Meet Paulo

Hello. Thank you for stopping by. My photography, it means a lot to me. It’s about much more than turning up and taking a few great photos. If you’re considering me as your wedding photographer, then here’s my chance to sell myself. Please allow me to show you how I approach things differently, what I’ve achieved, what I believe in, and perhaps - maybe, even convince you I’m a good guy to invite to your wedding. I'm sure you'd like to know a little more about the person you'll potentially spend a large amount of your wedding day with. If that sounds reasonable, then please read on ...

Paulo Santos Wedding Photographer Inspiration


For me, inspiration is everywhere. I don’t stop being a photographer when I put my camera down. I see interesting frames wherever I go and take countless mental clicks of anything that captures my attention. People, light, movement, shadows, moments, likeable interesting things. These inspiring little flashbacks help me to see the photos I want when I next pick up my camera. When I’m not taking photos, my happiness comes from my two children, meeting new people, travelling (to anywhere), good coffee, unusuality, drinking wine (French), warm sand, people watching, hot sauce, film cameras, music, sunsets, laughing, love.


Paulo Santos - Wedding Photographer About Me


When a client hires me, I bring to their wedding more than a decade of experience as a professional wedding photographer. Over four hundred happy couples across the globe have hired me for my unique style and approach to wedding photography. I’m immensely proud of this. I’m also proud to have won many of the most reputable international photography awards for my work. I've also been recruited as a judge at some of these awards too.

Like every aspect of my photography, it’s considered. This includes the beautiful and timeless 35mm film aesthetic you see and feel throughout my work. I’m drawn to creating classic black and white imagery and endearing rich colour frames with perfect natural hues and gorgeous skin tones that I know my clients love and appreciate. Oh, and while we're on the subject of taking pride in your work, I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear I don't outsource the editing of your photos. I’m emotionally connected to your photos at every stage. No shortcuts.


Wedding Photography Client Connection


Having a connection with my couples is essential. From connection comes trust. I'm hired to photograph weddings from the luxurious and large, to intimate and small, and everything in between. The most magical pure photography is created when solid trust and connection exists with my couples, together with an shared appreciation for the timeless and creative style I strive for. My photography isn’t about location or venues or dresses. It’s about people. And all the individual character and emotions that come with that.


I’d love to tell you I’m a great guy to invite to your wedding, but I can’t. It wouldn’t be right of me. Let’s face it, I’m more than a little biased here. Instead, please have a small glance over the wonderful things couples say about their experience after the event. I often feel my clients can explain better than I what exactly it is I do well.

Many of my reviews extend past the quality of the photographs, and into everything they loved from start to finish. And that’s exactly the way it should be. Because, it’s about much more than turning up and taking a few great photos.
