Hi I’m Ashley Davenport or ‘Ash Dav’ However in the case of my wife, Helen, it’s normally “Ash, can you please put down the camera and look at this,” Fortunately we’ve been together for 10 years and so she’s used to seeing me with a camera in my hand. That’s unless it’s a dire situation (the Sat-nav’s failed and we’re about to drive into some cows) she mostly ignores it.
When it comes to photography, I love taking images that capture people at their best. Especially when you can surprise them with a side of themselves they didn’t even know existed. Photography is a huge part of who I am and for me, wedding photography is the crème de la crème. Its the hardest type of photography as you only get one chance!
So my type of photography is all about three words, Creative, Fun & Emotional. ‘Creative’ – Every couple is totally different that why I believe it is so important to be creative, capturing weddings in the same way week in week out would turn dull really quickly for me and my couples. Being creative means I do not follow a set list of shots and do not spend hours searching Pinterest looking for something ‘cool’ or ‘hip’. ‘Fun’ – No matter what type of wedding you are planning I guess one of the main objectives (besides tying the knot) is that it should be ‘fun’. Therefore it is really important that the images represent this. ‘Emotional’ – My main purpose is to capture a distinct set of images which transport the bride and groom back to the day and allow them to feel the same exactly the same emotion they feel at that point in time. If that all sounds good to you drop me a line and I would be thrilled to hear about your plans and how you feel I could be a part of your amazing day.
What is not to love about Weddings...? For me its the best job in the world. I get unlimited access to the most special day in most peoples life and get the opportunity to capture images so children of the couple can feel what it was like when mum and dad got married all those years ago!
Talk to your potential photographer first before making any bookings. Understand what they are all about and why the shoot weddings and see if there is a connection between you. Finally make sure he/she is someone you would want to have a beer (or Gin and Tonic in my case) with.

Our day was a year ago now, I am very disorganised with reviews!... But now is probably a great time to review. We've had our first anniversary and my sister is now engaged. Life is motoring on but when. I look back on my phone/ our wall at our wedding photos they alway takes me back to the moment. They are real time real life shots which transport me to that feeling and to the atmosphere of the day. Not only that, but they are beautiful. And now.... And this must be the hugest confirmation of how wonderful Ash is... My sister has booked him for her wedding. He's photographed her as a bridesmaid.... Next year.... A bride! :)
Just want to say a HUGE thank you to Ash! We just got our wedding pictures yesterday and they are stunning! They arrived in the most beautiful box with the USB stick and some other treats! The presentation was stunning and it really did make us feel special. Ash was amazing on the day - really chilled! I highly recommend the photobooth! It was a great add on and such fun! Everyone got involved - even granny! Ash was really discreet throughout the day and when looking at the pictures I didn't even realise he was right next to us sometimes! We wanted a really natural feel to the pictures and that's exactly what we got! I just want to jump straight back in to them! Ash is a really great guy and if you're looking for a photographer then he's the one!!!
