About Chris Paulis Photography

So, he just popped the question?! Congratulations! This is one of the most thrilling times of your life, and if you haven't already, you will soon learn that weddings are a lot of work -- not to mention, costly! Well, that's where I hope I can help!

I begin by getting to know you, and I push to convey the inner values and emotions that make you who you are, and not just the fleeting outer appearances and stock poses. Years from now, when you look at your images, I want you to be moved by them and drawn into the moments that made them memorable. But I would also like you to remember me with fondness!

This means that I feel my images should tell your story and not mine; when you hire me, I am at your service rather than the other way around! I'll do everything I can to make your day great, even if that means changing my plans, calming your mom, or putting down the camera to help with that corsage. I loathe the stereotype of the photographer who thinks he runs the show and everyone should be on his agenda.

I offer a strong photojournalistic (storytelling) approach that utilizes both natural light and creative, off-camera strobes, to bend, shape, and carve the light as I see it. Photography is interpretive; and my interpretation of a wedding is that it is the beautiful pulling of two incredible individuals and families into one heart! Your photos will convey that!

As for pricing, I'm very flexible. I do publish particular prices for various wedding packages, and you can see those on my web site. Those prices range from the bare-bones, one-photographer price of $999, to the higher-end two-photographer, whistles-n-bells package with loads of features. While you can opt for a wedding or other package that is economical -- involving only one photographer -- I will recommend that you consider one that provides a second photographer/assistant. This enables us to collaborate to make the very finest images! I also invite you to visit my web site and blog, where I try to exemplify my work and educate clients. Here you can also find and download price lists. If you don't see something you wish, just ask! I will gladly answer questions and even build a wedding package from scratch to meet your needs and budget. That is to say, my published prices are starting points; although they accurately reflect what we need and feel we deserve for what we will give you!

Yes, weddings are my passion, but that doesn't mean exclusively. I shoot all types of events; studio and location portraits; professional head shots; and other commercial applications. I would love to be one of the great memories you have of your wedding day, and I will work before and after that day to ensure it!

    We found Chris to be very responsive, flexible, and easy to work with. The day of our wedding, he was there to serve us and do whatever we needed regarding the photography. Chris was very considerate and thought of extra details to capture our wedding day in a special way, even when we had many other things on our minds leading up to the wedding and the day of. Chris has a real servant's heart and cares about the job he does, really wants to provide the highest quality work. Have NO reservations recommending his photography services to others. We did not have a lot of time to shop around, found his prices to be very competitive. Flexible regarding upgrades we are now considering for our wedding album. Ordered sample materials and took the time to explain the differences in materials and finishes for our album. Very creative, we are looking forward to seeing what he comes up with for our album.

    Chris Paulis put in the time well before the wedding or rehearsal dinner, working with me on the list of pictures I wanted to have, and visiting the venue to scout out the best places for natural lighting, and scenic shots. On the day of the wedding the picture taking went smoothly, and the results looked absolutely perfect as a result. I chose the basic package from Chris, and had a couple hundred great shots to choose my top 100 pictures from. Overall I am very happy with my wedding pictures, and may take him up on one of his well-crafted "professional scrapbook" style wedding albums!

    It was such a pleasure working with Chris Paulis! He took care of every want and desire from our beautiful engagement pictures, rehearsal dinner, to wedding preparations, wedding ceremony, wedding reception, and portraits! It really meant a lot to my husband and I to have him as our photographer!

    The engagement photos were more than I could have asked for. I had indicated the location and was thrilled to learn that he had staked out ideal shot locations in advance of our photo session. We were amazed at how you were able to both incorporate and compromise our wish list with the necessary elements for beautiful photographs.

    It was such a treat to have him there for the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner too! Our rehearsal was far from ordinary with our football tailgate theme and I love the fact that I have gorgeous pictures of my friends and family; jerseys and all. I think this is an option that most brides don't think about but I truly treasure and recommend!

    I was so grateful to have candid shots of the girls and I as we were getting ready for the wedding. This is something that really adds to the whole experience as well as an opportunity to look back later, at a less hectic time, and share fond memories with my bridesmaids. By nature I am a very laid back person so it was important to me to have not just the formal pictures but candids too in order to truly tell the entire story of my special day!

    It also meant a lot that Chris was flexible in having portraits taken either before or after the wedding. We chose to have the majority of our portraits taken before the wedding so that our guests and the wedding party could head to the reception quickly. It was relieving to know that in the event of a makeup disaster due to tears at the wedding...LOL...my pictures were already done! It also meant the world to me that he had taken into consideration the fun loving attitude that my husband and I both share and incorporated that into the portraits of the wedding party. When people view our pictures they always comment on the Ravens footballs and different poses that you choreographed. I LOVE IT!!!!

    The traditional wedding photos are also a treasured part of the collection you have provided. I was pleasantly surprised to see pictures of the flower arrangements and decorations at the church and reception. These were not pictures that I had requested ahead of time and I am very grateful that he thought to take them. The flowers and decorations were very beautiful and we would not be able to remember them so vividly without the photos.

    In the early stages of my engagement I attended a bridal show and saw a photo book as opposed to a wedding album. I thought this was an excellent idea and was pleased to find out I would be able to request one. Words can not describe my absolute amazement with what he provided! Our photo book well exceeds those that I had seen at the bridal shows. The attention to detail and creativity simply amazes me! The photo book is one of my most valued possessions and I will treasure it always. Words can not describe my gratitude.

    Overall the experience surpassed ALL expectations! I have been to other weddings and seen the way that photographers can be intrusive and distracting during ceremonies and act as though they control the spotlight. This was hardly the case with Chris.

    I would recommend Chris Paulis to any upcoming bride.
