Award-Winning (and fun and relaxed) Family and Wedding Photography based in Dungarvan, co. Waterford. Ireland.



My name is Irina Duane and I so glad to see you on my website!


I specialise in Family and Wedding photography. I am based in Dungarvan, co. Waterford but happy to travel the world to capture your stories.

Also a very important note:  If you are looking for Happy Memories Photography?! You are in the right place!


Happy Memories Photography was created for children and family photography studio, which I closed down last year to focus on lifestyle family photography and of course weddings. Things have changed in my business that the current brand, unfortunately, doesn’t represent anymore.

Rebranding is a big undertaking and I didn’t want to approach it lightly. I knew that if I were going to do it, I would want to keep it simple under my own name Irina Duane Photography. I have a lot of things to do and I hope you will support me.  New logo/ brand. New website. New services. new products. But it's still me behind all of this...Irina Duane.

Capturing love. Creating memories

“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
– Andy Warhol


Whether you are looking for photographs of your children or just updating your family photos, I would love to capture these special moments in your life.


I specialise in timeless and natural family photography. A candid moment is going to tell the story of your children and family so much more than a posed portrait in a staged environment. I want your child's true personality gets to shine. I want your children to look at the photos in years time and say: "That's how my childhood looked like"! 

Lifestyle (true to life) photography is my true passion so with your session you can expect natural posing and a lot of fun.

When my customers look at the images, I want them to feel the love they have for each other and special connection.

I am fully registered and insured. 







“Photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a look into the future.”
– Sally Mann

My primary goal as a wedding photographer is to tell your love story, to create photographs that you will fall in love with. 


My style is largely candid with a soft and romantic appeal. I aim to create a rich collection of relaxed and natural images with a good blend of creative photographs that will definitely make your wedding stand out and bring a lot of fun along the way.

​I am happy to accommodate any requirements from a few hours to a full day. 


I am fully registered and insured. 



"Could not recommend Irina enough. Her kind and caring nature is incredible when working with such young children, making her professional photos outstanding, even when they don’t want to cooperate 😂

Irina is so understanding and the photos she manages to get of my little boy never fail to amaze me."

We’ve had Irina photograph two family occasions and found her to be excellent. She put everyone at ease, gave us priceless memories and went the extra mile to provide us with edited photos in a timely fashion. Would highly recommend Irina Duane Photography and looking forward to using her services again.
