    Paul and Melanie are an incredibly friendly and talented duo. From the first moment we met them, we knew that having them capture both our engagement session and wedding was the only option. Our friends and family raved about how beautiful our photos and videos were. Highly recommended!

    Paul and Melanie are absolutely amazing. Not only are they the nicest people, they are incredibly professional and talented. Their photos and video are the highest quality. They are also very creative. My friends and family all said that the photos Paul and Melanie took, and ... View more highlight video they produced were stunning. At least 10 people told us they cried watching the video. My family shared the photos and video with coworkers and friends that were unable to attend the wedding, and they gave the same feedback - they thought the photos and video were breathtaking, and some of them cried watching the video as well.
