Paul is absolutely amazing and knows his work! He was very professional throughout the whole process, from the booking until delivery our product. He has a great vision as a photographer and gave us so many great tips. Our family do an annual photoshoot every year. We’re so glad that we went with Paul! He made our photoshoot super fun and made our kids very comfortable throughout the shoot. We love the whole album of the photoshoot. Our pictures came out so great. We’ll definitely use him again next year! Save your time from searching around. Paul won’t disappoint. He really captured every moment that made this memory last a lifetime! Honestly, there isn’t enough words to fully say how much we loved having Paul did our family photoshoot this year! More...

Paul was our wedding photographer seven years ago. We always cherish the pictures he took for us and always get plenty of compliments from whoever sees them. After having a baby, we recently had another photo shoot with him and he didn't disappoint us again. I am sure we will use him again to capture wonderful memories for us. He is super nice and professional and above all artistic. I highly recommend him. More...

On picture day we were bummed because our little one year old was sick, but Paul made the best of it and despite a frustrating day trying to get baby to smile and not cry, we came away with some lovely pictures. Thanks Paul!

Paul is amazing in every sense of the word! After a busy day getting ready and dealing with last minute details of our wedding, when we saw Paul for our first look, it was like a breath of fresh, calming air! His warm energy, calming nature, genuine excitement for the day, and attention to detail made our time with him on our special day everything we could have asked for and more. We had complete trust in him to capture every special moment and he far exceeded our expectations. We are in awe of our photos that capture our pure happiness and the love we received from everyone! Our beach photos were breathtaking, but some of our favorites were the spontaneous photos that we took during our walk to the venue...so romantic and artistic! Paul was also a hero in being flexible with the timing and even agreed to stay later to capture every moment without any issue which was a great stress reducer. We can't wait to keep using Paul for all of our big moments! More...

Crystal and Paul are great! We have shot with them multiple times from family photos to our best friends wedding to our most recent engagement shoot! We had some much fun taking our engagement photos, they took their time and got some really great shots! We used one of them for our save the date and are SO happy with how they turned out. We would highly recommend them for any of your photo needs! More...

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul, who possessed a calm and engaging manner throughout the planning process and during the wedding. His presence was low-key, but he was committed to obtaining all the necessary photos. Paul was responsive to our needs and made us feel comfortable. We would recommend Paul without hesitation!

Paul is seriously the absolute best! I have used him for multiple photo shoots and every time I get the pictures back I am in awe. The first time I used him, I noticed an attention to detail that is come so unmatched with other photographers. He notices when your hair is out of place or if your strap on your dress isn't adjusted correctly and I knew that this was the person that I wanted photographing my wedding. Our wedding photos came out so phenomenally that we were featured in several bridal magazine and blogs. When I look back at the photos, I really felt like the photos deserved to be featured in high fashion magazines. Even 4 years after my wedding, I still have people finding my wedding photos online and complimenting how amazing the photos were. They are absolutely stunning and would not change anything about them. Obviously when I got pregnant and wanted to do a maternity shoot, I knew I would call Paul. He went above and beyond in recommending locations and even getting in the water at the beach to get the photos that I wanted. I don't know of anyone else that would literally get drenched wet for a simple photoshoot for a client! He is absolutely amazing and will give you so many photos to choose from. He will be our photographer for every life moment we want to capture as I know that no matter what, I will have a large selection of photos that I am so happy to showcase on my social media and printed in my home!!!

We've used Paul for multiple different occasions (wedding, maternity shoot and big family shoot) and milestones and every time we are blown away with our photos. He is seriously the best that we've worked with and we've tried a few other photographers before. He is super easy to work with and always has a vision that he executes perfectly. We trust him entirely whenever we shoot with him and know we won't be disappointed. For our wedding specifically, photography was especially important to us and the quality of the photos was unlike anyone else's when we were doing out research for the right photographer. He's great with the lighting set up too as we had an evening wedding and he made the most of the venue even though it was dark outside, the pictures came out beautiful. He also caught a ton of moments we didn't even he was there for that were super sweet and our favorites to look back on. When we did family photos, he was great at arranging everyone (there are 18 of us with little ones) and placing everyone in the right spot for awesome large group shots. When we did out maternity shoot, we told him where we were thinking and he knew of the perfect cove in Ocean Beach to take us to that was absolutely perfect and private that we got some real cool shots at. Can't say enough good things about him as a photographer and person :) More...

Paul is a fabulous photographer. The images are spectacular. He has a wonderful eye for composition and is truly gifted in this medium. He is great at coaching people to get great shots without making you feel awkward or uncomfortable. He is perfectionistic in his work but is laid back in his interaction. He is very professional, reliable, and timely in his communications. He is as hands off or hands on as you need making him so easy to work with. I appreciate his being so reliable on his end but so flexible on ours. I have absolutely no complaints about Paul. He is so great we have made him our family photographer. He started taking pictures for our wedding, then my maternity shoot, and then for our kids. He is quickly becoming a member of the family. We are so lucky to have found not only an awesome photographer but also a wonderful person in Paul. More...

Paul is amazing. He is kind, calm, and puts you at ease. He is very dedicated to getting the best shot and his eye for lighting is better than any other photographer I have worked with - and I have worked with a lot! Very happy with the photos he took, plus he is reasonably priced to boot. More...

Paul is a consummate professional–thorough, prepared, and cordial, quick to respond, easy to work with, and delivered some terrific photos.

We absolutely loved working with Paul for our surprise wedding last month. We planned to throw an anniversary party and surprise our guests after about an hour with a wedding. Paul was instrumental in helping us coordinate the reveal and the surprise and joy of the day really comes through in the images he captured. We wanted more casual photos and we are so pleased with the candid snaps of the whole event. Paul's expert eye caught some locations and lighting that we never would have thought of, but turned out to be some of our favorite photos. I would highly recommend Paul Douda Photography for any event you want to remember for a lifetime. More...

Paul was amazing to work with he walked us through everything and was there for us every step of the way. We were so happy with our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I wished we had more time to be more creative with our photos but for the time we had our photos were perfect. Paul definitely has an eye for this line of work. I was nervous when waiting for our photos because we only had about 45 minutes for photos for myself and my husband and felt like it was not enough time but paul caught every moment between us. I also liked how paul took control during the wedding he didnt miss a beat i definitely recommend him to anyone More...

Paul is the best!! He did our gorgeous wedding photos and just recently did our newborn photos. Our little one was very cranky during the session but Paul was able to work around it and captured some really beautiful photos! Paul is very friendly and genuine. He always makes us feel comfortable during our sessions since we are not "photo" people. We are so glad we found Paul and we love hi so much he is now our family photographer!! More...

Best decision I made was invest in my photographer! Paul and his wife were an awesome team and my pictures came out so great! My family also really enjoyed them and I was able to make a whole photobook just for my mother in law. The thing that actually sticks out the most is that not only did my pictures turn out beautifully but Paul actually stepped in to help my mom bussle my wedding dress before my first dance. He didn't have to do that at all but he stepped right in there and helped her figure it out, I was so appreciative of that! Its in the small details. Highly reccomend! More...

Paul took photos of my kids and I and they are FANTASTIC! So colorful and playful and vibrant; they really show my relationship with them and how we love each other so unspeakably much. I loved how willing he was not just to work around our goofiness, but to embrace it and portray that part of our lives in a fun and beautiful way, as well!! Thank you!! More...

We had a great experience working with Paul for our family photo session.

Photo quality and editing turned out great. I would highly recommend him! More...

Had a wonderful experience with Paul Douda Photography for a surprise wedding proposal! The bride to be was a little late showing up and this did not fluster Paul.

I was so fortunate to have found Paul Douda to photograph an event of the San Diego Association of Bridal Consultants. I had met him and seen his work on his website that was amazing. At our event he captured the feel of the event with lots of wonderful candids that showed the interaction and, he seemed magically, to get everyone's good side. He has a natural ability to capture communication and joy. Not only were the photos fabulous, but Paul has a gracious and charming personality, he was so easy going, friendly and personable, a true delight. Can you tell I am a fan? More...

When you are searching for a wedding photographer, typically the first thing you look for is quality. When it comes to documenting one of the biggest days of your life, you absolutely do not want to gamble with the quality of the images you will have to document that day. The next attribute you likely look for is cost. Most couples have a fairly strict budget to adhere to and cost is a significant factor when it comes to choosing a vendor. Paul meets (and exceeds!) the mark in regards to quality and he offers a number of packages to fit a variety of needs and budgets. I've worked with him both personally and professionally and he is such fun to work with. He has a gift when it comes to nervous and/or camera shy individuals and engages with every subject to ensure that he delivers the best images possible. I cannot recommend Paul enough for any photography need and can guarantee that it won't be a choice you'll regret. More...

Paul photographed one of the Chamber of Commerce's corporate mixers, and we loved working with him! His photos captured the spirit of the event in a fun and colorful way - we'll be using these photos for future promotions. Paul was great to work with - very communicative leading up to and during the event, and he got the photos to us in less than a week! We'd definitely recommend him to corporate partners and look forward to partnering with him in the future! More...

I just don’t have enough kind words to say about Paul! We were able to save enough money for a photographer and last minute tried our best to find an amazing, artistic and classy photographer. We were so blessed to find Paul and he did not hesitate to help us out even though we were incredibly last minute. We received so many comments from our guests about how much fun, professional and hard working he was! Every time I thought “this would be a great picture!”...he was already on it! I can’t thank you enough!!! Truly blessed and incredibly thankful for your hard work and commitment to giving us the BEST!

If there was an option to award Paul Douda Photography 1000 stars, we would! We simply can't say enough great things about Paul and Crystal! From our engagement session to our wedding, everything they did was perfect! We aren't just talking about their products, either. They are fantastic at what they do and it's complimented by their wonderful and kind personalities; the complete package! If I had only one word to describe our experience with Paul Douda Photography, it would be easy. Planning? Easy! Vibe? Easy! Getting along? Easy! Day-of? Easy! Above all else, the perfect pictures, the heartwarming video, the overall experience, the best part is the friendship we developed with Paul and Crystal. From the bottom of our hearts, we couldn't be happier. A million and one thank yous!! More...

We attended a wedding at Mt. Woodson Castle. The wedding was beautiful with the Castles grounds giving it a magical feel. The food was perfect !! The pictures hanging in the hallway, were so interesting to see the original castle. It is still very original & beautiful. The unique rock stairs are a problem. Two ladies fell. Be careful if you visit. Wear flat shoes. Otherwise, it's an absolutely gorgeous place. More...

Loved, Loved, Loved, working with Paul and Crystal! We actually hired Paul to do our vow renewal. My first photographer for our original wedding was horrible. I paid a ton of money to get crapy pictures :( Paul went above and beyond with awesome photos and he was so down to earth to work with. I would definitely hire him again! If you want a stress free wedding with great pictures to capture your story, He is the one. I Loved every single one of my photos!!! Wish I could do it all again :) More...

We met Paul at a Bridal Expo in 2012. We were impressed with his display photos, and the immaculate detail and creativity that had been captured. We hired him for an engagement photoshoot, and were pleased with the amount of time and dedication he gave, and the stunning quality of the photos we received. Paul has been our photographer since then for other shoots (wedding, maternity, and family). He has become more than just a photographer to us; he is also a friend. We value his work and friendship, and think highly of his talent. He is truly a wonderful person to work with, and that shines through, not just our photos, but other couples' photos we have seen in his work. Choosing Paul to capture our life moments has been one of the best decisions we have made, and we are so very thankful to him for the beautiful jobs he has done. More...

We booked Paul for our first family photos after he shot amazing photos of my sisters wedding and my brothers wedding! This was a huge family of 10 and he was beyond great. Because my siblings and I live far apart from each other, we were only together on one day and that was the Saturday after thanksgiving. Paul made it easy and convenient for us to book that exact day with a time and location of our choice! He arrived early to the location and secured the best spot for us since it was a popular photography destination. He made sure to get multiple creative shots of our individual families and worked great with my 2 kids (5 months and 4 years). We felt very comfortable and didn’t feel rushed. He got a preview of our pictures to us just a couple days after and the whole session just a week after that! Perfectly edited, amazing photos with some great candid shots mixed in. We will continue to use him for any professional photography in the future and I would highly recommend him More...

The food was very delicious and I enjoyed their choice of placement for the ceremony. This establishment is private, so be sure you call ahead. More...

Paul Douda was recommended to us by my good friend who is a wedding planner in San Diego. She really values Paul's work and so recommended we use him for a family photo shoot and we are absolutely thrilled with the results! We are from London, England and were visiting friends in San Diego and we asked Paul to capture this special time for us all.
Paul was capturing two families with 4 children in total ranging from 10 months to nearly 5, as well as two camera-shy fathers! He did a brilliant job in making everyone feel at ease straight away, including my 3 year old who really didn't want to have his photo taken. Within minutes my son was having a blast playing with Paul and in turn, Paul took the most beautiful photos of us all. He captured the essence of what we were looking for and we are delighted. I highly recommend Paul.

Paul is a gem! My husband and were absolutely thrilled to have him as part of our wedding day. He had a very cool/calm demeanor that really helped when things get a little stressful or off beat. We had multiple Skype calls before our wedding, so we got to know him pretty well before the wedding day and then he came to our rehearsal, as well:) He did his research on the venue, first look location, etc. and wanted to make sure he knew US so he could get photos that was embody who we are individually and as a married couple. I highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a photographer. He is also 6'3 (or taller) which is a great angle for photos - I am 6 feet and my hubby is 6'4, so we were thrilled about that. Also, we live in the bay area and got married in San Diego, so Paul was very helpful with recommendations in the area:) His process for payments is very fair and pricing is extremely reasonable. Overall, we had a lovely experience with Paul and highly recommend his services!! More...

Paul was the photographer for our daughter's wedding June 25. Words cannot describe how we felt about our experience with him. We couldn't be any happier. He is awesome. Very personable and professional at the same time. He did not interfere in any way. He worked and snapped constantly and got beautiful, lifetime memories for us all. He was very willing to take any picture we wanted. He was creative and fun at the same time. If anyone wants to talk to me personally about Paul , I'd be more than glad to chat with you. He is a 5 star photographer and guy as well. We love everything about that special day and his photographs. We hope to use him again when professional shots are needed. BEV More...

Paul was absolutely amazing and so flexible! My fiance had a vision and Paul was able to deliver!

I can’t say enough about Paul and his talented eye as a photographer. He truly is an artist. He perfectly captured our big day and we had a blast doing our shoot. One of the best pieces of advice I received was- pick a photographer you feel comfortable with and want to spend your wedding day with, because they are there every step of the way. For that reason, I am so glad we found Paul. From the moment we met him, it was as if we were old friends. His calming presence and sense of humor on our wedding day put my husband and I at ease. He knew exactly the shots to get and captured the love and joy of our big day so beautifully. The album Paul put together for us is unlike any I’ve seen. It is truly a work of art that we love to share with our family and friends. Paul Photography is well worth the investment!

Several of my friend's have used Paul for their weddings and various family photo shoots and the quality of his work is always stunning, so I knew I was in good hands with him with our holiday family photos. His work is unique, modern and magazine quality. I've seen him at many weddings and he is always working his booty off and the results show. He's also super nice and easy to work with to boot. Can't ask for more than that in a photographer! I would recommend him any day for any occasion. More...

Paul took our family photos this year and we'll definitely want to work with him again. The turn around time was quick and he got a lot of good photos in a short amount of time, which was great since we have a toddler. I'll refer him to family and friends. More...

I am a wedding Coordinator who has worked many years with many photographers. When our son was getting married Paul Douda was the first person I wanted to photograph my son and daughter in laws wedding. His eye for the perfect shot is amazing.

all my bride and grooms. All of them have been over the moon happy with the end result. Paul makes anything you want happen. He goes with the flow. He's such a amazing person who I have loved working with for all these years. We have become like family and I'm so grateful for his talent which has given us a life time of memories.

Paul took our family photos this year, and I'm glad he did. To start, he was oh so flexible with my hectic scheduling. He followed up, he was there when he said he would be and he scouted locations for us. Most importantly, he got great shots of our two little kids and dog. Oh, and his online contracting/payment system is super convenient and easy to use. A great value! More...

Paul is absolutely fantastic! He worked on my brothers engagement and wedding last year and came highly recommended by both him and his wife. From the moment that Paul and I came in contact he was highly professional and wonderfully personable. He remembered my husband and I from my brothers wedding and instantly became more excited to be able to work with our family again. From the moment he showed up on the day of the wedding he was excited and had so many visions for what he wanted to capture for us on our special day, that it made my husband and I more excited to see what our day had in store for us. From the beginning to the end of the night Paul was energenic and captured every moment perfectly for us. He never rushed and always stopped to make sure we were getting everything that we wanted. When we received our pictures after Paul was finished, we were besides ourselves, they were absolutely stunning!! Paul is exceptional at what he does and the personal relationships he developes with his clients shows in his work. He will definitely be apart of our next moment to be captured! More...

We love our pictures from Paul. He had lots of advice and tons of suggestions about what type of pictures we could do, but really took our personalities and visions in to account. We had a good mix of traditional portraits and candid pictures. We did both an engagement session and wedding pictures. More...

Paul was the perfect photographer for my wedding! We loved working with him before the event - he came to the venue for a visit and asked lots of questions to get to the heart of what we really wanted out of our photography experience. On our big day, he was confident and calm, which was contagious (and something I definitely needed!).

Our wedding photos were more beautiful than I could have imagined, and Paul captured the moments I want to relive again and again, like our "first look," dances with special people and the sunset moment where he got my husband and I to sneak away from the crowd. We liked working with Paul for our wedding so much that we recently invited him to shoot family photos with our new baby.

I wholeheartedly recommend Paul Douda Photography.

We used Paul back in 2011 for our engagement session.. And still very much cherish the photos and moments he captured. He got to know us and his photos really caught the essence of our relationship. He was flexible with where we shot, and had some good ideas that we hadn't thought of. He kept the conversation and the ideas/ variety of posing flowing the whole session. We opted to just have the photos given to us on a disk- they came in a decent amount of time, and were packaged really nicely. Needless to say, we loved Paul so much, we kept in touch and he has taken additional photos of our growing family: maternity sessions and ones with our son. We love the relationship that has been built and will continue to work with him in the future. I 150% recommend him! More...

Paul is awesome, would highly recommend! He has a clear vision and executes it perfectly. He is really good with big groups or bridal parties and strategically placing people in the right spot that balances perfectly in the picture. We gave him a list which he stuck to and followed and did so seamlessly to where I forgot he was even there throughout most of the wedding events but he captured everything we asked and more when we saw the pics.

Came here to scope out a place for a wedding venue, very pretty outside. The inside is a little dated and not great for small children (there are open stairs). Might have picked the place for an outdoor wedding, so if that's what you'd like make the drive out! More...

Paul Douda is an amazing photographer, has such a passion for capturing the most precious candid moments and is uber talented at editing/detailing photographs. He is super laid-back, intelligent, and has a fun-loving personality making it effortless and natural to work with him behind the camera! My husband and I hired him for our engagement, wedding, and recently our family photographs. We worked with him originally in April 2010 for our engagement session and he was exceptional and delivered exactly what we wanted. Our wedding was a Seaside wedding in October 2010 and he captivated each moment candidly, with an editorial style we hoped for. I LOVED the photographs!!! Four years later, he is still our photographer...recently (March 2014) he took our family photo session and we are so excited to see the end results! He offers a 'still in love' session that we are planning for this summer!!! He has such an amazingly talented eye for capturing THE perfect elements on camera...meet him today for your next event!!! Happy photo shopping More...

Working with Paul for our Engagement Session as well as our Wedding was the best experience with a photographer. He was able to capture those special moments while being creative with the surroundings bringing together a look and feel that is unique and memorable. Paul is a true artist when it comes to his vision of how a picture can say a thousand words just by brining together multiple elements to capture a moment with a couple that is amazing. We are forever grateful to Paul for making our day extra special and for creating lasting memories we can cherish for years to come. We highly recommend Paul Douda Photography to anyone that is looking for a personable touch and amazing one of a kind photos More...

Paul has been our photographer since 2009. He performed our engagement photo session, our wedding photography and our “Still In Love” session for our two year wedding anniversary. He was by far the easiest vendor I worked with while dealing with the stressful wedding planning. He is reliable, affordable and puts out amazing work! Paul has an infectious personality and is such a pleasure to work with. He made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera that my husband and I looked like professional models. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a stress free, easy going and fun experience. More...

Paul provided excellent wedding photography. He is very hard working, responds promptly and was very enjoyable to work with throughout the wedding process. While some of my ideas were quite far reaching, Paul worked with me to make my visions a reality. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my family, friends and any engaged couples I encounter in the future. More...
