Weddings

Joey took photos at our wedding in September 2014. She captured all the magic that our day included.  Joey was discreet, professional and very friendly, all our guests agreed with that.  However, what we really loved was the realness of Joey’s images and how they told the full story of our special day – we will treasure these pictures forever.

Grace and Michael Reynolds

We were both so grateful to have met up with Joey for a chat and discuss a plan before our big day. On our special day she was most helpful and patient. Joey has a natural gift as a photographer, her style is non-intrusive, plus being enthusiastic for our precious day. Each time we look at the photographs we relive the day and all the precious moments she captured. Joey had some amazing suggestions and ideas. We have a few pictures from our special day that Joey captured framed at home.

We are so pleased with our wonderful photos, everyone we share them with are also very impressed.

Thank you again Joey for the best memories of our wedding.

Rhona & Patrick McQuade

Joey was our wedding photographer over the summer of 2015. We were super happy with her pictures and would recommend her to anyone. She was approachable and flexible before, during, and after the wedding making sure that her photos reflected our big day appropriately. We will surely be using her services in the future whenever we need a professional photographer for a photoshoot.

Val & Adam Sebestyén

Joey was the photographer for our wedding in October 2017, a friend recommended her and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. In the lead up to the day, Joey was so approachable and helpful with suggestions of potential spots around the venue to use. In addition to being one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, the photos turned out incredible, and very natural – which was definitely down to her calming influence on the day! Joey went above & beyond to get us the perfect photos, couldn’t recommend her enough, you won’t be disappointed!

Ali & Jody O’Neill

Joey photographed our wedding party.  She did such a wonderful job at capturing beautiful, natural photos of everyone. She was very professional and we love how every photo has turned out. She really managed to capture the atmosphere of the party. I would highly recommend using her.

Newborns & Little People

I met Joey through a friend and originally asked her to take some photos of my first baby when she was very young. The photos she took captured something special in my daughter. These photos now reside in pride of place on my living room wall for everyone to see. Joey has since taken photos of my second daughter when she was first born and my wife and I treasure these images.

When I decided to set up my own business, I again wanted Joey to be the one that would capture what my business is about. I would highly recommend Joey, she is personable, professional and I have every intention on working with her in the future.

Richard Andreucetti, Owner of Strongbodies

We couldn’t have asked for anything better than our experience with Joey. She was lovely to work with, creative with the shots and the quality of the photographs were great.

Justine Butler 

We booked Joey to photograph our 18 month old daughter and we could not have been more impressed with how the project turned out. Joey was 100% professional and a total natural in getting a busy toddler to pose for some amazing photos, putting her at ease from the beginning. She has a great style and impeccable ability to choose the right settings to get her subjects looking their best. We would highly recommend her as a baby and toddler photographer.

Conor & Maria Breen

…A huge Thank You to Joey who worked a miracle with my very cranky 3 week old baby boy and somehow managed to get some adorable shots. She also took pictures of my other baby, my Shih Tzu, so a very difficult ask on all accounts. Thanks for your amazing patience & skill. I just love your work & I’m extremely happy with my photos.

Michele Brosnan

Joey came to our home to photograph my parents 6 grandchildren so she certainly had her hands full!  She was so patient and creative when working with the children, and they all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  Joey captured so much joy, happiness and love in the pictures.  We were thrilled with all the photographs and they have made such a beautiful gift for their grandparents.

Lynn Carroll

Joey came to take photographs of our triplets when they were 3 months old. I was very keen to get some photos of them together while they were so small and in particular a photograph that I could include with thank you notes to people after their birth. Joey was extremely professional, calm and lovely with the babies. She took some excellent photos that we will always treasure. I would have no hesitation in recommending Joey. She was a pleasure to work with and we will definitenly use her services again. Thanks Joey.

Grainne Convery

We had Joey over to take pictures of our 3 year old daughter and 2 month old son, and she did a fantastic job with the two of them. Our daughter can be a bit shy with strangers and often takes quite some time to warm up and talk to anybody she doesn’t know. However, Joey was just great with her, taking her time, showing and explaining the camera to her and getting her really interested. With this great introduction she warmed up to her and then the whole photoshoot was really lots of fun for her and for all of us. We got very nice images in black and white and colour – absolutely beautiful. She captured both of them with very natural and lovely expressions. Thank you Joey, I will keep recommending you to friends and family, and hope we will have you over again soon.

Julie Sebode

Thank you so much Joey! They’re fabulous and will be treasured by us. We really appreciate how kind and patient you were with us too.

Katie O’Neill 

For my daughter Millie’s communion we used Joey Dunne Photography. She was absolutely amazing, she put Millie totally at ease, and got fabulous natural shots of her and of the all the family and party guests.  I am so happy with the pictures, they capture a really magical day. I would highly recommend Joey. Thanks so much xxxxxx

Maternity

I wanted to capture some pictures of my twin bump and Joey created the most gorgeous images that we will treasure forever. She made me and my initially reluctant partner feel really relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience with a few laughs thrown in!  I couldn’t believe how natural the pictures looked and the way she captured the light and backdrop of Sandymount strand – such talent. Its lovely to work with someone who really enjoys what they do, and I look forward to having Joey capture more special moments for us when the twins are born with some family portraits in our home.

Rachel Byrne

Joey is a great photographer, she can direct and get the best shot in a wonderfully gentle manner. I felt very comfortable with Joey taking my pictures despite my pregnant belly being the focus of the lens! I would highly recommend Joey and you can see she loves what she does! I’m going to get Joey to do some family photos after the birth.

Martha Kenny

When I was pregnant with my second child a friend suggested I capture the moment & recommended Joey. I was a bit apprehensive at first but with Joey’s calming influence that didn’t last long. Joey did a great job making me feel comfortable. She is a true professional & I was really delighted with the end result.  Friends and family were very impressed & everyone comments on how lovely it is to have the photos & wish they had thought of it for themselves! It really is so lovely to capture this special time in your life & keep the memories forever…thank you Joey!

Tracy Kieran

I really enjoyed the photo shoot with Joey. We decided to go to the beach and even though the weather wasn’t great, it turned out brilliant. Joey has a great eye for detail and colour and you can really see that in her work. She knew how to distract me from the freezing cold water with her humour which is shown in the photos. I am really happy to have pictures of my pregnancy. It is a great way to remember this precious time. I am very grateful to Joey and I would recommend her to anyone.

Sammy Meredith

Absolutely thrilled with our beautiful photos. Jo has a great eye for catching the right moment in the right setting. With her kind and relaxed personality she really makes you feel at ease and thoroughly enjoy the experience.

Family Events

We recently had a family celebration where we used Joey Dunne’s photography services. Joey took a number of photos, both formal (where she somehow managed to get the whole family to smile & look in the same direction at the one time – which is an amazing accomplishment with small children) and incidental shots of the family enjoying the day. These incidental shots really captured our children’s sense of fun and are a fantastic accompaniment to the formal shots. Everything was carried out in a calm, friendly and professional way. The pictures took only minutes to take but we will treasure them forever as mementos of a special family day.

Jason & Nicola Guy

Thanks a million Joey. You captured the evening brilliantly and managed to put everyone at their ease.  You  are very professional and have an easy manner, were great with the guests and the end results were fantastic pictures. You are extremely talented with creative flare. I definitely hope we get to work together in the future.

Paula Kavanagh

The photos Joey took for my mother’s 80th birthday party were amazing, we can’t thank her enough. She’s a fantastic photographer! Many thanks again.

Eddie Keegan

Joey captured a conferring ceremony including a new baby – not an easy task! We were really impressed with the quality of her photography. Her professionalism & innovation gave us photos we will treasure forever. We will definitely book Joey to cover future events for us.

Alan & Regina Kenny 

Joey is an amazing professional. Her images are technically superb. She has a wonderful way of putting people at ease. Her eye is great; she knows what will make a good picture and is capable of creating the right setting. We booked Joey most recently to photograph our son Luke’s Christening and could not have been happier with the results. We will be booking Joey again for the next family occasion.

The Devitts/O’Tooles

Joey Dunne was the photographer at an all ladies afternoon tea party I hosted in the Shelbourne Hotel recently. The photographs were wonderful. Ladies of a certain age are notoriously critical of photographs of themselves so I was surprised and delighted when I received such positive feedback from the guests after they were presented with their souvenir photographs. I know for a fact that three at least have been framed!  Therefore, it is with confidence that I recommend Joey as photographer for any occasion. Her quiet, relaxed and professional approach give results which speak for themselves.

Mairin Smith

Joey was very professional, I was delighted with the quality of the photographs and her ability to work the room and capture the moment.

Thanks again Joey!

Joey, thank you again for your professionalism this morning  at the ‘International Volunteer Managers Day’, been there early, and just getting stuck in!  The photos are great, and they are getting lots of attention on our Facebook and Twitter. Looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

Edwina Dewart, Manager, Dublin City Volunteer Centre

Helium Arts runs a community film project called ‘Two Suitcases’ for teenagers living with health conditions. Last year, we worked with CanTeen, the national support group for teenagers with experience of cancer. Joey took beautiful behind-the-scenes shots of our summer film camp at IMMA. Joey has a warm and relaxed approach which immediately put the young people at ease and led to a series of candid photographs that captured both the film process and the fun the young people were having. Joey has a great eye for detail and capturing the essence of things and I would highly recommend her for these qualities and the sensitivity she brought to photographing the project.

Emma Eager, Project Manager, Two Suitcases Project, Hellium Arts 

Joey is sensitive to mood and occasion enabling her to capture images in an evocative and appropriate manner. She gives clear instructions and produces timely and professional results.

Owen Metcalfe, FFPH, Chief Executive, Institute of Public Health in Ireland

Solas Project has been very fortunate to have Joey on board as a photographer over the past 9 months, her willingness to give of her time and understanding of the sensitivity of our programmes have been greatly appreciated. Joey’s work is beautiful, and really captures the spirit of what we are doing. Her photographs have helped us share the message of our work and highlight the impact to our key supporters.

Clodagh O’Reilly, Operations Manager in the Solas Project

We approached Joey when we were looking for a photographer to help us record our ‘Darkness into Light’ event in the Phoenix Park back in 2011. Joey gracefully offered her time, talent & enthusiasm and we were absolutely delighted with the results so much so that Joey has become an integral part of helping us capture Darkness into Light every year since.

Suzanne Graham, Pieta House Board Member

We hired Joey to photographically capture a number of events we held in 2014 and we were extremely happy with the images.  Joey provides a professional service that is friendly, reliable, creative, value for money and efficient.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Joey for any event or function.

TDAF Coordinator – Tallaght Drug & Alcohol Task Force

Joey captured the re-launch of our organisation’s event. What I appreciated most was that she worked on her own initiative and captured the element of the event perfectly.  Joey had the photographs  back to us on the same night, in time to distribute to local print media. I found Joey to be professional, friendly and easy to deal with at all times.

Jamie Moore, South Dublin County Council Participation Network

It is not the first time I have been working with Joey. It has always been a wonderful experience! She is reliable and engaging and delivers a very good quality service. Joey has captured the atmosphere of the Intercultural Song festival and the mood of the participants perfectly!

Lyuba Moore, The Intercultural Centre, Clondalkin

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Photographer, Joey Dunne for this year’s women’s mini marathon.  She gave us an amazing selection and variety of photos that really captured the excitement and enthusiasm of our ladies on team Temple Street. Joey was an absolute pleasure to work with and made everyone feel at ease. Thank you so much Joey!

We would highly recommend Joey’s services to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is a joy to work with.

Terri Reynolds, Individual Giving and Campaigns Executive, Temple Street Foundation

Aspira Consulting recently engaged Joey Dunne to complete a Corporate Photo shoot for publication in a national business publication.  We required some outdoor photographs of the team.  Joey was very flexible and adaptable, producing top quality images in a very short turn-around time.  I am highly appreciative of her work and am happy to recommend her services.

Pat Lucey, CEO, Aspira Consulting

We are a relatively new start up and needed a photographer to get some professional photos for our website and social media.

We really can’t recommend Joey Dunne more! Joey was great from the beginning – she got back to us right away and knew exactly what kind of photos would work best for our needs. We called out to one of our first customers and Joey was great at planning the photos, directing us to where we needed to be, and working professionally and efficiently when we were tight for time.

We already have more photos we will need in the next few months and will be going back to Joey again for anything we need!

Shane Reilly, Moyee Coffee Ireland

Joey recently took some photographs at my ‘Wellness Yin Yoga workshop’ that took place in Bray. I wanted to capture the gorgeous light that floods the room where it was held and natural organic shots of the day in action. Joey captured these moments very well and also the lovely gently energy of some of the yoga poses. She made the whole process very easy and I would recommend her as a photographer for any occasion.

Portraits

Joey is a really talented photographer with a massive kind heart and just so easy to get along with. Joey did commercial shots for my new guidance and coaching business which turned out really super! She made me feel really comfortable in front of the camera and the whole thing felt very natural, something I did not expect. I couldn’t recommend her more. She is gifted and so lovely to be around xx

Elena Mifsud Personal, Executive, Career Coach and Guidance

I had a wonderful experience in the dance studio with photographer,  Joey Dunne. She is super professional, positive and very encouraging. She had great ideas and gave me feedback throughout. I am so happy with the end result. Thank you Joey!

Anne-Marie Brennan, Dance Instructor/Choreographer

I had so much fun shooting with Jo. I was made feel very comfortable, and at ease in front of the camera. There was zero stress, and the images provided were top quality and so natural. I look forward to working with her in the future.
