Emotive, Fun and Creative Wedding Photography

I am based in South Wales but travel all over the UK. It’s always great to cover weddings at all types of venues across the country as it keeps my photography fresh. The quirky the venue the better. I offer relaxed and natural wedding photography. This means I let you enjoy the day without me taking too much time away from your guests.

I like to capture the interaction between the newlyweds in the most unobtrusive way. Your day will be photographed in a way that that you didn’t even realise I was there. I will make sure there is time for you to chat to your guests, have a quiet moment to yourselves, have fun with creative portraits and most of all enjoy the party.

I meet with all my couples to discuss what style of photography they like and what they don’t like. Lets face it not many people like having their picture taken. So I make sure all my couples are relaxed in front of the camera with a few jokes thrown in here and there. You have to feel relaxed with your photographer, if you do they will capture those intimate and funny moments in the most natural way.

My Style is Creative, Fun and Emotive Wedding Photography – Most couples who book with me say they chose my work over everybody else’s because of the unposed natural and relaxed style of my wedding pictures.

How would you describe your style?

Creative, Fun and Emotive Wedding Photography - Most couples who book with me say they chose my work over everybody else's because of the unposed natural and relaxed style of my photos. I don't do many stylised photographs that look they are from a magazine because it doesn't portray the personality and emotions of the couples in the pictures.

I like to capture the day as it happens with a little direction from myself to get that perfect shot. I like to capture the interaction between the newly weds in the most unobtrusive way. I want to capture the smiles, laughter and tears.

What do you love about weddings?

Steve is an incredibly talented, passionate photographer which can be seen in all of his photos.

Steve is an incredibly talented, passionate photographer which can be seen in all of his photos. He has a way of capturing those raw emotions and moments that are truly breath taking. He seems to be able to take photos of everything and everyone without ever being rushed or in the way. When it came to our couple photos, he made us feel calm and relaxed and made it a time where we could run away and just be ourselves. No staged photos! We could just be with each other, laughing and smiling on the happiest day of our lives. We have received so many glowing compliments about the photos, he’s made it so difficult to choose which ones to put on the wall!

He is really professional, on time and ready to go. We couldn't recommend him highly enough!! Thank you so much, Lauren and Ali

Steve was just the most incredible wedding photographer! He took the most wonderful photos of two people who really aren’t good at getting their photo taken. Steve was so friendly and slotted right into our day. The photos came out better than we could have ever imagine and we will cherish them for our lifetime. The communication with Steve was great, especially in terms of putting our minds at rest regarding COVID (and the Welsh weather)! We could not recommend him enough. Thank you so much for everything Steve.

We genuinely can’t recommend Steve highly enough. If you want a stress free fun day that flows with virtually no interruptions, and what minimal “allocated” photo time there was,was made fun and relaxed …easy…totally enjoyable then Steve is the photographer for you .The reality is you won’t even know he’s there capturing those priceless special moments.
His powers of observation and skilled eye for detail means he catches with his lense not JUST a photo but a split second in time which will bring flooding back all the fantastic atmosphere and emotions of that moment ….but not just for a one off …every photo has been captured as he’s blended in with your guests and observed your special day unfold preserving the finer details, the glances, smiles, tears, belly laughs touching of a face, embraces …..just all the tiny jigsaw pieces that make up your totally unique Day / night.
When I first met Steve he said he strives to ” tell the story of your Day ” ….if I’m totally honest I didn’t fully “get it” but I instantly liked his enthusiasm. Then we saw our wedding photos and NOW I totally 100% “get it ” ….Steve told our story ! And what I think is testament to his talent is if you look through his wedding story each is completely unique and individual …Not a one size fits all ….Steve is a skilled taylor of a photographer. Steve we are so glad we found YOU.

Absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos and can’t recommend Steve highly enough!
We chose Steve as our photographer because we loved his relaxed, natural style and the sense of fun in his photos. His images of our wedding did not disappoint – he really captured the atmosphere of the day!
Steve was a pleasure to have around – he’s friendly and down to earth, going above and beyond to help out (even doing the boys ties!) before disappearing into the background to capture all those special moments!
Thank you so much Steve!
