Wedding Photography- Sam and Steve Vaughan

unposed, Candid, natural wedding photography  

Amazing! Sam and Steve are so lovely and really helped us achieve the most perfect memories in our photographs of our big day. We cannot say thank you enough!

Hi! We are Sam (Samantha) and Steve, and we are documentary wedding photographers based in Bicester, North Oxfordshire. We always work together, and jointly photograph between 30 and 40 weddings all over the UK each year. We were previously known as SSVPhotography, and rebranded ourselves in November 2016 to Sam and Steve, to emphasise our personal touch, and because that is what everyone calls us!

we would love you to look at this short slide show before we tell you more..... 

A short sample of our work from weddings in 2016. Did you notice no formal poses and no forced smiles? This is what we mean by natural, relaxed wedding photography. Capturing the moment, not controlling it!


If you are dreading the thought of spending your wedding day posing for hours in stiff group shots and forced poses, we know what you mean.  We have been guests at these kind of weddings too!   We may just be what you are looking for. We specialise in natural, relaxed and unposed photography, sometimes called documentary wedding photography. We work in the background, listening and observing, capturing those special moments that made your wedding day special and yours.  Never controlling and never telling your family and friends what do, we use small, quiet and un-obtrusive cameras by Fuji. And we never ask your guests to "say cheese". Ever. Promise.  

So, if having two photographers working all day in an observational and non controlling way sounds just what you would like for your wedding, have a look at our featured weddings, learn more about us here, fill in the contact details, or just give us a call. We would love to hear from you. 

Sam and Steve Vaughan.

From the point we first talked to Sam and Steve about photographing our wedding they were incredibly helpful in answering all our questions and making sure our wedding would be a unique experience. On the day Sam and Steve captured all the moments we saw and those we didn’t. Their approach was never intrusive but always in the right place and our guests have commented how great they were and an integral part of the day. We can’t thank them enough for helping make our day so special from start to finish.
