"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"

As a female Irish wedding photographer

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

Wedding & Elopement Photographer

IN cORK, kerry & Ireland

I shoot adventure 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.

Us Irish know how to celebrate in style, and that includes all the big emotions that come with it, the tears, the laughter, the whoopsie daisies!

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! 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 album to feel like home, to bring you the warm fuzzies and contain images which you'll

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 still want great photography?

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, it means you can save money for the big things later on such as a house or trips abroad.

I have tailored wedding photography packages which cater for smaller/shorter weddings, but you don't miss out on any wedding moments.

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


Small intimate wedding photographer | Cork | Kerry | Ireland

From big parties to cozy, candlelit ceremonies, all love stories deserve to be told beautifully. No matter what your budget, you can elope to Ireland and not break the bank. You can choose a quirky wedding venue such as a castle, pub or cottage or you can elope outdoors like the Cliffs of Moher, West Cork or along the Wild Atlantic Way. The possibilities are endless, and it makes a wildly romantic boho alternative to a standard wedding. I'm pretty much down for anything so if you want to ride into the venue

Capture all the things you can't see!

Why have one photographer, when you can have two!

Capture every single moment, the moments you can't see, the moments which aren't possible due to logistics, the moments with the people who matter the most!

I have tailored packages for adding a second shooter to your big day.

Having a second shooter at your wedding means we can capture twice the moments, twice as fast, which means more time for you to enjoy the party!!!

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.

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.

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.

Why I love Cork Weddings!

Being a Wedding Photographer in Cork 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. Cork has so many options for any couples planning their Wedding. Therefore, there is no reason not to love photographing Weddings in Cork.

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.
