“I don’t even have the words to describe how utterly fantastic he was and how memorising and enchanting the photos are”
Before I get started I want to say that I can’t thank or recommend Damion Mower enough. I don’t even have the words to describe how utterly fantastic he was and how mesmerising and enchanting the photos are. We could not have possibly asked for a better experience and I can’t praise him, his assistant, and their work enough.
Now into the details. All my life, my mother always used to say that if you spend money on anything for your wedding, let it be the photography, and I have to say that following this advice was the best decision I’ve made throughout the entirety of the wedding planning.
We found Damion just through online research and we knew straight away from the writing on his website, that he was the right fit for us. Me and my husband are very young (21 and 22) and we had quite an unusual personal pagan wedding planned and Damion was completely open minded and ready to work with us on everything. He completely fit our philosophy of making our wedding about collective love and bliss shared.
We didn’t have much knowledge about wedding planning before this all began and we started with only six months to pull it off. Damion encouraged us a lot and he helped with some of the things we were slacking on like organising the preliminary schedule. He was totally patient with our frankly disorganised planning style.
On the day he was utterly brilliant, he really made sure to keep us informed and communicate with us. He worked with our schedule and gently reminded us for specific events like family photos. His assistant was also lovely, together they made sure to capture special moments from multiple angles so we could get every detail, like getting both me and my husband during like the first look. They managed to completely cover the groomsmen getting ready as well as the bridesmaids despite being in completely different buildings. Damion has an incredible eye. He caught so many special moments of the bridesmaids getting ready as well as using features of our house like mirrors to capture especially artful shots. They got everything that was important to us and much more. They were totally unobtrusive during our ceremony and gave us so many beautiful photos from it, as well as being totally flexible to me adjusting the schedule during the reception on the day to suit my needs.
After the wedding he kept communication open through emails as well through regularly sending us sneak peek photos and updates. When the final set came out I was completely and utterly blown away. There are so many special shots. Every guest is included in at least a few shots so there’s something for everyone. We asked for a documentary style shoot and now we that have the photos, we are so so so elated with the result. There are so many beautiful candid pictures, so many are filled with laughter, smiles and tears. I can hardly pick just 50 for the album since there are so many photos that me and my husband love. The little touches mean everything, the beautiful memory stick in our wedding colours and Damion working with us for our wedding to feature on Rock and Roll Bride. He truly is the perfect wedding photographer.
At the end of the day, when you look back on your wedding in a months time, or years time, you’ll hardly remember the food, you’ll hardly remember the music, you’ll hardly even remember much of the decor, the thing that will take you back to your wedding day is the photos you have. The evidence of all the crying, the speeches, the hugging. The utter bliss that everyone was enveloped in. This was the gift Damion gave us. I’m so so incredibly grateful for it. If you’re considering Damion, and you’re not sure yet or you have any concerns about the cost, let me tell you that he is worth it. The beautiful photos that I will treasure forever are worth it. Thank you Damion!
