Portrait of Peter James Morgan of Morgan James PhotographyAbout Peter James MorganAbout Peter James Morgan, wedding photographer in Cardiff, vintage wedding photographer, award winning photographer

Why do I love photography?  I mean i've done lots of things in my life.  I worked in IT since i was 16.  Played in bands, even once got arrested whilst in a village people tribute band in abu dhabi (we actually weren't that bad!).

I think the main reason is that taking photographs isn't just a job to me.  It's my biggest passion and something that I've learned means so much to other people.  I never had that really in any other job that I did.  The ability to be able to capture people's most precious life events and emotion is an incredible privilege and an honour and the fact that I love it is fantastic to me.  I love learning about how to capture a better image, a better moment improving every time.

"Weddings just seemed to be the right vehicle to achieve that to be honest as theres such a breadth of human emotion encompassed in such a short period of time that it seemed strange to do any other type of photography.

Capturing the excitement of Weddings means that I get to see the whole breadth of human emotion.

I constantly feel connected to people and to be such an important part of their wedding day is a real honour. Every wedding I shoot takes me back to my own wedding, what an amazing day I had and how I felt.  Something I think comes through in my images that I capture and create"
