My journey to becoming a Wedding Photographer

Hey! I'm Dan...

I'm so pleased that you're here. I've been working as a Wedding Photographer for the  past 7 years now and I still can't believe how lucky I am to call this my job.

Born in Bristol and surrounded by beautiful areas, it was inevetible for me to pick up a camera and start taking photos of everything. 

I first picked up a camera at about 10 years old, recording family moments on VHS. Another passion of mine at this time was music. I was a drummer from 8 years old until 16. During this time I played across the UK, as well as Belgium and Holland.

The arts have always been a huge part of my life. I studied Media, Art and Photography in A Level and Television Production at University. Following University I have worked in TV on programmes for Netflix, BBC, Apple and more. 

Naturally, this led to my first Wedding Videography job. I absolutley loved the buzz of a wedding day but I always knew that I wanted to move to photography. After building up a bit of experience I landed my first Wedding to photograph. I've never looked back since.

We fell in love with his pictures (whilst stalking him on Instagram @danhodgephotography) and had great fun at our meetings talking the details!

In 2020 I made about 100 pizzas in my outdoor pizza oven, in the space of a couple of months. I'm still working on perfecting the recipe though! In 2020 I also got engaged!

The past couple of years have just been the craziest! I got married in 2022 (so I guess I'm qualified both sides of the camera now!), I became a home owner and also a dad to my beautiful daughter.

Why not take some time and look through a wedding day album to give you a true insight as to how I approach a wedding day from start-to-finish.
