How would you describe your style?

I think my pictures say more about my style than I ever could - I make sure we have fun making the images and that then shows in the finished result. That way the pictures become unique to you - less posing and more prompting (and a bit of direction) so you both make the pictures just as much as I do.

What do you love about weddings?

I have actually heard wedding photographers say "[sigh]....another wedding on Saturday....same play with a different cast...I get bored doing weddings" and I think, well then you must be doing them wrong. Wedding photography has to be one of the most rewarding jobs ever - and one of the most demanding. A couple and their families have brought you on board to capture memories of a one-time event, with all the fun and emotions that come with it. As their photographer you become intimately involved in their day, from calming nerves (apparently I am very good at this!) to fixing buttonholes and ties, and making sure the day's schedule is adhered to. You honestly feel like a new family friend by the end of the day.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

I suppose the bottom line is whether you like their work or not. Ask them if they can show you a full coverage of a wedding day, from soup to nuts. Try and get a feel for who they are and whether you think you will all get on, and if they offer a pre-wedding meet or shoot then take them up on it - I do lots of these and they make such a difference. A surprising number of brides and grooms don't think they look good in pictures, and I guess people don't look at their best taken on a phone at arms length! Let your photographer guide you and help you to relax. I have lots of ways of doing this (hint: I never tell a bride or groom to "smile". Instead, I make them smile....)

Just the Best!

David took the most amazing photos of our wedding, bringing with him the most beautiful energy. He managed to keep both my husband and I comfortable and calm throughout the day. We were so unbelievably grateful to have him with us.
I can not recommend David enough.

Great guy and fabulous shots !

Can’t recommend David enough ! We had a small elopement wedding with just us, our two witnesses and David. He was great company and made us all feel very relaxed. Above all else he produced lots of amazing shots of our special day that we will treasure forever.

David become part of our family, he organised everyone and the end result the photos were gorgeous.
