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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
