Welcome to Darren Lovell Photography!
Multi-Award Winning, Dorset-based Wedding, Commercial & Portrait Photographer.
So, who am i? I am a father, another half, the owner of a fairly big forehead (one you could land a house on, apparently) and i'm a brother. I live in the idyllic little market town of Wimborne Minster and have done my whole life. Professional photographey has, for some 9 years, been my work and backbone - capturing images for over 300 Weddings both in the UK and abroad, working with Families, Local and National Businesses, plus regional and National Publications (newspapers, magazines etc).
Alongside running my own business, I'm the 'Head of visual content' for Studio52, a voiceover artist and a film maker. I also write and record music for Television and Radio... so essentially, I dabble in anything creative.
I love motor sport, music and all manner of comedy.
I was a published writer at the age of 13.
A published musician at the age of 25.
All of this has given me an even foundation in the creative arts... so that's nice!
To see what others think about my work, take a moment to look at the TESTIMONIALS section.
