Absoulutly amazing work and a very friend person

Absoulutly amazing work! Worth every penny! Very friendly to the point our guests were asking if my now wife and I knew Paul on personal level, and after spending the day with him, we wish we did! Paul certainly knows how to immortalise the moment and is very helpful especially if your a bit camera shy like myself. Thank you very much Paul
Cannot rave enough about you!

Amazing talented photographer



We would just like to say a massive thank you to Paul for the amazing photography on our wedding day, you put me and my husband (still sounds weird to say) at ease straight away, I’m ok being photographed but my husband not so much, but Paul explained it would all be worth it once the photos were seen and wow we were not disappointed we have received some amazing photos.
Capturing the beautiful @clevedonhall We are over the moon with them.
It felt like Paul was one of our good friends from the start.
Paul knows exactly what he’s doing and would highly recommend him to anyone. 5⭐️
Thank you from Mr & Mrs Carter

Stormy Plymouth

We met Paul at our engagement shoot, apparently I need this as I look like a fool infront of the camera and I get really nervous, my now husband knocked it out of the park, I was the problem. However Paul made us very comfortable from the word go. having the engagement shoot meant we were already comfortable with him at the wedding. honestly it was more like having another guest as he is so friendly, fun and approachable. Our venue was small and we had a freak storm that confined us, but he managed to get some cracking shots despite this! He was happy to be at the end of the phone call or an email. I don't know how he managed it but he was everywhere at the wedding getting all the good shots and smiling faces!
We are looking forward to our second shoot in the summer now, due to the poor weather we had, let's hope for some sun people!!!

Simply incredible!

Paul is absolutely incredible! We had quite a windy/ rainy day for our wedding on the 16/03/24 but this did not spoil our day and the photos are stunning. Friends and family have marvelled over the photos and how beautiful they are. We simply can’t choose which ones to print.
Paul’s communication is brilliant and everything is explained as you go along. My husband is very camera shy and hates having his photo taken but soon relaxed as Paul made us all feel comfortable and he was so easy to talk to. We had a second photographer, Matt working alongside Paul who was absolutely lovely and together there were lots and smiles and laughter. Cannot even put into words how much I would recommend Paul and his team!

Dream wedding photographer!

Where to start with Paul Aston Photography!? Paul was the PERFECT photographer for our pre-wedding and wedding day photos. Not only is he extremely talented, he made two very camera shy people feel completely at ease in front of the camera. He was a total joy to be around and it was hard to remember we weren't hanging out with one of our wedding guests (though he did have to do a lot more running around than them!). Forget boring family portraits - Paul has a great eye for some fun and quirky shots that will put a smile on your face when you look back on them. We are over the moon with our gorgeous photographs and have so many beautiful memories to look back on, every special moment captured. To top it off, the booking and planning process was totally stress free. We cannot recommend Paul enough and would advise you run, don't walk, to book him for your day!

The absolute BEST in the business!!

Where do we even start?! Paul has been phenomenal from the very start. We actually knew we wanted to book him for our wedding before we even had a date booked, as we had been so impressed with him at weddings we had attended before. The booking process was simple and Paul was on hand to answers any questions we had in the run up. We even had a facetime catch up a few weeks before, which we found so helpful and reassuring. It really always felt as though we were talking to a friend of ours, we felt so at ease. When it came to the big day, Paul arrived promptly and ready to get stuck in, and he worked amazingly well alongside our videographer and others. Paul is an absolute expert at what he does, so we trusted in him completely to get the shots we would want. We had quite a large number of guests, but Paul was able to keep control and help the day run stress free, we just enjoyed every moment. Paul is worth his weight in gold, and we would highly recommend him to anyone with an upcoming wedding.

Thank you Paul for giving us such beautiful pictures to treasure for the rest of our lives, we will always be so grateful.

Love, The Pettitt's x

Speechless

There are no words to describe Paul's talent and enthusiasm for his work. From the minute we spoke to him we knew we had found our photographer and I don't think we stopped laughing from the moment our engagement shoot started until he left on our wedding day. He honestly felt more like having a close friend with us than a photographer and he has a way of putting everyone at ease. Our guests absolutely loved him and are still raving about how genuine, friendly, funny and easy going he was. The photos we've seen are absolutely stunning and we cannot wait to receive the rest of them. He had some fantastic ideas for shots and poses, he even got my mum involved to demonstrate the dip he wanted us to do which made her day!

We absolutely cannot rate Paul highly enough, you won't be disappointed!

A legend 🙌

Paul is quite simply a master at what he does.

From start to finish he has been an absolute joy to work with, nothing was a problem or too much of an ask. Paul worked seamlessly on the day, weaving in and out of our guests, bringing smiles to everyone's faces capturing the laughter (so much laughter) and magic of the day.

Rain or shine, and we had a real mixed bag on our day, Paul's mind is working to get the best shots with what is going on. The rain shots at night were some of our favourite and are beautiful.

Aswell as being fantastic at what he does, Paul has an amazing personality and is hilarious. Everyone loved him and enjoyed speaking to him, it was like having another friend at the wedding.

The result if Paul's hard work are a collection of stunning photos which we will cherish forever.

Thank you Paul you are just lush! 😁

Best photographer ever

What can we say that will do Paul's service justice! From the get go he's been such a bubbly character always checking in with us making sure things are going smoothly. He helped us tweak our timeline to ensure the day was perfect. From our engagement shoot to the wedding day he was like a friend, all our guests absolutely loved him and said he was such a great photographer. We've worked with many photographers over the past year for different shoots and occasions and he is definitely up there with the best. The value for money is unreal, the photos are to die for and we've definitely made a friend for life. To have someone in the wedding industry that is accepting and all for equality is not common but Paul made it happen. We cannot thank him enough and will definitely be back for anniversaries/ family photo shoots. We had so much fun and can't believe it's over but the photos are worth every second. Thank you Paul , wish we could do it all again, we wouldn't change a thing!

Fantastic Wedding Photographer

When we where lucky enough to get Paul's last available Saturday of summer 2023 we where delighted. Paul's communication was great throughout and his template was easy to complete which removed any stress. Paul covered exactly what we asked for and so much more, he worked really hard to get some amazing shots and we received our photo package in good time afterwards. Thank you so much for capturing our special day. We wouldn't have wanted anyone else to do this.
Thanks Danni and Sam.

Worth every penny.

Paul was worth every penny spent.

An incredibly skilled photographer, Paul exceeded expectations for our wedding. His role extended beyond merely capturing photos; he actively orchestrated the day, even quelling my unexpected morning anxiety.

The day after the wedding, we received snapshot photos. To say we are pleased would be a complete understatement. These photos surpassed our expectations, brimming with enchantment and originality. I cannot stress enough how much Paul put everyone at ease whilst still managing to organise photos at a particularly sizable wedding.

Paul remained inconspicuous throughout the day, and the timeless, remarkable photos stand as a testament to his expertise and experience.

I wholeheartedly recommend entrusting Paul with creative control, allowing him to perform his magic.

Utterly amazing

I don’t have enough words to express how grateful we are for Paul. Our wedding photos are 10 times better than we could have ever imagined and we are completely in love with them.
From the minute Paul replied to my initial query email we knew he was the man for the job. Professional yet super friendly. Paul organised a call to discuss all of my questions (there were a lot!) and didn’t make me feel silly for asking some rather stupid ones!! Our final details call was just full of laughs.
On the day, Paul arrived and instantly put everyone at ease, making us all laugh, helping out… even put the hoop in my underskirt!! As a couple, we are not ones for the limelight, yet Paul made us really enjoy it and we really got into it with his guidance and expertise.
The turnaround time was so quick, we received our photos 2 weeks after our wedding.
Every single photo is incredible and they are something that we will treasure forever!
Paul, from the bottom of our hearts thank you so so much for everything!!
