Wedding Photographers at the Four Seasons Carlingford

Wedding Photographers Dublin: Mike & Jill O'Dwyer

 

Here at Dublin Wedding Photography we believe wedding photographers should concentrate on creating images that will instantly bring back fond memories of a truly magical day, and the best way to do that is to not get in the way of people being themselves.

As wedding photographers there's nothing more rewarding than capturing two people in love, lost in a moment of their own making.

Wedding and portrait photographers are used to people telling us them don't like being photographed, but the truth is that on your Wedding Day every couple is far too busy doing things to pay much attention to wedding photographers who don't want to be noticed. 

Whether each couple is busy with preparations, greeting guests, getting caught up in the emotion of the ceremony, having their portraits taken together or with families, mingling with friends, or busting out their best moves on the dance floor late into the evening we always find, as any most professional wedding photographers will, that the best moments happen when we interfere the least.

We are both professional photographers, we met while studying photography in the College of Marketing & Design in Dublin. We married in 2001, built our home and studio on Jill's family's farm in north County Dublin where we live with our son.

We love being married to each other and couples can relate to that; we're different photographers, and competitive, which is half the fun.

We photograph between 30 and 40 weddings per year, mostly in Dublin, but also in the surrounding counties: Louth, Monaghan, Cavan, Meath Westmeath, Kildare, Laois, Wicklow, Carlow, Kilkenny, and Wexford. We're different types of photographers, and we have different styles and approaches to how we work at weddings.

What you're going to look back on in 10 years, or 25 years, or even 50 years, are those wedding photographs that bring back great memories. Being wedding photographers really is a privilege to create the kind of images that will become memories for your children, and their children, to look back on in years to come when they think of you.

Sneak Peeks From Recent Weddings

A Four Seasons Carlingford Wedding

Carlingford, Co. Louth, is one of the most beautiful parts of the country, a bay surrounded on all sides by mountains and a lovely welcoming town to chill out in. We were the wedding photographers for Aoife & James at the Four Seasons. Her Dad, another photographer, knew all the best spots and helped make our job so much easier.

Tinakilly House Wedding Bride

A Tinakilly House Wedding

Absolutely adore Tinakilly House, a luxurious wedding venue in Rathnew, Wicklow, only a short hop from Dublin.  Ailing and Alan had hired us over a year ago, and we met them again at their friends' wedding where we were wedding photographers - it's such a small country. A genuinely lovely couple with a great set of friends who were such good fun to work with.

Balyna House Bride & Groom

A Balyna House Wedding

Loved this couple. We met them twice before their wedding day in Kildare, as their plans had changed from one venue to another. Paddy is so genuine and chatty, while Wendy is quieter, paying attention to every detail. How they act and react to each other is fantastic, there's so much easy humour between them it makes our job as wedding photographers an absolute pleasure.
