Behind the lens

Southwest Weddings is run by award winning photographer Charlotte Sams.

Her photography style is about capturing the natural moments. With over 10 years of photography experience, she loves to capture the small moments and details that all add up to create your unique wedding day. 

Based in Bristol, Southwest Weddings covers both Southern UK locations and further afield. Destination Wedding Photography and Elopements are also available.




I've worked as a freelance photographer for around 10 years now. As well as shooting weddings and commercial work, I'm also an underwater photographer, so I can offer some truly unique images for your day. 

I'm an ocean & animal lover. Anything outdoors and adventurous is usually great fun for me, though you may also often find me enjoying cooking, gardening, or relaxing at home.


My style is natural and relaxed, with a creative documentary vibe.


My clients are:



naturally beautiful,

maybe a little bit camera shy (I completely understand!),

and maybe a little bit non-traditional.

Your wedding is all about you. Be your true self. Show your fun, quirky personality. Do the things that make you happy. Let's make it a day to remember.


I'll be there to capture it all and help you save these beautiful memories for a lifetime.

"We are so over the moon with how comfortable you made us feel, and so emotional looking at these photos"
