About David Rucker Photography

Hello, I'm David, and absolutely love working with passionate, adventurous couples who live life to the full. Living on the edge of The Lakes, I'm known for producing epic cinematic images that stand out from the crowd; after all if you're not living on the edge you're taking up far too much room !

In a nutshell, I've worked with the very best in the world and have won a few awards a long the way, but above all, I've been told that I'm a warm and friendly soul who is fun to work with, and whose images sparkle & speak for themselves.

As no two journeys are ever the same, I'll use all my knowledge and experience to capture "your special vibe" in an inventive and creative way. Don't worry you're in safe hands and you can be confident that all those never to be repeated moments are beautifully photographed as I'll nail them first time.

Believe me when I say "I actually care" about what you think and enjoy finding out your back story and "getting you as a couple" so I'll document your story in a way that when looking back in 10 years time, you'll see plenty of timeless, elegant images with the WOW factor which you will absolutely love!

As 2021 is the year of elopements and small intimate weddings, my unobtrsuive friendly approach helps you be at ease and be yourselves is a key factor in helping you feeling relaxed which is when the real magic occurs as great photography is all about people being themselves & natural, and NOT forced.

Perhaps I should mention that I'm an experienced outdoor guy (with qualifications) meaning that if you are planning a trip to anywhere between Lands End to John O'Groats, then I'd love to hear from you.

My style isn't about applying filters which will date over time (that partly explains why most photography looks the same)it is about creating natural, authentic images, without any awkward poses so if this is your thing, then read the reviews and let's talk as we may be a great fit for each other.

Finally, if you want someone whose not afraid to stand out from the crowd and is beyond passionate, then you may have just come to the right place, so why not request an e-brochure ?

Services Offered

Photography, Videography and Drone Photography which opens up many possibilities. Have a look at my Fotofilm, a fusion of film and stills and tells the story of your wedding through your own words, set to roylaty free music, that you'll want to play over and over again.

Given this new Covid world, I'm working with couples on a variety of budgets, as three hours may just be enough for some people, BUT this way I get to work with couples who are not prepared to compromise on quality.

I also have the most amazing Photobooth, (ideal for larger weddings) and have a variety of beautiful hand made wedding albums, and various other options, so why not get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.

    Lovely photographer and beautiful photographs

    We planned to have a small wedding in the Lake District and our aim was to have a relaxed day and enjoy time with family. David is lovely and fit into our day perfectly. We love the fells and we are delighted with David's scenic photographs. It is going to be difficult to choose between them! David also managed to caputure some wonderful family moments and we will treasure our photographs forever. We would highly recommend!

    Amazing! Don’t look anywhere else!
    David is so passionate about his photography and knows exactly how to deal with The Lake District’s ever changing weather! My wedding was on Halloween, and the weather was a howling gale and pouring rain! I was determined to get some photos outside and David knew the perfect time to do this. My photos were amazing, and reflected us as a couple perfectly.
    We had such great fun on the day with David which I think is so important, nothing is a chore for David to get the perfect picture.
