I dont like to be in the spot light, so Id rather have my clients speak for themselves.
Heres a few things which my clients said about me

Have a testimonial you’d like to share? Please email me at info@danielwest.photo

From beginning to end, Daniel was honestly nothing short of amazing. I reached out to Daniel to assist me in photographing my engagement/proposal and he helped me conceptualize the day, gave me tips on how to keep everything a secret from my now fiancé and on the day, Daniel somehow made all the nerves disappear. Through the use of his quirky jokes and bubbly personality, Daniel somehow managed to make us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera (and managed to maintain the secret too!). Last but most certainly not least, the photo’s (and video) came out EXECPTIONALLY and I couldn’t be happier that Daniel was there to allow us to cherish this incredible moment forever.

Thank you Daniel, I appreciate all the effort you went to for us. Highly, highly recommended photographer.

Jason & Julia

Daniel really went above and beyond for our wedding day, even with us planning from a different country Daniel was able to capture our special day and make us feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera! We loved working with him, he really added that extra touch to our day and was just phenomenal!

Meggan & Wayde

Absolute best decision we made!! Daniel West captured our wedding day perfectly and every moment in such detail. Will recommend him any day!! 👌🏻🥂😁

Madelein & Roald
Daniel did a phenomenal job.

He didn’t just come to perform his duties and then leave.

He was invested in every moment.
Even as my wife and I look through our album a couple years later, the work Daniel has done for us is still far higher quality than some other photos we have seen.

That’s actually what my wife and I wanted.
To look back on our day and remember everything as if it happened yesterday.

Thank you Daniel.

Amy and Andrew
Great photographer and always doing his best.
Sorinca and Mathew

Daniel West, wow, where do we begin… An absolutely brilliant photographer is an understatement. He is an artist and so incredibly passionate about he’s work. From our engagment shoot, we knew that this is the person we need to shoot out wedding day. We knew he was the best from day 1. The picture quality is overwhelming, he is extremely creative and the photos are worth every cent…. He makes you feel comfortable throughout the shoot and creates an exciting atmosphere, the service was amazing. I would highly recommend Daniel West to anyone who is looking for the best. Thank you Daniel for capturing our special moments and making our dream wedding a reality.

Anastasia and Jody

“Sometimes there is no next time. No second chance. No time out. It is now or never”

I am all head and Jeanette is all hart. She the extrovert that never says no for a photo opportunity or social media, I on the other hand prefer to live my life privately with moments captured in my memory.

I am a person for the detail, fussy and a bit OCD and she the go with the flow, all smiles and pleasing. And so with this challenge at hand Jeanette set out to find that photographer/artist that would tick all of the boxes. Over a coffee in the good old days before lockdown (for which I was late) I rushed into what was Bootleggers, bit flustered and still hype from my meeting that overran. Jeanette was having coffee with Daniel already. I just fell into the conversation and within minutes I felt very comfortable. There was just that chemistry, which to Jeanette and I was the deciding factor if we were deadlocked on who to pick.

We had to postpone our Nuptials three times – thank you C19; but Daniel stuck with us, and we with him because of that chemistry. (Only later did we find out about all his awards and accolades.)

On our big day he was present, but not there. That made such a difference as one could just be. Be yourself, be in the moment and actually experience your own wedding. Never did it feel like he was intruding or interrupting the flow he just blended in seamlessly. By then he had gotten to know us which also made  us feel at ease, never did it feel like  photoshoot or pictures force posed like models. His calm and engaging demeanor made  those “mandatory” pictures a fun event without detracting from US………………and when we were alone with just him it always felt like we could breath, exhale, soak in that one day, a minute at a time whilst he was working his magic.

It has now been 11 days since our BIG day and whilst he is looking us look fab working away in his studio we cant wait to see the final product. We know it will be memories captured to be remembered and shared –  that will be timeless and part of our perfect day.

Ferdie and Jeanette

It was an absolute pleasure working with Daniel. He was able captured the the important moments of the wedding and give insight into how the vide was on our special day through his photographs. We really appreciate your creativity and direction through out the day. We also applaud you on having patience and making us feel comfortable at every moment. Thank you for capturing the wedding as if it was through our eyes.

Lu-Anne and Tsohle
Was nothing but a pleasure to have Daniel be our wedding photographer. He is kind and makes a person feel very comfortable and our photos are honestly PERFECT. Highly recommended.

What an AMAZING experience! 👌🏻
The first time I met Daniel it was the day of the shoot he was so friendly and talkative and so kind and immediately he made you feel welcome and comfortable. He knew our names and not for one second made you feel unwanted or uncomfortable. I Absolutely Loved working with this talented photographer! It was definitely the most fun I have ever had with a photographer.
His work is unbelievable and he is so fantastic to work with. I would definitely recommend using him as your wedding photographer to capture the beauty of you and your husband on that special most memorable day. Thank you Daniel for your amazing work and dedication to your work. You are just great, and we are so so grateful that you were our photographer. We can not wait to see what you’ve created with our photos. You are so awesome, keep up your excellent work xx

Erika and Ruben

Having Daniel as our wedding photographer was the best decision we made!! He goes above and beyond to get the photos he want. We’re not the type of couple who go for photoshoots at all, but Daniel made is feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He is out and out a complete professional. We would highly recommend Daniel for anyone looking for a wedding photographer and are so excited to see the results!

Christelle and Tyrone

Daniel was super behulpsaam van begin tot einde.

Die mooiste fotos geneem en elke oomblik vasgevang soos geen mens sal kan indink nie.

Meer as gelukkig met my keuse en sal hom aanbeveel enige dag vir elke bruid daar buite.

Daniel, baie dankie en dit was ‘n fees.

Sarel & Ionne

I don’t have to say anything about the photos Daniel took. Our wedding photos are out of this world. And everyone can see that.
But what people can’t see looking at these photos is that the same quality and professionalism that everyone can see on photos is happening behind the camera.

It is shame that people who see our photos will never know how awesome is that person who took these photos.

Daniel constantly made us laugh. Before the wedding I was worried that I don’t know what to do in front of the camera but Daniel was brilliant guiding us! And even though we had a time limit and tight schedule I didn’t feel rushed at any point on my wedding day. He created a very relaxing atmosphere and also worked very well together with a videographer.

The day after wedding, when we finally had time to check our phones we found that Daniel had already sent us our first sneak peak photos! What? How is this possible? Did he even sleep?

Thank you so much Daniel for taking time to come and be part of our wedding. We had a perfect day and thanks to you we now have all these memories captured. We really could’t ask for better photographer! You are so talented! Keep doing what you doing! ❤️❤️❤️🍓🍓🍓

Jason and Krislin | Estonia

We only have praises to sing about Daniel, besides his professional and easy manner, he was well prepared, went over and above what we expected and delivered some of the most beautiful photos (in record time!). His skills with low light settings and endless energy ensured he caught every special moment. We can only be grateful to have been in such good hands on our special day, not to mention his great personality that added some much needed calm and structure. Excellent work and we sincerely recommend his services.

Simone & Russel

Daniel is not just a photographer, he is an artist! We are completely overjoyed with our wedding photo album and just cannot stop looking at them. Daniel captures stunning compositions making the absolute best of the setting, and also the stolen moments between loved ones and families which are so precious on a wedding day. We will be looking at these photos for the rest of our lives and cannot imagine ever tiring of them! Thank you so much Daniel for capturing our day with your wonderful images.

George & Hannah [England]

Daniel was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding, and our wedding was a dream come true! Daniel is beyond talented at what he does, he is an incredible photographer and I cannot begin to describe how happy we are knowing that he captured our day and captured the essence of our wedding the way we envisioned! 10/5 stars!!

Zanarchy and Azola

Planning for a wedding can be both stressful and nerve-wrecking to say the least. We can’t emphasize how grateful we are to have had Daniel as our photographer. On our engagement shoot, he made us feel like we were naturals in front of the camera. The manner in which he took the pictures made us even forget that he was there. Daniel’s use of lighting and ability to capture those sneaky moments that you would simply not think of is absolutely amazing. Daniel’s skills as a photographer are incomparable but what sets him above the rest was his ability to understand us, make us feel at ease and offer great suggestions before and throughout our special day. He really will go above and beyond for his clients and we feel exceptionally lucky that he was available and willing to work with us for our big day. I would highly recommend Daniel West to any and everyone!

Thishan & Neshrini

Best photographer, Daniel captured the best moments of our wedding and engagement shoot. We recommend his work as he takes perfection to the next level! Thank you Daniel for capturing the perfect moments of our dreams!

Kyle & Sjanelle

From my first contact with Daniel for a pre-wed and proposal shoot in S.Africa, he has been absolutely helpful and goes beyond his means to cater to our request and expectations. Daniel is meticulous and was detailed in his planning for the itinerary of the whole day shoot. On the actual day of the photoshoot, Daniel is extremely patient and you will not have the feeling of being rushed. We are absolutely grateful and happy to have engaged him as a photographer as the pictures turn out stunning and it was the theme and feeling for how we want the photos to convey! We highly recommend to engage Daniel as your once in a lifetime photographer!

Nicolas & Joslyn

My husband and I chose Daniel not only because of his amazing photographs but also because we liked his personality and thought he would be great for the guests. I am so glad we did! Everybody loved him and had only good things to say about him. My brother told me immediately after the wedding that he also wanted to book Daniel for his wedding. Thank you Daniel for making our day that extra bit more special and making us feel amazing.
Best wedding photographer out there!

Mark & Caroline

What an unbelievable experience. Daniel West exceeded all expectations before, during and after our wedding day. A true master of his craft. Thank you.

Marc & Lori
In my mind the photographer is the most important, the photos are really all you have to take away from THE day. I told Chris (my fiancé at the time, now husband) I want the best photographer,

From the moment I saw Daniels photos I knew he was the guy I want to capture our special day. He is an artist, not an ordinary photographer. Anybody can pick up a camera and shoot, but it takes an artistic eye, a key observation and knowledge of people to create the master pieces of art that Daniel does.

From day 1 Daniel was extremely helpful, friendly and absolutely amazing, right through to the end. Every single image he has shared with us is absolutely spectacular. I can’t thank him enough for everything he has done. Our guest could not stop raving about him. Comments after the wedding was something along the lines of; that photographer at your wedding was so fantastic and what a nice guy! We were sad to say goodbye.

We wish you all the success Daniel! Thank you again for everything!

Chris & Alida
We absolutely could not have asked for anyone better! From the minute we met I knew that it had to be Daniel West to capture our most important day. His complete professionalism as well as fun spontaneity put us both at ease and all of our fears of being photographed evaporated instantly.
Thank you for taking us out of our comfort zones as well, just because it was so much fun to do!
The photographs as well as the engagement photos have been absolutely incredible and of world class standard.
Kindest of regards,
Chris & Kelly Davey
Chris & Kelly

Daniel not only takes exceptional photos but to me it was his warm personality and ability to make everyone feel comfortable that really stood out! Daniel is professional, he knows what he wants and is highly creative, on top of all that he kept me calm through many stressful moments on my wedding day. My husband and I cannot express how grateful we are to have had Daniel part of our special day. Thank you!!!!

Wessel and Simone

As we started to plan our wedding in Seychelles the first thing we did was searching for a great photographer there. It came out, that we just didn’t like the style. Even if it sounds arrogant: no one was good enough for us. Daniel was our silver lining. We fall in love with his photographs from the beginning when we opened his website. After our request we skyped the first time. We have to say, that he was very happy to answer all our questions patiently. It was so much fun! He is very kind, professional, funny…. everything a world’s best photographer needs! He also asked about our wishes and ideas. On our wedding day he accompanied us from the getting ready to the “end“. It was like having a friend around, but he was also able to blend in and to become invisible. Our whole family loves him! We also had a post wedding shooting, where Daniel showed us all his creativity. We felt so comfortable all the time.
Daniel, thank you for that amazing experience. It was such a pleasure to work with you. And the photographs are just amazing. We could not be happier about them and your work. We will not hesitate to book you again, even if you have to come to Germany 😉 We can only recommend you and your work! THANK YOU!
Christian and Lisa

Lisa & Christiaan [Seyschelles]

The most amazing wedding photographer! We loved each and every one of our wedding photos. Daniel is so professional and friendly and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera.

Ricardo & Trisca

What can we say other than WOW! We were lucky enough to get an open slot with Dan, and looking back we can count our lucky stars! He was a dream to work with, from beginning to end, great advice, great attitude, phenomenal photos and all round just a lovely person to deal with. Everyone at the wedding complimented him after the fact on his demeanour, and we were both very comfortable and relaxed with him throughout the whole process, from engagement shoot, venue recces and most importantly on the day. Daniel captured unforgettable moments, and the professionalism and quality of the work supplied was out of this world. To add to that, he was extremely patient and helpful during the process of choosing the photos and designing the album, which I am sure would have been a heavy task for anyone else with a short temper, but not Dan! Thank you for everything, you made great work of our special day, and would highly recommend him to anyone!

Francois and Taryn

Speechless – the only way to describe how Daniel’s photos made us feel. They say choosing the right photographer is difficult – not for us. We knew almost instantly Daniel was the right photographer for us. From the lead up to our actual wedding day, Daniel was nothing short of amazing. We felt honored to have Daniel’s positive presence with us on our big day and are so grateful to have shared our wedding day with him.

Ian & Amy [England]

Daniel West is an amazing wedding photographer. From the absolute beginning, Daniel was supportive by giving substantial advice and guidance and by offering great and prompt communication. He was incredibly friendly and fun which made us feel completely at ease and comfortable on our special day. Daniel is passionate about his work and this fact most certainly shines through in the quality and uniqueness of his photos. I cannot possibly recommend him enough!

Rowan & Christina [USA]

To my absolutely amazing photographer… THANK YOU!!!! Thank you for mainly ur patience 🙏
Thank you for working with me and creating the most important treasure of my life…

Jenisha & Sahil [ Durban]

Absolutely loved Daniel West – from the meeting to the day of the wedding. He was fun and professional and knows how to capture wonderful, funny, exciting and loving moments. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the photo shoot, it was fun and relaxed and did not even noticed the time. Also, I’ve never encountered a photographer who smiled so much, Daniel creates such a relaxed and happy environment that you can’t help but feel giddy and absolutely happy in love. Thank you Daniel for being patient with us and for capturing our wedding day. Take Care

Melody & Keoma(Abu Dabi – UAE)

We just got back from our honeymoon and thought of u in all the places we visited. We said imagine what brilliant pics Daniel would take of us if u were there. I want to thank u so much for the amazing job you did at our wedding. You are so professional and helped me control my nerves. You are phenomenal and I am so glad I had u as my photographer ☺☺☺

Prianka & Nicolan

Working with Daniel has been an absolute pleasure, he does not only capture your special moment but becomes apart of every moment making it memorable. Your patience, zeal and care towards my husband and i will remain a footprint in our hearts..

You definitely charmed the whole family with your professional way of being.

Love Zelda & Sebastian

Sebastian & Zelda

The eye for detail are second for none. Daniel makes you feel very relaxed during the photoshoot and the quality of the photos are the best you could ever ask for. He is Excellent. We will definitely use him again. Thanks Daniel we appreciate all your hard work and effort. Kyle & Chantell Gray

Kyle and Chantell Gray

Daniel is a photographic genius! His photographs are not just pictures capturing memories, but are works of art.

When looking for a wedding photographer, we struggled to connect with the work of some photographers, but when we came across Daniel’s portfolio, we were absolutely blown away by his creativeness and ability to capture emotion as perfectly as he does.

Our engagement photos were absolutely beautiful and we are so excited to see the rest of our wedding photos.

Daniel made the whole shoot effortless for us and went out of his way to capture the shots we requested.

His work speaks for itself and we would highly recommend Daniel West Wedding Photography to any couple looking for a photographer that exudes professionalism and produces works of art, all while capturing your priceless memories.

We are ever grateful we had Daniel as our photographer.

Matthew and Madonna Hendry

Madonna & Matthew

No doubt Daniel is an excellent photographer. He is passionate about photography and always know how to take an amazing pic. He gave me a framework of a shooting plan after getting to know my shooting demands, and this inspired me a lot. I can say that I loved his plan once I saw it. He is nice and humorous, guiding us to perform in a proper way. Working with him was full of fun even sometimes I felt tired with my heavy wedding dress and high heel shoes. So excited about the pics taken by him.

Yuhang Liu [China]

Daniel is an excellent photographer & creative genius!! (And he’s got the photos and awards to prove that!! Just have a look at his website!!)
He made even my ‘not-fond-of-photos-let-just-take-one-and-get-it-done-with’ husband feel comfortable and actually got him excited about the wedding shoot after our he saw how much fun Daniel is to work with, at our engagement shoot.
There’s no photographer you would rather want to handle your most important memories – He over delivers every time!

I will keep coming back when we need a photoshoot done – absolutely a die hard fan of your work Daniel!!

Coralie & Willem

Not only is Daniel an exceptional artist, he is a wonderful, warm person too!

I spent a long time looking for a wedding photogtapher, but when I stumbled across Daniel’s portfolio, I was blown away by the originality of his pictures, as well as the unique way in which he captures every intimate emotion with such finesse. Once we got chatting, I was sold! Daniel will go to any length to make sure the bridal couple is completely happy. From tailor making our packages, to his warm friendly nature, and his extemely professional manner, Daniel was one of our best wedding choices!

Thank you for making us feel like your biggest passion during our wedding was us! Thank you for making us feel comfortable and for making the usually awkward process easy, relaxed and so fun! Lastly, thank you for the beautiful images you captured for us. I honestly could not have asked for more.

Lots of love from
Keshav and Nishthal Mahabir

Nishthal & Keshav [Durban]
Honestly if I think back to the wedding there’s a few emotional experiences that were special because of the family element, but of all the providers I can only sing your praises! You made me feel so comfortable and relaxed as a bride.
Now days, a part of getting ready and preparing to walk down the isle involves the pictures with the bridesmaids in gowns… This was almost awkward for me because of the fit of the gown (yes it flew open once or twice), but you never reacted – your calmness was a delight and I would recommend you to anyone anytime, any day!
Also, now that we’ve seen some family members after the wedding and coming back from honeymoon, I’ve heard 3 couples say you were excellent! This speaks to your professional  conduct and friendliness. Lastly, a special thanks for making the best of the cold and rainy weather.
Eduard & Ane Schlechter

Finding a good wedding photographer can be stressful. Getting someone who can accurately capture the essence of one’s relationship is a rare thing. We are fortunate to call Niel, who just happens to be the most amazing photographer in the world, our close friend. It was therefore an easy decision to book him to shoot our wedding.

We have seen some of his work previously, and so knew that he was a talented photographer. What really blew us away however, was his absolute professionalism, passion and dedication to the shoot. His skill in making the best of fading sunlight on a late afternoon in woodland is a wonder.

He is also very understanding, and knew that we didn’t want to keep the guests waiting outside too long. He managed to give us the most stunning photos on a tight time schedule, and his jovial manner in dealing with all the family had everyone genuinely smiling for all the photos.

In addition, he worked tirelessly the entire night, capturing the dinner, party and after-party. He worked long after he was officially off-duty, and caught memories that we will treasure forever.

Overall, his enthusiasm, relaxing approach, understanding of family dynamics, tirelessness and professionalism were truly fantastic, and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

Devon & Mariska

We did a fair amount of research when we were looking for a wedding photographer and when we found Daniel, there was just something that gave him the edge. We are so glad that we chose him.
His enthusiasm and creative skill amazed us. His attention to detail and his willingness to listen to our ideas while bringing his own creative flare really sets him apart. His understanding of people and his ability to communicate left him with nothing but compliments from both the guests as well as the other service providers.
Thank you Daniel, for capturing our special day the way you did and providing us with marvelous photos and the exceptional albums. You have an incredible talent for what you do!
From Gil & Mariza

Gilbert & Mariza

Daniel West is the best wedding photographer you’ll ever find. He is a gentleman, has a great sense of humor, loves what he does, knows what it feels like to be in love, values his own marriage, and all this comes through in his photographs.
Adelle and I were so comfortable in front of his camera that he captured us as individuals perfectly, as well as capturing the essence of our relationship. Every time we look at our engagement and wedding photos, we fall in love all over again. We were genuinely THRILLED with our album, as well as Dan’s personal ‘customer service’ after everything was said and done.
Two couples at our wedding have already booked Dan for *their* weddings, because they could see just how professional and on-the-ball he is, and how natural we were with him.
Thank you Dan. We love you.

Pamela and Adelle

Oh. My. Soul. Daniel! Our photographs are MAGNIFICENT! THANK YOU!!! We could not have imagined or asked for a better, more magical day captured by the a true artist! Thank you for making us feel like the most perfect and special bridal couple ever. We love you xxx

Shaun and Yolandie

Oh. My. Word. Daniel was super friendly and enthusiastic right from the beginning. He responds very quickly to emails. It was an absolute pleasure to meet him, our shoot was FUN, comfortable and completely natural. Being very awkward as we are with “photoshoots”, Daniel’s session was nothing like we’ve experienced before, and not only were we completely comfortable- our photos are just phenomenal, next level, out of this world! He is so chatty and easy to talk to. We’ve booked him for our Big Day and we’re totally extatic about that, can’t wait. I just know this unique photographer will go véry far. THANK YOU and be blessed.


What a wonderful experience it has been working with such a talented photographer. You really captured the pure essence of our journey from the engagement shoot to our wedding truly showing our happiness and love for one another. You really do go the extra mile.


Woorde kan nie beskryf hoe goed jy is in jou werk nie.. jy doen altyd ekstra moeite met jou mense. Jy laat ons so gemaklik voel. Baie baie baie dankie

Truche Botha

Hey Daniel… Well what can I say… You completely blew us away!!! We love the photos so much and could not be more thankful…

They really came out incredible and you did such an awesome shoot!

Thanks for always making us feel comfortable and making us look awesome! Thanks for your patience, suggestions and creativity of course.

We really glad we decided to do the Trash the Dress shoot and the results make us want to do it all over again because of how fun it was.

Leo and I are super thankful for the amazing photos yet again!

Daniella & Leo

They say photos are only memories…but our wedding photos are moments, captured forever! What an honour to had you as our photographer! Our photos truly represent every emotion that was felt on our Big Day! You can almost feel the wind grazing through the grass…almost feel how the sun kisses you at the trout ponds…ALL JUST BY LOOKING AT YOUR PHOTOS. We would definitely recommend you to any wedding couple! Can’t wait for a next shoot with you..

Alicia and Neill

Dear dearest Daniel,
Finding a photographer eager to capture our special day was not easy – thank you for accepting us.

Starting from our first interaction we were excited to have you on-board. According to Google, love is ‘the strong feeling of affection, a great interest and pleasure in something’ – we felt that with, and for you from the onset.

I remember our discussion prior to our engagement shoot. I told you that I am not fond of being photographed. You laughed showing your beautiful smile and told me to relax and to just be. You jumped through hoops to make the shoot at OR Tambo happen – you listened to us and acknowledged our passion for travel – thank you. The video is BEAUTIFUL!

Fast forward to our wedding – you and Marsonè were the perfect team. We were relaxed yet energised by your enthusiasm and creativity. You managed (beautifully) to snap two brides getting ready for one of the most important ‘dates’ of their lives. You captured it charmingly.

Looking at the images it seems as if you were present at more than one place at a given time. Your professionalism and personable manner were commented on by many of our guests.

We need to thank you, but where to begin – those two words will never be enough. You feel like family – you witnessed an intimate moment in time and because of your passion and expertise we have exceptional and everlasting mementos of our union.

THANK YOU dearest dear Niel, Daniel, Mr West.

Rujeanne en Ilse

Ongelooflik professioneel en doen moeite.
Ons het dadelik gemaklik gevoel met jou , baie dankie vir vandag se shoot.Ons sal defenitief jou verwys na mense!

Zinell en Paul

All one have left of such a special proposal is the diamond and the memories you captured. This will last us a lifetime. Thank you Daniel!

Daniel is the best most creative and passionate photographer.
He made our wedding day so magical and made the memories extra special with his professionalism and vision.

Greame & Kelly

That is probably the last thing professional photographer Daniel West expected on Saturday 16 April 2016. As we all know, the life of professional photographers consists of endless hours out in the field, not to mention the administration and editing that often keeps them awake for days…
However, true commitment came from professional West, during an exquisite wedding day of Michelle & Michael at L’Aquila Country Estate on Saturday 16th April 2016. The day could not be more perfect when at the last minute the couple’s initial photographer cancelled due to family responsibility. Time was of the essence as the preparation and excitement of this special day could not be remembered by thought only.
We at L’Aquila Country Estate took only a few moments to realize that there could only be one professional photographer to save the day, even though of his busy schedule. The call was made, another shoot postponed and the day turned out perfect due to one person realizing the dreams of a couple who was just starting the rest of their lives together.
From the wedding family and L’Aquila Country Estate, a BIG hank you to Daniel West for proving that care and understanding is well alive…


L’Aquila Wedding Venue

Myself and my wife Jeanika Jacobs got married on the 27th of February this year and we were privileged enough to have Daniel West as our wedding photographer.

Daniel West exceeded all our expectations and captured our special day as a true fairytale depicted through his photographs.

Every picture captured our love for each other, for our baby girl and the love we have for our family and friends. Daniel West has so much passion for what he does, in combination with his unrivaled talent, professionalism and attention to detail, this makes Daniel West one of the best photographers in South Africa in my opinion. From making you feel comfortable in front of the camera to sharing in the excitement of your big day and just being an awesome person in general, Daniel West will not disappoint.

Regards Stuart & Jeanika

Stuart & Jeanika

It’s hard to say anything specific about Daniel’s photos coz his work speaks for itself, but I can tell there is a wonderful man behind the lens who makes u feel comfortable and secure of the final result… Tks meu amigo…

Riandi en JP

Finding the right photographer is so important, because your wedding photos are the only things that you have left of your special day, capturing memories from the beginning to the end….

Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words! Daniel surely captured the most amazing photos of our special day!

Thank you so much for your time, efforts and spectacular work! We’d also especially like to thank you for your support along the way, which might I add has been quite a lengthy time considering our initial enquiry was in 2013.

For our wedding day, the best advice we got was to not disappoint ourselves on two things: 1. Have awesome rings and 2. have awesome photos.  These are the things that are going to last forever and be a nostalgic trip down memory lane in many years to come.  Daniel West was our ‘top of the list’ choice for the photographs and he delivered on everything we expected and more.  The final products we received from him was of superb quality.  The way the photographs were captured on the day was also a pleasure.  We were comfortable with having the photographers around us at all times.  each picture turned out as a work of art fit for any gallery.

Jy was die cherrie op die koek met ons groot dag, van dag een af het julle ons sooo gemaklik laat voel, lekker lag en gesels.  Baie dankie vir al jou geduld, goeie idees en n stunning eind produk!!! Ek kon nie vir beter gevra het nie.

I would like to thank Daniel West Photography for our AMAZING wedding photos.

We got married on the 7th of December 2012 and heard of Daniel West from a friend, we met with Daniel a few times discussing ideas. He was polite, friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the start.

We enjoyed doing a very fun pre wedding shoot with him (needless to say the photos came out stunning) he really captured our relationship. I really love the pre wedding shoot photos. I had such an amazing bridal party we also decided to do a bridesmaid shoot which the girls loved it was so much fun.Finally we got to the wedding, and Daniel West Photography was there with us through every step, to capture every moment.

Our photos came out stunning! Natural! I could not believe how they captured the finer details of our special day. The albums came together so nicely. Telling the whole days story from beginning to end.

Our guests can not stop telling me what a delight he was, and how stunning the photos, canvases and albums are.

Thanks so much Daniel!!!

I will be recommending you to ANYONE who has a need of an excellent photographer. I just wish we had more occasions to use you! Thank you Daniel, from the bottom of our hearts, you exceeded our highest expectations.

You are a true artist and a memory catcher, you inspire and dream…
You are the most extreme photographer I have ever met! Thank you for taking our memories and making it infinite, thank you for taking our love and capturing it, thank you for taking the passion of the day and printing it on images… I felt like a super star on my wedding and you rocked the photographs!
Whenever we see the photographs it takes us back in time as if it were our wedding day again, the feelings, the fun, the love and the passion. Thank you so much for creating images we will enjoy, love, remember and cherish for a lifetime.
