Have you always been dreaming of having a destination wedding or elopement in Ireland? Can you already see yourself having a romantic and intimate wedding in the beautiful Irish landscape? Of course you can combine your destination wedding with a super romantic honeymoon in Ireland or a post wedding couple shoot for example in Dublin.
You’re a laid-back couple who want a beautiful but relaxed wedding day, with a group of just your favourite people at an epic but chilled location. You’re looking for a wedding photographer that knows their stuff, who will tell you what you can do beforehand to get the most stunning imagery possible. You’re looking for someone who is so thoroughly prepared she won’t bother you on your wedding day itself because her team know what they’re doing so well that they seem as relaxed and happy as if they were one of your guests.
Wedding Photographer in Ireland
I am Renate van Dijk and I am a destination wedding photographer and the founder of Wit Photography. I specialise in weddings abroad in Europe and I am based in The Hague, London and Belgrade. I photograph weddings all around Europe and I love destination weddings. Have a look at my wedding photography portfolio and find out where I have been traveling to because of this passion. I would love to photograph your wedding in Ireland because I am addicted to traveling. But I love it even more when I get to photograph awesome couples at all kinds of magical places in the world. I mean grand castles, the gorgeous Irish coast or picturesque cobblestone villages are all swell and stuff but it’s not half as good as placing a loving and fun loving couple within that frame.
I can give you lots of tips on having a stress free destination wedding. I often travel to Ireland for weddings abroad and I grab every opportunity to travel through this fantastic country. Previously I photographed in Sligo, Riverstown and Dublin. And I can’t wait to shoot more weddings, elopements and love shoots in other Irish locations! So don’t hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding in Ireland. I can’t wait to hear all your wedding plans.
In case you’re looking for a wedding venue in Ireland, a fabulous stylist or a wedding planner feel free to contact me as well, I’ll gladly help!
I will help you with finding the best Irish vendors. And I’m pretty sure we will find the perfect match for you and your partner so that everything on your wedding day will be as you imagined it would be.
With all the stress that comes with organising a wedding, the last thing you need is to worry about cramping your day into 8 hours of wedding photography. Your wedding is the only wedding I’ll shoot that weekend. As a matter of fact I’ll be with you the entire day. I don't care if your wedding is 6 hours or 16 hours, actually I prefer capturing the whole story of your day. For me the real work starts after the wedding day, when I start editing you images.
Unlike other photographers, you can print your photos wherever you want. You receive all your photos fully edited and in high-resolution, so you can do with them whatever you want. You can even print your own wall-art and albums (of course I can also arrange those for you if you prefer) and you can keep all your digital files safe wherever you want, without any extra costs.
I traveled all over the world, photographed in all types of weather circumstances and shot weddings as big as 200 guests and as small as 11 guests. With my experience you don’t have to worry about a thing. Shooting in the snow in Austria/with lots of bright light in Italy/in a dark castle in Scotland/while being sandblasted in Iceland? I’ve done it! Plus my pricing includes travel costs within Western Europe, I speak English (and Dutch) at near-native level, we can meet in London or Holland beforehand and I am familiar with all the English, Dutch and American wedding customs and traditions.
Now you know a bit about me, I would love to hear more about you! I would love to hear all of your plans and ideas for your wedding. Please fill in this email form or email me your story in your own words at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can see if me and my photography are a fit for your wedding. When you fill in the form and tell me about your plans I will email or call you back asap (at least within 48 hours) to let you know my availability for your wedding in Ireland.

'Renate was so easy to work with'
Marina & Stephen about their destination wedding in Serbia
'Having our wedding in a different country meant that we had a briefing with Renate over email which was as successful as in person as we were asked the right questions that put us at ease... On the day of our wedding celebration Renate was so easy to work with... She was responsive to all our requests as well as being non-intrusive and told the story of our day with main points beautifully captured... We are happy customers with photos to show it.'
I’m the kind of wedding photographer who believes that the most important thing on a wedding day is that you enjoy yourselves and have the most epic day possible. I wouldn’t dream of bothering you with posing while you’re cutting the cake and stuffing a piece of cake into each others mouths. I’m a non-traditional, documentary type of fine art destination wedding photographer that loves anything alternative and quirky. Read more...
