    a HUGE thankyou! :)

    Thankyou so much for capturing the most beautiful and most natural moments of our wedding day! We looked at each one last night...
    We love all the photos...we especially absolutely adore the close photos of us! The emotion that the photographs captured perfectly on our faces truly showed just how purely happy we were in that moment 🥰 looking through the photos brought back the emotions we felt on the day.

    David is AMAZING at what he does! A super friendly, non-intrusive, professional and very natural photographer! We both got very emotional looking back on our wedding day photos.

    Thankyou once again 😊

    Simply wonderful!

    We got married at the end of October at Glenmore House in Surbiton. David was amazing and so friendly, relaxed, happy to go with the flow, made great suggestions and fit right in with the wedding. All the guests commented on what a great guy he was! His pictures are gorgeous and he has captured our day beautifully. We wanted a few posed pictures and even though weather meant we didn't have too much time outside, we found pockets and the pictures of just me and my husband are ones that we will cherish forever. We love the confetti shots and the group pictures too but mostly we love the natural and in the moment snaps that tell the story of our day and all the good vibes, love, fun, laughter and of course dancing!
    We knew the pictures would be special because of the sneak peek blog, which was in itself amazing as David added text to key pictures to describe the day and again he did so beautifully. Highly recommended!

    Our wedding photography with David

    David was an absolute delight to work with for our wedding.
    I came across his work on social media as he was doing an offer for a short video included in the cost. We had a skype call (due to COVID) to meet and we decided to go ahead with the booking.

    Our original wedding was supposed to be in 2020, but like many others it had to be postponed. David was extremely sympathetic and helpful finding a new date. His correspondence throughout was very professional and we always had a quick response.

    I found all of the pre event questionnaires very useful - even though we were very laid back about the day and our plans... this helped us get some structure.

    When we finally got to the day, we could not have been more pleased with David and his work... he made us all feel so comfortable. Our family and friends really enjoyed having him around.

    And the results... were incredible. We were so delighted with all of the photos and especially the video. We had a couple of photos through as a sneak peak and they made us really excited to see the rest. When the album came through, we couldn't have been more pleased. They were exactly as we had envisioned. We can't stop looking at them.

    I would definitely recommend David again!

    Exactly what we wanted! Easy experience and the friendliest person!

    We had spoke to Dave beforehand explaining what we were after and he nailed it! He captured beautiful moments and in all the pictures of me and my husband we look relaxed and natural because of him! Not a single person was missing from our pictures and I love every single one of them! Even the usb that we got the pictures on was special and personalised! Couldn’t recommend him enoifh

    Fantastic photos, captured amazing memories

    Dave was so accommodating from the very first meeting, he listened to what we wanted and delivered all that and more. We felt really comfortable with Dave, which was important because neither of us particularly like our photo taken and we didn't want to look awkward and posed in them. Dave made us feel relaxed from the moment he turned up on the day. Him and his second shooter slotted right in and it was easy to forget they were there. The photos captured the atmosphere of the day perfectly, and the characters of our family and friends, whenever I look at them, I'm transported back to how I felt at the time. He managed to get candid photos of every single guest, which was really great because we wanted more natural pictures than posed ones. When the photos came through, there were shots there I didn't even realise he took, they really were beyond my expectations. The touches like the slideshow set to our first dance were incredibly thoughtful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone.

    Love our photos!

    David was fantastic, we love our photos! We weren't sure if we wanted a professional photographer at all for our registry office wedding, but are so glad we did. David put us at complete ease and we didn't feel awkward at all, and our guests even commented how personable, friendly and professional David was. The candid and natural photos are wonderful and really captured the essence of the day, even if our baby was crying through most of it (but again, we still got some lovely photos of him!). Cannot recommend enough!

    Mr and Mrs Potter

    David was fantastic at our wedding. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough. He understood exactly what we wanted and knew exactly where to take photos around our venue. David took relaxed photos which reflected the day and it felt like he wasn't even there. Nether of us like having our photo taken normally but nothing felt staged or posed and we love the end results! The wedding photos and videos we received were magical and we cant stop looking at them!

    Thank You so much David we cant recommend highly enough!

    Completely put us at ease and gave us beautiful pictures!

    David was so personable, fun and helped us feel comfortable throughout our wedding day. We did a few group photos where he helped everyone feel relaxed and the results we stunning. The rest of the day David just blended in and captured the natural moments, atmosphere and joy of the day. And the absolute pinnacle is the incredible highlight video David made for us, such a special summary and put to the music of our choice - we will truly cherish it forever and never get tired of watching it.

    Perfect photographer!

    We met David at a wedding fair BC (Before Covid) and instantly clicked with him. Our biggest draw to Davids style was a) the photos are not posed and b) the night shots are stunning. Before booking we went for a coffee to have a chat about all our weird and wonderful plans for our wedding day, we were thrilled that he was completely on board (and also shared our taste in music of the heavier variety!)
    On the day David was with me and my bridal party for prep, we spent most of the morning having a laugh, it all felt very relaxed! Throughout the day we barely noticed him (in the best way possible!) apart from a few shots we specifically wanted. We were lucky to have a stunning sunset after our wedding breakfast, David was quickly on it and swept us outside to get amazing photos before it got dark.
    And the night shots…beautiful. My favourite photos I’ve ever seen of us together.

    We also got the highlights video, if in doubt just DO IT I’ve watched it so many times and every time it makes my heart swell.

    David style also means I have some incredible, natural photos of my grandad who isn’t a fan of having his picture taken!

    We don’t plan on getting married again, but if we did we’d pick David in a heartbeat.

    Wedding photography

    David is professional and pays attention to detail. He was off taking photos and half the time we didn’t even realise he was there! Wonderful experience made us feel relaxed and captured the day beautifully! The highlight video captures the whole day in 12 minutes, it is something beautiful to look at and we will cherish forever! Would highly recommend David!

    Brilliant day with David

    David made our day extra special. He was very patient with our scheduling/rescheduling madness during COVID. On our actual day he captured moments I didn't realised would be important until I looked at the final images when we received them in a week. He was a very stealthy photographer and very non-intrusive. Brilliant artistic styles from composition to lighting. Highly recommended. No regrets having David capturing our very special day!
