Our experience with Paul and Lisa
My husband and I would like to share our experience with Paul and Lisa from Pauls Vegas Photography. They shot our wedding on September 14, 2014 in Las Vegas. With this review we would like to appreciate their work.
Getting in touch
While comparing different photographers, Paul and Lisa made an impression on us from the very beginning. Not only was their bid a personal and individual text (not a standardized one like some others), but also they explained to us that Paul and Lisa (almost) always shoot together to make sure that no angle of a good photo perspective gets lost. Their dedication for their work stood out, which we liked, so we decided to book them.
Preparations from Germany
Paul and Lisa emailed us a contract and offered their help if we needed any assistance. They arranged a hair and makeup artist for us to come to our hotel on our wedding day and made sure that everything else is settled. Whenever I emailed them, I received an answer right away, which made us feel being cared for unconditionally. Also they put a lot of effort to find a suitable location and suggested a marriage reverend called Tammy Engel for us to conduct the ceremony, which was very helpful. All in all, we felt in really good hands, which is certainly what you wish for one of your most memorable days :-)
When we arrived in Las Vegas a few days before our wedding, Paul und Lisa suggested to meet up to discuss the last details and to get to know each other before the big day. We had a lovely chat in a bar - Paul, thanks again for paying our drinks! - and we had the feeling of meeting good friends instead of two complete strangers. Paul and Lisa have a special charisma, its not hard to feel comfortable around them. They were very attentive to our wishes and worries and even thought about a variety of extraordinary places where we could do the shooting so we would have pictures to remember. They also pay great attention to things like restrictions where its legal to shoot and where not and everything else that an amateur photographer might possibly not think of. So knowing that they have years of experience made us feel even more in good hands.
The big day
After having arranged everything in advance, they picked us up at our hotel and our photo shooting began. Paul and Lisa brought two cameras, light and other equipment and were very professional, patient and creative. We didnt have to care about getting to the spots in Las Vegas since Paul drove us everywhere in his car. Since we both didnt have any experience in modeling, it was a great help that Paul and Lisa always told us where to stand, where to put our hands and where to look. But they were also very welcoming when we contributed own ideas of how to pose for the camera. For us, it was a fantastic experience to enjoy our wedding day while Paul and Lisa did all the work :-)
Receiving the photos
Shortly after the wedding, Paul and Lisa emailed us some first impressions of the shooting to send them to our families and friends at home, which is a very nice touch, I think. After three weeks of our USA west coast round trip we came back to Las Vegas and Paul told us that he had finished the photos by that time. So we met him in his studio and received a CD of more than 200 pictures most of them edited. Words are not enough to praise the quality of them. The use of light, of perspectives, of angles, etc. are just perfect. We were extremely proud to show them to everybody at home and received tons of compliments. Also we would like to thank Tammy and Paul again for helping us with the bureaucratic work that came up after the wedding since we had to leave the USA soon.
If we were to choose a photographer for a wedding or any other event in the region of Las Vegas, we would definitely contact Paul and Lisa again. We can recommend them unconditionally. They are friendly, experienced, professional, funny, helpful, generous, and attentive. Our wedding pictures came out great and that is exactly what we wished for our once-in-a-lifetime wedding day! Thank you very much!
