“We had our family portrait done with Michael Donnelly photography in early 2022 at his studios. We found the experience very positive. Michael put everyone at their ease very quickly and the photo shoot was itself straightforward, non complicated and quick.

He seemed to understand if anyone in the group was not happy with a position, etc. for certain shots and made sure that everyone was in the right position & at ease to look their best of each photos when taken.

Michael was very knowledgeable with the advice he gave as to which photo size and frame options to go with for all final products we agreed on.

The whole process from the photoshoot to receiving our framed portraits was done very efficiently timewise and the end products were just what my husband and I were hoping for and are now hanging proudly in our home as treasures for our family to have for always.

I can highly recommend Michael Donnelly Photography for his work to produce very high quality family portrait products.”

“Michael Donnelly provides a truly professional and efficient photography service. His pleasant manner puts people at ease in his homely photography studio before photo-shoots. Michael makes all the necessary preparations to ensure the very best outcome for his work.

In our case we had a large family group comprising twenty people, children and adults. Michael made special wooden seats and standing platforms to ensure everyone was clearly visible in the photograph. He endeavours to achieve perfection in satisfying clients requirements.

Framing is also a speciality for Michael, he gives sound advice and our photographs were beautifully framed, bringing the pictures to life. The family portrait has been admired by many people.

Michael follows up diligently on all commitments. All in all, a top class service. We were completely satisfied with Michael’s photography.”

“I cannot recommend Michael highly enough. My little 2 year old was very camera-shy and kept running out of the studio, but Michael had the patience of a saint with him, chatting, playing and making funny faces until he coaxed him into submission! The photos turned out gorgeous and they will be wonderful memories in the future. Thanks a million!”
