YOUR WEDDING DAY SHOULD BE EQUAL PARTS Joy & WONDER: LET’S CAPTURE IT THAT WAY!
When you invest with me, you're not just getting wedding photos; you're gaining an experience that leaves you looking amazing and feeling truly valued.
After the flowers have wilted and the cake has been eaten, the photography will be the one thing you have left. I aim to document all of the big moments and little details of your wedding day so you can relive them for years into the future
I don't believe in one-size-fits-all; I customize wedding collections for each couple, ensuring the best value for your unique day.
My approach is centered around creating a comfortable and authentic experience, so you can actually enjoy the most special day of your life, all while capturing beautiful images you will cherish for a lifetime.
For these reasons, it’s super important to me that I get to know you, your vision, and your values to guarantee that I can meet all your wedding photography wants and needs.
Each image you receive has been individually edited to look its best and can be easily shared or downloaded from your custom online gallery. But I love to take that a step further and deliver you art that is tangible and real.
For that reason, every couple I have the pleasure of photographing receives a custom Album Design to tell the story of their day, so they can cherish those special moments, now and for generations to come.
In addition to your digital files, I custom design an Album for every single one of my couples, creating a unique layout that displays the most precious memories from your wedding day. My goal is to create an heirloom that tells the whole story of your day, not just a mere "picture book." I then work with you one-on-one to finalize the finished layout of the Album.
These albums are hand-crafted in Italy (pretty fancy, huh?), with quality details, and options to customize and make your album even more special and unique.
In addition to crafting these stunning albums, I also assist my clients with choosing the perfect print and wall art options to enhance their homes or give as meaningful presents.
There's something truly special about watching couples relive the sentimental moments of their wedding day by adorning their homes with their most cherished images.
Together, we'll curate matted prints, framed canvases, metal prints, and other fine art treasures that will serve as daily reminders of the joy and love of your special day.
An integral part of my process is getting to know all about your story and everything you’re dreaming up for the big day. It’s important to make sure we’re aligned when it comes to what you value in your wedding photography.
Once you’ve booked, you’re welcomed into the PMC family with a welcome packet full of tips, tricks, and checklists to help you plan your special day.
I’m not the sort of wedding vendor that takes an initial payment and then goes radio silent for months. I’ll be in contact to offer my guidance with planning and help create a smooth and stress-free timeline for your wedding day.
I’ll be with you the whole time, capturing and elevating your wedding day experience by working hard and smart so you can trust that your most important moments won’t be missed.
You enjoy married life while I obsess over making your images perfect — backing up, sorting, editing, and designing custom artwork for you! Once everything is just right, I will see you two again for a special in-person Photo Reveal where we will relive the day and finalize all of your artwork.
A LOOK INSIDE
Here’s an overview of what you can expect working with PMC Photography. PMC is known for a personalized approach and creating a meaningful relationship — you’re a client for life.
My husband and I had a great experience working with Paul for our wedding. He was very professional and did a great job with handling large groups of people (especially my big crazy family).
He was very responsive as well as organized not only during our wedding, but before and after. We loved his work. Personally, I feel he has a great eye for capturing photos and making them look beautiful.
We definitely would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!
Paul was truly heaven-sent. To say he pulled through is an understatement. Paul was very responsive and we talked over the phone about our expectations. He made sure he understood our requests as well as suggested different types of "shots" & "looks" to go for.
The day of our wedding, from the get-go was an absolute delight to work with. He was able to capture some great pictures and I applaud him for how he interacted with my friends and family....there were some strong personalities! Paul exceeded our expectations and I absolutely recommend him!
My fiancée and I had an amazing session with Paul. He traveled over an hour to the mountains for the perfect engagement photo shoot. He made us both feel very comfortable, as I am not usually a photogenic person. He was very responsive and his turnaround on touch-ups was very quick.
I would recommend Paul to everyone in Southern California. If you want a professional, responsive, and easy-to-work-with photographer then Paul is the best choice.
I don’t photograph every couple that reaches out. I’m selective about the weddings I photograph, ensuring that my values align with yours and allowing me to deliver personalized, top-tier service and photography that exceeds expectations.
As a full-time wedding photographer, I'm committed to being there for you. I'll reply to your emails, texts, and calls within 24-48 hours, because your wedding is a big deal to me.
I believe that beauty is in the details. I obsess over the little things as much as I do over capturing your love story from its first chapter to 'happily ever after.'
To stay at the forefront of the industry, I attend 1-2 workshops, seminars, and trade shows every year. This way, I'm always up to date on the latest advancements, lighting techniques, and cutting-edge equipment.
The term “Natural Light Photographer” is very in fashion right now. But the reality is that natural light isn’t always enough. While my general approach is to make the most of the natural light available, I'm all in for those enchanting nights.
Whether I'm framing your wedding dress, crafting unique portraits, or catching candid moments, I'm always in a creative mindset. Expect everything from panoramas and environmental portraits to double exposures and inventive compositions.
Every couple has a unique love story, and your wedding should reflect that. I approach each wedding with a fresh perspective, weaving together photojournalism, diverse poses, advanced techniques, and a touch of creativity to make your day truly one-of-a-kind, while still maintaining a consistent quality.
Excellent question! I have proudly been capturing wedding moments for half a decade. Over the years, I’ve brought joy to dozens of couples and received glowing reviews. But, you probably already knew that, which is why you're here. So, allow me to shed light on a few aspects you might not be aware of:
what makes PMC different
One of the standout features PMC clients truly appreciate is our remarkable versatility. I excel in three distinct areas to cover every moment of your wedding day.
Firstly, my cinematic coverage is dedicated to crafting stunning, art-centric imagery from your wedding day. This photography style is a PMC signature, setting my studio apart from others.
I am equally skilled in photojournalism, adept at capturing creative documentary-style images during the fluid and unstaged segments of your wedding day.
Furthermore, I also offer a traditional approach, focusing on bright, enduring imagery that will stand the test of time.
Yes! I personally retouch every image you receive, ensuring consistency in style and quality.
While there’s no time limit for booking, sooner is always better. Rates do go up over time, and availability becomes scarcer the closer to your date we are. If you plan on booking an engagement session and using those photos for wedding announcements, 9 months out is recommended. Some clients book up to 2 years in advance.
While I usually recommend having a second photographer, dual coverage is not necessary for every wedding.
A second photographer gives additional opportunities to tell the story of your wedding day from more angles and will inevitably result in more candid photographs. It can also be very helpful depending on your timeline or schedule: if you want to make sure you get lots of photos of ceremony and reception details without sacrificing time from portraits, a second photographer would be a good idea. If you want getting ready photos of both you and your partner, but you’re getting ready at separate places, a second photographer is a must.
If you’re all about the classic portraits and not so much into the documentary-style candids, you might not need a second photographer.
The important thing to consider is making sure we capture your story as thoroughly as you desire. For smaller, intimate weddings, one photographer is usually sufficient.
The typical turnaround is 7-9 weeks from the date of your wedding to your special Reveal Session. This includes the editing, as well as design of your custom artwork. All of your images are personally retouched by me to ensure consistency and quality.
I’m located in San Diego, and I regularly photograph weddings throughout the greater Southern California area, including Orange County and Los Angeles County.
I’ve got a suitcase packed and ready! Travel is a passion for me, and I love exploring new locations with my couples!
Your story matters to me, and it's at the heart of my process. I believe in a personalized approach, getting to know you and your story to capture your wedding authentically while ensuring you can truly enjoy your special day.
