Fionn was a pleasure to work with right from the start. As we live in the US but are originally from Ireland we needed someone who was organized and made us feel at ease since all communication was from a distance. A month before the wedding, Fionn visited the venue and put together a location storyboard; this was a huge help to us as we had never been to the venue, it gave us a clear vision of what to expect on the day. One thing we knew for certain is that we didn’t want the typical staged wedding photos; we wanted our day to be captured as naturally as possible. Fionn did an incredible job at this, all of our photos are candid and beautiful, and every photo is so unique. Fionn is extremely talented, professional and fun to work. We highly recommend him.

We just wanted to say a last thank you. We love the wedding album, it is exactly what we wanted.You were a pleasure to deal with the whole way through the process, and both you and Vinny were fantastic on the day and really added to the experience for us. We have nothing but happy memories from the day and I'm not sure everyone can honestly say that! We can't recommend you highly enough to anyone who asks, and hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Thanks again Fionn.

I couldn't recommend Fionn from Studio 33 enough. He was so professional and friendly, brought a great atmosphere to the day. He had previously carried out two of my friends weddings so we knew the quality and standard of his work would be great. He really knew his stuff and gave great suggestions on locations to take photos for the day and had back up plans for bad weather. We met up with him a few weeks before the wedding and he created a storyboard of the day for us and we were so comfortable and excited by all his ideas. He brings a second shooter with him so great to have the two photographers to ensure everything is captured.

When we started planning our wedding we knew we wanted something a little left of centre. With this ‘little left of centre’ plan was a vision of photographs that captured the atmosphere of the day, our guests enjoying themselves, the little details and above all else nothing that was formal or would fit into the traditional wedding photo category. Ed and I were both sure that we didn’t want staged family and/or wedding party photos which looked formal and stuffy. Our initial plan for our photography was to get a friend with a good eye to take the photos but a good friend convinced us otherwise (thankfully!).
I stumbled across Fionn’s work on a wedding blog and I loved his style instantly. It was atmospheric, informal, fun and quirky! It looked like he could tick all our wedding photography boxes! Fionn and I met and started chatting and without hesitation I booked him for our wedding. The photography was one of our biggest spends on the day but undoubtedly the most worthwhile and in retrospect the best value for money. Everyone that has seen our photographs have been beyond complimentary with comments of ‘it’s like something from a magazine’, ‘wow’, ‘amazing photographer’, ‘where did you find him’ etc. Fionn understood exactly what we wanted from the beginning and on the day, along with his second shooter, worked so very hard. Without a doubt he was the most professional of all our wedding suppliers from start to finish. The result of his talent and professionalism is some of the most beautiful photos of our friends and family and some pretty good ones of us! Thank you Fionn, we’ll treasure the photos forever!

It would be hard to praise Fionn enough for the work he did on our wedding. We organised the ceremony from abroad so it was very important to us to be able to put the photography in the hands of someone we could trust. Fionn made the whole thing simple, from agreeing to meet us at those awkward times when we were able to get back to Dublin, to scouting sites for potential portraits and forwarding images so that we were able to dream up the landscape of the wedding from a distance. What I like most about his style is that the photos are both arty and quirky, but never lose any of the emotion. And he was just a great person to be around on the day. I think our ease with him shows in the photos too.

When we met Fionn we knew immediately that he was the right photographer for us. His style really appealed to us and we were so happy with our decision. Our pictures are stunning, better than we could have imagined. Fionn really managed to capture even the smallest detail. He is easy going and friendly and never intrusive - we hardly knew he was there at all! I would highly recommend Fionn’s work to anyone and we certainly hope to work with him again in the future.
Lucy & James
Fionn is an amazing photographer who really loves what he does and both me and my husband would highly recommend him. If you are looking for a photographer who is friendly, helpful, creative and reliable and above all takes beautiful, natural pictures then Studio33weddings is definitely for you.

When we were planning our wedding we left the photographer at the end of the budget page because our attitude was, “any guy with a camera will do”. However, after the amount of emotional effort, time, and money, that was spent on wedding preparations, we realised we could not trust the majority of photographers out there to shoot an accurate record of our big day. After much searching, and worrying, we found Fionns site and his style of photography really captured our attention. We particularly liked his “in the moment shots” of guests and the couple enjoying the day, and you could feel the emotion radiating from the pictures. We’re so glad we now have similar shots that allow us to relive the joy we experienced on the day. His landscape shots, both urban and rural, are also very special. We’re so glad we had Fionn there to document our Wedding Day. If we were to plan our wedding again, the photographer would be up at the top of the priority list with the reception venue and the dress. There’s no point in having a first rate wedding, and a second rate photographer.
As with any service how the customer is treated is the #1 reason why most businesses get repeat business. Fionn McCann, of Studio33, from start to finish with our wedding was amazing to work with. Fionn was friendly and honest about everything the whole way through. And the quality of his work shone through so much that my wife and I are delighted to have made the right decision. We will always recommend Fionn for this alone.
However, during one of our early meetings with Fionn there was a mention of the Platinum print at some point that just came up in conversation, filed away and forgotten, or so we thought. After we received our wedding album, to our delight it was everything we wanted and then some; in a discussion with family about enlarging some of the prints we remembered the Platinum print and the thought of creating our first very own family heirloom came about. The obvious choice for this was to go straight to Fionn. Even though in today’s world of comparing prices and services with a click of a button, the service and quality of what we received from Fionn was enough to know that our decision was in good hands.
Upon receipt of the Platinum print again our faith in Fionn was rewarded in spades. The quality and detail of the print is second to none. The process of taking a digital print and extracting that much detail out of it onto the paper is amazing. I am proud to own such a beautiful work of art and have the honour of knowing who made it and the care that was put into making it, being in the photo helps as well. From start to finish this was by far one of the best consumer experiences I have ever had, I would encourage anyone to just meet with Fionn once and you will know what I am talking about.

Fionn is an extremely talented photographer. We are delighted with our wedding photos and they even managed to surpass our expectations, having seen Fionn’s previous work. We have so many stunning pictures to choose from. He has a great eye for capturing natural shots and he captured every second of our day magnificently. The photos are highly unique to us and Fionn tailored the photography entirely to meet our needs. Fionn was extremely easy to work with and we actually forgot that he was there during parts of the day, as he was completely non-intrusive and great fun to work with. He made all of our guests feel at ease also and he organised group photos really easily. He also did a lot of preparatory work before our wedding in order to get our input as to what exactly we wanted. We could not recommend Fionn highly enough and everyone that has seen our photos has been really impressed with the style of photography that is highly artistic and professional. The images really speak for themselves, Fionn’s relaxed style is beautiful and we have photos that we will cherish forever.

We came across Fionn’s website early into our wedding planning and knew right away that we wanted him to photograph our big day. Both of us are photography enthusiasts so we were extremely picky when it came to choosing our photographer. We wanted photos that were unique, fun and would stand the test of time! From our first meeting with Fionn and up until the day itself, he was very helpful and made us feel at ease. He listened to our ideas and even scouted out locations ahead of time so that we didn't waste any time on the day. Fionn arrived earlier than expected on the morning of the wedding so we we didn't feel rushed and got a few extra photos as an added bonus. As other testimonials have stated, Fionn’s approach is unobtrusive and we hardly knew he was there on the day. He is very professional, creative and from start to finish, Fionn makes you feel more like a friend than a client. We are delighted with our photos and can’t wait to get our album which we know Fionn has worked so hard on. Working with Fionn was a great experience and we will not hesitate to recommend him to everyone.

When it came to organising our wedding, there were some things that mattered more than others, and having a good photographer was one of them. What we really wanted was someone who could get the balance right between the quirky, documentary style pictures which we both wanted, without missing out on the family photos which everyone else wanted us to get. With an idea in mind, I set about trawling through websites in a bid to find the perfect photographer. When I came across Fionn’s photos, I was truly impressed and after calling to see if he was available, we arranged to meet at his studio. This was great as it gave us the opportunity to meet with Fionn and discuss the style we wanted for our day. It also allowed us to have a look through some of the albums which he has created and they are without a doubt, the nicest wedding albums I have ever seen. On the day Fionn was a complete pleasure to have around. I was very nervous and I found him to be calming and reassuring at all times and in fact, I started to think of him more as a friend than a photographer as the day went on. Considering how much time you spend with your photographer, my advice would be to make sure to go with someone who you feel comfortable and at ease with as they’ll be there from when you get up in the morning until late into the night. That said, we never felt like Fionn was crowding us and he somehow managed to take loads of photos but always in his discreet and unobtrusive way. A few weeks after our wedding, Fionn got in touch to say he had prepared a short album for us to look at while he continued to work on the other images. We were really looking forward to seeing the photos as the day seemed to go so quickly and there was so much of it that we felt we didn’t get to see. We were absolutely delighted with what we saw and as we had hoped, Fionn captured so many special moments of the day along with the random photos of our family and friends having fun, completely unaware that their photos were being taken. We’ve just received our USB with all the images from our wedding and they are so good, it’s going to be difficult to pick our favourites for the album. We would have no hesitation in recommending Fionn to anyone and if what you are looking for is a brilliant photographer with a great personality, then you have the right person in Fionn.

We picked the longest day of the year for our wedding for a reason: we wanted to enjoy every moment. Fionn has ensured that every moment has been captured so we can enjoy them for a lifetime. From start to finish we knew we were in good hands with Fionn and his second shooter. They put us at ease with their relaxed attitude and professionalism and made getting that ‘perfect wedding picture’ fun. Fionn’s ability to see beauty in everyday surroundings meant that something as simple as a church door became the ideal backdrop. Overall, our photos have captured our personalities and are more than what we could have hoped for. We cannot thank studio33weddings enough for all your hard work and be sure that you will be first on our list of recommendations!
