Hi I’m Paul, an International award-winning photographer from Derby providing story-telling wedding photography. My outlook is to capture your day how it unfolds, documenting everything with a mixture of natural photos and a few portrait images that will look spectacular as a full-page spread in a story book, or hanging on the wall. Maybe both …

I’ve been photographing weddings for around eight years, mainly in the Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Staffordshire areas and further afield in the East Midlands region. There’s also been occasions where I’ve travelled to Cornwall and Devon to capture the weddings of brides, grooms and couples on and along our beautiful UK coastline. I love a good road trip!

Paul also specialises in drone-based aerial imagery and videography for clients around the United Kingdom, having gained his CAA licence seven years ago. It gives Paul the edge in technology and experience within the UAV industry. With his CAA Operational Authorisation (OA) and owning many professional drones, his vast experience will always deliver the best compositions at any wedding, providing a truly different perspective for a wedding day gallery or photo album.

So Why Choose me as your wedding photographer?

Booking your photographer is a big decision and it isn’t just about the style of wedding photography. It’s more about their approach, professionalism and will they fit in with your family and friends. My couples want someone who they can trust, who’s friendly and blends into their wedding day, capturing great photographs with a relaxed approach. Well, this is me, with a little bit of banter throughout the day!

a couple of reviews from my lovely bride & grooms …

Eleanor & Joe

Paul was great to work with before, during and after the wedding and we’re really pleased with our lovely wedding photos and album. Thanks to both Paul and Matt (2nd photographer) they were very professional.

We had our wedding on one of the hottest days in 2021, yet that didn’t affect Paul’s professionalism over and beyond to get us our best shots. It was so lovely to share the day with Paul and he definitely has captured the best memories we’ll cherish forever. Thank you so much!

When getting married we said of all the vendors the photographer was the most important one to us. Everything else makes the day itself brilliant but the photographs are what you keep forever as a momento of the day, and wow are we pleased we chose Paul. We could not be happier with how lovely he was on the day, calm and professional despite hiccups on the part of other suppliers but most importantly really good company. Our guests commented how brilliant he was at blending into the background at times but then how nice of a guy he was when interacting with him. He was helped out on the day by a second photographer Matt who was also brill. If you’re thinking of hiring Paul please please do not hesitate. You will not regret it!

WEDDING, guests AND special moments …

Capturing emotions, interactions and anything else which will last a lifetime of memories. I truly believe wedding photography is all about the natural flow of the day, and won’t be taken over with loads of formal photographs. I’ll also help where I can and regularly be seen fetching, carrying and be there to generally help throughout the day where needed.

My philosophy is about telling the story of a wedding day, and surprising my couples when I deliver your wedding gallery with plenty of natural candid moments.
