I'm Mike Nolan, a Wedding Photographer based in Ireland.
I specialise in visual storytelling through photographs, capturing all of those important moments as they organically unfold throughout the day.
As a documentary wedding photographer, I like to keep things simple.
Most of the time, you won't even notice that I'm there and that's when I'll be doing my best work.
I set aside small but effective amounts of time for portraits and family photos letting you enjoy your day with your guests while I shoot candidly in the background 90% of the time. My goal is to capture the natural connection between you and your partner with only a slight touch of direction from me. I want your photos to reflect who you actually are together. Classy, natural and artistic - with no cheese.
I travel all over the country and abroad to photograph weddings so, no journey is too big or small. Check out my Real Weddings section where you can find more of my recent work or get in touch and let's have a chat.
Documentary Wedding Photographer
I believe in keeping things simple. I like to let couples enjoy themselves with their family and friends for as much of the day as possible while I work away in the background, capturing your day as it naturally unfolds.
From the first day we sat down with Mike to discuss our wedding we knew he was the right wedding photographer for us. He is so relaxed, friendly and accommodating & had such a huge interest in getting to know us.
On the day itself he was fantastic. All of our wedding party & guests commented on how Mike seemed to be everywhere but was in no way intrusive. His style is exactly what we wanted - relaxed & informal but was also there to capture all of our big moments.

Working with Mike was incredible, we couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer for our wedding day.
I was looking for a relaxed, informal style of photographs and Mike was able to achieve that.
When we got our photos back it was clear that a lot of effort was put into each picture, without it looking too staged and stiff.
He was able to capture so many beautiful moments, without taking us away from the celebrations for too long. I would definitely recommend Mike for any event.
