About me

Paul Barte'ls

 Paul is an award winning professional wedding photographer servicing the city of Temecula and other neighboring communities. I have a BA degree in photography. I have completed hundreds of weddings. Paul’s work is most often described as modern, stunning, amazing, creative and wildly romantic.  
 Paul loves to incorporate natural light when photographing a beautiful couple on their wedding day. With bursts of sun flare, back lighting, and dramatic shadowing, Paul takes advantage of the beauty of natural sunlight to produce stunning Temecula wedding photography that a bride and groom are sure to love.
 Paul believes that capturing the small details of a couple’s wedding day is of utmost importance. I give guidance and direction during the photo session on your wedding day. Paul not only documents the beautiful decor, wedding attire and floral arrangements, but he also pays attention to the special moments and interactions that take place.


 A wedding is one of the most emotional times in a person's life. It's my goal to create images that will always be able to transport a couple back to that moment, whether that's a week or thirty years later. The wedding only happens once, so the images need to allow them to experience it again and again. I'm documenting not just what the day looked like, but how the couple felt during their wedding. I'm looking for images that will bring back all of the emotions of a wedding day every time.    
To make your wedding day less stressful, put the job of capturing all of the joy, beauty, and romance of your day on me. I’ll be sure to capture your special connection and leave you with memories to last a lifetime. I keep my prices very affordable. If you have Questions?    
Working as a professional wedding photographer is a wonderful experience. I love my job! Most people can't say this. I enjoy photographing couples in this beautiful Southern California setting. Many couples choose to have Temecula winery weddings. I recommend this location for your wedding if you love wine and country-like landscapes. Wilson Creek Winery is one of the local wineries where you can get married. It’s a beautiful location with a romantic and peaceful ambience. ​

We believe the best photos are created within the context of a story - your story! We take the time to understand who you and your partner are and your journey towards falling in love so that we can make images that represent you! Your good sides, the way you hide your head in his chest, and all unique ways that make you perfect for one another.
Nearly every couple shares this worry before their session and we always end up having a great time. It's our job to make you feel like yourselves and we have a ton of experience to do just that! We will give you all the guidance you need as a unique couple and the space to reflect when you need it most.
 Wedding photography is worth every investment. It is the only thing you will take home out of all the money you’ll be spending. The beautiful flowers, food, venue, and the rest are only good for the day of the wedding. You may have the most beautiful wedding and have spent tons of money on it but if you have the wrong photographer that couldn’t give justice to its beauty. It will be a waste.
When you consider us as your wedding photographer, you're inviting more than just people with cameras. You're hiring us for our perspective; not just our decades of leaning into our own marriage and our experience shooting weddings, but our journey as humans who have laughed with Parisians, wept over lost loved ones, brought children into the world, and who have lead a life closely connected to love. It's these experiences that have given us a perspective that allows us to be acutely aware of the importance of a wedding day and the once-in-a-lifetime moments, toasts, hugs, and embraces from family members you may never see again.

Put the right amount of investment on your photography budget, meet your photographers in person or with us for a consultation, look at our portfolio, ask how many years of experience we have and how many weddings we’ve done. Invest on experience and skill set. Experience comes with a price, but like what I said above, it will give justice to the beauty of your wedding – it will be worth every penny. Those beautifully captured photos will be the only tangible memorabilia you will have by the end of the day. You’ll want someone who can give justice on how beautiful your wedding is, so you can look back, remember your big day, and fall in love all over again.
“A budget wedding can look majestic with the right photographer but even the grandest wedding can look cheap with the wrong photographer.”
