DRAMATIC, BEAUTIFUL, PERFECTLY TIMED PHOTOGRAPHY
Your wedding day is an elaborate tapestry made up of dazzlingly precious moments stitched together to create something unforgettable. I pride myself on never missing even the most fleeting of memories: a father walking his daughter down the aisle to meet her groom; that very first time the groom catches sight of his bride; that first kiss as man and wife. These are the kind of uniquely beautiful shots that simply don’t repeat themselves.
A WEDDING ALBUM IS
to future generations
AN EXPERIENCED MASTER PHOTOGRAPHER
A qualified and highly experienced professional photographer for the past 12 years, I have shot literally hundreds of weddings and won over 100 UK and International awards for my wedding photography work.
I am currently the only wedding photographer in Oxfordshire to hold the Associate Qualification level from the Master Photographers Association (MPA) and you can view my successful panel here DAVID BOSTOCK AMPA
I also hold a Licentiateship from both the BPPA and The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and so any couple choosing me to photograph their wedding can be assured that they are in the very safest and experienced of hands. I was awarded the much-coveted Master Photographers Association ‘Wedding Day and Celebration’ Winner. I was also nominated by GoHen as ‘One of the Top 50 Wedding Photographers in the UK’ and just this year in 2020 was overall winner of ‘Wedding Image of the Year ‘for The Guild of Photographers.
I have been awarded a Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) Silver Distinction Award in Wedding Photojournalism and I have qualified to Associate level of the WPPI for my International Award winning photography.
But far more important than qualifications and awards are the things my clients say when they see their finished results and the images I produce for my clients.

WHY HIRE ME? – A SEASONED AND QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL MASTER PHOTOGRAPHER
It takes a photographer many, many years to define their own style and I have had more than 10 years of exclusively photographing over 400 weddings in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, London Weddings and further afield to hone my craft.
I am now actively recommended by 15 top wedding venues in the home counties including Hedsor House, Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Stoke Park Club, Cliveden House, Caswell House, Eynsham Hall and The Dairy Waddesdon as one of their preferred partner photographers. I am extremely proud of the fact they choose to trust and recommend me to their wedding couples.
I’m a firm believer that if you want to be an expert in your chosen field you need to ‘walk the walk’ not ‘talk the talk’ and there is simply no substitute for shooting weddings week in week out in every type of weather condition. Sure, of course every couple hopes for the perfect weather for their big day, as do I for them, but if the weather is less than kind you can be confident that I have the experience to cope. Sun, rain, hailstones as big as golf balls (hammering on the marquee roof so loud that you can barely hear the speeches!), heavy snow where only a neighbours 4×4 has been able to get the bride to the church, hurricane force winds that have sent veils sailing away and pretty much everything else you could think of I’ve been there seen it done it and definitely have the t-shirt!
I’ve photographed weddings of all sizes from two people intimate ceremonies with only the couple, the registrar and myself present with me acting as their witness, up to 500-600 guests at Asian weddings running over several days. I have lots of experience photographing non-religious civil and celebrant ceremonies, traditional English church weddings, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim Indian weddings, Mehndi ceremonies, Persian weddings, Chinese Weddings, Malay Weddings, Danish weddings and pretty much anything else you can think of. Indoor ceremonies in churches, romantically lit by just candlelight and so dark that I can only just see my camera, to the brightest of sunny outdoor ceremonies.
I work with only the highest quality Canon professional full frame cameras and a range of super-fast professional lenses. I have used the Canon professional system since day one of my professional photography career that I know inside out and know they will deliver high quality images when the lighting gets really tough. If there is light there I will use it, if not I bring my own and create light.
Couples choosing me to document their wedding through my lens really are in the safest of hands. Why would you not possibly hire the best photographer you can afford for one of the most important days in your life?
