Very pleased we found Duran

We found Duran (the face behind Durvean Photography) actually on Hitched and contacted him because of his soft, beautiful style of photography. We were so pleased he had availability (our wedding was the same year) and were very impressed by his pricing which included a pre wedding shoot also. On both the pre wedding shoot and on our wedding day he was very professional, prompt and made us feel at ease while having our photos taken. He was brilliant at directing us having never done a photo shoot before and on the wedding day even helped the flower girls with the bows on their dresses which was really sweet. The photos from both days are stunning and he sent them both within 3 weeks. Can't recommend enough, thank you Duran!

Legendary photographer

Duran was truly superman, finding ways to be everywhere at once. Not only is he an incredible photographer, allowing us to really enjoy the moment, we had every faith from our pre wedding shoot that he would capture them spectacularly, in his artistic and legendary style.

I found out that Duran must also moonlight as a stylist, as well as the man behind the Stories Lab - he'd be on hand to help fix my hair or neaten us up, which was greatly appreciated and made us look and feel picture perfect.

Duran also fit in immediately with our family and loved ones, his warmth was very apparent and they all had high praises for him, you'll find him in quite a few selfies too.

Thank you so much (Te艧ekk眉rler), Duran
for helping us tell our love story. They say pictures say a thousand words, but your pictures tell a million more.
