Just imagine......your family members doing what they enjoy most, captured forever in beautifully framed wall portraits proudly displayed in your home. Just imagine the number of times you will see your wall portraits over the coming years, and how you will cherish your family memories.

We provide a complete family portrait photography service throughout Cardiff, South Wales and the Vale of Glamorgan. A family portrait is probably the most personal work of art you will ever possess, and our heirloom portraits reveal a warmth and personal feeling that will not just add to your home: they will be treasured by your family for many years to come.

With a strong desire to create your personal works of art, our portraits tell a story and provide a quality that goes far beyond the techniques of photography.

Our Service

On all portrait sessions, we will spend unlimited time with you on location, and, if desired, in your own home to create special images for your preview show.

Approximately one week after your portrait session, a series of portraits are projected on screen in the comfort of your own home for you to assess the results in the best possible manner.

All works are finished to the highest possible standard to eliminate any imperfections. This attention to detail provides portraits of exquisite beauty and quality.

Portraits are then mounted in bespoke natural timber frames, which are finished to an exceptional quality by a Craftsmen Framer.

Fine Art canvasses are also available. Printed on Archival Quality canvas certified by the Fine Art Guild as having a guaranteed life of 100 years, these give the feel of an Old Masters painting, and provide stunning portraits.

Location and Style

Location portraiture is a fabulous way of capturing special moments in your favourite places, and where you are most comfortable. With a huge range of beautiful landscapes, beaches, architecture and wildernesses, Wales provides a fantastic portrait backdrop throughout all four seasons.

Whether you desire timeless black and white portraits in our popular photo noir style, classical Victorian sepia, or funky colour portraits, we provide you with timeless works of art that you and your family will cherish for many years to come.

"He is an excellent photographer and we have been delighted with the quality of his work and his ability to capture the essence of each event." Margaret Pritchard, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of South Glamorgan.

"We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us in 2013, not just on our wedding day but in the months leading up to the big day too. The wedding photos are stunning, and the album is simply wonderful and really tells the story of our magical day, capturing those perfect moments. We really hope we will work with you again one day!" Emily Snead, Cardiff.

"Paul recently took some photographs of my two little boys and I couldn't be more pleased with the portraits. He was able to put them both at ease, which resulted in some really nice, natural shots that show their individual personalities to a tee. Paul had some great ideas for locations / poses so the pictures are so much more than the usual 'studio shots' I've had before. Great hand-made framing too! I have already recommended Paul to my friends. Brilliant." Lisa Burke, Cardiff.

"You don't get an assistant, you get Paul and he's a thoroughly nice chap. What you get is a complete service that is top quality from start to finish. I have no reservations about recommending Paul's work to anyone and any size picture will be something to treasure. The value in Paul's work was the WOW factor and I'm glad I chose a bigger picture than I had budgeted for. 20 Years from now people will say "do you remember that picture on Mum's wall" and I will say "yes it was something special. Thank you Paul." Steve Clark, Cardiff.

"Paul is wonderfully creative man with a sophisticated approach toward everything he takes on in his work. His photography is a cut above in that he possesses a unique ability to capture fresh and imaginative, yet beautifully timeless photos that truly come to life." Claudia Neault, Bridgwater, Massachusetts.

Paul takes wonderful photographs - has great ideas and is willing to experiment and sees things in different ways. He works wonderfully with kids, has a great eye and puts you at your ease. I thoroughly recommend him as a photographer.”  Elizabeth Williams, Cardiff.
