Your Day - Your Way

Because you can't re-run your Wedding Day


Wedding Photographer of the Year 2019

Are you looking for a wedding photographer in South Wales? Are you getting married next year? Or maybe this year?

Reportage photography, or what's also known as documentary photography, is a photographic style that captures a moment or event in a narrative fashion, i.e., images that tell a story. Reportage photography is perfect if you’re camera shy or self-conscious. Images are fresh, dynamic and unique, as they’re not re-creations. You can relax and enjoy your wedding day. 


If you’re looking for a natural wedding photographer in South Wales, look no further! My style of wedding photography focuses on the real-life moments of your big day. I don’t try to pose or over-complicate things. I’m there to document your day genuinely and authentically.

Some moments need to be captured, moments that make you laugh, cry, smile, remember, and most importantly, moments that you will remember forever. It’s essential to have a wedding photographer capture all the happy moments that come along with your wedding. You want a photographer to capture your wedding day and how you and your guests will remember it. I promise to do just that.

"Jim, from start to finish, gave us a service that was 5* Having Jim there on the day felt very comfortable, with him being there but not realising he was there :) Every photo he captured was the right moment and has given us lasting memories. We could not have asked for anymore throughout the process. We would highly recommend Eyes2Me to anyone who needs special moments captured". Jim, we thank you so much. You are a gentleman and very good at your work 👏🏻 Katie & Tom, Cefn Tilla Court Usk


I live in the heart of Caerphilly, only a short journey into Cardiff, South Wales. My location is perfect for a wedding in the capital's centre, but I also shoot many marriages in rural areas. I'm available for dates throughout the year, but my busiest time is July through October. So book early.


My name is James Matthews. I’m a reportage-styled photographer known for my relaxed, funny and intimate pictures.
A Master Photographer with 30 years of photography experience, and 12  years of shooting weddings.


" James Matthews of Eyes2Me Photography based in Caerphilly has been awarded his Licentiateship of the Master Photographer Association (LMPA) with a stunning panel of Images " MPA 2019

" A lovely guy and outstanding photographer. James was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish, he made us feel so at ease on our wedding day. As a couple who don’t enjoy our photos being taken, he was the perfect photographer for us, created the most amazing photos of our day and sent them over so quickly! A wedding photographer will always be part of a memory of a very special day and we are so grateful ours was James"

I will always take a few "special moments" if required, but I will never work with photo lists. Nope, not even for your wedding.
Your images will be edited using up-to-date specialist software and uploaded to an online gallery. From here, you can view them on any internet-enabled device. Such as Smartphones, ipads, and of course, any computer that's internet enabled. 

The gallery is a one-stop-shop that you can share with family and friends. You can download both high or low-resolution images and order prints—delivered directly from award-winning labs.

You will access your gallery by the link we send you or from the NFC keyring tab, which we will also supply. Just touch your phone with the tab, and up pops your gallery.
