Vice President for Community Relations / Vermont Land Trust

I recommend Paul E. Richardson as a professional photographer. Paul worked for our non-profit on an outdoor and barn photo shoot and we used his photos for the web, a fundraising case statement and with media relations. His work is aesthetically excellent and he is flexible and easy to work with. We receive many compliments on the pieces where his work appears. We look forward to using his photos and hiring him in the future.

My experience with Paul in January 2017 was amazing! Besides great shots of our event, he was very responsive, open and creative! He knows the best locations in Montpelier, and his sense of occasion helped us capture very special moments. We are very grateful that Paul was our photographer.

Trish Wolf Brubeck

/ Brubeck Brothers Quartet

It's not easy to catch the spirit of the band during soundcheck and to have each member of the quartet look good in a group photo, but Paul did both, with some amazingly beautiful backgrounds of the Vermont field and mountains. Paul has a great eye, and is very talented not only at shooting his subjects, but also at capturing the right light. I would not hesitate to use Paul's talents again and again.

Oh my gosh! AMAZING! I'm so psyched, you got Parker's essence! I have already been singing your praises to everyone and will continue to do so!

Mother / of a senior

Paul was great to work with. He was able to photograph my daughter in so many beautiful pictures, it was hard to choose which ones to get! I would highly recommend.

I really wish I could give him 10 stars. Paul is a true artist, his work is incredible and it truly shows. He is genuine and talented, he values the clients' needs and executes. I will continue to refer his services! Make sure to check out his portfolio, it speaks volumes!

Besides being smart, personable and humorous fellow, Paul knows a LOT about getting the right shot from the angles, the lighting, the color... honestly, it's FUN! I had him shoot a 'product' for me and we had a blast and the pictures are awesome. Can't wait to have another shoot!
