David was awesome! We did a great shoot in a festive barn can't wait to show off my beautiful photos David was very professional in his manner, he met with me a few times to go over ideas, concepts and to show me examples of his work I will definitely work with David againAug 26, 2019VerifiedDavid Paul Photography's reply
Thank you Lyla. Boudoir photo can be really difficult, and I am glad that you noted my super professional demeanor. I am glad that you loved your photo shoot and will happily work with you again. Kudos to you for finding such a great location for the shoot!
First of all why did I want to have a boudoir shoot in the first place? I have lost 90 pounds and wanted to celebrate myself. From the very beginning David explained everything and answered all my questions. He listened to what I wanted and did his best to accommodate my requests. He showed me samples of his work and some ideas of his own. He was willing to travel as the location I selected was about an hour drive. He made the entire experience very enjoyable and very relaxing. We did a 3 hour shoot and let me tell you it was hard work, but David made it fun. He always presented himself in a very professional manner. He was always on time and his communication skills are top notch. He never left me wondering about the slightest details. He covered everything. I can't wait until I see the finished product. David made the entire shoot feel like I was with an old friend. I felt completely comfortable. I was not sure what to expect with a boudoir photo shoot but it was exciting and fun. I will definitely hire David again. I already want him to shoot my daughters senior pictures for school and I am already gathering thoughts for my next boudoir shoot . I wouldn't think of hiring anyone else. I have a feeling David will be our new photographer for anything that comes up in the future. Thanks David you were a great find, Signed a very please customer.Jul 19, 2017Verified
I was looking for a Professional Boudoir Photographer on the internet and I came across Thumbtack with a few Photographers in the field. I saw that David Paul already had good reviews so I gave him a try. From the very beginning of contact with David, he was very professional and communicative before, during, and after our photo shoot. The shoot went very, very well. During the shoot, David used state of the art Professional Photography equipment. He was very meticulous about his photographic abilities as he was photo shooting me. He was very helpful in giving me very good ideas about different poses to utilize for my pictures. I really appreciated that very much so! After the shoot, David carefully picked out the photos that would be good for me. David IS A PROACTIVE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER! HE IS MOTIVATED BY HIS LOVE OF PHOTOGRAPHY. He made me a VERY HAPPY, SATISFIED CUSTOMER! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND DAVID TO ALL NEW BOUDOIR MODELS! I will repeat service with David Paul! Hes a winner!Feb 10, 2016VerifiedDavid Paul Photography's reply
What an amazing review Amy! And you were true to your word - hiring me again to shoot your professional meddling portfolio in Miami Beach! Both of these shoots are among my all-time favorites. I look forward to many happy years being your photographer.
Wedding and Event Photography
David was amazing & professional even though I contacted him last minute to shoot my wedding. He even helped me by recommending an amazing venue. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!May 18, 2020VerifiedDavid Paul Photography's reply
Thanks Caleb! It has been difficult to be a photographer in COVID-19 times. Thanks for noticing that I accommodate my customers's need to be flexible under these difficult circumstances. Your wedding was small and awesome - the photos prove that you can have a great wedding with social distancing and mask use. I really appreciate your kind words!
David was awesome. He was thoughtful and very mindful of our needs. We took these pictures because my mother in law asked for updated family photos. We were all a bit unhappy that we all had to dress up and smile at a camera today, however, the moment David arrived, he changed our attitudes. He had us laughing and smiling. We had a lovely conversation at the end. It was truly a pleasure to be in his presence. Thank you David for making today easy and fun for us. You made it feel effortless.Dec 13, 2019VerifiedDavid Paul Photography's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer substantial discounts on weddings in the off season, typically December through March. My average savings is 30%. I also offer a 20% discount on non-Saturday weddings. I currently have two apprentices that have trained extensively with me - they are available at a much lower cost if your budget does not match my fees. Below are some of the other categories that I offer: • Weddings - Very Romantic Style Clean, Timeless Album Layouts. Great value considering my high level of skill and experience • Seniors - Creative, on-location outdoor images.Less than 1/2 price of studio photographers • Boudoir - Romantic & sexy images taken in a safe, professional, & understanding environ • Families - I am patient & kind - I love to work with small children, teens, & adults • Commercial - lots of experience with conferences, real estate, jewelry, & events • Pets - love them! I enjoy photographing them alone, or with their master • Ethnic events - I research everything, and have photographed Hindu weddings, including sangeeth, bar mitzvahs, christenings, and every ethnic wedding imaginable
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Most folks make initial contact with email, and then with to phone contact. I spend a good deal of time assessing your exact needs, so I understand exactly what you would like me to do, and what your needs are for finished products. I then write a contract specifically outlining what it to be done, and what everyone's responsibility is. :)
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I constantly train with the best professional photographers in the world. I have done training workshops with Bob Davis, Jerry Ghionis, and Mike Colon, and many others. These workshops have honed my skills in lighting (particularly off-camera flash, posing, and destination weddings.
