Stylish Wedding Photography – Unobtrusive Reportage

Surrey & Hampshire Wedding Photographers Carol & Paul


Hello, I’m Paul Tansley. I shoot weddings with my partner Carol – Welcome to Stylish Wedding Photography

Our Style

We are Hampshire Wedding Photographers based in Headley on the border of Surrey, Hampshire & Sussex. We capture weddings in a reportage style, which some people call documentary wedding photography or story telling wedding photography. This means that for a good 90% of the day we are shooting candid natural images as they happen in a discreet unobtrusive way. We do of course shoot any family groups shots you would like and we also shoot some relaxed portraits that most couples love to have. However, we do these quickly and efficiently without dragging you away from your wedding day for too long. We don’t think your wedding day should turn into a photo shoot.

The images we shoot are then carefully edited and crafted to create a beautiful story of the day, in pictures. We capture emotions and memories as we see them through our eyes as observers of the day, we don’t interfere, organise or orchestrate the day. Our job is to blend into the wedding day, being an almost invisible part of it, while still being in the right place to catch those beautiful moments that you will treasure forever.

Our Background

I’ve been a professional photographer for over 20 years. My first 18 years were spent shooting high end fashion & wedding magazines in London, in 2010 I started shooting weddings. Carol my partner has been an Art Director for the last 17 years, working on fashion magazines and wedding magazines. Carol was Art Director of Wedding Magazine for 7 years. We met on a fashion shoot 20 years ago and have been together ever since. We shoot the majority of our weddings as a together as a couple, however Paul can now be booked for shooting your wedding solo if requested.

What Our Clients Say About Us

“Paul and Carol are truly very special photographers. From our first meeting with them we knew they were “the ones” as they already knew exactly how we wanted our photography to be done – unobtrusively but capturing all the important moments. You honestly barely know they are there…and when you do catch a glimpse of a lens your way, they’ve already made you so relaxed you really don’t mind! The quality of the pictures is second to none and we now have the wonderful story of our day that we can treasure & be proud of forever. If you are looking for superior quality pictures of your day, taken by extremely professional, friendly and fun photographers, Paul and Carol are most definitely the people for you”
