  • "The photos were simply perfect"
    Tom & Rosie on 18 January 2018

    The recommendation we received to contact you, was on reflection one of the single, best wedding presents we were given. The truth is, to our embarrassment, that in our preparation we had not given photography anything like the consideration we should have done given the enormity of the task on the day. Thankfully you made sure that we simply didn’t have to. Your photographs captured exactly the kind of shots we were looking for, a testament to both your attentiveness to our brief (which I don’t remember being especially lucid or consistent – so well done!), and much more so to your terrific talent. Our guests have made no end of comments both as to the effort you made on the day (which was unobtrusive, relaxed and always good humoured, despite working like a Trojan all day) and also the quality of the end result – the photos were simply perfect. I have had no hesitation in highly recommending you.

  • "Such a professional photographer"
    Jo & Niall on 12 January 2018

    Paul was an absolute delight to deal with from start to finish. Paul's photos captured our wedding day absolutely perfectly, we couldn't have hoped for better memories of such a fabulous day. He managed to get close to everyone and shoot some of the most poignant moments without you even realising he was there. Paul's expertise and eye for detail could not be underestimated; he creates photos that have a magical yet natural quality to them. We felt very lucky to have such a professional photographer and now such beautiful wedding photos.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the wedding package include?

I'd generally photograph from 2 hours before your ceremony, until some time after your first dance (until I feel I've wrapped up the story). You'd receive all finished images - expect around 1,000 in total - in high-resolution, so you can print away as you wish, and in low-resolution ready for sharing online. Also, an online gallery for your friends and family to view :)

How far in advance should I contact you?

As soon as you can! Saturdays, especially, in the summer can get booked up very quickly.

Are you able to travel?

Yes - I travel all over the UK to shoot weddings, but am based in East Sussex. I was also shooting abroad 6 times in the last 12 months. I'll go anywhere and love to travel.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes - you would have an online gallery that you can share with your friends and family if you choose.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

Close to 4 weeks.

Do you send all the photos taken?

I'd probably take close to 3,000 photographs on your day and you can expect to receive around 1,000 in total. I look over each image individually to bring out it's greatest potential. You'll look stunning :)

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I work alone, although for larger events I do have an associate photographer who can join me for a fee.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

I have an associate photographer. I also have a network of fellow photographers, so if anything unforeseen should happen last minute, I would try my hardest to arrange a suitable replacement. Never happened before! But life is life!

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Extra hours beyond the usual are charged at £150/hour. This includes the editing time. Usual hours included are 2 hours before your ceremony, until some time after your first dance.

What are the forms of payment?

To secure your date, I would send you a contract to fill out. Once this has been received, along with the £500 deposit, your booking would be secured. The remainder can be paid any time up until your wedding day. Payment is always gratefully received and so very much appreciated.
