Photographer of the Year 2016
Stories fuel what I do. I am driven by the people I meet and their stories. I am humbled and honoured when people share their stories with me and let me into their lives, even if it might seem like it’s just for one day.
I strongly believe that if you strip everything back, take away all the smoke and mirrors; two people committing themselves to each other on such a special and memorable day is one of the most beautiful things on earth to witness. For me, this really is just magical and something that never gets old!
I am driven by the love of two people, by that spark that you share. People often ask what it is I enjoy about weddings, and it’s simple, I love the chemistry, love and spark between a couple. I have been extremely fortunate to document some amazing stories. Stories that I will never forget and I am truly thankful every-time I am lucky enough to capture a couples special day. I have also been extremely fortunate to have travelled to some amazing places to document these love stories.
Nothing excites me more than hearing how you met, the ups, the downs and how you both came to be sitting in front of me discussing the very reasons you’re about to make the next big step in your adventure. Love is a journey, and the wedding itself is a small part of it.
I am not ashamed to say, I have shed a few tears while “working”. I invest myself in the people I document and I get the feels like any other guest, family or friend. It means something to me, as it does for you and them. Love comes in a million shapes and sizes and my part doesn’t stop at the end of the day. By the time I’ve finished working with a couple on making their day something to remember, I am lucky enough to consider them friends, as cheesy as that might sound!
I don’t do gimmicks or awkward posing, all I ask is you guys have the best day ever and I’ll do everything to capture it for you. That look you give each other, the cuddle with dad, mum helping you into your dress; are all natural moments that I honestly believe produce the best photographs, no awkwardness here!
And I definitely will never ask you to say cheese. I am passionate about what I do and although you have a million choices of where to go for your photography, I’d love to meet you, hear your story and see if you think I’m a good fit for your day.
Awards are a fantastic thing for us, but happy and satisfied couples are far more important. So please don’t book D&A on the awards but on the feeling you get when you look through other stories I’ve capture. Do they captivate you? Do you smile, laugh or even get emotional? If so, I think I could be a great photographer for your day.
Wow, just wow!! We had high expectatio

They went above and beyond, even staying almost until the very end, meaning nothing was missed.

“Having Dan at our wedding was by far one of the easiest decisions we ever made. The moment we met him and saw his incredible work we were certain that Dan should be our photographer. He is one of the nicest people you will meet and makes you feel at ease instantly.
That was hugely important for us as my wife and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera. All the photos are absolutely perfect and Dan is so good at what he does the photos were a breeze on the day.
I always thought wedding photos would be tedious but Dan is extremely efficient at organising people into the right positions and he specialises in taking natural and candid photos. We honestly cannot recommend him highly enough.“
It has taken me a while to find the words to write this review and do Dan the absolute justice he deserves as an amazing photographer!
Dan shot our wedding in the Cotswolds on 16.12.2017. We hadn't met Dan previously but I had exchanged numerous calls and emails with him in the lead up to the wedding. Communication with Dan was always so easy, he was always on hand to help and nothing was ever to much trouble.
On the day of the wedding he was absolutely amazing. Arriving early to get shots of us all getting ready and in this time captured so many special moments. Everyone commented on how relaxed he made them feel and how professional he was. My Mum has always had a complete phobia of the camera and didn't even realise until we received the photos that he had taken any of her! The whole thing was so natural and he made us all feel at ease.
All of the shots we had whether just me and my Husband or group photos ran seamlessly. We honesty could not of asked for a n...
WOW! WOW! WOW!
That's 3 words to describe the experience we had with Dan as our wedding photographer. We had heard good things about Dan before we got engaged and been admirers of his style of photography, and so when the time came, we knew who we wanted, and after meeting him, we were even more assured.
Dan's ability to capture every moment of the day is incredible. He is able to encapsulate the mood and atmosphere in single photos and his talent is incomparable. He manages to photograph the most natural and spontaneous photos which really captures the best moments of the day perfectly.
He's personable, approachable and very easy to work with and made everything so easy for us. His personality and charm enables him to mingle amongst your friends and family as if he's there as a guest!
We've had so many compliments on our photos already and if you're thinking of having a photographer for any occasion,...
Hands down Dan will be the best decision you could ever make for your wedding day.
My Wife and I have never met such a nice guy who instantly makes you feel at ease with getting your photo taken through laughter and shear enthusiasm for what he does.
Our photos are absolutely epic and we couldn't be happier with how the day has been captured and how it really tells the story of the whole event.
Dan didn't miss a thing, he was always in the right place at the right time and is professional through and through. If there's one easy decision to make when planning your wedding it's D&A Photography!!
I thought I'd done this months ago but clearly I spent too long obsessing over the photos and forgot about actually reviewing.
Dan photographed our wedding on 23.09.16 at Blake Hall and honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer on the day and afterwards, with the results!!
He worked so well with our videographer whom he had never met before and they really complimented one another.
I would recommend D&A to anyone and everyone, worth every single penny and you will not be disappointed. Thanks for the lifetime of memories D&A!
We could write so much more about Dan but in summary I just have to say, he is AWESOME!
Straight after we got engaged I went to a wedding show with my mum and Dan was actually the first photographer I spoke with.
I instantly felt comfortable chatting with him, loved his style and on the way home I knew we had to book him.
From the initial meeting to the big day and post wedding, the whole experience with Dan has been flawless. He is so genuine, friendly, enthusiastic and above all extremely talented. We absolutely loved the personal touches at the point of booking, and the gorgeous slideshow we received on our honeymoon blew us away.
Our wedding photography was one thing that we really wanted to get right and Dan didn't just get it right, everything was better than we could have hoped for.
