I’m Dan McCurry, a wedding photographer and videographer in East London.

I create beautiful photography that captures the atmosphere of your day. I don’t hide in the corner with a long lens. I take part in the event. I fit in with everyone, and work by mingling with the guests, so as to create a wedding story up close and personal.

The best photos are when people aren’t posing, when they are being themselves, laughing hugging enjoying a wonderful day. The best posed pictures are of the natural kind of posing, where I just ask the couple to be together, like they would be if they were alone.

 

A Little About Me

London Wedding Photographer

I live next to Victoria park, in Bow. I grew up in Stepney where my dad was Rector of St Dunstan’s, and used to do three weddings every Saturday.

I discovered my eye for a picture when I was a film editor on shows such as BBC News.

Photography went from hobby to profession, and here I am.

WHAT I DO

Bride & Groom photoshoot

Some couples pose for portraits and some let me capture the moments. I will photograph you as you walk and hold hands, kiss and touch each other.

I will pick the perfect light and background for a picture like this. Not much posing, just a couple in love.

Wedding Videography in London

I started out as a video editor on BBC News so I learnt from the best. I try to be different from the usual form. I like to use camera movement to create a sense of style. I tell the story of the couple rather than focus on the details around. I want the film to capture the love of the moment between the bride and groom.

It should look like a movie but soft as romance.

Wedding ceremony photos

The ceremony is sacred and a photographer should be discreet, but must also capture the moments of the vows and rings and first kiss. I judge that balance carefully, to deliver the photos, almost without you noticing I’m there.

Confetti pictures

When the wedding guests shower you with confetti, you are the hero, the one who is admired. I’ll capture images of the joy and happiness of the couple, and the whole or the wedding party.

Wedding ring photos

A photo of wedding rings must show the bond that the rings symbolise. Otherwise, it would just be a picture of two pretty pieces of metal. This photo shows the love behind the rings it makes this picture glow. A permanent reminder of the sentiment and promise of your vows.

Wedding Party Pictures

I love a good party picture. I join in with the dancing, clicking away with my camera and capturing the action up close and personal. That’s how to capture the moments.

Testimonials
