In June 2020 I was awarded Wedding Photographer of the Year for The Master Photographers Association (Central Region) with this image.


In February 2020 I was honoured to be awarded Wedding Image of the Year 2019 by The Guild of Photographers with this image.


In March 2018 I was awarded the highly regarded AMPA (Associate Master Photographer Association) photography qualification by the MPA. There are just 2 AMPA qualified photographers in Oxfordshire of which I am the only one that specialises in weddings.

The Associateship of the MPA, is a very prestigious qualification to achieve within the photographic profession, as it takes a great deal of time, work and dedication. After 13 years in business and shooting over 450 weddings I was over the moon to have my work recognised in this way at such a prestigious level by the foremost association for professional photographers.

Paul Cooper FMPA, Chairman of the judging comments, “David is one of the MPA’s most respected wedding photographers and consistently produces photos that capture the emotion of the big day. He has an inherent skill in being able to press the shutter release at just the right moment, and his prints exude a quality and refinement that any professional photographer would be very proud of.”

My weddings panel consisted of a mix of fine art classical images and documentary/reportage style images and I really believe represents my best work as a professional photographer and it can be viewed here

I have been fortunate to win so may awards and nominations for my wedding photography since 2008 so rather than list them all here I’ve pulled out a few highlights I’m particularly proud of in the short video here.
