Meet the team



Photography has always been a passion of mine, ever since I was a kid, I remember I had a camera at the age of about seven, which had a tiger on the front. I used to love taking pictures on days out with my parents. Scenery, animals at the zoo, steam trains, anything we did I loved to document. Then when I got to college that passion grew. I discovered a love for photographing people, and a desire to be a professional photographer.


In 2008 I established D.B Photography, and am now doing what I love, working with people, and taking great images. I really enjoy what I do, something that is vitally important in this job, the days are long and some months feel like just one long wedding day, but I absolutely love it!


Be it a wedding, a family photo-shoot or a commercial campaign, myself, Jade and Steph give 100%. Making sure your ideas are listened to and delivered upon, creating fab images you will treasure forever!


What does the future hold? Who knows? That's the beauty of photography! Having already photographed a wedding in Santorini in 2016, I'm looking to further the foray into the international wedding scene, and to photograph more weddings across the UK. As well as this, I'm looking forward to working with lots of fantastic families, beautiful models, exciting companies and all you loved up couples.






Steph is my 2nd shooter for wedding days, and having known each other since we were kids, our strong friendship helps to create the best photographs for your big day. The fact that we are able to bounce ideas off each other with ease really does make for the perfect combination. If you choose us for your wedding day coverage, Steph will be the one who will be with the groom to create fun and relaxed images, of the boys, on your wedding morning! Then afterwards, Steph will be present for the rest of the day, shadowing myself, taking ceremony images from other angles, helping to organise photos, and creating her own unique images.




Jade is the behind the scenes wizard of D.B Photography Sussex. Much of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes is down to her very talented hands. Jade deals with much of the correspondence to the website and Facebook page and does so with professionalism and punctuality. Something our company is very proud of. As well as this she does most of the photography post production. She also works as my second shooter on the occasional wedding! As well as this she happens to be my lovely Wife and mother of our beautiful son Jasper. So when I say she is the boss, I truly mean so.




Aleisha has been with our company since 2016 as an assistant for weekday weddings. Her background and passion for art leads her to come up with some truly creative and innovative shots during shoots and weddings. Aleisha is involved in many aspects of our business not just taking the photos, including admin, and post production. She also helps out in the studio, especially during christmas mini session season.
