I am Paul, a husband, father, and photographer serving the east coast NY, NJ, tri-state area, and available for travel worldwide. I have a joy and enthusiasm for life, love, and marriage. I love creating beautiful photos and capturing moments and memories but more importantly I love to photograph weddings and engagements because I love marriage and the love it signifies.

I believe your wedding and engagement photography should be as beautiful as the emotions they capture. The photos I take are light & airy, soft & natural, intimate & candid. The experience is relaxed, carefree, and romantic. I am committed to providing beautiful photos and a beautiful experience to our couples, while helping them to be fully present to one another during our time together. I value each of my couples and how they inspire me in my own marriage.

Wedding collections start at $4200 with collections that include an album starting at $5000. Any products you may wish to choose such as albums and canvas prints, can be added upon request. I would love to set up a time to meet with you and your fiancé at my studio and hear more about your wedding and what you are looking for.

I work together with each couple before the wedding to create the perfect wedding day schedule, shot lists, and timeline. I keep the time, mind the shot lists and schedule so that you do not have to, but instead are free to fully enjoy your wedding day stress-free. I strive to make your wedding experience, from the planning to the big day and beyond, the most blessed experience.

There are honestly so many positive things to say about Paul that I do not know where to start. I had originally viewed Paul's work from someone I had attended high school with and instantly fell in love with his talent. Paul's breathtaking photos were exactly the look I was going for and as soon as I got engaged I called him right away. From the very first meeting Paul was professional, down to Earth, and made us feel incredibly comfortable. These qualities were only enhanced during our engagement shoot; so much, in fact, that my fiancé who initially told me on our way to the shoot that he didn't know what to expect left the day with a smile beaming, saying how awesome it was! Those photos came out BEAUTIFUL and truly captured our love and excitement for each other. Throughout the time of my engagement Paul made me feel at ease and confident each step of the way. Then, our wedding day came and Paul, his assistant, and our second shooter honestly fully exceeded our already high expectations. By this point I was so excited for my wedding and our pictures and Paul equally shared in our excitement! He showed me pictures as we went which just boosted my excitement higher and he truly made my girls and I feel (and look of course!) stunning. Paul was so efficient in taking all of our photos, and, as always, creating a comfort between us all the entire time. He knew what was important to us and was sure to capture everything we were looking for throughout the night. In the middle of the night there were already pictures being played on a slideshow and we were given unedited, same day photos in an album before we left! My husband and I cannot stop looking at the amazing photos! Working with Paul was honestly the most wonderful experience and now we have gained a friend! In short, I HIGHLY recommend using Paul, his work speaks for itself and he will create an everlasting experience for you. Not just an out of this world photographer but also a great person! Simply the best!

I highlight recommend using Paul for your wedding (and engagement) photos! We are so happy with our pictures and everyone we show them to always comments on the quality of the photographs. What I love most about Paul’s work is that he really knows how to get the best out of every picture. Paul is an expert when it comes to lighting and photography and it really shows in the pictures. I don’t know much about photography, but what I do know is that Paul’s pictures stand out and you can tell instantaneously that the quality of the photos are exceptional. Not only does Paul take great pictures, but he is such a nice person and extremely organized. I didn’t realize the important role that scheduling plays in your wedding day, but Paul made it his priority to ensure everything ran according to plan and on time. This is really important because as a result, my husband and I didn’t have to rush through our couples pictures and were still able to enjoy every bit of the wedding since the pictures were done so efficiently. Paul really cares about his clients and he will work with you in detail weeks prior to your wedding day to ensure all your needs and requests are met. I highly recommend using Paul for your big day – your pictures are so important in keeping the memory of wedding day alive and Paul did a great job not only capturing our day, but producing beautiful photographs!

My husband and I found Paul through a google search for local photographers in the Summit, NJ area and a recommendation from a friend. We could not be happier with our decision. Paul is personable and passionate about his work. He dedicates himself and his time to his making sure he captures the essence of your day. He was extremely professional and always made us 100% confident that the final product would be perfect. He insured the pictures taken were the pictures we wanted not what your family or guests dictated. He has amazing insight and artistic eye to catch the perfect candid moments depicting you and your loved ones personalities. He met with us several times prior to the wedding to finalize details for us and make sure the day would run smoothly. At times, he was our backup wedding planner to keep things moving according to schedule. My husband and I greatly appreciated his professionalism, organization and flexibility. Paul was also great at working with us from a distance as we live in Washington state. He would set up meetings later in the evening to accommodate our work schedules and time difference. Most importantly, the end produce is PHENOMENAL! Our pictures are absolutely top notch. Paul was efficient in getting our pictures back to us as well, the fastest I've seen! I have looked at them at least a hundred times since we have them. Our family and friends cannot stop raving about the quality. We were able to instantly view some preview pictures the same day. Paul has an eye that truly captures the emotions of the day. We could not speak more highly of the quality of pictures Paul and his team produced. His customer service is top notch. You will not be disappointed with selecting Paul as your photographer. There are not enough praises we could give him. We are extremely appreciative of his passion, personality and outstanding photographs.

Paul made the wedding photography experience personalized from the beginning. He works to get to know a couple well. He communicated often and was always timely with answers. He was more than accomodating with all of my wedding day requests and went out of his way to prepare and confirm all the details with me. I also had my wedding album within 2 months of my wedding, and would have been sooner if I hadn't taken so long to choose photos! His photography is amazing. My guests were so impressed with the same day preview he had running at the reception. He also presented us with a small photo album the NIGHT of our wedding so that we had something to show people until our big album was made. Paul and his team truly love good love stories and love documenting through pictures. The many thoughtful things he did for us along the way were so wonderful and appreciated. Do not hesitate to have him be your photographer!

Working with Paul and his team was simply amazing! When we initially met with him at his office, he was very welcoming and clearly described his photography style and approach to weddings. Once we discussed what we wanted in a photographer and what kind of styles we were draw to, it was clear that Paul understood exactly what we were looking for. In the weeks and months leading up to the wedding, Paul was in continual contact with us; helping us craft a schedule for the day, working with us to figure out exactly what photos we wanted, and also just getting to know us and our story. He was really calm and supportive, assuring me everything would be perfect even when it looked like it was going to pour rain for our outdoor wedding and when a button on my dress broke and we started running late in the morning. On the day of our wedding, he and an assistant went to my parent's house while his wife met my husband and the groomsmen at their hotel. After taking several getting ready photos, we all met at the venue for first look photos. Paul and his team were incredibly easy to work with, and made us feel completely relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. During the ceremony and reception, we barely noticed their presence yet they were able to capture all of the most important moments of the wedding both big and small. Paul had been to our venue on numerous occasions and was very knowledgeable about where to go for the best photos throughout the afternoon/evening. Since the wedding, he has been great with providing us our photos, as well as working with us on our wedding album. Paul and his team exceeded all of our expectations. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone without reservations!

Paul Francis photography totally blew us away! We wanted to find a photographer who was creative, professional and fit our budget. After we met Paul and had our engagement photos done with him, I knew we had made the right choice. He helped us put together our timeline for the day and kept me calm leading up to the wedding as well as the day of (not an easy feat!) and went above and beyond in every aspect. Our photographs are just breathtaking. My friends who work in fashion design, wedding planning and for Martha Stewart agree! I only wished he lived closer to us so we could use him for any and all functions!

Paul Francis Photography is amazing!! Choosing Paul as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

When we first met Paul for an initial consultation, we ended up chatting for over 2 hours! Paul is one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met. He showed us a lot of his previous work so we could get a good feel for his style and he answered any questions we had. When we left the consultation, we knew that Paul was going to be our photographer - we didn't even need to visit the rest of the photographers on our list.

Paul and I communicated a lot before the wedding, and Paul always responded very quickly. He gets all of the details about your wedding so he can plan properly for the day. He even created a wedding day schedule for us so we had an idea of what time everything should be happening (times girls should be ready, etc.), which was great and kept the wedding day stress-free. He is so organized and I knew we were in great hands for the wedding.

On the actual wedding day, he made us feel so comfortable with his kind and gentle personality, and was so professional in his approach. He described how the pictures would appear based on his techniques; using natural lighting and capturing authentic interactions. He also used both digital and film which gave us a variety of different pictures. We really felt certain that we would love the outcome! Throughout the remainder of the day, he required no attention from us, but he was always nearby capturing candid moments at the most perfect times.

After seeing our pictures, we could not be happier! They turned out so perfect and everyone is giving us so many compliments. We can't wait to work with Paul to start to put together our wedding album!

Thanks for everything Paul! You are truly the best photographer!!

Paul and Carolyn were absolutely amazing photographers! They captured the most special and beautiful moments in a non-intrusive, natural, and creative manner. I was specifically worried about photos looking too posed or artificial and too much/too little direction. However, he knew exactly what to say to make everyone's expression seem genuine and to make all feel at ease. Every single photograph is stunning. He also used both digital and film, which we love! Paul is completely on top of his craft with ample preparation and communication in advance of the wedding to ensure things run smooth and timely on the actual day. Paul stayed on top of the photo locations, which family members needed to stick around for photos, and even the weather! For preparation, Carolyn met with Josh (my husband) and Paul met with me and the bridesmaids and it was perfect. Throughout the evening, I hardly noticed their presence and was so grateful to see all the moments they captured at the ceremony and reception.

So, you'd be absolutely crazy not to pick Paul and Carolyn. They are simply the best out there! We are forever grateful!

Paul and Carolyn are nothing short of amazing. Great to work with and super easy to be around. I was in awe of our photos when I saw them. Paul makes it really easy to be yourself and relax in front of the camera. My girls and I had a blast with him. Carolyn and Paul also have a great eye for romantic photos, the poses we did came out so beautiful and relaxed. None of the pictures look staged! It was amazing. Both of our parents thought they were great and really accommodating and got all of the pictures they wanted. I would suggest them to anyone. They are true artists.
