Welcome to Ryan Welch Photography

I’m a contemporary wedding photographer near to Newport, Cardiff & Bristol in Caerleon, South Wales. Part way through my degree in fashion photography, I decided that the industry really wasn’t for me and I discovered the unique world of weddings. It’s a world where people look their best and are living the happiest day of their life…what isn’t to love? I dreamt of creating work for people who wanted more than the typical stiff wedding portrait, who instead wanted something that represented who they were in a way that was natural and that told their love story in a chic, contemporary way. And so, I fused my love of fashion and wedding photography to create a path that continues to take me to incredible venues both in the UK and abroad, to document wedding days for the most gorgeous people, inside & out! Getting to know my clients is my favourite part of the whole process, with my aim being to simply show up on the wedding day and for your friends and family to think I’m a old friend…with a fancy camera. I like to think my secret sauce is making people feel relaxed in front of my camera. Hopefully you’ll see the results of this in the galleries across the site. When I’m not busy shooting weddings, I’m offering different types of family photography out of my ‘appointment only’ studio in Newport, South Wales and watching copious netflix under a blanket with my Italian Greyhound, Lucca!

Comments from some happy couples

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart, and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it; it is in one word, effective” – Irving Penn.
