Hello I'm David a Cornwall based Wedding Photographer and I have a wealth of experience shooting award winning Landscape and Wedding Photography. I love working with natural light, capturing Weddings in a unique and unobstrusive way. I was recently listed amongst the top 11 wedding photographers in the UK by the wedding planning site Poptop weddings in 2017 following up on my top 30 listing in the Hen Heaven Awards in 2016 and now again in 2018 My Approach to Wedding Photography My approach is relaxed and non intrusive. I produce contemporary wedding images while documenting all the important moments of the day. Depending on your requirements, I can follow a formal or more informal approach, although most people usually want a combination of the two: most of the traditional photos and a casual documentation of the day. I try to make group shots as informal as I can if you would like to see some of the ways we can have fun with these have a look at my group shots page here. I will include images that the Bride and Groom don't usually see, guests arriving at the venue and candid portraits just to complete the coverage of the day. I guarantee to take at least 300 photographs but should I take more (I'm averaging about 700-900 images from a full day package), they are all yours to keep, share and print. I am based in Cornwall, but I will travel to all locations within Devon and Cornwall as part of the package price. I can travel throughout the UK and the world if required but I would have to charge travel and accommodation costs on top of the Package prices, call me for more details.

Cornwall and Devon has some beautiful scenary and I love to include it as part of your wedding day I don't have a set style but I do like to capture natural looking shots, some people call this reportage, but it is your day and I will tailor my style and capture the day the way you would like it. I won't put you into rather fake looking poses or ask you to start jumping in the air or leap frogging people or swan diving into a pile of best men and ushers, unless you want to of course!
