Miskin Manor Wedding Photographer South Wales
How we do it...our style

Gorgeousness Guaranteed!
South Wales Wedding Photographer Carreg Cennen CastleWe have a strong style, developed from many years experience of photographing people professionally. It is influenced by our life experiences too, from our interests in everything from music, travel, the arts and nature. We hope that you find a connection with our style of photography, and that photography is important to you, we are not copycat photographers. We strive to produce something valuable, creative and unique for every client. If you appreciate great imagery then be prepared and excited to be part of that process.

Let’s Work Together
Ewenny Priory Wedding Photographer South Wales Your wedding is important. To you, to ourselves, to your family and friends. Julie and I shoot every wedding together, we blend in – often mistaken for just another family member or guest. We want to create a set of beautiful photos that tell the story of your wedding day. We have a distinct style that combines artistic portraiture with documentary style shooting that will capture intimate moments and tiny details. We would love to meet you, chat about your wedding day plans and get to know each other a little better. Start with sending a request on our contact form at the bottom of the page.

Don’t Get Caught Up In The Jargon
West Wales Wedding Photographer PembrokeshireWhen you begin searching for the person you will trust to capture the memories of your your wedding day, you will see labels such as; vintage, photojournalist, alternative and fine art to describe various styles of photography. In our experience, a good professional wedding photographer will adapt a variety of these styles. Your wedding day will be a wonderful journey through a range of emotions, events and settings and we will be there to capture gorgeous images throughout; adapting to the theme, colour palette and moods of your wedding day. Just as every wedding is different, every couple is different too, we aim to reflect your personalities in our coverage of your day. Choose a wedding photographer you connect with, meet with them and trust them to allow you to enjoy your wedding day – no labels or jargon required!

Be prepared…getting to know you

Yet more gorgeousness… Oxwich Bay Wedding Photographer Gower

An unusual, yet essential part of all our wedding packages is the complimentary pre wedding photoshoot experience. This is FUN! Trust me. We usually meet at an outdoor location, a beach, an urban setting, a park, on a mountain, etc. We take some time getting to know one another whilst taking some relaxed, informal photos. This usually happens about a month before your wedding day and is an ideal time to chat about your final plans. It also puts everyone more at ease with the idea of being photographed – so the wedding day experience can be more enjoyable. Everyone loves their pre wedding shoot and the photographs too! You will get the opportunity to choose your favourite image for us to print and mount, we then bring it along to your venue where you can ask your guests to sign it as a memento. Your 10 favourites are included with your album package, but for those of you on a digital package you will have the opportunity to buy the collection on a USB flash drive.

How much will it cost?

I don’t even know where to start. I have always known what a fabulous photographer Martin was, but it was just as important to have a photographer that I connected well with, who I felt comfortable sharing our special day with. After all, we could only invite 40 people, but having Martin and Julie as our photographers was like having an extra two family members. We got married in a very secluded setting in the Andalucian mountains. The day before the wedding Martin was exploring the area for perfect photo locations and taking test shots…

We just wanted to say thank you for the amazing job you did on our special day. We couldn’t have asked for a more lovely and helpful couple to capture the day. We are so glad we found you and are delighted with the wedding photos, and the pre-wedding shoot too. You put us at ease straight away and made something which normally makes us nervous, lots of fun! You really are a fantastic couple and are perfectly suited to working with couples about to get married! We loved hearing your stories and look forward to being as happy as you clearly are.

We both wanted to say thank you so much for our amazing pictures! We’re so happy to have such a lovely record of our day and of course of all the little details and things that we missed in the haze. The scenery looks absolutely stunning, and your pictures really do show a fabulous eye for moody skies, the beautiful hills and mountains of the Beacons! Thank you too for being so unobtrusive and working round a bride who was getting rather tense before the ceremony, as the minutes just seemed to tick by faster and faster…
