When I received my wedding photographs back from David I sent him a voice recording of me screaming and cheering because I couldn't type or get into words how ecstatic I was! I loved David's work and booked him over two and a half years before we got married - he is incredibly talented and his style is exactly what we were looking for. We met up with David 3 weeks before the wedding and on meeting him Mads and I both knew we had made the right decision. He immediately made us feel at ease and despite us both feeling a little bit awkward about the 'couple shots', on the day those worries faded away and we really enjoyed it! David's endless enthusiasm and passion about his work makes you excited to be part of it and the dramatic shots I had dreamed about came out even better than I could have hoped. Paige is also incredible and I'm so so happy she was there for my big day - I took an instant liking to her and her efficiency sorting out all the dreaded family shots was insane! They took 5 minutes if that! It is amazing to see such an in tune team! I can't even tell you how many of my guests complimented me on the photographers before they had even seen a single photo. My Nanna's words were 'He can just seen everything before it happens can't he?!'. They were so polite, well mannered and got on so well with my guests but also knew we were on a tight schedule so just got stuff done. When I got my photos back I can't explain just how amazing they are. They tell the story of the day without words and there is not a single picture that I don't like. I couldn't have dreamed that they would be this good! We wanted dramatic but still natural and relaxed and that's exactly what we got. So, so many people have said to me that they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen and Mads and I still can't choose which ones we want to blow up and frame in the house because they are all out of this world! I cannot emphasise enough how brilliant David West Photography is - thank you so so so so so much David and Paige for capturing the best day of my life so perfectly. More...

My wife had her heart set on David capturing our day probably before I'd even proposed.

We booked David to photograph our wedding 2.5 years in advance. I found his website and fell in love with his work straight away. It was important to us that we meet him before booking him so we did and that sealed the deal. He then did a pre-wedding shoot 2 months before our wedding and then our wedding itself on Saturday and was joined by his daughter/glamorous assistant Paige. I have nothing but praise and admiration for this pair of amazing people and the dad/daughter act just makes it that bit better! at both our pre-wed shoot and wedding David was super friendly and interested in us as people, we weren't made to feel like we just another job for him, he makes you feel like you're the most important people in that particular moment, on that particular day. He is constantly switched on, looking for good photo opportunities and even walking into thorn bushes, lying in the sea and sand and standing on dangerous hills, burning his fingers on candles just to get the perfect shot for you. Paige, I don't know what your dad would do without you! you were organised, on it, fast and efficient and constantly wanting to do what we wanted, not to mention super friendly and made me feel more relaxed during the morning prep. Highly recommend David and bonus if he brings Paige along with him! Can't wait to see the results!! More...

David took our wedding photographs a few weeks back at Doxford Hall. He’s such a nice guy and all of our guests said the same. I can’t wait to see our photos. From the moment he arrived until after he left he kept everyone organised and amused. His lovely daughter Paige came with him and she was so friendly and helpful throughout the day. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David. More...

I don't even know where to begin with this review.. David photographed our engagement shoot in Paris 2.5 years ago, when we received the images we were blown away and knew at that point we had to have him for our BIG day in Cyprus. Your work, dedication and time spent on our perfect wedding and not to mention the 'E' shoot in Paris has been impeccable, getting back to my emails, messages etc on the run up to the wedding has been smooth sailing and you put me at ease many a time when I was worried about this and that. On the wedding day...... We was fortunate to have David with us for a fair amount of days so we could do a few day after location shoots, WOW, is all I can say right now till we receive the actual images.. eeekkkkks! You are amazing at what you do, your direction also to help me feel at ease with the camera and to get the best from me/us for your art.. You worked your socks off, rolled around on the floor to get 'the' best images :) you made us laugh, you made us feel comfortable and relaxed and you have blown not only us newly weds away, but also our friends and family. Ladies and gents, I can assure you that you'll never regret booking this fine chap to capture your special day. your in great hands and hes a gem of a guy too... P.s I may even tag along and help him shoot your wedding one day More...

David is an absolute genius! He literally worked non-stop to help us capture the magical moments of our special day. We knew from the beginning that David was the right photographer for us, making us both feel at ease and the pictures speak for themselves. If you are lucky enough to have David as your man then you are guaranteed to have a special wedding album that will give you goosebumps every time you flick through your pictures. The fact that he is such a pleasure to work with is just the icing on the (wedding) cake. Big love xx More...

I honestly cannot rave about David enough, he is the most talented, professional and creative photographer I have ever worked with. From the moment he arrived on our wedding day to the delivery of our photographs today, we could not be happier with his work, attitude and enthusiasm. On the day of our wedding, there was not one thing we had to worry about photo-wise because David had everything covered down to a T! His brilliant humour and friendly nature allowed him to calm any last minute nerves and mix in with our guests perfectly. The results are literally phenomenal!! I can't believe how many moments he was able to capture beautifully without us even noticing. He really REALLY knows his stuff and I would recommend him to anyone. Our photos will be a lasting memory of the best day of our lives and they are above and beyond what we expected! Thank you so much for everything David! :-) xxx More...

We couldn’t have wished for anyone better to photograph our wedding. David is an amazing photographer and it’s such a bonus that he is equally great to be around, chatting to guests and being a key part of your wedding day. He makes you feel so relaxed and at ease, which shows in the end results. Paige was also super and has incredible organisational skills to make the whole day run smoothly! We are so glad we found and chose David to capture our wedding day! Thank you � xxx More...

David is the most unbelievably talented photographer I have seen. Our professional photos by far exceeded all expectations. He is such a lovely person, funny and so easy to work with. He captured every minute of the day so perfectly and most of the time you never noticed he was even there. You can’t compromise on a photographer for your wedding day and David is worth every penny. The quality of his work is excellent, the service outstanding and someone I would recommend to anyone wanting perfect photographs from your perfect day. Thank you so much David x Kat and Kyle, married at Healey Barn 03.08.17 More...

I’ve taken a little time to think about writing this, but in all honesty words cannot express how grateful we are to David. When I first looked him up, I thought I would never be able to book him, so I shopped about. After a couple of disappointments, I bit the bullet and decided to ask... much to my surprise he was available and reasonably priced! Now that the wedding is all over, I can honestly say my photos were definitely one of the best investments for the wedding. We decided to have an engagement shoot to get used to being in front of a camera: immediately we were both put at ease. What’s more we were so impressed with how committed David was to getting the right photo: climbing under and over just about anything, being stung to bits by nettles and lying in puddles. The family have all commented on how stunning the photos are, and everyone thought that David and Paige were an absolute pleasure to have around on the day. Not once did we feel uncomfortable or forced, and some of the images are so creative. Best of all, we spent a long time debating over a videographer, in the end we decided not to and there are no regrets. David has managed to document the entire day perfectly, capturing little moments we didn’t see and presenting them through his own style. I could go on and on... but I’m sure anyone reading this gets the idea. If you’re looking for a photographer, I would definitely take the time to enquire. Thank you so much David... five stars are not enough!! Mr & Mrs Pearce, married 6.9.17 at Doxford Barns More...

Dave photographed our wedding at The South Causey Inn on what was the hottest day of the year I think we have had! He made us all feel at ease and what a really funny genuine guy. So passionate at what he does, which shows in his outstanding photographs. Our pictures are even better than I ever imagined. The amount of comments we have had on our wedding photos has been amazing just like him! Would highly recommend to everyone. Thanks again we LOVE THEM! More...

Wow, what I can I say about David!! We have just received our photos and they are just so amazing. We knew the instant we saw his photos that he had to be our photographer and boy he did not disappoint! ! On the day it was like we had always known him. He made us feel so relaxed and we had so many laughs (I can still picture him in a tree!) and I must mention the wonderful Paige who was just as wonderful. Everyone commented on the day how fantastic he was and it shows in the photos. They are just breathtaking and I can't recommend him enough. Thank you David with providing us with memories we can hold onto forever!!! You're one of a kind! Sam and Phil More...

Although I didn't hire him for my own wedding, I have worked along side him for a wedding at Woodhall Hall. Whilst myself and my father were recording the event, he and his daughter had an incredibly polite and inviting demeanour. As a videographer, he's a pleasure to work by. His work is stunning, his work ethic is quick yet imaginative and his final product is second to none. More...

My husband and I could not be happier with our wedding pictures, we have had so many positive comments from others. David made us feel so comfortable and we didnt know he was there for most of the day which was perfect. No gimmecky, unecessary shots. Our wedding day was rainy with very high winds, yet David went above and beyond and even laid on the ground to capture some great pictures. Would not hesitate to recommend! X More...

It takes more then a good camera to capture an amazing moment and create a memory that's lasts forever.. ..It takes someone with heart. .someone with passion and drive behind it.It takes someone that sees the world more then skin deep,that draws light were we see darkness,that places beauty were we see nothing.And that man behind the camera is David West!

When it came to choosing our wedding photographer it was never going to be an easy task my husband is a photographer himself so when it comes to photography we look at pictures with a different perspective than those that are not photography minded. We spent a week or so viewing every wedding photographers websites within our area & beyond & nothing was good enough so we headed over to the fearless photographers website & found David ..he was only based a short 5 hours away but we knew he was the man for us before we even emailed him!! Lucky for us he was available for our wedding date & was happy to do the road trip,6mths before our wedding we decided to take this road trip ourself to meet the man behind our emails & we were instantly at ease with him ..his banter suited us completely! Over the 18mths of planning our wedding I think our photographer was my most exciting part & come the day before of our wedding & the arrival of David and his amazing side kick Paige everything was in place. David & Paige totally rocked our wedding & we have so many memories of our day that David created ..from the marble sized hail in his hair when I arrived at church to being bundled into the back of his car to being made to climb a fence what mr west wants mr west gets,we wanted amazing pictures & that means some #offroadbride moments! From the sneak peaks we have seen so far David has excelled in every way & beyond our dreams ..I'm writing this review on the eve of receiving our wedding gallery & I'm confident enough to know were going to love every single one! Where ever you are in the world picking David as your wedding photographer will truly be the best investment of your life. I'm so sad that our journey with David is now at an end but he's someone we will follow throughout life. THANK YOU David & Paige for helping to make our wedding not just amazing in moment but for making our memories & photos even more amazing! X More...

David was fantastic !! From the moment we met him at our engagement shoot we knew that we had made the right decision. Although it can feel a little awkward to have a camera pointing at you, David has the ability to make you feel relaxed straight away and you even forget that the camera is there. He was so funny on the wedding day that people are still telling me two weeks on how great our photographer was. Thank you so much, we will definitely put your name forward. We can't wait to see the photos x More...

Thank you so much for being our photographer. I just knew you were the perfect person to do the job even before we met! And you certainly did not disappoint. In fact, you went above and beyond.. I’d go so far as to say, we got more than what we had paid for. I’ve been wanting to write a review for you since I got the photos back but struggled to find the right words to say in order to give your service the feedback it deserves. Before we hired you I had read many of your previous clients’ reviews. A lot of them had described you as a friendly and passionate person, some even saying you felt like a guest or wedding co-ordinator. Well, I can honestly say all of those reviews are true, every single one of them!! You did indeed come across as very friendly and enthusiastically passionate about your work but most of all, you really did feel like one of our wedding guests because you made everyone laugh whilst still doing your job. At times, I did feel like you were our wedding co-ordinator too, making each stage of the day run like clockwork- Thank you. Upon receiving our photos, I think I must have looked at them a million times over and each time I notice little details I didn’t before – I will never ever get bored of looking at them. It’s true what they say; that your wedding day does go by so quickly, it’s gone before you know it. The day after our wedding I couldn’t remember most of what had happened!! Thanks to you though, we are able to relive that day and cherish the memories from the beautiful images you have captured. They make me smile and reminisce on that special day that went by in the blink of an eye. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so so much for the beautiful photos. You really are an amazing man and anyone who looks at your work and doesn’t hire you must be blind or daft! I hope our paths cross again someday xx More...

Having just received our final prints through just brought back how perfect Daves attention to detail made our special day. Nothing was too much trouble and the way he went about searching and getting the perfect shot, which he did, just added to the whole experience. Couple that with his enthusiasm and infectious personality and its like having an extra special guest who creates memories for everyone, not just in prints. Thanks for everything Dave More...

From the second we met David West we knew he was the photographer for us. He went out of his way to accommodate everything we asked for, even arranging to meet us at a place of our convenience as we lived outside of the area. David inspires confidence when you meet him and we felt absolutely comfortable in his advice and suggestions, which we really appreciated. He did everything he could to make our day special and continued to do so throughout the process of organising it. On the day itself he was amazing, and everyone commented on how friendly, personable and brilliant he was at doing what he does. Nothing was too much trouble, and whilst completely unobtrusive, David took control where he needed to and we felt like he was a friend and guest as well as our photographer. This was before we even saw the final product – which is utterly perfect and everything we ever wanted. We are so impressed, overwhelmed and grateful for David’s work and we will treasure the memories that are preserved through his amazing work. It is immediately apparent that David West knows exactly what he is talking about and is at the top of his profession, with stunning images unreplicated elsewhere that we are lucky enough to be able to call our wedding photos! We cannot thank him enough, and would recommend him to anyone looking for the best! We genuinely could not have asked for more. More...

Dave these pics are beyond amazing...you have sent them to me pretty much as I walked into work this morning (new york time) and I have done absolutely nothing but go through them time and time again! and messaged james and my brother matt about how brilliant these are (he has done no work either)!!!! we will all probably be unemployed come tomorrow, but omg these are perfection! you were so much fun to have with us on our big day and i honestly could not recommend a more amazing person for others looking for photographers! i saw that you now do destination weddings, although we are already married you never know when we might need a big life moment capturing and would book you again in a second!! and it would get you to NYC!!! i cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding day so fun and for capturing the best day of our lives!!! xxxx More...

For me a good photographer can capture a moment or an emotion. A great photographer has the ability to do that but then transport back into that moment to relive it. That is what separates David West from everybody else, I know that I can look back on these photos in 30 years and be transported back into my wedding day and that is priceless. The photos we have surpass all expectations we had and can't thank you enough. I couldn't recommend you any higher for anybody looking for a wedding photographer. More...
