Galway Wedding Photographer

My name is Gerard Conneely and I am a Galway wedding photographer. I often refer to my wedding photography style as fresh and modern, a large portion of wedding day coverage will be documentary in style while I also like get creative with lighting and composition to add a touch of elegance to wedding photos. I strive to capture the important moments with as many natural images as possible. I love to visit a mixture of locations, working quickly before moving on to the next which adds variety in the final set of images & wedding album pages. Couples have the options to choose photography only wedding packages as well as album packages.

The advantages of a wedding photographer team

Working with an assistant second photographer brings many advantages including the ability for us to cover both the groom & bride preparations at seperate locations, an extra pair of eyes capturing those candid moments and when my assistant second photographer is not shooting, she is assisting me with lighting allowing me to get those more creative images that I love to produce for my brides. I remain the primary photographer on your wedding day and my second shooter captures images from the background, you certainly won't have two photographers giving direction, the little direction that is provided, is only by myself.
