Paul first worked as a photographer at the Museum of Horror and Torture in London, England, where he met the Rolling Stones and Blondie. He later was a photographer for Princess Cruises.

    Wedding -July 2019

    Paul and Melanie are AMAZING!
    They are so sweet and easy to talk to. They make you feel very comfortable from the moment you meet them.
    The photos we have seen so far are gorgeous - I couldn’t have asked for a better person to capture our day. The video is unbelievable!! My husband and I can not stop watching it. We absolutely love it. I would recommend Darlington Studios to anyone! I recommend going to their blog and checking out our video you won’t be sorry you did once you see their amazing work!!!

    I can’t wait to use them in the future for maternity photos/ family photos.

    Perfection!

    Paul & Melanie made every experience with them memorable, comfortable, and fun. They were open and warm with us from our very first chat and from the engagement photos until the last photo on our wedding day, they were so easy to work with.

    They really brought out the fun and love in our relationship with so many candid shots and their eye for good lighting and great spots for romantic shots were amazing. We have so many photos to choose from it will be hard to pick which ones we print.

    On top of all of the great photos they were patient with our families, our hectic schedule, and how hectic the day can be. Our time spent with them will be some of our most memorable from the day and we can't recommend them enough.

    My husband and I had Paul of Darlington Studios capture our wedding this past December and he did a phenomenal job! He was a pleasure to work with, made us feel comfortable, and even made us spending time outside in the snow bearable! The photos we have seen on Darlington Studios blog are incredible, and we cannot wait to get all of the photos from our special day! If you are ever looking for a quality, professional, friendly photographer that has the perfect creative eye for capturing stunning photographs, look no further then Darlington Studios!
    Thanks again Paul! We love you!
