Choosing the right wedding photographer for you...

Your wedding day experiences are created with you in mind, I get to know each couple pre wedding so on your wedding day, I can be your friend, your mentor, manage your schedule & bring out the very best in you both. My greatest hope is that your wedding photographs will bring back the emotions you felt, the excitement, the butterflies & the laughter, to craft a wedding album that tells the story of your day in the most natural way possible.

The experience I offer my couples is based on a mutual goal to ensure your wedding day is the best it can be, to relax you behind the cameras & to document the natural & beautiful moments that unfold as a result. While my job is described as a "wedding photographer", I consider myself more importantly to be your storyteller, someone who guides & encourages you so that you forget the formalities of your wedding day, & focus on the love you have for each other.

Wedding photography experience with gerard conneely photography

I have a fun-loving & relaxed approach to photographing a wedding, above all that’s most important to me. At the same time, you won’t find me sitting around drinking tea, I’ll mange your days’ timeline & schedule & have you where you need to be, when you need to be there.

It’s your day, your love story, & my end goal is always to ensure you spend as much time with your family & friends as possible.

I’ll guide you through your photography related pre wedding preparations & provide tips & guidance on your day to ensure my cameras see you in your best light.

I’ll manage each step of the way providing a complete service from your pre wedding meeting, right through to the delivery of your fully edited photographs, the album design process & finally the delivery of your images printed in a custom designed wedding album.

The majority of what I photograph is documentary in nature, photographing natural unaware moments of you both as well as your family & friends.

I endeavor to infuse your images with my own elegant style of photography, to capture the moments you are part of as well as the moments you may not get to see, with a view to telling the story of your day in a handmade custom designed Italian wedding album.

Review of Wedding Photographer Gerard Conneely Photography

Kacey & Alan

"Ger went above and beyond our expectations, we were coordinating a wedding from another country, but Gerard was extremely responsive, helpful & thorough during the entire process. My husband and I both dislike having our photos taken but somehow Gerard managed to make the process painless and put us both at ease. Our wedding album is nothing like we have seen before, it was stunning and is a beautiful way to remember our most perfect day!"

Deirdre & David

"Choosing Ger to be our wedding photographer was a really easy decision. Having seen a photoshoot that he did in the G hotel, I fell in love with his photographic style & then when I met him we instantly clicked. I was so impressed by how hard he worked on the day, from keeping me calm to ensuring everything ran to schedule & our photos completely exceeded our expectations. Ger’s attention to detail is impeccable, he is such a great guy and a true professional. Thank you so much Ger for our fabulous photos which we truly cherish."

Amy & John

"The detail & quality of his work is simply flawless. Gerard is very professional, confident & creative in his work, he knew exactly what we wanted and had many great ideas that made our wedding album spectacular. Our guests commented on Gerard's courteous manner & he put the entire bridal party at ease, everyone felt comfortable and relaxed and this translates in the wonderfully natural images he captured. We cannot thank you enough Gerard for all your hard work and advice & we never imagined that we would have such fabulous wedding pictures."

Review of Wedding Photographer Gerard Conneely Photography Glenlo Abbey

Larissa & Ben

"Ger is such a professional, despite getting ready in a small house you would have barely noticed he was there, however he managed to capture the most wonderful images! He is very flexible with what you want and adapts to the circumstances on the day. We received our photos at Christmas and was the best present we could have received! I would highly recommend Gerard..."

Wedding photography  at Dromoland Castle Review by bride and groom

Nicola & Chris

"My husband and I recently got married at Dromoland Castle, and Ger and his assistant photographer were absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the entire day. He was extremely organised, prompt, and fun to work with. He guided the day with a timeline to stay on track, while still being respectful to bride & groom time with family and guests. His style is modern but classic with a flare!"

Hi, I'm Gerard, an experienced wedding photographer & photography teacher. I photograph weddings throughout Ireland & I'm based in Co. Galway in the west of Ireland.

I'd consider myself to be a people person, I know how to bring out the best in my couples & I take what I do very seriously, but you would never think so when working with me.

I've been photographing weddings for 6 years; my style is very much documentary in nature & I’ve found over the years the best way to capture beautiful moments is to let them occur naturally. Many love stories have unfolded in front of my cameras and it truly is an honour when a couple places their trust in me to document their day.

While some of my couples live only a few miles away, others plan their wedding from abroad & I place great emphasis on taking care of my couples both pre & post wedding. If you like the idea of a photographer who will guide you through each step from the pre-wedding meeting, the day itself & right through to delivering your printed story in an Italian handmade album, I'd love to hear from you...
