    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!

    Fantastic and professional

    David became a very good friend throughout our dealings with him. He was kind and thoughtful. He is a brilliant photographer and a good man
    Our album is one of our most treasured memories.

    David Bostock Photography's reply:

    Dear Dianne
    It was a total pleasure to be able to capture your special day for you and as one of the few COVID-19 weddings that were able to happen in 2020 in many ways extra special. I'm so happy that the images were everything you hoped they would be and memories you will be able to look at again and again in your wedding album.
    Warmest Regards
    David

    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!

    Excellent

    David photographed our Marriage Blessing at Balliol College at April last year. David did a brilliant job at capturing the spirit of the day. Because we did a Pre Wedding shoot with David we knew exactly what to expect on the day and we look relaxed and at ease in our photos as a result. David provides a first class service at very reasonable rates.

    Simply amazing....

    David stood in to cover our wedding at very very short notice as one of our children developed chicken pox in the week prior to the wedding and the photographer we had booked was pregnant and at risk from the pox!
    I had bought my dress from the fantastic Ellie Sanderson bridal boutique so David knew of my situation and came to the rescue.
    I do not have the words to describe both the service and the quality of beautiful photography that David provided. Both were more than i could have imagined possible! Our photographs are stunning, they capture every smile, every tear and every moment of our amazing day to absolute perfection! Having spent a lot of time in the Ellie Sanderson boutique I can honestly say that i am not just biased about my own photographs as David's work is displayed in there and all of it is fantastic! I would highly recommend David, his work, his manner and the level of service really are second to none. Married April 2012

    Bride + David's photos = HAPPY

    We chose David as our photographer after he did a fantastic job at my sister's wedding in 2010. We were not disappointed! We've just got our photos back from our wedding in April 2012 and we are really delighted with them. David has such a knack for catching the little moments, the unseen little stories of our day. When you go through them afterwards it's like reliving the day and seeing all the things you inevitably miss as a bride and groom. I found myself grinning like a loon! His photos are gorgeous, with a wonderful mix of posed and unposed shots, colour and black and white. He's also really discreet as a photographer, just blending in with the guests and being completely unobtrusive, yet missing nothing! I know we are going to have fun choosing the shots for our album, he has really helped us to produce a beautiful set of photo memories to treasure. We would thoroughly recommend David to any bride and groom looking for beautiful, natural and high class wedding photography.

    Amazing photographs

    David was the photographer at our winter wedding and he has done an amazing job. We love the result.
    Especially the pre-wedding shoot at our wedding location has helped us a lot to get to know David and it allowed us to convey what were looking and hoping for.
    In our case we did not like too many staged pictures. We like action and lots of play with depth and in and out of focus, which is exactly what he has managed to do!
    The daylight on a winter wedding is extremely limited. Therefore we had to rush. Despite this, David stayed calm which had the right effect on us!
    We would highly recommend him!
