Paul has been an absolute pleasure to work with! From my first meeting with him, I knew I wanted him to photograph my big day. He offered so many services and even his studio for hair and makeup since my venue was so close. He really made sure I, and the rest of my crew, were accommodated in every way possible. I ended up calling off my wedding, just to elope a few months later... and there was Paul at the last minute to make sure he captured our marriage. He then captured the most beautiful pictures at a small reception we decided to have a year later. His consistency, professionalism, and just good natured personality really added to both our days. I would highly recommend Paul to any future bride or just a photoshoot. His attention to detail is outstanding. You will not be disappointed!

Paul was so easy to work with. He not only took into account the pictures we wanted captured but the general feel and atmosphere of our wedding, and in turn captured so may amazing images that I never thought of! The pictures are phenomenal and more than I could have dreamed of. His gentle and unobtrusive style made him an absolute dream to work with ... especially on such a chaotic and emotionally charged day. Definitely a dream to work with.

Paul was amazing. He took so many gorgeous pictures and he stayed the whole wedding until the very end which I appreciated! I had shown Paul pictures that I wanted before the wedding and he made sure that we took everyone even though I would have forgotten. After the wedding Paul was always responsive and answered any questions me or my mom had for him. Paul was always friendly and great to work with! I highly recommend him!!

Paul Dempsey Photography and our florist were our best/favorite vendors out of our whole wedding. His photography is breathtaking and he is so easy/comfortable to work with. Our engagement photos and wedding photos are beautiful and our wedding album is stunning. I couldn't be happier with the quality and detail he provides with his photos. My good friend will be having him as her photographer in her upcoming wedding after viewing our engagement and wedding photos. He took the perfect pictures for our wonderful day!

After researching and meeting with a few south jersey photographers, I knew that Paul Dempsey was the right choice for our wedding. The sample photos on his website, along with other photographs I was able to view in his studio were one of the main reasons we chose him - he has great style when it comes to taking pictures. His wedding photography packages were also budget friendly for us considering all that is included. We got a chance to work with Paul by taking advantage of an engagement session and were able to use those photos for our "save the dates".
Paul was always very responsive to emails. He was receptive to our wants and needs throughout the wedding planning process. The day of our wedding he showed up right on time (maybe even a little early) and was very professional. He worked well with our large group, which included several kids. He caught some very beautiful and special moments during our ceremony and reception... Looking back it was as if he wasn't there - he knew right where to be to catch all the planned and unplanned moments.
We were more than pleased with all our photos, as were our families. We are in the process of working with Paul on our wedding album. We chose all the photos and he has come up with an awesome layout. We can't wait to receive the hard copy.
Overall - we couldnt recommend Paul more. He was a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to working with him in the future when an opportunity presents itself!

Paul is a great photographer, and captures every single moment on your big day. Paul was extremely flexible, and very professional throughout the entire event. He had a great vision, and was able to capture the best shots, but also gave us the option of taking our own custom shots. I would highly recommend Paul for any events where you need a great photographer.
Jennifer · Married on 06/08/2014
We are from Connecticut and contacted Paul for an engagement shoot in Atlantic City, where we got engaged. Paul was very flexible and was able to do the shoot when we were going to be in the area. He had great ideas and was very comforting to a couple that was a little nervous! We received our photos today and they were better than we had hoped. If he can make curly hair look good in 95% humidity and get great shots in dense fog, imagine what he can do in good conditions! A true professional...we definitely recommend!

Defiantly would hire him again
Edrena · Married on 09/21/2013
I can’t say enough great things about Paul Dempsey and his work! While deciding to elope was an easy decision to make, the decision on how to document the day was a bit harder. As a semi-professional photographer, I tend to look at images a little differently than most people. When I realized the photographer we chose and the moments they would capture would have a greater meaning, I started to overanalyze myself, because no one else would be there to share the day. I couldn’t have picked better than Paul. He was professional, flexible and understanding throughout the entire process from contract to album. During the ceremony he was unobtrusive, so we were able to elope but still have the moments captured, which is exactly what we wanted. I knew it was the right decision when I caught Paul and my introverted husband chatting in his studio. Stop searching for your photographer and hire Paul for your event, big or small, if he’s not already booked.

Paul did an amazing job at our wedding. The photos and albums are beautiful!! I will absolutely use him again and would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

Paul was great! His calm, professional attitude put us at ease on our rather stressful wedding day. We had met with Paul last year and were impressed not only with the quality of his photography but his knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of a wedding day. All our emails and questions were always answered promptly. I think the best word to describe Paul is "Professional" - his knowledge, his skill, his attire and his ability to interact with our family and quests - all very professional. We highly recommend Paul for your wedding.

I interviewed a lot of photographers before choosing Paul. His packages offered the most services for the price and his work was by far the best. He spent more time with me and my wedding party on the day of than we originally discussed and didn't charge me extra. After the wedding I had my pictures back in the time frame promised to me and we loved them. All around great experience!
Sandra · Married on 03/14/2013
Paul was extremely professional and comforting. He wasn't invassive at all. I actually had a guest tell me she was surprised I have wedding pictures because she didn't remember seeing a photographer. My pictures came out amazing! And I got them so quickly!

Paul Dempsey is quite possibly one of THE most professional photographers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. More than that, he is also one of the most talented artists available in NJ. From planning to the wedding day, it was an exceptional pleasure to work with Paul, reviewing details and ideas with the full confidence that he would deliver amazing results. And he has. During the wedding day, we were grateful at how integrated he was in the events, in control when necessary, and at every juncture, ready to capture that special moment. We are pleased, delighted, and over-the-moon with his service.
Rachel · Married on 10/06/2012
Paul was wonderful to work with. He was responsive and really listened to what we wanted. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful -- Paul captured the day perfectly! We highly recommend his work, and you couldn't ask for a more patient, unobtrusive, and professional photographer to work with on your wedding day.
Danielle · Married on 05/19/2012
Paul was great. I gave him an extensive list of specific posed photographs I wanted and I got every one of them. He was always responsive to our requests and emails. He worked very hard and was never pushy like i`ve seen other photographers be when I was in my friends weddings. He was great to work with and I would recommend him to anyone.
Stephanie · Married on 02/18/2012
Paul Dempsey is a fantastic photographer. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the photos from our wedding. Paul is incredibly professional, easy to work with, prompt, and has a great creative eye! We had so much fun doing the photos and just love the results. We love our photos so much that we are having Paul do the first photos of our newborn due in January! He is a must hire, you will not regret your decision.
Tara · Married on 01/21/2012
Paul is very nice and he has wonderful customer service. From the first time we met with him, we knew he was the photographer for us. He put together a wonderful custom package which included a beach shoot for the day after our wedding in instead of engagement pictures. He also came down on his price a little since we explained how tight our budget was. The day of the wedding he arrived on time and had already started taking detail pictures before I arrived back from the hair salon. He got all the shots I wanted during the course of the day (even thought I had to be a bit demanding, at times). Also I must say his second shooter (Lynda Berry) was AMAZING! She had some wonderful ideas.
Our photos arrived 2 weeks and six days after our wedding. I was very happy with how fast they arrived. Paul's photos were great and Lynda's photos were really unique and had more of the photojournalistic style we were looking for. Paul put together a video slideshow, which I love. (You can see it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xkxa9bisd4&feature=colike). I was very happy overall with Paul Dempsey and also very glad he chose Lynda Berry as his second shooter!
Lorraine · Married on 01/14/2012
Paul is amazing! Very professional and easy to work and get along with. My husband and I couldn't be any happier with the turn out of our pictures from our wedding day and our albums he put together. We highly recommend his services, if you want fabulous photos of your special day he is definitely your go to guy :)
Katie · Married on 01/07/2012
Paul was so easy to work with! He has a great personality, which was very important for me when picking my photographer. He really knows what he is doing! I have not received my pictures yet, but I have no doubt that they are going to be wonderful!!! I have seen a few preview pictures and I love them. He is an artist and willing to do what you want. His prices are great and he has so many options for brides that you will be able to find the right package for you! Work with Paul, you will not regret it!!!
Angela · Married on 10/08/2011
Paul was a fantastic and easy going photographer to work with. I had researched many local photographers and was prepared to meet with many of them to discuss style and pricing. Paul was the first photographer that my husband and I met with and he was also the last. We booked him on our first meeting. We immediately knew he would provide us with quality photographs and beautiful choices of albums. We just recently chose our photographs for our wedding album and we we more than thrilled with our 1300 photographs to decide from.
Lori · Married on 09/10/2011
One word amazing! He took some of the most beautiful pictures and was so easy going. Most of my friends who were recently married complained about their photographer being an asshole, but Paul was soo amazing!
Kathy · Married on 09/03/2011
Paul took his time explaining his services to us and making us comfortable with his style and portfolio. We fell in love with his photos online and found him just as great in person. His laid-back, professional style was very relaxing, and it took the chaotic feeling out of our photography sessions, both before and during the wedding. Paul's posed shots are beautiful and clean, but his artistic style really comes to life in his candids. We were absolutely floored by the photos of our reception and the way he captured our friends and family enjoying themselves. He put extra time in, both for our engagement shots and our reception, to catch the shots he needed. He was punctual, responsive, and also stuck to his schedule perfectly in returning the photos to us. Unlike a lot of photographers, the wait was specific and reasonable (6 weeks for wedding photos, beautiful!) As someone who is critical of myself in photos, I was really glad (and impressed) to see that he caught so many dynamic and beautiful shots of me and everyone else. He is not "cheap," (no photographer is) but if you take your time comparing as we did, you will not find another photographer of his skill and professionalism even close to his price range. We wanted photography to be a subtle part of our day instead of a stressful circus, and he did that perfectly. He was never in the way, and you almost didn't notice him. We were very lucky to find him, and we're thrilled with his work.
Jayme · Married on 09/02/2011
Paul is exceptionally talented and a true professional. We fell in love with his website and knew as soon as we met him that we wanted to work with him for our wedding. He is caring, courteous, punctual and creative: all the things you want in a wedding photographer. He has a unique eye for great pictures and the style and quality of the images in amazing! He is great to work with whether you have been in front of the camera before or you are camera shy :) He made us feel comfortable and we had a lot of fun shooting with him. We did an engagement shoot, wedding day photos and "trash the dress" session because we couldn't get enough of his superb photography. We would 100% recommend him to our family and friends and anyone else looking for a fabulous photographer. We look forward to shooting family photos with him for years to come. Best wishes to all and Go with Paul!!!! :)
