Wedding photography pricing in Ireland

Investment, Memories, Experience

How much to invest in wedding photography?

Speaking honestly, you don’t need a photographer on your wedding day.

They are not as needed as a celebrant.

Your guests will still eat and drink without one.

Your outfits will remain as beautiful.

You will still be as happy and married.


Your photographer is for every day after your wedding day.

To always remind you of the beginning of your journey

According to Onefabday , the average cost wedding photographer in Ireland is between €2,000 – €4,000. For elopement photography, pricing is similar.

A good photographer will capture you at your finest, in a way that you’d always like to remember yourselves.

Over time, your clothing may tighten and your vows may be tested, but these pictures will remain the same – you and your loved ones frozen in joy.

A good photographer is an investment for your future selves, for your children and grandchildren, so you can always show them what it means to love.

How much is that worth to you?

Photography can describe emotion in a way that words can’t. Feel that moment again with a photo.

Your world pauses on your wedding day. A great photo can make the world stop, just when you want it to.

Photo Editing

The perfect photo goes beyond the lens. Professional photo editing brings depth to your gallery. Nature may give us grey sky, rain, or poor lighting, but you can create a breathtaking photograph with a good shot and professional editing.

Consistency in photo editing provides a unique feel to the whole gallery. I love natural tones and preserving the true colours. Adding a subtle edit will make your photos ageless.

Wedding Photography Packages Booking Steps

How this will work

#1

After your initial inquiry we can start by arranging a video or phone call. No obligations at all. This is needed as we both want to be sure that you want me by your side at your best day ever. We will talk about your vision of the day and what is your dream wedding and how can I help you to make this hapen, so that you can feel confidence in booking me.

#2

I can send you a questionnaire to lock down some very important parts of the day, like ceremony time, at the time of the year that you are planning your wedding. Also to include the bits that you can think of right now. If you need some vendors for your wedding day, to ensure you are absolutely getting everything you dreamed of, I have a list of super vendors that I can recommend. Either way, I am always an email or a text message away.

#3

By the time your wedding day will come – we will feel comfortable and like an old friends. I am not just another vendor & I’ll be there to support you and document those epic memories. I would want you to be able to relax and enjoy the day as it goes by. Bare in mind that this is not an “all day long” photo-shoot. Best memories and moments are captured when you forget I’m there.

Let's talk about your wedding

” I am so glad we hired Arthur for our wedding day!! Everything from our phone call to the planning was easy and seamless. The planning really helped guide us with photo combinations for our wedding day. Closer to the wedding we hopped on a call to discuss logistics and Arthur provided suggestions that worked out perfectly. “

F A Q

Your questions answered

My JOURNEY with photography has began back in 2007 (the good year 🙂 ) This is when I first purchased a DSLR camera. I have spend numerous hours with my camera, learning various perspectives and setting adaptations to hard lighting conditions etc… I guess I have learned it “the hard way”. This has given me a unique way to look at things as I was always looking out for being somewhat different, unique, which you can see in my work.

I mainly shoot digital for its reliability and backup, in case something happened. Also I use professional equipment that can survive in different weather conditions. So I am always paranoid when it comes to backing up and having a second copy of a copy, that is a copy of a copy… 🙂
I LOVE film as a hobby.

My style is photo-journalistic and editorial. That translates to my Wedding photography style. I love telling stories!!! Most people don’t love having their picture taken. I get it. Good thing I am a photo ninja! 🙂 My quiet and unobtrusive approach helps everyone relax and allows me to capture real moments.

There is something deeply magical and humbling about the human experience of finding your forever love person. Love should be raw, honest and fearless, and so should your photographs.

Yes! My passport is ready and I love to travel. I love the energy of Ireland, the cliffs, the green. The towns and cities but am just as excited to go replenish my soul juice elsewhere. I have traveled to Destination Weddings and I really enjoy it.

I don’t charge for travel within Ireland. However there would be a fee for Destination Weddings.

Yes! I have both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. I am happy to provide it if the venue asks.

I understand that planning a Wedding is complicated. So, I try to keep my part as simple as possible. I ask that all potential clients to participate in an initial phone/skype call or in-person meeting, during which I am happy to answer all your questions and provide a detailed and accurate price quote. A general guideline is that Wedding Photography is approx. 10% of the overall wedding budget. Of course it will very much vary as some people prefer to invest more in Wedding Photography and some people less. So send me a message and I happy to put together my best estimate.

Of Course! I personally adore doing them. It gives us all a chance to get to know each other and work out all those pre-wedding-photography-jitters. Whether you need the photos for something specific (like a save-the-date card), or you just want some awesome pictures for the heck of it, I think it’s a pretty cool time in your lives and worth capturing. Let’s get creative! I love non-traditional sessions like: at beautiful Ireland Coast Cliffs, in-home sessions, night photography or just doing something you two love doing together.

Once we confirm availability, all we need – is a signed contract and a € 300 retainer fee. The balance is due no later than your Wedding day. Welcome bank transfer or credit card payments, or cash.

I will look after the rest and will send you pre-wedding questionnaire and we will keep in touch through out the process, as I can only provide best service if I get to know you better 🙂

I will send you a private online viewing gallery. You can share the gallery link with anyone you want! Also, I am sending you USB with fully edited high resolution photos and separate folder with resized photos for use on social media. It will take me approx 4-8 weeks to have your photos ready.

Now taking bookings for 2021 & 2022.

Popular dates are gone quick and I shoot limited amount of weddings per year so please do not wait.
