Beautiful Documentary Photography, Blended with Stunning Portraits

Hello There...

Welcome to Connect Photography – I’m Dave, a documentary wedding photographer with a passion for taking natural photographs that capture the true essence of a wedding day. I'll catch those special moments as the day unfolds – the loving gazes, the smiles, the laughter and the tears... combine this with my love for creating stunning wedding portraits and I think we have the formula for the perfect wedding photographs.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my website and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Honest Moments

I'll spend most of the day in the background, capturing the day as it happens. The majority of the pictures I take will be completely 'hands off' and natural, so no forced smiles and awkward situations. It's your day, not mine – I want you to be able to look back at the pictures and remember just how your day went.

Stunning Portraits

It's nice to have a few little time-outs throughout your day to go and get some bride/groom portraits. We can pop out a few times for 15 mins or so – this gives us a nice variety of pictures (like sunset and evening shots) without taking you away from your guests too much.

Don't worry if you aren't the most comfortable in front of a camera – My approach to portraits is very relaxed so I won't be spending ages posing you into awkward positions... I want to capture your personalities in the portraits.

I use state of the art lighting to capture stunning, award-winning portraits – timeless pictures that you just won't be able to stop looking at.

Group Shots

I'm at your wedding to capture it in a natural and candid way, but I understand it's not every day you have the people closest to you dressed up and looking smart. Group shots are best done shortly after the ceremony, while all of your guests are still together (and haven’t ran off to the bar yet!)

Group shots take longer than people expect and too many can start to take over a wedding day. My approach is to spend about 20-30 minutes getting shots of your VIP guests (Children, Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, and of course, the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen). We may have a little time left over to get a few fun/interesting group shots too.

Drone & Ariel Photography

Depending on the weather and the venue, we may be able to use a drone to capture some interesting portraits and a group shot of everyone... This can add an exciting and unique angle on your wedding day!

"The best photographer ever! Blended in like a guest but captured every single moment! Had so many compliments from guests on how professional and thorough Dave was on the day... He made our personalities shine, nothing was awkward – he did everything and more for us and we honestly couldn't be happier from start to finish! Would highly recommend to anyone, not only was he a stunning photographer but we had such a laugh. By the end of our wedding I would consider him a friend."

"Dave was honestly the best photographer we could have picked for our day. He made us feel at ease and didn't make us pose for a million pictures. He captured the day so naturally – I don't regret the decision to choose Connect Photography one little bit."

Travel

I am based in Cheshire, but travel all over the UK doing weddings. Up to 50 miles travel is included – for travel beyond this, reasonable travel costs may be required.

Your Investment

Your wedding will be one of the most important days in your life, and when it's all over with you will have your rings and your pictures... Wedding photography is an investment – so invest wisely and make the pictures the best they can be.

It's just £350 to secure the date, which will be deducted from the total cost of the package. The remaining amount can be paid any time, up to one month before the wedding date. If you like, you spread the cost by paying in installments.
