I’m Danni... the small blonde person in that picture! I’m a fun and laid back wedding photographer who lives just outside the small town of Cannock in Staffordshire, but I do shoot weddings all over the UK and the world. I will head to wherever your wedding day takes me… Literally anywhere… I love to travel!
I live in a cosy little house; which me and my boyfriend are still renovating! I live here with my awesome partner of 13 years; Jay, and our beautiful baby daughter; Peyton (who you can see in the picture at the top of the page..). You will usually find us here on the sofa watching movies and eating great food from the latest Jamie Oliver cookbook. Jay is the cook… I cannot cook to save my life (I once blew up the microwave by putting an actual tin of beans in it…oops) . But I LOVE food!!
My favourite things in the world are travelling, and eating all kinds of street food (I once ate a dried scorpion in Bangkok… it DID NOT taste good!) When I’m not shooting weddings you’ll find me camping somewhere near water (we love to canoe, jet ski and surf! I tried paddle boarding once… but I hit myself in the face with the paddle and broke my nose.. Needless to say I haven’t tried it since!)
I couldn’t live without my friends and family, Harry Potter, and good food. I spend a lot of time at home with my favourite people and nothing makes me happier than when I go round someone’s house and they have a dog. I've made a list of things about me here just so you can get to know me better;
* Becoming a mom is the BEST thing that has ever happened to me
* I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan (possibly slightly obsessive)
* I am still a Disney princess at heart
* Friends is the best T.V show ever made and I will quote it at least once a day
* I am 5ft 1 Inch small. (Trust me the 1inch makes all the difference)
* I have an insanely long tongue
* Me + Peyton watch 101 Dalmatians on average 4 times a day
* I love to travel
* Going out for food and a movie is possibly my most favourite thing to do
* I think Karl Pilkington is a genius
* I cry all the time (seriously… I will cry on your wedding day!)
* I hiccup constantly
*I spend way too many hours on Instagram being a house pervert
*I have the best job in the world!!
On January 2nd 2019, my best friend finally asked me to be his for an eternity! We were away for the weekend at Center Parcs (one of my favourite places ever- where, as a family we traditionally go each year for a winter break, and have done for the past nearly 20 years.) Jay got down on one knee in a little spot in the forest (where we took Peyton to on her first trip there nearly a year before). My mom was there capturing this precious moment, and as Jay began to speak, I burst into tears (and therefore cannot really remember what he was saying.. I’m a pretty loud cryer!) My dad was there, holding Peyton in his arms (she had no idea what was happening, and looked slightly concerned as to why I was crying). But for me it was one of my favourite moments ever. To be surrounded with all the people I love, in the place I love, and to have the boy that I adore declaring his love for me…. It was PERFECT! So now… Finally!! After nearly 13 years waiting… I am also engaged and planning my wedding just like you! We are getting married on the 22nd August 2020 at the stunning Wildwood Bluebell in The Cotswolds (I shot a wedding here in 2017, and instantly knew it was where I wanted to get married.. You can see my blog about it here) Therefore, I am now completely aware of how exciting, fun- but also how daunting and stressful it can be to plan a wedding… so don’t worry.. WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER!
I am really sentimental! Growing up I would spend endless hours going through old photos and videos, and reminiscing over good times with my family. Because of this, I have an obsession with capturing moments … The idea of being able to freeze a moment in time and let it live forever has always amazed me, and is what began my absolute love of photography. This passion, is what inspired me to become a wedding photographer. I’ve been a wedding photographer for about 6 years now and I can’t imagine doing anything else. The best thing about being a wedding photographer is that I get to take awesome photos and watch people having a great time (and sometimes get insanely drunk). I am basically a professional people watcher.. Which if you ask me is the ultimate dream!
My couples love to throw an awesome party, and the last thing they want is a photographer who is super cheesy and makes them pose all day.
My wedding photography style is relaxed and fun. I capture all the funny and silly moments, and let you get on with having an awesome day. I love every aspect of a wedding day but for me, my favourite bit about a wedding day is the speeches! I LOVE a good laugh (and sometimes a cry!).
Your wedding is all about having a WONDERFUL time with your FAVOURITE people. You don’t care about formalities or fancy limos – you just want to EAT, DRINK and be MERRY with your favourite people.
If this sounds like YOU, and you don’t think I’m a total weirdo (or maybe you do and you like it!) then get in touch!
