Made the day perfect and couldn't have asked for more

Highly delighted and pleased with everything. Made the day perfect and couldn't have asked for more. We thought the whole day was magical and it couldn't have been any better.

The best wedding photography

Steve and Amy made our wedding day so special because we have such beautiful photos to always look back on from the day. They somehow have this way of making you forget that the camera is on you whilst creating the most picture perfect photos. They captured the all the details from the parts you don’t get to see as the bride when the guests arrive and their excitement for the day, the bridal party prep in the room upstairs, the nervous groom at the end of the aisle. Every picture shares so much emotion that you can re live the day through them. The favourite part for me was our wedding album the quality and the attention to detail is just beautiful. I just can’t recommend them enough.

Absolutely brilliant

Steve and Amy are the absolute diamond duo. They kept me calm when I was feeling nervous, they managed to capture every detail of my day, and their working relationship with the videographer (We Are The Wild Weddings) just gelled so well! Would recommend to anybody!

The only photographer you'd ever want!

From the moment I got proposed to I knew the only person to capture our day would be Steve Cave! What was even better that we got Amy as well and there is no better duo then them two! We have known Steve for a very long time because he frequently attends events throughout Gloucestershire with his photo booth. No matter where I have met them, they are always the same great couple! They are the friendliest people you could ever meet! We had known Steve for a longer time than Amy, but we felt completely at ease around both of them. Amy has an amazing eye for detail, and her photographs of my jewellery and accessories are exceptional. She did a great job of capturing my grandmother's jewellery that i wore, it looked so beautiful! They are completely focused on you and your special day. Before our afternoon wedding, the couple had already visited our venue to shoot photos. Without being overly intrusive, they make you feel really unique. Steve even assisted my father-in-law in organising all of our guests for a drone photo that he desired to take.

Our wedding date moved twice due to COVID, but Steve and Amy still worked with us. Let's face it, if Steve and Amy couldn't make the date I provided them, I would find one they could, as nobody else was capturing our day! They really are the team you want at your wedding, nobody else beats them! Amy is that extra bridesmaid you want which automatically fits with you, they both would go the extra mile to get the best photos for you, nothing was too much trouble whatsoever.

Phenomenal, professional and personalised service

The service I received from captured by the Caves was phenomenal. As a bride I was really concerned about being centre of attention but Steve and team put both me and my husband at ease. He captures such magical natural moments throughout the day and he and his team blended in and became guests. As a father Steve is natural with babies and children and this extended to our fur babies! Steve listened to our vision but also utilised his expertise to get the best photos of the day! Upon receiving our photos I was blown away by the story the photos tell, it’s like I actually relive my day through the photos which is really special! Thanks Captured by the Caves for making our day extra special and giving us a lifetime of memories that we can share with our loved ones! I can’t recommend Steve and his team enough!

We are VERY happy customers!!

My husband & I can’t recommend Captured by the Caves enough!
A very professional service from start ‘til finish from husband & wife duo, Steve & Amy.
They gave us the upmost confidence from our first consultation that they would capture our big day perfectly. They not only done that, they went above & beyond with their attention to detail and continued it throughout the whole day.
If you’re after professionalism, quality & reliability, we’d highly recommend ‘Captured by the Caves’
We are VERY happy customers! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wedding photos

We had Steve for our wedding 7 years ago and he was brilliant. He took the time to find out exactly what we wanted and where we wanted pictures taken. We didn't want many formal shoots just wanted him to capture the day and he did this brilliantly. Steve didn't feel like a photographer pressuring you and your guests for photos he felt like one of the quests resulting in so some amazing relaxed photos. We had a beautiful album as well that we still display as it is so pretty.

Best Around 👌


Steve took our wedding photos back in 2016! He got the most beautiful candid photos of everyone enjoying our special day. He made the guests feel comfortable and did a very professional job. Steve had great ideas of how to get the most out of our venue and surroundings so they really stood out. Magical day captured on camera. Best wedding photographer around!

5 Star Excellent!!

I couldn’t recommend Cave photography enough.

For our Wedding Day Steve and Amy were very professional, captured every moment from start to finish and you hardly knew they were there, just got on with the job.

You fully understood exactly what we were looking for and we would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a high quality photographer for any occasion. Thank you again, Chris and Jess.

A fantastic photographer

Steve is really good at what he does. He made us feel at ease and made the more staged shots feel natural and easy going. We had a great time working with Steve!

Some of our photos actually made it into Your Glos & Wilts Wedding Magazine!

Simply Amazing!

Steve was absolutely amazing, professional, patient and kind.

We got married during covid restrictions and were worried about the photos and making sure everyone felt comfortable. He was so understanding, included everyone and put everyone at ease.

His experience has given us some amazing photos to cherish forever. Excellent value for money, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.
