Wedding Photographer based in Kilkenny Seamus Costelloe - About Me - Wedding Photography Kilkenny,


Seamus Costelloe_self portrait

Some people would consider me a perfectionist when it comes to photography and largely, this is true. But I also recognise the importance of capturing the essence of a special moment as it happens. There’s nothing quite like a sincere good quality photograph when time stands still for a second. I believe I also have a talent for finding that angle and character trait that exemplifies a person’s beauty and personality. I hope you’ll recognise this in the samples of work on my site and I look forward to talking about what you’d like
