Documentary Wedding Photographers Northern Ireland, UK and Ireland

Wedding Photographers Northern Ireland

Hello and Welcome to my website!

I’m Dylan McBurney and I am a Northern Ireland wedding photographer specialising in unobtrusive documentary reportage style wedding photography. I try to capture the real emotions and feelings of people through the course of your wedding day. My pictures show the people and events at their very best and as they naturally unfolded.

My approach is a world away from the cliched approach of much of what constitutes ‘wedding photography’. I work intuitively as an observer rather than as a director. Apart from a few family portraits and some images of the bride and groom together my photography is very much based on the real life of the wedding.

I see my role as to preserve the very best of your wedding so that you can look back in twenty years and remember every last detail. You’ll want to show your children and your grandchildren not just what it looked like but what it felt like to have been there.

I love photographing people and being a part of every wedding I’m entrusted to capture. In the last ten years I have photographed over 300 weddings all over Northern Ireland, Ireland and the UK.

My images have been shown and published around the world and I’ve been lucky to travel with my clients to their weddings all over Europe in places as far apart as Barcelona, Prague, France and Cyprus.

I’m an active member (and currently the only wedding photographer in Northern Ireland) of the fabulous international Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA).

“The Wedding Photojournalist Association put the world’s best wedding photography at your fingertips. A new perspective on wedding photography – quietly capturing the real moments as they happen for the bride and groom. It is our goal to use photography to tell the story of your wedding day, not dictate it for you.”

I hope you enjoy looking through my galleries and please use the contact form below if you would like more information.

Thank you!

Hi Dylan - The pictures look amazing, we love them! We kept saying to each other, ""Did you see Dylan taking photos? Do you think he got one of this, one of that?"" But you obviously were - but quietly, in the background, like some kind of photography ninja! You made our day really special and we can't say thank you enough, although we’ll try!

Dylan, I have to say that looking at your photographs is like being in a time-machine magically transporting us back to every moment - to all the things that made it our best day ever, and to all the things that we missed but that you've forever captured. Thank you so much.
