Get to know me.

Dan Cartwright

I spend most of my time socialising with my mates and spending quality time with my beautiful family, enjoying life to the fullest. I'm definitely someone you can be yourself around as I embrace that with all my couples.

I bring a romantic and heart filled cinematic style to my work. I aim to capture images that will never be forgotten in time and forever immortalised in a story that you can share with you and your loved ones.

Finally, I'll be extremely humbled to photograph your wedding!

I find it hard to write about myself. It is so hard to sum up who I am in words but I’ll give it a go.

My photography background stems from my years of experience in film making. I am a natural born storyteller and I am magnetised to the craft of image making. It has led me into a photography career that has taken me far and wide and I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. Personality wise, I guess you could say I am a bit of a joker too, seeing the positive side in everything and having a laugh with the people around me. Joy brings smiles, smiles means happiness.

Capturing couples in love.



I strive for the "human connection"

My promise is to give you the best!

You've probably heard this time and time again, from hunting the interwebs trying to find the "right" photographer. Honestly, I live by my word. IF I don't do my best, I will lose complete job satisfaction.

So it's a no brainer... You'll see me dodge snakes, hurdle fences, tip toe slowly through a quiet crowd and even get saturated in torrential down pours to give you the best images. All of those statements are true and based off personal experiences with all of my couples.

Hear me out... I've been told many times that I'm like a friend on a wedding day. I think that's super important. It allows me to get in close with you guys and honestly capture the real you; the quirks, the laughters and tears. If I were treated like a stranger, you wouldn't get images anywhere as good from me.

Before all that, a few of my couples state that they don't like getting their photo taken. Well, I'll say it here... After one of my sessions, every one of them say it was so easy and some say it was therapeutic!

Behind the scenes.

Here's a look at part of what I do on a wedding day. The whole idea is to have fun and enjoy every minute of it. This video was shot by my pal Luke Middlemiss for a wedding I photographed in Venice.
