A More Natural Approach to Wedding Photography
Hello, my name is Sacha. I am a Cardiff wedding photographer and a South Wales wedding photographer available throughout the UK to capture your special day with beautiful wedding photography. My award winning relaxed and natural approach ensures 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 it is best to squeeze out as much fun and laughter as possible. To enable this, I work in a documentary style with an unobtrusive and discreet manner, avoiding intrusion to provide an emotive and timeless pictorial record. 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. These type of photographs are totally at your discretion and can usually be done in a few minutes. Primarily my aim is to tell the story of your wedding day, in an informal manner with the understated elegance of reportage photography. I will deliver to you the most natural and stunningly beautiful images the perfectly capture the essence of your day. You can see samples of my work at South Wales wedding venues and further afield through my journal and portfolio. Also I would thoroughly recommend you take a look at what former bride and groom’s have to say about my wedding photography service through these client reviews.
“Sacha was a pleasure to work with before and during the wedding. It was important to us to capture the day as it was, and he did just that, blending into the background like a true stealth photographer.”
“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.”
Joanna & Bryson
“Sacha was absolutely fantastic. We were looking for a photographer that took natural photographs that gave a true representation of our day. From the first communication with Sacha he was incredibly helpful and professional and understood exactly what we wanted. He was a true gentleman and everyone felt very relaxed in his company. He has a knack of blending in to the background which allowed him to take beautifully natural photographs. We will cherish our photos forever and will be always grateful ”
Julie & Matthew
“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!”
Isabel & Hugo
“We chose Sacha for our wedding photography because his website portfolio showcased his ability to capture natural moments from the day. From the moment of our enquiry we found Sacha to be excellent; very clear and quick communication over email, very approachable. On the day, Sacha was wonderful; a true gentleman who was a calming influence. Sacha created a beautiful slideshow set to music for us, and within a very quick timeframe gave us access to hundreds of amazing photos online.”
Alice & James
“We were truly so grateful to have you as our photographer on the day. The photos are absolutely beautiful and exactly the photos we wanted. You’ve captured the joy, love and fun that we experienced during the day so perfectly, and looking at our photos enables us to relive our whole day again. A huge thing for me was that you made us feel so comfortable and at ease with having our photo taken. I’m often especially conscious of having my photo taken and I had been worried I wouldn’t be able to relax. But I hardly noticed you taking the photos, and yet you still managed to capture me throughout the day.”
Sian & Lewis
“His photography highlights the intimate moments unseen by many, whilst exhibiting the balance of composition capable of only a true master.”
AWARD WINNING CARDIFF & SOUTH WALES WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
As a Cardiff and South Wales wedding photographer I have extensive experience in photographing many different types of weddings. One thing they all have in common is the desire of the happy couple to ‘enjoy the day’. Whilst they do require good photography, they want to avoid turning the day into a photoshoot. The paramount desire is to spend as much time as possible with close family and friends to make the memories that are worth capturing. This approach is sometime known as wedding photojournalism, reportage or documentary. You can read more information on this subject through this article on documentary wedding photography. As a medium, photography has yet to be surpassed in its ability to freeze a scene. Transporting you back to that moment in time when viewing the image in years to come. It is this timeless element that I endeavour to incorporate in my approach to wedding photography. My advice to anyone getting married, is to relax and enjoy yourself on the day, chat and laugh with wedding guests and the photography will take care of itself. If this sounds like it might suit you and you would like to discuss your photography requirements any further, or just wish to check on my availability and prices, then please do contact me.
