We are Jessica and Danilo, best known as Jess & Dan, best friends, sushi lovers, cacti collectors and married for almost 6 years. We share many things in common, but our love for documentary wedding photography and filmmaking is our biggest passion and is what brought us together. We don’t just photograph weddings, we photograph unique couples with their one and only personalities and we feel their love story should be documented and told just as it is,
Who we are in a nutshell!
Not many people can say they feel fulfilled in their job, but, listening, capturing and telling unique love stories is our life fulfilment. We are available nationwide and for destination weddings and elopements abroad.
Why you should hire us!
We bring our passion, professionalism and an enthusiastic personality to every wedding, by knowing each other so well we work great together anticipating each others thoughts and moves. We always get to know our couples personalities and listen to their unique love story and we incorporate it into the way we continue to tell their story on their wedding day. We use a documentary style to photograph and film certain aspects of the wedding such as the getting ready part, we stand back and let the story unfold while we capture each and every genuine laugh and tear. We also incorporate some styled shots during the couples session while also capturing genuine candid moments. Working together we ensure that we tell your story from various different angles, after all you will only have ONE FIRST KISS, so we want you to make the most of it.
We are based in Ireland but willing to travel anywhere & everywhere!!!
Why we do what we do.
For some time in our lives we struggled to find our purpose in life and so we tried many different things but we always felt as if there was something missing. After we went home having photographed our first wedding we were filled with excitement and a sense of self fulfilment, we had finally found what we were meant to do, and we could not wait to photograph the next and the next and the next wedding, this feeling also remains with us as filmmakers and thats why we continue to do what we do.
The leaf symbol of Jessica & Danilo photography is not just any leaf. We wanted to incorporate our love for the outdoors and everything Irish. We chose the Silver Birch as it is one of the most sacred trees of the Celtic mythology, it symbolizes protection and a new beginning which mirrors your future life as a new married couple.
The Silver Birch is a very resistant tree, it is an extremely treasured tree due to its silver bark and delicate leaves. Once again the poetess in me can’t help but think of a marriage, resistant, beautiful and yet delicate.
What our couples had to say!
“Jess and Dan, we are just on our way to Paris for a few days but I wanted to send you the biggest thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jess, not only did you capture the most beautiful moments you went above and beyond organising chairs, tables and setting up which was far beyond your job for the day. You were the best with Orla and Wyatt keeping them happy all day. Dan, the pictures of Gary are amazing. He looks so handsome! He isn’t a picture kinda guy so getting those moments from him I’m so thankful for. You both work so well as a team. My whole family was raving asking where I found you and I’m just thankful for the internet that I did. Thank you for the sneak peak the day after, I love every single photo!! Can’t wait to post one for the world to see. You both made my our day beyond my dream fairytale! I wish I could get married every weekend have you guys there every time! I tear up even writing this email because you really helped make our day perfect!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! If you are ever in Canada let us know!
Love,”Pam and Gary
“Jess you and Dan make an amazing team. From the minute I emailed you and had a chat over the phone - I knew you are the photographer for our intimate wedding, you were so friendly and you just put me at ease. Not only because you capture the most important emotional moments in a beautiful and unique way & you and your team are all awesome professionals in your area, but also because for me personally and most importantly- your personality is very close to my heart - warm, kind, honest, friendly - we understood each other from the first chat we had.M&M
Whoever loves the good aura around them, Jessica’s spirituality, friendliness, honesty and professionalism will bring it to your wedding and the most amazing photos the day after the wedding, I loved waking up to see some of our wedding photos, it was lovely. Sending lots of love, a hug and a kiss to you once again Jess ! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!”
“Jess and Dan went above and BEYOND for our elopement in Ireland. We cannot recommend them enough! Jess was so friendly and helpful from the very first e-mail, she helped me arrange our location and she helped me to get the bouquet and boutonniere. It’s hard organising everything from the other side of the world so having her help was indispensable. On top of all that, the photos are just phenomenal! Thank you so much Jess, you and Dan captured our emotions and little intimate moments so well, we can now relive everything again and again because of the awesome photos and most incredible film ever. The wedding film highlights is AMAZING, this was os important to me as my family were not present but now they can watch the film and feel as if they were. All I can say is Thank you, if you’re ever in America let me know.K&C
“Simple yet extraordinary!C&LLove from the Maldives
I have had no doubt in choosing Jess and Dan for my proposal in Ireland as I was instantly amazed by their work in their website and they did not disappoint! Although not living in the same country they were always reachable and willing to help. They are amazingly skilled photographers & filmmakers, they managed to portray our relationship through the camera and they nailed it. We enjoyed ourselves during the shoot and they made us feel at ease, but most importantly, we have made new friends.”
