A professional wedding photographer in Peterborough since 2008, Paul David Smith specialises in capturing beautiful images which tell your story and preserve the precious memories of your very special day.

Working throughout the UK and abroad, Paul’s style of photography would best be described as fun, quirky and romantic.

Part of what sets Paul aside from other photographers is his creativity and passion with portraits of the bride & groom on their wedding day. Whether you book him for a half day or to cover your entire wedding Paul will always include a portrait session with you both, making use of your wedding venue and surrounding areas.

You can expect a range of shots together, and maybe a couple of individual ones too. Individual bridal portraits are always popular and something Paul specialises in, have a look at a selection of his bridal portraits here.

Paul came to our team Christmas Party at The Beehive and ran a photo booth but also mingled with the guests and got some candid shots of people enjoying themselves. We were really pleased with the set up of the photo booth and he came fully prepared with Christmassy props and the red background used was really festive. The photos we got back were great quality and really captured the fun we had. I wouldn't hesitate to use Paul again - good quality at a decent price.

Paul David Smith came to our school to deliver some photography training to three members of staff. The session was well thought through, thorough and enjoyable. Paul is extremely friendly, patient and approachable. Thank you Paul for making the course so enjoyable :-)

Paul is a brilliant trainer, perfect for photography novices. He didn't try to teach us everything, but really drummed in the key elements - shutter speed, aperture and ISO - so we left the session with a good knowledge of what each one does and how to use them. He's kicked all of us out of auto mode and given us the knowledge and confidence to take good photos in any situation and any light. Ideal training for journalists.

I had to get a new range of product shots taken for my Not on the High Street online store page, and had really specific ideas on what was needed.
The photographs Paul took were perfect, and captured my range of jewellery perfectly. All in all a great price for a great service.

Paul David Smith is one of the best photographers i have used for wedding and event jobs. He has a fun, artistic view of things that shows throughout his images. He also manages to catch images that others would have missed, showing deeply intimate moments during busy events. Which are a big part of weddings.

I recently went on a photography trip organised by Paul and Rhian to Glencoe in Scotland for 4 days. I would just like to say what an amazing time I had , meeting all the other photographers and models. I came away with some fantastic pictures and memories, it was extremely well organised from start to finish. Paul and Rhian covered all eventualities with props, smoke grenades and outfits for the models and more than enough photographic ideas to last a life time! I've come away from this trip with renewed interest in my photography,paul was on hand to help with any questions/problems that we had.
I can wholeheartedly recommend going on one of these trips , well worth the money , will be looking out for the next one !

Thank you for a great product photography workshop last week. I learnt loads, and remembered more than I thought! Able to put it all into practice now.

I received my wedding photos from Paul yesterday, just two weeks after my wedding and they are amazing! The day feels such a blur as it went so quick but Paul captured every moment to bring it back to me. They are edited AMAZINGLY, we wanted a relaxed photographer and Paul is exactly that, capturing people enjoying themselves instead of stiff uncomfortable poses. We wanted some group shots and Paul made this fun and quick to save our guests getting bored. We then went off with Paul, just my husband and I and had some amazing photos taken, again paul was amazing and so professional we were not away from our guests for too long. Paul thank you so much for giving me the most beautiful memory of our wedding day, I'll forever be grateful and cannot recommend you enough. I've put every single photo on my Facebook as there isn't a single one I don't like and my phone has not stopped since with compliments of how amazing our photos are! I must also add that communication with Paul before and after the wedding was brilliant and we met up before the wedding to get an idea of the plan for the day and they style we wanted. Thank you so much Paul I hope to use you again for photos in the future!

Paul booked me for a photography workshop trip in Glencoe last week where he was both shooting and tutoring three photographers throughout the day, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

Everything, from him initially contacting me until the very end of the shoot, was spot on.

Pre-shoot, Paul messaged me in plenty of time to ask me some questions and discuss shoot ideas and outfits with me, being very open and informative about what the shoot entailed. As the shoot was a bit far from home, Paul picked me up on time from an arranged location and took me to shoot.

Paul ensured I was comfortable very quickly, being really friendly and introducing me to the other model and photographers, and openly discussing ideas, including everyone.

Paul was also incredibly complimentary all day on my work and more than happy to direct us to get the shots he wanted, as well as helping out the other photographers too. Not to mention making sure everyone was happy, comfortable and warm enough all day.

Paul was incredible to work with - the ultimate professional and an all-round nice guy. I would love to work with him again and I would recommend that any model with the chance to work with him snaps up the chance immediately!

I joined Paul and Rhian on their Glencoe Photography Trip 2017 along with two other photographers and three models over the course of the two day trip. Before the models joined us, we did a scout around the local area to get ideas for locations and shoots. Paul and Rhian had already scouted the areas prior, so they already had ideas themselves.

To say Paul and Rhian were organised was an understatement! They had brought so many dresses, props and ideas with them, just in case us photographers didn't! Whilst they had their own ideas, they were very open to our (photographers and models) input over locations and costumes.

Paul gave us excellent tuition, especially setting up and using the portable studio lights that he had brought with him. Both his and Rhian's enthusiasm for the subject and the holiday rubbed off on everyone! Be warned - expect early mornings and long days of shooting! (Not a bad thing!!!)

Evenings were very relaxed and everyone got on and chatted away as if we had known each other for a long time.

I would highly recommend going on one of Paul and Rhian's photo trips and hopefully will be coming along with them on a future trip(s).

Finally, just want to say a huge thank you to both of them. xx

Well this is an overdue thank you and a reference for Paul. I joined him on his photographic workshop in Glencoe back in September. The organisation of the workshop was great, with Paul turning up with some well chosen models, and a big array of outfits and props. He did an excellent job of focussing on our individual needs, finding a nice balance moving from instruction at the start towards more coaching as we became more independent at each location. He invited creative input from all of us, including the models, always remaining flexible to make the most of the available locations and working around the weather and the light. His energy and enthusiasm kept us all going throughout. I would definitely join Paul and Rhian on a future trip. As for the results… it would be fair to say they exceeded my expectations, with three now achieving FPI status on Purpleport! All in, a very rewarding, inspiring and fun few days.

I attended a half day one to one lesson with Paul and was really impressed with the level of teaching given. He really made sure I got everything I needed to from the session and that I left feeling confident in the new skills I had gained. I was very pleased with the results I was able to achieve under his direction and his help and support afterwards has been particularly valuable in sourcing my own equipment.

I'd highly recommend anyone to join Paul on one of his weekend photographic adventures. It's not just a workshop, it is an adventure. I joined Paul on the Snowdonia Warrior themed photographic holiday and had such an amazing time which is all down to Paul and Rhian for organising a fantastic experience.

Paul's enthusiasm and creative energy for photography is infectious which sets the tone for the weekend from the outset. You just can't help but get involved due to his positivity. He has a relaxed style but in tutoring he gently coaches you to try new techniques and styles as well as allowing time for you to experiment on your own. As a photographer you couldn't ask for more. The trip was well organised with a fantastic set of locations scouted, an incredible array of outfits and accessories and two outstanding models who braved the challenging weather across the weekend.

As this was my first workshop I'd attended that's spread over several days, they have set the bar extremely high!! The images that I walked away from the trip with are incredible but for me personally it was the positive attitude and inspiring feeling of the trip that shone through. I enjoyed every minute of it and felt that I've have learnt a lot from it. Whether it be new technical aspects, different approaches to lighting or how best to communicate with models and crew to get the best results from your image the weekend is truly a fantastic, immersive experience.

I'd highly recommend attending one of Paul's trips and I can't wait to join them on another trip at some point in the future. Lastly I'd like to say a huge thanks both Paul and Rhian for all of their hard work in crafting a fantastic weekend. Simply brilliant!!!
