On WeddingWire since 2010

Creative Interpretations Photography is a wedding photography service based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Saint Petersburg, FL. We have had the honor of capturing the memories of over 900 couples, and we would love the opportunity to help tell your story.

Our Promises to Our Couples.

It's Your Day, Not Ours.

Each wedding is unique. There is no set number of photographs that can tell the story of your day. That is why we do not limit the number of photographs you receive. While other studios send you their highlight reel, Creative Interpretations Photography captures your complete journey.

Capture The Moment, Don't Become It.
We are here to tell a story, your story. While we will provide our professional guidance as you proceed throughout the day, we will make sure our focus is capturing your vision throughout.

Your Day, Your Way.

While our standard wedding package gives you a solid foundation, we allow you to customize your experience with additional products and services.

Finally, Get To Know Your Photographer.
We are a collection of professional wedding photographers who all have different styles but the same focus, YOU. Visit our CIP Team page to see whose style fits your vision of the day.

Outstanding quality and service!!!

Overall, outstanding photography service provided by Paul and team!! From day one, Paul was extremely quick to respond to us! He listened to exactly what we wanted, made our experience extremely unique and personal, and provided recommendations based on his years of experience. He told us exactly what to expect from him and Michelle on our wedding day and delivered on his promise! Paul and Michelle made us both feel special as well as our wedding party and family. It almost felt like they were a part of our wedding - extremely positive direction, fun, and inclusive. They both took extra time making sure we had all of the group shots we wanted, including a drone shot of our entire wedding group! The photos came out absolutely amazing!! Paul still stayed in contact with us after the fact to make sure we were satisfied with the service provided! 100% satisfaction with this absolutely stellar team! Thank you so much for capturing our greatest memories!

There was not a question in my mind what photographer I wanted to hire when I got engaged and married! After seeing Paul and Jonathan's work, they were the very first vendor I booked for my wedding! They were professional in every aspect-they were able to control the crowd and keep everything moving on schedule, got all of the shots we requested, added input on other creative pictures and poses and did it all with a smile. I am SO happy with how our photos came out, they captured a great mix of the wedding party, the guests, the details and decor and general wedding candids. Without question I would recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer! They are the BEST!!!!!

I can not say enough about Creative Interpretations! Paul, the owner, was very professional throughout the entire process and was so accepting of our "non-traditional" wedding. Paul and Kat made our wedding day absolutely amazing. I couldn't have asked for better picture quality and you could tell that they both genuinely enjoyed what they do. Paul even went out of his way to send us a jump drive with all of our pictures on it (for free!!) because he was not pleased with how long it took them to get our pictures uploaded. My wife and I were quite pleased with the promptness of our picture upload but Paul sent a jump drive as an apology anyway, that is how amazing the people at Creative Interpretations are!

As a young officiant starting off in this area over a year ago, Paul was the photographer for one of my very first "Baltimore Area" ceremonies. Since my experience with him, I have held every other photographer up to his standards, and most have not stood a chance. From the casual details, such as spotting a hair tie on my wrist and suggesting I remove it, to the more important finishing touches, social media outreach, and overall professionalism, Paul and his incredibly talented crew of photographers will give every attention both big and small to assure you have candid shots of your entire event. If you want to have a team that truly cares about you and your special day, I encourage you to reach out to Creative Interpretations immediately- you won't regret it for a second.

Weddings On Memory Lane Weddings On Memory Lane Barn & Farm Weddings

Creative Interpretations was the photographer at our venue, Weddings On Memory Lane, on Sept 19, 2015. They took advantage of the abundance of photo opportunities around the property and supplied the bride and groom, and there families, with a large amount of absolutely beautiful photographs! They were even able to capture photos of the couple during a breathtaking sunset! There were 2 photographers and they didn't seem to miss a moment on camera! I would highly recommend them as your wedding photographer! We will definitely be referring them as our top choice photographer to all our clients!
