"I recently used Prairie to Pacific Photography for my wedding and engagement photos. They did an amazing job! I am very picky and rarely like photos of myself. Picking a Photographer for such a big event was nerve-racking for me. I wanted beautiful, artistic and candid photos of our wedding and natural photos of my fiancé and myself to have at the reception. Paulette’s professionalism, organization and creativity was firmly established before our engagement photo shoot (the first time we met in person). She was quick to return calls and emails. She had great forms for us to fill out in advance of the wedding. The forms helped me think through exactly how I wanted the photos to look and who I wanted in them. She also sent the form a couple of months before the wedding date, when I actually had time to fill them out.
It was raining the week of our engagement photos. Right about the time I was starting to get nervous the rain wouldn’t stop, she emailed us a list of reasons our shoot would still be great and what her alternative options were. We had such a great time having our engagement photos taken and they came out great! By the time Paulette and her assistant arrived at the wedding, it was like greeting a guest and not a vendor. They were such a natural part of our wedding and I was surprised by how many photos they were able to get. It was really hard to pick out the 40-60 favorites for the album. I think I submitted 75 or more. I would highly recommend them for any type of event! They have great results and amazing customer service!"

"Using Prairie to Pacific Photography was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding! As soon as I met Paulette I knew that everything would be taken care of and I didn't have to worry about it. When planning a wedding, that is huge! When she came over to take getting-ready pictures I had a house full. She fit right in and felt like family. I anxiously waited to see the pictures and she had them done in just a couple of weeks. The photos we received were absolutely stunning. She perfectly captured my vision. Her style is soft, natural and real which was essential for my vintage and classic wedding. She captured everything I could have ever thought of. I am so glad we chose Paulette and will have the most perfect pictures to remember our big day!"

"Paulette Hughes of Prairie to Pacific has been a fantastic asset to our wedding planning. My wife Felisity and I have run into a few road blocks being a same sex couple in Southwest Missouri, one of which was noticing how people not only were inexperienced with shooting same sex couples, but their forms regularly read "Bride and Groom." Paulette was the very first vendor we worked with who took the time to write up a NEW contract that read, "Bride and Bride." I was so moved it brought tears to my eyes, and it sealed the deal for both me and my wife. She and her assistant Sa'dia made us feel at home immediately. Within moments over a cup of coffee, I felt like we were lifelong friends, and could genuinely see she not only loves her job, but sincerely cares about her clients. Her job is to capture the moments we are too blinded by love to see ourselves, and she does an exquisite job of bringing our love to life. I highly recommend Paulette for not only same-sex couples, but all couples, single ladies, boudoir shoots, and new baby/family photos. You will not be disappointed and her warm spirit and kind smile will make you feel right at home."

"Someone told me that one of the most important things was to have a great photographer. To be honest I hesitated at first, but I can truly say this was one of the best decisions I made. Thank you Paulette Hughes & Prairie to Pacific Photography for being the best photographer a bride could ask for."
