Jess and Shane Engagement Shoot

Llanelli, South Wales

Whilst Jess and Shane popped over for their wedding consultation, I had recently bought a new softbox, a flash modifier for one of my portable lights.  So what better reason that to test it out on this wonderful couple!  They’re getting married in six months time, I can’t wait to shoot their wedding, they’re so laid back and easy to get on with, it’s going to be a fab day!

Stradey Park Hotel | Charlotte and Giuliano – Llanelli, South Wales

It’s always such an honour to be asked to cover a couples wedding day, and this Stradey Park Hotel wedding is no different 🙂  I had a fantastic time with Charlotte and Giuliano at this fantastic Llanelli Wedding Venue!  Not only was this venue on my door step, but the whole wedding was in Stradey Park Hotel, which meant I could go back and forth and photograph the groom before the wedding ceremony too – bonus!

South Wales Wedding Photographer | Photography First

Location | Llanelli Beach, South Wales

Couple | Karl & Amy


For April, it was an amazing sunset, and I had all the intention of going out to the beach on my own to capture the glorious sunset over Llanelli beach, South Wales.  But that would be no fun, I wanted to shoot people!  Karl and Amy are good friends of mine, who got engaged recently, we bought them a frame with all the intentions of getting their portraits for them to frame…

So this was perfect, I wanted to shoot people with the sun setting, and they were free.. just!  Thanks Amy, for leaving your workplace in Cardiff and some straight over 😀

Ooo it doesn’t show, but it was cold and apparently it was the windiest day in a while!!  So all the shoot was done in the space of 10 minutes or so, here’s just a couple of shots to tease you!

Bethan & Rob’s Llanharry Wedding

By | Wedding Venues

I had the pleasure to at as Cardiff wedding photographer to drive all the way to Llanharry, near Cardiff for this Llanelli wedding photographer! I love to travel, and the sunshine made it even better, had some beautiful pictures of the lovely bride preparing for her wedding, then it was off to Llanharry Church to get some shots with the groom.  All of the sudden, it started raining, oh no! Many thanks to the Vicar for lending me his brolly 😀 I had a nice floral one hehe.. but it kept me and my camera dry 🙂 Since then I’ve bought a nice plain black brolly, and I’ve not had the chance to use it… lets hope I never will!
