Hello I’m David, I’m 34 years old and I have the best job in the world – I am a professional wedding photographer!
That’s me to the left; apart from my own wedding day, it’s one of only a few photos in existence I look ok in. I know what it feels like to hate having a camera shoved in your face followed by the harrowing request of ‘smile’. I’ve set out to make things easier for us all. If you are anything like me then you will appreciate the style of wedding photography I offer – 100% natural and relaxed.
I’m husband to my beautiful wife Lois and we have been married for 6 years now. I’m dad to the most incredible boy – Finlay, and toddler Phoebe. Life just couldn’t be better at the moment!
It was an honor to be asked to photograph at the London Olympic Games. I wasn’t the guy chasing after Usain Bolt after he won, I was hired to document people having a great time and capture the whole Olympic vibe, as well as logistics, for which my photos are now used in documents and advertising all over the world. One of the best experiences of my life.
In early 2014 I was excited to receive a personal invite from Junebug Weddings to join their list of preferred wedding photographers. This is an absolute honour as only 20 wedding photographers from England are invited to be included in their exclusive list.
Junebug weddings commented on how I was able to capture such incredible imagery in a totally natural way and that my portfolio of wedding images stood out above others. I’m absolutely over the moon!
I offer an extensive range of training courses for wedding photographers. My most popular course being my mentoring programme. Teaching is something I hugely enjoy and it feels great to pass on the knowledge I have gained over the years. If you are a wedding photographer looking to push your business in the right direction, see my training page.
Every wedding is different, and I love being the photographer at every single one of them. I feel so privileged to be asked by so many couples to capture their day, and I make it my mission to provide every couple with hundreds of stunning photos. It is the best feeling to have so many compliments about my work, and to see the faces of couples as they look through their album for the first time. Although I am based near Manchester, I cover weddings throughout the North West and UK.
