About Simon Gough Photography

Simon is an experienced Cardiff based wedding photographer. With a passion for weddings and a friendly and professional manner, it’s no surprise he’s been praised by hundreds of couples throughout his career. 

What Simon says about his style and appraoch....

On your day I do love photographing your dress, your shoes and all the beautiful stuff.  The biggest fun for me though is spending the day with smiling, happy people. Laughter is great. It makes for brilliant photographs.

I am relaxed and informal and work as quickly as possible so you can get on with the fun bits.  I think marriage itself  is very serious and important but all the rest you can have a lot of fun with. If you do I promise you'll get wedding images that you will love.

I promise to work hard on your wedding day (and wear a suit!) to provide photographs you’ll love and treasure forever. I also like to keep things simple when it comes to money.

For £1,350, I will stay with you from the moment you get dressed to the moment you hit the dancefloor. I will begin wherever your day does, so that all your preparations are caught on camera. I’ll then head over to the church or venue to take a few shots of those before you arrive. 

In addition, £1,350 gets you at least 550 edited images on a USB stick in a wooden presentation box. These images can be printed, emailed, posted on social media or printed on a mug… the options are endless! You’ll also get a private online gallery to view all of your wedding photos from anywhere you are. 

If you want something a little different, that can be arranged too. Packages start at £975, and add-on options are plentiful. I offer engagement shoots, wedding albums and I can even bring a second photographer along with me on the day if you fancy. If you’d like more information or a quote, I’d love to hear from you, so do not hesitate to get in touch.

    Simon did a truly phenomenal job capturing our wedding! He is a fantastic person and a brilliant photographer! We have so many beautiful and vivid photos to choose from for our wedding album because he is wicked good at what he does! We felt immediately at ease with him within 5 minutes of our initial consultation and knew that our guests would love him too! He was so helpful with getting people together for photos and made the entire day stress-free and full of laughter! If you are looking for a photographer for a wedding – Book Simon!

  • "Natalie and Ed"
    This testimonial was entered by Simon Gough Photography on 13 January 2020

    We both wanted to say a HUGE ‘Thank you’ for our amazing pictures!! I knew from when I saw Lauren’s pictures (Natalies cousin) that you would capture our day perfectly. We weren’t able to meet you until much nearer the wedding but following our phone call I knew that I wouldn’t want to drop out of the booking On the morning and throughout the day you moved around and captured so many photos without being noticed. I have been to too many wedding with bossy photographers and I am glad to say you are not one. The general feel of our photos is us and our guests happy, fun and relaxed. So many people have commented on our pictures and noted that we were only away from our guests for half hour and in that time you captured the most beautiful photos of a not very poser-y couple. The guests felt at ease with you which shows. We are about to go on our honeymoon but we will definitely be in touch to order an album that the photos deserve – Choosing 100 will be very difficult!!! Our only regret is that we didn’t get a selfie or photo of us with you I love photos and can’t thank you enough for capturing the story of our day so accurately as that, along with our memories, is ultimately what we are left with of our day

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

Our full day package is £1350.00 but if you want something different then just get in touch but most couples stick with the main pricing structure.

What services do you offer?

We offer wedding photography - thats me in a suit with my cameras taking photos whilst the fun happens. I will blend in at times but also chat to your guests at others. I am part of the day and I like to laugh with your guests. That way you get better photos!

What does the wedding package include?

I will be with you from Bridal prep to first dance (if thats what you want) on the day and afterwards you get a beautifully packaged USB stick with the images on as well as some printed photos. There is also an online gallery for yoiur friends and family to see them.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Get in tuch when you have a venue - there is no time limits and I can take bookings 3 years ahead as well as in 10 days time. If I am available then I am available!

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No. This is not the 1970s!!

Are you able to travel?

I travel around Wales and Goucestershire, Somerset, Dorset and Devon. I have a young family and my aim whilst they want to spend time with me is to do just that!

What is the charge for travelling?

I only charge mileage / overnight stay if the wedding is more that 90 minutes from Cardiff. I will keep this to a minimum and we can talk this through in advance.

What style of photos do you take?

My style is relaxed, fun and informal. The photos will reflect that as well as the times when your Mum wants those family shots. I am not a documentary photographer - although many shots will look that way. I believe you need a good mix of photos in your album to create interest and texture. But I love mainly taking photos of people laughing!

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use cameras that have lenses on! A mix of Sony, Canon and sigma if you really must know.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

I have an online gallery that show off your photos to friends and family - they can purchase jpegs and prints if they want but most people just use it for viewing.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

If you dont have your photos back within 3 weeks maximum then I would be amazed. Obviously there are exceptions but they are ... exceptional!

Do you send all the photos taken?

No ... I will look through your photos 3 times and edit thyem so you have the best selection of 600 + photos.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

I charge per wedding and the block of time. i.e Bridal prep to first dance and how many hours that takes.

What are the forms of payment?

You can pay by card, cheque or B.A.C.S

Where can I find more information?

I have a very detailed FAQs on my website and the site is full of lots of information about who I am, how I shoot and lots of other useful things that are worth looking at.
