Having studied photography to MA level, Paul began his career as a wedding photographer in the North East before moving to Harrogate, North Yorkshire. He has built up a fantastic portfolio of wedding photography at some of the most prestigious wedding venues across Harrogate, Yorkshire and further afield.
Paul creates timeless photography with a modern, creative twist. He blends traditional and contemporary reportage wedding photography to produce a relaxed feel to your imagery. His contemporary style reflects his experience in photojournalism and fine art photography.
He often works with the architecture of the venue or the natural surroundings to produce original and atmospheric images that capture the spirit of each individual wedding. Paul strives to create a truly personal feel to every wedding he shoots, working to your exact brief. This means those 'trendy shots' and forced poses are absent from his portfolio.
One of the secrets of successful wedding photography is careful planning and Paul works closely with the bride and groom to ensure that every detail is covered. He meets couples before the wedding at least twice, including a consultation and a meeting at the venue which includes a pre-wedding shoot. This helps to put the bride and groom at ease and ensures that everything runs smoothly on the day. After the wedding, couples can work with him to help design their own album and with face-to-face or online proofing, they can have as much or as little involvement in the process as they wish.
Most weddings benefit from two photographers as Paul works alongside a female wedding photographer. This allows additional photos to be captured, from two different angles without taking up more time. Brides also find it helpful to have a female photographer available for those 'getting ready' shots.
