Couple Shoots, Secret Proposal & Engagement Shoots in Dublin

Engagement Shoot / Couple Shoot / Secret Proposal

A Couple Shoot / Love Shoot or otherwise known as an engagement photo shoot, is an informal pre-wedding shoot arranged before your wedding. Not only is it a great way to get to know me – your photographer, but it totally prepares you for your actual wedding. It’s enjoyable and you quickly have a set of professional photos.

The advantage with an engagement shoot is that you get used to being in front of the camera and you get to know and be comfortable with my informal way of working. This is also your time to experiment and try out a few things and will help you know exactly what you want for your wedding day. It totally prepares you for your wedding photographs resulting in even better wedding images as you are much more relaxed and know what to expect. The time spent on your wedding day is also utilised more efficiently as you know exactly what to do so you start your wedding day photo session running. You can then use the photos from the Love Shoot on your wedding invites or on your wedding website if you wish. Expect to receive approx 70 to 80 images from your shoot in high res & print ready.

I travel to you for your photo shoot to a location of your choice. That could be your home, a local park, beach etc… It’s up to you…! You can also choose what sort of look you want. For example, most people go casual, some go a bit more formal and some a bit of both. Again, it’s your choice and it’s something that we can discuss beforehand.

Need some inspiration for a location…..?

Killiney Hill – Dublin

FYI… My most popular location for proposal & couple shoots in Dublin is Killiney Hill which is just on the outskirts of the south side of the city. Easy access by car or train.

Howth Head – Dublin

Howth Head is another very popular location for a Secret Proposal. Like Killiney Hill it is also on the outskirts of the city and is easily accessible. However, it is more exposed to the weather & offers less shelter than Killiney Hill.

The Wicklow Experience

The Dublin mountains and beautiful County Wicklow are right on the outskirts of Dublin allowing incredible photographic opportunities.

We have mountains, valleys, streams, rivers, ancient buildings, lakes, forests, small twisty Irish roads and even a deserted mining village….! We are spoilt for choice but ultimately we will end up with amazing photos of the 2 of you in beautiful countryside with amazing views. Return home with photographic memories of a lifetime to share with family and friends.

This is for clients who have their own rental car (or I can collect & drop off from a local train station).

I have 2 options available. If you are unsure what to choose, best to schedule a quick Zoom chat with me and I can explain the differences.

As with all my other shoots, I normally try and schedule these for the evening time if possible when the light is better and where there is the chance of a sunset.

Why I believe Wicklow is the best elopement or engagement photo location in Ireland

Here, I’m just going to talk about my favourite and in my opinion the best location in Ireland for an engagement shoot or elopement. It’s also my most popular location with visitors to Ireland – Wicklow. Otherwise known as ‘The Garden of Ireland‘ Wicklow is located just outside of Dublin. Continue reading.

Cliffs of Moher Engagement/Proposal Shoots – Updated 2022

Photoshoots at the Cliffs of Moher are no longer possible

Unfortunately I no longer offer photoshoots at the Cliffs of Moher.
This is entirely due to recent restructuring works along the cliff path. These changes have now made it impossible to access the cliff area that is necessary in order to achieve the photographs with the iconic backdrops that you see on my portfolio & blog. It’s a shame but regrettably, this is now the reality.
However, Ireland is a spectacular country and there are always alternatives. Check out one of my most popular locations for couple shoots –
