Ciaran O’Neill Photography is one of Northern Ireland’s leading wedding and portraits studios, specialising in medium /high-end weddings across Northern Ireland and the northern part of the Republic of Ireland. Ciaran and his team can also travel further if requested, they have recently covered weddings in Spain, France, England and Scotland.
The team is made up of three incredibly talented and creative individuals, throwing different talents and skills into the mix.
Majella is the Studio manager responsible for front of house, dealing with customer enquiries, initial meetings with prospective clients and assisting them in every aspect of the wedding leading up to their big day. Majella also looks after their social media, keeping all clients up to date with all their latest exploits. For many clients she has become their first call for enquiries or problems in any area of their wedding planning.
Simon has two roles in the business. Firstly he is their digital guru. He edits and prepares all wedding images for client selection, social media and now famous “Society Weddings” blog. Once clients have selected their favourite images, either in person, in their dedicated wedding room or through the Ciaran O’Neill online preview system from their homes around the world, Simon creates a unique and personalised album design. Once all the images have been approved, these designs are sent to an album manufacturer in Italy to be produced in the most stunning Napa leather, stainless steel or polished acrylic materials. Simon’s other role is as a photographer in both their modern and well equipped studio and on location at weddings. His eye for a great image along with his sense of humour have helped him win several awards for children’s portraits, fashion and of course wedding photography.
Finally, that leaves Ciaran, he has the luxury of being part of a great team and is happy leaving Majella and Simon to do what they do best, giving him time for his two roles. Firstly, concentrating on creating images his clients will love and cherish for a lifetime and yet have time to develop our ever-evolving photographic style. His goal is to constantly mix the beautiful images that clients love with new and innovative images. His second is to steer the business. In the ever-changing world of business, and in particular photography, its crucial to be aware of changes in trends and fashions not to mention technical developments.
“We try to compare ourselves to two market leaders. We think of ourselves as the ‘BMW’ of Northern Ireland wedding photographers. We offer a very high quality product. Others may offer more “whistles and bells” but what use are these if the core product is not up to standard. We offer peace of mind and, we like to think, our brand carries more than a little prestige. The second market leader we compare ourselves to is Madonna. Her knowledge of the business, her foresight and most of all, her passion for her music have kept her right at the pinnacle of the music industry for more than 3 decades. We like to think our experience, knowledge and passion have maintained our position as one of Northern Ireland’s most sought after wedding photographers over the last 25 years.”
Ciaran O’Neill Photography has become synonymous with cutting edge photography and quality products having won more awards (7 UK titles and numerous NI titles) in more genres (wedding, fashion, portrait and press) than any other photographer in Northern Ireland.
