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

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

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..

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

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.

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…

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.

Dear Daniel West

We just couldn’t be happier with the beautiful service you provided for us!

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.

We just couldn’t be happier with the beautiful service you provided for us, Daniel. We will certainly recommend Daniel West to anyone we know. We wish you every success for the future. Your outstanding work clearly speaks for itself.

From the heart, Mr & Mrs Bottger

Daniel, you are absolutely awesome! Never stop doing what you do! The passion you have for what you do is overwhelming and we could not have asked for anybody better to capture the moments of our special day! There are no words to describe how awesome you are and how thankful Willie and I are.

Willie & Tarryn

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.

Nicki & ansie

WOW Daniel, jy was amazing, eintlik is dit so bietjie van n understatement. 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.

Natasha & Graham

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 am sure you hear it all the time, but we could never explain how much we truly love and appreciate the pictures. I never had a doubt in my mind that you would do a great job, especially after we met you for the engagement pictures. 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.
