I’m delighted to introduce you to our newest sponsor David J Perkins. David has worked as a wedding photographer since 2000. David takes a photojournalistic approach photographing the day as it unfolds rather than dictating the action. He captures the memories, the laughing, the tears and all the beautiful moments that make a wedding day so special.
I am a full time professional wedding photographer, when I’m not shooting a wedding I am available for my clients to discuss their plans and make sure that I always get the best images possible for them.
My photography is natural and positive, my images are timeless reflections of the whole wedding day.
♥ Why are you a wedding photographer? How did you get in to it?
I have always had a camera, It’s a life long obsession…. at the age of 16 I photographed my cousins wedding, it was pretty tough for a first assignment!! but they were happy and I went on to study photography and was lucky enough to win several competitions and exhibit my work. It was 10 years ago I took up full time wedding photography.
♥ How would you describe your style?
I have a wedding photojournalistic approach I cover each wedding as an assignment photographing the day as it unfolds rather than dictating the action. I capture the memories, the laughing and the tear’s all the beautiful moments that make a wedding a special day.
♥ What advice would you give to a couple when choosing their photographer?
Choose the right photographer for your wedding, If you want great shots but really want the day to be about your wedding then a wedding photojournalist is for you. If you want to spend most of the day on a fantastic long photo-shoot then their are wedding portrait specialists who will give you that.
I really want the couple’s I work with to have fun, to love their photographs as much as their wedding day.
♥ Anything else you’d like to tell us?
I have won awards in the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) they have an ability based admittance policy and I was very pleased to be accepted as a member and overjoyed when I was given awards for my work….
I get lots cards and lovely emails from clients that is what really makes my work special to me, recently I added my business listing to google, you can see them here. I don’t get notifications when reviews are added so when I stumbled across the last couple of reviews added I’m not ashamed to admit that I was brought to tears. I love what I do, its a fabulously rewarding career.
