Looking for a Bridgend Wedding Photographer?

You have likely posted on facebook with something along the lines of “Bridgend wedding photographer near me?” or “Recommendations for the best Bridgend wedding photographers?“. Before you know it you have 100+ comments and 10 unwanted private messages from photographers with links to their website.

Its confusing and overwhelming!

There are more things to consider when choosing your perfect wedding photographer than what you may think. Keep scrolling to see all of these important details broken down step-by-step.

Before you continue scrolling however, the most important factor to consider above everything else when choosing a photographer is their personality. Let’s face it, it’s going to be a long and awkward day if you don’t get on with the person capturing one of the most important stages of your life.

Thats why we offer complimentary meetings so that we can get to know each other and see if we are the right match for your special day.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to ask your Bridgend Wedding Photographer

Where are you based and do you travel?

We are based in a town in Bridgend, South Wales. We do travel and love discovering new venues and meeting new people. We do implement a £150 travel fee for weddings beyond a 60 mile radius so we can cover any overnight stays we may need.

who will be there on my wedding day

It depends on the scale of the wedding and events throughout the day. Oliver is the primary photographer for the day and will cover prep-first dance, he’s covered lots of weddings as a solo photographer and is more than capable of capturing every moment. For larger weddings, bigger venues or a fast-paced day, Lauren will likely assist on the day with lighting, bags, group shots and catching extra candid shots at speeches. You can add a second shooter if you feel you want to capture even more memories or both preps and we can advise you on this.

How long does a wedding photographer stay for?

All day! We arrive when you tell us to arrive and we leave when you tell us to leave. Luckily we can get Coronation Street on demand so there’s no need to rush off 😉

How many card slots do your cameras have?

All of our cameras have 2 card slots inside so that means your photos are constantly being backed up to a secondary card. To take that one step further, we perform backups throughout the day onto a hard drive to minimise any risks.

Should you feed your wedding photographer?

Yes please! Sometimes we can go 8-10 hours without food – it’s a little bit of a whirlwind of a day! We kindly ask that food is provided for our team (A maximum of 3 people if you have a second shooter). We don’t expect a three course meal at all, we just request some sandwiches or a bar meal and a soft drink/water to be made available to us so we don’t have to go off-site in search for food. We’ll take a food break when you and your guests sit down to eat and perform a photo back-up during that time. Oh and did we mention we love the evening buffet 😉

How long will it take for our wedding photos to be edited?

We aim to get all of your images back to you in a password protected online gallery within 5-8 weeks following your wedding day. However, we get very excited and can’t wait to edit a couple, so you will always have a sneak preview within 24 hours after your wedding.


We are indeed. You can request our documents should your venue ask to see them.

Can we meet you before the wedding day?

We always offer a free consultation before booking as it’s so important to make sure we’re the right match. We spend a lot of time with you on a high day in your life so you have to like us! We keep in touch on the lead up to your day and love a cuppa and a chat.

me and my partner are getting ready in different locations. CAN YOU COVER BOTH PREPS?

If you’re both getting ready at the same venue, yes. If you are in separate venues or want complete coverage of both preps we would advise investing in a second photographer.

How many photos will I get?

We deliver a minimum of 400 photos on a typical full day. The number of photos is dependent on so many elements – type of ceremony, number of guests, how much time you want to dedicate to couple photos, seasons and whether you have added a second shooter.
