Locations for outdoor photoshoots

For couples looking to explore some areas in Wicklow for their photo session, here are a few I can highly recommend:

Glendalough, Wicklow

Nestled in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, Glendalough is a place of captivating beauty and ancient history. The picturesque ruins, serene lakes, and lush greenery provide a truly romantic setting for your wedding photographs. An expert eye for composition and lighting will bring out the ethereal quality of this location. This will ensure that your images reflect Glendalough’s enchantment.

This little monastic village dates back to the 6th century and is steeped in history. A stroll through the area will present so many backdrops you wouldn’t have enough time in the day to explore them all. The lakes offer an epic natural backdrop with greenery pretty much all year round. I regularly visit the area to explore the nature around there, simply stunning.

Powerscourt Waterfall, Wicklow

Set in a small basin, the waterfall towers over Beech, Oak and Pine trees scattered between rolling hills and meandering streams. I’ve used this location for wedding photography for couples getting married in the Wicklow area. A must-visit location!!

It’s handy also as it’s a short drive from Powerscourt Estate.

Other Wicklow Locations:

The Wicklow region is known for its diverse landscapes, ranging from rugged mountains to serene beaches. From the picturesque village of Avoca to the majestic landscapes of the Wicklow Mountains National Park, there are countless hidden gems that can serve as stunning backdrops for your wedding photographs. I will work closely with you to choose the perfect locations that resonate with your love story. This will ensure that each photograph is a timeless work of art.

For couples looking for bright colours within a small space in a tranquil setting, you have a few options:

National Botanic Gardens at Kilmacurragh is great for this. They are extremely accommodating to Newlyweds going there to get their wedding photos taken. A gentle stroll through offers so much variety and loads of colourful flowers, shaded areas, bridges and streams.

For autumn weddings I can highly recommend the gardens at Powerscourt Estate which are transformed into a wonderland of colour when the leaves started turning colour.

Powerscourt Estate

With its magnificent gardens, cascading waterfalls, and grand architecture, offers an extraordinary backdrop for wedding portraits. The meticulously landscaped gardens, blooming flower beds, and towering trees create a truly romantic ambience. Our skilled photographer will expertly capture your love amidst the timeless elegance and natural beauty of Powerscourt, resulting in images that exude both grandeur and intimacy.
