About Lee Daniels
Born in Peterborough, I now live in the wonderful county of Rutland with my beautiful wife Grace, our gorgeous daughter Ada and our perfect golden retriever Winnie. I’m slightly outnumbered with three ladies in my life, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
In my early years nature photography was a pathway to express myself and be creative. Every spare moment I had I’d be immersed in wildlife. I travelled all over the UK and overseas mesmerised by our beautiful planet and the animals that inhibit it.
By chance, this paved the way for me to start photographing people. Something that was once quite daunting is now very enjoyable. My relaxed, patient approach soon saw me become established in the wedding industry.
I look to fit into your day, mingling with guests and joking with the bridal party; I feel this benefits the outcome of your images, comfortable people = relaxed people = great natural photos.
Creating compositions that combine the landscape and the couple is something that personally drives me; but I never forget about those intimate, personal moments that define you and your wedding. So you can be assured you’ll receive a compelling variety of images that reflect your day as you remember it.
Chasing the light at sunset gets me really excited, I’d always recommended getting out at this time of day, as well as getting some beautiful images, it gives you the chance to have some alone time with one another and let the events of the day sink in.
Let’s not forget about the after party; the best part about staying late into the evening is the dance floor action, it’s great to have a sing and dance whilst shooting at the same time. Then before I leave I aim to capture at least one unique after dark image, it’s always worth five minutes of your time, even if you are stumbling around a little, the results can be amazing.
I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know a little bit about me, if you would like to meet up and talk in more detail about your wedding day plans please use the contact me link here
