SPELLBINDING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

NATURAL | ELEGANT | UNIQUE

My photography is about telling your story.
Your wedding day.

Capturing the knowing glances, the nerves, the pride, those unexpected moments, the joy, laughter, and the tears. I never forget that it’s your special day and maintain an unobtrusive presence, letting you relax and get swept away with the moments.

 

Above all, I aim to provide you with a fabulous set of photographs that you will treasure, documenting every detail of your wedding day.

Wedding Photographer of the Year 2019

I was delighted to have won Wedding Photographer of the Year 2019, South Central Region by the esteemed Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA)

Master of Wedding Photography Winner

Photos are judged at the highest level by a jury consisting of experienced international wedding photographers. This prevents photographers with a large social network gathering more votes for their photo.

Wedisson Number 1 Photographer for 2019

Wedisson Awards are the home of the best wedding photographs from all over the world. This year I was awarded number 1 photographer of the year, after picking up the most awards through 2018.

YOUR INVESTMENT

The cake will get eaten, the flowers will wilt, the wedding photography lasts forever

Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life together and the result of much planning, discussions and consideration. You’ve put an enormous amount of time and energy into crafting a day that is personal to you and your partner.

My job is to capture the joy and emotion, the moments that matter and those that you won’t have even seen, preserving them for you, your family and your friends.

Once the day is over and the details have all been enjoyed your photographs will live on and provide you with a lasting memory of your special day to hand down to the next generation.

If you would like me to capture your day I will do my best to make you feel confident in front of camera, ensure your guests feel comfortable and that you have a wonderful collection of images to remember your day.

I can only be part of around 25 weddings every year, each one receives the same attention to detail and editing style seen on my site.

 

If you’re planning a mid-week or shorter wedding then let me know. I will pull together a custom price for you.

OPTIONAL EXTRAS

(if not already included in your package)

SECOND PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

IMAGES THAT CANNOT BE DELIVERED WITH JUST ONE PHOTOGRAPHER

A second photographer offers you extended coverage of images to include the groom preparation, additional candid shots of guests during the day and alternative perspectives for key moments and reactions.

£400 for a full day

PRE WEDDING SHOOT

GET COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF CAMERA AND CAPTURE SOME MEMORABLE IMAGES OF A LOVELY TIME IN YOUR LIVES

 

If you are a little camera shy then it’s worth considering an engagement or pre-wedding shoot to settle your nerves and get you more comfortable in front of camera.

On top of that you’ve got to know me a little better, feel more relaxed in my company and less conscious of the camera, meaning we’ll get better shots on the wedding day.

£400 for 2.5 hours

ALBUMS & PHOTO PRODUCTS

PROFESSIONAL ALBUMS, PRINTS, WALL ART AND FRAMES 

I offer an excellent range of high quality and professional photographic products that can be purchased after you’ve seen your images. Often couples choose one photograph that means a lot to them for framing or wall art. 

I highly recommend couples talk to me about wedding albums – it’s the single best decision you will make to keep the memories of your wedding day alive. So many couples tell me how the album is a family heirloom. It’s all too easy to ignore an album and think that a memory stick of images will suffice.

NEXT STEPS

READY TO MOVE FORWARD?

Great. For all my potential bookings I like to have a quick call to run through your plans for the wedding, and to get to know you a little better. You can ask me any questions you may have about the day and my approach, anything you think I should know about or any worries you may have.

I tend to do these sessions on Skype so we start to break down barriers and get to know each other. It means you will feel more comfortable with me on your wedding day and we get more natural images.

Drop me an email or complete a contact from to let me know your availability.

OR WANT TO FIND OUT MORE?

Sure thing. I have put heaps of information and images on my style and approach to wedding photography. Just scroll down the page and read through.

If you’re still not sure and just want to chat to me to make sure I’m the right photographer for you, then that’s completely understandable and I’m happy to chat without any commitment on your behalf. Just email me or complete a contact form letting me know you’d to talk things through.

 

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE MOST

TREASURED FAMILY HEIRLOOM

ABOUT ME & MY ETHOS

I believe photography is about the emotion images evoke, be that laughter, tears or nostalgia. Capturing these moments for wedding couples is a privilege and I have a profound sense of responsibility documenting the essence and details for you to hold onto.

It’s important to me I get to know my couples, understand their journey and how they met, what’s important to them and why they’re getting married.

You spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day so it’s vital you get along and feel comfortable in each others company. My easy-going nature helps people relax around me, and in turn means I get a more natural and real imagery.

I pride myself on delivering above and beyond, not only delivering photography that moves and delights people, but doing it in such a way that makes the process simple, giving you confidence and peace of mind at every stage.

An exceptional example of a great wedding photographer.


Right from the initial video call all the way through the process was a sheer delight. It didn’t take us long to find Damion’s work online and his portfolio said it all. At that point, we decided that Damion was going to be our wedding photographer.

Wedding Client

YOUR WEDDING IS IMPORTANT TO ME

IT’S IMPORTANT TO ME THAT I NOT ONLY DELIVER A BEAUTIFUL REFLECTION OF A SPECIAL TIME IN A FAMILIES LIFE TOGETHER BUT ALSO AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

I’m always on hand to lend some guidance where needed, either on the day or in our consultancy sessions before the wedding where we run through the timings of the day and explore the photographic options.

After the wedding I spend a great deal of time individually editing and perfecting your photographs, ensuring that when you first get to see the images from your day you’re delighted. Once you’ve decided on the final set of shots I then curate them into a gorgeous wedding album, providing you with a beautiful collection of memories and a family heirloom.

CAPTURING YOUR PERFECT DAY

I NEVER FORGET THAT EVERY WEDDING IS UNIQUE AND  I APPROACH EACH WITH FRESH EYES.

As your wedding day draws closer I will arrange a wedding day consultation where we work through the detailed timings of your day, including any special details or requests you may have.

I can usually offer some advice on the light or the venue set-up in order to make sure your day goes exactly as you had imagined.

During the wedding consultation I pull together a timing plan for the day, detailing all the required photographs and locations along with any travel logistics. This works in synch with catering and venue schedules.

HOW I CAPTURE YOUR WEDDING DAY FOR YOU

BRIDAL PREPARATION

IN THE MORNING I WILL JOIN THE BRIDE TO CAPTURE THE GETTING READY SHOTS.

This is a lovely time of the day as emotions are high, excitement is building, nerves are jangling and the champagne is flowing.

I focus on capturing the bride as she’s finishing her make-up, with hair rollers and make-up paraphernalia a plenty, surrounded by mums, sisters and best friends.

Once the bride is ready, I will document the finishing touches to the dress and any first looks with loved ones.

GROOM PREPARATION

HERE COME THE BOYS

The guys getting ready is an altogether different affair to bridal prep. A morning filled with banter and laughs as cufflinks, ties and jackets miraculously come together in a blur of wise cracks and the odd stiff drink.

A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER GIVES A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE

A second professional photographer will capture groom preparations, take candid photographs of guests during the day and provide alternative angles and extended image coverage. All images are edited by me and will feel part of  a cohesive set of photos that document your wedding story.

THE CEREMONY

I DO

I travel ahead of the bride to the ceremony and capture the last moment as she leaves the car and takes the tentative steps towards the ceremony venue. A highly charged moment and often more than one tear is shed, typically from whomever is giving her away.

If you’ve chosen a second photographer then you’ll have shots of your guests arriving and the groom looking rather anxiously at his watch, and of course suitable stunned when his bride walks down the aisle.

COUPLE PORTRAITS

TIME TO CAPTURE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL

As your guests make their way to the reception, I’ll whisk you away for some alone time where you can catch your breath and say something more than ‘I do’ to each other.

This is the time I typically like to capture newlywed shots. It’s a simple and relaxed affair where we photograph those memorable first moments of your marriage together, giving you some beautiful images to cherish.

It’s not lots of awkward poses and lifts or any cheesy shots you’ve seen with brides and grooms inside their wedding rings….think of it as a stroll around the venue and a few cheeky kisses between the two of you before we make our way back to your friends and family.

RECEPTION AND SPEECHES

CAPTURING THE EMOTION OF THE DAY

I will be well positioned during the reception and speeches to make sure I can capture this emotional and humorous part of the day. If you choose a second photographer it’s easier to split the room and capture guest reactions as well as speakers.

I feel it best to give guests a break whilst eating (it never makes great photography) , but I am never far away and will be ready for the cutting of the cake.

DETAILS THAT MAKE THE DAY

THE DEVILS IN THE DETAIL

It’s the details of the day that add context to the story of your wedding, the rings you’ve picked, the mementoes you’ve been given, the table settings you thought long and hard about.

I make sure that I’ve got these covered and that they’re very much a part of your collection.

Wherever possible I will try and capture a clear photograph of the wedding room before guests arrive.

FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHS

THE PICTURE FOR THE MANTELPIECE

As a documentary wedding photographer I keep this part of the day brief, but I understand that my couples would like a limited number of more formal photographs with their loved ones. I typically take between 8-10 formal portrait shots on the day.

 

PARTY TIME

FROM THE FIRST DANCE TO THE DANCING ON THE CEILING

Unlike many photographers I don’t pack up immediately after the first dance. My extended coverage means that I will stay until I’ve caught enough boogying to really tell the story of your evening.

 

FAQ’s

u

I don't like my photo being taken

Wow, do I hear this a lot. I’m the same. It’s my job to make you feel at ease and help you enjoy the experience. I’m super personable, relaxed and I make the wedding photographs easy and fun rather than a chore. I’ve picked up a trick or two to help with posing and relaxing my clients.

u

Are you insured?

Yep, this is really important to me and you. I have public liability insurance up to £5m and also professional indemnity insurance to cover most eventualities.

u

Do you travel for weddings?

I travel across South East England for wedding and my prices include up to 60 miles of travel from my home location. Should your wedding be further afield than this then I have charge a small fee for fuel.  If your wedding required me to stay overnight then I have a fixed change of £95 to cover accommodation.

u

Do you shoot weddings abroad?

Yes, I love a destination wedding. Do get in touch and we can talk through a bespoke price.

u

What if you get ill?

I’ve never not made it to a wedding yet and a simple cold or stomach upset won’t hold me back. If I am genuinely incapable of getting to your wedding day I will do my best to pre-warn you and arrange for an alternative photographer.

u

What cameras and lenses do you use?

I shoot on 2 professional Canon bodies and with Canon prime lenses. If one camera fails I have the second. Each camera has two memory card slots and I record the same image twice to avoid any single memory card failure and image loss.

u

How do we book you?

In order to confirm your booking and date in my diary I require a £600 deposit and for you to complete my booking form and contract. Your wedding balance is due 90 days before your wedding date.

u

When do we get our images?

During peak season your final set of edited images will be with you within 6-8 weeks of the wedding day.

I always try and deliver a few sneak peek images a week after the wedding for you to share.

u

How do you design our album?

You select your favourite images on your private gallery by simply clicking ‘favourite’ next to the ones you want included. I then design the first layout, send to you for feedback and once you are happy you sign off. I will arrange printing, quality control and delivery to your preferred address.
