Essex Wedding Photographer - Barry Paffey LBIPP LSWPP

Searching for a Wedding Photographer in Essex can be a difficult task as there are so many of us to choose from. I live and work from home in Billericay near Chelmsford and have been photographing weddings for many years. During this time I have photographed weddings at numerous Essex Wedding Venues and quite a few in neighbouring counties. You can find more than one hundred examples of my work from various wedding venues by clicking this link to my blog.

Although I am based in Essex I also regularly photograph weddings in Kent, Surrey, Hertfordshire, London and all over the UK.

My wedding photography approach is relaxed, unobtrusive and friendly. I normally photograph a mixture of classic wedding portraits, natural portraits, posed groups and reportage/candid photographs. You may choose as much or as little of the style that suits you best.

My wedding photos speak for themselves so please take a look at my wedding photography ‘Gallery’ for examples of my work. Also please take the time to read what my forma clients say about my wedding photography on the ‘Testimonial’ page.

I am not the cheapest wedding photographer in Essex, but what I do offer is very good value for money and a service that is second to none. For all the information you need about the services available and prices please take some time to read my wedding photography ‘Price Guide’.

To avoid disappointment can I please ask you to contact me using the 'Contact' page link above to check my availability for your proposed wedding date. Alternatively, please feel free to call me on 01277 655169 or Mob: 07825 789185. I will normally reply within 24 hours to email inquiries. If I am available for your wedding date then it is best to arrange a mutually convenient meeting. This can be at your home or mine where you can view sample wedding albums and discuss your wedding day plans in detail. I can visit any day of the week, evenings and some weekends depending on my schedule.

I am a wedding photographer, not a sales person, so you can rest assured that you will not be pressured into something that you are not entirely comfortable with.

Finding the right Wedding Photographer

There are a bewildering number of Wedding Photographers in Essex and thousands more if you include Kent, London and the surrounding areas. So how do you go about choosing the right wedding photographer for you? Is it their style you go for, price, quality of work or experience. Well of course it is all of those things, but the most important thing is that you like them as a person. I have heard far too many horror stories about wedding photographers ordering guests around, barging people out of the way and being just downright rude to get the picture they wanted. Please rest assured I am not like that. I would much rather not get that award winning wedding photo if I thought it would upset someone in the process. Your wedding day is not a photo shoot, it is meant to be a wonderful experience and something to remember. As a wedding photographer I'm acutely aware of the care that must be taken not overwhelm my clients with tons of instructions and hours away from their guests. I can get great wedding photographs in a relatively short period of time.

So even if you do not choose me as your wedding photographer here are some things to look out for:

  1. Make sure he or she is insured for public liability and personal indemnity.
  2. Make sure the photographer is qualified with at least one of the three main photography associations in this country: BIPP, MPA or SWPP, preferably in 'Wedding Photography'.
  3. Make sure the photographer is using professional cameras and equipment and has a backup plan should something fail.
  4. There must be a system for backing up you wedding files both onsite and offsite (cloud storage etc.).
  5. It is a good idea to make sure the photographer is full time to insure maximum effort is put into producing the best wedding images possible.
  6. The photographer can provide genuine testimonials from previous clients as some proof of competence.
  7. The photographer has a data protection policy.

I do hope this all helps and may I wish you all the very best for your wedding and your future together.
