" Paul did an exceptional job photgraphing our wedding ceremony and reception. He was extremely personable and friendly and made us all feel very comfortable. When I received the images, they were more than I could have ever imagined. When I showed others the pictures, they could not stop talking about the quality of the shots. I highly reccommend Paul to anyone looking for a top-notch photographer." -Laura

"I couldn't imagine my wedding day with a different photographer. He was easy to speak with and get a hold of before the wedding date and it made it so much easier come wedding day. We just got our wedding photos back and we had so many good shots that we didn't even know he took. He didn't get in the way and he really listened to what we wanted. Also take a look on his website for some cool ideas of some pictures to take on your big day. We definitely think he was worth every penny. When it comes to your wedding day all you have after the event is pictures and what you remember at the end of the night (which flies by). Seeing the pictures he took were amazing and we were very pleased." -Kevin

"I could have gotten married anywhere and none of the details mattered that much to me. The only thing I was really concerned about was my photographer because to me the pictures that we would have to look back on and take us back to that special day were important. My first choice photographer was already booked so I started looking around. When I came across Paul Retherford I really liked the look of his pictures so I called him and booked him. We were on a tight budget and he was willing to work with us on a package that worked for us. He went over all our likes and concerns on the phone closer to our wedding date and I was so excited to have him there. So time to walk down the isle and queue the rain...My dress and everything got wet, it was a downpour. Honestly Paul's demeanor and attitude and infectious smile was contagious and my husband and I had the best time getting wet and taking pictures. Honestly our amazing photographer saved our day and our amazing pictures prove it! I just want to say i could not have been happier that my first choice photographer was already booked. I can't wait to have another reason to book Paul Retherford." -Lauren

"Paul was great! We have so many wonderful pictures from our wedding day that we don't even know what to do with them all! He was a lot of fun to work with and made everyone feel comfortable all day long." - Penelope

"Paul was wonderful to work with. The quality of the images he took at our wedding is amazing. He's a true professional." -Steve
