Claire Dunne
Award Winning Photographer Working in Kilkenny, Ireland



My real passion is photographing people. In fact, since an early age I have been looking at the world through a lens. Just ask my son, who has been photographed to within an inch of his life!



I have been working professionally for 17 years specialising in weddings, portraits and events. I’ve also worked on numerous commercial projects for magazines and websites.

Since starting out as a Photographer, I have achieved one the highest qualifications in Ireland, one of the very few Female Associates in the Irish Professional Photographers Association.




From start to finish we found her to be very professional and extremely friendly. The standard exceeded itself so much so that we didn’t need a video as the pictures captured the day perfectly. We felt completely at ease and had plenty of laughs on the day. We were very happy with the service we received in the days leading up to the wedding, the wedding day itself and the service after the wedding.
Claire did a series of portrait photographs when our daughter was born and she exceeded all of our expectations. She put us at ease straight away and the results were amazing! I could not recommend Claire more

From my very first consultation with Claire, I found her to be attentive and understanding of the public image I wanted to portray for my business. Bringing all her past experience into play, she came up with a number of concepts that were all excellent and it was difficult to pick just one as they all could have worked.

The photo shoot ran very smoothly and Claire herself was very professional and generous with her time making sure to get the best shot possible. I could not have been happier with the end result.
