As full time wedding photographers for the last 10 years, both Dave and myself have made many people laugh and cry (tears of joy!) with the power of an image. This photograph of us both was actually taken by one of our brides when we had finished shooting her wedding and “our song” came on so we hit the dancefloor! 🙂
A little about us….
We don’t talk to each other until we have had our freshly brewed coffee in the morning 🙂 It avoids lots of unnecessary arguments lol! We are super proud parents to our boys Cailean & Dáithí and love spending time enjoying their chaos! We are both extremely driven, competitive and stubborn, which our clients and photography students seem to find extremely amusing. Dave is the techie and logical thinker. Ask him anything technical about photography and be prepared for the mathematical equations to follow! 🙂
Im the dreamer, the one who believes that nothing is “impossible” and I am a completely “draw outside the lines” type of girl!
I love to be inspired by a couple, a venue, or simply something random that I see on a wedding day. Combining our different skills and experience means that we cover all aspects needed on a wedding day and all the unpredictability that can arise!
Enough about us, what about you?….
You are excited, you’re fun, and you’re totally in love. Photography is very important to you, and you want to hire the absolute right team to help you.
Please take the time to look around, make sure you find work that you love and a Photographer that you connect with as they are the only supplier that you will spend the WHOLE DAY with! 🙂
Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event, don’t settle for anything less than perfect!

Questions that we are often asked…….
What is your style?
Our style is like ourselves, unobtrusive, relaxed and fun. We are there to document your special day. We are not there to intrude and dictate to you. We capture beautiful moments as they happen and do not stage them. We do however have some fun creating beautiful portraits when we spend roughly 30 minutes with yourself and bridal party after your ceremony. Our couples really value this time away from everyone and all the craziness of the day. We encourage you to spend that time together, talking, laughing, sharing stories from the morning as that helps you to feel natural and relaxed. But for the rest of the day you will barely notice us!
Should I give you a shot list?
When you contact us about shooting your wedding we will send you a full gallery of a real wedding to look through. You will see that we are very thorough with our coverage, including photos of your dress, jewellery, shoes, flowers, car, reception decor. There is no need to give us a shot list. What we will ask for is a list of your family group shots.
How many photographers will be at my wedding?
A minimum of two (for larger weddings with our additional services, photo booths, slideshows etc we have an extra junior photographer on hand to help with any set ups, leaving Tara and Dave to continue shooting the action.)
Tara is the lead photographer who stays with the bride, while Dave is responsible for shooting the groom getting ready, all details. Providing a second angle on the ceremony and reception and assisting with off camera lighting for our creative portraits.
Do you edit all the photos or are they sent away?
Tara is a perfectionist and therefore edits every photograph before sending them to clients. Both herself and Dave often shoot an image with the finished shot in mind so editing is done quite quickly.
You have photographed our wedding what happens next?
Your wedding is backed up immediately and editing begins.
An online gallery is created for you to share with family and friends and
Once all edits are complete you will be sent a USB with all your edited files ready for printing.
If you are getting an album as part of your package, the design process will also be discussed at this stage. You can pick your favourite images and be involved in the design process.
How long will it take to see our photographs?
In the quiet season usually between 2-3 weeks. In the busy season it can be from 4-16 weeks. Tara and Dave will keep you updated as to the progress of your wedding edits.
Do you travel for weddings?
YES we love to travel both in Ireland and especially abroad. We are happy to grab the passports and travel to your wedding! Contact us for more info!
When is my date officially reserved?
A booking fee of €300 secures your wedding date. You will also receive a contract from us confirming our agreement in writing.
Do you require dinner?
Yes please! It’s a long day without any breaks, if we are asked to stay for extended coverage, a meal would be very much appreciated!
