Overjoyed with our wedding photos
Dan is the ultimate professional. We loved working with him. From our first email exchange, through the entirety of our wedding, to the day we received our photos, he has been positive, energized, and committed at every moment. Months later, our guests still talk about how fun-loving and dedicated he was. He was both a bright and integral part of our day. Entrusting Dan to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I made.
Best. Photographer. Ever.
When we were searching for photographers, we were upfront about our borderline insane timeline (3 locations bouncing around London for 4 hours) and very specific shot list (which he adhered to unwaveringly–he even saved us from missing one of the most crucial shots of all!). Not only was Daniel up for the challenge, but ecstatic about it!
In the run up to the big day, Daniel set up a call to review our final timelines and shot list. He asked thoughtful qualifying questions throughout, leaving us with zero doubt that Daniel understood what we wanted and was the right guy for the job.
On the day, Daniel arrived early to the location to set up shots and stakeout locations. He was like a photography inspector gadget… he kept pulling out (big!) equipment from tool belts and a small backpack, we’ll never know how he managed it.
In posing us, Daniel was prescriptive without being intrusive, and efficient without feeling rushed. His creativity is amazing and his energy is infectious. You can tell he’s a perfectionist who loves what he does–he was constantly pushing for “just one more” or ushering us to another spot because “just quickly, this would look so great.” He had no issue literally stopping traffic (human or vehicular) to get the shot. My husband and I must’ve whispered “Daniel is great” to each other 100 times.
And the photos. Omg, JUST LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS. If pictures are normally worth 1,000 words, these are worth a million. Everyone we show these photos to, their jaws are on the floor. Daniel also included some fun behind-the-scenes shots that made us laugh and relive the chaos of the day.
Daniel was an integral part of the success of our London wedding, and hiring Daniel was the best decision we made, hands-down. We can’t wait to cover every inch of our house in these incredible photographs, thank you so much Daniel for capturing our day to perfection!!
Absolutely beautiful photos and a true professional!
Absolutely amazing photographer - in every way.
As you can imagine, being a destination wedding, we booked everything 'blind'. From the very first enquiry message to Dan he was very friendly, kind, professional and totally put our mind at ease.
On the day of the wedding I met Dan for the first time whilst having hair and make up etc. Straight away i knew I'd made the perfect choice as he, I, my mum, hair and make up ladies, all laughed and had an absolute ball - it was truly a mini party before the party!
During the day (which reached a sweltering 40 degrees!) He made sure to capture everything we wanted - the images are just stunning ? and the relaxed, fun atmosphere that we wanted for our wedding day jumps out from them.
He sang along, danced, laughed and felt so much a part of our day that our guests thought he was another guest.
We cannot recommend Dan enough - not only for his amazing talent, professionalism, and dedication, but also for his fun and kindness. The only thing in question were his dance moves ? - sorry Dan!
You will be amazed too if you choose Dan for your big day x x
(I have attached a couple of our favourite pics - one of which is us with the man himself).
Fun and professional
Dan was really supportive from beginning to end. We could not have wished for a better photographer at our wedding. Thank you so much again Dan.
My now husband and I spent many,many hours searching for the perfect photographer to capture the special moments of our day. With a specific upcoming fine art style combined with a realistic look proved very hard to find!
Dan was absolubtley amazing from the second we met him,we felt instantly relaxed and all of our guests felt welcomed and praised his professional work and down to earth, fun personality he has. Very organised throughout the day and captured the most amazing moments we will never forget.
The most important part, the photos themselves. Brilliantly detailed, Dan captured every moment we wanted and more. The best ones being the natural that we never even realised was happening.
We have hundreds of photos, and it was so hard to choose the ones to frame because each and every one of them was just magical.
Nearly a year on and I look through the photos on a daily basis, they are just amazing.
I cannot reccomend Dan enough!!!!!
Amazing photos & genuinely lovely guy
The absolute best!
Booking was a breeze and it was clear that my expectations would be met just from looking at his previous work. Dan and his co-photographer arrived on time on the day to the different locations and got straight to work. And even though Dan followed us around closely all day like a black fly, we didn't even notice he was there most of the time. I think that might be a skill you can't teach, a testament to how incredibly skilled Dan is.
It was SO worth every single penny and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to be in utter awe for years to come.
Amazing! Highly recommended!
Dan’s work really stood out to us prior to booking as the images in his portfolio were very clean, relaxed and of impeccable quality!
Dan was very responsive and proactive in the build up to our wedding day, he managed to know straight away what type of images we wanted captured along with all group images without me having to go into every detail.
On the day of our wedding as you can imagine in Cyprus it was warm! Dan got every complimentary angle, shot and moment you can think of, until you are there in person it’s eye opening to see what goes into those special shots especially in the heat which I couldn’t dream of achieving!
Dad is such a lovely guy, friendly, great laugh and was a big part of our wedding day! Our guests loved him ?
We couldn’t recommend him enough he captured the perfect photos and we are eternally great thankful ??❤️
Fantastic in every way!
Would recommend Dan to any couple hoping to work with a first class wedding photographer!
Can’t recommend Dan enough!x
