An Intro to Tanya

I am Tanya, the photographer behind the lens at Eden Photography. I specialise in a boutique style of photography that is a mixture between photojournalism and fine art, creatively and naturally telling the story of your day. As a historian ( I have a PhD in History & Politics), I began my career telling stories of the past. I love how history can take you back to a moment in time that has long since past but can truly come alive again through the power of the story that is told. And that is what attracted me most to photography and more particularly photographing weddings. Each wedding is a precious part of the history of that family and I love how I get to document and carefully curate that part of your history. It is a very special thing to be a part of.

An Intro to Eden Photography

In 2016 I was honoured to be named Weddings Online Photographer of the Year and in 2015 I  was named by Hotpress Magazine as “One to watch for 2015”. The success of Eden Photography has come through hard work and a passion for what I do but I am constantly amazed at all we have achieved. I love weddings and photographing couples in love – I am blessed to do what I do!

The Beauty in Your Wedding

Whether you are planning an intimate wedding abroad, an elegant affair in a private house or a sophisticated city gathering – you want a wedding that reflects who you are as a couple and a celebration that is all about family and friends. You probably are not looking for one of those large and traditional white weddings of old but instead want a wedding that is effortlessly elegant with beautiful details and chic touches. Your choice of wedding venue tells its own story and for you is the place where your dreams come true. It is special to you. Family values are at the heart of your celebration, I love that. I am perfect for you.

Eden Collections and Pricing

I believe in keeping things simple for you. There are a lot of decisions to be made for your wedding and my aim is to make your photography choice an easy one! Photography is a huge investment and I want you to be able to get the most from your photography and have amazing photographic memories from your day!

I understand that every wedding is unique, so if you have something different in mind for your day then please let me know.

I have three Collections that include what most couples need. You can choose from
  • 5 or 7 hours coverage. 5 hours is ideal for smaller weddings, whilst 7 hours gives your more than enough time to cover your preparations all the way through to the meal. You can choose the start and finish time to best suit your day.
  • There is a USB or digital option. The USB is a lovely keepsake of your wedding images but if you prefer to download the images straight to your computer, there is an option for that as well. This may suit best if you live outside of Ireland.
  • For those that want to include an album there is an 8×8 (inches) album included in one of the collections. And you can also upgrade to a larger album at the time of booking for an extra saving. Albums are the ultimate memory keeper of your wedding photographs. I strongly believe that your photographs should adorn the pages of a wedding album and the walls of your home as framed prints.
  • You can also add in additional coverage until the first dance to your collection.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Your Coverage Work?

Typically wedding coverage is 7 hours until the meal or 11 hours until the First Dance. Naturally every wedding is unique and packages can be tailored if you require something a bit different. Some couples for instance will have their speeches before the meal and we can of course capture the cutting of the cake during this time also. Coverage begins in the morning with your preparations (can include both the bride and groom getting ready), the ceremony, your couples portraits, group photographs & candids from the drinks reception.

What is Your Style?

I would describe my style as natural and relaxed elegant documentary photography. My work is influenced by fashion and has an editorial sophisticated and feminine feel.

How Do you Work on the Day of a Wedding?

My approach to your wedding is relaxed and natural, allowing moments to unfold. Using my experience I can help you choose the right locations for the best photographs, guide you for the most flattering portraits of you both together and help to design a timeline for the day. I work discreetly, ensuring that I do not disturb the flow of your day. I am also happy to help you find the best wedding suppliers to help bring your dream day together beautifully.

Do You Travel for Weddings?

Yes, I travel for weddinfs throughout Ireland, as well as destination weddings outside of Ireland

When Can We Expect Our Wedding Photographs?

You will receive your online gallery and USB of wedding images 6-8 weeks after your wedding date. All images are in high resolution and are watermark free. If you would like Thank You cards designed, these typically take about 10 working days and albums can take up to 6 weeks once ordered.

Are You Insured?

Yes, I am fully insured.

How Can we Book You?
