    Paul was an amazing photographer for our wedding. He is so easy going and a very calming presence in the sometimes hectic wedding planning. Paul helped us in the overall planning of the timeline of the day and got some really wonderful shots. The drone photography and video was a huge hit, and we have received so many compliments from our guests on Paul's work. I was very impressed with the short amount of time between our wedding and receiving our photos! Paul is really gifted and a high quality photographer. We are so lucky to have had him. Thank you, Paul!

    My wife Lindsay and I were married on Mackinac Island 5/27/18 and used Paul as our photographer with amazing, magazine quality results. Being from out of state and knowing nobody, we had to rely on recommendations of photographers in the area and he was highly recommended. Paul is an exceptional photographer and an all around great guy. We were only able to speak on the phone with him before the wedding day and he did an excellent job on the call of helping us plan the day and spots he and us needed to be at different times so we could maximize location opportunities. Upon meeting him on the wedding day, he was very laid back and easy to work with. He wasn't pushy at all and let us all do our thing with minimal direction, but enough to make our pictures natural while still coordinated. He knew the island and all of the best locations as well as how long it takes to get to and from each. We were able to get around in a timely manner to as many suggested spots as possible and we couldn't be happier about all the different views and places he chose. During the reception, it was as if he wasn't even there. He stayed out of the way as to not interfere with anyone or distract us or our guests from enjoying their time, but was all over the place getting great pictures of everyone. We would highly recommend Paul Retherford to anyone and would love to use him again in the future. Worth. Every. Penny.

    Paul was amazing! From the initial inquiry to follow up after our wedding, Paul was incredibly professional, prompt and helpful. He was everything you could ask for in a wedding photographer. He took what we wanted into account and offered helpful suggestions to help us get through our day seamlessly. Paul also stepped in to help outside the realm of photography as we had her earl wedding questions throughout the day. As the day unfolded Paul was everywhere capturing everything without being a distraction or noticeable. He got our images to us quickly and easily and they are of wonderful quality. Would absolutely recommend Paul!

    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.
