Our day, Our very mad, fun, special day.

David made our experience a very smooth ride. We met during an open evening at our chosen wedding venue and he oozed all the right things. Charismatic, experienced, he walked us through the unknown with his easy going manner. That contrasted with is precision bombing on composing the formal photos and his discretion and invisibility when capturing the casual stuff during the diverse events of our unforgettable nuptials. Unforgettable, in part, due to him.
Thank you, David.
And how did you get the weather to be so good? We still think it was you behind cloudless skies!! I did not see you in Harry Potter.

Amazing photos!!

David is such an amazing photographer, who really took the time to discuss our vision for our wedding and was so supportive throughout the entire planning process. He is so experienced in knowing which shots work best and the photos turned out absolutely beautiful. After our wedding, he was so helpful in putting together a lovely album. We highly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding!!

Caswell House Wedding - August

Wow, wow, wow!

We cannot express enough how grateful we are that David shot our photos for our wedding. From meeting him at Caswell House open day, we were blown away by his professional manner and talent. After having to postpone a year due to COVID, David accommodated us and made things stress free and we were so glad we could still have him shoot our wedding. On the day, David bought fantastic energy to everyone around him and we had many comments from our guests and family about how brilliant our photographer was. He had fantastic rapport with everybody (including my lively bridesmaids!) and everyone felt at ease in his company - even those we knew hated having their photos taken. David kept the momentum and energy going even during some parts of the day when it was raining (some brides may feel this is their worst nightmare to have rain on the day but he made this fun and helped us see all the positives in this!) Luckily, we had a break in the rain and he captured even more fantastic shots.

We have been lucky enough to see a sneak peek of our photos and we absolutely love them - from what we have seen they already capture the emotion and laughter from the day and we are so excited to see more!

Thank you so much David (and to your lovely assistant Helen too!) - we cannot recommend your services enough!

A Magical Wedding in Windsor

David was our first choice for a photographer. It turned out to be a spectacular choice.

Our wedding took place in Windsor. We knew that we must find a very professional photographer in order to capture the uniqness and magic of the town and selected venues, as well as capture our special moments. David did all that - and more.

As we are not from the UK, the process of planning our wedding from afar was challenging, but David helped us make it as easy as possible. We've had a number of video chats and email correspondences about our requests and desires, and David helped us focus and build a great pre-wedding photoshoot schedule. He also pointed us towards various beautiful locations in Windsor to choose from.

David was always professional, understanding and flexible, and he explained everything in great detail, which was very important for us. At the day of our marriage, he was there with us from 8:30 AM, made us feel comfortable and enjoy every moment of the pre-wedding photoshoot. He also made many great suggestions for photos.

The photos taken by David were everything we'd hoped for and more. They are simply stunning. David also took care of editing the photos, he guided us through the album-creation process and showed us examples from past weddings. It's unbelievable how high quality and beautiful his albums are, and we can't wait to receive ours!

For conclusion, we truly recommend hiring David for any event. He knows his field inside-out, his products are beautiful and his service is warm and professional. He managed to capture the magic and atmosphere of Windsor beautifully. Brava, David!

Perfect moments captured at Kirtlington Park

It was almost 2 years between us first meeting David, having our pre-shoot and finally getting married. The dreaded Covid led to 3 date changes and rescheduling hell! It was a painful experience but David was so nice and reassuring with every change and whilst many of his clients were going through the same situation, his approach and correspondence was very personal. I mention all of this just to express how nice David is and importantly he makes you feel very comfortable - you need to feel comfortable with your photographer! Hardly naturals in front of the camera we went for David's pre-shoot which absolutely served its purpose - we got to know David much better and felt a lot more at ease for the big day. We love David's style and his accolades speak for themselves and we had complete trust in him. Having received our photos, his skill in capturing those moments that could be gone in a second is unquestionable. David has a great energy and really got the crowd going for the big group shot - such a great photo! In the nicest possible way, David blends in to the background on the day - he is very discreet and unobtrusive whilst managing to capture those perfect shots at every stage of the day. From an organisation, correspondence and responsiveness point of view - all perfect and we had no issues - Thank you David and Helen! Would highly recommend!

The Best Photographer

David captured our wedding last year at Caswell House. After getting in touch with him in a relatively short time before our plan for a smaller COVID wedding we knew he was the photographer we wanted. He was very professional on the day and captured the day so perfectly and sensitively down to every last detail! Going through all of our pictures David has sent us over, we are totally BLOWN AWAY!! We cannot recommend him highly enough and we cannot thank him enough. Thank you David.

Love Mr & Mrs Orchard x

Must have photographer!

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was having David as our photographer. He has produced the most amazing pictures of our day that we can cherish forever. At every part of the process David has been more than helpful offering expert advice and making us feel very comfortable around the camera. His passion for photography is infectious and his attention to detail is second to none. We would highly recommend David Bostock!

Book David NOW!!!!!!!! He is superb

David is absolutely fantastic! From the very moment my husband and I met him at our initial consultation we felt at ease. He did a brilliant pre wedding photo shoot for us, which made us both feel really comfortable being photographed.

David made us both feel relaxed on our wedding day and took the most beautiful photographs. I can't recommend him highly enough, he is amazing!

Fab

From the first meeting with David we knew he was different to the other photographers we'd met with. His professionalism coupled with a fab portfolio and genuine excitement about our wedding convinced us he was the right photographer for our wedding. He didn't disappoint either, we have a fab set of photos of our day and have struggled to pick which ones to put in the album. The whole service has been professional and extremely efficient and we have no doubt the final album will also be fantastic. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend him.

Surpassed our high expectations

David has given us exactly the pictures we were after of our wedding day. Intimate pictures that make you feel like you're seeing the day from the eyes of one of the guests rather than staid standard shots with no character or vibrancy. David himself is very jovial and his confidence in his art puts you at ease immediately. We would recommend at least going to visit him - for us, we both knew after 5 minutes that he would be perfect. Neither of us enjoys having our picture taken, but after we had been for our pre-wedding shoot with David, this was one aspect of our wedding that we were no longer worried about. On the day, David was the consummate professional and somehow got the absolute best out of our lovely surroundings despite somewhat inclement weather. As any couple planning their wedding has no doubt found out very quickly, it is hard work wading through many distinctly average suppliers who think they can get away with charging similar amounts to those of far superior quality. However, we can assure you that David is definitely in the latter category. You have to place a particular trust in your wedding photographer and doing so with David took a huge weight off our mind.

We love the elegant and stylish pre-wedding photoshoot!

We had a wonderful time with David doing pre-wedding photoshoot at an Oxford college. David is very professional and efficient in capturing many outstanding photos in very short period of time; his re-touched/edited images are also in superb quality that both my fiancee and myself appreciate a lot. David's stylish, clean, and elegant shoot are probably the best photographer we found in Southeast England after surveying 20+ photographers to help us do the photoshooting.

Couldn't be happier!

What can we say? We are beyond thrilled with our wedding photos! David has truly captured our day to perfection and we couldn't be happier. We were a little nervous about the photography side of the day as neither of us are very confident in front of the camera, but David put us at ease and we actually loved the whole process! David has so much experience that we felt totally safe in his hands and he listened to what we wanted to get out of the photos and did exactly that. Couldn't recommend him highly enough!

High quality, beautiful photos

We have no hesitation in recommending David, we were so happy with the service, quality and value for money we got. We chose David because of the quality and style of photography, and because he knew our venue (in Oxfordshire) very well. At the pre-wedding shoot he quickly put us at ease and helped us to feel comfortable in front of the camera. We were impressed at how he took the time to find out what sort of couple we were and what kind of shots were important to us. On the day itself David was professional and efficient. He was unobtrusive but at the same time was able to quietly arrange people so we could get all the shots we wanted. Our formal shots took very little time (because we had discussed them previously) so we were able to return to our guests quickly. A number of our guests commented on how nice David was and how he made them feel at ease having their picture taken. We are so happy with our photographs and treasure our album - once we'd finally decided which ones to include! At every stage David responded to emails quickly. We would highly recommend The Bridal Photographer for your wedding photos.

The Best Photographer

It was a great pleasure to have David as a photographer at our wedding! Excellent job, we are extremely happy with the process and the end result. David has great experience and was providing a very valuable advice throughout the process. He stick to the deadlines and we did not have to wait for the photographs for a long time (important for non-patient brides:-).

Firstly, he organised a pre-wedding shoot at the venue. It allowed us to get to know each other and make sure we know what are the best spots at the venue.

All our guests and ourselves enjoyed photos being taken during the day. David made sure we are relaxed and managed to make plenty very natural beautiful photos. He is very pleasant and unobtrusive.

As a result we have plenty of fantastic photos (pre-wedding & wedding),a big beautiful leather album for ourselves and a smaller copies for our parents (which they love).

It was a hard work indeed to choose the best shoots for the album!

All our non-married friends who have been at our wedding say that they do not have a problem of choosing photographer for their weddings - they will invite David!

I would highly recommend David for your wedding!
