Loved this man! He did such a great job. He was so much fun to work with. My wedding party, who all are married already, stated that they all wished they would've had him as their photographer. He is so easy to work with. He is loads of fun! We all could not stop laughing.

My husband and I were married on February 1 and had our photography done by Paul. We received our photos a week after our wedding and were blown away with how beautiful they were! You can tell that Paul and his partner Cheri are very accustomed to the fast paced nature of a wedding day. Paul helped us stay on track and on time throughout the day. He has his couples fill out a photography checklist so that he is sure to get all of the photos you are hoping for and he sticks to it! He and Cheri were so much fun to hang out with all day! Paul also took our engagement photos, and we met multiple times throughout wedding planning to make sure he had all of the information he needed to capture our wedding day. We felt so taken care of by Paul. We didn’t have a set vision for any of our photographs, and Paul helped us brainstorm ideas that we ended up loving! Photographs are so important in helping you remember your wedding day, and Paul and Cheri truly captured our entire day beautifully! We are so grateful to have these photos to cherish for years.

Paul photographed our engagement shoot and New Years Eve wedding. On both occasions he was patient and rolled with all of our crazy requests - from showing up for engagement photos with our dog and not giving him the heads up to following us around to our favorite bars and shooting candid shots of our loved ones on the wedding day. My absolute favorite thing about Paul is that he's incredibly fast. My husband had limited patience for posed photos on the wedding day and Paul worked with whatever time we gave him. He shoots so many photos in quick succession that he doesn't even give you time to get to the forced fake smiles. As a bride who's never felt photogenic, he captured so many intimate moments, genuine laughter, and documented the love in the room all while making me look and feel beautiful. We're so glad we chose to go with Paul as our wedding photographer!

Absolutely STUNNING pictures for an excellent price. Paul was incredible to work with, made the day flow so nicely! I never felt behind or stressed whatsoever. We got our images back 1 week after our wedding. Looking forward to hiring Paul for all of our future photo needs!

Paul Was the Best Choice I Made for my Wedding
Paul D. Manke Photography was THE best choice I made during my wedding adventures. When I saw his work at the wedding show in Green Bay, my mom and I instantly knew that we wanted him to do my wedding pictures. After he took my engagement photos in Sturgeon Bay, I was blown away. The pictures looked like they were from a magazine and I couldn't believe it was me in those beautiful pictures. From that day, I had all my trust in Paul and knew that I no longer had to worry about capturing my wedding day through photos. I knew that Paul would give 100% to make sure I got the pictures I had always dreamed of. When my wedding day arrived, Paul was there for me ALL day. He went above and beyond to make sure my day was perfect from making sure my hair was perfect to making sure the church was set up right for the pictures, to making sure we got took the pictures during the right time of day for best lightening to walking through sand and water to get the very best picture to fixing my dress over and over again to stopping traffic on a busy road to making me and my husband laugh and smile at each other all day. Today, I now look at breathless and timeless pictures taken by Paul in my house of my wedding day. They bring a smile to my face every time I see them and bring me back the happiness I felt on that day. Paul was such more than just a photographer, but someone who made sure to capture my day so I can remember the way I felt on my wedding day for the rest of my life. If you want one less worry during your wedding day, please consider Paul. I promise you it will be the best decision you make for your wedding!
