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.

Thank you

  • "It is wonderful to have such a complete record of the day all captured professionally"
    Sue Knibb on 26 September 2017

    WOW! Thank you SO much, these shots are absolutely gorgeous. Our parents cried all the way through looking at them - in a good way! ?? They are so lovely and really capture all aspects of the wedding; the different moods, the fun, the intimate bits - they are really great. We'd really like to thank you for being so lovely and supportive on the day too - you have a great friendly demeanor which makes people feel at ease even in front of the camera and you were able to orchestrate both the big group shots and the shots of the two of us with a laid back confidence, which in turn made us confident, so thank you. We'd also just like to say thank you for putting in such a long stint on the day! Right from the hotel in Hitchin to the first dance and cake, it was a long time and involved lots of travelling so we are really grateful to you for agreeing to cover all these parts. It is wonderful to have such a complete record of the day all captured professionally. Thanks very much again, we will be sure to recommend you to everyone we know! :) Kind regards, Sue & Jason x

  • "Extremely helpful"
    Nic on 27 July 2017

    We spent a while looking for a wedding photographer, but as soon as I spoke to Paul on the phone and then met him, I knew we had found the photographer for us! Paul was extremely helpful in the run up to the wedding and made us feel at ease. Paul arrived early on the day of the wedding to look around the venue and our guests commented on how lovely and professional he was. We can’t recommend him highly enough!
