David Bige

HELLO

I am a Surrey-based wedding photographer. I would describe my photography as modern and authentic.

My photography style is documentary with a blend of artistic elements and my approach is very relaxed. 

I love documenting all the intimate moments that are so easily missed and are often the most beautiful. I have the ability to capture true moments and rich stories in a single frame with next to no disruption.

When I am not photographing weddings I love to be outdoors, cycling and camping.

My promise

Wedding photography is my passion and I take the responsibility of capturing the most important day of your life very seriously.

Starting from the initial engagement with me, all the way to the final touches of the photos I deliver to you, I am dedicated to ensuring your special day is perfectly documented.

My goal is to provide exceptional service to each of my clients, and this commitment doesn’t end when you receive the photo collection. I will always be available to assist with any future needs you may have.

In the end, I am a storyteller, and I would love to be a part of capturing your moment in history.

David was amazing from start to finish and his communication and response to our emails was brilliant. The pre-wedding shoot was a great way for us to get to know him and we had some lovely shots to use on our wedding stationery and website. We had a number of suggestions and ideas which he was more than happy to accommodate. On the day, he arrived early as we both got ready, came to the ceremony and stayed until the end of the reception, capturing formal photos and more importantly to us, loads of really nice candid ones. He seemed to be everywhere but it never felt intrusive. He had lots of suggestions for photos on the day which turned out really well. We also chose to have a short video which is such a lovely record of the day from start to finish. He provided the photos quickly and his website makes it really easy to view and download the photos. We have nothing but good things to say and would highly recommend him.

David is phenomenal! He took our engagement and wedding pictures and the pictures were amazing, and so beautiful. David is super nice, professional and was easily one of the best vendors we worked with when planning our wedding. Not only that, he came highly recommended, and we’ve recommended him on to friends who have also used his services - all can testify to how great a photographer he is!

David is incredible! Going above and beyond in so many instances whilst also managing to capture every single moment from our day was a balance he found with ease. David was able to capture both candid and formal, but was also open to all of our ideas and tailored his approach to our day. Highly recommended!

David photographed our wedding in autumn 2023 and we couldn't be happier we chose him. He was so professional and thoughtful throughout- going above and beyond to deal with train strikes, traffic incidents etc without batting an eyelid or passing on any stress to us. The photos are beautiful, just as we hoped and he was a real asset throughout the day. He organised our large chaotic families to pull off all our requested shots super efficiently as well as capturing really beautiful candid shots. Very grateful for his diligence and kind approach! Definitely recommend!

David is fantastic. He’d taken pictures for my brother’s wedding and we loved the candid pictures from there so we knew we had to book him. He’s extremely professional and so helpful all through the process. And the pictures we’ve had through are so beautiful. We’re so happy

David is a very talented photographer and we are so glad we chose him to do our wedding photography. From the initial meeting all the way up to the wedding day David was polite, punctual and kept us well informed throughout. We would definitely recommend opting for the pre wedding photoshoot as it gave us a great opportunity to meet David and helped put as at ease for the big day. David is extremely reliable and arrived on time as promised. He took some absolutely stunning photographs and is very good at capturing natural moments throughout the day. He was in the background most of the time and allowed us to enjoy our day whilst also grabbing us when he saw a photograph opportunity (such as at sunset). Multiple guests at the wedding told us how great he seemed to be. We would highly recommend him for your wedding photography - fantastic service :).

David was the perfect choice as our wedding photographer. He was so communicative, friendly and calm, and captured our big day with such character. We didn't once notice him taking photos and yet he captured every special moment, and was there from morning until night. We would highly recommend David. Thank you so much for being such an important part of our wedding day!

David was our wedding photographer and we couldn't be any happier with service we have received. He has taken such beautiful photos and he made us both feel so comfortable and at ease, from the moment we met him. Thank you David!

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?

It will take no longer than two to three weeks. I aim to deliver as soon as possible in the highest quality. I will however send you a selection of photos within a few days so you can share them instantly with friends and family.

HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE RECEIVE? WHO CHOOSES THEM?

Generally, the longer I shoot the more photos I take, and therefore it will depend on the package you select. I will not hold myself back from documenting everything. I usually deliver 600-700 photos for a full-day wedding.

DO YOU MAKE ALBUMS?

Yes! Supply albums tailored to your budget. It’s designed by a graphic designer working closely with you to make sure we deliver the best possible photo album you can dream of. Just let me know any time if you decide to order one and I’ll give you a selection of albums we offer and the prices.

ARE YOU INSURED?

Yes; £10 million public liability, and all my gear is insured too.

HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT AND WHEN DO WE PAY YOU?

When booking my services a 30% deposit is required. It is usually paid after I send you all the information you need including the contract.

CAN WE PAY IN INSTALLMENTS?

I do offer instalment payments for all my clients if it’s requested. Just let me know what is the easiest way for you to pay for the booking.

DO YOU OFFER VIDEO PACKAGES?

I have the “Highlight Video” option. It’s a 3-5 minute long video filmed during your day and edited together with a licenced song from an industry-leading music licensing platform.

DO YOU USE A DRONE FOR AERIAL PHOTOS AND VIDEOS?

Yes, I do. I have a licence and insurance and whenever is possible I use a drone.

IS THIS YOUR FULL-TIME JOB?

Yes. And I love it. Normally I shoot around 35 -40 weddings each year, and besides weddings, I do occasionally some cooperate photo and video work.

DO YOU WORK WELL WITH VIDEOGRAPHERS?

Absolutely! I believe capturing your wedding on film is a beautiful concept. It provides you with a cherished memento that you’ll revisit for years to come. Before you decide on a videographer, please consult with me first. While many videographers are fantastic, a few may have a style that differs significantly from mine. Choosing one of them could potentially disrupt the flow of your day and impact our photography time.

I REALLY WANT YOU TO SHOOT MY WEDDING, BUT I’M WORRIED THAT YOU HAVEN’T SHOT AT MY VENUE BEFORE.

I get this question often and the simple answer is don’t be worried. As a photographer, I always look for the light, the lines and cool backdrops, and new photo opportunities. If I worked always in the same place I wouldn’t have the same desire for creativity. I also often visit new venues before the booked wedding with my clients.

WE’RE REALLY AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA… WE’RE CAMERA-SHY! IS THAT OK?

Certainly! 😊 My approach to photography is incredibly laid-back and authentic. In many instances, you may not even realize I’m capturing moments, or you’ll be so immersed in the joy of being with your new spouse that everything unfolds naturally. I don’t believe in rigid posing; instead, I prefer to offer gentle guidance.
