Hi, I’m Diven Laxman, a wedding photographer based in Derby, and I’ve been shooting weddings now for 17 years, travelling all over the UK and Europe. I still find the process of being invited into a close family environment for a day a wonderfully surreal experience, but one that I never take for granted. I don’t feel, and never have, that I have a “style” as such, more just an approach to documenting a day that truly reflects my couples, their guests and the surroundings they find themselves celebrating in. I pride my work and approach to photographing a wedding as genuine and authentic, constantly trying to be creative with whatever situation is in front of me, completely embracing the craziness of the day, and producing a body of work that allows my clients and guests to feel as though they’re re-living the whole experience.
|Photography Event Type|
I'm a professional wedding photographer based in the West Midlands with over 12 years of Experience in film industry, specializing in Asian, English, and African wedding photography. I am available to cover all types of occasions all over the UK. I genuinely care about every couple and the intention behind each wedding is unwavering: create a unique wedding story the couple will fall totally in love with. There is no set routine to follow or set poses, and every wedding ceremony is entirely unique, just how it should be.
How would you describe your style?
People describe it to be either documentary, candid or reportage but basically I see it as "storytelling". I want to tell the whole story of your day and I believe even the smallest of moments need to be captured. I love to get the laughter, the tears and smiles all naturally. We step it up a gear for the portraits and together we can create some epic pictures.
What do you love about weddings?
Being part of of the happiest day of a couples life every single weekend is truly amazing and can't be beaten. I love building friendships with my couples too and having fun on the day. Finally, I love delivering the images and knowing they can relive the day over and over again.
What advice would you give to couples looking for their perfect wedding photographer?
Look for a photographer that you get on with and feel comfortable with. As photographers, we spend a lot of time with you on your wedding day so make sure you click with them. I love to meet all my couples before the big day over a coffee and get to know each other and chat about wedding. Im happy to meet before booking if it helps you make up your mind. If we can't do it in personal for some reason, let's get of FaceTime on.
