Hope and Christopher

This last Summer was one of the busiest I have had in a long time.  Between jobs and travel, my blog updates have suffered, but it has been one incredible year so far.  I shot this wedding at the beginning of the summer season and then immediately headed out to Italy for the next wedding.  I decided to take Lisa along with me for the Italy shoot, and we spent a day in Paris and three in Venice before heading to Verona for the Mata Wedding.  Upon returning from Italy we shot the Leavell Wedding the following weekend.

I was ready for some vacation time by then so we headed out to visit our friends in Georgia.  When we left there, the guys separated from the wives and headed out to the beautiful state of Utah for a week of fly fishing on the Green River below the Flaming Gorge.  We had a great time fishing and laughing and eating the wonderfully prepared food at the resort.

I came home physically tired but mentally rested and ready to process the 3000+ images I had taken on the job, not to mention the personal ones from Europe and Utah.  Needless to say my computer got a workout over the next two months and I am surprised I did not develop a case of carpal tunnel syndrome while at it.

While I post some of the images form this busy season, please feel free to comment.


  1. Great job! I may get re-married (to my current sweetheart) just so I can have you take our wedding pictures! Can't wait to see more of your work!

  2. Wow...so gorgeous! The little ppl aren't in any of the photos! I never realized Christian resembles Chris so much till the wedding..lol

  3. These came out great Paul..! That one of Hope standing alone at Perrin park is absorbing.. simple yet artsy..
    I saw Joe n Liz's prints just the other day - are you going to be posting their shoot?

    A while back I ran into some pretty memorable wedding photos online by one Tony Hoffer, I'm sure you've heard of him.. quite the eye he's got.
    He recently put up a cool HD promo video that I thought you might find interestinggg:


    (Kevin Florian BTW)

  4. You have the incredible knack of capturing the freest moments on an individuals face! Love every one of them, but especially the ones that are caught on the fly....the best smiles are the free ones!

  5. Thanks Steph,
    I just try to be as prepared as I can so that when the happy couple show their joy I am ready to capture it. It's not something that can be easily turned on by saying smile :)
