Wedding Couples Are My Best Source of Referrals
Oh my, we received our beautiful proof book from our wedding. The quality of each picture was SIMPLY FABULOUS! We have no idea how you manage to be every where all at once to capture the photos you captured. Very classy photos and not overly-posed. You really deliver!
It is so funny Paul, Randy and I were talking about the wedding and we both admitted on our honeymoon that the day was a blur and that we did not remember much of it. Then before our honeymoon bags were unpacked the photos arrived and we really thank you for capturing the day. There were things we saw and finally when we received the beautiful proof book, it was just like a light bulb went on and we were finally able to see the few things we remembered but ALSO EVERYTHING WE MISSED!
You are every bit as awesome as we had heard. It was a giant leap of faith hiring someone a year prior to meeting them, but as I mentioned everywhere we went your name kept popping up and we are so glad we made the decision to go with our gut!
We would love to be able to provide references for you as we believe in your talent and have the pictures to back it up! :-).
Mr. & Mrs. Randall Craig Space (I just love writing that:)
Mike and I would really like to sincerely thank you for everything you did to create lasting memories for us on our wedding day. We are completely blown away by all the GREAT pictures you took. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else to take our wedding day photos. They were the most important thing to me and I'm SO thankful you were our photographer. Everyone we show our wedding book to rave about them and we rave about you to everyone. Your talent is amazing and we can't thank you enough!

I should have told you this sooner, but life has been crazy lately. We received our wedding album and it is gorgeous! What a beautiful keepsake of our special day! I was sooooo grateful for not only all the beautiful pictures you captured, but also your expertise in getting everything organized the way you did. You were incredible and I don't know what we would have done without you. It would have been utter chaos. My apologies for not telling you sooner, but you knew of your fabulousness already : ) Paul you are the best.

Thanks again for all your hard work and being so helpful. Our wedding pictures are beyond anything we expected. You truly have a VERY creative eye!! Thank you too for your recommendation for Vinny with Cool Cat Entertainment as he was so fabulous and such fun. We couldn't have been happier. When I tell people we had Paul Saunders Photography and Cool Cat for our photographer and DJ, their eyes light up. They know we didn't compromise taste and professionalism and hired the very best in the business. We are truly thankful for everything and that is thanks to you.

WOW!!!! What an absolutely incredibly great job you did with our wedding album and parent albums. They are truly beautiful. We have received so many compliments on them and the great pictures you took. Enclosed is another order. The more I show our wedding proof book, the more pictures everyone want. Thanks again for everything and for being the best photographer. You are amazing.

I can't express enough how happy we were with your work. You are an amazing photographer and you have such a wonderful way of working with people. You had everyone laughing so hard! John and I were completely blown away by you. You helped make our day that much more special. Thank you again.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for doing such a wonderful job on our wedding album and photos..I can't believe how GREAT they turned out..Since my wedding went by so fast, it was nice to re-live it through pictures..I hope all is well and thanks again for being such a great photographer and friend.
We received our wedding album today. It is absolutely amazing. It was definitely worth the wait. Thank you so much for all your hard work making it perfect for us. We are definitely going to recommend you to as many people as possible. You were great to work with. Hopefully we will run into you at another wedding soon.

Joe and I wanted to thank you for the outstanding job you did at our wedding. Not only were you extremely professional, but you made the whole picture taking process fun and truly enjoyable. All my bridesmaids thought you were hysterical and my mother and grandmother (Peaches) thought you were sensational. They told me they felt as if they were in a British comedy of sorts. Thanks for keeping things fun, but yet moving them along at the same time. We had an awesome time at our reception and your attention to timing allowed us to maximize the time spent with our guests at our party.
Thanks again and I will recommend your services to anyone and everyone I know who is getting married. Cheers!!
All the Best,
Andrea & Joseph Armstrong
If you recall, you shot our wedding last year (Oct. 17th, Appel Inn, Altamont, N.Y., Valerie Horton / Todd Miller). I wanted to thank you for your great generosity with photos sent to my terminally-ill cousin and her family. I attended her funeral last weekend. Pictures of her from our wedding dotted the walls at her wake and in their home. After viewing the body, I turned to her family. Of all the things her mother could've said at that moment, she expressed how thankful she was that you had sent them so much more than they had asked for. These pictures were of moments truly frozen in time. That was the last party she attended, and the last large family gathering, a time we will all cherish forever.
You did an absolutely fantastic job, both at the wedding, and thereafter with albums. My soft-spoken, reserved father, who has attended his share of weddings over the past 50+ years, raved about you and your performance. Thank you for making our big day all the better, and for your generosity which has warmed the hearts of a strained family.
I was in your shoes a year and a half ago when I started searching for the perfect venue, perfect vendors etc. To be honest with you, I was OVERWHELMED. This was my second marriage, so needless to say I wanted everything to be perfect. Anyway everywhere I went Paul's name kept coming up. Seriously no JOKE. His name came up at the dress shop, at the dj's and from a couple of brides to be that I met while shopping around. AND YES, even at AC Moore.
I actually hired Paul over the phone. Sight unseen. My sister is getting married in June '09 and she wanted him too but HE WAS BOOKED and that was back in April of last year when she asked. He was even kind enough to recommend a couple of people for her.
OK so here is the scoop on how he operates. He is ON TIME (yes he made it to the hotel before I got back from my hair appointment) He sprung into action helping my family with flowers and everything else because he is all business. Which is good because the final product is awesome. He worked us pretty hard after the ceremony but he is very funny and kept us all laughing. It is a good thing he did because seriously I didnt remember much that day and it wasnt until we got our pictures (two weeks later) that the lightbulb went on. His style is not overly-posed except for the "must have photos" and even those don't look all staged.
I am 34 and knew what I wanted and what I didn't want and he listened and delivered. We have over 800 original shots and couldn't be more delighted.
Although I live in the Catskills, my wedding was in my home town of Saratoga so he met us for the first time at the Desmond, it was only a month before the wedding, but over a year since we booked him. He went over every detail and gave me hints on how to make the day go smoothly (including beauty tips if you can believe it).
You will NOT be disappointed if you book with him.
You're so good Paul.. I had my bridemaids over last night and we were watching the video and you were just so great. We were all saying how helpful you were and how detailed you were...just a great man. Actually, you were the only one there for me when my bustle broke...nobody was paying attention to me except for you...Who needs bridesmaids...Ha ha. Even in the video, you were picking my dress up and handing it to me and I'm like "duhhh"... I'm so glad you had such a good time. You were just amazing!
Anyway, you're the best...anybody that I know who is getting married I just tell them there's only one Paul Saunders!!!
Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!

I just wanted to send a huge thank you on behalf of my entire family. I waited by the mailbox, and your photos arrived as promised. It was a very long week and when I opened your package with my entire family present, it was incredibly emotional. The pictures were so wonderful.
We immediately framed the photo you sent w/the flowers and used that for the Church and rest of her services and get together following the funeral mass. Combined with many photos from both of our weddings, your pictures made the entire celebration of her life unforgettable. One guest remarked to me that the photos were a special "gift" that she will never forget.
Keith, Jo, Brian and I were conversing about how many photos taken by you have been used in memory of our parents, and now my aunt. Strangely enough, you had captured them by themselves and they all are/were so special.
I can't tell you how much it means to us to have you forward all those photos, and the photo of "The Most Wanted" provided a MUCH needed laugh for everyone. You are a very special person and I can't thank you enough for what you have done. You provided many smiles in a very hectic, chaotic and emotional time.
Also, Brian's parents unwrapped their framed canvas of them with the grandkids and it was up on the wall within moments!
Lori (Brian, Keith/Jo and the rest of my family too!)
Thank You so much for coming over tonight and spending that time with us!!! WE LOVED THE ALBUMS!!!! I couldn't imagine going with anybody else after talking with you!! Everyone was yelling at me for not booking you right then on the spot. I don't know why I let you walk out of here!!! Please put us down and reserve our date and I will send paperwork and deposit tomorrow!!!! Thank You SO much!!! I'll talk to you very soon!!!!
We don't know how to thank you for making our wedding day so special. From at our house to the cermemony at St Rose and the reception at Eagle Crest, you were amazing!!! Our pictures are gorgeous and we now have lasting memories and you to thank. Please feel free to use us as a reference as we are so happy with everything.

We can't thank you enough for your great work. You gave us such a gift with all these great memories you captured. Your work far exceeded my expectations, especially in how artistically and professionally it was done from start to finish. You were amazing.
We just wanted to thank you again for the amazing job you did at our wedding. We can't tell you enough how much we appreciated not only your charming and fun demeanor, but also the quality and variety of photographs you took. We have recommended you time and time again to other couples looking for the perfect photographer for their special day as we believe that there is noone out there who can top you. All our family and friends are still talking about you and how fun and enjoyable you were.
Cheryl & Matthew Gannon
I am SO sorry for delay in getting this to you but things have been crazy with the holidays and now with all the brides calling me to book for next year!!!
But, THANK YOU for our beautiful album!! We are absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!! You gave us so many upgrades and extras that I cannot thank you enough for everything. I just wanted to let you know how appreciative and happy we are. Well, I know that you are keeping busy too since I have had several brides tell me that they have booked you already. So, I look forward to seeing you here at the hotel very soon!

You're awesome. I changed the pages without a problem. It was actually quite easy to do with the great instructions. I know that I've said it before, but there is no way I could ever thank-you for capturing our wedding day so well and for being so patient and helpful with me and trying to get everything right. I love looking at my album. It's just beautiful.
You truly have a gift for photography and you can tell that you love what you do through your pictures. It feels kinda funny that I don't think that I need your help with anything else. If you think about it, I've been emailing you about stuff for like 3+ years since I started all the planning for the wedding.
If you ever need any recommendations, please let us know and we'd be more then happy to provide whatever you need. Well, I'm off to go do some more planning for the next more important thing in our lives, our baby. If you want, I'll email you a picture after she arrives, 5 weeks and counting:-)
Just wanted to send a quick note to say we received our proof book!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! The pictures are absolutely beautiful/perfect/wonderful/outstanding - need I go on??? Paul, they really are amazing. I could not have asked for anything more. I've NO idea how I'm going to decide what photos to make into the album!!!!! I'll email once I receive the finished product, but I am not too sure how you will impress me anymore!!! Thank you Paul, you really made my wedding day incredible.
