Friendly, Inclusive, Eco-Conscious wedding photographer. #Love is Love, Always!
Hi, I am Paola,
from Paola De Paola Photography, a wedding photographer based in Wimbledon, London, England.
I really value diversity, and I am proud to support the LGBTQ+ community. Over the years, I have worked with people of all different cultural backgrounds, sexualities and religions. I believe in celebrating originality and embracing life and love in many forms. My style is warm, energetic, and intimate, and my aim is to capture all the magic and energy of your special day, right down to the littlest detail.
Sincere, loving relationships are at the heart of everything I do, and I would be delighted to learn more about you and discuss your plans for your big day.
I cover micro and maxi weddings throughout the United Kingdom and beyond. I offer a range of coverage options.
Package features include a pre-wedding consultation, hundreds of edited images, an online gallery, a USB in a personalised keepsake box, and more.
Engagement and family sessions, prints, albums, and 2nd shooter are available as optional extras.
How would you describe your style?
MY CREATIVE STYLE IS WARM, ENERGETIC AND INTIMATE.
It’s gentle, spontaneous and intuitive with sincere emotional relationships at the heart of everything. I love images that get up really close and personal – the sorts of photos that can only happen when I really know and care about the people in front of my camera.
MY DOCUMENTARY STYLE CAPTURES EVERY LITTLE DETAIL AS IT HAPPENS.
I never interrupt the flow of the day or force anything – I prefer to let the day unfold organically and capture it as it happens. So what if there’s a little mud on the dress? Just because it doesn’t go as planned doesn’t make it any less beautiful!
I use close crops and depth of field to focus attention on the elements that have caught my eye; the gorgeous details that you’ve put so much thought into creating, the look that passes between the two of you and the subtle touches that could be so easily missed. Your wedding will be remembered through my eyes and I love to challenge convention with my photography style!
Photographing a wedding is an extremely intimate thing to do and I’ll be closer to you than most during your wedding day. I’ll be in your bedroom as you dress, I’ll be right there for that first kiss and for the moment you look into each other’s eyes as a newly married pair. Throughout it all, I’ll be your constant companion and friend. I’m so honoured to photograph your wedding- I just can’t wait to meet you both…
“Paola is not just any wedding photographer. When you hire her you’re getting a photojournalist who’ll document everything you don’t expect or think about until after the wedding day. She’s endlessly upbeat, and helps keep you calm on the big day while not getting in the way. Best decision I made for my wedding (other than actually marrying my husband!)”

What do you love about weddings?
I ADORE PEOPLE AND EMOTIONS.
I’m completely non-judgemental: over the years, I’ve met people of all different cultural backgrounds, sexualities and religions. I see through all of that and photograph the wonderful energy of LOVE!
I BELIEVE IN CELEBRATING ORIGINALITY AND DIVERSITY AND EMBRACING LIFE IN ALL ITS FORMS.
Through my photographs, I aim to capture the energy, essence and magic of people – all the little things along the way that have made you who you are. I want my couples to express themselves freely – how they feel, what they love.
I’ll help to shake off any fears or worries and empower you to step forwards as yourselves.
“Paola is an absolute gem! When you meet her you will see that her photography is just an extension of her personality. She absolutely adores what she does and this love reflects in her final images.”
