Natural, Creative and Fun. Do you consider your Wedding day to be the most joyous, fun filled and romantic day of your life? So do I !
I shoot weddings of all varieties but I approach them all in the same way. I set out with one thing in mind. Can I capture the true story of the day through photography? The answer is yes.
I shoot in a photojournalistic style, I'll chat and have a giggle with your guests but I certainly won't get under their feet, in all honesty they'll barely notice I'm there for most of the time.
My other passion on the day is capture some truly beautiful portraits of my couples in lovely natural soft light - you won't find me setting up loads of off camera flash equipment - that would just kill the moment!
I like to think of myself as just another guest on the day - just lucky to be able to capture the precious moments.
Most of my couples are a little less on the traditional side. Creative folk who value great photography but most of all value their friends, family and the importance of ensuring everyone has the party of their lives !
Damien blended seamlessly into the day, with many of my guests left wondering how he got such great shots as they rarely saw him! Damien worked incredibly hard to be in the right place at the right time and was continually conscious of aspects like angles and sunsets to give us photos we could have only dreamt of. This was all the more incredible because he had never been to our venue before.
When we received our pictures we were elated. He captured the day so well and the emotion in each shot was stunning. From proud mothers looking at us, to giggling bridesmaids to partying friends; it was all perfect. The colours were vibrant, the shots were clear and (dare we say it) we looked great!!! You would never have guessed we were the awkward and camera shy people from before.
Since then, I have been asked several times for Damien's contact by my guests as they were so impressed. This man is excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Our wedding party only equated to 30 people and so we were keen to get someone who could organise some big personalities but also who would get along with our friends and family. Damien was the perfect guy. He is chatty and easy to get along with and everyone at the wedding loved him.
He made sure we got the shots we wanted without taking up a lot of our time, and directed our rowdy rabble with the greatest of ease. He blended into the background when he needed to to get some epic portraits, but also helped to organise the day and the people and was actually a huge help on the day! The pics of just the two of us were a lot of fun to do and Damien was there to help us relax in front of the camera, he instantly read that we wanted them to be fun and a bit quirky and he directed us perfectly to capture some great moments between the two of us.
To say I am thrilled with the end result is an understatement, the photos are full of life, fun, colour and he captured the mood of the day and the personality of our friends and family perfectly. I usually hate photos of myself but I am totally blown away with the shots he took. He managed to snap more than just the people - he documented the character of the building we were in and the environment and ambience of the day overall. The hardest part is choosing which ones to print out!
If ever I am in need of a photographer for any future events I’ll book Damien in a heartbeat. You won’t regret doing the same!
We hadn't planned on an engagement shoot, but Damien includes one in his package and it's a very worthwhile venture, getting the chance to spend more time in each others' company in order to feel more relaxed in front of the camera. We absolutely loved our photos, despite the challenging light of a cinema setting so we already knew we had chosen well by this point!
On our May bank holiday wedding day, we suspected we'd be up against the weather, and we had clouds, spitting, a torrential downpour and sunshine - 4 seasons in a day! Damien was completely on the ball throughout the day, paying close attention to conditions and changing light.
Many people who have seen our photos have commented on how lovely the weather must have been, which is not the case at all! We were just lucky to have a very dedicated and skilled photographer with an excellent eye. For someone who is very self-critical I am not the easiest to please, and I am genuinely thrilled with our wedding photos.
As well as a beautiful set of atmospheric, romantic, couple shots outside in the evening sun, there are the most incredibly well-captured candid shots of friends and family that we could ever imagine. Damien was everywhere all day, and yet we barely saw him! He appeared periodically to drag us out into the right lighting, but each time was very efficient and we didn't feel that we were ever gone for long. He is very experienced, aware and he listened to what we wanted. He was very patient with us and we couldn't recommend him enough. Having looked at different photographers, Damien is very good value for money and was effortless to work with. Thank you so much for the wonderful representation of the day!
When it came to choosing a photographer (a couple of days later, haha) we were immediately drawn to Damien's style, the vibrancy, colours and his frequent use of glowing sunsets. He made it easy really.
From the get go Damien kept in touch and listened to exactly what we wanted from our photos.
He worked tirelessly throughout our day catching the most wonderful moments. From the start of the day where he spent the early morning wandering around the grounds of our venue finding the best spots all the way through to the late evening when the party was in full swing.
We will treasure our photos forever. Thank you Damien."
