Testimonials - Hannah Larkin Photography

What my couples say about me

“Hannah just recently sent over our full wedding gallery from our wedding day. Eoin (my new husband!) and I savoured each picture that Hannah so beautifully captured from the day. Her work moved me to joyful tears, goosebumps, and giddiness (just to name a few emotions!), as I felt like I was re-living all of the special moments that made up the happiest of days. Hannah knows just how to capture the essence of everything she photographs... such a talent”

Dana & Eoin

“Hannah's ability to capture the essence of the day and particularly all the emotions from the happy giddy moments to the intimate quiet ones is really incredible and we knew we wanted her to photograph our day as soon as we got engaged. We adore the photos she has taken and looking through them just takes us right back to the day. Hannah offers an engagement shoot as part of her package. Beforehand, I thought this was a nice bonus but actually it was so useful spending time being photographed as a couple and getting over the awkwardness! She kept everyone organised whilst also being subtle and getting so many lovely candid shots. She kept a close eye on the weather and whisked us away at twilight in a brief gap from the rain to get some fantastic couple shots by the river”

Niamh and Matthew's Wedding

"I have to say the first thing that I noticed about Hannah was her absolute and genuine interest and enthusiasm for our wedding, from the very beginning she made me feel she was just as interested in the day as we were, and was so eager to help us achieve what we wanted from our wedding photography. I felt very comfortable from the beginning and could tell that we'd be in safe hands. I was a bit of a clueless bride to be honest and hadn't really thought about what kind of photos we wanted or what we wanted to capture, but by asking careful questions Hannah was able to establish exactly what we were looking for and even thought of extras like bringing along a white umbrella in case it rained (which it did!).

On the day she was the epitome of calm and friendly professionalism - she put us all at ease right away and one of the biggest bits of feedback I got from all the guests on the day was how seamlessly Hannah blended in and captured so many wonderful moments throughout the day without making people feel as if there was a camera in their face. Everyone thought she was so friendly, kind and lovely, and all our photos really reflect the laid back, relaxed atmosphere that pervaded throughout our wedding day.

The photos we got were absolutely amazing - I really love the stylish, arty shots Hannah took with my shoes, earrings and dress at the beginning of the day, and the shots of the ceremony are really intimate, she really managed to capture some special moments without being obtrusive in any way. The 'posed' family shots are really wonderful (and she was great at getting loitering family members into the correct positions!) and the reception shots really capture the fun atmosphere of the day. Hannah worked tirelessly from the moment she arrived until the moment she left, she was a consummate professional, really friendly and at ease with everyone, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone getting married (and have done since!)"

Niamh & Matt 

"We were delighted with our choice of photographer - we hate having our photo taken but Hannah really put us at ease and we have some wonderful mementos of the day. Hannah is extremely reliable, ultra organised, passionate about what she does - and talented. We'd highly recommend her. Hannah was great to have around on the day, which is so important for such a special occasion and the amount of time the bride in particular spends with the photographer. She was warm and friendly, calm (even when things were behind schedule and I was stressed) and quietly authoritative (directing my family for group shots isn't an easy task). We're also now great advocates of the pre-wedding shoot (although we were initially horrified at the prospect - did I mention we don't like having our photo taken?). It was definitely worth it - we were painfully awkward in front of the camera at first but very relaxed on the day, and I'm convinced the photos on the day were all the better for it"

“My husband and I were looking for a photographer who could provide us with timeless photographs which would give us good memories of our big day – Hannah successfully achieved just this. During the wedding we developed a very good friendship, which is reflected in the images she has captured. We would strongly recommend Hannah to any couple looking to tie the knot. She works extremely hard and we are proud to have her images on our walls. Hannah is a friendly, well organised and professional photographer. She is very passionate about capturing a couple’s happiness on their special day – which is well reflected in all of the photographs she has taken for us.

We initially had our pre-wedding photo shoot – which helped us to get to know each other. She was very supportive in choosing locations and organising the day. We were nervous about being photographed in public, but she made us feel relaxed and comfortable, making it very enjoyable.

Our wedding was a complex one, composed of several events including a registry, mehndi and sangeet, Hindu wedding ceremony and the wedding reception. This was Hannah’s first opportunity to photograph a Hindu wedding, but we had a lot of confidence in her ability and her work. She took time out to read and understand the various steps of the Hindu ceremony and asked plenty of questions to ensure she would capture all the important stages in the wedding and also key moments for us.Given the time constraints on the wedding day, Hannah visited the wedding venue and the gardens in advance to identify points of interest for the couple photo shoot, in order to make it run smoothly. She also helped us with the timetable of the day and the photo groups. ​

On the day of the wedding, her amazing personality helped us to relax during the more tense times of the day. All the organising and preparations Hannah had conducted prior to the day became fruitful, which allowed us to capture all the photographs we wanted to. In addition, there were some surprises which my husband wanted to make, and Hannah made sure she was available at the right time and place to capture it. After the wedding was complete, Hannah was very quick to supply us with all the photographs of our events and also gave us direction and support in terms of selecting photographs for the album. One of the key attributes which made Hannah stand out in comparison to our other suppliers, was the promptness in her replies and the invaluable advice and support she provided before and on the day of the wedding. Thank you!”

What my families say about me

"I cannot recommend Hannah highly enough. I used to think that the skill of a photographer is a technical one: getting perspectives and light just right. After Hannah photographed my newborn daughter, I realised that there is something additional that a professional photographer needs: the ability to see what others see. For us, she saw and captured so many facets of our baby girl's personality, in little instances when she revealed them. Our daughter is now two years old, and we still look back on those photographs with delight, marvelling at how aspects of her character were showing themselves even then, but even more magically, that a person who met her for the first time could see and record those for us to enjoy forever"

Kathryn, Simon & Naomi

“Working with Hannah was an absolute pleasure. She made us feel relaxed and captured the most precious family moments. Through Hannah’s magical lenses we can now cherish those lovely moments forever. The second session was even more magical: we had a family fun (sunny) day in the park. Can’t wait for the third session to celebrate the arrival of the new family member! Wonderful photographer who became a friend too!”

Joana, Stephen & John

“Children are so difficult to photograph as they move about so much, but Hannah has a knack of just capturing their essence. Her framed photos take pride of place in our home and people always comment on how beautiful the shots are. Hannah has been photographing our family regularly for the past 3 years. She initially did a newborn photo shoot of our second son and we were so pleased with the results that it has become an at least annual event since!”
