Paul Reid is an unobtrusive wedding photographer. With over 25 years experience, Paul was one of the first photographers to move away from the very traditional wooden like posed wedding photography that was once the norm. With a much more relaxed approach everyone is more at ease, which results in more natural moments being captured. Beautiful more naturally posed shots as well as documentive photography throughout the wedding means weddings are captured perfectly.
He is also a great portrait photographer again with a more natural approach.

"I asked Paul to photograph our wedding day because I loved the pictures he did for a friend.Paul took into consideration the type of people we are and realised that we both felt very uncomfortable standing in front on the lense!On the big day Paul went out of his way to accommodate our wants and needs (up hill and down dale!). He made us laugh and snapped away so that all the photographs looked natural and unstaged. Paul made being chased by the 'papz' one of the most enjoyable days of the year!The 'magazine type' album we have is absolutely beautiful! Wouldn't hesitate to use him again for another special event! Hire him, he's brill!" Deborah Lowish

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for creating such beautiful wedding photographs for us. They capture the day perfectly and were exactly the relaxed style we wanted.You understood just what we wanted. The black and white ones are stunning and all our friends have commented on how fantastic they look. You were brilliant on the day and made everyone so relaxed - we were sorry to see you go when you left !Despite the weather being truly awful you managed to take loads of different pictures and capture it all - you have created some really beautiful pictures which we will enjoy for ever - thank you. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone - in fact we will probably be back for some family photographs!Thank you so much. Ginelle, Steve and Niall x

We booked Paul after visiting a local wedding fair.The display and portfolio held very contemporary work which included both Portrait and reportage style photos.The mood of the photos was very relaxed and seemed to capture the essence of the weddings.We felt that he would have a more modern and innovative ideas for our wedding day. We didn't want a very traditional formal photographer. He definitely proved us right.On the Wedding Day Paul was very funny and made us all feel very relaxed.He used digital photography which meant we could view our photographs on a Dvd format which was excellent. This was further enhanced with music.Photographs were available in colour or black and white. Paul presented our photographs in one of these formats depending upon how well they delivered in that colour. The black and white photos were simply stunning.We would recommend Paul Reid Photography to anyone who will settle for nothing less than perfection.Alison Mars

Well where do I commence? This guy is a genius with his Camera and one with vast amount of experience in his field. He made our Wedding day the most special day of our life with his photography skills. It's not just the photos but the way he responded to all our queries and dealt with everything in a very professional but friendly way. Even after the wedding the way he responded to us was exceptional and made us feel like we were top prioroty at all times.We will remember our special day forever because of the way he has put the album together. Every photo speaks for itself and brings back wonderful memories everytime we go through the Album.A truly professional and exceptional Photographer and a Gentleman. I would recommend Paul Reid Photography to everyone.

We have just arrived home from work and watched the final slide shows. I am speechless, you are a true artist. Not only are the pictures fantastic but they are so well compiled and shown. They really do look like a movie that will last a life time and for that i can not thank you enough. The music was brilliantly chosen the movement between pictures amazing, the background pictures and detail perfect. As i said i am speechless. After watching these we are in even more anticipation for seeing, and sharing our pictures. You captured a day that went by in a blur and thanks to you we can re-live it anytime we want to.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such amazing work Charles and Danika

We can't fault the wedding photos Paul has taken for us. We may be biased, but our wedding photos are the best ones we have seen! We certainly didn't want staid posed photos and simply left Paul to do what he does best on the day and the photos turned out great. They certainly capture the moment. In many cases Paul just simply blended into the background on the day and took photos without people realising and they turned out brilliantly. His relaxed and friendly nature also helped put people at ease as not everyone likes their photos being taken. The slideshow DVD was fantastic and wedding album gorgeous.We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul, so if you are looking for a wedding photographer book him quick!Brenda & Gavin Santus

Paul recently did a photo shoot for me and I was extremely impressed with not only the work that he did for me but also the wedding photography he did for a friend of mine.He has a nack for capturing people naturally with a shoot from the hip attitude while the photo's themselves look like something from the cover of a magazine.I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for either Portrait or Wedding Photography.

Paul Reid Photography Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

It's all about the decisive moment. Capturing an image of a split second in time before it's gone.

What do you love most about your job?

In over 25 years I have never had an unhappy client. The smile and tears of joy when someone views their photography is incredibly rewarding.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Taking pictures has been a big part of my life since being a child. To capture images of special moments for a living is a life long dream.

Why should our clients choose you?

Most of the time you won't even know I'm there. I understand that a wedding day is not a photo shoot. It's your special day and I'm there to capture every precious moment. No silly new photography trends are used that have the potential to date your photography in time. Just timeless beautiful photography.
