MEET LUKE

WELCOME!

My name is Luke and I am the owner and principal photographer of Rivers & Roads based in sunny Newport, South Wales.

I am what some people in this world would refer to as "a bit of a nerd". When I'm not taking pictures, I normally have my face glued to some kind of video game or I'm on some weird science rabbit hole on YouTube.

I have 4 little sprites who (somewhat reluctantly) help me keep my photography skills honed in. Nothing more of a challenge than a two year old high on sugar!

Hiring a photographer is more than just pretty pictures. It's about the whole experience, start to finish. So have a look around, book yourself in for a chat and let's have a good old chin wag about your wedding over a cup of tea.

KIND WORDS

 "Luke just blended into the background, and we barely noticed he was there."

"Looking at the photos, I was amazed at how stealthy he was at capturing some of the most intimate and special moments without encroaching on them, like I have seen some wedding photographers do."

WHY CHOOSE
RIVERS & ROADS?

You'll see from looking around this site that I have a very "hands-off" approach to the way that I photograph. Call it what you will, documentary photography, photojournalism, candid photography, reportage photography, it just means that I leave you alone to enjoy your wedding day.

I won't ask you to pose or take you away for an hour to do a couple's photo session. I would rather capture moments of you laughing with your besties and doing that weird smushed up face people do after drinking shots. You know the one I mean.
