Who are we?
We're Paul and Wendy and together we are Simpler-weddings. We're both passionate about providing great quality photographic services at a reasonable price. Read below to find out a bit more about what makes us tick.
Paul Watt - Primary Photographer
I'm Paul and I'm lucky enough to live on the Hampshire coast.
Since I discovered photography it's all I do and think about, it's my career and how I also choose to spend my free time!
Choosing your photographer is a hard task and one we hope to make easier for you.
Your wedding is a really important occasion and I'd love to capture all the magic of your big day.
What you have is completely up to you, If you'd only like the ceremony covered that’s what we'll do, if you'd like us for the whole day – that's fine too. It's your big day, your choice and we wont try to sell you any thing you do not want or aren’t comfortable with. Click here to see our package and pricing.
My style of photography is known as candid or photo-journalistic and in-between any group photos (if you'd like them – not everyone does) I'll be unobtrusively taking photos of the little moments as well as the big ones. The special hugs, the laughter and capturing the emotion of the day.
We're looking forward to hearing from you and taking some magical photos on your special day.
Wendy Russell - Photographer (and the brains of the operation)
I'm Wendy, Paul’s partner, photographer and the brains of the operation!
I love this business because I really enjoy working with people, organisation and making sure things run smoothly so weddings are perfect for me.
My role is to get to know you as a couple, help you find out what you want from your wedding photos and make sure that’s what you get. I will ensure every person and every detail that’s important to you is captured on the day.
Wedding planning can be a stressful time and my promise is to keep in contact with you and keep you updated all the way up to your wedding day and after, so you know when your images will be delivered. I am available at any time to answer your questions.
I will arrange a pre-wedding consultation (a least 1) with you, provide regular email check in/updates and organise a pre-wedding day venue check. I will liaise with the church and venue to ensure everything runs perfectly on the day.
My favourite style of photography is detail work, I love capturing the special but small details of the wedding, such as the dress, shoes, flowers and venue set up. Its also why I love the bridal prep shoots so much!
