Rachel and Karina were our wedding photographers in August 2018. Our photographs are absolutely spectacular and no matter how times we have looked at them since, we always comment on how lucky we were to have ‘Weddings by Kara.,’ take them. There are some absolutely beautiful photographs capturing us with the mountains and trees where we got married which could easily be in a magazine. In fact, we both have wedding photographers in the family and even they have commented on how stunning our wedding pictures are. We’ve had a tough time picking out our favourite pictures to put up because there are so many!Rachel and Karina have also been brilliantly organised from our very first email to them. They were always prompt with their replies and Rachel took the time out to Skype us whilst already being very busy on a shoot in Portugal at the same time. These interactions gave us a lot of confidence in them and though wedding planning was often stressful, planning our pictures was not a problem at all. In fact, when we had trouble contacting our initial videographers Rachel gave me some contacts to try and we ended up going with one of those who also did a brilliant job.We also want to mention how lovely these two were on the day itself. They were calm, happy and genuinely interested in the two of us and our friends and families. At some points we felt that it was like having friends take our pictures. They also stayed beyond their scheduled time in order to capture all the different aspects of the day which was so kind. They were very keen to make the best of the light on the day and clearly had all the skillset to maximise the opportunities.‘Weddings by Kara’ is an absolute dream. Not only are the pictures going to make you absolutely giddy with happiness, the process of getting the pictures taken will be calm and a lot of fun. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone and hope you’d feel the same.
There are not enough nice words to say about Rachel and Karina and how fantastic this pair are as wedding photographers. From the very first contact, they were prompt in responding, patient, understanding and accommodating. Nothing was a problem and they were just a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. On the wedding day they were the perfect mix of discrete and low key, but engaging and fun to be around and added to our enjoyment of the day, particularly during our couples shots. We had a quiet walk together and a chance to catch up while Karina and Rachel snapped away, occasionally giving us some direction to get the most out of the shots, but we never felt overly posed or made do anything awkward. I’m so delighted with our photos. They are absolutely stunning. They captured the day perfectly and will be treasured for years to come.
Picking Rachel and Karina was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. Photography was very important to me so we poured over numerous blogs and photographers websites before coming to the important decision. I couldn’t be happier with our choice of photographers. The communication before the big day was easy and prompt. On the day Karina and Rachel were relaxed and low key capturing lots of natural and candid moments unbeknownst to ourselves while also guiding us helpfully through the family and couple shots with lots of laughter along the way. Our photos are better than anything we could have hoped for. They absolutely capture the story of our wedding day perfectly. I love flicking through the photos and reliving the lovely memories, they captured it just as I saw it. I truly can’t recommend Rachel and Karina enough to anyone planning a wedding.
I am SO glad we booked Karina and Rachel to be our photographers for our wedding, they are amazing, so professional, kind, and they made us feel so comfortable. We were blown away by the finished photographs, couldn’t have asked for anything better. Highly recommend them!!
Karina and Rachel were a delight to work with for our wedding. They came highly recommended by our wedding make-up artist and the photos spoke for themselves. They were almost invisible on the day, and yet captured hundreds of beautiful moments. They took plenty of special candid shots whilst also ensuring we had photos of all of our families and friends to look back on. They made the process very easy, and took on board our special requests without fuss. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking out their wedding photographer, and wish them all the best in their continued successes.
Working with Karina and Rachel was a dream! Communication was so easy, fast, and personable. They easily worked around my crazy schedule and were so incredibly kind. We were fortunate enough to shoot with them twice (engagement photos and wedding) and can’t wait to find another excuse to do so. We have received so many compliments about them from our wedding this weekend. Everyone mentioned how personable, friendly, fun, and professional they were. We had a destination wedding and K&R made it a breeze for us! They watched the weather, scoured additional shooting locations, and generally put my mind at ease. They seamlessly integrated themselves into our day on Saturday. Involving themselves just enough to get the perfect shot but not too much that it was intrusive. They were easily the best vendors I worked with. I cannot recommend them enough.
Wow!! Wow!! Wow!!! Such beautiful pictures guys!!! We love them so much!! Thank you :) you captured the day so perfectly and the pictures are so classy. Can’t wait to share them with everyone! I can’t even choose a favourite!! Thank you 😊
Thank you both for your superb work, we are truly amazed by our wedding photos. The photos are absolutely beautiful, you managed to capture our special day moment by moment. Every time we look at the images we are reminded of the emotion, the laughs and fun of the day. You were both so professional and discrete and yet captured so many beautiful moments between family and friends. Your sense of calm, care and fun meant that you were a pleasure to work with and we are so happy with everything!

I just had a quick glance and they are fantastic. I forgot how beautiful the Shelbourne is inside and the light was great, I’m delighted with them. Some really funny ones too. I’ve been stalking the web at all the lovely wedding photographs you take. I knew from your site that we’d chosen the right photographer. Thanks for being so easy on the day it was wonderful.

You two did a wonderful job! We are so happy with the pictures! Thank you so much! We really appreciate all the time and effort you put in to making it such a great experience.
Where to start.... Living in Australia and planning our wedding in Ireland was tough, but Weddings by KARA made it easy throughout the entire process. We genuinely cannot thank the amazingly talented Rachel and Karina enough for their support and most importantly the laughs on our wedding day! Early morning visits to the country, a very late bride, rain showers, super large family shots, more rain (and a rainbow) and some late night shots.... They never stopped, every minute was spent ensuring each precious moment was captured and we cannot recommend this superhero duo enough! You made our day ladies!
I wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you so much for all your hard work. I’ve had some time to go through the photos and I have to say they are simply beautiful! You guys are so talented!!! We’re so very happy with the images! Honestly you were both such a pleasure to have around the house that morning during what was a very personal time for me and my family. You were so very polite and professional to all our guests too and both me and Eoin felt so at ease all day.
We want to thank you both so much for our incredible photos. They are everything we hoped for and so much more. You both captured the relaxed atmosphere that we hoped our day would have. I know Jim already said, but I just want to echo, how happy we were with the service you provided.
The photos are amazing. Really really amazing so thank you SO much!! :)You captured the day completely and love the colour and lighting in them all. Everyone we have showed them to think they are so amazing and are singing your praises. You both captured the whole day-feel like there isn’t a second missed. We loved having you there and you were so organised and professional and a pleasure to work with. We are recommending ye to everyone we know here and at home :)
Oh my god they are amazing! We have made it through about 1/2 an we love all of them thank you thank you. Wow, thank you- you ladies are the best!
We are overjoyed with the pics, we really are and we cannot thank you both enough!!! They are nicer than imagined, they genuinely are. We just showed the family and there was lots of tears. You captured every special moment, we can’t thank you both enough.

The photos are absolutely gorgeous!! Thank you so much. I am thrilled! You put me at ease and were so much fun to work with. It really was such a pleasure to have two such relaxed and fun people around all day. So thank you!
Thank you so much for all your hard work. We absolutely love our photographs!
We uploaded about 200 pics to Facebook last night and our friends and family have been going crazy! Lots of messages saying you are the best photographers they’ve ever come across! Hope you’re both doing well.
The photos are incredibly beautiful and capture the day moment by moment. Thank you so much. I love the mini film, we are incredibly happy with everything. Thank you for your professionalism on the day. You were both incredibly discreet and yet captured so many natural moments of our family and friends . We found the whole process incredibly stress free even though we are not the most natural people in front of the camera! Thanks again.
WE ARE CRYING because we’re laughing so hard. So many good ones!!! Thank you thank you thank you!
Wow, wow, wow, wow – they are truly amazing!! Brought tears to my eyes!!! Can’t believe how much I was smiling and laughing during the day!!!! So funny.. I couldn’t keep a straight face. OMG - We are speechless by the photos. Thank you both so so very much for capturing all the emotion of the day in the most spectacular way. We love every single photo and can’t wait to share them with our family. They are truly amazing.
Weddings by Kara are absolutely wonderful. Karina and Rachel looked after our wedding photography and mini-film in January 2015 and were fantastic throughout the process of booking, right through to getting our edited photos back. They are such a fun, friendly and calm pair, they were a joy to have in our home on the wedding morning catching all the bridal preparations. They captured all of the essential elements throughout the day and really got the feel of our celebration across through the photos. I’m so glad that we booked them!
To Karina & Rachel, Thank you both for sharing our special day with us. We absolutely love our photos and mini-film. You are both such a pleasure to work with and hope you are keeping well.
Got our wedding photos!! There are so many gorgeous pics. Thank you Karina for your amazing eye and beautiful photographs, you captured every moment from the day. Absolutely Fab :) We love the video, its fab, so professional! And Charlie, aw he looks the part in his little tux! I Love it! Its a beautiful film. (love the stop motion shoes!)
Just watched it again! It’s class! You’ve done an incredible job and are extremely talented. Thank you so much. You’re going to make our day very special. You captured the day so well! It looks great and the colours and detail are beautiful. Wow! Photos are amazing! You both are so talented! Thanks a million. We really appreciate everything ye’ve done and you have made the experience so relaxed and enjoyable for us.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the amazing photos! We absolutely love them and couldn’t be more grateful for them! We really appreciate that you did so many too! You and Rachel did a wonderful job! :D :D :D
The truly talented Karina and Rachel of Weddings by KARA without a doubt captured our wedding day in the most magical of ways! Karina and Rachel’s energy was so calming and on your wedding day you need calm talented people who are passionate about what they do. It is so obvious that Karina and Rachel love their jobs, they were excited all day taking fab shots on the lake, on the boat and of course in our drumming circle! Would highly recommend Wedding by Kara for that special touch!
Weddings by Kara - AMAZEBALLS!! We wanted really relaxed photography that was not posed but more candid and natural. Karina and Rachel were amazing. In the best possible way we didn’t really realise they were there half the time. They captured our day beautifully without imposing upon it and have given us the most amazing photos to remember our day by.
Oh my WORD!! Rachel we absolutely love them. I don’t want to admit to how many times I’ve watched the mini movie but it is a LOT!!Everything is just exactly how I wanted it. You and Karina captured it perfectly.
Hi Rachel & Karina, OMG I’m an emotional mess cause this is just INCREDIBLE!!!!! WOW ye have just done SUCH an amazing job, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
Hi Ladies,I just want to say what a brilliant job you did on the photos for our wedding. They are far better than I could have imagined. Ye had you’re work cut out for yourselves considering how camera shy I am and my side of the family are but ye managed to get some fantastic shots, I’m delighted with them. I’m in fits laughing at the photo booth ones (an idea i was a bit apprehensive about before hand) but they are amazing especially at showing the enjoyment on peoples faces. - EddieWow! We absolutely love the photos, they’re everything we hoped they’d be and more. A prefect snapshot of the day! I actually got a bit teary looking through them all, there were loads of little things I’d forgotten about till I saw the photos. Thank you both so much again. - Katie
I can’t tell you how many people have complimented us on the fabulous photography from our wedding. It was amazing to watch someone with such an artistic eye at work, and I knew even as you were snapping away that the images were going to be stunning. Not alone were the pictures fab, but you were such a lovely presence to have around, which I feel allowed you to catch people at their best, as they were always happy to see you. I would recommend you to anyone! xxx
We spent yesterday evening looking at your photos. They are out of this world beautiful. The great pics just kept coming. There are photos not just for us but family and friends. The children’s shots were just breathtaking! I don’t know how we are going to choose photos for the walls. We feel so lucky you were available, couldn’t have wished for more.
We received the photos and we just want to say a huge thank you. We absolutely love them all. They turned out better than we could have imagined. Seeing them brought back so many great memories of the day. You and Rachel were a dream to work with, you made everyone feel at ease and you captured so many wonderful moments without being intrusive. ... Once again we would like to say thank you for the amazing job you did with the photos and video. We can’t thank you enough. Best Wishes.
We just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the amazing job you did on our wedding day! We absolutely love the photos, they are truly stunning! You were so professional and really helped us to be comfortable and relax in front of the camera. Your calm, helpful and discrete attitude on the day kept it all running smoothly and ensured we stayed calm! The finished product could not have captured our day more beautifully. Thank you!
Keith & I just want to say thank you for your absolutely stunning work! The photographs are just perfect! You have a rare talent and i couldn’t be happier we chose you to capture our special day! Thank you so much!!!
The photographs are amazing! We love them so much. They are so natural and romantic and fun and colourful and soft!!!! Oh, they are just gorgeous. Thank you so much. We’re going to have such a job deciding what to frame!! There won’t be a bare wall in the house! We send you virtual hugs, kisses and slaps on the back!!! My family cannot believe how fabulous they are. We are just over the moon. It’s great and all thanks to you two. Thanks again, xxx”
I hope you are keeping well, I just wanted to drop you a note to say that Ronan and I and my family are completely blown away by the photos you took on our wedding day. They are amazing, I cant stop looking at them. You guys did an incredible job capturing all the key moments of the day, I have my work cut out for me choosing which ones to print. Sincere thanks again.
Karina,I love them!!!! You are such a great photographer, how unbelievably lucky it was to have found you! Really happy and I like all the ones you put into black & white & many others besides. You are the best. From the phone call to tell me you were coming down the night before, I felt comfortable and reassured. Your warm, relaxed energy & easy smile. Your ability to immediately know what to do, where to be and how to disappear & reappear at the exact right time! My parents and whole family adored you, and if all that wasn’t enough you took AMAZING pictures! Captured perfect moments & beautiful details I wouldn’t even have thought of, all with a fresh eye & sense of humor.
Rachel and Karina. Omar and I would like to thank you for the most beautiful photos and video! We are absolutely thrilled with them and will definitely recommend you to everyone we know! Best of luck to you both.
Erin and I sat down last night and looked through the photos. They’re absolutely wonderful and we are ecstatic to have them. Thank you SO So much!!! We will cherish them forever. Erin looks beautiful, you seem to have taken a picture of almost everyone there, and, most amazingly of all, you even managed to make me look good in a few - the ones I didn’t ruin by making stupid faces at the camera anyway! You are a master of your art and we’re delighted to have had such a talented photographer do this for us. We can’t wait to see the hard copies! With our sincerest thanks and best wishes
Thank you so, so much. You probably get this all the time, but the photos are absolutely amazing and our minds are blown. You are some kind of magicians. We’ve gone through them so many times already and I can’t wait for the DVD so we can share them all with our friends. The candid pictures are amazing. Especially the photo of Katie with the bubble which is just ridiculous. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
We’re just finished going through them - thanks so much. Ye were so amazing, so professional - we hardly even noticed that ye were there on the day yet the images you captured had so much detail! Some of the shots are absolutely priceless - moments captured in time that would’ve otherwise been missed. I really can’t thank you enough, going through the pictures transported us right back to the day again and will do for years to come. We LOVE them!! x x x x x
We just got back last night. We had a great time. Just had a look at the pics. AMAZING!!!!! Thank you so much they really are beautiful. Im so excited about making up the wedding album now
We got back at the weekend and had a chance to view the photos for the first time, we’re delighted with them, there are so many fantastic ones! Feedback from family and everyone who has seen them has been great too. We want to thank you both so much for the hard work you both put in on the day, covering the different locations and staying so long - we are delighted to have all those shots from early in the day right up to the evening - and you did an excellent job getting a range of shots in a very short time frame! I also have to say it was lovely having you around the house in the morning when everything else seemed a bit chaotic, you were both very calm and easy-going and the pictures you took then are some of my favourites.All the best and many thanks again - good luck with upcoming assignments!
Hi Karina,I just have to say “Wow!!!!” your photos are absolutely amazing, even better than we could have ever hoped for!!!! Louise and I love them and have gone through the slideshow a bunch of times together (Louise looks at it several times a day!!!! :)Scrolling through your photos is like re-living the day (without the stress). You really went above and beyond the call of duty, we really can’t thank you enough!!!!
Hi Karina, Well we are home safe and sound after a fab honeymoon. We have looked at the photos and are absolutely thrilled with them, they are sooo beautiful and really capture the atmosphere of the day! Thanks so much, they are truly wonderful images to put with our memories. Thanks again for all your work on the day. We really couldn’t be happier with the photos and will certainly recommend you to our friends.
Hi Karina,Happy new year!! We didn’t get a chance to thank you before you left the Wineport on the 29th.We absolutely adore the photographs, they are so amazing.......you captured everything, its been fantastic to relive the day (again and again!!)! Our family and friends are so impressed (so hopefully will order a few photos!)Thanks again for everything, will be in touch soon to chat about getting an album together.....Take care
Hi Karina,Thank you so much for the photos to date we are delighted. I must say you captured the morning and service so well I look forward to seeing the rest. You were fantastic on the day and everyone commented on how comfortable they were with you. My parents are blown away with your photos my Mum was quite emotional looking at them. Thanks again and we look forward to hearing from you
Dear Karina, It was an honour to have your photographic eye, ability and warmth on our wedding day! The photos are so warm, it brings a smile to my heart when I see them. The loveliest photographer of them all. It was a treasure to have the gift of your photography on our wedding day. You were so unobtrusive yet always present and made us feel so much at ease. The photos turned out beautifully - emotive and with our personalities and your natural stamp. Thank you so much.
We’ve arrived home from holidays and have had a good old look through the wedding photos. We’re delighted. You rock. We had lots of nice comments from family and friends about how polite and professional you guys were. Hats off.
Hey Karina, Got the photos last week - has just taken a while to go through them all..... they are absolutely brilliant and there are loads more than we were expecting which we really appreciate! From the pre-wedding consultations to the day itself, you were absolutely brilliant and unobtrusive which is exactly what we wanted - you both stayed on so late which was great and makes for interesting photos later on in the evening! We would have no hesitation recommending you, and just wanted to thank you once again for everything.
Hey! Have momentary wifi at a bar here, we keep talking about you and how wonderful and easy you made shooting the wedding. So present but so unobtrusive, so I just wanted to write and say thank you. Ruth is in love with you, as am I of course! Thanks a million
Hi Karina, Thanks for the photos, they’re brilliant! We’re delighted with them. I have no idea how we’re gonna pick out the ones for the album!
Hi Karina, I have to say that it was an absolute pleasure to have you there, you know exactly what you’re doing which is evident in your work. We are so happy to have chosen you, we wish you all the best in your career and the future.
