Wedding Photographer Cardiff, South Wales & UK
A MORE NATURAL APPROACH TO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Hello, my name is Sacha, I am full time professional wedding photographer based in Cardiff, South Wales, documenting marriages throughout the UK and worldwide destinations.
I specialise in candid, natural and emotive, award winning documentary wedding photography. My unobtrusive and laid back approach ensures that you actually get time to enjoy your day.
It is not often you get all your friends and family together, and weddings days move pretty fast so it is best to squeeze out as much fun and laughter as possible. Whilst you are enjoying yourselves I will produce a stunningly beautiful pictorial record with the understated, timeless elegance of reportage photography.
“No awkward poses, no cheesy grins, just honest, emotive, story telling imagery”
AWARD WINNING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER CARDIFF, SOUTH WALES
Whilst I specialise in a more natural and candid approach to wedding photography, I appreciate that you may want a few formal group shots of close family and friends. You may also require a couple of portraits of just the two of you to utilise the surroundings. I am more than happy to take these types of photographs and are totally at your discretion. With a little organisational assistance from your ushers or bridesmaids, the groups can usually be done in a few minutes.
Why not take a look at my wedding portfolio to see it if matches your aesthetic requirements. You can also read what previous bride and groom’s have to say about my work and service through these client reviews. Alternatively you can view some of my more recent work in my wedding journal. And if it looks like something that might suit you then please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your photographic requirements and check my availability.
I am fortunate enough to attract the nicest couples as clients, who have trusted me to document their wonderful wedding days. I do not take this trust lightly, so I constantly strive to justify this honour and produce the most beautiful pictorial record. Here are some kind words from my happy clients.
“Would 100% Recommend. Sacha was completely brilliant from the initial conversation through to the day itself. He was great at listening to what we wanted and we couldn’t have been happier with the results. The photos were phenomenal, capturing all of the days moments. We were able to completely relive the day looking though all the photos. Great with communication and so easy to deal with on the day. Absolutely fantastic service!”
“Sacha was fantastic! I was very specific in wanting to capture the narrative of the day and that I wanted atmosphere over posed photographs. I have a background in Fine Art and Sacha was the only wedding photographer I liked, so I was very happy that he was able to do our wedding. He even ran into the sea with us for some quirky shots in the wind and rain! He never complained despite getting soaked and the photos captured such a beautiful vibe of the day. I would highly recommend him. ”
“Sacha was great in the lead up the wedding; listening and understanding what we wanted from the day as well as working with us to accommodate the different locations of the bridal party and ensuring photos were taken in all. On the day you hardly knew Sacha was there but the photos showed he was everywhere!! He was so discreet but captured some wonderful moments throughout the day. We are so happy and proud of the photos.”

In December 2022, I photographed the winter wedding of Clare and Kieran at Sant Ffraed House in Monmouthshire, South Wales. At this time of year, the temperature and lack of daylight can keep the majority of a wedding day inside. This does worry some wedding photographers, who have a more posed...
