Welcome to Muiread Kelly Photography

A bit about me, Muiread Kelly, Downpatrick, County Down, Northern Ireland based wedding and portrait photographer in a nut shell.

Photography was always a passion of mine since I was a child so of course I had to do my university degree in Photography.  In 2008 I qualified with a BA Hons degree in documentary photograph.  I knew portraiture was my calling and after planning my own wedding I knew weddings were my forte.  I’ve been a professional Wedding and Portrait photographer for ten years and ran my own business for 8 years.  I have an amazingly supportive husband and 3 gorgeous daughters.  We live in rural Down, just outside Downpatrick with 3 dogs, a cat and 4 horses.  Life is hectic, buzzing and full-on but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling.  If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures” – Don McCullin

I have a general love for portraiture photography especially when these photographs mark an important milestone for a family.

Romance

Many people ask me why I like to photograph weddings and the answer is a simple one: I feel very proud and honoured to capture my bride and grooms day.  Its the nicest feeling in the world handing over the finished photographs knowing that they will cherish them for all of their lives.

Quite often, these beautiful brides become friends for life, because after all, wedding photography (done in the right way) is personal and intimate.  I don’t just simply take photographs, my wedding experience allows me to go the extra mile to ensure your entire day runs smoothly.
