Hi, I'm Paulette. I grew up in the Midwest, but love for the open road and being inspired by new places led me to California, where I reside with three cats, one snake, a teenage daughter, and my husband. I'm a dedicated coffee fiend, I take Siri way too literally, and I can't decide if I like Free People more than J. Crew. If any of that sounds familiar, you just may have found the right photographer!

I care about building relationships with my clients and having new adventures with people who truly enjoy the creative process. I'd love to get to know you, so let's chat! 




For me, it's all about the moments - even the slightly messy, imperfect ones. I'm not looking for perfection, I'm just looking at how perfectly human you are. I love working with people who aren't afraid to let me into those moments.

I believe in delivering a quality, specialized experience to couples who value the art of photography. For that reason, I focus only on weddings and engagements. I am a 2016 Knot Best of Weddings Winner, Wedding Wire Rated, and I was recently awarded with being one of the top 20 Wedding Photographers by Expertise. These honors can only be achieved by having exemplary customer service and above average reviews. 

For examples of recent work, please visit my BLOG and my PORTFOLIO


My wedding collections begin at $2750 for 8 hours of coverage with two photographers, and I limit my bookings to 15-20 weddings a year. I am also available for destination weddings and elopements within the United States. (Ask me about customized on-location pricing)

I am now actively booking 2018. Please contact me via my CONTACT FORM or by email: info@prairietopacific.com and I will respond promptly with my availability.
