Documentary Wedding Photographer


Hi, I'm Mike Nolan, an Award-Winning Documentary Wedding Photographer from Ireland.

My goal is to capture the natural connection between you and your partner thorough real and authentic moments with only a slight touch of direction from me. Classy, natural and elegant - with no cheese.

My speciality lies in allowing you to make the most of your day with minimal interference. All you need to do is have fun & I'll take care of the rest.

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.

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 specialise in capturing all of those important moments as they organically unfold throughout your day.

Now offering hybrid photo & video packages.

Michael was our wedding photographer May 2022 and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. He was punctual, enthusiastic, friendly, kind, and had a genuine and relaxed vibe about him. He captured great shots, while blending into the background. So many guests commented on how nice and unobtrusive he was. Very approachable, very warm, he made the day very special for both of us. We're delighted with our photos, and would highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for a wedding photographer for their special day. Thanks so much Mike, we're so grateful.

Hi, I’m Mike Nolan

I'm a documentary wedding photographer based in Ireland. Ever since I was a child, I've been obsessed with images. I bought my first proper camera when I was 18, traveling with friends and there's been one glued to my hand ever since. I love creating images and absolutely love working with people. I feel it's a real privilege to capture beautiful images for amazing couples on a day as important as their wedding. When I'm not taking pictures at weddings, I'm probably still taking pictures somewhere else. It's my jam and I love it.

Kind Words

From the very start of our day Michael made us feel comfortable and confident. Anything we asked for was never a problem with Michael and we never felt pressured or rushed once throughout the day. He told us on initial consultation that we wouldn't even notice him during the day taking the photos and he was right, he made us feel both at ease throughout the day and we didn't feel like we were posing for photos. Our whole day was captured so naturally and perfectly.

Michael is such a relaxed artistic clever photographer who goes above and beyond to get that perfect unique shot, and WOW that showed in our wedding photos! They are just amazing, each and every one! His skills and professionalism were matched only by his fun personality to be around on our special day. Many of the guests also commented on how fantastic he was, both on the day and when they saw the photos.

Would HIGHLY recommend Michael to any couple, you won't regret it!
