CARDIFF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SOUTH WALES
A MORE NATURAL APPROACH TO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Hello, my name is Sacha Miller and whilst I am based in Cardiff, South Wales I work with couples throughout the United Kingdom and overseas, capturing their special day with emotive photography.
My natural approach to photographing a wedding is to ensure that the bride and groom actually get time to enjoy their wedding day. It is not often you get all your friends and family together, and weddings days move pretty fast so I always advise it is best to squeeze out as much fun and laughter as possible. To enable this I work in an unobtrusive and discreet manner, avoiding intrusion to simply record what happens, to preserve genuine memories and communicate the joy experienced on the day you got married.
Whilst I specialise in documentary wedding photography, constantly searching for the naturally occurring “perfect moment” when emotion, light and form align, I appreciate that you may want a few formal groups shots of close family. These and any other posed pictures you may desire are at your discretion. As you can see through the real weddings I post on my blog below, most bride and grooms like a couple of portraits to utilise the surroundings.
Primarily my aim is to tell the story of your wedding, in an informal manner, using the understated elegance of reportage photography. To provide the most natural and stunningly beautiful images that perfectly capture the essence of your day.
Here you can browse through my wedding portfolio or read some further wedding photography information. Also why not take a look what former bride and groom’s have to say through these client comments.
“His photography highlights the intimate moments unseen by many, whilst exhibiting the balance of composition capable of only a true master.”
Elegant pictorial storytelling using beautiful, honest and emotive imagery
This blog of my photography showcases a selection of images that I have produced from recent commissions, in doing so I endeavour to demonstrate a consistency of quality, style and the affectional properties a picture essay possess when telling a heartwarming story.
