"Dan was amazing – I found him through Instagram and decided he was the photographer for us based on his photos and unique style. But Dan was a lot more than a brilliant photographer; he responded quickly every time we had a question, was super professional, but was also seriously relaxed and funny, knowing how to get the best reactions from us to make a shot look just right, and making the day a lot of fun. Honestly, the best part of our day was getting the photos done – we had time together on the most important day of our lives, and got to laugh a lot and actually enjoy it. Once the shoot was over, he got us previews and final images quickly and they looked phenomenal. He is so enthusiastic and goes the extra mile for his clients – he even fought thorns and a snake for us! Just book him to capture your big day because you could never regret it. Thanks Dan!"

"Dan is a sensational guy with incredible talent. He captures more than just images, he captures feelings, and when I first looked at his photos, I was overwhelmed by the emotion that is evident in every image and even more impressed when I now look at my own photos.

Dan made being photographed easy and exceeded all of our expectations, we are so happy we chose Dan Cartwright.

If you are considering Dan, do what we did. Look through his photos, if those images put a lump in your throat and a smile on your face, book him. You will not regret it!

Thank you, Dan, from the bottom of our hearts."

"On the day, Dan was epic. He has a personality; he is funny, cracks awesome Dad Jokes and makes the whole experience honestly AMAZING and so enjoyable... as your day should be! He's not a 'ok, stand here, put your arms here, smile' kinda guy. We got some truly incredible pictures taken purely as a result of Dan's humour and personality; photos I don't think could ever be achieved without him."

"I chose Dan based on recommendations (obviously) but also because Jonathon liked that he got fantastic shots at my sisters wedding. It’s important to have a great photographer as the photos are your true memory of the day. I love how happy we look in the photos, and I was super happy on the day. The whole thing goes past so quickly. Dan was the right photographer and will help us remember our day!"

REBECCA + TALOR

"We feel so lucky to have chosen Dan as our wedding photographer. He is insanely talented and we are so thrilled with all of our photos! In between all the jokes, laughter and chasing the sunset, Dan skillfully captured every moment from our day. The man really is a ninja with his camera. He also maintained great communication leading up to and after the wedding, and we received all 800+ photos less than 3 weeks after our day!

It goes without saying that we recommend Dan 100%.

Thank you so much, we will cherish these photos for a lifetime.
Bec and Talor."

Having not spent a lot of time in front of a camera before, Dan had us laughing and feeling relaxed with his creative bag of tricks, which made for a really enjoyable experience.

I would highly recommend his services!"
