What we're all about

I'm a​ ​professional wedding photographer with 20 years experience, offering a relaxed contemporary style with affordable pricing. An early adopter of the more relaxed documentary wedding photography, capturing the essence of the day, with guests looking relaxed, happy and mostly unposed. Couples often say this approach helped them feel totally at ease being center of attention for the day.

Throughout the day I'll be recording all the events as the day unfolds, plus those important small details that made the day uniquely yours. This is photo journalism documenting the whole day in a storybook fashion. You still need those important formal group shots​, ​along with some creative​ ​and​ ​more casual​ ​group portraiture. They'll be time too, normally shortly after the ceremony, when we can all catch our breath and have fun together away from your guests. The style of these shots would have been discussed in advance but there's always room for spontaneity... More often than not, the very best shots are unplanned.

I've always loved working with black & white photos and I'm one of only a handful of wedding photographers who provides you with ​an extra​​​ selection of your images in timeless monochrome, essential for those candid shots, plus some quirky vintage Polaroid effects.

I love being a​ ​wedding photographer, it must be one of the best job​s​ ​in the world.​ ​This is all I have done for the last 20 years and I treasure every moment, from the initial consultation, discussing plans, through to capturing and creating special memories through my photography.

If you want to know​ ​more about what I do or have any questions,​ ​please ​do ​get in touch... I would love to be involved in your special day - db

What Our Couples Say

Jo & Jonathan

Hi David

We just wanted to thank you so much for all work and effort you put into our wedding photos, both on the day and since. We just cannot stop looking at them, they are fantastic. We have had many comments from friends and relatives about how they have really captured the essence of the day perfectly.

You really put us at ease and this shows through in the photographs, a truly great record of the day.

Thank you

Gennie & Dan

Dearest David

A huge thank you to you for your wonderful photography! We love the albums and all the photos, we still find ourselves flipping through them on a daily basis.

We had such a fantastic day and it is lovely to look back and remember.

We will not hesitate in recommending you to any of our friends.

Thank you again.

Hayley & Duncan

Dear David

We would like to extend our thanks to you once more, for providing a fantastic service on our wedding day. You made us feel so at ease with the camera, and you have provided us with some fantastic photos to treasure for years to come.

We will be recommending you to friends and family: hopefully we may see you at another wedding in the future.

Best Wishes

FAQ

How do you supply finished images?

My couples usually receive around 400-600 images on usb format. I have recently acquired some beautiful wooden presentation boxes which clients absolutely love. All your files will be at the highest quality and you receive full copyright permission allowing you to print, copy and distribute your images to family and friends, totally without restriction. Along with all your files in colour, I supply an extra folder with a nice selection in b&w plus some retro 'polaroid' type effects.

How long before we receive the pictures after the wedding?

Your Online Gallery would usually be ready in 7-10 days. All your images are put onto usb which will be ready to post out shortly after, with most couples having this waiting for them on return from honeymoon.

What if you are sick on the day?

This is an important question some couples forget to ask. I'm happy to say... I have photographed hundreds of weddings over the last 20 years or so and never been unable to attend a single one. I guess one day something will happen, but as long as I'm alive I would always arrange another competent photographer to cover your wedding or offer a full refund if you preferred. For peace of mind I have both Personal Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance. I also have back-up equipment should this be needed.

Do you supply wedding albums?

Mostly Coffee Table Books with pages that look and feel like a real book. There are also some nice contemporary albums available from my suppliers, the choice is yours. There are also smaller replica versions, idea for parents and guests available at very reasonable prices

Are you a professional or part-time wedding photographer and do you employ other photographers?

I am a full-time professional wedding photographer and would never ask anyone else to cover your wedding. It really does annoy me when I here of other photographers using part-timers when a couple obviously thought they were booking the real deal. I am good friends with a couple of other top photographers which I sometimes recommend when not available, these guys are also a great back-up should the need every arise.

Would we meet you prior our wedding?

Yes most definitely. I always meet my couples 4-6 weeks before their wedding. This would usually be at your venue so I can have a good look around, even if it's a venue I'm particularly familiar with. This is a great way to get to know each other, talk about your photography options and discuss all the timings etc for the day.

What is your preferred style/approach for capturing our special day?

I was an early adopter of the more relaxed documentary style of wedding photography, capturing the essence of the day, with guests looking relaxed, happy and mostly unposed. Clients often say my relaxed approach made them feel totally at ease being center of attention for the day.
