Customer Reviews

Dale was incredible! When he arrived we were all getting ready and it felt like an instant calming friend had entered the room. He is a professional at what he does and you just know you're in good hands! We didn't want tonnes of posed group photos and we couldn't have been happier! With Dale we were able to relax and enjoy our day and he was just constantly snapping away, capturing real moments! He was there for every emotional moment, and every funny moment too! Our guests loved him as well, with lots of people saying they didn't even feel like a photographer was there at times as he just blended in! Dale is a true professional. We unfortunately got in a pickle with sending his payment to the wrong person! I was in tears, assuming that we would have lost our photographer, but he completely understood and was just all in all a brilliant human with it all! We couldn't recommend Dale enough! He is more than just a photographer, every wedding needs a Dale! Thank you!!

Dale is such an asset to your wedding day! Always unobtrusive, always ready to capture those unposed, natural photos that are the very best memories of your wedding day.

Dale did an amazing job with our wedding. Our engagement shoot was a real opportunity to get to know Dale and his photography. It was important for me as the bride to keep everything as relaxed as possible on the morning of the wedding, and Dale was great at getting lovely photos of prep but without me realising he was even there! Dale took fabulous photos throughout the whole day, from beautiful candid shots to the more traditional group photos. Everything was exactly as we wanted. The photographs arrived on a beautiful engraved USB stick, and it was such a pleasure to watch the slideshow and relive the day all over again. Can't recommend Dale enough, you will not be disappointed.

Dale was just amazing! Right from the first meeting, getting to know him, our engagement shoot, the actual day and all the bits in between! Having Dale as our photographer was easily the best decision we made. I had so many emotions looking through our photo set (we got married less that two weeks ago!!). I'm so pleased with all the photos. He was very understanding of photographs we wanted, as well as being very aware of guests who weren't the most comfortable with photos. If you pick Dale for your photographer, you've made the right choice! I would recommend to absolutely anyone!

Dale did a fantastic job at our wedding. The engagement shoot beforehand was fab, and allowed us the chance to get comfortable in front of the camera and chat with Dale about the order of the day and what kind of photos we'd like. On the day, Dale blended in with the guests very well. You wouldn't know he was there, yet he managed to get some amazing and personable shots. Friendly, professional and high-quality wedding photographer.

Absolutely great having Dale as our photographer for our wedding in September. He was calm and a pleasure to have around. Our photos were lovely and couldnt wait to show them off. Dale really captured some special memories. Really impressed with his natural style of photography with these definitely going on our wall.

We hired Dale for our wedding this year, We met a few months before the wedding and he made us feel very confident that he was an excellent choice, as your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your life you need to feel you've made the right choice and Dale made us feel just that. On the day Dale had some lovely ideas and made us feel very comfortable and with my guests also, it was lovely to have him there and be part of our special day, a very professional and polite man. Thank you Dale

Forget 5 stars, Dale should get 100 stars. I cannot recommend Dale enough - a thoroughly professional, considerate photographer who has an unremarkable talent. As two people who actually hate having our photos taken, Dale was an absolute dream to have at our wedding, and a lot of the time we didn't even realise he was there, yet when we received our photos back, he had somehow managed to capture everything - even things we didn't know about - a cat managed to sneak onto our guest list at our wedding and proved quite a talking point with our guests! I cried the moment I opened our photos and they exceeded all of our expectations - we will keep them and love them forever. Thank you Dale - keep doing what you are doing :-) Alexa & Gavin x

Dale is a fantastic wedding photographer and captured our day perfectly. We are absolutely delighted with all the photographs and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. He is lovely to have around on the day and put all the wedding party at ease.

After first meeting Dale last year we knew that he was the photographer we wanted on our wedding day. The engagement shoot that we had was great and gave us a chance to get used to having photos taken. On the wedding day Dale was calm and blended into the background. We have just had our photos back and we couldn't be happier, they are everything we wanted and more. Thanks again Dale

Having Dale as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He is professional, kind and passionate about his work. This is clearly shown in our engagement and wedding photos as they are faultless. Dale has captured every part of our wedding day perfectly and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. We can't thank you enough Dale.

It is a difficult decision to make when choosing a Photographer for your wedding day because they produce memories for a lifetime. Dale was recommended to us and we were so pleased for that recommendation as he proved to be organised, professional, attentive and calm, whilst at the same time capturing those natural moments, which can be all the more memorable. Additionally his offer to do a Pre-wedding shoot enables both parties to gain a better understanding of each other which helps both parties to feel more relaxed on your wedding day. Dale met and surpassed all of our expectations and we would have no hesitation in recommending him.

We found Dale via a Google search and were impressed with his attentive correspondence during the enquiry stages. We arranged for Dale to visit us at our home and instantly we felt a warmth and great trust in him. We were impressed with his portfolio and really enjoyed his style of work. As Dale was the first photographer we spoke to we decided to take a look at his competition within his price range. We were less than impressed with other photographers attitudes, quality of work and conditions placed upon OUR photographs. This made our decision all the more easier and we booked Dale to capture our special day. His help, attention to detail and professional know-how really put us to ease and he took a great deal of stress off our shoulders in reassuring us that all would be taken care of. The engagement shoot was very enjoyable and helped to build confidence in having our photo taken and also to build a rapport with Dale. We were delighted with the results, despite some windy weather conditions and looked forward to the big day. Come our wedding day Dale was superb. He really took control where he felt he needed to, without being overbearing and gave us and our guests direction to ensure he caught all the details of the day. His manner with people is superb and he did a fantastic job in conducting photo opportunities. The results of his work are first class and we really appreciate his hard work, professionalism and talent in providing us with beautiful images of our wedding day. His talent is clear to see and add this to the fact that Dale is a very friendly and professional fellow, you can be sure that he is the man to capture your big day. Would I book Dale again? Without a moments hesitation. And I implore you to do the same...

Dale photographed us at our wedding in April this year. The photos were amazing and he was an absolute pleasure to have there in the day. Very friendly and unobtrusive and we felt really listened to what we'd asked for. Dale was excellent in the run up to the event keeping on contact and making sure he understood what we wanted for our photographs. We can't recommend him highly enough!

Dale Stephens helped make our wedding day! He captured so many special moments that we will treasure forever. He is very friendly and goes out of his way to help you in any way he can. The wedding packages he offers are excellent value for money and we could not have asked for anything more. We enjoyed both the pre-wedding photo shoot as well as wedding day itself because Dale helped us relax and feel comfortable. We would definitely recommend Dale to anyone getting married!

Dale did a fantastic job with our wedding. He made us feel very relaxed and put other guests at ease. He had some great ideas for some imaginative shots and captured a lot of very natural-looking photos. We were really pleased with the whole service - everything was done exactly as agreed. The photos themselves were amazing - all our family and friends were delighted with them.

Dale was our photographer at our wedding back in August and I'm more than delighted with the photos he's taken for us. He is extremely professional and understands exactly what is needed on the day to take excellent photos. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I cannot put into words how grateful we are to Dale for the most amazing and beautiful wedding photographs. Dale is professional and his photographs say it all, we were delighted with everything from our pre wedding shoot through to the stunning wedding photos. We have received so many compliments on them and I have already passed his business cards to several friends who are getting married soon . We absolutely cannot recommend Dale highly enough - he has given us so many precious memories of a truly beautiful day.

Dale is a fantastic wedding photographer and I would recommend him to everyone. We meet about 2 years ago and I instantly felt comfortable around Dale. It was really important to both myself and hubby that we clicked with our wedding photographer and that they understood what sort of photos we wanted, a mix of natural, artistic and traditional. Dale managed to take the exact photos we were after, he’s extremely professional, and made the whole process so smooth, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. The photographs themselves are truly beautiful. When we watched our slideshow of photographs to music I had a tear in my eye, I now have the tricky job of deciding which photos to have printed…. I love them all!

We chose Dale as our wedding photographer because we found him to be very warm, professional and enthusiastic. He captured our winter wedding beautifully, and we are really happy to have such lovely photos to remind us of our special day.

Dale was our photographer for our wedding. The photos we received are truly amazing and so natural. He made us feel so comfortable whilst having our photos taken and has captured some amazing memories for us. We would highly recommended Dale to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding day.

We can’t recommend Dale highly enough! He made us feel so comfortable with his professionalism and friendly manner that really put us at ease both on our pre-wedding shoot and most importantly on the day itself! The photographs themselves were truly beautiful and Dale has a real talent for taking creative shots and natural photos which really capture the moment. We could not have asked for a better photographer for the most important day of our lives so far and to top it off he is incredible value for money too!

We used Dale last year, as our wedding photographer and were thoroughly impressed by his whole service. He captured a brilliant range of photos of our wedding. Both the important moment and 'family' shots as well as beautiful other candid shots of the venue and guests. Dale was a brilliant wedding photographer and I would thoroughly recommend him.

To give my wedding photography to Dale was the best thing I did. The whole package was very professional. The pre-shoot a couple of months before the wedding allowed us to be more relaxed on the day. Dale is very attentive to detail and spends time planning and understanding your day and your preferences. His “fly on the wall” non-intrusive approach makes for very natural beautiful photographs. I now have a gorgeous musical slideshow which my family and friends really enjoy watching with us.

Dale was amazing, he made use feel so comfortable and helped us every step of the way in decisions. the pre photo shoot was lovely. Our wedding day was amazing and Dale captured every element even things we missed or forgot the photos were stunning and I would and have recommended him highly to anyone.

Dale is a the perfect photographer to work with. Because he is a warm and gentle chap he is really good at helping you to create photos you want. The pre-wedding shoot helped us confirm the style of shots we wanted. On our wedding day Dale was a reassuring presence and was great with the guests. He captured shots that we will treasure forever. Thank you so much Dale. We would highly recommend Dale! Mr & Mrs Harris (Wedding 22 June 2013)

Dale is a fab photographer! You won't regret booking him :-) We really loved our wedding pictures and engagement shoot, which is seriously saying something considering I absolutely hate cameras with a passion. We initially met in a country pub to have a look over his previous work and give him an idea of what we wanted. He was very informative and a genuinely nice person. At the engagement shoot it was obvious he really had listened to what we wanted as the photos and poses were very natural and not staged and awkward. At the wedding Dale integrated fantastically and caught some fab shots when we didn't even know he was looking. The package price is very reasonable and clear and there were no hidden costs which was great. If you are clear with what you want, I am sure you will get it from Dale. I will definitely use Dale again for possible future events. Best wishes! X x

We could not thank Dale enough. He reassured us both ahead of the big day and was happy to do what we wanted. As we wasn't keen on too many staged photos, we asked Dale to capture as many moments of the day. This meant, despite the whirlwind day being a blur, we could piece together how everything unfolded. It also meant all the photos caught people looking natural and relaxed. Dale himself was very personable, and the pre-wedding photo-shoot he did leading up to the big day enabled us to know what would be expected and allowed us to see what would/wouldn't work. We would not hesitating Dale and wish him every success in this industry.

We were really pleased with the service we received from Dale as our wedding photographer. The pre-wedding shoot was a good opportunity to get to know each other, and the photos he produced on the day really reflected our wedding well. He gave us some lovey memories to look back on.

Very Proffessional and amazing value for money! Dale was unfaultable. Fabulous photos that we will treasure for life. He goes out of his way to find out what you want and delivers what he says. The Pre-wedding shots were also fabulous and in a way, just as special as the wedding photos as we were more relaxed! Dale totally did his home work on the lcation and visited/studied the church and venue before hand. Arrived super early and instead of waiting around until the time he was meant to start, took it upon himself to take photos of the venue I was getting ready i, the surroundings and family and friends who were miling around. Dale has a fantastic Artistic Eye so as well as the standard wedding photos ie more poised ones he also took some fantasitc arty ones which captured the essence of the day to a tea. If I was was to do my wedding again, like most fussy brides I would change quite a bit but I would never change getting Dale on board!
