Do you want to tell more engaging stories in your Wedding Photography?

My 1-2-1 training could be the thing you’re looking for!


I’ve been a photojournalist for 20 years, covering worldwide news including wars, natural disasters, Royalty and celebrities for The Times newspaper in London. In 2012, I started using the same techniques to tell beautiful stories at weddings. The method I’ve developed has it’s beginnings with the work of some of the World’s best documentary photographers such as David Hurn, Alex Webb and William Albert Allard.

I’ll show you how to use the same techniques in your own wedding photography. It will make your stories stronger and give your clients an amazing record of their day. And you’ll be a happier wedding photographer.

“Through Paul’s wisdom of documentary photography I was able to gain an enhanced insight of how to tell a better visual story. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back for more of his constructive critique to help improve my photo-journalism. Thank you.”




Documentary Wedding Photographer Adam de-Ste-Croix

“Many claim to be wedding photojournalists but Paul is world class and applies this style to weddings in a way few others do. Paul holds nothing back, and shares all his knowledge and wisdom on how to anticipate and see moments that are about to happen, how to improve composition and layers to make better story telling pictures, and just generally upping your game. Simply put, if you want to be a better documentary wedding photographer, a 1 to 1 session with Paul is the best investment you can make.”
