Full Description
Paul has been a Teacher of Art and Design and Photography for the last 10 years, specialising in Three-dimensional design and creative imaging. Paul’s artistic background has helped him create a style of photography, ideally suited to weddings, creating exiting imaginative images with a contemporary feel. Paul has developed a relaxed, informal style of photography, capturing the day as it happens resulting in natural shots that best match the atmosphere of the wedding day. Paul takes a large number of images on the wedding day then alters the best images using digital imaging techniques, creating unique images in black and white, colour and sometimes a mixture of both. Paul keeps the whole process very simple providing simple ‘Packages’ starting from £400 up to £850 for the Full Package (All day Photography including Album and Disc of Prints)
