My approach is to help everyone feel comfortable and to capture the day in an unobtrusive way.

Hi, my name is Paul and I'm based in Wimbledon. I'm an award-winning documentary wedding photographer, I photograph weddings in and around London, the UK & The South East. After many years pursuing my passion, as a travel & documentary photographer I now specialise in wedding photography. Being in front of a camera might not always be easy but it should be fun – especially on your wedding day.

My approach is to help everyone feel comfortable and to capture the day in an unobtrusive way. My professional attitude, artistic talent and friendly guidance will assure that your photographs look natural, expressive and capture those most special moments. For group shots, I make everyone feel as natural and relaxed as possible, ensuring the photos contain nothing but beautiful smiles. For candid photos I'll act as unobtrusively as possible, to capture the true essence of the day, at 6'2" you wont notice I'm there!
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.

I offer extensive coverage throughout the wedding day including a free pre-wedding consultation, custom made presentation boxes, and plenty more options for you. You can customise each of my wedding packages so the only thing you'll have to worry about when hiring me, is whether I'm not already been booked. 

While working as a freelance photographer, I also 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, I have been a photographer for over twenty years. 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. Paul

While working as a freelance photographer, I also worked as a manager in the hospitality industry which gives me an insight into what else could be going on during your special day.

Paul was the perfect photographer at our wedding. Given Covid restrictions we weren't able to meet Paul before the wedding and didn't give him much of a brief when we spoke via video call, but he seemed to know exactly what we wanted on the day! He was completely unobtrusive, but seemed to have a sixth sense for capturing the perfect moment. He was friendly, down-to-earth and put us and our guests at ease straight away. We're so pleased with our photos and keep reliving the magic of the day through them. We couldn't have wished for a better photographer for our wedding. Highly recommend.

We can’t recommend Paul highly enough. Trying to reschedule a wedding due to Covid with two days to go isn’t easy but Paul was one of the providers who moved his diary around to make sure he could cover our wedding as planned. And we were delighted he did. His, professional, fun and discreet style was appreciated by us and our guests and the resulting photos are amazing! Your search for a photographer is over - book Paul.

Paul's own description is exactly that: "My approach is to help everyone feel comfortable and to capture the day in an unobtrusive way." He was our photographer for a French wedding where not all guests spoke English but even then he was so kind and helpful, going with the flow when he himself didn't understand what people were saying. Seizing every opportunity to take natural pictures and sometimes giving just enough suggestions to make beautiful ones. Thank you Paul. Sarah & Jerome

We cannot thank Paul enough for the amazing job on our wedding day! From the moment we first had contact with Paul we knew he would be the perfect photographer for our big day. We loved his previous work and natural style of photography and ability to capture the beauty in a moment. Paul managed to capture so many amazing moments of our wedding and allowed us to see parts of our day that we didn't even notice ourselves. The photos are just amazing and tell the story of our day so perfectly. Paul made everything feel smooth with brilliant communication to top it all. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photography and would recommend Paul 100 times over! Sylviane & Francis

We couldn't have been happier with Paul and his work. His care and attention to detail went above and beyond our expectations on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year.His friendly attitude and helpful suggestions really made the whole experience easy and his professionalism was reflected in the quality of the photos we received. We definitely have no hesitation in recommending him and would use him without doubt for another event. We had an amazing wedding and Paul made a huge contribution to it. Many thanks, Martin & Chalo
