Our photos are magical! Thank you for capturing everything so wonderfully in such a unique way. We are totally blown away. We knew we had to have you as our photographer and these photographs just show we were so right. They are truly beautiful. You have captured the spirit of our wedding. Our family and friends all loved having you around, you were very much a part of our wedding. Such a pleasure to hang out with and always smiling & snapping away! Thank you Pete for stunning photographs we will enjoy for the rest of our lives.


Peter was an absolute pleasure to have photograph my wedding. He worked so hard all day and captured all the special moments brilliantly. I couldn't believe it when I saw the photographs as I never even noticed him taking any of them! Peter is so professional, I couldn't recommend him highly enough. Gar and I are thrilled with the pictures that we'll have forever!

Jeanie & Gar - The Merrion Hotel.

Oh my God Peter, They are amazing!!!!! I searched high and low for a photographer and loved your profile, and you did it! You caught the memories of the most magical day of our lives. I'll be honest in saying I was a little worried as I hadn't a clue of what pictures you took - I didn't even notice you taking those shots - amazing! A true talent!!!! Thank you so much!

Sarah & Gerry - Lough Rynn.

If you are looking for something very special and memorable from your big day, we cannot recommend Peter enough. On the day he captured so many beautiful, emotional and funny moments that we now have forever. It is just a gorgeous illustration of our day. We would also like to add that Peter was such a pleasure to have around, from the moment he arrived to the very last shot of the day, it was all very relaxed and felt so natural. And for much of the day, we didn't even notice he was there! We really are so happy we chose Peter for our wedding.

Vanessa & Pat - The Lodge at Ashford Castle.

Peter is quite obviously a very talented photographer, however for our wedding, he played a much more important role than that. Through his photos he managed to capture our feelings throughout the day, the special moments and details, and even describe our personalities and those of our family's and our guests. Quite honestly, he captured the magic of the wedding and told it in a perfect visual story. Aside from that, himself and Natalia were an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you Pete, we will enjoy these for the rest of our lives!

Zoe & Gary - Borris House.

Peter is exactly the kind of photographer you want for your wedding - cool, calm and above all excellent at what he does. What attracted me to his work was his style and his eye for detail. I am amazed at how he caught those quiet moments when we didn't even know he was there - that is true talent. Our guests have seen the photos and thought they were outstanding. That is the reaction you want when people see your photos - an instant impact. With your wedding photos, you cannot compromise because they are memories you will hold forever. It really is a big decision to make. With Peter you get more than fantastic photos, you get a guarantee before he takes a picture that they are going to be fabulous - and they were. Peter is that good I asked him if he could take photos for other occasions now that my wedding is over! Its for those reasons and many more that Peter definitely deserves to be Wedding Photographer of the Year! 

Emma & Dylan - Lough Rynn.

We absolutely LOVE the photos!!! They are just beautiful and thank you so so much for your extra shots!!!! Blown away!!!!!!

Cliona & Alan - Saint Helens Hotel.

Well what can I say..I cannot recommend Pete highly enough. He has an air of calm about him. He is a person who has great warmth to him and is both professional and fun and I have to say we were all blown away by the photos. For me, I'm not one who likes to get her photos taken but he put us both at such ease and did the job without us realising he was snapping away. His pictures capture the story of the day and for us, we genuinely could not of been happier with the photos, which we will treasure forever! Thanks Pete for the beautiful job you’ve done and for helping us to enjoy our day.

Kate & Stephen - Lough Rynn.

Having modelled for the past twenty years, both in Ireland and abroad, I have worked with my fair share of photographers but with my hand on my heart I can say that I couldn't have chosen a better photographer to capture all those special moments on our wedding day.. Peter has such a beautiful style to his work, nothing is contrived or staged. It is exactly what every bride wants. With his documentary style, Peter manages to capture rare moments effortlessly, without, at times you even noticing he is there. Peter has such an easy way about him. We have two small children but Peters sweet and gentle way of working made it very easy for everyone to relax. From the first meeting with Peter to the final collection of the timeless, stylish album we knew we had made the right choice. Every shot is a piece of art, every shot is worth every penny, every shot is a moment to cherish... From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you …

Natasha & Dave - Bellinter House.

Pete, thank you so much for all your hard work and calming influence at our wedding. You were discreetness personified. On receiving the proofs we were delighted to see you had caught us, our friends and our families off guard and unaware of your presence - exactly what we had asked for. Our only real problem now is trying to choose which photos we want for the album!

Niamh & Kevin - Dylan Hotel.

Pete was recommended to us through a friend and as soon as we saw a few of his photos we knew he was going to be perfect. Our wedding was in Italy and Pete flew over with his assistant two days before the wedding to get a look at the area and where he'd be working. He was such a calming influence on the preparations, he was so relaxed and nothing was a problem. On the day he was absolutely magnificent. He was like no other photographer we have ever seen; we didn't even know he was taking photos most of the time ( exactly what we'd hoped for ). The family photos only took 30 minutes and we were free to entertain our guests for the rest of the evening. Within a week of returning to Ireland we received a USB with the best 500 shots from our wedding. The quality of his work was amazing...anyone who has seen the photos cannot believe how good they are. Our wedding photos are such an amazing record of one of the best day of our lives...Thank you so much Pete!

Deirdre & Damien.

We booked Pete based upon a recommendation from another photographer. We also checked his website and discovered that we actually knew one of his clients. Without hesitation we made contact and the recommendation we received further endorsed Pete's skills as a photographer. Wedding photographs are the only tangible reminder of a great occasion, not just for the bride and groom but for family and friends also. Its only now that we realise and appreciate the true importance of having the right photographer. From the booking process to receiving the end product, the whole thing was completely stress free. We live in the USA, and got married in Ireland and so it was only on our wedding day that we actually met Pete for the first time. Straight away we felt like that we had known him for years and that he genuinely had our interests at heart. He calmly and patiently worked with us and our guests in an unobtrusive but effective manner and managed to work to our brief, despite our large group numbers, missing family members and time limitations. His creativity is evident in the relaxed shots taken of our guests and the more formal family pictures. His easy friendly personality, co-operative attitude and dedication to his trade are evident and we certainly would have no hesitation in using his services again or indeed recommending him. We wish Peter continued success and for anyone who takes the leap of faith to use his services, its the best move that you can make!

Breda & Robert - The Morgan Hotel.

Peter was extremely helpful & accommodating from the very start. He was very open to tailoring his service around what we wanted and his informal photographic style was exactly what we were looking for. On the day of our wedding the temperature outside was -12 with 2 feet of snow, but Pete still managed to make us feel relaxed and captured all the special moments from our day. We absolutely love our photos & we have no hesitation in strongly recommending him!

Ailbhe & Richie - Barberstown Castle.

We are delighted with both our pictures and our wedding album from Pete. From our first meeting it was clear that his easy going yet professional nature and natural unstaged photographs were exactly what we were looking for in order to capture our wedding day. On the day Pete was unobtrusive and put everyone at ease. All of the group photographs were taken in a short space of time which ensured we did not miss out on time mingling with all of our guests and soaking up the atmosphere. This was very important to us having been at other weddings where the bridal party are not seen from the end of the service until the dinner therefore missing out on an important part of their day! The photographs are all beautiful, so much so that the task of choosing those for the album was very difficult! We are delighted with the finished album, it is understated, elegant and timeless; most of all it is a perfect record of the best day of our lives! We would definitely recommend Pete to anyone who is looking for unstaged and natural photographs of their wedding day.

Claire & Keith - The Lodge at Ashford Castle.

On the day of our wedding, Peter's photographic style brought a sense of calm and relaxation to our family, and to all of our guests. His natural, unobtrusive style allowed him to capture all of us when we were at our best. The sense of fun that we felt on the day was clearly captured in his pictures, and every time we look at them we feel like we are reliving it all over again. There were so many shots that we loved but the most impressive was how the individual personalities of our families and guests were captured at moments when they weren't even aware of it. We wanted a photographer who would capture amazing shots of the people we love most, and who would capture the spirit and feel of the day. Peter exceeded our highest expectations, and we are very grateful to him for it.’

Pamela & Cameron - Garden Wedding, County Meath.

We booked Pete for our wedding based on his journalistic style approach to photography. We didn't want typical posed pictures and really liked the images we saw in Pete's portfolio. We're so happy we chose Pete, our photos are amazing, he managed to capture so many great moments throughout the day, which otherwise we would never have seen. We wanted some family photos as well and everybody commented about how professional he was and how he put them at ease when taking the photos. I love our wedding photos, we're so thankful to Pete and we highly recommend him, he's a true professional and a very talented photographer.

Claire & Conor - The Lodge at Ashford Castle.

Not only is Peter a really talented and creative photographer but he's also a pleasure to work with and a real gent! He made us feel so relaxed on our wedding day. We love our photos, they are amazing! Peter captured all the special, happy and emotional moments in such a beautiful way! We all got so emotional looking at the images again. Peter's journalistic and natural style is quite unique - he focuses on real emotions and people which is exactly what we were looking for. A huge thank you from both of us - we highly recommend Peter!

Sophie & Ken - Druids Glen.

Louise and I wanted a ‘birds eye view’ of our wedding day. The staged photography we had seen previously wasn’t for us so it was a perfect match when we saw Pete’s portfolio. A photographic documentary of our wedding day is the best way to describe what we ended up with and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. Pete was friendly, unobtrusive and captured our day far more beautifully than we could have ever hoped. We would have no problem in recommending him to anyone looking for something a little bit different from their wedding photographs.

Louise & Ian - The Shelbourne Hotel.

We cannot recommend Peter enough-he is courteous, kind and just fitted into our day seamlessly. Neither of us are fans of posing for photos and despite being put at our ease when we initially spoke to Peter on the phone, we were nervous in the lead up to the day about being 'on stage' . We should not have worried. Peter's photographic style is informal, natural and unstaged. The documentary nature of his work resulted in some fantastic photos of our guests also, which was very important to us and I don't think any of them even knew they were being photographed! He has a talent for picking out lovely moments, ones that we would have missed were it not for him being there. He has a wonderful eye and you will not regret choosing him as your photographer. Thanks Peter for all you work and best wishes for the future.

Leah & Paddy - Tankardstown House.

Absolutely fantastic photographer. We wanted someone unobtrusive and undemanding yet professional for our wedding and Peter took an outstanding selection of photos. We love them. Peter went above and beyond for our wedding, travelling from Dublin to Cork in the worst snow in 75 years to photograph our wedding, and the results were incredible. Cannot rate him highly enough!

Joan & Alan - Castlemartyr Estate.

Peter was absolutely spot on. On every level Peter was exactly what we wanted. His technical skills are fantastic..the portraits, composition, lighting, atmosphere were all top notch. And all this while remaining unobtrusive and executing the prefect "fly-on-the wall" style. He captured the very essence of our wedding and we will treasure the photos. Super nice guy too. If you are looking for a skilled, discreet photography to provide those magical memories, we couldn't recommend him more highly.

Maya & Fergus - Luttrellstown Castle.

Peter is a true professional, a pleasure to work with. He is extremely talented, we are absolutely thrilled with our wedding photographs! He has a non-invasive style, which resulted in the capturing of completely natural, candid moments. Precious memories for us now! Thank you Peter.

Michelle & Brian - Mount Falcon Estate.

Couldn't have asked for anything more. From the minute we met Peter ( on our wedding day ) we were totally at ease, most of the time not even knowing he was there. The photos he captured were nothing short of amazing. We love them more every time we look at them. So many parts of the day were captured that the bride and groom may not get to see on the day and still he managed to get all our 'must have pictures'. All of the 'posed photos' were so appropriately timed, meaning we didn't miss out on all the important time with our guests. Peter is truly talented, professional and such a pleasure to be around. Would highly recommend him to anyone on the hunt for an exceptional photographer.

Emma & Kevin - Moyvalley Estate.

What a BRILLIANT wedding photographer Peter is. My wife and I got married back in August of this year and Peters photos really captured the whole day perfectly. He was great with the kids and also with the older generation who would normally have the patience to stand around for photos. His candid photos really captured a lot of the special hidden moments throughout the day. All of his shots have a lovely finish to them and he was so subtle when he was taking any photos we barely even noticed him being there. He was one of our our most expensive costs when doing our budget but was absolutely worth every penny. Couldn't recommend highly enough. If your lucky enough to have him available...book him. You wont regret it !

Jenn & Eoin - Ballybeg House.

When we received our wedding photos of our special day we were totally blown away. Pete is a truly talented photographer and he managed to capture all the little magical moments so beautifully. He is so easy to work with, cool calm and very unobtrusive, he really listened to what we wanted and he just blends and mixed in so well among the bridal party and the guests.We cannot thank him enough for giving us amazing memories to last our lifetime.

Áine & Shane - Virginia Lodge.

From start to finish, Pete was a pleasure to deal with. He was professional and efficient beforehand, he was relaxed, friendly and unobtrusive on the day, and he was quick to get back to us with our photos after the big day. We are delighted with the final photos - he really captured the day, the ceremony, the venue and the guests, as well as stunning family and group portraits. Highly recommended.

Kieran & Rosaleen - Cliff at Lyons.

We couldn't be happier with the results and the great customer service from Peter. Organising a wedding from Australia is quite challenging but Peter was always available for any advice or query via Skype, phone or email. We are thrilled with the amazing photographs we received that managed to unobtrusively capture all the emotion and highlights of our special day. Peter is an extremely talented photographer who manages to be everywhere yet go totally unnoticed, could not recommend him highly enough.

Michelle & David - Ballymagarvey Village.

We worked with Peter for our wedding back in July in Kenmare Ireland and could not have made a better decision! His work is ABSOLUTELY amazing, so beautiful...he captured the day perfectly. My parents, who recently got into photography ( and often hard to please ) even had nothing but praise for him and his work. We love his style of bringing a mix of essential portraits and of capturing the candid moments of our guests and ourselves, which made it even more special as he helped show us moments we didn't all see. Additionally, we planned our wedding from the US, so really did not want to have too many back and forths. When we met Peter, we instantly felt his professionalism and knew our style would match. It made totally trusting him with our big day all the easier. The day itself was an absolute blur for us but Peter took charge of making sure Conor and I got our own photos taken and balancing with other guests' requests. Now seeing the photos, we're super thankful! We've also heard nightmares about trying to get photos after the wedding from the photographer. With Peter, it was super easy. He's even working with us how to get the whole lot of them to the US for us! Anyway, HIGHLY recommend. Thanks Peter!!

Shan & Conor - Dromquinna Manor.

Peter was the photographer at our wedding 3rd of September 2016. It was a really lovely experience having him with us on the day. He was efficient and very personable with many guests positively commenting on his professionalism and manner. The results are amazing. We are delighted with the range and amount of guests captured candidly. Peter has an incredible eye for detail and the moments he captures through out the day are so special. He captured the best of everyone, with amazing joy and laughter all day. The choice of colour vs black and white and the finishing of the photo's exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Peter to anyone looking for exceptional photography of their special day. I’ve seen couples have huge regrets after booking the wrong photographer. After doing my research and seeing the results, this is not a regret we ever have to worry about. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent.

Carolyn & Matthijs - Luttrellstown Castle.

Simply fantastic. Professional, accommodating, extremely good natured with everyone and well able to roll with the punches ( said punches included inclement weather, delays in schedule and some diva requests! ). Peter was an oasis of calm on a pretty hectic day and I cannot speak highly enough of the service - before, during and after. We highly recommend Peter Rowen Photography and our advice, for what it's worth, is to leave him to follow his own instincts on shots - the photographs were absolutely stunning!!

Greg & Susan - Clonabreany House.

Peter was excellent from start to finish. Very professional and captured the vibe of not only our August wedding but also our rehearsal dinner the evening before. He has a very calming way of working not only with adults but also the the children. He has an excellent eye for what works best. We were thrilled when we saw the artistic and beautiful photos. Couldn't be happier with the result. We also got them in a very timely manner.

Jacqueline & Christos - Luttrellstown Castle.

The professionalism and service we have received from Pete for our wedding has been nothing short of exceptional. The wedding photos are amazing and we are so happy with them. Your photography style had everyone relaxed on the day and our photos look so natural and real. We'd like to express our gratitude and appreciation.

Lisanne & Colm - Clayton Hotel.

Justin and I would have no hesitation in recommending Pete. I found him to be extremely professional, helpful and also very kind on the day. He was able to strike a good balance of being in control but also allowing the day to blossom naturally. He was able to capture such precious moments that I will truly treasure forever more. The photos were far beyond my expectations! If you want someone reliable, subtle and very talented, Pete's the photographer for you!

Marie-Clare & Justin - Castlemartyr Estate.

We were truly blessed to have found you Pete. You were extremely professional but more importantly you made both our families feel relaxed. Not once through the day did we feel we had a camera in our face and yet your pictures captured the very essence of our day: warmth, love, family, friends and fun. It was an absolute joy to welcome you into our home and to have you as part of our special day. As we live abroad and had to organise our wedding from abroad, you were an absolute pleasure to speak with and work with and honestly made it so easy for us. Thank you!!

Bridget & Gavan - Ballyvolane House.

"We were fortunate enough to have Peter for our wedding in Inisbofin. We were  absolutely thrilled with our photos- the whole weekend was captured beautifully. There were so many amazing shots and our photos were like a story of our wedding- exactly what we wanted. He is an amazing photographer- so professional and you hardly knew he was there! "

Jen & John - Inisbofin Hotel.

Thank you so much Peter, we couldn't have wished for better photos. Your creativity and awareness captured exactly the tone we wanted and remembered. You never encroached on the occasion and blended in perfectly. The quality of the finished compilation is a credit to you. We will truly treasure these photos and let them trigger authentic memories forever. 

Pete & Jen - Marlfield House.

We never actually got to meet you Peter prior to our big day, mainly due to our own hectic schedules and having a baby six months prior to our wedding. Despite this I had no reservations given the high esteem, all who had encountered your professionalism were happy to report. I was not disappointed, from the moment I met you at my house the morning of the wedding you were relaxed, professional, warm and non intrusive..for the most part I actually forgot you were in the house when we getting ready! This was mainly because you blended in so well to the atmosphere in the home and didn't make your presence obvious. I particularly appreciated this aspect of your work as I'm not overly keen on getting my picture taken. Your approach was the same throughout the rest of our day, easy, informal and subtle..this put Ronan and I very much at ease and allowed us to really enjoy our day. The pictures you took were a superb reflection of the day, they were natural, fun and captured the most precious moments without appearing too posed. I would highly recommend you to anyone, many thanks for all the wonderful memories.

Mairead & Ronan - The Heritage Hotel.

We booked Peter as our wedding photographer after seeing his shots from a friends wedding. We were immediately impressed with his photographic style. Peter was amazing on the day of the wedding very calm and really knows what he is doing. He is very professional and worked very hard for us to ensure we got the best shots on the day. We have such amazing natural photos that captured the day that we will treasure forever. We could not have chosen a better photographer. Peter is the very best out there and we feel very lucky that he was the photographer for our special day!

Fiona & Eddie - The Lodge at Ashford Castle.

We loved the look and feel of Pete’s portfolio when we met him originally. We had high hopes and we were not disappointed, Pete’s photography is like a mixed bag of creative styles, which perfectly captured all the excitement, fun and emotion of our big day. He switches from black & white to colour with an excellent eye, really capturing the personalities of our friends and family. Pete is a professional and friendly guy, who photographs everything subtly behind the scenes but also well able to ’muster up the troops’ for the large group shots! Not only was the photography excellent but the album was presented innovatively and stylishly, something that we will treasure forever.

Rachel & Stephen - Wineport.

Pete, thank you so much for all your hard work and calming influence at our wedding. You were discreetness personified. On receiving the proofs we were delighted to see you had caught us, our friends and our families off guard and unaware of your presence - exactly what we had asked for. Our only real problem now is trying to choose which photos we want for the album!

Niamh & Kevin - Dylan Hotel.

Not only is Pete an incredible photographer, but he was an absolute pleasure to work with on our wedding day. Even though we're from California and never met Pete until the day of, it only took a couple of clicks through his portfolio to know that he was the perfect photographer for us. He was prompt, fun to be around, worked well with our videographer, and did and amazing job of quietly documenting our special day from the sideline. Our pictures are so fabulous that more than one person has suggested submitting them to a wedding magazine!

Danielle & Evan - Waterford Castle.

Peter did a wonderful job of capturing our wedding day. He is very relaxed and worked quietly behind the scenes capturing people's raw emotion. He has a beautiful documentary style; we were so happy with the images - looking through them brought us right back! Pete took the time to meet us in advance of the wedding day to go through how everything would work. Highly recommended!

Lia & Mark - Luttrellstown Castle.

Peter was the photographer for our wedding this July, and we were very happy with his work. He was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Peter listened to what we were looking for and understood our budget…he didn’t push us to buy expensive albums etc. On the day itself he was great, really putting us and the rest of the wedding party at ease. The shots he took were brilliant, especially the unposed ones, and he ended up giving us a lot more pictures than we’d originally agreed for a small extra fee. Peter’s a nice guy, and we’d have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone planning a wedding.

Tarryn & Conal - Marlfield House.

Where do we begin, we cannot thank you enough for the incredible photographs that you took of our wedding day. We were both so completely blown away by them they are just stunning, you managed to capture every little detail our day from start to finish. The photographs exceeded our expectations, we are just so in love with them, they are all just perfect. We will treasure the photographs for the rest of our lives. Your attention to detail is second to none, we both absolutely adored working with you on the day and knew from our initial meeting that you were going to provide us with the most spectacular photographs, you are a truly gifted person and have such a talent, we could not have asked for more. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much and we are both so thrilled that we chose you to capture our wedding day.

Dan & Jilly - Cliff at Lyons Estate.

Peter was the most perfect wedding photographer. We are delighted with our beautiful pictures. His rare talent captures the mood and feeling and our wedding photos will always transport us back to our very special day! His discrete, professional and warm nature is spot on for when nerves and emotions might be running high! We cannot recommend Peter more highly, thank-you so much again..

Alison & Alan - The Haddington Hotel.

We found Pete’s work advertised in a magazine and after looking at his website, decided he was definitely worth meeting. On meeting we had no doubts whatsoever, his easy-going warm & friendly personality, coupled with his fantastic photographic talent was enough for us to book immediately.  Pete has an uncanny ability to take more than a photograph, he captures the emotion, the quirky details, the feelings, the sounds, the chat, the laughter but most importantly he captures the memory, the very essence of the moment. He manages to do this with what appears to be no effort, his unobtrusive documentary style means those moments are captured without anyone barely noticing. With Pete’s portfolio & testimonials we were expecting great photos, but we were completely blown away with how wonderful they are, we cannot stop looking at them. If you’re considering him for your wedding, do it, you will not be disappointed!

Julia & Roy - Cliff at Lyons Estate.

Peter, we absolutely love our wedding album. It captures the story of our wedding day perfectly. You were professional from initial contact through to receiving the wedding album. You are so calm and blended right in amongst our guests to the point that they didn't even realise you were taking photos. This means we have natural, relaxed photos of our closest friends and family which we will cherish forever. Thank you!
