Hey there, I'm Dan, a wedding photographer based in Basingstoke. I love being a part of my lovely couples special day and I take great pride in getting to know you and your needs before your wedding.
As well as a wedding photographer think of me as a someone who is on hand throughout the day to help you wherever it is needed. I don't just take photographs, I can also provide, handkerchiefs, button hole pins, reassuring words to the mother of the bride and umbrellas for the predictably unpredictable British weather.
But before I get to know you I think it's only fair that you should get to know me...so here goes:
I have lived in Basingstoke for 2 years
I live with my girlfriend and we've been together for 3 years.
We have two 1 year old kittens (can I still call them kittens or are they now cats?), who love to run us ragged
One of my favourite things to do is travel. I want to see as much of the world as I can
My favourite season is autumn as the weather is perfect (in my opinion), plus the colours make for amazing photographs
As well as 2 kittens I also want a dog but we haven't got enough space yet (or so I've been told).
I love my job and feel extremely lucky to photograph amazing couples and their weddings for a living. However, I do sometimes put my camera down and when I do you can find me out for a walk (ok, that's a bad example as I often take my camera on walks...ooops), in a comedy club, the gym or playing with animals...any animals (I just love animals, something that most probably comes from my grandparents being farmers).
My style of Photography
I specialise in woodland and barn weddings. I love all things natural, outdoor and rustic and think that that sort of charm never ages (there's a reason why it has connotations with the picturesque British postcards) and I love capturing the details of wooden signs or cast iron chairs or perhaps an oak table where the grain is gorgeous. Just thinking about it has me almost reaching for my camera. Oh...also, I'm a sucker for animals at a wedding...give me a collie ring bearer any day of the week :)
My style can best be described as contemporary and documentary. I capture the real emotions and story of your special day, incorporating artistic angles and utilizing the setting to create shots ranging from heartfelt to dramatic. Picture giggling bridesmaids showing off their colourful heels and flower girls covering their eyes while the couple kisses. Also picture bride and groom in the middle of a striking landscape or a bridal party staggered in the woods.
