Photographing Weddings in South Wales & Beyond

We have been together for 4 years, we met at a run club so we both love to hate running. We love travelling and discovering new places, cultures and people. 

We spent 6 months of 2019 on our big adventure travelling around South America, there we experienced some once in a lifetime experiences like hiking for 4 days to Machu Picchu, speaking Welsh in Patagonia and visiting Torres del Paine National Park (featured below).

Taliesin started his photography journey with his father, spending weekends chasing heritage steam trains up and down the country. They  have become well known photographers within the heritage rail community and have had two photography books published, been featured in a range of magazines, newspapers and other publications.

Landscape photography is another passion for Tal, forever getting up at 4am to climb Pen y Fan for sunrise or walking for miles to get the perfect shot. He has also won the 'Young Landscape Photographer of the Year' and been featured in The Sunday Times.

Once described by one Groom as a 'ninja', Tal will stop at nothing to get the right shot - lying on the floor, climbing a tree... His quick reactions means he captures the most candid of photographs which often turn out to be the best shots of the day.

And I'm Rhiain, hi, hello! I've always had an eye for design and photography but now I'm following my passion and building this business, which I hope that you can be a part of!
So, I get to look after our shiny new website, replying to your messages and getting to know you on Facebook and Instagram and all the other paperwork and boring jobs that nobody ever tells you about before you start your own business. 

But I'll also be there at your wedding, camera in hand, always looking for different angles, making sure no hair is out of place and no wonky tie in sight.

"Although we were pretty laid back about the whole day, I knew one thing I didn't want and that was too many posed photographs as that really didn't reflect Ben and myself. Rhi and Tal took this on board and managed to capture our day P E R F E C T L Y."
