Wanderley was an absolute delight to work with and we are so pleased with the beautiful photos! We live in Chicago and our wedding was in Dublin. Wanderley graciously accommodated our time difference when scheduling Skype calls and he was always very responsive via email. He also recommended our videographer to us. On our wedding day, Wanderley, his assistant, and Lukas the videographer all worked together seamlessly to coordinate the wedding party and capture the day. We posed for a few photos but they also caught amazing candid moments and used awesome lighting techniques to take some very artistic photos as well. 10/10 experience!

Wanderley was our photographer for our wedding on 15th August 2018. We initially found Wanderley through Weddings Online and arranged to meet him. At this meeting he answered every question we had and we went ahead and booked. We had an engagement shoot a few months before our wedding with Wanderley as part of our package. We were nervous about this as we are not the biggest fans of being the centre of attention. However it is something that I am so glad we did and would urge every couple to do it. We brought our daughter along and it made for not only some beautiful photos of us as a couple but for some treasured family photos. On top of this the engagement shoot gave us a chance to get a feel for Wanderley and him us, which made us so relaxed about the photos on our big day.
On the day of our wedding Wanderley and his assistant , Sandra, were nothing short of exceptional. Both were easy to have around however also got all the photos we had wished for and more. They got the perfect balance of posed verses catching natural magic moments. We never once felt awkward which was our worry.
We received a few pictures the day after our wedding which was a nice touch and received our USB with all photos within a few weeks, there was no delay in waiting for these and they included a beautiful slideshow set to our first dance song. Our only issue is trying to narrow down the hundreds of photos for our album but that is not something we can complain about!!!

When we first met Wanderley for a coffee to go through the details of the wedding day, what we wanted, him showing us his ideas we were immediately excited and relieved that we were in good hands. Wanderley is a gentleman and a lovely guy to be around. Casual and professional. He had us in stitches on the wedding day, very easy to work with. Couldn?t be more helpful. No drama, the time we spent getting our photos taken at Chalresfort in Kinsale was great craic. Regardless of the bad weather he was able to get gorgeous photos of us and was able to just deal with the changing weather with new ideas for photos on the spot. This made them so original and unique to us. The photos and the albums are top notch, couldn?t have asked for our special day to be captured any better. The hardest thing we had to do was cut down the number of photographs to fit in the album. All thanks to him and his assistant Julia on the day. Take the stress out of the photography, this guy knows what he?s doing. My brother and my mates have used Wanderley since our wedding.

We would recommend Wanderley for wedding photos with absolute confidence. We were so happy to have found him & were thrilled with our pictures. Wanderley is a fantastic photographer and he has such passion for his job, the results are amazing. Wanderley is a true professional and will offer you great advice but also really listens to what you are looking for. He is so easy to deal with and on the day he kept us all calm! Since our wedding 2 years ago, we have been asked for Wanderleys details from friends and family on a number occasions and they have also booked him for their day. I would recommend Wanderley to anybody for their big day. You won't be disappointed!

Wanderley did our engagement session pictures we were so happy that we have decided to give feedback for it also. He was great and very creative. The best part was that he gave this session without any cost. That is the best way to get to know your photographer before the wedding day. We are very happy with our engagements pictures, can't wait for the big day

Wanderley was very friendly and anetusiatistic. We didn't want many posed photos and he really accommodated us. We barely noticed he was there all day. At the same time he was able to get control when necessary to get traditional pictures, which was really great because it means you can relax and the photos are natural and really capture the day but we still had the classical to shoots show to our families and hand in the wall.

Well-rounded photographer, always up to whaterever crazy ideas the couple may have. Great knowledge about photography. Sensitive eyes. We asked for casual and natural pictures and he made us feel so comfortable and relaxed all the time which brought to light our love in the pictures just the way we wanted! We made our engagement session with this wonderful sharpened eyes' photographer and we are looking foward for our wedding day!! Just can't wait to see all the happiness recorded throught his lenses, creativity and sensibility. We are very positive he is going to catch the best moments and feelings as much as he did on our engagement session!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Wanderly for the fantastic job he did in capturing the atmosphere, personalities and excitement on our big day. He gave a very personalised touch to the photography, we met him before our wedding at our venue and this was a great opportunity to get to know her and get used to being in front of the camera. Wanderley gets involved in the atmosphere of the day and blends in with the wedding party. The quality of photos is self evident from his website but the photobook hi puts together is even better. Many people at our wedding commented on his excellent rapport with people when organising photos, it was all fun and no hassle. We highly recommend Wanderly for your wedding day photography.

There are lots of things to worry about leading up to and on your wedding day. Hire Wanderley and photos will not be one of these things.
We had a very specific vision of the type of images we wanted and Wanderley got this instantly, understood what we wanted and was able to deliver more than we ever expected.
From the engagement shoot right the big day, Wanderley was in control, knew the shots, how to get them and also encouraged our input the whole way along to ensure he knew exactly what we wanted. On the big day in particular Wanderley gave us a great feeling that he had everything under control so we could focus on the day itself. There were some shots with very difficult lighting and crowds, but these are where he excels, and with a few external flashes & a test shot he got exactly what we wanted without any fuss or waiting around. His creative eye is unbelievable, seeing absolutely amazing, unique shots where nobody else would.
Wanderley delivers unparalleled quality and value at prices that appear unrealistically low. If you want unique, highly creative If you Highly creative, unique professional photos that capture your big day perfectly, then you need to give Wanderley a shout.

Thanks Wanderley, your one in a million!

Wanderley was exactly the photographer you need for your special day. He has the right feeling for the best situations to take pictures with the best motives. The pictures are very special and are very different from the standard wedding ones. We really enjoyed the day and are very happy every time when we are looking at the pictures. We are very happy with it. All is very good, picture?s motive, quality, colours, diversification of pictures. It was very fun to make the picture with you, we really enjoyed it. Your creativity is very motivating for keep up taking the pictures. Wanderley thank you so much for working with us.

We were very fortunate to know Wanderley before we got engaged and once we had a date set we were very keen to get him booked as our wedding photographer as we both really liked his work and it was important for us to have a photographer we could trust would capture our special day. On the day both Wanderley and his assistant were extremely professional and seamlessly blended into the background to capture all the magic moments in both the run up to the main event but also all the fun during and after. His skill and enthusiasm helped to capture some fantastic photos that will allow us to relive a wonderful day for many years to come. We would highly recommend Wanderley as he is an extremely professional and diligent photographer and has a great eye for capturing the natural relaxed moments of joy and happiness at a wedding.

We recommend Wanderley for your photographs from Engagements to Wedding photos. We found him to be a fantastic professional with great customer service who is able to meet your demands. One of the things we loved about Wanderley was his patience to listen to us, and on top of that, his suggestions that made our pictures spectacular. He is professional, BUT WARM AND FRIENDLY. Wanderley's pictures speak for themselves, he's always evolving, He adapts great with the environment or location to deliver great pictures. We loved all our pictures, He outdid our expectations. Invited guest, friends and family on our wedding day, spoke highly of Him. Thanks Wanderley for such lovely pictures, and even more, a great experience on our wedding day, you made things fun and easy. Chris and Marina

Thank you Wanderley for shooting our special day!! We couldn?t have chosen a more perfect photographer for our day!! From the moment we first spoke to each other you had us laughing and feeling relaxed! On the day you arrived in perfect time, and got snapping pics straight away! I was so relieved that you made us all feel so relaxed and natural immediately and this really showed in our pictures! We didn?t want overly posed pictures and you understood exactly what we wanted! I even trusted you to take my dress outside to hang it from a tree on the golf course! What an amazing photo! You captured our day exactly as we wanted it and we are thrilled with our photos! You have an amazing talent!! We received our photos beautifully presented in a case with a USB key in the shape of a key and this was such a nice surprise! We have been showing our photos off and everyone agrees that they are so natural and yet super romantic :-) this is just a little note to say a HUGE thank you to you Wanderley (like the wagon!) !

The photos look fantastic?.. We?re approaching our first anniversary and are lucky to have so many gorgeous photos to remember our wedding day. Wanderlay was always professional. We a few meetings prior to the ?big day? where we discussed our requirements, including style of photography. Wanderlay arrived early in the morning, capturing moments throughout the day and well into the evening. He worked inconspicuously, as we had discussed ? we did not want an ?in your face? photographer. We have so many beautiful, natural un-posed photos with a perfect balance of group and individual shots of our whole wedding group. When we returned from our honeymoon , Wanderley has all of our photos ready, with no delays. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Wanderley. His relaxed style, while still highly professional suited us perfectly. We would highly recommend Wanderley for a wedding or any other event. Thank you Wanderley :)
