Hi I’m Paul, and I’m an accomplished photographer with more than 15 year’s experience. After spending many years as a documentary photographer, I am now an accomplished wedding photographer. My approach is helping people feel comfortable so I can capture the day in an unobtrusive way. Having me to guide you whilst being friendly and approachable breaks down all barriers and this is what makes for some fantastic candid photographs on your special day.
I offer three packages, with my all day package being the most popular. From bridal preparations to just after the first dance, all photographs professionally edited in high resolution supplied on a USB stick, online viewing exclusive for yourself, friends and family. For all Hitched customers I’m offering a £150 discount! Normal price £1,200 but for Hitched customers my all day package is now just £1,050!
My offer comes with the following:
•Personalised USB and keepsake presentation Box, either leather bound or linen with the colour of your choice.
•Pre-consultation all the way to the wedding.
•All day coverage.
•Professionally edited photos in high resolution supplied on a USB stick.
•Additional printing including custom made Wedding albums available (price on application)

Special pictures for a special day
We met Paul at a wedding fair. He was friendly and easy going. We liked his work a lot and decided that he will be our wedding photographer. Paul was brilliant on the day. We had some foreign traditions incorporated throughout the day and Paul captured all important moments in the pictures. Our wedding photos are awesome and we absolutely love them. They are a beautiful reminder of our special day :-)Sent on 28/09/2019
