“Thank you, Paul, what an amazing job! Paul is everything we could have possibly wanted in a wedding photographer, and more. His talent, passion and dedication were evident when we first met him, and we were confident that he knew exactly what we wanted on the day. On our wedding day he worked relentlessly and captured every moment, right down to the finer details. He was personable and very relaxed. We hardly noticed he was there (a good thing!), he captured so many natural shots, as well as having great ideas for the location shoot, and making it fun. Before and after the wedding, Paul’s service was professional, and he really went the extra mile. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos, they are absolutely perfect. If you need an excellent wedding photographer, then look no further.”

Wedding Photographer Testimonial Wellingotn

“Thank you so much Paul for being our wedding photographer. Your friendly manner and cheerfulness made it a pleasure to have you around. You coped well with a bunch of bossy teachers telling you what to do but it was nice to have you consider our ideas as well as giving your own creative suggestions. Our guests even commented on what a nice guy you were! We are so happy with the photos you have taken. There is a great variety of shots from different parts of the day. It was fun looking back at people’s reactions during the speeches as of course we didn’t really notice these on the day. You took a range of posed and candid photos which is just what we wanted. We think you really caught the feel of the day through your photos. Thanks again.”
