I've known Dave for years - he's a passionate and gifted photographer. He somehow has the knack of taking just the right shot at just the right moment. I'd highly recommend Dave if you need him for any sort of photography work - whether a wedding or sports photography. I love his work. And such a lovely person to work with too because he is happy, friendly and easy going.

Wedding day photos:

What I like  to do is talk about the day to get an understanding on how the day will work, the  planning, the details,  where I can  help to create a story of all those moments, capturing the magic, that  pass all to quickly.

Quick Questions...

What do I do, how do I book?

The best way is to email me at with the date of your wedding day and a brief description on how your planning your day.  Will the ceremony be at the same place as the wedding reception, will you be getting married in a church, or registry office. With this information I can provide a favorable quote?

Do you do creative lighting?

Yes I do.  as much as possible at the right time after the ceremony. 

How many photos do you take?

Now that all depends on the type of day organised. I generally deliver from 200 400 images from a days wedding. I don't photograph everything that moves in the hope that makes a good shot, I look for opportunities to build a story. Only once have I delivered over 900 images, there was a lot going on that day, lots of activities were arranged for the guests. 

Do you Travel outside of Kent?

Yes I do, when my services are required I will travel

Can I buy extra prints from you?

Yes you can, you can buy prints directly from the gallery, these will be priced at the gallery rates. The print will come from a print lab called Loxley based near Scotland. They have very good turn around time from the moment the order is placed, prints will arrive with in 4 days. If you decide to order framed or canvas  prints then there will be a lead time from a week as frames are made to order.

How Do I get the photos?

Depending what has been agreed for my services I'll deliver images via my website. The modern age of the internet and the fast pace of social media, I realize that is important not to keep a couple waiting. Most of my image delivery via emailed secure download link,  with in a few days of the wedding day.

Do you work alone?

Most of the time I do, helps to keep cost down. Occasionally I may ask my wife to assist if the weather is going to be bad, an extra pair of hands comes in handy sometimes. 

Are you a natural light photographer?

Normally yes, if the natural light is complementary to the scene I'm photographing the I won't use flash. there are situations where the registrar or minister will make a point of making it clear to not use flash during the ceremony. the most challenging situations are in churches.

Do I have to order prints from you?

No not if you don't want to. Once you have the digital images in your possession you can go off to the local printing lab or upload them to an online print lab , such as photobox go go from there.
