I want to tell your love story from a fresh perspective and with real moments. I strive to turn your love into art. Sure, it may sound corny, but it’s true. It’s my passion. My style can best be described as photojournalism meets quirky photography. I’m constantly brainstorming and pushing my creativity to new heights with every shot. Simply said, I am the kind of person who enjoys making others happy and having a good time while I work. It’s all about the good times and now I get to photograph them. It’s as simple as that!

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I always edit each individual image with an array of small enhancing edits. I also take it one step further for those images that really get your attention. I try not to take away for the integrity of an image with my editing. My work is about you not the editing I do.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I love the light and lack there of at times. I am well prepared for all situations. As a photographer you MUST be, so yes I have been through the best and worst situations and come out on top each time.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital, although I do have a background with film and can appreciate the art of film. I strongly believe one can get the same effect through digital without charging an arm and a leg through film.
How many photographers do you work with?
I work alone unless an assistant is called for. If my package calls for a second photographer, then my second is an actual photographer who knows my work and is strong on his or her own.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
I AM the photographer who shoots your event, bar none.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I have scheduled 2 events in a weekend but it's a rare occasion when it happens. I generally keep it to one per weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I do and my replacement is a trusted photographer who knows my style and has similar work ethics as I do.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I work with a Canon 5d MarkII and I generally bring as much equipment with me that I can, without being a hassle. I bring a variety of lenses, flashes for lighting situations and of course a dependable backup camera.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Lie I said, preparation is key. Yes I always bring backup with my equipment.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Both, I can quote hourly or I generally book packages that are full day options.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
That is subject to the package and time in the day/evening.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I generally am always in shoot mode. I have my camera at my side ready for any situation even when I am taking a break. IF I do take a break, I am just off to the sides I would never leave the floor to break, not my style. I do not require a meal but it is always appreciated to have one.
Do you charge for travel?
I do have a travel fee outside 50 miles of the Austin area.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I try to keep a schedule of 3-4 weeks. Normally a lot sooner than that! I do incorporate a small preview within a week.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
I offer proofs via a website gallery, CD or even a personal sit down with my clients if desired.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
They are yours to keep, I just have the honor to shoot them.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I do retain rights but I also provided limited rights to my clients.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I do have the right to use the images for promotional use via the website or other means of advertising. Although I am ALWAYS attentive to my clients wishes and if for some reason they didn't want me to use images for specific reason, I would happily take their wishes into consideration.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
I do not provide digital files or negatives as a part of packaging. I provide heResolution jpegs that can be used for printing and/or social media.
Will images be available for viewing online?
I do provide an online gallery for viewing with all the packages that I offer. This is generally a password protected gallery that can be shared with friends and family.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer flush mount coffee albums and I also do parent albums.
When will the client get the final album?
Final albums can take longer due to publication and production during wedding season.

I cannot express just how happy we were, and how wonderful of a job Paul did for our us and our wedding!!! The Pix in a Box Photo Booth was an absolute HIT! People loved it, and are still complementing us on how much fun it was, over a month after the wedding. :) Paul was patient, friendly, professional and pleasant with our families and guests at the ceremony, and was especially kind to my elderly grandmother, who had some trouble getting around. People felt very comfortable around both him and his 2nd Shooter, and they were never underfoot or obtrusive. At every step in the process, Paul was communicative and professional, and we really enjoyed our time with him. THANK YOU, PGL PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! :D <3

We are thrilled to have found Paul for our wedding! He met with us several times over a year for a series of engagement photos, bridals, and provided full day-of coverage all on a very tight budget. Paul is an outstanding photographer and amazing person! He was incredibly flexible working with our odd schedules, shoots with our dog, and even did my bridal shoot a mere 7 days before the wedding! Even with short notice he delivered with printed 8x10's for our sign in table as promised.
He made the awkward shooting experience relaxing and FUN, we will be staying in touch for a long time to come. We are definitely clients for life!

There are no words to describe how amazing Paul performed for our wedding and engagement. His eye for detail and framing is unmatches. Nearly every picture taken conveys the emotion and uniqueness of the event. His demeanor and professionalism are world class. I can't imagine getting a better photographer for anything we'd ever need. Paul made our engagement and wedding every bit as special as we wanted it to be and we are in his debt for capturing it.

There are no words to say how amazing Paul really is. I found him almost on accident and I cannot tell you what an amazing blessing that was! From my first meeting with him he was extremely professional and very helpful! Trust me when I saw I was a very stressed out Bride and I could not have done it without Paul. He did my engagement shoot, and my entire wedding. He was always on time, was professionally dressed, and was all over the wedding without being even slightly intrusive. My family adored him, from my 6 year old daughter to my grandmother – he was definitely a hit! I knew his work was amazing but I have to tell you, when I returned from my honeymoon to find that he had already prepared a ton of my photos, I was blown away. Every time I thought, “I wish he would have gotten a shot with us over there”, I would look, and there it was, more beautiful than I could have imagined. I have no regrets, every photo I wanted of my amazing day Paul got. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

He also helped out a lot during the wedding, whatever was needed he did his best to help. He made us feel very comfortable. His photo booth was also very fun and very creative. Overall, I'm very glad we found Paul Lizama because he was honestly the best choice. All of our friends and family couldn't agree more.

Paul was amazing. My family and friends were so impressed with him that for weeks after our wedding, I had people still telling me how much they enjoyed our photographer.
He had a second shooter with him. My pictures look amazing!!!! My husband and I have been so impressed with Paul. He was willing to take us where ever we wanted to go for our engagement pictures. He spent hours with us to make sure that we got every shot that we wanted and we did.
He was pleasent to all our guest at our wedding both of our parents really liked him. He would even stop to show me an great or fun shot that he just got. He was super easy and very flexibility to work with. I would recommend him for another bride.
To be honest when he came to delivery our pictures, my husband and I asked if he would mind doing another Photo session for us.
