Couple Shoot

It is always such a joy to capture two people in love.  I really like to capture the excitement of proposals and new engagements just as much as couples who want some special images of their travels together or their anniversary. I always focus on creating an experience that feels relaxed, like friends hanging out, so images that I capture are natural and authentic.

Most couples say to me that they are nervous ahead of having their photos taken and let’s be honest, it’s not an everyday thing to be out somewhere with a photographer with you. But, I work in a way that puts you at ease, we’ll chat, you’ll spend time talking about shared memories and plans for the future and that is where the good stuff happens, the giggles, the knowing smiles and the natural moments, and that’s what I love to capture.

It’s also this that makes our time together more of a wonderful experience, that is about more than just photographs being taken. Its about having some time together to press pause and reflect on your lives together, as well as having some beautiful photographs to take home too.

At Dave Waller Photography, I offer a range of couple photography options to suit your style and preferences. From candid shots to posed portraits, outdoor locations to indoor settings, I have something for everyone. Plus, with our extensive selection of venues in Bradford, Keighley, Huddersfield, and more, you’re sure to find the perfect spot for your photoshoot.

What time of day is best?

I love to shoot in the couple of hours ahead of sunset, as the light changes so rapidly that it can really help to add an extra dimension to your images. If we’re in a city, we can see the street lights come on, and the city starts to sparkle. I love the idea of shooting at sunrise too, such different light, and often areas are super quiet at this time of the day too.

Some venues I work with include Hazlewood Castle, Holmfirth Vineyard, Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel, and many more. These stunning locations offer various options, from grand and opulent settings to cosy and intimate spaces. Whether you’re looking for a romantic garden, a rustic barn, or a chic cityscape, we have the perfect venue for you.


What should we wear?

This is completely up to you, this is your shoot and the images you will have to look back on. Some couples decide to dress up for their shoot, others choose a more relaxed and casual look. Some couples would like to change outfits midway through the shoot. This is something I am more than happy with but it’s worth thinking through as depending on the location, the flow of the shoot and our mobility with additional bags can limit what we can do.
My goal is to make your photoshoot experience as easy and stress-free as possible, so you can relax and enjoy the moment.

What if the weather is bad?

Of course, weather can be unpredictable and because the British weather is what it is I’m also totally flexible.
I understand that bad weather can be a concern for outdoor photo shoots, but rest assured that I am prepared to handle any situation. I can also suggest scheduling your shoot with some flexibility to allow for potential rescheduling due to inclement weather. I will work with you to find the best date and time for your photo shoot that suits your preferences and availability. 
If you also need to alter dates due to illness, that’s fine, I’m happy to re-arrange.

What happens after the shoot?

  • I hand pick just a few previews for you to see some of the beautiful moments we have experienced together and get excited about the whole collection and these are shared on my social media.
  • One of the things I pride myself on is speed of service and your whole collection is edited within 7-10 working days and is shared via your online gallery that you can download images from.
  • Images are delivered in high resolution, and you have a licence to print, share and upload your images.
  • You can also by professional prints and products direct from me but there is absolutely no obligation to.
