We ABSOLUTELY are IN LOVE with our wedding photos!
I don’t even know where to start... We ABSOLUTELY are IN LOVE with our wedding photos! It’s been 10 months since and we must of looked at them dozens of times since we received them! Finally have them up on our walls (it looks like we are truly those people who have never got over their wedding day) but we’re so happy with every single picture! Everytime I see any of them it takes us on this huge emotional amazing rollercoaster that was our wedding day. Having followed Darren & his work (like a crazy stalker) for a long time because of the pure beauty from his work.... I was in awe of it all. As a wedding photographer myself, I knew how big of a decision this was. Then came the day that I met Darren at his studio he made a huge impression on my husband & I straight away and instantly clicked (which I know is SUCH an important feeling to have when booking your wedding photographer) I loved the way he worked & the way he so effortlessly made us feel comfortable. Darren was amazing throughout the booking process, especially with all the endless questions, requests and suggestions from myself he was always kind & happy to help! Great prices and packages and we was sold instantly. We booked it & the rest as they say is history! He arrived on the day look dapper (as usual) and hopped straight into it, I’m not going to lie I was SUPER nervous being on the other end of the camera � I was, however, very aware of the camera but within 10mins I couldn’t even tell he was there (I was actually abit worried that he wasn’t there at some points) THEY COVERED EVERYTHING & more!!! We had such a laugh and a joke with Darren & Clare, whilst they remained super professional at all times, his artistic eye never seemed to stop for the entirety of the day. Need less to say I was VERY impressed!!! We clicked instantly on a professional level (before he even knew I was a potential client anyway which to me is always key). I can happily recommend him to ANYONE now (I sort of shout it from the rooftops at the moment) not only on a professional level but now on personal experience. Our photos is definitely something in the top 4 Things I would save in a fire now (after my husband, kids & Wedding vid) � I love it! They are bloody beautiful. He’s captured every aspect of our day perfectly. He’s summed up our families and the love we have for eachother amazingly well. I didn’t think I could love my husband anymore than I do already but after looking through our wedding photos it’s made me fall in love with him a million times more!!! seeing our love and the biggest day of our lives eternalised in photo form � It’s AMAZING! So in conclusion- if your reading this looking for reviews for potientially booking DB Photography Sussex for your big day .... look no further. I work in the wedding industry and I truly believe he is one of BEST in the business!!! Not only have we got beautiful photos thanks to Darren after the most amazing day of our lives but we’ve also got a friend for life in you Darren! Thank you soooooo soooo soooo much! So sorry it’s taken me so long to write this! � I thought I wrote one already

Amazing amazing amazing! Darren and Steph made our wedding day the best!
Amazing amazing amazing! Darren and Steph made our wedding day the best! So attentive helping me with my veil, train, hair and capturing mine and my husbands special day with our friends and family, even down to getting ready with a house full of women. Darren could not have been any more helpful and calming! Steph was also fantastic in a house full of groomsmen while they were getting ready, could not recommend them enough just amazing.

Great Ote Hall Review
Darren and Steph made us feel so at ease on our wedding day. They are highly professional and captured our day just as we wanted. We are so pleased with our photos and it’s now the hard task of deciding which ones to print. All of our family and friends have been singing their praise and we would highly recommend. Thank you for giving us such wonderful memories. Mr and Mrs Hobman.

Slaugham Place Review
From our first meeting with Darren, we knew straight away that he was the right photographer for our Wedding! When we first spoke to him, he was so relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable and made such an effect to get to know us and what our wedding was all about. He was very clear and informative and explained everything perfectly. From the initial contact, the engagement shoot and the Wedding day, Darren has been an absolute pro, who is a joy to be around. Darren has a lovely relaxed demeanour and a good eye for shots in locations he hadn't been to before. He made every experience very comfortable and enjoyable. The photos Darren and his colleague Steph took were more beautiful than we could have imagined! The quality was incredible and he has a very artistic eye and really managed to capture every detail of our big day so that when we look through the photos, it really feels like we are reliving the day. We couldn't recommend Darren enough. Thank you Darren and Steph!!! Nicki & Danny, August 2017
