About Damien Vickers Photography

Hello I’m Damien and I’m a contemporary wedding photographer covering the whole of the UK and Abroad.

My style is modern photojournalism but I stand out from the crowd because my photography is all about capturing personalities and emotions.

I love people, parties and photography so a wedding is the perfect "marriage" of this lovely triangle!

My images are natural, creative and fun. Full of soul, full of smiles and overflowing with laughter with a few tears of joy thrown in!!

The story of your day as it naturally unfolds. I get real joy from freezing moments in time that your family will absolutely fall in love with and your friends will coo over!!!

Most of my couples are a little less on the traditional side. Creative folk who value great photography but most of all value their friends, family and the importance of ensuring everyone has the party of their lives !

If this sounds like you - I'd really love to be part of your day!

  • "A dream photographer"
    Ellie Reakes on 18 July 2019

    Let me start by saying that Damien was the absolute dream photographer for my wedding this year. For two people who aren't particularly happy in front of a camera, he made us feel comfortable in his presence from the very first phonecall consultation. From there he invited us to have a pre-wedding shoot which gave us a taster of the experience we would have on the day and allowed us to experiment with poses to see what suited us and what didn't. We had ongoing communication with Damien from start to finish to make sure that we would have all of the shots we wanted on the day (grooms first sight of the bride, the dress, the getting ready shots etc as well as the family group shots which our parents wanted). Damien blended seamlessly into the day, with many of my guests left wondering how he got such great shots as they rarely saw him! Damien worked incredibly hard to be in the right place at the right time and was continually conscious of aspects like angles and sunsets to give us photos we could have only dreamt of. This was all the more incredible because he had never been to our venue before. When we received our pictures we were elated. He captured the day so well and the emotion in each shot was stunning. From proud mothers looking at us, to giggling bridesmaids to partying friends; it was all perfect. The colours were vibrant, the shots were clear and (dare we say it) we looked great!!! You would never have guessed we were the awkward and camera shy people from before. Since then, I have been asked several times for Damien's contact by my guests as they were so impressed. This man is excellent. Highly recommended

  • "Highly recommended"
    Melissa & Stephen on 18 July 2019

    Damien came to our rescue when we found out the photographer we already booked a year before our wedding went bankrupt we were really stressed and upset about finding another one with only 7 months to go before our wedding. Then we found Damien on facebook he recently done a wedding of someone I went to school with when we contacted Damien he was really nice and understanding and was sympatric to what had happened to us he sent us across his package deals and his pictures and we were amazed at the work he done we booked him straight away, we met him closer to the wedding to go over what pictures are most important to us and just to get to know a little bit more about each other, so when it came to our wedding day we wernt all complete strangers which was nice because we felt more relaxed. The wedding day went really smoothly none of the pictures were forced it was all really natural and he just captured everyones laughter and the enjoyment of the day everyone loved him and he made everyone laugh when it came to the group photos. Our photos came back within a few weeks and they were absolutely amazing! weve had so many nice comments on the photos and he also made us a slide show of pictures to music which was incredible it made us relive the day again and brought tears to our eyes, we also received a presentation box with a few printed pictures and a USB with all the pictures on it. The quality of everything has been to a very high standard. We would highly recommend Damien he's an amazing photographer and such a lovely person.
