DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

STAFFORDSHIRE UK

Welcome and thank you for landing on my website!

Firstly congratulations on your engagement! I’m Paul a documentary wedding photographer with the amazing job of capturing beautiful moments for you to cherish for the rest of your lives. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredible couples and seen some amazing places along the way, loving almost every minute of it. It makes no difference to me if you’re getting married in your back garden or a historic castle i’d be honoured to be a part of your new adventure.

No stress, just relax, enjoy your day and forget i’m even there….

My documentary style has a relaxed approach allowing the bride and groom to be themselves while I document their wedding day to get those ‘real moment’ images. I don’t believe in staging everything so no cheesy images or awkward face pulling, just good creative, fun photography with me working away in the background capturing your story as the day unfolds.

Preparation  •  Documenting  •  Creativity  •  Professionalism

From the start to when the dancing shoes are donned..

I like to start early, engaging with my couples from the moment they’re getting ready right until the dancing is well and truly bouncing. I tend to find that throughout the day my couples become used to my presence and are more relaxed as the day pans out. Applying this method of working allows me to tell ‘your story’ and produce some fabulous images for you to treasure and share!

Documentary photography, what does this mean?…

Documentary photography, photojournalism, reportage photography call what you will but the approach is the same. In essence a documentary photographer will capture ‘real moments’ as they unfold. There’s obviously a lot more than just walking around and clicking away, a lot of skill is required and a documentary wedding photographer with a trained eye will be able to document your day the way it happened.

Creative and fun…

Interacting with couples allows me to be creative and also it let’s us both have fun whilst doing so. All couples are somewhat unique. Some like to be creative and try out my suggestions, whereas other couples are just as happy to have the formal portrait images and ask me to carry on documenting their day. I will be as creative as I can throughout the day too, creating images from various compositions.

My approach…

My approach is professional yet informal and will attend your wedding day smartly dressed (unless told otherwise) and smelling good! I’m easy to get on with and  i’ll mix with your guests throughout the day, getting amongst the action to capture those unseen moments. If the planned schedule takes a different direction on the day I’ll do my upmost to adapt to the situation to ensure we get those images.

PROFESSIONAL EDITING

Your digital images provided from your wedding day will be professionally edited to a high standard and were possible a little creativity applied.

All the images you receive will be personally individually edited by me and not outsourced to an editing company.

A FEW KIND WORDS….

We cannot recommend Paul enough! He joined us at our wedding reception at The Mount Hotel in Tettenhall, following on from getting married abroad, and wanted a mixture of formal and natural shots of our night celebrating with family and friends. The photos are absolutely amazing, they capture the night so well, we really are over the moon with them all. Paul is a really nice guy, people have commented on how friendly he was on the night, and everyone loves the pictures. We had all of the photos put on to a USB, and Paul printed some of the favourites off too which was a really nice touch, and they were all presented in a beautiful folder. We can’t thank you enough for capturing fantastic memories with our nearest and dearest that we will be able to look back on forever – Emily & Neil

We found Paul’s website after searching on the internet for a photographer who would fit into our day and provide us with images that told our story. The initial conversation with Paul told us he was the right person for us and we are sooooo glad he was. Paul was professional and friendly but best of all, our images are are fantastic. – Hannah & Alex

We had Paul as a second shooter and initially we didn’t think a second shooter would be extra beneficial. We were wrong!! It meant we had Ben with the girls party in the morning and the lads had Paul. He was great; friendly, relaxed, professional and captured the morning perfectly. It meant our memories are of the complete day. During the day then we had two photographers capturing their unique style photos and felt it improved our overall photo selection for our favourites. Paul’s photos were excellent, he has a way of blending in and almost invisible on the day, but seems to capture some beautiful moments and some lovely natural shots. One of our favourite photos of all was one of Paul’s so we are very grateful. I would happily recommend Paul as a second shooter or also a solo photographer, he is brilliant. Daniel Sydall
