weddings

your day

Weddings are truly amazing occasions. So much love, passion, detail, organisation, and maybe a few tears go into planning the day and once it arrives it goes by so quickly. My aim is to capture all of the emotion, atmosphere and love that is present on your special day so that you have the fondest memories of your most precious moments.

 

I aim to document your day as an observer, not controlling the proceedings. This way I am able catch moments as they unfold, from the bridal preparations up until after the first dance, the emotion in the faces will be genuine and the images will tell the story of the whole day. My way of working will put you and your guests at ease so you can relax and enjoy your day. Of course shots of the bride and groom are essential and I would hope that we find time, while the other guests are having drinks, to sneak away and spend as much, or as little time as you wish on these. In most cases formal shots with guests are also required and I am more than happy to undertake these. I fully understand how individual and important your wedding day is and every last detail is discussed to ensure no moments are overlooked.

 

I am passionate about photography and very honored that people invite me into their lives to capture the emotion and beauty of the people and events that are most dear to them.

I work within Norfolk and Suffolk, and can travel further afield when required. With my services you receive no albums or prints, nor do I offer these. Instead all of the images are supplied on USB in full high resolution so you are able to produce your own, and your guests prints and albums. Also included is a HD slideshow accompanied by music. I post process the images in many different styles many examples of these and my work can be found within the wedding gallery.

About Me

Hello there, my name is Daniel Lightening and welcome to my website. I am a freelance photographer based in Norwich. I live with my beautiful wife Ruth and our three children, Sam, Poppy & Rosie. Also not forgetting Milo & Oscar, our crazy dogs, and DeNiro our cat (who wants a quiet life!) I like to think that I am quite a fun, easy going guy who loves spending time with his family and friends.

 

My passion for photography started when I was a teenager. There is something magical about capturing a moment in time, whether taking a snapshot of friends or your first baby being born, freezing that moment in time for future generations to look back on is one of the many reasons why I love it.

I love being creative and photography gives me that freedom. I have a keen eye for composition and and I am able to capture images in almost any style and post-process them to a very high standard. I feel extremely priviliged that I am able to make a living doing what I love, and it is something that I am thankful for every day.
