Three words we would use to describe Team DB! Experience, Integrity & Fun. Three important words to look for when selecting a wedding photographer and videographer! Experience - Darren comes with an abundance of it!  His father was both a photographer & videographer back in day so Darren was born into it! When he finished school in 2009, he went & qualified & started working professionally pretty much straight away. It wasn't enough to become competent at one obviously, he went and mastered both!   Himself & Juliana joined forces in 2015 & haven't looked back! Together, they won what they hope will be the first of many awards, the Weddings On Line 2018 Wedding Videographer of The Year! Proud as Punch & delighted that all their hard work was really starting to reap rewards! 

Integrity - We pride ourselves with our customer service - right from first enquiry to final product :) It's certainly a process getting from one to the other, and we work together every step of the way...There is no I in Team DB :) We are literally always striving to better ourselves & provide the very best service that we can. You won't be a number with us :)

Fun - After the cake is eaten, the dancing is done & the dress dry cleaned, all that's truly left of your wedding day are your memories, your wedding rings, your photos & your video. We can't help with the rings, & unfortunately memories fade, but we can certainly come in handy with the photos & video! Both are a return ticket to one of the happiest days in your life, a journey that as time goes by, becomes simply priceless. We like to add a bit of craic to proceedings - your video from us will be fuuuunnnnnn & light hearted. Nothing too serious or soppy - we will capture the fun & frolics & can almost guarantee to cause a few tears to be shed along the way as well :) We cover from prep to first dance & everything in between :) 

We are based in Kilcock, Co. Meath, but cover all of Ireland, and are also available for weddings abroad!

Darren & Juliana are by far the best in the business. They made our day so special and we had such a laugh with Darren whilst getting pictures taken half the time he’s snapping away like a Ninja flying around. We had 33 at our wedding and every single person who attended were commenting after the wedding on how amazing they both were and so attentive to the guest and were just in the background. Look no further than these guys you will not be disappointed thats if your lucky to get them for your date as we were.

You will not find a better wedding photographer than Darren! We could not recommend him highly enough! He was so relaxed and easy going about everything from the get go. I was 7 months pregnant with twins and not too comfortable in front of the camera but he made me feel completely at ease and didn’t ask me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. All of our friends and family commented about how professional and fun he was on the day, and that was before they even saw the photos or video. We were completely blown away by the finished product! He captured our day so unbelievably perfectly and we could not be happier. We didn’t have any bells and whistles with our fairly small COVID wedding, but by looking at the photos you’d never know the difference. The only problem is that he’s made it very hard for us to choose our favourites to put in an album, they’re all amazing!!

If you want a photographer with some character, to not only take photos of you but to actually help you enjoy your day, well Darren is the chap. He is a true professional, never imposing and always polite and cheerful. We really enjoyed having him with us on the day and cannot wait to see the end results! Talk about feeling like a Hollywood Star, we had such a laugh. Well done Darren and thanks again

We had Darren and Juliana do photography and videography for our wedding in December. From the moment we contacted them they made us feel at ease straight away. They made the whole experience fun and helped our day to run so smoothly despite getting married in the middle of a pandemic!! Darren caught every detail in the photos and captured great memories that we will treasure forever. We would highly recommend Darren and Juliana and we are so glad we had them with us on our wedding day. Thanks again Darren and Juliana for making our day so special.

Darren was absolutely amazing on the day of our wedding and he was so flexible and reassuring when we had to cancel and reschedule numerous times. On the day itself he was relaxed and fun and he managed to make everyone feel at ease (even the people who hate having their photo taken!) Throughout the day he took a mixture of candid and posed photos but even the posed ones were so easy and fun to take. We just laughed all day. I’d highly recommend him - he is professional, reliable and good craic! The photos are absolutely amazing and we have some beautiful memories to keep.

Could not reccomend Darren enough. Our wedding happened during Storm Jorge and we thought outside photos would be out of the question. Most photographers would have been happy with photos in the church or venue in the midst of a storm but Darren wasnt afraid to get stuck in. He persisted and we got a break in the weather and got some really unique photos when snow covered mountain as a backdrop. This is why you need to TRUST YOU PHOTOGRAPHER , it means so much and you will get some spectacular photos. Darren is relaxed and easy going, we bearly knew he was there which made the day so much more relaxed. Our photos turned out amazing we are so happy with them. 10/10

We had the absolute pleasure of having Darren as our Videographer for our wedding in Feb. To say Darren is amazingly talented would be an understatement.Darren is also such a friendly guy who managed to settle my nerves numerous times throughout the day.We barely even noticed the filming as it was in no way intrusive which is exactly what we were looking for.We received our wedding video teaser and few days after the wedding & we were absolutely blown away by how fantastic it was.I cannot wait until we see the full film- if it’s half as good as the teaser I will be over the moon .I can honestly say choosing Darren as our Wedding Videographer was one of the best wedding decisions I made.

If I could give 10 stars I would! Darren was amazing from start to finish. We were both nervous about the photographs on the day but Darren made us both feel at ease. Darren was professional and told us exactly when and where we were needed and we listened to his advice and trusted him. Our guests are still raving about him until today! He was so friendly to all our guests and he had the craic with us all too. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He made our day SO easy! Not only did he give us great advice for the Pictures on the day, he also gave us great advice around everything wedding related and put my mind at ease when I was panicking about all things wedding related.

Darren did an incredible job as our wedding photographer. The photos he captured are so natural and beautiful, we are absolutely thrilled with them. He fit in perfectly on the day, we often didn't know he was there. He was well prepared and organised when it came to wrangling different family members etc for groupshots. We will treasure the photos forever.

Darren provides an amazing service from the first moment of contact to the last click of the camera. The booking process is so straightforward and everytime I spoke with Darren via email or on the phone he was so friendly. I felt like I knew him before the wedding day. On the day itself Darren was so relaxed and a great laugh that he helped everybody to relax. We wanted laid back photography and Darren was so discreet. Our guests even commented on how nice the photographer was. Couldn't recommend Darren Byrne photography enough. So excited to see the final photos when they are ready :)

I can not recommend Darren Byrne enough! Not only is Darren such a lovely person to be around, he is phenomenal at his job! For the majority of the day Darren is so discreet you won’t even know that he is there! Myself and my now husband hate cameras in our faces and definitely do not like being the center of attention, Darren made sure we felt comfortable with him around and we didn’t even notice the Camera. Darren will go above and beyond! And I mean this quite literally !! During our photo session with our photographer Jimmy and Darren I had a brooch on my Bouquet which fell off the bridge while having photos taken and Darren went into the river after it!! and safely returned it! Honestly can not recommend Darren highly enough, and while I did not get to meet Julianna, most of my contact during the organization was with Julianna and she is so helpful in answering questions and quick in her responses. We also got a lovely welcome pack and gift from Darren and Juliana when we first booked (which included chocolate and when you’re in Australia there’s nothing nicer than Irish chocolate!).

We would just like to say a huge Thank you to Darren & Julianna for their amazing work on our wedding day on the 27/07/2019 @ The Portmarnock Hotel. When we received both our photo's and video from our wedding day we were blown away with your work. We love all of the photos and could not have asked for more. The video is amazing to look back on as it captures every little detail. All of the photos are so natural and they capture the day perfectly. In the lead up to the wedding both Darren & Julianna were brilliant at checking in with us and putting together a list of photos we wanted to get on the day to ensure we would not forget any. Darren & Julianna are so relaxed and helped to ensure our day ran as smoothly as possible and ensured we were all on track and ready to walk down the aisle on time. Once again, thank you both so much for our beautiful photos and video, we have memories to last us a life time. Love Emma & Graham.

We Cannot recommend Darren enough. Absolutely great to deal with , we live abroad and Darren and Julianna both met with us the year before the wedding when we were back in Ireland and also 3 weeks beforehand to finalise everything. He always kept in contact and up to date with everything. This man is the reason we were all ready a half an hour before leaving the house! He also went to the grooms house that morning. He had us all on time , helping us with everything and informing the bridesmaids what they could do. That morning was so calm and all went smoothly , I had visions of being stressed out but it was far from it! Darren and Julianna done an amazing job capturing our day and we can't thank you both enough !x Lisa & Jamie x

We are still waiting to receive our video however just listening to the guests chatting, having fun with him that day and knowing his work is pure class I can safely say that I am very excited to see the final results.

Darren was the potographer at my nephews wedding recently. He was absolutely fantastic from the very beginning, putting everyone at ease and injecting some fun and humour into the morning. He was absolutely amazing with the 4 year old page boy, he knew exactly how to get the best photos out of this little boy. I have since seen the final photos and they are absolutely stunning. So much imagination but most importantly every shot that was required is there. Nobody was left out and the results will show forever. Excellent photographer, excellent photos 10 out of 10 without hesitation. An absolute joy to have around from start to finish but most importantly extremely wonderful at what he does.

We were so excited when we found Darren through recommendations on Weddings online; his photos are natural and not over-edited. Darren and Juliana took special time to meet with us and answer our questions. He helped to organise our wedding day timeline to make the most of our picture time that day. He also helped to organise a list of wedding party/family photos, which were done amazingly fast and well the day-of. We felt so comfortable having him take our pictures, which is something we really wanted to be sure of before we chose a photographer. He tells you exactly what to do for photos and makes you feel relaxed! You will not regret having Darren as your photographer. We couldn't be happier, and our family are incredibly excited to see the photos after the teaser ones.

Darren Byrne Photography & Film came HIGHLY recommended through the Help I'm Getting Married Facebook Page/ and Darren & Juliana did not disappoint, they are two in a million. They were great craic and captured our day with attention to detail while being ninjas at the same time. My family were so impressed with them. Darren even earned mammy brownie points on the day by pinning on mum's corsage. By the end of the evening I felt like they were more like friends than suppliers as they are so lovely. We had a great day with a great bunch of suppliers. I watched our wedding video trailer on repeat last night. Cant wait to sit down with my hubby and watch our video.

They were so professional yet like part of the family. We hardly noticed they were there and we have just received our photographs recently and I cried at every single photo.

Darren and Juliana could not have done a better job than they did on my photographs and wedding video. To anyone who has young children like myself will know how impossible it is to get them to stand still and get their pictures done. Darren suggested we just go about like normal and he would snap away well these pictures are amazing. They catch us as a real family laughing at each other even me going down the slide in my wedding dress!! These guys are so discreet too watching back on the video I was saying I didn’t know he was there, which to me is a big thing as I wanted to be myself act normal, catch the unexpected moments.

Leading up to our day it was forecast for snow and everyone kept sayino what will you do if it does i rest assured I will be getting married regardless a bit of snow. But when our day came we where giving the shock of a bit more snow then we thought ????Sebastian was in my aunts as the night before the wedding tradition and I rang him and said what will we do ? I told him to think as his family couldn't make it due to 5 feet of snow nobody could drive and even our priest was on the phone asking if the wedding will be going ahead but Sebastian said we will go ahead with the wedding as he knew how important it was for me as we where getting married on my late nans we sorted one thing to go ahead with the wedding but how will we get there ?considering our cars and limos couldn't drive.thankfully my hair dressers from cutting edge curls enniscorthy Aoife and Nicole they posted it on Facebook about getting me a lift to the church if worst came to the worst I was gonna walk with my dress over my shoulder or in a buggy nothing was stopping me ???? after been rest assured my photographer Darren never let me down after a couple phone calls calming my nerves he was with us every step of the way and put us to piece he would be waiting at the church regardless so we got sorted for a lift ended up been a new Holland tractor and a jcb not many brides would have the story to tell of having 5 inches of snow and a fancy ride in style lol after all of a stressful morning turned into a brilliant day all round and Darren a big special thank to you and Juliana for making my day even better by getting amazing shots and video footage I'm delighted and love them and thank you for putting up with the cold in your hands after the snow your truly amazing at what you do and didn't fail on the worst day of the year a big thanks from me and Sebastian.

Like many others we left booking a videographer kinda last minute and really debated whether or not it was worth getting one or not... the day after the wedding it was the one thing, before even seeing any of the video, that I was so glad we'd decided to book in the end. All the clicheés are true it really does go so fast and you really do miss so much of it and if course the pictures only do capture so much! We both absolutely loved our video, even my husband who had been so against the idea of being videoed at the start. Darren was great, very flexible with putting a package together for us, communication from start to finish was excellent and he was fantastic on the day, so down to earth and had some great advice on the morning while at the same time his video recording went totally un noticed by our guests and even our bridal party! The videos turned out brilliantly amd are by far our favourite keepsake of our day. Definitely book yours, you won't regret it!!

Having Darren on our wedding day was great. He was such a funny bubbley person to have around to help everyone forget all the nerves. But his professionalism was amazing. He even helped entertain my daughter who started to have a meltdown during our photography so as we could have our photos taken in peace. He went above and beyond as our videographer and caught every single moment that was so special to everyone. Having him there was the best decission we made about our day and i can never thank Darren and Julianna enough for everything.

We got married in May 2017, Darren and Juliana did our video. It was the one thing I was hesitant about in the overall wedding planning but we are so so thrilled we got the wedding video. Darren and Juliana are so amazing at what they do. From start to finish they were so easy to deal with & very professional. I loved the little welcome package they sent us including a cute wedding keep sake and chocolates, was so nice! Our wedding video is just fabulous , we could not be happier, such a gorgeous thing to have to look back on years to come. I'm so happy to have found Darren, what a gent and a dream to work with. I really can not recommend Darren and Juliana enough to future brides & grooms, you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much for everything, Shona & Brian Hurley x

After debating whether or not to hire a videographer for our wedding we finally agreed and booked Darren Byrne Photography. After the initial booking I received a welcome package in the post from them with loads of little presents and information on wedding suppliers. I instantly knew we made the right decision. Darren and Juliana are such an amazing team. They are so professional yet brilliant craic, Darren had our bridal party laughing the whole morning! When we watched our wedding USB I cried the whole way through. They truly captured the heart of the day. The quality of work was outstanding. When the wedding dress is packed away, when the honeymoon is over and when life settles back to normal we will still have this wonderful video to remind us of the best day of our lives. To Darren and Juliana, we are truly thankful!

Well at first we were undecided whether to have a videographer or not. But omg are we delighted we booked and that we booked with Darren Byrne. He was so amazing on the day and made me feel so comfortable. We also were able to have a bit of a laugh. He is such a nice guy and he is so professional. We received our video so quickly and it was absolutely amazing. I have watched it over and over. He captured everything so beautifully. He also left in the unedited version which was amazing. Defo recommend him to anyone xxxx thank you Darren

darren and juliana are two really nice people to deal with. we had them for videography and it was the best choice ever. the video was amazing they captured our day beautifully and they are so professional you would hardly even notice they were there at all.i was on two minds weather to have a video at all but im so glad i did as the day goes by that fast you dont really process it all and its great to sit down a couple of weeks after the wedding and relive the day and catch the bits you missed. they are very responsive to any questions you have and make you feel at ease straight away their customer service is top class. to all future brides book them now you wont be sorry.

Darren and his team were fantastic to deal with from the moment I contacted them. We weren't going to have a videographer due to budget constraints but decided last minute to book one and we are so so glad we did. The layout, style and attention to detail of the video is amazing and anyone that has seen it has said the same. Darren is friendly and outgoing and was a pleasure to deal with on the day. He quietly worked away getting the footage he needed. It's not just on his work that i would recommend him. He also provided excellent customer service with many extra little touches once we booked. Highly recommend!!

Guys I so seriously cannot recommend Darren Byrne Photography enough. We just got our video back and it's amazing. The day went in such a blur I was after forgetting loads. Looking back on it all now I'm in bits. Beautifully shot video which really captured us as a couple. Got some lovely moments of our (at the time) 10 month old. For anyone on a budget or anyone sitting on the fence about getting a video done please do it! We had the tightest budget but decided to go for it last minute. Delighted we did as husband was really sick at the time and we had a lot of anxiety and stress going on in the background. Thank you Darren and Juliana. Two genuinely talented, nice, down to earth people. We really cannot thank you enough ??

Couldn't recommend Darren Byrne highly enough , we got him for our wedding video in September ! his fun, laid back approach was exactly what we wanted! He got loads of moments we missed out on and the video was a pleasure to watch He wasn't in our faces and yet he seemed to not miss a trick , definitely don't go any further if your looking for a video! My friends have since used them for photography/ video/ engagement sessions and were also thrilled! 5 stars all round :-)

From Day 1 Darren made us feel at ease. I've never been one to enjoy posing in front of the camera but Darren was so relaxed and helpful that any embarrassment I would have normally felt was gone! He made us laugh and enjoy ourselves, so now our beautiful photos look natural rather than posed. Not only did Darren get the usual group and family photos but he also captured some beautiful and magical moments or people laughing or gazing at something in the distance. The turn around time to see the photos was incredibly quick and we had 100's to choose from. He also did our video for the day and watching that back leaves me giggling and crying tears of joy time after time. I would recommend Darren to everyone and anyone, not only was he incredibly good value but his photos have left us with memories that last a lifetime and I'm so grateful.

Darren is an amazing wedding photographer he did our wedding and his level of professionalism attention to detail and allowing us as a couple to participate in how we wanted our photos to look was unreal. He was so accommodating and open to new ideas which was really great as we feel we have a very unique wedding album and photography experience. I have to say he made me feel great as a bride and made our wedding day very special for us thanks Darren
