GABRIELA & JURI | LOS ANGELES, CA | APRIL 2017
“I cannot say enough good things about Paulina. Hiring her as my wedding photographer was one of the best wedding decisions I made. I am very self conscious about being photographed but she made me so at ease throughout the whole process. At first, I wasn’t into the idea of doing an engagement photo shoot, but Paulina convinced us saying it would allow us to get comfortable being photographed by her before the wedding. We ended up spending an afternoon in Venice beach which turned out to be so much fun! Just before the wedding day, Paulina sent us the engagement shoot photos, and after seeing how beautiful and natural they looked I realized that our wedding photos were in great hands.
All of our photos look incredible and truly capture the atmosphere of our wedding day. I also love that Paulina listened to my concerns and found a perfect balance between posed pictures (which I don’t love but you inevitably have to do) and candid ones. Paulina’s beautiful work speaks for itself, but I also want to add that she is a wonderful person and just really fun to be around. Thank you so much Paulina, I love your work!”

“My husband and I feel very lucky to have found Paulina to document the final days of our twin pregnancy and the beginning of our adventure with our new babies. Paulina has a remarkable eye for capturing the joy and beauty of maternity, resulting in gorgeous photos that captured the hope and promise we felt in the days leading up to our twin’s birth. In their newborn photos, she was able to showcase our baby’s first interactions as brother and sister and their unique personalities at a very young age. Breastfeeding has been a beautiful part of our journey as a growing family, and as a nurse and doula, Paulina made me feel comfortable and at ease as she captured stunning photos of me nursing our newborn twins. Paulina has a true talent for capturing life’s special moments and we will always treasure the precious images that she took for our family.”
Kate & Callum | Squamish, BC | July 2016
“We came across Paulina through a friend and instantly fell in love with her work. She was the perfect choice of photographer for our Squamish woodland wedding. Being a little camera shy, I was nervous about the idea of working with a photographer. In the end I was grateful to have had Paulina’s calm and reassuring presence with me throughout the day. Callum was hesitant about the expense of hiring a professional photographer – we both agree that it was truly invaluable. We continually re-live the magic with all of our family and friends through Paulina’s talented lens.
We can’t thank Paulina (and her fantastic assistant Jeff) enough. They worked tirelessly and passionately to capture the emotion and excitement of the big day in a unique and stunning way. Far exceeding our expectations. The visual story that Paulina tells includes artistic attention to detail and many candid moments. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and appreciate that she provided us with a fun, authentic and intimate portrayal of our wedding. We would highly recommend Paulina to anyone looking for a photographer!!!”

“We asked Paulina to photograph our wedding after a beautiful outdoor family photo session the previous year. We were so impressed with her eye for capturing such beauty in simple candid shots, and natural ability to work with our children, we absolutely had to have her photograph our wedding.
We were a little worried about how things would go, as our little ones were 1 and 3 years old at the time and not big on standing still! Paulina did not disappoint! She managed to capture the most precious moments in a truly authentic way, allowing the unique personalities of our children to come alive in the photographs.
Paulina has such skill and professionalism, and she played a huge role in helping to create a truly enjoyable and relaxed experience for everyone involved. We chose to have a casual, intimate, family only ceremony and Paulina fit in seamlessly.
We are so thrilled with the quality and natural beauty captured in our wedding photographs and would highly recommend Paulina to anyone!”
Ayren & Earl | Vancouver, BC | May 2015
“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.”
Emma & Matt | Toronto, ON | August 2014
“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.”

“I have been to the local department stores for portraits, what I really ended up with was two fidgety children, tears, and endless fighting. These experiences practically left me in tears and saying I will never do this again. When I was approached to have to have a professional photo shoot done with my two children I immediately cringed. I met up with Paulina at a local farm and the kids immediately loved her. They warmed up to her and she let them be themselves. There was no set up, sit here or there, or do this. They were able to be kids and she was able to capture that. I was left speechless, and with no tears!
The pictures were amazing and she captured the essence of my children being children. Paulina is a genuine person who has the ability to see people for who they are and be able to capture it on film. I was extremely impressed and can’t wait for the next shoot.”
SYDNEY & KEVIN | VICTORIA, BC | JUNE 2014
“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.”
GRETCHEN | PROVIDENCE, RI | OCTOBER 2012
“When our son arrived 8 weeks earlier than expected my husband and I were thrown quite the curve ball. It was like we had blinders on, and our only focus was getting him healthy enough to leave the NICU. Needless to say, we did not have the typical glorious, exciting newborn experience. Cue Paulina! As our hospital stay wound down Paulina came to photograph our son Rob and we finally started to feel like this was a time to celebrate. She not only shot beautiful picture after beautiful picture…she was always thoughtful, kind, and had our family’s well being in the forefront. Throughout the process I always felt comfortable with her. While we weren’t expecting this entry into the world for our son, I am glad that we have Paulina’s beautiful photographs to remember this important time. I wholeheartedly recommend bringing Paulina into life’s important moments to capture the memories for your family as well.”

“Paulina did absolutely gorgeous photos for our family. She captured many of the cute expressions our little girl makes. The photos were emailed to us within days and she did a beautiful job editing them. Paulina is talented, professional and a delight to work with. I would highly recommend her!”
Shandell & Luke | Squamish, BC | JUNE 2013
“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!”
ASHLEY | Smithers, BC | AUGUST 2014
“Paulina’s warmth and creativity made for a fun and engaging photo session. She has a natural eye for capturing the joys of maternity, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results.”
