Do you travel for weddings?
My business is based in Somerset,UK. I am a huge fan of travel, and I am happy to go any where, travelling over 2 hours, I may need accommodation the night before. I have shot weddings in San Francisco, and in Poland so I do like to stretch my wings and fly!
Can we meet before the wedding?
Absolutely, did I tell you I love coffee? Meeting couples before the big day is a very important part of our work, and we feel it's very important to build a relationship with you.
We feel awkward at having our photo taken, how will this work?
You are not alone. Many people feel the same way and I’m no exception. Don't worry, my style is really relaxed with hardly any posing and forced stuff. On the few occasions during the day that you'll expect to be posing, pics of just the two of you for example, we'll keep it really chilled and informal. We'll go for a walk for no more than 20mins or so, and I'll get you to walk, chat and smooch naturally. I'll be silly and make you laugh which will make you forget its photo time. For the rest of the day you'll hardly realise I'm there
What's the time frame of delivery of photos
You will receive a sneak peek of your images within 2 weeks of your wedding date. The rest of your gallery will follow approximately 3-5 weeks after your wedding date. I will send all of your digital photos in a beautiful online gallery. This will make it easy for you to view and share with your family & friends, and you'll be able to download the files in both high resolution for print, and web-sized.
What is your approach to wedding photography
Let's rock the wedding day with boundless energy! My goal is to dive headfirst into the festivities, capturing every moment with a creative and vibrant storytelling approach. I thrive on the tiny, in-between moments—the feelings, the heartfelt embraces, and the lively interactions between loved ones. Weddings are spontaneous and authentic, just like the images I aim to create. I believe in being attentive, responsive, and curating a collection of photos that authentically reflect my couples, their unique personalities, and the incredible experience they share with their cherished friends and family.
Paul was utterly incredible!! From the moment we enquired with Paul, he put us at ease and I knew we had made the right decision by asking him to capture our day. Paul kept in touch with us right up to the day and was super quick to get our pre-shoot photos over to us. On the day, Paul and Viv were fantastic, they really were a part of our day. Our guests loved them, they calmed my nerves, really got involved and made a huge difference. With some sneak peak photos a couple of days after our wedding, we were chuffed! Our wedding photos were then ready at a much quicker lead time thnt promised and we are over the moon. We could not recommend Paul enough. Such a kind, caring and professional person! Our Photos are more than I could have wished for. PERFECT!
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Paul is at his job. He made us feel at ease and if he was there as a friend rather than a photographer which definitely helped with the nerves! From start to finish he just couldn't do enough for us and went above and beyond what you'd expect of a photographer including staying on later than planned to capture extra photos and memories for us. The pictures were absolutely amazing and we will truly cherish these for the rest of our lives! The wedding day flies by but the pictures will last as a memory for life. Thank you so much Paul for everything. Can't recommend you enough!!!
We cannot thank Paul enough for being our photographer. From when we first booked him, to our engagement shoot, to our wedding day - he stayed in contact regularly, let us know exactly what was going on and what to expect. He is the most talented photographer EVER! The pictures he created on our engagement shoot and our wedding day are amazing and blew us away. We absolutely love them and we had so so so much fun creating them with him! He’s just fantastic and a really really cool guy - thank you so much Paul, we’ll be forever grateful!
Paul Paul Paul, how is it that I have no words but could equally write an essay about how much of a wonderful, talented and kind human being you are! From our initial phone call with Paul we knew he was the guy for us and wanted him there to capture our special day. He has been unbelievably helpful, reassuring and a positive soul throughout all the planning process to now when Im suffering from the wedding blues!! As I’m sure many people are, we were super nervous to get in front of the camera but after our engagement photoshoot, we came away with more confidence and pure excitement for our wedding day and a sense of feeling comforted. We were obsessed with the photos that came from this but our wedding photos are even better which I didn’t think was possible. Paul genuinely feels like one of my besties and he was my rock on the day. We had soo many compliments from friends and family and a couple of ladies even had a cheeky crush!???? If you are planning your wedding/occasion then please don’t look further, book Paul straight away, you will not regret it!
Paul was worth every penny spent. An incredibly skilled photographer, Paul exceeded expectations for our wedding. His role extended beyond merely capturing photos; he actively orchestrated the day, even quelling my unexpected morning anxiety. The day after the wedding, we received snapshot photos. To say we are pleased would be a complete understatement. These photos surpassed our expectations, brimming with enchantment and originality. I cannot stress enough how much Paul put everyone at ease whilst still managing to organise photos at a particularly sizable wedding. Paul remained inconspicuous throughout the day, and the timeless, remarkable photos stand as a testament to his expertise and experience. I wholeheartedly recommend entrusting Paul with creative control, allowing him to perform his magic.
