This man is an absolute photography genius! Not only have I never seen work like it in my life his work is so different and quirky and he loves to try random and stylish poses that will ensure an incredibly unique wedding album! From the minute jay arrived at my house on the morning of the wedding he was so relaxed and chilled out which made it so much easier for me to relax and rnjoy. Not only did Jay enjoy the fun he also added so much to the fun! You didn't know that he was snapping away in the background which meant he was really unintrusive and ensured loads of fun and naturAl snaps of the children and guests at the wedding! I have viewed many photographer portfolios and I can safely say that none compares to the classiness, detail, fun and spectacular photos of this man! An absolute pleasure to work with and I would strongly recommend all brides to get this man booked for your big day....he is truly fantastic!!!

Look no further for your wedding photographer. Absolutely Top class. I was lucky enough to already know about the amazing work of Jay Doherty photography even before I got engaged. As soon as we had a date sorted, we booked Jay. Having seen his work, I knew we were in for a treat. Well, our expectations were surpassed. Thee most natural beautiful unique pictures have been captured and we are just so happy and grateful. Aside from the truly stunning pictures, I must mention that it was an absolute pleasure to deal with Jay from start to finish. He created the most lovely, fun, relaxed & 'full of craic' atmosphere on our day while working like a total professional throughout. Cannot recommend enough. Incredible photographer, his work speaks for itself.

I was a model for Jay at a photography workshop in Donegal. He made myself and my boyfriend(the other model) so comfortable! And we had only met him a few days before. He had loads of exciting ideas and was full of energy! I loved the photographs he took of us so much that I have been recommending him to my friends who are getting married.

From my wife i got the impression that Jay was the most amazing accompaniment to the wedding morning. He was professional, accomodating and just down right awesome. Beyond the morning he was simply fantastic for the bridal party and the wedding guests in general. Going beyond the wedding day itself Jay was simply wonderful, you felt the care and attention to detail he has for each and every client. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jay to anyone.
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Thanks so much Jarlaith, I appreciate the good comments. I loved your wedding day, from the very start I was surrounded by good friendly warmth and finerty ! good luck jay

Jay was everything we could have wished for and more as our wedding photographer. We wanted a relaxed style but in the safe knowledge we could expect fantastic results. Which is what we got. Jay was fun, prossional and forward thinking with our photos. He captured so much love and laughter on our day that our album he provided allows us to relive such a fantastic day. Everything he did was to an exceptional standard. I would highly recommend any bridal couple to look no further than jay. He will get to know both and ensure his fantastic work reflects your relationship and family and friends involved. The end result is simply amazing and an album to treasure forever.
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Thanks Rachael, we had an amazing time on your wedding day. I was in awe of the hard work and the creativity involved cheers jay

Jay's background and subtle presence captured the perfect natural shots throughout the day. Nothing was too much trouble and his lack of unnecessary fuss made the bridal party & guests feel at ease, while also having a laugh with everyone! He is a super talented photographer who manages to capture real life, intimate moments from your special day to look back on for a lifetime. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Jay photographed our wedding in April. On the day him and the second photographer Gerry went out of their way to get the best shots. They were so chilled out and we really enjoyed the Craic with them. The photographs were out of this world. I couldn't believe how amazing they were. They were so different to anything I had seen before. I couldn't have been happier with the service provided. We had the photographs and album so quickly as well and the album is stunning. Such good quality. I would highly recommend Jay to anyone. He is fantastic at what he does.
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Thank you Tracey, you took us on a great safari of Donegal, we saw places we'd never dreamt of.Thanks for your good energy and great craic. Regards Jay

I can not speak highly enough of Jay Doherty Photography. Once I got engaged there was never a doubt in my mind who my wedding photographer would be. Having seen Jay's work from other weddings that he had worked on, I instantly fell in love with his creativity, his uniqueness and the obvious passion and fun that was evident from his photos. Our wedding day had all of this and more. Getting our photos done on our wedding day is something with I will never forget, we were so comfortable with Jay, he at all times was so professional while making the process fun and enjoyable. Our photos and wedding album is just amazing, each page we turn tells the story of our day, something which we will treasure forever. I can honestly say that the complete service that Jay provides shows how incredibly passionate he is about his work. I can't recommend him enough.
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Thank you Grainne. You and Paul were so cool and willing to embrace the elements on your werdding day. You made miracles happen where some might have only saw rain ! Jay

I was a guest at our friend's wedding last New Year's Eve and my partner was one of the groomsmen. He said that Jay was fun and exciting to work with, not doing the usual wedding poses that everyone has. I have since seen the wedding album and was blown away by the amazing photos that were captured on the wedding day. Photos captured of wedding guests were non intrusive and natural and photos of the bride and groom were outstanding. I would highly recommend Jay Doherty as a wedding day photographer.

The photographs that Jay took at Deborah and Derrin's Christmas wedding were truly out of this world. Jay has a very unique talent of becoming a guest at the wedding rather than a supplier, mingling and having the craic with the crowd and capturing the most intimate moments on camera. You could find Jay up a tree, on top of his van or any number of random dangerous locations, just to get that perfect shot. He's one in a million :)
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Thank you Leanne, this means a lot coming from the head of such a wonderful team. Good luck and no doubt I'll see you soon Jay

We had such a great day with Jay on our wedding day, I couldn't recommend him enough. He made everyone at ease and made the experience so enjoyable (including my dad who hates photos of himself!) and we had so many laughs taking the photos. The children involved in the wedding party had him tortured but he looked like he was enjoying them as much as they enjoyed him! We were at my house, the church, in a barley field, gardens and at the hotel with outstanding results from every location! My bridesmaid has also booked him for her wedding next year after seeing him at action at mine. He is a very talented man!
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Thank you Ruth, and thanks for the recommendations. I had an amazing time with you guys, runing through Barly fields and posing with combine harvesters are just some of my many great memories. Good luck Jay

We found photos of Jay's work online and while he was relatively unknown at this time we knew his style of photography was what we were looking for. We met with jay and from the first hello we were instantly put at ease. We chatted for a long time about our likes & lives but at no stage felt under pressure to make a booking, which settled our mind 100% to book jay there & then! We met with him prior to the day and again he was a pleasure to deal with, very relaxed but professional, exactly what you want in a photographer. On the morning of the wedding I was late home from the hairdressers but jay was relaxed and text to put my mind at ease not to be worrying or rushing. Having had 2 daughters married before my dad agreed jay was a pleasure to welcome and have a chat with before we came home. While we were a few minutes behind schedule he remained unfazed and kept us relaxed throughout. My 8 year old nephew wanted to take some pics for his mum (my bridesmaid) during the mass and rather than seeing this as a nuisance jay kept him close to his side throughout allowing him to imitate every shot he was taking. After the mass we had such great craic, jay kept all the bridal party entertained as well as getting amazing photos including persuading me to get a piggy back across the street & stopping traffic & candyfloss! Not only did we have a great day with jay but to top it off he text us the next morning to thank us for allowing him to be part of our day, a small token but meant so much to both of us. His after service was first class and we had our album very quickly. Also, jay had taken some old style Polaroid photos on the day. We had both forgotten about these and while jay knew the hotel I worked I had since moved job. Instead of throwing these out he kept onto them and 8 months after he remembered one day where my husband worked and popped into the office to pass them on, definitely going above & beyond!! Having worked in the wedding industry for 7 years and worked with several other photographers I cannot highly recommend jay enough! Don't let his chilled out and relaxed approach fool you, jay is the ultimate professional with amazing photography to match!
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Wow, thanks so much Aine and JP. I'm beaming with happiness. I was so honoured to be part of your wedding experience and have so many great memories in so many different wee places around Derry All the best in the future Jay

What can I say about Jay Doherty.... first and foremost he is an absolute gentleman - a gentleman of the Donegal variety so he's a bit "out there" but a top class person to be around - Infectious enthusiasm!! From start to finish he made both Bobby & I super comfortable. I was very keen not to have really "posed" photographs & boy did Jay deliver. Three years on we are still getting regular compliments..... every now & then I get asked "Was that your wedding....?" and I am secretly smug at how amazing our pictures are! I have on numerous occasions recommended Jay to friends & I will continue to do so without a single thread of doubt that he will blow any other wedding photographer out of the water. An absolute professional, a buck eejit, a thoroughly decent soul :-)
Response from Jay Doherty Photography
Thank Charlene, I guess there were many buck edjits present at your wedding, me being only one of them. We had a blast together, the whole day, the craic in the monring with the girls, the bar, the mountain top, the whole day, the female rugdy team getting wild - an all time memorable day for me Good luck Jay

We had Jay as our wedding photographer a few years back. From the first day we met him prior to the wedding we felt very comfortable and at ease with him. Jay has a very unique calming yet energetic personality, which on the wedding day itself are great balance for your photogralpher to have. Our wedding was a very wet June day, and like any bride I was worried about getting outdoor photos, but we were in safe hands. Jay came armed with umbrellas and managed to find sheltered spots beneath trees and in out houses and like only be can do, find beauty in the most unlikely places. Needless to say our photographs were amazing. Jay has went on to do my sisters wedding and many friends since, and it's always a pleasure to see and catch up with him. I would highly recommend Jay to any bride planning her wedding.

Thank you Ciara, you will always be a legend in my book. We batled harsh weather and came out winners. You and Gary were ecstatic the day long, what an epxerience ! jay

I attended my friends wedding and Jay Doherty Photography was the photographer on the day. Jay was fantastic and made the bridal party and guests feel at ease on what was a wet and blustery day. The images and memories he created that day were amazing. He has a real flair and creative approach to his work which makes him a joy to be around. He is enthusiastic and will go the extra mile to capture that perfect memory for the bride and groom. Since that day I have followed Jay Dohertys work and have been amazed by this talented photographer. I would without doubt recommend Jay Doherty photography to any bride and groom.

Hi, I'm Jay, a wedding and portrait photographer from Donegal in Ireland. I have a few cool awards under my belt, PPANI wedding photographer of the year [phone removed] runner up, a pair of FEARLESS Awards, a SWPP wedding photography gold award in [phone removed]. But that nonsense aside I have always been a photographer, my father before me was too. I began my photographic business 6 years ago. I love to shoot weddings, I love to shoot children and family moments. My style is unique, my approach is informal, fun and often verging on high-energy. My wedding clients and families mean a great deal to me, and I do realise how lucky I am in becoming such an important part of your lives, for a while anyway. I like to meet with couples, drink tea, eat fancy biscuits and get to know their stories, their loves and fears before we make any photographs. With each new assignment I will try to push our creativity levels. I am constantly seeking new photographic locations; I thrive on Donegal hilltops, golden barely fields, leave-carpeted forests, cosy Irish pubs. I am a proud father and husband. I could not ask for more in my own wee family. We are the best team and best of friends. Our recent wedding was no doubt one of the finest experiences of my life, second only to the birth of my daughter. We live in the peaceful surroundings of Inishowen in Donegal and as an outdoor family we spend our weekends around the coasts or on the road seeking adventure. I do live a simple life, but possessions-wise I cherish my Nikon D[phone removed] camera, my Bedford 'Bambi' campervan and anything made by Polaroid. I can't resist Arthur Guinness' Porter, the occasional Black Bush and a toasty turf fire at home.
