    Paul did an awesome job with my pictures!!! I think I received excellent picture quality and service, he is worth every penny and more! A couple in our wedding party had gotten married two months before us and they told me during the reception that they wished they had hired Paul because he far exceeded their photographer, and they spent the same amount of money. He was the one person I hired, from church to band to flowers to reception and more, that had exceeded my expectation. He was the one thing for sure that went right at my wedding. I just can't stop looking at my wedding photos. Thanks Paul! :)

    INCREDIBLE talent and professionalism

    I have never felt more beautiful than when seeing the photos Paul took of my wedding. We had a gorgeous Lake Michigan backdrop and Paul knew EXACTLY the photos to take and the lighting to use, etc.

    He was so kind and warm that taking photos was a breeze. He truly captured the emotion of the day. We are so so thankful that we hired Paul.

    Paul Retherford Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Alexandra! What a perfect day for two incredible people. Thank you for your trust in my service and ultimately your kind review. I wish for a lifetime of fun. Cheers!

Paul Retherford is an amazing photographer, and great to work with. There are times when a photographer will just leave with the happy couple, while there are still things to do at the reception. Paul ensures that it is ok to leave for a bit, and not stall the flow of the reception.
