Hi, I’m John and I am a Swansea Wedding Photographer

“We were thrilled that we chose John to take our wedding photos. He was professional and unobtrusive and put us at ease right from the first meeting.”

“John was super laid back but a complete professional. His modern style of photography suited us perfectly.”

A little about me…

After years of taking photographs of my friends skateboarding and playing in bands I graduated with a degree in Documentary Photography in 2011.

From there I spent some time working as a picture editor for the Financial Times alongside working as a freelance photographer.

Fast forward a decade and I now live and work in Swansea, close to the wonderful Gower with my partner Jenny. We love going for long bike rides, coffee outside and just being in nature.

Outside of photography, I am utterly obsessed with music. I played in bands for years but these days I produce electronic music. If you can discover my alias I’ll buy you a drink on your wedding day!

No two weddings are the same. I believe that each day is as unique as you are and I strive to tell the story of your day in as an authentic way as possible.

I began my journey into photography by leanring all about the craft of visual storytelling and photojournalism while studying for a degree in Documentary Photography at Newport. I always try and keep these foundations in place while telling the story of your day.

This means I blend into the background, allowing things to unfold naturally, capturing real emotions and moments as they happen.

I know they aren’t everyones favourite part of the day. But I do believe they can be really important to at least do some.

Usually I ask for a short list of your requirements before the wedding and we do them shortly after the ceremony while everyone is still together.

Beofre your day I will ask for a timeline of the wedding, from getting ready until the first dance.

This ensures I know exactly what is happening and when. I’m also able to plan in advance the best time to go for some great sunset photos!
