  • "One of the most talented photographers I have seen"
    Lisa on 18 January 2018

    I had the pleasure of being introduced to Paul Read Photography by a client of mine at Westmead Events earlier this season. Paul is one of the most talented photographers I have seen since working in the wedding industry. He captures so much vitality, personality and colour in his images and he not only seems to be able to be everywhere at once on a large site like mine, but is also completely unobtrusive. Upon seeing Paul's work I contacted him immediately in the hope of working together in the future and recommending him to my clients.

  • "Paul's photographs are stunning"
    Lucy & Adrian on 18 January 2018

    Paul's photographs are - without a doubt - stunning. We are so happy with the results; they have captured perfectly the emotion and feeling of the most magical day of our lives. We loved Paul's relaxed, friendly and professional approach from start to finish, which was commented on by our guests. It's great to have pictures that capture the essence of the day in a modern, artistic and incredibly beautiful style. When we first saw the pictures on Paul's website it brought a tear to my eye. It was great to have the pictures available online so soon after the wedding and our guests really enjoyed being able to view all of them, too. Thank you so much.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the wedding package include?

I'd generally photograph from 2 hours before your ceremony, until some time after your first dance (until I feel I've wrapped up the story). You'd receive all finished images - expect around 1,000 in total - in high-resolution, so you can print away as you wish, and in low-resolution ready for sharing online. Also, an online gallery for your friends and family to view :)

How far in advance should I contact you?

As soon as you can! Saturdays, especially, in the summer can get booked up very quickly.

Are you able to travel?

Yes - I travel all over the UK to shoot weddings, but am based in East Sussex. I was also shooting abroad 6 times in the last 12 months. I'll go anywhere and love to travel.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes - you would have an online gallery that you can share with your friends and family if you choose.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

Close to 4 weeks.

Do you send all the photos taken?

I'd probably take close to 3,000 photographs on your day and you can expect to receive around 1,000 in total. I look over each image individually to bring out it's greatest potential. You'll look stunning :)

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I work alone, although for larger events I do have an associate photographer who can join me for a fee.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

I have an associate photographer. I also have a network of fellow photographers, so if anything unforeseen should happen last minute, I would try my hardest to arrange a suitable replacement. Never happened before! But life is life!

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Extra hours beyond the usual are charged at £150/hour. This includes the editing time. Usual hours included are 2 hours before your ceremony, until some time after your first dance.

What are the forms of payment?

To secure your date, I would send you a contract to fill out. Once this has been received, along with the £500 deposit, your booking would be secured. The remainder can be paid any time up until your wedding day. Payment is always gratefully received and so very much appreciated.
