Whether photographing properties, products, or other commercial projects, Chris Paulis Photography utilizes only the best professional equipment: full-frame Canon1D series camera bodies, wide-angle tilt-shift lenses, and other specialty L-Series lenses; and remotely fired off-camera flash to control lighting across the entire image. Whether you are a realtor looking to upgrade your listings, an interior decorator seeking images for your portfolio, or a manufacturer ordering product images, Chris Paulis Photography can get the job done.

Bar Mitzvah Portrait

At Chris Paulis Photography, we love to capture the emotion and drama of your important occasions: Weddings, Mitzvahs, anniversary parties, engagement parties, birthdays, and even showers! Our style is journalistic (informal, life caught in the act!) over formal. It’s not that we don’t like posed shots; it’s that we love lighting and capturing the real emotions of the day.

We also offer photography for corporate events.
