PREMIUM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: International, Interstate, Margaret River Region, Perth, Great Southern and Beyond

Paul Donegan is a Margaret River wedding photographer capturing weddings all across the South West, Great Southern, Perth and beyond.

ABOUT ME

Hi. I’m Paul. I hear you’re in love? Congratulations! I’m madly in love too. Of course, with my partner and our boys. But more importantly – for you – with my work. I am passionate about what I do and after all these years it is still one of the loves of my life.

Since cutting my teeth as a press photographer for the Augusta Margaret River Times, Busselton Dunsborough Times and later the Sunday Times, my love for photography continues to bring me a lot of joy and adventure.

It’s taken me around the world, allowed me to work on fun projects for businesses like Harley Davidson, Rio Tinto, SCOOP Magazine, Wine Business Magazine and many more, and helped exercise a creative engine in me that is always running.

These days, my sole focus is weddings because it’s what I enjoy photographing more than anything else. Capturing love, fun and happiness – it’s the dream job! And nothing gives me more of a kick than delivering an eagerly anticipated wedding album or sharing sneak peaks once I get home while the couple is still living it up on the dance floor.

It would be an honour to capture these memories on your special day and weave together a visual story that reflects your love. So, let’s embark on this exciting journey together, where your story becomes my passion, and together we create unforgettable memories that will be cherished forever.

Testimonials

To travel to Alaska for our wedding and to produce such incredible images for us as well as being a major part of our day Paul easily get a 10 out of 10 from us. From our first meeting we were confident that our decision to hire him was the right one.  Paul proved to be a positive, calm, and assuring helping hand not only on the day of our wedding but through the entire planning process. Not an easy feat with a wedding on the other side of the world! We are incredibly unorganised people, and prefer spontaneity over planning; so to say we found planning a wedding to be a daunting task is an understatement. Thankfully Paul was there to guide us and think of all the details that we never would have thought of ourselves. He was flexible and easy going, yet always professional and thorough. Paul’s experience was invaluable, and our event wouldn’t have been the same success without him – and that was before he even got on the 22 hour plane ride or snapped a single photo.

Paul travelled all the way to Alaska with us and on the day of our wedding it was absolutely dumping snow. Visibility was low and it was cold, but Paul managed to capture phenomenal shots well beyond our expectations, and all much quicker than we expected too. During our outdoor photo-shoot he put our comfort above his own and performed his job quickly and efficiently, with unequivocally stunning results.  His work during our ceremony and reception was equally impressive, and he successfully captured not just all of our special moments, but also so many beautiful and uniquely candid photos of our family and friends. Thanks to Paul’s magnificent work we will be able to look back and bask in the magic that was our Alaskan wedding day long after our memories start to fade. You absolute legend Paul!

If anyone is looking for a magnificent wedding photographer, I highly recommend Paul. Please read about my experience of my Italian wedding:

Words cannot describe the thrill and amazement I felt when I got my wedding photos back from Paul. I knew of his reputation and had been incredibly impressed by the photos on his website, so when he agreed to travel to Italy to photograph my wedding I was overjoyed!

When he arrived in Italy we set up a photo scouting tour of the small old town and left the rest up to him. He was always positive, reassuring and professional. He came along to the church rehearsal and gave us tips to ensure the best shots (such as pausing a moment before the ‘kiss’ and laying each other’s hands flat when putting on the rings). We had a tight turn around time from the church to the reception but he kept us on time with efficiency and precision.

At the reception I hardly saw him, but he was always there watching – getting those natural un-staged shots. He doesn’t do the posed group smiley shots (except a couple after the church with family). He is an artist, where the composition of the photo is matched with a stunning contrast of colours and textures. He sees more than the normal peripheral vision- his lens capturing the whole landscape and incorporating us, the bride and groom, against the backdrop of towers, forts and rolling hills. Just take a look at our photos – they are awesome! It’s so hard to choose which ones to blow up. So far I have 10 on my shortlist – I need more wall space haha.

Paul from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Thank you for capturing our special day and adding your magic touch – you are a master of the lens, a true artist. We are beyond happy and satisfied. These memories will last a lifetime. Thank you Paul!

GENEVIEVE + ALLESANDRO CARDINI

Paul is more than just a photographer, he is an artist. Paul has such incredible vision and captured some amazing shots of our wedding in Denmark, that were better than we could have ever imagined. We know he goes the extra distance to make anything he does into a work of art as you can see the passion in his work. From the very beginning when we met Paul he was professional, easy going and relaxed. We absolutely love that he captured the whole story from beginning to end and all our guests commented they didn’t even know he was there during the day.

Our wedding was so much better for having Paul there, not just on the day but for all the advice and support we received in the months before and after. You will feel so much more relaxed having him there as he has a very calming influence. We received our photos extremely quickly, a few sneak peeks a couple days after to keep us wanting more and then all the rest within four weeks of our wedding day, which is absolutely amazing. We would not hesitate to recommend In Sight Photography to anyone needing photography work, not just for weddings but for any occasion. We will definately be using Paul again in the future.

Paul, thank you for capturing our special day and adding your touch of brilliance. You have an amazing talent and are a true artist. We will be forever grateful of the precious memories you have created for us. Thankyou. 

ROGER + PIP SCHULZ
Denmark, WA

Choosing Paul was the best decision we made about our big day. The photos Paul captured for us were unlike anything I ever could have expected or hoped for and although I had seen his albums during our meetings I was skeptical that anyone could create such amazing photos for every couple he works with.

Not only were the photos amazing but Paul made our afternoon so much fun, he is relaxed, light hearted and 100% genuine when he puts in his best effort to capture your moments. We had met with several high end photographers prior to the day and Paul was the only person who recognised that a wedding day is meant to be a day that we should cherish and remember fondly.

He is the only photographer I would ever recommend and will never stop bragging about the photos he took, every time I am asked who our photographer was!

Thank you Paul for capturing our day, our family and our spirit in an incredible album.

Amazing pictures! Paul is definitely one of Margaret River’s finest photographers. The pictures of our wedding are exactly what we dreamed of. We absolutely love them! He knows how to catch emotions, and you really can feel our love and happiness through his shots. They are priceless. It’s like he knew our exact expectations without us asking for them. We sent the pictures to our family and friends back in France and they all said that it was like being with us that day! Thank you so much Paul for capturing our precious memories.

THIBAUT + FANNI
Busselton, WA

They say pictures can speak a thousand words. However, the words Thank You, even when said a thousand times, are not enough to describe our gratitude for the amazing photos Paul took on our wedding day. Being a couple who feel shy around the camera Paul made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Our album captured everything we had ever hoped. MOMENTS. Moments that will now hang proudly on our wall. Moments of our perfect day.
We highly recommend Paul to any future Bride and Groom if they want that “wow” captured on their wedding day. Thanks again Paul for your amazing work and for capturing everything and more”

CAYLA + BEAU

To speak highly of Paul would hardly do his work and professionalism justice. He is a super hero of photography: he’s there, but not there at the same time. He captured every moment of our wedding, yet no-one ever noticed he was there. This captured some of the most amazing moments and reactions on our day, which made every photo tell a separate story in its own right. Beyond this, he also knew how and when to let us take a much needed respite to take in the day and appreciate the stunning location he was capturing us in. Paul is simply incredible.

MARK + JARED
Perth, WA

We recently chose Paul to photograph our wedding and couldn’t be happier – the images he took were nothing short of incredible! He captured so many beautiful moments throughout the day, from the preparations to the ceremony, location shots, and the reception. We have so many great images with which to relive the memories of our wedding day thanks to Paul. He has such a good eye for what makes a great photo, never missing an opportunity to capture an image that is truly amazing. For instance, while driving to one of our photo locations Paul had us spontaneously pull over and jump out of our car to pose in the middle of the road, all so that he could capture an amazing picture of us with this incredible light coming through the clouds.

Paul really exceeded our expectations, he was fun, professional and knowledgeable knowing all the best places to take location photos around Bunker Bay as well as the best angles and poses to produce really stunning images. He was also super well prepared with all the extras and accessories needed to help throughout the day – he even had extra lighting for the dance floor at our reception to make sure the shots of our first dance were well lit and properly captured our joy and excitement. Paul is absolutely fantastic and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have someone capture their special day.

When we first started looking for a photographer for our wedding, we had no idea where to start. For months, we googled, and contacted numerous people for pricing and got nothing back that seemed value for money, not to mention the fact that we were not overly impressed with quality of the examples that were available to view.

During this process we were also looking for a venue for our ceremony & reception. When we found the venue that we were looking for, this is when we came across some of Paul’s work, and WOW! There are no words to describe how incredibly talented this guy is. They say a picture says a thousand words, but his say 10 times more than that. Have a look for yourself and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

From the moment we met with Paul to discuss our options, he immediately fit exactly what we were looking for – fun, laid back, professional and open to our ideas, with a guidance that made us feel so at ease for the whole process of the day.

Paul captured our special day better than we could have ever imagined possible. Neither of us are big on ‘posing’ for photos, and he embraced that by capturing some absolutely gorgeous natural shots. The angles, colours and lighting in all of the photos are nothing less than stunning.

Whilst looking back over the photos (which we can’t stop doing because they’re amazing) we have both made comments like “I didn’t even know he was there at that time”, which to me speaks volumes about him and his work. The choice of which photo’s to print is now the dilemma we are facing haha.

Paul, you have helped us capture the most beautiful lifelong memories, in the most amazing way and we thank you so much for that. We could not recommend you enough to anyone who is looking for a photographer for any reason.
Thank you so much!

After seeing Paul’s work online and speaking to him about our requirements, we knew we had to fly him over to Victoria for our wedding. Our wedding was held in the Macedon Ranges over Easter, and Paul’s eye for both capturing nature and people was perfect for us. He took some incredible images of what was a very special day, at both our home where the ceremony and reception was held, and amongst the granite outcrops of the Tooboorac region. We submitted a selection of the images to Real Weddings and they have confirmed a feature in one of their upcoming issues, enough said about the quality of Paul’s shots! As well as being pretty handy with a camera, he’s a great guy to deal with, so Tracey and myself couldn’t be happier.

BEN + TRACEY ROBERTSON
Lancerfield, VIC

We don’t even know where to start! Paul was one of our first suppliers we chose during the wedding planning, we absolutely love photography so we knew we had to find a true professional! From the moment we saw Paul’s photos and read his reviews we just knew he was going to be the right fit for us! Paul is truly a professional and is a delight to work with, not only that but he truly loves and is passionate about what he does which not only shows in the photos but his whole presence on the day! He waded out into the waves with his equipment just to get the perfect beach shot for us! We loved the locations we went to and are adventurous people which is what Paul has captured for us! On the wedding night Paul sent us some sneak peak photos which are some of our favourites! Paul’s work truly speaks for itself and once you meet him you will know he is the one you want to capture your memories. Amazing person, passionate about his work and he will deliver beyond your expectations. Highly recommend!

CHANTELLE + TOM

We found In Paul by simply searching photographers in the southwest region on the internet and social media. Paul’s work immediately stood out for us, we absolutely fell in love with the way he was able to capture and combine the beauty of the southwest area with the candid moments shared by loved ones at special events such as weddings. We only needed to read a few testimonies to know that Paul was our guy. His laid-back nature made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process and whenever we spoke or met with Paul, we were treated and made to feel like old friends. On our wedding day, we were met with some pretty adverse conditions, as it rained for most of our shoot. Despite this, Paul was very reassuring and he captured some absolutely incredible photos, especially our landscape shots. He was very unobtrusive during our ceremony and reception, somehow snapping all the special moments without us even realising he was there. Paul went over and above to look after us and make sure we were happy with everything. We would absolutely recommend Paul to anyone who is after amazing landscape photography, friendly service and outstanding quality.

ERIN + TIM
Rivervale, WA

We can’t recommend Paul enough as an amazing photographer. We got married on our farm property and photography on our special day was very important and personal to us. Paul captured the beautiful scenery and natural moments across our day with amazing landscape shots as well as intricate details of all the little things we didn’t get time to pay attention to at the time. We have had a tough time choosing which photos to get printed!

Paul was so professional and easy going, it made for a great vibe on the day and we felt really comfortable and in safe hands. All our guests thought Paul was great and he really did help everything run so smoothly. Thank you Paul for helping make our dream day a reality and capturing it so well. We are so happy we chose In Sight Photography.

BEC + LENNY
Frankland, WA

We are absolutely blown away by how beautiful our photographs turned out thanks to Paul. Paul’s professionalism and great personality added to a very memorable experience capturing those special moments on our big day. Paul took on board what ideas we had and he incorporated that in such an artistic way that every shot showcased the beauty of Margaret River and we are so proud to show off our photos to family and friends. Paul was amazing to deal with pre and post wedding, always making himself available and helping out on the big day. He went above and beyond! We would more than highly recommend In Paul to any future bride and groom looking for that brilliant artistic eye and great service knowing you are always going to get the very best from a wonderful photographer.

NIKKI + COLIN

From the moment we made contact with Paul through to the delivery of our wedding photos, we have been extremely impressed with Paul. Paul’s absolutely incredible photographic talent and personality/professionalism made our wedding day such a joy, with many of our guests commenting on how lovely it was for Paul to be a critical part of our celebrations. He caught the essence of us as a couple and even as importantly, captured photos of our family and friends to perfection as well. Every photo he sent to us brought huge smiles of delight and Paul has ensured our wedding images will last a lifetime. If you are looking for an extraordinary photographer (who is also an amazing person) to capture your special moments Paul is it!

AIME + RHYS
Perth, WA

Wow! The photos are just amazing Paul – such a wonderful job you’ve done! After going through them all last night we were just so happy to be able to enjoy the day all over again, we couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces. We were so happy you were able to share our special day and knew the photos would be stunning after seeing the few you sent through the day after our wedding. So glad you got to capture the beauty of Lake Cave – those photos are just breathtaking – and every scenic shot we had was just incredible too! We are going to have trouble picking out ones to print out and frame! So a massive thank you to your wonderful eye and the hard work you’ve put into our album. We are both so grateful.

HOLLY + MATT
Busselton, WA

Blown away and beyond happy. Due to Paul’s sterling reputation, to our first meeting, all of his correspondence, and the personal experience with Paul on our big day, we simply cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism, passion and quality of work.  My husband and I found it so easy to work with Paul and everyone felt so at ease throughout the whole wedding experience knowing that we were getting so looked after.

For someone who dislikes having their photos taken, my husband was so relaxed under Paul’s direction and our whole day felt so natural.  Paul’s professionalism and experience meant that the photos we had were a breeze and he was very efficient.  We absolutely love the photos we got back and Paul got them to us so quickly which meant we could re live the memories. 11/10.

We will be utilising Paul in the near future without any hesitation for family photos.

Thank you Paul.

We couldn’t be happier we found Paul to photograph our wedding! From the initial meeting with him, we knew he’d be our photographer. He’s funny and easy going while still maintaining the highest professionalism. Paul showcased his work to us with our engagement shoot which helped us get even more excited for our upcoming big day due to his beautiful work. He eased us into the feeling of being photographed and made us feel so comfortable every step of the way. Our day couldn’t have gone smoother and I honestly didn’t notice Paul throughout most of the day, he blended into the background, let us enjoy our day and was always in the perfect spot to snap some truly amazing shots. Paul is amazing at what he does, and his awesome character is just a major bonus to the overall experience.

LIZ + TOM
Dalyellup, WA

Amazing, unique and beautiful, words we use to describe the photos produced by Paul from our wedding day. We couldn’t be happier that we chose Paul to capture the memories of our special day. The photos highlight the beautiful surrounds of the location where we were married and perfectly reflect the relaxed style of our wedding. From the beginning Paul demonstrated a commitment to excellent service. He replied to our emails promptly, met with us several times prior to the wedding and even attended our ceremony rehearsal. Paul’s outgoing yet professional manner helped to create a relaxed atmosphere on our special day, with many of our guests commenting about his positive presence at our wedding. We believe that the combination of Paul’s professional knowledge and skills, along with his friendly personality, make him an ideal choice for a wedding photographer. We highly recommend Paul to any couple planning their upcoming wedding.

CHERYL + LLOYD

We wanted to say an enormous thank you for taking such phenomenal photos of our wedding day. We are both so stoked with how they turned out and we can’t stop going through them! I don’t think you could have done a better job capturing the feeling of the day and those special un-staged moments that we will both remember the most. Can’t wait to see the prints on our wall at home. Thank you so much Paul.

KATE + BEN
Perth, WA

We are so over the moon about our album provided for our wedding day. Paul told the story of our day absolutely perfectly. Along with Paul’s amazing photography, the service was equally brilliant. Relaxed, very professional, and always in the right place at the right time. We could not be happier and will recommend him to everyone. You want a top professional? Don’t hesitate. Make sure you book Paul. Take if from us, you will be grateful you did.

KATE + PAUL
Collie, WA

We couldn’t be happier with the experiences we have had with Paul. His professional yet friendly and down to earth nature allowed for such a positive and calming experience before, during and after our wedding. Paul listened to our expectations and requests and used his sharp expertise and knowledge to capture some incredible photographs. We couldn’t be happier with the results.  We highly recommend Paul for any upcoming event you might have and will be spreading the word about his outstanding talent. Thank you again Paul!

Paul, thank you for perfectly capturing our wedding day. We absolutely love the photos. It was great to be able to work with such a professional and relaxed photographer, you listened to what we wanted and captured that and more. Your calmness was an absolute asset given the weather that day. Most of the time we didn’t even know you were taking pictures – we absolutely love all of the candid shots. We will be recommending you to everyone.

BILLIE + MICHAEL
Yallingup, WA

We were initially attracted to Paul as a wedding photography supplier because of the amazing shots we had seen incorporating incredible natural landscapes as well as candid shots carefully capturing special moments of weddings. We were amazed with the shots that Paul captured of our special day, which showcased the beauty of the Margaret River region and the happiness of us and our guests. The shot of us on the beach that Paul captured will be on our wall for years to come. As well as the amazing photographic work, the service we received from Paul was incredible. He was great to deal with in the lead up to our event and even went above and beyond and helped us through our wedding rehearsal when our celebrant couldn’t make it. Paul also managed to scope out some shots for us prior to the day so everything went as smoothly as possible and we got our money shot on the beautiful Prevelly beach. He put us at ease and was a joy to have around and we couldn’t be happier with choosing Paul for our wedding. We would be happy to recommend Paul to any other couples looking for a wedding photographer, particularly due to the professionalism and exceptional service we received.

KRYSTLE + TY
Melbourne, VIC

After seeing the quality of Paul’s work in a local publication we were incredibly excited to book him as our wedding photographer. We had a clear idea of the type of photos we wanted and Paul’s down to earth journalistic storytelling approach was exactly what we were after. He always made himself available and was very approachable and open to giving us exactly what we wanted. On the day he was unobtrusive and fun to have around, all the while capturing some great moments that we could have otherwise forgotten. For all of this Paul still managed to exceed our expectations and produce some amazingly beautiful photos. We would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!

LIZ + BEN
Bridgetown, WA

When it comes to photos of ourselves, my wife and I aren’t a huge fan and often shy away from the camera or hate to be in the spotlight. We went in search of Paul for our wedding day in the hopes that we would find someone who wouldn’t make us feel more awkward than we already were. From the first day of meeting up with Paul, he was chilled, relaxed and easy to chat to. He was willing to have a good laugh and made us actually excited to be a part of photos. On our wedding day, he prompted us to get caught up in our own bubble ‘or bubbles’. We and our family, were so impressed with how professional he was and the beautiful moments he captured on camera. Whether it be for a wedding, family moments or just a photo shoot to catch those awesome moments, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul for any occasion. We have plans to get a few more casual snapshots ourselves! Thanks so much Paul, you were fantastic and captured beautiful moments of us!

KAYLA + ROCHELLE

Paul we cannot thank you enough for the amazing photos of our wedding. We had high expectations given the stunning unique images on your website and it’s safe to say that we weren’t disappointed! Your professional and relaxed attitude calmed our nerves both leading up to and during our special day and your wealth of experience helped to ensure that we got all the magical artistic shots that we were after. We will cherish the memories of our wedding for the rest of our lives and thanks to your beautiful photos, those memories will never be too far away. We would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone, especially couples who planning their dream wedding in Margaret River!
