WOW! Paul is so amazing! His work is out of this world beautiful and his personality is just as wonderful! I feel like we've known Paul forever now just based on how he interacts with us and our guests at any of our events.
Choosing Aperina Studios was one of the best decisions I could have made when it came to planning my wedding. I had total faith and trust in Paul and Vitaliy to do an amazing job, and I was never stressed when it came to photography and cinematography. I absolutely loved working with them.
Thank you for capturing our best day in the best way. Our photos were the best gift we received.
"If you want a photographer who knows what's up, talented, responsible, punctual, who will treat you like a million bucks and make you look like a billion, go with Paul! This is the man who is a true leader in photography business."
"They met and exceeded all expectations from basic things like making me pose and smile to just being a super fun and pleasant wedding guests who we actually had fun with!"
Aperina Studios works best when we work together as a wedding videography and a wedding photography team. Additionally, you can save up to $200 on each service when booking both. Find out more about our wedding videography.
There are so many wedding photographers out there so what makes Aperina Studios special? It is me. You will always have me, Paul, my personality and my passion with you at all times. From the minute you invite me into your world, I become a part of your family and start telling your love story from within. I have been known more as a ‘friendor’ during weddings than just a vendor. My passion to tell your story will truly be reflected in everything I do.
Being a great wedding photographer not only requires scouting for the perfect moment, but also calculating the perfect angle of the lens and at the same time making sure the light is at the correct intensity to get that perfect shot. Constantly educating myself on new technology and creative lighting techniques keeps me in the best shape to face any challenges that may come up during a wedding and make sure that the photos I take are of the best quality.
The final touches to each photo are applied in editing when I make sure each photo is the best it can be. I am never satisfied with good work. I desire to make every wedding album better than the last one. I don’t use an express batch editing technique for post-processing photos but instead treat every wedding as a unique creative project. My goal is that when a couple looks at their wedding photos, they don’t only see the colors and shapes but also feel the love and joy that they felt during their wedding day.
Your wedding happens once – and I am ready to capture it perfectly. A memory for a lifetime shouldn’t be a hard choice. I am 100% confident that I can capture wedding photos that will bring tears to your eyes in awe of the preserved memories.
* Key areas we target: Sacramento, Bay Area, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, & Napa (pretty much all of Northern California). We’ve been blessed to travel to destination weddings all over the United States, Caribbean Islands and Dominica Republic to capture stories of lovely couples.
