Let us tell the story of your Wedding Day – a day filled with anticipation, love, joy and magic – photographed in a way that celebrates the unique spirit of your relationship and reflects the style and vibe of your day.
Whether you’re going for a casual, laid back affair or a chic black tie event, I will work with you to create amazing photos that you will cherish for the rest of your lives together. I offer a range of wedding packages to suit all needs and budgets around East and West Sussex, from Brighton to Worthing.
For example, if yours is a small, intimate wedding where the ceremony and reception are at the same venue, you may choose to book fewer hours than one where the party is travelling from one venue to the other.
Other considerations include whether you want getting ready shots or photos of the first dance. As part of our consultation I can advise on the best option to meet your needs and what we can achieve in the time booked.

The Added Extras
Second Photographer - £195
Having a second photographer is great if you are inviting a lot of guests and fancy having the groom preparations covered. Please contact for more information. You will love having two of us on board!
Couple Shoot - £250
You don't need to be getting married, or even engaged to want some fantastic photographs of just the two of you. No matter what your story, if you'd like some super cool photos of you as a couple then get in touch. The shoot can be at a location of your choice, but it's always great if it's somewhere special to both of you. Nowhere is out of the question, as I've even photographed a couple shoot in Paris. Couple sessions are a great way for you to get to know me and my style before your big day, they are also really fun! Sessions are held on location and last up to 2 hours. We can pick a location together or I am very happy to go with your ideas. After the session you will receive all images from the day ready to download in your own online gallery.
There are many extras available including a variety of professional wedding photography albums, couple shoots, and full colour processing, to name a few. I ask for a £100 deposit and a signed contract to secure me as your wedding photographer and can supply an additional fully professional photographer should you wish to add one to your package. Examples of the beautiful albums that I offer can be found below.
"Darren is simply AMAZING! He’s really more than a photographer! From the beginning through to the end, he offered endless support, advice and guidance. On the day itself we felt in safe hands and he was very experienced and his professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have the best day of your lives! We couldn’t be more than happier with the results, he’s seriously talented and genuinely love what he do! If you’re thinking of booking him for your wedding, do it! You won’t be disappointed. He have captured memories we will cherish forever! Thank you!"

I promise not to hassle you!
I am passionate about what I do! It’s more than just a business… it’s something that’s a part of me and that I love doing. Finding a photographer that has a true passion for what they do will almost always translate into beautiful images that you’ll cherish for years to come. I am always trying to better my photography. I never settle and I'm always striving to improve and become better at my profession. This goes hand in hand with dedication and passion, and without the desire to learn and keep moving forward most photographers will stagnate and it will show in their work.
Laid back and relaxed; I go with the flow and won’t try to run your wedding. I know how hectic and stressful your wedding day can be, and I work very hard to not only not add to that stress, but to also keep you relaxed and laughing. I may make some suggestions during the day - for example, where to stand for the cake cutting, or when we could step out to try for a sunset shoot etc, but I am far from a control freak.
Detail oriented; I check focus on every file at 100%, files are straightened and colours perfected. On the day photos are not messy and light is flattering.
Best equipment; I have a bag full of the very best lenses and cameras. These do make a difference.
Rigorous photo backup policy; to minimise any issues, on the day your photos are written to two cards in my camera. At home, they're copied to 4 different places, including one off-site location.
Fun and friendly; you pretty much won't notice me since I'll seem like a guest on the day (except when it come to organising people).
Extremely passionate; this isn't just a job to me. It's been commented many times that it's obvious I love photographing weddings, and that's true.
These photos will give you a good idea of whether my style might be right for you.
