A unique portrait of you and your venue

A Shot In The Dark is a technique that's unique to me, and I use it to create an image that will be unique to you. No other photographer in Ireland shoots night portraits the way I create A Shot In The Dark, and no two photos I create in this way are the same.

The Process

One of the key principles of A Shot In The Dark is that it will never be a photo that I have shot before, even if I’m creating one at a venue I’ve shot at many times before.

I absolutely love the challenge of finding a composition, thinking of a concept and building up the shot. For anything up to an hour, while you and your guests eat, I will work to light the environment of your venue using from one to twelve off-camera flashes to create an image that showcases not just the two of you, but also the grounds or architecture of your venue.

Once there’s a lull (usually between dinner and dancing), I will bring you to wherever in the venue I’ve set up the shot for no more than 5 minutes so that I can place you in the scene and take the final shot.

Any venue, any season

What couples say...

“We booked Ronan’s extended coverage to include A Shot In The Dark – I cannot tell you how highly we rate this. We’d seen so many amazing shots in his portfolio and in magazines for which he’s won awards, and just had to have him do a photo of us like this! He did NOT disappoint. The morning after our wedding day, we woke in the Bridal Suite to a message from Ronan with a sneak peak of some of our wedding photos, including the Shot in the Dark photo – it was amazing, we are still so in love with it!”
