Paul Maven Photography

0 Review

When it comes to choosing your wedding photographer, you need someone with experience, quality and passion. Harrogate based wedding photographer Paul Maven has been capturing reportage style wedding images for over twenty years. He has gained a reputation for beautiful, natural photography and has worked at some of the North of England's top wedding venues.

Paul regularly photographs weddings in Harrogate, Leeds, Wetherby, Knaresborough, Ripon, York, across Yorkshire and beyond. Paul last summer provided professional photographic services to clients as far afield as Scotland and London. This wealth of experience, along with his professional, relaxed approach means the decision to book Paul to photograph your wedding can be made with complete confidence.

He has built up a fantastic portfolio of wedding photography at some of the most prestigious wedding venues across Harrogate, Yorkshire and further afield, including Allerton Castle, Rudding Park, Harewood House and many more. His contemporary style reflects his experience in photojournalism and fine art photography. Most of Paul's weddings benefit from having two photographers; Paul usually works alongside a female wedding photographer on these occassions. This allows additional photos to be captured, from two different angles without taking up more time. Brides also find it helpful to have a female photographer available for the 'getting ready' shots.

Paul works with the worlds leading album suppliers to ensure your wedding memories are presented at their very best. You also get your very own wedding website where you can browse your engagement shoot, wedding photographs and album. You have the opportunity to add information to the site enabling you to display information about your day and even start a gift registry.


Paul's years of experience as an accomplished Yorkshire wedding photographer mean that you will be in good hands on your wedding day. Paul is aware that many couples are nervous about being in front of camera. That is why Paul offers a pre wedding shoot  service. This session is a fantastic way to see how Paul works, and he will give you lots of advice about timing your day and how to get the most from your wedding photographer. You also get a bespoke photographic guest book and 50 photo 'password' cards when booking this service. One of the secrets of successful wedding photography is careful planning and Paul works closely with the bride and groom to ensure that every detail is covered. So wether you book the pre wedding shoot or not, he meets couples before the wedding at least twice to discuss the nuts and bolts of your wedding day photography.

After the wedding, couples can work with him to help design their own album and with face-to-face or online proofing, they can have as much or as little involvement in the process as they wish. Paul has also produced a list of vital questions that couples should be asking any potential wedding photographer. Topics such as wedding insurance, equipment and contingency plans are discussed.


Paul works to the very highest standards and leaves nothing to chance. From the pre-wedding consultation to the design of your album, every element of your wedding day photography is perfectly planned, resulting in photographs that you will treasure for the rest of your lives. He can offer advice on other suppliers across the region and beyond, as well as offer answers to the questions you may have regarding your wedding photography. He will ensure that the presentation of your wedding day photography is to the highest standard. He works with some of the wedding industry big names including Queensberry, Folio and Booked Images to provide you with bespoke hand-made leather wedding albums and Storybooks. A Paul Maven wedding album is much more than a collection of photos. It is a family heirloom; the story of your wedding, presented in a stunning, bespoke album made from sumptuous contemporary materials. These beautiful books are a perfect match for Paul's blend of traditional and contemporary reportage wedding photography.


Paul's passion as a wedding photographer shines through his extensive wedding photography portfolio. His natural flair for capturing the moment results in beautiful photographs that will be enjoyed for years to come. Paul is a full time photographer. His passion, skill and experience are backed up by professional and academic qualifications. Your day should be about you, and although photography plays a huge part in that, Paul likes to work with clients to ensure the photographic element of the day does not dominate proceedings; so he works fast, but is thorough. He will keep things moving along, but never at the expense of creativity. Contact Paul to discuss any element of your wedding photography.
