Thank you for visiting!

At Illume by Paul Reynolds, my work is driven by my excitement for life, my love of shared experiences, and my wonderment at the world we live in. The unique couples I have the opportunity to work with drive my passion for capturing incredible love stories and I believe that these forces are reflected in the quality of my work & the long-term joy couples feel from their captured moments.




"Using Paul was one of the best decisions we made (besides getting engaged haha)! He was the utmost professional throughout the entire planning process, easily accessible and communicative, and listened to all our photo dreams and stylistic ideas. On the actual day he and his amazing team showed up right on time and were present throughout the day while somehow managing to be almost invisible! He nailed all the shots and we are so incredibly pleased with the results. We wanted pictures that felt timeless, natural, and wanted our photos to look like "us." Honestly we could not recommend his services more. Also he just happens to be a very nice guy!"

"Paul Reynolds is an absolute wedding industry phenom. Yes, he's a photographer - but more than that, he'll be someone you'll want to add to your family. Brilliant to work with from start to finish. Gorgeous work, the best quality photographs, super fun to have around mingling with your friends and family on the wedding day itself- He's a keeper!"

-Emily & Ben


"I cannot say enough great things about Paul - he is absolutely amazing!!! I first met him when he photographed my sister's wedding in 2015, her photos were BEYOND gorgeous, and I knew we had to have him for our wedding as well! I cannot even TELL you how many compliments I've gotten on both mine and my sister's wedding photos. Over and over we've heard they're the most gorgeous photos someone has ever seen."

-Katie & Patrick


"Hiring Paul was one of the best decisions we made. He is incredibly kind, talented and passionate about his work. I loved that we barely even noticed him during the ceremony, which was important to us. All our guests remarked on how much they liked him too! And our photos could not be more gorgeous. They truly capture the spirit of the day. I wholeheartedly recommend working with Paul -- you won't regret it!"

-Elizabeth & Emilio


"Groom here! I am not one to wrote reviews, this actually might be my first ever. But I have to say that Paul was absolutely amazing! Paul was amazing when it came to capturing some beautiful photos, he took my wife and I on top of a mountain in Vermont and got some absolutely GORGEOUS photos! Usually at a wedding the food and music is what stands out, on our wedding day it wad the photographer that everyone was talking about!"

"Paul is an absolute GEM! He was by fair our best vendor. As my husband said after our first meeting, "I just want to grab a beer with the guy." Paul was so easy to get along with and just "got" us-- it felt like we had known him forever. His schedule is packed (for obvious reasons), so if you can get him, book him ASAP!"
