Finest albums and the best quality for my clients


My aim is to ensure that I capture all the fun from your wedding day with the minimum of intrusion.

David Duignan

I’m a professional Dublin wedding photographer and I shoot weddings and elopements all over Ireland and abroad

Specialising in modern documentary style wedding photographs using mainly natural light, I’m here for clients who appreciate professionalism, high quality images and albums.

I’m part of a community of the best wedding photographers in Ireland who really mean what they say about keeping it natural. My wedding reportage style covers everything from the excitement and the details of getting ready that morning, through to the emotional ceremony, some quick natural portraits of the two of you (generally a maximum of 20 or 30 minutes away from your guests), some formal family portraits and to your guests enjoying your day. For the most part you and your guests won’t even notice I am there. My style and approach is to go with the flow and therefore your photos are spontaneous, authentic and right in the moment.

Photography that is natural, relaxed & in the moment

Your wedding day is your day and I’m there to capture it as it unfolds. I let you enjoy your day while I capture candid shots and special moments of you and your guests enjoying every bit of your celebration.

Your wedding photography – it’s about keeping it real & honest

It’s about photographing the reality of your wedding day – what is there and what is happening in a creative and unobtrusive way. I’m not about long and elaborate photoshoots taking you away from your guests for extended periods of time. My goal is to capture unique and authentic photographs of your wedding that tell your story through natural documentary photography using natural light with an artistic and creative style.  My approach is friendly, relaxed, focused on being discrete and which seeks to put you at ease so that you enjoy your big day with no fuss.

No matter where in Ireland or Europe you are thinking of getting married, I can be there. So if you’re looking for elopement or luxury wedding photographers in Ireland or a destination wedding photographer, feel free to get in touch.
