When bride and grooms search for weddings photographers in South Wales, they most likely come up with a plethora of choice. Where do they start? How do they choose? From my experience most of my clients come from word of mouth from previous clients. Though as a future bride and groom you are then relying on you friends sharing the same sense of aesthetics or vision for their wedding day. Sometimes this is not always the case, some friends want to spend more time posing for the camera than others. The one thing that all of my clients have in common is the wish to enjoy the day with their invited guests, building memories that are worth remembering. How is this done? Well, find a photographer who has the ability to blend in and shoot the wedding as though through the eyes of a guest. I appreciate though this is a huge leap of faith for bride and grooms, with photographers that pose or stage more, you can at least see what they are shooting. However with a more natural documentary approach you never know what you are going to get, but for me this is the boon of this photographic genre. However to go some way to curtail this fear of the unknown, I post a blog from my weddings, where I display a good selection of images captured during the day from each commission. Displaying that despite the majority of the images are unplanned and unposed I always provide an emotive visual record of the day. For me wedding photography is a lot more than one or two great shots but rather a pictorial storyboard that has the ability to present the whole spectrum of emotions. Along with good blog posts another way to judge if this photographer is right for you is to read some comments from previous clients. Here I have a page of client testimonials on my website. I also share below the text from a recent thank you card I received. Here you can see the original post concerning their Ash Barton wedding, also here you can other weddings at Ash Barton.
“Thank you so much for an incredible job with our wedding photography. From the start you were approachable and a true professional. Everything was very well organised and we felt we could trust you implicitly. On the day, everybody felt at ease in your company and you truly blended into the background, allowing you to take some beautifully natural photographs. We absolutely love our photos and will cherish them forever. They are a wonderful reminder of the best day of our lives. You are a very talented man! We’re so glad we found you.
Thanks again, Julia & Matt”
