Reviews of David McAuley Photography(10)

I don't even know where to start when it comes to thanking David. From the moment we met him at a wedding fair, to reviewing our pictures after the big day he has been amazing. He was professional throughout and all our guests commented at how he really got involved in our day, taking amazing pictures throughout it all, some of which I hadn't even noticed he was taking, creating some really beautiful natural pictures. He had an amazing way of helping us to relax and a fantastic eye for the right shots. He stayed so late in to the night and went above and beyond for us. I would and have recommended him to friends, his work is fab and he caught every moment of our fantastic day.

Choosing a wedding photographer was one of the hardest tasks when planning our wedding and I am delighted to say that we couldn't have been happier with our choice. David was fantastic! When we first met him he offered such great guidance and had so many ideas based on what he knows works best on the day but was also always willing to listen to what we wanted and strived to give us what we had in our minds for the photos. On meeting David for a second time a few weeks before the wedding we were so impressed with the time he spent asking about family members, those who were part of the wedding party and those who we wanted to make sure we got specific photos with; David payed such close attention to this which meant his approach on the day was so personal. David was extremely professional but his personality brought a warmth and friendliness to the day. So many of our guests commented on how friendly he was.We are delighted that David was a part of our day and are thrilled with the photos; he captured each stage of the day so well. Myself, my husband and our family highly recommend him. Thanks again David!

I was very skeptical when I started looking at photographers for our wedding, so when a mutual friend introduced me to David, I couldn't wait to meet him and talk through our wedding plans. We had a Marvel Superhero themed wedding in February of this year and you could tell David was nearly as excited as we were. When we first met with him he completely put us both at ease, giving us tips and the rundown of how the day would go. As this was 2+ years to our wedding those were things we hadn't even began to think of or look at and with David's help it was all sorted very quickly and happily. Before we knew it our day was here and David arrived spot on time, he took about 5 mins to set up and that was him for the day, again he kept things very natural, half the time we didn't even know he was there. Everyone told us afterwards how he never stopped shooting and captured every moment. It was only two weeks ago when we did our first viewing that we realised he really did capture EVERY single moment and we're so glad he did. We also opted for the photo booth add-on and everyone loved the freedom of this and availed of a few cheeky snaps. We couldn't be happier we trusted David to capture our day and can't wait until the next event we can avail of his services again! Nickki

I think the most difficult vendor to choose is the photographer. It took me months to look at every possible photographer. I came across David while looking for a videographer and while I was watching the wedding video I was really impressed with the photos that were being taken. The bride looked comfortable, the poses were natural yet unique and the background was beautiful. After doing a little bit of research I found the photographer David McAuley and I contacted him, he was quick to respond and answer any questions. Since I was planning my wedding from the US, a quick turn around time was important to me. His prices were very fair and his portfolio spoke quality. Most importantly, upon meeting him, he was friendly, accommodating, and professional. He arrived on time day of the wedding and went straight to work and he even stayed later when we asked him to. I liked that he was flexible to take any photos I requested at the time, yet he also used his creativity to produce great images! Not only did we love working with him, but our bridal party, and guests were thrilled with his work. I really enjoyed working with David McAuley and I highly recommend him as your next photographer.

After looking around for a wedding photographer, I came across David's website and decided to contact him regarding a consultation for our wedding photography. David responded to my request in a very timely manner and we made an appointment for him to come to my house to meet both myself and my future husband, Ray.

He arrived on time and was well prepared for the consultation. He showed us samples of his wedding photography, which we were very impressed with. He also took all of our details and those of the wedding party so he would be familiar with who was who on the big day. He made extensive notes as to where we wanted our photo taken after the ceremony. He also advised on what services he had on offer, eg a photo booth, and what his wedding packages entailed. He spent a good while trying to figure exactly what myself and Ray wanted/expected from him so he would be able to tailor his services to our needs.

On the day itself, he arrived early and was calmness itself :-) He was non invasive, but managed to take a lot of photos of myself, and everyone involved in the wedding preparations. After a good many shots were taken, he left so he could catch up with the groom at the Registry Office, so he could take more photos there and be prepared for when I arrived.

We had our main photso taken at the botanic gardens. David was fantastic in picking out great spots for the photos to be taken, and he took both the formal photos as well as the casual ones, when people weren't aware he was aiming his camera at them. By doing this, he got a real feel of the day captured for us, which we absolutely loved! He was great at directing the poses we should take and who should stand where etc. He was so calm, he got everyone relaxed and it really showed in the photos that everyone was having a bit of fun :-)

I'd HIGHLY recommend David as your wedding photographer. He was professional, punctual, calm, friendly, well organised and best of all, the photographs turned out amazing!

What can I say. From the very beginning David was a true gentleman and professional. From our first meeting David knew exactly what we were looking for. He understood that we did not want nor need many staged photos and captured the very essence of who we are as a family, couple. David spent the day with us until late at night capturing the fun and magic behind our day and made our guest enjoy the experience. he captured so many special memories, ones that both myself and Barry will cherish forever.
Thank you David for being a huge part of our wedding and would highly recommend you to our friends and family

We booked David a year in advance of our wedding and from day one after meeting him in his studio he was excellent, we knew we were in good hands. On the day he made everyone feel at ease, he really listened to us and ensured he was giving us what we wanted. We had David booked up until our first dance and he ended up staying long after capturing all our guests dancing and enjoying themselves! We have had a viewing session of all our photos and are so impressed, choosing our pictures for the album was so hard. ( I would have all of them in if I could!) I would definitely recommend David to anyone looking to book a wedding photographer. I couldn't fault a thing!
Review by Dee
We got married in June this year and David was our photographer. From start to finish our experience with David was outstanding, not only is he a gentleman but he is highly professional in very aspect of his work. From time keeping to his kindly mannerism we could not fault David. He made our day very relaxed and fun throughout all the photographs. When looking at all the photos he had take I was amazed that he caught every special moment of our day on camera and even though the Irish summer didn't hold out for us David still made the most of the little dry weather we got. We can not thank and recommend him enough. Thank you David
