HELLO, I'M Dan...
Thanks for your interest in our work, if you're here then you must be pretty close to booking your photographer or cinematographer for your wedding. Get yourself a cuppa and have a look around the website to get an idea of what we produce for our amazing couples. Being a wedding photographer and videographer in Nottingham is great because there's easy access to most of the country, we're generally within a couple of hours of everywhere, including London, Birmingham, Derby and Leeds. Go a little further afield and you get to Liverpool, Manchester, Coventry and Norfolk. Travelling is no issue for us, in fact we love shooting new venues.
Here's a picture of me playing with some levitation photography techniques, not an easy task I have to say, slightly risky too I might add! I'm a father of three awesome but really noisy kids and husband to my incredible wife. I love creating albums (whether it's digital or conventional) that my couples will love forever, I pride myself on my ability to unobtrusively support each and every couple on the lead up to and through their Wedding day. I remember giving my speech like it was yesterday, you'll appreciate the experience on your day!
Choosing the right cinematographer
How do you choose the right cinematographer to capture your day? It's hard, there's loads of choice, and of course price is a huge factor. Yes there are cheaper operators out there but there are some important things to consider. Do they think about story telling? Do they capture quality audio on the best quality mics? Do they do a full colour grade to match your personality, use sound design? Natural & creative transitions? A number of operators simply edit without any kind of flow to the story. Do they have the experience to work directly with your photographer to get the shots with minimal time away from your guests? Watch some films, see what's out there, decide what you like and more importantly decide what you don't.
I film no more than 15 wedding short films a year and have experience filming Civil Ceremonies, Traditional English Weddings, Catholic, Polish, Hindu and Muslim Weddings yet my style of film remains the same, modern and clean. It's all about the story. Your Story. Multi-day weddings will likely carry an extra charge but it completely depends on what final product you're after and the length of time it will take to film and produce, call me if you're unsure. All wedding films are delivered on USB for the highest quality viewing experience. As you'd expect I visit the venue in advance to plan the shots and always meet up with you a few weeks before to confirm the itinerary.
Choosing the right photographer
There's even more choice when it comes to choosing a photographer for your Wedding, ultimately the first thing you should be drawn to is the style of photos you want in your final collection, you might like really clean, bright and vivid, or you may prefer the vintage faded film, low contrast look. But whatever your preference it's also really important to meet, so you know exact who you're booking. Remember your photographer will spend a lot of the morning with the Bride and Bridesmaids so you'll want someone who you feel comfortable getting ready around whilst you enjoy your morning with friends and family, you don't want someone stressing or bossing people around.
Insurance & What's included
I hold full public liability insurance, am qualified and licenced by the CAA to fly a drone, I include all advanced photography and cinematography techniques in all packages (Timelapse, Drone, Gimbals, Slow Motion etc) so don't feel like the less you spend the less value you get. Music licencing for the Snapshot/Highlight/Short Film is included in the price. Thanks for reading this, have a look around the site, check out the blog and give me a call anytime, I'd be happy to meet you for coffee to talk about your day.
