” We are both extremely happy with all the photos – your presence on the day was extremely professional, and unobtrusive. You managed to organise the group shots in a fun way and looking at some of the photos, I was totally unaware that you were taking them at the time. Many many thanks for being part of our day – you were a welcome guest! “
A long standing member of both the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers and the British Professional Photographers Association, Peterborough based wedding photographer Paul Young has been shooting weddings professionally in the UK and overseas since 2002, picking up a number of awards for his images in that time and establishing himself as preferred supplier to the majority of Peterborough’s most prestigious wedding venues.
One of the first fully digital wedding photographers established in the Eastern Counties, Paul is totally at ease with the very latest digital technology, shooting with top of the range Canon cameras and lenses.
“My goal at every wedding is to capture the true essence and character of your wedding day and that means images that capture and hold some of the emotions that were present on the big day. I love it when couples come back to me and say the images made them smile …… but I love it even more if they come back and say they made them cry !
Arrival at the venue, signing the register, walking back down the aisle, the formal shots with family and friends, etc are all important parts of the day but they are not the only parts. The laughter, the tears, the hugs, the cute kids, the quiet moments, the party moments, the decorations, the location and much, much more all contribute to making every wedding day special and I will capture those for you too ….. indeed that is my speciality !
Some of the best moments from your day will be unplanned, unscripted and totally spontaneous and my skill is in anticipating those moments and being there to capture them ……. even if the subjects are oblivious to the fact that I’m capturing them !
The end product will be a portfolio that really was your wedding day, not a part of it but all of it, and my hope is that it will provide you with the sort of photographic memories that you will really enjoy looking at for the rest of your lives.”
