Last update: July 2024

Hey there,

I’m Damian, the guy behind DS Wedding Photography, hanging out in the heart of Yorkshire. If you're looking for a photographer who not only captures moments but also creates memories, and who not only focuses on YOU (the couple XD) but also takes care of your loved ones and everything happening around you, you're in good hands! From candid and colorful shots to lovely posed portraits - I'm here to make your memories last a lifetime. If you're after someone who's your friend as much as your photographer, and brings a relaxed, fun vibe to your day, then you're in the right place!

What gets me going is catching those real smiles and genuine moments in front of my camera. My aim? To freeze the laughter and happy tears, creating memories that stick with you forever. More than just a photographer, I’m here to be your trustworthy friend, someone who brings the chill vibes, an extra guest at your wedding – not just the camera dude. No matter where or how big, every wedding is a big deal to me! Lucky enough to work with couples from all over the UK, weaving beautiful stories of their special day. Excited to hear what you’ve got planned!

My photography motto is simple – I want you to have a blast on your big day and relive those awesome moments through stunning pics.

I approach each wedding like it’s my own, making sure not a single moment slips by. Every package includes a pre-chat, so we can chat about your day and tailor things just for you.

I’m committed to capturing the real feel of your day – from getting ready and the guest arrivals to cutting the cake and that all-important send-off. Whether you go for a full day or just half, DS Wedding Photography has got you covered with a bunch of options, like:

The best photographer you could want on your wedding!

Damian was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. He literally didn’t stop for the full day running around trying to capture every moment he could. He was so helpful and friendly by the end of the day I forgot he was even our photographer and thought he was one of my guests I’d known for years! Nothing was too much trouble for him and you can clearly tell he is passionate about his work and wanted to make the best memories for us.

Everyone commented on how great Damian was and if you are reading this review because you’re looking for a wedding photographer. Look no further and book him.

Thanks again Damian I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos. It’s going to be a long few weeks but I know they’ll be worth the wait!

Exceeded Expectations wouldn't hesitate to recommend

I booked Damien after our original photographer let us down and I'm so glad we went with him. He provided the relaxed nature I was looking for in my wedding photographs and I'm so happy with our images.
He was very professional leading up to our day with several meetings to discuss our needs and ideas and made it easier on the day. He was punctual, easy going and made everyone relaxed in front of the camera.
Thank you so much for being a part of our day and for giving us so many special memories

Absolutely brilliant! Could not have asked for more!

Damian was our wedding photographer in August and he also did an engagement photo shoot for us too. He was incredibly professional, accommodating to all our requests, and very friendly! We are unbelievably happy with our photos - he managed to capture both the fun and sentimentality of the day. Our wedding day was incredibly sunny and all the photos are so bright, colourful and happy - we really couldn’t have asked for more! We also purchased an album through Damian which is beautifully bound and such a wonderful memento of the day. We would 100% recommend booking Damian as your wedding photographer - he was absolutely brilliant!

Mr & Mrs West

We found Damian through recommendation. He responded quickly to our initial enquiry. He arranged a video call to us to explain how he works and what we need to think of in terms of type of photo shots etc. He took all of our details and arranged a time to talk again before wedding date..On the day he was there in good time and from feedback was very polite with our guests. He worked tiredly throughout the service and afterwards in family photos etc. He was great with children's photos and kept us all engaged throughout. The photos came 6 weeks after the ceremony and we were very pleases with what we received. Damian gave us information on how and where best to send USB to have printed off and also offered an albumn if we wanted. We were very happy with our photos and look forward to choosing our favourites and sharing with family and friends.

Fun and friendly photographer

Damian was an excellent photographer at our wedding and was fantastic at getting the best out of everyone, for the group shots particularly. It was much more fun than the standard wedding photography shoot, and we were very happy with the photos afterwards. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for high quality photography and a fun friendly photographer.

Everything we dreamed of!

Damian is a one in a million photographer. Made ourselves and our guests feel comfortable and amazing! Not only did he take pictures of posed moments, he gets the best candids going, believe me. We are so grateful for all of our amazing pictures and will cherish them all forever.

Thanks Damian📸

Lots of love

Damian was fantastic on our wedding day, he was engaging with guests and with ourselves. He did not make things awkward even for those that don't like their photos being taken, he was dressed smartly and blended in the crowd for more candid shots. Could not recommend Damian enough.

Outstanding service!

Damian was an absolute vital part of our wedding day, he listened to what we wanted however really enhanced our ideas to make them better than we could ever imagine. Damian fit into our wedding day like a puzzle piece, we had so many comments about how amazing he was and how he didn’t just focus on the couple, he focused on all of our guests and therefore captured some absolutely beautiful candid photos of our loved ones.
We would recommend Damian a thousand times over to anybody, so friendly and professional!

Amazing Wedding Photographer

Damian was our wedding photographer in February 2024. He was brilliant throughout the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. A few weeks before the wedding we had a video call with Damian where we discussed all of the details and what we were looking for in terms of photo style etc, he is very friendly, funny and relaxed. On the day, Damian was extremely helpful, calm and flexible. All of the photos came in very good time following the wedding date and they are beautiful. We would highly recommend Damian☺️

Very happy with the photos

Damian did a wonderful job on our wedding day! He was calm, friendly, polite and it seemed like many people did not really notice him taking pictures- which is a very positive thing. The photos Damian took are absolutely stunning, even though he was working under unfortunate conditions. We can definitely recommend his services to others.

Captured the fun in our wedding day

We were looking for Derbyshire and Yorkshire based photographers for our wedding day and Damien fit the bill straight away. He was flexible, approachable and went above and beyond with our photo requests. He was great with the guests on the day, went above and beyond with our requests, and took some beautiful photographs that captured the day perfectly. The one of us walking down the confetti line, and the one of us in the rain together continue to make us smile even now!

Thank you Damian and hope to have a chance to work with you again in the future! 😄

Fabulous wedding photographer

Damian was the photographer for our wedding in May 2023. We were particularly keen to find a photographer who specialised in candid shots as my husband is a little camera-shy, as well as trying to find someone who was great value for money, had lots of positive reviews and a 5 star portfolio. Damian ticked all those boxes and more; he was so professional, kind, and warm and both ourselves and our guests felt so comfortable around him on the big day. Damian went the extra mile to ensure that we got all the shots that we wanted and we are so grateful for that. We absolutely love our wedding photos, as do our guests, and I just want to say a huge thank you to Damian for his hard work and kindness.
