About Paul

Calgary based Wedding Photographer Paul McGrath specializes in bringing the best out in the people he gets to works with. Paul focuses on the moments and emotions of the day as they happen. Paul has travelled the world chasing light and chasing moments with his couples. 

Before his career as a photographer, Paul worked as a model both locally and internationally. He draws on his experience as a model and working with so many photographers to help lead his couples into moments that may not know are coming and how to keep the feeling very natural behind each image. Paul has an intrinsic ability to make people feel comfortable in any situation, especially in front of the camera.

"Photography is not work, it is what I love to do. I love spending the day with my couples with the idea that 25 years down the road they will not only be able to look at the moments I was able to capture for them, but relive the feelings they had behind each image. Being a photographer for me is 90% about being a people person and 10% about knowing when to pull the trigger."

Paul has photographed over 500 weddings world wide in his 15 year career in the industry and made life long friends along the way.
