Paul Barnett's work is evidence of his unobtrusiveness and his quick and spontaneous eye. Paul is invisible during the process, allowing his subjects to be relaxed, and most importantly, be themselves. With predecessors of the photo-documentary movement such as Henri Cartier Bresson and Helen Levitt, Paul's photographic intuition allows him to release the shutter at the decisive moment. Paul Barnett's wedding images embrace the concept of both perspective and attitude. Based on a mandate to be truly reactive rather than proactive and a dedication to record events as a historian rather than a director. The final result; a collection of photographs, genuine and unrehearsed, that bring to life the small idiosyncrasies that define us as individuals, close family and good friends. Paul Barnett's unique style and quality craftsmanship is known throughout North America, Europe and Mexico, as he has been commissioned to photograph weddings from New York, to Hawaii, as well as Copenhagen, Berlin, and London. Paul's photographs have been published internationally and he frequents the pages of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Inside Weddings and Martha Stewart Weddings.
