We have just received our photographs from Yvonne from our wedding on 7th February in hotel Doolin….I’m lost for words and can not stop looking through them. Yvonne was so professional throughout the whole day but made us feel so at ease. My husband was dreading any kind of pictures leading up to the day but after his first meeting with Yvonne and pictures on the day, he did not stop talking about how fab she was and how at ease she made all the boys feel especially on the morning of the wedding!yvonne met with us just a handful of days before the wedding as we live in the UK and went out of her way to come and see us on a Sunday evening which I felt was beyond the call. On the morning of the wedding she made us feel so relaxed and comfortable, it didn’t feel like we were being photographed at all and she worked with all the ideas we had and wanted to try a capture….even embracing the wind and rain of the beautiful Doolin pier to try and get us what we wanted!i cannot recommend Yvonne enough, and all the wedding party still comment on how amazing she was on the day! Thank you so much from myself and Ashley, you helped to make it a day to remember and we have the photographs to cherish for the rest of our happily married lives!x

We had Yvonne as our photographer at our wedding on 5th January 2019 in Doolin. I would absolutely recommend Yvonne. She is just so professional and is amazing at what she does. We met up with her before the wedding and straight away i knew she was the right person. She knew exactly what she was doing. Gave us options of where we could have our photos taken and made recommendations of where based on her experience was best for photos. She made the whole thing seem easy and we had such a great time with her taking our photos! When she was at my house the morning of the wedding, she fitted straight in. You wouldn’t even know she was there! Yvonne also had our photos completed and given to us within a month! Thank you Yvonne!

Yvonne was fantastic to work with. She was so helpful and friendly and she is so patient. Nothing was ever too much trouble for her and she was so helpful when it came to picking a place to do our photos. She helped us pick an amazing place for our photos. We can’t say enough about her. She is so down to earth and professional. She was fantastic on the day and didn’t panic about time or anything. The pictures came out amazing. We are absolutely delighted with them. We would highly recommend Yvonne and we can’t say enough about how great she is. Thank you so much Yvonne for making our day prefect and for taking amazing pictures. Thank you for being so patient with the bridesmaids dress. We are still laughing about it.

I cannot say enough about Yvonne – she was so friendly and easy-going when we met her, gave us loads of helpful wedding advice, and really helped us with the planning! On the day itself, she was chilled out, got on great with every single person, and we had a great laugh, the craic was brilliant! Really put us at ease. Another great point is Yvonne is great with small kids – a huge bonus when taking family photos! We knew the photos were going to be spectacular, but we couldn’t be happier with what we got – the only problem now is picking out for the album, they are all amazing! Thanks for everything xxx
Coty and Elizabeth
We planned a destination wedding to Ireland and Yvonne was recommended by our planner, and I couldn’t have imagined a better person to capture our day. From the moment she showed up, she was polite, professional and completely out of our way….and she captured such intimate moments and the smallest of details that made a world of difference.She made my wife and I feel completely at ease and comfortable. Not to mention she was funny as hell and an absolute sweetheart to work with. My family has been raving about her even when we returned stateside! I would recommend Yvonne to anyone that wants their moments to be captured in such a manner that you will be amazed everytime you look at them.
My wife already wrote a review for Yvonne, but 5 stars just simply isn’t enough to express our gratitude towards Yvonne and her talent. As someone with multiple photographers in my family, I can reassure you that Yvonne passes all expectations you could possible have, with ease. Many of the reviews I’ve read speak to her ability to put people at ease, it seems like a cliche compliment, but it’s true. I don’t even believe it’s intentional, she is just a warm, comforting person to be around. You can see her work on here and her website, it speaks for itself, and our pictures are no exception. We could not be happier with our pictures or our experience. We feel very fortunate to have had Yvonne with us on our big day, and I have no doubt that you will feel the same.

We were lucky enough to have Yvonne as our wedding photographer when we married at Hotel Doolin on Easter Monday. Both of us are a photographers nightmare in that we hate having our photograph taken! Yvonne however was the answer to our prayers, she actually made the part of the celebration we were both most hesitant about enjoyable. She is so warm, has a fantastic sense of humour and is so good at what she does that by the end of the day we actually felt like she was one of our guests!! Importantly we also loved the end product.
Thank you so much Yvonne for helping to make the day so very special and for providing us with memories we actually enjoy looking at….you are a diamond!

Yvonne made planning my wedding from Florida very easy in the photography side of things! I met with her a few days before my wedding to go over last minute details and show her some inspirational photos! Being a hairstylist I hate when people bring me photos and want it to look “exactly” like the photo when the circumstances aren’t always the same as the person in the photo. I was that annoying person pulling up photos from Pinterest, and Yvonne went out of her way to
make sure I got very similar photos that were important to me. Thank you Yvonne! You are so kind, helpful, and a fantastic photographer!
Charlene and Mike
It was an absolute pleasure to have Yvonne photograph our wedding. A truly talented lady, Yvonne was great fun and made us all feel at ease. Thank you so much Yvonne for playing a huge part of our special day by capturing our photos, we will be forever grateful.
Samantha and Thomas
Yvonne was amazing on our wedding day. Straight away I felt at ease with her – in the best possible way we actual forgot she was there sometimes, that’s how unobtrusive she was on our day.
The pictures we got from Yvonne are absolutely stunning, our day was captured perfectly. Thank you again!Sam
Patricia and John
Yvonne was recommended to us by close friends and we are so grateful that they did! Yvonne was the perfect combination of professional and easy going – she slotted seamlessly into our day right from the start and perfectly captured all the special moments. She is not only a talented photographer, but also a lovely, comforting presence. We are delighted with all our photos, especially those of the moments that we missed. Now we just have to decide which ones to frame! Thank you very much Yvonne!
Karena and Owen
We chose Yvonne for our special day as we had heard so many wonderful things about her and she lived up to all of them. She was professional, friendly, efficient and very very patient from the minute we first met!
Living in Wales and organising a wedding in Ireland was a task in itself but she made it so much easier for us. We could not be more thankful. She put me at ease the days before it and got rid of my anxieties. She took fantastic pictures in the house on the morning of the wedding fitting it with the family easily and dealing with the chaos that is a bride.
Receiving the finished product earlier than expected so we could start our thank you cards was, again, above and beyond what she needed to do.
I could not recommend Yvonne enough to anyone planning for their big day or any celebration in life that you want to capture.
She goes above and beyond the call of duty!

Marissa and Ryan
Ryan and I can’t thank you enough for capturing our day. You have a unique ability to capture personalities on print!! Our pictures have been posted all over already. As we move forward, we are so grateful to remember this day so vividly it brings a tear to our eyes. We wish you the best and thank you again!

Kerrie and Andrew
We hired Yvonne for our wedding and we really can’t say enough great things about her. From our first meeting we were put so at ease and she listened to everything we wanted for our special, we had a good laugh along the way which is so important when everything is so stressful.
The pictures took my breath away and were absolutely stunning they will treasured forever!!
Thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart for capturing our most happiest day xx
Jessica and John
The photos are amazing, from the first time I emailed Yvonne she was so helpful and happy to help us any way she could, planning a wedding from Australia wasn’t easy and Yvonne made it very easy, she knew exactly how to get the flower-girls attentions even when the little one was stubborn . I could not recommend anyone better to hire for your wedding, Yvonne made the day so enjoyable and we will always be thankful for the photos she managed to capture.
Thank you so much.
Nicole and Liam
I was so lucky to have chosen Yvonne to capture our Wedding Day!! From start to finish I could not fault her in any way. I am a massive photo person, I love photos ! Love having memories to look back at and I had loads of ideas that I wanted to try out on the day which Yvonne had no hesitation to try out for me.
We had our hyper active Nephew as our Page Boy and bless him he cannot sit still but Yvonne was amazing with him !! She made the family photos a game for him to take part in so he was not running off and missing from the important photos!! We have received our Album after careful choosing of photos, mostly by Yvonne herself ! I only changed a couple !! Yvonne is so professional yet so approachable that i felt comfortable sharing any ideas or issues I had with her. I could not recommend Yvonne enough!!!
Joni and Zach
Great photographers can take ordinary objects or ordinary people and place them in such a way that make an extraordinary scene. They do so by knowing their subjects and how to capture them in their finest moments. They must know the physical and cultural landscape and must understand how to make the bride and groom feel comfortable enough to be themselves. Yvonne is a great photographer and really nothing less than a master of her craft. Not only did she take us to some of the more beautiful places we saw on our two weeks in the country but she was really fun to be around, which is important considering we spent several hours with her. Prior to the big day she made herself available for Skype sessions, several email correspondences, and a face to face meeting the evening before our wedding. Yvonne is professional, personable, and very passionate about her work. That passion is reflected in every photo. Thank you Yvonne for capturing the moments that Zach and I will cherish forever.
Joni and Zach.
DACE AND JOSEPH
When we first spoke to Yvonne a sense of calm descended upon us and we immediately realised that she was the photographer that we wanted at our wedding. Reviewing her website and Facebook pages cemented our decision, Yvonne is a classy, modern photographer. Her local knowledge, wisdom and direction proves invaluable on the day. She kept us on schedule yet managed to interject a quick witty comment at just the right moment, thus keeping the whole crowd engaged and entertained. When we received our photographs we were absolutely thrilled. Every time we look at them we re-live our wedding day. She captured the moments as they happened in the most natural way possible!!!!
Yvonne is a fantastic professional, we highly recommend her.
Dace and Joe.
EMILY AND JAMES
Yvonne – James and I just wanted to Thank You again for our amazing wedding album. One of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding was choosing you as our wedding photographer….we cannot express how grateful we are to you for all of the stunning photographs you captured on our ‘Big Day’.
Our family and friends were thrilled by the beautiful photographs you took and the album itself is simply stunning. When you take into consideration that our wedding was late in the day (and subject to a number of delays out of our control) it’s amazing that you still managed to capture all of the images/poses/locations we’d requested (as well as many others!).
We love that you also took some fantastic ‘fun’ photographs as well as those taken when we didn’t even notice. Not only you were you a talented photographer but also such a kind and generous person – exactly what a frantic bride needs on her ‘big day’. Thank you for keeping me sane/calm on the day – your kind/comforting words made all the difference and put me at ease – well above and beyond the call of duty on your part but hugely appreciated. I’ve heard some horror stories in the past of ‘bossy’ photographers and you were anything but, so lovely to work with and yet you still managed to get everyone moving/going in the right direction which was critical (given the late timing of day) – thanks to you things ran so much smoother than they might otherwise have done.
Thank you also for fielding/answering our many, many questions/queries and requests ahead of the big day itself – it was so comforting to have you on board and know that no request we had was too big/small and that we were in good hands. You are a hugely talented photographer as well as a wonderful person. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wishes to have a talented and personable/very likeable photographer for their ‘Big Day’.
DONNA AND GREG
Hi Yvonne, I just wanted to thank you for being our fantastic photographer on our special day! Your calming influence and willingness to help with everything- including being chief dress straightner was brilliant.
You went above and beyond for us including carrying out my suitcase from the hotel and carrying around a hairbrush.
You put everyone at ease, while taking photos even giving directions which helps greatly – as some of us (me) are not naturals in front of the camera!!
The day goes by in a whirlwind and having these photos to look back on is lovely.
For anyone who is looking for a photographer to capture their special day. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. Your friendly, approachable and professional service is what any bride and groom hopes for when they begin looking for a photographer.
Thank you so much
KATE AND TOMMY
Hi Yvonne, just wanted to say a huge thank you for the album and all the fab pictures!! We love them, feels so surreal now, its great to have these pictures to bring it all back. Thanks so much for your patience, your professionalism, your advice and for making it all run so smoothly. You got fabulous pictures and it didnt take all day, which i know the lads loved!!
Thanks so much again! We really enjoyed working with you, and are delighted with the results.
KRISTINA AND JENNY
We cannot begin to say enough about Yvonne and her photography. Jenny and I live in the US and planned our wedding with our closest family in Ireland. We contacted numerous photographers in and around Ireland. Yvonne stood out to us even in email communications so we knew we had to go with her. She made everything extremely easy, meeting at the site a few days before and then on the day. She was kind, funny, and professional making a comfortable atmosphere when not being used to having pictures taken of yourselves-All of the things that a couple could possibly ask for in their biggest day’s photographer. We came back from our Honeymoon and had our photographs ready for us, as well as the mailings on the way to us in the US. Each piece of the dealings with Yvonne were flawless. Since her photography we are constantly told that our photographs look like ones from a magazine etc.
Someone at Irelands Wedding Journal even felt that her pictures were amazing and since have published an online article on Jenny and I, due to Yvonne’s amazing talent. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone needing photography services.

AISLING AND VINNIE
Living in New Zealand I began to plan our wedding which was to take place in Ireland!! I found Yvonne’s work online as I was frantically looking for a wedding photographer. Honestly her photographs just made me cry. They were so natural and evocative and real…..exactly how I had wanted to capture our day. I emailed Yvonne immediately and we took it from there. It was so beyond easy.
Yvonne met us on a trip home in January and again just before the wedding and made the whole process so simple. On the day Yvonne was just fab…..she was just part of the wedding party…we laughed and joked and generally had fun. Vinnie and I went on honeymoon and arrived home to the most incredibly beautiful wedding pictures. Again I cried!!!
Every time I look at the pictures I remember that moment….there isn’t a single picture I wouldn’t frame and display. The only negative I would have to say about Yvonne was when it was all over I felt like I’d lost a friend. Honestly I can’t recommend her highly enough….and have done many times since.
Thank you so much Yvonne x x x
SARAH AND MICHAEL
Just a little note to thank you so much for the wonderful photos of our wedding day, I can’t believe one person managed to catch so much throughout the day. From the minute you arrived you just fitted right in to the total chaos and went about your work without us even noticing you were there (that’s a good thing!).
Thanks for being part of the craic but also reminding us that we needed to get moving and still managing to get to the Church before us to catch some shots of the groom and his family before we arrived. The shots of everyone leaving the church were a lovely surprise, we didn’t even notice you taking them but they meant we have a snapshot of almost all our guests.
Thanks too for making us stop and do the posed photos, we may have been reluctant at the time but it’s great to have them now. The whole family have enjoyed looking through the photos and they’ve prompted many a smile and more than a few laughs.
Thanks so much for being part of our day and giving us such great photos to remind us of the ups and downs.
DANIELLE AND TOM
My husband and I flew to Ireland, and arranged to have Yvonne photograph our ceremony. She was quick to contact us via email, and gave us suggestions as to what would be the best package for us as it was just Tom and I without any family. When I met Yvonne, I instantly felt comfortable with her as if I was reuniting with an old friend.
She was professional and thorough, and made sure to get the certain shots we wanted. I don’t like my pictures taken, but she made it fun and effortless. When we received the pictures, we were delighted!!
Her journalistic style captured our enchanting day perfectly.

SAMANTHA AND JACO
Thank you so much again for the wonderful job you did capturing our special day in Doolin! We knew right away after seeing your website that you were the perfect photographer for us. We were a little nervous at first since we had to do everything long distance from the US, but you were so helpful through it all.
After meeting with you the day before our ceremony, any nerves we might have had about the whole process were completely gone. You knew exactly what we were looking for in pictures and were even willing to battle the elements to give us what we wanted! None of the poses felt forced or unnatural, and we absolutely love all of the candid pictures from the ceremony.
You captured wonderfully the dramatic beauty of the coast and the small town charm of Fisher Street. Our day really could not have been more perfect, even with the clouds threatening through most of the ceremony and after. Friends and family continually comment on our pictures and say how incredibly beautiful they are- we couldn’t agree more! A thousand times thank you for giving us spectacular keepsakes of our special day!!
