A Bit About Me

Hi, I’m Viv van der Holst, I have been a professional Photographer since 2005.

I have my music cranked to 11 when I’m editing photos.

I love surfing & rock climbing and have always had a sense of adventure

My style of photography is documentary with an artistic twist.

I remain unobtrusive, rather focusing on capturing the moments as they happen keeping it authentic, spontaneous and natural.

My goal is to keep couples enjoying their day while I capture their beauty without intruding on the fun.

For couples who are a little camera shy, I use techniques that I’ve learned over the years to ensure I capture the best photos possible.

My Process & Timeline

Once I have photographer your wedding I backup the shots and select the best photos to start the editing process.

This involves getting creative and bringing a bit of magic to your photos.

I then create Black & White copies with beautiful rich tones which are included in your package for you to print and share.

An online gallery is created for you to share with friends and family within 2 weeks of your wedding day.

Choosing the photos for your album is also done via this gallery through a simple process.

Once you’re happy with the design of your album it’s sent to print and shipped to you within 3-4 weeks


Seafield Hotel Rock Wedding Wexford | K D | Holst Photography Ireland

From the initial planning stages of our wedding, Viv talked us through his various packages and what we could expect from Holst Photography on our big day.
When the day itself arrived, Viv was on time, conscious of the Bride’s nerves and full of suggestions and ideas of how to capture every special moment.
Viv was great with all of our guests, easily chatting and making friends with people (including children and in-laws!) which made for more natural and relaxed pictures.
