Laid back luxury wedding photography

THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME!

Cork wedding Photographer | Killarney Wedding Photographer | Sarah Kate Photography

I create wedding photography which will outlive your wedding flowers, wedding cake & wedding band!


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.

Are you planning an elopement in Ireland

and need an epic elopement photographer?

Elope to Ireland

Elope to Ireland

From big parties to cozy, candlelit ceremonies, all love stories deserve to be told beautifully.

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 when you choose Ireland for your destination wedding, and it makes a wildly romantic alternative to a standard wedding.

I'm pretty much down for anything so if you want to ride into the venue

FAQ

I hate getting my photo taken?

You know what? So do I!

If you trust me (which I hope you will) I will take photos which will make you proud of who you are & let your personality shine through! I give guidance on faltering poses. And before you ask, no I won't photoshop you to make you look skinner!

What is your style?

I mix documentary moments with beautiful couple and family portraiture.

I'm a big fan of leaving a moment unfold naturally and won't make you recreate moments on your big day. I'm the right type of photographer for you if you value genuine humour and emotion in your imagery.

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.

How many photos will we get?

Depending on the duration of coverage, for full day I usually deliver around a 800 final images for a 11 hour day (prep to first dance).

All photographs come in website and high resolution, and can be downloaded without watermarks and enjoyed by family and friends alike.

How long before we get our wedding gallery?

Depending on the time of year it can vary between 10-12 weeks.

I edit all the images myself and while it's time consuming, I love reliving peoples days again and it brings back lot's of lovely memories and emotions! I have been known to cry while I edit, I do this because I want to go the extra mile for clients and don't outsource. It's a labour of love for me.

It's important for men to go the extra mile for my clients, which is why I take the time and effort to do it myself rather than outsource it.

How far do you travel?

I travel all over Munster for weddings,
such as counties Cork, Kerry, Limerick, & Tipperary, in venues such as Dromquinna Manor, Sheen Falls, Muckross Park Hotel, The Europe, Castlemartyr Resort, Adare Manor, Cloughjordan house, Liss Ard Estate, Inish beg, Ballyvolane house, Kilshanehouse etc

Additional fees apply for venues outside of this.

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. 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.

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.

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.

Cork Wedding Photographer

Your wedding day is the one of the most important days in your life & what better place to have it than in Cork. There are so many incredible venues, photography locations in Cork & West Cork and vendors that create the day you’ve always been dreaming of.

Killarney Wedding photographer

I love photographing weddings in Killarney, Killarney has some of the best wedding venues in Ireland and Killarney national Park makes the best backdrop with its mountains and lakes for any couple looking for a complete wedding solution.
