Fun, Stylish, Contemporary Wedding Photography
Wedding Photographer - Barry Paffey LBIPP LSWPP LMPA
I welcome the opportunity of photographing your wedding close to home in Billericay, Essex, or further afield in London and the surrounding counties.
Please read below for more information about my style and approach on a wedding day, the lengths I go to and whether I might match your requirements.
Since becoming a photographer I have photographed more than three hundred weddings at numerous wedding venues throughout Essex and the UK. My wedding photography approach is relaxed, unobtrusive and friendly. Most people say they hate having their photo taken, but I pride myself in putting people at ease no matter what the situation. So I guess you could describe me as a traditional wedding photographer with a light touch. By that I mean I will not ask my couples or their guests to do silly things they are not happy with. So if you are looking for a photographer that will get you to jump in the air or pull funny faces, I am probably not the wedding photographer for you! I believe photography should capture the love and emotion of your wedding day and create a story of everything that happens. With that in mind I normally photograph a mixture of natural un-posed photos (reportage/documentary photography), traditional wedding portraits and posed formal groups. You may choose as much or as little of the style that suits you.
I like to capture the unique spirit of your wedding day and I pay great attention to detail. Starting with the bridal preparations in the morning and all the little things that you have spent so much time and money on such as the flowers, the jewellery, the makeup and hair, etc; through to the wedding ceremony, formal groups, speeches, wedding cake and first dance. I photograph classic wedding portraits, friend & family groups and candid shots of your guests enjoying your wedding day. As a wedding photographer I am acutely aware of the care that must be taken not to overwhelm my clients with too many instructions and too much time away from their guests - I will get great wedding photographs in a relatively short period of time.
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 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 photograph if I thought it would upset somebody in the process. Your wedding day is not a photo shoot, it is meant to be a wonderful experience and something to remember.
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 enquiries. 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 week day, evenings, and some weekends depending on my schedule.
