Hi There, I’m Dan!
Creative Documentary Wedding Photograper.

Thanks so much for dropping by, I absolutely love what I do and I hope it shows through in my work. I'm a creative documentary wedding photographer based in Nottingham and I love to capture the natural connections between people. I’m also a sucker for goofy smiles and genuine gestures.

My approach to wedding photography is relaxed and professional and always with a big smile. I believe this is at the core of great documentary wedding photography. Ultimately for me; it’s about who you are as a couple and capturing the real you and the story of your day is it unfolds.

Awesome Wedding Photography

The nervous early hustle.

The excited hello's.

The anticipation.

This is the day you say "I Do" to your best friend.

"Oh Dan! what a true delight you are! Everyone has been raving about how fantastic you were, and how at ease we all felt around you. You both went above and beyond your rolls, from fixing my dress, driving my husband to the church."
Sarah & Ben, The Walled Gardens Beeston

Nottingham Documentary Wedding Photographer

I’ve been a documentary wedding photographer for over ten years now and I find that the couples I work with share very similar qualities.

I don‘t believe there is a one size fits all wedding photographer, and in your search you need to find a photographer that you have a great connection with. Hopefully by looking through this website, you will be able to easily answer if that’s me or not.

I shot my first wedding in 2008 at Prestwold Hall, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Beautiful, relaxed and timeless images are what make my heart sing. Gorgeous lighting is an absolute must & simplicity speak volumes. Relaxed candid shots with genuine emotion will win out over the perfectly posed scene every day of the week.
