Hi, I’m Guy and I’m a Wedding Photographer covering the whole of the UK!
I shoot from the guests’ perspective…
I love the photograph above. It’s what I love to shoot and is emotive and full of emotion… This is 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 FAQ’s
Q. WE LIKE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY AND ARE READY TO BOOK OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER. WHAT DO WE DO NOW?
A. Please get in touch! You can fill out the form above, email me directly or give me a ring! I’d love to hear all about your wedding day plans and help out where I can. I have photographed numerous weddings over the years, so please do take advantage of my experience and knowledge.
Q. WHICH AREAS DO YOU COVER? WILL YOU TRAVEL FAR?
A. I primarily photograph weddings in two of the UK’s four capital cities: Cardiff and London and their surrounding areas… But do get in touch if you are having your wedding elsewhere, as I may be able to accommodate! I don’t charge for travel within South Wales or in the London area, but other locations will vary.
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, it is important that we get on as people. If you live near Cardiff or Caerphilly in South Wales, or London, then arranging a meeting will be no problem. I like to make the process as easy as possible 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. In fact many couples report that after a while they forgot I was even there but were overjoyed to see that I had captured all the wedding day action on viewing their photographs afterwards. I edit in a mixture of vibrant colour 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 ten years now, and remain passionate about telling the story of the day 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 and have photographed close to 200 weddings in a huge variety of venues. I have photographed at venues as small but iconic as Chelsea Old Town Hall to those that are more grand and historic such as the Tower of London. As I now work between London and South Wales, I cover an even bigger 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 please contact me to discuss. There are gay wedding FAQ’s and much more information on my Gay Wedding Photography page.
Q. WHAT OTHER TYPES OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU DO?
A. I photograph most things if they are people based:
Children’s birthday party photography is popular these days. The way I shoot them isn’t far removed from weddings. They are a celebration and various key moments must be captured. It’s funny how similar a child blowing out birthday candles can be to a couple cutting the cake… Sort of!
Kind of related to children’s birthdays are Baby Naming Ceremonies. A lot of people like to celebrate the birth of their little ones with a non-religious family occasion. A baby naming is the perfect way to do this and I love to document the occasion.
Another niche I have discovered is Online Dating Profile Photography. With our lives becoming ever more Internet based, on-line dating is increasing in popularity. And with that people are requiring better photography for their profiles. So I am happy to provide the photos to the standard they require to attract their perfect match!
Choosing Your Wedding Photographer in Cardiff and London.
This is one of the most important decisions you’ll make regarding your day. It’s important 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 in Cardiff whose style you like and that resonate well with you. If having your day professionally documented is important to you, budget should be secondary to this.
I have a short day wedding photography plan to cater for those needing coverage of between 2 and 5 hours. A lot of 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.
