My experience with this man was extremely negative. He was very rude and uncooperative and I will not be returning. I would not recommend this business to anybody. He completely ruined my Bunratty experience.

That's how I have been describing the photo made of my husband at the Bunratty studio. The photographer, Terry, has an engaging personality and makes the experience great fun. He also pays close attention to detail, essential for an excellent outcome.
