Wedding Photographer Review





Wedding photographer reviews are important to share, for you to read these messages left by previous photographed couples that are just so warming! I get to meet and work with many amazing people, specifically, couples in love! From the initial meeting through to guides on wedding planning and ultimately; Being there to photograph their family and friends at their most intermit moments, especially during their wedding day.


All of which is a fantastic pleasure and receiving and reading heartfelt words, photography reviews such as these is certainly what gets me out of bed every morning. Here are what some of the couples I’ve recently worked with had to say about me as their South Wales wedding photographer… Also seen on my Google page reviews.

“Lewis should be an essential part of any wedding!”

There are no words to describe how grateful we are to have had Lewis as our photographer. He helped us create the most perfect day. From the very moment I opened the door to Lewis on the wedding morning I knew I was going to be in good hands. Lewis helped to build a calm atmosphere which added to me having the most wonderful wedding morning. Even when things were running late Lewis helped keep me calm.


Dog lover, shoe fixer and dress doer upper- he literally does it all! Lewis was so calm and relaxed in his approach that everybody was so comfortable around him. Lewis’ professionalism is unparalleled.


Everything was timed so perfectly. We felt that he contributed to the running of the day and allowed everything to go so smoothly. We think it’s so important that others realise that you spend a significant proportion of your day with your photographer, you need to like that person. With you Lewis, it feels like we have gained a new friend – he’s truly a lovely person.


We are overjoyed with the quality of our photos, not only were we able to relive our day but also see moments of the day we missed. We had the best day of our lives, it was everything we could have ever dreamed for. Thank you so much for being part of it. We are so grateful to have had you. Lewis should be an essential part of any wedding!

“you’ve been such a pleasure to work with from day 1”

We would highly recommend Lewis to any couple who is looking for a talented, friendly and fun photographer – full of personality!


We cannot thank you enough Lewis, for the amazing photos you’ve taken of our wedding day. They are absolutely beautiful! Going through them all has brought back all the emotions we had on the day and that’s exactly what we were looking for!


Not only are you an expert in your industry but you’ve been such a pleasure to work with from day 1 – your consultative approach has made the entire experience so unique and enjoyable! Thank you again.

He captured the love, laughter and details of our wedding absolutely perfectly.

The moment we met Lewis we knew we wanted him to be there capturing our day. We instantly built a rapport and talking about our wedding plans with him felt so natural – it was like having a coffee with an old friend!


In the run up to the pre-wedding photoshoot and the wedding itself, Lewis was always within easy reach of contact; always there to answer questions, keen to find out more about our plans and shared our excitement along the way.


Lewis’ photography style is perfect for what we were looking for – natural yet creative. He captured the love, laughter and details of our wedding absolutely perfectly. Every time we look through the online gallery it feels like we’re reliving the day all over again! We are absolutely thrilled.


Lewis is such a friendly, genuine, laid-back and warm guy with an incredible talent for what he does. It was such a pleasure to have him there with us on the day – honestly like a close friend or part of the family. We would book him again in a heartbeat!

“Nearly every one of our guests has commented on how great Lewis was”

Booking Lewis was one of the best decisions my husband and I made when planning our wedding.


Before the wedding his communication was excellent, he eased our nerves at the pre-shoot and was always on-hand to answer any questions we had. On the day itself, he was more than just our photographer; he gave welcome direction, adjusted my veil, fixed my husband’s tie, ran around in the heat, and so much more! We honestly believe the day wouldn’t have run as smoothly and calmly without him.


On top of all of that, the photos he’s captured for us are incredible. Somehow, he seemed to be in four places at once and photographed the whole day perfectly. Not only have we received hundreds of photos of our guests having an amazing time, he’s also captured the smaller details – the details you spend months/years planning that get lost on the day.


Nearly every one of our guests has commented on how great Lewis was and this is a testament to his easy-going personality and his professionalism. If you need a wedding photographer in South Wales or the Cotswolds, you should book Lewis.


Thank you again, Lewis, for being part of our day and capturing it so perfectly. We will treasure our photos for a lifetime.

“A big part of the day…”

I cannot put into words just how amazing Lewis was on our wedding day. To spend the day completely stress free with zero pressure from the photographer and achieve such amazing photos at the end of it was an absolute dream!


Lewis is very professional and very very good at what he does, it is clear he has a genuine passion for his job and making people happy whilst delivering an exceptional service. From arriving at the venue in the morning, Lewis was helping the groom’s party with their ties and mingling with the bridal party whilst capturing beautiful, natural, classy pictures that really captured the essence of the day.


I felt like Lewis had such a big part in the day as so many of our guests commented on how good he was, he blended in so well but at the same time was friendly and approachable and mingled with all of our guests. I’ve been to so many wedding where the photographers appear robotic and miserable but Lewis is the complete opposite. Honestly cannot fault him and could not recommend a better photographer for your big day!


Gabrielle & Iain – Rosedew Farm

“Lewis was incredible…”

Lewis is an incredible photographer. From the moment we booked him he was responsive and we quickly established a fantastic rapport.


Trusting Lewis’ ability and letting him photograph us at one of his local spots for our pre-shoot was a really enjoyable experience that allowed us to get used to the camera and figure out how best to make us look natural, which was nerve-wracking at first but with Lewis in charge became a fun day in the woods!


The stellar service continued with excellent communication leading up to the big day and loads of guidance with shot lists and tips for the day. On the actual wedding Lewis was incredible, grabbing every shot we requested whilst finding time to capture the magic of the day, all the while never being flustered by the relentless questions and heckling from our families. Bringing Dave along to assist was also flawless and we never felt rushed or that we were missing opportunities to snap something special.


We rightly had every confidence in Lewis as when we saw our highlights we were blown away. Lewis’ relentless hard work really shines through in all of our shots and we really could not have selected a better photographer to capture the build-up, ceremony, party: the whole day!


Natalie & Chris – Huntsham Court

“Made us feel so comfortable…”

We booked Lewis for our wedding back in September at Llanerch Vineyard. Lewis is such a lovely, friendly & professional guy who made us feel so comfortable having our photos taken.


We are delighted with how all our photos and album turned out. Could not recommend Lewis enough.


Danielle & Daniel – Llanerch Vineyard

“Captured our day perfectly…”

Lewis photographed our wedding back in April and we were so impressed with him from start to finish. During the whole process Lewis was always there to answer any questions/ queries and also gave us really helpful advice regarding planning a wedding in general.


Each time we look through our wedding photos, it’s as if we are re-living the most amazing day all over again. Lewis truly is a very talented photographer and captured our day perfectly in the most natural and unobtrusive way. So many of our guests commented on how friendly and easy-going Lewis was and one even asking if he was a family friend as he just got on so well with everyone! We were able to view all of our photos in a really quick turn around time after the wedding, and we loved that our guests were also able to view the photos in the online gallery.


If your looking for a friendly, fun and professional photographer who captures the most beautiful and natural images of your big day then look no further and book Lewis, you will not be disappointed!


Thank you so much again Lewis, Mr and Mrs Marley


Jess & Chris – Pencoed House

“Perfect ‘fly on the wall’ images”

If you would like a photographer that really does go the extra mile for you and will give you photos to cherish forever, please don’t look any further than Lewis!


We were a very camera phobic couple and he did such an amazing job of making us comfortable from the get go. Lewis can give you those perfect ‘fly on the wall’ images as well as beautiful portrait photos. Every time we look at our photos, it takes us back to that very moment where Lewis captured it.


By far, booking Lewis was the best investment we made for our wedding – 5* service from start to finish.


Georgia & Mark – Canada Lodge & Lake

“Stress free and magical!”

Lewis was everything we could of ever wished for and we can’t thank him enough. He was amazing from beginning to end, he was so calm and laid back making the whole experience stress free and magical!


All the while producing some amazing photographs! We can’t wait to see all the shots.


I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lewis to anyone for their big day!


Harriet & Darren – Hensol Castle

“He captured the day so beautifully and didn’t even notice he was there, with many guests saying the same!”

Really loved the photographs that Lewis took of us on our wedding day in Italy!


He captured the day so beautifully and didn’t even notice he was there, with many of the guests saying the same! He made us feel so comfortable and is such a friendly guy that the photos seemed effortless!


I was worried that because day went so quickly we wouldn’t have many photos together, but how wrong we were! There were still loads of stunning images captured without us even knowing, which was great because we didn’t want to spend hours off without enjoying our day, and we weren’t pressured into doing that!


He is so passionate about his job which is really refreshing and so accommodating with attending an abroad wedding for us!


Karys & Seb – Villa Eva, Ravello

“We barely knew he was there half the time…”

Lewis is AMAZING! An absolute pleasure to have had him there on the big day, he was a joy in the lead up to the wedding, the engagement shoot was loads of fun, and so helpful to have an insight prior to the day itself.


Our wedding photos are spectacular, we love them, and he really captured the essence of the day, we barely knew he was there half the time, but he caught some images we could never have imagined and wouldnt even have known had happened.


Lovely guy, incredible photographer – would recommend to anyone!  x


Rhianwen & Ollie – Plas Glansevin

“The photo’s are brilliant, we couldn’t be happier.”

Lewis was our wedding photographer and we had absolutely amazing photos on the day.


We also had a pre-wedding shoot which helped in getting to know Lewis and be comfortable ready for the big day.


We have access to an online album now with all of our photos and an unlimited number of free downloads. The photo’s are brilliant, we couldn’t be happier. Thanks Lewis!!

“He’s so organised, it’s great knowing there’s one less thing you have to worry about.”

We recently had Lewis to photograph our wedding and cannot recommend him highly enough.


He was so good at making you feel at ease in front of the camera and took absolutely stunning photos. The lead up to the wedding was really simple as he’s so organised, it’s great knowing there’s one less thing you have to worry about.


He was so hands on on the day, going above and beyond, helping us to know when we were meant to be doing things, on hand to help with bridesmaid dress issues and overall just having a good time and a laugh. 10/10!


Verity & Dafydd – Marquee farm wedding

Really caught the feel and the emotion of the day

We couldn’t be happier with our photos from Lewis, from the start he has been
approachable, professional and really understood our desire for a natural feel to the photos.


At our pre-wedding shoot, not only did he manage to get us to relax in front of the camera, but he was also utterly brilliant with our slightly naughty dog, and captured some fantastic shots.


On our wedding day, despite the best efforts of Storm Brian, not only did we manage to get brilliant group shots inside the venue but we also got the most phenomenal evening photos outside in the rain.


Lewis is so laid-back and unobtrusive the photos of our guests are really natural as everyone was so at ease and the dance-floor shots really captured the fun of the evening reception. Looking back at the photos we are thrilled at how Lewis has really caught the feel and the emotion of the day.
