Wedding Photography

When it comes to a wedding I know that this is one of the most important days of your life and I feel it should be treated as such. My photographs will capture the different elements of the day in a way that reflects the individual atmosphere that every wedding, by nature, has. I will work with you before the day to find out as much as possible about you and your particular approach to your wedding. This ensures that I know and understand your arrangements, expectations and desires so that I can include them in my own approach. I take a mixture of both classically arranged photos and more natural reportage-style shots to capture the full range of events and atmosphere of the day , however the exact balance of these can be adjusted to suit every couple. I am aware that not everyone is comfortable being the centre of attention and seeing a camera every moment of the day can make a happy day turn into a stressful one. For these situations I aim to disappear into the background as much as possible amongst your guests whilst still ensuring that you have beautiful photos at the end of the day you can cherish for ever. Every wedding is different so please feel free to contact me to discuss your day and to see how Dominic Smith Photography can work with you.

Portrait Photography

Whether you are looking for a traditional family portrait, photos of a newborn or pregnancy photos (bump photos) it is always my aim to make sure you are as comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera as possible. I can bring my studio to you or we can shoot on location depending on your specific preferences. I offer a package tailored to your individual needs so please contact me to discuss your individual requirements and I can draw up a package to suit you.

I met Dominic and his partner at a Wedding Fayre and from the moment we met I knew this was the team I wanted to capture our wedding day. I hate having my photo taken and I was terrified of having pictures done but was torn because I so desperately wanted to preserve the memories of our special day. I shouldn’t have worried. Dominic is funny, kind, engaging and just wonderful at his job. Dom blended in so well that I barely noticed him snapping away which resulted in some beautiful ‘real’ moments being captured. The thing I can’t rave enough about however, is how well Dom captured the love of the day; that is such a gift. He caught looks that will enable me to feel the emotion of the moment for years to come and this is so precious. Dominic also captured the importance of the little things. My dad has passed away and so we had a few little ways of incorporating him in the day. Without instruction, Dom picked up on this and put together some truly beautiful images which brought dad right into the whole day. We got the package which is one large framed pic, 20 prints and a USB stick in a presentation box which contained over 700 images. The value for money is unreal. I cannot thank Dominic enough, he has now be named ‘The Wizard’ in our home due to his magical skills! I would recommend Dominic to one and all. From the moment we met, to him coming to our home to discuss our requirements and through to seeing the pictures he has been professional, kind, helpful and a pleasure to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Mr & Mrs Giles xread more

We cannot thank Dominic and his assistant enough for capturing the magical moments from our wedding day. We love the natural shots and they really tell the story of our day. Dominic put all the guests at ease when doing the group shots. For most of the day we did not even realise he was taking photos and that enabled him to capture parts of the day we didn’t know had happened. This was a lovely surprise when viewing our photo gallery. We particularly love the shots of our wedding rings and feel this is unique and a lovely memory to have. Dominic’s communication has always been very quick and he delivers exactly what he promises at the beginning. We highly recommend Dominic if you are looking for a wedding photographer – you will not be disappointed!read more

We know it sounds cheesy but it is so hard to put into words the joy and gratitude we feel for Dominic (and his lovely assistant Maky) for the amazing job he did shooting our wedding day and making it extra special. It is really important to have a photographer that you connect with and one that draws you to their style and we had that instantly with Dominic. From the moment we crossed his work at a wedding fair in the very early days of wedding planning, we knew we had to have him shoot our wedding day and held every limb and appendage crossed whilst he checked his schedule! Lucky for us, he had our date free and we have never looked back since. You will know by looking at Dominic’s work that he captures very candid and beautiful snaps in such a way that can only be described as truly elegant, but you will never really know just how well he does this until the day he sends that breath-taking sneak-peek link to you or the full album of your big day. What he does is nothing short of magic! It is important to note that we are a very camera-shy and anti-spotlight couple (although I think Dominic will disagree with this now!) and were extremely worried about being the centre of attention, especially having 2 cameras in our faces – but we really shouldn’t have been worried at all. Both Dominic and Maky were so unobtrusive you could hardly tell they were there, yet somehow they were everywhere and managed to capture moments we didn’t even know they were part of! It really helped having such a warm, friendly and funny photographer and one that is so easy to get on with as it made us feel super comfortable around them and all of our guests echoed this opinion as well.  Dominic and Maky worked tirelessly from the morning of our wedding to very late in the evening snapping away constantly and all the while made what they do seem so effortless and like nothing was too much trouble. Dominic even sent over our sneak-peek photos at 1.30am after having stayed into the late evening to capture the perfect sunset and sparkler shots for us – is there anything he can’t do?! We then received our album in lightning speed, although at no detriment to the quality or selection (this was no mean feat as he had thousands of photos to go through, select and fine tune!) and in our opinion, this says so much about Dominic’s work ethic and character. Going through the photos he had taken was so special for us – we could 100% feel the love, laughter and happiness in each and every shot and it was as if we were reliving the day again through his camera lens, whilst feeling all the emotions of the day at the same time. Small details often overlooked or forgotten, but were essential to the success and joy of the day, were also caught and will be cherished for a lifetime. It really shows in our photographs just how much work Dominic and Maky put into capturing every moment, and they did it perfectly – we absolutely cannot thank them enough. Dominic truly went above and beyond, and because of this our photos are everything we wanted and more. Dominic will always hold a special place in our hearts and when the time comes, there will be no one else we would rather take our baby photos!  So if you were uhm-ing and ahh-ing about booking Dominic Smith Photography for your big day, then you really needn’t look any further. We wholeheartedly recommend Dominic to you – he has all the greatest qualities you could ask for in a photographer: competitive prices, responsiveness, understanding, the ability to be in 15 places at once, a keen eye, a positive attitude, assertiveness and last but not least a WICKED sense of humour. The only thing we are unhappy about is the fact we are no longer working with him!read more

Dominic was excellent, we first noticed his photos at a fayre and loved his natural style. His ability to capture a moment without the people even noticing. He was also the only photographer that didnt hound us for a deposit and allowed us time to browse his albums and make our minds up in our time. Throughout the whole process Dominic allowed us to chose our style and how we wanted him to behave on the day. He kept us updated with the arrival date of our actual photos and the final presentation and USB gift box was amazing. The photo quality and range was brilliant. He captured some absolutly stunning moment of our day.read more
