We are Dave, Diana and Lois, and together we are Golding Photography. We are passionate about our brand of wedding photography and we strive to provide you with beautiful photography, top notch service, and the best quality photography products. We are full time professional wedding photographers and this is how we make our living.
It’s not just about creating great wedding photographs, it’s also about providing you with the very highest level of service – right from when we first make contact with you, until after we deliver your wedding album. Our reputation depends on it!
Together, we have photographed over 300 weddings, and over the years we have developed a unique style that will provide you with both informal documentary images and well crafted and fun family and group shots. We will also create beautiful bride and groom portraits, captured at various times during the day.
On your wedding day we understand the day is about you and not about us! We don’t dominate your day or get in the way. We will always be polite to your guests and give them plenty of opportunity to get their own photos. As our full-day wedding photography packages include two photographers at no extra cost, this results in a greater variety of images for you.
When the wedding day is over we start work carefully editing, processing and quality checking your images before presenting them. This is a very important part of the process. Each image is individually optimised for colour, exposure, contrast, crop and image quality, and a selection of the images will be converted into black and white.
We are often asked what equipment we use. We all use Nikon professional DSLR cameras and lenses. Dave also likes to use Fuji-X mirrorless professional camera bodies and lenses. We use speedlights for subtle on camera flash and Elinchrom Quadra for dramatic off-camera flash, and sometimes video lighting for creating great atmosphere. We have the gear and knowledge to get you great images, as well as spare cameras in case of breakdowns. We are Nikon Professional Services (NPS) members.
We carry £1M public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance. A risk assessment and method statement can be provided for your venue if requested.
Most importantly of all, we love what we do. We love weddings and immerse ourselves in the emotion and flow of your day, and the emotion is reflected in our images.
We work really well together as a team, we love our jobs and it doesn’t feel like ‘work’. Our individual skills come together seamlessly to ensure you enjoy stress free wedding photography and receive a set of amazing images from your wedding day!
