Paul Rich has a natural gift for capturing real moments. Known for his ability to put his subjects at ease, he uses an artist’s sense of composition with a technician’s knowledge of light. Paul has a talent for quietly capturing the lovely tender vignettes that will evoke the feeling of your event for years to come.

Paul pursued wedding photography at the early age of 13. He began working as a photographer's assistant and photographed his first wedding by the time he turned 18. While earning his degree in photography at Bard College in New York, Paul had the opportunity to study with such notable photographers as Stephen Shore and Larry Fink.

Paul is an award-winning member of The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (an organization comprised of photojournalists and documentary-style wedding photographers from around the world). He is a regular contributor to such wedding sites as Style Me Pretty and his wedding images have been published in Portland Monthly’s Bride & Groom magazine. Recent destination wedding assignments include such locations as Kauai, St Lucia, and Martha's Vineyard. Read less

My husband and I are beyond pleased to have chosen Paul as our wedding photographer. We knew Paul was “the one” just moments after meeting him because of his fun-loving attitude and willingness to push the creative envelope. From the engagement shoot to the wedding, Paul was incredibly generous with his time (e.g., he drove 5 hours round-trip simply to scout out our wedding venue!). We went out for drinks on several occasions to get to know one another, discuss our vision for the wedding, and after the wedding, to view his pictures of our big day projected large scale on the wall of his studio. The photographs speak for themselves. The 550 images Paul gave us (file sizes both large and small) are so stunning it was nearly impossible to narrow down a set of 100 favorites to post on Facebook! Overall, A++! We already can’t wait for Paul to shoot pregnancy and family shots in the (hopefully) near future!

My wife and I live in Chicago and were planning our wedding in Oregon. Our wedding planner suggested Paul as the photographer and we were a little nervous because we wouldn't have a chance to actually sit down and meet him. He was great though!!! We had a few conference calls were he asked us for our vision of the wedding and did an amazing job of putting us at ease. He walked us through the whole process and helped us provide him with all the information we needed. He did an amazing job at the wedding too. He was extremely well organized and prepared. He really knew what shots he was looking for and how to get them. The pictures turned out incredible. Highly recommend!!!

Paul photographed our wedding in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico last December. We chose Paul because of his reputation, recommendations, and his portfolio. When it was all said and done, it was all the little things he did to keep our wedding organized and efficient. There are thousands of people that can take great photos, but very few who can 'run the show.' When you hire him, you get a person who doesn't just take amazing photos, but someone who gives you peace of mind and is so detail oriented that people know exactly what to do and when to do it. There was NEVER any chaos. These type of things made our wedding day stress free and that's why I recommend Paul. I can't say enough good things.

Our experience with Paul was fantastic! We flew him out from Portland to Rhode Island for our wedding. Since we weren't local, we were able to talk with Paul over the phone for planning. He made everything very easy for us. He explained different scenarios of how the day could go and worked with us on the photos we wanted and the timeline of the day. Paul's professionalism, planning and photography skills are second to none and we are so happy we chose Paul for our big day. When the big day came, everything went off without a hitch just as we had planned. Afterwards, he kept us posted on the progress of our pictures and put together a wedding album design for us and worked with us until it was the album we wanted. We couldn't be happier with how the pictures and album turned out! We absolutely recommend Paul. You will not be disappointed.

Paul was amazing - truly. He was there for us through all of the planning, and on the day of the wedding, had some incredible ideas about how to respond to a short sprinkle that threatened to undo all of our planning! He was fun to work with, took great pictures of our families, and the dancing, and also captured some of the details of the set-up that we loved, but never would have thought to ask for. Paul really is a wonderful photographer to work with, and I would wholeheartedly recommend him!
