Hello again! I’m based in St. Catharines and work/travel a lot around Niagara, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo and Toronto area. I’m all about natural – natural lighting and capturing moments as they unfold photojournalistic style. To add on to my main photographic approach, I’ll also be posing you here and there; carry flashes with me for minimally lit settings; and we’ll definitely take your important family photos!

Paolo was the photographer for our January 2019 engagement shoot and June 2019 wedding. Words can’t describe what an amazing job he did on both days. He was so responsive and friendly during the process, sending us updates and words of encouragement as the wedding came closer. He put in a lot of time and effort on the day of the wedding, going above and beyond to make sure he had the best shots for our photos. Everyone was very comfortable shooting with Paolo and our wedding party had so much fun. From the previews he’s given us so far, the photos are stunning and perfectly capture what it was like on the day. On top of the planned photos, Paolo captured a lot of unstaged moments without us evening noticing which turned out so good and are our favourite shots. We can't recommend Paolo enough!

I don't usually leave reviews but I had to leave one to let the world know how AMAZING Paolo is. He was the only photographer for our wedding of 250 guests on Aug 4th 2019 and he also did our engagement shoot. I researched extensively to find the right photographer being the picky person I am and Paolo was the answer to my prayers! His style of candid photography was exactly what we were looking for and he took the time to understand our personalities. My now husband is camera shy but Paolo was so great in making the both of us feel comfortable and the shots captured were truly intimate and unique. Paolo was punctual and always maintained a constant flow of communication keeping us both in the loop. He went above and beyond on the day of our wedding and honestly not only is he a photography genius but he is a great human who we are now lucky to call our friend. I cannot recommend him enough and we will forever be grateful for everything he has done :)

I could not rave enough about Paolo! He was incredibly friendly and professional from the moment we met him! He always gave us sneak peaks of our photos and put his personal touch and style into everything from the meetings we had to the photoshoots and the editing of the photos! He was so flexible with locations, second shooters and hours throughout the day that we truly did not have to worry or put a second thought into anything! We are truly grateful to have hired him and had him to work with! He even played music at our first look that added something so incredibly special for both of us. We will have some amazing memories to look back on and they will be amplified by the amazing photos he provided for us. I HIGHLY recommend! Thank you Paolo!
