Meet Your Wedding Photographer

Photography, guitars, coffee and cake. And a onesie.

Kent Wedding Photographer, The Early Years

Hey you! Yes, you!

I know who you are.

Shit, sounds creepy, right? Don’t worry, it’s not like that – let me explain.

You’re one half of a young, gorgeous fun-loving couple, and you love nothing better than just letting your hair down and enjoying life. You’re planning your wedding to embrace this sense of fun – you’re not interested in standing around for hours having photographs taken (hey, who needs that?) Yeah, you don’t mind the odd breathtaking portrait of the two of you to remind you of how amazing you both are, but on your big day you just want to get on with the serious business of enjoying yourself (pass the Prosecco…) That’s where I come in – after a while you’ll forget I’m even there, allowing you to party like there’s no tomorrow, and casting off any shackles of self consciousness.

Oh, and by the way – in case you’re wondering. Yes, that’s me on the left. Butter wouldn’t melt, right? Of course, I don’t look like that now. That would just be silly. And I absolutely in no way whatsoever own a onesie, let alone one with a cute pussy cat on the chest pocket. Nope. Not me. Uh-huh.

"Dan was our absolutely brilliant wedding photographer and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him because I simply couldn’t fault him if I tried. We’re so happy with the photos he took, he managed to capture the best moments...I couldn't be happier with our choice of photographer, he was excellent!"

So what’s this all about?

Nobody deserves bland, boring wedding images where everyone’s standing in a row and staring blankly at the camera, wishing they were at the bar / somewhere else.

When you book me to photograph your wedding, this happens:

  1. You’re instantly sexier (fact!)
  2. Somewhere in Kent, a small choir bursts into song in celebration
  3. You’ll have me from dawn til dusk (well, from getting ready until the dancefloor has well and truly kicked off, anyway)
  4. You’ll marvel as I blend in with your guests and have a laugh and a joke with them – most of the time you’ll forget I’m even there!
  5. You’ll receive amazing photographs of all the bits you’ll miss because you’re schmoozing and mingling (I don’t have eyes in the back of my head, but my glasses prescription is excellent).
  6. You’ll have the option of receiving a stunning heirloom wedding album you’ll treasure and adore for the rest of your life
  7. You’ll also receive a 100% guarantee that you’ll absolutely adore your wedding photos and the service provided – or you’ll receive all your money back, no questions asked!

"Dan was friendly, worked very hard and was unobtrusive throughout. He took photographs that were of the highest quality and captured all the special moments of the day. We highly recommend him!"

So who am I and what’s my story?

I’ve always felt compelled to create, ever since I was a kid. I remember being addicted to drawing pictures of Superheroes: Iron Man, Spider Man and Superman were lovingly etched onto paper, copied from my well-read and extremely crinkled Marvel and DC comics.

My other passion in life apart from photography is music, and I can remember learning how to play the theme from Chariots of Fire by ear when I was 10. Watch your ass, Vangelis. We were on holiday in Florida staying with my Mum’s Auntie and cousin, and they had the funkiest keyboard I’d ever seen with buttons everywhere. So I pressed every button I could and was fascinated by the sound that came out (my Mum told me off because she was convinced I was going to break the keyboard, but hey, genius isn’t created without experimentation, right…?!)

Fast-forward some years later and I discovered the electric guitar (my neighbours LOVE ME), and thus began a musical journey that continues to this day. I’ve been writing songs for a number of years now, and have even been featured on a couple of compilation albums back in the day.

I remember receiving a Polaroid instant camera for Christmas many years ago, and was blown away by the photo appearing before my very eyes (imagine how I felt when digital photography came along…blimey…) Photography is deceptively simple – yes, it’s essentially pressing a button – but there are a multitude of creative decisions to be made before that moment arrives.

Wedding photography allows me to stoke this creative fire, and also allows me to meet and work alongside people from all walks of life. Not only that, it allows me to create something that makes them unbelievably happy – treasured photographs from one of the most amazing days of their lives. What’s not to love about that?
