About Irish Wedding Photographer Kathy Silke
I’m inspired by the wild nature of Ireland.
I love capturing natural emotions in a creative and honest way.
I have my dream job.
Hi! I’m Kathy.
I believe in the magic of photography. It can capture the most intimate of moments. It can open up our hearts again and again to the love being shared right then and there. I’m inspired by nature and everything that is wild, beautiful and natural. When the romance of Ireland comes together with your love for each other, and I capture that in a real and natural way - it’s magic!
Before I became an Irish wedding photographer, I studied photography in college and have a Bachelor of Arts in Photographic Media. I later earned a Diploma in Graphic Design, which really helps in perfecting final photos (and designing your wedding albums).
For a while, I enjoyed doing a lot of fashion photography, headshots and portfolios for models, that type of thing. A few years ago, though, I stood in as a second photographer for a wedding with a lovely Galway photographer and I was hooked.
There’s nothing like a wedding.
There’s just something about photographing a wedding that I love - the excitement, the emotions from everyone and the way that no two weddings are the same. When I first started out it was very much on a hope and dream.
Over the years I’ve gotten wiser and have fine-tuned my service for people who love and value photography and expect a personal, professional and helpful experience.
I work with incredible clients.
I am lucky to work with creative, adventurous couples who trust me to capture their special moments in my creative and natural way. It’s a privilege to be trusted to photograph the biggest day of someone’s life. I really enjoy being part of that, and connecting with people.
The weddings I photograph are usually a bit outside of the traditional norms. My couples want their days to reflect their personal style and personalities. They love being outdoors and don’t mind going outside for photos, rain or shine.
I make it a point to help my couples relax and enjoy themselves. I want you to have fun. I won’t be in your face with a camera all day. Instead, I aim to capture events as they unfold in a relaxed and fun way while offering gentle direction when needed.
I like the simple things in life.
When I’m not taking or editing photos, I love going for drives through the Dublin mountains, or catching up with friends over lunch or a night out drinking wine. I also love watching scary movies with my fiance, spending time with our cats Brax and Nico, and indulging my Instagram obsession.
I’d love to meet and hear about you. What are your plans for your wedding? What is most important to you to capture in photos? How did you meet and fall in love?
Do get in touch and we can chat about the possibility of working together for your big day.
