Marie and Bernard – Galway Bay Hotel
We wanted a different feel from our wedding photos.we wanted them to be relaxed and candid and that is expressed in all of them. There was no pressure or tension or forced smiles. Paul is a true artist. He is so good at his art form and it shows. He makes you relaxed from the get go.
Maud and Liam
Paul the legend behind the lens. talk about exceeding my expectations. Thank you for taking the most beautiful pictures and capturing our fairytale day. I was so delighted that Paul was available for the date of our wedding. I think the first think I did after Liam proposed was book Paul straight away. I was following Paul on Instagram and Facebook and always loved his style. As the man himself says it’s not a photoshoot it’s your wedding day. Paul was such a calming influence in the house on the morning and you had us in stitches. Thank you for making this camera shy bride feel so confident relaxed and happy on my wedding day. Paul even had our slides show of pictures of the day ready as we sat after dinner. everyone admired the beautiful pictures that Paul had taken works of art. If you are thinking of booking Paul for your big day do it he is the most talented professional friendly and caring person if Carlsberg did photographers.
Avril & Keith – Loughrea Hotel and Spa, Co. Galway

“We had Paul Duane as our photographer and he was absolutely amazing. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding he couldn’t have been more helpful. We got married in April gone and I am still trying to decide on pics for my album. There are just so many fabulous photos to choose from. Paul is extremely professional and so un invasive. He is there to capture all your special moments and gets all the unique photos that you don’t even think of. I cant recommend Paul Duane enough as a photographer but don’t just take my word for it take a look at his Facebook page. His work speaks for it’s self.”
Teresa and Mark
We booked Paul based on the pictures we saw online and when we met him in person instantly put at ease. He was easy to talk to about the type of pictures we wanted. On the day of the wedding was so professional. Didn’t even notice him most of the time. We love our pictures and the best bit was we didn’t have to wait long to get a preview or the finished ones. Definitely would recommend Paul
Cara-Iosa and Thomas – Hotel Westport, Mayo
“By far the best money we spent on our wedding. Paul listens to what you want for your big day and more importantly he remembers it all on the day. He takes time to get to know his clients. Fiona was so helpful when we were getting ready and she took some great shots at the reception. They were exactly what we wanted, excellent communication, great fun,blended into the crowd and beautiful photos. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
Fernanda and Kevin
We don’t even know how to start putting in words how happy we were for having Paul taking our wedding photos. He was so much more than a photographer, he was there as a human being and trying to help us in everything his experience with weddings was able for in many aspects! You will feel like you have one of your friends shooting your special day. Paul is so talented, artistic, friendly, upbeat, experienced and will really make your day more enjoyable and stress free. And the pictures Oh my God, beyond this world! We received so many compliments and you would not even see him taking them, very discreet! Thank you so much for everything Paul, since the day we met you for the photoshoot in the Cliffs we knew we had the best photographer in the world!
Louise and Keith

Jenny and Dave – Three Towers, Galway
“We had our wedding on a tight budget, but I said from the start that we couldn’t scrimp on our photography: the wine gets drank, the food eaten but to have the memories is too important and we are so delighted we chose Paul and Fiona.We’ll cherish these memories forever. Thank you both so much – I’d recommend you to anyone and everyone x x”
Nicola & Colm, Ballykisteen
We had Paul photograph our wedding and I could not say enough about him!
Extremely professional and such a gent to deal with. He also kept us calm throughout the day and didn’t have a problem with any requests. A true professional from start to finish and would not hesitate in recommending him!
Bridget and Jemma, The Tower Hotel, Waterford
Hiring Paul was by far, one of the best decisions we made when it came to our wedding! He was so experienced and professional, all his helpful tips and advice really helped calm my nerves on the morning! We had a slight change of plan on the morning regarding our schedule and a quick phone call later Paul was there with a friendly smile! He even offered to source our first dance music when my wife realised she had forgotten the memory stick! Our photos turned out amazing and no one was missed, we love all the casual candid shots that really capture the special little moments throughout the day. If your planning your own wedding, or recently engaged then look no further than Paul!
Nicole and Gary
Paul and Fiona where amazing from the very beginning, very friendly and great packages. I meet Paul when I was bridesmaid for my friends wedding so I had seen him in action and loved his work so we where so excited he was free to do our wedding…and he did not disappoint. On the day of our wedding, Paul was amazing everyone was very comfortable with him as he has such a calming presence and we had so much fun taking our bridal party photos. Paul is a professional and his work is outstanding. We are so happy with our photos and love the small video clips he includes. We would recommend Paul 100%.
Carly and Jamie
We chose Paul for our wedding 1st Aug 2019, and we were totally blown away. One of the nicest guys you will ever meet and so professional. He put everyone at ease throughout the day, no pressure on anyone to do any silly posing photos – the day was captured without even noticing Paul was behind the lens! He helped keep everyone calm on the morning and advised us on timing of the day – Getting ready etc! Honestly Paul and his wife Fiona are the dream Team! Any queries we had Fiona was so responsive and helpful and Paul is just amazing at his job! Some of the shots he captured are simply unbelievable. Highly recommend Paul to any future brides out there he really is one in a million and we both can’t thank him enough for all he done on the big day!!!
Karen and Francis – Ardboyne Hotel, Meath
Amazing photographer!!! I really cannot recommend Paul enough, amazing photos!! Paul, you made our day so special and so fun from the beginning right up until the end. There was no pressure and everything was nice and laid back, exactly what we wanted, and you made it great fun while getting so many fab photos that we will treasure forever.
Thank you so much Paul
Kate and Thomas
So glad to have been able to book Paul for our wedding make sure you book ASAP!!He was brilliant from the get go. Felt totally at ease with him! Thanks again Paul. 🙂
Annemarie and Jamie
We had the most amazing experience. From start to finish Paul was a dream to work with. He was so helpful and kept the day running smoothly he also captured some stunning footage using the drone at our venue. We were thrilled with our photographs and couldn’t recommend Paul and Fiona highly enough.
Breda and Luigi
My wife, Breda O’Halloran and I had the pleasure of having Paul Duane capture our special day, and we can safely say that it was the best decision we made out of everything else, apart from getting married!! This was evident from the moment we emailed with our initial enquiry. We could tell straight away that Paul and Fiona were lovely people. I met Paul without Breda but I couldn’t of been put more at ease (most grooms to be would not dream of doing this!) But our faith was justified when Paul arrived on the day and calmed some early morning panic stations, and from then on he was immense, and we totally relaxed and enjoyed the whole day!! The proof was in the pudding as his sneak peeks of our wedding were snapped up by RSVP magazine, need I say more. Paul is absolute class. Don’t hesitate to book this man to capture your precious moments! Thanks again Paul, truly grateful you agreed to join us for our big day!
Fiona and Mark
Paul was absolutely amazing from the very first day we met him. From helping us with ideas and keeping up on track on our big day he was beyond brilliant. His photos were absolutely gorgeous blew us away loved them all. They were so natural. We could not recommend Paul enough. Thanks a million.
Claire and John
Paul was nothing short of amazing on our day. He was a real calming influence. No task was too big or small for him. He is great crack and really easy going. Both myself and my husband wouldn’t be the best in front of a camera so we decided to book an engagement shoot with Paul to calm our nerves. It was one of the best ideas we had for the wedding. It allowed him to get to know us and for us to get comfortable with him. Paul is really amazing at what he does. I have been passing his name to all my friends who are getting married. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.
Amy and Darren – Raheen Woods
From the moment we met Paul we knew that we wanted to have him as our photographer, his so down to earth and his work speaks for its self!! Paul captured mine and Darren wedding ON 6th May 2016 and i can’t stop singing his praise and stop looking at teaser photos we have already received from Paul. Paul also captured our engagement shoot a month before wedding, it was a great way of getting to know Paul and making you feel less nervous of having a camera around on your wedding day! The photos we received from our engagement shoot were so beautiful, we were so excited for Paul to capture our wedding!! Paul is so professional, and an absolute gentleman, i felt so at ease with having Paul at our wedding, he blended in and captured the most stunning photos!! Paul put together a slide show of a few photos taken through out the day and showed them at reception, everyone was amazed of how beautiful his work is! if you are looking for a down to earth photographer and that will capture your Fairy-tale in the most natural way, Then i highly recommend Paul! His definitely a 5 star photographer!! Thank you Paul for everything.
Meaghan and Stephen
If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, Paul is your guy! From start to finish, Paul was amazing to work with for our wedding. His style of photography and his great sense of humour just made us feel so at ease. Most of the time we didn’t even notice he was there but he still captured the most amazing and memorable photos that we will cherish forever. Paul is a true professional and everything about his work is of the highest standard. We would highly recommend any couples considering Paul to book him straight away, you will not regret it.
Annemarie and Patrick
Paul took our wedding photos in the 3rd of August 2019. He took photos in both my own home house and my husbands. He fitted right into the madness. He is a brilliant photographer and captures the little moments which are so important. Paul is amazing to work with and I would recommend him to everyone.
Grainne and Andreas – Ashley Park House
Paul was perfect, and we love the end result as well. He made sure that we were relaxed and not away from guests too long. He also made sure we took some time out for ourselves. He was so flexible that he postponed his own holiday plans to make it to our wedding. Great value for money as well. Can’t fault him in any way.
Annabel and Ronan
I couldn’t have booked another photographer for my wedding day. Paul was the photographer for my sisters wedding in 2018 so my relief when he was available for my wedding date!! Paul is very easy going and keeps everything relaxed on the day. Whilst keeping everyone relaxed he also kept everything on schedule and made sure we kept on track. If Paul is available for your wedding date book him!
Caroline and Patrick
I could not fault Paul. He is a fantastic photographer and a genuine great guy, he kept me calm throughout the day, he come prepared for any situation ie hair clips, sewing kit, first aid kit etc. Paul captured fantastic moments throughout the day our guests didn’t even realise he was in the room leading to amazing candid photos. If you want your day to go smoothly and have great photographs Paul Duane is definitely the best man for the job.
Caroline and Jack – Oriel House, Ballincollig, Cork
Amazing!!!! received my wedding photos today and I just love them. Paul managed to capture everything about our day without even knowing he was there his natural personality put everyone at ease and his photos speak for themselves. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer
Rachael & Peter, Loughrea Hotel and Spa, Co. Galway
From the beginning our experience with Paul was incredible. He has such a calming effect in the whole day and got such amazing photos – he’s like a photo ninja, you just don’t see him and the results are some beautiful natural shots. He made our day even memorable for all the right reasons. We would recommend him and sing his praises to anyone. Thanks Paul
Caroline and Adam
We highly highly recommend Paul, if we could give him a 10 we would. What stood out to us on the day is how much you can tell Paul loves his job. He guided us through the day with such ease there was a lovely flow from start to finish. He did a fabulous slide show for us to have a sneak peak of the day which all our guests loved. His a through gentleman to have around on such a special occasion.10/10
Michelle and Shane, Loughrea Hotel, Co. Galway
Look no further and book Paul for your wedding!
Paul is excellent to work with, very calm and a true gentleman.
Contact with Paul was good – my husband and I live abroad so Paul responded to emails quickly and was flexible with meeting in person before the wedding. We got married in December 2016, on the day Paul was really professional and could also crack a few jokes! He is really pleasant to be around. Paul gave guidance throughout the day. Paul captured great photos – both nature and posed shots, and asked in advance of the day if there were any special photos we were looking for. We received the photos quickly after the wedding. A great photographer. Would book again for other celebrations and recommend to family and friends. Thank you Paul, from Michelle and Shane
Carolyn and Shane, Dunmore House, Clonakilty
It was an absolute pleasure working with Paul! My wife and I were married back in September and Paul honestly made the day go so much more smoother. His personality, guidance and professionalism were greatly appreciated and his photographs were absolutely fantastic. We received these photos very quickly after the wedding and are both thrilled with the results. We would absolutely recommend Paul Duane Photography to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer for their big day. Thanks Paul.
Shane and Carolyn
Martina and Jakub – Oranmore Lodge, Galway
We chose to hire Paul Duane Photography based his mission statement on there web page “(Our style is very much relaxed and natural, we don’t tell couples what to do or boss them about its just not who we are. We give advice or gentle suggestions, not orders. We like things to be as relaxed as possible and we blend into the background that way we can capture real natural moments as they happen and ensure you have photographs you will cherish forever)” True to his word that is exactly what he delivered, we had a wonderful relaxed day and it helped that our photographer was a complete professional, at no point did we or our guests feel like they had a lenses in there faces. We got a lot of great photos and he also put together a photo video, which was amazing. If you’re looking for a photographer who will let you enjoy the day and not boss you around Paul Duane Photography would be a wise choice.
Eimear and John
Having researched a few photographers we chose Paul as we wanted someone to capture our day in a relaxed way. Paul was exceptional to deal with from the moment we contacted him. He guided us in the right direction so many times and gave us lots of brilliant tips for the big day. Any requests we had were never a problem, he even called to both houses on the morning of the wedding to capture the different build ups! On the day Paul’s relaxed approach continued and this helped everyone involved feel completely at ease. We were absolutely thrilled with the way our photos turned out, and have received so many complements on them. We loved how Paul seemed to capture all the special moments totally naturally, we would highly recommend him to anyone planning their big day. Paul is just a great photographer and a great guy! Thanks again Paul 🙂
Yvonne and Anthony
Paul Duane is an amazing wedding photographer. We couldn’t have picked a better person. His knowledge and professionalism are second to none and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to every couple planning their future wedding. Paul blended in like another guest at the wedding and made us feel completely at ease. He also helped with planning and scheduling throughout the day. The photographs he produced were absolutely outstanding !!
Kelly and John
We were so grateful to work with someone fun, kind, talented & professional. Paul took stunning photos of our elopement. Being a couple from the United States that wanted to elope in Ireland, Paul helped every bit of the way and even connected us with a wonderful officiant! Keeping in contact was a breeze prior to our big day. Our day was so stress free as we felt very safe in his trusted hands. We don’t like cameras in our faces, but Paul helped us break out of our comfort zone. His direction was amazing and soon we couldn’t get enough of posing for the camera! Should we ever do vow renewals in Ireland, we’ll ask Paul to capture that day as well!
Mark and Neil – Loughrea Hotel
Outstanding photographer. Paul is very easy to get along with and plan exactly what you want. We started with a quick chat on Skype and were in regular contact throughout our wedding planning process. On the day he was fantastic – he captured some stunning shots and at times we even forgot he was there snapping away. Very highly recommended.
Fionnuala and Berian – Renvyle House, Galway
“ From start to finish working with Paul was fab. The fact he came to scope our venue and pick the best spots for photos, the fact he put so much thought into shots without us even realising. On the day, and throughout the process he put everyone at ease- even reminding us about things we forgot (like cutting the cake!)
I would definitely recommend Paul as your photographer – he takes the stress out of what can be a stressful process, is a natural with everyone and puts people at ease. Oh and also takes amazing pics!”
June and Rob – Loughrea, Co. Galway
Jean and David – Loughrea Hotel
Paul is amazing….. Such a lovely guy and made all of our bridal party and parents ( who are very camera shy) etc at ease. He just blended into the background. He gave me such good advice (I listened for once 😉 ) and I’m so glad I did. Our photos are so beautiful and unique to us. Three couples from our wedding that have asked for his details. I had absolutely no hesitation in passing on his details. Fabulous photographer.
Nicola and Shane, Glasson Country House, Co. Westmeath
We had Paul as our wedding photographer on new years Eve and we cannot recommend him highly enough. Not only is Paul an amazing photographer, he’s an absolute gent. From the minute we got in touch with Paul we knew he was totally what we were looking for and now that we’ve gotten our photos back we are just blown away by the pictures from our day which captured so many magical moments for us. We honestly never noticed him taking these on the day – Paul was amazing in making sure we got all the photos we wanted (& so many more!) but allowed us to spend time with our guests which was so important to us. The only problem is now we don’t have a clue how we’re going to pick our album photos!! So from the bottom of our newly married hearts thank you so much Paul for capturing amazing memories for us
Amy and David, The Meadow Court, Co. Galway
A true professional! Paul made us feel relaxed from the very first moment we met. His ability to capture the special moments that you don’t see is the very reason that we chose him and I’m glad that we did. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for the extra personal touch! ! Thank you so much
Sharon and Patrick
We had Paul as our photographer for our wedding in May and he was absolutely fantastic, we always wanted natural photos and he certainly didn’t disappoint when we received our wedding photos, they where absolutely stunning to say the least. He is such a talented photographer and very chilled which is what you want on your wedding day.
Petrina and Pat
Paul is absolutely super at what he does, we cant recommend him enough. He kept everything running smoothly throughout the day. He captured shots we had no idea about. He has a great sense of humour and just slotted into the day so well. I have friends enquiring with him for their own weddings. His work is just so natural and effortless. We certainly made the right choice. Thanks so much again Paul. Petrina & Pat Waldron
Emma and Shaun
What can I say from start to finish it was an absolute pleasure dealing with Paul and Fiona. They helped us with everything, they even gave us suggestions of other suppliers. They are always quick to respond to emails and provided support in so many ways. On the day you barely even knew Paul was there. He put us at ease throughout and our photos have turned out so beautiful. I would highly recommend Paul for your big day.
Nicola and Raymond
Myself and Raymond had no doubt about who we wanted to be our Photographer . Paul had photographed my sisters wedding in 2017 and he was amazing! Paul was always there for a bit of advice my favourite “eye on the prize ” would recommend him 100%
Ciara and Tomas – Glenlo Abbey, Galway
We engaged Paul to do our wedding photography in March and it was some of the best spent money on our wedding day. From the pre meetings we had whereby he talked calmly through the timing of the day and what we wanted we felt this was the right choice. Paul is a pure professional but was also so friendly and able to give us tips beforehand and during the day which really helped our day go smoothly and as relaxed as possible. He remembered all the little things we had asked him to and had a few surprises himself for us. I can honestly say he went above and beyond and that was before we had even seen the pictures, which needless to say were just stunning. I don’t think either of us have ever looked so well! Thanks so much
Leanne and Derek
Paul was absolutely brilliant, never rushed or panicked us and was a great help with picking places for pictures. His professionalism is second to none and the quality of his work speaks for itself.
Deborah and David – Glenlo Abbey, Galway
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Paul. When I first started looking for a photographer, I was overwhelmed. There were so many in Ireland. Every time that I would find a photographer that I somewhat liked, judging on their pictures, the prices were crazy high. One day, I stumbled across Paul’s page. I fell in love with his pictures the moment I saw them. They were natural pictures that capture the happiness and joy that is experienced at weddings. I didn’t care what his prices were, I wanted him. The crazy thing was that his prices were by far the most reasonable! We met up with Paul just to see how we would all work together for the wedding. My husband and I booked him that day. I cannot sing Paul’s praises enough. He was am amazing photographer. I usually don’t like any pictures of myself, but I love almost every one of Paul’s from our wedding. He captures the wedding. He’ll take shots that you never thought to take, and you’ll never even know he is there, so there not staged. But of course, he’ll take some group and couple shots as well. He even listened to all of my crazy ideas that I had for photographs 🙂 If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, seriously, email Paul right now. I guarantee you that you’re not going to be disappointed. I still have friends and family that tell me how amazing he was; and the results just back it up! If you want the best photographer in Ireland, get Paul.
Laurel and Evan
We had Paul for our wedding on the 10th of may he was amazing and really made us feel at ease in front of the camera. I felt so calm and comfortable with him through out the morning and we had a great laugh. The pictures are amazing and everyone is talking about how lovely they are.
Dee and Charlie
Talk about the best man for the job! We had the pleasure of having Paul at our wedding in West Clare in March and he couldn’t do enough for us. Not only was he an absolute gem throughout the day, he then delivered epic pictures. Paul is the wedding planner we didn’t know we needed, kept us moving throughout the day in the most calming relaxed way, without disrupting any of the proceedings and capturing so many special moments. I couldn’t recommend Paul enough and we’re just delighted we got him for our big day. Dee & Charlie Glynn
Deirdre and Colm
Literally the best wedding photos you could ask for. Paul was amazing. He was invisible, you never knew he was there! And yet he was so organised and as result our day ran so smoothly. Your photographer is one of the most important people at your wedding… Paul is the man to have 100%.
Caroline & Shaun – The Inn at Dromoland, Clare
From the very first email I received from Paul, we knew he was the photographer for us. His relaxed, professional approach made us feel completely at ease. He took the time to get to know us and to understand what type of pictures we were looking for. Neither of us are huge fans of having our photo taken, but on the day of the wedding Paul just made us feel so relaxed and at ease. The photos were fabulous and we found many that we were completely unaware that Paul had taken! Our family and friends were equally as impressed with Paul, and never felt that he was intruding on the wedding day. We’ll definitely recommend him to everyone!
Eimear and Paul – Knockranny House
Paul was an excellent find for my new hubbie and I. Neither of us would be comfortable in front of the camera and his laid back but professional attitude from the first time we met him and the morning of the wedding was super. He helped keep the girls and I calm on the morning and even managed to get some lovely snaps of my very camera shy niece!! The results so far have been amazing. He provided us with a “sneak peek” of photos 48 hours after the day. I would highly recommend Paul.
Orna and Emmet
Paul is absolutely incredible at what he does. I had an extremely nervous groom on my hands who HATES photographs. after a pre wedding shoot he declared.. that wasn’t so bad. and that was down to Paul’s unobtrusive manner. On the day Paul was even better. He kept everything running to time and did so in such a lovely way. Both parents have since commented on how lucky we were to have him with us on the day. That is before I even get to the photos! We got a snapshot of what had been taken after dinner and within a few days had our teaser shots. I absolutely love all of them. They perfectly capture the fun we had on the day. Our whole bridal party were over the moon because they thought we would be out taking photos for at least an hour.. not so with Paul. Almost all natural shots of you enjoying the day with your nearest and dearest and they are absolutely beautiful. I could not recommend Paul more. Any questions I had in the lead up were answered very promptly. We are delighted with your work Paul. Thank you so much. You gave us a way to treasure our beautiful memories forever.
Jen and Kevin, Ballymagarvey, Co. Meath
We don’t even know where to start, Paul is first and foremost one of the nicest and most genuine guys you could meet aswell as an amazingly talented photographer. He made us so comfortable on our wedding day and he captured our day beautifully! Paul, thank you so much for everything we really couldn’t have asked for anymore! Jen & Kev
Laura and Keith – Salthill Hotel, Galway
We can’t recommend Paul highly enough. Not only are the quality of the photographs top class, the way Paul goes about his work during the day puts everyone at ease. Having good photos to remember our day was very important to us and we couldn’t be happier with what we have received. The mix between posed and natural shots capturing the day was spot on. Paul has been such a pleasure to deal with not only before the wedding but since the wedding too when organising albums etc and dealt with every request we’ve had so professionally and with such a great attitude. Definitely one of the top suppliers we dealt with and would recommend anyone looking for a photographer to hire him. You won’t be disappointed. Keith & Laura
Carmel and Oliver – The Lady Gregory, Gort
“Just want to thank Paul for providing an excellent service. We had Paul photograph our wedding he was super friendly to us and all our guests and was so kind to my son. He is professional and efficient and really listened to what we wanted from our photographs so many people rightly so have complimented Paul. Thank You Paul from Carmel & Oliver”
Bevin and Shane – Playa Blanca, Lanzarote
Paul Duane is an amazing photographer he is so genuine. I think any bride and groom looking for a photographer really needs to connect with them and feel relaxed with them and we really felt that with Paul.
