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, look no further than this guy, Dan Sakal! He's enabled us to re-live the best day of our lives over and over again with his passion and love for photography, and we're so so grateful for all his hard work. I can't recommend Dan highly enough.

We searched long and hard to find the right photographer and then we met Dan - easily the best decision we made. We knew when we met him from his enthusiasm and passion that no one else could compare. We instantly felt at ease. He is incredibly talented and he captured every wonderful moment of our day - I still love the photo of the moment my husband wasn't sure about commitment and that photo will capture the humour forever. I couldn't recommend Dan highly enough and I'm so glad we could share our day with him. Love the pre wedding photo shoot which is a lovely way to get to know Dan and for him to get us to relax in front of the camera. Thank you so much! If you haven't chosen a photographer - D&A all the way.

Daniel. Where do we start. If you are looking for a photographer to capture the true essence and feeling of your wedding day, then look no further! We cannot rate Dan any higher; he is extremely professional yet somehow manages to mingle in so well with your guests that he becomes one of them – so discrete! Dan has such an amazing talent for capturing ‘moments’ which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was – it’s the natural fun and excitement that is so important to be documented. We didn't ask for one 'posed' shot and hand on our hearts have zero regrets. Dan's ability not to miss a moment is incredible, and his energy and passion comes across in the photos. Not only has Dan captured our wedding day in Italy so beautifully, he is now our friend. All our guests commented on what a top guy he really is! Book book him! These are photos you will have for a lifetime and generations on, he is timeless and captures the day so PERFECTLY and naturally!

Picking Dan as our photographer was by far the best decision we made. If your thinking of having him... don’t think, just book him quick before someone else does!! Communication with him was always easy and professional. It was amazing to get to meet him at our pre wedding shoot. The thought of this made us both super nervous but Dan soon changed that and whole thing felt natural. We had a good laugh, got some great photos and most importantly were filled with confidence. On the wedding Dan and his team went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined, arriving early and staying late. We mainly wanted natural shots which Dan is incredibly talented at capturing but also had decided that we wanted specific group shots. We’d discussed these with him before hand and he coordinated the shots seamlessly on the day. We cannot get over the collection of photos that we’ve been left with, our friends and family have all commented on how amazing they are. Dan, thank you so so much for being apart of our day.

What can we say about Dan, we saw some of his photos from another wedding and really loved his style. He was the only photographer we contacted and we booked him straight away! Best decision we made. From start to end on the day, they were amazing, so friendly with our guests and really put us at ease too. We've just had the photos back and wow. We're blown away. Memories of a lifetime! we can't take Dan and Kris enough. We'll definitely be getting an album, but have no idea how we are going to pick out of all these photos! Thanks so much! Very happy couple here!

Wow, just wow!! We had high expectations for our wedding photos but they have just been blown out of the water. Dan and Kris have captured our day in the most beautiful way. 

From the first time we met Dan we felt instantly comfortable in his presence, and by the time the wedding rolled around it felt more like he was one of our friends attending the wedding as a guest rather than a photographer we were paying - which to me is priceless. 

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!!

Thank you SO SO MUCH!

Dan, 

Whilst we have absolutely no idea where to begin, we sincerely hope that this review can in some way justify just how incredible you were capturing our wedding.

From the day we met you in your studio, looking over samples of your work, to the day we were fortunate enough to spend the evening looking through the finished article, you blew us away with your professionalism, enthusiasm and generally outstanding attitude towards us and our day - It felt as if we were your first and only customers, as if ours was the only wedding you were shooting this year.

You arrived at Hintlesham Hall bang on time on a miserable winter morning, with the biggest smile on your face and the most excitable attitude. You were, as you so often say, buzzing!

Throughout the entire day it was as if you were a ghost, quietly encapsulating each and every special moment, most of which we wouldn't have ever even contemplated to be on...

“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...

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.
