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 found Danielle initially on Instagram and she has been an absolute dream!
She was really helpful in giving us tips on how to make sure we had the most perfect images for our special day. Danielle’s style is wonderful and she took such beautiful natural pictures of all our guests.
I cannot recommend Danielle enough as a wedding photographer, she is such a wonderful and talented person! We are so please with all of our images, and our book is incredible!!

Feeling incredibly lucky to have had Danielle as our wedding photographer!

I honestly could not have been more over the moon to have had Danielle as our wedding photographer. We had to postpone our wedding 4 times, and Danielle was continuously so helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. When our wedding day finally come around, she made us feel at ease and comfortable with being in front of the camera and we could not be more pleased with the photos. We quickly got some sneak peaks and all the photos back within the promised time frame. I feel so lucky that we got Danielle and the memories captured in the photos are amazing. I could not recommend Danielle enough, thank you so much. We have also just received our final package with the USB with all the photos on - I will not ruin the surprise for when you receive yours, but it is so beautiful and a lovely touch.

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.
