Wedding images bag Dermot new award

one of the award winning wedding images captured by Dermot Culhane

FOR wedding photographer Dermot Culhane it’s the spontaneous moments of love, joy, tears and humour that truly capture a couple’s big day.

The Castletroy-based photographer, who is now sought after throughout the country and the UK, has been awarded best wedding photographer 2016 at the Bank of Ireland Irish professional Photographer of the Year Awards, held in Dublin last weekend.

Images such as the one above, and many others laced with emotion, have helped earn him the coveted award.

“It is great to be recognised by the industry in such a competitive category, and this award reflects the positive feedback I have had from my clients during the last few years. A lot of planning goes into a wedding and I believe the photography should reflect the occasion accurately,” he told the Limerick Leader.

He also won the national wedding reportage Photographer of the Year in 2015 and 2014. His series of limited edition prints of New York and Irish landscapes sold out within days of being announced.
