Incredible memories captured

David was amazing from start to finish, leading up to the day we had great communication and on the day he was fantastic, capturing so many candid moments that reflect the absolute fun and joy of our wedding, a lot of the time we didn’t even know he was there! He set up and organised all of the group shots we asked for as well and spent the morning whilst we were getting ready taking wonderful pictures of the venue as it was also transformed into our dream. The images are beautiful and we couldn’t of asked for better. His service was professional and relaxed and everyone felt totally at ease with him. And he is generally just a really lovely person! Our gallery was ready super quickly and we have had so much pleasure looking through it with friends and family and he captured our day perfectly. I would absolutely recommend David to anyone

Excellent service, amazing photos!

David was so professional yet lovely to deal with from the start. Got to our wedding venue early to set himself up. He was personable with all the family and guests. All that came into contact with him said he was so patient. The photos came out FABULOUS, bridal magazine worthy in their quality. David knew how to capture the spontaneous moments and he has given us so many emotional as well as humorous memories. We would 100% use David again for future events and also recommend him to all our friends and family! Thank you David! Salima and Eliot

Fantastic photography

I would really recommend David as he has an incredibly pleasant and calming demeanor. David made us feel very comfortable and was very laid back. Even with our small number of guests he was able to blend in and take some lovely candid photos as well as many beautiful group/couple shots. It's so hard to pick favourites, as there's so many beautiful memories captured.

Great photographer

David is not only a brilliant photographer, he made the booking experience and photos on the day so easy. He is very accommodating and really got to know what we wanted on the day (despite us being a little too laid back about it ;)
He is amazing value for money. I found other photographers tried to sell me endless packages but David was straightforward and honest
Definitely book him- he’s amazing

Super happy with our amazing photos!

We would absolutely recommend David to any couples looking to hire a wedding photographer. David researched the venue in advance, arrived early & worked tirelessly throughout the day to ensure the best shots were captured, whilst remaining discreetly in the background. Friendly, affable and professional - we were absolutely thrilled with the beautiful photos taken on our special day - a mixture of posed and natural shots in both B&W and colour which we will treasure forever.

Friendly, experienced & professional wedding photographer

When we started looking for a wedding photographer for our wedding we shortlisted a few and checked out there work online to see pictures from other weddings that they had done. What we liked about David's portfolio was his ability to take the natural shots which just captured the moment for what is was and that is what we wanted for our photos.

We could only have David at our church service due to our wedding being on the 4th July 2020 due to the restrictions in place with social distancing. David arrived an hour before the service to take pictures of the church, surrounding areas and to capture all of our guests arriving. My wife and I were very pleased to say the least with the pictures and although we only had him at the church service we was given 152 professional edited pictures with a mixture of colour and black & white, which we was over the moon with. There were so many natural shots of my wife and I words cannot describe how happy we are that we choose David to be our photographer and at such short notice.

David is very friendly and professional photographer. At one point David was lying on the grass in his suit just to take the shot at the best angle, My wife and I was shocked at it but just goes to show the lengths he is willing to go to for the best picture, we had a bit of rain but that didn't stop David from being out there to capture our moments.

Thank you so much David for the amazing photo's.

Kind Regards,

Gary & Marvella.
