Today we’d like to introduce you to Paige Hill.
Paige, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
When I was 16, I received my first paycheck from my first real job, and my grandpa told me to invest it into something that is going to last a very long time. I purchased a 35mm Film Camera and that kicked my passion for photography into gear. I began taking Black and White Film Photography classes in High School and College. I eventually got a job working at a Local Portrait Studio and worked there for almost five years.
This is where I learned about posing and how important client interaction is. I literally only had 20 minutes for each appointment to make adults and children smile and get several different photographs. I graduated from the Art Institute of California San Diego in 2012. After graduation, I left my portrait studio job and invested in high-end camera gear and began my business in Lifestyle Wedding Photography called Forever Young Photography By Paige.
In 2017, I married my Best Friend and rebranded my business into Paige Hill Photography. Getting married gave me a greater appreciation for wedding photography, which has translated into honing in on perfecting my style and craft. But if I can be 100% completely honest, what I love most about what I do is I get to serve my community.
I get to meet so many amazing couples, families, and vendors and share my passion with the world around me.
Has it been a smooth road?
I wish I could say that being an entrepreneur is full of Sunshine and Rainbows, but there have been many bumps along the way, and I fully anticipate many more to come. But the joy I get out of running my own business and sharing my passion with the world around me is worth every bump and major pothole in the road. 😉
One of the biggest struggles has been learning how to balance my work life and personal life. This made me focus on how to improve my turn around time for editing photographs, staying on top of emails, and managing every other aspect of my business so that way I can spend as much time as possible with my husband and our sweet puppy dog!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Paige Hill Photography – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I specialize in Southern California Wedding & Lifestyle Photography. My biggest joy in life is capturing True Love in all the pretty natural light that I can find! I am blessed to say that I have been picked by our Brides as The Knot’s Best of Weddings in San Diego for 2016, 2017, & 2018!
For me, photography is much more than good lighting, fun posing, and professional editing. It is about creating one of a kind experiences capturing joyful and authentic photographs of your most cherished milestones.
These photographs are going to be shared for many generations to come and my goal is for these photographs to serve as a reminder of those amazing feelings you had in those moments. I love that I can say I stay in contact with most if not all of my clients over the years! I truly love what I do!
