Victoria Dolman Photography | Blog

Hi there! 

Thank you for stopping by and finding out more about Victoria Dolman Wedding Photography. Photography for me is a passion. I love the fact that each and every wedding is unique. A different couple, a different dress, perhaps a church wedding or a charming country house reception. There is nothing more rewarding than working with a couple to understand their vision for how they want their wedding day to be and being able to deliver a fantastic set of images unique to that couple. 


Being based in Derby, Derbyshire I am well positioned to travel throughout the Midlands to provide wedding photography for Derby, Stafford, Burton, Stoke, Cheadle, Nottingham, Leicester, Ashbourne and beyond. 


'Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
— Elliott Erwitt
