How far in advance should I contact you?
To guarantee me for your wedding date, I would suggest dropping me a line 6 months before. Having said that I'd been booked 3 weeks before a 'shotgun' wedding. The more time you give me the more I can get to know you both and what you'd like from your photographer.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Never. I concentrate 100% on the one wedding of the day so that I get the best shots without stressing you or your guests.
Are you able to travel?
More than happy to travel. I'll budget the costs in to the package. I'm no diva so a cheap B&B will do for me.
What is the charge for travelling?
If the venue is more than 2 hours away from Godalming, I usually ask for a B&B and mileage to be included in the costs.If you're getting married abroad, then we can chat about travel and board.
What style of photos do you take?
I pride myself on the documentary style of photography I take. I capture the emotions and details of the day without becoming part of it. Always respectful of those around me I try and blend into the background but be in the right place at the right time.
What kind of technology do you use?
I'm obviously a DSLR photographer but I also bring some portable studio lights to give those staged shots some extra punch.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
I'll add a private gallery for you to look through.
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
I remember how keen I was to see my own wedding photos so I aim to deliver them ASAP. Usually with a couple of weeks, but if I have time I can get them to you within the week.
Do you send all the photos taken?
I edit out all the blinkers, gurners and 'sneezers' and work up all the best shots and deliver them to you in both hi and low resolution. Hi Res so you can print them yourselves and Low res so you can easily post them on your social feeds or share with family and friends.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I Usually work alone but can provide an additional photographer to capture even more of the day. If the wedding is a large affair, I sometimes bring an assistant.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
The last thing you need is to stress that you won't have a photographer there with you. If by some act of 'God' I can't make it (Never happened yet) then I'll send over a trusted replacement.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I charge per event but if you require me to stay on an capture the party after the first day then I do charge £100 per hour.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
The job is never a clock in - clock out affair. Wedding rarely run to 'military' timing. If the day is running late I always stay on to capture the first dance.
What are the forms of payment?
I ask for 20% deposit on signing the contract between us then the final payment 4 weeks before the wedding date.

Captured the love and laughter
I contacted Paul to photograph my wedding with only a short amount of notice and really couldn’t have been any more delighted with the experience.Sent on 10/12/2018
Paul was so professional and lovely to work with, I felt straight away that her photos were in safe hands. Paul was great on the day and the images are just stunning. He completely captured the love and laughter on the day and all in a very natural way.
Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for beautiful natural wedding pictures.
We could not be happier with the quality and originality of the photographs that Paul took on my daughter's wedding day. From our first meeting, he understood exactly the style the couple were looking to achieve, he proactively visited the venue to get to know the potential locations for photographs and the quality of light he could expect to achieve. On the day he was prompt, he was discreet and captured all aspects of the day for us beautifully. Paul instantly puts you at ease, and gives you confidence that he can deliver what he says, something that is very important for those very precious moments in your life. We do not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.Sent on 06/12/2018
Creative, patient and everyone loved him.
My wife and I cannot recommend Paul enough as a wedding photographer! From the very first meeting he put us at ease with his friendly approachable manner. He visited our venue ahead of the day and came up with some great locations for some shots a bit different to the norm which we wanted. On the day everybody loved him! He couldn't do enough to get the shots we were after with a great deal of patience as members of our family had to be tracked down and dragged for shots. After the wedding he sent through the edited shots within 1 week which we were gobsmacked by! And they are stunning with shots we did not expect which were a delightful surprise.Sent on 05/12/2018
