    Amazing beyond words

    Danielle captured our wedding day in Spain perfectly! She is such a lovely person who allows you to feel so relaxed and in turn captures pictures that really illustrated our personality as a couple. She also blended into the day seamlessly which ensured she got lovely candid photos of our guests which were amazing. Leading up to our wedding she met with us to ensure she understood the running order of our day and what we wanted from her which was so comforting because I will admit, I was a nightmare when it came to my stress levels around our wedding photography. The teaser photos she sent came just a few short weeks after our wedding and were incredible, and the rest were no less amazing! Finally the personal touches Danielle puts into her marketing and the high tech capabilities of her business (website, photo sharing etc) are extremely impressive.

    I couldn’t recommend Danielle enough! Thank you beyond words!

    An amazing photographer

    After some searching and finding Danielle's work through a mutual friend of mine, we decided to ask Danielle to be our photographer for our wedding which took place in March 2019. We have been blown away by her approach to photography, she blended in with the crowd and we honestly forgot she was there, her style is amazing, exactly what we wanted, she is brilliant at catching those candid moments, even the obligatory group photos were great, she is a lovely lady with exceptional talent. She makes you feel at easy, will get to know you to find out what you are looking for and will answer any questions you have. She is great at finding the best natural light to compliment your photos. We highly recommend Danielle and can't thank her enough for capturing our day.

    Beautiful, elegant photography

    If you are looking for the perfect wedding photographer look no further than Danielle Smith. Danielle captured our wedding just a few weeks ago and wow were we pleased. As the bride I found it very hard to choose a photographer, how do you choose someone to capture the best day of your life? It's a lot of pressure to find someone that suits your style and that you feel comfortable with in person. Danielle very quickly put me at ease at our first meeting and took the pressure off straight away. I had every faith in her and was so relieved to have found someone.

    Danielle's style of photography is absolutely beautiful, she is extremely talented. As the bride and groom you miss several moments throughout the day, but Danielle has captured so many priceless moments for us. Your wedding day is quite simply the best day ever, and being able to re live the day through the photography is everything. I can not recommend Danielle enough, she helped capture our fairytale wonderland wedding perfectly. Some of the pictures brought me to tears, they enabled me to re live the day. The best thing about memories is making them, but having a talented person to capture those very special moments means you can re live the memories over and over again. A keepsake you can cherish forever and share with friends and family.

    From the bottom of our hearts thank you Danielle. The newlyweds Megan & Richard x
