We were married in Ballymagarvey House, December 2016 and truly had the best and most memorable day of our lives. The latter has been confirmed by the undeniable talent of David Maury: pure perfection. We chose not to have a videographer so it was so important to us that the photographs reflected the happiness that we felt on our wedding day. David worked solo and from the moment he began the day with the bridal party, until the last photo was taken as everyone partied and danced like maniacs, he was stealth, precise, friendly, fun and utterly invisible at times: magic! We were so comfortable in his company and what we love most is the story his pictures tell: we look at our photos and are transported back to every moment. No poses were forced, and we are definitely not camera adoring folk but David adapted to us so that everything was just natural, simple and so enjoyable. The best part was hearing from guests how sociable he was for the day: good craic at an Irish wedding is a must and this French man has bundles of it! We would recommend David to everyone, and have! We can’t thank him enough for his integral role in our wedding... so merci beaucoup et fin!
The minute we saw David’s work, we knew we had found the perfect photographer for our wedding and how right we were!! His attention to detail and relaxed, unobtrusive style is what drew us to him and we booked him from Perth without even speaking! Best decision we ever made!! He captured the most spectacular moments of our day which we will cherish forever and our album is a masterpiece, every picture as stunning as the next! Thank you David for being so amazing and for helping make our day so special.
After our initial meeting with David, my husband and I left with a feeling of absolute confidence that the task of photographing our wedding was in good hands. David was very friendly, relaxed and professional. I’d already looked at some of his photos online and liked his style and looking through a sample album at our meeting confirmed that we would be happy with the end result. Several reviews online referred to his relaxed, easygoing style and how well he got on with people, and this was something that was very important to us, as we were having a relatively small wedding and we both wanted it to be as relaxed, unstressful a day as possible. On the day of the wedding David arrived promptly in the midst of a flurry of hair and makeup preparations and was very unobtrusive, while still remaining friendly and pleasant. We took family photos in a lovely nature trail in Kilcullen and a couple of people commented to me that he had a very nice manner as he assembled the various groups (no easy task with large immediate families on both the bride and groom’s sides!), and later at our reception (in Fallons of Kilcullen), our friends also commented on his engaging manner. When it came to selecting our photos, it was a difficult task, as David had caught so many lovely moments. What really made the album so special are the many moments David caught of people including us while unaware of the camera; beautiful, natural moments that really tell the story of our wedding day. Those to whom we have shown the album have been equally impressed by the atmosphere he captured and the quality of the work. Both my husband and I couldn’t recommend David highly enough.
We had the absolute pleasure of David to be our photographer on our wedding day at the beautiful venue leixlip Manor and Gardens. David is a gentleman and his gentle nature and presence was amazing. David albums are a work of art he truly has an amazing talent which showed throughout our wedding day. David captured every moment of our wedding and our albums told the story of the day. He really was fantastic with our children and family & friends complimented him throughout the day. Looking at our album I was amazed he capture so many precious moments that i think he became invisible because we did not even notice him there particularly at the ceremony. We recommend him highly to anyone who is getting married and wish David all the best for 2017. Warmest wishes.
We found David a very professional photographer in every way - on the morning of the wedding, David fitted in the bride’s household seamlessly, taking amazing off the cuff photos and gelling into the background of a very chaotic household. David’s professionalism at the wedding venue and during the ceremony was amazing and the photos from the day show this. David has a great mixture of the necessary family photos that you need for your album and the unstaged, unplanned natural photos that can be enjoyed with family and friends. We can only highly recommend David as your wedding photographer and hope that you enjoy the same experience we did through his work on our wedding day.
We chose David as our wedding photographer as he was recommended to us by a friend. We were looking for someone who would be relaxed with us and our guests, he didn’t disappoint. We were married on 2nd October 2015 in Monknewtown Church, Slane, Co. Meath and had our reception at Bloomfield House Hotel, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. We initially met David in a hotel in Dublin after some email correspondence and a chat on the phone. When we met he spent time getting to know us, asking about how we met, what we did for a living and a whole range of topics. He’s very easy to talk to and looking back it’s clear that this is how David forms a picture in his mind of what the couple are like. We explained what we wanted from him and we were confident that he could deliver. He showed us examples of other weddings he’d shot and the wedding album including the handmade cover from Italy. We were delighted at this stage to book him. He’s really friendly, he has a very relaxed personality and his packages offered real value for money too!! In the lead up to the wedding David was regularly in touch just to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted as well as knowing where to be and when. He arrived to where I (The Groom) was staying first and immediately set about his day. He asks questions about things to see if there’s any history behind them, another way of him finding out what’s important to you personally so that he can highlight that, for you! He took some lovely shots with me, my Best Man and my Groomsman and also some alternative shots of the wedding rings too. He then headed to our house to capture Eibhlin getting ready with the Bridesmaids which included my daughter. He took some amazing shots of them all. There are some really natural photographs there that we’ll love forever. Again, outside the church David captured some superb shots before and after the ceremony. Inside, he was almost invisible. I certainly wasn’t aware of him whilst the ceremony was ongoing. After the ceremony myself, Eibhlin and David went to the historic Hill of Slane where he took some of our favourite snaps. We headed to Mullingar and once there we went to the Lough Ennell which meets the grounds of the hotel. We had our “official” family snaps taken here and well as ones of just myself and Eibhlin. Again, these are some of our favourite photos. One of the family members had a slight issue with the hem on their dress and David managed to edit this out for the album. He captured some great photographs of our guests and each and every one of them commented what a lovely guy he was. When we eventually got our act together and chose all of our photographs for the albums, David was very quick to respond and act on what needed to be done. We only waited a few short weeks to receive them. We again met up in the Dublin hotel and sat chatting to him for around 2 hrs. The quality of the albums are superb. We’re absolutely delighted with them and to have chosen David to capture our big day. If you’re looking for a photographer who is friendly, relaxed and very easy to deal with then look no further. His work is really natural, capturing some really special moments and it offers true value for money. Thank you David!!!
David was just incredible from the time we met him and throughout the course of our preparations right up until the handover of the finished albums he was brilliant. His attention to detail and remarkable ability to get the perfect photograph is nothing short of incredible. He was also so patient and friendly not only to our adult guests who asked for photos, but also to our son and our little nieces and nephews who posed for photos for him. David is a true professional and an absolute gentleman. His work, attitude and personality are second to none and I will definitely be recommending him to all of my friends thinking of getting married. Thank you for everything David, You made our day so special.
We first met David at a family wedding and even though we weren’t engaged at the time we were very impressed with how unobtrusive his photography style was and how relaxed he made everyone feel on the day. When the time came to organise our own big day we contacted David and happily he was free to cover our wedding day. We wanted to stop off at a couple of places that were important to us between our ceremony and hotel for photographs and David was nothing but accommodating which we very much appreciated. When our wedding day arrived David slotted right in with our family and friends and his unobtrusive and friendly photography style shone through! David was there to capture every moment of our day from getting ready to photos in Kilmacurragh to our reception at the Woodenbridge Hotel and that really became evident when we saw the first proofs for our photos. We now have our albums and a beautiful USB of our chosen photos and we couldn’t be happier with them.
David was everything that we wanted in a photographer, relaxed, friendly, professional and at a reasonable cost. We did a lot of research before picking our photographer and we were instantly impressed when we saw his work. We met with David in advance of the wedding where he took us through his work. He understood our relaxed style and understood the photos that we wanted and did not want. On the wedding day it was so nice to have him around; he made us all feel at ease and was great fun. Our guests loved him! He captured the day just as wanted and did not miss a thing. The quality of his photos was second to none and the album that we were presented with exceeded our expectations. I would recommend him to any bride and in fact my friend has since booked him for her wedding. You will not be disappointed if you pick David. If we ever need a photographer in the future we will be calling David.
David photographed our wedding at the Portmarnock hotel in April 2015. We would absolutely recommend him to other couples looking for a photographer for their wedding. From our first meeting to the handover of of wedding album, David was a pleasure to work with. He listened to our ideas, quickly responded to our questions and made us feel relaxed and confident for our photos. Even though it took us over a year to select our photos for the album (how do you choose favourites when they are all so good?!), David was extremely understanding and had the album ready for us soon after we made our decision. David perfectly captured them day’s events and emotions in his photographs. He is a true professional and an absolute gentleman. We are delighted with the photographs and the wedding album. We cannot thank you enough, David!
David was an absolute pleasure to work with from the day we booked him for our wedding photographer until the day we collected the album. He made us feel so relaxed and knew exactly what we wanted on the day. To see the photos afterwards and wonder how he got to take so many on the day was just amazing. His attention to detail is just superb! He was flexible all the time in meeting with us and worked with whatever suited us. David is so professional and the quality of his work is excellent. So happy to have had David available on our big day. Thanks again David.
I met David at two previous weddings when I was part of the bridal parties. He was an obvious choice for us for our wedding day at Clonabreany House as the quality of his work was exactly what we wanted. His work is both natural and it dipicted all the emotions of our day perfectly. My previous experience of him (as a bridesmaid) cemented exactly what I needed as the bride. Barely knowing he was in the room, David was able to capture some exquisite photographs. He was inconspicuous but able to command the attention of the bridal party without being forceful and put everyone at ease! I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone, in fact he has done my sister in laws wedding since and I cannot wait to see the photographs!
