When we set out to find a photographer in Bora Bora, we were not hopeful that we would find a fine art film photographer in the French Polynesia. So when we did find Paulina Cadoret, we felt like we won the lottery! Paulina and Ossa are true storytellers and they find and evoke so much beauty in every shot. Through their imagination, our ordinary honeymoon shoot was turned into a tale of a modern romance between a princess and his prince – suddenly each image was brought to life with meaning and character. Prior to the shoot, they spent a lot of time helping us plan our outfits and moods for our photo session to make sure everything would be perfect and to our taste. They were always so professional and responsive in all our communication which really made them stand out from other photographers we enquired around the French Polynesia. So when we finally met them in Bora Bora, they felt like lifelong friends that we haven’t seen in years. We loved spending time with Paulina and Ossa and the photos we received went beyond what we expected. We would recommend to anyone who is looking for an artistic fine art eye photographer!
Oh My God! The picture are all amazing! I can't express how much we love those photos. Thank you for capturing such unique and timeless moments of fun, happiness, and love for us. It reminds me how exciting the time being at Bora Bora every time I see the photos. You are so passionate and professional about creating the perfect lighting. It was so refreshing! Not to mention how nice and easy you were to work with. I would recommend you to any of our friends! (Four Seasons Resort - Bora Bora)
We are a couple from Hong Kong and we had a fantastic experience with Paulina & Ossa! They were fun to work and it was a great pleasure to have them with us in our wedding. The wedding can only get better with such a joyful and resourceful photographer. She was always well prepared but also has an innate capacity in improvising. She has the ability to capture the precious moments and we will cherish all the lovely photographs they have taken for us!
Our photos are absolutely amazing! You're an amazing photographer! We can't thank you enough for coming out and helping us out with the photo shoot. As you would imagine it was very nerve wracking for the both of us and you really helped put us at ease.
My husband and I have celebrated our 10 years wedding anniversary. It was very important to document the celebration and have lifetime memories. We enjoyed our time with our amazing photographer and are very happy with the pictures!
We knew from the start that we wanted to have a photographer who could capture our wedding with an artistic fine art eye. Being that I come from the fine art business world and Jules is a keen art lover, we were looking for a truly special photographer. We knew we had found this when I discovered Paulina Cadoret and saw exactly the type of quality, emotion and artistry we were looking for in Paulina Cadoret’s photos. Both of us were so comfortable with Paulina and her husband Ossa, and together they managed to capture stunning shots of the whole day that lived up to our expectations and more.
