Sussex wedding photographer's blog bio picture
  • Hi, my name is Dave Perris and I run Lucky Dog Photography.

    I've been working as a full time professional photographer for around twenty years, mainly in press and public relations. My images appear frequently in national newspapers and magazines and I've contributed to several technical books on photography.

    When I moved to Brighton a few years years ago I also started offering my services as a wedding photographer, this now makes up over half of my work. You'll get an idea of my style by looking at some of the blog posts here.

    I've just changed the layout and look of the blog and, as it develops, I'll be putting up lots of tips and advice as well as inviting guest bloggers to talk about their own areas of expertise (please contact me if you are interested).

    Hope you enjoy it, please leave comments and get in touch if you want any information on services or booking.

Les Wollam - Great work and so nice to see an ‘adult’ couple for a change! the shots are so playful. Love the kids.

Lesley Crook - Dear David,

We are thrilled with the photos. Also got into Hello! Magazine on-line. This is the sister site to Hello! print magazine, but they run different content.

Thank you for your patience with us on the day, some were more excitable than others but you managed us beautifully.

Kind regards
