Your Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer:
Hello, my name is Paul but my friends and family also call me Paolo or Pablo for fun.
Much of my formative years were spent moving around Canada and Europe as a military kid. As a result of being exposed to different communities and cultures throughout life, I've grown to embrace and enjoy the process of cultivating meaningful relationships. Being a professional photographer has given me opportunities to connect with so many new and interesting people. And so truthfully speaking, what I've come to discover is that I'm actually in the business of making friends.
To say that I love photography is an understatement. It's been seven years since I enrolled in the military and formally dedicated my life to this artful craft. The details matter and I delight in the practice of being present to observe and creatively document them. I've had the good fortune to be on the receiving end of excellent training, mentorship and travel opportunities as a photographer. I also thoroughly enjoy interacting with couples and finding ways to make them feel comfortable as they hang out in front of my lens.
Although my focus is with photography, small scale video production is also something that I have a palette for. Video is an incredibly powerful medium for telling your story. I think all families should consider being interviewed on camera as a way to preserve their stories and legacies. At present, Ottawa, Ontario is where I call home. And I'm thankful for the natural beauty of the people and places that I've found here. Luckily, these elements together continue to breathe life into my photography.
