About

Absolutely amazing!

In love with the photos, Carl took for us on our big day (02/07/22). We booked Carl back in 2019 before covid hit and unfortunately had to postpone our day twice. We finally had our special day third time lucky and he did not disappoint us. Carl made us feel so relaxed and calm from start to finish including how he dealt with the postponed dates. He was always so accommodating and understanding. The whole day run so smoothly and Carl even turned into a chief bridesmaid for me making sure my dress and veil were all in place! He made us laugh and ensured the photos were so natural and the shoots were so easy. He took time to get the shots but he always made sure we could still enjoy our day with all our guests. We鈥檝e had our photos back already, which is super quick, and we love them. He really did capture our special day so perfectly and got shots that we may have missed ourselves on the day so it was lovely to look back on. All the photos are beautiful. If anyone is looking for a photographer to capture their special day or any other event then we highly recommend Carl. His work is incredible. 5 star with myself and my new husband. All of our families and guests said how lovely and friendly Carl was too! 猸愶笍 Thank you again Carl

A professional and outstanding photographer

We recently had Carl as our photographer for our special day..from the minute we contacted him he was so professional. From the moment Carl arrived, he was incredibly kind, patient and understanding. He knew how important the photographs were to us and so from the moment he arrived to the moment he finished, he captured every special moment we had hoped for. He understood that some people were quite camera shy and completely put them at ease whilst blending into our special day. He worked very hard in making sure everyone felt included. He captured moments that we can forever look back on and cherish. Our special day was made all the more special by having Carl there. It was a gift to have had him with us.

A memorable pre wedding shoot experience!

We had so much fun having our pre-wedding photo shoot with Carl! He makes you feel at ease and he is just the best at what he does! The photos we have seen so far have turned out amazing! We cannot wait to see how the wedding day photos turn out! If you haven't booked your photographer yet... look no further! 馃枻

Amazing photographer

From start to finish Carl was extremely professional but friendly. He blended in so well and made everyone feel comfortable. He captured emotions and moments that will be the most important to us. We were Carl's first same sex wedding, He went to a great deal of trouble to make sure he was prepared. I would not hesitate to recommend Carl to anyone, in my opinion there is no better photographer in South Wales.

I'd like to thank Carl massively for capturing our big day he was fantastic to work with and amazing at what he does with the camera. Captured our memories perfectly and would have him again to do other occasions/events we do in the future. Someone now we class as a friend! Had such a laugh and he will do everything youve asked him to do and how you want it
All in all he is an amazing person and outstanding to what he does
*Highly recommended*
Can't thank you enough xx

Wedding day 29.08.22

Where do I start!? We booked Carl as our wedding photographer after seeing him in action at my sisters Wedding last year and we were not disappointed! From start to finish, Carl has been so friendly, approachable and professional. His communication is great and he was always there to answer any questions we had leading up to the big day. Just like his advert says, he is a relaxed wedding photographer who is there to capture all the small and big moments and makes you feel so comfortable - he really was an absolute joy to work with. To be honest he feels more like a friend/wedding guest now than a photographer! He made the wedding day just run so smoothly and we had so much fun taking both classic and some artistic photos! Carl just brings such a great energy to the day yet doesn鈥檛 eat into your time with your own guests. He came early and stayed to the bitter end and for that we couldn鈥檛 be more grateful. And to top it all off his work is absolutely incredible, we were just blown away by the few pictures he shared with us so far and we can鈥檛 wait to see the rest.

I would recommend Carl to anyone! Is is a lovely person and an amazing photographer.

Thank you for everything x

Amazing Pre Wedding Photo Shoot!

Carl met us at a beach in Wales for a sunset pre wedding shoot to coincide with our wedding shoot will which take place on the coast in Ibiza 2023. We felt relaxed and enjoyed the shoot, and Carl was constantly looking for the perfect spot and position of us to get the right photo. And then we seen the final edits...absolutely stunning! And I'm already looking forward to seeing the wedding photos next year. I would highly recommend Carl's proffesional, laid back, stunning services!
