I’m Ian

I’m a professional wedding photographer based in Drumcondra, Dublin 9.

I have a broad range of experience including corporate, commercial, studio and portrait photography, but now I specialise and focus solely on wedding photography, so that I can give every couple, my complete dedication during all stages of the process, from initial enquiry to delivery of the finished products.

I’m passionate about all genres of photography. I also love landscape, wildlife, travel and portrait photography, which I have won numerous awards for, both nationally and internationally.

In 2016, I was awarded a Licentiateship (LIPF) by the Irish Photographic Federation.

I also run photography courses and workshops for novice and intermediate photographers in West Dublin. Teaching photography is a great way to share my passion for subject.


During the enquiry stage or after you book me, I'm always available to be contacted at any time if you have any questions or would like any advice about the flow of your wedding day.

I'm always happy to provide guidance about how to make your day run efficiently, so that you enjoy your day and have maximum mingling time with your guests.

Most of your day will be captured in a relaxed documentary style, with the exception of the family photos, bridal party and couple shoot.
These photos are done quickly and efficiently, to get everyone back to the party as soon as possible.

For the rest of the time, I capture the day as it unfolds, looking out for all the laughs, fun, moments and emotion.

I'm also very flexible, so if couples have any requests about particular photos they would like, or the manner in which they would like their day captured, I'm always happy to oblige.

Closer to the date, I will always arrange a call or meeting to go through the plan for day and all the finer details and how you would like it to be captured.

Ian was always without a doubt going to be our wedding photographer.

We didn’t even look at anyone else’s work, we were that sure.

Ian was the perfect gentleman for the entire day. From the moment he stepped into my parents house until he left the venue that night, he was nothing short of amazing.

From giving us little tips, helping with the cufflinks, button holes etc, he really was a massive part of our day and helped wherever he could.

The idea of having someone with a camera in my face all day was very daunting, but Ian had my husband and I feeling very relaxed and comfortable.

Ian’s approach to photography is so relaxed and natural, which is exactly what we wanted. We didn’t want our wedding photos looking really staged or edited.

Ian delivered our photos within 2 weeks after our wedding and really captured the love and happiness during our day which we couldn’t be happier with them. The more I look at them, the more I enjoy them. We really love having such beautiful photos that hold such precious memories.

Ian, we cannot thank you enough for the effort you put into our wedding photos. And hopefully we'll have loads of excuses to use your services in the future. Elaine & Mark.
