Simply the best wedding photos I have ever seen.

Where do we even begin on Dan‘s photos? We honestly could not be happier. Each photo was more stunning and captivating than the last, we can’t even put into words how grateful we are for having Dan capture our day.

Dan's ability to capture candid moments is truly remarkable. His photos go beyond just capturing people in the frame; they capture the energy, the essence, and the joy of the day. Looking at his photos allows us to relive and re-experience not only our precious moments, but he managed to seek out the magic and gorgeous moments that we were not even aware of. Dan has a talent for then bottling that energy and immortalizing it through his lens.

What sets Dan apart is not just his talent, but also his personality. He has a warm and friendly demeanor that made everyone around him feel comfortable and at ease. As he snapped away, he encouraged us to be ourselves and carry on naturally. Most of the time, we were unaware that he was capturing these moments until we saw the photos later. This is a testament to his ability to blend into the background and capture genuine, unposed moments.

Communication with Dan was a breeze throughout the entire process. His pre and post-production communication felt more like talking to a friend rather than a supplier, whilst also being highly professional throughout the whole process. He took the time to understand our preferences and vision, ensuring that we were on the same page. On the day of the event, he put in a long and dedicated shift, working tirelessly to capture every important moment. The turnaround time for the images was incredibly fast, and we were presented with a wealth of breathtaking photos to choose from.

However, this led to a delightful dilemma. Each photo was so stunning and enchanting, making it difficult to narrow down our selection. We were spoiled for choice with the sheer amount of amazing photos he provided us with.

In conclusion, we couldn't be happier with Dan's photos. His talent, warmth, and genuine passion for his craft shine through in every image he captures. Working with Dan was an absolute pleasure, and we wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who wants their special moments beautifully captured for a lifetime. Our biggest piece of advice is to let Dan have free rein to do what he does best, you will not be disappointed. The photos he took whilst roaming our wedding are some of the most beautiful photographs of our favourite people that we have ever seen.

Thank you, Dan, for capturing our day in a way that truly exceeded our expectations. Your photos are absolute works of art that we will cherish forever.

A truly talented photographer

Dan’s work ethic is second to none, his whole process was easy, from booking to organising and even meeting up to discuss our requirements.
He has a very rare talent of capturing the whole experience without you really knowing he’d captured it. He spent so much time with all of our guests and captured every inch of our day.
For the work and time he spent with us he was worth every penny, please consider Dan for your wedding you absolutely won’t regret it, thanks Dan

The most friendly, relaxed guy. Just amazing.

I don't even know where to begin. From the minute we contacted Dan we knew he was the guy for us. Seeing his work and his eye for candid shots was just the vibe we were after. Dan was so relaxed and easy going which was just a breath of fresh air as I'd heard horror stories of some photographers being sticklers for schedules. But our guests, venue and other suppliers couldn't sing his praises enough. He worked tirelessly throughout the whole day and captured the most beautiful shots. Some we didn't even realise he was there for. We cannot rate him enough, words can't even express just how amazing he is. But I sure hope a few snippets of our day can show you. Thank you so much again Dan, you made our day that bit more magical.

An amazing photographer and a pleasure to be around

Dan has a natural eye for great photography and is always there to take the perfect shot.
We hire Dan to shoot our wedding and asked for a more documentary style of shoot and Dan captured the day perfectly

Exceeded all expectations

Dan is a professional, communicative and easy going individual. I would recommend Dan to any person hunting for a photographer who's approach is relaxed, authentic and unobtrusive with a real eye for capturing beautiful and dreamy moments.

You won't find any forced smiles staring down the lens, as Dan prefers a to capture organic snapshots in time. When you look through the photos, it really shows the vibe of the day and tells the story of THAT moment.

Dan clearly loves and cares about what he does. From our our first contact, to our continuing aftercare, he's been communicative via email, Whatsapp and telephone. Each time we've met him, he's been polite and open, immediately putting us at ease. It felt like he was an old friend rather than a photographer we'd met twice!

Dan's turn around times are unbelievable. Within a couple of days of our wedding, we had hundreds of edited images to look through to relive the day. These images are also super easy to share with other loved ones.
We've had plenty of comments from friends and family about how good his pictures are and we are incline to agree.

It can be exceptionally daunting to trust someone to take pictures of such a special day. Just go and make the call and let Dan know what you are after. Dan one of those people who takes great pride in his work and relishes making ideas come to life.

Absolute perfection

Choosing Daniel for our photographer was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Breathtaking photos and the best person to spend our wedding day with. Not only did he make us look like rock stars, but we would get married all over again just for the excuse to hang out with this fantastic human for another day.

Couldn’t recommend Dan highly enough!

Dan was fantastic. He originally caught our eye with his style (candid documentary style with great editing to enhance the shots), but he really exceeded our expectations. He was so great on the day - he coordinated things with control but was in no way overbearing. He gave little suggestions throughout the day too, which were really helpful and turned out perfectly, whilst also listening to all of our requests beforehand and on the day itself. Dan was also so friendly with all of our guests and many of them told us how great he was.

Not only was he fantastic on the day, but the turnaround time for the hundreds of photos he took was unbelievably fast, which was really appreciated by us and all of our guests. Everyone commented on how beautiful the photos of the day were and we couldn’t be happier with how it all went.

Could not recommend Dan highly enough to everyone!

Talented, professional and genuine

Daniel is an absolute star on the rise. We chose him as our wedding photographer hoping to find someone who could capture the authentic moments instead of purely posed photographs, and he was everything we hoped for. Going through our wedding album we've been amazed at the way he's caught everything from our big moments to the background fun that we missed. Cannot recommend him highly enough. It also helps that he's very professional and a good laugh!

Professional, Intimate, Natural

My wife and I hired Dan to photograph our wedding in Sherborne in June 2022. We were looking for a candid-style photographer who had a modern feel and very high quality work. That's exactly what Dan gave us! We searched for photographers in Dorset, and even though he's based in the Midlands, we saw his work and knew we had to have him. Thankfully he does not charge for mileage, so I recommend booking him even if he's not in your area.
From our initial phone call he seemed super laid-back yet professional, and he fit with our vibe perfectly. We wanted our wedding to feel intimate even though we had 120 guests, but most of all we wanted it to feel whimsical and effortlessly fun for everyone. Dan helped us feel at ease since my wife and I aren't exactly the most natural in front of the camera. Several of our guests asked us if he was a friend, since we were so comfortable with him, but we hadn't even met him before that day.
Throughout the whole process Dan was great at communicating with us about the schedule and our expectations. We wanted our photos to look natural and classy, with nothing cheesy or too formal. He made sure to capture all the moments that were important to us, and even got the entire party together for an impromptu group photo in front of the venue's amazing barn.
He was flexible when there was an issue getting a hotel room for my bridesmaids and me to get ready in. We ended up crammed in a tiny room, stressed about family members travelling from overseas whose arrival was cutting it extremely close to the wedding time! Despite all this unexpected anxiety, Dan showed up and his presence reassured me that we could roll with the punches and have a fun time. I was delightfully surprised by how many angles he could capture in such a tiny space.
We received our photos only three days after the wedding, which was sooner than he told us, and he included at least 100 more than was in the contract. We were immensely pleased with the quality of the photos and how he captured all the laughter from the whole day. He took some cool artistic photos of our bouquets, vintage VW vans that we arrived in, and the Morris dancers who entertained us. The most difficult part will be narrowing it down to a couple hundred for our photo album. We have enjoyed going through and printing some candid shots of friends and family to send in our thank-you cards.
My only regret is not booking Dan for engagement photos, as they would have looked wonderful, but despite this we didn't have any difficulty in feeling totally at ease with him on the wedding day.
Highly recommend to anyone wanting some fresh, timeless photos of any important occasion!
Lots of love,
B + E

We can’t even put into words…..

Dan is THE most approachable, helpful and dynamic photographer we came across. After a postponement for a wedding abroad, we were on the search for a photographer, and we can honestly say we struck lucky with Dan.
Whatever we needed, Dan would be there to capture the moment. His more alternative approach to imagery captured us immediately, and we are blown away by his work. Our guests instantly connected with him, he’s just that kind of guy! We cannot express into words how thankful and lucky we feel to have had Dan as our photographer, if your after a photographer with a unique eye, patience and outstanding communication, Dan is without a doubt, THE guy.
We could continue to write an extraordinary amount of positives about our experience, but his work speaks for itself.
Sincerely, thank you!

Friendly, relaxed and professional.

Daniel,

We can’t thank you enough for capturing our special day. I was initially so nervous about having a photographer since I feel incredibly awkward when being photographed, but from the instant you arrived, I felt as ease. You blended in and made it feel so effortless. I can’t stop looking at our wedding photos, you’ve really managed to capture those split moments in time that would have otherwise been missed.

I shall be singing your praises for a long time! Highly recommend.

Beautiful photos, lovely to work with - highly recommend!

We decided to hire Daniel McClane as we loved his obvious ability to capture beautiful candid photos as well as the more traditional couple and group shots, all with editing that was impactful/arty. Dan delivered this and more, and we loved having him there on the day with us - he made us feel so relaxed. The photos are incredible, and will definitely help us re-live this day over and over. We'd highly recommend Dan! Thank you so much! R+P

Captured our day perfectly!

Daniel McClane, worked with us and was so flexible and understanding throughout the experience of planning a wedding during a pandemic! He captured the individuality of the day perfectly, was so easy going to work with and we are amazed at the quality of the photos. So unique and quirky and they really show us as a couple and our family and friends. We especially love the photos in the hop fields behind the house, a tractor appearance and all the details. Thankyou so much Daniel, we would DEFINITELY recommend as a wedding photographer. Lucy & Iain Summers.
