Paula and Jessyca were outstanding! First of they are sweet hearts and so easy to work with. They think of creative posses, and notice when the littlest things are out of place to help make your pictures perfect. They are wonderful with kids, everyone knows how difficult it can be to keep kids attention spans, but on top of that making them smile and laugh for pictures. All the pictures we had with our flower girl and ring bear couldn't have turned out any better, they always have a smile! I love my wedding pictures, and will treasure them for years to come. I will be recommending Passionate Portraits to family and friends with upcoming weddings and special events!

Paula has been the absolute best to work with. She was excited about the types of pictures we wanted to do and had lots of really cool creative ideas. She took so many amazing pictures that it took us 5 hours to make our final decisions! She is very reasonably priced and the quality of her work was fantastic. We would recommend her to anyone and we plan to use her again and again as our family grows.

Paula is an exceptional photographer, she has an eye for capturing unique pictures which make lasting memories as well as like no other photographer. She is very flexible and extremely easy to work with and she works with people rather than being stringent. I would recommend her very highly.

My wife and I really enjoyed our time with Paula. She made our picture taking experience fun. I believe she went out of her way to accommodate us with all of our requests. She was very imaginative with her ideas for pictures so that things didn't get so monotonous during all of the pictures that get taken through out the day. If i had to put anything down for a criticism it would be that she was almost too nice. If that's possible. She was great to work with and has been recommended to and used by other friends of ours.
