Peter Rowen is regarded as one of Irelands leading Photographers.
He has won numerous National and International Awards including a Gold Award in the New York based Graphis Journal of Communication ( possibly the only Irish Photographer ever to do so! ) and was announced Weddingsonline ‘Wedding Photographer of the Year’ in 2009.
With a background in Commercial Photography and a client list that includes Lexus, Sky TV, RTE, Eircom, VHI, Diageo & U2 he has also worked for all of Irelands best magazines including Image, Gloss, The Irish Times and The Sunday Independent.
In 2002 Peter set up ‘Peter Rowen Weddings’ Steering firmly away from traditional Wedding Photography he shoots in a documentary style literally capturing the details and moments of the day as they unfold before him.
‘I’ve never been a fan of traditional Wedding Photography where everything is setup and staged so when I started shooting weddings I decided that I was going to do something different….
Rather than line people up and ask them to smile I decided to try and capture the real smiles, the real emotions and the true atmosphere of the day.
It’s a really nice way to shoot a wedding…No one feels pressured to perform, the couple are free to enjoy their day and the results I hope, speak for themselves’
