Altenative wedding photography for fun loving and non-traditional couples.
Vibrant and colourful wedding photography that focuses and capturing emotions, personalities and everyone having the time of their lives!
You don't want to be standing around for ages for family photos and you definitely don't want an hour awkward cheesey posing.
I've got it covered - I shoot in a documetary style that doesn't take over your day and your time. You want a photographer who blends in seemlessly with your guests and captures all the amazing momnets as they happen.
I will also get some amazing photos of you as a couple, completely natural, nothing awkward or forced. You'll look fantastic because you'll be having the most amazing day. You can leave it to me to find the best spots that suit you and the best light to get amazing results. The best thing is it will only be 10 minutes of your whole day!
Sound like you?
Perfect - let's do this.

Professional Nikon camera equipment and all photos edited on a 27" Mac so no detail is missed.

I blend in as much as possible and interact with the guests as if I were one of the guests myself. This helps to get the best out of people. That said I am discreet and unobtrusive too.

My turnaround time for a wedding is typically 2 weeks.

No - part of my service is to skillfully edit your images to perfection and build a visual story of your day.

Wonderful Wedding Photographer
Damien was our photographer of choice for our wedding in April 2019. We were attracted to vibrant colourful pictures in his portfolio.Sent on 04/07/2019
He definitely didn't disappoint. Neither my husband nor I are a fan of pictures, so we didn't want to spend all day taking posed photos, Damien accommodated this perfectly. Instead his photos were mostly all candid of us our guests.
In particular we loved that Damien stayed well into the evening and took many pictures of us and our guests on the dancefloor. The photos were so vibrant and really captured the energy in the room
Thank you, Damien, for our perfect Wedding Photos.

Blown Away !!!!
That's how Paul and I felt when we first saw the beautiful images that Damien captured of a fabulous wedding. He really did create a visual story with both the photos he took and the way they were presented. From our first chat with Damien until he presented us with out photos nothing was too much trouble and he made us feel so at ease on the day it was like having a friend take our wedding photos. The portraits of the two of us actually made my mum cry !!Sent on 03/08/2017
Damien also took some amazing shots of our guest enjoying the speeches which we really love!
He is both a really lovely guy and a super talented photographer.
We've seen by work by other photographers who charge over £500 more than Damien who's photos aren't in the same league.
We can't wait now for our Wedding album.
Book him before it's too late !!!

Beautifully Natural Photos
We simply cannot recommend Damien highly enough!Sent on 18/07/2017
Right from our initial enquiry he was keen, genuinely interested and full of ideas. His level of service is highly professional and efficient but more importantly he is a warm and friendly person - it felt like he was just another friend at our wedding.
As for the photos themselves - we were blown away!
So many memories! Damien has a real skill in capturing laughter, tears and all the emotions of the day. We're also delighted with the stunning portraits of me and my husband Nick - the way that Damien captures the natural light towards the end of the day makes them truly stunning.
For the league of photography Damien is in his pricing is very reasonable.
Once again I cannot recommend him highly enough!!
