Steve was the most incredible photographer.
Steve was the most incredible photographer we could have asked for. Before we got married we had attended a few weddings which felt more like a photo shoot than a wedding itself and we could not believe the time people gave up in their day to set up long, staged photos of their big day rather than enjoying the day itself with their guests! So when we got engaged we were certain we did not want this - we wanted 'straightforward, no fuss wedding photography'. And true to what Steve claims on his website - this is what he delivered. As a couple who are not naturally drawn to being the centre of attention or taking lots of photos, we were a bit worried about the photos. Steve encouraged us to have a pre-wedding photo shoot to get used to the awkwardness before the big day and also plan out where we want our photos taken. Spending time with Steve doing this was like being with a friend we had known for ages - he put us at ease and really took the time to listen to what we wanted and how we were planning our big day. On the day, Steve stuck to exactly what he said. All of our friends and family commented on how lovely he was and how easy it was having him around throughout the day (some of them hoping to use Steve for their weddings as well one day, if he'll venture into England!). We took the photos we wanted, when we wanted and yet Steve also used his professional judgement to make these photos work so well (despite the Welsh-weather not making this easy). Our day was not 'traditional;' but this did not phase Steve one bit and he was on board with all of our requests - including the 40 minute walk through forestry with all our guests, driving up a hill in a land rover, capturing a surprise twist in our speech and staying until late into the night to get some snap shots of the dance floor. When the photos arrived a month or so after the wedding we were absolutely blown away. We looked through the 700 photos so many times and every time noticed another moment he had managed to capture. We kept saying 'I didn't even know Steve was there taking that photo'. And that was the beauty - we have some incredible photos to remember our incredible day and these photos never took away from us enjoying it. We cannot recommend Steve enough as your wedding photographer - do it, you will definitely not regret it!

What a talent!
We can not recommend Steven enough... what a talent! From our first meeting to discuss the wedding we were confident that Steven understood exactly what we wanted. The engagement shoot was a great opportunity to get a feel for how things might work on the day and we were instantly put at ease. My family has known Steven a long time so it was extra special to have him as our photographer and thankfully he wasn't remotely fazed by the chaos of my large family getting ready on the morning of the wedding. In fact, he got some amazing candid photos which really captured those moments beautifully. We couldn't be happier with our photos, each one has clearly been so well thought out with amazing attention to detail and artistic flare.

Don't hesitate, just book him
We would reccomend Steven again and again. His work is perfection and he captures every little detail so you can relive your big day all over again. He went above and beyond and honestly couldn't have done enough for us. He made us feel totally at ease on our engagement shoot and on our big day. Even if he did get a bit of an eyefull 😂 We never even noticed him there he captures every moment worth capturing. Thank you so much Steve. If you're thinking of having Steven do your wedding photography don't hesitate just book him and you won't regret it. They say you get what you pay for but we got way more than that. If I could give more than 5 stars I so would!

The results are fantastic
Steve was really great to deal with from our first meeting, the engagement shoot and the wedding day itself. He really got to grips with what it was we wanted from him, and he soon put us at ease in front of the camera. The Wedding day itself was a very long day for Steve but he had a smile on his face the whole day. Nothing was any trouble for him and the results are fantastic. We look forward to getting an album done with him very soon. Thank you again Steve

Totally professional with outstanding results
Don’t know how to praise Steven enough as a person or as a photographer, he photographed our wedding in August and from the moment we met him we knew he would smash it. From setting us at ease with him to at ease with the camera, totally professional with outstanding results, we couldn’t recommend him higher. He put in an awful lot of hours and results stand for themselves. If you can get him for your big event or day don’t hesitate to book him, you will not be disappointed.
