What I do as a wedding photographer (when I’m not taking photos, that is!)
As your wedding photographer, I’d much rather take pressure off you than pile any more on top. And as the person at your wedding who’ll have been to the most weddings, a big part of my job is making sure your day doesn’t tumble down around you!
So while I’m not taking photos, I’ll throw all my energy into making sure the day runs silky-smooth for you. I’ll make sure things go to plan, and keep cool as a cucumber if they don’t! And basically be the ‘what would we have done without him?’ helper you never knew you needed.
What I’m saying is, this isn’t my first rodeo. So kick back, relax, and enjoy your day. We’re in it together, and I’m all over it.

The only little nudge I’ll give you on your wedding day…
As ridiculous as it sounds, my wife and I only have ONE photo of just the two of us together on our wedding day. And it didn’t bother me in the slightest at the time. But 14 years and 3 kids later, I’d give anything for a few nice photos of us when we were only two. So if you’re up for it, let’s ditch the crowds for a while and get some nice shots of just the two of you.
And don’t worry, it’s not a high-pressure photoshoot, and I’m not going to drag you up a hill for endless Hollywood dips! We’ll go for a walk, have a chat, take a breather, and I’ll capture all the small in-between moments that make your relationship what it is. The way you reach for each other’s hands without thinking, the little smiles you give each other as you talk about your day.
Because I know it sounds soppy, but for me that’s the best thing about love. That intimate, vulnerable side of a relationship that only comes out when you’re alone. And on your wedding day of all days, I think that’s worth capturing.

KENT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES
It breaks my heart when couples say to me they’ve never looked good in photos, and are convinced they never will. Because no matter how camera-shy they may be, every couple deserves to have wedding photography they really, genuinely love.
And for me that’s one of the best parts of the job; giving a couple the beautiful wedding photos they’ve always wanted, but never quite believed they could ever have themselves.
Investing in your wedding photographer isn’t just about finding someone whose photos will look good in a frame. It’s about finding someone you can be yourselves around, who’ll capture you as you, and tell your story the way you’ve always wanted it to be told.
If you think that person might be me, get in touch today and let’s find out if we’re a good fit for each other
I'll be there with you for every moment, from getting ready in the morning to the party and shenanigans in the evening.
But every wedding is different, and I'm super flexible when it comes to creating a package that suits your needs. So for smaller weddings and elopements, get in touch with the details and I'll get right back to you with a quote.

What do some of my previous couples say?
Justine and Ben
Paul photographed our wedding on 30th December and was absolutely fantastic. He was everything we wanted from our photographer: there to help organise and get the shots we wanted but equally blended into the background so us and our guests could all enjoy the day. He was professional, friendly and a wonderful calming presence on the day. We cannot thank you enough for your time and support both in the run up and on the day itself. And the quality of the photos!! We’ve had so many compliments and they capture the mood and details perfectly.

“Paul was fantastic in every single way. He is personable, sensitive and acutely aware of his client’s needs. .. he also has some good tips and tricks up his sleeve if you’re camera shy but would still like some staged shots on the day to treasure forever. Paul has a unique eye for detail which means that his photography is smooth, efficient and effortless. At the right moments, Paul blends into the crowd and you wouldn’t even know he was there capturing those key moments, but when you need him, he’s never far away. He kept the spirit of the day alive for us by sending us “sneak peek” photos in the few days after the wedding. This meant the world to us and our family, with whom we spent quality time reminiscing over the most special day of our lives. Our family and friends couldn’t believe how quick, responsive and thoughtful Paul was. Paul was so in tune with our day and everything it meant to us and our families. Not only that, but Paul’s photographs blew everyone away. They were beyond anything we ever imagined. Paul was present from the moment he arrived and he went above and beyond by staying slightly longer than he should have done just to capture one special moment at the request of the bride! We will forever be grateful to Paul for his commitment, hard work, sensitivity and, beyond all else, making us feel at ease in his very capable hands. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone and everyone from our wedding party who has seen his incredible photographs, have already gone to follow him on Instagram. A true gem. Thank you Paul, although words will never truly express our gratitude. With love, the Maddens x.

"Nearly a year on from our Wedding day and I still love and look at our photos every day.
We cannot recommend Paul enough.
We aren't the most comfortable in front of the camera but Paul made us feel relaxed from the offset.
From our first meeting to the big day Paul was there to answer our questions and made us feel comfortable that our photos would be in good hands.
Paul really knows what he's doing and his extra care and attention to detail shines through, his use of light and eye for a moment is impeccable.
We would highly recommend Paul to anyone!
We're a good fit if...
-photos are really important to you, but you don’t want them to become the sole purpose of your day
-You want a relaxed, enjoyable day (with as little stress and pressure as possible!)
-Friends and family are going to be at the heart of your wedding, and having natural photos of them enjoying the day is really important to you
-You want the photos to be beautiful, but the moments themselves to be real
-Group shots with family and friends are a must, but you definitely don’t want to spend too long taking them!
-Your wedding album will be one of your favourite things in the world, and you can’t wait to show it to your children.
