Full Description
Hello, I'm Daniel, a Cambridgeshire based photographer that works all over the UK and Europe, and I bloomin love my job! I also have a rubbish beard, the laugh of an 'evil genius' (not my words), and a massive passion for photographing awesome people having awesome weddings! Shabba! I AM BASICALLY A PROFESSIONAL NINJA THAT OWNS A CAMERA… and I really don’t believe in taking over your wedding day and turning it into a photoshoot, I just hate the idea of being an old cliche bossy photographer! That is not my style at all, I am there to capture everything as discreetly as possible, meaning more fun for you and your guests, and lots of awesome natural moments captured by me. I will spend the vast majority of your wedding just documenting what’s happening, the guests having a laugh, Mum & Dad sharing a kiss, bridesmaids shedding tears, page boys up to mischief…keeping it real! YO! LET’S TALK: THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO! The very best way to figure out if I’m right for you and your day is for us to talk! I am very happy to meet you in person for a drink and a chat if you live in or around the Peterborough/Huntingdon/Cambridge area, or we can chat over Skype, whatever works best for you. I know many people start their search for a photographer with only a price or a style in mind, and of course you guys loving my work and me being within your budget is massively important, but the real key to us capturing the very best photographs is going to be down our relationship with each other. I am going to be with you and your guests all day, so making sure we get on and are the right fit, is vitally important or it’s going to be a long day for all…yikes!

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Daniel Ackerley
Hello guys! So you're getting married, AWESOME! If you are looking for something relaxed, joyful, fun and slightly alternative to the classic wedding photography we see everywhere, then I might just be the right photographer for you. I'm all about embracing who you are, celebrating the reason why you're marrying, and using my photographs to really tell the story not just of your day, but of who you are as a couple, so give my photographs a look and drop me a message if you like what you see.

Best photographer EVER
We booked Daniel for our wedding based on his photojournalistic style, perfect for us as we're not posey people. Daniel was accommodating, to the extent he said we could do our main photos after we'd eaten and was so easy going. Photos arrived recently and they are everything we wanted 😍

Daniel is a very creative photographer...
Daniel is a very creative photographer and after seeing his work on two other friends/family weddings I knew I wanted him to do our wedding photos. He has spirt and a passion for his work, at our wedding he walked around the grounds and found 'secret' areas that normally understated and we 'posed' in front/around them and he made them beautiful. He is very easy to talk to and a pleasure to have on your special day. He's work is personal to us after not knowing us long he got us right away.

Provided a fantastic service...
Provided a fantastic service, right from First meeting which he made the effort to come to us and through the process of finalising our pictures. Was really approachable. Family still discuss how friendly he was. Photos were outstanding. Caught some magical moments that we will treasure forever. made us feel really relaxed when I'm not keen on my photo being taken and caught us how we behaved naturally.

We loved working with Daniel throughout the whole process. From meeting us for an initial drink to talk through what we wanted - impressing us with his enthusiasm and knowledge, to his friendly, reassuring emails in response to our many questions, to his professionalism and humour on the day. Most importantly, our photos capture the day perfectly - they're beautiful, relaxed and reflect our family and friends brilliantly. He persuaded us to try different styles, and we're so glad that he did
