York WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER KIERAN PAUL
My style of wedding photography is a combination of relaxed a natural photojournalism, and a fashion based editorial style. Graduating with a degree in photography and film I studied photographers such as Martin Parr who takes an intimate and true documentation of what he see's. As a York wedding photographer and videographer I spent many years trying to find my style and imitate others that influenced me, until realising that I just needed to shoot with my own approach. I've developed a style that is darker but still beautiful and full of emotion.
COMBINING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AND WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY
People are often surprised that in addition to photography, I also work as a wedding videographer. It’s actually where I started in the wedding industry and the trade I learned first. In fact I spent four years working as a York wedding videographer before I even considered photography.
This page is dedicated to still images. If you’re interested in a joint video / photo package, (or even just videography) then reach out to me and we can look at what options are available. To learn more about my style and approach, read on.
Kieran, you LEGEND!!! Amy and myself were in tears going through our photos, you SMASHED IT!!!

REAL MOMENTS WITH AN ELEMENT OF EDITORIAL BY YORK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER KIERAN PAUL
My work as a York wedding photographer differs from the traditional rules. I shoot minimalistic with small and unobtrusive FujiFilm cameras and prefer to give minimal guidance and direction. I like to remain unnoticed as a wedding photographer but still be a huge presence on your day, support, advice and reassurance is what everyone needs on their wedding day. Of course I want you to benefit from all the beautiful and timeless photographs but I also want you to benefit from my experience.
HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU WORKED AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN YORK?
I've been a professional wedding photographer in York for almost a decade now and have worked on over 200 weddings.
HOW MANY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHS WILL WE RECEIVE?
Typically I’ll present you with between 500 – 700 edited photographs. These will be a mixture of colour and black and white.
DO YOU NEED TO VISIT THE VENUE BEFOREHAND?
No, my work is always people and story focused. The venue, as beautiful as I know it will be simply provides me with a back drop for my wedding photography.
I DON’T LIKE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED. HOW DOES THIS WORK?
I would say 95% of my couples feel exactly the same. I’ve built my entire ethos and approach to working as a York wedding photographer around this question. Whatever ideas you may have of what a wedding photographer looks like, that’s probably not how I’ll look. I don’t use big cameras or lights or anything else that will slow me down or cause a distraction. I’ll probably be seen as just another guest. I take my lead completely from my couples. If you want zero direction and want me to work 100% photojournalistically, then that’s fine with me. Likewise, if you want a little help with direction then I’m happy to help..
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
Absolutely. I have a wide selection of wedding books and parent books available. Drop me an email and we can talk some more.
WHAT TIME DO YOU STAY UNTIL?
As a York wedding photographer I want to capture a true story of your entire day from start to finish. This includes those crazy dance floor shots. I never give a set finish time but I’ll always be there to capture your party.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Absolutely, I can provide copies for the venue if requested.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHS?
I'll always try to deliver your full set of images within 6 weeks. However depending on the time of year this can vary. If I have a clear schedule then it’s quite often that you’ll receive your wedding photographs within a few weeks.
