"CUSTOMERS ARE OUR BUSINESS; CUSTOMER SERVICE IS OUR PRIORITY".

How are we different? Well, we are documentary-style wedding photographers. The images are unique to your wedding and can't be replicated at any other wedding. We don't work with wedding photography lists (ever) or take over your day by bellowing instructions to you or your guests. You're free to enjoy your day with little or no interruptions.


Most often, these images will be taken without you noticing them happening. Below is a small sample of what we usually capture during your wedding day.

This photo was taken at the lovely Miskin Manor near Cardiff. Her father didn't really punch her in the face. He was explaining a story, and the bride was laughing.

Not all the images are presented in Black and White. We shoot the image in colour. These are then edited on a high-spec computer with specialist editing software. If I think the image will look better in Black and White, I convert it to Black and White. Some do look good in their natural colour. Here are a few sample colour images.

The little bridesmaid could not wait to get her hands on the Yogurt "again". This was the first time she was covered in it. Thus, the absence of her dress. Just imagine showing her this photograph in 20 years :)

OK, it would help if you now had an idea of what documentary-style photography is all about.

It's capturing the hard-to-repeat candid moments. Just like a news reporter. That's why it's sometimes also called a Photojournalism style. The images are mostly taken without reference to the person looking directly into the camera. Like they do in the movies.


Of course, there are always exceptions at any wedding I photograph. If the bride wants some images of themselves, family, and friends, I will take them for her. I will also take portraits of your family and friends if they want them. They are often looking their best, so why not? But they will be taken quickly, with minimal interaction or direction from me.


Here is a small sample of these type of images.
