"Hi Darren. Just a quick mail to express our sincere thanks to you for doing such amazing job with our wedding photos. It was amazing to watch the slideshow and we watched it again when we went home. I may have shed another happy tear even! You caught every important moment that was possible, ones we hadn't and didn't even think of. It had to have been my favourite part of the wedding!!! I honestly cannot say thank you enough but I’ll give it a go…..’THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU’!!! Another delighted and extremely happy customer!"
Sarah & Brian


"Darren I've been thinking all week what can I say to possibly thank you for our wedding pictures, & it's just impossible to put into words how happy we are! Since my best friend passed away I'm obsessed with pictures I truly believe if you don't have pictures you have nothing and it's so important to capture memories made, and you managed to capture every single precious moment of our special day! The pictures are just stunning and apart from the ones we posed for we didn't even know you were there! You are absolutely amazing at what you do and we will be forever grateful. We will highly recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you so much!"
Siobhan & Colm


"Darren I don't even know how to properly tell you how much my wedding album means to me. I don't think thank you is even enough. Honestly, picking you as our photographer was the best wedding decision we made, hands down. My album has impressed everyone who has seen it. People have been saying they've never seen that style of album before. You really captured the vibe of the day and portrayed it with such classiness and coolness, I look through it and I can relive the happiness of that day. You are so talented, I am so proud to have had you as my photographer. You are cool, calm, professional, and so nice! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!"
Nicola & Greg


"Darren is not only a consummate professional, he also really cares about the photographs he captures. He made our day less stressful, as his meticulous attention to detail meant we could focus our energies on other aspects of our big day and not worry about the photography. In the run-up to our wedding he was always quick to respond to queries and full of suggestions and ideas. Our advice to couples booking Darren in the future is to listen to what he suggests and you'll thank yourself for it. He has an excellent eye for enhancing your photos by making little adjustments and tweaks. He gets the important shots but he also gets the ones you'd never think of and the moments you forgot or missed on the frantic day. We had three page boys and a flower girl and Darren was very natural in the way he coped with them. They thought he was "cool" and he was very patient and kind with them. He made it fun for them and the photos show that they were really enjoying themselves. Every possible angle was covered in the church and he made absolutely sure all the important family snaps were done outside. It was a no-brainer for us because Darren was everywhere making sure everyone was accounted for, going above and beyond the call of duty! Most of the time we didn't even know Darren was around because he is so subtle in what he does. Looking over Darren's photos was like reliving the day all over again. They are how my wife and I will visualise our wedding for the rest of our lives and we couldn't be happier about that - he did an amazing job."
Robert & Caitriona


Thank you so much for the slideshow Darren, it is amazing, we love it! You have been able to capture the true essence of the day for us and made our memories so vivid and beautiful. You have a fantastic talent and we are the lucky ones to have been able to reap the rewards of it. Thank you for not only be our photographer but for being part of the family on the day."
Elaine & James


"When we got engaged there were seemingly hundreds of decisions to make. The date, the venue, the dress! However one of the things I had known even before I got engaged was that if the big day came then I needed to have Darren Kirwan photograph it. I was lucky enough that he was available as he is deservedly very busy these days, and right from the moment he met me that morning I was put completely at ease. I had every faith in his skill and ability but was wowed yesterday when we saw our photos and I will admit I shed a little tear (a happy tear!). There were so many wonderful moments captured and not just the "obvious" ones - it's the ones in between. That's what I think makes Darren so wonderful as a photographer - it's having the artists eye, doing anything to get "that" shot. Even if you have to get your foot wet in a fountain! And also being like a ninja, in that I have no idea how some of the photos were taken because he must have been in ten places at once and nobody noticed. A big huge thank you Darren. The photography was so important to us because other than memories, the photos are what we will have forever to remind us of our wonderful day. I don't know what else I can say only you have a very special talent and we couldn't recommend you more highly!"
Lorraine & Darragh


"We would highly recommend Darren Kirwan as a wedding photographer. He was so easy to deal with from the moment we booked him. He took the time to get to know us and the style of photos that we like. We wanted a lot of natural photos as well as the usual posed ones and we got exactly what we wanted. Darren just blended into the background on the day of the wedding, he made us feel very at ease and wasn't at all intrusive. Considering I didn't notice him at all in the house that morning or during the wedding ceremony I can't believe he got such amazing shots. We absolutely love all the photos, our only problem is trying to pick which ones to go in the album."
Marie & Phil


"Thanks so much to Darren for making our day so amazing. All our shots were beautiful and we were blown away! So easy going and yet efficient, we couldn't have picked a better photographer!"
Sarah & Bryan


"Brian & I had our wedding in July this year and from the get go Darren Kirwan provided an excellent and thoroughly professional service. We have ended up with some absolutely beautiful photographs thanks to his easy temperament, and uncanny ability to fade into the background and click away unbeknownst to us all! A number of things Darren did on the day stand out; coping with a sometimes shy and tired 4 year old, and even scaling the wall of the church to get a group photo to name but a few! Darren has a great eye for detail and we are completely bowled over by the photographs! Thanks again Darren!"
Una & Brian


"Darren, we went through the wedding photographs and they are absolutely amazing. I think it is the first time in my life I haven't actually criticized myself, or Barry! You made me look and feel like a princess :) I'm thinking of maybe wallpapering the house with the photos they're that good :) If anybody is looking for a photographer I will definitely send them straight to you, no doubt about it! 10/10 x x x Thanks for everything!"
Evelyn & Barry


"Thanks so much Darren for doing our wedding photographs. We were so happy last night seeing them all for the first time. They are absolutely fab and you were brill on the day, everyone said it! You kept us all calm while capturing all the moments of our day and you even fitted in the a few pictures in our local, which have turned out fab! We will have a hard task cutting them down for the album!! :) Thanks again Darren we are so happy with them!"
Olivia & Brian


"Darren having received our wedding pictures, I want to thank you so much for everything. To any couple reading this I would unreservedly recommend Darren as a wedding photographer. He is so professional and you will not be disappointed with his work. Our biggest fear was overkill with the pictures, but I can honestly say that we hardly noticed Darren's presence with the exception of the mandatory posing shots and even they were just fine. Darren is a pleasure to deal with. True gent and absolute professional."
Audrey & Shane


"We are so delighted we chose Darren Kirwan as our wedding photographer, he made the whole day so relaxing and his natural photographs turned out so beautiful, his eye for that potentially great shot is remarkable! Once we had seen the entire collection of photographs we realised photography is all about artistry and without a doubt Darren is a great artist. Our wonderful day was made even more wonderful by a great photographer. Thanks so much Darren for your great work and we can't speak highly enough of you!"
Michelle & Jack


"Darren, thank you so much for the wonderful pictures you took for us on our wedding day! You went above and beyond and my friends and family love all the photos. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We miss Ireland already."
Sarah & Tyler


"Darren Kirwan was our photographer for our wedding, from start to Finish he was a pillar of professionalism and offered us a massive amount of guidance through out the wedding planning process. I could not recommend him highly enough! He scouts out venue's before the big day so he is familiar with the surrounds & is very organised and a pleasure to deal with! On the day he gave out a very relaxed atmosphere & set the tone for the day. We had a slide show played on the day after the speeches & it wowed our guests as well as ourselves, it was a taster of what was to come. He has a natural talent for capturing those special moments that sometimes go unseen! We cant express enough how happy we are with our pictures and he service & the prompt timeline in which the pictures were delivered, we will treasure them forever and for that we are forever grateful."
Diane & Brian


"I just received our wedding pictures and I am speechless! I knew Darren would do a great job but he exceeded all my expectations and then some. He was able to capture every special moment and tell our wedding day story through photography. He got to know each member of our wedding party and incorporated everyone. We planned our wedding from the States and from the first conversation with Darren he was nothing but a supportive resource. He took time to send us vendor recommendations, advice on travel, and basically acted as our eyes in Ireland. Darren, we cannot thank you enough!"
Colleen & Ryan


"Darren Kirwan was more than a pleasant surprise as a wedding photographer. Darren captured the day perfectly. Darren was always around but very unobtrusive and captured not only the mood of the day, but also the spirit of our guests in his candid shots. Many of our guests requested reprints of photos he had taken of them and mentioned that they definitely would use him when they had an occasion for a photographer. We particularly liked the fact that Darren used both colour and black and white shots and presented the final work to us in a beautiful album for our keepsake. Darren’s photos have a way of telling a story. I love to look back at our wedding pictures because it is like reliving the best day of my life all over again. We would use Darren Kirwan again in a heartbeat are more than happy to let the world know how amazing Darren Kirwan is at photography! Thanks, again, for your amazing talent!"
Nicola & Declan


"Darren was an absolute pleasure to work with. We were expecting great things from him but we were just amazed with the exceptional quality of the photos he produced. Every one of the photos were stunning and perfect. From our first meeting Darren was extremely professional, friendly and easy to deal with. He put everyone’s nerves at ease on the morning of the wedding and throughout the day. He was very accommodating to any requirements we had and he made the entire photo shoot thoroughly enjoyable and fun. Many of our guests commented on how good he was and how courteous he was towards everyone. We have already recommended Darren to several couples and will continue to do so."
Claire & Darragh


"Darren Kirwan was the photographer for our wedding. Darren's relaxed and unobtrusive approach on the day was perfect for us. He had our photos planned down to a tee, so even when the weather turned bad, there was no panic and we were still able to get some amazing photos. We were dreading having our photos taken, but Darren made it effortless and to say we were delighted with our photos is an understatement. All the guests commented on his manner, and I would highly recommend Darren to any bride and groom. Thank you so much."
Louise & Mark


"We had Darren as our wedding photographer this September. I would have to say he was absolutely fantastic. Not only was his photography A1 he was very professional and a very calming influence when those nerves would kick in! The only advice I would give is if Darren suggest you try something different, jump at the chance! You will be glad after when you see the shots!"
Siobhan & Jer


"We had Darren Kirwan as our wedding photographer and we couldn't recommend him highly enough highly enough. The photos are absolutely amazing and we will treasure them forever. He visits all venues beforehand so he knows where to take the best shots. He is very calm and patient and puts everyone at ease. He takes such an amount of photos and the best thing is that you get them all on disc afterwards. Both my husband and I and our families thought he was excellent. Thank you Darren."
Adrienne & Tony


"Darren, thank you so much for your help, time, patience and exceptional professional service before, during and after our wedding day. You put together an extremely impressive collection of beautiful pictures for us to enjoy forever, your unobtrusive manner on the day was worth its weight in gold and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have had you as our wedding photographer and will happily recommend you to friends and family."
Deirdre & Colm


"We booked Darren for our wedding and I cant speak highly enough about him. He worked with us on everything from start to finish and the end result has been magnificent. Even our guests have commented on how good he was on the day. He was fantastic! I highly recommend Darren, he has a great eye for the perfect photo and made us feel so relaxed throughout the entire day."
