Best Of 2018-1-21.jpg

If the want to make better documentary photographs at your 2020 weddings, then Doc Day is the conference for you.

There are lots of great wedding photography conferences that help you to pose couples and style photographs in conditions under your control, where the focus is mainly on the couple and their staged photoshoot. Doc Day is different. Doc Day is about the rest of the wedding day. It’s about the unposed unique photographs that tell the real story of the day. It’s about making art from the messy, unpredictable, real-life scenarios where nothing is under your control.

Our panel of international speakers are all documentary photographers with their own unique styles honed over years of perfecting their craft. They will teach you how to break free from the usual set-ups and standard wedding photographs to create photographs that are real and distinctive and unique to you, photographs that set you apart from every other photographer.

Come along to be inspired, to indulge your love of photography, to up-skill your documentary work and to blow off some steam at our Dublin after-party before the 2020 wedding season sucks us all back in…


Doc Day is proud to be run in association with ‘This is Reportage’.

Nothing staged, no poses, just pure, natural images taken by some of the world’s very best photographers.

This is Reportage members will get priority access and discounted ticket prices.

Ian Weldon

“Ian plugs this line about NOT being a wedding photographer. I know what he means, but this clever strap line is deceptive as he is the most real wedding photographer I have ever encountered”

Martin Parr, Magnum Photos

His talk at Doc Day will make you rethink your outlook on your photography.

Jay Doherty

Jay is a national treasure. He’s a Yogi, a skateboarder, a barefooted business man and probably one of the most empathetic photographers you will meet.

If you’ve managed to look through his self-published Wedding Grannies book without shedding a little tear you may have a heart of stone.

Annie & Kevin Kheffache

Annie and Kevin are your hosts for the day. Doc Day is their brain child, a result of two photographers living together spending far too many hours discussing how much they love photography and comparing favourites. “Oooh what if we had a conference all about documentary wedding photography and invited all of those favourites to come speak?”
