When you begin searching for the person you will trust to capture the memories of your wedding day, you will see labels such as; vintage, photojournalist, alternative and fine art to describe various styles of photography. A good professional wedding photographer will adapt a selection from this palette of 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. Just as every wedding is different, every couple is different too, we aim to reflect your personalities as we tell the story of your day.

Be prepared…your preWedding Photoshoot

Yet more gorgeousness… An unusual, yet essential part of our wedding collections is the complimentary preWedding location photoshoot experience. This is FUN! Trust me. We usually meet at an outdoor location, a beach, an urban setting, a park, or even a mountain! Hensol Castle Wedding South Wales | Martin Phillips Studio | | South Wales Wedding Photographer Cardiff | Wedding Photography in Cardiff | Swansea Wedding Photographer South Wales | West Wales Wedding Photographers PembrokeshireWe’ll take some time getting to know one another, walking and taking some fun, relaxed, informal photos. This usually happens about a month or so before your wedding day and is an ideal time to tell us about your final plans. It also puts everyone at ease with the process of being photographed – so the wedding day experience is much more enjoyable.
