About Me

Dena Shearer - Wedding Photographer Dublin

Hi there! I’m Dena. A wedding photographer based in Dublin who loves to capture weddings of real people just having fun!

Dena Shearer

This is me!!

I’m Dena. I’m a South African who has lived in Ireland for 18 years and just loves it! Ok, the weather took a bit of getting used to but I’m there now ;-)

I’m married to an Irish man, John, and we have a beautiful little boy, Elliot.

  • I’m a South African who grew up in Botswana, studied at Rhodes University in South Africa and moved to Ireland when I was 22 years old.
  • I love to travel, specifically to hot countries!
  • I would spend more money in a great restaurant rather than a pair of heels! Great food and wine is an essential part of my happiness routine.
  • Festivals, gigs and DJ sets are food for the soul (all this has slowed down since Elliot came along but the dancing at home hasn’t!)
  • John and I are quite the muso’s but I’m a sucker for 80’s pop!
  • I love dogs, we don’t have one but I’m working on it ;-)
  • A great coffee shop is my dream place.
  • A good walk is spiritual to me.
  • I like my own space but couldn’t live without the buzz of people too.

When John and I tied the knot, we prioritised love, laughter, music, and the company of those dear to us. This philosophy reflects in the weddings I photograph. It’s about cherishing genuine moments, celebrating love, and creating memories with the ones who mean the world to you.

My Style

I’m inspired by raw, candid emotions – I want to portray all the magical moments that happen on your day in a fun, relaxed manner. My approach is friendly, relaxed and unobtrusive. I’m there when you need me and blend into the crowd when you don’t! If this approach resonates with you, I can’t wait to chat with you and get to know you better.
