About Danni Beach Wedding Photographer

A bit about me…

I am the mum of two fabulous girls, married to the wonderful Mr Beach, who I have know from our school days. We live in the middle of the beautiful Ashdown Forest in Sussex, with a crazy menagerie of creatures, at the last count 7. I grew up on the forest and love it with a passion but my heart belongs to the sea. All of us (even our dogs ) enjoy water sports from Stand up Paddle boarding (SUP), Surfing,Kayaking and Coasteering. Luckily our girls are as enthusiastic as my husband and I and a lot of our free time is spent on the M4 heading to idilic Pembrokeshire to get wet!

Our wedding day at the wonderful Upwaltham Barns, was one of the best days of my life. It was a day we spent celebrating with the people we love and was truly magical. For me the only concern was the thought of being photographed, I have always been camera shy…..so if this worries you too, I completely understand!

I am passionate about telling the story of your day and creating beautiful art in the process. I am inspired by love, laughter, family and friendship.

My Background

My life long love affair with the camera began at  the age of ten when my Dad bought me my first SLR camera. Since that day I have only ever wanted to be a photographer.

I studied Fine Art Photography at degree level and then went onto complete a Post-Grad in Photojournalism. My professional experiences includes twelve years as a staff photographer for IPC Media, working on magazine titles ranging from Marie Claire and Country Life to Loaded.

Danni Beach Photography has evolved from my experience in Fine Art Photography, Documentary Photography and Photojournalism into the wonderful world of wedding photography, these genres give me a unique perspective as a wedding photographer.  With over a decade of experience as a wedding photographer and several hundred weddings under my belt, I bring professionalism, artistic integrity and a high standard of craftsmanship to your Wedding.

My Style

The key to working as a documentary wedding photographer is to capture those fleeting moments that tell the story of your day, the nerves, the tears and the joy. I aim to be as non-intrusive as possible while photographing everything from the smallest details to the loudest laughs.

My experience as a bride and the feedback from clients confirms that my approach to wedding photography allows you and your guests to truly relax and enjoy your day.

I believe the secret to my success is getting to know you, my client, understanding your vision by listening to your plans and aspirations for your wedding day. Every wedding is unique and I love sharing this journey with you. From the first time we meet over a relaxed cup of tea in my kitchen to you receiving your final images that you can cherish for a life time.

Underpinning everything I do is a strong belief that allowing you and your guests to feel comfortable around me and my camera is fundamental to the way I work. I would love the chance to meet you both, and informally chat about your wedding plans.

A few notes

I am very happy to photograph a handful of formal Group Shots. I ask for a list of these in advance so I can photograph these as quickly and efficiently  as possible so  you can get on with the important business of enjoying your day!

I am very lucky to work closely with many of the top venues in London and the south East, whom I am a recommended wedding photographer for. I have also built up great relationships with numerous other venues and wedding suppliers (Please see my friends page,) this allows me to offer you a range of knowledge and contacts to draw upon if you would like any advice.

Please feel free to pick my brains at any time and I hope to hear from you soon x
