About Dave Fuller Photography

Hello! Want to know more about who we are? Don’t blame you, after all you’re potentially spending one of the biggest days of your life with us!

We are a documentary wedding photography duo from Nottingham, based in Kimberley to be exact – famous for coal mining and hosiery, apparently. Dave, as per our namesake, is the main photographer who takes phenomenal wedding photos. Amy is Dave’s wife and the skilled second photography. By day, Amy is Dr Fuller – a researcher. Having a natural talent for capturing strong images (and now fully trained in the ‘Dave Fuller’ photography technique), Amy is also available to take images of your wedding, ensuring you get complete coverage of your day.   

To find out what we are like, you’ll find lots of juicy snippets below. If you have any more questions, get in touch here.


I’m a total tea-head. In fact, I’m turning into a bit of a tea geek. My current favourites are by Bird & Blend. Tea also goes wonderfully well with cake.

Before my wedding photographer days, I was a primary school teacher. This is where I honed my child conversation skills, super handy for shooting kid-friendly weddings and family photos.

I love surfing and paddle boarding, any day Cornwall is my perfect day.

I make a mean Sunday roast.

My must-see Christmas film is Die Hard (yes, it is a Christmas film.)


Having been fully trained in the Dave Fuller Photography technique, I am loving being a part of Dave’s wedding photography. I particularly enjoy meeting so many different couples and seeing them in their element on their wedding day.

I love being on (and in) the water. Be it lake, river or sea, water is my happy place. Locally, my favourite spot is Colwick Park for messing around on my paddle board. (Check out my pal SUP Yoga and Fitness UK & join us!)

My perfect day is spending a day out on the water with great friends before curling up in front of Gogglebox.

I love a good garden centre and will easily spend far too much money on plants. Oops!

My must-see Christmas film is Elf (I have never seen Die Hard so I couldn’t possibly comment on whether it’s a Christmas film or not).

My love of wedding photography stems from crafting our own wedding celebration in 2015. Frustrated with wedding customs (coordinating chair covers, really?) we pursued our own path.

Having our legal ceremony the day before meant we could really have fun with our celebration. We threw an awesome party with garden games, live swing band and open bar. Lots of elements were personalised and hand-made by our friends and family (clever sticks) making it even more memorable and meaningful.

That’s when I thought, I like doing things differently and that every couple should have the option to choose what they want on their special-ist of days – especially when it comes to their wedding photography.

I set out to shoot weddings in a relaxed, un orchestrated way that fitted and flowed with my couples. Less ‘can you just do that thing you did again?’ and more ‘now THIS is a magical shot’. I’m pleased to say I’ve been shooting weddings across Nottinghamshire and beyond ever since.        
In a nutshell, I love what I do. I get to spend the day surrounded by lovely, loved-up people having the party of their lives. It’s a privilege – not to mention a brilliant buzz – to be part of that.

My photography style is rooted in documentary, which has lots of other fancy terms like ‘reportage’ and ‘photojournalistic’. It means I work in the moment, capturing all the special, silly and spontaneous things as they happen.

I operate with minimal equipment (often just my camera, a Nikon D750) and as far as possible, natural light. This allows me to weave in and out, capturing all the wonderful bits.

The results are real-life, relaxed images full of feeling.   

I’m friendly and easy going. Rather than take over, I blend in, mingling, chatting and having fun with your guests. As well as putting people at ease, my ‘softly, softly’ approach means I’m able to slip unnoticed into the heart of the action.

Also, I love cake.

Hey, I understand everyone is different, and while some couples love the camera others visibly stiffen and die a little inside. Absolutely don’t worry, my world-class ability to blend in means you and your guests rarely (and I mean rarely) even know I’m there.

If I’m shooting just you (say post-ceremony or engagement shoot) I’ll work with you to get the best shots. Plus, I’ve lots of effective, non-cheesy techniques for helping you relax and take amazing pictures.           

I’ve been capturing weddings across Nottinghamshire and the rest of East Midlands for over five years. It’s a gem of a county brimming with picture-perfect venues, from characterful country houses and barns to miles of rolling green fields – just add a handful of tipis for a rustic shindig.

I shoot weddings across East Midlands, including Nottingham and Derby but also happily travel further afield to Sheffield, Birmingham and the Peak District.

I also shoot weddings as far as Cornwall, and if you’re heading to Hawaii, I’ll happily follow you there!

If your wedding is a good way away from home (60 miles+) I may ask you to cover travel expenses and accommodation (so I’m fresh-as-a-daisy).  

Amy and I are pretty outdoorsy. Our passions are surfing and stand-up paddle boarding. In fact, we love the outdoors so much that we’ve taken the step of making our photography business greener by offsetting any pesky carbon dioxide emissions we make by planting trees. We currently plant 12 a month and if you book a wedding, we’ll plant even more in your name.

I love working with couples set on creating unique, slightly alternative weddings that truly represent who they are. The ones who do things not because other people expect it but because they love it.

I could go on but it would be much more fun to chat in person over tea and cake right?
