BLACK TIE ELOPEMENT, Ireland, Cork, Killarney Elopement photographer

As an Irish Engagement photographer

I know the lay of the land, I offer natural, engagement photography in Ireland, thats timeless, evocative and good craic. Its in my DNA, what more can I say.

Couple, Enagement & Elopement Photographer

IN cORK, kerry & Ireland

I shoot adventure couple photoshoots, engagements, elopements, micro, small weddings & intimate weddings throughout Cork, West Cork, Kerry & Ireland. Capturing the rugged beauty of Ireland with your endearing journey. I do small, in a big way.


Thats ok, I do too! It's bloody awkward, I have a unique ability to make you relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera so those all those elopements, holy matrimony, unholy matrimony, rituals, coupling, soirees and general expressions of unyielding love. Insert someone playing the violin.


As a local means I have a expert understanding of where and when to shoot, I understand the weather, the terrain and I understand the unique Irish light, which makes planning your Irish engagement or intimate couple session that bit easier. I grew up 20 minutes drive from Gougane Barra, 40 minutes from Killarney National Park, and 40 minutes from West Cork, 1 hour from Dingle. Not only am I a local Cork elopement photographer, I know these places inside out. I have connections and memories here. I know the history and the culture & its really important for me that these play a part in your session.

I know the cutest spots to watch the sun set, I know where the wind blows a gale down the valley and I know cute little spots to get some adventure couple portraits. I will work with you and give you guidance on venues which may make your day extra special and I will help you discover just how adventurous you want to be. Let me take you to all the epic West Cork & Kerry elopement locations.

Want a different kind of engagement session?

You might have seen the same images over and over of an Irish engagement session think the Cliffs of Mohar or Dunluce castle

Instead, you dream to elope to Ireland or an intimate, small wedding, by travelling somewhere beautiful in Ireland and committing your lives to each other in a more intimate and meaningful way.

Whatever the reason for choosing an Irish Elopement, I am glad you found me.

Because I am Irish, I have intimate knowledge of all the best nooks and crannies to get eloped in Ireland and especially, Cork or Kerry. I also know the best places to get a pint of Guinness afterwards to help get the party started.

My wedding photography is perfect for capturing proposals, engagements, vow renewals, anniversary sessions, pre-wedding shoots or simply capturing your travel adventures in a new and awesome place. I enjoy capturing the small intimate moments, and the quirkier your wedding, the better.

I am an inclusive wedding photographer who embraces the LGBTQ community through LGBTQ weddings, elopements, commitment ceremonies, engagements e.t.c.

How do we book?

I book up 3-4 months in advance. Once I have confirmed your date is available, I will send you a contract and then your date is fully secure with two things in place: a retainer and signed agreement.

How many photos will we get?

Depending on the duration of coverage, for full day I usually deliver around a 100 final images and depending on your package you can download directly from your gallery. All photographs come in website and high resolution, and can be downloaded without watermarks.

We are nervous in front of the camera

Dude I get it, so am I! But I promise I make it so much fun you will 100% forget im there with my camera by the end of it! And I'd be very surprised I didn't know your life story by the end of your session too, because I talk ALOT.

Do you edit the photos? Do you photoshop the photos?

Yes I edit all your gallery, image by image. I love reliving your day again and it's a lot of fun, to see all those moments again!

And before you ask, no I will not photoshop you, I love to celebrate natural beauty. If you wish to have your images photoshopped or further post editing additional charges will be applied per image.

How long before we get our gallery?

I will send you a sneak peek within a week of the wedding. Depending on the time of year it can vary between 6 weeks to 12-16 weeks during peek season. .
