All About Dear White

Hi, I'm Daniel and I'll be recording all the little moments and memories of your big day, even the ones you might not have noticed or missed!


I first tried out photography during high school and life half the class, only really picked it cause I thought it was a cool thing to do and just wanted to be different from everyone else who picked social studies for easy points. :P  While shooting on film in the good old days, I fell in love with the idea of being able to capture and freeze a moment in time. Having the power to immortalise moments, I was drunk with power and quickly spiraled into blowing the budget on buying film canisters and film paper and spending waaaay too much time in the darkroom. That was 16 years ago (give or take depending whether I remember to updated this sentence next year) and I've been holding a camera ever since.

It was only 4 years ago that a friend of mine asked me to help photograph and video his wedding that I even considered doing it full time. I'd lost touch with it a little over the years but being able to capture the smiles and hugs, the small details like a groomsman looking totally confused as to what he should do or a botched speech that everyone laughs at, I feel in love with it all over again.

So I quit my job (thanks for being so supportive Jo! <--- She's the real boss ) and dived into the deep end. Tons of hardship, struggle, and 16 hour work days but I'm reminded that it's all worth it every time someone tells me they've cried or laughed and relived their day through what I've captured.

Feel free to look around! Would love to chat more if you like what you see!

Daniel and his team were incredible!

Dan spent time getting to know us and understand what we wanted for the wedding photography and videography, and they created something so much better! Their vision, skill, and friendliness have been amazing, and truly helped to make our day the best day ever.

We now have the perfect mementos to remember the day, we are so glad we chose Dear White Productions and have had so many friends and family enquire about the photographers because the work is so good!
