Chloe & Mark
Irina was a dream to deal with in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. Irina's organisational skills ensured the whole day ran smoothly and all photos were captured with ease. Irina was extremely professional, discreet and still captured the most amazing photographs. I cannot recommend Irina enough!
Aoife & Paul
The Park Hotel Dungarvan
We would highly recommend Irina for any special day you might have. We booked Irina for our wedding day after meeting her at the park hotel wedding fair where she was very approachable. She kept in touch and communicated with us leading right up until the wedding.
Irina made us all feel so relaxed and comfortable from the moment she arrived , her attention to detail is second to none.
Irina was professional from start to finish. We even got a sneak peak of some photos emailed to us the next day, which was amazing to have. She is not just amazing at what she does she is a friendly caring person . We love each and every photo she captured for us on our special day. Irina we want to thank you so much we will cherish our photos forever Aoife and Paul.
Vanessa & Reamonn
Irina was a pleasure to work with, from start to finish. After trawling through countless photographers, Irina's work caught my attention, not only for the overall quality, but for how alive it felt. I categorically hate photos and posing, meaning that having natural photos was incredibly important to me at our wedding, and Irina never failed to impress.
Not only was she incredibly professional in our consultations, but she did everything in her power to ensure each photo was magical, from a comprehensive photo list before the wedding, to a site walk in the morning where light levels were checked, and even demonstrating some incredible ninja skills in being as unobtrusive as possible on a busy day in a small space.
At a wedding of around 80-90 people, we had our photos all done in thirty minutes or less, with friends, family, and the works. We actually had time to spend with our loved ones, and within a day or two of the wedding she already had a selection of photos ready for us to reminisce over.
The photos were gorgeous, the albums were incredible, and Irina truly made one of the best days of my life that much more special with her presence. Hand on heart I cannot recommend Irina enough.
Aisling & Jamie
Irina was our photographer for our wedding in August 2022. Where do I even start! Irina was amazing. From the start of wedding planning Irina was so approachable with any little query we had, from the booking process right through to the wedding day itself. Irina was so lovely when I met her for our pre wedding meeting, ensuring any must have photos were documented and listening to my ideas. Irina also helped with the wedding morning timeline.
On the morning Irina fitted in so well. From helping with the boys buttonholes, arranging the furniture for photos and helping with my veil. Irina was like a 4th bridesmaid/wedding coordinator
Irina has a fantastic way with people, none of the photos felt awkward and everyone commented on how comfortable they felt with her.
Irina captured the emotion and happiness of the day in all her photos, looking at them is like reliving the day again. We had our photos way sooner than we expected and even had a sneak preview 2 days afer the wedding, which was great to keep the excitement going. We are beyond delighted with all our photos and I cannot thank her enough. I would highly recommend Irina to any future brides.
Jessica & Tom
We couldn't rate Irina highly enough. From start to finish she was absolutely fantastic. Such a calm, fun and lovely person to work with! So many of our guests raved about how good she was on the day. Such a professional and dedicated person and we could not have been happier with our amazing photos. Even the gift box she sent to us afterwards with our prints and the USB stick enclosed was so amazing and special to receive. Would recommend her to anybody! Thanks Irina so much!! Jess and Tom

The Haven Hotel Dunmore East
We recently got married and had Irina as our photographer. I can't recommend her enough to any brides/grooms to be. From the minute she walked into the room on the morning of the wedding she slipped right in without making any fuss and slotted into our morning. Irina helped keep a relaxing mood in the room which really allowed me to enjoy the morning. This carried on throughout the day and she was a pleasure to have around on our special day, nothing was too big of an ask. The photos we received were absolutely stunning, we are thrilled with them. Irina sent our photos way sooner than I thought and we were so happy with the images she captured. They really portray the amazing day we had. Both myself and my husband only have great things to say about Irina and her work we would highly recommend her to others in the future and have already passed her name on to a few of our friends.

From the moment we booked Irina for our wedding we knew we had gotten an amazing photographer. Everything from our first online meeting 2 years ago to the moment we received our beautiful photos was so professional and efficient.
Irina went above and beyond with everything. She even offered and gave back our deposit when we had to change our date due to covid as she was no longer available. We got her back when we changed for a third time and it was the best news we could ask for!!
Our pre wedding photoshoot was a dream! Irina designed a beautiful and huge canvas guest book of one of the photos from the shoot. We received so many compliments from our guests about this! 😍 We cannot wait to hang it up in our new house.
The wedding day itself ran so smooth due to Irina's guidance and professional experience with weddings. We received a sneak peak of about 70 photos within 24hrs of our wedding and all of our photos within 3 weeks!! We couldn't believe it. We could not recommend her more! We have the most beautiful photos for life. Thank you soon much Irina! ❤️

Bayview Hotel Ballycotton
We booked Irina almost immediately after meeting her at a wedding fair. Her enthusiasm and professionalism had us drawn in straight away. Irina was very understanding and accommodating when we had to reschedule due to covid. On our wedding day, from start to finish Irina was so easy to work with (tho we probably weren't). We trusted her to use her own judgement on what would or wouldn't work and based on the photo gallery we have just received, she nailed it. We have since recommended her to a couple of friends and they would be very lucky to have her as we can attest to first hand. Thanks Irina, Rachel & Ken
Sinéad & PJ
Horetown House, Wexford
Irina photographed our wedding recently and I cannot recommend her highly enough! Irina's photographs of our day went above and beyond our expectations, she did an amazing job taking beautiful natural photos that really captured the magic of the day. In addition to that she was so professional and kept everyone calm and on schedule throughout the day which was a fantastic bonus. She was a pleasure to work with from the very first call right through to getting a gorgeous preview album less than 2 days after the wedding and receiving the full album within a month. We are delighted to be be able to relive the day through the photographs Irina captured and know we will treasure them for many years to come. Sinéad & PJ
Laura & Gary
Irina was incredible to work with- Irina's imagination and eye meant we got wedding pictures we could never have thought to ask for! Her night time photos are sensational!
Irina is almost invisible on the day and so unobtrusive you don't know she's there yet every picture you want she captures!
Irina's pictures are incredible, and she manages to capture everyone's natural smiles, facial expressions, laughing moments that when you look at the pictures it brings you back to the day all over again!
We couldn't ask for a better photographer- not just because the photos are amazing but every conversation, email response, interaction was easy! Don't hesitate in choosing her it was one of the best wedding decisions we made
John & Der
The Cliff House Hotel, Ardmore
Irina really helped to make our wedding day in The Cliff House Hotel Ardmore so special. She was such a pleasure to work with, warm and friendly yet professional and well able to corral wayward guests when they were needed for photographs. She blended in so well during the day, we barely noticed her presence in the background during the ceremony and the speeches yet the photos that emerged so quickly afterwards were exactly what we had wanted from the day. Everyone was delighted with the finished results and we would recommend her to anyone looking to capture the perfect memories of a perfect day.

We have been absolutely TRILLED with the images you took for us over the three days of our wedding!...You really captured the mood and most importantly what we are about. It lashed rain on the wedding day (not expected) but you got even better shots in the rain!!!--a miracle!!.. You are so easy to work with and completely listed to everything we wanted even before we did. You were so co-operative and did workarounds when the weather was not our friend!. You are a lady and we have amazing footage of our beautiful wedding as a result. We would one thousand present recommend you to anyone without hesitation

From the second we spoke with Irina we knew she was the one to capture our special day, she was an absolute pleasure to work with, no pressure whatsoever on the day and she had everything on hand the morning even help me cut my slip "Queen", her vibe was just amazing and she made our photos so much fun and captured amazing images of our family & friends, she also made me an image of me and my dad as he couldn't attend on the day which was amazing and i will treasure forever.

Irina was our photographer who we booked in 2018, with our original date being 2020. Irina was amazing transferring our booking over to 2021 and was always reassuring over emails and WhatsApp keeping us positive and excited for our big day.
Finally our day arrived and Irina had been in contact the week before, then arrived early at the venue, she was so professional and a joy to be around the whole day/night. Everyone commented how amazing Irina was. She captured the most beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. Within 24 hours she had sent over a sneak peak which was so exciting to look at on our honeymoon. Then the whole online gallery within 3-4 weeks.
We are so happy with the photos and have enjoyed showing them to friends and family, and we knew for sure that we wanted to order our wedding album also from Irina which arrived a few weeks later and is like an album I have never seen before it is absolutely beautiful and encased in a luxury album box with matching USB.
We wish we could do it all over again to have Irina there also, definitely recommend to book Irina for your wedding day. You will not be disappointed. Thank you so much Irina xx

Irina is an absolutely outstanding photographer, we booked her for our wedding in October 2021, and my guests still talk about her & comment on the amazing photographs she took on the day, She is such a lovely lady & I actually didn't meet her till my wedding morning but her professionalism shone through her emails & phone calls, she was a joy to have on our wedding day & she even helped out with tying up my dress later in the night for dancing, Our photographs are amazing every single one of them, I would highly recommend Irina to anyone looking for a photographer.

Irina was very professional and lovely to deal with. Was very impressed that she sent us on a preview of some of our photos the day after our wedding! Delighted with the photos.
Elaine & Shane
Clonmel Park Hotel
We booked Irina for our wedding day in December 2021 and it was the best decision we could have made! Irina is fantastic to deal with, so professional, friendly and supremely talented at what she does. She was so responsive to emails and queries and had brilliant ideas and suggestions. All of our guests noted how they barely saw her at all throughout the day - a true compliment to a photographer who seamlessly fits in with your day, all the while getting beautiful shots! She took really amazing photographs, capturing the story of our day beautifully (even on one of the wettest days of the year!). We had a preview of shots the morning after the wedding and our full catalogue of photos within 3 weeks. We really couldn't recommend Irina highly enough, she is absolutely wonderful!

We couldn't have chosen a better photographer for our wedding! Since we live abroad, we managed everything online/by phone. From booking to her execution on the day the whole process was smooth and extremely professional.
Irina is such a kind, talented and friendly character making everyone at ease throughout the day.
The photographs were exactly what we wanted capturing the natural emotional moments of the day.
Thank you so much Irina!!
Could not be happier with my experience with Irina. My son is eight weeks old and was not cooperating during the photo shoot and Irina still managed to get some lovely photos. However, Irina invited us back the following week to take some more shots when he was more settled. Such a kind gesture from such a talented woman. She is so kindhearted and such a pleasure to deal with. So impressed with the professional photos Irina has taken. Thank you
Padraig & Marie
We used Irina to do photo shoot to prepare the wedding booklet for our niece. The photos would have been sent to a print designer to incorporate into the final booklet.
The Designer and ourselves found Irina to be professional at all times meeting deadlines for photos to be ready and presented in the media required.
During the photo shoot we found Irina to be relaxed, patient and open to ideas. The entire process was stress free and resulted in great photos of the couple in natural poses.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Irina for any photo sessions. We wish her continued success in her career. We have no doubt that her photos will continue to delight her customer long into the future.

We recent had Irina for our wedding at Blackwater Castle.
Not only is she professional but she was so easy to get on with and her direction was perfect.
We received our wedding photos and wow they were beyond our expectations, she is a very clever lady and knows exactly what to do with a camera.
I truly think it was one of the best spends we had for our wedding worth every penny to look back at the beautiful moments she captured so perfectly.

Amy & Alberto
Best photographer ever!!
Irina was amazing!!!! We cannot thank her enough for making our day so special. She even went out her way to steam a bridesmaid dress!
She is so kind, patient and knows how to take the perfect shots and making you feel at ease. She has understood all the requests we made from the beginning and I can’t believe how amazing the photos have been that she sent to us.
Irina sent us a sneak peak 24 hours after the wedding date, I am still in awe looking at them.
We are so glad to have met Irina. You can really see she take great pride and passion in what she does.
Irina we hope to see you again some time in Ireland. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us.

Irina photographed our wedding on NYE 2020! She was so professional and put us at ease throughout the day! Despite changing our date for a third time due to the pandemic, Irina couldn't have been more accommodating even with all the restrictions in place! Our pictures turned out amazing capturing some memories we will treasure for a lifetime! Again we can't thank you or recommend you enough Irina! X
Chloe & Jamie
This lady is amazing at her job. From someone who hates getting there photo taken you would not think it from the incredible photos Irina got of our magical Day. So professional from start to finish and put use both as ease. Would highly recommend Irina! Thanks so much again.

We were absolutely thrilled with our photographs of the wedding. Irina was so easy to work with. You would hardly know she's there. She's very easy to talk to and nothing is a problem. She captured every special moment of our day. Our photographs are fabulous. We really couldn't recommend Irina enough.
Sarah & Johnny
Happy Memories are exactly what we have after choosing Irina as our wedding photographer. From the outset we were impressed by her personality and professionalism but on the big day we really saw how brilliant she is. Thousands of amazing photos & she was so obliging & patient. We received the link to our photos and our usb, in a lovely presentation box soon after the wedding. The photos captured every aspect of our special day. Our only issue now is deciding which photos are our favourites to make up our album.
We cannot recommend Irina highly enough, she is amazing at her job.
Sarah & Johnny
Irina is a fantastic photographer, so unobtrusive and so patient with children. We have used her service for two family occasions, and would definitely recommend her. We are delighted with all photos we received
Sarah & Michael
The Park Hotel Dungarvan
I would highly recommend Irina for any special occasion. We had out first meeting in the park hotel over coffee where I was instantly put at ease. Irina had an easy check list which covered a lot of the questions I even had and that helped me to figure out what type of photos I wanted of my wedding. When the day arrived irina was amazing! She just went about taking photos as we were all getting ready and didn't make me feel at all nervous. The entire day with Irina was wonderful and I cannot state how professional but more importantly how genuinely caring she was ensuring she captured all special moments. I have the most beautiful photos that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you so much Irina.

Cork Argentine Tango Festivalito
Irina Duane Photography did the photography for us at our annual Cork Argentine Tango Festivalito on 14th April 2018 at the Mall Arts Centre, Youghal, Co. Cork. Irina did an outstanding job from start to finish. From the moment I first emailed Irina she was extremely efficient and offered a fantastic service. She directed me to her website to check out her work and answered all of my questions. She arrived on time to the venue to take the photos. She got on with her job in a very professional manner and was very calm throughout the experience. It is not easy to take photographs of movement (dancers) but Irina captured the essence and atmosphere of the dancers and the Ball. The photographs of the dancers are stunning and we are very happy with her work and would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Irina and all the very best of luck for the future with your business.
There is a saying " you never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory " ...... my family has had some tragedy in recent times whereby we lost some people close to us and one of the things that helps us now is being able to look back on treasured valuable moments that were captured by Irina Duane in a professional way catching every aspect of an important family occasion that we can now lean on these to help us at this sad time
