Dave Cropper Photography

Dave photographed our wedding in at the Rock Hotel in Elland. He and his partner did a fantastic job on the day, organising everyone for some magical shots. And we were not disappointed with the results. Dave produced a stunning album and photos for the family and his use of digital tools to enhance what he had captured on the day was superb. We would highly recommend Dave's work to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Thank you Dave!

Our wedding at The Priests House  was captured perfectly by Dave Cropper Photography. We were more than happy with the photographs and feel that they have given us memories of the day that we can keep and treasure forever. Dave Cropper made us feel completely at ease and was very creative in the approach to the photographs and happy to do things we suggested. There are some stunning portrait photographs and so many that capture special moments that it was hard to choose. They took so many photographs and spend time talking to you and making you feel comfortable so that they can get relaxed looking shots. Extremely talented and creative nice photographers and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants a photographer who will put a lot of effort into making your day as special as possible and giving you the photographs you want. I couldn't be happier with the the service or the finished product. Beautiful photographs and DVD.

We would highly recommend Dave Cropper Photography. Our wedding was in March and Dave captured it perfectly. We couldn't of asked for anything more. He was professional throughout and came to us with his albums to show us his work beforehand. The storybooks are fantastic value and put together very well. On the day Dave arrived in plenty of time and had been to the venue previously to become familiar with the surroundings. He stayed into the evening and captured some fantastic natural shots. Dave has a natural creative side and everyone who has seen our album comments on the subtle background designs that bring the whole book to life. Some friends of ours have arranged for Dave to picture their wedding as they were impressed with what they had seen. Nothing was too much trouble. Our storybook was delivered promptly and we ordered some small books for family which were also delivered to us promptly by hand from Dave. He provides a personal and professional service, and we will be using him in future for any family occasions.

Well what can we say except a great big thank you to Dave. We wanted a special album that captured our wedding day and that is exactly what we got! Dave is friendly and listened to what we wanted. He put himself out to take some stunning photos at Cartwright Hall for us. The album is fantastic and captures our wedding story from beginning to end. We would recommend Dave. He is the best.  Thanks

Dave came to Comlongon Castle in Scotland to take our wedding pictures.They are absolutely amazing. I can not stop looking at our album. 
Everyone that has seen our wedding pictures has commented on how beautiful they are. I can not recommend Dave Cropper Photography highly enough. Thank you Dave for creating an album that has captured the day so perfect and creating a memory that we can keep forever.

My husband and I are absolutely thrilled beyond belief with our wedding photographs from Dave Cropper Photography. Dave and Michael spent from 1.30pm till well after 11 pm with us on the day itself. They were courteous, professional, helpful, genuine and completely there for James and I.
The photographs are everything we wanted and more. The album tells the story of our love, our devotion to one another and the love and happiness of our friends and family who shared our special day. Dave and Michael have given James and I a priceless memory of our wedding day, both on the day itself and now with the love and devotion portrayed in each and every photograph.
The only difficulty we had was in trying to choose 70 plus photographs from the amazing 1000 that were taken on the day.If you are planning your wedding day and you would like someone who listens to what you want, inspire you with ideas and complete professionalism, then look no further then Dave Cropper and his brother Michael. Ace!!!!!!!!!!!!

When we asked Dave to be our wedding photographer we asked him to take a number of posed photographs with all the necessary family groups, and then gave him free reign to photograph anybody doing anything - with the brief to get some reportage style/informal shots of the group and of us (mainly because neither of us feel comfortable in front of the camera). This meant that we weren't worried about having to pose for many photographs and made us much more relaxed. We thoroughly enjoyed our whole day, and when our album arrived we could see that Dave had produced a magical record that reflected the day from start to finish. The album contained some very discreet but beautiful editing which made our album completely bespoke. He used pictures of guests, invites and flower displays in the backgrounds and every time we look at the album we notice something else! Fantastic - we would wholeheartedly recommend Dave Cropper Photography for your wedding photographer.

I cannot recommend Dave highly enough. He took our wedding photographs for our ceremony at The Priest's House, Nr Skipton - his knowledge of the location made the experience that much better.
He sent us an abundance of photos from which to choose for our album and we wanted every single one. His artistic vision is simplistic yet stunning, and not at all pretentious. He wandered unobtrusively amongst the guests and took some fabulous candid shots; equally the formal shots were genuine and brought out the best in everybody. The album he produced was personalised, really well thought out, and nothing short of fantastic.
Dave is approachable, honest, very quick to communicate (a godsend when planning a wedding!) and excellent value for money. It felt like nothing was too much trouble on the day; he arrived before me and left only minutes before us! I would recommend Dave Cropper Photography without hesitation. Thanks, Dave, for giving us such beautiful photos to remember our day by!

Simply superb,Dave and Michael captured the spirit of the day perfectly and the album they have prepared for us will give us pleasure for ever.

Dave and Michael both provided us with a relaxed, fun, caring and thoughtful service. Although we had met them only briefly before the big day, they were so un-intrusive and friendly that we felt like they were guests. The finished product is fantastic, it was ideal for us; in order of the day, captured the joy, love and fun. The thought behind the layout and the additional personal touches are priceless. We would highly recommend them, no issues whatsoever!! Thanks - you guys were great  xx

Dave photographed our wedding at The Priests House on 1st September. His knowledge of the location and friendly professionalism resulted in fabulous photographs and a memorable photobook which captured the mood of the day brilliantly. We chose Dave Cropper Photography because of his artistic and imaginative presentation. He and his assistant stayed with us for the whole day and we don't know how he got some of the shots! Would highly recommend him.

Dave is a remarkable photographer, he took the photos for my sons wedding. Dave is a very friendly person who puts people at ease. He came before the wedding all through the ceremony and stayed well into the reception. He took some wonderful posed shots but the candid random shots were amazing. One in particular of the little bridesmaids from the back running away, they reminded me of the Cottingley fairies. The album is an inspiration as is the presentation of it, I will recommend Dave Cropper Photography to anyone looking for a good photographer for any occasion

Dave has become our preferred wedding day photographer for our restaurant. We have had excellent feedback from our customers on the quality of the photo's as well as his very amenable and almost invisible organisation.
He undertook a portrait session for our two teenage sons who were less than keen on the idea initially - he soon won them round and produced a great album.

He is also a dab hand at doing some of our creative website work - absolutely invaluable

Thanks Dave!

Dave Cropper Photography is definitely a taste of Yorkshire at it's best.Our wedding,miles away from home in your beautiful county,is now a lasting treasure of memories thanks to the skill and craftsmanship that went in to producing such an amazing album.
Thanks Dave you are a star.

Dave was recommended to us when we were looking for a wedding photographer. We found him to be friendly and approachable, and Dave showed us a large sample of his previous work. His selection showed a wide variety of shots and the aftercare work done to make the pictures unique and artistic. We were able to choose shots that we particularly liked, so that Dave could recreate them for us, and he also asked us what we had in mind. Although initially not intending to have photos taken during the evening reception so that guest could relax, we decided to go ahead, and Dave was very discreet and as a result captured some of the most memorable and natural shots of our wedding day. We would both recommend Dave Cropper Photography for his friendly and professional service, with artistic shots taken to a high standard. His services are realistically priced and he creates a unique and beautiful album and dvd with such quality and attention to detail.

We would just like to thank Dave for making our big day even more special and one that we can relive over and over again, thanks to the wonderful album he created for us.
I would highly recommend Dave for any event and would use him for any future celebrations I have.
Thank you again Dave, and people don’t hesitate!

Dave really managed to capture what we're all about as a family! He made us feel relaxed and had some great ideas about different styles of shots we could achieve. Plus it was a great afternoon of fun!
