Wedding Photographer Oxfordshire | and across the uk
Dale Stephens Photography is a wedding photographer in Oxfordshire perfectly located to cover most of the south of England.
My style as a wedding photographer is very much documentary, although I prefer to use the term 'candid' or 'natural' to describe the way I like to shoot weddings.
I dress and blend in like one of the guests (without the drinking part!), to be unnoticed which allows me to get in close to the action and be part of the actual wedding - I am often asked by guests how I know the couple as they assume that I am a friend or relative of the couple :) I love to photograph weddings from 'inside out' and get a 'guests eye view' of your wedding day. The result of this will give you a real feel for your day when looking back through your wedding photographs.
I am also happy to set aside time for a few important formal group photos to include closest family, bridesmaids and groomsmen. I love to spend time with the bride and groom to do portraits around the grounds and venue or a location close by. But I will not turn your wedding into one big photography shoot! Your marriage is extremely important and my ultimate aim as a wedding photographer is to provide you with beautiful photographs from your day and wedding celebration.
Take a look through my wedding gallery, and my Journal where you will also see an incite into why I take certain photographs. If you would like to discuss you wedding day further and ask me any questions, please contact me, and I will be happy to arrange an informal no-obligation chat with you both - I would love to hear from you.
what I offer as an Oxfordshire wedding photographer....
If you are considering a full day wedding photography coverage I will cover your wedding day from the bridal preparations, the marriage ceremony, right through to your first dance (and a little more). I am flexible with my time so if things do not run as planned, I will still be there to cover the important moments of your day - I don't clock watch. A full days wedding photography, means a full days wedding photography - your marriage is important and deserves to be fully captured!
I love getting to know my couples before their wedding day. A wedding photographer is a big part of your day as they will be there from the getting ready stage right through to the first dance. So getting to know each other a little before you day is important for me and for you to ensure we are suitably matched for your wedding. Which is why I encourage an informal booking meeting over a coffee, whether it is face-to-face, or via Skype or FaceTime. As an added bonus I offer couples who book me for a full day coverage as their wedding photographer the option to add an engagement shoot at a discounted price. I feel an engagement shoot is a great way to get to know each other.
Take a look at my pricing page, or contact me to arrange a free informal (no-obligation) meeting. I hope you get in touch to discuss your wedding day with me.

latest FACEBOOK review | Michaela & Jake's, Wedding in Bicester, Oxfordshire
Absolutely LOVE Dale's work; he doesn't take a bad photo. He puts you at ease and feels like a long term friend. He couldn't be a nicer man. As expected, the photos of our wedding are absolutely breath taking and I really cannot express my amazement at his talent. Dales photographs are outstandingly stunning and he has completely captured the atmosphere and joy of our wedding in our pictures. We will never be able to thank Dale enough or give him enough credit. We shall be recommending him to everyone we know. Our photos are more than perfect and absolutely everything we had hoped for and more. Thank you Dale for being the silent ninja and capturing moments close to our hearts on our special day.

I attempt to post wedding images to social media a couple of times a week, but this tends to not always be the case especially during the busiest times of the wedding season. They are usually images from recent weddings and images that catch my eye during the editing process. Below are images directly from my Instagram feed.
