Paula graduated from the University of Ulster in 1997 after completing a Visual Communications Degree. She worked as a designer/art editor in Northern Ireland for over 12 years. It was her time spent working as a designer for bridal and lifestyle magazines that gave her the taste for photography with a stylish, editorial feel. Since 2008, Paula decided to concentrate solely on her work as a photographer. She has been commissioned to shoot weddings and bridal editorial all over Ireland and internationally. She lives in Bleary with her very patient hubbie Des, her two children Seanan and Niamh, the cats and Molly the hyperventilating Wheatie.
