A large part of our business is built on referrals. We take great pride in that – the fact that people enjoy working with us enough to recommend Danish Apple Photography to their friends and relatives is a huge honour, a mark of trust. Here’s what just a few of our past (and present) clients have to say about us;
From a happy Mr and Mrs!
“I am not very sure where to start, so much to say!
From the 1st meeting everything was explained in detail, any questions were answered I had and then the numerous questions I had up until the day we got married – and there were many 🙂
We did a pre-wedding shoot as well which was fabulous as photos are not my favourite thing but we thoroughly enjoyed it as we were made to feel very comfortable and the mood was set as friendly and humorous on some occasions – if you laugh at Jakob’s jokes (hahaha)
I cannot fault the service in any way what so ever. Both Jakob and Dasha were fantastic, reliable, flexible, helpful, professional, encouraging, punctual, understanding and the list goes on.
We could not have asked for better photographers for our special day – I will continue to recommend them to anyone I hear of that is looking for a photographer. They are honestly an absolute pleasure to work with and have around on our day; they took the stress and pain of photos away totally.
We will hopefully be using them again this year to do another photo shoot, possible ‘trash the dress’ opportunity (one more chance to wear my wedding dress)! I look forward to being able to use a professional and experienced service again. The photobook, photos, disc, memory stick video are unbelievable quality and beautifully done.
If you want FANTASTIC service all round………………………you would be stupid to look elsewhere – trust us!!!!”

From another happily married couple:
“Where to begin there is so much to say. It was a lucky day when we found Danish Apple photography through a recommendation on the Tiers of Happiness website. Right from the initial consultation we both knew that ONLY Jakob and Dasha could be the ones to photograph our special day. They explained everything in detail and answered all our questions. There was no high pressure sales and we walked away knowing our wedding photos were in good hands.
On our pre-wedding photo shoot we felt so comfortable and relaxed. It was a cold windy day and laughing and stomping around Richmond Park made us forget how cold it was. In the end Jakob created a piece of art picture of us and a VW Beetle it was absolute perfection and will hang on our wall forever!!
When the big day arrived Jakob and Dasha arrived to take pictures at 7:30 am and stayed with us for the whole day. They took all the pictures that we could possibly have wanted and ones we had no idea we wanted! Plus loads of our friends and family. One of our guests referred to Jakob as the sniper because he was there capturing every moment and you never knew he was there until you heard a small click.
We are immensely happy with the photographs and slideshow and the blinged heart memory stick is a beautiful touch. They captured the day and elevated it into a series of images that have drawn enthusiastic compliments from all our family and friends. Not to mention that they made us, two ordinary people, look and feel like celebrities. We will have many fond memories just looking back at these pictures in future years and can’t wait to see our completed book. Jakob and Dasha are professional, considerate and perceptive. They truly listen to you and capture exactly what you had in mind. They make you feel at ease and produce amazing works of art. We have all ready had the pleasure to recommended them and truly believe anyone would be daft not to have them capture their big day.”

Corporate photoshoot for Reckitt Benckiser Group plc, a top 10 UK FTSE listed plc:
“Jakob has produced great photos of the RB Board. Not only are his photos amazing, he is also incredibly flexible, easy going and a pleasure to work with.”
From a national campaign for a global UK-listed plc:
“Jakob is an absolute genius behind the lens. He has a real knack for putting people at ease, and this shows in the results. Jakob recently did some photography for us as part of a national corporate campaign to reduce office waste. A dull subject? Yes. But the brief was to bring a sense of fun into the campaign; to engage people and inspire them to take action. It was a visual campaign and the value weighed largely on the impact of the imagery – it had to be emotive, fun and personal. Most importantly it had to translate key messages to get colleagues to take action. The campaign has been a terrific success and smashed targets. We have got people excited over a generally dull subject. A large part of this success is due to the professional, highly creative photography done by Jakob. He goes beyond the brief to deliver far more than you could imagine. Thanks Jakob!!”
“Jakob has that unusual quality that coaxes nervous people into opening up and being themselves. Having watched him making my clients laugh and actually relax into ‘normal’ smiles, I then found myself in the unexpected position of being in front of the camera. Jakob so perfectly captured ‘me’ that I have since used the photos for professional profiles, work presentations, articles…everything!
My clients loved Jakob and said: ‘The photos are great and I’m sure we will be able to use one in our Annual Review next year [as well]. Please pass on my thanks again to Jakob.’
The photos from the shoot were used for a new corporate website and in several case studies within my own company.
I wouldn’t hesitate to book Jakob again for business or personal events.”
Honor Clement-Hayes, hibu
Team photos for a local community charity website:
“Jakob was brilliant and managed to relax everyone, most of whom were very anxious about having their picture taken (including me) so that was pretty impressive in itself! Many thanks for these pictures, they are fab.”
Several fitness photoshoots:
“I first met Jakob at work: I was covering for a personal trainer in a gym and when he saw me he came up to me to talk and immediately we got on very well. Jakob is very polite, funny and open and he puts you at ease straight away.
When he told me he does photography I was interested to see his work. As a female bodybuilder I’m always interested in a good photoshoot. When he showed me his previous work I could tell Jakob is something different. He is a maximalist, he wouldn’t settle for anything but the best. We set up a date to do a mini shoot in their gym and I was very impressed with his professionalism. He was full with ideas. I found it very easy to work with him. He was friendly and he would not stop until he gets the best possible photos.
After the first shoot we had others to follow and Jakob was well prepared all the time. We always talked beforehand to share the ideas. It was more like a brainstorming session to agree on what shots we would like to do and what is needed.
Oh and I need to mention his little ‘helper’, Dasha, who is just as professional as Jakob, they work together very well and sometimes she has an even better idea! A lovely couple with a true passion for photography!
I can only recommend them to everyone who is looking for a pleasant way to mark a special day or event. Browse through Jakob’s work and you will see why – the photos talk for themselves.”

From another fitness photoshoot:
“I had my first shoot with Danish Apple Photography last year after my first physique show, I cannot recommend them highly enough, great service, made me feel very comfortable. The shots are very impressive and Jakob is a master at lighting!! I’ll definitely be using them again! Many thanks x”
From a newborn photoshoot:
“We are very happy with your work when you photographed my son just few days after he was born.
All moment on the pictures was very impressive as well as the print out quality is very good on the album we got.
For sure we will appoint you again for our family special event, and I will tell my son in the future when he will get married to appoint you as his photographer!”
From a family photoshoot:
Just wanted to let you know that your recent photographs of myself and my family have become real hits with all around. You masterly caught the moments and our personalities in a way, that reflects the true sense of what we all know from our daily life, but which is normally so difficult for us to record photographically. The photos have become great memorabilia. It was a pleasure to be “directed” by you and Dasha, and although we are not always easy to handle, we still had a lot of good fun during the shooting.
If you don’t mind we will surely come around for more of those, as time goes by. “
