The Paul V Photography Difference

Making memorable photographs and capturing the beautiful moments of your Wedding Day are just a part of Wedding Photography.  When you choose me as the Artist to tell your story, you can rely on professional level policies and strategies well beyond the "show up and shoot" photographers.

Professional Level and Backup Equipment


Gear certainly isn't everything. I have made some beautiful photographs with entry level equipment. Over time, I have invested in professional level bodies, lenses, flashes and other equipment. The advantage is clear in many shooting conditions such as low light in a dark ceremony or reception.  Weather sealing allows  me to continue to photograph in foul weather. Technical expertise along with "fast lenses" and "full frame bodies give your wedding pictures that beautiful, exceptional bokah or depth of field. 

Nikon Professional Services

NPS Titanium

Titanium level Nikon Professional Services membership means if my gear is stolen, lost or broken. NPS will overnight me replacement bodies, lenses or flashes.

Professional Level Digital Management

WD 4TB Hard Drive

You can rely on professional digital management strategies. My camera bodies save to a primary and a backup memory card. On Wedding Day, I continually also back your images up to my laptop and a portable external hard drive. When I get to my studio the night of your wedding I back your entire wedding up to two more external hard drives. One stays at my studio and the other goes home with me and is backed up to my editing desktop computer.  Your Wedding images are on 7 separate storage mediums located in two different places. 


Nationwide Ins

Beyond Nikon Professional Services membership and backup gear, I also invest in a full suite of business insurances. Instead of basic "market value" equipment insurance, I carry "full replacement value" insurance. I also carry full liability insurance. A certificate is available to venues that request this.


I book over 90% of clients that meet me in person in my studio. One of the most overlooked aspects of hiring a  Wedding photographer is personality. You two and your friends and family will spend all day with the photographer you choose. Not to mention a significant time from planning and the engagement session to the delivery of your Wedding Album. 

I learned an important skill very early on as I photographed for others to learn the craft. The camera looks both ways! The energy and demeanor of your chosen photographer will show in your photographs. Don't hire Eeyore !

A sample of planning documents

I believe what separates me most from the pack is using the experience of 175 weddings in the last 6 years to ensure that one of the most treasured days of your life is as magical as you dream it will be.  The moment you hire me we begin by helping me learn about your vision of your wedding day. I will help where you would like with timeline reviews, vendor tips, rehearsal attendance and even taking the time to memorize your bridal party and families names. I will work side by side with your venue attendant and DJ so you can just forget about the little details and spend your Wedding Day enjoying your friends and family.
