I’m beyond passionate about creating art that stands out from the crowd and have the knowledge and experience to nail natural, timeless images without any drama nor fuss. I’m trusted by many prestigious wedding venues in the region due to my relaxed, style thats puts people at ease.
Most of the images shown have been taken this year after all you are only as good as your most recent work. As I only undertake around 30 epic adventures and a dozen mini adventures per year, means that I’ve plenty of energy dedicated to fun loving couples just like you who demand the best and are prepared to pay for a first class experience.
Incidentally, I’m a qualified walker, climber and kayaker so if you are an outdoor lover, I’m up for any adventure you have in mind and will produce epic cinematic landscape inspired images with the WOW factor.

We're so glad we found David!
We are so glad we found David Rucker Photography. We could not have been happier with his service.
A month before the wedding we had a long chat over the phone with him (Unfortunately we lived too far to meet), we instantly bonded and knew he was the right Photographer for us! His communication skills throughout the entire process have been fantastic, he took a genuine interest in ourselves and our lives to understand how best to capture photos which would display us at our most natural.
On the big day he eliminated everybody’s nerves almost immediately, was very friendly - all of our guests loved him… and most importantly captured some incredible images which will remind us of our perfect day forever. He made our wedding unique to us, and we can not thank him enough.
If you are looking for a photographer we highly recommend contacting David! For any future events, we will be contacting David first.Sent on 21/07/2021
David Rucker Photography's reply:Thanks you Amandeep & Levi for your kind words. It was an honour meeting you and your amazing families, and who could forget all the emotion of cutting your wedding cake at half time before England lost on pens to Italy, the drama in the photos was epic. Look forwards to meeting up again and I know you were considering a trash the dress anniversary shoot half way up a mountain then plunging into a cool Lake, roll on next year :) xx

The most amazing photographer!
We're so glad we booked David to photograph our wedding.Sent on 31/07/2021
We met with David the day before the wedding (and his chocolate labrador finn met our labrador Fergus!) and were struck by how committed he was to get what we wanted from the photos, taking on board all of our priorities.
On the day itself he proceeded to work tremendously hard to get the best quality shots and was amazing with all our guests learning at least 50 peoples names and capturing the joy on everybody's faces!
He took us for some photos in some lakeside beauty spots, with Fergus coming along for the ride and once again struck the perfect balance of getting spectacular photos without being at all intrusive to anybodys enjoyment of the day. He was even on hand with some expert drone piloting and we can't wait to see some of the shots the drone took as it flew above the lakes!
His hard work continued long into the evening and he brought along the big vinny photo booth which was a massive hit as people got merrier and merrier!
We'd recommend David to anyone who wants incredible photos without any disruption to the flow of their day, from an extremely likeable guy who'll be a hit amongst couples and guests alike!
David Rucker Photography's reply:Sophie & Alex, Don't know where to begin except to say that meeting couples just like you is why I do what I do ! Loved meeting your guests, your dog (yummy Choc Lab like mine :) seeing the new barn at New House Farm and shooting BIG weddings which rock. Going the extra mile is what I strive to do at every weddings as I'm beyond passionate so its lovely to get such a epic review and can't wait t meet up with you next time you are in The Lakes, David x

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!Sent on 12/10/2020
