Ash here! This is my family on our wedding day – Dan and Scruffy! (Thankyou to the talented Shane of Aspect Photography)
I met the hubsters in sunny Devon while studying Architecture, and Scruffy made 3 a couple of years later. In 2013 I realised I didn’t want to stand in the rain on building sites anymore, and so decided to pick up a camera and dive into the fun, love and chaos that is wedding photography! As Dan is the best husband a girl could ask for, he taught me the ropes of photography and joins me on my wedding adventures. As well as being my tech go-to guy, the carrier of my extra cameras and bags, he has been known to take a few epic shots himself as my right hand man and second shooter. If you are looking for the cutest ring bearer in Ireland, Scruffy’s services are also available!
Time and time again we’re told that couples are nervous about being photographed. We get it – we really do! Most people have a few hang-ups! Mine (Ash) is that I hate my nose! Dan thinks he has a pointy face! However, we also know that none of that matters if the face in the photo is utterly happy. We do our very best to bring you into your comfort zone and thoroughly enjoy that precious couple session. We’re not very good at singing our own praises, but if you hear what a few of our past couples say, maybe that will give you the confidence that we will put you at ease, and have a downright blast with us!
Hire them. Just do it. If you want a photographer who is like a second bridesmaid and best friend, Ashling is for you. She and Dan made our wedding day. Ashling is also real and cool, not sycophantic like most dull wedding photographers – she tells it as is it is and gets the BEST out of you on your day. Our wedding photos are legendary not only among our friends and family but among the acting industry (as an actor my agent uses my bridal shots regularly) and the wedding industry: we were featured on Sassi Holford and One Fab Day’s websites. We also have more wedding photos than any other couple I know – you certainly get your money’s worth! But also on the day itself – Ashling was like a second bridesmaid to me, making sure I was on time and looking fantastic. Both she and Dan were nicknamed kamikaze photographers by our friends as they hardly noticed them. Your wedding photos are the one thing you take away from the day (along with the husband) – so make Butterfly your investment!
Our wedding was on 28th of October 2016 and I had attended one of my friends weddings that August, a wedding where Ash and Dan did the photography. I instantly fell in love with my friends photos and the style they were shot. I had a another photographer booked for our wedding but after seeing Ash and Dan’s work I didn’t think twice I checked if Ash and Dan were free and they were so I cancelled my photographer, lost my deposit and booked Ash and Dan. Best decision I made for our wedding.
I found Ash and Dan just the best on our day, Ash came to our house that morning and was like one of the family, just got involved and took the most beautiful photos, at no point did I feel uncomfortable or nervous when any of the photos were being taken (most of the time I didn’t even know there was photos being taken). Ash and Dan are true professionals, and made us feel so comfortable during the couple shoot.
I have recommended Ash and Dan to all of my friends who are getting married and most of them have booked them, the only ones that haven’t is because they weren’t available. I honestly think the photos sell themselves #no words required
Ash and Dan are literally the best photographers, from our first meeting in Avoca, I knew I wanted them at my wedding, on the day they blended right in and in the morning it was like having a friend with me, snapping away to capture all of the best moments of the getting ready process.
The photos taken throughout the day are absolutely stunning and they easily captured the relaxed and happy atmosphere we wanted on our day. The photos were sent quickly after the big day and with some beautiful prints that I am already deciding where to hang.
Thank you both soooo much for all of your hard work to give us amazing memories of our special day. Brides to be you need Butterfly at your wedding. 5 stars xxxxxxxxxxx
Ash & Dan are so amazing to work with, right from the very first email, to our wedding day & finally to receiving our photographs. The light that they capture in their photographs amazes me & we’re so happy to have these to look back on our amazing day. Thanks so much guys x
Ash and Dan are an INCREDIBLY talented couple and are an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish!!
We were lucky enough to have a beautiful crisp sunny winter’s day (28 December 2016) for our wedding so were able to get some outdoor photos. True professionals as they are, Ash and Dan had visited the venue and location of our wedding in advance so they knew exactly what what settings and scenes would work and there was no hanging around, which meant we got back to the party in no time! Ash in particular was excellent at giving direction and putting us at ease while capturing the perfect shot.
The individual portrait and couple shots are stunning, but we equally love the hundreds of impromptu photos of the wedding party and our family and friends enjoying the day – Ash and Dan really captured every moment of the day perfectly. Having received a little ‘sneak peak’ video the day after the wedding (which was an a super surprise!), we were so excited to received the rest of the photos, and they certainly didn’t disappoint!!! The only difficulty now is selecting the ones we want to frame!
We highly highly recommend Butterfly Photography to any bride and groom looking for beautiful artistic wedding photos to treasure for years to come!
Ash and Dan were absolutely brilliant to deal with from start to finish! We will treasure the stunning photos they took of our special day. Can’t stop looking at them! As well as taking beautiful couple shots for us we love how they captured the joy of the day with our family and friends. They were so generous with their time and patience, advice and special touches throughout our entire dealings with them. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Really cannot thank you guys enough! From the extra friendly emails and tips from the beginning. Felt like we knew you! To getting to know our venue before the big day and then being so relaxed, fun and subtle on our wedding day! The couple photography was one of my favourite parts of the day so special and relaxed…with the love notes and music made it so real! Then our wedding video collage and now receiving our pics packaged so lovely…..cannot thank you guys enough could not have asked for more! Want to do it all over again
