Birmingham Wedding Photographer

About Me

Hi, I am Diven, a professional Birmingham Wedding Photographer.
I ‘ve had the privilege of photographing weddings professionally since 2007.
I was lucky enough to marry my wife Davinder in April 2011 and since then we have been blessed with three beautiful children.
Although Davinder and I had a fantastic wedding day, the one thing that sticks out the most is how fast the day flew by!
Knowing just how important your wedding is, my aim is to capture your day in a way that will do your memories justice and I believe that this can be achieved in a fun and approachable way.
I can fully appreciate that people don’t like having a camera pointed at them, therefore it is my job to help people feel relaxed and at ease, which is then reflected in the photographs being taken.
My philosophy is simple: It’s YOUR wedding day
and YOU should get the photographs that YOU want
Can you remember the excitement you felt as a child when you opened your curtains to find the world outside had been covered by a blanket of snow?
Can you remember how great it feels to run and jump in the largest puddle you can find?
Or the feeling you get when you make eye contact with an attractive stranger and they return a smile, or to have picnics on long lazy summer evenings?
Life is full of special moments that slip by unnoticed, unless we stop for a few minutes to appreciate them.
I specialized in photographing weddings professionally and it’s my aim to timelessly capture life’s precious moments.

My Style

photographing weddings professionally
People describe it to be either documentary, candid or reportage but basically I see it as “storytelling”. I want to tell the whole story of your day and I believe even the smallest of moments need to be captured. I love to get the laughter, the tears and smiles all naturally. We step it up a gear for the portraits and together we can create some epic pictures.

What do you love about weddings?

Being part of of the happiest day of a couples life every single weekend is truly amazing and can’t be beaten. I love building friendships with my couples too and having fun on the day. Finally, I love delivering the images and knowing they can relive the day over and over again.

What advice would you give to couples looking for their perfect wedding photographer?
Look for a photographer that you get on with and feel comfortable with. As photographers, we spend a lot of time with you on your wedding day so make sure you click with them. I love to meet all my couples before the big day over a coffee and get to know each other and chat about wedding. Im happy to meet before booking if it helps you make up your mind. If we can’t do it in personal for some reason, let’s get of FaceTime on. Contact Us!

1. Do you do group shots?


I think group images are an extremely crucial part of weddings, specifically for moms and dads and grandparents. If you wish to have some group shots we will definitely do them.

2. How Long will you stay for on the wedding day?

As a documentary wedding photographer, my aim is to produce a full story of your wedding. I enjoy to start photographing you early in the early morning and remain till late in the night. I enjoy my job and there is no factor to leave the wedding when the party is still on and lots of things are happening around.

3. Do you work on your own?

Yes, typically I work on my own. I attempt to blend in with the visitors as much as possible, observe and capture the moments in an inconspicuous and natural way. If it’s required I happy to arrange a second shooter.

4. Do we need to meet with you before we book you?


I would love to meet with you before the wedding. It is great to be familiar with each other. Obviously, sometimes due to the range or other circumstance it may be difficult to organize a meeting however we can constantly get in touch by email, phone or Skype to discuss the information.

5. What happens if you are ill on our big day?

Absolutely nothing stops me to photograph your wedding! You trust me and I cannot let you down. Unless I have a really serious problem, I will always be on your big day. I have a network of professional photographers throughout the UK who can jump on job and help if needs to.


6. What happens after the wedding?


Most likely you will go on your honeymoon and I will work on your images. As soon as the pictures are ready you will be sent out a link to your secure online gallery. It will take between 3 to 4 weeks.

The USB stick, prints, albums etc. will be produced and sent to your post address in due time.

7. As a Wedding Photographer in Birmingham do you also travel outside of Birmingham?


I am happy to take travel throughout the UK and abroad. For destination weddings or wedding events even more afield I would like to lodging to be offered for the day before and after the wedding.

8. How do we book you?


Please contact us by contact form. If I am readily available, I will send you my booking form to sign and return digitally. A 50% of the booking fee is required to secure the date.

9. There are no postured pictures in your portfolio. Do you take posed pictures?


My primary objective is to tell the story of your wedding day with pictures. The majority of couples pick me because of my documentary approach to wedding photography.

Do you speak any other language than English?

Yes, I do! I speak Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi, Kiswahili, Urdu and Mandrin
