Hello readers! by TaraD

My name is Diana Ascenso (my friends call me Di) and I’m the new member on Tara and Dave’s team.

We’ve only been working together for a few weeks and so far it’s been quite amazing and lots of fun!
Sometimes we work together and sometimes we each work individually which makes for great work / life balance and makes Tara and Dave the best bosses ever!
I moved here from New York where I have been working in the fashion and graphic design industries for the last 20 years. I then qualified in Photography and now I combine all my skills to create one-of-a-kind products for Tara and Dave.
Besides acting as a second shooter when it’s very busy, I also work on designing one-of-a-kind wedding albums for all of you beautiful couples out there.

By now I feel like I have got to know many of you through the amazing wedding photos. I am looking forward to working with more clients in person, as we develop our plans here and that will help me to further personalise your albums.

Until then I will be keeping  you posted with our adventures! There is a very exciting and busy summer ahead!

Fairytale Weddings by TaraD

I often refer to Ballyseede Castle as my second home, (a girl can dream can’t she?)….

There is always such as the incredibly warm welcome received from the moment you step over Mr Higgins or Molly (the irish wolfhounds) who are often found lying on the steps of the castle.

So when you are planning your special day, it would be silly not to consider a castle for the perfect setting!

It is a Photographer’s dream as well as a couples. You can get married on site, in or outside. The gardens and various rooms of the castle mean that you do not need to travel off site for your photo shoot giving you more time to spend with your guests!

The food is AMAZING, the decor is beautiful and it is located only minutes from Tralee town and Kerry airport which makes it super easy for your guests!

Don’t just take our word for it, look at some of the features that have been published of our weddings there….
