Contemporary wedding photographer in Brighton, Sussex.

Hi, my name is Dave Perris and I’m a wedding photographer based in Brighton. I shoot weddings, engagements and civil partnerships in East and West Sussex, Surrey, London and throughout the UK.

Creative wedding photography

I’m an established and creative photographer with a background in the hectic world of press and public relations.
My style is contemporary and relaxed. I try not to intrude too much into your wedding day while making sure I don’t miss any special moments. I’ll take plenty of candid or reportage style photographs during the bride’s preparations, the ceremony and the reception. Most of my clients also want group photos of family and friends, which need to be posed and arranged. Most important of all are the shots of the bride and groom, where I aim get a selection of spontaneous images, combined with some more posed but not too formal shots. I try to make the whole process enjoyable for everyone and end up with a set of enduring photographs that show some sparkle and fun.

Organising your wedding photography

I realise that this is one of the most important days in people’s lives and I do everything I can to make sure my part is well organised. I meet all my clients to get to know them and discuss the wedding in detail. I check venues and locations and work out travelling times so I’m where I’m supposed to be at the right time. I’ll make sure I know the important people on your guest list and what group shots you want. I use some of the best equipment available and make sure I always have backups in case of disasters. Sorting all this out in advance means I can concentrate on getting great pictures on the day.

What people said:

“We were delighted with Dave’s photos and the way he worked with us. He was friendly and relaxed, and really made us feel at ease even though we’re both quite camera shy. We appreciated the fact that he spent time beforehand getting to know us and taking some test photos to see what worked, and thought about locations for shots. On the big day itself he managed to direct everyone without seeming bossy or obtrusive. He captured the essence of the day in all aspects: some lovely, special pictures of us, great group shots, moments from the reception and some great individual portraits. When we look at the pictures, the whole feel of this magical day comes back.”

Kieron and Sue.

“We were really fortunate to find Dave to be the photographer at our son’s wedding. He could not have been more helpful from the outset right through to producing a wonderful album of the day and superb photos for family and friends.
He was at the bride’s house in the morning to capture those lovely getting ready moments and stayed with us well into the evening to give a fantastic record of the day. He has a lovely calm and sensitive manner and manages to get superb shots in a very unobtrusive way.
We wanted a great service and great photos at great value and that is certainly what we got. Thank you again Dave for a wonderful record of a wonderful day – you captured the warmth and spirit perfectly.”

Julia Parsons, Ellie and Dan’s wedding.

“Thanks for everything and doing your bit to make our day so memorable. We will cherish not only your excellent photos but the way you made us feel completely at ease. My favourite is the big grin on Emma’s face as she came out of the house. We will keep in touch.”

Emma and Marcus.

“Thank you so much for the photos they look fantastic, you captured our special day beautifully. We couldn’t be more happy with them, you did a marvelous job of being unobtrusive yet catching people at the right moment. We will be recommending you to any of our friends getting married in the future.”

Julie and Alex.

“Dave really took the time to get to know us and as a result our photographs were really intimate and exactly what we wanted; he particularly helped us with the planning of the group shots before the wedding day and guided us as to what would work best. We were really pleased with the mix of formal and informal shots and several people complimented us on his style and manner and the way in which he put them at their ease. We think we’ve got the perfect record of our day and would definitely recommend him!”

Gill and Chris.

“Thanks to David we have some fantastic wedding photos that we shall treasure for the rest of our lives. We have some amazing natural shots which captured our day perfectly, not only of us but all our guests as well – we were delighted with his work. His preparation, understanding of our brief and seamless execution was second to none. We would have no hesitation in recommending him.”

Claire and Jonathan.
