Back Up Equipment
I take my work very seriously. I shoot with two cameras and have ample back up equipment…plus I always think ahead and have plan B travel options already thought out. “What if…” is always on my mind!
Yep! I love an engagement shoot!
Full Day Coverage
Most shoots cover from 2 hours before your ceremony until some time after your first dance.
Most shoots cover from 2 hours before your ceremony until some time after your first dance. However, I can also be flexible.
Half Day Coverage
Half day coverage is an option if either mid-week, or weddings that are within just a few weeks away from now.
Every wedding I shoot has its own online gallery. This can be set to ‘private’ if you’d prefer, or ‘open’ so it can be shared with your friends and family.
Yep – I offer this!
Meeting for a beer/coffee is always good – it’s important that I’m not a stranger on your wedding day, so yes, please let me know if you’d like to meet up – it will be my pleasure!
Second Shooter Available
A second shooter is available. I generally recommend this if your wedding is close to 200+ people, but otherwise I am comfortable shooting alone. It’s up to you – if you have just 20 people, you can still have a second shooter if you’d like!
I offer absolutely beautiful wedding albums. Top quality.
Willing to Travel
I travel far and wide! I cover all of the UK and I’m often shooting in European countries, plus I’ve photographed weddings in India and New Zealand. I love to travel. Travel expenses are at cost.
I’m speechless – the photos are truly amazing – I’m in tears! It is like living through the whole day again. I don’t know how you do it but I am so glad we bumped into you at the Brides the Show in Islington that day.
We love, love, love them!!!
So excited, I can hardly type!!!! […]
These are the most beautiful pictures!!! I’ve been looking at them all week! I don’t know how you manage to walk into a place with 100 strangers and photograph them like you have known them forever, but thank you so, so much! […]
Well..what can we say about Paul, except that if you book him you will not be disappointed! His photographs far exceeded our expectations. He was so professional and knew exactly how to fit in with the hustle & bustle of the day without being demanding, or in the way. He was reassuring at all the right points, and calm throughout.
He’s a very cool guy who will charm your guests, make everyone feel at ease & deliver amazing images. We are so pleased we chose him to photograph our big day!
