Susan’s hen party

It’s tradition, you have to have one last horah with the girls before the big day. Unlike some images that may come to mind when you think of a hen party, Susans bridesmaids threw her a stylish bash in the very swanky G Hotel in Galway. I can’t get over the attention to detail in this hotel. Everything is done to the highest standards, the décor is outstanding.  Colourful cocktails at 4, champaign and costumes for a fun photoshoot then off to dinner and to paint the town red. Susan is lucky enough to have as one her bridesmaids the very talented Kate Hyde of henparty.ie (yes, as seen on Dragons Den!) and she certainly knows her stuff. Mixing a group of girls who often don’t know each other to begin with can be tough, but by the time they were heading off to dinner they were besties. I had a lot of fun with this group… really looking forward to the next hen!

Miss Ireland – Maire Hughes

This shoot in Lisloughrey Lodge was taken for the July 2012 issue of RSVP magazine. The details of how Maire won and lost the Miss Ireland crown are described in the interview with Carrie McKeown. Maire is a lovely down to earth girl who does a great job as a model and I wish her the very best in her career! The whole team were great fun to work with the staff at Lisloughrey are so helpful and I wouldn’t complain about the food either… had a delicious lunch in between dress changes sent to our room. I would have loved to have spent the night there!

Mel and Kerry’s big day





Kerry and Mel are the sweetest couple. They celebrated their wedding in the beautiful Durrow Castle. I love this location from the first time I attended a wedding here, which was a winter wedding. The castle and grounds are perfect for any time of year. They’ve stuck with traditional décor and the staff too are very friendly. Kerry is from the States and has adapted to life and the weather here by now. They are so meant for each other these two, is was obvious from the first time I saw them together at their engagement session, they seamed to know each other so well they had conversations without the need for words… handy that! I wish them both the very best, I’m sure they’ll have a very long and happy future together. 
Thanks guys, for allowing me to be part of your great day!

Shooting at Lisloughrey Lodge, Cong, Co Mayo

Had such a good time with the creative team on this shoot! The model was the most beautiful girl in Mayo. She  really has stunning features and is so nice to boot! The Make up artist, stylist, her assistant and the hairdresser all had a go at holding a light stand or reflector for me. I think we all really enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy this sneak peak of the behind the scenes action. You’ll have to wait for the next edition of RSVP magazine for the finished results… I know, I can’t wait either! 😉


If you can guess the model, stick it in the comments below.

Looking forward to their wedding in July, Cora and Dave took some time out from planning to bring the dog for a walk by the sea, with me and my camera! Renville is a quite little cove with lots of boats and great place to watch the sunset. Thanks guys for hanging out, had a great giggle with ye!

Kerry & Mel’s Engagement Session

On a crisp day in beautiful Glendolough, Co. Wicklow we celebrated the engagement of Mel and Kerry. Stopping in the lodge for a hot cuppa to warm the bones and then headed out for a stroll. You can’t not love this place. I’ve taken many walks and even once jogged around the lake and there is always a surprise goat or some deer to see and the scenery looks different every time. On this day I also had a good friend filming a bit of the shoot for my new promo video. Kerry and Mel were so gracious and lots of fun. I can’t wait for the big day in April at another stunning location, Durrow Castle. 🙂 Hope you enjoy my favourites from the shoot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Galway Now – Wedding photography special

Super fun working with the lovely Emer Donlon, editor of Galway Now magazine on a shoot for her profile picture. And the Radisson Blu hotel provided a wonderfully bright location for it. 


Delighted to see the results of her first edition as editor. The layout and content are fab. Congrats to Emer and the team!


Also lovely to see Katrina and Sean’s wedding feature. I’ve known them as a couple for many years and their beautiful, intimate wedding was the most natural thing in the world. They are so made for each other! Always nice to see my work in print also, I hope all the readers enjoy this selection of the best bits. 🙂


Please pick up a copy if you get a chance.


Happy Spring everyone!


Cheers,
Dee 🙂
