the joy and emotion that it brings, rather than it becoming a scripted photo shoot. [Dublin Wedding Photographer]

Fille Roelants Photography - Wedding photographer

Fille graduated as a pharmacist in 2010 but soon felt this profession was not his true calling. During his studies, he got fascinated by photography. Two years after his graduation he started taking his hobby to a new level by photographing parties and events he would normally attend as a guest. Especially attracted by beautiful light and human emotions he started photographing big festivals and parties around the globe. After 3 years of combining these 2 jobs, he gradually got drawn into weddings and kept evolving ever since. Today he has shot about 140 weddings in about 7 years time. And he usually shoots about 23 weddings per year nowadays. He has always been inspired by numerous different photographers, which influences his work in a very diverse way. Alex Webb has inspired him to explore the world of layering. Fille's own background as a festival photographer has brought him a very dynamic style of shooting, focussed on human emotion, light, and colors. Fille is also a keen travel photographer and loves to combine this with his job as a wedding photographer. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]

Portugal and Porto is where you will find wedding photographer Daniel Monteiro

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 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]

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]

Andrew Billington award winning documentary wedding photographer

The first chapter in my working life was as an actor and theatre stage manager. I’ve spent my life telling stories and I continue to do so. I live with my wife Rachel and my two dogs on the edge of the Peak District in the UK - most of my spare time is spent walking, reading and catching up with box sets. For the last ten years, I’ve been photographing weddings, refining and perfecting my relaxed, story-telling approach. I photograph on average 40 weddings a year and try to find something different for every wedding couple I work with. 3 years ago I was asked to run a workshop on my approach to documentary wedding photography and that has expanded into running full day workshops across the UK (and even a solo, workshop in Crete in 2018). As well as photographing weddings I photograph live theatre for a few national theatres and it's a way of getting my photography to a wider audience through Nation Newspapers and exhibitions.

I've been a full-time photographer for over 5 years now. Photographing people being people is the best thing ever and I know I'll still be doing it long after I've photographed my last wedding. 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. On weekends off, we fuel-up with coffee and take them out adventuring. [Belfast Wedding Photographer]

Lombardy and Milan is where you will find wedding photographer Stefano Ferrier

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]

United Kingdom, England and Devon are where wedding photojournalist Mike Riley can be found shooting in his reportage style..

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]

United Kingdom, England and Surrey is where Katie Roberts applies her wedding reportage skills.

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]

New York - Upstate wedding photographer Tracey Buyce

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]

Wedding Photographer captures quite moment as the bridesmaid looks timidly out before entering the scene
Weddings can be chaotic, noisy affairs where emotions are displayed publicly, so one of your biggest challenges that day can be capturing that quiet, intimate side. Trust, anticipation, skilled observation, savvy lens selection and a host of other judgments make it possible to bag those poignant moments in images that recall the day for those in attendance, and reveal a story for those who were not. It is all part of the unique value proposition that our members bring to wedding photojournalism.Read more

After all, it’s called a milestone for a reason. One of the best compositional strategies for a wedding photojournalist is to focus on images with depth. Deep photos, like...Read more
Cake cutting photograph with the bride and groom deciding if they should smash or not smash the cake.
No other tradition during the wedding day should rely as heavily on improvisation as the cake cutting.

In fact, not following the “rules” is frequently what makes the cake cutting unforgettable. This time-honored ritual can turn into an entertaining affair with...Read more

You are incredible - thank you so so so so much for capturing such vivid, animated, meaningful and perfect pictures. We’re having Ben’s family round on Monday and then going to my grandma’s house next week for full family screenings so I’m sure I’ll write again then. Thank you, thank you. We feel so unbelievably lucky. Katya

Hi Andrew, Phroahhhhhhh! What photos! What WONDERFUL photos, thank you very much indeed. We have had so much fun coming back from days of sightseeing and reminiscing about what was for us such a perfect day. Your photos have captured some beautiful moments, thank you so much! We have shared the link with family and friends and the compliments keep coming in! The photo album looks beautiful, Sarah is somewhat of a photo album nerd and has plans to make a wedding album when we're back (so may be in touch in December). Thank you again for helping make our day even more special, these photos will bring us happy memories for many years to come. With much appreciation of your skill in capturing the day, Robert and Sarah

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

"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

Dear Francesco, It has been a month when Jan and I made our vows to each other. When we look back on our photos, it’s like reading the book of our great love story. 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

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
