Award Winning Wedding Photographer

Hello, I’m Edmund Shum, a wedding photographer based in Llanelli, South Wales.

I would not be here without the love and support of my family. Pursuing my passion has been one of the best things that has happened to me in life, and I feel honoured to be able to follow my heart with photography. Photography allows me to express my creativity and truly capture a story whilst displaying emotion in a single frame. I would love to create a work of art from your wedding day.

Now in my eighth year, and with many training courses attended and even more weddings documented, together with my exceptional customer service and vision, I look forward to being part of your day.

Take time to enjoy my portfolio and reading my blog on the latest news.

Some of my work published in the South Wales Evening Post! Along with Llanelli Star, Wales Online, DailyMail Online, Baby Center and have also been featured in That’s Life and Woman magazine.

I have also had the privilege to have my work used by Sky, Channel 4 and Domino’s Pizza. And also worked alongside a fellow photographer on a BBC Series as a lighting technician.

In 2018, I was the Official Photographer for Miss Europe Continental Wales Region.

Creator of quality images and thinker of fresh ideas

OK… so that’s the formal introduction done. Here’s what I REALLY want to say! I’m easy going and fun to get along with, I’ll crack the worse jokes, that you’ll laugh at me, and not at the punchline! I’m usually discreet around ceremony and candid photos, and loud when forming group photos. I get insanely excited when I take a great photo, and will run to you like a child to show you the back of the camera! I love to dance, so if there’s a rockin’ beat on the dance floor, I will definitely be up there with my camera, I can be formal, but I would prefer a hug over a handshake!!

I’ve travelled the world on my own when I was younger, I’ve visited many different countries, and when planning holidays, I have to make sure it’s somewhere I’ve not been before, I love learning about new cultures and how others live life around the world. Being an overseas wedding photographer suits me ideally!

Edmund was fantastic from start to finish. We have had so many compliment on our wedding photos looking like they are straight out of a magazine shoot. He captured so many moments beautifully my favourite had to be a picture of my gram and gramps dancing towards the end of our first dance. Finding a good photographer was the one part of our wedding that I was the funniest about and I am so glad we came across photography first. From the natural photos, to the more formal ones indoor or outdoor Ed knows how to work all lighting and space to produce the most beautiful photos. Thank you Ed for capturing our day so perfectly.

I had my mum in law pass on a review for Ed's service at Gellifawr on the 3.10.19, but I want to follow it up after receiving all our photos back how fantastic they have turned out, everyone is absolutely thrilled with the outcome and the hard work that has been put in them, we can't thank Ed enough for his passion and commitment to his role and we will always remember the fantastic service he provided for everyone on my wedding day.

Ed is a wonderful photographer who finds a way to get the best shots you can imagine while also being unobtrusive. No request was too much for him and he was willing to do whatever was necessary to get some wonderful photos. I would strongly recommend his work, great quality and a reasonable price!

Silke and BenAshburnham Hotel Wedding

I'm being 100% honest when I say 'do not look any further than photography first' Ed is not only a fantastic photographer, he is very professional and brings life to your wedding day. His images are Sharpe, current and capture the real moments. Ed brings fun to your wedding day and still now our guests talk about him. After meeting a few photographers and not feeling completely comfortable, we finally met Ed, he not only made us feel completely relaxed and normal but he completely understood what we wanted and in my opinion you can't ask for more than that.100% recommend.
