What Our Clients Say

Such a positive experience, Les was great with the kids, especially Aoife, she was only 8 months and very shy... The end result is fantastic. We'll be back for sure!

Les was our wedding photographer in December 2015 and we also had the video package. I can highly recommend both. Les in particular was absolutely fantastic and made us look the part! The two lads were so unobtrusive during the day that we actually questioned if they were still around but the proof was in the pudding when we got our photos and dvd. Not only did they manage to capture our day like scenes from 'Gone with the wind' , they were with us well after first dance. Les is a complete gentleman and I was put at ease weeks before the big day. While we were researching suppliers during the wedding planning Les stood out from the first moment of meeting him, we knew he was the one! We definately recommend to make Les Kelly your first and last photographer to meet during your wedding planning!

Les took some amazing commercial photographs recently to support our Business - He is accommodating and brings out the best in his subjects. Would highly recommend Les and will certainly use him again in the future.


( MD TheBestOf )

I got married this summer, and, as a photographer myself, I spent way too much time worrying about who I would get to capture the event. From the moment I looked through Les’s portfolio, I knew I had the right guy. He had the kind of eye I was looking for and I knew he’d understand where I was coming from. We had a couple of meetings before the day to finalise ideas, check the location and so on, and Les made us feel like he had everything in hand, which in turn allowed to relax and concentrate on other things. On the day, Les was amazing. He battled against strong sunlight, more guests interrupting our shoot-time than you would believe possible, and vanishing members of the bridal party! And he still managed to get us the shots we wanted as well as some really wonderful ones we never expected. We look through our pictures now and feel they really reflect not only the day, but our personalities, too. I can’t recommend him highly enough for any occasion. Andy (& Michele)

I have been busy over the past number of months trying to grow my business and part of that involved the production, design and putting together of my new website. A huge part of this project involved the generation of good graphics and professional photographs. Thus me needing the help of a professional. That I found in Les Kelly. For my website, I wanted to give my existing and indeed my new customers a real flavour for what it is that I do and what it is that I feel so passionate about. I work as a health and safety professional and health and safety trainer and capturing this for my website was critical. Les however, made this very easy for me. Les travelled to site on the day of the photo shoot without hesitation, in fact Les travelled to three sites with me on the day. Throughout the day, Les asked me what exactly I was hoping to achieve from the pictures once they were ready. Once I understood this in my own mind, I was able along with Les and my customers to make the best of the day and really capture what it is that I do on a day to day basis. The pictures turned out really, really well and I am over the moon with them. They really captured me in the working environment, interacting with my clients and highlighting my hands on approach. We had a great day overall and a nice cup of tea and a chat to finish off. Many thanks again Les ! Linda :o)
