The photographer is a funny character who obviously loves meeting people and taking photos. He was funny and friendly, his banter helped us relax and we were very happy with the end result. Don't forget to get a copy of the photo in a key ring or magnet too.

Terry O`Brien, the specialist photographer operating this studio has not only taken the picture of every major Irish VIP (politicians, actors, musicians, etc.) but will dress you so that you feel like a VIP yourself --one from the 19th century, probably. His "authentic replicas" of 19th-century apparel will let you and your family step into the "era" character you always... More
