Kind Words

I’ve received some very kind words over the years. It’s what makes my job a joy, and is the most job satisfaction you can ever have! Here’s a few –Ballycotton_wedding_roryotoole-1576.jpg

We can’t say enough about Rory and his fabulous photos!
Rory photographed our wedding at Barnabrow in August, and we couldn’t be happier with his service and with the results.
Rory was super flexible and accommodating during the crazy months coming up to the big day. Even though we are living in Canada, it was always easy to keep in touch with Rory, and he somehow managed to allay any logistical stresses that we had.
On the day itself, he was so easy to have around: good fun while calm and collected. His easy-going nature meant that he helped us feel relaxed too. Getting our photos taken never seemed like an imposition on our time. Rory just slotted right in with the whole day and managed to capture it all.
Rory had lots of creative and fun photo ideas for us to try out throughout our wedding day. He was also always open to any of our own ideas, and was respectful of allowing us time to chat with everyone and simply enjoy the day.
Then! When we got to see our photos, we were absolutely thrilled. We genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better photographer or for more beautiful photos. We will truly always treasure his work.
Thank you Rory! We hope to meet you again someday at a friend’s wedding … or if we have another event of our own you will most certainly be our photographer of choice.

Myself and my new other half Michelle could not recommend Rory highly enough. From the day we first met him, to our engagement shoot, to the big day itself and the meetings we have had since…he has been both the utmost professional as well as an absolute gentleman. During the wedding he was an integral part of the day without being overbearing or taking over. The quality of his photography speaks for itself, the proof book he sent us is packed full of beautiful shots from such a wonderful occasion…he has the “Je ne sais quoi” when it comes to photography…an eye for the unusual shot which produces stunning and memorable images, as well as fantastic family shots and pics of the wedding party. We could not be happier with the results. He’s a star.

We are so happy we chose Rory to photograph our wedding. On the day he was patient and so generous with his time. Even though we are both a bit camera shy, his relaxed manner really put us at ease. He sent us a slideshow preview of our photos and we absolutely love them. He blended in on the day and captured so many great, natural photos unbeknownst to us. We can’t wait to see the rest of them!

We got Rory to cover our wedding and he was brilliant. He met us a month before the wedding to discuss what we wanted and gave us tips which were helpful.
HIs work was brilliant and looking back at the pics he covered all angles really well.
He had been very friendly and easy to work and defo recommend him for any event.

Thanks Rory for the brilliant shots !!

To Rory
Thank you so much for capturing our special day. Anthony and I couldn’t be happier with the photos they are just amazing. You’ve been such a pleasure to deal with, in the lead up to the wedding, on the day and after.
Thanks again

Rory O’Toole really did contribute to making our day so special and stress-free. From the very first meeting, Rory gave us great advice and tailored a package according to our needs at really competitve price. He included an “engagement shoot” which gave us a chance to get to know Rory and, more importantly, to get over our self-consciousness in front of the camera ahead of our Big Day. Rory, from his years of experience, gave invaluable advice on timings and management of all the different stages of the day, we are very grateful for this. We are also very grateful for the gentle prodding of the bridegroom’s party to get into position on time! Throughout the day Rory was a lovely presence, never intrusive, putting everyone of all ages at ease, and bringing out our best no matter how camera shy. As a dad himself, he really put the children at ease and captured some very special family moments. Mostly, we are so grateful to Rory for capturing the real joy and love we felt on the day. Rory O’Toole is a talented, experienced photographer, part wedding planner, and 100% gentleman.

“Rory was the ideal choice as our photographer, we didn’t even notice that he was taking some pictures and he captured some fantastic moments as a consequence. He blended straight in and got on great with all our guests. We are really happy with how he captured our day.”

– Laura & Rowan

“Rory was recommended to us by a colleague and when we met him before our wedding we were impressed by his professionalism and by his friendly nature. Rory was really great at our wedding, putting us all at ease and knowing exactly how to get the best photographs that really captured the fun of the day. We are still delighted with the photographs from the wedding and a true testimonial is that we’ve asked Rory to take photographs of our new baby daughter!”

We will certainly be recommending you to anyone we hear of who is getting married…Thanks a million for everything.”

“We would like to thank Rory for his excellent photography at our wedding in Oct 2012. Rory made it exceptionally easy for us all day. While one of us is camera shy and the other gets easily stressed, Rory made us very comfortable and eased our nerves all day….we didn’t even know he was there most of the time which is the sign of a good photographer. We are delighted with the quality of photos and his natural approach. Thanks Rory!”

– Kay & Keith
