Full Description
Its All About You! Capture the day I understand that your wedding day is your day, it’s all about you so I acknowledge that and take it into consideration. I’m hired by you so please don’t be afraid to ask me anything. I photograph your special day as it happens, as non-intrusive as possible & capture wonderful moments unfold to eventually be looked back upon with great memories. Each wedding has it’s own unique touch of style and decoration that really makes the day magical. Each of my packages all come with my personal attention which include a pre-wedding meet to discuss thoughts, get to know each other and have a chat. I’m a very relaxed, bubbly friendly person who is easy to speak too! All of which has a huge impact with your family & guests on your special day. "To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."

Professional and super friendly, highly recommend
Dan captured our wedding perfectly. As someone who isn't fully comfortable having my photo taken, he completely put us at ease and we now have some incredible photos to treasure for life. Professional and super friendly, I'd definitely recommend him. Can't thank him enough for the brilliant job he did and all of our guests commented on how seamlessly he fitted into the day.

Each photo is exquisite in its own right
I cannot recommend Dan highly enough! Each photo is exquisite in its own right, and truly captures the joy and happiness we felt during the day. More than just a 'working' photographer, Dan effortlessly mingled with our guests putting everyone at ease, and we all enjoyed his company - indeed he became a guest!! I cannot thank you enough Dan - our guests travelled from all over the world and yet we are all sat in our living rooms where ever we are, reliving every moment, thanks to your photographs! Stunning!

What is your most memorable wedding?

A selfie with the Photographer of course!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

All previous weddings will be in my mind forever... but one that always comes to mind first is Mr & Mrs Peach's. Mr Peach had such a touching father daughter dance it made everyone (including me) have a little weep!

What about your business are you most proud of?

Talk via E-mail/Facebook Page/Phone, Plan a date to meet, Meet up & have a general chat to get to know each other and show portfolio, Booking, Another meet a few weeks before the day to finalize details then on to the big day itself!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

My Grandad was a Wedding Photographer which got me intrigued into taking photo's in general I then spent 2 years every day taking Landscapes of mainly Dorset & shot a few friends / family Weddings then word of mouth spread and now I find myself often fully booked each year in the wedding season!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Photo with all the siblings together (before they get messy)

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Large white umbrellas to still get some unique shots.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Do not rush, take your time to look around and ALWAYS meet your photographer before and request to see an up to date portfolio! Make sure you 'click' together and feel comftorable

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

At an undersea themed wedding the Bride & Groom placed photo's of lots of different sea creatures around and then gave a list to all the children to go around and try to find them all! Brilliant idea to keep the children entertained, even had a few adults doing it!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Relaxed, Fun, In the moment, Reportage, Professional.

Describe how you got into photography.

95% Of bookings are made via word of mouth & I have over 100 5-star reviews and shot over 100 weddings.
