Full Description
It’s fair to say that wedding photography is a great investment and it’s arguably one of the most important things to consider for your day. Even if, all you want is for your day to be captured naturally with absolutely no interference; Having a professional photographer (in my humble opinion) is the best way to do this. My popular packages are listed here with everything that’s included. If you are looking for a bespoke package, or just want to discuss the available packages more, please do get in touch via the contact form. I have a very relaxed style and I strive to give you the very best. I look for genuine emotion everywhere and my approach to wedding photography is to capture that first and foremost. I'm discreet & professional and, if I do say so myself, I'll beautifully capture and document your day. For each wedding I include a wedding consultation which can be Face-to-face or even over a Skype call, whichever suits you :). If possible, this could be done at your venue to discuss your day and go through your running order. You'll receive up to 500 High-Res Photographs showing the story of your day which will be available online via your own personal gallery; Allowing you to view, share, favourite, download & print as much as you like. I offer Pre-Wedding shoots which are perfect for those who feel like they need a bit of practice in front of the camera before the big day. These start from £250 If you truly want the day capturing as naturally as possible and from different angles, having two photographers is perfect! I also offer this which starts at £120 for half a days coverage and goes up to £250. From £300 you can also have a beautiful fine art album. Made in the U.K. with up to 30 images and a wide range of cover options. If that sounds great then I'd love to hear from you and treat you both to a coffee (no obligation to book me of course) to chat more about your day and see if I'm the right photographer for you!

Wonderful Wedding Photographer
Daniel was an amazing person to have to photograph our wedding. From the engagement shoot where he made us feel very comfortable even though we had never been photographed professionally before, to the wedding day where he made everything as easy and natural as possible, it was all a very positive experience and the photos perfectly capture our day.

Couldn't have asked for better!
Looking back myself and my Husband, Matt were so lucky to have our wedding late February 2020! As cliche as it sounds, we had the best day ever and this was made all the better for having Dan as our photographer. On the day, Dan made sure we weren't stood lining up for hours for photo after photo, instead we had some great friends and family shots at different locations around our venue, laughing along the way. His style was exactly what we wanted and we couldn't be happier with the photo's we have seen so far. We are so excited to see the others! Dan was funny, easy-going and put us both at ease. His laid-back nature does not deter from his professionalism, both prior to and on our day. For anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding, do no hesitate to contact Dan - he's the best!

After been let down last minute by our previous photographer Dan stepped in and saved the day! We can't thank Dan enough for our amazing photographs and for making us both feel so relaxed and comfortable. So many of our wedding guests commented on how professional and lovely Dan and co were.

Happiest day of our lives captured perfectly
Dan and his partner Ruby took wonderful photos of our wedding day this August. The photos they shot captured all the love, laughter and happiness of our wedding day and we shall treasure these photos and memories forever. Could not have asked for a better photographer!

The most magical day!
Dan photographed my sister in laws wedding last year so luckily for me, I knew straight away who I wanted to capture our day! Dan, you were professional, discreet and so much fun and we honestly can’t recommend you highly enough to people. You listened to exactly what we wanted to get from our photos and always replied quickly to any last minute panic questions I had to keep me at ease. We are so glad that we shared our day with you & are so looking forward to seeing the rest of our photos so we can relive it all again! Thank you a million!

Day full of Love and laughter
We met Dan in a wedding fair in Nottingham, he is approachable and very thorough in discussing his services. We knew then that he is gonna be our photographer to our big day. Pre wedding shoot was a bliss, for a couple who's used to just doing selfies, Dan made us comfortable in front of the camera. He managed to capture 'US'.... The big day was no different..,him and his team was amazing! Looking at our wedding photos makes us remember everything that happened, the emotions we felt that day. Every picture taken, we knew exactly what we are laughing about, what song we are dancing to...Having chosen Dan for our wedding is one of the best decisions we made.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Timeless, Modern, Documentary, Relaxed & Bright.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I prise myself in my professionalism but I'm most proud of being able to capture the moments for couples that they may not even see. I'm also proud of the genuine feedback that I get from couples and guests.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Ask for advice from friends and family but still go you own way. A lot of people have stories from their own weddings and some of the things they learnt could be invaluable to you. However a lot may not even apply or it may work out differently to you. It's your day, be assured that it will be amazing because you are there with loved ones around you.

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

Ha! I recently have been asked to have the bridal party run away from a blown up version of their dog! Lots of Photoshop will go into that one :). Night time shots with flash lights are always different and striking. I love doing these if the couple is up for it. I also love going out to adventurous and striking landscape points near by with the couple.

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

I don't agree there is one. It's your day, they should be unique to you. I work very hard to make your photographs work with you in mind. If you have a pre-wedding shoot then you'll get to see this at work. I'm not a fan of certain types of poses. However there are staple photographs of details that I will take but they won't be the same for every wedding.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Umbrellas ;) - Inside shots are all well and good but umbrellas outside are still better for me.

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

I studied photography and university and never looked back :).

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

Ah!! My first I'll never forget of course, Laura & Dan took a gamble with me and we're still in touch which I love. I do have my favourites parts of weddings from each year but to be honest no single wedding is ever the most memorable. I've been to lucky to be involved in so many wonderful days.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I like to meet with every couple before they book. I like to show more of my work and talk about their plans for their day and what they expect from a photographer. This really helps to get a feel about who they are and what their day will involve. Once the date is pencilled in I will send a quote through as discussed which, if accepted, I will ask for a deposit of 25%. There is a contract to sign. It's nothing scary and protects the couple as much as it does me but it is crucial for any professional service. I will send through various emails over the course of the time between the booking and the wedding. I offer up to two consultations and an engagement/pre-shoot as part of all of my packages so these will be arranged via email and booked in. Behind the scenes I make sure that I'm prepared for the day, that I've been to the venue, either on my own or with the couple. Running up to the day I will make sure that I have a run-through of times so I know where to be and when. If I'm travelling over an hour to the venue I'll more than likely have agreed to stay in a near by hotel (nothing fancy required) with the couple. This makes sure there is no danger of being stuck in traffic for the big day. On the day I will be working hard capturing the day and making sure my assistant and I are on hand to help where ever is needed and to direct any group shots within the pre-arranged times. After the wedding I will back up the photographs to two separate locations and then go about organising and editing the photographs from the day. This process usually takes about 8-10 weeks during busy periods but I make every effort to deliver the photographs in a timely manor to the couple. Once the photos are ready, I will send a link through to their private online gallery. If an album has been ordered, this is the point at which the final decisions will be made on size and style and the couple can easily pick the photos through their gallery. This will then be invoiced and once the proof has been signed it will be ordered. From ordering to delivery it's usually about 6 weeks.

Describe how you got into photography.

I love the creative ways couples choose to show their love from friends and families through their table set-ups and decoration. One wedding I was at had a woven map of the world that showcased all the places they'd been to. This also doubled up as a table plan. It was great.
