About Us

Studio Forty Four is a collaboration between husband and wife. We’ve been on the other side of the lens, and we use that experience to deliver a relaxed, laid-back approach to wedding photography. We pride ourselves on our natural reportage style, producing stunning images that tell a story rather than plain ‘traditional’ staged photos.

Based in Cardiff, South Wales, we have shot weddings all over the UK and continue to travel throughout the British Isles to photograph some really beautiful venues.

It all starts here, we hope you like what you see!

Traditional, stage managed photos? Nope. We prefer things to be far more natural. candid. chilled.

Relaxed & Unobtrusive.

 

The weddings we are asked to photograph most often have their focus on having a wonderful, happy and romantic time together, rather than getting too bogged down in formality and tradition. For us, that is absolutely perfect.

We don’t believe that you’re at your wedding to be a model for us, and long staged photoshoots aren’t our cup of tea – you’re there to be married and to enjoy yourself with those closest to you.

We both really enjoy photographing the laughter and joy at a wedding and love capturing lots of informal pictures of you and your guests enjoying themselves. We also like to incorporate pictures of all the little details and, of course, plenty of beautiful, natural photographs of you both.

We put you first

Your wedding day is exciting, but it can also be stressful. We get that. Therefore we approach every wedding with you, the couple, at the forefront. We won’t get up in your face, we’ll never be pushy, and we always do our best to make sure you’re comfortable by checking in with you both throughout the day. Need a ten-minute breather from all the photos? You got it.

We come as a pair

All of the weddings we shoot, we do as a team. This means that with any package, you’re getting two experienced photographers. Two photographers who know what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera on their wedding day. Therefore we have a good idea of how you’ll be feeling at certain points throughout the day and we use that knowledge to make the experience as relaxing as possible.

We love to travel

Although we describe ourselves as ‘South Wales Wedding Photographers’ we’ve done weddings all over the UK. We love visiting new places, so this really isn’t a drawback to us! As well as Cardiff and the surrounding areas, to-date we’ve shot weddings in Essex, Lancashire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Warwickshire! In short, if you like what you see but you’re not getting married in Wales…don’t panic!

Studio Forty Four were a fantastic choice for our wedding. Josh and Amy have a really relaxed manner which helps put you at ease on a busy day, and the photos they sent us had a really natural style. They helped us to see little parts of the day which we would have missed otherwise, and gave us many amazing pictures that we enjoy looking back over.

Choosing Josh and Amy was one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding. Their photographs are extraordinary and really captured all the love and emotion of the day. From first contact to the last meeting before the big day; they made the whole process feel smooth and easy. Exactly what we needed at a stressful time! The photos tell the story and bring back all the memories to relive our wedding day. It's such a busy day for the Bride and Groom, but Josh and Amy were able to capture all those precious moments we may not have even noticed! We had such beautiful and unique shots, that we can look back on with laughter and love. Josh and Amy were the perfect team on the day- everyone loved them, and we will cherish the photographs forever. We couldn’t recommend them enough!

Aside from getting the perfect photos of our wedding day, the main thing I wanted from a wedding photographer was to know that the photography side of things was totally under control and I could get on with enjoying my day. From the moment Josh and Amy walked in the door, they blended in to the background and got on with being a fly on the wall just like I'd asked! Later on, when it came to having the group photos Josh was very considerate of how chilly I might have been as it wasn't quite the lovely sunny day we had hoped for! The small touches like that in a situation that is really quite alien to anyone make a big difference. We were pleasantly surprised to have the final edited photos in our hands within a week, and we were chuffed to bits with how they had turned out! We certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend Josh and Amy to anybody!

Josh and Amy's composition is the key to their talent. They always manage to compose photos of familiar scenes, but engineer them to look fresh and unique, without forcing it. The range of emotions they capture both confirms, not only their talent, but also how compelling their photographic style can be.
