Paul was a fantastic photographer for my wedding. We spent hours on the phone going over his packages and what he had to offer, which was great pricing by the way. He never pressured us into anything we didn't want to do and was always open to others suggestions. He had a great spreadsheet that helped him stay on track with timing and who was who during family photos. He's cautious and understanding of the vision we wanted for our wedding photos but also offered his professional advise. The package we chose came with a 2nd photographer. I definitely recommend this. It seems like you wont need him but he really is able to capture moments and photos that you cant do with one person. Paul was able to direct him and he followed his footsteps. They did a great job together and I cannot wait to see our pictures as I am sure they all came out beautifully.

My husband and I hired Paul for our photos for our wedding in August. We started working with him many months before. He was so great to work with throughout the entire process from engagement photo session until the day of and beyond. All of the photos turned out absolutely beautiful! He has an amazing eye and knows how to give the proper direction. We are very pleased we decided to go with him and we highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks Paul for everything!

Paul did an AMAZING job and we couldn't have been any happier! I met him at a bridal bizarre booth and instantly we clicked...I met a few other photographers and I didn't seem to get a cordial vibe from any of the others. We set up our engagement photo session on the beach at sunset and our pictures were beyond spectacular! We took our pictures at our exact engagement spot and Paul captured that special moment perfectly. Down the road, we discussed our wedding day timeline by the minute in detail...for me, this is exactly what I needed to feel more at ease when the BIG DAY arrived. As time passed, all the sunny summer months of planning was perfect...then came rain on the ONLY day after 4 dry months! Yes, a rainy beach wedding with no Plan B of what to expect to tell guests and our vendors...and yes, our photographer was AWESOME and handled this situation with ease. He told us that our wedding was quite "unique" compared to other traditional weddings...and we couldn't have agreed more! Everyone said that when it rains on your wedding day that it means that we are LUCKY IN LOVE! The pictures Paul took of my bridesmaids getting our hair and make-up done were adorable and our beach shots were breathtaking. He captured so many guests having fun on the dance floor. ALL our pictures turned out gorgeous and we have Paul to thank for making it happen!

Paul was the photographer for my wedding on March 1st. I really feel like he listened to everything we said in the consultation. He was so professional and great on the day of and we are thrilled with the photos!

We had a small guest list, about 20 people total, so the personality of the photographer was just as important as the talent. Paul is so calm and relaxed, but also funny! He definitely fit right in with the group. He was always nearby capturing all of the important shots, but was never too overbearing like I have seen some photographers be. He did all of the classic portraits, even though I got a little grumpy (I don't like to pose) he took it in stride and kept things fun and moving along. There was a LOT of rain, that caused a little chaos for our outdoor wedding. Paul handled it amazingly well. He made the best out of any setting.

We were so happy when our pictures were posted. They were better than we could have imagined! We also ordered an album and 2 smaller versions for our parents. We got the digital proof for that yesterday, it is amazing! We didn't have a single edit or change.

Paul was absolutely great! He is so easy to get along with, very organized, and was very accommodating with regard to picture requests. Paul quickly responded to emails and/or phone calls to answer any questions we may have had. My daughter and future son-in-law lived out of state and did not have the opportunity to meet Paul before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, because of Paul's great personality, everyone was very much at ease and all went smoothly. The pictures are beautiful. I would definitely recommend Paul and if the need for a photographer comes in the future, we will definitely call Paul.

Paul did a fantastic job at my son's wedding. We knew he was awesome when we saw the shots from the engagement photo's from last year, but he outdid himself at the wedding.

He is so easy going and willing to take whatever pictures we wanted. The wedding was at Tom Ham's Lighthouse and the shots that he took were amazing. We received the pictures back yesterday and will have a hard time deciding on which ones to print.

He was also willing to work with us on creating a package that worked within our budget. It was so wonderful to get a photographer with his talent and expertise. I will recommend him to everyone I know.

Thanks Paul!

Paul was an amazing photographer for our wedding! What I really liked about Paul was how much he cared that he captured the moments we wanted. We didn't just want the serious every wedding has pictures, but also wanted fun pictures. Paul was able to capture the important moments as well as the fun moments.

On the day of the wedding Paul was very out of the way. I didn't even notice him most of the time, but the pictures show he was at the right place at the right time.

Would recommend him to everyone and anyone.

We had Paul photograph our wedding last weekend and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!

When looking for our wedding photographer, my husband and I concentrated on a few things:

- We wanted someone who would capture the important (and not so important) parts of the day without being an overly apparent part of the activities. We have been to too many weddings where we felt like the photographer was just as visible as the bride and wanted to avoid that.

- We wanted pictures that would capture our personalities and not make us look over posed. It's extremely unlikely that one would ever find my husband and me laughing hysterically as we skipped through a grassy meadow wearing galoshes and carrying parasols.

- We wanted someone who was laid back and down to earth and who would not only make us feel comfortable, but all of our wedding guests as well.

Upon meeting Paul and looking through his work, I could tell that he was very laid back, client focused, and incredibly talented at what he does. Then, when my husband met him, he immediately stated that Paul was 'the photographer'...which says a lot, as it was one of the few times that my stereotypically indifferent groom had an opinion during the wedding planning process ;-)

Paul did indeed match exactly what we were hoping for! I barely noticed him throughout the event, but know that he was there capturing every beautiful detail. Paul understood that we wanted very natural shots and worked with us to capture great photos while we didn't feel awkward. And, he made everyone he interacted with at the wedding feel comfortable. Not surprisingly, several family members and friends actually came up to me after the wedding to tell me how awesome and laid back they thought the photographer was!

I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone looking for a talented, friendly, and down to earth photographer!

Paul is the best!!! When I sat with my fiance and we discussed what would be the most important things for us to both have for our wedding (besides each other) he said a great time/party and I said photography. We met with Paul and knew right away that he was perfect for us. Professional, comfortable, funny, warm....perfect! We love our pictures and they are the perfect memories from our perfect day! Thank you Paul, for all your hard work and wonderful results!!
