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 Castleknock Hotel Wedding
Castleknock Hotel, Dublin, is probably one of the most popular venues for weddings out this neck of the woods and we regularly do a few weddings there every year. These two were lovely to work with, and their two boys were obviously the centre of their world. Thoroughly enjoyed our day working with them, and with their friends who kept us all laughing all day long.
A Kilashee House Wedding
Neither the Bride or the Groom have any Irish connection, it just felt like a good meeting place for this American Bride-to-be and her English Groom-to-be. With family and friends coming from all over the world to celebrate their wedding day we were delighted to be asked to be their wedding photographers at Killashee House, Kildare..
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 so much easier.
