Outstanding wedding photographer
Shea is such a kind, caring man. From day one, Shea was so unbelievably professional and friendly with myself and Brian. Shea was recommended to us for his great work. We met up with Shea (before Covid) and went through his work styles with him, what we loved and what we hoped for. He was so accommodating. We booked Shea for our wedding which was August 22nd 2020, which we are so thankful that went ahead. Shea spent the upcoming weeks towards the wedding on phone calls and zoom meetings with us reassuring us that everything will be ok. On our wedding day, Shea was cool and calm!! He captured our day so beautifully, got every photo that we had originally asked for, was able to have the crack with our guests and got some amazing pictures behind the scene without us even realising he was taking them. For days and even weeks after our wedding, we had guests talk about how lovely our photographer was, and how professional he was at his job. We have just received the most outstanding wedding album just in time before the lockdown! We cannot believe the detail of this album. We are blown away.. Shea you went over and beyond for us on our wedding day, our pictures we will cherish forever, and we will always be thankful for you and your amazing work. 10/10 from us! Thank you so much, Love, Michaela and Brian Friel x

Fantastic photographer
Just back from seeing our Wedding photos and we’re in love with them all. Shea has been amazing from the moment we booked right through to the big day. He was so organised at every stage! We loved the images from our engagement shoot we weren’t surprised that we loved all the wedding images too. He even got my hubby to smile....#miracleworker. We can’t wait to choose our album photos and see them in print although I don’t know how we’ll be able to leave ones out! I would without a doubt recommend Shea to everyone, he’s such a gentleman and an amazing photographer!! X

Thanks so much again Shea
We can’t thank Shea enough for all his hard work, from the engagement shoot to our wedding day. We felt very at ease with him from the start(both of us aren’t big fans of getting our picture taken!). Shea captured lots of pictures on our day and we had our usb pen with every picture exactly 4 weeks after the wedding. Everyone who attended the wedding loved the engagement photo and there were able to leave messages on the border of the picture. It takes pride of place in our home. Can’t wait to get our album! Thanks so much again Shea!
