Documentary Wedding Photography

A wedding photographer that makes your wedding day about you.

Natural, candid, reportage styled documentary photographs, finding the real story of your day.

“My style is a natural and easy way of seeing life with a kind, gentle and humorous way”.

If there’s emotional moments, my photography style is sympathetic to the situations that can occur on a wedding day, showing the reality of the moment with artistically considered documentary wedding photographs that are non intrusive.

Then we can go crazy with the party and I can also bring music to your photographs through designing a still image film created with your photographs accented with music.

I have an eye for photographic artwork that can’t be repeated and comes from a visual desire to be playful with people / environment photography as a medium.

While you’re partying, I’m people watching and studying the environment, seeking out creative ways to make photographic art work.

I always try to avoid using flash and only occasionally for portraits, dependant up on the light, which is a less intrusive style that gives you the freedom to be yourselves and get fantastic memories from the photographs.

“What you’ll find with my photography is that I’m a great story teller”.

I’ll look for the humour and bring the laughs to life through the many different individual stories.

My black and white work is emotive, with a classic style of documentary that is completely unstaged.

You’ll get a nice mixture of both colour and black and white photographs in your final collection.

All of my work is delivered within four weeks on a digital hard drive, albums up to 8 weeks.

My photography style is quirky, playful, unique and best of all, I’ll give you a set of photographs that you’ll treasure.

You can have either a digital package or have a stylish story book designed for you with a few extra really cool creative products.

We used Paul Hands for our wedding day as official photographer. Some other photographers we had met before didn’t want to vary away from their tried-and-tested methods, which made us feel our day would be very generic. From the first meeting, Paul was very interested in listening to our ideas for our day as well offering his own very helpful suggestions. He explained he wanted to capture the intricate and important details from the day. By the time we received our wedding album it was clear he stuck to his word on this. The photos are a beautiful collection which bring back memories of our big day every time we look at them. Through the whole process, Paul was very easy to work with and shared our excitement for our day. We found the pricing to be more than reasonable and the quality was not sacrificed (honestly, photographs from friends and family are great but just dont compare). I would definitely recommend Paul Hands.
