Couple Testimonials

Sian & Ben

“When looking for a wedding photographer we wanted someone who would capture the magic of our day. We were drawn to his bright, fun and creative photographs.

When we first met with Damien, he put us at ease right away and listened to everything we wanted while also advising us from his wealth of experience.

I’m not the most relaxed in front of a camera, but during our engagement shoot we relaxed  immediately and had so much fun! The photographs were fantastic and really captured our chemistry as a couple. We were able to use the photographs for our wedding which made it even more special.”

During our big day, Damien worked incredibly hard capturing everything we had asked for and more! Our photographs arrived much quicker than we had initially expected and watching out showreel with some champagne and wedding cake brought back some wonderful memories – and some forgotten ones too!

We would highly recommend Damien!”

Sophie & Dom

“Honestly couldn’t believe how the photos came out for our special day… from the start Damien was amazing, he was very genuine when we first met, following onto our engagement photos he made us feel massively at ease (as we really aren’t photogenic at all) so that made it so much easier when it came to our big day! from the start to the end we couldn’t have wished for more, Damien really got “those moments” which we will cherish for a lifetime to really reflect back on the wedding day… couldn’t suggest or praise Damien enough! A MASSIVE thank you from both Soph and I!”

Alice & Chris

“We were really impressed by the pictures Damien managed to shoot, which really captured the atmosphere of the day, with very little guidance from us. The colours in the whole album are incredible! We shared the album with our friends and family and who are really happy to get some nice pictures of themselves as well as us. We’re especially grateful for the pictures of our ceilidh, where Damien managed to get amazing action shots in the chaos, despite the risks of being trampled… Thanks again for everything, we couldn’t be happier with our wedding pictures. “

Thanks again, Damien, and all the best!

Karolina & Michael

“Damien was one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding. His photographs were wonderful and really captured the atmosphere of the wedding. Looking at them was like reliving the day. He was perfect on the day, kind, perceptive and his presence unobtrusive. We couldn’t recommend him enough. 

Thank you Damien!

Nish & Marcus

“Thank you very much indeed for all your hard work both days of the wedding.  I think you did a great job – you captured the essence of the wedding perfectly, snapped all the right people, and lots of happy moments!

We posted some printed photos in thank you cards to the guests, and I think every one of them that we’ve touched base with since has given the photos high praise!

Thanks again”.

Sam & Piers

“After Meeting with Damien one evening both myself and my bride to be, knew that we had found our photographer! Damien was just what we were looking for in a wedding photographer someone who would blend in and feel like one of the guests, capturing moments otherwise unseen. He also shared his love of shooting with prime lenses – something which I have in common with him, as I believe it makes the photographer move around the subject more and produces a better framed image. When done well the resulting images are amazing and let me tell you Damien shoots incredibly well. Our photos are stunning and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. My wife felt very comfortable with Damien during the pre-ceremony portions of our day and I loved being whisked away for a few photos of just the two of us. It’s not something we are used to doing, but our pre-wedding shoot with Damien and his cheerful friendly nature allowed us to just have fun, feel natural and the resulting photos are awesome! During the whole process Damien actively engaged with us to discuss the types of photos we would like to get, both listening to our ideas and providing inspiration when we riding know what to do. He was punctual and all images were delivered within a few weeks of our wedding. A truly brilliant photographer!”

Tracy & Mark

“Well what can we say about Damien’s work, he is amazing, thoughtful and manages to capture all the shots that you hold in your head as memories but captured on film. We generally hate having our photos taken and generally can’t agree on good pictures of ourselves that we both like. But from our engagement shoot and all the wedding photos we like them ALL. This is purely down to how skilled Damien is as a photographer and his ability to capture the mood and vibe of the day through photographs. majority of the time we didn’t even realise he had captured a moment until we saw the pictures. He has captured every element of the day perfectly and everyone who has seen our pictures who were not at the wedding, says what a lovely vibe they get from them. We have had comments from people who were at the day who said “perfectly captured a perfect day”. You don’t need a video if you are using Damien as he gives you everything you will ever want and need. If you want a photographer to capture your day so you can still feel and touch your day he is the man to book. Thank you Damien.” Tracy and Mark Bain

Anna & Martin

“We met Damien for a coffee and informal chat about 4 months before the wedding to discuss what we were looking for from our photos, having been drawn to his natural style from the pictures on his website.
We hadn’t planned on an engagement shoot, but Damien includes one in his package and it’s a very worthwhile venture, getting the chance to spend more time in each others’ company in order to feel more relaxed in front of the camera. We absolutely loved our photos, despite the challenging light of a cinema setting so we already knew we had chosen well by this point!

On our May bank holiday wedding day, we suspected we’d be up against the weather, and we had clouds, spitting, a torrential downpour and sunshine – 4 seasons in a day! Damien was completely on the ball throughout the day, paying close attention to conditions and changing light.

Many people who have seen our photos have commented on how lovely the weather must have been, which is not the case at all! We were just lucky to have a very dedicated and skilled photographer with an excellent eye. For someone who is very self-critical I am not the easiest to please, and I am genuinely thrilled with our wedding photos.

As well as a beautiful set of atmospheric, romantic, couple shots outside in the evening sun, there are the most incredibly well-captured candid shots of friends and family that we could ever imagine. Damien was everywhere all day, and yet we barely saw him! He appeared periodically to drag us out into the right lighting, but each time was very efficient and we didn’t feel that we were ever gone for long. He is very experienced, aware and he listened to what we wanted. He was very patient with us and we couldn’t recommend him enough. Having looked at different photographers, Damien is very good value for money and was effortless to work with. Thank you so much for the wonderful representation of the day!”

“We were very happy to have Damien on hand to photograph our wedding day. In the lead-up he was readily on hand to answer any questions and we felt confident the photography would run smoothly after chatting and emailing with him extensively. The day itself brought gorgeous English summer weather, which made for a very hot work environment, but Damien and Phil still worked tirelessly to capture all the big and small moments. We were glad to have Damien on hand for the ceremony and all the events of the evening, as he got some fantastic shots from the ceilidh and disco (not to mention those of the reception and ceremony itself). We are really pleased with how he managed to capture the spirit of the day, both in the shots of us as a couple and of our guests having a good time. Finally, the photos of our venues were really stunning as well. All in all the pictures serve as a fantastic reminder of a very special day and we are so thankful to Damien for capturing everything”.

Wedding in Long Melford Suffolk - Damien Vickers Photography

Karen & Dan

“I have just have viewed our wedding images for the first time. WOW! – they are absolutely beautiful!

Many thanks once again; you are an amazing photographer and a lovely person; we hardly noticed that you were there, which in my book is a sign of a great photographer! 
Serious question – do you do classes for amateurs at all, or can you recommend someone that does, as I am seriously looking into getting myself a fDSLR camera and would love lessons from someone who knows what they’re doing? When I was at college we did it all in the old fashioned way so I have no idea how to use a fancy DSLR! :)”

“Our wedding day at the Hotel Felix was wonderful, very relaxed and happy – and one important part of this was because Damien himself was so relaxed. We were able to chat and mingle happily with our guests while photos were taken unobtrusively so that no one felt self-conscious or hassled. We had a mixture of more formal and reportage style shots, which reflected the ambience of the day. Damien was also very flexible regarding the package we chose and took into account our own wishes at every stage. We would thoroughly recommend Damien Vickers photography, and have a lovely selection of beautiful photos to remind us of our special day”.

“Wow! We were absolutely thrilled with the photos that Damien took of us for our maternity shoot. It has been incredible to receive some photos that capture some tender moments between us in the last week before baby was born. The shoot was very relaxed and we were able to enjoy the whole experience, even more so the end product that has captured that real pregnancy glow that I felt. I keep going back to Damien’s photos to look at them again and again. Great to be able treasure that pregnancy feel that Damien has captured – especially as I know I this will be the last time I am ever pregnant (although we will certainly use Damien as a photographer again). Thanks damien for a truly worthwhile and positive experience”.

“We have been working with Damien for about two years on various projects, everything from new team photos, to reportage shots at our events and shots of our venues.  Damien is extremely professional, he takes time to understand the brief, he’s very unobtrusive and we can always trust him to just get on with it! The images are returned back to us quickly and I can honestly say that we’ve been pleased with the results of every project that he’s worked on.  We’ve also recommended him to clients for their events and I know that they have all been very pleased too”.

“Damien spent the day with me at Caius photographing our function rooms and gardens. We had a huge amount to cover in the day but Damien was so efficient and swift that we achieved everything and more! I was so impressed by Damien’s attention to detail and pure creativity that it was a pleasure to spend the day watching him at work. I am delighted with the results and will definitely be working him again in the future.”
