Jason Finnane born & based in the heart of Ireland is an artist from an early age & his work has appeared in magazines such like Wedding Journal, Social and Personal, Confetti to name few... He is one of the most sought-after wedding photography picture makers & has enjoyed over 16 years in business with many awards.
Today he is known for his creative & emotional storytelling wedding books exquisitely designed and styled. Still working hard to be at the top of his profession, his popularity grows every year due to flattering testimonials and his professionalism, good nature and his instinctive eye for capturing moments and unerring ability to take beautiful pictures that speak for themselves.
"I am all about art, design, music, books, film, travel, and being a husband & father of 3***
I for sure have learned to appreciate and value all those little moments life shows us if and when we look.
I want my clients to remember the experience through the emotions they relive in the moments in time I am
lucky to witness and Capture Forever.
All of these things are a huge inspiration to find new clues to develop my photography language. My photographic Experience & pathway has grown from fashion & my natural style, by seeking the simplicity to go straight to the essence, showing the wonderful fragility of the soul, expressed in a Soft and Emotional way. I want to photograph spontaneous and authentic moments by using natural light as the only instrument to create timeless images. I want our pictures to have that sense of mystery driven by a feeling. Storytelling is the most important part of giving structure and tone to the photograph as well as how the images are artistically captured.
I want our stories to be cinematic and focus on your feelings.I LOOK TO GO STRAIGHT TO THE HEART & SOUL”
These elements help to create, in addition to memory, a coherent world. I love telling every detail of a story, for me it is simple things to give true value and it was just love for simple things that lead us to a more humane and poetic photography. Whether it’s a wedding, an elopement, a commitment, I will document our time together, trying to create a pleasant and Unforgettable experience for you, like spending time with your friends. I believe in the beauty of everyday life. That ordinary may be extraordinary, that small moments are the most important. I want simple things and big feelings and share extraordinary experience with you. Your photos should not be forced.
They should be natural and emotional, a direct reflection of your story and Relationship.
My clients are important to me and I put my soul in telling their stories. I try to make the relationship with them become a collaboration, and to be able to establish a friendly relationship, sharing emotions, smiles and unique and Memorable moments that create a bond that we will always remember forever. Trust is a big part of our connection as I will get to see so much of your special day...tears, laughter, a look, a smile, the first kiss as Husband & Wife, I love when even just for one day I become a friend or family member to be right there to capture every moment & sometimes when needed to be floating in the background.
I Love what I do, there is nothing more satisfying than the tears/joy a picture brings to someone who genuinely love what we have made together. without the wonderful people I work with, my pictures are empty. I am a people watcher & always have been.. It’s an Honor for me to be allowed photograph one of the most special days of their lives and when I process what we have captured together by complimenting the image with a touch of art, it becomes more than a photograph, it becomes a timeless piece, a moment captured Forever.
Have been meaning to write this review for a year. Dermot did our wedding photography and we were extremely happy with his work. He sent us a small sample of photos two days after the wedding, which was great. It was lovely to have a sneak peak. On the day itself we felt very relaxed with him, he was very accommodating, and the photos he took were brilliant! In fact, so good they ended up in a wedding magazine! More...
We hired Jason for our wedding in 2015 and could not have been happier with our photos. Like a lot of Irish some of our bridal party do not like having their photos taken however Jason's laid back approach put everyone at ease and meant we got some great photos that really captured the feeling of our day! We were delighted to see the results in our album and would definitely recommend FINNimaje for anyone's big day! More...
Unreal photographer!! Highly recommend.
Got a photo taken at my brother’s wedding and you worked wonders. The colours are amazing, vivid and bright. It turned out really well. Thank you.
My sister in law and I found Finnimaje at a wedding show years ago, for her wedding. He did such an amazing job for her and my brother. So when it came to my own wedding a few years later, I knew exactly who I wanted. Jason came all the way to inishbofin and took the most fabulous shots. He made our special day last forever! X More...
We had our wedding in Portugal and Jason had no problem of coming over.I am not a camera easy woman,but with him I was able to relax and enjoy all his fotoshoot-they came out great!he was full of different ideas and angles,so pictures I have now are fabulous!so happy we had him as a photographer and as a friend-would recommend his services to anyone!all the best with the business and wishing you all the success-kisses from Daiva&Bobby More...
Jason definitely receives a 5* review from us.
We had great fun on the morning of our wedding which was induced by Jason's relaxed demeanour and confident ability to set up beautiful photos without our knowing.
The whole day went without a hitch and Jason caught every minute of it-telling our story in the form of a beautiful album.
From getting ready at home-to the ceremony and even a trip to the circus for some really vivid unusual shots!
We wouldn't change a single thing and our gorgeous photo album is definitely one of our most prized possessions!
We would 100% recommend FINNimaje !! More...
Fantastic photographer! Could not recommend enough. Jason provides a highly professional, yet friendly and cool service that put my husband and I at our ease from start to finish. He captured our day spectacularly, so happy with our Album!! Thank you so much Jason � More...

Dermot took some photographs of my chocolates and me for a piece in the independent last November I was really happy with the results and I HATE having my photograph taken
Having previously experienced Jason’s finesse and character as part of a different bridal party there was only one choice when it came to our big day!! He just brings a sense of calm to the days proceedings and you just have to place your trust in him and the result is magnificent. Always bringing a laugh and a smile to the party we cannot recommend him highly enough. Also the end product is just amazing , it truly is a work of art and will be forever cherished. More...
We recently got our wedding album from Dermot and it brought all the memories of the day together just like a story. From start to finish Dermot has been professional, reliable and friendly. He is quick to reply to questions, all our guests thought he was fantastic, full of energy and enthusiasm and of course captured beautiful photos. Would highly recommend him. Thank you! More...
We are absolutely delighted with our photos and Dermot was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Dermot took the time to get a sense of everything we wanted from our photos and delivered it all, and more!!! He has a great way with guests and gets the best out of everyone and every shot. Thank you Dermot!! Highly recommended. More...

We are thrilled with the photos and found it very difficult to pick some to print as they were all gorgeous! The 2 boys didn't even know the pictures were being taken
We would highly recommend Martin, he made everyone so comfortable and it was the most relaxed photo shoot we have done. He is very professional and knows exactly what to capture, he really has a great eye for detail.
The photos look amazing and he really captured the special little moments between the two kids.
He is also very reasonably priced and has a budget to suit everyone.
We will definitely be back to him for more photos.
Thanks Martin More...

We highly recommend Dermot. So professional, thorough and captured every single special moment and many many more. He really cared and was passionate about the day, scenery and our wishes. �We got our first round of photos the very next day and couldn’t be happier with the results. Can’t wait to see more. THANK YOU so much. More...
Myself and my wife Ciara, plus all our family were absolutely delighted with Dermot’s relaxed professionalism on the day. A great time keeper, and was so patient with the kids! A great creative eye and open to those fun creative shots, to make the day more personal. He included an engagement shoot, which helped shift our nerves on the day, plus included a picture for our guest to sign - so thoughtful! We would highly recommend him, plus he is affordable too. Plus we were overwhelmed by a sneak peak, less than 24 hours after the wedding- what a man! Can’t wait to see the rest in a few weeks! More...
What can I say We are absolutely blown away with how perfect our photos have turned out! We met Dermot at a wedding fair & booked him for our big day. We were so impressed with Dermot’s knowledge of our venue at fernhill that we knew he would be perfect! Members of our family & guests have all commented on Dermot’s professionalism throughout the day. Our photos really speak for themselves! He put all of us at ease and helped to relax everybody so the pictures looked natural ! Dermot knew the venue so well which was great. He recommended some night shots which turned out AMAZING! Dermot also went above his call of duty helping us with different queries we had throughout the day ! Thank you Dermot you really captured our day so magically, which fits right in with our Disney theme! I cannot wait to see the rest of the photos!! � More...

Dermot is fabulously relaxed & super easy to work with... even when you don't like your pic taken!! ;-) thank you again Dr. M. I. Dugast
Dermott sent me and my husband a sneak peek of our photos 2 days after our wedding, I cried with happiness. From the memory card to the wedding album it was all packaged beautifully. THANK YOU for being there on our big day. I cant find the words to express how perfect all of the photos are. You were an absolute joy to work with. You made me feel extremely relaxed and the groom who was super awkward, comfortable and at ease. �� I’m sure we will be in touch again but for now enjoy your busy season and best of luck with all that 2018 bring. We cant wait to show off the album to all our family and friends Mr & Mrs Griffin 16th December 2017 More...

Dermot, we would just like to thank you so so much for our wedding photographs and wedding album - we love them and can't stop looking at them since we got them from you. It was so hard to pin down 80 from the 700+ photos you sent us! Our album beautifully captures all the special aspects of our day! You were so easy to work with and our photographs and album are just what we had hoped for and more! They are beautiful. You are such a professional and put everyone at ease on from the minute you arrived the morning of our wedding day, making sure everything ran smoothly! We cannot recommend you enough! Thanks so much again for everything! Siobhán and Tomás More...
We had Dermot shoot our wedding photographs on 27th Aug’17 at Dunmore house Hotel and surrounding locations. I can’t praise him highly enough.

We now have photos to treasure and will always remember his help on the day. Claire and Leon. More...
Had Dermot photograph my Christmas wedding on the 1st December 2017. Dermot's calm and relaxed approach was a welcome addition to a busy morning with a large bridal party.

Big Thank You ... More...
Dermot, a massive thank you for making our day so special. You exceeded all expectations we had for a photographer. From start to finish you were not only professional, but a gentleman who effortlessly put everyone involved at ease. You were the reason I got to the church on time following the unexpected start to the day due to the weather! Everyone was complementing you before they ever saw a picture! The sneak peak photographs are fantastic, we are delighted with them! They perfectly captured our day in such an enchanting way that I cannot wait to see the rest. I am so grateful to have had you work with us on our special day. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone in the future who is looking for a talented and creative photographer. More...
We are so delighted with the photos - very professional, and patient with my children. I will highly recommend to everyone.
One of the most talented photographer on the island :-) fully recommend!
Had Dermot as our wedding photographer on 25/09/2015.He was extremely friendly and professional.An absolute perfectionist.I would highly recommend him.He sent us a few sneak peeks of the wedding pics yesterday and they look great.Really looking forward to seeing the end result More...
I have been lucky enough to work with Hector a couple of times, and really really cant recommend getting a shoot here enough.Hector is super professional and also super friendly. He let me know in advance how to prepare for shoot day, simple things like shaving in advance so you don't get red bumps or anything that would show up in the pictures, which I thought was a great touch.I was really nervous to do my first ever photographic shoot but he really put me at my ease, keeping a steady flow of chatter going and helping me relax. He gives brilliant direction so I was comfortable with every pose as he made it all so easy for me and I really could not be more thrilled with the photographs, even if they may not be something I want to show the grandkids in years to come, I will always have them for myself.You can bring items you have from home like corsets and lingere, but he also has a dress up box full of incredible outfits to peruse, so you don't have to worry about what to bring with you. More...
Amazing service and so pleased with the final products. Would definitely recommend!
Hi Dermot, Absolutely thrilled with all of our photographs. You captured every part of our day. I don't know how we are going to pick 55 photos for our album we have a hard task ahead. Thank you again, could not have picked anyone better, more professional or nice to capture our day. pleasure to work with you. Can't wait for the album. Deirdre & Eric More...
Gareth is an absolute gentleman who never fails to deliver.

Very good staff very friendly and helpful great with kids and babies makes you feel at ease getting photos done for first time... This my second time getting pictures taken with them and the photos do be lovely when you get them. Highly recommended More...
We liked our first session with our daughter that we had to go again only a couple of month later! Would love to visit every month - ended up with way more photos than we expected too as they were all SO good! Have recommended to friends who have been delighted with the work as well. More...
Great place for a photo session. Friendly and professionalism. Highly recommended
