Being a wedding photographer is a job not for the faint hearted – remaining calm and composed, capturing every element of a wedding without really being seen and making a couple feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. Well, it’s a good job we work with people who are true professionals like Dan Hughes. Here, we find out a little more about the man behind the camera.

Dan, how long have you been photographing weddings for and what do you love most about your job?

I shot my first wedding way back in 2008 which is crazy when I think about it. My job is incredible, being able to capture people’s day is truly amazing and such an honour. Every wedding is different and seeing friends and family come together is a wonderful part of what I do.

Tell us a little bit about Gemma & Adam’s wedding

It was so much fun, you could tell that they’d really put a lot of thought and effort into making sure everyone was looked after. It was a great day for everyone involved and that showed in how much fun people had. The food, the venue and their staff, the surroundings and that Helter Skelter. It was absolutely incredible and to top it off Gemma & Adam were just the most gracious of hosts. A genuinely lovely wedding to be a part of.

Is this your favourite kind of wedding to shoot – relaxed and informal?

Absolutely, it’s how I approach weddings, so they more often than not reflect that and it’s great. I personally believe it makes for better photographs and better weddings.

Do you feel like you really get to know a couple when you shoot their wedding?

Yeah absolutely, I think it’s hard not to, you do end up spending a lot of time in their company, helping them out and being on hand. There is a balance between being present and not interfering, I work hard at trying to make sure that it’s not about me whilst also giving the couple the best photos I can.

If you weren’t a wedding photographer, what do you think you’d be doing?

Wow, that’s a good one! I do a little bit of commercial work and photography training but if that wasn’t my full-time job either then it would probably be something practical that would allow me to be outdoors. I am not too bad at DIY and I love to build things.
