Jay Doherty Photography aims to provide today's bride and groom with a completely fresh experience.
Hi, I'm Jay, a wedding and portrait photographer from Donegal in Ireland. I have always been a photographer, my father before me was too. I began my photographic business 6 years ago. I love to shoot weddings, I love to shoot children and family moments. My style is unique, my approach is informal, fun and often verging on high-energy. My wedding clients and families mean a great deal to me, and I do realise how lucky I am in becoming such an important part of your lives, for a while anyway. I like to meet with couples, drink tea, eat fancy biscuits and get to know their stories, their loves and fears before we make any photographs. With each new assignment I will try to push our creativity levels. I am constantly seeking new photographic locations; I thrive on Donegal hilltops, golden barely fields, leave-carpeted forests, cosy Irish pubs.
Our recent wedding was no doubt one of the finest experiences of my life, second only to the birth of my daughter. We live in the peaceful surroundings of Inishowen in Donegal and as an outdoor family we spend our weekends around the coasts or on the road seeking adventure. I do live a simple life, but possessions-wise I cherish my Nikon D800 camera, my Bedford 'Bambi' campervan and anything made by Polaroid. I can't resist Arthur Guinness' Porter, the occasional Black Bush and a toasty turf fire at home.
