We recently had the immense pleasure of working with Sarah for our wedding.

A number of people in the bridal party are a bit nervous in front of the camera but Sarah’s enormous talent, professionalism and good sense of humour put everyone at ease.

From our sneak peek we can tell that we will have photos that we will cherish for a lifetime and for that we are forever grateful.

If you are not thinking about booking Sarah for your upcoming event then you are making a mistake

What to expect from your Kenmare & Killarney wedding photographer?

I know the wedding days can bring a lot of big emotions & I'm here for it! I bring cool, calm and serious laugh's to your wedding day! Unfortunately not prosecco, but you can't win them all!

I offer natural, documentary wedding photography in Cork & Kerry, that's timeless, evocative and good craic.

Where do I shoot weddings?

I shoot the BEST most FUNNEST (If thats a word) adventure elopements, destination weddings, small weddings & intimate weddings throughout Kerry such as Kenmare, Killarney & Dingle. Capturing the rugged beauty of Ireland including the Ring of Kerry & the Wild Atlantic Way with your love journey. I do small, in a big way.

How can I make your wedding photos look fun, relaxed & candid?

Getting your photo taken can bloody awkward for some, I get it! 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.

I create wedding photo's which will outlive your wedding flowers, wedding cake & wedding band!

Sounds weird but it's true! I capture the driving rain, the howling wind and the atmosphere that goes with it too. So matter what the weather, a session will be had. Us Irish know how to celebrate a wedding in style, and that includes all the big emotions that come with it, the tears, the laughter, the whoopsie daisies!!

If your dad's rocking it out with the trad band, cousin Brid and her haphazardly applied tan or Uncle Larry, well just being Uncle Larry which is embarrassing, those are the things I'll look out for!

I want your wedding gallery to feel like home, to bring you the warm fuzzies and contain images which you'll look back on and laugh at! You'll relieve moments long forgotten and see faces that may no longer be with us.

Photos stand the test of time, never, ever underestimate that.

Cork wedding photographer | Kerry Wedding Photographer | Sarah Kate Photography

I go the extra mile to get to know you ahead of the wedding

Because it would be super weird not to!!

If I'm going to be involved in your big day, I want to know how you, how you met, what you love, and where you hope married life will take you.

You can add pre-wedding engagement sessions, to any of my wedding packages!

Why? Because, it puts you at ease in front of the camera, you become an expert 'poser' and it allows me to get nicer photos on the day, because you know me and trust me.

Do not underestimate it!

But don't want to miss out on all the moments?

Planning a small intimate wedding?

Planning a small intimate wedding?

Fear not, changing your dream large or foreign wedding doesn't have to be a bad thing. In fact by having an intimate, small wedding in Cork or Kerry, means more time with the people who matter the most!

I have tailored wedding photography packages which cater for smaller/shorter weddings, but you don't miss out on any wedding moments & you have time to get in the frame with all your guests!

You still get a great photography package which will capture your day in a big way!

Sarah Kate is an absolutely fabulous photographer. She was our photographer for our recent wedding in Kenmare at the beginning of October 2023.

I didn't realise how much time we would spend with our photographer on our wedding day, from the start with wedding prep, all the way throughout our wedding day - Sarah Kate was ideal. She was fun, always great for a good laugh, friendly, supportive, super professional and just good to be around.

Kenmare or Killarney Wedding Photographer

Your wedding day is the one of the most important days in your life & what better place to have it then in Kenmare. There are so many incredible venues, photography locations and vendors that create the day you’ve always been dreaming of. Having your wedding in Kenmare or Killarney. Here are some reasons why Cork Weddings are the best.

Why I love Kenmare Weddings!

Being a Wedding Photographer in Kenmare is such a privilege. Not only do I get to be a part of one of the most important days of a couple’s lives, I also get to capture their memories at the most amazing venues & locations. Kenmare has so many options for any couples planning their wedding such as Dromquinna Manor & Sheen Falls!

Why I love Kerry Weddings?

I grew up close to both Killarney and Kenmare and have spent many a childhood Sunday drive in both! I love Killarney weddings because they have so many stunning backdrops for couple & family portraits. I know the Killarney National Park really well along with the Gap of Dunloe, Molls Gap & Ladies View.

How do we book?

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.
I cannot hold dates without a retainer & I do get multiple enquiries about the same dates so I would always recommend booking sooner rather than later.

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

Yes I edit all your gallery, image by image. I love revisiting your day 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 many photos will we get?

Depending on the duration of coverage, for full day I usually deliver around a 800 final images. All photographs come in website and high resolution, and can be downloaded without watermarks.

How long before we get our wedding gallery?

Depending on the time of year it can vary between 12-16 weeks.

Do you have a shot list?

I try to get all the standard photos of your day, family shots etc! If there are important people you want captured let me know, and also let your mum/bridemaids know so that we can keep on top of that! Your day will go by so quickly and a lot of the imagery I take & am known for are candid natural moments.

Do you use flash or off camera flash?

I'm primarily a natural light photographer, it.s the most flattering & natural light and I advise this to clients ahead of any ceremony. This is the imagery you can see on my website ahead of booking.

I do use flash for first dance & dancing., however would advise having your whole ceremony coverage in flash. I recommend where possible that couple and family portraits take place in natural light which is up to 2 hours before sunset & to bear this in mind ahead of booking.

Do you have a question?

Hit me up if you have any questions

How far do you travel?

I travel all over Munster for weddings,
such as counties Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford.

Wedding photography outside of these locations may incur travel fees, but I discuss this with you ahead of booking.
