Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

Monterey California & Washington, D.C. based photographer empowering couples around the world with the inspiration and resources to create a celebration worthy of their love. I like doing something different not your average posed photos something real something true.


A free pre-wedding meet over coffee or Skype is always good to define exactly what outcome you would like.

We enjoyed shooting with Paulina so much! She truly cared about connecting with us and getting the pictures we wanted, but also had great ideas of her own. I also really appreciate that she told me if I needed to make tweaks to poses, etc. She has such a creative eye and is extremely detailed, which can be seen in her photos. The angles and editing are fabulous and I also love that she uses old-school film in addition to digital! So cool and unique!! It really shows her passion for photography to go that extra mile. Paulina was even patient enough to shoot at multiple locations in the heat/humidity, scrambling over rocks, etc! Despite her busy schedule, she edited the photos and got them to us very quickly. It is heartwarming how focused she is on ensuring that we are happy with the photos and also to see her passion in her art and in work. We had so much fun and LOVE the final photos! Hope to shoot with her again in the future!!

Paulina was extremely personal, professional and able to capture what I had in mind without me having a photographers eye. She is extremely talented and was able to capture really great images for me. I am so happy with her photography! I cannot wait to work with her again!
We had a very intimate gay wedding, and Paulina was a great addition.
She met with us at our ceremony location prior to the date to get a feel for us as a couple, and scout the location. At the ceremony, there were only 4 of us and the priest, but Paulina managed to take really great shots from different angles without me noticing her. I was pleasantly surprised to see some of the shots, because I didn’t realize she had been moving around us.
The ceremony started late, and after it, Paulina made sure we took the time to get all the right shots, despite our time constraints. She gave us direction when we needed it, but the photos have a candid feel, which I really enjoy.
We had the shots online after only 2 days, and looking at the photos made me feel like it was my wedding day again.
Thank you again Paulina.
You went above and beyond to really capture us, and give us great photos to remember our day.
My husband and I got the chance to work with Paulina overseas in Italy where we are currently stationed (my husband is in the Navy) and I am so thrilled we did! We had a few chats about the types of shots we were looking for, attire (which Paulina was very helpful with) and she also provided us with a lot of creative and fun ideas as well. We shot with her over the course of two days and I loved her energy, her vision, ability to roll with the punches AND her attention to detail. She always noticed and fixed when my hair was out of place, my dress needed fixing, my hand looked weird, when something looked off/not right...which I truly appreciate as not every photographer does this and then when you get the photos back you may love it, except for that ONE thing. Luckily this didn’t happen with her. Also, she made us LOOK REALLY GOOD! My husband is extremely uncomfortable in front of the camera and she somehow got great shots while we got to have some fun staring at each other. The photos turned out better than we hoped for and we’d shoot with her again in a heartbeat. Not every person you work with for a short time becomes a friend, but she’s so warm and funny that this is exactly what I felt like happened. Thanks for everything Paulina!

Paulina did a great job taking our wedding photos and was so nice!! She has a creative bent and great ideas. We had a brilliant time running around dressed up, following her instructions and we got unique, priceless photos!! She even knew how to include our dog and has a critical eye that she uses to make you look your best! She was available via text to help us figure out clothing options, logistics beforehand and throughout the shoot she remained cognizant of keeping a theme in mind for the photos. On top of that, she was professional and made us feel comfortable. Would repeat in a heartbeat and will never forget it!!!
