My name is Steve Wheller and I am a South Wales wedding photographer who would love to photograph your wedding. I live in Bryncethin which is only 20 minutes from Cardiff and Swansea and an hour to Brecon. Being in this perfect location just off the M4 it allows me to cover weddings all over Wales and England.
Who am I? A self confessed gadget nerd, Film buff, Bruce Lee wannabe (Wing Chun and Aikido), dog lover and a general all round nice guy. My couples describe me as calm, a really nice guy, professional, thoughtful, friendly and easy going. (Honestly I didn’t make this up).
Wedding photography is not about just taking a picture, it is about capturing the connection between two people in love and the friendship they have with their family and friends. Being there in the moment is what it is all about. Capturing the memories and the story of your day that you will value for the rest of your lives.
Art by Design was established in 2004 and provides the perfect wedding experience. This experience starts the day we meet up. Part of being a wedding photographer is not just turning up on the day, taking photos and leaving. It’s all about building a relationship and a friendship with you both. Getting to know my couples and understanding what you expect from me as your photographer.
Over luxurious flavoured coffee’s we chat about your day, what you like and don’t like, go through your timings to make sure you have time to mingle with your guests, have creative portraits and even pop to the toilet :-). Most importantly we get to know each other as it’s important we gel and feel comfortable in each other’s company.
Communication is key in building a relationship so couples can email, call or video call anytime to have a chat about timings for their day, ask about recommended suppliers, colours for their day etc. You only get married once and there is a lot to think about so why not ask your photographer about anything as they will have the experience and knowledge from covering hundreds of weddings.
After your wedding I edit all your photographs, produce a stunning gallery and design your wedding album. But our relationship doesn’t stop there. I hope the service I provide makes you want to come back and book anniversary, baby, family portrait shoots and document the rest of your story with your family and friends.
I pride myself on the quality of service and photography I provide to every couple. I am honoured to say I have been published in various wedding magazines and built a reputation based off recommendations from past wedding couples.
