Hi, I am Paul

I am a North East photographer/videographer based in Newcastle upon Tyne. I picked up my first 'professional' camera after my wife forced me to purchase one for our trip to New York in early 2012. I became addicted within months and watched various YouTube tutorials to make sure I was getting the best out of my new purchase. One year later and I was photographing my first wedding!

I've pretty much worked in retail throughout my career. This has helped me listen and talk to people in a very friendly, natural way. Starting off in McDonald's Restaurants as my first job I then went on you manage a large independent games retailer which brought my communications skills to a different level. I'll stop talking about the past as it's sounding like I'm writing a CV :-)

I arrive at your wedding nice and early, to avoid making you stressed on your special day. This allows me to take my time photographing the details on your wedding day without feeling rushed and also allows me to grab a coffee...I love coffee :-)

After your first dance is usually when your photographer packs up and says "goodbye". Not me, when you invest in Paul Flannigan Photography, I'm there to help you throughout your day and capture those special moments of your friends and family enjoying themselves on the dance floor, but this also gives me the opportunity to capture some lovely evening portraits - no matter what the weather!

Here are some of the venues I've photographed, don't worry if you don't see yours here, I love visiting new places and having a scout around at what potential they have

  • Ramside Hall
  • Riverside Lodge, Morpeth
  • Royal Station Hotel
  • Slayley Hall
  • South Causey Inn
  • St James' Park, Newcastle United

  • Village Hotel
  • Tulip Hotel, York
  • Ullet Road Unitarian Church, Liverpool
  • Vermont Hotel

Throughout the day we didn't feel under pressure to pose for the camera at all, everything was so laid back and natural which is just what we wanted, Paul fit in with the guests perfectly and was there to help whenever needed.

We really loved his non-intrusive approach! He put me and my husband at ease throughout our day and we had such a good laugh with him. Our guests spoke very highly of Paul, nothing was too much trouble for him and he dealt with some tricky weather conditions with ease!

Paul was fantastic from the first meeting right though to delivering our photos. His relaxed but professional attitude mixed with his organisation and amazing talent led to our photos being better than we ever could have expected. Thank you for your hard work Paul, we will treasure our photos forever
