“We had such a lovely time working with Paulina and her lovely assistant, Jeff. I so enjoyed splitting up the photo day into two days, that worked so much better for weather, timing, and keeping a certain toddler involved. I found Paulina to be very professional but relaxed in her approach, she took every opportunity with the lighting, timing, and mood to get the best picture possible. There were some posed photos, but we loved the spontaneous, involved, voyeuristic shots. I never felt I had to “hold a pose” during the wedding, as she blended into the crowd so wonderfully to fully capture the moment. I loved the way she got photos of guests, musicians, and events that were happening at the wedding and the focus wasn’t entirely on the bride and groom. Paulina’s generosity and time was so appreciated to document a momentous occasion for our friends and family.”
Two beautiful, brilliant friends were married in Boston, MA last summer. While many friends and family members captured happy moments over the course of their wedding day, they didn’t have the opportunity to have any professional portraits of the two of them.
Anne and Victor brought me to the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University and there, with the luxury of time and a beautiful sunset, we were able to create images they will delight in for a lifetime.
“We asked Paulina to be our wedding photographer after meeting her through a friend and admiring her work online. She is a wonderful photographer to work with – professional, passionate, friendly and skilled. During our wedding, she captured all the important moments with artistry and authenticity. She communicated exceptionally well, went out of her way to accommodate our ideas (for example, getting up before sunrise to do a waterfront engagement shoot) and impressed us with her polished final product.”
“My husband Kevin and I hired Paulina to photograph our June 14, 2014 wedding, and this was by far the best decision we made regarding our wedding. We were unsure whether we wanted to spend the money to hire a professional photographer because our wedding was small and casual, but looking back on all the photos and moments that Paulina captured… having her there was the best investment we made.
Not only were we blown away by the quality of Paulina’s work (there was not a bad photo in the hundreds we received!) she was also so personable and friendly and fit right into our small wedding as if she were part of the family. I don’t think people realize how much time you spend with your wedding photographer… it’s important to like them! We thoroughly enjoyed Paulina’s company and she made us feel completely at ease which resulted in the most natural, candid photos possible.
Paulina managed to get us past the “fake smiles” and had very creative and unique suggestions for taking photos. She was so thorough and prepared; she even took the time to find out “our love story” in advance so she could personalize the shoot and weave in meaningful pieces of our lives. She was incredible. She captured every magical moment and her attention to detail was evident. The photos from our special day tell a story; they are full of emotion and every time I look at them I feel like I’m reliving each moment again. I cannot imagine any better person to have documented our wedding day than Paulina.”
“Paulina photographed our weekend-long outside wedding on Vancouver Island, and did a beyond-stunning job! We absolutely love the photographs she took – she has the elusive ‘photographer’s eye’ for unique, detail-oriented shots that truly captured all of the attention and effort we put into personalizing our wedding. She seemed to catch every important moment and milestone of the weekend, though she never felt intrusive or over-bearing to us; she just went with the easy flow we aimed for all weekend long. Her photographs show her obvious talent – they are creative, from fun angles, tell a story, and are beautifully edited to really highlight the natural world we enjoyed that weekend. We would happily recommend her to any one looking for a wedding photographer, and know that one who does will be delighted with her work!”
