Dearbhla & Kieran
  We were married in Ballymagarvey House, December 2016 and truly had the best and most memorable day of our lives. The latter has been confirmed by the undeniable talent of David Maury: pure perfection. We chose not to have a videographer so it was so important to us that the photographs reflected the happiness that we felt on our wedding day. David worked solo and from the moment he began the day with the bridal party, until the last photo was taken as everyone partied and danced like maniacs, he was stealth, precise, friendly, fun and utterly invisible at times: magic! We were so comfortable in his company and what we love most is the story his pictures tell: we look at our photos and are transported back to every moment. No poses were forced, and we are definitely not camera adoring folk but David adapted to us so that everything was just natural, simple and so enjoyable. The best part was hearing from guests how sociable he was for the day: good craic at an Irish wedding is a must and this French man has bundles of it! We would recommend David to everyone, and have! We can't thank him enough for his integral role in our wedding... so merci beaucoup et fin!

  After our initial meeting with David, my husband and I left with a feeling of absolute confidence that the task of photographing our wedding was in good hands. David was very friendly, relaxed and professional. I'd already looked at some of his photos online and liked his style and looking through a sample album at our meeting confirmed that we would be happy with the end result. Several reviews online referred to his relaxed, easygoing style and how well he got on with people, and this was something that was very important to us, as we were having a relatively small wedding and we both wanted it to be as relaxed, unstressful a day as possible. On the day of the wedding David arrived promptly in the midst of a flurry of hair and makeup preparations and was very unobtrusive, while still remaining friendly and pleasant. We took family photos in a lovely nature trail in Kilcullen and a couple of people commented to me that he had a very nice manner as he assembled the various groups (no easy task with large immediate families on both the bride and groom's sides!), and later at our reception (in Fallons of Kilcullen), our friends also commented on his engaging manner. When it came to selecting our photos, it was a difficult task, as David had caught so many lovely moments. What really made the album so special are the many moments David caught of people including us while unaware of the camera; beautiful, natural moments that really tell the story of our wedding day. Those to whom we have shown the album have been equally impressed by the atmosphere he captured and the quality of the work. Both my husband and I couldn't recommend David highly enough

  We had the absolute pleasure of David to be our photographer on our wedding day at the beautiful venue leixlip Manor and Gardens. David is a gentleman and his gentle nature and presence was amazing. David albums are a work of art he truly has an amazing talent which showed throughout our wedding day. David captured every moment of our wedding and our albums told the story of the day. He really was fantastic with our children and family & friends complimented him throughout the day. Looking at our album I was amazed he capture so many precious moments that i think he became invisible because we did not even notice him there particularly at the ceremony. We recommend him highly to anyone who is getting married and wish David all the best for 2017. Warmest wishes.

  We chose David as our wedding photographer as he was recommended to us by a friend. We were looking for someone who would be relaxed with us and our guests, he didn't disappoint. We were married on 2nd October 2015 in Monknewtown Church, Slane, Co. Meath and had our reception at Bloomfield House Hotel, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. We initially met David in a hotel in Dublin after some email correspondence and a chat on the phone. When we met he spent time getting to know us, asking about how we met, what we did for a living and a whole range of topics. He's very easy to talk to and looking back it's clear that this is how David forms a picture in his mind of what the couple are like. We explained what we wanted from him and we were confident that he could deliver. He showed us examples of other weddings he'd shot and the wedding album including the handmade cover from Italy. We were delighted at this stage to book him. He's really friendly, he has a very relaxed personality and his packages offered real value for money too!! In the lead up to the wedding David was regularly in touch just to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted as well as knowing where to be and when. He arrived to where I (The Groom) was staying first and immediately set about his day. He asks questions about things to see if there's any history behind them, another way of him finding out what's important to you personally so that he can highlight that, for you! He took some lovely shots with me, my Best Man and my Groomsman and also some alternative shots of the wedding rings too. He then headed to our house to capture Eibhlin getting ready with the Bridesmaids which included my daughter. He took some amazing shots of them all. There are some really natural photographs there that we'll love forever. Again, outside the church David captured some superb shots before and after the ceremony. Inside, he was almost invisible. I certainly wasn't aware of him whilst the ceremony was ongoing. After the ceremony myself, Eibhlin and David went to the historic Hill of Slane where he took some of our favourite snaps. We headed to Mullingar and once there we went to the Lough Ennell which meets the grounds of the hotel. We had our "official" family snaps taken here and well as ones of just myself and Eibhlin. Again, these are some of our favourite photos. One of the family members had a slight issue with the hem on their dress and David managed to edit this out for the album. He captured some great photographs of our guests and each and every one of them commented what a lovely guy he was. When we eventually got our act together and chose all of our photographs for the albums, David was very quick to respond and act on what needed to be done. We only waited a few short weeks to receive them. We again met up in the Dublin hotel and sat chatting to him for around 2 hrs. The quality of the albums are superb. We're absolutely delighted with them and to have chosen David to capture our big day. If you're looking for a photographer who is friendly, relaxed and very easy to deal with then look no further. His work is really natural, capturing some really special moments and it offers true value for money. Thank you David!!!

  David was just incredible from the time we met him and throughout the course of our preparations right up until the handover of the finished albums he was brilliant. His attention to detail and remarkable ability to get the perfect photograph is nothing short of incredible. He was also so patient and friendly not only to our adult guests who asked for photos, but also to our son and our little nieces and nephews who posed for photos for him. David is a true professional and an absolute gentleman. His work, attitude and personality are second to none and I will definitely be recommending him to all of my friends thinking of getting married. Thank you for everything David, You made our day so special.

  We first met David at a family wedding and even though we weren't engaged at the time we were very impressed with how unobtrusive his photography style was and how relaxed he made everyone feel on the day. When the time came to organise our own big day we contacted David and happily he was free to cover our wedding day. We wanted to stop off at a couple of places that were important to us between our ceremony and hotel for photographs and David was nothing but accommodating which we very much appreciated. When our wedding day arrived David slotted right in with our family and friends and his unobtrusive and friendly photography style shone through! David was there to capture every moment of our day from getting ready to photos in Kilmacurragh to our reception at the Woodenbridge Hotel and that really became evident when we saw the first proofs for our photos. We now have our albums and a beautiful USB of our chosen photos and we couldn't be happier with them.

  David was everything that we wanted in a photographer, relaxed, friendly, professional and at a reasonable cost. We did a lot of research before picking our photographer and we were instantly impressed when we saw his work. We met with David in advance of the wedding where he took us through his work. He understood our relaxed style and understood the photos that we wanted and did not want. On the wedding day it was so nice to have him around; he made us all feel at ease and was great fun. Our guests loved him! He captured the day just as wanted and did not miss a thing. The quality of his photos was second to none and the album that we were presented with exceeded our expectations. I would recommend him to any bride and in fact my friend has since booked him for her wedding. You will not be disappointed if you pick David. If we ever need a photographer in the future we will be calling David.

  David photographed our wedding at the Portmarnock hotel in April 2015. We would absolutely recommend him to other couples looking for a photographer for their wedding. From our first meeting to the handover of of wedding album, David was a pleasure to work with. He listened to our ideas, quickly responded to our questions and made us feel relaxed and confident for our photos. Even though it took us over a year to select our photos for the album (how do you choose favourites when they are all so good?!), David was extremely understanding and had the album ready for us soon after we made our decision. David perfectly captured them day's events and emotions in his photographs. He is a true professional and an absolute gentleman. We are delighted with the photographs and the wedding album. We cannot thank you enough, David!

  David was an absolute pleasure to work with from the day we booked him for our wedding photographer until the day we collected the album. He made us feel so relaxed and knew exactly what we wanted on the day. To see the photos afterwards and wonder how he got to take so many on the day was just amazing. His attention to detail is just superb! He was flexible all the time in meeting with us and worked with whatever suited us. David is so professional and the quality of his work is excellent. So happy to have had David available on our big day. Thanks again David.

  I met David at two previous weddings when I was part of the bridal parties. He was an obvious choice for us for our wedding day at Clonabreany House as the quality of his work was exactly what we wanted. His work is both natural and it dipicted all the emotions of our day perfectly. My previous experience of him (as a bridesmaid) cemented exactly what I needed as the bride. Barely knowing he was in the room, David was able to capture some exquisite photographs. He was inconspicuous but able to command the attention of the bridal party without being forceful and put everyone at ease! I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone, in fact he has done my sister in laws wedding since and I cannot wait to see the photographs! .

  We are so pleased with our photographs and albums from David. We got married last summer Castletown House, reception is Celbridge Manor. Everyone at the wedding remarked on how professional and 'ninja like' he was. He managed to get some beautiful shots of our friends & family looking relaxed and having fun. Everyone was so impressed and we had a lovely time over Christmas looking through the album & reliving the day. The parent albums are such a great idea. They went down very well with the folks! I would highly recommend David. We had a wide range of photos to choose from and I felt he captured lovely moments throughout the day. My friend had recommended David to us and now our other friend has asked him to do her wedding in March. He's our official photographer!! Thanks so much David.

We were utterly thrilled with his photographs & feel he is really well priced. We can't recommend him enough!!!

Lee & Jaime
  Jaime and I had planned a small wedding. Not a typical majestic country house affair with swathes of guests as far as the eye could see. We wanted to get married on a quiet little beach called Hug Point, a sheltered alcove on the Oregon coast. We had spent a lovely afternoon there when we first met four years before and we had joked that it would be a wonderful place to get married. Three and a half years later I proposed to Jaime on that same beach. We could think of no better backdrop to our special day. We worked out our priorities and really couldn't think of anything more important than capturing our day the way we remembered it. And we really wanted someone who could capture the day the way all our guests remembered it too. We had invited twenty of the people we loved the most. Some were flying halfway round the world to come and it was as much their day as ours. When you have such a small gathering, being able to capture the interaction between the guests was so vital. We knew David could do it, we'd seen his work and how he managed to press the shutter at that exact moment where a great shot becomes a stunning shot. The colours and the angles he finds we so important to us, we had a background of the sea and the cliffs, the reflections he captures so brilliantly. It was only on the beach that I realised how small our wedding actually was and I did wonder whether a guy scooting round taking pictures might feel intrusive. I had nothing to concern myself with. I didn't notice David was there and when the pictures came back I had no memory of him standing behind us or in front of us. I still wonder how he managed to sneak invisibly into places that must have been right next to me. The pictures he produced were beyond anything we had hoped for. He captured the coastline and the colours as magically as we thought he might. But he also captured the emotion of the day in ways I've yet to see in any photos. Jaime and I had come on an almost impossible journey to get to that moment, standing on a little Oregon beach between the rocks exchanging our vows and rings. We had given up the expensive cake and flowers, the expensive venue and vintage car. We knew that all that would remain from our day would be our memories. But we made the best decision we could have made by asking David to fly in for it. And now his photos hang all around our home. The most wonderful reminder of our most wonderful day.

  David was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. To start with we loved his style of photography and were really impressed with the quality of the albums he produces. We were also thrilled that David would travel to Mayo for our wedding and was very competitive in his pricing. This meant choosing David was a no-brainer! On the day of our Wedding David was fantastic, his approach was completely unobtrusive and to be honest I didn't notice him unless he needed us for a photo! He was super quick at taking our bridal party photos which allowed us to spend time with our guests at our drinks reception which was wonderful and a surprise to many of our guests that they got this time with us. In the end the quality of our pictures was superb! He captured the true personalities of close friends and family which has given us our dream album! We would recommend David in a heartbeat and wish him all the very best in the future!

  In our planning, we knew that the wedding party was relatively small which would allow a photographer to capture very intimate aspects of the day for everyone involved (max 40). For that reason we placed a premium on the quality of photos themselves and the personality of the photographer. I first conducted an extensive search online and then narrowed down our options in order to meet some photographers. But, when it came down to it, there was only one photographer to meet and this was David because of the sheer beauty in his portfolio. We viewed his work online and went through his extensive portfolio paying particular attention to his close-ups, landscapes as well as those serendipitous opportunities that arise on family occasions like ours. We knew that his work met all of our requirements. When we met him (and he was so willing to meet us halfway between Dublin and Belfast), it was the icing on the cake because he was so personable and interested in us as a couple. His main aim was to get a sense of who we were, what we had planned for our wedding day, the kinds of images we wanted as well as the characters (young and old) at the wedding. This was very important to him (and to us) and it paid off 1000-fold on the day. David was exceptional on the day of our wedding. Given that our party size was just under 40, his presence could have overtaken guests or made them feel like they were under the microscope. It was entirely the opposite because he became one of the party, so much so that my nephew even got a photograph of David in action. There are very few of him behind the camera! He blended in and became part of our party. Our photos were absolutely beautiful - in terms of composition, imagery, photography and finish. They captured details on the day that we would never have seen or appreciated, they captured the many characters (young and old) immaculately and, most importantly, they treasure the emotion and connection and love that we had as a couple. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David. In fact, two of our wedding party got married a year later and also had David involved.

  We are absolutely delighted with how our wedding photos turned out. David was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish – so friendly and professional and very quick to respond to every query. I’m not a big fan of having my photo taken, but felt completely at ease with David. As well as great group shots, there are also some lovely unposed, natural shots, which you are not even aware are being taken! Even though very unobtrusive and not in the least bit bossy, we still got all the photos we could have wanted. David has a great eye and really made the most of the venue’s grounds (Leixlip Manor and Gardens) for the photos. He has great attention to detail and did a fantastic job of editing the photos. The album itself is gorgeous – really modern and great quality. We’ve been showing it off since we got it! We would have no hesitation in recommending David for your wedding.

  After meeting with David we stopped looking any further he was just what we wanted. He was so warm and friendly and as he says himself his style is unobtrusive which was exactly what we were after. David couldn't do enough for us on the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. He captured so many moments that the hardest part of working with David was having to pick the final images for our album because we loved them all so much. When we did get our album we couldn't have been happier From the lovely sleeve the album came in to the ribbon to the stunning photos inside.  I've already recommended David to a friend and would have no hesitation in doing so again

  Hi David, we're now in possession of our wonderful wedding album and have given our parents their albums, we're so thrilled with them, as they deliver everything we wanted and more, telling the story of our day, the relaxed feel and so many genuine smiles captured! We've had a lot of compliments on the photos, not necessarily the subjects! :-) To anyone who is considering David as a photographer, we cannot speak highly enough of him, a delightfully relaxed person, exceptionally easy to deal with and delivered our request for a story of the day without sections of the day being all about pictures. David has the ability to ghost about taking great pictures and then presence to organise the statutory family photos that are needed. (As our groomsmen were no use!) We have happily recommended David to our friends, as we say his work speaks for itself and once you meet him you get a confidence that he can deliver the photographs you dream of. I know that our friend Shemaine has asked you to photograph her wedding in December and we're both delighted as we'll get to catch up with you again. Many thanks for capturing and adding to our wonderful day

  David Maury is not just an excellent photographer; he’s a joy to have at your wedding. He was a very special part of our day because of his exceptionally warmhearted, thoughtful, and professional presence. Our guests loved David and still remember him with great affection because he brought a little bit of magic to every interaction. During the ceremony, he managed to somehow be invisible while capturing all of the most intimate moments and details with immense creativity, sensitivity and clarity. He is a deep listener and becomes so attuned to the spirit of your ceremony and celebration that you feel completely confident in his understanding and capacity to capture the experience. David has a genius for atmosphere, for the rare and unique moments, and for the small details. He is quietly, calmly and generously unrelenting on your behalf, and when you receive your photos from him, you will feel wonder and gratitude because he will have captured your day as it truly was, with all the energy, love and happiness right there in every image. We cannot recommend David Maury highly enough.
