"A great laugh with you"
We were at ease the whole day, which allowed you to capture elements of the playfulness that naturally takes place between us as a couple. We had a great day and a great laugh with you, and the photos are suberb. Thank you so much for meeting and talking our options through with us and the fab job you did on the day.
"Fantastic service right from start to finish"
We would like to thank Dean for providing a fantastic service right from start to finish. He was very helpful in trying to accomodate all our requests and ideas. On the day his friendly attitude meant that we felt totally comfortable with him. The photographs are stunning, and we were impressed with the speed at which we got them back after the wedding day. We had rain all day, but despite this Dean produced some lovely pictures, and we would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
"We couldn't have wished for any more"
Greg and myself would like to say a massive thank you for our wedding photos. You were a fab photographer and we couldn't have wished for any more. We are so pleased with our photos and even made photo books for our parents as Xmas presents which they loved.You made us feel really at ease having our photos taken as you are so calm and friendly. It was lovely being able to have a joke with you and everything not be taken too seriously which I think really helped to get some good shots. You are very open to ideas, creative and also got the important photos we had asked for. We also liked that you took a mixture of photos so there were some funny and natural ones in there. All our guests thought you were fabulous and commented on how lovely and friendly you were. Half the time we didn't even notice you were there which I think is important especially during the service, but you still managed to get some amazing shots.We would like to wish you all the best with your photography for the future and would definitely recommend you to people we know.Thank you again for our amazing photos. I'm sure we will put many on the our walls and have already managed to get one in a car magazine.
"Quality of the photos and his calm manner"
My wife and I would like to thank Dean for his professional service as our wedding photographer. We're very pleased with the high quality of the photos and his calm manner on the day which helped relax everyone and enjoy our amazing day. We would definitely recommend him.
"Calm but organized and everyone was kept at ease"
We looked long and hard before asking Dean to photograph our wedding, and we couldn't have been happier.
Dean was an absolute star, his vision of how to capture our special day on film was absolutely first class, and the results where perfect.
Dean's approach to the formal photos was top notch, calm but organized and everyone was kept at ease, and at the in-formal times Dean blended into the background and captured some fantastic shots of us and our guests.
A top notch service, by a top notch photographer.
"Some fun and unique photos"
Thank you Dean, for the wonderful photos you produced on our wedding day. You captured the day perfectly from start to finish and we liked your imagination to create some fun and unique photos. You helped to ensure the day was relaxed and fun and many guests said how good you were. We’re pleased that you were recommended to us and we’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone else in the future. All the very best Lee and Fumi

"All in all an amazing experience from our first contact right to the finished product."
When first contacting Dean we got a fantastic reception straight away. He was very professional and polite and willing to come out to our house when we had time. On our first meeting Dean clearly explained all of his packages and made it very personal for us. It was clear that mine and my husbands wedding day was at that time what he cared about. Leading up to the day we met at the venue and walked around together and organised times. On the day Dean turned up promptly and did everything we asked, he came up to the Brides room and you wouldnt even know he was there, he then took great pride during our ceremony again you would know he was there. Dean stayed for the family photos and then into our afternoon always checking we were happy. After our amazing day he still communicated with us congratulating us and arranging to see us again at our home to sort out our album. Very quickly we received our A3 photo book which is simply to die for. All in all an amazing experience from our first contact right to the finished product.
I Love My Job
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” — Aaron Siskind
My love of photography which began years ago as a creative hobby, has gradually developed into a passionate art as I’ve developed my knowledge and skills and discovered the kinds of pictures I excel at producing.
My special interest in photographing people began with taking pictures of friends and family, and has grown into a talent of which I’m particularly proud. I now have many years experience in wedding and commercial photography. I urge you to read my many testimonials from happy newly weds and clients.
I’m a very sociable guy and enjoy being able to interact with people in a way that puts them at ease and produces natural looking pictures rather than awkward poses.
I’m continuing to develop my skills by enrolling on educational courses that enable me to keep up with constantly changing technology. I have considerable knowledge with cameras, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom which enable me to produce outstanding, high quality photographs.
I’m always happy to discuss your ideas and requirements and all packages are flexible, so if you’d like further information, please ring me for an informal chat where I’ll do my best to help you plan your special day.
Q. How many images will I receive?
A. Lots!! I would always expect to deliver over 250 images but this depends on the package you choose. If I'm hired for the whole day expect this number to at least double.
Q. What happens if you are taken ill and cannot make it on the day of our wedding?
A. If on the off chance there is a valid or extremely serious reason for me not being able to make it on your wedding day, I have a choice of two professional photographers available to stand in on the day.
Q. How long do you keep our photographs stored after our wedding and will we have to pay for replacements?
A. A high resolution copy of the photographs you receive will be stored for 5 years. A replacement disc containing your images can be purchased at anytime. The cost of the disc can be found on the Terms and Conditions page of your contract.
Q. Do you carry backup equiptment?
A. All the equiptment I use is manufactured for professional use. Although my cameras and lenses are regularly cleaned and serviced there is always a chance that a failure may take place. For this reason I carry a spare camera body along with the two in use. The same rule applies to lenses.
Q. How long does does it take to receive our photos and for them to be available online?
A. My aim is to deliver your finished photos within a week of the wedding. Although during the busy season please allow up to two weeks. For your photos to be available online, please allow 28 days.
Q. Will you require meals on the day of our wedding?
A. Something to eat and drink at the wedding would be lovely. I normally take this time to have a break, leave you, your family and friends to eat and celebrate. I then prepare for the rest of the day.
Q. Who owns the copyright to the photos?
A.The images you receive belong to you for personal use and to share with friends and family. You may share, print and copy freely. The only right I retain, is for the images not to be passed on for any business purposes. It's quite common for venues to request images from you for use in their advertising. In this instance please pass on my details for them to contact me as they will need permission.
Q. Do you edit photos if subjects have their eyes closed or if a subject needs removing or adding to a photo? A. When capturing important photos on the day, it is general practice to take more than one in case of subjects blinking or any other reasons. The best image will be included in your collection and the editing will have already taken place. For any additional editing a cost will apply. An exact cost can only be quoted on an individual basis as this would depend on the work needed to be carried out.
