Wedding and Portrait Photography in Peterborough That Takes The Time to Capture What You ARE Like, Not Just What You Look Like.

Thank you so much for your beautiful wedding photos. You were thrown in at the deep end at times on the day but remained completely professional and understanding at all times. How you managed to capture so many lovely photos and for us to hardly notice you were there is beyond me! We have so many beautiful photos to look back on in the future years which I know will make us remember every moment. All the photos were touched up and made to look perfect and I really appreciate the extra work you did after giving them to us. Thank you thank you thank you.
Kathryn Girdlestone, Thrapston.

Are you finding it tricky choosing a wedding or portrait photographer? Throughout Peterborough, Oundle, Stamford and St Ives you’ll find dozens of photographers, so how do you know who’s the right one for you?

Why choose me?
My wedding and family portrait pages explain in great detail why you’ll love those specific areas of my photography service. However, the bottom line is that my photography is all about getting to know you and your family and understanding exactly what you want and like. Everything is tailored around you.

You won’t be treated like you’re on a production line.
Many photographers give you a ‘timed slot’. I believe beautiful photography and special moments are rarely captured when you’re working against the clock - especially when children or pets are involved! I give you all the time you need to ensure we create photos that you’ll love.

Whether you want wedding photos, family portraits or photos of your pets I will always take the time to meet you before the big day. This helps me understand what’s important to you and your aspirations for the photography. It also gives you and your family a chance to check me out and feel comfortable with me so everyone feels confident in front of the camera. We can then develop a plan to create a collection of gorgeous photos that will be in a style you like.

Every photo is lovingly enhanced
The creative process continues after the photography session. I’ll spend many hours turning each and every photo into a piece of art. I’ll add colour, contrast, sharpness, creative effects and use other techniques to ensure your photos exceed your expectations.

Every photo is wonderfully presented
You can also choose from a range of exclusive frames that are only sold to professional photographers. The story of your wedding is captured within stunning albums that would grace any coffee table.

I even have amazing specialist portraiture software that shows you how your photos will actually look in your home, before you invest in them. You can instantly choose between different frame styles and sizes and see them superimposed, to scale, inside your home. This makes it easy for you to choose the perfect wall portraits for your décor and wall space.

Money-back guarantee
You have absolutely nothing to lose. If I take your photos and you decide you’re not happy for any reason then you won’t have to pay a penny.

Don't take my word for it!
I could bore you about how my photography has been used by the BBC, CNN, The Wildlife Trust, The Royal National Institute for Deaf People and other illustrious organisations, but I think it sounds better coming from my customers, so please browse my testimonials to read the kind words of some of my clients.

So, if you value owning fine art wall portraits and wedding albums of your family then don’t settle for ‘snaps’; have it done properly by a photographer who’s service screams 'nothing is too much trouble'!

Let's chat about what you'd like - no obligation
Call me on 0792 358 3658 or email me at dan@danwaterscreative.com so we can arrange a time to meet and go through how you'd like me to help.
