Stunning Portraits, Real Natural Moments from a award winning West Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Let me guess .. you are here because you are looking for your West Yorkshire Wedding Photographer (or because I forced you to have a look)

Hi, I’m Dave from Dave Waller Photography. I’m a multi-award-winning West Yorkshire Wedding Photographer. I am based between Wakefield, Leeds and Huddersfield West Yorkshire (but cover all of the UK), and specialise in wedding photography. I offer a high quality, professional photography service documenting your wedding day with photography that reflects who you are as a couple. I want to tell the story of your day as it happens, all the little details, all the laughs and smiles.

I would describe my style of wedding photography as a mix of natural documentary photography and stunning portraits.  Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event, naturally, you will want stunning photographs to look back on.  With Dave Waller Photography, my wedding photography packages include a stunning Exclusive Wedding Photography Photo Album, meaning you can look back on your wedding day over and over again. 

“Thank you so much for the photos, … we are extremely happy. You caught all the moments which we wanted, they look natural relaxed and not staged. The only problem we have got is deciding which to print for our album as they are all fantastic.”

We used Dave for our wedding on New Years Eve, he was very patient and accommodating! Nothing was too much or too little for him, just goes with the flow which made us feel very relaxed and not under pressure to have pictures taken at specific times.
Dave was very friendly and approachable, when guests asked him to take particular pictures he was always willing to do so.
Would highly recommend Dave to anyone out there looking for a photographer!
Thanks Dave,

Dave did our wedding on 14th July. We had him for a full day. I cannot explain how amazing our photos were. They were exactly what we wanted. Not staged and very natural of people laughing, talking, hugging and generally having a good time. Dave was very professional and not intrusive all through the day, all the guests liked him and all commented what an amazing job he was doing. We really could not have asked for a better photographer or set of photos. I cannot recommend him enough. The only issue we have is deciding which photos to print for our album.

Dave was our photographer for our wedding at Hazel Gap Barn on 17th February 2020. Right from the initial phone call to enquire about the packages he offers Dave couldn’t do enough to help. On the day he was friendly but professional and knew exactly where to get the best photos to keep couple shots time to a minimum. With our wedding being on a weekday in February we received our photos with a week and a half and they are simple gorgeous. I would highly recommend booking Dave for a wedding or any other event as he was just amazing!

Together we can tell the story of your wedding day.  We can catch those heartfelt moments and also create some stunning portraits to hang on your wall and display in your wedding photography album.  Quite simply, for me, documentary wedding photography is about telling your story. The story of your most special day from start to finish, not intrusive, just real moments from your day. People say that you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory and I truly believe that I help to preserve those memories by capturing each moment as it happens. Real moments become real memories.

I love to capture all the moments of your wedding day.  The second your dad sees you in your dress when your partner sees you walking down the aisle.  I love to capture all the emotions from your wedding day.  I love telling your stories and capturing those special moments.  

When it comes to photographs of you both together, I take just a very brief period away from the rest of the guests for some relaxed photography alone. I use this time to capture some creative shots of you both together. My approach is still very natural and relaxed, often a short walk in the grounds of your venue is enough.  Many of my couples tell me that they feel uncomfortable in front of the camera and hate having any photographs taken. After the wedding, the portraits are some of there favourite photographs from the day.  You put your heart and soul into planning your dream wedding day, make sure you choose a West Yorkshire wedding photographer you can trust to capture your special day.

A little more about me,

I’m a documentary wedding photographer based near Leeds in West Yorkshire and I truly love my job.  I love telling the story of your wedding day.  I think I am so fortunate to be able to share so many happy occasions.  I consider my self primarily a documentary wedding photographer but also like to capture some stunning portraits between the happy couple.  My aim is to blend into the wedding day without disturbing or staging the day, simply documenting what happens.

I honestly think I have found my perfect job as a West Yorkshire Wedding Photographer. I am so fortunate to be able to share and capture so many wonderful days.  Over the last couple of years, I have had the privilege to attend a number of weddings in the West Yorkshire area.  Please take a look at come of my recent weddings.

Weddings are great fun, they never fail to make me smile and laugh all day long,  I don’t order you and your guests about for endless group shots – I much prefer a natural and candid approach, no one appreciates having a big camera shoved in their face by a pushy photographer who gets in their way all day long. My aim is to capture all the moments and real emotions while you concentrate on enjoying your wedding day, the most important bit! I love couples who choose to have fun with their wedding over endless traditions and box-ticking. Letting your character shine through is the most important thing and it makes for awesome photographs: your wedding day is all about YOU. Have a good browse through my portfolio and my about page to get a feel for my style, sample weddings can be found over at the blog.

I’m already really looking forward to hearing from you, don’t be shy.

I want to photograph the deep belly laughs, quirky smirks, the in-betweens, and the perfectly imperfect.

Dave was our wedding photographer on the 5th of October - he also did our couple photoshoot before the day as well. We have had so much praise from all over the world for all our wedding photos - he really managed to capture the true emotion on the day. The photos are so us and incredibly natural. He managed to get my husband, James in some amazing shots and James hates getting his picture taken but Dave was so friendly and funny that he could relax and enjoy the day without feeling conscious! Dave did a phenomenal job and we definitely would recommend him to anyone getting married if we haven't already!

We booked Dave through a Facebook ad we saw about a year before our wedding and my goodness are we glad we did...
We told Dave that we wanted largely documentary type photos of moments being captured throughout the day plus a few intimate pictures of myself and Nick scattered with a few family shots and boy did he deliver.. I am in love with the style of our wedding photos, my husband is not a fan of photos but even he felt at ease and relaxed with Dave’s style!
The ABC game was a fantastic touch and looking back at the photos we hadn’t even noticed Dave was there for some of them which is just what we wanted!!
Anyone thinking of booking Dave for their wedding.. Go For It!! I promise you won’t regret it.. Thank You Dave for such a wonderful job.. I can’t stop looking at our photos and smiling !! Love from

Dave what can we say?!! From the bottom of our heart thank you for capturing the most beautiful moments from our wedding day.
With all the uncertainty with covid we still decided to go ahead as it was more about getting married to us and just had a very intimate ceremony with 9 guests.
Dave captured the most stunning pictures for us. Capturing every single precious moment that what will always be able to look back on. Dave was nothing but professional and in our eyes (and all of our guests) the best in what he does! There are not enough words to say how grateful we are. Thank you!! Here are just two of our favourite but it is impossible to choose as they are all amazing! Lots of love from Mr and Mrs Pearson.

We simply cannot recommend Dave enough! We have just received our wedding photographs and we are so so happy with them! They are exactly what we had hoped they’d be. Through out the day Dave made us feel at ease and so relaxed. Not intrusive in any way and has captured the real off guard moments. Looking through our photos I feel he’s captured the absolute whole of the day from morning to night, and he’s tuned in to the fine detail. I feel our photographs tell a real story. Not only is Dave an amazing talented photographer he is a genuinely nice guy. I’ve been to some weddings where the photographer is almost stroppy because of timings etc but Dave very much went with the flow but still captured everything! Highly recommend!!!!
