What’s Different about Fotoimpressions Wedding Photography?
When you hire Fotoimpressions, you’re hiring more than a photographer. You’re hiring someone one of the world’s preeminent wedding photographers. Paul has a master’s degree in Fine Art in Photography from RIT. He has over two decades of wedding photography experience. He has won international awards for his wedding photography in Rochester, including “Photograph of the Year” awarded to Fotoimpressions Wedding Photography by both Microsoft and Creative Quarterly. You’re hiring someone who literally wrote the book on wedding photography (Paul wrote high-selling book Wedding Photojournalism | The Business of Aesthetics), and has had his wedding photography featured in: Martha Stewart Weddings, InStyle Weddings, Brides and Bridal Magazine, Professional Photographer, Creative Quarterly, and many more magazines and books.
Unlike some photographers who do the occasional wedding on the side, Paul has spent over the last 20 years of his life documenting weddings with brides, grooms, and their families. There are probably only a handful of people around the world that have a similar combination of education, experience, awards and books specifically in wedding photography that Fotoimpressions Wedding Photography has.
Paul goes above and beyond the call of wedding photographers. If you’re interested in hiring Paul for wedding or engagement photography, Paul will provide you the complete, finished galleries of the last 10-12 weddings that Paul has documents, so that you can decide whether his work and style fit your personality.
Paul also makes a unique connection with all of his clients. Paul likes to get to know his clients and their relationship as best as possible. “I like to get to know my clients, what they do professionally, how they are as a couple, their passions in their personal and private lives, where they met, how they met, their family history, backgrounds, where they’re going, etc.” It is this authentic, personal connection that Paul forms with his clients that allows him to so perfectly capture their relationship and love on film.
Where other wedding photographers work with a one size fits all formula for all couples, and take pictures that will get likes on social media, Paul displays couples’ chemistry, energy, and passions. “A lot of people have never been photographed professionally, and get intimidates and overwhelmed. I like to have fun with it and explore and take some pictures and laugh a lot, and treat it casually. I always end up being friends with my clients. They’re real people. I regard them, and get to know them, and I want to know them the same way as if I met a cool couple in a bar one night just going after drinks.”
“I always get better images when I make a true personal connection with my clients. I could tell you a lot about each and every client I’ve ever had.” It is this tried and true formula, of forming a real, unique connection with his clients in order to inform his photography that Paul uses to get authentic, passionate, and real wedding photos that come so naturally.
