Capturing memories that will last a lifetime and beyond... Simply natural and beautiful...
Introducing Jeff Sham Photography - I’m Jeff, a professional wedding photographer, a Best of Bridebook 2023 Platinum Award winner. I was awarded International Top Ten Wedding Photographer of the Year 2018 and in the same year, inducted to The Guild of Photographers’ Photographer’s Bar with honorary lifetime membership, for producing consistently high-quality work.
Established in 2011, I have been photographing weddings all over the country for over a decade, and I am honoured to have had both the pleasure and privilege of sharing that one magical day of so many couples. By blending a mixture of traditional formal, contemporary natural, and documentary photography into my own unique style, I aim to bring you a set of intimate, natural and elegant images to tell your beautiful story.
Here’s a very short video with just a few reasons to consider me for your wedding photography.

Enjoy a short reel of our 2022 weddings.
Every wedding is so unique to each couple, from intimate ceremonies, historic churches, to estates and mansions - watch a short video of highlights showcasing weddings from 2017, and try to resist a smile; then browse through our collection of photos from Real Weddings.
I believe in a very friendly yet professional approach to wedding photography. I am always excited to receive your wedding enquiry, and hear about your plans for your big day - a reply is sent quickly and courteously, with availability and answering any questions you may initially have. I encourage a meeting (or initial phone call), where we can discuss your day and your photography requirements over a coffee, and you can see more of our work and you can touch and feel some of our fabulous wedding albums. A quote will be provided for you, and once the initial deposit/booking fee is paid, your date is blocked-out in my calendar so there is absolutely no chance of a double-booking. Around 9/10 couples who meet with me, go on to book their wedding with me!
A couple of months before the wedding, we arrange a pre-wedding consultation where we go through your day in super fine detail, noting everything that’s happening, including all the key people, times and locations, and your photography requests, including family groups, and even backup plans in case of bad weather - this is often an invaluable session for the couple. This will be typed-up into a confirmation letter which will be sent over to you confirming everything that will happen on the day, with times, a list of all of the requested photos, plus details of everything that you’ve ordered and will receive.
On the day, you can expect me to arrive dressed appropriately for your day (usually a formal suit and tie - no t-shirts and cargo pants here). You will see a constant smile on my face as I go about capturing your day in a jovial manner, with minimal fuss, making you and your guests feel completely at ease.
Finally, you can expect to have your images ready to view typically within four weeks of your wedding day; wedding albums usually take up to two extra weeks to produce. This is the point where you smile together as a newly married couple and relive your day and memories through your lasting and beautiful photography.
