Wellington Wedding photography by Paul Howell » Wellington Wedding, Commercial and Portrait Photographer Paul Howell

Professional photographer Paul Howell

“I have been a professional photographer for my entire life. With first class honours degree in photography, several photographic awards to my name and over fifteen years shooting experience I still absolutely love what I do. Photography has taken me all over the world where I have worked for a multitude of clients and have photographed everything from Architecture and Sports to Natural Disasters for International NGO’s”.

“Since arriving in Wellington New Zealand in 2005 I have worked primarily as a portrait and wedding photographer. Its a privilege to photograph weddings, they are truly magical events and a journalistic photographers dream. I get welcomed into peoples lives to witness events that they will want to remember for ever, and the responsibility is not lost on me – capturing the moment with as little fuss or intrusion as possible is key. I love photographing the magic, the relationships, the sideways glances and nervous giggles. Its about telling your story. I believe in building a strong relationship with the bride and groom, listening to their opinions and producing unique photography they will treasure forever. I produce art-work that reflects the essence of the day. “

“I also co-direct Lightbox Ltd, a commercial photography business also based here in Wellington. At Lightbox we create dynamic commercial imagery for many of Wellingtons industry leading companies.”
