So to keep it really brief, Paul Hawkett photography is simply just me. I'm a proud Yorkshire man and lived in the county all my life. Prior to my days as a photographer I worked as an aircraft engineer for 18 years before finally making the switch to becoming a photographer in 2012. I shot my first solo wedding the same year and have never looked back since. Fast Forward Ten years on and I now get to call myself an award winning photographer after receiving the international title of SWPP Photojournalist Wedding Photographer of the year at the beginning of 2017. I still can't quite believe how good that feels.  

When I'm not working behind the camera, I spend most of my time with my beautiful family, watching my lads turning into fine young men, a game of golf and walking my golden retriever Callie.
