Hello, I’m Guy, a Wedding Photographer covering London & the South East, Cardiff & South Wales & Bristol!
I shoot weddings from the guests’ perspective…
I love the photo above. It’s what I love to shoot and evokes emotion – it’s the kind of photography that a photographer can’t stage – it just happens, and it’s my job to be there when it does.
All brides and grooms cherish the memorable moments of their special day, and an experienced photographer must be able to be in the right spot at the right time to get the shot.
Some Brief Wedding Photography FAQs
Q. WE LIKE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY AND ARE READY TO BOOK OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER. WHAT DO WE DO NOW?
I have photographed numerous weddings over the years, so please take advantage of my experience and knowledge.
Q. IN WHICH AREAS CAN YOU PROVIDE OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
A. I primarily photograph weddings in two of the UK’s four capital cities: Cardiff and London and their surrounding areas, including Bristol…
But do get in touch if you are having your wedding elsewhere, as I may be able to accommodate!
I love to travel as it gets me out and about, seeing new areas and meeting new people.
Q. CAN WE MEET WITH YOU TO DISCUSS OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKING FACE TO FACE?
A. Yes, absolutely – I encourage this. As well as liking my photographic style, we must get on as people.
If you live near Cardiff or Caerphilly in South Wales, Bristol or London, arranging a meeting will be no problem. I like to make the process easy for couples and understand that people have busy lives.
So meeting in the evening or at weekends is fine with me.
Q. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
A. My style is reportage photography, which means I shoot in a documentary style and will not intrude or take over your day.
Many couples report that after a while, they forgot I was even there, but on viewing their photographs, they were delighted that I had captured all the wedding day action.
I edit in a mixture of vibrant colours and striking black and white as I think suits the photograph.
Q. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS?
A. I have photographed weddings for fifteen years and remain passionate about telling the day’s story from start to finish…
When a bride rings me gushing about having just seen my images of her day for the first time, it fills me with a deep feeling of warmth and satisfaction that cannot be beaten.
I cut my photographic teeth in London, a destination that speaks for itself. I have photographed close to 200 weddings in a wide variety of venues in the city.
I have photographed weddings at venues as small as the iconic Chelsea Old Town Hall to those more grand and historical, such as the Tower of London.
As I now work between London and South Wales, I cover an even wider variety of wedding venues.
Q. DO YOU COVER GAY/LGBT WEDDINGS?
A. Of course! Since gay marriage became legal in the UK, I love to document these too.
If you’re having a same-sex ceremony, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with me to discuss. There are gay wedding FAQs and much more information on my LGBTQ Wedding Photography page.
Q. WHAT OTHER TYPES OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU DO?
A. I photograph most things if they are people-related:
Children’s birthday party photography is popular these days. The way I shoot them is similar to weddings. They are a celebration, and I must capture the various key moments. It’s funny how similar a child blowing out birthday candles can be to a couple cutting the cake… Sort of!
Related to children’s birthdays is Baby Naming Ceremonies. Many people like to celebrate the birth of their little ones with a non-religious family occasion. A baby naming is a perfect way to do this, and I love documenting the event.
Another niche I have discovered is Online Dating Profile Photography. With our lives becoming ever more Internet-based, online dating is increasing in popularity. And with that, people require better photography for their profiles. So, I am happy to provide photos that meet the standards they need to attract their perfect match!
Choosing Your Wedding Photographer in Cardiff, London or Bristol.
Booking your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you’ll make regarding your day. It’s essential to get it exactly right!
It is one area where you’ll get what you pay for, so be sure to do your research…
Shortlist and choose wedding photographers whose style you like and that resonates well with you. If having your day professionally photographed is important, the budget should be secondary to this.
I have a short-day wedding photography plan to cater to those needing coverage of between 2 and 5 hours. Many couples having a register office ceremony with a small meal afterwards book me for two or three hours, and I’m happy to help them out.
