Wedding Photographer ~ Barry Paffey

Hi, I’m Barry, a wedding photographer living and working from home in Billericay, Essex. I have been interested in photography and all its forms for longer than I care to say. About eleven years ago whilst working as a licensed aircraft engineer I set myself the goal to turn my interest in photography into a career. Having fulfilled my ambition I have now been a full-time photographer for just over eight years. In that time I have photographed more than four hundred weddings and numerous social events. Therefor, I can safely say I’ve seen just about everything that can happen at a wedding or event.

Wedding Photography Qualifications

I am a qualified member of MPA (Master Photographers Association). I also have a Licentiate qualification with of the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography) and the SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers) in wedding and portrait photography. In 2014 I won the London and Essex Professional Photography Group Photographer of the Year Award.

To be honest, it really doesn’t matter whether I have any qualifications or not. You can see for yourself the kind of wedding photographs I take. If you like what you see and want to know more, then please do arrange to come and see me. Alternatively, if it’s easier and you’re not too far away I am happy to visit you.


You have probably noticed that your friends take great pictures of you, that’s because you trust them and that’s how I approach my photography, by being someone that you can trust!

What makes a wedding photographer click….

Being a Wedding Photographer is without doubt one of the best jobs in the world and photographing weddings is a fantastic privilege. Seeing brides, and sometimes grooms, with a tear in their eye after viewing their wedding photos gives me an immense feeling of pride that you just don’t get in most other professions; well not the ones I have been involved with. As for the future I am always looking to improve and find new and innovative ways to create fantastic images. I regularly attend seminars with some of the top trainers in the wedding photography business and I am a firm believer that you are never too old to learn something new or try something different.

Finally, the only real way to see how passionate I am about wedding photography is to meet me. So if you are looking for a wedding photographer in Essex or for that matter anywhere in the south east please do arrange a consultation, I am not pushy and you will not be forced into something you not entirely happy with; I really am a really friendly guy.
