“I wanted to thank you for the most amazing wedding photographs I could ever have imagined. We love every single one of them. You captured our wedding in Clonakilty perfectly, and it is so fantastic to see our friends and family enjoying themselves in all the photos”
“You yourself were an absolute dream to have as our photographer on the day. We enjoyed having you around so much, you added to the craic and the fun but also in the best possible way we hardly noticed you were there as well! My worst nightmare on our wedding day was being pulled and posed all day long and there was none of that but we still have beautiful photos”
“Thank you again Philip for all that you did and your beautiful photos“
“Hope to bump into you at a wedding sometime in the future to say hello”
Lorna & Ed
“Where to start? On behalf of myself and my wife I would just like to say thank you to Philip Bourke photography for the work he did at our Tralee wedding. This man is a master of his craft!!!! Philip will let you know from the off set what he is about and how he operates. He’s not your everyday photographer, he’s better. He does claim that he is good. And trust me good is an understatement!!!!! He blends in so much you wouldn’t even know he was there and that was exactly what we wanted. I can not recommend this man enough for your wedding or indeed any work you want done. As I said a true master of his craft”
“Thank you Philip”
Eric & Leeann
“Philip, the pictures are absolutely fantastic. Myself and Johnnie are thrilled with them. Each of the pictures has a story behind it and we had such a laugh slowly looking through them and taking it all in.
A highlight for us was getting back to the house first, before anyone else. You captured that perfectly.
So glad we were there with all our guests and no waiting around!
So thrilled we had you as our photographer…”
Katie & Johnnie
“Love, love, love my pics. You really captured the essence of the day. Xxx”
Lynn & Brendan
“We had Philip Bourke Photography as our Photographer for our Tralee wedding at Ballyseede Castle. and he was a pleasure to deal with and a complete professional. We both loved his documentary style approach to the day, and the photos we now have are better than we could have ever imagined. I can happily recommend him for your big day, you won’t regret it”
Una & Thomas
“Philip, You filled in all the bits we missed during out Wedding at Ballinacurra in Kinsale and helped us re-live it, great fun! Thank you!”
Miriam & Neil

“Thank you, thank you, thank you”
Patricia & Kieran
“Philip captured the most amazing natural pictures of our wedding at The Kingsley Hotel, I hate being told to pose and stand and smile but Philip captured all of the best moments without any pressure or fuss, I will treasure those photos forever and I can’t thank Philip enough“
Sarah & Kieran
“On June 10th 2022, my wife and I had the distinct pleasure of having Philip Bourke photograph our wedding. From our first contact, through a pandemic related postponement, throughout our big day and in all communication afterwards. He was a complete professional and a genuine pleasure to deal with. His relaxed manner meant our whole wedding party was at ease. His good humour and wise words calmed me during my one wobbly moment on the morning of the wedding.
On top of making a positive impression on everyone he met, his incredible work at documenting our day shows, in every frame, the skilled artist that he is. The story of our wedding at Butler’s in Waterville was told beautifully through his photos and we will treasure them always. On the strength of his work, my sister has also booked him for her upcoming wedding and I am delighted that her day is in such good hands. Philip documents weddings in an unobtrusive and honest way and I could not recommend him highly enough“
Muireann & Anne
“Philip captured our wedding day in May. at Barnabrow House. His approach is relaxed and candid. He managed to capture beautiful photos of the day of our friends and family that we will cherish for years to come. Cannot recommend him enough!”
Eimear & Tristan
“When my now wife and I began planning our wedding there was only one thing I absolutely insisted on and that was hiring Philip as our photographer. He had done my sister’s wedding a number of years earlier and I distinctly remembered them being present for the entire day, interacting with their guests. I have been to countless weddings where the bridal party are absent for hours due to the photos after the church. If you want photos to be part of your day and not the entire day then Philip is definitely the photographer you want. His candid style produces incredible photos of the day and catches everyone as their true natural selves.
On our day the stop for photos took about 15 mins and the results are absolutely stunning. We made our reception at The Strand Hotel just after our guests. Every time we look back at the photos we see something different. I would say to check out his work and see for yourself. If you are like myself and just find it very difficult to stand and pose for countless pictures, then hire Philip. I had told my friends and family to ignore the photographer in advance of the day as initially people tended to turn and pose but once they got used to his style, he just blended into the bustle of people in attendance“
Laura & Greg
We found Philip absolutely excellent on the day of our wedding , he was a pleasure to have around, so professional. We wanted the moments of the day captured as naturally as possible and he did exactly that. We love our wedding pictures and I would highly recommend him to friends & family for their special days x
Edel & Ray
We booked Philip for our wedding as we wanted to document essence and magic of our day as naturally as possible. We heard about Philip from a friend who highly recommended we check him out and we instantly fell in love with his work and style. He is a gentleman and true professional. I love his ability to capture human connection and emotion.
We were rarely aware of his presence on our day, he was invisible, capturing sideline whispers and stolen kisses. On a whim we took off to a secluded beach after our ceremony, just us and Philip. It was unplanned and exciting we felt so at ease in his company and have the most incredible photos and memories as a result! I believe Philip’s work speaks for itself but in case you need a lil nudge then here it is – trust him, he’s the one with the gift!
Louisa & Kieran
“Phil thank you so much, the photos are amazing, you really captured the day down in Barnabrow, Bloody legend! x”

“We’ve just spent the past hour looking at our photos, so so happy with them! Thank you so much. It’ll be easy to create a photo album because we’ll just print every single one! You really captured so many beautiful moments, we’ll cherish these and can’t wait to print them out and frame them as well”
“Thanks again, these were absolutely worth the wait”
Sacha & Conor
“Philip is a great photographer who gave us some really amazing shots of our big day. Everyone comments on how beautiful and unique our wedding photos are. Philip was also great to communicate with before, during and after the wedding and on the day at Garryvoe he was fun too!“
Charlotte & Tom
“We had Philip for our Wedding in 2022 and if you are looking for relaxed, candid Wedding photos, Philip is your man for the job. We wanted a no fuss day and Philip captured that vibe perfectly. Looking back at the pictures, there are a number of shots I have no idea how he got them because he was so unobtrusive, I never realised he was taking the photo. We got to relax and enjoy our day, while getting stunning pictures of people having a great time“
Cara & Brian
“Booked Philip for our wedding at Dunloe Castle last August. Honestly cannot say enough about Philip I highly highly recommend him! His photos are incredible he is a relaxed photographer and completely goes with the flow. All I wanted were candid relaxed photos with no posing and I got them.
I will cherish his photos of our wedding forever. There is no cringe only stunning natural photos of our guests and our families. No fuss no props no hours long photoshoots just a lovely memory of enjoying our wedding day with someone discreetly taking pictures in the background. He is top class“
Ruth & James
“We had Philip for our wedding photographer back in 2013. He was professional, prompt in his communication, and incredibly accommodating to our plans. Our photos are perfection. So much so that we are having him do our photos for us again in a few weeks when we return to Ireland for our ten year wedding anniversary! I recommend Philip without hesitation!“
Jessica & Luke
“Philip took photos for our wedding and I can not recommend him enough! His candid style of photos are just absolutely stunning and he really captured the essence of the day. Looking back at our wedding photos vividly brought back wonderful memories of the day. I really really recommend you give Philip a shout if you’re getting married, his relaxed nature and great banter (as well as his amazing photos!!) make the day just amazing!!“
Katie & Andy
“Could no recommend Philip enough as a wedding photographer. I booked him after my sister’s wedding as loved his style of photography and knew I wanted the same for my own wedding. Philip arrived promptly on the morning of our day and his relaxed and friendly manner put us all ease. We’re just after receiving our album and we love it. Philip managed to capture the day right through morning to evening perfectly and has evoked such wonderful memories. Thanks again Philip!“
Tracy & Dave
“Absolutely thrilled with Philip’s work, truly a top class photographer.
We really wanted to actually capture the day, not just get a load of boring group shots. Philip explained that he’s more of a documentary style photographer, and the results were exactly what we wanted!“
Jess & Tim
“Philip, just want to say the pictures of our wedding day are amazing! We were sad looking at them and very happy with them! You captured everything and everyone perfectly. We can’t wait to show our families and friends! We are so happy that we got you as our photographer and it was a pleasure dealing with ya!”
I recommend anyone looking for a photographer that will capture ever natural moment and joy of your wedding day to have a look at Philip’s portfolio…..he nails it!”
Breda & Paul
“Just want to say a huge thanks to Philip. We received our photos during the week and we cant believe how good they are. They tell the story of our day so well and Philip managed to capture so many moments that we weren’t even aware of. His style allowed us to enjoy our day without having to pose for photos which meant we got to spend the day with our guests. Highly recommended!!”
Siobhan & John
“Philip, we just wanted just to say a huge thank you for the way you captured our day, our story of the day told just beautifully with your pictures…every little detail and cheeky smile captured perfectly, it was just fantastic to watch our day unfold again….Thank you so much for such beautiful images!”
Gill & Aidan
“We have just looked at all our pictures from Vienna Woods and they are incredible & even better than we thought. One complaint – too many great ones!!!
“Thanks again for capturing our day and would recommend you to anyone!”
Victoria & Gavin
“Philip photographed our wedding in Gougane Barra, they are my most favourite photos, not only because it was our wedding, but their beautiful candid nature, really captured the feeling of the day.
Philip himself, was so lovely and professional, we didn’t feel his presence, he was so unintrusive it made our day more relaxed and enjoyable. He also had our photos to us in great time. We would highly recommend him”
