I have the most amazing job in that I get to share some of the biggest moments in many people's lives. While having the reponsibility of capturing the special moments, the overall essence and sheer joy of a wedding day, I thrive on the excitement and can't wait to share the images after the big day. While based in Dorset, I cover the whole of the south coast and am willing to travel further afield, so do please still get in touch. I am friendly and relaxed, but have a very professional approach to covering your day, and will listen and cater to your specific needs.
From bridal preparation to the first dance, I will be on hand to cover the day from an unobtrusive, informal point of view. Not only will I capture those very special candid moments, I will manage your guests and photograph anything specific that you may have in mind - including those all-important group shots! If you would like to find out more, please get in touch, and visit my website for more info.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the price of your service?
This depends on what service you require. I have some prices on my website but I can tailor a quote to your requirements. Do get in touch.
What services do you offer?
I offer various packages for all budgets, whether you require me for the whole day or for just a part of your special day.
What does the wedding package include?
Again, this depends on the package you go for. Please do get in touch. I am more than willing to answer any questions you may have.
How far in advance should I contact you?
The simple answer to this is 'as soon as possible.' A lot of people plan at least a year or more in advance, but I do have clients come to me with much shorter notice. Dates get booked up fast, but please do ask the question to see if I am available.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Are you able to travel?
I am based in Dorset but I am willing to travel to the surrounding counties. Do get in touch with your location details.

Usually, if you are wanting to book me for Dorset or the surrounding counties, travel is included in the quoted price, but if you are getting married further afield I can supply you with a quote.
What style of photos do you take?
Generally reportage style wedding photography to catch those special moments as an observer, but I do do group shots and anything else you require.

I used Canon cameras and lenses, both an Apple Mac and a PC for post production and an Audi to get me to the location.

Canon cameras and lenses, Apple Mac and PC for post-production and an Audi to get me to the location(s).

Photos are delivered approximately 2-3 weeks after the wedding.
Do you send all the photos taken?
No. I only send the good quality ones that meet my standard.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I work alone as this keeps the cost down, but I can quote for an additional person if required.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
This has never happened so far but yes, I do have colleagues that I can call in in the event of an emergency.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
I grant you full copyright permissions to print, share and so anything you want with your wedding photos.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Absolutely, though this depends on the conditions. My full day packages include everything from bridal preparations all the way through to the first dance anyway. Again, I am willing to discuss.
How do you charge extra time?
Again, this depends on the conditions. Please email or call me to discuss.
What are the forms of payment?
I accept bank transfer as a general rule but can also accommodate alternative payments.
How do you work?

Hannah & Thomas - June 2019
Can’t thank Paul enough for being such a brilliant photographer. Lots of our guests commented on what a lovely guy Paul is. So easy to get on with, and was able to blend into the background so wasn’t intrusive with taking shots at all. We have some really amazing photos, including all the requests we had (special mention to the pics of our dogs!). Definitely recommend!!Sent on 10/08/2019
