Contact Viv van der Holst

I'm easy-going and down to earth Documentary Wedding Photographer. I believe in delivering a service I would like to receive myself.  
My photos are natural and capture events as they happen throughout the day. My style has a contemporary feel for the modern bride looking for photos that capture her true beauty.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Dublin, Ireland.  
There is a small travel fee if weddings are more than 1-hour drive from Dublin, please enquire for this rate with your location of the wedding.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

Professionally photographing weddings since 2008, with many before for friends and family while working at a portraiture studio.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is mostly documentary/photojournalistic. I aim to blend into the day while couples are left to enjoy the day. If there are any posed shots I do it with naturalism in mind, keeping the couple is my no. 1 priority.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My most popular package is coverage till dinner call with a storybook album, which is roughly €1400. In the last 2 years couples have started booking till First dance.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

They say if you do what you love for a living, you'll never work a day in your life. I can thankfully say I havent "worked" in the last 8 years :)
