Hi, I'm Dan

I'm a documentary wedding photographer based in Hampshire

Your Hampshire wedding photographer

You're looking for a photographer who specialises in photographing shy couples. As someone who is massively camera shy myself I can completely empathise with couples who don’t like being in front of the camera because like you I am extremely camera shy. I will often take my camera to parties not necessarily because I want to take photos but because I can hide behind the camera and not be in front of it.

You want your wedding photos natural and unposed. 95% of your wedding day will be in a documentary style, your wedding gallery will show your wedding the way you remember it. There have been occasions where I have been described as a photography ninja and I have received comments from brides that they weren’t even aware that I was taking photos. You even want the bride and groom portraits to reflect you as a couple and not be cliches. That's why during this 5% of the wedding day that is posed, i.e the group shots and bride and groom portraits, we work together so that you are posing in a very comfortable, natural way and together we create candid moments to capture.


Hey, I’m Dan, a documentary wedding photographer! The most important thing to know about me is that I have 2 cats who are absolutely my life. They are called Briar and Rose and they are just my life. Everything I do I do for them, which probably makes me sound like a mad cat person. If you have a cat expect lots of cat chats and exchange of photos. I should really start a collection of screen shots of couples who have involved their cats in the initial consultation. I would also love a dog, as I grew up surrounded by them but we're currently living in a one bed flat so we will need to move into a house to give a dog the space they need.

You may have noticed that I used the term “we” just now. That is my girlfriend. She is a primary school teacher and its not uncommon for us to spend our evenings with her telling amusing stories of the madhouse (i.e. school)

Let's get coffee

Dan photographed our wedding last month.

On the run up to the Wedding his communication was exceptional, emailing often and arranging meetings at our convenience.

We found Dan very easy to talk to, he really is a lovely guy.

He didn't seem to stop taking photos all day! And as promised he gave us a few sneak peek within a couple of days - which of course were stunning and we received the rest of the gallery a few weeks later.
