about wedding and couples photography
It’s always been pretty simple for me….
Real connections, real experiences, real stories.
I reckon that’s what it’s all about.
“We’ve just had a look through the photos and we are SOOOOOO HAPPPPPY!! It was like reliving our wedding day all over again! Geez you’re good! Thank you so much!!”
— Sarah and Luke
Let me know when and where you’re getting hitched (and about yourselves and your story too) and I’ll send all the info your way! Packages are priced from $4100.
I’m a big believer in albums — wedding stories deserve to be held onto and passed around and LOVED — and my most popular packages include a freakin awesome album (like this one), along with 10 hours coverage, high res files, and an online gallery to share with friends and family.
For your engagement, anniversary, or just… because. Maybe in that forest you love, or through your favourite streets in town, or where he proposed by the lake… it’s all about you two and your connection.
Christchurch, New Zealand, is home, but I travel to weddings regularly. Wherever your wedding is — in New Zealand or further afield — if there’s a way to get me there I’d love to come. Just get in touch and we’ll make it happen!
“They’re here! And they are PERFECT!!!!!!!!!! So so amazing, you have totally nailed it, Paul!!”
— Dominica and Chris
A BIT ABOUT ME
My name’s Paul, and if there’s a camera around I’m usually much happier behind it than in front! I take pictures – mainly of people and their stories. And there’s no better people/story mashup than a wedding, right?
What else…. I have degrees in design and linguistics… I poach a pretty good egg… I’ve played drums and piano for longer than I’ve had cameras… it’s likely you’ll hear more than one dad joke from me during a conversation…. and I think I’m pretty lucky getting to do what I love for living.

“Just wanted to say thank you again for being so awesome, you were like part of our guest list everyone loved you and commented on how relaxed you were and Colm found you great so we are really delighted. Plus you put up with me so well! Thank you we had the most amazing day and you were just brilliant and I felt so at ease because of you.” — Danielle and Colm
“We absolutely love the photos! Paul has done a fantastic job capturing the personalities, and all our special people and moments. He’s so perceptive and really picked up on what is important. Paul was great to have around on the day, had fab ideas for when we were organising the wet weather option, and importantly was very discreet and relaxed amongst all of the activity. There are so many gorgeous shots in here that help complete our story.” — Ginny and Cameron
