About Photography by Dave Thompson
I am a professional photographer with 20 years experience. I worked for the Press Association for 7 years as a staff photographer from 2007-2014 and in the years either side of that I have been self employed. During my time with PA I covered major news events such as high profile court cases, the visit of President Obama to London and The Royal Wedding of Kate & William at Westminster Abbey. I also covered the London 2012 Olympics and various Premier League and European football matches. I shoot in an editorial way, without to much posed up content and am considered friendly, fun and professional.

If I could give Dave 10 stars I would as he is the best in the business!
From arriving at our wedding he made everyone feel at ease and all our guests commented on how lovely and friendly he was
We are delighted with our taster pictures and can’t wait to see the rest!
A true professional and highly recommend Dave for any occasion x

We cannot thank Dave enough. We didn't want any fuss at our wedding, just a few unposed pictures which look brilliant. Dave was so kind, helpful and professional throughout and I would highly recommend him.

Not sure where to start with summing up how bloomin' brilliant Dave was as our wedding photographer! From the very first meeting with him he shared in our excitement about the day and made some brilliant suggestions for photos that we hadn't even considered, but now that we've got them are so grateful for. He obviously really took on board what we thought we wanted (though we didn't really know and certainly didn't articulate it well!) and gave it real consideration because the photos we've ended up with are more lovely than we even hoped for.
We were far more interested in a documentary style, which is why we chose Dave, and would have done maybe one or two posed groups and shots but Dave's recommendation was to do just a few more because we would find that we and extended family would want them after all, but not do too many to bother us, and we're so glad we've got the mix of the two. And they're all beautiful. How he's managed to sum up how we felt on and about our wedding day in stills pictures is beyond me - he managed to capture in photographs the emotion and personality we wanted to bring to the day. And captured some natural moments that we'll treasure forever and will now be able to properly remember forever because he got exactly the right picture at exactly the right time - and often without us knowing he was even there. He's a photography ninja! He's also really adaptable, we ended up unexpectedly walking from our ceremony venue through the centre of Lincoln to the cathedral because our bus couldn't get to us, all with Dave running in front of us and snapping away! Made for some really beautiful, natural photos.
Not only is he an amazing photographer but he's also an absolutely lovely bloke and we think that part of the reason we were able to get such natural photographs is because he puts you instantly at ease, is a great laugh, not demanding in any way but will tell you exactly what he needs you to do, and considers precisely what you want. He spent time with Adrian and the groomsmen before the ceremony and Adrian said it was like having 'another one of the boys' along with them. Perfect for a nervous groom! And he was so polite to all our family and friends - so many have commented on how lovely our photographer was!
You're a top bloke Dave and we're so grateful for your help, your suggestions, and for capturing exactly what we wanted on our wedding day.

David was our wedding photographer and we were delighted with the results. From the pre-wedding meeting, throughout the wedding, and on to the post-production, David was helpful, friendly and professional.
We had a mixture of traditional and creative shots, and our photo collection truly reflects our big day, capturing the whole atmosphere as well as individual moments.
I have already recommended him to my sister!

Paul & Sarah. The Lake District.

We were really chuffed with our wedding pictures. Dave was really organised and was really easy to work with and fun on the day itself. He did all the pictures we had discussed beforehand and came up with some great ideas on the day as well. My whole family commented on what a fantastic job he did.
Dave got the photographs over to us within a week which was amazing and we’ve been left with a wonderful set of photographs to help us mark our special day. We would definitely recommend him to anyone planning their wedding.

We had the pleasure of using Photography by Dave Thompson for our wedding day. We cannot express highly enough how pleased we were with the photographs, album and professionalism shown by Dave.
Everybody comments how great our pictures are and we even asked Dave to cover our daughters christening too. I think that speaks for itself! Would definitely recommend. Thanks again Dave!
