Real Reviews


You don’t hire a photographer, you get a Katie. I remember the first phone call we had with her and hung up hoping we were cool enough for her to take us on rather than the other way round!

Katie has this wondrous nature where she is inherently intrigued and genuinely cares about her couples – within days of our call she had us on her facebook and her Instagram so she could really figure out who we were and what we were about. We live in London and had one weekend in Borris where Katie made the three hour round trip just to come and say hi. She didn’t need to do this, probably got nothing from it as she already knew the venue but it was such a lovely touch that meant so much to us – we knew we were in great hands.

On our wedding morning Katie walked in and I it was like an old friend had just arrived – at times I forgot she was there to take photos, she was just one of our crew. She captured the morning beautifully, was so invested in my husband and I’s story that she captured things that I don’t think anyone else would have noticed and actually took me from in control and calm to utterly excited!

She’s a girl who’s resourceful, in control, beautifully in charge without being bossy or getting anyone’s back up whilst capturing everything and more. Her eye is wonderful, her manner enchanting – when people 8 weeks later still talk about the wonder that was Katie and how can dance like a good un whilst still snapping away you know you got the best. Her photos are astounding, the biggest issue we have now is working out which ones are our favourites.

As a side note ladies, when my veil flew off seconds and I mean literally the second before we started to walk down the aisle Katie whipped the hair clips out of her own hair and put me back together. This is a woman you not only need in your wedding party but in your life. Thanks Katie, it wouldn’t have been the same without you. 



I'm not sure if I teared up more at the ceremony or watching this slideshow <3

The emotion you captured is still felt looking at these photos. The music in the background is just perfect too!

Adam and I took your advice, cooked a nice dinner, opened some Green Spot whiskey (it was featured at the pub we went out to on our wedding night), and fell in love all over again with the entire day. I loved seeing the photos of the house and what everyone else was up to while I was getting ready --you can almost feel the intense concentration of "what should I write!?" looking at those pictures.

Every set of photos captured such joyous and emotional really gave us a hard task now of picking which ones to print! I am almost tearing up writing this, thinking about the beautiful interactions you captured. We are both so thankful and overjoyed.

My parents also were incredibly impressed by you and your style. They told the story I think at least 3 times now of their wedding photographer and how stiff and mean he was on their day. Knowing they and our other guests were at ease, comfortable, and able to enjoy and laugh during not just pictures being taken but the entire day is simply priceless. Again, thank you.

We are excited to share these with our families and friends! Thank you for also making that process simple and easy.

At this point, thank you seems insufficient to say...We are deeply, sincerely grateful of everything (Skype chats, ease of payment, day-of funs, reviewing/buying photos) you have done for/with us! These are amazing to see immediately in post, and 10, 20, 45 (God-willing) years from now, I know they will still be amazing, beautiful, special to look at and remember.

With hearts full of gratitude and joy,



Planning an irish wedding from America is no easy task. Katie was recommended to us by our venue and boy are we lucky to have had her share our wedding day. From the first skype meeting we knew she was exactly what we wanted. She was prompt with replies, open to share her encyclopedic knowledge of the irish wedding industry and generally just good fun to deal with. Because we were traveling so close to the wedding day we didn’t actually meet until the morning of the wedding. It didn’t matter, we immediately clicked and it was like having an old friend with us. This was so important to us as we had a small wedding of just 25 people. We’ve made a lifelong friend and can’t wait to welcome her to texas when she finally visits - ELIZABETH & HUNTER

They. Are. Fucking. GORGEOUS.

For real, we are so thrilled, they are just beautiful and fun and full of love. 

We laughed and cried together looking at them, it felt like re-living the entire day. My parents adore them too, they are so thrilled.

I never could have imagined liking photos of myself as much as I love them, I can't wait to show them to anybody who will look!

We had the most incredible day and loved working with you, you are absolutely super, we are so glad we asked you to photograph our day.

We want to wish you the very best for the future, no doubt you are going places, cannot wait until you're the most famous photographer in the world and I can be like "omg, she shot my wedding!!" 

Thank you so so sooo much for everything, you are a star!
All of our love and best wishes,


Sorry, we didn't message last night straight away but we were so blown away!!! And just spent the night looking at them over and over. So emotional after seeing them, I think I was so caught up in the day that there are so many moments I didn't see or forgot about and it was so nice looking back on them last night.

I sent the link of the slideshow to a few people who couldn't make the day and they all said they felt like they were there. You timed the music perfectly.

They are all so amazing I don't know how we will narrow it down for an album. 

I wish I could word this better so you'd know just how happy we are with them and grateful to you. 



I find it hard to word how great it is to have Katie photograph your wedding! Our guests are even talking about how lovely she is. From the outset, she’s genuinely interested in your plans and is a great resource for helpful information and planning tips. On the day, she radiates calm and positivity. She manages to keep everyone in order to get those group shots done, while being really lovely to be around. She’s not one of those annoying bossy photographers. She captures all the little details you forgot to tell her you wanted captured! this is because she takes the time to get to know you. the photographs are exactly what we wanted - relaxed, genuine and they reflect the atmosphere of the day. - KATIE & OWEN


We can't say enough good things about Katie.. she was absolutely amazing. Talented, personable, and with a great sense of humour (BONUS!) My now-husband and I travelled to Ireland (from Canada) to wed, and after much research and consideration, we went with Katie as our photographer, and are so delighted that we did. Because it was just the two of us - an elopement of sorts - it was an intimate day, and Katie captured that beautifully. Would highly recommend Katie to anyone looking for a wedding photographer - ERIN & ALAN

Dublin Wedding Photography

Where to even begin! Myself and my husband regularly blubber all over our wedding photographs! Katie did such an AMAZING job, everything we wanted & more! Those little unexpected unobtrusive photos are what makes her so special! We hired Katie pretty much straight after meeting her, in a pub no less haha, I walked out and said to my husband we have to have her I don't care what it costs lol! Photos were the one thing I wasn't will to cut back on & I am so glad we booked Katie! She has felt like our friend rather than supplier & I have to say this really helped the day of the wedding, in just one look she knew exactly what I was thinking & when I needed a break! To all brides out there we just cannot recommend her enough! - MELISSA & DANIEL


Katie is the bomb! If you want the best wedding photos Katie is your go to. Seriously amazing shots and she has such a good eye to capture those special moments. She is also so sound. You know when you just click with someone from the first time you meet? well that is how I felt, she made everyone at ease and to be honest I didn't even know she got the shots she did as she was so discrete. I am so so glad I found Katie and would highly recommend her for your special day. (seriously you would be mad not to choose Katie) - BARBARA & KEN


Katie is a lovely outgoing girl with an excellent sense of humour and the ability to make even the shyest people feel completely and utterly at ease. It was like having another friend around! That being said, she gently kept control of the day - watched for a time and made sure we made the most of our beautiful surroundings. 5 stars are not enough - I'd give quadruple that if possible. We will most definitely recommend you to anyone who will listen! - RACHEL & IAN


Thank you so much for these beautiful, fun, amazing photos of our big day! I could not have imagined the impact you would have on our day not only as our photographer, but also as an adviser, source of moral support, fixer (example: our very eager bridal party in the church), runner of the entire show (seriously) and so much else all along the way. You have boundless energy, talent and exude such great vibes all around. We were amazed at the countless gorgeous shots you captured of a day that will be fondly remembered by [I hope!] everyone there. 

In addition to reliving things I was actually there for, we got to see so much of the stuff we missed out on - particularly the "getting ready" pics which were so relaxed and gave the loveliest glimpse into the lives surrounding us. 

I remember starting our day by chatting with you outside on the balcony that morning and I was so nervous and gnawing on a sausage. I am not sure what happened with my nerves in the hour or two after, but they melted pretty quickly. It's only seeing these pictures that I've realized I was laughing pretty much all day long!

To try put into words Katie, a true artist and lover of her profession! She has a great balance of professionalism while also making you feel relaxed and at ease in her presence! She blends into the background to capture unexpected moments and also let’s herself be known when portraits and requested pictures are needed to be done!

She has a true interest in you as a couple right from the beginning and is ready to help with any of your needs, and try’s to make herself readily available via phone or email which is appreciated greatly in this busy world. - TAMMIE & MARK


Katie Kavanagh is a wizard! We look through our photos in awe. We never even saw her during the day and she somehow has managed to capture all of the usual stuff in the most beautiful way, but then, there's also all of this cool, unexpected stuff that was happening all around us that we now get to laugh (and happy cry) over. Katie is just special, basically. - EIMEAR & LUKE

Mount Druid Wedding

The super fun, and ridiculously talented, Katie shot our wedding and we know we made a perfect choice! We booked Katie while she was still living in Australia. What stood out most of all through Katie's pics, was not only her own unique style but the fact that every set of pictures was unique to the couple in them. Some are devastatingly romantic. Some of vibrant and fun. All are beautiful.

On the day itself, Katie brought a giddiness and excitement that rivalled my own! However, when it came to getting the shots she was a perfect professional.

Katie is fun, genuine and so fricking talented that I basically can't handle it! I would book her a thousand times over! Again and again and again. - HEATHER & DOUG

Wexford Wedding

What an amazing job Katie did! Early that morning, she rocked up with enthusiasm and excitement, and fit in around the wedding party, putting us all at ease. She felt more like a friend than a vendor throughout the day, as she laughed and joked with us, yet never felt like an intruder. She actually made the day even more enjoyable for us. She had a few sneak peaks ready for us the very next day, which was so exciting! The finished photos and albums were absolutely amazing, and there were so many shots we had forgotten about or had not realised she was even there for. Katie is an extremely talented photographer. She captures all the little moments, and her photos are so natural - the laughter and the emotion are all real, and not staged. We could not recommend her highly enough. - ANDY & AOIFE


Katie is not an in-your-face photographer, she captures moments as they happen, opposed to poses. We found her so easy to work with and very professional. We loved all the photos and felt she totally captured the relaxed nature of the day and the family feel we were going for. We think she is a brilliant photographer! - LOUISE & CIARAN


There are not enough stars to rate Katie. Picking Katie as our photographer was the best decision I made in the whole planning process. Katie was a pleasure to have around on the day, so so much fun. If anyone reads this looking for a photographer, you will not be disappointed booking Katie. THE BEST in the business - REBECCA & JOHNNY


It's hard to put into words how happy we are with the images Katie & Kevin captured on our wedding day, but I'll try my best: about 3 weeks after getting engaged I discovered Katie on Instagram and spotted that she'd already shot at the wedding venue we had just booked and decided there and then that Katie was for us - thankfully Katie was available on our date and that was that, our photographer was booked! Easily one of the best decisions we made during the whole process! Katie was a pleasure to deal with in the weeks leading up to the wedding, with lots of helpful advice and kind words and on the day itself was a total joy to have around us! The pictures speak for themselves, Katie captured so much more than we even imagined possible and has given us images that we'll treasure forever! If you're searching for your wedding photographer, look no further! - JULIE & JEFF
