About Paul Gapper Photography

Hi my name is Paul and I’m an award winning photographer, with over fifteen years experience. After spending many years pursuing my passion all over the world, I’m now specialising in wedding photography.

My approach is to help everyone feel comfortable and to capture the day in an unobtrusive way with a little bit of humour thrown in for good measure. Having me to guide you, whilst being a friendly presence on the day, helps break down barriers - and this in turn is what will make your photographs so special. My style is natural, candid, unobtrusive and artistic.

While working as a freelance photographer, I worked as a manager in the hospitality industry, in Canary Wharf, which means that I also have a good understanding of what else may be happening on your big day ‘behind the scenes. I gained much of my photography experience whilst working for The World Religious Photo Library, where I had to research my subject matter in great depth, which often led to forging significant personal contacts in diverse religious and secular communities. This in turn often led to being given exceptional access to areas that might be denied to other photographers.

So please get in touch. I offer a free consultation meeting and planning advice. Tell me a little bit about yourselves and the exciting plans you’ve got in store for your big day. I'd love to hear from you.

“Our photos are amazing – can’t quite believe how amazing they are” Kate & Greg 8/10/16

Thank you

    Paul captured some really brilliant moments. They were so natural and tasteful. When we look back on these we'll be able to remember exactly how it felt on the day. Thanks for the beautiful memories!

  • "Sam & Sarah Hilhorst's wedding April 2018"
    This testimonial was entered by Paul Gapper Photography on 26 April 2018

    Paul was the perfect photographer to document our small ceremony. He was very pro active and organised in arranging us for the pictures as well as being on top of our candid shots. We originally had booked for 1hr but Paul even went over time to take some pictures of our lunch afterwards. Very Happy!
