A lot of photographers in Derry have the same thing going on. Bernard however, is in a whole league of his own. With his ability to mix a contemporary, modern style with vintage type photos, he created the perfect wedding photographs for me, photographs I could only ever have dreamed of. He has such a great eye for detail and is so particular, not stopping until he has the perfect shot. He is an absolute gentleman and such a professional, with the patience of a saint might I add, needed for any bride on her big day. I would highly recommend Bernard ward photography. My first choice for any professional photos. Such a talent. Thanks again for my dream photos Bernard. They are just perfect. Michelle and Ali

I am wedding photographer from Derry in Northern Ireland. I am also a portrait photographer and I am available for first communions, family events and corporate head shots. I will tell your story and capture your wedding day or family event in the most natural, fun and relaxed way.
I have a unique down to earth approach to wedding photography and photography in general making sure to blend in to the crowd and cause as little disruption to the big day as possible. I believe the best photographers will put people at ease and make people relaxed allowing for much more natural and candid photography. So much work has gone in to your wedding day and I will let the day unfold naturally and I am here to tell that story.  There are obvious times when the couple, bridal party and guests will receive direction from me but this will all be done in a friendly and fun way. There are lots of photographers in Derry... so thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my photography portfolio. Hopefully you like what you see.
