Irish Wedding Photographer based in the Algarve, Portugal.
Graduating with a design degree from Dublin’s National College of Art and Design, Garrett Walsh has been involved with the Algarve’s creative scene since 2002. Establishing a successful business he has promoted prestige products, designed and built websites and undertaken numerous photographic assignments. Now recognised as one of the Algarve’s most accomplished wedding photographers, his images have delighted many discerning clients and appeared in publications in Portugal, the UK, Ireland, Holland and Sweden.

Capturing formal group pictures and informal moments, some of Garrett’s most appealing reportage photographs feature the bride and her entourage before the wedding ceremony. He adopts an innovative approach incorporating the ambience of southern Europe, its local architecture, colourful scenery and clear blue skies. Using state of the art equipment and modern techniques he creates original and beautiful images. Of equal importance, his patience, sense of humour and ‘people skills’ gain the cooperation of the wedding guests. Married in 2010 to a Portuguese bride, he is familiar with both sides of the camera and knows how important it is that the photography should run smoothly!

Time is spent in post production enhancing all images before presenting to the couple. A collection of photographs reflecting the various moods and moments are presented in various tones, including sepia and b&w. A private gallery is then published online to be shared amongst family and friends. The bride and groom are provided with the full collection of high resolution photographs in a beautiful custom made USB and box. Superior prints and a fine quality albums presented in a hand-crafted boxes can be ordered from ‘Algarve Wedding Photography’ and posted to any address in the world.

"When we saw Garrett’s portfolio on his website, we immediately saw that he manages to capture the individuality of each single wedding. Garrett was great at suggesting ideas in preparation for the Big Day. On the day, he made us feel very much at ease in front of the camera and blended in well with our guests. Garrett is a true professional. He managed to create something that will forever remind us not only of how we looked on the day, but of how we felt. And that is what wedding photographs are all about. I cannot recommend Garrett Walsh highly enough and we thank him for giving us memories that we will treasure forever." Laura and Moises.

"I don't often write testimonials/reviews but we were so happy that we chose Garrett to photograph our wedding; I can't recommend him highly enough to anyone getting married in the Algarve. His pictures are just beautiful, I think they speak for themselves. But also Garrett is the kind of photographer you want to have around on your wedding day - friendly, professional and he completely put us at ease. I was worried about feeling too posed but most of the day I completely forgot there was a camera there. Nothing was too much trouble, our wedding ran a little later than expected but Garrett was happy to stay longer than we had originally booked so we didn't miss out on our first dance being photographed. Thank you Garrett for giving us so many amazing pictures/memories of our day :)" Emma and Mike.

"We are both so delighted with the whole service that Garrett provided for our wedding in the Algarve. The beauty of his photos speak for themselves but more importantly from our first meeting with Garrett until the day we received our photos we knew that we were dealing with a true professional and that there was one aspect at least of our big day we did not need to worry about! Although discreet and unobtrusive throughout the day, Garrett managed not only to document the events of the day but also captured the characters of each of our guests. We have some wonderful memories we will cherish forever. Thankyou." Jeni and Carlos.

"Garrett is an exceptionally talented photographer. He pairs a masterful command of the technical aspects of photography with the eye of an artist. His sense of composition and use of light are sophisticated, warm, and nuanced with creative details.  He is incredibly easy to work with and very unobtrusive. His cooperative nature allowed us to really feel comfortable with him and the pictures prove that, as Garrett was truly able to capture the essence of the day. We really appreciated that his wife took pictures as well from different angles during the entire day. Garrett amazed us by choosing this breathtaking location and did not hesitate one second to go in the water or climb fences to take the most incredible pictures of our life. We were so surprised when we first saw the pictures, as we didn’t know what to expect. They are astonishing! There are no words to express how thankful we are. Thank you again to you and your wonderful wife!" Alina & Alain.

"We would like to thank you for the best pictures of our wedding we could wish for! You are a very dedicated and passionate photographer with a great sense of details and capturing the right moments. You helped us finding our dream wedding venue near a 'private' beach and advised in locations for our wedding couple shoot. And with great results, our wedding was like a fairy tale! We've had a lot of fun working together and you make your clients feel comfortable. We would recommend you to everyone who is looking for the best (wedding) photographer in Portugal!"

Garrett took time to chat to our guests which in turn made them more relaxed and at ease when taking their pictures. Most of our guests commented on how excellent Garrett was. Our final pictures are fantastic and there was a very quick turnaround from wedding to receiving the finished photos. It was stress free and very smooth working with Garrett.
