    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.

    Excellent photographer, lovely person, perfect service

    David is a brilliant, creative photographer and a lovely person. He cares deeply about his work and about his service. His images feel spontaneous and full of life. He is unobtrusive during events and misses nothing. He is just the sort of photographer you want for a wedding and can handle huge complicated events as well as small intimate ones. I can't recommend him highly enough.

    Amazing, Professional & Friendly!

    Absolutely amazing photographer! We had to push our wedding back a year but we were in constant contact with David throughout the wedding process. He is such a friendly and professional person whilst working. My husband and I aren't really posing people but David captured our natural happiness and smiles throughout the day. It was lovely to see behind the scenes pictures of the guests arriving and dancing at the reception. Everyone commented on how David covered every single area of the wedding from the getting ready,arriving,ceremony, dinner, speeches,cake cutting&reception. David was everywhere but also nowhere as we have lots of pictures but I cannot remember seeing him sometimes as he blended in so well with the guests. If I ever need a photographer for any occasion I know where I am going! Lastly, for the price of hiring David you will not be disappointed with the outcome of the pictures, lovely colour and black and white professional pictures for a fraction of these other overpriced photographers. I know who I would prefer to hire! Thank you David you really have captured our wedding perfectly.

    Fantastic photographer for wedding day

    David went above and beyond as our wedding photographer. We had multiple conversations with him before the wedding both on zoom and in person so he could understand what we wanted and help us feel a lot more at ease on the day. David had to also adapt all our wedding photography to be inside due to it raining heavily on the day. We got sent back a couple of preview photos the week after the wedding and was given all our photos on a online gallery two weeks later, with a USB coming later in the post.

    We would definitely recommend David if you want natural shots of your wedding day, many of our guests didn’t register he was there taking photos during the day so we have some lovely naturally happy photos of people.

    Wonderful selection of photos

    David did a great job photographing our wedding for the day. We had asked for less posed photos and for him to just blend in and capture the day which is exactly what he did. Guests commented how discrete he was and as a result we have lots of natural photos of people enjoying themselves, not looking forced. He also did a mini shoot for the two of us at the venue during the drinks reception and these turned out wonderfully also. David was always quick to respond and we got a link to the photos and memory stick within a few weeks. We would highly recommend David.

    Fantastic.

    David made us feel so comfortable on the day and got all the photos we asked for plus so many more and we loved every single one of them.
    He gave us such a great deal and then even stayed longer than we had originally agreed to get in some amazing photos of our guests enjoying the reception.
    Thank you so much David you were outstanding.
    From the new Mr and Mrs Skilling.

    Amazing from the start to finish!

    We used David for our August wedding and he was amazing from our first meeting right up to sending our pictures. All of the photographs were lovely and exactly what we wanted. He made us feel very relaxed and we didn’t notice how many amazing pictures he had taken throughout the day. Would definitely recommend.

    David Potter

    David done an amazing job capturing our special day and provided unbelievable photos which will allow us to relive our day forever.

    David was very friendly and accommodating to us and of our guests bending over backwards to help capture everyone’s moments.

    He used the trees, plants and the grounds of the venue to capture stunning photos of our wedding day - something beyond special and will look incredible on our walls.

    David stayed late to help us capture special moments beyond the time he should have been there til- he could clearly see there were more moments to capture and kindly kept snapping well into the evening.

    Some of the best photos captured were when we were unaware of David taking photos, capturing those moments of laughter and fun. He was very friendly and was barely noticeable during the day which is a credit to him.

    David truly has a great talent for photography and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

    Thanks for capturing our special day David!

    Amazing photographer?? Captured the day perfectly

    David was fabulous from start to finish. We set up an initial face to face meeting and he really listened to our requirements, and to details of the day. We chose David for the natural style of his photos as we wanted a relaxed and informal photography style, he really captures the “feel” of the moment / day, we didn’t want anything too formal, although he also did some very lovely “organised” photos of the family VERY efficiently considering the amount of people , we had a very strict / limited timescale for these and David got all the formal photos we’d asked for. Brilliant!
    David really gets in amongst the guests unnoticed to get the natural snaps, I honestly cannot remember seeing him during our reception at all (no I wasn’t super drunk haha), the photos he got of people dancing and sharing moments are priceless, thank you so much David!
    We got the edited photos very quickly via Dropbox and the USB followed, got some lovely black & white ones in there too, very atmospheric and glamorous.
    Thanks again David, thanks to you we could see that everyone was really enjoying themselves on our special day, and that means the most to us.

    David Potter Photography's reply:

    It was such lovely day to be a part of down and in particular down on the Thames. I felt very welcome and the relaxed nature of the wedding helped to get some great shots of everyone. All the best.
