Wellington-based Wedding Photographer Paul Howell has been shooting professionally for over 20 years. Paul has built up a trusted and well-known reputation in and around Wellington NZ, photographing weddings throughout Wellington, the Wairarapa and Kapiti – there aren’t too many venues that he is not familiar with;-) A photojournalist at heart, Paul is always looking for that magical moment – a sideways glance, a giggle, a hug – the things that make weddings (and life) so special. Paul loves what he does, allows you to be yourself and encourages fun. Simply put, relaxed people enjoying themselves make awesome photos! Have a look at Paul’s photography blog for recent examples of his work and the wedding photography testimonials page to hear about how he works first hand. You can also use the search bar at the bottom of this page to see examples of Pauls work at many Wellingtons wedding venues. If you are planning your wedding and would like some face to face information, Paul is always happy to meet for a coffee and a chat at your convenience.

Custom packages are available.
