Capturing moments that tell a story of love and happiness and life...

Hi, My name is Danielle and I am a photographer based in Essex but I photograph weddings all over! Even abroad.

For me, a Wedding should tell a story… a story of a couple from day one, of how you got to where you are now, the magic of your Wedding Day and what the future holds for you both.

Wedding Photography should capture this story and re-tell it through photographic memories that you are able to cherish forever. Capturing those real moments of joy, warmth and intimacy between yourselves and your guests, creating images that stir these emotions each and every time you look back on them. Documenting every detail; the dress, the flowers, the rings, the suit, and all the little things that you’ve gone to lengths to put in place, to ensure that your day is just perfect.

And capturing all of these things photographically, to tell your story, is exactly what I do best.

How would you describe your style?

Documentary style is a big part of my work and involves me working quietly, taking natural, storytelling shots as all the wonderful moments of the day unfold. As for creating beautiful portraits together with the two of you, I feel it’s important to take some time to create slightly more guided shots as well. Some gentle direction can create pure, elegant and truly romantic images. I want your photographs to be an authentic and sincere reflection of the day.

What do you love about weddings?

I love everything weddings! I honestly feel so privileged to do a job that I love very single day. Weddings are such beautiful, joyous environments to be a part of. To share the happiest day of a couple's life with them is truly special and I am forever grateful to each and every couple for choosing me to be there with them.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

If I can offer you one piece of advice when planning your wedding it’s this: never compromise on your memories. Weddings are glorious, joyous celebrations that seem to pass by in a flash for so many newlyweds, as they experience a blissful amnesia for part of it. Authentic and timeless photography allows you to re-live those precious moments and enjoy those you didn’t experience first hand. It’s the one thing you will have to look back on from your day and feel the excitement, love and joy once more, each and every time you look at them!

We are absolutely thrilled

We have very recently worked with Danielle (May 2018) and have just received our beautiful pictures back. We are absolutely thrilled with the finished items and can’t wait to have them hanging in our home. Danielle was great to work with on the day and was such a trooper taking pictures of us in the pouring rain.

Professional and very personal approach

Danielle won us over with her portfolio and her professional and very personal approach. She made us feel comfortable throughout the planning process and on the day. We were able to discuss everything in advance and Danielle had great suggestions for best shots and was very flexible on the day. Danielle and her assistant captured the atmosphere of the day perfectly and made everyone feel at ease. Danielle always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to take the perfect picture whilst blending in with the guests. Thank you Danielle for capturing our day at the perfect moments in the perfect way.

She really captures the story of the day

We recently had Danielle for our Wedding Photographer, having been recommended her from previous friends and clients. From the initial contact to our meetings before, to the big day and beyond Danielle was just fantastic! Every little detail was covered and nothing was too much trouble. It made our day so effortless and easy. I have had loads of people comment since the wedding how lovely and friendly Danielle was. The photo details are just amazing and she really captures the story of the day not just generic wedding shots. We cannot wait to work with her again for our future moments. The photographic memories she provides are just perfect.

Her calm and friendly nature made the whole process very relaxed and easy.

Danielle did a fantastic job of our wedding photos. We are so happy with them, they are a perfect reflection of the day. In addition, she was so easy to work with from day 1. The extra touches she provided throughout the process were lovely, and her calm and friendly nature made the whole process very relaxed and easy, especially as my husband hates having his photo taken and was never asked to do anything awkward or overly staged. I would recommend her to anyone!
