Wedding & Portrait Photographer

I am a Galway based wedding photographer & I like to consider myself as having a fresh & modern approach to wedding photography, I offer wedding packages with optional add-ons for wedding albums which are hand made in Italy by GraphiStudio, a second assistant photographer option and I am meticulous about the photo editing process & image quality, When photographing weddings, I'm very much hands off, I document the natural events that occur throughout your day. I don't fuss, I don't stress, I simply capture your day in the best light possible and ensure your day flows along according to the predetermined timeline, so we can get you back to your guests as soon as possible. 

Booking a wedding photographer is not just for one day, it's a complete service from the pre-wedding meeting, right through to the delivery of your fully edited photographs, the album design process and finally the delivery of your custom designed wedding album. You can expect to be in communication with me from 4 weeks prior to your wedding day when we have an in-person meeting, to about 6-8 weeks after your wedding date when your final products are delivered. I'll advice you on your days' timeline and take control on the day to ensure your day flows along as smoothly as possible, leaving you to enjoy your day with family & friends. I'd love to hear from you if you are interested in my packages & pricing details, to make it easier to get in touch, you may use this wedding contact form.

I have worked directly with many Irish hotels & bridal boutiques to photograph styled wedding shoots for marketing campaigns, have been teaching photography for many years and host monthly beginner photography workshops in Galway, I'm thankful that my workshops have been highly reviewed and are rated as one of the best in Ireland. 

Taking pride in offering clients the type of images they are looking for, I believe that it’s one thing to take pictures, but it’s another to stage, light & edit them to their full potential. Customer service, image quality & presentation of your final product are paramount to each & every shoot.

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.

Kind Words | "The detail and quality of his work is simply flawless"

Gerard photographed our Wedding on the 24th of June 2017 and we could not be happier with our wedding photographs. The detail and quality of his work is simply flawless. Gerard is very professional, confident and 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 how great Gerard was; his courteous manner and how he was always around to get the perfect shot. He captured our wedding perfectly, every little detail was documented to treasure as precious memories forever.

Gerard’s manner put the entire bridal party at ease, everyone felt comfortable and relaxed and this translates in the wonderfully natural shots 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 – they will forever bring back wonderful memories of our special day and for this we are truly grateful. We would highly recommend Gerard to other couples looking for an amazing photographer. You won’t be disappointed.
