Welcome to Arrow Photography
Taking photographs is easy, recording the event in a memorable way takes expertise.
Welcome to Arrow Photography – partners Kirstie and Paul Hayler. We are based in Selsey, West Sussex, and cover West Sussex, East Sussex and Hampshire.
'I have been a professional photographer for all of my working life – 23 years. We offer wedding, portrait and commercial services,
aiming to give the most creative, artistic, professional and affordable photography on the market. From presentational commercial
photography to elegant and enthralling wedding and portrait photography we manage every aspect of each unique project and assignment.
If you are planning your wedding and looking for a photographer – congratulations! You will want photographs of yourselves that are creative,
romantic and artistically taken…. which is why I leave nothing to chance and photograph everything that is magical just as you wish it to be.
I have photographed over 150 weddings, and am still excited by the possibilities that the next wedding has to offer photographically.
Your wedding photographs will be something that you, your families and friends will treasure forever. My style is friendly and relaxed,
enabling me to capture all of those special moments with the minimum of fuss.
Which leads me on to … my first job as a photographer was on board a cruise ship in the Carribean and it was here that I got a taste
for portraiture - photographing local kids in their natural environment. My photographs were interesting in that the subjects posed for the
camera but had no sense of self-doubt at all. If they pulled poses, they oozed confidence. Of course a percentage of photographs taken at a
wedding are candid in every sense, with the subject having no idea that they are being photographed, resulting in a slice of ‘real time’ photography.
Many Wedding Photographers boast that their style is entirely reportage. But let’s be honest, you probably don’t have the confidence of those kids
in the Carribean. This ease in front of the lens is something that we English struggle with. I like to give you a little help and direction on the day,
and it is here that I find the challenge in enabling even the shyest of Wedding Couples to literally let loose and look amazing and most of all,
to find the fun in modelling. So back to where we started… I do fuss, just a little bit in the right places, but all in the great cause of catching
images where you will look like movie stars.
Paul has been photographing as well as working in print and web design for 31 years. He founded his own design business and also spent many years
teaching graphic and web design. For our Wedding Couples Paul takes care of the editing, slide shows, web galleries and preparing work for print.
For Commercial Clients he offers a full in- house design and presentation service.
Thank you for looking – we look forward to hearing from you.’
