I had Paul Murphy take pictures of both my daughters on seperate occasions. Paul was so nice and friendly, it took no time at all for my daughters to feel at ease and comfortable having their pictures taken, in fact they enjoyed it! The pictures turned out wonderful and I can’t wait to show them to my family and friends. I absolutely recommend Paul and would hire him again!

Just finished up a boudoir session with Paul and Tawnya. I haven’t seen the photos yet but Paul and Tawnya were great to work with- professional but relaxed and helped me to feel super comfortable and I had a great time. Paul’s direction was clear and very helpful. I also loved Tawnya’s assistance and input with aesthetics and wardrobe. I’m hoping to update this to 5 stars after I receive the photos!

I had boudoir photos taken by Paul was very pleased with his ability to pose and light me in a flattering. Tawnya was extremely skillful and patient in helping me with various props and wardrobe changes. Overall I was happy with the results, although I would recommend you pay close attention to what is available in retouching and printing options and the costs. Some of the retouching was less than hoped for.

Beautiful pictures, and fun to work with!
We chose Paul as our wedding photographer on the recommendation of our wedding venue, The Lodge at Sonoma Rennaisance Resort & Spa, after only one phone conversation with him. We liked Paul from the moment we met him for our engagement session. He was relaxed, fun, and provided good direction on poses for the best possible pictures. The quality of the digital images and prints we ordered were outstanding.
As our wedding day approached, we completed all of our communications about how the day would flow via email, which I strongly prefer to phone conversations. Paul was flexible and responsive to our desires. We told Paul we wanted to get good pictures, but didn’t want the photography to be the focus of our day. On the day of the wedding, he was prompt, organized and efficient to capture all of the photos we wanted in a short period of time. And he was fun and funny in the process! During our reception, Paul was largely invisible to us (per our request) but somehow always seemed to be handy when we wanted to capture a particular group or moment.
I requested quick turn around on a photo to include on our Christmas card, and he chose one for us and sent it right away. The full set of our digital images followed quickly. There are hundreds of great pictures – I don’t know how we’ll choose a reasonable number for our album!
Thank you, Paul, for helping to make our wedding day perfect and for capturing our very special memories!

I live in Hawaii so I hardly see my nephew. Every chance I get, I put him in front of a camera so I can add his new pictures to my excessive collection. While looking for the right photographer who wouldn’t charge an arm and leg for outdoor shoots, I stumbled across a Groupon deal that was too good to pass up.
My initial communication with Paul Murphy was through email. He was very responsive through all forms of contact. During the session, Paul was creative and extremely talented in making a 2 year old cooperate. He captured the best looks, poses and candid moments. My nephew looked quite entertained in some of the pictures. The print quality and digital images were amazing. I was completely happy with the results!

We have just had family pictures taken by Paul Murphy. First, let me say that the reason we found Paul was to re-take family pictures by a different photographer that turned out horrible…..so we were hoping that Paul would provide us with the family picture that we dreamed of having. After viewing our proofs, not only did he go over-the-top on our family portrait, he was also able to capture some phenominal shots of just our kids and some playful pictures of my husband & I alone. I was most impressed by the creativity of picture “poses” that he arranged us in…..we were standing in a line, laying down on the ground, kneeling, sitting on logs/rocks, standing in a field, and even some shots from behind us to capture our silhouettes! We were very, very pleased with the results & cannot wait to enjoy these pictures in our home. Last, Paul is the perfect balance of professionalism….and yet…. so down-to-earth that you want to invite him over for supper! We cannot recommend him highly enough…..thank you, Paul!!!!

I booked our session through Groupon and was impressed by the photographs we saw, BUT, there is little that could have prepared me for the photo session.
To start, Paul took a few minutes to get a feel for what we wanted from the session and asked several key questions. When we started, I could tell he had a direction with the photos and could really tell he knew what he was doing.
Paul has so much energy and so professional, the photo session was great.
The photos, I thought they would be good. I thought that some would be ok. When we saw the gallery, we got our confirmation that Paul is an artist. There are so many amazing photos and so few that are just ok.
The bottom line, I will recommend Paul to everyone.
I am so happy, so amazed and so please with everything. From the initial conversation, to receiving our photo order, Paul and his staff deserves ten stars!

We were very impressed with his professionalism. He did great helping to get my nephew to smile and laugh for the camera. For a groupon deal, there are many prints to choose from. It is nice that customer satisfaction is a priority to him. I would recommend Paul Murphy Photography to my friends and family.

Besides the quality photography, it was such a pleasure to work with these guys! I can’t stress enough how happy my wife and I are with Pauls and Tawnya’s work and then to have such fun personalities gave our wedding confidence and a taste of success far before and long after the event itself.
We went back for kid photos!!
I’m a photographer myself and I chose Paul Murphy Photography. I sugest him to all my friends and family for any event.
Good as it gets!

Paul is a great photographer! I did maternity pics outdoors & they turned out beautiful! He did such a great job that I couldn’t decide which photographs to purchase.
I accidentally added the wrong photographs to my cart & so I was disappointed when the pictures arrived. (they arrived fast by the way) anywhoo, I sent over an email explaining to him what happened & he fixed it in an instant! Now that’s customer service!!

Paul is very professional, fun, and casual, which makes for a good combination of qualities in photographers. Paul captures the best moments in people’s expressions. We definitely recommend everyone to work with Paul.

Paul has photographed both my children since they were born and we come to him every year for Halloween, Christmas, Family Pictures and of course the kids pictures every year. He works so well with kids and takes his time. He makes everyone feel comfortable and waits for just the right moment. The pictures always come out beautiful and the customer service can”t be beat. I highly recommend him for any event you might need photography for.
