I’m Dayne Smith...
a documentary style photographer based in Hampshire, but I love travelling all over the UK, and abroad…especially if it’s a warm country, I'm in!
As the son of a professional photographer I have spend most of my life behind a camera, I love it. Being able to take pictures for a living is one of the most fulfilling roles I could think of, there’s something so special about capturing a moment that is there for just a millisecond and being able to tell your story through these beautifully captured moments in time. It's a passion I love and one I believe the fruit of which, you will enjoy for years and years to come.
I’m creative, imaginative and throw myself head first into every photo shoot, whether I’m photographing someone’s wedding day, engagement, family or event. I do my best to tell the genuine and heartfelt story of the day. Ensuring that all my customers get a final product that is exquisite and authentic.
"Say cheese" no more...
No matter how big or small the wedding, you can trust that I will be there to discreetly capture all the special moments without imposed directions and interruptions for orchestrated poses. I will ensure you remain at the center of your wedding day, while also capturing guests, family and friends as they enjoy the day you have so carefully planned.
I’m married to my beautiful wife, Dara and all I can say is - marriage is the best. While I am introducing her I will also let you in on a little secret, she's also a pretty good at photographer! Not just a pretty face I hear you think! Dara and I share our passion for photography and have done for a few years, which is why we started this business together marrying up our interest and careers. So if you request for a second shooter you know who that will be!
Meet for coffee?
The relationship I have with customers and couples is something I value hugely, I try to build an experience that is warm and genuine, I would love to get to know you a bit better and find out in a bit more detail as to what are your hopes are for your day!

What a privilege it was to have had Dayne shoot our engagement. We felt such an effortless ease to be ourselves and bask in the moment while he snapped away. His professionalism, beautiful use of lighting, creativity and ability to capture moments make the most breath taking photo's that transport you back to the very moments they were captured. I'd choose Dayne again any day!

We are so happy with the engagement photo shoot we had with Dayne. He captured the moment beautifully. He was professional and non-intrusive, and so we received the natural photos of the day that we wanted. We would definitely recommend him.

I am so glad we had Dayne taking our engagement pictures! Normally I feel a little bit awkward "posing" for pictures. But this time I felt super comfortable and had actually a lot of fun. Even my fiance, who's smile normally ALWAYS looks a little bit cramped on pictures, looks relaxed on these ones. The whole experience was extremely uncomplicated and easy and our pictures are stunning! Dayne brought in beautiful ideas (maybe even all of them) and I am extremely happy and can only recommend to book him! Thank you!
