Durbin Photography

Rhondda based photographers Durbin Photography are a family run wedding photography team from East Wales. They specialise in classic portraiture and offer various packages at a very reasonable price! Durbin Photography is not just another Wedding Photographer but pride themselves on being YOUR Wedding Photographer and YOUR happiness is their priority! We spoke to the head of the team Mal Durbin and asked about how they started in the world of photography;

“I started taking photographs as a hobby in the early seventies, processing my own black & white photographs in my darkroom”

So tell us a little about your style…

“We take both Traditional and Candid images, that way the couple can have a range of images to choose from.”

From those early morning preparations to dancing the night away, what is the most enjoyable part of photographing a couples big day? 

“The Fun and the Laughter, seeing everyone enjoying themselves is definitely the best part of the wedding!” 

What would you say to couples for them to get the most out of their photographs on their wedding day?

“relax, be natural and enjoy the day, concentrate on what the photographer wants you to do as it's your images that he is trying to capture. I always try to have a laugh and tell a few jokes with the couple, and for us taking the stress out of the day by pre planning with the couple really helps because they know what to expect on the day.”

Do you photograph anything other than weddings in your spare time? 

“I usually take photographs of fast things! Such as jets and motorcycle racing… as a friend called it "A Lust for Thrust”. I also love to capture wildlife photography.”

So fast and furious Mal is keen to make you feel relaxed and informed when it comes to your big day, we asked him a few off the cuff questions and got the ball rolling with the classic describe yourself in three words;

“Happy, Professional and Confident”

If you could be any fictional character who would it be any why? 

“Ironman… I’d save on Airline fares!”

Who is your favourite band or artist? 

“T. Rex & Pink Floyd… with some Frank Sinatra thrown in for good measure.”

If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 items would you want with you? 

“My Camera, Unlimited SD/CF Cards and Batteries!”

And there you have it! Mal and the team at Durbin Photography are prepared to snap away even after being shipwrecked… that’s commitment! If you're looking for photography in East Wales head over to thier profile!
