DOCUMENTARY Wedding and Family PhotographER south wales

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Chris - the photographer behind The Silence of the Lens. I'm a South Wales photographer who specialises in unposed, unobtrusive, documentary-style photography with a non-traditional, discreet, and candid approach to family and wedding photography.

I cover all of South Wales including Swansea, Cardiff, Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot, Llanelli, Vale of Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire, Newport, the surrounding areas... and I love a roadtrip so I'm more than happy to travel anywhere in the UK! 

Family Photography

Would you love photographs of your children and your family but don't want those awkward, , white-background, forced-posed studio shoots? In that case, I have something just for you... A Slice of Life!

'A Slice of Life' sessions are natural, relaxed family photography without all the stress - documenting the real moments of your everyday family life. These are perfect for those families who want to capture and preserve how their children and lives are right now. 

I have a selection of packages ranging from A Slice of Life, to A Day In The Life, to A Year In The Life (e.g. Baby's First Year).

Prices start from £80

Wedding Photography

If you are a wedding photographer looking for a second shooter, or if you are getting married and having a small low-key wedding, please feel free to get in touch.

I have a passion for capturing people in genuine moments, with real emotions; filled with love, fun, and humour. The little moments you can't stage or replicate. Not only do I want my pictures to show you how something looked, I want them to show you how it felt.  

I won't stage you, make anyone say 'cheese', and won't force you to do any cliché wedding poses. I will be like a guest at your wedding, who simply blends into the background to document everything going on around you.

To me, documentary photography means making a picture so that the viewer doesn’t think about the man who made the picture. At its esthetic core is very old tradition in art: naturalism. And its purpose is to document all facets of social relationships.
