What are you like on a typical wedding day?
In-person, I am upbeat, fun, and of course, professional and more often than not my approach tends to leave me being friends with you, your mum, and your grandma before your wedding day is over! I love to help make your wedding day as memorable as it can be so you don't have to worry!

I love to help make your wedding day as memorable as it can be so you don't have to worry! You will likely spot me between photographs running to get a handbag for the bridesmaid or helping the wedding venue move some furniture for the dance floor! I have even once looked after a rather inexperienced teenager who had a little too much to drink but this was half an hour in a bathroom I would prefer not to have to do again!
What makes you different from other wedding photographers?
I treat every wedding as if it were my own big day. This means my customer experience is very important to me. You can rely on my team and me to provide great communication throughout resulting in artistic, fun, professional photographs without the stress!
How long have you been doing photography?
I have been doing photography professionally for over 8 years now! I started early, back when I was still studying in College.
How did you get into photography?
My real passion developed (pun intended) in college. I had a great teacher who saw potential and helped grow my passion for the subject. Meanwhile, I was working as a team leader at KFC, Carmarthen. I owe a lot to this as it taught me so much about customer service and business in general. It was also at this time that I completed a hospitality & management degree! Jump a few years and I went to Swansea UWTSD to continue my studies in Photography. Specialising in the arts I achieved my BA in 2018 and in the same year established Precision Photography! The rest is history!
What is your photography style like?
This is a difficult question as I am often surprised at how different and unique my images turn out. The most important thing to me is to establish a relationship with my brides. This helps me naturally understand your style and taste which sparks my creativity!
What kit do you use?
I use my Canon 5D Mark IV with a variety of prime lenses. Despite finishing my degree some time ago I am always learning and experimenting with new kit and techniques!
How can I ask you more questions?!
Get in touch! You can message me on Facebook, or email or give me a ring!

"Chelsea was absolutely amazing!! So professional and friendly. All my family and friends commented on how lovely she was to all of them throughout the day. She had lovely ideas for photos, and she also was open to suggestions that we made. I Highly recommend hiring Chelsea for wedding photography!"
"I swear you won't find a more dedicated, professional, budget friendly and just an all round amazing person anywhere else, I got married on May the 4th and Chelsea guided and supported us every step of the way, everyone at our wedding couldn't have said nicer words about how amazing she is! We had our photos back today and I'm blown away, I'm not a very photogenic person but every photo turned out so beautifully! And the pictures came back much faster than expected 😊 If you're looking for a photographer please look no further, Precision Photography is unbelievable!"
"A brilliant experience from start to finish. Chelsea worked her butt off for our entire wedding day! Snapping away quietly in the background meant we had some beautiful, natural shots which is just what we wanted! Chelsea took a great amount of time before hand to explore what type of pictures we wanted, and she listened! When it came to the more formal pictures, she was lovely and kind and had a gentle but firm approach to get the perfect group takes. We honestly cannot thank you enough and would recommend you to anyone who is after a wedding photographer."
"Chelsea was with us at our Cardiff wedding from the hair dressers to the last minute in the night.. Really friendly and easy to get on with. She made us feel at ease."
At Precision, we ask for 25% of your total (50% if the package/order total is less than £500) as a non-refundable deposit in order to secure your date and our services. If your wedding is postponed or cancelled please get in touch as we will try our best to reschedule. Please be aware there may be a charge of up to 10% of your total in order to reschedule. This does not apply to postponement due to Covid-19 related issues, please see more information below with regards to Covid-19.
All payments are made online via your private client planner. You are able to make payments as frequently as you like in order to work with your budget (Min £50 per transaction). We ask that your order total is paid in full 1 month before your wedding day. In the event you are unable to hit this deadline please let us know as soon as possible so we can agree on an extension.
We reserve the right to adjust our travel charge estimate. We will only need to do this if our automated system calculates the wrong total value. Please note by agreeing to our terms of service you are agreeing to pay any outstanding travel charge according to our calculation, found here, regardless of the estimate given to you by our automated system upon checkout. Also note it is very rare we actually need to adjust our automated travel charge calculation and when it is necessary we will, of course, contact you and justify the adjustment.
Wedding packages that contain more than one photographer will always include at least one experienced lead photographer (usually our founder, Chelsea James BA). In some instances, the other photographer may be an assistant/apprentice but please rest assured all our staff and images are quality controlled as a team and delivered to you as a collection in which we guarantee every image is of equally high quality.
We reserve the right to cancel your booking and refund you within 5 working days of your booking/order. Please note this will only happen on the rare occasion there is an error with our booking system that means we are unable to fulfil your order and we will let you know as soon as possible.
Your Final Images
We reserve the right to hold your final image collection until all outstanding payments have been collected. Should you be worried you will have difficulties paying the remainder of your total (usually 75%) all at once please get in touch as we will try our best to arrange an affordable payment scheme.
Please rest assured if we collect your personal information we handle it in the most secure way. We will delete any information we hold on our servers as soon as they are no longer needed (order complete). Please note Precision Photography does not collect any payment information (handled by a third-party, Stripe). Also note Precision Photography will never sell any of your personal information, such as your email address, to any third parties.

Travel Charge Information,
South Wales Wedding Photography
We do not charge for travel if your wedding venue is within 20 miles of our location. (Swansea)
If your venue is more than 20 miles from our location: We charge 0.42p per mile after the initial 20 miles. This calculation applies to both there and back so it actually results in up to 40 miles free of charge.
Rarely, we may calculate your travel charge by journey duration (rather than distance). This is in the event that the duration of the journey does not reflect the distance (Very slow roads). This results in 30 mins of free travel with every additional minute charged at 0.42p/min.
If your travel estimate is "not yet available": This means we were unable to calculate the cost automatically (either due to a lack of venue or an issue with google maps). In this instance, we will add this to your outstanding total to be paid after the wedding.
Total Journey - Free Milage (up to 40) * Travel Charge (per mile) = Travel Charge
Example: Journey to Venue = 25 miles.
So, Total Journey = 50miles (there and back).
Fuel Cost = 0.42p per Mile.
Free Miles = Up to 40 Miles.
Therefore: (50 - 40) * 0.42 = 4.2
Total Travel Charge = £4.20
Destination Weddings e.g over 100 miles or 2 hours (each way) from our location may be subject to a hotel charge as our photographer(s) need to stay overnight locally at your venue. In this event, we ask for £50 upfront as a part hotel fee.
Once the accommodation has been booked, we will adjust your total hotel fee to reflect the true cost. If the £50 fee was too much we will reduce your outstanding balance but should the cost of room and board be more than the initial £50 this will be added to your total due after the wedding. Please note the initial £50 hotel fee is taken in full as part of the deposit (not 25%).
