YOUR DAY, EVERY DETAIL
Documentary Style Wedding Photography
Thank you for visiting my wedding photography page, if you are enquiring about 'documentary style' wedding photography for yourselves; congratulations! I hope you enjoy this image gallery from my most recent weddings.
For availability and to arrange a pre-wedding day consultation (coffee) please contact me via phone or fill in the form below, and I will contact you within 24hrs.
My name is Gareth, I am a passionate friendly and relaxed professional photographer. I'm very much a people person, and I love the energy and excitement of a wedding day! I thrive on meeting new people and looking for those special details while ensuring you are all relaxed having fun and looking your best in your photographs. No fake smiles, Guaranteed!
I've been a professional photographer for nearly 20 years and have had the pleasure of working with many couples, young and old, capturing their wedding day all over the UK and abroad.
I offer a very modern style of wedding photography, capturing the fun and excitement of the day, with minimal interference, disruption and manipulation. I find most people would rather be photographed enjoying their day with their friends and family, more so than being told to smile all the time. - I know I would... I do my best so that most of the time you hardly know I'm there, no one like a camera in their face all day!
Based in sunny South Wales, and covering the whole of the UK and even abroad on a few occasions, no wedding is too far!
I am always up for a coffee, so feel free to book an informal chat and we can talk about your big day! If you are enquiring from abroad we can Skype chat at your convenience.
YOUR WEDDING DAY:
Each wedding is unique! I adore the details that each couple selects to be an important part of their day and look to capture each and every aspect of the day from creative family shots to the intimate decorative details.
While I feel it's important to capture the day in every detail, including the important group shots, I feel the best way to capture a wedding is at its most natural. This means being an observer more so than a conductor! I feel my style of 'documentary 'wedding photography offers the perfect balance of candid un-structured photography, with the invaluable group pics that all family members will cherish forever.
I provide a list of possible group shots for you to amend and return prior to the wedding day, ensuring all the important photographs are taken*.

Wedding Photography Terms & Conditions
All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer/s will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibers. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye. For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues, the photographer's movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer's choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.
All images will be adjusted for exposure, brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc The Photographer's judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to the Client for preview shall be deemed correct. Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an option at extra cost.
Prints / Reorders.
All prints and reorders shall be treated as an extension of this contract and no responsibility for error will be accepted unless orders are given in writing.
The copyright Designs and Patents Acts assign the copyright of the images to the photographer. Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise and any computer program including any source or object code, computer files or printed documentation relating to such images are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988. It is contrary to the Act to copy or allow to be copied photographically/electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without the permission of The Photographer/s in writing.
*A list of must have shots is provided for your convenience, While i do my very best to capture each and every aspect of a wedding day, i advise clients that it is not always possible to capture everything. Due to the variables of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.
**All images are supplied in JPG form and will receive basic colour correction which includes exposure adjustment, contrast, colour and straightening and sharpening as standard, additional editing is available on a chargeable pro-rata basis. This is worked out based on the number of images requiring editing.
***I guarantee a minimum of 500 images from the many photographs taken on the day. I do not offer all of the photographs taken on the day, doing this would create more editing and potentially lower the over all quality of the images provided. My camera takes 6 photographs per second to ensure a good image is captured, the best of which is selected and supplied in your collection.
