KIND WORDS FROM PAST COUPLES
Nikki + Aidan : THE WESTIN DUBLIN WEDDING : 2019
Thank you so much for the slideshow it is absolutely fantastic! We love it! It perfectly captures the day and we could not be happier with them. With such a short time scale we were planning the wedding I was thrilled to find out that you were available on our day. After seeing your amazing shots at Ciara and Alastair’s wedding, I was so excited to have you capture our day. Granny is always delighted to tell people there are four generations in the family and she was thrilled to be part of the preparation on the wedding morning and she will be delighted with the pictures. You were such a relaxing, calm presence on the day and not to forget your lovely sense of humour. Probably the only anxiety of the day that I perceived I would have was walking down Grafton Street and I really enjoyed it! It was lovely to have that time together taking those pictures after completing the family and bridal party ones. It gave us a lovely few moments to reflect on the day. People ask the question would you love to do it all again and my honest answer is no, as it would never be the same. You encounter such lovely people in the run up to your wedding and on your wedding day and are bowled over by love and good will from family and friends. You have captured this perfectly in our pictures so we can always look back on them and remember the day. Thank you so much!
Fiona + Brian : 2018 : Bellinter House Wedding
The pictures are stunning, we’re blown away by how well you managed to capture the happiness of the day. We were saying some of the photos look like renaissance paintings, the light and the movement in them is so striking!
Sarah + Baz : 2018 : Wicklow Garden Party Wedding
ERIC!! A massive massive thanks for being such a trooper during our slightly chaotic (and hot!) wedding day. Of course, we had the most amazing time, and wanted to say a big big thanks for offering up your time and throwing yourself in so wholeheartedly. You were a pleasure to have around, helped us get over our stage fright in front of the camera, and generally fit right in with the banter and vibe of the day. We are so happy we were able to have you as our photographer and really cannot wait to see how the pics turn out. We will be raving about you to all our friends!! Hope to cross paths again in Wicklow, this time over a pint. Thanks again!! Sarah & Baz
Rose + Stephen : 2018 : Cloughjordan House Wedding
Ahhh, Eric!!!!! It's only bloody brilliant!!!!! Thank you so so much, we are beyond thrilled, and have literally been sat watching it over and over for the past 3 hours!! As has my Mum! Absolutely lovely, from utterly heart touching photos of James & my Dad, to hilarious ice cream shots, and everything in between. Not to mention me and Stevie!! Genuinely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing these wonderful moments from the day, and the lovely joy on so many faces! We couldn't have dreamed of better xx
Maeve + Fionnan : 2017 : Dublin City Wedding

Claire + Ed : 2017 : Virgina Park Lodge Wedding

We shared it with our families and they are just thrilled with the photos too and a few tears where had. Thank you Eric very much :) you were a joy to have on the day and your work is just amazing. Looking forward to see them all which we are in for a treat if the preview is anything to go by!
Aoife + Alexis : 2017 : Castlemartyr Wedding
Thank you!!!!! They are AMAZING!!!! Thank you so much for everything, we are thrilled with them. The photos have been met with RAVE reviews - my family and the bmaids love them. One of the girls even sent me a list of her 10 favourite ones.
Ciara + Peadar : 2017 : Cork City Wedding
Honestly, you have exceeded all of our expectations!! We feel like we have gone back in time. Utterly amazing, every single one of them!! We absolutely love them.
Kelly + Kevin : 2017 : Cork Wedding
Oh my goodness ERIC! Kevin and I just watched the slideshow and it is beyond our expectations. You really went above and beyond here. You captured the day so well, and literally brought our wedding memories back to life for us. THANK YOU! The photos of my mother, and Declan my nephew, plus the kids and Kevin's parents... my great grandparents... I am just in awe and overwhelmed with emotion. These will be forever cherished by our family and friends. I wish I could give you a proper hug and you could see the smiling faces on us both. You've made our wedding day of memories last a lifetime.
Rebecca + Fergus : 2017 : K Club Wedding
You have blown me away... the photos are so amazing! I knew I had got the best photographer I could have wished for but quite honestly you have blown this out of the park!! I have cried the happiest tears watching this all back and I would like to say a big huge thank you for capturing the mood of the day... these photos will stay with us forever.
Caoimhe + Eamonn : 2017 : Bellingham Castle Wedding
Hey Eric! Thanks a million for the beautiful slideshow of images you put together for us. We have been busy showing all our family and friends since we got it! Oh we just LOVE the photos, can't thank you enough, they're absolutely perfect and we can't wait to see the rest of them later today!!
Jonathan + Niamh : 2017 : KClub Wedding
The photos are amazing which we knew they would be. You delivered everything that we expected and so much more. Took you advice and had a beer with Niamh while going through them over the weekend:) Brought a big smile to our face and and even a tear to the eye. Music choice was super too. Thanks for everything and being a gentleman to deal with.
Orla + James : 2017 : Step House Wedding
We want to express our gratitude to you, not only for the amazing photos, but for making us both feel so comfortable on the day. I think it was pretty clear how nervous I was around the camera but you made it so easy and light-hearted. It was a pleasure to have you around the house in the morning and to have you as part of our special day. After receiving the photos we really are amazed at how you seemed to be everywhere and captured the day, the emotions and the details so well without being in anyway intrusive. We absolutely love the natural vibe to the photos and to get to look back on things we missed on the day. I have had it on replay every night!
Christine + John : 2017 : Belleek Castle Wedding
These photos are absolutely stunning! We had the pleasure of viewing your work on our projector on Tuesday and I don't think either of us blinked once as we remained in such awe of your gorgeous work. We both agree that our wedding day couldn't have been captured any more perfectly, and we would like to thank you for being a huge part of our wedding day. These memories are something that will be cherished for the rest of our lives. We are both very eager to share these beautiful moments with our close family and friends.
Paula + Russell : 2017 : Tankardstown House Wedding
We are delighted with the photos. We think they are the best wedding photos we have seen! Thank you! We look forward to seeing the photos in the gallery over the next week or so. We had a great day and we really enjoyed working with you. We are very happy we chose you! If you would like us to write any reviews for you please send us a link and we'll give you 5 stars!
Marianna + Brian : 2017 : Dublin City Wedding
Thank you so much for the awesome snaps! We love them all for so many different reasons! Words can not express how appreciative we are for all your hard work!
Aileen + Christy : 2016 : Cabra Castle Wedding
We took your advice and sat with a glass of wine to watch the slideshow. To say we were thrilled was an understatement. Absolutely overwhelmed with all the special moments you captured on the day. Christy says he has never seen anything like it in his life!! We can't believe how lucky we were to have you capturing our day. I've had so many enquiries about you already since posting photos yesterday. I cannot recommend you highly enough and look forward to seeing you again in June when I'm bridesmaid at Caits wedding in Athlone.
Again thank you so much Eric.
Peter + Shelly : 2016
Thank you so much again for everything and for capturing each and every great moment of our day. Each photo truly brings back great memories, smiles and laughter when we and all our friends and family look at them! We couldn't have asked for more from your photography. You were a pleasure to have with us on the day and barely even noticed your presence most of the time... That includes not noticing you having fun with my shoes outside in the garden :o) From start to finish you were so professional and no detail was over looked.
Joanne + Joe : 2016
We just wanted to say thank you for last Saturday week, we had the best day imaginable and we both are so grateful that your style and presence on the day was exactly what we were looking for. You were great to be around, your personality is infectious. You weren’t intrusive, you were laid back, you put us at ease, and let us get on with our day without noticing you around. You showed great patience with us and with all our guests, and we had so many compliments on how professional and un intrusive you were on the day, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Aisling + William : 2016
Thank you so much for these and for the slideshow. We absolutely loved them. It is very special for us to have the opportunity to relive our day those these shots - I love your photography; it brings you right into the moment. Seeing these makes us homesick but in a good way - we will treasure these. Thank you. Also I would like to say how lovely it was having you there - you are so bright and cheery and make us feel very relaxed. I also loved you humming technique as you moved between the rooms - brilliant.
Martha + Ger : 2016
I'm so sorry we forgot to email you when we gotour wedding album. There was an evening of audible gasps at how lovely it is, followed by a packed schedule of bringing it to show off to friends and family. We totally forgot to give you guys a heads up amidst all that! Thank you so much for everything. From start to finish, working with you and Eric has been an absolute delight. Not a single part of our experience with you hasn't been perfect and lovely. It's very obvious that you both love what you do, and invest so much of yourselves into making sure our experience is perfect. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
Tanya + Patrick : 2016
I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful the slideshow is and how much we adore your work. I have cried every single time I've watched it!! So nice to be able to see how everyone spent the day and the emotions that went along with it. This is a true representation of the day and I think I enjoyed watching this more than the actual day as I could fully take in the outside perspective of it!! I can't believe there is more to come. You are a genius!
Alanna + Tommy : 2016
Eric I just wanted to say thank you so much for our beautiful photos they are just what we wanted you really captured the day as it was so happy with them I couldn't recommend you enough they really are perfect. Thanking you Alanna
Clair + Chris : 2016
Thank you so so much for the amazing photos. We just can't stop looking at them. You captured the day so beautifully. Everyone loved you and were so excited to see the photos you produced. We are going down home to Limerick on Saturday and can't wait to unveil your work! The photos of Lisa's kids and little Harry are so gorgeous, I loved the natural photos of us getting ready and the lovely photos by the lake. Also, the photos with my Dad...and the group shots!! ha, that's probably all them really!! We couldn't have asked for better, we are truly blown away! Thanks for making us feel so at ease and being so lovely to have with us on the day. We will be singing your praises too all our engaged friends and will hopefully be sending some work your way. I hope our paths will cross with you again.
Martha + Gerard : 2016
Sorry for the late reply to this. In fairness, we have good reason - we've spent the past 72 hours watching the slideshow on loop, giggling, corralling friends and relatives and forcing them to do likewise. We're both so, so happy with the photos. We can't get over how beautiful you made everything look. It's not just photography, it's artwork, and the fact that Martha and I are at the centre of it all is hard to believe. Thanks so much! We've spent the weekend repeating our conviction that hiring you was possibly the best decision we made throughout this entire process. Can't wait to see the rest of the pics. Thanks again for everything, you're a superstar.
Sara + Finian
The role of the photographer in your wedding is something special. It's more than just taking photos and making sure you and your loved ones look good–Eric obviously accomplishes this with every wedding he attends. The photographer helps the day move, he creates the pauses, the "time to go"s, the "look here everyone," he sees the moments and creates a story of the day. Eric was all those things and more. We didn't realize what an important role the photographer plays in the wedding day till the actual day. From start to finish, Eric was professional, kind, inquisitive and put us first. He was easy to get a hold of via email beforehand. We planned our wedding from Vancouver, Canada. We met him a week before the wedding to go over shots, meet him in person and get to know him. He got on with everyone at the wedding–even the bossy ones! Everyone complimented us on how relaxed and enjoyable Eric was. It's exactly what you want to hear after your wedding! Afterwards, he sent an email touching base, was very prompt about sending us our slideshow and photos. It's the small things that a photographer can do that just makes everything that much more special. One of my favorite things Eric did was he took us away from the reception for a moment to take a few extra photos. While taking these photos, he told us to talk to each other about the day, reminisce a little and talk about the love we had for one another. With the busyness of the day, those moments were few and far between. I'm going to cherish those moments forever.Tomorrow is two months from our wedding day. And we've watched our slideshow almost everyday since he sent us the link. (which by the way is just as good as a video and more affordable!) Thank you again Eric!
Benadette + Jim
I wanted to thank you personally for your support on the day and calming me when the rain shower got to me, when a brother went missing during the family photo, organizing the choir to play the exit song earlier than planned…etc etc, you were simply the best! I barely knew you were there that morning except when we shared a joke or I needed some words of wisdom. everyone commented on how you helped create a feeling of calm on the morning & the hairdresser, make-up artist, mother, brothers, bridesmaids & kitchen sink were tres impressed :) obviously the photos will be incredible & some of the shots and ideas were amaze & that’s what your so famous for…. but..it is the other qualities you have that helped make my day so special & magical. Thanks so so much.
Sarah + Stephen
I was mailing in response to receiving our wedding photos which as expected, exceeded or expectations, they simply were amazing!! We cannot wait to show them off to our friends and family! I actually couldn't put into words how happy we are that we made the decision to have you join us on our special day, you were so much more than just the "photographer". The early morning trips to Avoca for breakfast, which hey - was a great excuse for us to steal away a couple of hours on our own, we always felt we were meeting a friend rather than meeting a wedding supplier. The morning itself, you arrived with a sense of calm that followed you for the day. It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with you and the highlight of our day was that hour we spent with you up the mountain. Your patience and professionalism in dealing with our family & guests was impeccable. We are eternally grateful. Thank you so so much. Actually, we could never thank you enough.
Elizabeth + Padraig
I cannot thank you enough for your incredible work at our wedding! It was so much fun to have you around, and it’s a bonus that you also take amazing photographs :)
Veleenda + Ciarán
We finally got around to sit down and reflect on things & we just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for being part of our big day two weeks ago & for just being great all around. I was telling Ciarán how you made everything so easy in the morning and that you’ve made everybody feel at ease getting ready! Friends & family were telling us that during the day you’ve been just great on how you just suddenly appeared and were gone without making anybody fell like they’ve to be ‘posing’!! They thought you’re just fantastic. and the best thing was that by the end of the night everybody knew you as “Eric” and not just “the photographer”! Thank you so much for everything!!!
Kirsten + Eoin
It was our pleasure to have you at our wedding, I cannot begin to explain the emotion of the day and your grounding made me relax so much. I really appreciated those 5 mins I had before we left and that was down to you. I could breath. I have heard so many lovely comments about our photographer, everyone felt so at ease with you around. this is just an amazing quality....
James & Una
From the initial introductory meeting, we had a great chat with you – quickly understanding and developing our plans, even coaxing out, with ease, a few plans that we hadn't considered! We knew we had found the person who reflected our exact desire for our wedding day - professional, but with a relaxed, stress-free approach that only comes with experience and a track-record of delivering great photography. Your ability to gather, corral and organize large crowds in seconds with extreme calmness, meant we were completely at ease and never had to get involved in any photography planning on the day – you did it all! In the nicest possible way, we forgot you was there….but have the most amazing photographic evidence to prove otherwise!
We love the final photographs, just amazing and honestly, we are so proud to show them off. You kept us constantly updated and delivered everything on time. Having arranged for the pre-wedding shoot, final album and the parents mini-album, we would highly recommend all of these as superb additions. The pre-shoot was a great time to get to know you more personally, understand the wee few things that are expected from us and helped to relax us in advance of the big day. We would never achieve the quality of presentation and to be honest, with photographs of this level, it would be a disservice to present them as anything less.
So for this and so much more, Úna and I say thank you Eric for making our dream wedding come true! No stress, never any panic, or no request an issue – you captured our day with such professional elegance - nothing was overlooked or no moment lost.
