How I became a wedding photographer and videographer...

Not only am I a Welsh Wedding photographer, I'm proud to say that I'm a wedding videographer too. Photography has been my entire life since I was 15 and it was a natural progression for me to start working with moving images and video. I've been making films for over 10 years and it's a massive part of who I am as an artist. I shot my first wedding film in 2014 and have shot many, many more since. Originally all my video work was under the name Arcadia Wedding Films. It was a lot of effort running two separate brands for photography and video and now I put it under Christopher Paul Wedding Photography and Videography. 

This was Danielle and Neil's Indie film, I can show you more videos when we meet up for a chat. 

This was Ellie and Jon's indie film

Double packages for Wedding Photography and Wedding Videography...

I spent a long time developing the way that I work and thinking about the best possible way for me to do both before shooting double packages. I've started offering them at the end of last year and they've been a  great success.  I realised that I can reduce my prices for people who hire me for both and it can save them money whilst covering my time and expenses. It's a win win. 

Most importantly I want everyone to think of me as photographer and a film maker in my own right. I'm not one more than the other. 

Benefits of having a photography and videography package ...

Having both images edited in a similar way using my years of experience in both film making and photography makes them a styled set, they work well together and have a similar look and aesthetic. Different artists have different work flows and sometimes it's possible to have two amazing artists and when you put the work together it can look mismatched or just not feel right. Obviously this isn't the end of the world at all, but having the photography and film mixed together can be nice especially when you place images within the film.
