Absolutely perfect wedding photographer

We didn鈥檛 want a very formal approach to our wedding photographs, as our wedding was deviating from the traditional format. Dash and his team fully embraced this, tailoring their suggestions and approach to match our day from start to finish. Dash went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable and were happy throughout, and we felt completely at ease, despite being two people not particularly comfortable in front of a camera. Many of our guests also commented on the approach to photography, they were impressed with the speed and openness to capture ad hoc photos throughout the day.

The drone shots helped capture the amazing location we had for the day, and Dash embraced my desire to have photos taken whilst stood in a river. We can鈥檛 recommend Dash highly enough.

Booking him for your wedding now!

From the first contact with Dash he was friendly and helpful. Very responsive and open to different suggestions for your day. He went out of his way to put us at ease and having our photos on the day never seems like a chore because Dash and his assistant Steve made it all so fun. When we got our photos back (super quickly too I will add) we were amazed at how many photos we had that we hadn鈥檛 noticed being taken, oh and the drone footage was superb! All in all I would highly recommend Dash for your occasion :)

Exellent Day

Dash and his team were at our wedding all day long ,and done a fantastic job of our photos. They made us feel at ease and a lot of the time we didn;t know when they were taking photographs (apart from the group photos) . so this made for some really natural photos . An exellent day we had with Dash and the team, and we could'nt be happier with the results. Thank you Dash.

So friendly and captured the heart of the day

Dash and his daughter Katie are both so lovely! They were both very attentive and friendly towards both the bridal and groom party. Dash would inform me what ideas and photos he wanted to get, all amazing, and he would talk everyone through each set up (even getting us girls to jump over a sofa haha)
Both Dash and Katie had great communication and made both myself and my now husband, feel very at ease.
We would highly recommend Dash as a wedding photographer, such a great guy and we are very much looking forward to seeing the final photos!!

Thank you so much for capturing our special day!!

Super friendly, professional, and affordable!

Had my wedding exactly a week ago today, and lovely Dash was our photographer. We had a few unusual requests, as our wedding had a few extra complications, and covered them on our initial call. He was super accommodating and understood very well about the changing timings on an actual wedding day and how to work around them and suggest beautiful alternatives. He has already sent us our private gallery with all our photos! They are lovely and there are lots of them, I can't believe that he managed to work so fast on them too. Highly recommend :)

Loved the service provided!

We ordered the very minimal package as we wanted to spend time with our family. Dash and his apprentice made us feel very comfortable and we had fun along the way. The photos were just beautiful and turned out better than expected.
Communication was perfect leading up to the wedding and during the photographs. Can't thank you both enough and so happy we chose you to capture our special day 鉂わ笍

Couldn't have asked for more

Beendan was the perfect professional from start to finish.
We hired him for our small and unique, 1920s themed wedding and he got the style and the theme absolutely spot on. We couldn't have asked for more, especially at such a reasonable price.
Would highly recommend Dash

Absolutely incredible

I can't recommend dash photography enough. Both dash (brendan) and his daughter were there to photograph our wedding day an it was genuinely incredible. I am not one to want a photograph taken, its very confronting for me, but I have never in my life had 2 such amazing people make me feel more comfortable and at ease. From start to finish I was guided in every way possible. I have slight mobility issues and was always asked if anything was too much or if I needed a break. Dash is a genuine and kind man and his daughter was just fantastic. Both kind, caring and concientious all the way through.
We've also received our photos within 1 week! The photos are just amazing. Book them now. You will not be disappointed! Thankyou so so much to you both!!
