My intention is simple; To produce beautiful images that capture the genuine spirit, emotion and joy of your wedding day with a relaxed, uncontrived and unobtrusive approach. I”m a part of the newer breed of documentary photographers. My emphasis largely is focused on natural images and capturing genuine emotions. Laughter, tears, fun, joy and love. Your wedding day will pass so quickly that it’s hard to take it all in. The big moments of the day, the small details and the split second gems that can easily be missed in the craziness of it all – you can rest assured, I will endeavour to capture them all in a vibrant, colourful and carefully composed set of beautiful images. I treat every image as a piece of artwork and an important jigsaw piece in telling the story of your day. My other passion is creating beautiful, romantic and genuine portraits of you as a couple – relaxed, in love and happy but most importantly being yourselves – all in natural soft light and surroundings. You won’t see me to be carrying tons of equipment around and barking instructions at your guests. Just a few group shots for the family album and the rest is “as it happens” I shoot weddings all over the UK & abroad. I’ve been fortunate to experience many types of weddings at a diverse range of venues across the UK. I offer 2 basic packages, my digital collection and my album collection. If however your would like a more bespoke service please don't be afraid to ask.
Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Damien Vickers
Hi, I’m Damien. I’m about heart and soul images of the moment – I love documenting what happens from the perfect moments to the imperfect ones, as they happen, with no bossing about. You want a wedding photographer who makes you feel comfortable, doesn’t make you pose for awkward photos and creates fun images that capture the essence of the day. If this sounds like you, I reckon we’ll get on just fine. Looking forward to hearing from you. Damien

What is your most memorable wedding?
My first ever one as a photographer, I didn't get paid but I was absolutely terrified but loved it at the same time.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, Joyful, Colourful, Emotional, Engaging.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The feedback I get from my couples. Playing such an important role in the biggest day of somebody's life and delivering images that genuinely touch them is extremely rewarding.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Take it one step at a time. Book your venue then look for a photographer and so on.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One made me laugh recently when the bride had several photos framed and displayed in the gents toilets of all the grooms dodgy hairstyles through the years! It's always great if people can throw in a bit of humour!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once I take an enquiry we arrange a phone or Skype call. Once the booking is confirmed we lease around 1 month prior to the wedding and I send over a planning document covering essential information for the day, timings, must have shots etc.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A backlit sunset shot is my "Signature Shot" I guess.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A groom giving his bride a piggyback, it's also one of my favourite ever shots!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Tell it like it is, there's no point in pretending it didn't happen and you'll want to remember your day as it was. Nothing wrong with a few umbrellas or indoor shots!
Describe how you got into photography.
My parents always took terrible family photos and my wife has a really bad memory so photography became and important way for me of documenting life. Once I had bought my first DSLR around 10 years it became a real passion and I dreamed of being able to do it for a living one day.
