About me

Ginger Snaps Photographer-1

I’m Dan, the man behind the camera, I’m an experienced wedding photographer based in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Over a decade ago I picked up my first camera and immediately fell in love with Wedding photography; since then, I’ve had the pleasure of capturing hundreds of happy couples, locally, regionally and even international destination weddings too!

Being your wedding photographer is a huge privilege and a huge responsibility which is why I will always go the extra mile for my couples to guarantee you get a wedding images that stand the test of time. 

My years of experience and relaxed photo journalistic style allows me to capture the magic of your day as it naturally unfolds. Meaning you won’t miss any of the fun and won’t sacrifice any shots doing so. 

 

From capturing those personal pre-wedding moments through to the celebrations, your wedding day, like your love story deserves to be told through the most natural, uninterrupted way. 

 

I belive I differ other photographers because, actually let some of my recent clients tell you in thier own words…

 

“He feels more like a guest”

Dan was very friendly and professional throughout, he really went above and beyond on our wedding day to help us in so many different ways. He is a very approachable guy who has a fantastic ability to put you at ease, seamlessly moving through our wedding party, feeling more like a guest. He was very easy to contact throughout and made everything nice and simple.

His photos are fantastic, they are so so beautiful, and they get produced with an immensely quick turnaround showing how hard Dan work. We are so thankful to Dan for capturing our beautiful day and we can’t thank him enough!

We would very much highly recommend to anyone looking for an amazing photographer for their wedding day!!

“I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else”

I mean my photos WOW! He was so professional and took pictures all day and up to our first dance! he went above and beyond to make sure we got the best photos! He worked with the venue to make shots happen so us as a couple didn’t have to fo anything.

I am beyond impressed with every single one of my photos and my Husband was so impressed with them! He helped my husband and the groomsmen with their button holes and made sure the stitching at the back of their suit jackets was undone!

All of our guests commented on how good he was getting the group shots.

I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to have taking our pictures on our day!

“Better than ever imagined”

Gingersnaps was top of our list for our wedding photographer from all the hearsay from friends and friends of friends who had used them for their wedding, and wow Dan and Dan did not disappoint, in fact they were better than ever imagined. Both dans were professional, friendly, fun and most of all focused. The day was captured perfectly and we couldn’t be happier with our photos. We got a fantastic preview by 8.30am the day after the wedding and then almost 2000 images edited by the Tuesday morning which was a tiny 3 days after. The candid shots and the shots of the shoots of myself and Connor were amazing, the group shots were streamlined and took no time at all, the true hard work shone through in each picture. Dan 1 really has a unique and admiral vision when it comes to wedding photography. Thanks to you both for putting us at ease, being so fun and easy going and for the service which we cannot describe other than unbeatable.

“You get so much more”

We knew as soon as we started planning our wedding we had to try get Dan for our photographer, having already seen his work on social media it really speaks for itself. However with Dan you get so much more than just incredible photographs, his energy the entire day was unmatched he kept our day flowing from start to finish without it ever feeling rushed or pressured to get certain shots done at certain times.

Our guests couldn’t get enough of him! I can’t speak highly or recommend Dan enough he really captured the essence of “us”, our guests personalities and just the happiness and joy of the entire day.

“Mega speedy turn around”

What can we even say, there’s no words to describe Dan!

We always knew we were in safe hands with Dan but our expectations were well and truly exceeded, with all of his advice during the run up, to his relaxed calming presence in the morning, his comical but very effective way of controlling our guests, and then his mega speedy turn around, everything about the guy is spot on.

That’s not to mention his absolutely phenomenal work, we would book him again in a heartbeat and would recommend anyone to do the same. Thank you so much, the photos and video you did for us of our big day, we will treasure forever, they are amazing and so are you.

“Amazing with our kids”

Where do we even begin…top of our list was a photographer who was great with kids, someone who knew they just wouldn’t stand like statues for hours, but someone who would capture their personalities and make it fun for them too! Dan was AMAZING with our kids, he couldn’t of got it anymore spot on from the moment he arrived in the morning, he had everything running smoothly, great banter and really just understood the day! All our guests from morning to night commented on how great he was!

And then the pictures…we can’t even put into words how over the moon we are with them, they are everything we wanted and more! He captured the atmosphere, every single guest, our children, us, and everything in between! In fact we had 1800+ photos

I would highly highly recommend, worth every single penny and more! Thank you so much for been part of our special day and capturing it so perfectly

“Brilliant at calming her down”

Don’t even know where to begin to explain how much of an incredible photographer Dan is, not just in his work but also in how reassuring and helpful he was throughout contact with him. Jade my wife honestly wouldn’t of been able to cope with how overwhelmed she felt in the morning of the wedding, but with Dan being there he was brilliant at calming her down and helping in every way even down to putting in her earrings for her haha. He was amazing with all the guests and every single one of them had commented on how fabulous he was. He put everyone at ease and just played such a big role in the day. The photos and videos that we have got from him are out of this world, capturing every moment throughout, even the most natural shots. They’re indescribable. We can’t thank him enough.

We would also like to thank other Dan who was brilliant with the men in the morning, and also capturing some insane shots with the drone he had. The double Dan act that they had was just fantastic.

“Nothing was ever too much trouble”

From the moment of seeing Dans work and his relaxed personality at our friend’s wedding, we knew we wanted him for our day! .

Always speedy communication, nothing was ever too much trouble. On the day itself from the minute Dan arrived at the house he put us all at ease, organizing everyone, making sure the finer details were sorted for the pictures and keeping everyone entertained . Throughout the day Dan made every effort to get as many pictures as he could, with it been one of the wettest days, getting portrait pictures outside were a task, in the end we decided to stick to enjoying ourselves and being in the moment, Dan captured every single part of that.

We are absolutely delighted with the pictures, we were not expecting to receive them so quickly (within 2 weeks), Dan even sent preview pictures the morning after! If you are deciding whether to book Dan, do it! You will not be disappointed, pictures are your memories that last a life time
