David was recommended to us by a professional and highly regarded photographer and we were instantly interested after looking at his website.
On meeting David to discuss our choices, he was relaxed and so easy to talk to. We were instantly captured by his passion for photography and enjoyed looking through his portfolio! David’s love for his work is infectious and he left us feeling very excited about capturing our special day!
The booking process was quick and easy, something we really appreciated at an already busy time. Throughout the lead up to our Wedding Day, David kept in touch via email which really reassured us as we booked him 18 months in advance. He always replied to emails within the hour and was always happy to discuss options. He was always polite and professional in his approach and it showed that he wanted the best for us at all times - ensuring he knew our likes/dislikes before the BIG day. We really liked that he arranged a visit with us a week before the day to go through final details to ensure the pictures and day was a success!!
On the day...well what can we say, he was an absolute trooper - running around, climbing trees, lying on the grass tops to ensure the perfect shot! All in 32 degree heat too! He didn’t stop all day and this didn’t go unnoticed by our guests - we were all impressed. Nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond for us to make our day so special. The photos are stunning and we LOVE how natural and unstaged they are. He is very talented and has a real eye for the perfect shot! We are so grateful to have had our most precious moments captured by David, which we can and will cherish forever. The photos were completed within 2 weeks and offered a free download for family and friends to access should they choose. I just can’t stop looking at them all, especially how proud my dad and husband looked as we walked down the aisle!
We would highly recommend David to capture your most precious and special moments! You will not be disappointed � All of the comments we have received from guests have been extremely positive - “Wow, he’s amazing and worth the money” “he was everywhere and didn’t stop working all day!” “Stunning photos” need I go on...We look forward to working with David again - maybe for our 1st year Wedding Anniversary, if he would consider this!
David, thank you so much for your hard work throughout the day and for playing a BIG part in making it so special.
We recently got married at Homme House in Much Marcle having fallen in love with the house as soon as we stepped inside. Several months after booking our venue our search for a good value, documentary style photographer, having been to wedding fayres and scouting the internet had been less fruitful. I randomly noticed an advert on Facebook for David and contacted him for a quote. He responded instantly (so rare in wedding planning!!) and we booked him the same day. We first met David at our engagement shoot and we quickly got onto talking about his interesting career to date and his time in Tanzania. It felt like we were catching up with an old friend which meant that when it came to photographing us both at our engagement shoot and on our wedding day it was so easy to relax. I have been to lots of weddings recently and noticed how bossy or set in their ways some photographers are. We had none of that with David....and other than a couple of portrait photographs we barely noticed David was there (sorry David!) David was professionally presented, but not afraid to get himself on the ground in the mud or in funny locations in pursuit of "the shot". He arrived midway through the bridal preparations and stayed right into the evening reception and we put him through his paces with the variety of things going on around him. We had a videographer with us on the day too and he commented back to us that David had been brilliant in co-ordinating with him so that we weren't constantly pulled in one direction or another and we felt the same on the day too. We received a DVD, USB stick and fully edited online gallery of over 600 images, both in black and white and full colour within 2 weeks of our special day. Chris and I aren't what you would call "naturals" in front of the camera and the idea of standing around posing endlessly whilst the rest of our guests were enjoying themselves was the last thing that we wanted and upon researching David's style and previous work it was clear that there was a good happy medium. On the day, we got a few group shots (for the family album) and a few of Chris and I in the grounds, but nothing contrived and none that made us uncomfortable at all. The photographs that we treasure the most are the ones where our guests are laughing and chatting and where Chris and I are just being ourselves amongst them, dancing, enjoying ourselves and being loved up which is what we believe a wedding should be about! We would recommend David to anyone who is looking for a fine art, documentary style photographer for their wedding. In fact we're considering renewing our vows every year...just so we can do it all again with David documenting it! We are absolutely thrilled with our pictures and overwhelmed with choice for our album! Thank you, David! Hope our paths may cross again in the future! Love Mr & Mrs Griffiths
We loved working with David for our wedding and were so pleased with the quality of the photos he produced. David was always super responsive to our requests, but also very understanding when we got behind on our wedding planning, taking everything in his stride. On the day itself, he worked tirelessly to get as many classic shots as he could. We loved the combination of great wedding snapshots with just gorgeous pictures of our friends and family. We'd have absolutely no hesitation recommending him to someone looking for a wedding photographer.
