Best photographer this side of the Mississippi!
Paul was nothing short of AMAZING!! You know you have a fabulous photographer when you are looking at the photos and you have all the same emotions that you did in that exact moment that he captured. Reliving our special day through Paul's photos was the best and I know I made the right decision by choosing him. The attention to detail and creativeness that he has makes it so you don't have to worry about a thing while enjoying your day. Not only did he make our day stress free, he was immediately in contact with me the next day with a few teasers and had all of my edited photos to me 8 days later!!!!!! All of our future family photos and special events will be shot by him without a doubt.Sent on 10/04/2020

Engagement Photos Review
Paul did an amazing job capturing our engagement photos. He was wonderful to work with and displays his passion in his work. We can't wait to work with him again at our 2021 wedding!Sent on 09/07/2020

So good. So so so good! Amazing!
The most genuine photography experience! Paul shot our engagement session and was incredible to work with. The weather wasn't the best for my hair (curls and rain don't mix), we met on location and he offered for us to reschedule, which I thought was incredibly thoughtful of him. He allowed us to be posed and also allowed us to create natural poses for ourselves. Paul is down to earth, accommodating, honest, and a true talent. We have worked with other photographers in the area and Paul differs in his passion. He really wants you to like your photos, and takes the time to get the photo right. I have had experiences with others that just pump you in and out. He got our photos back to us in less than 24 hours, and knew I was worried about my hair (girl problems) even after editing and retouching them, he offered to meet up with us again if I wasn't satisfied. I highly recommend Paul for any and everyone. His passion is unmatched!Sent on 05/29/2019
Fotoimpressions always captures the day with amazingly vivid detail. We love working with them.
We have worked with Fotoimpressions for many years at many weddings. We enjoy working with them to make the couples' wedding day extra special.
I met Paul at Brenna's wedding and the pictures were beautiful! Brenna shared with me all the beautiful photos he took.
