I'm Darren!

In 2008 I established D.B Photography Sussex and have loved every second since! Working with people, forming friendships, and taking great images. Having a passion for photography is something that is vitally important in this job, the days are long and some months feel like just one long wedding day, but I absolutely love it!


Be it a wedding, a family photo-shoot or a commercial campaign, myself, and my team give 100%. Making sure your ideas are listened to and delivered upon, creating fab images you will treasure forever!

I have a studio in Hastings where I am most days with Newborns, Cake smashes, and Family sessions. Our seasonal shoots are very popular and love having families coming in year after year.

I live in Battle with my wife Jade and our 3 & 1-year-old children, Jasper & Juniper. We also have a rescue spaniel who is beautiful and crazy in equal parts!

If you'd like to book something in give us an email or call (Although I can't promise my 3 year old won't answer and start talking about Octonauts or something!)



Steph is my 2nd shooter for wedding days, and having known each other since we were kids, our strong friendship helps to create the best photographs for your big day. The fact that we are able to bounce ideas off each other with ease really does make for the perfect combination. If you choose us for your wedding day coverage, Steph will be with one of you to create fun and relaxed images before the ceremony. Then she will be capturing the candid shots throughout the day.

Jade is the behind the scenes wizard of D.B Photography Sussex. Much of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes is down to her very talented hands. Jade deals with much of the correspondence to the website and Facebook page and does so with professionalism and punctuality. As well as this she does most of the photography post production. She also works as my second shooter on the occasional wedding! As well as this she happens to be my lovely Wife and mother of our children, Jasper & Juniper.

Aleisha has been with our company since 2016 as an assistant for weekday weddings. Her background and passion for art lead her to come up with some truly creative and innovative shots during shoots and weddings. Aleisha is involved in many aspects of our business not just taking the photos, including admin, and post-production. She also helps out in the studio, especially during the Christmas mini session season.
