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

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 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

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 so nearly didn’t book a photographer for our wedding, these days everyone has a great camera on their phone, and who wants someone trying to herd reluctant friends and relatives into groups and then getting in your face all day? We are so pleased we hired Paul to be the photographer at our wedding. Not only was he good to his word, so inconspicuous as to be virtually invisible, but the results of his work are fabulous. Yes, we’ve been sent masses of pictures taken by guests and some are excellent, but Paul seems to have captured the magic of the day, and his images are full of the emotions, happiness, joy, laughter and even a few tears. Each picture tells a little story of one particular moment in our day. Thank you Paul, you have given us permanent memories that otherwise would have slowly faded. Ant & Anna

We hired Paul for our son’s 1st birthday. Paul provided a very professional service and the final images captured the day perfectly. We would recommend Paul to anyone looking for a professional photographer including for Asian / Indian weddings as his service was on par with well know professionals we have used from that industry.

We hired Paul for our wedding ceremony and cannot thank him enough, he was the overall package. Not only were the photos amazing, Paul was like one of the guests, everyone loved him. His entire service from the first meeting to the day itself and afterwards when we received our photos was excellent. I would definitely use Paul again and would highly recommend his services for any occasion.

Paul was just brilliant! We loved the candid nature of his photos and chose him right away. He worked closely with us and captured our wants and needs perfectly; we really didn't want too many posed photos and he didn't try to nudge us in another direction. Everybody at the wedding commented on what a lovely man he is, put everyone at ease and managed to capture some really special moments. Highly recommended!

The photos are Paul took are amazing, we love each and every single one of them! Thank you sooo sooooooo much for everything and thank you for being part of our beautiful day, it wouldn't have been the same without you. Everybody loved it and they said how nice Paul is too. We cannot thank him enough. I promise is there is any events coming up and we need someone for photos I will get in touch for sure.

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 cant recommend him highly enough!

30 Jun 2017

Paul is astoundingly professional in all aspects. He has some great ideas to capture special moments. Top quality photographer at a very reasonable rate! Very cheerful personality! Everyone at the event was very pleased with him. Looking forward to working with him again!

I found Paul, via a website designed to match people looking for professionals in their local area. And what a find! We arranged to meet (he came to us) for a non-committal chat, to which he brought along a very impressive catalogue of his previous appointments. We hit it off immediately; Paul is open, honest, friendly and upfront about expectations and costs. Included in his total price were a committal to the entire day, approximately 500 photos, a USB stick delivered in a bespoke presentation box, a bespoke presentation coffee table book and the option of setting up a website that friends and family could access for no extra cost. His fees are very reasonable, his service excellent and his organisation beyond fantastic. Prior to our wedding, we signed the necessary contract, which apart from the legalities, also gave us options: "Do you have any particular photo scenarios that you'd like?", "Do you have any particular editing requirements?" etc...On the day itself, Paul was absolutely amazing; I really cannot emphasise enough how truly brilliant he was. He was sent here and there with no complaints, gave us suggestions, and even gave us a lift to our venue, when I'd forgotten to book transport! One of his requirements is to have a meal provided; we included him in our seating plan, joining us for our wedding meal, because he was not only more than welcome, but such an important part of our day. I cannot recommend Paul highly enough; just hire him - you won't regret it, and you'll thank your lucky stars that you did. Believe me. Thank you, Paul, for everything.

Paul did an amazing job taking photos for our wedding. Throughout the day he was discreet android managed to capture not only all our guests but every special moment. He was creative and easy to work with. My husband and I couldn't recommend Paul more highly. He really is an exceptional wedding photographer!

22 Dec 2016

Paul greatly contributed to the success of my wedding day by capturing the joy, happiness and laughter of the occasion through his discrete but wonderfully natural and candid photography. He orchestrated the family and group shots effectively - encouraging the right groups to form together. I am very happy with the results and highly recommend his work.
