Did a headshot and portrait photo shoot with Paul. He was super flexible with my crazy schedules and timelines without compromising on quality or taking the time to make me feel comfortable. He worked to make sure I got the pictures I wanted and had a good eye for what pictures worked and what didn't. Affordable as well; hoping to do more photoshoots with him in the future.

Paul was amazingly helpful during our portfolio shoot at the park. He has a great eye for scenery, and knows how to make the model feel comfortable and assured of what looks good and what doesn't. He was punctual, he was immensely professional, he had a great spirit, he had his own setup and was very capable of co-directing my portfolio and headshots. The turnover time was also very quick and he had my photos back to me in a very reasonable amount of time, with a very professional level of retouching. He really is a versatile One Stop Shop for your photography needs and I look forward to working with him again in the future

Fun experience. The location her chose was absolutely beautiful. Paul is very sweet, caring, and amazing talent! He lol helped my “date day” work out and have amazing photos to help accomplish the mission for my husband. The turn around date was about 5 days, I was very happy to receive the email! Lol Recommend 10/10

Paul is a really solid and professional photographer and a really solid and genuine person. I was impressed from the moment of our first conversation. He did everything I asked him to do. He came to our home, he explained everything, he was very personable and very professional. He took all of the photos and all of them came out great. And Paul gave me great value for the project. I want to use Paul again. Paul will impress you and will do a great job for you. Thank you, Paul, thank you!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is always an all inclusive rate, there are no additional fees and of course it includes all the best images from the photo shoot. I like to just be upfront and only advertise the final price!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Usually when a new customer reaches out to me they have something in mind, step one is to have a quick conversation over chat or the phone to discuss what they have in mind! We’ll go over who’s being photographed, what’s the location, and any other key details that’s important to them. From there I can give a fair estimate and get them booked! On the day, we do the photo shoot and I can usually turn the edited photos around in a couple of days. If they need images faster I will work with them to make that happen!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've taken a few different photography classes but most of my education has come from working with other photographers throughout the years. In school, I shot sideline sports photography with a few other student photographers. Comparing settings and sharing what was working or not working we all learned from each other.
