Full Description
Life is all about the big moments and cheerful celebrations. Beautiful photographs serve as the ideal reminder of these spectacular occasions and can help recall those emotions and delight. My name is Darren, and I am a wedding and portrait photographer eager to capture moments that matter and fascinating people. With over 4 years in the industry, I have built a strong track record of producing stellar images that stand the test of time. My approach is to get to know my clients to capture their unique quirks and lively personalities. I love documenting the affectionate bonds and emotional connections between family and friends while maintaining a subtle, natural editing style designed to enhance having everyone looking their very best. I know that the presence of a camera can sometimes be a bit intimidating, but I like to create a relaxed setting and bring an informal style to my shoots. I favour photoshoots in interesting locations with appealing backgrounds that inspire a variety in storytelling. I like to take advantage of natural light where possible, though I am equally comfortable using professional backdrops and lighting in snug locations like your home. Whatever project you have in mind, I am all about bringing maximum value to you as my client. I maintain good communication throughout, stay open to ideas and feedback, and aim to deliver and service and experience that exceeds your investment in me. I would love the opportunity to exchange thoughts and learn more about your expectations. Feel free to get in touch with any questions – thanks for your time reading, and I look forward to hearing from you.

FAQ

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Initial conversations take place over the phone or a Zoom call where you can tell me all about your plans. With you booked in the next step is to get on location for a practice or engagement shoot. This helps us get comfortable with each other and is an ideal opportunity to give you some tips and practice for the wedding. There's plenty of contact throughout the weeks and months until the wedding where we'll have a final catch up over the phone a few days before to confirm timings and any last minute changes. On your wedding day, I'll be there from getting ready in the morning, easing you into having me around right through until the dancing is well underway. When it's all said and done, you'll get some preview images within a day before I get into the full edit and deliver your images on a personal online gallery a few weeks later.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

There is no number one photo. Every couple needs something a little different. For some it's the first kiss, others it's a simple side by side for Mum and Dad's wall. What matters most I I understand you both so that I can deliver the perfect photographs for you.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Couples who choose me as their wedding photographer, tend to be very relaxed and have a little bit of fun in them. So my wedding photos reflect their personality. With that said, I always look to create something a little different or special for each couple. Whether that's a shot through a window, reflected in a mirror or the groom giving the bride a piggy back, I always aim to give every couple something unique to them.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Forget about the rain and enjoy it. Every supplier you have on hand has handled rain before so you'll be taken care of on that side - just focus on each other and soaking in (sorry, couldn't resist) a magical day that tends to fly past.

Describe how you got into photography.

Like many people who pick up a 'big' camera for the first time, my reason was my daughter. I wanted to document her with the best possible camera and since smartphone cameras were not even close to good back then, a DSLR was the answer. From there I got addicted, shooting landscapes and occasional portraits for family before a friends asked me to do a commercial shoot to help him out, from there I never looked back. From there it was about finding my niche which turned out to be wedding photography, and I've been working weekends ever since.
