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.

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.

All of my friends know that I have the worst anxiety when planning events, so when I was extremely calm the week leading up to the wedding, everyone was asking what was up. Here's the key: hire vendors that are well organized, professional, and see your vision.

Paul and Carolyn's organization and professionalism shined in how they keep in touch throughout the entire time leading up to your wedding. They are very quick to respond to any question or concern to make you feel at ease. My greatest worry during the planning process was trying to create a timeline for the wedding day, and I was so relieved when Paul emailed me to give me an update saying he was working on a timeline for me (I almost had to stop myself from asking if he can also write my lesson plans). His timeline included everything including who needed to be where and when from just us to our bridal party, and family members.

Paul and Carolyn's photography style is exactly what we wanted for our photos and to remember our day. Paul's love of architecture and lighting played beautifully in our first look and Center City bridal party photos. We then moved on to a park in Old City and you could tell how excited he was about shooting the lush greens and florals in our couple's portraits. The way Paul and Carolyn are able to envision two vastly different backdrops and capture equally stunning photographs is very telling of how talented these two photographers are.

Thank you, Paul and Carolyn, for being with us on our wedding day and capturing our memories so beautifully.

We cannot express enough how happy we are that it was Paul who was with us, he truly is not only
exceptional at what he does, but he is also simply a wonderful person. From the moment we met him, we knew we wanted him to be our photographer, he has a great attention to detail and impeccably organized. From all of my last minute questions to the ring bearer needing to go to the emergency room, he took it all in stride and made sure that we got all the photos we wanted. We also did a photobooth through him, and our guests and us had a blast! He brought a great calmness to our day and helped us to truly focus on what matters, each other, and we cannot thank him enough for that. We thank him for his patience, kindness and the joy he showed us all day long. As we walked back to the hotel together, we both looked at one another smiling and unanimously agreed that he was our favorite person of the day and we could not have worked with anyone better. We had an amazing day and he helped to make sure of that. We received so many compliments on his photographs of us, our friends and family were amazed at his beautiful work, and the surprise book at the end of the night almost made me cry. Last night he sent us our photographs, and they were just as expected... Amazing! We would choose Paul all over again, you cannot put a price on someone capturing beautiful memories of your day and moments you forgot happened (because the day goes so fast!), Paul captured our day exactly how we remembered it, we could not be happier :) Thank you Paul!!!!

Paul and Carolyn were not only incredible professionals, but incredible people as well. We could not ask for anything more than what was provided to us on our wedding day. From our first sit down meeting, Paul took us though every detail and made us feel comfortable and confident with our big day and the days leading up to the wedding. They were organized, prompt, and creative. When we received our pictures, we were blown away by the quality and artistic edge that Paul Francis Photography was known for. We would HIGHLY recommend their services to anyone who wants to have their special moment captured in such a beautiful and artistic way.

Paul is a fantastic photographer and was a key component to our wedding going so smoothly. He came up with a schedule so we knew when we had to be ready and when different groups from our wedding party could go to the venue and made sure we got there on time. From our first meeting, he was very organized and ran everything by us well ahead of time to get our approval. Initially my husband and I had wanted first look pictures on the beach but he scoped it out that day again and saw that it was a bit crowded at that time because it was such a beautiful warm day. He wanted something more secluded for us and found a fantastic, very private spot by our condo with a nice tree to shade us. It looked like we were meeting by a garden wall in Europe. It was perfect! Overall it was a very easy experience all around and he is super nice, helpful, creative, and friendly as was his assistant. We love our pictures and we had our final beautiful product in hand 1 month to the day of the wedding. Start to finish -- superb!

First, Book Paul Francis Photography before you finish reading the review! This way, you'll definitely have the best wedding photos you could ever imagine!! Paul is such a professional! My husband-to-be and I met with him and instantly knew he'd be perfect. As a designer my self, I wanted a certain high-end photo journalist style. Paul's portfolio & blog speak for itself, but let me tell you his pictures are phenomenal! After the wedding is complete, you only have the memories & the photographs-so make sure that they are amazing. I had friends & relatives attend our wedding that were also engaged. After they met Paul & saw some of his photos, they tried to break their contract with whatever other photographer they had! He is really simply amazing. His personality, professionalism, creativity, and sense of humor make him such an amazing person. He has such a quiet confidence and wonderful eye for capturing the most amazing moments. Our wedding day was perfect, despite some rain and he couldn't have been more calm! We didn't mind getting a little wet but he offered to run down from the barn and get us an umbrella too! In addition to the wedding photography, I'd also personally recommend having an engagement shoot to get to know him & feel comfortable, so on your big day you'll know what to expect, since there is a lot of time with just the three of you! The photo booth option worked out really well for us too. It got our guests really involved and gave us some great funny pictures! Overall, I would highly recommend Paul Francis Photography for your wedding or special occasion photography. He is simply the best!!
