Wedding 1-10-2021

If your looking for someone who makes photos come to life, look no further, josh is absolutely amazing at capturing the most special moments.

I got married in October & from start to finish josh gave his all, early morning starts to capture all the getting ready, to even coming on a car journey middle of the Day to snap shots of me and my husband at the beach, to the end of the evening when he’s capturing all the funny funky dance moves that are always a pleasure to see! Haha. He doesn’t stop, but fits in like a guest. He’s brilliant with everyone, adults and children.
I really wanted a videographer but my husband was against the idea, but I don’t even feel like I needed one after seeing the photos, they really do come alive, they are the most special moments & every detail is captured nothing is missed & every time I see the photos I smile & get emotional
Thank you a million times over for the most magical photos.

I’ve had many photos taken by josh, family shots, generation family shots, my little one riding his bike & the wedding, & he’s just got a flare for his job, they are not a standard shot you always see, they are always different more special & the compliments I always receive for my photos I wouldn’t ever use anyone else.
You really are the best of the best!

The best at what he does!

I have always loved Josh's work and when we booked our wedding there was only ever one man I could trust for the job.
Josh is so professional but yet he fitted in like he was a guest at our wedding too. He has brilliant people skills, He was so good with both adults and children, making everyone feel relaxed whilst capturing those special moments. (Also brilliant with our dog when we had a pre wedding shoot!)
His photographs really told the story of our day and I will be forever grateful for him making sure he took the shots that were important to us. He also captured those natural moments that you don't want to forget about too!
Also have to mention the amazing quality of our wedding album. It came hand delivered and was beautifully boxed. Josh pieced it together perfectly.
I have previously had a family photoshoot with Josh for my parents anniversary. Again Josh was amazing! Nothing is too much trouble for him.

The most amazing photographer in Wales and a friend for life!

So Daniel Cooper and I had a vision of what we wanted our wedding photos to be like and knew it was going to be difficult for someone to fit the boot. Seeing these photos tonight has filled me with joy, emotions and happiness as it was 100% the right choice to choose Joshua Rhys Photography, anyone who attended our wedding seen how committed Joshua and Nicole were ensuring they had every little last detail by being with us from the moment we woke up to the moment my dancing feet had given up on me. I know they were both delighted to shoot/video our wedding and both his and Nicoles attention to detail has been second to none from the moment we booked them last year. We really cannot thank these two enough for bringing our vision to life and playing such a massive role in our day, these are photos we are going to cherish forever ❤️Not only did we find amazing photographers, but we really found friends in both of these amazing people….

Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!

When it comes to photos, although I have no skill, I like to be the one taking the photos as I hate having my own taken! This was one of the original reasons for choosing Josh as a photographer, as I had known him i a past life and felt that would be easier to deal with than a stranger. This previous connection also meant I quite often stalked the awe-inspiring photos he has taken across his career, and was confident that he would do our big day justice. However, I was not quite prepared for the unsurpassed hard work, energy, enjoyment, passion and skill Josh would bring to the day, not only for us the happy couple, but for everyone present.
Josh's talent and sheer passion is evident when you share your vision for the day with him - he is on board immediately with suggestions and brings your ideas to life. On a practical level which is so important when planning a wedding, he is eager to communicate and responded to my (many) queries and requests rapidly and honestly. Josh arranged a face to face meeting with us both before the wedding, where not only did he take us through the process, help us to map out our day in detail, provide us with suggestions for shots and timings, but he also got a sense of us as a couple that really shows in how he worked with us on the day and in the photos he has given us. His professionalism showed in the fact that he staked out the venue, finding the best locations for shots in general and to match our particular theme of wedding.
Josh came to my house on the morning of the wedding as I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. Straight away he settled my nerves and brought out the joy in the party. Josh had arranged for another exceptional photographer, Nicole, to be at my groom's house in the morning - where she was also capturing our memories and putting everyone at ease.
The hard work from both of this team continued at the venue. My husband and I had both agreed that although we would have some obligatory posing and photos with the family, that we wanted the images taken to be natural and capture the spirit of the day. This is exactly what Josh achieved. Every photo seems to speak for itself, highlighting the laughs, smiles and tears of happiness. Josh also paid attention to detail, knowledgeably photographing all the little things that I had taken the time to make and arrange and I am so glad that I will get to remember these details forever because of the photos. Looking through the photos I have, I also get to experience the day from my guest's perspective. It was almost as if Josh was all places at all times, as not a single detail has been missed. When discussing the wedding with guests, each one has commented on Josh's consistent hard work and energy - he didn't leave until the very end of the night but was motivated the entire time. Everyone also fed back about his easygoing and affable personality, which definitely allows him to bring out the best in people. I personally can vouch for this, as not only was I enjoying being photographed throughout the day, but my normally reserved groom was even requesting photos.
Thanks to his impressive photography and editing skills and knowledge, the photographs Josh has provided us have incomparable quality; they really are lovely to look at. But more than this, Josh has helped us treasure our wedding memories forever. I have yet to look through the photos without tearing up, and for this and the overall impact he had on our big day, I would recommend Josh to any couple looking for a photographer who will help to make their big day the best day of their lives….

THE BEST photographer in the world!

We honestly cannot thank Josh enough! Please book, don't hesitate, don't wait! The photography was the most important part of our wedding day, it's the images you get to keep forever and the most special memories. Josh gave us all the attention and time needed, he exceeded all expectations and couldn't have been a nicer or genuine guy! We are eternally grateful! xx

A great experience having Josh as our photographer

Josh went the extra mile to be at the start of our wedding day (bridal party getting ready) and stayed until late to capture some hilarious photos of everyone dancing on the dance floor! He scouted out a beautiful setting near our venue in advance so we had lovely shots at sunset. We were so pleased to have some of the photos edited and sent to us literally that night so we had some to look at first thing the day after our wedding. I would recommend him to be your wedding photographer, he made us feel at ease (I was so nervous about having a wedding photographer, we nearly didn't book one!) and I'm so glad we had him to capture our day. Thank you Josh!

Amazing photographer 😍

Cannot thank Josh enough for capturing our wedding on Saturday! They didn't stop snapping pics from the moment they arrived until late into the night. They were amazing with the children and made everyone feel relaxed in front of the camera. I don't think there was a single moment missed and the few pics we've seen so far are amazing. Would highly recommended! Thank you so much for everything….
