I spent a great deal of time looking into our options for wedding photographers, and trying to narrow down my choices. We were already interested in Paul Saunders Photography based on our internet searches, and when we finally attended the Longfellows wedding show and met Paul... Read More in person, we knew he was exactly who we wanted to take our wedding photos. We received the link to our engagement photos a few days ago, and I am still smiling whenever I think about them! Neither of us consider ourselves very photogenic. In fact, in the past 12 years we have taken maybe 2 or 3 pictures together that we truly like. However, in less than 90 minutes Paul was able to capture hundreds of photos of us that we absolutely love! We have had several friends and family members tell us that our engagement shoot was the best one they have seen, and we are sure that this is because of the number of beautiful locations and different poses that Paul captured us in. He is a very knowledgable and efficient photographer; we didn't have to do anything but show up ready to go. We told him he wanted photos taken in Lake George and he knew exactly where to bring us for a wide range of beautiful and unique backgrounds. The day of our shoot, it was in the high 40's and there were some light showers as well, but we wanted to proceed with the shoot and Paul was really great about it. We both had so much fun during the shoot that we didn't even think about the cold or worry about the rain once, and we actually feel that the overcast skies made the pictures even more beautiful. The only part of this whole process that has not been easy is trying to choose which photos we want to print! I can't emphasize enough how happy we are with our decision to choose Paul Saunders Photography for our engagement shoot, and how excited we are to have him for our wedding day! We highly recommend him to anyone in search of a photographer for any event.
