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.

When planning our wedding, the most important thing to us was to have great pictures because they will last a lifetime. We are so happy we chose Paul Francis Photography. Our photos came out absolutely stunning and we will cherish them for years to come. Paul captured our wedding so well. I cannot chose a favorite photo because they're all stunning and each hold a special memory of that day. We cannot imagine choosing anyone else to photograph our wedding.

Paul's work speaks for itself---it's perfection, beautiful, and professional. We loved working with Paul. He made everything so easy with his online forms (that you can constantly update---and I did) and was responsive to our questions. On our wedding day, he kept everyone on time without feeling rushed or stressed. We are a bit camera shy, but Paul made us feel comfortable and gave us space to enjoy being with each other. When we got our photos back I was amazed at some of the angles and how close the photos were, because he was never intrusive. It really just felt like it was just us.

At the reception, he set up a slideshow of some of the pictures taken that day and gave us an album as a gift. We were blown away by the pictures and have no idea how he had time to print them. Him and his team had been with us all day! It made our day extra special and held us over until we received our photos. That kind of thoughtfulness and attention to detail was present throughout working with Paul and shows in our photos.

Paul and his team are truly professionals, and I would highly recommend choosing them for your wedding.

We used Paul Francis Photography to photograph our wedding last month and are beyond blown away with his work and are so happy with our decision! Paul and his team were extremely friendly, nice, accommodating, and most of all talented. Paul really took the time to get to know who we are as a couple and to go above and beyond to capture our vision for our wedding photographs that are timeless, classic, and will last a lifetime. His slideshow of images even brings my husband to tears every time we watch it. His attention to detail, talent, and ideas are impeccable and his photos definitely stand out - I knew right away when looking at vendors that he was the one for us. We received our photographs in record time and even gave us some the day of as a gift! I have never seen that! It was so exciting to see our images that were captured that day and everyone has been asking who our photographer was and want to use him for their own weddings!

Paul and his team are simply the best of the best. From our first conversation to our final planning meeting and with every email along the way, Paul was organized, kind, thoughtful and diligent. We could tell he truly cared about helping make our whole day the best it could be. He asked us all the right questions ahead of time and was 100% prepared. He and his team arrived early and made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable. They stuck to our busy timeline, kept things moving, kept us laughing and having fun and, of course, captured some phenomenal moments. Paul has such an incredible eye and his photographs reflect all the love and happiness we were feeling that day. He was thoughtful in everything he did and even went above and beyond with a slideshow of the pictures they had JUST TAKEN at the reception. Our guests were absolutely gushing about how beautiful the images were and we couldn’t agree more. Paul sent us our pictures very quickly after the wedding even during his busy season and we love every single one of them. Everything Paul did was absolutely flawless and we highly, highly recommend him.

First off, Paul is not just a photographer. From the minute you speak with him, he quickly becomes a friend. He radiates kindness – thoughtful and punctual, he was always offering insight and advice. He is everything a bride and groom need to ease the stresses of planning a wedding. Just as important as his character is his photography. After booking our venue, finding a photographer was first on my list. I knew I wanted a style that would stand the test of time. When I clicked on Paul’s blog, I instantly knew this was it. His attention to detail made each post feel as though I attended these couples’ weddings. He encompassed the entire day from start to finish without having to post a ton of photos. His style is clean, classic, and in the moment. I emailed Paul right away and so began our journey together. He helped us find our church for the ceremony since I did not live in the area, he brainstormed ideas with us to match our theme, and provided countless other kind gestures we will always look back on and smile at. As for our photos, there is not a single one we dislike, which is crazy because of how many photos were taken! Our photos look so natural (not posed) and you can genuinely see how happy we are in the moment. Paul captured the essence of us. We received all of our photos in record time, and even saw some the night of our wedding with a surprise slideshow! To this day everyone still talks about how beautiful our photos are, and we couldn’t agree more. Paul and his team created gorgeous memories we will be able to look back on and cherish forever. If you are trying to find a perfect photographer, I assure you to look no further. Paul truly cares about what he does, and you can see it radiate through both himself and his work. Aside from our actual wedding, Paul and his team were one of our favorite parts of our journey to the altar.

Working with Paul has been an absolute pleasure. From our very first meeting, through the wedding day and even now as we finalize the album design, Paul has been outstanding! We started working with Paul about a year before our wedding for our engagement shoot. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed, and it was great to watch him get creative and excited during the shoot. Throughout the buildup to the wedding he was so organized and responsive. Paul took the time to get to know us and that made us feel all the more comfortable. He gave us suggestions but also made sure to cater to our preferences. He even helped with planning suggestions not related to photography to help make sure our day went smoothly. On our wedding day he and his assistants Rachel and Anne were warm and professional. Paul has such a calming demeanor, in the flurry of the day he was relaxed, but also very organized and mindful of keeping on schedule. We had an extensive list of specific photos we needed to get with our families. When it came time to take those photos after our ceremony, he was very well organized and referred to our family members by name, which made the whole process run very smoothly. During our couple's portraits we felt completely at ease. It was a nice break in the action of the day where we felt like we were on our own private date! Paul and his team didn't rush us, and really went above and beyond to get some amazing shots. Anne even let me borrow her shoes to walk through a garden so that my heels wouldn't sink into the dirt! We trusted his creativity and his ideas, and we couldn't be happier with the photos that we're going to look at for the rest of our lives. At the reception he checked in with us to see if there were any more photos that we wanted to get, and gave us a lot of personal attention. We recommend Paul to any couple looking for a top notch photographer! We could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks Paul!

There are not enough positive things to say about Paul. From start to finish he felt like a friend/ extra pair of eyes/ wedding planner to help me through the process. He was extremely organized, helpful, open to ideas and thoughtful of our personalities and requests. Down to the smallest details, he was a class act and his staff were on par. We loved him and would recommend him to everyone. We look at him as part of our family and are beyond thrilled that we chose him for our special day.

There are very few words to describe the incredible talent that Paul has. From each step of the way, he was genuine, helpful, and caring. He truly looked at my husband and I as more than a customer and for that we were grateful. When planning our timeline, Paul called me and worked through my reservations and frustrations with certain things, offering input from his experience but not pushing us either way. We felt like we have known him forever. On our wedding day, he was prompt and had the timeline in hand. Because of his careful planning, we were able to stay exactly on schedule. Because of that, we were not rushed or stressed. We had even more time to enjoy all of our cocktail hour with our guests. To my surprise, Paul had set up a slideshow in the reception of the pictures that were taken that day for my guests to see. We even received a picture book at the end to hold us over. Paul is a caring and meticulous person and made sure everything that he did for us was perfect. I truly could not imagine having anyone else for my wedding and he was worth every penny. Our wedding album came very quickly and captured all of our memories perfectly. We truly could not have asked for anything better.

My wedding day would not have been the same without Paul. When my husband and I initially met with Paul, we could not believe how warm and personal he was. He even made us freshly baked chocolate cookies for the meeting! His overall persona made me feel confident in his abilities to capture our special day. This was reinforced during our engagement photo shoot. He really knows how to get couples to make the best faces for pictures and bring personality to the shot. The day of the wedding went even better than I anticipated. He brought an itemized list of all the pictures I requested and made sure we had enough time for each and every one. He was EXTREMELY organized and stayed on top of the rowdy bridal party. At the end of the reception, Paul handed Brian and I a small wedding album that he had made THAT DAY to 'hold me over' until the real pictures were done. He is soooo thoughtful and we are so grateful for that. WE LOVE PAUL and cannot wait for all of our pictures.

Paul Francis Photography is an outstanding vendor! My husband and I were married in August of 2015 and choosing to work with Paul and his team was one of the best decisions we made in regards to our wedding plans. Paul truly exceeded all of our expectations and was absolutely amazing to work with. Our wedding pictures capture who we are as a couple and tell the complete story of our wedding day. Our family and friends still cannot get over how beautiful both our engagement and wedding pictures are and continuously rave about how amazing our photographer was! Throughout our entire experience with him, he made us feel totally comfortable when working with him and 100% confident in his talent as a photographer. It was clear to us both that Paul genuinely cares about the couples he works with and treats each bride and groom like they are his number one priority. After our first meeting, it felt like we had just made a new friend opposed to a potential business partner. Paul went above and beyond in every aspect and was honestly one step ahead of me sometimes when thinking about the flow and timing of our wedding day which was seriously amazing! He always answered my emails or phone calls in a timely matter and put whatever concerns I had at ease. The day of our wedding, he was on time, organized, efficient, took all our wishes into account, and coordinated flawlessly with our other vendors and venue. My husband and I could both go on and on about how amazing it is to work with Paul because he is just that good. Not only is he extremely talented, but he is so invested in each couple he works with and is just such a nice person. We love our wedding pictures and cannot thank Paul enough for the outstanding job he did. If you are searching for a photographer who is able to capture a moment that looks natural, beautiful, and timeless then look no further because Paul is the absolute best choice!
