Dublin Wedding Photographers: 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.

We love natural looking portraits of people. As wedding photographers we're used to people telling us they don't like being photographed, but we're very easy going and don't insist on doing things in any set way. We'll chat, help out, carry this and that, be transport if needed, and generally do whatever it takes to make sure your wedding day goes smoothly. You'll be busy doing things all day, far too busy most of the time to pay much attention to two wedding photographers, which allows us to quietly go about documenting everything that happens.

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. People are at their best when they're being themselves, and that's what we try to capture

We're both professional wedding photographers, we shoot between 30 and 40 weddings per year, but we do have quite different styles and approaches to how we work at weddings: Jill is very organised and pays great attention to the details, while Mike tends to go with his gut feeling and work intuitively.

We've been married since 2001, so we know how each other works; we've been competitive since we met in college. More often than not couples will comment on the dynamic we have, we love working with each other but we love pushing each others' buttons too.

We do prefer to work without a long list of must-have shots, it can be quite restrictive as wedding photographers if we're spending the day ticking this and that off a list, most of which we would probably take, and in doing so we might well miss out on those spontaneous moments that are far more unique.

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. As wedding photographers it really is a privilege to be asked to create the kind of images that will allow you to do that.
