When it comes to a wedding I know that this is one of the most important days of your life and I feel it should be treated as such. My photographs will capture the different elements of the day in a way that reflects the individual atmosphere that every wedding, by nature, has. I will work with you before the day to find out as much as possible about you and your particular approach to your wedding.
This ensures that I know and understand your arrangements, expectations and desires so that I can include them in my own approach. I take a mixture of both classically arranged photos and more natural reportage-style shots to capture the full range of events and atmosphere of the day , however the exact balance of these can be adjusted to suit every couple.
I am aware that not everyone is comfortable being the centre of attention and seeing a camera every moment of the day can make a happy day turn into a stressful one. For these situations I aim to disappear into the background as much as possible amongst your guests whilst still ensuring that you have beautiful photos at the end of the day you can cherish for ever.

I love the spontaneity of the day. No two weddings are exactly the same and it is so easy to get caught up in the joy and happiness of a newly married couple.
Happy to travel, please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Dominic put us at ease right from the start, we first spoke via Facebook video chat and was surprised by how easy it was. Dominic was so helpful and really listened to our questions, he wasn't in a rush to leave or make sure he was booked. We spoke about the benefits of booking a photographer for half a day or full day, our budget, venue and guests.
Dominic kept us informed throughout the process of what we needed to do and what the timeline was - he gave us helpful guidance for the amount of group photos needed (we went for about 10) and explained what his role would be on the day.
On our wedding day Dominic & Maccy (second photographer) were at the venue, Wadhurst Castle before I had arrived (I was getting ready in the venue) around 9.30am - and we weren't getting married until 2.30pm. He checked out the venue on the day for the best photographic places taking into account the weather conditions, our requests and the interests of the guests. As it was 30 degrees he wanted to ensure that our group photos went as smoothly as possible and we weren't stood in solid sunshine for too long!
Having two photographers for the whole day meant that nothing was missed - it has been incredible to look back through the photos and see that they really did capture the day and emotion.
I would most definitely recommend Dominic and his team - you won't get such a helpful, relaxed and clued up photographer any where else.
Thank you Dominic Smith Photography!
Dominic was excellent, we first noticed his photos at a fayre and loved his natural style. His ability to capture a moment without the people even noticing. He was also the only photographer that didnt hound us for a deposit and allowed us time to browse his albums and make our minds up in our time. Throughout the whole process Dominic allowed us to chose our style and how we wanted him to behave on the day. He kept us updated with the arrival date of our actual photos and the final presentation and USB gift box was amazing. The photo quality and range was brilliant. He captured some absolutely stunning moment of our day.
What an amazing photographer, we love every single one of our wedding photos ans couldn't have asked for any more!
