welcome to the blog

All of the extras below can be added to any package prior to the big day. Please bear in mind that assistants and second photographers can get booked out during busy periods so the more notice given the better. If you have queries about any extras not listed here please contact Paul directly – everything is possible!

Wedding-options-with--wellington-wedding-photographer-paul-howellextra hour of shooting  |  add to any package  |  $250+gst

As it sounds, great for creating custom packages. One extra hour of shooting leads to a large number of extra photographs.

 additional photographer  |  miss nothing  |  contact for details

Essential if you need a photographer in two places at the same time! (Bride/Groom getting ready, etc). Two Photographers during the ceremony will likely double the number and variety of shots and during group shots it frees someone up to continue shooting the editorial style that we all love! Second photographers need to be booked as early as possible and are subject to availability.

 lighting assistant  |  no compromise  |  $250 +gst

The primary job of the lighting assistant is to use reflectors and flash-heads to envelope you in magazine style light during the bridal shoot! As well as that they are there to ensure everything runs smoothly and everyone is where they should be in your photos. Having two sets of eyes has a dramatic effect on the smooth running of the shoot and allows Paul to concentrate on what he does best- the photography. An assistant will be there from your ceremony through to the end of the bridal shoot. Have a look here for more detailed information.

 wedding albums  |  the perfect memento  |  from $467+gst

Albums are the perfect way to tell the story of your day and make a great gift for family and friends. A 30% discount is available for duplicate albums. Available in a number of sizes (see album section below) every album is unique. Examples available on request.

 trash the dress or couple shoot  |  fun and stylish  |  $750+gst

A ‘trash the dress’ or separate couple shoot is perfect if you like the idea of lots of shots of you and your husband/wife but do not want to spend hours away from the party on your wedding day. Think atmospheric mountain top, coastal sunset or just your favourite place to hang out . A “Trash the dress” shoot takes place on a day sometime after your wedding, various locations available, for up to three hours. The dress does not have to be trashed – in fact it almost never is! Travel to locations outside of Wellington city can be quoted. Unlimited images.

prints  |  framed artwork  |  quotes available

If you don’t have the time to print the files that Paul has created, or if family and friends would rather go through Paul directly, please get in touch for a customized quote.

retouching  |  above and beyond  |  $90ph+gst

I supply all wedding photos in b&w and colour edited and retouched for print as part of all packages. If however you require something additional – producing a montage, matching image treatments to photos you have at home, removing objects (cars, tattoos, trees, etc!) from shots, etc, I am happy to undertake this work – get in touch for a quote.

extra km travel – 77c+gst per km
