About Caroline Smyth Photography

I was always taking photographs when I was younger. I still vividly remember my turquoise blue 110 Halina camera when I turned 9. The reason I loved that 110 was because I could just drop a film cartridge into it. I never quite mastered 35mm film loading, (quite a few of my dads rolls of film were ruined by me exposing them to light while trying to load them into the camera) which is probably why I never pursued photography any further. I ended up like most people just buying a small point & shoot camera or using my phone's camera.




In September 2012, whilst I was going through some turmoil in my life, someone lent me their camera for a week, to get me out in the fresh air & to help me relax. That was when I truly found myself & fell in love with photography. 

Not only am I mum to two beautiful, intelligent daughters and to a rather hyperactive rescue dog called Charlie. I am a story teller, a painter of light, a woman who captures your story so that it never fades over time. Without you. I would simply be a landscape photographer, which is where I was headed until I started to photograph people...

It’s a feeling that I cannot put into words and I still get it every time I take a photograph of someone. It’s a feeling that I don’t think will ever go away – a feeling I want to last until I am no longer strong enough to hold a camera in my hands.  In June 2016 I opened my first town centre studio, which has allowed me to create beautiful portraits.  This is a milestone that I am extremely proud off and also extremely grateful for, as without the continued support from my family & my amazing customers I could never have achieved this goal.   

One of my biggest achievements to date was when I was crowned Wedding Photographer of the Year 2017 by Mrs2Be.ie.  This award will be held close to my heart for a long time as it was thanks to my lovely 2016 couples reviewing my work & their whole experience. 

I feel extremely privileged being a part of your story and can’t wait to meet you to capture you own special moments.  

“Good photographs are taken not with the camera. Good photographs are taken with Mind, Soul, Eyes, and Imagination where Eyes like a shutter, Mind like a lens, Imagination like an object and Soul like a canvas.”

I've had the pleasure of working alongside Caroline twice now and not only is she incredibly talented at what she does, but she always has the warmest welcome to everyone through the door of her studio. Caroline has a very calming & comforting nature which makes her studio shoots so relaxing & so much fun. Her stories of her experience, as well as advice and tips, as I've been setting up my own business, have been so helpful & I am forever grateful. A lovely woman & I look forward to working alongside her again in the near future

As soon as I stepped through Caroline's door I was met with the warmest welcome ? I was buying a birthday gift voucher for my daughter who had recently had her first baby. As we had missed the newborn stage Caroline gave great advice on the best milestones to use the voucher towards getting the best pics and has kept us included, up to date and well informed on all her promotions.
My daughter used her voucher today towards a Christmas Mini Shoot. Again Caroline was very welcoming and the studio looked amazing. The atmosphere was relaxed throughout the whole session and I cannot wait tosee the photos, of which there were plenty ?
Thank you Caroline for making it such an enjoyable experience for Carla and Olivia ?

amazing photographer. after seeing Caroline's pictures i had to book her and after meeting Caroline for the first time i knew she had to be my photographer. she was so warm and friendly and i knew i would be comfortable with her on my wedding day. so excited to see my pics after getting a sneaky preview. (all my friends couldn't believe how on the ball she was with previews and were amazed at the pics). Caroline has such a calming, friendly nature with her and even when kids etc weren't playing ball she kept everything going and kept everyone calm. i would highly recommend Caroline to everyone. you definitely wont be disappointed.

There simply isn't enough stars to give Caroline. I haven't even recieved my wedding pictures and I don't need to in order to give her 5 stars. My sneak peak pictures were absolutely beautiful. Caroline didn't have alot of scenery to make use of but you would never know as she used what was available and made it look amazing. I had a very busy morning on the day of my wedding with some major incidents some minor and had it not been for Caroline and her assistant becca I don't think I would have made it up the aisle. Her friendly warm manner is something you couldn't pay for and that you would want in someone spending so much time with you on your wedding day. Caroline stepped up and took charge when things went wrong and like a fairy godmother fixed it all. We ran behind schedule and Caroline didn't bat an eyelid she reassured me constantly that all was ok and that she would still get the pictures I wanted and that she did. Even on her pre wedding meeting the week before the wedding we ended up spending 3 hours with Caroline chatting. Caroline becomes a friend minutes after you meet her she will guide you with your photography needs she will also lend her advice to any wedding questions you might have and she also knows alot of vendors to recommend to you. Caroline is more than a photographer she genuinely cares about what she does and who she meets. She will make you feel at ease infront of her camera so effortless you will forget you were ever worried about it in the first place. You couldn't find a better photographer in my opinion if you tried. She works hard at what she does and it shows in all aspects of her business. Cannot reccomend Caroline enough.
