“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. Looking at our wedding photos helped us to relive the moments from our special day. He captured all the moments we wanted and got everyone where they needed to be. 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!”


Hiring Paul was the best decision we made. He is so talented and personable. Both our engagement session and wedding photos took our breath away. Everyone was wowed by the photos and asked for his information. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he made the whole experience so delightful. My husband and I are a bit camera shy, and Paul made it so easy and comfortable while getting breathtaking photos. Everyone wants great pictures to remember their special day, and that is exactly what you will get with Paul!”


“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. Paul also sent me a questionnaire regarding specifics which was very helpful. He made sure he understood our requests as well as suggested different types of “shots” & “looks” to go for.

The day of our wedding he was on time…well even better, early! And 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!

Thank you, Paul, for making our vision come true and being a part of our special day.”

“My husband and I are literally so grateful and feel so blessed to have met and worked with Paul. We did a couples photoshoot, and we are extremely content with the results! From the moment we stepped foot at the location, everything ran smoothly. We genuinely had fun and laughed a lot which reflected very well in our pictures. I personally appreciate the words of affirmation we got from both Paul and his assistant throughout our photoshoot. The results literally look like they are straight out of a magazine. If you are looking to shoot with someone professional, extremely kind, talented, and truly captures unforgettable memories, Paul is your guy and I confidently recommend him. You’ll thank me later!”


“Paul is one of the nicest people to be around, and on top of that, a master of his art. Working with him was a true pleasure, and made the experience of having a professional photographer so pleasant, that we now want to plan future shoots… Can you guess who will shoot the shots? You guessed it! My man Paul! Thank you so much for capturing all of the memorable moments at our wedding, and your attention to detail in getting the best versions of us at our couples shoot.”

“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.”


“Paul is the best!!!!! He really is so chill and makes the whole experience so easy and comfortable. He is also so quick with his work with the final results. Couldn’t recommend him enough.”
