FROM LOVELY PEOPLE
There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.
Looking through our wedding pictures again coming up to our anniversary, I am remembering how great Paul was for us on our Wedding day, so I wanted to say a little about how he captured our day beautifully.
I had a few requests for individual shots I wanted, and Paul was amazing to fulfill them all. The style we liked was natural, documentary-style photographs and he captured some great candid shots for us! Everything we asked for Paul made an effort to achieve. For example, in discussions we had before the wedding I sent him an example of a picture of children playing on the swing at Broadoaks Country House where we got married, and he managed to spot and take the pretty picture when the opportunity came along, he was very observant and had to be quick to capture things like this, he thought of our needs throughout the day and it shows when we look at our wedding pictures.
Paul has the skill to accommodate different styles, and with enthusiasm! Another example, I didn’t notice this on the day, but in one picture which was taken by a guest, you can see him a little way up a tree getting a good angle of us all whacking the piñata!
When it comes to the typical wedding photographs, like the group pictures, Paul was great at helping arrange and plan this all beforehand. He guided us on how many group shots to take from the experience he has with the time management of this, and took steps to help us have this and other parts of the day planned well to save on such valuable time! Some of my favourite pictures were from the group shots, you can see that even all the kids are looking at the camera, which was definitely down to him being inventive in capturing their attention, and is some achievement in my opinion!
The planning we did together beforehand was crucial to the day, and Paul made it all so easy for us. We will always be extremely happy with the beautiful photographs Paul captured for us, and would just like to say a massive thank you!
To those currently planning a wedding I would say if you’re going to pay for a professional photographer please don’t skimp on the research. Look at what they have done before and remember that just because you’ve met them it doesn’t mean that you’re obliged to choose them. Go with your instinct and any photographer that cannot cater for your needs or that tries to pressurise you to choose them for your big day probably isn’t right for you.
Paul was the best and even catered for the doggies and just proves that if you’re passionate about what you do for your work it will always show in the end result. My photos are amazing and truly show the fun and excitement of the day. Everyone loves them and I have photographs that will forever be a reminder of my amazing day.
Paul is always readily available if you have any queries or comments and he made me feel the no request was too much. He is very supportive, has a good eye and is very professional what more could you want from a photographer?
Paul is a very delightful, knowledgeable and professional photographer who has a very relaxed and flexible manner. He worked around what we needed, which made us relaxed and worry-free. The planning meetings we had went smoothly and Paul was able to offer good suggestions on top of what we wanted. He certainly was not one of these regimented photographers who barked orders at everyone.
We used Paul for our pre-wedding shoot, wedding, and more recently a couple’s portrait shoot. All times we have met with Paul it has been fun-filled and easy-going without any fuss. The wedding pictures we had done where amazing and so natural we have lots of pictures to look at and relive the magical day.
We can’t thank Paul enough for the hard work he put in on the day itself and then putting the sideshow together the finished albums we chose from a great selection of images are fantastic. Once again, thanks, Paul.
