I have been passionate about photography since I bought my first enthusiast camera as a teenager. I love good coffee, Italian food and have a slight obsession with Star Wars. I have three beautiful children and an awesome wife who are the centre of my world. I rarely leave home without my camera. 

I have always enjoyed expressing my creative side, and fell in love with photography as teenager. Ever since, I have been in love with documenting the world around me and I believe that the most fascinating way to tell a story is through photography.  

I love what I do and truly love getting to know so many different couples. There’s no better feeling than being asked to capture the memories from one of the most important days of people’s lives. My approach is a combination of documentary/reportage and creative portraiture - to capture the visual story of your day candidly and naturally, anticipating those precious moments and documenting them forever in print. I won’t take you away from your guests for hours, and I promise to avoid awkward posing at all costs! Instead, I like to get on with unobtrusively photographing all the little details.

Photography, above all else, is about people. It's about the interactions between people, and the fleeting, perfect moments which decorate our lives. Love underpins much of what I do. My love for my children. My love for my wife. My love for photography. My love and passion to always do the right thing. My goal is to ensure that this comes through in every single frame that I capture. My experience has taught me how to anticipate the perfect moment, how to see beauty and adoration through the lens, and I would love to tell your story

David was fantastic at our wedding! He was professional and put us completely at ease (even in my moment of anxious nerves just before the ceremony!). Our guests all commented on how lovely he was and always up for a laugh (we don’t take ourselves too seriously!) We definitely can’t recommend him enough!

We got all we wanted in terms of natural photographs. The album is so well presented. I am so glad we got David to do the wedding shoot. I love the personal touch and that we enjoyed the day from begining to end. I trusted David completly to capture the essence of the day. Thank you David for making this ever lasting
