DOUGIE FARRELLY

Hello, I am Dougie, delighted you have come this far and keen to read more about me!

I love nothing more than capturing special moments, emotions, laughter and happy tears both on images and film.

I was born and raised in Malahide, Co. Dublin and have spent many years travelling between Dublin and Andalucia focusing my work in these two areas, occasionally travelling to other parts of Europe too.

My style is discreet, natural and relaxed, you won’t know I am there, but I will pop up occasionally to have a bit of Irish banter with you!

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

My love of photography started from a young age. I used to nag my father to take me to the shops just so I could look at newspapers and gaze at the images in them. These images fascinated me as a child, documenting people, beautiful scenes and capturing life. I was inspired and decided I wanted to be able to learn to do the same.

I saved my pocket money and finally bought my first camera at the age of ten. I can still clearly remember my excitement walking out the camera shop as if it were yesterday, this feeling has never left me and I was hooked!

As I got older many hours were spent in my darkroom developing my photographs, thankfully I had a very patient girlfriend, Paula, now my wife and best buddy, who still teases me saying I spent more time in my darkroom than I did with her!

When I graduated from college, I went to work in the Irish Film Industry and was fortunate to work with some amazingly talented people. My enduring passion for capturing events on camera and film continued to grow.

THE WEDDING STORY

Eventually I was asked to shoot a friend’s wedding, this encompassed everything I had dreamed of as a child. I was in heaven capturing those emotions, the beautiful magical moments and I knew then this was my perfect career.

After shooting hundreds of weddings my style of photography and film has evolved, I love nothing more than documenting a timeless romantic story.
My long, suffering wife, Paula, gave up competing with the darkroom days and now works with me as a second shooter and an eye for details, don’t all girls love details!

We are proud to have won numerous awards demonstrating our professionalism in the industry and commitment to our couples choosing us for their special day.

OUR STYLE

My style of photography is natural, fun and relaxed.

I work unobtrusively, using the latest mirrorless cameras, preferring a less formal approach as we shoot the fun and candid moments as well as the formal events.

Always listening to my clients needs and keeping totally up to date with wedding trends, I offer a variety of products and services for you to choose from.

I also work with commercial clients under my separate brand – Silverscreen Productions, my portfolio includes Fingal County Council, Hyundai, Malahide Marina, Sunset Beach Club, Wingman.
