I grew up in Germany and moved to the US with my wife in 2008. My name is actually Paul von Schwarzenfeld (difficult to spell for non-German speakers, which is why I have translated it to Paul Blackfield for this website).
In 2009 I started to photograph conferences and corporate events on the East-Coast and loved the aspect of capturing fleeting moments while working in the epicenter of a one-time event. Later that year I photographed the wedding of a friend and decided that this is where I want to go. Fast forward 5 years, I have photographed over 150 weddings and 50 corporate events.
What I strive for is to create a candid documentation on the one hand, and on the other hand craft emotional touching and technical brilliant portraits. I often use natural light for photos but think that the use of portable lighting has it’s time and place to not limit my photos to a specific style or technique.
I have a liability and equipment insurance for professional photographers.
