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

Truly talented and personable!
This past weekend Paul happened to be the photographer at a close friend’s wedding. He made such an impression with his winning personality and work ethic that I just had to stop by and give him some praise. I assumed his work would be wonderful, but then no less than 24 hours after the wedding he shared a sneak preview via social media and was even kind enough to tag us. Unbelievably beautiful images!!Ladies and gentleman, this man is phenomenal on every level imaginable. If you’re looking for someone who’s insanely down to earth, someone who calms, disarms, and captures your best then look no further. Thank you for being such a great addition and compliment to the wedding Paul. We can’t wait to see the photos, especially the images from Lisa’s toast!!Sent on 09/03/2019

We got married on 8/31/19 and the Holiday Inn Downtown. We were so fortunate to have Paul photograph our engagement session and wedding. Paul went above and beyond during our engagement session – it was a blizzard mid-January and he got so many amazing shots of myself, Connor and our dog Stella. After that, we knew he was going to be perfect for our wedding and he completely exceeded our expectations. Paul came first thing in the morning to capture moments of me and the girls getting ready, and his assistant Margo spent time with Connor while the guys got ready. The two of them spent the entire day with us, capturing so many great moments until the end of the night. That night Paul sent us a few edited teaser photos before we got back to our room. In less than two weeks, Paul sent us almost 900 edited photos of the wedding. We could not believe he got the photos back to us so quickly. We loved every one of them. Since our wedding, we have received so many compliments on our pictures and of Paul on how engaged he was throughout the entire evening. Paul is by far the best photographer and we would use him again in a heartbeat. We would recommend Paul to anyone!Sent on 09/22/2019

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.
