Award winning reportage wedding photography in Northern Ireland, Ireland and the UK
“Fantastic, natural photography for couples who don’t want to pose”
Welcome to my website. I’m Dylan McBurney and I am a Northern Ireland wedding photographer specialising in creative documentary wedding photography. I photograph weddings in a natural, relaxed and unposed way. The couples that I work with want fantastic photography from their wedding but don’t want to spend their day posing.
Over the past 10 years I’ve been perfecting my award winning reportage wedding photography, working to create a stunning visual narrative of my clients weddings. The photographs are a series of connected images that build on each other to create the unique story of your day.

“taken our breath away, so many moments captured in time forever”
‘DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT ITS FINEST’
“the most beautiful and unique collection of photographs we have ever seen”
With all of your family and friends gathered together in one place I always expect to take a few formal photographs but I keep this part of the day short and sweet so that the wedding day can flow. I want you to spend your time with your guests enjoying the day and these are the photographs I love to take.
Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime experience but one you can re-live time and time again through your photographs.
My whole philosophy for shooting a wedding is centred around following my heart and trusting my eye. I shoot by intuition and like to photograph from the point of view of being a guest at your wedding. I want the emotions and the story of the day you’ve planned to leap out of the photographs and transport anyone seeing them back to how it felt that day.

“Dylan was beyond a pleasure to work with – planning a wedding in Ireland from the USA, he still managed to make me feel like we met on a regular basis. He made everyone feel completely comfortable in front of the camera with his ability to blend right in with our family and friends. I wish we lived closer so everyone we know could have him photograph their weddings!” – Emily & Chris
“Dylan has an easy grace that brought me a sense of calm, and while he was always around, he wasn’t always noticeable. But he captured the moments that mattered most to us… He managed to please this American who likes a clear-cut plan, and also pleased my Irish husband who has a “ah, sure, it’ll be grand” mentality for planning…that’s not easy to do. Still thinking about it? Don’t…just book him. You won’t be sorry.” Betsy & Eoin
“We highly recommend Dylan to those couples who want to fully enjoy their day from start to end without the worry or stress of posing for photographs! The photos were so natural and captured the real atmosphere of the day. From the very moment we met him we knew we had made the perfect decision!” – Fiona & Declan
