As soon as we met with Paul we knew he was the photographer we wanted for our wedding at Franklin Plaza; we never met with anyone else. Paul was excellent and had so many great ideas. He was very patient, especially with our 2-year-old daughter, and was never rude by interrupting us during the wedding reception. We never felt rushed either which was important to us. It was a fabulous day and Paul made it extra special. We would definitely hire him again as wonderful to work with. Lynnette & Dami Wedding 5/21/2017

Paul was amazing to work with at Jimbo’s Club! He was very professional, and personal as well which made everything much easier. Our pictures were done quickly so we didn’t miss our wedding. Paul was non-stop throughout our reception taking photos of everyone. You never knew when he was going to be there for the perfect candid shot which is what we wanted. I honestly cannot say enough about him; amazing experience from start to finish. Johanna & Jason Wedding 5/20/2017

Paul was absolutely amazing!! He learned EVERYONE'S name in our bridal party which truly personalized our wedding. He never made me or anyone else pose uncomfortably; he adhered to every request we made; he offered valuable tips for the best shots; he flexibly adjusted his tasks to fit slight changes we asked for; and he used the lay-out and resources at our venue (we got married at a winery) to get incredibly creative with our photographs. The best part was that Paul had a wonderful sense of humor that had everyone laughing, making our already overjoyed smiles all the more genuine. He captured every special moment of the evening and was on his feet and alert the whole way through. He didn’t miss anything. Not that I would have minded, but we really barely noticed him throughout the night, as he did his best to ensure that every shot was completely natural and candid. Our guests LOVED Paul and his energy and we are overjoyed that we found him!! You will not regret hiring this photographer for your wedding. He keeps you in the loop with every step, he produces AMAZING pictures, and he truly makes your event stress-free. Mackaully & Juan Wedding 5/16/2017

I spent a great deal of time considering our options for wedding photographers, and trying to narrow down my choices. We were already interested in Paul Saunders Photography based on our internet searches, and when we finally attended the Longfellows wedding show and met Paul in person, we knew he was exactly who we wanted to take our wedding photos. We received the link to our engagement photos a few days after the shoot, and I am still smiling whenever I think about them! Neither of us consider ourselves very photogenic. In fact, in the past 12 years we have taken maybe 2 or 3 pictures together that we truly like. However, in less than 90 minutes Paul was able to capture hundreds of photos of us that we absolutely love! We have had several friends and family members tell us that our engagement shoot was the best one they have seen, and we are sure that this is because of the number of beautiful locations and different poses that Paul captured us in. He is a very knowledgeable and efficient photographer; we didn't have to do anything but show up ready to go. We told him he wanted photos taken in Lake George and he knew exactly where to bring us for a wide range of beautiful and unique backgrounds. The day of our shoot, it was in the high 40's and light rain, but we wanted to proceed with the shoot and Paul was great about it. We both had so much fun during the shoot that we didn't even think about the cold or worry about the rain once, and we actually feel that the overcast skies made the pictures even more beautiful. The only part of this whole process that has not been easy is trying to choose which photos we want to print! I can't emphasize enough how happy we are with our decision to choose Paul Saunders Photography for our engagement shoot, and how excited we are to have him for our wedding day! We highly recommend Paul to anyone in search of a wonderful photographer. Kelly & Zach Wedding 9/22/2018

Paul was absolutely fantastic to work with on our wedding day. We spent a lot of time finding the "right" photographer for our wedding in Geneva. As soon as we met with Paul we knew he was the perfect choice. There was another wedding at our venue during the time of our reception, and Paul was so helpful in guiding the wedding party, guests; and myself and husband throughout the transition from the ceremony into the reception while our wedding planner was helping with the other wedding. Paul also took our engagement photos, and could not be happier with how they all turned out. We would highly recommend Paul Saunders Photography for any occasion, and have been so grateful to be able to have worked with him. Chelsey & Parker Wedding 4/29/2017

We used Paul Saunders for our engagement photos and immediately booked him for our wedding (at Belhurst Castle) as well! We had such a great time during the engagement photo shoot in Lake George...it felt like one of our friends were taking the photos and so comfortable. Paul is very easy to work with and ensures that your pictures reflect who you are. We brought our motorcycle and 2 dogs and he worked them into the pictures seamlessly. The pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and we got many more than we expected! In addition, Paul always responds to emails the same day and is very energetic. If we could give him 10 stars, we would. Thank you again! Diana & Rob Wedding 5/19/2018 (Click here to see our pictures)

Paul was AMAZING to work with. We just booked him for our engagement photo shoot in Saratoga and you get a $100 discount for your engagement photo shoot if you book him for your wedding!! He took so many awesome shots of my fiancé and me at Congress Park. The ideas he had weren't your stereotypical cheesy poses and we CANNOT THANK PAUL ENOUGH for everything!! The pictures came back to us in less than a week. We are in LOVE with these photos and can't wait for our wedding pictures now!! Catherine & Keenan Wedding 3/16/2018 (Click here to see our pictures)

From the moment I contacted Paul to enquire about his availability for my wedding at Glenora Wine Cellars, he was quick to respond to my emails and was understanding about my planning the wedding from the UK. Paul was so friendly and wonderful to work with on the wedding day. He was great with my niece and nephew as well as my elderly grandmother when taking photos. He was adaptable with everything and made everyone feel very included and relaxed. Paul was funny and had everyone laughing. All the e-photos he sent were absolutely wonderful. Plus, received them within a few weeks after the wedding and couldn't be happier with the outcome. So pleased. We would love to recommend Paul to anyone interested in a wonderfully talented photographer who is exceptionally good. Thank you Paul! Kate & Paul Wedding 4/14/2017

We are very happy that we chose Paul as our wedding photographer at The Mansion Inn (in Rock City Falls). We were both truly impressed with his talent, sincerity and passion for his work. He was extremely punctual, enthusiastic and did a fantastic job gathering many family for all the group shots we wanted along with capturing candid moments simultaneously. Wonderful style. His personality is ideally suited to his job as Paul makes everyone happy and just lots of laughter. Five-star all the way. Jingyu & Piyush Wedding 4/9/2017

Paul was absolutely a joy to work with. My wife and I went with the weddings-by-the-hour package that Paul offers, and hired him for eight hours for our wedding at Fairways of Halfmoon. He captured all of our wedding day from start to finish and didn’t miss anything. From my wife getting ready, to the end of the wedding. Very impressed how he was able to manage our larger families and wedding party, while making sure my wife had a chance to eat and not miss being together with everyone. At the end of the day, we got nothing but compliments about how awesome everyone thought Paul was. Highly recommend this guy as your photographer if you want to capture your wedding day story. He is so good at what he does. Lauren & Frank Wedding 4/8/2017

We used Paul as our photographer for our wedding 3/31/17 at Shaker Ridge. He was amazing throughout our whole process. From engagement pictures with Sasha our dog to extremely responsive emails to our big day we were overjoyed with everything! On our wedding day, he was so energetic and flexible with my husband and I since things did not go as planned. He never made us feel stressed and made all guests feel very comfortable. I would recommend Paul to any couple looking for a great photographer Becca & Luke Wedding 3/31/2017

Do not hesitate: BOOK PAUL NOW!! Paul was everything we could have hoped for in a wedding photographer. He was warm, welcoming, professional and did a wonderful job of making us feel comfortable - at both our engagement shoot and wedding. Following our wedding at Saratoga National we had friends and family that spoke highly of him and were excited to see the finished product. We have since received all our wedding photos and we are OVER THE MOON!! The number of photos he provided us with is amazing and the quality is excellent too. He managed to capture so many candid moments and captured all of our family and friends beautifully. We will treasure our wedding photos for years to come. Melanie & Kevin Wedding 3/18/2017

Out of all the vendors we used for our wedding at Beardslee Castle, Paul Saunders was by far the best to work with. He was energetic, accommodating and just plain wonderful to work with. Everyone at our wedding truly enjoyed him. He was never in the way and treated all our guests with courtesy. He listened to what we wanted and he went above and beyond and captured more than we could possibly have hoped for. Weddings can be crazy and despite the monsoon and crazy weather, Paul did a wonderful job keeping people organized and together to capture all the pictures we wanted. He was wonderful. Jessica & David Wedding 2/25/2017

I live about 1200 miles from my wedding venue, so I was not terribly involved with the planning process. Paul was incredibly accommodating and professional throughout. He took the time to learn all family names before the wedding! We were extremely impressed. I am the type of person who never feels like my pictures come out well, but I never once felt that way on my wedding day! Paul even had good ideas for silly pictures that we wanted (we both like Star Wars, so we cut our cake with light sabers), but he was careful to make sure things didn't get out of hand. The best part is I hardly noticed him at the reception, but my guests had great things to say about him later! Plus, he had worked with the staff at Mohawk River Country Club and Piano Man DJ before, which helped everything to run seamlessly. Highly recommend. Emily & Guy Wedding 1/15/2017

Paul is a very fun and energetic photographer! The whole wedding party loved him and we did too. He has unique ideas for each picture he takes and made sure we didn’t miss our wedding reception!! We got married at Canfield Casino and even got snow pictures in the park which we really wanted. He's a great photographer all around and so happy we hired Paul when we did almost three years ago!! Ashlee & Dave Wedding 12/31/2016

Paul was amazing! He is incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and professional throughout the entire wedding process. We got married at Hotel Syracuse and he really came prepared and found spots for the best photos, knew everybody's names and kept everything moving to make sure my husband and I could enjoy our wedding day and not miss anything. For working by himself, all of our guests were surprised he was literally everywhere! Paul was an absolute delight to have at our wedding. For someone to help make an already stressful day a lot less stressful, Paul is worth every penny. What my husband most enjoyed was Paul's approach during the reception. There weren't any forced photos; he documented everything and really did a wonderful job blending in and capturing the mood and guests in a natural unobtrusive way. Becki & Mike Wedding 12/30/2016

Paul was a wonderful photographer to work with! He had a great personality that kept everyone laughing the whole time we were taking pictures. I felt like he was always in the right place at the right time to get a good shot, but he was never in the way. We received teaser pictures the day after our wedding (they are beautiful) and would highly recommend Paul as he is the best! Samantha & Kevin Wedding 12/17/2016

We got married at Saratoga National and if you are looking for a photographer who is personable, fun, efficient, and not a distraction, then Paul Saunders is your man! Paul does everything in his power to make sure YOU are not the center of attention and ensure that YOU are able to enjoy all your wedding day. Paul is extremely professional; he was never overbearing or demanding. He was fantastic with the kids and just had a knack for capturing those special moments. He was adamant that we didn't spend excessive time staging and posing photos (which was very important to us) and he made sure we got to enjoy our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He worked very quickly and efficiently, almost stealth-like, to get the pictures with family and friends that we wanted and never got in the way throughout our day. He always found a way to "get that shot" and we are extremely glad that we made Paul our photographer on our special day. He was wonderful, plus we love our teaser pictures!! Christine & Kern Wedding 12/11/2016

Paul is a fabulous photographer, a consummate professional and it was such a pleasure to have him take care of our wedding photos. We live in London and selected Paul based on his online reviews and following on from an introductory phone call. Paul never missed a beat throughout the whole process, he was extremely helpful and informative at all times. We had an intimate wedding at The Waldorf Astoria, NYC and on the big day he was engaged not just with us, but also with all our guests whom he took the time to speak with throughout our day. He made everyone very comfortable throughout. Plus, we received our edited pictures very quickly. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Paul. Morag & Andy Wedding 12/3/2016

Paul has such an amazing talent for capturing ‘moments’ which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was – it’s the natural fun and excitement that is so important to help you re-live the night after it is over. Paul’s energy and passion come across in the photos because he was literally making us laugh the entire time. He is able to blend in so well that your guests will not realize they’re being photographed which is exactly what we wanted. We got married at Franklin Plaza and could not recommend a better photographer who goes above and beyond to get amazing pictures. His stunning shots will take us back to the day each time we look at them. He captured all the emotions, laughter and love perfectly. We can't thank Paul enough for taking the time to get to know our bridal party and family histories prior to our wedding. He is so thoughtful, kind and made our wedding extra enjoyable. Thank you, Paul for being amazing :) Cait & Drew Wedding 11/26/2016

Paul is absolutely amazing! He is so quick and his ability to work a huge crowd of people to do what he wants is a sight to see. He is so passionate, personable, charming and charismatic! Love the accent and how much fun everything was! Highly recommended! You won't even know he is taking pictures at the reception which was important for us. We had our wedding at Birch Hill (it was sunny and 65 :) and he will walk into trees and bushes and lay on the ground to get perfect pictures!! Beyond impressed and delighted. Thank you, Paul, for everything!! Lauren & Ryan Wedding 11/19/2016

I highly recommend Paul! He is amazing and spent the time to get to know my fiancé and I and he really put us at ease! Paul has no hidden fees and he even suggested a cheaper photography package than I was initially expecting to choose. He is also extremely responsive with email (and will answer any email within 12 hours!). We are not comfortable in front of the camera, but Paul made it so easy for us! He has such great positive energy and a great eye for perfect backgrounds and so creative! I can't stop looking at all our beautiful photos and love every one of them! :) Jenny & Nick Wedding 11/10/2016

Paul was an incredible photographer for our wedding at Sleepy Hollow in Vermont! He made the planning process painless and he was always available to answer any questions. He made everything so easy for us from start to finish. On the day of the wedding, Paul managed to perfectly capture and document the story of the day. His lightheartedness was much appreciated by everyone and Paul made taking the post-ceremony shots effortless and we were on to our reception in no time. Paul managed to capture so many great moments throughout the day and we absolutely love all our photos! Sarah & Matt Wedding 11/5/2016

Having Paul as our photographer turned a great day into a perfect day! From the very beginning, before we even booked our date, Paul impressed us with his prompt replies; he will get back to you when he says he will, even if it means he's writing emails at 2am after working a wedding to follow up! You don't get much more professional, top notch dedication than that! Paul is extremely patient, understanding, and knowledgeable of the wedding industry - which any wedding planning crazed couple can appreciate! With many ties in the industry, he is well-known and respected by many, and provided us with other fantastic vendors (again - another great help when you are lost in the black hole of wedding planning and so many choices). When the big day finally got there, he was able to help guide us through the day, kept us on time, and captured the beauty of our intimate Castle wedding. He is very quick and efficient! He will work with you, your family, friends, vendors, etc. to make sure your special day is the way you want it! He really listens and makes it a point to learn who is who, and will call everyone by name - very impressive and appreciated by many!! Danny and I have the utmost respect for Paul, and hope we will have a chance to work with him again in the future! Emily & Danny Wedding 10/16/2016

Paul was the absolute best!!! We had some things that did not go as planned for our wedding, with exception of Paul. He delivered on everything he promised and knocked it out of the park!! We both have very large families and there were so many requests, but Paul made it happen and always had a big smile on his face. He was absolutely awesome with the kids and we are so happy with the way he conducted himself and his business. He was also a tremendous help ensuring we were all ready and went above and beyond what our expectations were. We would highly recommend him for every event you have and can say with 100% certainty that you will be beyond impressed!! Thank you for everything Paul!! Lauren & Josh Wedding 10/15/2017

Paul was brilliant! His orchestration of the entire day was excellent and all of the details of the day were documented and he didn’t miss anything. He is a terrific guy with a lot of energy, and he makes the picture taking process really fun and exciting. He talked to us at different moments so that we could enjoy special moments as bride and groom and not miss anything. And, so many of our guests complimented on how great he was. Thank you Paul for making our day at The Century House so special!! Michele & Mike Wedding 10/14/2016

Paul photographed our wedding in Lake Placid and we were so happy with the day's events! Friends and family had many compliments for him because he made everyone feel very comfortable and helped to keep the day on track. Not an easy task :) Our bridal party was full of big personalities, toddlers, and dogs and he was able to capture all of the moments to help us preserve the memories. We love all our teaser pictures and highly recommend Paul for all of your wedding photography needs! Kerri & Erik Wedding 10/1/2016

We were looking for a photographer that was both talented and would work with our budget. I had read previous reviews about Paul on this site and was impressed by his work, but also that clients stated he gave them space to enjoy their wedding. His website gave us many budget options. Well let me tell you that Paul was an absolute joy to work with. From the beginning, he was very professional, gave us the options we wanted, contacted us prior to the wedding as a reminder (thank goodness with all that has to be planned) and asked what our expectation were of him. He also had many great suggestions. On our wedding day we were so pleased with all the photos he took and we also enjoyed our wedding and guests as we should. Also, just to let you know, Paul has a great sense of humor which puts everyone at ease and got wonderful smiles! Several of my friends have asked about our photographer and I was delighted to forward his contact information along. Denise & Patrick Wedding 9/25/2016

It was a wonderful experience working with Paul! From the initial meet we felt very comfortable with Paul being our photographer for our special day in Vermont. He made sure to highlight and place extra attention on the people, items and moments that meant the most to my groom and myself. His pricing was also very reasonable! Something hard to find these days! We took our engagement photos with Paul as well and he did a phenomenal job; this made us feel extra confident in the choice we made for our photographer. He was amazing on our wedding day and everyone couldn’t believe how nice he was. He's the best! Ashley & Nick Wedding 9/24/2016

We got married at The Century House and Paul is such a great photographer! He got all the pictures we wanted for our wedding from the first-look all the way to the cake cutting. He took pictures of our family and even got my young nieces to smile which isn’t easy. He has a great personality and makes you laugh and feel very relaxed. I would highly recommend Paul as a photographer for your wedding! Colleen & Scott Wedding 9/18/2017

After meeting with countless photographers that were trying to push their fancy (and not to mention expensive) wedding packages on me, I noticed that Paul Saunders' name kept popping up on various popular wedding planning sites. His name was accompanied by what seems like hundreds of five-star reviews and praise for his work- and they were all right. Paul's personality, professionalism, attention to detail, and talent are unmatched. He is extremely personable- knowing everyone's name in my bridal party and on both sides of the immediate family. This is something that you don't think of, but it made our experience so much more personal and pleasant when Paul referred to each person, even grandparents, by name. Paul kept our day flowing smoothly at Hunter Mountain and without worry, which is very important for us brides! He was extremely flexible, quick to respond to any questions I had leading up to the wedding, and more importantly wasn't "in our face" throughout the reception. If there's something I hate it's being at a wedding and have to stop dancing or being told to move out of the way so the photographer could get a good shot, but not Paul. He was wonderful and our pictures are absolutely amazing :) Kristen & Mike Wedding 9/17/2016

Paul was absolutely amazing!!!! From our first meeting with him, my husband and I were completely at ease. He made the process so easy! He is very quick with his communication, which is great as I fired off 30 emails with questions/concerns ;) He completely understood what we were going for in terms of being natural and, honestly, just made everything super easy and simple for us. Our guests loved him at our reception at Longfellows. They kept coming up to us saying how great he was. EVERYONE should hire him as their photographer!!! We cannot say enough good things about our experience. Ellie & Kyle Wedding 9/9/2016

Throughout the wedding planning process, Paul was responsive and very professional. I always appreciated how I never had to wait for answers to any questions. We had our wedding at Jimbo’s (at Point O’Pines) and the day of the wedding Paul arrived when he said that he would, and he was very kind and patient with everyone. My parents loved him! In fact, he was the only vendor that they commented on, whispering "I like him a lot.... good job!". My Mom could not take enough pictures with her old camera and I told her to stop because Paul was there. Paul was so nice though and told her that it was absolutely ok, she could take pictures too. They even had a selfie together! It is obvious that Paul has photographed many weddings as he was knowledgeable about things beyond photography when asked. I would definitely highly recommend Paul Saunders! Katie & Kevin Wedding 9/3/2016

We absolutely loved working with Paul for our wedding at The Mountain Top Inn in Vermont. He was amazing! Not to mention, very professional, friendly and efficient. All our guests were raving about him! Compared to other photographer options we were looking at, Paul offered exception value for our Thursday wedding date and worked with us to give us a military discount! I would definitely recommend Paul! Not only does he take beautiful pictures but he makes sure everyone has a fun time during the process! Amy & Danny Wedding 9/1/2016

Paul was absolutely amazing throughout - from our very first phone call to the event on our wedding day in The Berkshires. Paul was not only an incredible photographer, he actually helped me immensely as I planned for the big day. He advised me about so many different details that I would not have thought about on my own - I found I was So very grateful to him well before any actual photographs were taken. He helped me with details as small as what kinds of material to avoid in a summer suit for my husband and as big as how to position the chairs for the ceremony to allow for the best photo opportunities. When Paul arrived at our venue - my sister's home - he knew everyone's name by heart and was taking shots and helping us with everything from the moment we said hello. I cannot recommend him highly enough - he offers a huge range of photo packages and is extremely professional and knowledgeable - and he is funny and fun and a huge help to wedding planning. Paul was simply amazing to work with from start to finish - I just wish I could relive the day because it truly was the best day of my life! Susannah & Herbie Wedding 8/27/2016

Paul Saunders was an absolute delight to work with and we can't recommend him enough! Paul was very easy to get a hold of whenever we had questions – we were always impressed by how quickly he responded to emails. On our wedding day, Paul arrived on time and kept everyone on schedule, and his upbeat personality and GREAT sense of humor kept everyone smiling throughout the evening. We had several children in our wedding (two flower girls and a ring bearer), and Paul worked so well with them and got them all to listen which they don’t usually do very well! We heard so many positive comments from family and friends about Paul during our wedding – he was so professional and just a very friendly and very likeable guy. (Also, for a top professional photographer, it's tough to beat his pricing!) If you're looking for a wedding photographer that does everything right, choose Paul and you will be delighted! Meridi & James Wedding 8/26/2016

Paul is just wonderful to work with! As mother of the bride - (with the bride out of town) - he made the process very easy before the wedding and answered all questions quickly and was so helpful. The day of the wedding he kept everything moving - we had a plan and knew it was going to be difficult with time, but he kept right to it! Took all the pictures we wanted and then some! I never saw him throughout the ceremony and reception at Glen Sanders Mansion, but the pictures he captured were awesome! Both the bride and groom have so many pictures to choose from with every moment of their special day captured! The picture thank you notes are fabulous with many compliments given by family and friends. The entire process with this photographer is very professional and full of fun! If you are looking for a creative photographer who knows how to work with people in a wonderful friendly way, then Paul is the one for you! Eileen (for Amy & Alex) Wedding 8/20/2016

Booking Paul for our wedding at Pat’s Barn was one of the best choices my husband and I could have made! He is easy going, full of ideas and responsive to any need and suggestion you may have! During the planning process he quickly responded to any questions or concerns, provided recommendations for other vendors, and gave advice about every area of our wedding we could think of. On our wedding day he took charge and made sure everyone was where they needed to be, helped the men with the boutonnieres, and made all of our wedding guests laugh while they were waiting for the ceremony to start! He had our group shots done quickly to ensure that we could participate in our cocktail hour, and he made sure that we were given drinks, cooled down when needed and in the right place at the right time! He has a variety of pricing options to meet every need as well! Our guests could not stop talking about him and how fantastic he was! We also booked our engagement photos with Paul prior to the wedding and those were absolutely amazing! The perfect mix of natural, silly and serious, without being too cheesy. If you are looking for a kind, hilarious, responsive person to take beautiful photos for your wedding, you will not regret choosing Paul Saunders! Brittany & Nick Wedding 8/14/2016

I could not have been more thrilled to have Paul taking our wedding pictures. I was planning my wedding from out of town and did not know many vendors in the Adirondacks. I used Wedding Wire to find Paul, and his reviews convinced me to contact him. He is incredibly prompt in response to his emails, which was really important to me as an out of town bride. And a few weeks leading up to the wedding, we had a nice phone conversation where he asked all about our families and names of everyone involved in the wedding and sure enough, come wedding day, he knew everyone's names!! It was such a special touch. He is incredibly flexible - I wasn't quite ready yet for pictures the morning of the wedding so he went off to find the groom and groomsmen (also on site) until I was ready and never rushed me. He takes a variety of fun, posed pictures as well as many candid photos. He is very in tune with what you are looking for in your photographs and makes sure he captures that. He provided great direction to everyone as well, so pictures moved really quickly and the bridal party was able to have a few minutes to themselves in between pictures and cocktail hour starting. I did the wedding-by-the-hour package and had Paul for 11 hours which gave us a lot of picture son our flash drive. He has a LOT of choices and options and really like that. Truly a great photographer! Paul thank you so much for being a part of and capturing our special day! We are truly delighted with everything. Meghan & Seth Wedding 8/13/2016

Paul was a wonderful asset to our wedding day! His bubbly personality had everyone laughing all the time. He is extremely organized and will make sure pictures are done quickly and efficiently. He listens to the bride's wants and needs and doesn’t miss anything. We had our reception at the Sky Armory (in Syracuse) and were able to enjoy our cocktail hour and reception because all the formal pictures were taken after the ceremony and in between. We also did our engagement shoot with Paul at Turning Stone and that was an amazing experience. It’s awesome because Paul gives you a flash drive and you own all the pictures! I would recommend Paul to everyone:) Ashley & Geoff Wedding 8/7/2016

We had a very non-traditional wedding in Lake Placid. Paul was VERY adaptable to everything we wanted to do. He met us after our hike up Whiteface to take some beautiful and fun pictures on top of the mountain. Then he switched gears and took some awesome pictures of our wedding ceremony, family and friends at our reception on Mirror Lake. Paul also offered very helpful advice to make our special day move along smoothly. All of our guests loved Paul and I would highly recommend him!! We love our pictures!! Pam & Andres Wedding 7/30/2016

We got married at The Hiland Country Club and there are not enough words to describe how wonderful Paul was on our special day. He made our photographs fun and fulfilled every and any picture we wanted taken on our big day. He was professional, respectful, funny and took some of the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. We got our teaser pictures the day after our wedding!! He made our day just that much more special. We had open communication throughout the whole planning process and Paul got to know us and our families. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would. He was simply amazing! You should definitely book Paul if you want the best! Danielle & Niko Wedding 7/18/2016

Look no further!! Paul is not only great at what he does, he is very professional and incredibly friendly! His tips and advice he sends in the weeks leading up to the wedding were a great help! He sees everything and by his experience he prepares you and we were able to enjoy our wedding even more! Not only was Paul a great photographer, he had great coordination and was quite entertaining throughout our wedding! All of our guests raved about how awesome he was! I'm so lucky to have found him AND we love our teaser pictures!! Paul is very outgoing, personable, friendly, and was always making people laugh! Simply put, he was outstanding!! We enjoyed sharing our special day with Paul! Jessica & Jesse Wedding 7/16/2016

Paul did an amazing job and worked really well with my family and friends to get beautiful pictures taken quickly. In all honesty, I don't really enjoy having my picture taken, but Paul made it an enjoyable time for all with some VERY cute poses! Everyone was laughing and having a blast. Planning long distance (from Chesapeake, VA) for our Saratoga wedding wasn’t easy, but I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with! He definitely helped make my wedding day perfect in so many ways and a LOT less stressful too. And we love all our teaser shots we got the day after!! Analea & Blake Wedding 7/11/2016

Paul was such a pleasure to work with. We got married in Burlington at Arts Riot and his confidence and knowledge helped make our wedding day a smooth event from start to finish. He adapted to weather concerns (it rained a lot :) with ease and managed the crowd with aplomb. Thank you so much Paul for helping us memorialize our special day so beautifully! Suzie & Paul Wedding 7/10/2016

Paul was an excellent photographer to work with. Leading up to the big day, Paul kept in contact and provided many helpful hints to ensure our special day went off without a hitch! The weddings-by-the-hour package was perfectly priced and the special price for our engagement shoot, was the cherry on top! For a couple who has never enjoyed their photos being taken, Paul was the perfect choice! Between our crazy wedding schedule and less than cooperative wedding party - Paul kept us all on track, kept the wedding party together before and after the ceremony, and was able to capture great shots along the way. Plus, we even made it to our venue (Hayloft on the Arch) in time for cocktail hour which was a huge bonus for us! I would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for an open-minded, creative, and reasonably priced photographer who provides a genuinely wonderful experience! We love our teaser pictures!! Krystal & Paul Wedding 7/9/2016

Paul did an amazing job at making everybody feel comfortable! Our family and friends loved him! He was very attentive and I never really knew he was there (aside from the photos that were actually posed of course which he did quickly as we didn’t want to miss our reception). We had our engagement photos with him too and they turned out great plus we love our wedding teaser pictures! We had full rights for all photos right away without having to worry about copyright issues. He offers great packages that include a lot of options and extras! We compared him to many others and are VERY happy that we chose him! He is wonderful!! Caitlin & Zach Wedding 7/1/2016

Kevin and I loved having Paul as our photographer! We hired him for our engagement session and our wedding and could not be happier. His determination to know us as a couple was appreciated greatly and so different to other photographers we talked to. He responds super-fast and was super-cooperative throughout the entire wedding. He's an absolute ninja with a camera and was everywhere for every moment without getting in the way!! We had such a great time working with him on both occasions and would hire him again in a heartbeat. We cannot say it enough how happy we are with his work.  When I looked at all our amazing pictures they made me cry tears of pure happiness :) Alicia & Kevin Wedding 6/26/2016

Paul went above and beyond all our expectations for our wedding at Longfellows in Saratoga. He is a master of his craft, a true gentleman, and takes pride in his work. He put the entire wedding party (and are families) at ease and made sure all the special photos were done quickly without rushing us. His suggestions were spot on and our wedding photos are simply astonishing. He captured our day perfectly. I would HIGHLY recommend Paul to anyone anytime as he is truly amazing. Sallie & Paul Wedding 6/25/2016

Paul was such an amazing choice for photographer on our wedding day at Belhurst Castle - he not only was an expert at his job but assisted coordinating all of my vendors and bridal party members to ensure the best possible wedding experience for us. I'm pretty sure he memorized the (extensive) list of family/bridal party names and relationships as well, as he knew exactly who to call in for the right photos the whole day!! He helped keep us on schedule and made sure we were set up to enjoy our wedding while still getting all the important memories and photos. He is truly a seasoned professional and was so flexible, responsive, and helpful throughout. Everyone at my wedding had great things to say about him- and he kept us laughing the entire day! Can't imagine anything he could have done better!! Thank you Paul for being so amazing!!! Alix & Ron Wedding 6/19/2016

Paul did both our engagement and wedding photos and was absolutely exceptional to work with. We're both shy people and he really made us feel very comfortable around the camera. He is wonderful at gathering everyone for group photos and seemed to be everywhere at once the whole night to capture every little moment! He goes above and beyond being "just a photographer" - helping with everything from getting the boutonnieres pinned on our bridal party (and dads) to working directly with the venue staff at Beardslee Castle if we needed anything. Paul's Weddings-by-the-Hour package was VERY reasonable and his turn around time for photos is excellent. We can't recommend him enough to all our newly engaged friends. Quick update as we received our photos yesterday and they came out absolutely beautiful. We were amazed at how Paul managed to be everywhere at once to capture so many moments of the day and didn’t miss anything. Thank you so much for making our wedding memories so incredibly wonderful! Lynne & Josh Wedding 6/17/2016

Paul Saunders was the best!! He really captured everything we wanted on our wedding day and also did our engagement pictures at Turning Stone too. His work really is second to none and we love all our pictures!! Tons of enthusiastic energy and makes everyone very relaxed!! I would highly recommend Paul to anyone!! Colleen & Paul Wedding 6/12/2016

Paul was a complete professional right from the start. At the ceremony he treated us (and our children) like celebrities. He remembered all our family's names and was a genuine pleasure to work with. The photos all came out amazing and we couldn’t be more delighted with everything. Tracey & Joel Wedding 6/10/2016

Paul shot our wedding at the National Museum of Dance in Saratoga as well as some engagement photos for us last October. Before hiring, we met Paul for a casual chat, where he discussed with us what we wanted and he showed us some of his work. We were instantly impressed with his portfolio, philosophy of the photographer’s role in the wedding, and his great prices for the quality of work he offered. We decided very quickly after leaving that we would go with Paul, and that turned out to be one of the best decisions we made, vendor-wise, regarding the wedding. We had the discussion, multiple times, that, aside from the groom’s brother, who performed the wedding, Paul was the only person we hired who caused us no trouble and was completely on-the-ball the entire time. From the beginning, Paul was very organized, communicative, friendly, and up-front. Paul also applied no pressure and gave us plenty of time to choose what package we ultimately wanted. We decided to go with the “weddings by the hour” option, which was very flexible and a great value. For just $150 more, we had a great engagement photo shoot which allowed us an opportunity to work with Paul before the wedding, and get a more personal taste of his photos. At his suggestion, we later chose some of our favorite photos and showed them to him so he had a better idea of what we liked for the wedding day. The actual wedding day was a breeze. He was prompt, had learned everyone’s name, and, as promised, took a number of pictures of us, our families, and groomsmen/bridesmaid’s immediately following the ceremony. After that, he let us go enjoy cocktail hour and the reception and the photos for the rest of the night were much more candid which we love. Overall, working with Paul was a great experience, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others we know who are getting married. We are absolutely delighted. Caitlin & Jonathan Wedding 6/5/2016

I can't say enough wonderful things about Paul! He worked with me before the big day to make sure he understood what we were looking for with our wedding photography. It was obvious, even in our early meetings, how he truly loves what he does, one of the reason's we settled on him in the first place. He moved the bridal party along the day of the wedding to make sure that we got the shots needed and still kept on us our tight timetable. He managed the large family group shots with ease and had everyone laughing, and there is nothing I love more than getting genuine smiles in photos! Paul's quick responses to emails and thoroughness allowed me to focus on other tasks, and keeping the bride at ease was huge to me the days before and the day of the wedding. I am still getting comments from the bridal party and guests about how charming and friendly he was, and the quantity and quality of photos he was able to get throughout the entire day! I would hire him again in a heartbeat as so delighted! Jessica & Scott Wedding 6/4/2016

Paul photographed our engagement shoot and our wedding and I would highly recommend him. He is amazing! I was anxious the day of the wedding and he helped me to feel at such ease. My favorite thing about Paul is he is great with taking candid photographs as well as all the family pics. We also had our dog included in the engagement shoot and wedding and Paul did a great job at getting our dog's attention and having him in the photos which was huge for us. Many people approached me at the wedding saying how much they loved our photographer. He makes it so fun for everyone! Jess & Jeff Wedding 5/29/2016

Paul was absolutely fantastic - we had so many of our guests come up to us during or after the wedding and ask about his services. His super energetic personality gets everyone else excited to take photos during the wedding and encouraged the wedding party to take photos we wouldn't normally have done. On the flip side, he was very welcoming to suggestions and went with the flow for any photo requests. The day of, it's great to have an experienced photographer who knows how to keep everything on schedule as well - it seems something so small, but with Paul there, we were able to get photos at every location at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort in Vermont we wanted and were still able to make it to our cocktail hour. He gave great tips before the wedding and made us think about things we wouldn't normally have thought of. His response turnaround was always within the day. If you are looking for a quality photographer who really enjoys what he does, then Paul is your guy. Would recommend for any event as he is amazing! Lauren & Sam Wedding 5/27/2016

Paul Saunders photographed our May 2016 wedding, and we couldn't have dreamed of a better photographer for our special day. My husband and I enjoyed working with Paul from our first phone calls and meeting months before the wedding to the last photograph taken at the reception. Paul's wedding experience is evident in his eye for detail and many suggestions for personalizing the wedding that extend beyond just the photography. Paul took time to get to know us as a couple and get a strong sense of the style and feel we were aiming for in our wedding. Our families were impressed that he made sure to know the names of our attendants, parents, and grandparents. Paul arranged traditional photos and used his creativity for some fun and interesting pictures as well. We could tell how he was inspired by the setting, as he got started with some creative pre-ceremony photos as soon as he arrived at our venue. In our wedding party and family photos, he got everyone laughing and smiling genuinely. I'm usually very uncomfortable in front of a camera, but I felt much more natural and relaxed because of Paul's fun personality. He is all about capturing the special moments and we LOVE our preview pictures! As an expert wedding photographer, Paul worked efficiently to capture all of the photos we wanted, but to still ensure that my husband and I had the time to enjoy our day and spend time with our guests and not miss our reception. We were also very happy with the selection of print/album packages to choose from and the option to add "by-the-hour" photography as well. He offers great flexibility to fit every budget. We highly recommend Paul with absolutely no reservations! Meaghan & Ben Wedding 5/22/2016

Booking Paul Saunders was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. After meeting him at several wedding shows and reading the repeated phenomenal reviews online, we knew he was the right man for the job. He turned out to live up to everything we hoped and more! Not only is he affordable, but he was a pleasure working with and made the entire day effortless. We used his weddings-by-the-hour package to book him for 7.5 hours, which included 3 hours prior to the wedding to get as many of the standard family and wedding party pictures completed prior to the ceremony. Paul took full advantage of this and actually made the entire time leading up to our wedding ceremony fun, entertaining and completely relaxing. Throughout the ceremony and reception, Paul blended right in and was able to shoot many fantastic candid photos. After the wedding, almost every person had two reactions: (1) Expressing how much fun they had and (2) raving about how BRILLIANT the photographer was! Paul has a fantastic eye as well as a wonderful sense of humor and we cannot express our gratitude for his efforts. We would absolutely recommend Paul for any occasion and many of our family and friends are keeping his name and contact information in mind for future reference. Thank you Paul, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you!!! Chelsea & Alec Wedding 5/21/2016

Paul Saunders is an amazing photographer. He is professional and courteous. On our wedding day, he made sure to get all the "posed" photos over as quickly as possible so we could enjoy the rest of our reception. He also helped keep us on target with the time frame for the ceremony which was no small feat. After those photos, he was like a ninja, snapping tons of wonderful candids. He has been a dream to work with and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for the best. Sara & Dan Wedding 5/15/2016

We were VERY happy with the services provided by Paul Saunders! He was so easy to work with while we were out of town planning the whole wedding, and was organized and concise on our calls prior to the wedding. We could tell right away that he had a passion for photography. On the day of the wedding, he was a great asset to my husband and I, as we tend to be more laid back and indecisive. Paul was able to take control of the family and wedding party and ensure pictures got done quickly and efficiently. He was able to make us laugh while doing so, and appreciated his kind manner in which he got through pictures quickly so we could enjoy our families and friends. We can’t wait to see all our pictures!! Lisa & Tim Wedding 5/8/2016

Paul Saunders is AMAZING! If you have the privilege of meeting him at any bridal shows or vendors shows you should book him right there! In the beginning stages of planning our wedding we saved and pinned many different wedding photo ideas, at that point we did not know which photographer shot these fantastic and creative ideas, until we went to a bridal show at Longfellows! This is where we first met Paul, and what caught our eye were all the photos Paul had on display, a majority of them we had saved and pinned previously. Once we met Paul we knew that he loved what he does and you can see it in his photos, right there we knew that we wanted Paul Saunders as our photographer. Our wedding was not supposed to be until 2017 and when we decided to move it up 2016, we thought there was no way we are going to get Paul, but we emailed and anxiously awaited a response, truly believing that he was going to say he was booked up. We received a quick response and scheduled a meeting with Paul and we booked him right there! The best decision we made. Paul's packages are affordable and there are packages to for every single budget! We booked Paul for 6 hours and he arrived early to get the best shots (shots that we gave him little to no direction on). When our 6 hours were up Paul did not rush out the door or stop his watch and say "see ya." He came over to us and thanked us for hiring him and said he would be on his way. We looked around about 30 min after that and he was still there taking more and more shots. My bridal party and everyone attending absolutely LOVED Paul! They kept asking us where we found such an amazing photographer. He is kind and very, very attentive. He gets great shots without being seen (it is very impressive) The whole process with him is relaxed and fun! If there was an option of giving more stars we would have given Paul a 10 out of 10! He is absolutely BRILLIANT! Nicole & Christopher Wedding 4/29/2016

Paul was absolutely awesome from start to finish. He was super-responsive, super-accommodating, flexible, and (this is actually really important) cheerful and very pleasant all the time. He knew we didn't want to spend the whole cocktail hour taking photos, and he accommodated as much as he could. He directed people with the precision of a general, but always with a smile and a joke. He did everything with that smile, which helps, because our wedding required him to herd cats. Paul answered every one of my emails in a very timely fashion, and he accommodated us by moving some pictures to later in the night so we could enjoy our wedding and not miss being together with everyone. Your photographer is a difficult choice, but I promise you won't be disappointed with Paul! I will add that my parents really liked him and they are not easily impressed. They thought he did an amazing job, especially with some big personalities in our wedding party. Regina & Eric Wedding 4/30/2016

We feel so fortunate to have found Paul during our search for a wedding photographer! As many couples can probably understand, the search can be arduous and make you feel like you are buying a used car. I was really shocked at how some of the photographers we spoke with were incredibly rude and condescending when they learned that we actually had a budget (how shocking!) and didn't want things like a videographer. What we wanted were quality photographs and most importantly a photographer with a good personality that would fit in well with our guests....and then we found Paul. Not only is Paul extremely talented but he understands that not everyone is looking to spend their last penny on their wedding. Paul was willing to work with us and customize a package that suited our needs and our budget. During this process, Paul was extremely helpful and never more than a phone call or e-mail away whenever we had questions about the process or ideas of photographs that we wanted to capture. We ended up hiring Paul to do our engagement photographs over the Summer and upon seeing them we were really impressed by the pictures. We knew there would be great things to come at the wedding and Paul did not disappoint! We were SO thrilled with Paul that my wife recommended him to her sister for her upcoming wedding and she booked one of his staff. I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for an amazing photographer that will listen to their requests as opposed to forcing a couple into a pre-designated package with options they don't want or need. If we ever find ourselves in need of a photographer again... we will only call Paul! Allie & Jeff Wedding 4/9/2016

Paul photographed our wedding on Friday April 8, 2016 in Albany. A week before the wedding he contacted us for all the information including all the details on my huge family. He was spot on and knew all their names plus got all the pictures we asked for and more we never thought to get. He was very organized and made sure everything went on schedule and as planned. I will highly recommend to anyone needing a photographer. Can't wait to see our sneak peek pictures tomorrow. UPDATE… OMG. Thank you SOOOO much. They came out AMAZING. I can't wait to see the rest. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! Blaine & CJ Wedding 4/8/2016

We could not have possibly been happier with our photographer! Everything from Paul was professional and timely, and our pictures are beautiful! Paul did everything he could to make our wedding day so wonderful and have pictures to prove it! In the hectic time of planning a wedding and working full time, one of the things I appreciated the most was that he provided email reminders of payments due, info needed, etc. I know I started to feel very stressed getting everything done, and Paul's organization and clarity in communications really helped ease that stress! We also had a phone call the week of the wedding to go over logistics, which helped to ease nerves and ensure a smooth day. Having a destination wedding in Burlington, Paul also knew all the best spots to go and take pictures by the waterfront and breweries! It was amazing because we had one less item to research! We would work with Paul anytime as he went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect and we know he would do the same for any couple!. He is just wonderful! Annie & Nathan Wedding 4/2/2016

Paul is wonderful! He shot our wedding at Glen Sanders Mansion and I never ever write reviews, but for Paul, I must rave about him because he was amazingly friendly, energetic, kind, and definitely added to the fun of our wedding day. He memorized all of the wedding party guest's names and family member’s names and he was attentive to all our needs for meetings ahead of the day and for all wanted pictures the day of the wedding. Highly recommend him!!!! Maribeth & Joseph Wedding 3/20/2016

Paul Saunders is beyond perfection in every way! Having a small, intimate second wedding, as well as a destination wedding in Vermont from New Jersey, we needed to select everything from a distance, while putting a huge amount of trust into all of our vendors and the reviews from strangers to help us find our way. From the very first, and immediate, response to the ongoing emails and friendship we've made...we hit one out of the park with finding Paul! He is beyond all of the items you expect to check off of your list in the kind of photography you want for such a special day, but he is the kindest human being you will ever meet. He made each and every one of our guests at ease and they are still commenting on how wonderful he was! Just one week after our wedding, we unexpectedly lost our father, who was in Vermont with us just one week prior, happy and healthy as could be. In our devastation, we reached out to Paul to send us every picture he could find with him in it, although our pictures weren't due to be ready yet. This was above and beyond what any contract or package would ever include, but without any hesitation, Paul had pictures to us within the hour. Taking his personal time to help comfort us in our grief was just tremendous and we cannot thank him enough! We got a little peek into what the rest of the photos would be, and well, they are simply dreamy! Friends say they look like the cover of a magazine! We had a very foggy, wintery day, but with Paul's talented eye, he helped us rearrange our ceremony site just minutes before our guests were to arrive...all just to capture the best angle for lighting and background due to the weather. He was spot on and the results are stunning! I could go on and on about this incredible photographer and person. If I still have your attention as you've been reading this...stop your search for the perfect photographer and call Paul! I promise you will not be disappointed! Dana & Anthony Wedding 1/16/2016

I first met Paul a year ago in Lake Placid, NY and one year later we met again on our special day in Lake Placid at the beautiful Whiteface Lodge. I cannot say enough good things about Paul! His professionalism, attention to detail and his passion for photography. All truly amazing. I could not be happier with his services and willingness to go above and beyond. He was on top of his game all while being friendly and accommodating to our every need. His timing was impeccable right down to our wedding sparkler entrance. He even captured the sprinkling of snow for the brief moment-knowing my Dad was present! I cannot thank him enough for sharing our special day with us. Family and Friends are still talking about Paul! And he will be a positive conversation for years to come. Thank you!! Jill & Rob Wedding 11/20/2015

Paul was absolutely amazing! He definitely knows everything there is about weddings and gave us great pointers along the way that we never would have thought of. He was very professional, but had a great sense of humor and got along with everyone. He made sure to know the family members and get the pictures we asked, even in the spur of the moment if I asked. He also knew how to navigate sensitive situations as we did not want some boyfriend/girlfriends in family pictures. No one even knew when he got them out of the picture. Paul was amazing to work with, takes amazing photographs, and ALL of our guests loved him and couldn't compliment him enough. Susan & Steven Wedding 10/17/2015

First let me just start off by saying Paul is INCREDIBLE and you should look no further for a photographer! Paul was such a great asset to our wedding team. He is so charismatic and truly passionate about what he does and it really set the whole wedding party into such great frame of mind. He was so great to help everyone move along quickly after the ceremony so we would be able to get to cocktail hour without feeling pressured or rushed at all. At first I was skeptical that Paul normally did not work with an assistant as the other photographers insisted on having a second photographer. He does not need it; I swear this man can teleport. I remember at one point seeing Paul giving tips to a guest how to get a better angle with their cell phone when taking a picture. He was so great and interactive with the entire crowd. Paul was the last photographer we met with. Our first meeting with Paul was in a Starbucks casually talking and looking at photos which was very different than meeting in the studio of others. The others we met with always made us felt like "look how great we are!" and after meeting with Paul he gave us the feeling of "this is how great you will look." He sold us on his genuine and sincere interest of who we were as people. Paul is a class act with excellent skills at a very reasonable price. You will not regret choosing him to be your photographer. Kaiti & Mike Wedding 10/11/2015

My fiancé and I recently had the pleasure of having Paul take our engagement photos. Paul knew a great setting for the shoot (The Crossings of Colonie), and from the moment we arrived, he was already working to find the best angles and lighting. We both immediately felt at ease working with Paul – he has a lot of great energy, and gives a lot of great direction as well. He knows what poses and expressions will look good, and does it all while still making the photos look very natural. We brought a number of props to use, and Paul managed to work each one into our photos. Paul knew how to pace the photo shoot, and always kept us moving without feeling rushed. Our photos turned out beautifully and truly captured the fun, romantic atmosphere of the shoot. I highly recommend Paul Saunders Photography, and can't wait to have Paul take our wedding photos next summer! Meridi & Jim Wedding 8/26/2016

Paul Saunders is an absolute darling to work with and we absolutely love our pictures!!. From the moment Paul arrived at the wedding it felt as if he was a part of the family. He learned all of the bridesmaid’s names and accommodated my mother with her every request (this is a mighty feat)! Paul is also magnificent at keeping everyone on schedule, he's like a 2nd wedding planner :) I would highly recommend Paul Saunders Photography for any/all of your occasions. He is wonderful and you will fall in love from the moment he opens his mouth! Thank you Paul for being so amazing and making our day perfect!! Jackie & Brandon Wedding 9/27/2015

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Paul. When we were looking for our photographer, he came right to our home to meet with us. After our initial meeting we knew he was the right choice for us. Our engagement session was fun and full of energy, and we got our flash drive in a couple weeks. He took so many great photos, it was hard to pick our favorites. During our wedding he was professional, helpful with picture suggestions, and worked very well with my husband's divorced parents. Paul had checked with us ahead of time about what pictures were important to us, and what pictures we wanted. We chose to do first look so that we could enjoy our cocktail hour. Paul made sure he was efficient and didn't make us stand around for hours waiting. We had an unplugged ceremony to make sure Paul got great pictures, and from the moment I entered the room, I didn't even notice him, he did a great job not being distracting. During cocktail hour and the reception he was everywhere, you would have thought there were at least 2 of him! And the answer was never "no," anything we wanted, we got. He got some great group shots of our extended families, as well as fantastic action shots, such as our daughter tackling our nephew in the middle of the dance floor! The best part, is that we own the rights to all of our photos and can print additional copies, or use them for Christmas cards, etc, as often as we would like!    Kathleen & Colin Wedding 9/4/2015

I fully and highly recommend Paul Saunders photography. He photographed my wedding in Lake Placid, N.Y., and did an incredible job! He took control of our large family and bridal party and kept things moving smoothly. He calmed us when we got nervous and even helped in taking initiative in getting people situated. He made sure he knew about our family and day and asked us questions that made us know he truly cared about us so that he captured our day exactly how we wanted. He went above and beyond for our wedding and the photos he took came out beautiful!!! My family even had comments about how wonderful they thought Paul was and I am the fifth of my siblings to be married. The photos are wonderful and while we received them awhile ago, we are sharing them now with our family and everyone is just so happy! Thank you Paul for capturing our day, I cannot recommend him enough, for being so professional, courteous, taking charge, being quick to respond to any questions, and for genuinely caring about us and our big day. Chrissy & Sara Wedding 7/17/2015

We selected Paul as our wedding photographer and decided to take advantage of the amazing package he offered for engagement pictures. Paul was always quick to respond with any questions or concerns leading up to the shoot. We had advised Paul that we are a camera shy couple, and he made us feel more than comfortable during our shoot. The shoot was fun, relaxed, and Paul's creative ideas throughout the shoot were great! The shots were perfect and we couldn't be more pleased with the end result. We're looking forward to Paul shooting our wedding in July 2016! Krystal & Paul Wedding 7/9/2016

Paul was awesome! We had him for our barn wedding in Latham, and he did a great job. He made everyone feel comfortable and was open to suggestions of shots I was looking for both on Pinterest and on site. He knew the venue well, and knew what would work and what wouldn't both with pictures and with the ceremony itself. He was also extremely helpful in sending me a few images ahead of time so I didn't have to wait until all of the images were edited to send thank you cards out. Looking at many other photographers before booking, his prices were competitive and he was very easy to get in touch with through the whole planning process. Thanks again Paul! Bet & Brock Wedding 8/30/2015

I am extremely happy that we decided to hire Paul as our photographer for our wedding on 8/28/15. We chose to do the "wedding by the hour" option and we had him from 3 to 11pm. He was there early to set up and stayed until the very end making sure to get all of the "must take" photos and capturing the candid photos during the "dance party". One major selling point for us was the fact that you get all of your edited pictures on a flash drive with copyright to them ALL. Many photographers charge you for their time and then want to charge you again for each picture that you want to print without getting all of the pictures that they were paid to take. I think that is absolutely ridiculous. In my opinion Paul does it the correct way. You pay one price (which is VERY reasonable) and get all of YOUR pictures so that you can decide what ones you'd like to print and then you still have ALL of the pictures to view/print at any time at your leisure. He does offer the option for photo packages and printing through him as well. He exceeded my expectations in every way. He was able to get all of the photos that were important to us plus more. He was fun and energetic and was GREAT with our young niece and nephews. He was able to engage with them and get them to hold still for "serious" pictures and get them crazy for the funny ones. It is very obvious that he loves his job. He is full of great ideas and suggestions that many people may not think of on their own. I loved the fact that he knew everybody's name in our bridal party in addition to all of our parents and grandparents names. Knowing everyone's names made the whole process faster and easier for everybody involved because there were no questions regarding who needed to be where and who needed to adjust in a picture. Another thing that I absolutely loved about him is that he is very personal. Although photography is his livelihood it wasn't about him and his schedule. He genuinely was there to please you. All he wanted to do was make sure that our day was as perfect as possible and he took all of our wedding day visions and thoughts into consideration as he was planning the photo schedule. It was very important to us that we were able to be our cocktail hour and he made that happen. I highly recommend Paul Saunders Photography to anyone who is in need of a professional genuine person who loves their job and making people happy. He is amazing. Elyse & Brian Wedding 8/28/2015

We have had such a positive experience working with Paul and can't wait for him to be a part of our wedding day! From the initial meeting with Paul (where he came to meet us in our town to make it convenient for us) to the many back-and-forth emails to get the perfect location and day for our engagement photos, Paul has always been kind and professional in his effort to give us exactly what we wanted. He helped us to include our two Rottweilers in the engagement photos working to take great pictures while keeping the attention of the dogs on the camera. Paul really works to get to know his couples and it is clear that your vision becomes his vision behind the camera. We love all the photos he's sent us just days after taking them. Paul is an amazing photographer and a great person to work with during your wedding process! Kerri and Erik Wedding 10/1/2016

WOW! To all the couples out there, Paul Saunders is who you want to book! He has a 10,000 dollar skill set but is the most reasonably priced photographer available! Paul worked with my fiancé over a couple weeks to plan the surprise proposal and was thrilled with how responsive, professional, and creative he was in helping Kevin create the perfect moment. Paul was able to hide in the Yaddo gardens to capture our proposal without me having any idea until after the ring was on my finger. Paul's focus during the shoot was capturing our moment & emotion in the perfect way and the pictures we got from our engagement are breathtaking and did just that. Paul's experience is evident and the wedding planning ideas he has shared with us are just as valuable. He responds to emails almost instantly and never overlooks the important details (taking pictures on our cell phone so we could share the news with our family instantly, giving us a sneak preview of pictures the next day, mailing the PDF with over 150 stunning pictures on it promptly and we received it in the mail 3 days after the day of our engagement. We are beyond impressed and he has helped make this time in our lives truly special & have no doubt whoever books him will feel the same! Sara & Kevin Wedding 8/27/2016

We hired Paul to be our wedding photographer with his "Weddings-by-the-hour" package and could not have been happier with the service he provided. He joined my mother, sisters and I for pre-wedding photos at a close-by hotel, then went to our wedding venue and spent time with the groom. During the ceremony he made sure to get multiple angles of every picture I had requested. He took great care in capturing not only beautiful moments among my family and friends but also of the surroundings, decor and details. Paul was a true professional and worked hard to make sure the details were perfect, for example, he noticed that my sister forgot to remove a hair-tie from around her wrist which he made sure was off before pictures. Although it took a bit longer than I would have liked to receive our photos we ended up with over 2,000 beautiful shots for an extremely good value. Beyond delighted with everything. Alicia & Josh Wedding 8/1/2015

Thank you so much for everything you've done for us! You are absolutely amazing! Multiple guests let me know how awesome you were last night! Thank you so much for being very patient with some of the older and the "less cooperative" guests also! All of your efforts meant so much to us the way you made everyone smile and laugh. I really can't form words strong enough to express how amazing you are!! Thank you again for making our special day just so perfect at Longfellows! If I was there I'd give you a big hug! Thank you thank you thank you a million times over! Danielle & Tom Wedding 6/28/2015

I could not possibly recommend Paul more! He was an absolute joy to work with! He has genuine enthusiasm for what he does and it shows in the quality of his work. I was a nervous bride and I do not really enjoy getting my picture taken, but he has such a wonderful personality that he really put me at ease. He did both our engagement and wedding photos and we could not be more pleased. He is a true professional, and he truly loves what he does. He was very responsive any time I emailed him and I never had to worry about a thing. Having Paul as our photographer really did make our wedding that much more special. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Tracey & Frank Wedding 6/05/2015

I can't begin to say enough about Paul and the quality of service he provided. From the moment we met him we felt so comfortable and excited to work with him. He was super responsive to all our questions and concerns and he included ideas that certainly made for such high quality pictures. Our preview pictures were waiting for us after we returned from our honeymoon and shortly after we received over 2300 pictures to browse through. The quality is top notch. He captured moments we didn't even know happened. His personality is infectious. You won't be sorry by hiring Paul. He's simply amazing! Karry and Dean Wedding 5/23/2015

Paul was recommended to me from a former bride and he was fantastic from the very beginning. Always available to answer any and all questions, even offered great wedding planning tips aside from the photography aspect. The day of the wedding, Paul arrived and immediately got the ball rolling. His high energy really got us excited. He had wonderful recollection of our names (parents, wedding party, etc.) from just our brief phone conversation days earlier. He impressed me with different ideas he had and knows how to get the job done. He works quickly and efficiently. Our entire wedding party got to enjoy cocktail hour with our guests! The bride and groom are usually pulled in every direction and Paul never pressured us or made us feel stressed. He mentioned to us "we'll do that picture in a few minutes, you're the bride and groom, go upstairs and hide for 10 minutes if you want. Enjoy your wedding." I would absolutely recommend him for your wedding. Great guy, very pleasant and professional. Laurie and Dustin Wedding: 5/24/2015

We hired Paul for our wedding a few weeks ago and he was beyond wonderful. The pictures turned out beautifully and we got all of them (over 2000) within 2 weeks, which was amazing. Many of my friends and family have already expressed how much they love the photos and how well he captured the event. From the first time I contacted him last summer, he has been incredibly professional and responsive. I am amazed at how quickly he responds to emails and how flexible and accommodating he is. He clearly wants to get everything just right and he'll happily do whatever it takes to meet your needs and requests. When we had some post-wedding requests for changes to a few photos he was very obliging and happy to help. On our wedding day, he was excellent to work with - my bridal party loved him and commented on how friendly and relaxed he was (while still working quickly and getting everything done). He had great ideas for photos and throughout the day, he was all over the place, making sure to capture every moment. And, for one person, I'm amazed at how much he was able to get. If you quickly scroll through the 2000+ photos from the day, it almost plays like an entire movie of our wedding! I would absolutely recommend Paul for any and all photography needs. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and I'm so glad that we had him capture our wedding day. The photos are truly spectacular and we will treasure them for years to come! Julie and Kit Wedding 5/16/2015

Paul is a dream! He really did an excellent job taking photos on our wedding day. We were both very nervous and Paul just jumped right into the process and guided us expertly. I was able to send him a few examples of photos that we would like and he was able to recreate them beautifully for us. He knew exactly how to pose us so that we would have the most beautiful pictures possible, and he really understood our needs. We're not really into the "sappy" wedding photos, we like a more classic look which Paul instantly understood. His pictures are gorgeous, I was nervous because I feel like I normally do not look like myself in photos, but he really captured the best version of myself on film. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone, he's very professional and laid back. He was even ok with the fact we brought out dog along for some of the pictures! Suzie and Bryan Wedding: 5/6/2015

We hired Paul for our wedding in January 2016. He just did our engagement photos, and we love them. Paul was great from the first time we met with him, he put us at ease and was very professional. Paul's prices are great, and you get a lot for your money. We received our flash drive with our engagement pictures within a couple days and we love all of them. He was very flexible during the shoot and did all the poses we wanted to do even though it was below zero and snowing. We felt comfortable around Paul, his personality is great and feels more like a friend than a stranger. We are very happy with Paul, and can't wait for our wedding and to see the beautiful job he will do! We would definitely recommend Paul! Brianna and Chad Wedding: 1/1/2016

Without any hesitation, I would recommend Paul to any soon-to-be married couples looking for an awesome photographer. Paul did our engagement photos, as well as our weddings photos and we could not be more pleased with the results. It is so clear that Paul genuinely loves what he does and truly cares about his clients. He made sure that everything was exactly how we wanted it (and even better!!). He has a great sense of humor and makes everyone feel so comfortable. He is super energetic and does the job with enthusiasm and excitement. It's awesome! Paul has always been extremely quick in responding to emails and our pictures came SO fast. We were told to expect the photos of our wedding in 4 weeks and amazingly had sneak peek pictures the day after our wedding and ended up receiving all 2,000 plus edited pictures in 2 weeks. They are GREAT! They came on a flash drive and also had flash drives that we were able to share with family members. Paul's prices are extremely fair and he works with couples to arrange a package that works for their budgeting needs. He is just so fantastic to work with and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing photographer!! Kimberly and Matthew Wedding: 3/14/2015

They say "first impressions are everything". I met with Paul once before my wedding, and instantly knew he was the photographer I wanted to capture our day. I had been interviewing photographers for almost a month and discovered him via an Internet search on The Knot. He was willing to travel all the way from the Capitol Region to where we were getting married near Turning Stone Casino (almost two hours away!) He kept in constant contact with me over the course of the next five months before the wedding, answering any questions I had promptly. He rang me the week of to discuss last-minute details, and the day of he arrived by the time we agreed upon at my house waiting to snap the first moments. I would recommend Paul to ANYONE. He is extremely professional, kind, courteous, knows the photos/poses to take, and with whom (will tell you where to stand and what to do, which is exactly what I needed that day, haha), he has a variety of packages to choose from which will work for any budget, and takes amazing pictures! We had our photos back within 2 weeks, on flash drives to distribute for family/friends, and a thumb drive for our own use. If you are looking for the best photographer to capture your special day, Paul Saunders is IT! Tracee & Brandon Wedding: 3/13/2015

Paul was great from the first time we met with him! He was very friendly from the start and wasn't pushy with a sales pitch and cattle prod to his most expensive package, which I found refreshing after meeting with other wedding vendors. His goal is for his clients to get what they want and what they need without destroying their budget. I found all his pricing be much more reasonable than some of the other photographers we spoke with as well plus he has more options than any of the others I spoke with. His work is high quality and he won’t try to push you into any of those real corny Photoshop cheesy pictures either. Throughout our planning Paul has been unbelievably flexible and understanding with unexpected changes in our wedding plans. I believe that Paul truly understands that part of his art is capturing the moments that he is photographing and not just making sure that everyone is in the shot. He will also respect the officiant and other wedding vendors while doing his job and isn't one of those photographers that is always right in your face snapping pictures. He is really good at capturing those moments that you always say..."I wish we had a picture of that"...with Paul...there's a good chance he got it! We highly recommend Paul and I say if you are presently looking for a photographer...call him first! If you still want to meet with other photographers, go for it, but you'll be calling him back when you’re done being dragged through constant up-selling sales pitches!
