Absolutely amazing! My eldest was shy to start but soon settled because of how lovely you guys are! My youngest on the other hand was a pain but you were so patient and still managed to get some amazing shots! Can’t wait to see them and we will definitely be back! ❤️❤️ More...

my two boys aged 4 and 9 had their photos taken a couple of weeks ago.. I was very happy as I got some lovely images. I can't usually do this as unless it's family my 4 year old doesn't usually pose for pictures so goes to show how relaxed he felt :) thank you !!

me and my daughters recently had a shoot for pictures to update their portfolio and website, my girls (aged 4 and almost 3 yr olds) were quite shy and reluctant to begin with but warmed up after a while, despite this Paul still managed to capture some very beautiful pictures of them. His studio is clean and comfortable, and he and Johanna really put my girls at ease (with a lot of face pulling and tickles and props). I absolutely recommend afterwish for all your photography needs, I love the pictures that were taken. :D More...

Having been a Photographer for a number of years I am often very sceptical of the way other photographers work, you never expect to see the results you like and can get extremely picky, however I shoot Wedding and personally am not interested in hitting other genre's However, I was made to eat my words with Paul and his wife who worked really well together. My Daughter was quite stubborn at first, she knows what she wants to do but they were exceptional at what they do, she soon came around and we had her giggling and laughing, dancing and being silly. She is only 15 months old - Testament to their expertise! They own a small but perfectly equipped studio which was ideal for their target audience and even though they only took our shots today I am extremely confident that we will be looking at some great images having seen previews on the day I can't recommend Afterwish enough having experienced their hospitality today and I have already been talking to people about them, this is a sure sign in my eyes that they did a fantastic job. Pricing is very competitive against the market average and to be honest I am confident I would use Afterwish again in the future as my daughter gets older and even more bossy! Great Job guys - Keep up the great work More...

I came to AfterWish Photography in April and I had great fun! I took my two friends with me which was super fun because we all giggled together! Paul put some music on in the studio so we could dance about and enjoy ourselves while having the photos taken! I highly reccomend this business it was super fun and the photos are incredible quality! More...

These photographs are great! They capture personality and are very natural. Each subject seem very happy and look like they are truly enjoying the shoot. All customers are greeted into their home to use their facilities, offered coffee or tea and led through to a very beautiful studio through a stunning garden. Amazing customer care from start to finish. We were asked if we wanted our favourite music playing to make us feel relaxed which we did! It was amazing. Such a brilliant session. Love this photographer. Well done ‘Afterwish’ Beautiful real pictures each and every one of them. Would highly recommend this experience. More...

Q&A

Try and understand your clients to get an idea for mood and tone of image.
Shoot the moment not the subject.

1. Tell me a bit about yourselves
2. Tell me why you have decided to have your portrait taken.
3. Have you ever hired a photographer before?
4. What is most important about your photographs. Is there something special you want to capture?
5. How are you planning to use the images?
6. Why did you choose Afterwish photography?

What i love most about my job is the art of capturing a moment in time, immortalising a scene or revealing someones true beauty .

I discovered photography around ten years ago starting out with a pocket camera and a laptop.
I had been walking along a beach when i came across a piece of driftwood entangled in some colourful fishing net. I captured the image and was inspired by it's simple beauty. I became passionate in the art of capturing images and the process of transfer to print.Needless to say that i ran out of wall space some time ago!
I now undertake a large proportion of my work in a studio environment with better tools. However i still believe that photography is as much about passion as well as technology which is something that has remained with me from that first day on the beach.

Photography should be fun and creative and i try to reflect this in my work.
