Paul Manoian Photography has been voted Best Portrait Photography in Detroit for 2009!
I am completely overwhelmed right now as this has been such an amazing experience. It’s one thing for my clients to say I’m the best photographer, but to actually be voted the Best Photographer is a completely different experience!Â I am so thankful that I was nominated for Best Portrait Photography let alone be voted #1!
Thank you!Â THANK YOU!!
For me, as a professional photographer in Michigan, the best part has been reading the comments and recommendations from my wonderful clients!Â Here’s what a few of them have had to say:
I’ve worked with a number of photographers before, and I’ve never seen anyone work so adeptly with lighting, texture, and creative composition as Paul does. He’s amazing with his subjects, puts them immediately at ease, and that comfort translates incredibly well into his portraits. His portfolio is the best I’ve ever seen, and he’s a young photographer, commercially-speaking. Paul has an incredibly bright future; his raw talent is more than obvious.Â — J.V.
Paul is very technically talented, but is also incredible with children. He was consistently calm, patient and engaging even when my children became distant and unresponsive. He was able to pull their interest back to the photography session with his humor and kindness.Â Â The photographs are beautiful and capture my children’s individual personalities perfectly.Â — K.M.
Paul gets amazing, candid, images that show off the personality of each person perfectly!Â — J.P.
Paul took pictures of my 3 year old triplets – he did a fantastic job. He picked a good setting, and we can’t be happier. Getting three 3 year olds to do anything is a feat – but to get some great pictures of them, showing their “natural” smiles was wonderful.Â — E.R.
Paul is very talented and hard working. He is always trying to find the right shot for the right child. He is very patient and cares very much about the people he is photographing.Â — C.M.
He is a true artist. When you see his final product, you can instantly tell they were taken by a professional. His prices are very reasonable and he has a great website. I have and will continue to recommend Paul to friends and family.Â — P.J.
He has a way of capturing children in a way that almost allows you to see what they’re thinking. His poses are creative and his ability to capture the subject(s) at just the right moment is truly a gift!Â G.T.
He is a wonderful photographer. Took fantastic pictures of our engagement and outdoor wedding. It was wonderful how he captured just the right moments and helped make our day perfect. Thank you. You will be our photographer for life. Thanks!Â — P.R.
