Don't get me wrong, it's an honour regardless to where I am lucky enough to find myself shooting a couple's special day. But when I get to visit places that are on my personal bucket list, it's pretty special.
Florence has been on my list for quite some time, and Italy in general is somewhere I really do love, the food, the people, the light, the sunsets, the sweeping green hills, it's a naturally stunning and unique place. I met Megan and Rob in Majorca while shooting Hannah and Jordan's beautiful day.
Rob was Jordan's best man, so I got to know him pretty well that day. It was awesome to hear from these two after Jordan and Hannah's wedding and that they wanted to have me along to their day, out in Florence. When we skyped and chatted about the day they had planned, It got me super pumped!
I have to say in hindsight it was even better than they had described it to me. The wedding took place in the stunning Villa DiManiao in the mountains, with views right across Florence, just a dream! I was lucky enough to work alongside a good friend, and super talented videographer in Ben Walton Films, go check his work out. He's crazy talented and a great guy, even lending me some shorts to battle the 40 degree heat!
We were blessed with that crazy heat wave which at times was hard to work in! It was just so hot! However Megan and Rob smashed it and didn't let the hear faze them. Food was outragious, the people, guests, atmosphere was all just on point and the party was pretty insane! (Can thank Jordan for my hangover!)
Guys, I don't think I have ever been around such inclusive, awesome people in all my life. From the moment I arrived, and Ben the videographer can back me up here, we have never been treated so well, and made to feel like part of the family, so thank you guys for that. Hope to catch up again soon.
Wow, just wow!! We had high expectatio

They went above and beyond, even staying almost until the very end, meaning nothing was missed.
They both managed to capture all the small moments which made the day what it was, and the photos are more beautiful than I ever imagined!!

“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.
