A West Sussex Based Photographer - Weddings, parties and photoshoots

Raksmey Mean 
aka Smey
[just start to say smile but forget the "le"]

Originally from Cambodia, I now call the UK home and live in the gorgeous West Sussex. 

My passion is photography and I'm never without one of my cameras.  Once a hobby, I now take commission work such as weddings, parties, and photoshoots for both people or your products. 

I also sell my beautiful landscape photography online and have a small gallery in The Partridge Inn, in Singleton & Midpines Cafe in Denmans Garden, Fontwell - both in West Sussex.

Current Seasonal Projects

I love to get out in nature and snap seasonal shoots.  Below is my photographic diary of sorts, to show you what I've been working on.  For more - don't forget to follow my Facebook and Instagram accounts. 


Let The Wedding Season Begin!

The amazing Jo & Andy helped us start this year's wedding season off well and truly with their amazing wedding at the White Swan in Arundel, West Sussex. Huge congrats to you both!

Christmas Thai Wedding

Christmas eve this year was celebrated a little differently for Mydee and her husband as it was their wedding day.  I captured this wonderful Thai authentic wedding in Bognor Regis.


A Halloween Wedding!

The wonderful Halloween wedding for Zach & Jasmine at Field Place, Worthing. 

Celebrated in a relaxed style, this was a great wedding at a lovely venue in West Sussex. 


Wedding day bliss!

Halnaker Windmill

Remembering a recent visit to Halnaker Windmill, near Chichester - looking out over the wonderful Sussex Countryside.  Come on Spring!


Julie & Ashley Wedding Celebrations

I was lucky enough to capture Julie & Ashley's wedding celebration first at the Town Hall in Arundel, followed by a reception at the Black Horse in Binfold.  The party was the following day in Slindon.


A beautiful summers evening

As part of my wedding packages you could get a bonus couple shoot before your wedding day.  Whether you wish to shout about your engagement or just feel the love....go for it!


An Amazing Day!

Adam & Ross celebrated festival style at their wedding.  With a ceremony in Chichester followed by a reception and band concert at the beautiful Decoy Ponds in Angmering.

Congratulations to Ben & Kat

Many congratulations to the happy couple, who asked me to capture their special day recently.  Set in a stunning Surrey hotel and grounds and thanks for leaving such a wonderful review on Google.  Wishing you a lifetime of happy years together.


New to Raksmey Photography

I am currently working on a fusion project, combining my photography with computer art.  The results are very visual and would look great hanging on your home/office wall!  


The Great Storm of '22

With no power and making sure I was safe, I had a little venture out with my camera to witness the storm of the year!

Feb 2022

A touch of art for the walls

I am pleased to announce that my limited edition prints are now available at 2 locations.  The Forge cafe in Slindon, and now at the Partridge Inn in Singleton.

We've had a great start to the new year and prints are selling through.  As they are limited editions, if you have your eye on one, get in quick before it sells out!

A Door into History 

Woke up at 3am to ensure I saw the world famous 10,000 year old limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast - Durdle Door at sunrise.  It was well worth the trip. 

June 2021

Wedding Season is here!!

With us coming out of lockdown, I am now getting bookings for weddings.  Be sure to contact me if you want to discuss your wedding day plans.  I take great pride in my work and as I am just starting out, my rates are lower than you think but the results are still professional and can show you a portfolio when we meet.


Cover Story!                      Read all about it!

I've made the cover of the local advertising magazine - Sussex Views. This beautiful shot of the sunset over the outgoing tides of Aldwick Beach, here in West Sussex. My work being seen by over 14,000 households is great!  


P.S. If your name is Kevin and recently contacted me about buying this picture - please get in touch again - I didn't get your email address to reply to you...

JAN 2021

New Year, New You!

In-between lockdowns and socially distant tier systems here in the UK, I was able to fit in a couple of photoshoots with some lovely clients.  Remember, no matter your experience or shyness level, I can get you shining in front of the camera before you know it.

The Locals of Petworth

I'm lucky enough to life in the South of the UK where it is bursting with wildlife, like these semi-wild deer, residents of a National Trust park in Petworth.  I got up early to witness sunrise during rutting season the other day.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

The Autumn colours mixed with the vibrant oranges and reds of Halloween has to be one of my favourite times of the year - well except for Christmas of course! 

AUG 2020


The bright yellows of sunflowers with the gorgeous summer sun - blissful

There a many sunflower fields scattered across the British Isles, but when I found out about one on my doorstep, I just had to grab my camera and venture to Hayling Island.  Just before kicking out time the sun gave us its sunset performance and the flowers danced!
