Photography by Paquette | Reviews

A few words from our clients...


Mary and Scott did did a fantastic job capturing the beauty and romance of our wedding in Petoskey, MI. Mary took the time to get to know us which made us so much more comfortable with them doing our photographs. Their attention to detail and ability to understand our vision make them a must for wedding photography. Would highly recommend this awesome duo! ~ Lauren & Phil, Berkley, MI


I honestly can not even put into words how absolutely wonderful Mary and Scott are. They were my first and only choice for our wedding this past September. I actually called them to see what their availability was before I booked a venue! And I am so glad I did!!! Not only are their photos amazing but their professionalism is as well. They blended in with all our guest and most of the guest even mentioned never seeing the photographers all night. We also had a formal wedding and they were dressed to blend in and looked professional. Of my 1250 photos. There isn't one photo I could say I don't like. My Husband and I were so truly blessed to have both of them as a part of our day! We have memories for a lifetime thanks to all the beautiful moments they both captured!! I cannot thank them enough!! ~ Catherine & Joe, Mackinac Island, MI


Beautiful five star work!! 
We'd loved everything about Mary's work. The quality and the professionalism was at its best. She went above and beyond to make sure our senior felt comfortable and relaxed during her session. With so many great ideas and destinations our senior photo session was perfect! Thank you again Mary, we are very happy! ~ Kristina, Freeland, MI

"I have had many, many photo shoots of my family and 3 (now grown) children over the past 25 years, never have I had such a wonderful experience nor have we received such high quality photos that completely reflect Mary's professionalism, experience and dedication to capturing the perfect moment. She went well above, and beyond, her duties and our expectations.... and my daughter's wedding photo's are the true testimony of the absolutely wonderful creativity and work Mary put into the photo shoot. We cannot begin to thank her enough and will forever cherish the portraits she created for us. The satin float mount photo's and the book were on display -- the guests were in awe of your beautiful work and how gorgeous they both looked. I very highly recommend Photography by Paquette!" ~ Kay, Fraser, MI

"5 stars is not enough to express the incredible quality of our overall experience with Mary and Scott Paquette!  This past weekend, my husband and I got married and I wouldn't have considered using anyone else's services, but Photography by Paquette for our special day, because it's people like Mary and Scott who go above and beyond the obligations of the job, who capture more than just concepts or fulfilling the status quo of wedding moments.  The Paquette's are brilliant artists, to whom I will be forever grateful to, because they have gifted me, and my family, with the life long gift of a day's most precious moments preserved in impeccable images.  

Not only do the Paquettes treat their clients with respect, kindness, and understanding, they treat them like family and that is what I value most when I entrust someone with such a vital job.

My husband and I are now excited to start our live together, and we KNOW that we will be looking to Photography by Paquette in the future to take our family photos, baby pictures, and any other important life event, because they are truly the best!!" ~Kelly, Petoskey, MI


"Mary and Scott are absolutely fantastic!! They shot our engagement and wedding photos and every single person has said that they are amazing.  Mary is just so sweet and was like my second mom on my wedding day looking out for my best interests-made sure I looked okay and that everything was going according to the planned itinerary.  She takes the time to set up the shot so it is perfect and pays attention to detail.  I cannot rave about Photography by Paquette enough, we just love our photos." ~ Katie B., Ohio

"Mary, I love the pictures!!! They are beautiful! Thank you so much! I was showing the pictures to a friend, and the one I chose that is black and white made her cry.  She said it just made her feel all of the years she has known (our daughter) and what a beautiful young woman she has become! She wondered why the black and white photo evoked that emotion from her--and I thought it was the combination of the black and white and her smile in that photo. Anyway, I love it too!" - Debbie, Harbor Springs, MI

"I just want to thank you so much for making it such a fun and memorable evening with your talent both as a photographer and as a caring person.  I think these seniors feel under a lot of pressure with everyone asking them where they're going to college, what they're going to do, and when they're going to get their braces off!  Laura was in a wonderful mood afterwards and had so much fun.  I thank you that you make it such an interactive and encouraging experience for the seniors, and make them feel happy about their photo shoot.  Thank you so much!" - Kathy M., Petoskey, MI
