We are documentary wedding photographers. AKA reportage wedding photographers.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Yes. Just be open with us. We're nice people and are there to capture your wedding day.

Best choice we made - definitely recommend
Paul is technically great – but what he really excels at is freeze-framing emotion. My wedding day was the best day of my life and he bottled all the joy and happiness capturing it for us forever. I can’t stop watching our fabulous slide show which works so well with the music he chose for us. It’s been great sharing with our guests as well as all those who couldn’t be with us given the pandemic. I can’t recommend Paul highly enough – this is the one thing you should spend your wedding budget on because you will have it forever.Sent on 14/09/2020

The most wonderful wedding photographs - look no further than Tansley Photography!
We spent a long time researching wedding photographers and we could not have been happier with the photographs produced by Paul and Carol. Everything from the prior communication, quality, their individual styles and their presence on the day was fantastic; their top of the range cameras meant we couldn't even hear the photos being taken, a factor we hadn't previously considered.Sent on 27/05/2020
Alongside the candid shots of our guests, we had some couples photographs towards the end of the day when the light was beautiful and the guests were enjoying a drink. These photos are simply stunning and will be treasured. This was the reason we chose Paul and Carol - so much experience and the ability to give direction. We felt at ease and knew there and then that we'd made the right choice!
Thank you for producing such wonderful photos of our day - we cannot recommend Tansley Photography enough!
Tansley Photography's reply:Thank you for the lovely review Sophie. We both loved capturing your wedding day for you. The portraits in the vines, were so worth spending a few minutes on. Some of my favourites of 2019. If anyone would like to see some of these, check them out here.

We were keen to hire photographers that we would feel comfortable with on our wedding day and to not be forced into endless poses. Having done some research, we knew straight away we wanted to book Paul & Carol and luckily for us they were available for our special day.Sent on 02/05/2019
On the day, Paul & Carol were just like a couple of extra guests and blended in seamlessly. At no point did they intrude on the day and they were a pleasure to have at our wedding.
The final collection of photographs was well received by everyone and it’s comforting to know that we have such great photos to remind us of our very special day. So much happens on your wedding day that it can become somewhat of a blur so it’s hugely important to have superb images to look back at - something Paul & Carol provide.
Our family members have recommended them to friends already and will continue to do so.
Tansley Photography's reply:Thank you for the kind words Ed, we loved capturing your wedding for you both.
