Nellie & Dove - Deddington
Anthony has taken some stunning photos of our boutique for us to use in adverts and marketing. He arrived early to familiarise himself with the shop and snapped away including involving some willing customers, which was an added bonus for us (he went through the images with the customers, and saved their favourites for our use).
It's refreshing to see professional photos after so many of our attempts! We will definitely book Anthony again, when our shop doubles in size. Helen Spencer, Nellie & Dove, Deddington.

Tony did an absolutely brilliant job capturing the quality of our work in Cirencester. He was quick, polite and always available to answer any of our questions as and when. We’ll be using him regularly from now on. Highly recommended.
Patrick & Julie - Bourton on the Water
One’s wedding is, hopefully, a one off event, and the record of the day through photographs is, possibly, the single most important aspect of what will be a precious and cherished memory. Getting the right photographer is not so much important, more absolutely essential. A wedding is made up of individual moments of joy; smiles of friends and family, intimate moments of shared happiness, fleeting and priceless. It’s not just a case of finding someone capable of spotting these magical snippets but, in addition, it’s vital that the professional has the ability to compose that moment. This is not something that can be taught, not something that can be learned in a lecture room, or picked up through repetition. This is a gift. My sister has the gift, always has had, which has proved an asset of Herculean proportions for her Interior Design business. But until we met Anthony of Anthony Paul Limited, Bourton on the Water, I imagined that apart from sis, this ability was restricted to the greats; Longford, Bailey, Cartier-Bresson. Just goes to show, it pays not to be narrow minded. When we first met Anthony, we initially discussed our requirements for our wedding day and, not being overly au fait with the process, knew we would have to rely heavily on the advice of our professional. We, very quickly, relaxed into the meeting, assured at the outset that we were in safe and capable hands. In the meeting, Anthony asked that we meet again to have a “practice” session. This was important, he told us, in ensuring we were both comfortable in his presence on the day, and any shots he managed would have a much more natural feel to them. We met in Bourton and Anthony took us to Notgrove, where he and us had a very enjoyable meander through the beautiful Cotswold village, as Anthony effortlessly directed the stroll. The resulting shots has left us with a lasting sense of just how much in love we are with one another. This mans' ability to capture, not so much a moment, but more an emotion, inspires complete confidence. Before signing the contracts, Anthony sat us down and went through a comprehensive check list of the kind of day we wanted the photographs to portray, from options such as a fun or a romantic occasion, with an array of sub-categories which guaranteed our day would be just as we wanted it to be. One is often left wondering whether the images on photographers websites are contrived or if they actually do show the professionals ability. Any body looking for someone to capture the essence of a wedding day, need have no fear that the stunning work shown on his website, is anything other than the genuine article, and need look no further than Anthony Paul Photography. This chaps service is first class and we look forward to posting examples of his considerable skill on our Facebook page.
Dave H - Witney
We used Tony to capture a cycle event in the Cotswolds. We were really impressed with the photos produced which really captured the ride. The photos had a natural feel and he didn't impose on the event. Very impressed, thanks.
Monika Zvinklyte - Oxford
Anthony was very professional and a great photographer. He brought in his own lighting and made sure that all the photos looked great, going an extra mile to achieve this. Digital library was available following day after the event. Would definitely recommend him to anyone and would hire again!
Diane Acland - Notrgrove
We needed some photography to show off our new safari tents at Notgrove Holidays recently and was really impressed when Anthony arrived within a few hours of the phone call to take them - he caught the perfect evening light and the photos look superb.
Paul Banfield - Oxford
Anthony was very professional and easy to work with, he was on time, had some great ideas on what type of shots to take and produced some stunning images. I would use again and highly recommend. Thank you Anthony
Helen Spencer - Deddington
Anthony is very professional and organised, arriving early to set up and with plenty of impressive 'kit'. He has the natural ability to make a shot look really special and also quirky. This is the 5th time we've booked him and already have the 6th lined up (our next charity fashion show 24th September 2019:)
Mandy Smith - Witney
We have used Tony several times over the last year to assist with several corporate events. Tony spends quality time with his customer identifying the needs and desired output. He is very friendly and puts everyone at ease. He is always very prepared ahead of time with the best equipment and lighting to suit the shots. We have all been extremely impressed with his work and we will continue to use him for future work.
Dee Harvey - Witney
We used Tony's services to take photos for a charity calendar. He did the most incredible job, coming up with ideas, organising everyone, nothing was too much trouble. The end result was a set of 12 fabulous, imaginative photos, for which we have received amazing feedback. Tony's talent and passion for what he does shines through and I can't recommend him highly enough.
Peter Brand - Bourton on the Water
I wanted someone to capture the essence of our cottage so guests get a taste of the atmosphere even before they arrive. Tony arrived for the shoot promptly , a true professional who respectfully took a real passion in his work and captured our character cottage perfectly. Would not hesitate to recommend in future a real pleasure to work with. 5/5 for service excellence.
Wendy Veal - Little Compton
“Over the past 10 years I have had the pleasure of watching Anthony Paul network and develop his business into the highly professional photographic service there is around - and aside from his passion (and now recognition) for showcasing the Cotswold's - pictures available for those of us working in tourism to access, Tony also captured some super pictures for The Old School website over the years. More recently I commissioned Tony to do a family shoot as a Christmas present - and what results. Early one morning to get the best golden warm light, autumn sunshine and leaves and the most endearing photos of three beautiful daughters and their parents. I could not stop looking at them. Tony clearly has the knack of making people feel relaxed, of enveloping the surroundings too without over-whelming the subject, and just making people and personalities shine through. He is a charming, calming gent, proactive, professional, with great attention to detail, always creative and clearly loving his work. It shows.....” Thank you Wendy

We had Anthony from Anthony Paul Photography in charge of photographs for our owners day last Sunday. Having only met him on the day, he understood completely what pictures we needed and put us at ease as he was so professional in what he did. We hardly knew Anthony was in attendance such was his ease at floating around and taking hundreds of different pictures that we will use in the coming years to send to owners, post on our website or for social media.
