A professional wedding photographer in Peterborough since 2008, Paul David Smith specialises in capturing beautiful images which tell your story and preserve the precious memories of your very special day.
Working throughout Peterborough, across the UK and abroad, Paul’s style of photography would best be described as fun, quirky and romantic. He is a man who likes to laugh and get involved with your day with a mixed style of reportage photography which ensures those natural off the cuff moments aren’t missed, and fun creative portraiture which offers the chance to capture once in a lifetime photographs as lasting memories of your wedding.
Every Photograph Professionally Edited
When it comes to delivering high quality wedding photographs, being there on the day to photograph the wedding is only half the job, a lot of the magic happens in the post processing stage whilst you are on your honeymoon!
Paul will professionally edit each and every individual photograph from your wedding day with his own style to really make your images pop. This could involve adding a pre-agreed colour style (vintage / retro / B+W, etc.), making exposure adjustment or emphasizing key features.
You Want To Print Your Photographs On A Billboard?
You will receive the final images as a mixture of colour and black and white photographs (sometimes both so you can decide which you like best yourself) delivered on a USB stick within 4 weeks of your wedding day.
The images from your wedding would be granted to you with an “All Purpose, All Media” usage license which means you are free to use the images in any way you desire for as long as you desire and places no restrictions upon their personal usage for you.
These files will be in a high resolution .jpg format and should you wish to do so, you really could print them onto the side of a billboard… no excuses for not doing this for Valentine’s Day now guys!
What If It All Goes Pear Shaped?
Could you imagine if your wedding photographer got to your venue, tried to switch their camera on and nothing happened…. It is every photographer’s nightmare and something they “should” be prepared for. Paul carries two professional grade DSLR Canon cameras at all time and leaves a third in his car. He has multiple batteries, memory cards and lenses ensuring if the worse did happen and something failed, he could swiftly and easily continue to photograph your day immediately.
Should you be getting married in stately home or such venue, they will often require your photographer to have insurance in place in-case they swing their tripod around and knock over some priceless Ming vase. Paul has full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance to the value of £5million as required by venues in Peterborough such as, Burghley House, Longestow Hall and National Trust venues.
Can I Have Some Amazing Portraits Done On The Day?
Part of what sets Paul aside from other photographers is his creativity and passion with portraits of the bride & groom on their wedding day. Whether you book him for a half day or to cover your entire wedding Paul will always include a portrait session with you both, making use of your wedding venue and surrounding areas.
You can expect a range of shots together, and maybe a couple of individual ones too. Individual bridal portraits are always popular and something Paul specialises in, have a look at a selection of his bridal portraits here.
Paul is able to provide a photo booth / pop up studio to keep you and your guests entertained at your wedding and encourage everybody to get involved and have fun. You can find out more about this twist on the traditional photo booth here.
A £350 deposit is required to book your wedding date. Your booking isn’t confirmed until this payment is cleared and the remainder of the balance is required 4 weeks prior to your wedding date.
Paul asks each and every couple to sign a wedding photography contract in order to protect both parties. You can see an example of his typical wedding contract here.
