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!

Delighted with our photos!

We just received our final photos from Danielle and we couldn't be happier! She has captured the day beautifully - family and friends have commented on how perfectly she reflected the mood and happiness of the day.

Danielle has been so thoughtful and supportive throughout - we had to move dates and venue multiple times! - taking everything in her stride and really listening to what we were aiming for. She has a talent for making people feel comfortable and getting the best out of the scene - such a calming and charming influence.

Thank you, Danielle, for giving us such lovely memories to look back on and for making the whole process so smooth.

Stunning photography

Danielle was amazing. We were looking for a wedding photographer that focused on family and Danielle was perfect. She made us feel comfortable and it felt so natural to be around her. We'd recommend Danielle to anyone who loves naturally beautiful photographs that capture love and family.

Danielle is professional and lovely!

We had our wedding during covid, so you can imagine the stress that we were under.
Danielle was one of the only things that was consistent and unwavering. She checked in on us regularly and made sure that her service was still brilliant, regardless of the difficulties we faced.
She does all these really personal things for couples along the way which made the build up great.
On the day she worked with us and was really good at catching the best moments on the day. We love the photos and they are exactly the style we wanted. It was all really natural and caught us genuinely smiling.
We had an engagement shoot before the day which really helped us relax as we hate having our photos taken.
We genuinely couldn’t of wished for more from a photographer and we would recommend to all our friends and family.

If magic is real, Danielle has it!

We cannot recommend Danielle highly enough. From stumbling across her website back in 2019, video chatting, booking in, Instagram stalking (sorry about that), on / off / maybe on / definitely on & finally our Covid Wedding Danielle is just part of the elite.

The communication, the technology used and the little touches that Danielle has along the journey are just so unique and special. As a couple who are just not into posing, Danielle's style captured our day perfectly. There are moments in photos that I can remember how I felt just looking at them. And there is something so so special in that.

Not only is Danielle an amazing photographer she is just such a wonderful person and I can't imagine having spent my day with anyone else. If I'd had things my way (thanks again Covid) Danielle would have been sitting with us all for our Afternoon Tea, because she was part of our day, not just a witness to it.

Reading through her blog on our day & her sneak peak photos only a week after our wedding day was just such a lovely way to revisit the day and have a little part of it to hold while we waited for our photos.

There are so many wonderful things Danielle provides throughout the process and the journey, and as much as I would love to share them all, I know that anyone considering booking Danielle deserves to experience them the same way we did.

I hope it's okay to say that I now consider you a friend, thank you Danielle, for everything.

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.
