About Janet

Janet O'Carroll

Wedding, event, portrait and commercial photographer.
Hi, I’m Jan, I’m a professional photographer based in Dublin 15. My services include: wedding, portrait, event and commercial photography. I am a Licentiate of the Irish Photographic Federation and have several years’ experience capturing all kinds of events and people from weddings and communions to family pets and everything in between.

I feel very lucky to work at something I enjoy so much. I love people and find them so interesting. Each person is a unique individual full of expression. It is for this reason that I love photographing people and capturing that wonderful expression both while alone and surrounded by loved ones and I promise to give you memories to cherish for all time. I have been privileged to have been a part of many special occasions over the past years be it a beautiful new-born shoot, a family portrait session or all the excitement and emotions of a wedding.

I particularly enjoy shooting weddings. I want to give you memories to enjoy for all of time. I want the emotions of your special day to speak through the images I capture. Your photographs are really important to me and I will do anything to catch every unforgettable moment for you. I have recently been up a ladder on the edge of the River Liffey to get a shot of the happy couple and all of their guests while they released 100 red balloons off the millennium bridge.

Thankfully I didn’t fall in and the shot worked out beautifully!

I have two wonderful children who have grown up so fast, so I realise the importance of capturing life’s milestones to have for all time. I also love animals and am human to a cat called Alfie who features in some of my galleries.

Every shoot is important to me from head shots for your LinkedIn profile to a full wedding day.

What more is there to say, I love what I do.

If you have any questions regarding any of the services I provide please don’t hesitate to contact me

Documentary about Janet


Emma Kennedy

Janet was lovely to deal with from the 1st email we sent to phone calls we knew straight away Janet was for us. Janet was brilliant to have around the morning of the wedding, we had so much fun. We loved receiving a few pictures a couple of days after the wedding and we cant wait to see the rest. Would highly recommend Janet.

Jan is so lovely, she made us feel so at ease throughout the day, she knew what pictures we wanted prior to the day and got them all. In the church you would have hardly known she was there and got great shots, I can not recommend her enough and her colleague Barry. We are so glad we choose the album with Jan, as the quality of the prints are flawless.

Janet was extremely professional from the very first time we met her. She is amazing to work with and definitely made us feel at ease on the day. She captured everything we wanted and more and we could not thank her enough. Following on from the wedding, when picking pictures for the our album, she already had a layout already created which was breath-taking. We would 100% recommend her.

Janet is lovely to work with. She really listens to you and she captured some beautiful moments during our day. She has a real fun side and is not fazed by bad weather - she was happy to stand out in the rain to get the perfect shot!

Janet was an absolute pleasure to deal with from enquiry stage right up to collecting our albums and prints. She was great for putting us at ease but yet well able to ensure everything we wanted was done. Although the weather was awful and the castle was closed after our ceremony for photos this actually meant Janet got incredibly unique pictures of us in kilkenny city in the rain. Her editing was incredible really making the rain and colours of the sky pop. Janet was so warm and friendly I enjoyed going to view our edited photos with her and then the prints and albums which are all fabulous, her attention to detail is amazing with beautifully presented USB. If you are considering booking Janet don't hesitate as you won't regret it 🙂 Hope to use Janet to capture more of our family on the future.
