Choosing your Dorset wedding photographer
Your wedding day is a special event, shared with those who care most about you, so it is only natural that you need a photographer who cares about your day just as much as you do.
As a creative, passionate, professional wedding photographer based in the beautiful surroundings of Dorset, I am happy to work locally, across the UK or even abroad as part of your wedding team, tailoring my service to be as unique as you are.
A limit on the number of weddings I photograph each year lets me give all the passion, creativity, flair and energy your special day deserves.
With a positive and inclusive attitude towards all kinds of weddings, whether they are religious ceremonies, civil partnerships or same sex marriages, traditional or alternative in style, each one is valued as a wonderful and unique celebration of love between two people.
Capturing and perfecting your wedding story
This is one of the most important days of your life, so allow me to tell the true and spontaneous story of your special day as it unfolds.
With many years experience as a photojournalist and documentary wedding photographer, I have an instinctive eye for those impromptu moments and the ability to anticipate what is coming next, ensuring the most important memories from your wedding day will be preserved forever.
Weddings are a deeply personal and unique way for couples to share their love for each other with family and friends that wedding photographers, are privileged to not only witness, but to participate in, preserving those key moments and details from your big day just as you remember them.
For stress free wedding photography, you can relax knowing that choosing me, a sense of calm and humour means even the most camera-shy guest will be photographed naturally, with their personality shining through. So, set all nerves aside when you entrust me to carefully capture the joyful and intimate moments of your wedding day.
“We’ve been told by plenty of people that they are the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen! Paul is so easy going and made us both feel so comfortable having our photo taken.. Paul captured the day’s emotions perfectly and our expectations were completely exceeded. If you’re looking for natural, real, beautiful photos, Paul is the photographer for you, we couldn’t recommend him enough!”
– Ashleigh & James
Wedding photography on your big day
On the day, I arrive at an agreed time and location, following no set pattern and using my experience and instinct, I begin to capture the anticipation, the excitement, the love and the laughter happening all around. Almost unnoticed, I will be discretely moving amongst you and your guests, seeking the best moments that deserve to be preserved on camera forever.
Creatively documenting your wedding day, I capture the unguarded emotions, the precious moments, the happy tears and the raucous laughter of your special day. It is a pleasure to use my passion and skill to put you at ease, enabling the true essence of your wedding day to be beautifully captured.
