ABOUT ME

Kathy Silke Photography

Hi and thanks for visiting! I’m Kathy, an Irish wedding photographer based in Dublin who offers services throughout Ireland and beyond if called for.

I’ve lived in Ireland and Dublin all my life, though I’ve been told I sound American more than once. I studied Photography in College and left with a BA in Photographic Media, I later went on to get a Diploma in Graphic Design, because you can’t have one without the other. For the last several years I’ve been photographing weddings and essentially working at my dream job! Having this kind of experience means that I have learned to be skilled, efficient, and creative in both photography and design- so you know that I will put the same care, skill, and love into both your photographs and your handcrafted albums.

I love working with natural light and the photo-journalistic style of photography, I will willingly put my hand up and say I hate my photo being taken, and so I understand that sometimes the best approach is the natural one. I won’t be in your face with a camera all day but instead aim to capture events as they unfold in a relaxed and fun way while offering gentle direction when needed. I absolutely love photographing weddings and it really does make my day (or year!) when I hear a glowing review from a Bride when she gets her photos.

I enjoy the small things in life; I live with my boyfriend and our two cats, Brax and Nico (named after my favourite F1 racing driver). I remain probably the only Irish person who doesn’t drink tea or coffee and I love animals, though I have an embarrassing phobia of birds!  I love to travel and explore new places with Himself. At the end of the day nothing makes me happier than going out for a nice dinner, I’m a total foodie, and sitting at home watching movies with a glass of wine or a fancy cocktail, chocolate optional.

Now, enough about me, tell me about your big day!
