    A thoroughly enjoyable relaxed experience

    I had been in touch with many outfits before I found Paul, he had a short video on his site explaining event photography etc, that made my mind up to use him as it so useful and informative. Paul was very down to earth and fully flexible, the output was perfect for us and I couldn't/wouldn't change anything.
    I highly recommend Paul for any kind of photography needs you may have and I will be using him in the future should the need arise.

    Thank you Paul for capturing my proposal so perfectly.

    Paul Gapper Photography's reply:

    Hi Gursh, thank you so much for your review, it was really nice meeting you Radhika you planed it so well!
    All the best to both of you for the future and hope the new house is finally sorted. Paul

    Excellent and friendly service

    On arrival Paul was ready and took pictures at the nick of time with professionalism all the way till the end. Edited pictures also came nicely and remained available on the cloud as needed unlike others who give a short duration. Thanks to Paul for being available at a reasonable price.

    Paul Gapper Photography's reply:

    Amazing photographer!

    Paul made us feel so comfortable on the day and the photos he got were amazing, especially because we're not photogenic at all. But Paul kept the tone light and upbeat and let us lead the day.

    Paul Gapper Photography's reply:

    Dear Emily & Jack
    Thank you so much for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to be your wedding photographer.
    It was a great to see how you both get on so well together and it was a delight capturing those intimate moments of the two of you.
    May I take this opportunity to wish you both and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Paul x

    Our dream wedding

    We first met Paul at the Epsom Downs Wedding Fair back in 2019, after seeing his beautiful photographs of other weddings we knew he was the photographer for us.

    Professional from start to finish, Paul kept in contact with us during the pandemic and reassured us that he will be at our wedding even after we had to change the date.

    I would highly recommend Paul to other happy couples, our weddings photos came out amazing and Paul captured our dream wedding beautifully.

    Perfect Day!

    We had Paul Gapper be the photographer for our last-minute scrambled together wedding and he was amazing. We chose him because of his stunning portfolio full of well-timed moments and that's the kind of feeling we wanted, and that's exactly what we got. He was a great sport because our day ended up being a lot of walking (we did a walk from our home to the town hall, then to the park, and then along the canal to the reception venue) and he was there along for the ride the entire time to capture it. Thank you so much, Paul!

    Paul Gapper Photography's reply:

    Hi Joy & Ravi, thank you for your great review, the walk did me good and it was so nice to spend the day with you both capturing the day as it unfolded.
    Have a great 2022! Paul

    A serene experience

    Paul photographed our private secular blessing. He was so unassuming, non judgmental and calmly took photos of us and our dog without us two camera shy people feeling self conscious. He had good ideas on what photos would work and the resulting photos were just what we had hoped for.

    Paul Gapper Photography's reply:

    Dear Christine and Riaan, Thank you very much for your kind review it was a real pleasure to meet you both and your very well behaved dog! May I wish you both many, many years of happiness together!
    Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Highly recommended

    Because of Covid 19 we could only have 10 guests at our wedding including Paul. The service was much shorter than usual and we couldn't have the reception we'd planned. There were a lot of restrictions for a wedding photographer but Paul had some great ideas and did a wonderful job. We're delighted with the photos he took. He was a cheerful and confident presence who managed to capture something special in his photos. The album he put together is something we'll treasure, the characters of our guests shine through in the photos. I would recommend him to anyone. Many thanks Paul.

    Paul Gapper Photography's reply:

    Hi Amanda, thank you so much for your lovely review, so happy to be a part of your special day especially with covid restrictions. Paul

    Really capturing the moment!

    Paul has to be the most efficient, friendly and most professional photographer! He was at the venue before we arrived and was really friendly and easy to work with. He really made you comfortable and was overall fantastic! The photo's came back and me and my wife were so happy with how they came out!

    We really recommend Paul and if we need to have a photographer for an event again we will be sure to hire him again. THANK YOU SO MUCH PAUL!

    Hi Serando, Thank you so much for your review it was an honour to be part of your special day. Hope you both have a great Christmas and prosperous New Year Paul.

    Friendly, professional, and a good eye!

    We hired Paul for our wedding at the Merton Register Office. It was a small, quick ceremony so we wanted someone who knew the building big could also be flexible on the hours. Paul was fast to respond to our emails, and on the day he was so helpful in guiding us and our guests around the building for the best shots. He captured so many lovely moments of the afternoon in both candid photos and posed photos. We highly recommend him!

    Paul Gapper Photography's reply:

    Hi Kristin, thank you so much for your lovely review, it was a real privilege to be part of your special day and capturing those magic moments, I love the two of you during the confetti throwing! May I wish you both all there very best for the future and have a great 2022! Paul
