Couple Testimonials

Deborah & Noah

“We found Damien through a wedding website online and decided to choose him as our wedding day photographer. It was the best choice for sure. He was very friendly throughout the day, very agile and didn’t miss a single detail. When we got the pictures and the slideshow after two weeks we were so surprised with the quality of the photos. They were simply beautiful and both me and my husband Noah loved them so much. I couldn’t recommend Damien more! Thanks again for making our day memorable! Débora and Noah.”

Gillian & Dan

“Damien’s photographs of our wedding are fantastic and beautifully capture the atmosphere of our wedding day as well as the features of our unique venue in Tuscany. He was so easy to get along with and was super efficient at getting great shots, such that we were able to get on and enjoy our wedding day with our guests, without feeling like we’d spent hours having photos done. We’d highly recommend Damien!”

Camilla & Andrew

“Damien is worth every penny and we would highly recommend him for anyone’s wedding. He is a friendly, personable, and professional photographer who strived to capture the most precious moments of our special day. He is truly talented and is clearly passionate about his work. All of our friends and family have commented on the natural and intimate quality of our photos. Damien has been able to tell a story of the day through his photo selection and slideshow. We believe that his ability to encapsulate everyone’s emotions is what makes him unique as a wedding photographer. Damien provided a high standard of service from his first to final contact with us. He has given us the greatest gift possible by providing us with memories to treasure for the rest of our lives. We are forever grateful to him. Thank you Damien”.

Elspeth & Martin

“Damien was our photographer of choice for our wedding in April 2019. We were attracted to vibrant colourful pictures in his portfolio.
He definitely didn’t disappoint. Neither my husband nor I are a fan of pictures, so we didn’t want to spend all day taking posed photos, Damien accommodated this perfectly. Instead his photos were mostly all candid of us our guests.
In particular we loved that Damien stayed well into the evening and took many pictures of us and our guests on the dance floor. The photos were so vibrant and really captured the energy in the room
Thank you, Damien, for our perfect Wedding Photos.”

Lauran & Tom

“Damien was excellent at our wedding! He was everywhere at once, got plenty of natural photos of everyone enjoying themselves.
For 2 people that dont do well infront of cameras Damien made us feel very comfortable. Super happy with the photos , did everything we asked for and couldn’t fault anything.
Very quick turnaround with receiving the photos so no waiting for ages which was amazing.
Kind and very pleasant to be around!
Thank you Damien :)”

Beth & Jez

“Myself and “The Hub” (as he is now known) had a clear idea in our minds about the style of photography we were after, but also the personality of the photographer was a big factor. We had met a couple of photographers previously but Damien immediately made us feel at ease and was far more organised and forthcoming than the others we had met.

Our wedding party only equated to 30 people and so we were keen to get someone who could organise some big personalities but also who would get along with our friends and family. Damien was the perfect guy. He is chatty and easy to get along with and everyone at the wedding loved him.

He made sure we got the shots we wanted without taking up a lot of our time, and directed our rowdy rabble with the greatest of ease. He blended into the background when he needed to to get some epic portraits, but also helped to organise the day and the people and was actually a huge help on the day! The pics of just the two of us were a lot of fun to do and Damien was there to help us relax in front of the camera, he instantly read that we wanted them to be fun and a bit quirky and he directed us perfectly to capture some great moments between the two of us.

To say I am thrilled with the end result is an understatement, the photos are full of life, fun, colour and he captured the mood of the day and the personality of our friends and family perfectly. I usually hate photos of myself but I am totally blown away with the shots he took. He managed to snap more than just the people – he documented the character of the building we were in and the environment and ambience of the day overall. The hardest part is choosing which ones to print out!

If ever I am in need of a photographer for any future events I’ll book Damien in a heartbeat. You won’t regret doing the same!”

Melissa & Stephen

“Damien came to our rescue when we found out the photographer we already booked a year before our wedding went bankrupt we were really stressed and upset about finding another one with only 7 months to go before our wedding. Then we found Damien on facebook he recently done a wedding of someone I went to school with when we contacted Damien he was really nice and understanding and was sympatric to what had happened to us he sent us across his package deals and his pictures and we were amazed at the work he done we booked him straight away, we met him closer to the wedding to go over what pictures are most important to us and just to get to know a little bit more about each other, so when it came to our wedding day we wernt all complete strangers which was nice because we felt more relaxed. The wedding day went really smoothly none of the pictures were forced it was all really natural and he just captured everyones laughter and the enjoyment of the day everyone loved him and he made everyone laugh when it came to the group photos. Our photos came back within a few weeks and they were absolutely amazing! weve had so many nice comments on the photos and he also made us a slide show of pictures to music which was incredible it made us relive the day again and brought tears to our eyes, we also received a presentation box with a few printed pictures and a USB with all the pictures on it. The quality of everything has been to a very high standard. We would highly recommend Damien he’s an amazing photographer and such a lovely person.”

Ellie & Andy

“Let me start by saying that Damien was the absolute dream photographer for my wedding this year. For two people who aren’t particularly happy in front of a camera, he made us feel comfortable in his presence from the very first phonecall consultation. From there he invited us to have a pre-wedding shoot which gave us a taster of the experience we would have on the day and allowed us to experiment with poses to see what suited us and what didn’t. We had ongoing communication with Damien from start to finish to make sure that we would have all of the shots we wanted on the day (grooms first sight of the bride, the dress, the getting ready shots etc as well as the family group shots which our parents wanted). Damien blended seamlessly into the day, with many of my guests left wondering how he got such great shots as they rarely saw him! Damien worked incredibly hard to be in the right place at the right time and was continually conscious of aspects like angles and sunsets to give us photos we could have only dreamt of. This was all the more incredible because he had never been to our venue before. When we received our pictures we were elated. He captured the day so well and the emotion in each shot was stunning. From proud mothers looking at us, to giggling bridesmaids to partying friends; it was all perfect. The colours were vibrant, the shots were clear and (dare we say it) we looked great!!! You would never have guessed we were the awkward and camera shy people from before. Since then, I have been asked several times for Damien’s contact by my guests as they were so impressed. This man is excellent. Highly recommended”

Lindsay & Ez

“Damien was an amazing wedding photographer! He was patient and up for whatever we wanted, including taking some photos at our legal ceremony a month before the wedding instead of an engagement shoot. I’m glad we found him and very happy with the photos!”

Emma & Josh

“We’d been together for 7 years when my now husband asked me to marry him. Instead of a long engagement we opted to do it all in 7 months, having booked our venue less than a week after the proposal. When it came to choosing a photographer (a couple of days later, haha) we were immediately drawn to Damien’s style, the vibrancy, colours and his frequent use of glowing sunsets. He made it easy really. From the get go Damien kept in touch and listened to exactly what we wanted from our photos. He worked tirelessly throughout our day catching the most wonderful moments. From the start of the day where he spent the early morning wandering around the grounds of our venue finding the best spots all the way through to the late evening when the party was in full swing. We will treasure our photos forever. Thank you Damien.”

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!”

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!”

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

“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! :)”

Susie & Andy

“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”.

Eve Stuart, conference manager at Gonville & Caius College Cambridge.

“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.”
