Wedding Photography Done Perfectly

My goal as your photographer is to capture those special moments in a timeless way, producing wedding photography that lets you look back and smile for years to come.

I’m Dominic Smith, a wedding photographer based in Sussex.

I’ve been shooting weddings for over 10 years, and I love capturing the beauty and emotion of these special days. I believe that wedding photography should be more than just a collection of posed portraits. It should be the story of your day, told through my lens.

I’m passionate about capturing the real moments of your wedding day, from the first look to the last dance. I want to help you create a lasting memory of your special day that you can cherish for years to come.

I’m a natural storyteller, and I love using my creativity to capture your wedding day in an unforgettable way. I’m also a highly skilled wedding photographer, and I have the experience to capture photos of all those special moments.

If you’re looking for a wedding photographer who can capture your special day in a way that is both beautiful and meaningful, I would be honoured to be your photographer. I would love to chat with you more about your wedding plans and how I can help you create a lasting memory of your day.

Here are some of the things that I offer as a wedding photographer:

  • Unobtrusive photography: I believe that the best wedding photography is the kind that you don’t even notice. I will blend in with the background and capture your day as it happens, without getting in the way of your guests or your celebrations.
  • Creative storytelling: I love using my creativity to capture your wedding day in a unique and unforgettable way. I will work with you to ensure that every element of your wedding day is captured in my natural and relaxed style.
  • High-quality photos: I am a highly skilled photographer with the experience to take stunning photos in any situation. I will deliver high-resolution photos that you can cherish for years to come. Personal service: I believe that wedding photography is about more than just taking photos. It’s about building a relationship with my clients and helping them create a lasting memory of their special day. I will be there for you every step of the way, from the planning stages to the final delivery of your photos.

Just incredible

We found Dominics pictures online and fell in love with them. As soon as we met Dominic, we just knew it had to be him. From start to finish Dominic communicated everything with us, explained all we needed to know, was always available to answer any questions we had, and made us feel completely at ease. On the day he was just incredible and the end result was outstanding. We honestly couldn't thank Dominic enough and will forever highly recommend him!

A genuine, wonderful and talented person

There aren’t words to say how much I appreciate how wonderful Dom was on our wedding day. We got married during coronavirus so all our plans changed so many times, yet he was with us the whole way, incredibly flexible, going above and beyond, whilst also taking the time to make sure we were doing okay too. His work speaks for itself, it’s incredible, but what you are also getting is a friend for the day too. A humble, extremely talented, and just genuinely lovely person. I recommend Dom to everyone!

Outstanding!

I met Dominic and his partner at a Wedding Fayre and from the moment we met I knew this was the team I wanted to capture our wedding day. I hate having my photo taken and I was terrified of having pictures done but was torn because I so desperately wanted to preserve the memories of our special day. I shouldn’t have worried. Dominic is funny, kind, engaging and just wonderful at his job. Dom blended in so well that I barely noticed him snapping away which resulted in some beautiful ‘real’ moments being captured. The thing I can’t rave enough about however, is how well Dom captured the love of the day; that is such a gift. He caught looks that will enable me to feel the emotion of the moment for years to come and this is so precious. Dominic also captured the importance of the little things. My dad has passed away and so we had a few little ways of incorporating him in the day. Without instruction, Dom picked up on this and put together some truly beautiful images which brought dad right into the whole day.
We got the package which is one large framed pic, 20 prints and a USB stick in a presentation box which contained over 700 images. The value for money is unreal.
I cannot thank Dominic enough, he has now be named ‘The Wizard’ in our home due to his magical skills!
I would recommend Dominic to one and all. From the moment we met, to him coming to our home to discuss our requirements and through to seeing the pictures he has been professional, kind, helpful and a pleasure to work with.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Better than we could have ever dreamed

We know it sounds cheesy but it is so hard to put into words the joy and gratitude we feel for Dominic (and his lovely assistant Maky) for the amazing job he did shooting our wedding day and making it extra special. It is really important to have a photographer that you connect with and one that draws you to their style and we had that instantly with Dominic. From the moment we crossed his work at a wedding fair in the very early days of wedding planning, we knew we had to have him shoot our wedding day and held every limb and appendage crossed whilst he checked his schedule! Lucky for us, he had our date free and we have never looked back since.

You will know by looking at Dominic’s work that he captures very candid and beautiful snaps in such a way that can only be described as truly elegant, but you will never really know just how well he does this until the day he sends that breath-taking sneak-peek link to you or the full album of your big day. What he does is nothing short of magic!

It is important to note that we are a very camera-shy and anti-spotlight couple (although I think Dominic will disagree with this now!) and were extremely worried about being the centre of attention, especially having 2 cameras in our faces – but we really shouldn’t have been worried at all. Both Dominic and Maky were so unobtrusive you could hardly tell they were there, yet somehow they were everywhere and managed to capture moments we didn’t even know they were part of! It really helped having such a warm, friendly and funny photographer and one that is so easy to get on with as it made us feel super comfortable around them and all of our guests echoed this opinion as well. 

Dominic and Maky worked tirelessly from the morning of our wedding to very late in the evening snapping away constantly and all the while made what they do seem so effortless and like nothing was too much trouble. Dominic even sent over our sneak-peek photos at 1.30am after having stayed into the late evening to capture the perfect sunset and sparkler shots for us – is there anything he can’t do?! We then received our album in lightning speed, although at no detriment to the quality or selection (this was no mean feat as he had thousands of photos to go through, select and fine tune!) and in our opinion, this says so much about Dominic’s work ethic and character. Going through the photos he had taken was so special for us - we could 100% feel the love, laughter and happiness in each and every shot and it was as if we were reliving the day again through his camera lens, whilst feeling all the emotions of the day at the same time. Small details often overlooked or forgotten, but were essential to the success and joy of the day, were also caught and will be cherished for a lifetime.

It really shows in our photographs just how much work Dominic and Maky put into capturing every moment, and they did it perfectly – we absolutely cannot thank them enough. Dominic truly went above and beyond, and because of this our photos are everything we wanted and more. Dominic will always hold a special place in our hearts and when the time comes, there will be no one else we would rather take our baby photos! 

So if you were uhm-ing and ahh-ing about booking Dominic Smith Photography for your big day, then you really needn’t look any further. We wholeheartedly recommend Dominic to you – he has all the greatest qualities you could ask for in a photographer: competitive prices, responsiveness, understanding, the ability to be in 15 places at once, a keen eye, a positive attitude, assertiveness and last but not least a WICKED sense of humour. The only thing we are unhappy about is the fact we are no longer working with him!

The best wedding photographer

Dominic was brilliant. We met him at a wedding fair and he photographed my venue before and at that point I knew that I wanted him to photograph my wedding day. On the day he arrived promptly and got on with what he needed to do without me needing to be involved. He made sure that all of our group photos we wanted were done and that we got some shots we didn’t even know we wanted. There was never any pressure to go off and take pictures and both him and Aby were very professional.
My pictures came back really quickly and they are all amazing. I couldn’t thank him enough for what he did on our wedding day and would highly recommend him to anyone else looking

The most amazing photos

We are over the moon with the photos Dominic took at our wedding. As we got married during COVID restrictions we weren't allowed any dancing so Dominic suggested that we could have sparklers as a nice end to the evening. It was such a good suggestion and worked so well. We got some great photos with the sparklers at the end of the night, it was the perfect end to the best day ever. Dominic was amazing at capturing all moments throughout the day without us even noticing he was there too! Dominic was also very good at communicating throughout the pandemic (we hired him before COVID) and our wedding ended up being much smaller than we had initially planned. Dominic was very understanding and it would have been easy to move the date with him had we so wished, however we wanted to go ahead with the 30 people we were allowed. We ended up going for just the one photographer rather than the two we had originally booked, and Dominic swapped us on to the smaller package with no issues.
Thank you again for all the amazing photos. We'd highly recommend.

Amazing and friendly photographer(s)

Dominic put us at ease right from the start, we first spoke via Facebook video chat and was surprised by how easy it was. Dominic was so helpful and really listened to our questions, he wasn't in a rush to leave or make sure he was booked. We spoke about the benefits of booking a photographer for half a day or full day, our budget, venue and guests.

Dominic kept us informed throughout the process of what we needed to do and what the timeline was - he gave us helpful guidance for the amount of group photos needed (we went for about 10) and explained what his role would be on the day.

On our wedding day Dominic & Maccy (second photographer) were at the venue, Wadhurst Castle before I had arrived (I was getting ready in the venue) around 9.30am - and we weren't getting married until 2.30pm. He checked out the venue on the day for the best photographic places taking into account the weather conditions, our requests and the interests of the guests. As it was 30 degrees he wanted to ensure that our group photos went as smoothly as possible and we weren't stood in solid sunshine for too long!

Having two photographers for the whole day meant that nothing was missed - it has been incredible to look back through the photos and see that they really did capture the day and emotion.

I would most definitely recommend Dominic and his team - you won't get such a helpful, relaxed and clued up photographer any where else.

Thank you Dominic Smith Photography!

Easy, High Quality and Enjoyable

Dominic was excellent. We first noticed his photos at a fayre and loved his natural style. His ability to capture a moment without the people even noticing. He was also the only photographer that didn't hound us for a deposit and allowed us time to browse his albums and make our minds up in our time. Throughout the whole process, Dominic allowed us to chose our style and how we wanted him to behave on the day. He kept us updated with the arrival date of our actual photos and the final presentation and USB gift box was amazing. The photo quality and range was brilliant. He captured some absolutely stunning moment of our day.

Amazing experience

I got married 10 days ago and I am so happy we decided to go with Dominic. The night of the wedding we had a few pictures sent to us for a sneak peak. As a couple who hate photographs being taken, Dominic was the best for the job. He made us feel comfortable and half the time we didn’t realise there were pictures being taken. He was very professional and was there to help on the day. I cannot wait to get our wedding pictures back as the ones we have seen already are amazing.

If you’re looking for a photographer I would 100% recommend Dominic, you will not be disappointed.
