Testimonials & Kind Words
I’m very proud to have reached the finals of The Wedding Industry Awards for the second year (out of two entries 2017 & 2018), an awards ceremony based around genuine votes from the wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing over the last year. I made the finals thanks to their amazing support with their feedback which gets submitted to TWIA for consideration before the finalists are announced. Thank you to every one of you who made the time to vote for me! Here is what they had to say:
Dan was like our friend at our wedding he blended in and took the most natural shots (we had so many to choose from) which captured our day perfectly! Our guests loved him he has a great personality and we still love to stay in touch now! The quality of the whole process; comms; photos etc was to the highest standard! We also found Dans package to be super reasonable cost wise compared to others! We couldn’t have asked for more and recommend him to everyone. I love the social media coverage too!
Dan was amazing. Prior to the wedding he was checking in with us and provided us with a preshoot where he made us feel at ease. On the wedding day he arrived early and was chatty and smiley until very late (much later than agreed). He got our photos to us within 3 weeks and we love all the photos. They are exactly what we asked for. Couldn't recommend Dan enough. He was brilliant
Dan was highly professional and put everyone at ease. Several guests commented on his approach and through his interactions, he perfectly captured the essence of the day and special moments in particular. We have a mix of formal and candid photos, and it is evident from these that he had thought about the key moments, the surroundings and guests. We would highly recommend Dan to anyone wanting a great photographer for their wedding!
Dan from the start was friendly, approachable and professional. We had a pre wedding shoot which was fun, he put us at ease with his relaxed manner. The photos were just stunning. He kept in touch and at our meeting he understood our needs. Always open and honest, he got both of us very quickly. On the day he was perfect. He was around constantly but never got in the way, everyone commented how perfect he was. The photos were perfect a very high standard, we love them and everyone agrees.
Dan wasn’t just our photographer for the day, he was part of the team. He offered help and advice all day. Some of the pictures and moments he has captured are ones we didn’t even realise had happened. He took a brilliant variety of pictures including formal photos for the family to have on the wall to natural ones capturing the moment. We cannot recommend Dan enough. He made our day so perfect, helping tie cravats, keeping timings, helping the band and keeping my Dad calm. Great photographer!
As we live in Sydney Australia but originally from the UK, we were searching for a photographer who would be happy and dedicated enough to help us from across the oceans. We came across Dans website and we were immediately impressed by his vision for photos and the professional results. From the very first FaceTime contact we had with Dan we were taken with his infectious enthusiasm and a need to fulfil everything we wanted. Start to finish Dan was a wonder, allowing us freedom at every point.
We have had so many comments from guests about how great Dan was throughout the entire day. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. From the initial email for more information to after the day itself, he has been easy to work with and always on hand to answer any questions. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Dan is an absolute gem, he helped make our day everything we wanted, from him arriving to taking photos of me and my bridesmaids, to our firework finish, he captured everything perfectly, moments me and my husband managed to miss! Dan captured some beautiful photos of me and my husband and daughter at a pre wedding shoot also which gave us a taster of the way he worked! Every guest all 120 of them complimented us on what a lovely photographer he was! We received our photos very quickly as well!
Dan was an amazing photographer, he came along with great ideas for the photos, but was also open to our ideas and also ideas from our guests. He was very relaxed and very friendly at all times, in fact he actually felt like a friend . We also had our two four year old grandsons with us and Dan was absolutely fantastic with them as well, nothing was any trouble to him and he made the whole wedding party relaxed from the word go ..highly recommend to anybody ...
Dan is an amazing photographer and a great person too. We both hate having our photos taken but he put us at ease right from the first time we met him. He truly listened to what we wanted and worked with us to give us the stunning memories we have in our photographs. He blended in so well and felt like an actual wedding guest we had known for ever! Many of our guests commented on his wonderful approach, amazing photography skills and loveable personality. Dan really deserves to win this award.
Dan was an excellent photographer and we enjoyed the whole experience, from the pre-wedding shoot through to our wedding day. Dan was excellent in finding out the type of people we were and what photography style would suit us (I'm not overly keen on having my photo taken and Dan was very good at making us both feel comfortable!) On our wedding day, Dan wasn't an intrusive presence and made everyone feel relaxed when having their photos taken-we made an excellent choice of photographer!
Dan was attentive, detailed, inspiring and professional from first meeting to after the wedding. He went above and beyond at every point he could. His service has been outstanding. The quality of photography and editing is phenominal. We can not recommended him enough.
There’s far too much we could say about how wonderful Dan is. His talent and ability to capture moments is the reason we contacted him; his warmth, communication and fair pricing is the reason we booked him but the way he integrated himself into the wedding party, making everybody comfortable and feeling as though they’d known him forever is the reason he should win this award. Dan is so very much more than a photographer.
Dan was an amazing find for us - we didn't have a fixed idea of what we wanted for our wedding photos but showing him the venues and that we were in the city meant he was able to use his skill and creativity to create hundreds of amazing images that showed our day exactly as we had envisaged it to be - a fun, urban party surrounded by the amazing architecture of Nottingham. He was never intrusive or invasive but got so many amazing shots he must have been running around constantly!
I studied Fine Art and Photography for 3 years at degree level and when it came to planning the wedding, getting the right photographer was my biggest worry. When we met Dan, I spent hours going over his social media accounts, website and blog and knew he was the right person for us. His ability to capture candid moments in the most beautiful way, being friendly and on the day he was everywhere and nowhere at the same time, captured every moment perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for more.
Dan absolutely made our wedding - the photos are unbelievable and his style on the day was great. Made us feel so at ease whilst having a good laugh with him too! Will be strongly recommending to friends and family!
We were delighted with both the professional service offered by Dan and by the quality and style of the photographs. Before the wedding, Dan took the time to get to know us on a pre-wedding shoot and, on the day, he blended in perfectly and worked incredibly hard to capture our day. We feel that the photographs have absolutely captured the essence of the day. Numerous guests have commented on how very pleasant and hard working Dan was. We couldn't be happier with our choice. Highly recommended.
