I love what I do. I know every other photographer says exactly the same thing, but I do. I have been using cameras and photographing people since I was 16. I took an art class and tried black and white photography. I saw the magic of a print developing right before my eyes and I was hooked. I mean really obsessed. I love photography so much it has genuinely taken over my life.
I completed a degree in Photography and Digital Imaging and started assisting photographers in London. Subsequently I started taking commercial commissions but it was only when I reluctantly agreed to “shoot a friends wedding as a favour” that my enthusiasm and energy suddenly rushed back into my image making. I realised that there are so many different aspects to wedding photography that my creativity could flourish. I was hooked!
I get asked all the time “what made you want to become a wedding photographer?”.
I always give the same answer, I always go to work with a smile on face, because I know everyone is going to be happy. Whatever the weather, two people are going to enjoy the best day ever with their friends and family!
Your big day is our big day and our promise to you is that you will get the care and attention that will exceed your expectations. I am incredibly passionate about what I do and I think marriage is the best thing ever!”
I have been married to Helen since 2006 and we have two kids who are our everything. Together we run Paul Talbot Photography and we see our brides and grooms as an extension of our family.
