Lines look good in the patio/walk but your base looks less than desirable. I would put in at least a 6" base of heavily compacted run and crush (gravel with fines included) then angular concrete sand as per ICPI guidelines. Using a good quality geotextile fabric may also help reduce callbacks and settling.
New construction near houses is tough, I like to wait a year or 2 as the area around the house settles due to excavation usually about 3' away from all exterior walls. You may have some settling occur.
Looks as though there is no base product other than the screenings used for bedding. I would be worried with new construction settling even with geotextile fabric, proper base product/thickness, and bedding sand.....so for you to ignore aspects of the job I am worried you will get settling issues. Lucky for you it is only a small area. I do really like the variations of color in the pavers!!!

thanks for the feedback! dont be misguided by the how the base looks infront of the walk. there is a 8'' base compacted under the walk. i threw down what you see infront because the driveway has not gone in yet so i wanted a smooth transition to the walk.
