David was incredibly accommodating having had to postpone our wedding multiple times over two years. He took time to get to know us and our needs for the wedding day, and delivered the exact kind of documentary-style shots we were looking for! More importantly, he was the easiest and nicest person to work with throughout the planning process.
David was professional, communicative, and such a joy to work with. The photos that he took were natural (exactly the style that we were looking for) and captured the emotion of the day. We couldn't be happier and would highly recommend him!
I loved David's style of photography from the offset. He somehow manages to tell a story with pictures. There were very few "posed" shots which is what I wanted and we agreed from the first conversation. . Some of the expressions that he caught are just amazing. We dd a pre-shoot (which I'd strongly recommend if you're a bit camera shy) and during that we really felt at ease.David listened to what we wanted and delivered exactly that - we couldn't be happier with our beautiful wedding photos. Thanks again David. Jem & Mike xx
The photos from our wedding were incredible! We didn't even notice him taking them. Thank you so much!
David is AMAZING!!!! We were so lucky to have David as our photographer. He is incredibly talented; we absolutely love the photos he created for us – literally cannot stop looking at them. He captured the sheer joy and love at our wedding and created great memories for us to treasure. Everyone has complimented us on how lovely the photos are. He is a brilliant documentary photographer; we barely noticed him taking photos on the wedding day, which meant that he could take photos of us enjoying the day rather than us being set up for posing all day which was exactly what we wanted. And the group and portrait photos he did take were amazing too, didn’t feel uncomfortable, felt natural and they didn’t take too long so we really could just enjoy our wedding.Not only is his photography great but he is an absolutely lovely man too. From the very start David stood out to us with a personalised video message after we got in contact, which was very touching. He then also drove all the way to the venue (my parents farm) for an e-shoot which was so great of him to do.All in all, we could not recommend David enough and we are so thankful to him for doing such an amazing job at our wedding!ThanksAlison & Chris 🙂
We could not have dreamt of a better photographer than David for our wedding. From our very first interaction with him, it was clear that he cares deeply about his craft and makes it his mission to get to know each individual couple personally to make sure he can understand our vision and deliver exactly as we hoped. David is approachable, personable, intelligent and thoughtful; his attention to detail is astounding, and the whole process was so smooth and stress-free, which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. We have recently received the photos through and they are just stunning; the quality is out of this world, and David really captured the essence of the day exceptionally well. The process to download and order the photos is also slick, professional and modern. We couldn't recommend David highly enough (and the second photographer he hired to assist for the day, Gabi), and they both did a brilliant job of executing a difficult task with lots of moving parts (and many, many guests!) Thanks again!
Thank you so so much for everything. From the moment we got in touch David was so friendly, professional and helpful with our plans. His suggestions and ideas for photos on the day really helped especially as we started planning our wedding during the Lockdowns and Pandemic.We absolutely love the gallery David has created with all the beautiful, funny and perfect moments of our wedding. He really captured the day wonderfully.We are loving looking through the photos and know our friends and family will too.Thank you!

A huge thank you for being our wedding photographer. You were highly recommended by my friend who had used you the year before for her wedding and we are so glad we took this advice. We really appreciated the experience from the very first time we met you on zoom to discuss our plans- so personal, professional and it was clear that you loved doing your job. On the wedding day itself, you ensured that you were ‘not in the way’ whilst we were getting ready, taking very discrete shots and familiarising yourself with my family home so you could photograph anything you deemed appropriate. Our reverend for the ceremony mentioned that you were the only photographer that has ever contacted her prior to the day to discuss specific details which she was thrilled with. You made us feel very relaxed on the day and ensured we had all the photos taken that we had requested, as well as the ad hoc ones. We have only seen preview photos so far but can already tell the rest of the photos taken are going to be amazing. We cannot thank you enough for making quite a nervous couple feel so relaxed and calm.Many thanks,Kim and Dayle
As a professional photographer myself I can tell you that David has an absolute natural eye for an image, and a genuine understanding of how to tell the story of your wedding. When we have worked together he captured the personality and energy of the event perfectly. I would definitely recommend David.
Five stars isn't high enough. When we first saw David's photos we knew he was the perfect photographer for our day and we were not wrong. From the first time we spoke, to the moment he said goodbye at the end of our wedding day, he was everything we had hoped for. He understood our camera-shyness and made us feel comfortable, he was subtle and unobtrusive, and always had a knack for finding the perfect photo.When we saw the Instagram previews a few days after our wedding, we were blown away - but then when he sent us the full album of his work from the day we were totally speechless. He captured all the wonderful, timeless moments perfectly and we could not be happier. Most days we scroll through the photos just for the sheer joy of it.Thank you David!

David is without doubt a superb professional. When our daughter set her wedding date, David just had to be the photographer. Having worked with him a few years ago and therefore appreciating the quality of his images, the decision was a 'no brainer!'In a crowded market David stands out. He knows what he's doing, he spots opportunities and small details which others might miss. His style is reportage so observation is his forté.On top of his talents, David is just a lovely person who moves around unobtrusively. He brings a wealth of experience.Our daughter's wedding day was full of joy and laughter, which David captured so masterfully in the photographs. Seeing them for the first time a few weeks later conjured the day up all over again. I don't think you can ask for more.
David was recommended to us for his style of photography in capturing the ‘little moments’ that happen throughout a wedding and we are both very grateful that he came all the way over to Bristol (in the rain!) for our celebration.The pictures of the formal parts of the occasion are fantastic, and David did a wonderful job of capturing the fun and emotion of the day and evening - from natural shots of all of guests to the unique aspects of our amazing venue, as well as the detail of the decoration and food and that might have easily been missed.Thank you David for the pictures and memories we’ll keep forever!
We were really fortunate that David was available to be our Wedding photographer. He is incredibly talented, very professional and an all round lovely guy to work with. We can't stop looking at our photos, he did such a great job capturing the important moments and the in-between bits that could have easily been missed and mean so much. We are so pleased with the quality of the photos and his use of light and composition is wonderful.I would definitely recommend if you are considering David for your wedding, you won't be disappointed! Thanks again David.
We are very happy we chose David to capture our wedding in Richmond Park! He was brilliant on the day and got on really well with our guests. The photographs are incredible. He has captured us, our families and friends in a very flattering but natural way, with brilliant lighting and lots of personality shining through. We highly recommend.
We are so pleased with the gorgeous pictures David took of our wedding. The lighting on them is beautiful and there is a great mix of couple portraits, documentary style and family shots. His communication throughout the rather long 2 years period before our postponed wedding finally came around was always great. David really took on board all our photo requests, including trekking out to a field to capture golden hour, where we got some lovely shots. He was also completely unobtrusive throughout the day capturing lots of special moments we didn't even realise he was photographing! He also suggested a special photography project when he found out my Mum was making my wedding dress so it has been such a pleasure to work with him on this to document the making process. We would highly recommend David for anyone looking for natural and beautiful photography.
We loved David’s unique creativity and we loved his chilled-out approach. David is brilliant to have with you on your wedding day because he really blends in with your guests and he is really a personable and likeable guy which means his photos are better because people are relaxed around him!The service he provided is excellent and he answered all of our questions and gave us some really good wedding photo advice. When David sent us the link to our photos we were blown away by the quality. We are so so pleased that we chose him as our wedding photographer, and we would 100% recommend him to anyone who is looking for spectacular wedding photography!
I cannot recommend Married to my Camera highly enough. The wedding took place very fast and under difficult personal circumstances, but David was absolutely amazing in getting everything sorted, as well as being accommodating and generous when discussing price (He even offered to donate part of his fee to a charity of our choice!)Incredible communication came in the form of several calls and a video chat to confirm our preferences for the day. David was at the venue early and was so clear and efficient. Most importantly though, the photos are FANTASTIC. We got over 200 and love all of them.Please Please Please use him for your wedding, you won't regret it!
David communicated timely from my request to be our photographer to updates with Covid-19 restrictions, specific shots to capture on our dream day, including our 'first look' into the registry office. There was no stress in our schedule to pause for the perfect photo because David danced around us and our guests without distraction to all our 'us' moments.
We are absolutely delighted with the photos that David took for us of our wedding day. He wonderfully captured the emotions and journey of the day. On the day he was very professional and friendly, easy to get along with. The photos we have now really take us back to the day and they are just beautiful. We couldn't be more pleased.

David was so lovely, easy to communicate with and we are delighted with the photos.
We got in contact with David late in the day due to our original wedding being cancelled due to Covid. He was very accommodating and helpful with our revised date and took the time to make sure he knew what we wanted.He took amazing photos of our wedding and had some innovative ideas to capture more unique moments in different settings. As others reviewers have commented, David can capture smaller weddings very well. He was polite and courteous to our guests and was very easy to work with. Thank you David.

Absolutely nothing but praise for David. A real 5 star service.We were recommended to use David’s services for his unique documentary style and instantly decided we wanted him to snap our wedding.David was easy to talk to and very professional and helpful in the early stages of planning.When our wedding was unfortunately postponed at the start of lockdown, David stayed in touch with us and offered us lots of support.We were lucky enough to get a new date for our wedding at short notice and David very admirably cleared his schedule to ensure he was there to photograph our wedding.The pictures are absolutely amazing and really captured the uniqueness of the day.We will be using David again to capture the photographs for our wedding party once Covid is over.We can not recommend David enough!
I can’t recommend David enough - we had booked him for what was meant to be our ceremony in June - which was obviously a casualty to the COVID19 lockdown (!) - and so instead we decided to go ahead with a small registry office wedding with just our two sets of parents.David’s style was exactly what we wanted, and the pictures were simply amazing - even though we had only 4 guests, the photos really captured the magic of the day - from small details like my bouquet and now-husbands bow tie, to fantastic pictures within the grounds of the registry office with our family, and some very ‘point-in-time’ memories of guests with face masks, and taking our vows with the perspex screen between us and the registrar! The pictures were beautiful, and we can’t wait for David to snap our ‘big day’ in March 2021!
Having "shopped" around for wedding photographers, I kept coming back to David's style - and the fact that he has so many 5 star Google reviews certainly gave some assurance as well!We weren't disappointed - David was really accommodating with us - our initial wedding date was affected by the pandemic so everything was uncertain for quite a while, but David was willing to be flexible and was optimistic for us being able to get married soon! With not much notice, David worked around us, was diligent in ensuring we all knew what was happening on the day and ultimately put our needs above his.On the day he was great, he genuinely became a part of the day and the photos that we got in the end are ones we'll cherish. Thanks David!
David, is an excellent guy and was professional throughout the day. Hardly noticed he was there. The photos are stunning and really captured how special the day was! Thanks again.

David is a brilliant photographer and we were so pleased with the photos he took of our wedding. We loved his natural, documentary style of photography, and he has given us a set of photos which really showcase the joy and happiness of our day. We only had a short amount of time to plan our wedding, but David was really flexible - meeting us both for an introductory chat and also a visit to our venue in advance. We can't recommend him enough.
Where do we start? David was incredible. From the moment I met David a few months before our wedding, I knew instantly that we had made the right choice.On the day of our wedding, David went above & beyond to capture perfect moments of myself & my bridesmaids getting ready at the venue and then headed to the hotel where my husband and his groomsmen were and then back once again to capture some amazing final shots of me in my dress and the final touches! Throughout the whole day, David was professional and had a wonderful sense of humour. He captured amazing moments that we will treasure forever. Whilst the large majority of our photos are candid and of a documentary style, David was also very happy to do some portraits too which are equally as gorgeous! We barely noticed David was there yet the photos he captured are just perfect. So many of our guests have commented on how wonderful his pictures are and can’t believe how discreet he was on the day!Our photos were available on our online gallery whilst we were on our honeymoon so it is clear that David works incredibly hard for his clients after the wedding too! We cannot wait to now receive our prints & album from David!If you are looking for photos of your wedding day that tell your story, then look no further.
David was a brilliant wedding photographer with a great eye for detail. He captured the day perfectly. We really are very happy with our photos and would highly recommend him! Thank you David!
Cannot recommend David enough. His photos of our wedding were fantastic and just what we wanted. He captured the magic of the day perfectly. The standout pictures are of all the guests reactions throughout the day. He took so many wonderful shots with a great sense of humour. Is great to be able to look back on them and see all the bits we didn’t get to see on the day. All the guests said how nice he was and how hard he worked to get the best shots. Just brilliant!
David did a fantastic job for us during our wedding day. The images he has captured are stunning and are now a permanent reminder of a fantastic day. David's style of photography is to capture moments as they happen, and not to stage the moments. This he has managed to do perfectly. David was unobtrusive on the day and friends and family have commented that they hardly noticed him on the day, but yet he managed to get pictures of everyone. We couldn't be happier with our stunning pictures. David has provided us with images that evoke wonderful memories, not just photographs. We would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much David.
Davids photography is truly fantastic. He is proffesional, friendly and discreet. Our wedding photos are perfect and captured so many moments of the day. His style and flare for wedding photography is incredible and we cant recommend David enough.
Rachel & I set about the task of trying to find a photographer for our special day, and I always thought this would be a difficult part of the planning. You need to book well in advance, you cannot see them in operation before, and everyone has different levels of expectancy when it comes to how they want to look in photos. That may be selfish, but I know I didn’t want to look silly on the one day that will be reviewed every year the rest of my life!We did checks, and we did interviews. Searched Instagram, reviews, recommendations - but why did we pick David @ Married to my Camera?• Professional - a great presentation that is prepared. Always responds to emails, flexible with requests. Blended into the background on the day seamlessly.• High quality - all the materials, equipment and communication David uses are high quality. Even his contracts tell you he is high quality.• Reportage Style - just what we wanted for our day, this style allows less frame work more gathering moments throughout with a 20-30% set photos. Have to ask him if he does different styles.• Presentation - he himself is tidy, and his work comes off exactly the same way. Neatly finished with a guaranteed result.• Manner - calm but confident. Enjoys his job and doesn’t need to be fussed over.Overall an excellent photographer & we wish him all the best for the future. Jamie & Rachel
David has a way of capturing moments while not being intrusive with a camera. He helped captured our private vow reading on a gorgeous summer evening and continued a brilliant job during our ceremony the next morning. Our families now have a beautiful album to look back on in years to come.He is responsive to emails (I was coordinating this from Abu Dhabi), accommodating when I had some visa issues, and professional in his job.Thank you David!Janice and Mark
We couldn't recommend David highly enough as a wedding photographer.All we wanted was photos that captured the spirit of our wedding day, and David absolutely did this. The pictures are natural, and capture real moments of exchange, laughter and conversation between people. Many of the pictures we don't even remember David being there, he was so discreet! As two extremely unphotogenic people, in the portraits David managed to make us look great - very much ourselves and the way we felt that day.The whole process was made incredibly easy for us with David's excellent organisation and experience, and all the pictures were delivered very quickly within a couple of weeks. Everyone has been incredibly impressed with the pictures and we are delighted to have such a wonderful record of our wedding day.
12:16 15 Sep 17
David was fantastic on the day and the photos he took were spectacular. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.
David captured our wedding perfectly, the photos are everything we hoped for. He managed to capture every part of the day, and was very discreet throughout. We would thoroughly recommend David and his fantastic service. Thanks again David, Sarah & Ben.

We had a small Nigerian wedding (equivalent to a large English wedding) and we were torn on whether to go with a Nigerian photographer who would know exactly what to expect or to go with David, who from the pictures on his website we thought would bring our pictures to life, and this he did do - way beyond our expectations. We both love our wedding photos, as do our friends and family.David was always very personable from first contact right through to the wedding day. He found a way to accommodate the number of group photos we needed, with his amazing second photographer. We also had a consultation at the venue, which was just what we needed to walk through the day and tell him what we wanted. And most importantly, our pictures arrived in less than 2 weeks - a lovely gift during our honeymoon.We couldn't recommend David more.Dinachi and Onu.

David managed to capture our day so beautifully. He delivered the most incredible shots and we are so happy with them. David was also fantastic to work with, he made us feel at ease and managed to get all the shots he needed whilst remaining as un-intrusive as possible. Our guests commented what a lovely guy he is, and we quite agree!! We thoroughly recommend him!
David was fantastic. So experienced, so talented and very discreet. When you hire David to photograph your wedding you feel 100% sure you are hiring a seasoned professional. Most importantly the photos are perfection. Thank you David. Clare and Nick
I was very happy when David accepted me for his wedding photography mentoring course. Not only is David one of the best wedding photographers in the UK, he is also a brilliant teacher and mentor. In the last three months I have gained invaluable knowledge about the craft and the business. Thanks again!
We’ve just received our photos back after our wedding, and we’re blown away with the end result! We aren’t used to having our photos taken (and didn’t want to spend too long away from guests having ‘posed’ shots) and David was great at making us feel at ease; we’ve ended up with really beautiful shots of us looking relaxed and happy- so couldn’t have asked for more!He achieves the perfect balance of being there to capture everything but not being in the way. A lot of our guests have commented on how discrete and un-intrusive he was during the day- and you can tell this from the pictures- people are genuinely having a good time, and not just posing for the camera.We whole-heartedly recommend David to anyone needing a photographer, from start to finish he has been kind, professional and genuine.

David was an absolute joy to work with during the wedding planning process and on the big day itself. We chose David because his reportage style of photography was perfect for us as neither of us really like posing for photos. We had a handful of portrait photos which look amazing and the rest were really lovely 'sneaky snaps' of our guests and ourselves just enjoying the day.We are absolutely delighted with all of our wedding photos!Thank you so much David!Rebecca and Darrellxxx
David was our first and only choice as our wedding photographer. We found him online, liked what we saw and arranged to meet up. He was very personable, open to our ideas, and clearly very experienced. He was always in regular contact in the run up to our wedding and we felt we were in safe hands.We received our photos two weeks after our wedding and we can't overstate how happy we are with them, they look brilliant! David captured so many happy people enjoying themselves on our wedding day, everything looks so natural and that reminds us what an amazing day both we and our guests had. In other words, it's a compliment to David to say how it's almost as if nobody noticed him as he went about his work. He even drew praise from our other suppliers who commented how he always seemed to be in the right place at the right time.As for the photos, we can't fault their quality. Every time I look over them I notice something new that makes me smile. We hired David for 9 hours' work and he made a point of waiting around after his "shift" was finished to thank us for having him and to say goodbye - he even continued photographing until the moment presented itself to do that. We have only good things to say about him and would recommend him to anyone.
We are so incredibly glad that we choose David as our wedding photographer, and could not be more thrilled with the photos that he has done for us. David also did a pre-wedding shoot in Guildford for us, and he was wonderfully patient with us and our two dogs (who were not the most helpful!) and produced the most gorgeous, natural, summery photos and we were entirely confident that he would do the most amazing job at our wedding.On our wedding day David managed to capture all the beautiful moments that I remember, as well as all the ones I didn't manage to see on the day. It was so lovely looking through them when we got back from our honeymoon, getting to see all the 'behind the scenes' details, food and drinks, friends laughing and our interactions with everyone. We were amazed at the variety of moments David managed to capture, he had the ability to blend into the background but he got absolutely every part of the day.We have such such great feedback from friends and family, my parents house is literally filled with photos from both shoots, and my Mum delights in telling all her friends how wonderful our photographer was!Thank you so much for giving us the best photos, we honestly could not be happier.Emma & Andrew
Luckily for us we had already met David and seen his fantastic work when he photographed my mum's wedding a couple of years ago, so there was no tough decision to make when choosing a photographer for our wedding. As soon as the date was set I was in touch with David and thankfully he wasn't booked already, we would probably have changed the date if he had been!His work is truly beautiful, he captures moments and expressions that evoke all the emotion of the day, when we first looked at our photos I cried, in the middle of a packed train! David has a wonderful nature and on the day you barely notice he is there, yet looking at the photos he seemed to be everywhere!He took some group shots for us, even though this is not his usual style, as is was such a rare occurrence to have our families together. I was anxious to not be away from our guests for too long and he made sure it was a very quick and painless process, but with wonderful results! The portraits he took of my husband and I are really beautiful, and I normally detest myself in photos.We've had so many compliments on how wonderful our photos are, they are exactly what we wanted and we are so, so glad we chose David. It's not something you want to take a chance on, your wedding photos will be happy memories for the rest of your life and you want them to be perfect! With David they certainly will be!

David is a fantastic photographer! He did an engagement shoot for us last summer and photographed our winter wedding in December. From the moment we first met him we felt at ease and the whole process was very relaxed. On our big day David had an amazing ability to be invisible, we hardly noticed him. Even in the middle of winter when the light is not ideal his photos looked spectacular; he captured all the right moments of us, friends and family. We were thrilled to see the photos after our honeymoon and have had so many lovely comments from everyone. We would highly recommend David.
15:39 28 Feb 16
David was professional, approachable and thorough prior to and on the day of our wedding. My husband and I are both extremely camera shy and David listened to our anxieties and took them on board. His subtle approach and reportage style made us feel calm and at ease on the day. We absolutely love the large selection of photos, capturing many amazing memories, as well as those moments we missed. We couldn't recommend David highly enough!
20:50 21 Feb 16
David's ability to capture the emotion and warmth of our wedding day is impressive. We're so pleased we asked David to capture our wedding day and he has produced a stunning collection of beautiful shots we will treasure for years to come. We didn't want lots of staged pictures, and wanted simply to capture the fun of the day and have plenty of pictures of everyone, not just us - and David delivered that effortlessly. Beautiful pictures, beautifully shot - couldn't recommend David highly enough. Thank you David!
We experienced David's work at a friends wedding; looking through the photos after the wedding we inquired who took them, as we were very impressed by the natural photos. It turns out he had actually photographed another friends wedding (who was also at the wedding) and he was there on their recommendation. Getting a recommendation from 2 sets of friends placed David very high on our list. We spoke to another couple of photographers who tried the hard sell, we were much more impressed with David's consultative and caring nature concentrating on the photos we wanted.David blended into the wedding very well and with silent camera work he is very well placed to take those natural shots which are so hard to capture. David also visited us at our house to show examples of previous weddings and visited the venue. It was truly a pleasure to deal with David and we could not be happier with the photos he captured, we will enjoy looking through them for years to come.
19:00 08 Feb 16
My husband and I got married in September 2015 and David was our photographer, he managed to capture a lot of completely natural shots as well as the posed that we particularly wanted, he even took a couple of duty towards the end of the day! He made me feel very comfortable for the pictures and was incredibly professional in his conduct, I would recommend his services to any future brides and grooms out there.
David has a real gift for capturing true emotions and special moments in his photos. We were so pleased with our decision to use him for our wedding, and really delighted with the result: beautiful photos that transport us back to that amazing day whenever we look at them! We would recommend him to everyone!
Excellent service and so unobtrusive we forgot David was there so we are expecting some wonderfully natural photos of our daughter's wedding. The one on David's blog is superb.
David is a fantastic wedding photographer. He was very easy to work with and very responsive whenever we had questions. Also, he made a real effort to understand our taste and style. On the day, he got the balance right of being available but without being intrusive. Most importantly we're delighted with the final pictures. Can't recommend him highly enough.

We decided to get married in Malcesine castle in Lake Garda after Steph had seen some stunning wedding photos online. Jonny was in charge of finding our photographer and came across David. We were drawn to David because of his creative, natural, unposed shots. It was only when doing a little more research did we realise that he was the photographer that had taken the shots that Steph had originally seen that drew us to Malcesine as our destination - we knew then that we had to go with David. We absolutely made the right decision! On the day, David was amazing - he was kind,patient, friendly and seemed to disappear in to the background. Yet at the same time he was able to capture every moment we hoped he would and more. When we got our photos back they were perfect, they exceeded our expectations and somehow David seemed to be everywhere at once capturing every important moment and telling the story of our day through the most wonderful pictures. I would recommend David to anyone. All of our friends and family commented on how fantastic he was and we can't stop looking back at our photos. Thank you so much.
David is a fantastic wedding photographer. We knew when we met him he would create perfect visual memories of our day and he did not disappoint. I would happily recommend him to anyone looking for professional reportage shots.
David is a brilliant photographer, that is clear from one look at his website, but what his website doesn't tell you is what a personal,unique experience he will offer you as your wedding photographer. I chose David because friends had used him and their photos were wonderful, journalistic and full of life, such a welcome antidote to the stuffy, formal photographs of wedding's gone by! David doesn't shepherd, shout or cajole, but he calmly rounds up friends and family for any group photos that you have specified beforehand. I chose not to have many group photos as I wanted David to capture the mood of the day and oh my did he do that! My wedding photographs are photos I will treasure for the rest of my life. They capture moments that I will cherish, the pictures of my friends and family smiling, laughing and having fun, my parents holding hands, every detail of the wedding caught by David's natural eye. So many guests commented on how hard David and his support photographer worked without ever being imposing or getting in the way. They captured everything I could have hoped for! Not many photographers will spend time getting to know you like David does, nor will they put time aside to visit the venue with you or talk about exactly how you want your photos to look. Jack and I are thrilled with our photographs, David is utterly wonderful and so very good at what he does. I cannot recommend him more highly, he captures the magic of the day and with one look at his photos, you are back there, having the best day of your life all over again.
David was fantastic. He captured lots of lovely natural shots without us even noticing, and also captured a lot of amusing moments from the day which made us laugh as we looked back on the images. Our second photographer, Jade, was also brilliant. We couldn't have asked for more.
To say we are absolutely delighted with our wedding album is an understatement. David's photography captured the energy of our day as we remembered it. Visit his blog, the photos there are the quality you will receive for your own wedding. We simply cannot recommend David enough.Lee & Audrey (Sept 2015)
David made us feel completely at ease both in the lead up to our wedding and on the actual day, with his calm, professional manner and unobtrusive style of photography. We were also delighted to receive our beautiful photographs so quickly after our wedding day. I would highly recommend David Weightman.
Extremely professional and well thought out reportage style photographyWe were absolutely delighted with our pictures.
Myself and my partner were recommend to use David as our photographer for our special day and we weren't let down, in fact David went above and beyond from the detail prior to the wedding to the day where he took outstanding photos yet I cant even remembering really seeing him on the day. The photos were sent to us within 4 weeks and the quality of the photos are exceptional.I would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a high quality service from a great guy.Thanks again David.Julian
David was an absolute star throughout the entire process leading up to our big day. We had met him previously at a friend’s wedding, and he’d come so highly recommended that contacting him was a no-brainer as soon as we got engaged! By the time the day arrived, we’d had two preparatory meetings and exchanged plenty of emails, so it felt like a trusted friend was taking our photos rather than just ‘a photographer’. It was easy to see how passionate David is about his work, and we are absolutely delighted with the result; we will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives - our only problem will be in trying to decide which ones to have printed! David really captured the essence of the whole day, which we can now relive whenever we want instead of allowing it to become a distant memory. Our guests have all commented on how beautiful our pictures are, and many of them have said how much they appreciated David’s discreet and unobtrusive nature during the day, which gave them the freedom to just relax and enjoy themselves. We cannot thank David enough for the level of service he gave us in the run-up to our wedding and on the day itself, and we are absolutely overwhelmed by our stunning photos. We will be recommending him to everyone we know!
I met David for Victoria and Chris's wedding at Tithe Barn, and from the start he came across as a very friendly and professional chap! He was very easy to work with, and took some amazing images of the whole wedding day, capturing the happy and fun atmosphere of this fabulous wedding.David, I really look forward to working with you soon.Cheers,Brian
Absolutely loved our wedding photos, they were exactly what we were hoping for. David was very friendly and a pleasure to have at our wedding. The photos are stunning and we felt very relaxed throughout the day thanks to his photographic style.
Beautiful photography, extremely lovely and helpful to liaise with 🙂
So I hate having my photo taken....and so does my (new) husband. We were planning our wedding for June 2014 and after seeing the work on David's website while pondering whether to bother with photo's at all for two definitely not very young people with camera hang ups, I called him. His is a soothing and non intrusive presence, right from that first contact. A glimmer of hope dawned....we met, we talked, me skittish and self conscious, and horribly flustered and late to arrive - but we booked. There is a presence to David that is hard to explain, as he is never in your way, never gives instructions (unless you ask him to) and rarely speaks directly to you to get a shot - but his ears are as faultless as his eye, his timing the same, and his skill, when we saw the shots of our rather low key wedding, just took our breath away. He told a story, of a beautiful, poignant and memorable day with just a single posed shot (which was also beautiful) and never a forced moment anywhere. I doubt I will ever be easy in front of a camera, but David's photographs showed me a person I know (not a frozen rabbit in the headlights of a car, my usual experience) and he caught the subtle unspoken conversations that were happening between myself and my husband throughout the day in some wonderful pictures that show an attention to detail and body language that surprised and delighted us when we saw the end results. Wonderful character shots of friends and relatives too, many so good we think of them as art rather than photographs. Amazing, impeccable timing.....he knows exactly when to press the shutter. Would we use him again? Without hesitation. We would cheerfully pay double what we did (and his prices are extremely fair) knowing how amazing his work is, and feeling so comfortable with his quiet sure footedness - and I would never trust anyone else to take a photo of a memorable occasion again. He listens, he thinks.....he never stops, is always moving, always alert for the shot he wants and you probably won't even know he has taken it such is his subtlety and quiet way of moving and being in your world without intruding in it. That, is real talent, which David has, in abundance.You will love the results.
My husband and I were very unsure as to whether we should book a photographer for our wedding or not. Luckily we decided to book David from Married to My Camera, almost as a last minute whim but it was certainly the best decision we made. The photos are truly beautiful and certainly sum up the day as I remember it. Although my husband and I are both performers we are actually quite a shy couple and the thought of having someone take photos of us all day, was not an appealing one, however, David was not intrusive at all. Apart from the obvious family photos that were requested, we hardly knew he was there. After the ceremony David recommended we head up to an old chapel, near by. We had never been there before but we will certainly visit again. The photos David took, at this particular spot, were show stopping! I couldn't wait to show our family and friends, when we returned from our honeymoon and they were just as impressed. Thank you so much David, I couldn't recommend you more.
David took our wedding pictures over 10 years ago - I believe we may have been one of the first! We treasure the pictures and indeed our kids love them too.We have been able to watch David in action and see his results at the weddings of family and friends since - the wonderful pictures speak for themselves so word spreads!David's photography seems effortless and is inspired. We continue to be amazed by the way he captures such special moments while blending into the background. There is no shouting or rounding up of reluctant family, just all of your guests captured in relaxed, spontaneous happiness.

When I was looking for a photographer for our wedding, days and days(as every bride would do for the stunning photographs!), I wanted someone who is able to capture the special moment beautifully but authentically. Someone has the genuine heart and the eyes with the brilliant techniques so we can enjoy our day purely.David is the one.He photographs not only your dazzling, elegant appearance on the wedding day but also your charming characters and emotions. every delightful moments and details you would appreciate. He brings the photographs alive, colours and harmony.We got absolutely fabulous pieces on ourselves and our marvellous guests as well.We are really lucky that we had him despite our short notice.I don't normally write a review but I would love to share my experience with this excellent photographer.
Such natural and genuine photography. Each photo sparks a real memory so looking through our wedding album will bring back every emotion experienced on the day. Well done David!

We wanted to choose a photographer that really captured the day without the cheesy forced kind of poses. My husband came across the Married to my Camera website and liked David’s documentary style of photography so after meeting him in person and seeing more of his work we decided to book him for our wedding and certainly didn’t regret it - We would 100% recommend him!David is a total professional and always promptly responded to my many emails! On the day he was fantastic and at times we hardly noticed that he was there and yet he still managed to get the most amazing shots.We absolutely LOVE the end result. All of the photos really bring back all the memories of that day and he captured it perfectly.
Thank you so much for our wedding photos. You have captured our special day so beautifully.... we are really pleased with the results and love the mix of candid and formal shots, familiar and quirky, colour and black & white. A couple of our guests commented on how you seemed to be everywhere taking pictures, but were never in the way at any point...a rare skill! We would happily recommend your services to anybody looking for a photographer for their wedding or other special event.(Wedding 6/9/2014 The Talbot Inn. Ripley Village. Surrey)
I work as a wedding celebrant and have now had the pleasure of working with David many times. His photos always capture the unique essence of the day managing to do that most magic of things....capture moments you would never have seen if he hadn't managed to immortalise the moment. As a couple, this is invaluable as you will never be able to see all of your day, David does a magnificent job of doing this for you. Most importantly, on a day that is full from start to finish with all the people you can't wait to see, David manages to do all of this from a position of quiet, unassuming stealth, most of the time you won't even realise he is watching you through his lens, which means he captures the real moments, not the staged. I recommend David highly and am always delighted when I find out he will be with me on the day. His hands are safe hands indeed.
David was great and captured our wedding day exactly as we remembered it! I think the best compliment that we can pay him is to say that a number of the guests commented on how they hardly noticed him being there, and yet he still came up with a fantastic set of photos. Having been to a number of weddings where the photographer seemed to take over, we wanted the opposite and to have someone who blended into the background and captured the day as it happened. We are delighted that we chose him to be our photographer and would definitely recommend him to anyone else!.
The choice of photographer is definitely not something to get wrong and we didn't! David was first class from beginning to end and his photos will be treasured by us all. Our son and daughter were married just over a year apart, and although the weddings were very different in style, he came up trumps for both. He was expert at gauging what would be right for each and consequently the photos were not only a true reflection of the day but also of the personalities of the couples. David was extremely professional, unobtrusive and quietly managed to gather people together when they were needed. He is also calm and has a lovely sense of humour, so was someone great to have around on such an important day. We can't recommend him highly enough.
David (Married to my camera) was excellent from start to finish in the process of the wedding photography. He was the perfect balance of always being 'there' but you not realising he was 'there', just what we were looking for. David listened carefully to what we wanted and the results were just brilliant. We can't thank him enough for capturing such special moments from our big day and would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

It was an absolute pleasure to have you as our wedding photographer, you got involved in the festivities, but were still subtle at the same time. You really made everyone feel at ease. Looking forward to seeing the dog and horse shots. There are some interesting, classic, funny, and touching photos, thank you!
On the day David was incredible. He was able to capture images from so many angles all at once and yet we hardly noticed his presence I've no idea how he did it. He was so patient with us and our family and efficient but not bossy as I've seen at some weddings. We would happily recommend him to any of our friends and family for a brilliant service at very reasonable price.
David was recommended to us by a photographer who had a specific style of reportage photography that I really loved. I was so pleased when we met David as he embodied everything we wanted as our wedding photographer, easy to talk to and genuine. On the day he was very calm and managed to melt away into the background and we all completely forgot his was there. The result was a fantastic journalistic view on our wedding capturing all the key moments that were so special to us. We still continue to look at the photos three months on, and our friends and family absolutely love them as well. The most common comment is how much it captures the overall day perfectly, and they love seeing the build up as they felt they could feel everything that when on in the morning before they would have seen myself or Ben. Thanks so much David for providing us with a perfect set of tangible memories - if that could be such a thing. I would highly recommend David for his incredible reportage wedding photography vision and professionalism.

David was excellent, from discussions prior to my wedding to the viewing after the wedding.We didn't want formal photos or for guests to be hanging around whilst photos were being taken.The photo booth went down a treat and they are some of my favourite photos.I would highly recommend David, he is such a kind professional photographer, he will put you at ease and not be invasive on your special day.I have been to so many weddings since mine, where we have to stand around for ages while the photographer is turning it into their day...... I would have David every time.
Your wedding day is special. We all know this instinctively, but it not until the day itself and long after it you realise just how special it is. The way that day is a nexus point in your life, a moment where everything changes. It is when you realise just how glorious and important the day was and always will be that you will be grateful you chose David Weightman as your photographer.David does not only take beautifully composed pictures, he captures the special. The fleeting moments that sum up everything, the look on a guests’ face of absolute pride and joy in your happiness. He captures the laughter, the surprises, the outpouring of love you experience on that day. You will not only have the pictures that match your memories, but portraits of those you love, reflections of the memories of all those that witnessed and were part of the day.David's professionalism is matched only by his genuine friendliness and the ease at which he will work as a seamless part of the day. Never intrusive, always working for you and utterly reliable, we thoroughly recommend David.

We met many photographers before choosing David to be part of our wedding day in 2009. The choice was simple. Apart from his winning portfolio of thoughtfully composed, perfectly captured images, he made me feel at ease.David blended into our day so well that my bad camera face took the day off!Most importantly, David didn't just photograph the magic of our day; he allowed the magic to happen without imposing himself on it and so became an integral part of it.He surreptitiously captured many beautiful portraits of us and all our guests, funny moments and small details that show his devotion to his work and his creative eye. He silent-footedly, unobtrusively found his way into every part of our day to record it for us, at four different venues - both of us getting ready separately, our church and the reception venue.Throughout the day I remember seeing David genuinely enjoying himself whilst capturing clear, gorgeous images of everyone else enjoying themselves. He even got behind us at various points in the reception to capture our view of what was happening. He took a great shot of our view of everyone jostling and snapping us gleefully while we cut our cake and took several of us doing the cutting too. How does he get everywhere at all times with such swan-like ease?!My husband and I just can't recommend him highly enough!
After a lot of looking around we chose David to be our wedding photographer. We were very impressed with his portfolio and his prices were very reasonable, compared to a lot of others we looked at, and fitted within our budget. We had an initial meeting where we outlined the kind of pictures we were looking for. David visited our wedding venue the week before to familiarise himself with the surroundings and get a few ideas for shots. The day itself went very smoothly with David capturing every special moment in a combination of formal and informal styles, very discreetly, exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend David who is a talented and very professional photographer.
I've known David for a long time and said all along he'd be my choice for a wedding photographer.. Long before I was even getting married! David has a beautiful gift at catching that moment, that laugh, that look or even that great dance move! He's patient and subtle too (always a good thing at weddings) He understands perfectly how to capture the atmosphere of that special day. A real talent.
When it came to picking a wedding photographer I was looking for something special and I was blown away by David's work. I can honestly say he is by far the best wedding photographer I have ever seen. When we met him to see if we liked his pictures, he was polite and welcoming and we really felt at ease. His communications before the wedding were straight forward and consistent. We never once had to question anything, it was great to have a sense utter confidence as there is a lot of stress in planning a wedding. During the build up and proceedings he was busy getting some fantastic shots of the guests and some outstanding scenery shots. I had been to a couple of weddings in the last year and the photographer would bark commands and stand in front of other people trying to get photos, but David managed to get the shots without intruding on the moment. We still look at some of the photos and think "how on earth did he get that one?! We didn't even see him there!" There were some cracking photos from the dance floor, with some incredible angles!. When it came to the personal photo shoot he would ask us what we wanted, then suggest how it could be improved to make the picture as good as it could be. It was so much fun and would gladly do it all again.His composition and technique is amazing and the best thing about it is you get the feeling he truly enjoys the work which is so refreshing these days. There is a real mastery of the craft in his pictures, and for once there is a photographer who doesn't rely on editing the photos as they are just so well done in the first place.The price was incredible for the level of commitment and quality of the pictures. I recommend getting the custom photo book option. You can choose the layout cover to cover and David will create it precisely to your word. It is a beautiful way to show off his hard work.It was an absolute pleasure and he captured our memories in photos that we will treasure for years to come. Honestly if there is one thing you can be certain of, it is that choosing David as your photographer will be the easiest and best decision of your special day.
David is a gifted photographer. His work conveys a deep understanding of the principles of documentary photography.He is able to convey his photography skills through his wedding work with apparent ease. These aren't simply wedding snaps. Engaging compositions, timing, humorous observations and technical prowess are all there in his pictures.There are so many so called 'photographers' shooting weddings who lack creativity and expertise - these individuals should check out David's work and start practising.David avoids gimmick and has a knowledge and appreciation of art that enhances his work with subtle grace.
