Hello! Welcome to the home of John Paul O’Donnell, I’m a classically trained professional wedding photographer in Hertfordshire with a career that spans 24 years. My passion and excitement for my job has taken me all over Europe, specialising in Fashion and Wedding photography Hertfordshire being our location. To date I have over 450 fashion assignments and 2000 weddings under my belt. The wedding Photography packages that we produce are without doubt the best around for quality and value. Just take a look at my wedding photography hertfordshire page and see for yourself.
The bride at my very first wedding was a Christian Dior model with high expectations, and it was this assignment in particular that taught me the importance of creating timeless images where attention to detail is paramount. At a later assignment for a film production company, I was tasked with photographing pro skiers on the colours of the French Alps. This involved me having to drop from a helicopter where I had just one chance to get it right. And that’s what drives me forward: One spectacular event, and just one opportunity to be the best I can possibly be in order to deliver exceptional, creative and unique photographs.
Clicking the shutter is just a small part of what I do. Meeting people, having fun, and building a rapport is an essential part of my work. In fact, many wedding guests assume I’m a family friend when they see the way I interact with my clients. I love this part of my job – I love talking to and hearing about them, and I love watching their stories unfold on what will be one of the most important days of their lives. As a hertfordshire wedding photographer I am a frequent visitor to and can show you some of the best wedding venues in Hertfordshire. When the day is over, there’s still so much more work to be done. With up to 800 beautiful moments captured, the editing process begins. Each chosen image is perfected before printing commences, and as I started my career as a printer, my standards are extremely high. I love it when couples come here to choose and select their wedding photography packages.
It’s my mission to personalise every wedding and event that I’m assigned to, and to deliver breathtaking images that will be treasured forever. I don’t do mediocre; my aim is to give you not only an exceptional service, but a stunning storybook of incredible, once-in-a-lifetime memories. I don’t want you to merely smile when you see my work; I want you to be in awe. It’s what you deserve, and it’s what I’ve spent half of my life striving to deliver.
My wedding photography packages and events I photograph are always unique and my photographs always reflect that. It has never been my intention to tell a single story – I want to tell your story. If you give me the opportunity to provide you with an incredible, bespoke service, where I capture all the joy and emotion of your special day, I know you won’t be disappointed. Being the leading hertfordshire wedding photographer has always been my ambition and my dream.
My style is very much fun, natural, and candid, with my classical roots evident. But if there’s something in particular you have your heart set on, that’s fine too. So, whether you’re looking for contemporary or classical images in either colour or black and white, please get in touch for a no obligation chat, or to arrange a consultation. All the wedding photography packages are on our website. Also on the website is a page called wedding photography hertfordshire with lots of current wedding photographs on it. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
