Full Description
Its All About You! Capture the day I understand that your wedding day is your day, it’s all about you so I acknowledge that and take it into consideration. I’m hired by you so please don’t be afraid to ask me anything. I photograph your special day as it happens, as non-intrusive as possible & capture wonderful moments unfold to eventually be looked back upon with great memories. Each wedding has it’s own unique touch of style and decoration that really makes the day magical. Each of my packages all come with my personal attention which include a pre-wedding meet to discuss thoughts, get to know each other and have a chat. I’m a very relaxed, bubbly friendly person who is easy to speak too! All of which has a huge impact with your family & guests on your special day. "To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."

We are always amazed at his creativity
Dans photographs capture the fun and essence of the modern wedding We are always amazed at his creativity and his photos will be treasured keepsakes to come. I have worked with Dan on many occasions, he’s unobtrusive always concentrating on getting that perfect shot capturing those moments of love and happiness effortlessly. As an award winning Dorset makeup artist I have worked with many local photographers and Dans natural ability to capture just what you asked for with ease is worth it’s weight in gold . Thoroughly recommend, lovely chap ! Book now . Amazing Face Dorset 2018

He loves what he does and is good at it!
You won't often get another photographer recommending the competition, but in Dan's case I'm happy to make an exception. Why? Well, to put it simply, he loves what he does, is good at it and, annoyingly, is a really nice chap

Do not rush, take your time to look around and ALWAYS meet your photographer before and request to see an up to date portfolio! Make sure you 'click' together and feel comfortable

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

At an undersea themed wedding the Bride & Groom placed photo's of lots of different sea creatures around and then gave a list to all the children to go around and try to find them all! Brilliant idea to keep the children entertained, even had a few adults doing it!

My Grandad was a Wedding Photographer which got me intrigued into taking photo's in general I then spent 2 years every day taking Landscapes of mainly Dorset & shot a few friends / family Weddings then word of mouth spread and now I find myself often fully booked each year in the wedding season!
