David Poole – Wedding Photographer

UK Wedding Photographer Based in St Albans

I have been a professional photographer for the last twenty eight years since leaving school. Working for several national newspapers including Today, The Sunday Mirror and The Mail On Sunday and have been published in Magazines such as GQ and Vogue. For the last ten years I have mainly been employed to photograph celebrity portraits for several of the sunday supplements as well as being a wedding photographer. Your day will be captured beautifully and you’ll have pictures that will never date or go out of fashion.

About six years ago I started shooting weddings privately. Obviously photography is more than just a passion it has been my whole career and I love the responsibility of capturing one of the most important events in people’s lives. A life spent covering world events and dealing with every sort of person imaginable has put me in good stead to be able to capture a wedding day the way it is meant to be.

It is important when choosing your wedding photographer to look through complete weddings that they have shot as some can have a nice portfolio but the standard isn’t as high all through the wedding where as the best ¬†photographers will have that consistency all through the day. Weather is something that no one can accurately predict especially in the UK, you need to be totally confident that whatever happens on the day your photographer will be able to cope. Some of my favourite pictures have been on rainy windy days and although this isn’t ideal for you it should in no way effect the quality of your photographs.

I shoot in a reportage style but in my experience people like some traditional shots as well so I try to make these as interesting as possible. Each wedding is a unique event in its own right and the pictures should reflect that in the best way possible. The one thing that every couple is left with after the event is the photographs so getting the right wedding photographer is incredibly important and a decision that shouldn’t rushed in to.

I currently shoot regularly for You Magazine, The Mail On Sunday and cover weddings all over the U.K and Ibiza where I have a second home, my UK home is in St.Albans where I live with my wife and four sons and Border Collie named Ziggy.
