Professional, Accredited and Insured Wedding and Portrait Photographer
John shot my brother’s wedding in 2013. I was so impressed with his style on the day, I decided to follow his work on Facebook. Over the years, I watched John’s photography work go from strength to strength. When the time came to book a photographer for my own wedding earlier this year, I was left in no doubt. John was the first and only person I contacted, and I was absolutely thrilled when I heard that he was available. On our wedding day itself, John was incredible. Kate and I aren’t particularly fond of being the centre of attention, so John was conscious of this when he went to work. We’re both delighted with the end product and every single photograph John took on that day brings back wonderful memories for Kate and I, that will last a lifetime. Kate Dempsey More...
Our wedding was the 17th August 2019 and we were lucky enough to have John as our photographer. He was so fantastic to deal with, very accommodating and a true professional. He took our requests on board and his work is unbelievable. He captured every moment of our day as it was and the photos are amazing. I would 100% recommend John. Thanks so much More...
Nice little gallery and gift shop.
John, well he was amazing! our photos are just stunning and he captured all the moments we wanted.
We got married on 25th August 2018 and we absolutely hit the Jackpot having John as our Photographer. After searching high & low for a photographer, John was recommended to us by a relative and after a quick look at some of his work on his website we were blown away by his style of photography and obvious talent. Planning the wedding from Australia, we didn't get to meet John until about 10 days prior to the big day, but from the very beginning he made us feel really comfortable. In our meeting before the wedding he gave us some tips and tricks which in turn led to some very natural pictures of us on the day. John came to my house the morning of the wedding and made me and my family so at ease from the get go and took the time to get to know everyone. We love the candid, less-posed and more natural styles of wedding photography and he made that happen more perfectly than we could have imagined. John just seemed to blend in with the crowd, often taken pictures without us or our guests not realizing he was there. When we got the pictures back we were just lost for words, he captured every single moment perfectly. We could not be happier with John's work and cannot recommend him highly enough, we are so happy we chose him to capture our special day. Love, Denise & Patrick McManamon xxx More...

We got married in Galway on 1/06/18. We were lucky enough to have John photograph our day . From the first meeting John made us both feel so at ease and excited. He explained everything to us and gave us great hints and tips . He listened to all our ideas and requests. John was one of the first people with me getting ready in the morning and his kind and fun nature took away any nerves I might have had. I genuinely forgot after about ten minutes that we were being photographed. John went above and beyond for us that day . He got all
The photos we wanted and more. If you want beautiful , unique and brilliant photos then book John . If you want to feel happy, relaxed and heard then book John. We are so overwhelmed with the photos we have seen and cannot wait for them all to come through . John is a true talent and a master of photography . John is also a gentleman and a very decent person . Thank you John � More...
We got married on June 29th 2018 and were blessed to have John. In his blog he mentioned how I got in touch with him first to see his availability before we booked the church and venue. My photos are the answers as to why I wanted to secure John first. He is a master of his trade and does it in such a low key manner. From the first time we met him he was a pleasure to talk and deal with and went out of his way to get the names of all involved so he could make the experience more personal. Looking back on our photos he captured every moment of the day perfectly and every time I look at the photos it's like reliving the day all over. We would 100% recommend John and I only have positive things to say from our dealings with him. He is a little treasure and we wish him all the best for the future. Xx More...
We were so happy to have John with us on our special day in August. He made everyone feel happy and relaxed and at ease, in his own words he was a "Gentleman" �. Even in the run up to the wedding he was great for advice on the band and car hire. We loved the genuine moments he captured in other weddings and can't wait to see our pictures!

Today we took possession of our long-awaited wedding photographs.
We say long awaited as we felt our photographer John McMahon on the day was both very professional and innovative in shot selection and compilation and could not wait to see his vision. To say we were not disappointed is an understatement the presentation and content were absolutely mesmerising, and they will be a long-lasting reminder of a wonderful day captured in such an innovative way.
His attention to detail and his interaction with the people show in the results and we can only say that if you want to capture the memories of your special day in a special way then look no further than John McMahon Photography.
Thank you so much John may your well-deserved success continue.

We booked John after meeting him at a wedding fair and he was highly recommend to us from friends of ours. His work was brilliant and he is a true gentleman and is so easy to work with. He made us so relaxed on the day and was brilliant with our flower girl getting some beautiful photos. He has a great eye for detail and is a true professional. He captured every moment of our day and we couldn't recommended him enough. Thanks very much John, Laura & Peter. More...
I am the owner of VIP TAXIS GALWAY and operate VIP WEDDING CARS and have had the pleasure of doing a lot of Weddings with this absolutely Fantastic Photographer.
When I arrive at the Brides House on the morning of a Wedding and see John my day just gets better, he is so relaxed and professional and makes no fuss whilst all the time capturing those precious moments through out the Day. Some Photographers can be very daunting and leave couples so stressed out but not John.
His eye for a great shot is unbelievable as you can see from the photos on this page and I have learnt a little bit about photography from him. He will of course do the staged traditional photos but all the time he is snapping away getting the photos couples don't even know are been taken.
I highly recommend John and look forward to meeting him more in the Future.

John is an absolute gent and the best photographer this side of the Shannon to boot!! We collected our wedding images this evening and to say we love them is an understatement!! So many fabulous shots lots of ones that I didn't even realise he took on the day!!(sign of a true professional) I would highly recommend him to anyone I felt he went above and beyond the call for our Wedding from the very first day I met him right up to this evening I felt he was totally invested in us and our day and instantly knew how important it was to both of us. I feel he is someone that I will go back to again and again for any kind of Photograpy work he is so easy to talk to so easy to work with and just an all round really nice person. John thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our day it was simple our pleasure to have had you involved. Thank you! More...
We got family photos done a few wks back at the charity photo shoot! I wanted pics with my own family then my partner & son. John oblidged us & didnt mind at all! He was so friendly, fantastic at his job, so professional. He made us all feel at ease esp my 8 month old who wont sit still the best of times!! Thanks again john, we all loved the pictures, they are perfect. More...
I have to agree with my sister Siobhan’s earlier review , John was kind and patient all day long. I don’t think we were an easy group to capture-extended cousins and all! He made our mother feel at ease at all times and made sure the bride and groom got some smashing shots. Highly recommend him. More...
We just want to thank you again John for last Friday! You were an absolute gentleman and put everyone at ease from the moment you arrived at the house! You were so patient with us and you made sure you got all the photos we asked for � we can’t wait to see the rest of the photos!! Sharon & Michéal More...
Having john as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made in regards our wedding . From the second he walked into our house that morning it was the most easy-going, stress free definitely will recommend you to everyone can’t thank you enough� joanne & Brian
Hi John sorry about the delay in doing this. First of all thank you so much for all you did for Sharon and I before, during and after the wedding (5/4/18) from the first email you were so easy to deal with and your level of professionalism and just know how was brilliant.
What can I say about the day of the wedding Sharon, her bridesmaids, parents and family members that were in her house in the morning were very complementary of how good you were and just how easy you went about your business. When you arrived at the church you got a few shots with myself and groomsmen and then the mass flew by. Sharon and I thought we could spot you during the mass but I am sure you were hiding somewhere taking those quiet pictures unnoticed. We arrived at the claddagh for the wedding pictures and nearly had a battle to get the right spot on the pier with a quick dash as there was another bride and groom there but didn't go to the right spot. We spent 15-20 minutes max and it was done so professional and also quick (which we wanted)
Everyone at the reception were commenting that you were so easy to deal with and were not over intrusive. We were trying to keep an eye on you for the reception but once again you were taking those unposed photos from somewhere unnoticed.
Thanks so much for being a major part of our wedding Sharon and I would like to thank you once again for making it so easy for us and we would 100% recomend you to anyone. We are so looking forward to the full pictures.
Take care John.

We got married on the 5th May 2018. When we first got engaged we researched many photographers and we met with a few of them but we just did not connect with them. Then we met John and immediately we connected with him. John was so professional right from the beginning and knew exactly the photos we wanted to capture! John is so friendly and easy going. He instantly makes you feel very comfortable and stress free. We booked John up until a few dances. From the moment he arrived at my house right throughout the day; he made us feel so relaxed. Our bridal party was so relaxed around him and he even knew them all on a first name basis! He captured all the special moments possible on our big day! We would just like to say a high thank you John for everything!! We would highly recommend John to all couples getting married!! Marisa & Adrian More...
If you are looking for a photographer who will put you and all your guests at ease, is incredibly pleasant and friendly to have around on one of the biggest days of your life and captures the special moments spectacularly, then John is your man.
A true gent from start to finish I cannot sing johns praises enough or speak highly enough of him. He is absolutely fantastic and we are beyond thrilled with our photos of our big day xx More...
John was my brother's photographer at his wedding last weekend, i just want to say how kind he was to my mother & how much patience he had with all the 7 sister's ��� I would highly recommend him
Becca Gibbons Varley
I couldn't recommend John highly enough, both myself and my husband where very camera shy but John just made us all feel so at ease on our wedding day, as my mam says 'he's pure class'. John captured all those special moments on the day without us even knowing he was there. He was a pleasure to work with and I'll look forward to working with him again. More...
Thank you so much John for making us feel so at ease & for doing such a fantasic job for our wedding in September. Neither Ollie or I would be great on front of the camera but you made us feel so comfortable & you are such a gent. We had great fun, as did all the bridal party! We couldn't have asked for a nicer person, better pictures or more relaxed atmosphere, you really are the full package. All the pictures are just brilliant, we couldn't be happier. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone, one of the best around :)
Thanks again John. More...

Want to say a massive Thank you to John from myself and Shane. You were absolutely brilliant and I would have no problem recommending you. Right from the house in the morning until the first dance you made us feel at ease the whole day. We had some laughs along the way.

John is the ultimate professional, myself and Shane cannot thank him enough for the fabulous wedding photos and for making this part of our special day a fun and enjoyable experience. He is a true gentleman and made us and our families totally at ease while giving us fantastic memories for life. He had all the fine details down to a tee and i cannot recommend him highly enough. More...
I don't even know where to start about John! one of the best decision we made regarding the wedding. his fun, positive and relaxed nature not only put everyone at ease but helped us to forget the camera was even there. he is the perfect person to have around on what can be a stressful morning and everyone is still talking about how calm and friendly he is. Within 2 days we received some sneak peeks of the photographs which was so exciting and helped us to relive some of the fun of the day. John has a wonderful vision for photography and sees opportunities as opposed to obstacles. he is so incredibly talented and we consider ourselves so lucky that he was there with us on our big day. I absolutely cannot wait to see the rest of the photographs and will be highly recommending John Mcmahon to anyone who will listen to me!! More...
John was fantastic from the first day we met him. John was exactly what we sought for in a wedding photographer, easy going, professional and captured some fantastic images. I can't recommend him highly enough. More...
Top class photographer.
Ian O Brien
Absolutely savage photographer.Such a easy going and nice person to deal with.Would highly recommend .
I want to start off by saying a HUGE THANK YOU to this wonderful man and to describe his talent for photography as excellent is only a start. My Husband and I booked John for our wedding after seeing the kind and gentle way in which he treated my best friend and her groom on their wedding day. On the 1st June 2017 he landed at my house in Muigh-Inis, Carna, Connemara and instantly just slotted in as one of our own getting ready for the big day. Hardly knew he was there as he went along capturing the most intimate and truly magical moments that I will treasure forever more. At the church he caught myself and my groom chatting and nattering away and caught our little glances to each other when we thought no one was looking.... Then after the ceremony he braved the elements, and with the threat of rain and the high winds blowing my veil in every direction, he captured the most stunning photographs. I could never have ever imagined what he saw and caught on camera and exceeded any expectation that we ever had. John you made our day so wonderful and we know you will forever be our friend. With true admiration for such a gentleman (and his camera) Your pals MaryCatherine and Tommy Jordan More...
Myself and Shane cannot thank John enough for all he did at our wedding last Saturday. He was the consummate professional! He carried out his duties to the highest of standards. It is with the greatest of confidence that we would recommend John to anyone. Thanks john for everything. Claire and Shane O' Connor. More...
We would highly recommend John as a wedding photographer. From the first day we met, his professional and personal approach was second to none. During our wedding day John made us feel at ease and was unobtrusive and efficient. We recently received our album and the photo quality, editing and album design is top-class. More...
We had John as our photographer for our wedding on March 18th. We couldn't of asked for a more professional photographer. He was excellent, everything was done so efficiently and without any fuss. He got the kids on side straight off and capture some fantastic shots. None of our requests were any hassle to John. So grateful to him for capturing so many perfect memories of our special day. Thanks so much John! Emily & Seán! More...

After our first meeting with John we made a pretty quick decision that we would have him as our wedding photographer and we are so glad we did. He is a gent and so easy to work with. He was so relaxed which made our experience of the day all the better. The quality of his work speaks for itself and he really captured some beautiful shots and ones we will treasure.
