Craig Smith Photography Wales

"Capturing moments to treasure".

We chose to have Craig as our wedding photographer! It was the best decision ever! From the moment I booked with him he was always so kind and welcoming always answered any questions and believe me I had a lot πŸ˜‚ on the actual wedding day I didn’t even know he was there snapping away, he interacted with everyone and made everyone feel at ease, my husband hates the camera and was dreading have pictures but Craig made him feel relaxed and not to be felt he was constantly having a camera shoved in his face, all through the editing process he’d keep me updated and send me little sneak peaks that would make my day better, today I received all the photos and sat and cried at every single one they are beautiful really captured the day perfectly! Thank you so much Craig you made our special day even more special

Mr & Mrs Turner - Newbridge (Wedding)

Craig was amazing from the moment he turned up, he made all the bridal party feel at ease while taking the photo's of hair / make up etc. Then during the ceremony and reception he went around taking photographs without being intrusive. He made all our guests feel comfortable and at ease, even the group photographs after the ceremony were done so they were fun. I absolutely HATE having my photograph taken but felt so comfortable working with Craig, he is professional, friendly and outstanding at his work. And the end results speak for themselves. The wedding package we choose was affordable and within our budget. He stayed in contact before the wedding to keep us updated with times, checked what photographs we wanted him to do during the day (group shots, family pics etc).

I cannot thank and praise Craig enough for his outstanding work, professionalism and friendly manor during the wedding.

Mark & Sarah Duddridge - Crosskeys (Wedding)

After seeing my brothers wedding photos I knew I had to have photos done with Craig. I booked a family photo shoot and was not disappointed! I have just received my photos from the shoot and I am over the moon with them. Craig is excellent with children and we really enjoyed the experience. I will definitely recommend him to family and friends! Thank you!

What can I say!
Truly professional from start to finish with an incredible knowledge and use of natural light, it was as if he was painting a picture with it, and what he captured was magical! I couldn't recommend this service high enough. He truly made our day special, made us FEEL beautiful, and left us with wonderful memories we can keep for life. He truly did more than take pictures of the day, He captured moments in time which we will treasure forever.
Thank you so much!

Alice & Rob  - Buckinghamshire (Wedding)

We came across Craig from the recommendation of a friend. The prices initially made Craig really appealing, as well as the style of his work. What we got as a bonus was someone who understood us, was easy to talk to, didn't fuss us, and blended into our wedding day seamlessly. We had nothing but positive comments from our guests about Craig.

Our photos made us laugh, made me cry but, most of all, really reflected our wedding day. There were plenty of photographs where I hadn't even realised he was there taking them! Craig has supplied us with lasting memories, and a way to relive our wedding day over and over.

If you're looking for a top quality service, with reasonable pricing, topped with a bonus great guy, Craig is definitely your man.

Mr & Mrs Robinson - Caerphilly (Wedding)

We recently had Craig photograph our newborn baby and we honestly can’t express how happy we are with the final edits. The photos are incredible! Craig is so lovely and made the experience fantastic. He also stepped up and helped us out last minute after we were let down by another photographer. Thank you Craig for the amazing photos and for being so accommodating!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Sam - Rogerstone. (Newborn Shoot)

We wanted to give our parents a canvas with the gran kids on for Christmas and chose Craig to take the pics which we would eventually use on the canvas. Craig was ultra professional from the outset and put the kids at ease with his friendly nature and mild manner. The location he chose was perfect at the time of year we visited and the results of the shoot were truly amazing. We could have printed a number of canvases with the images he supplied, there wasn’t one we didn’t like. Both sets of parents have commented on the quality of the images. Would highly recommend Craig for anything photography related, he’s amazing! Thanks Craig πŸ‘

Rob Bullock - Pontllanfraith (Family Shoot)

If you are starting up a new business or already run a business, I highly recommend Craig Smith to help push your business in the right direction with professional & custom photography.

From the moment we exchanged our first messages with you we knew that we were in safe hands. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Craig the pictures you've captured are truly breathtaking. The beautiful pictures you have taken tell a story. If it wasn't for you and our family then that story would have gone untold. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. You went above and beyond on our special day. You even stayed on for an extra hour and for that we are truly grateful. Thank you so much for letting our 5 year old son Jacob be your wing man. He loved being involved and taking the pictures with you. We hope to see you again in the not so distant future so you can capture some more precious family pictures. We highly recommend you. Much Love Dannii, Jonny, Olivia, Jacob & Joshua XXX

5 Stars!

Andrea - Shampooches Dog Groomer. Rogerstone.

This man was the most amazingly attentive photographer we could have ever wished for. He sees ideas and vision in every bit of your surroundings. He wasn't just a person who comes in and photographs, he was a friend who ended up being a part of our big day. Craig made friends with all our guests and even one month after the wedding we still have them talking about how brilliant he was. Our photos are to die for and he has captured our most magical day with such heart and compassion. For all these reasons we will never forget him and he will always be classed as a friend to us. There are no words to express how grateful we are to him. Thank you Craig!
