First of all, please let me thank you on behalf of my husband and I. We are completely over the moon with the whole service we received from you, from our first contact to receiving our photos and beyond. You are your team are a very talented bunch and we can assure you'll be highly recommended by us. You constantly made me feel at ease in the build up; even with my many emails, suggestions and demands and were absolutely fabulous at calming me down on my wedding day. Both Seb and I had so much fun shooting on the day and that's reflected in the gorgeous images you produced. Thank you. Thank you for making me feel beautiful and giving us both memories we will treasure forever. After seeing what you produced for our friends' wedding, our expectations and hopes were high but you certainly surpassed even those. I don't think we could have picked anyone better and I hope we stay in touch for years to come.

DB Photography covered our wedding in October last year and they are absolutely fantastic! Darren makes everything so easy, personable and is also exllecent at organsing other people. We are sooooo in love with the final images. They are the prefect mixture of candid (my fave type of pictures) & posed. You have truly capture the story of the entire day, which is exactly what we wanted. Darren & Aleisha thank you so much for doing an amazing job. We will treasure the photos forever and highly recommend you to anyone looking for a quality wedding photographer! Love, Vicky & Dan x

We happened to come across DB Photography and as soon as we met Darren we knew he was the man to shoot our special day! He made us feel completely at ease and is such a friendly, enthusiastic and passionate photographer.
This was the best decision ever because Darren and Steph on the day were amazing. They worked non stop all day to capture everything we wanted including both arranged and natural shots which we wanted. We never get bored of looking at the photos and we are so lucky to have had such wonderful photographers for the day and beautiful photos to look back on.

After having had some beautiful photos taken by Darren of our baby boy, we also booked him for our wedding day. Fantastic from start to finish and always made us feel at ease. We received an amazing amount of photographs and now just need to decide which ones to display in our home
Would highly recommend! 5 star service

I don't even know where to start...
We ABSOLUTELY are IN LOVE with our wedding photos! It's been 10 months since and we must of looked at them dozens of times since we received them! Finally have them up on our walls (it looks like we are truly those people who have never got over their wedding day) but we're so happy with every single picture! Everytime I see any of them it takes us on this huge emotional amazing rollercoaster that was our wedding day.
Having followed Darren & his work (like a crazy stalker) for a long time because of the pure beauty from his work.... I was in awe of it all. As a wedding photographer myself, I knew how big of a decision this was. Then came the day that I met Darren at his studio he made a huge impression on my husband & I straight away and instantly clicked (which I know is SUCH an important feeling to have when booking your wedding photographer) I loved the way he worked & the way he so effortlessly made us feel comfortable. Darren was amazing throughout the booking process, especially with all the endless questions, requests and suggestions from myself he was always kind & happy to help!
Great prices and packages and we was sold instantly. We booked it & the rest as they say is history!
He arrived on the day look dapper (as usual) and hopped straight into it, I'm not going to lie I was SUPER nervous being on the other end of the camera; I was, however, very aware of the camera but within 10mins I couldn't even tell he was there (I was actually abit worried that he wasn't there at some points) THEY COVERED EVERYTHING & more!!! We had such a laugh and a joke with Darren & Clare, whilst they remained super professional at all times, his artistic eye never seemed to stop for the entirety of the day. Need less to say I was VERY impressed!!! We clicked instantly on a professional level (before he even knew I was a potential client anyway which to me is always key).
I can happily recommend him to ANYONE now (I sort of shout it from the rooftops at the moment) not only on a professional level but now on personal experience.
Our photos is definitely something in the top 4 Things I would save in a fire now (after my husband, kids & Wedding vid) ; I love it! They are bloody beautiful. He's captured every aspect of our day perfectly. He's summed up our families and the love we have for eachother amazingly well.
I didn't think I could love my husband anymore than I do already but after looking through our wedding photos it's made me fall in love with him a million times more!!! seeing our love and the biggest day of our lives eternalised in photo form � It's AMAZING!
So in conclusion- if your reading this looking for reviews for potientially booking DB Photography Sussex for your big day .... look no further. I work in the wedding industry and I truly believe he is one of BEST in the business!!!
Not only have we got beautiful photos thanks to Darren after the most amazing day of our lives but we've also got a friend for life in you Darren! Thank you soooooo soooo soooo much!

Can't recommend DB Photography highly enough! Darren and Steph were very professional, friendly and talented! They had some really different ideas to create some amazing photos which we loved! Not like your basic mainstream wedding photography.
Loved that we had 2 great personalities sharing our special day! Just what you need on your special day! We've only had our preview shots at the moment but they are all we could have wanted and more!
Having 2 photographers was a massive plus for us. Being able to capture various angles of each special moment of the day, created more opportunities of getting the perfect shot!
They both seriously put so much work into our day and their passion for their work is so clear!
If you're currently choosing a wedding photographer- look no further, you've found the best in DB Photography!

We had our wedding Back on the 8th September 2018. We had looked at a few Different photographers and Darren stood out from the others with his work. When we first meet him we knew we would love for him to cover our wedding day! He is a down to earth Genuinely nice guy, my whole bridal party and i loved him! Darren and his assistant Aleisha are a great duo, very fun to be around and make having your photos taken an effortless experience!
Darren found us some lovely spots for Photos at our reception venue and captured our day exactly how we wanted it to be!
We couldn't be happier with the Pictures of our day which were hand delivered when ready, they are all great pictures and capture so many special moments of the day!
We will be sure to use Darren in the future for any more special occasions! Thank you so much!
James & Kristina Sanderson - Wedding Photography
Amazing amazing amazing! Darren and Steph made our wedding day the best! So attentive helping me with my veil, train, hair and capturing mine and my husbands special day with our friends and family, even down to getting ready with a house full of women. Darren could not have been any more helpful and calming! Steph was also fantastic in a house full of groomsmen while they were getting ready, could not recommend them enough just amazing.
Natalie and Liam - Wedding Photography
We had the pleasure of Darren shooting our wedding on the 20th July 18. From initial conversations, nothing was too much trouble. We first met Darren at our chosen venue to have a chat and check out his portfolio. From straight after the meeting we knew we wanted to book Darren for our wedding. We had a great engagement shoot in Brighton a few months before the wedding, the photos were just fab and we knew we had made the right decision. On the day itself Darren and his team made us feel so comfortable which allowed us to fully enjoy the day. We highly recommend!!! Thanks again Darren
Amy & Grant Power - Wedding Photography
So over the moon and completely blown away with our wedding photos which we received last week! The moments captured on camera are such happy memories and have reminded us just how beautiful our wedding day was! Both Darren & Steph were amazing to work with and become such a big part of our day! We really cannot recommend them enough! Thank you once again for capturing our wedding day so beautifully!
Sarah & Adam Carrick - Wedding Photography
We would just like to say a massive thank you to Darren and Steph who photographed our wedding in September. From the moment we met Darren we knew he was going to be the perfect photographer for us; he came to our house for our initial meeting and guided us through everything sharing his knowledge along the way.
Neither of us are massive fans of having our picture taken and both Darren and Steph put us and our guests completely at ease.
We also really enjoyed our engagement shoot with Darren and had the most wonderful pictures to mark both our engagement and our wedding day. Photos we will treasure forever. Cannot Thank you both enough!!
Becki & Pete Convey-Wells - Wedding Photography
Amazing, thank you for all your hard work. Was an absolute pleasure having you on our big day. Great team and lovely people, highly recommend.
Katie & Darren - Wedding Photography
So glad that we chose Darren and Steph to photograph our wedding. The photos are fab and we have so many! They were friendly and everyone felt relaxed around them. Guests commented on how lovely they were.
We had a pre wedding shoot beforehand where Darren photographed us a family and made it into a gorgeous guest book.
Would highly recommend!
Thank you, the Wallace family
Emma & Mark Wallace - Wedding Photography
Just wanted to say that we got our photographs back from Darren last night and are so, so pleased. The fact that Darren gives you a cd and in our case 2 cds of excellent photos works out to be such good value. The photos really brought back such happy memories of our special day and ones that we never saw. Darren has a real eye for a good shot. He made us feel very comfortable on the day as he is such a nice pleasant guy and was really good fun. We had very positive comments from our guests about him also. Steph his assistant was lovely and was great with Sarah's niece. Can't recommend highly enough.
David & Sarah Anderson - Wedding Photography
We've had two shoots with Darren now and both have been fantastic, Darren is super friendly and amazing with my 15 month old who is very skeptical of strangers. His work is beautiful and his studio is warm and welcoming. We look forward to booking him for more family shoots in the future.
Vix Parsons -Family Photography
I have taken my sons for two photo shoots here in the last couple of years. Both times we have had brilliant pictures. It is nice and relaxed during the shoot and Darren is brilliant with the kids, making them laugh and feel at ease. Highly recommended, thank you!!
Katie Matthews -Family Photography
Photographers for my best friends wedding. Darren and Steph were amazing, so relaxed and friendly they felt like they'd known Steph and Chris for years. Their sense of humour was fantastic making it fun for everyone. Can't wait to see the pictures I'm sure they'll be fantastic and have captured all of those special little moments!
Emily Burton (Bridesmaid) - Wedding Photography
If you want high quality photos, in a relaxed and fun environment then look no further! Darren has taken some great headshots and dance shots for me! Very happy! Highly recommended.
Sophie Meeson - Acting/Dancer Headshots
Amazing photography! I have been lucky enough to have had two photo shoots with DB photography Sussex one including a maternity shoot and then a recent family shoot!
Both shoots provided me with a cd full of images and Darren was even able to capture smiles and some gorgeous images of my little girl even though she was reluctant to give them!
Totally made up with the photos and extremely excited to see the outcome of our future cake smash shoot in October!! Thanks again! :-)
Hayley Cross - Maternity and Baby Photography
After meeting with Darren at a wedding fair, immediately he stood out from all the other wedding photographers. Darren was interested in what we wanted from our wedding pictures.
He was friendly, professional and willing to listen to our ideas. I was immediately impressed with his portfolios and quickly showed his website to my husband to be. We contacted Darren shortly after and he was very efficient at arranging a meeting as soon as was convenient for us.
Darren listened to what we was suggesting and then he discussed other possible shots. Darren suggested arranging to meet at the venue so he could really get to know the venue and capture all the photos, which we wanted. He arrived slightly earlier than arranged, to speak with the hotel manager - this gave us complete faith in Darren in his professionalism. Darren at this meeting showed us his new 'photo books' ...... one word "WOW" they were amazing we felt blessed he could do the same with our pictures.
On the day of the wedding everything was covered.... Darren also had an assistant with him so between the two of them they really did capture the special moments of our day. We had pictures of both myself (bride) and my husband getting ready and immediately both Darren and his assistant put us at ease!!! Darren was always there to snap the shots that helped create a lifetime of memories.
Once we received the album .... it was amazing so beautifully put together and a storybook of our special day. Our photos we will always treasure as we have all our loved ones in them. Which will never be able to happen again.
Both me and my husband would recommend Darren to any future brides and husbands to be for his quality, professionalism and friendliness. So much so our best friends are using him for their wedding next year.
Benoit & Jenny Dupont - Wedding Photography
Darren spent so much time with us on the build up to the wedding, when the BIG day came he knew just what we wanted and we were completely at ease with both him & Kelly. We are so pleased with our album and so are our parents, they have captured so much and yet managed to be so unobtrusive. Thanks to you both we have many wonderful photo's to remind us of our special day.
Georgina & Jamie Pike - Wedding Photography
Darren is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is professional and puts the models at ease and gets the best from them. He understands the brief you give him and delivers quality pictures every time. I am very excited to be working with Darren on our next projects.
Jo Brazier -New Style Events- Commercial Photography
Working on location with Darren at Great Fosters in Egham was a total pleasure and the shoot could not have gone better. Darren is a total pro and seriously calm under pressure even when the weather might be against you! On arrival to the venue we quickly got on set and got on with the job at hand moving from one location to another - which in itself was a challenge.
Darren made sure we got all the footage we needed and wasn't afraid to bring his own creative flair to the table. More importantly he directed the shoot with confidence and let his unique talent shine. I would definitely recommend DB Photography for any commercial project or indeed the very best wedding album in Sussex. Darren is the hot new name to look out for in the World of photography.
George Watts (TV's Wedding Fairy) - Commercial Photography
Me and Adam would like to give you a massive thank you for our beautiful wedding pictures. They are fantastic and the book has been put together brilliantly, everyone we have shown has loved it! You did brilliantly on the day, you captured all the pictures we wanted and lots of amazing natural shots. You were very unobtrusive on the day yet managed to get lots of intimate pictures. You put us at ease and it felt very relaxed.
We will treasure our pictures forever!
Again, we would like to give you a massive thank you, I have happily recommended you to lots of my friends already!!
