Tara and Dave made our wedding day so special. Our photos came out better than we could have imagined. We are having a hard time picking out the ones we like best...there are so many! We cannot recommend then enough to anyone who is in need of a photographer! Thank you for giving us great photos to remember our special day forever. :) More...
Tara and Dave photographed our wedding last Friday and I couldn't recommend them highly enough ! I'm not someone who loves the camera but felt instantly at ease with Tara and the boys had heaps of fun with Dave. As well as doing their own jobs both kept our day running smoothly by keeping track of time which is vital on the day! We are so looking forward to seeing the final results in the coming weeks.Thanks Tara and Dave for all your hard work xx More...
Thanks Dave & Tara for capturing the special moment I proposed to my Fiancé at Ross Castle in May 2017. Even though it was a stressful day for me because of the weather as you know :-) everything turned out perfectly and you made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. We loved the photos and video! Congratulations on the birth of your second baby, we hope all is going well for you.

Tara and Dave were fantastic! You guys were a big part of our wedding day, Aoife and I are so happy we chose you guys to shoot our wedding. You kept everything on time, everyone relaxed and managed to capture our day with the most beautiful photographs. Dave's tie and flower skills were invaluable for the boys! :-)
Two lovely and extremely talented people who I cannot recommend enough! More...

I really don't have the right words to describe our experience with Tara and Dave! They are just the most amazing,friendly,go for it people. From the first minute to the last on the day nothing was out of the question. It rained so much that Tara had to get a change of shoes and Dave new socks but you'd never have known that for a second!! Dave seems better at reading the weather than Evelyn Cusack and knew when we would have half an hour to get outside so they whisked us away in their jeep and had us done and dusted before the half hour was up and the heavens opened again,well done Dave! They became part of our day and didn't make any of the posed pictures seem forced which we were dreading.When we mentioned paint balling and zip wiring in our dresses we thought we'd get a funny look but instead they had it all organised in a heartbeat. Two more professional,kind,fun and slightly off centre people you couldn't meet and we look forward to more fun photoshoots in the years to come xxxPaula and Adeline More...
We collected the photos of our wedding from the very talented Tara and Dave. First of all we were blown away by the photos... all 800 of them! They captured so many precious moments we'll cherish forever. From the posed shots to the many natural shots of family and friends, each one is nicer than the next. They also surprised us with one of our favourite pictures beautifully framed! We couldn't recommend Tara and Dave more! Thank you both so much xxxx More...
We got our family photos taken by Dave and Tara and we are absolutely delighted with dem, so much so dey made me cry when i saw the slideshow���. Dave and Tara wer such a pleasure to deal and are gifted at there job, so relaxed and easygoing. Thank you so much we are thrilled with our photos���. More...
Had our first experience with Tara and Dave last weekend for our little mans communion. What a great couple really relaxed everyone in only a couple of minutes. The kids took to Dave straight away and he had them actually having fun getting their pics taken. Couldn’t recommend them both enough. So helpful and nothing is a problem. Thanks again Tara and Dave. Can’t wait to c pics. More...
Just got my wedding pics back and we could not be happier, they done an amazing job and are seriously talented!
Like honestly I wouldn’t be the most photogenic and usually would cringe when I see pics of myself but I am soooo happy with all the pics, they are better than I could of ever imagined, we love them! They captured so many natural moments throughout the day along with fabulous family shots. Honestly will be recommending Tara and Dave to any brides to be, they really were amazing and lovely to deal with. We had such a good laugh throughout the day, absolutely delighted they were our wedding photographers� Thanks again. More...
I saw the WONDERFUL work herself and her husband Dave did for my friend's wedding two years previous and I simply had to book her!! From the very beginning, Tara was a pleasure to work with! Emails back and forth were always answered within hours and no question was ever too silly or too much trouble! We booked the full package and we were not disappointed!
We met Tara and Dave at our engagement shoot in September 2017. We wanted our three dogs involved in the shoot so we decided to do it all at our house. The pictures were so natural and really captured the fun and joy that our dogs bring us both! Tara and Dave have a wonderful eye for detail and see photographic opportunities in the most unlikely of places! (Our garage door, garden shed and rickety old garden bridge never looked so good!!) We were immediately put at ease and got into the swing of things in no time! My now husband wouldn't be a huge fan of being in pictures but was delighted with the way it all worked out.
Fast forward to our wedding day. Hurricane Ophelia had arrived on the Monday of our wedding week and we were housebound for the day! The phone lines, WiFi, mobile networks and electricity were all off until the Wednesday! I had to collect wedding dress, booklets, meet priest etc etc during those days and it really was very stressful (though I didn't let on at the time!).
News of Storm Brian came then for the Friday night before our wedding right up to 1pm of the day of our wedding. It was a very stressful Friday night listening to the wind and rain batter my parents house high up on our hill in Ballymakeera!! I kept looking at my dress in the dress bag wondering would I make it to the Gougane Barra Church!
Tara and Dave arrived early on the Saturday morning in the middle of the storm after driving well over an hour in horrendous weather! They were so calm and relaxed and put us completely at ease! They captured some wonderful shots of the morning and this is a real credit to their professionalism because we were confined indoors due to the crazy weather conditions! I'm all for going out in wellies and umbrellas but there really was no way to get out and not be destroyed! We did try!
We had our ceremony in Gougane Barra. Due to Storm Brian, everyone had to squeeze indoors! It was so lovely and intimate but I imagine a nightmare for the photographers! Tara and Dave rose to the challenge and took many beautiful pictures throughout the ceremony. They are so discreet, you really don't notice they are there clicking away!! They blend in to any situation! We even managed a few quick shots outside!
We went onwards to The Imperial Hotel in Cork City and what a wonderful evening we had! Tara and Dave stayed well after the first dance and we have some fantastic pictures as a result!! I Ioved seeing people's reactions during the speeches and seeing shots of people dancing. We got beautiful family pictures which we will treasure forever.
For anyone looking for wedding photographers, then look no further than Tara Donoghue Photography! Tara and Dave are a pleasure to deal with and their work is so professional and fun! They deserve every success and the Wedding Photographer 2018 Brides of Kerry win was so well deserved!!!
Thanks Tara and Dave for everything!! X More...
We had a wonderful experience with both Tara and Dave this past summer. They made our day extremely special and were so fun and easy to work with. We loved the thoughtfulness and creativity they brought to our wedding photography and we love showing our photos off to family and friends.
On top of all of that awesomeness they are extremely lovely people and we so enjoyed spending the day with them. Simply put, we could not have had a better experience :). More...
This rating system needs 10 stars because Dave and Tara were absolutely dazzling. To say the made our day would be to do them a disservice. They are both ultimate professionals and made us feel comfortable, relaxed and at ease despite this being a hugely nerve wracking day for both of us. Ever helpful and encouraging, any issues we had with time constraints or unplanned detours were quickly remedied. Hugely talented at the work that they both do, we could not possibly recommend this duo enough.

Simply put, Tara and Dave are amazing. From the first email to the follow up emails after the wedding, they were so professional and at the same time, such good fun. They offer a wide range of packages and it was so easy to get everything we wanted as standard, engagement photoshoot and wedding albums included. They were so fabulous to have around the morning of the wedding, such a calming influence and they both know exactly what to say and do to solve every possible ‘crisis’! We had mentioned to Tara and Dave about maybe getting some scenic photos on the day of the wedding, they were both completely up for it, so on the day, we took off hiking and got some amazing shots that we will treasure forever. We both really wanted photos that didn’t have us standing posing for the day and that’s what we got with Tara and Dave. We have all the family portraits that we love, but all of our favourite ones are the ones that we didn’t even know were being taken. Now we are trying to think of any excuses to try to hire Tara and Dave again! How soon can we re-new our vows More...
