Emily and Rob thanks a lot Muckross Park Hotel
Mícheál and Marc from Micheál O Sullivan Photography shot our wedding in Killarney and on 10 August 2019.
Having been recommended to us by just about everyone we spoke to about weddings in the area! From the moment we met Mícheál for our engagement photo shoot, we understood why everyone is so keen to recommend him.
He put us instantly at ease, completely understood what we were looking for from our wedding photos (not too many formal, posed shots) and was keen to accommodate any specific requests we had (eg coming out to the Dingle Peninsula to take the engagement photos).
We loved the engagement photos, and the photos from our actual wedding day have blown us away.
Mícheál and Marc really captured the fantastic atmosphere of the day. On the day, they were quick and efficient, recognising that as much as we wanted great photos, we also were keen to join our friends and family to celebrate!
Mícheál really knows his stuff, and we felt completely comfortable leaving it in his hands to recommend where to get our photos taken and how to go about getting them all done as quickly as possible.
All in all, we couldn’t be happier and definitely can add our names to the long list of people recommending
Micheál O Sullivan Photography!
Thanks so much,
Emily and Robert Wyse Jackson
Where do I begin?! Booking Micheál as our photographer for our wedding, was a decision we definitely don’t regret!!
Micheál is great at what he does and is a true professional. He listens to what kind of pictures you would like, and he captures all those shots, as well as many many more.
Micheál also has a fantastic way of being able to relax the bridal party, but yet at the same time being able to keep them all in check, while the photos are been taken!
He has a great ability to get the shots done in record time, and you are back celebrating with your guests before you know it!
We would highly recommend Micheál to anyone who was considering a wedding photographer.
Special mention to Marc, our videographer, who worked seamlessly with Micheál, and got fantastic drone footage of our day.
Thanks again guys,
Katie and Aodhan
My husband and I would highly recommend Mícheál, after he shot both our engagement and wedding photographs. We were anxious in the lead up to the engagement shoot as neither of us would be comfortable being the centre focus but we needn’t have worried.
From the minute we met Mícheál he put us at ease. We throughly enjoyed the shoot and we got some fabulous natural shots.
Some of which we used on a welcome note to our guests on the wedding day itself. Not only was he extremely professional and talented, he was easy to work with and put the entire bridal party at ease on the day itself.
My husband and I chose to do a ‘first look’ on the morning which was no problem at all to Mícheál to accommodate and make happen for us. He took on board everything we asked of him and nothing was too much trouble.
All of our guests commented on how friendly and unobtrusive he was on the day. We are delighted with the amazing, high quality photographs we have received and we cannot thank him enough for capturing our big day. We would highly recommend him to anyone considering having him as their photographer for their special day.
We had heard many good reviews of Mícheál’s work from other couples we know.
Looking through his and other photographers’ portfolios of work, we were drawn to the natural style of Mícheál’s photography which seems to perfectly capture the unique essence of each wedding day he shoots.
So when we contacted him and he was available, we had no hesitation in booking him for our special day.
Mícheál arrived at our homes on the morning of our wedding, quickly put everyone at ease and captured the moments without any fuss. We hardly even realised he was there!! As we had a November wedding, Mícheál worked with great efficiency in getting the family pictures taken before we all froze and the light faded!
Thank you Mícheál for your part in our wedding day and for capturing so many memories on camera. You made the whole experience so relaxed and effortless.
We have no hesitation in recommending Mícheál to any other couple.
We booked Micheal because we were so impressed by his previous work and I also wanted someone who was from Kerry and would know the best places for photos! We were thrilled when he told us he was available.
We were both unsure of how the pre-shoot would go as neither of us would be overly comfortable with that kind of thing but Micheal put us at ease straight away making us laugh all the way through. When we got those photos back we knew we had made the right decision and had no worries about how our wedding photos would turn out.
On the morning of the wedding Micheal was great – he took the mad house in his stride and made us all feel comfortable. We had great laughs through it all. He knows exactly what he is doing and had the timing and weather down to a tee. The weather started to change after the church and he knew we had to get going if we wanted to get our shots. I wanted my wedding photos at Tralee Golf Club with Barrow beach behind us and despite the wind Micheal was able to get some amazing shots.
We are delighted with our photos, they are exactly what we wanted and we would absolutely recommend any future bride and groom to go with Micheal – he’s a gentleman and a pro.
We booked Micheál as our wedding photographer very soon after we got engaged, It was so important for us to get the best photographer. We certainly got that in Micheál, he was amazing on the day itself and in the build up to the wedding, he has a very calming influence and really knows what he is doing, which in turn gave us such confidence on the day itself.
We saw Micheál’s previous work on his website and were immediately impressed by his photographic style. Since neither of us are from the Kerry area, Micheál was a great help in suggesting and selecting such beautiful locations to take our photos.
Micheál did a pre-wedding shoot with us soon before the wedding, this was most helpful with practising for the big day, Micheál provided us with tips and advice which made us feel more confident and comfortable posing for the photos on the day.
On the morning of the wedding as soon as Micheál arrived he got right down to business, he was so calm and most professional and worked so very hard for us to ensure we got the best shots on the day. We now have such amazing photos that we will treasure forever. We could not have chosen a better photographer, Micheál is the very best there is and we feel very lucky that he was the photographer for our special day!
On planning our wedding we viewed many photographers within Kerry, Micheál’s site showed some great snaps, very original and gorgeous landscape photo’s. After meeting with Micheál, we knew he was the right man for the job! He is very professional, spending time with us going through different options and working with us on our requests prior to the day. We wanted to go to two different locations for photo’s which wasn’t a problem and also wanted some shots rowing in the sea. All was accommodated without any problems.
On the day Micheál was great, making us feel very relaxed and at ease, neither of us would be poser’s however we enjoyed all the photo’s being taken in such a relaxed manner.
We have just received our album and it is beyond our expectations, it is absolutely gorgeous and we are so happy with it. We cannot recommend Micheál highly enough to couples to snap your special day.
Micheál was a pleasure to work with right from the word go. He instantly made us feel at ease and made the whole planning process so relaxed, it was a comfort to know we were working with such a professional.
A month before the wedding we had our pre-wedding shoot which gave us a chance to get familiar with being photographed and we go some really beautiful natural shots which we used for a guestbook. All our guests commented on how beautiful these were along with the pictures that were displayed on the website after the wedding.
Neither of us were fans of staged pictures which we had seen so many times from other weddings, so we wanted our day to be captured as naturally as possible and this was an easy ask with Micheál. He captured everything in its natural environment and every one of the pictures were so unique. Even for some guests who are not used to being photographed, he made them feel right at ease.
He was everywhere on the day capturing every moment yet without being too intrusive. He was more like a friend at the wedding rather than a photographer.
We would highly recommend Micheál to any couple getting married. His pictures bring back so many memories of our special day that goes all too quickly. It’s wonderful to have such great pictures to look back on.
Micheál, just a quick note to say how happy we are with our Wedding Album.We are delighted we chose you as our wedding photographer.
Thanks for making us feel at ease on the lead up to the wedding and on the wedding day itself. You have an excellent manner about you and thanks for taking such a personal interest in our big day. Its very clear from our album how talented you are as a photographer. We especially loved the variety of photos you took.
There are so many moments you captured during the day of us chatting and posing naturally with our family and friends that make reliving the day truly special. We feel grateful for all the time and effort you put into our big day. If you know of anyone who would like to see your final product of ‘Our Wedding Album’ please, please send them our way so we can have another excuse to open up the Album!
Micheal was our number one choice as a photographer. I remember calling back to Micheal two weeks before the wedding to discuss settings, any particular photo’s that we required and other details. We were blown away at how quickly he was able to list of the photo’s that we should get, where we should get them, who should be in them. We walked away knowing that we wouldn’t need to worry about a thing.
From the moment he arrived on the morning of the wedding he blended in to the mayhem, he was professional and so easy to get to on with. For our photo’s we went to a strand in Clonakilty, which in November isn’t the warmest of places. The sun was going down and the tide was coming in and I remember us all thinking this is crazy but we went with it knowing that Micheal would know best.
Our photographs arrived yesterday and I cannot describe what an amazing job Micheal did from our family photo’s to the unique ones on the beach, Micheal they were worth all the shivers! We would highly recommend Micheál’s work and we are delighted that he was able to photograph our wedding.
When we got engaged the first thing we booked was Micheal (two years in advance) as we heard how popular he was and from looking at his website and meeting him in person we did not want anyone else. Luckily for us he was available and from start to finish he did not disappoint.
He captured our day like a story through his amazing photographs and because of this we will remember every moment of our special day forever.
Thanks again for everything.
Having been impressed with the quality of Micheal’s work on his website and again by his amazing portfolio when we met in person, we were more than happy to book Micheal as our wedding photographer. And I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we made.
Living in the UK I had to plan my wedding in Killarney through websites and emails, so it was really important to me that Micheal was able to answer any questions I may have over email and he was fantastic at coming back to me really quickly.
On the day of the wedding, he was a calming influence and his friendly manner and quick wit put everyone at ease, enabling him to get the best shots. Neither myself nor my husband are natural posers, but with Micheal’s guidance and relaxed style he was able to lead us through the process without us feeling self conscious and managed to get some lovely natural photos.
In typical Kerry fashion, the weather on our June wedding day was heavy rain. Micheal had a back up plan in place, but luckily there was a break in the weather immediately after our ceremony and thanks to Micheal keeping an eye on the rain clouds we were able to rush out and get some fantastic shots by the lake in Muckross Park, which really made the difference to our wedding album.
I would highly recommend Micheal to any couple looking for a wedding photographer. He was absolutely fantastic and really cared about getting us the shots we wanted. You only get one chance to capture those moments on your wedding day, so I’m glad we left ours in such safe hands!
Michéal instantly provided us with useful tips and ideas and lay out the running order of the day, a thing which we really hadn’t considered. Following the ceremony and throughout our cocktail party, he gently coaxed the two of us and the entire wedding party into taking the most magnificent photos. On receiving the proofs we were blown away by the standard of the photos and touched by the moments he caught on camera.
From the moment we met Micheal o Sullivan at the annual Radio Kerry Wedding fair. We knew that we wanted Micheal to capture our special day.
What drew us to Micheal was his relaxed and ease going manner, and when looking at his sample wedding album his photo’s looked very Natural and this was what we wanted for our special day.
When Micheal entered our homes the morning of the wedding he brought air of laughter and fun which made us all so at ease and relaxed around the camera. This is very event in our storybook wedding album. Micheal pictures were very natural and really captured the spirit of the day. We also took the option of getting mini storybook album for family and friend which have been brilliant for showing people the fabulous pictures of our day. We also got a portrait of us in canvas which is stunning and very unique this really captured the magic of the day’ This has become a big talking point when people visit our home.
Another brilliant service that Micheal provides is that while on honeymoon you can view your pictures of your special day and when you return home your pictures will be at home waiting for you.Thank you Micheal for being part of our big day and capturing so many memories on camera you made the whole experience so really relaxed and enjoyable. We have recommend Micheal to many of our friends and we will defiantly be using Micheal in the future to capture more of our special memories.
My fiance, Hugo, and I married in Killarney, Ireland in July 2012. We got engaged in Killarney in January 2012, when Hugo and I were home visiting my family for Christmas.After Hugo proposed I had three days to try to organise everything for the wedding as Hugo and I live in Mexico. We first met Mícheál at a wedding fair at the Brehon Hotel and his work spoke for itself. The photos in the sample albums were beautiful and I loved the way he showed the lakes of Killarney in some of the photos.
In the run up to the wedding, Mícheál was always available to answer my questions promptly via email. On the day of the wedding Mícheál was great! He was really professional – he knew the type of shots I wanted and he set them up perfectly. He was also really enthusiastic and positive and the bridal party really enjoyed the photoshoot!
Once I was back in Mexico, Mícheál sent me pdf files of the pictures and Hugo and I chose the ones we liked best. Mícheál then organised these into the album and sent me back the proofs. He sent options for some of the pages and offered to make any changes we wanted.
The finished album is great. We chose a storybook album. It is really high quality and shows how the wedding day unfolded! The only complaint I have is that it was tough to choose the photos for the album – there were so many great ones!”
Just want to thank you again for the fantastic job you did covering our Wedding Photography. Everyone was commenting on your photography skills and your personality, you were professional, courteous and fun which made our special day even better. Best of all you made everyone so relaxed all day. We will be recommending you to everyone and anyone that even mentions a photographer.
Micheál O Sullivan’s name is well known in Tralee as a very competent and unique photographer. We were delighted when we got the chance to meet him at the annual Brandon wedding fair in Tralee. We looked no further than Micheál as our choice of photograher. After meeting him we were instantly drawn to his natural warmth and interest in our day. The photos and wedding albums on display said it all and so we booked him there and then! On the day Micheál was as we expected, truly professional, fun, practical and non intrusive.
We enjoyed having him in the house before the wedding as he had such a relaxed approach. As the day went on we mananged to mingle with our guests during the drinks reception while still having all the photos we wanted taken.
Micheál has a very natural and relaxed approach yet he still gets the job done. We didn’t feel that any of our day was wasted taking photos as we really enjoyed the whole experience with Micheál.
Micheál also brought a great sense of fun and laughter to our day which was important to us and as a result we have alot of very natural shots of us laughing and smiling! We even managed to stop at the Bookies on the way to the hotel to take a photo placing a bet on the Grand National! We have no
hesitation in recommending Micheál and were truly satisfied with his service on the day.
It was an added bonus to arrive back after our honeymoon and find a fabulous selection of our wedding photos available to view on Micheál’s website.
We were so delighted that we chose Mícheál to take our wedding photographs. We met with Micheál on a few occasions before the wedding where he put us totally at ease and we were really confident that we had chosen the right photographer. Mícheál took on board all of our suggestions and even went out of his way to visit a location that we had suggested for photographs.
On the day itself Mícheál was so relaxed and put us and our families at ease. He blended in in the houses before the church ad took some lovely candid photographs that are lovely to have. Both during and after the ceremony Mícheál was completely professional and made the time between the church and reception really enjoyable for us and our bridal party. He has a great eye for a shot and we really enjoyed, rather than endured, the photographs being taken.
We couldn’t be happier with the choice of photographer that we made.
Firstly, on seeing Mícheál’s sample albums we were immediately impressed with his work, and on meeting him our minds were made up that he would be our wedding photographer. Mícheál was a delight to work with, he offered us great advice and also took our own ideas on board.
On our wedding day, Mícheál made us both feel at ease and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We could trust Mícheál.
When we got the prints back we were over the moon. The pictures had captured exactly what we wanted and the calmness that he had shown on the day could be seen in every picture.
We would recommend Mícheál to any couple that are getting married. They will receive exceptional service from him, along with stunning pictures of their very special day … as we did!
We are a South African couple that wanted to get married in the west of Ireland. Since the very first e-mail reply Mícheál sent to us, it was clear that he is a professional and an absolute master in his craft. He listened and understood our needs perfectly which instantly made him our obvious choice. When we looked at his portfolio we were blown away by the quality and feel of his work. Exactly what we wanted from our photographer. We wanted our photographer to not only capture us as a couple but also capture Killarney’s beautiful landscapes.
Mícheál was so much fun on the day and made us feel like we’d known each other for years! Working with Mícheál, words such as professional, capable, playful and creative come to mind. Not to mention his great sense of humour!!
We’ll always look at our photographs remembering the great guy behind it! We absolutely LOVE every single photograph and will always be grateful that we made the right choice.
Mícheál, words will never be able to tell you just how thankful we are. You did a great job and we will always remember you. We are SO happy to have chosen you – you really exceeded our expectations. Thank you for being such a hard worker and getting everything ready for us in such good time.
Micheál took photographs of a very high standard with many classic shots and we were spoilt for choice regarding material for the wedding album.
When we viewed the web gallery, our family and friends were very impressed with the high standard of photography with so many natural shots.
During the day, Mícheál made optimum use of two beautiful locations and his instructions were very clear and many of the photographs were individual and intimate without being over-staged. When our energy faded, he kept us awake with his enthusiasm and the results were certainly well worth it.
We want our wedding memories to last forever and when we were choosing a wedding photographer we met with a number of photographers before we settled on Micheál O’Sullivan. We were quite confident from the beginning that we had made the correct choice and that Micheál would provide the service and professionalism that we required.
We availed of the chance to have an engagement shoot which was fantastic as you get to know your photographer and are more at ease for the wedding day. From the moment Micheál arrived in the house on the morning of the wedding he was brilliant, he was unobtrusive and his style and his Kerry charm added enormously to the fun that we all had on the day.
Micheál made the photographs stress free and enjoyable for everyone….even the Groom! Micheál captured the main events, the smiles, the embraces and all the spontaneous moments in between.
Our wedding photographs captured and preserved our many memories of our magical day and we are so thankful to Micheál for this.
From the first moment we met Micheál prior to our wedding day he made us feel at ease. I had viewed many photographers websites and Micheáls breathtaking photos won us over straight away. Before our wedding Micheál answered every question and took all our queries and worries into consideration. Both of us are quite camera shy and don’t like being in the spotlight – Micheál instantly made us feel at ease and never put us under any pressure – in fact he made it quite fun and the time just flew by.
There ius just something about Micheál’s presence and personality that wins you over straight away. He was like our very own wedding planner on the day. He made sure we got to all our locations on time while at the same time not rushing us in any way – a true gentleman in every manner.
Finally, we would like to thank Micheál so very much for making our day so special from the moment he arrived to the brides mayhem house until he left the reception. He has captured our day so brilliantly in all the fantastic photos – it will be hard to choose which ones make the album! We will cherish them forever.
Thanks again Micheál, we appreciate everything that you did for us.
Thank you very much for your professionalism on our day you made us very relaxed. We would highly recommend you.
Just wanted to write and thank you for your professionalism throughout the wedding day, the pictures turned out beautifully. Jen and I were both delighted that we availed of your services and will be recommending you to others.
You should know that your picture featured in the New York Daily News on the weekend edition. We will send a copy anyway wanted to wish you future success!
I first came across Micheál’s work online. I was highly impressed so arranged a meeting in his studio where he showed us the different styles of photo’s he takes we also got to see his award winning work. It was very easy to make our minds up.
Micheál is a pleasure to work with. He really did keep the whole show going. He has an outstanding eye for capturing the special moments that make a wedding day. He has a very unique style and pays strict attention to detail. He is very easy going and noting poses a problem to him.
Micheál shot fabulous ‘getting ready’ photo’s at the house, then captured the guests arriving at the church. As a busy bride it was great to look back over these photo’s and see the little bits that you missed over the day. He took more photos at the castle and then back at the hotel.
Micheál took a mixture of natural looking photos where as a bride you don’t realise they are being taken and posed photos. The posed group shots were so well managed this was as a result of his patience and determination.
Micheál captured the mood of the day so perfectly, most of the time without us being aware of his presence. So many guests commented on how professional he was. It was very evident that he had a high level of experience dealing with weddings.
I found it almost impossible to pick the photo’s for the album there was so many to choose from. Each photo’s is of superior quality and truly brings out the colours of bridesmaid dresses, flowers, backgrounds etc. all the small things a bride spends hours deciding on. The pictures can be adjusted to a number of colours blue tone, sepia, black and white etc.
The album is presented amazingly. We will treasure it for a lifetime. Thanks for sharing your gift!
Micheál was our first and only choice as our wedding photographer. He always made us feel that it was OUR day, and whatever we wanted was fine with him! Micheál was very obliging and easy-going and nothing was too much trouble for him, on the day or afterwards. He comes highly recommended from ourselves!
From the very first photo that morning and right throughout the day Michael was absolutely excellent in every way. His attention to detail, his unobtrusive manner, his ability to spot the quirky and unusual shot along with his unique eye for the perfect photo ensured that we got the wedding album we dreamed of.
This was my special day and I did not want the additional worry of checking to see if we got all the photos of families and friends that we would want. I needn’t have worried. Michael made certain that everything went extremely smoothly and everyone was catered for. I forgot he was there for most of the time. We didn’t even know that most of the photos had been taken until we saw them in the album!
We had seen albums created by Micheal prior to booking him for our wedding and also had viewed his breathtaking work on his website. We were very impressed with all his work and had no hesitations that he would do an excellent job on the day and we weren’t disappointed. His attention to detail stood out in all his previous work.
A few weeks prior to our wedding we met Micheal to go through the final preparations for the big day. He took a great deal of time with us to go through the various sample albums he had. He was very open to our ideas and he got a feel for the type of photos and album we were looking for to suit our individual personalities. I found the meeting very personal yet highly professional. Michael listened to everything we had to say and answered all our questions putting us both very much at ease! Even silly things like the weather and other options if it did rain; Micheal had all the right answers!
On the day of the wedding Micheal caught the atmosphere and excitement of the occasion to perfection. He captured the natural flow of the entire day bringing it almost to life through his photographs. He was very relaxed and calm and made the entire wedding party feel immediately at ease. Micheal is very patient and does not rush his work. He had some posed and some very natural photos that we had agreed we had wanted in advance. I hadn’t even noticed or been aware he had taken many of them. He was almost invisible at times!
We have seen a sample of our wedding photos already online and we are so happy with the result. The photos are amazing, stunning and beautiful and they have surpassed all our expectations. The memory of the day is captured in its entirety. The quality and range of photos are fantastic. Getting our photos taken on the day was such a pleasure and we had a lot of fun. Micheal has a very unobtrusive style which is a huge bonus on a wedding day but yet captures all the finer details which is exactly what we were looking for.
We very much appreciate all the help and effort Micheal provided to us prior to, during and post our wedding day. I can highly recommend Micheal as he is an extremely professional yet friendly photographer, someone that provides highly competitive and creative work in the service he provides.
Many thanks for the fantastic and fabulous photos. We are looking forward to our complete album (may be difficult to choose what photos we want to include as they are all so good!). We will cherish them for many years to come and share with family and friends in reliving those very special moments. We definitely made the right choice in our photographer!
We would both like to thank you for the outstanding job you did. The album is out of this world. We were thrilled to bits with it. We can’t get over the colour and style and the canvas is now in pride of place in our sitting room. Thanks again for everything, we have memories to last us a lifetime.
We would highly recommend Micheál for your wedding day photographer. He was very professional throughout. He made all our family and friends feel at ease and relaxed during the day. He has a great eye for a picture and he captured the day brilliantly. He got everything done without any fuss or pressure and the album is fantastic.
We would like to thank Micheál for the great job he did before the wedding day, on the day in particular and after the wedding when we were preparing the album. He made all the wedding party feel at ease on the big day and everything from the wedding mass through to the reception ran perfectly. The wedding album now takes pride of place at home and is shown with pride to visitors to our home.
We were really, really happy with the wedding photos. Micheál took all the photos we were looking for and there were also some great surprises. Micheál was very easy to work with on the day, he’s very relaxed and not a bit intrusive, I hardly noticed Micheál at work on the day.
We would highly recommend Micheál as a wedding photograph.
We were both delighted with our photo album. The day has been captured perfectly and presented beautifully in the storybook format. Being able to choose from a selection of photos allowed us to contribute to the final design, which we very much appreciated. Those who have browsed through the book have been very impressed and have commented on its uniqueness and style. We have no trouble at all in recommending Micheál to anyone planning their special day.
We would highly recommend Micheál to any couple getting married. His work is artistic, modern and elegant. We have spent hours looking over our wedding pictures and we couldn’t be happier with them. They are truly amazing and captured our day beautifully. Micheál was calm, patient and encouraging to us and our families on our wedding day, a pleasure to deal with.
Micheál on the day, went beyond his duties as a photographer and made all the wedding party feel at ease with his friendliness and easy-going manner. He seemed more like a guest at the wedding which a number of our guests are still commenting on. During both the ceremony and the reception, Micheál was completely unobtrusive while essentially being everywhere and seeing everything. He provided us with so many beautiful images, which were waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon (not to mind having some displayed on his web page only days after the wedding!). Deciding which to put in our album has been a truly difficult task!
Micheál captured all the special moments throughout the day and added his creative ideas to provide us with spectacular images that we will treasure. These memories will be fresh for us forever because of Micheál’s skill and energy. I would strongly recommend Micheál for any special occasion.
