2016 brought me a lot of change through an ended marriage. I was looking to have a photo shoot done with my 4 year old daughter to capture the happiness, strength and bond that we share. I needed someone to “capture that moment”, not simply just take a picture. I had seen this gift through Paolo’s work before and took a chance that he could capture exactly what I needed and wanted so I’d be able to display new beginnings on my wall. I absolutely couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Paolo, you have no idea what those pictures symbolize for me and I truly thank you. On a lighter note, thank you for also absolutely going with the flow and your flexibility as we worked out planning dates, times and my last minute location shift. You handled a hot mess perfectionist mom and her sassy, wild, moody little girl perfectly. Thank you.

My husband and I got engaged in August of 2015 and we procrastinated with everything including finding and hiring a photographer to take our engagement photos. We had trouble finding a quality photographer to take our photos in the short time we had available. Paolo was very accommodating and made time for my husband and I. During our photoshoot, Paolo was such a calming presence. He was able to capture beautiful candid moments as well as moments where Ben and I pretended to be models (haha) as he angled and positioned us different ways to help us look our best. We are so grateful for his time and work as our photos came out beautifully. I highly recommend Paolo as a photographer – he not only has an amazing and artistic eye; he also loves what he does and it’s clearly seen through his work!

I recently hired Paolo for a photo shoot of two kids (One 3 year-old and one at 9 months) for the holiday season and it was fantastic! He was awesome with his shots, and the kids loved him. He has an awesome artistic style that is unique when it comes to candid moments.Since he did such a great job with my kids, I hired him for my grandmother’s 90th Birthday Event party and he was able to catch the special candid moments for our family.Thank you Paolo for outstanding service and quality of the photos.

After seeing some of Paolo’s work on his website, I knew I wanted him to photograph my family. Paolo was willing to meet us in Rehoboth Beach where we were vacationing and was even flexible with the timeframe – important for a family with two toddlers on different schedules! Paolo did his homework and found a lovely location on a somewhat secluded beach. He made us all feel very comfortable and relaxed which made all the difference. The shoot itself took under an hour – also important with two little ones. The photographs are amazing! We could not be more pleased. Paolo delivered the images quickly and provided both color and black and white options (which I love!) Thank you Paolo for capturing images of what is a beautiful memory for me and my family! I will most definitely be calling you again…my family is growing - we are expecting grandbaby #3 in May!

The session with Paolo went great! I liked the fact that he was flexible with location and any ideas we had for our pictures. I also liked that Paolo had ideas that were fun and not the usual poses. When we got to our session, Paolo had made himself familiar with my specific location in order to take some amazing pictures. We really enjoyed our session and loved our final pictures. They made great Christmas presents for our family as well as great memories for us to keep. Thank you Paolo!

We had our first professional photos as a family of three taken by Paolo. He did such a wonderful job of capturing our personalities and the resulting photos were so full of emotion. He was patient with our one-year-old and was able to keep all of us comfortable and smiling. I have already recommended him to friends for family shoots!

Paolo has taken family photos for our family on two occasions, and both sets of photos turned out beautifully. In both instances, we were in a location with which Paolo was unfamiliar, but that didn’t bother him at all. He was very creative in making the spaces work and capturing both candid and posed shots. We also have two young kids and Paolo handled them expertly. He’s a natural with little ones—they light up for him! That’s a must-have for family photography. Paolo is also professional and considerate. He’s quick to respond to email, questions, and concerns and turned around the finished product quickly. Above all, though, the pictures are now our treasures. They adorn many of the walls in our home and bring us so much joy. We highly recommend Paolo and look forward to working with him again!
